League of Legends: Wild Rift – Top 5 Support Champions

  1. Alistar, the Minotaur
  2. Blitzcrank, the Great Steam Golem
  3. Braum, the Heart of the Freljord
  4. Soraka, the Star Child
  5. Malphite, Shard of the Monolith

Undoubtedly, support is one of those roles that can either make or break a game for you. While playing with a support champion, your primary objective is to protect your marksman from getting killed in the dragon lane and team fights. Mostly, support players are the ones who make decisions for the team, be it engaging or disengaging from a team fight, or when to and when not to fight around objectives like elemental dragons, turrets, and baron nashor. 

While playing as a support, you can always roam around the map to catch enemies off-guard, but you need to make sure that your marksman is safe. Apart from keeping the ally marksman safe, a support player’s crucial responsibility is to ward at areas around the map or sweep enemy wards to deny the vision.

Today, we’ll be looking at the top five support champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift that you should definitely play when you’re playing in a trio or with a stacked five-person team (playing solo as support is not recommended!) But first, let’s discuss the advantages and disadvantages of playing as support in LoL Wild Rift.

Pro’s of playing as a Support: You can make rotations in mid to late game either with your assassin or your jungler. In team fights, all you’re supposed to do is protect your marksman or mage. As a support, you don’t have to worry about last hits/farming.

Con’s of playing as a Support: While playing as a support, you get the lowest amount of gold since you’re not farming. Hence, getting to your items quickly is not an option. Moreover, you’re not the primary source of damage for the team, but the enemy team might primarily target you in team fights.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at our top 5 support champion picks!

1. Alistar, the Minotaur

Alistar is the most versatile support champion in the game right now. The amount of damage Alistar can absorb in skirmishes/team fights and the crowd control in his kit is why he is an ‘S’ tier champion. Alistar can easily isolate an enemy champion of his choice with his third skill, ‘Trample,’ a single target stun. If you play Alistar with perfection and land all your combos, then it’s over for the enemy team. Alistar (alongside Braum) is the go-to support champion in Dragon Lane. 

Difficulty Level: Slightly High

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Exhaust or Flash + Ignite

Recommended Keystones: Aftershock

Item Build: Protector’s Vow, Zeke’s Convergence, Locket Enchant, Dead Man’s Plate, Spirit Visage, and Randuin’s Omen

2. Blitzcrank, the Great Steam Golem

Blitzcrank is the most overpowered support champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift because of his play-making ability. Despite the nerfs in patch 1.1, Blitzcrank is still an ‘S’ tier support champion. Thanks to his play-making potential from his first skill, ‘Rocket Grab,’ he is still played often. He is easy to play with and useful as well. You can turn the tide of the battle in your favor by landing a critical hook on an enemy mage/marksman. The silence on his ultimate ‘Static Field’ can also play a significant role in team fights. 

Difficulty Level: Easy

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Exhaust or Flash + Ignite

Recommended Keystones: Aftershock

Item Build: Protector’s Vow, Zeke’s Convergence, Spirit Visage, Dead Man’s Plate, Locket Enchant, and Randuin’s Omen

3. Braum, the Heart of the Freljord

Due to his passive, ‘Concussive Blows,’ Braum is considered one of the most reliable support champions. Braum excels at small-skirmishes, and 2v2’s in Dragon Lane because of the abilities in his kit. His ability to dash to an ally champion, slow/knock-up enemy champions and the ability to block incoming damage from projectiles makes him quite versatile. 

Difficulty Level: Easy

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Exhaust or Flash + Ignite

Recommended Keystones: Font of Life or Aftershock

Item Build: Protector’s Vow, Zeke’s Convergence, Locket Enchant, Dead Man’s Plate, and Randuin’s Omen

4. Soraka, the Star Child

If you’re looking to play a support champion that can keep your health bar full at all times, then Soraka is the right choice for you. With her second ability, ‘Astral Infusion’ and her ultimate, ‘Wish,’ she can heal a particular ally or the entire ally team, respectively. Moreover, she got a decent silence with her third skill, ‘Equinox,’ which can silence all the enemies inside the circle. The only problem with Soraka is that she is quite squishy and is an easy target for assassins in late game team fights. 

Difficulty Level: Easy

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Heal, Exhaust, or Ignite

Recommended Keystones: Aery

Item Build: Ardent Censer, Harmonic Echo, Locket Enchant, Athene’s Unholy Grail, Zeke’s Convergence, and Protector’s Vow

5. Malphite, Shard of the Monolith

Malphite is one of the most robust tank champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift as he can be played in multiple lanes such as Baron Lane, Jungle, Mid Lane, and even as a Support. However, building armor, health, and magic resistance on him is the ideal choice. He can absorb a fair amount of damage in all game stages, thanks to the passive shield. 

With his ultimate, Malphite can knock up multiple enemies at once. He can also escape from a bad situation with the use of his ultimate. Malphite’s ultimate can be combined with champions such as Amumu, Braum, Oriana, and Yasuo. 

Difficulty Level: Moderate

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Exhaust or Flash + Ignite

Recommended Keystones: Aftershock or Conqueror

Item Build: Sunfire Cape, Dead Man’s Plate, Locket Enchant, Randuin’s Omen, Spirit Visage, and Warmog’s Armor

League of Legends: Wild Rift – Top 5 Support Champions

If you are looking for some other viable support champions, then you can try out the following as well: 

  1. Amumu – Due to his kit’s abilities, Amumu is considered a powerful ganking jungler after he unlocks his ultimate. He can stun the entire enemy team at once with his ultimate, ‘Curse of the Sad Mummy.’
  2. Singed – Undoubtedly, Singed is the most irritating champion to play against in League of Legends: Wild Rift. He is mostly played in Baron Lane. Due to his kit’s versatility, he can also dish out decent Ability Power damage with his poison trail. Singed is incredibly tanky in the late game.
  3. Other healing Ability Power damage based champions like Seraphine, Sona, and Nami.
