[Top 10] LoL Best Beginner Champions

LoL Best Beginner Champions

There are a lot of characters to play in League of Legends so it is natural to not know where to start. Before you go on and enter the rift, it is a good idea to get a general idea about the characters in the game.

This list tells about 10 champions which are good choices for a beginner player and getting an idea of the game.

10.  Rammus, the Armordillo

Rammus is a sturdy character in the game. He tanks quite hard and he can deal a considerable amount of damage too. His passive allows him to deal bonus damage and his skills allow him to reflect damage and taunt the enemies around him. His Q makes him curl into a ball and roll forward, gaining speed as he goes and hits the first enemy character, slowing and knocking enemies around him back while dealing damage, or he stops rolling after the skill timer runs out.

Why Rammus is great for a beginner? :

  • Sturdy champion, hard to kill
  • Easy to learn, not many tactics surrounding him
  • Can deal massive damage around him, double damage to structures, with his ultimate

9. Lux, the Lady of Luminosity

One of the easiest champions to understand, Lux is a generally quick champion to pick op. Her play style relies heavily on skill use and she has enough survivability when she encounters a bad situation. She has good CC in her skill set and she can be played in both mid lane and as a support role. Though support Lux is not that popular nowadays. She can cast a shield on herself and allies and her passive enables her to deal massive amounts of damage.

Why Lux is great for a beginner? :

  • Easy to learn skills
  • Good amount of control
  • Can root up to 2 enemies and slows with her E before damaging
  • A huge range on her skills, especially on her ultimate

8. Sivir, the Battle Mistress

Sivir is one of the harder champions to get used to as she has a unique mechanic. She can cancel a single skill aiming at her with her shield and if she succeeds in this, she replenishes mana. Though this is the only complex point of Sivir as she focuses on dealing damage with mostly her basic attacks. Her passives allows her to chase her enemies easily as she damages and her Q can deal a lot of damage on the early levels especially. Her ultimate grants her and her allies a decaying move speed buff and her W gives her auto attacks the ability to jump from enemy to enemy.

Why Sivir is great for a beginner? :

  • Heavily uses her basic attacks to deal damage
  • Can become a powerhouse in the late game easily
  • Can deal high damage in the early game, making poking easy

7. Sona, Maven of the Strings

Sona was, and mostly is, one of the most popular characters in the game for a while. Her skills cast an aura around her, buffing Sona's allies for a duration and buffing her basic attacks. She is a powerful support and an excellent healer. Her CC can determine the outcome of a fight and to top it all off, she is really easy to learn and relatively easy to master.

Why Sona is great for a beginner? :

  • A strong support but can be played as a carry
  • Easy to understand skills and combo
  • Medium difficulty of mastering
  • A strong CC that can change the outcome of a team fight

6. Soraka, the Starchild

Soraka is an excellent champion to learn at the early stages of your League of Legends timeline if you want to play as a support. She is like an ambulance as she runs faster to her allies that need immediate medical attention (allies that are low on health). She even sacrifices her own health to heal her allies. She can heal every one of her allies regardless of range and her damaging skills deal minimal damage, instead focusing on silencing and slowing.

Why Soraka is great for a beginner? :

  • Good amount of CC
  • High healing
  • High speed
  • Easy to master

5. Annie, the Dark Child

Annie may be just a child with a teddy bear, but she is not to be underestimated. Her pyrokinesis will reduce her opponents to ash. She casts a fire shield on her to reduce incoming damage and reflect a small amount of basic attack damage. She hurls a fireball at her opponents to deal huge damage to them and she disintegrates her opponents who were unfortunate enough to stand in front of her. Her passive allows her to stun her enemies every 4 skill use and her ultimate makes her throw her teddy bear, Tibbers, and make him a gigantic flaming bear, dealing damage around it and attacking targets Annie tells it to.

Why Annie is great for a beginner? :

  • Powerful skills
  • Good CC
  • High survivability

4. Nasus, the Curator of the Sands

If you want to have a leisurely time while you play the game, Nasus may be the choice for you. His play style is farming, through and through. His Q gains damage as he kill enemies with it. His kit also contains a good AoE DoT and a good slow. His ultimate also increases his size and health pool temporarily so his survivability is top notch. His passive also gives him bonus Life Steal so his sustain is good as well. Overall he is suited for players who want to focus on one thing.

Why Nasus is great for beginners? :

  • Good lane pushing
  • Easy to play
  • High sustain and survivability
  • High single target damage

3. Warwick, the Uncaged Wrath of Zaun

Warwick is a good choice for players who want to learn jungle. His roaming speed is good and therefore can tolerate mistakes to some extent. He can also stay in the jungle for days as he can heal himself a considerable amount every time he casts Q. His passive also heals him when he falls under 50% HP. His W marks enemies below a certain HP threshold and makes Warwick run towards them at a high speed and attack faster. His E reduces incoming damage for a duration and after that frightens the enemies around him. His ultimate makes him jump to an enemy and heal himself while dealing a lot of damage.

Why Warwick is great for beginners? :

  • High sustain and ganking capabilities
  • High speed
  • High single target damage

2. Master Yi, the Wuju Bladesman

Known in the community as the 'Right Click Champ', Master Yi is the easiest character to learn in the game. His kit is what earned him the name 'Right Click Champ' as it makes his basic attacks stronger. His passive makes him attack twice every fourth basic attack and his E makes him deal bonus true damage. His ultimate makes him faster and immune to slow effects and his W heals him. His lane clearing and jungle roaming speed is top notch as well with his Q. You can see 6 out of 10 Master Yi players scoring a Pentakill almost every other game.

Why Master Yi is great for beginners? :

  • Easy to understand skills
  • Easy to learn and master
  • High sustain and single target damage

1. Ashe, the Frost Archer

The original practice champion of the game. Ashe is the easiest champion to understand, though she can be a hard to master thoroughly. Her kit focuses on slowing her enemies and awareness of the enemy positions. She has 2 global skills, her E which grants vision along its course and her ultimate which stuns the first enemy hit and dealing damage around the target. Her W fires off a volley that deals damage and slows every enemy hit and her Q makes Ashe fire at a faster rate.

Why Ashe is great for beginners? :

  • High vision
  • High damage and critical damage
  • Slows on basic attacks so high kiting
  • Global sniping ultimate ability which deals AoE damage and slow
