  4. Alternative Champions to these Assassins

How often do you get to see the grey screen in League of Legends: Wild Rift? Well, most often, it’s because your champion got assassinated by an enemy champion like Zed, Fizz, Evelynn, and Annie.

If you’re wondering, which are the strongest assassin champions in LoL Wild Rift at the moment, we’ve got you covered. In this roundup, we’ll be talking about some of the most dominating assassin champions in Wild Rift. Moreover, we’ll be putting them under respective ‘tiers’ based on their popularity among the players, their kit’s potential, and their game-changing factors.

S Tier

1. Zed, the Master of Shadows

Zed is by far the best assassin champion in League of Legends: Wild Rift. Zed can literally kill any squishy champion in a single combo. Veteran MOBA players may find it easier to play with Zed in comparison to players who are new to the game. The best thing about Zed is that he can switch his position with his shadows from his second skill, ‘Living Shadow,’ and his ultimate skill, ‘Death Mark.’

Zed can dish out tons of physical damage in a short time, which makes him a lethal champion. Build pure armor-penetration (Lethality) and cooldown reduction (CDR) is a must with him. The only drawback of playing Zed is that the enemy team can build Ionian Stasis to counter his ultimate ‘Death Mark’. Not to forget, Zed is one of the champions that require good mechanics and needs a lot of practice to get going with him.

Difficulty Level: Slightly High

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Ignite

Recommended Keystones: Electrocute

Core Items: Youmuu’s Ghostblade, Quicksilver/Ionian Stasis Enchant, Duskblade of Draktharr, and Mortal Reminder

2. Master Yi, the Wuju Bladesman

Master Yi is one of the strongest jungle champions in LoL Wild Rift after player favorites like Lee Sin, Xin Zhao, and Shyvana. He is easy to play champion with huge damage potential because of his first and second skills, ‘Alpha Strike’ and ‘Wuju Style,’ respectively. With Master Yi’s ultimate ‘Highlander,’ you can either enter or exit from a team fight as per the situation. He can also self-heal and sustain during jungle clear with his second skill, ‘Meditate.’

The main issue with Master Yi is that despite being a perfect assassin sort of a champion, his ganking potential is not that good compared to other jungle champions in the game. Master Yi is easy to counter; all you need to do is either crowd-control him or use the summoner spell ‘Exhaust.’

Difficulty Level: Easy

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Smite

Recommended Keystones: Conqueror

Core Items: Statikk Shiv, Blade of the Ruined King, Quicksilver Enchant, and Bloodthirster/Frozen Mallet

Best Assassin Champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift

A Tier

1. Evelynn, Agony’s Embrace

No matter which champion you’re playing in a 5v5 MOBA game like Wild Rift, positioning is a very crucial aspect. At level 5, Evelynn’s passive ‘Demon Shade’ grants her invisibility. Due to her passive, she is excellent when it comes to ganking and is like a nightmare for marksmen in the later stages of the game. Moreover, this passive also grants Evelynn some health regeneration when she’s below 320 health.

Since Wild Rift doesn’t have ‘Pink Wards’ so far, it’s tough to see a sneaking Evelynn unless she breaks her invisibility by attacking an enemy champion. Also, Evelynn’s ultimate ‘Last Caress’ is a great tool to escape a losing skirmish/team fight.
Difficulty Level: High

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Smite

Recommended Keystones: Electrocute

Core Items: Infinity Orb, Liandry’s Torment, Ionian Statis Enchant, and Rabadon’s Deathcap

Best Assassin Champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift

2. Akali, the Rogue Assassin

Just like Zed, Akali also requires good mechanics and practice to perform well. Akali has her way of going in and out of the team fights. Thanks to her third skill, ‘Shuriken Flip,’ she can mark an enemy champion and dash back to it within a short time. Akali’s kit provides her with options to dish out a burst of damage and even escape safely after assassinating an enemy champion.

Her second skill, ‘Twilight Shroud,’ helps her go invisible for some time. She can also play around with this ability to either deal damage or to escape.

Difficulty Level: High

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Ignite

Recommended Keystones: Electrocute or Conqueror

Core Items: Infinity Orb, Awakened Soulstealer, Ionian Stasis Enchant, and Rabadon’s Deathcap

Best Assassin Champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift

3. Fizz, the Tidal Trickster

Fizz is one of those champions in Wild Rift that has the highest damage output. His two mobility-focused spells let Fizz manoeuver in and out of team fights with ease. Fizz is good at taking out squishy champions due to the single-target abilities in his kit. Moreover, his one on one potential is amazing.

The only drawback with Fizz is that if you miss your ultimate ‘Chum The Waters’ on your target, you miss out on a lot of damage.

Difficulty Level: Moderate

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Ignite

Recommended Keystones: Electrocute

Core Items: Lich Bane, Morellonomicon, Hextech Gunblade, Ionian Stasis Enchant, and Rabadon’s Deathcap

Best Assassin Champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift

B Tier

1. Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox

Ahri is one of the game champions with high mobility, thanks to her second skill, ‘Fox-Fire’ and her ultimate ‘Spirit Rush.’ Ahri’s deadly combo can quickly kill any squishy champion in a single rotation of the abilities. Also, it’s almost impossible to chase down a running Ahri because of the three dashes on her ultimate ability.

With the third skill, ‘Charm,’ which is the only crowd-control ability in her kit, Ahri makes the target move towards her and take more damage from her for a short time.

Difficulty Level: Moderate

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Ignite

Recommended Keystones: Electrocute

Core Items: Luden’s Echo, Awakened Soulstealer, Ionian Stasis Enchant, and Rabadon’s Deathcap
