League of Legends: Wild Rift – Top 5 Marksmen

Attack Damage Carry (ADC) champions, often termed as ‘Marksmen,’ are the most dangerous champions when you reach the late-game phase in a Wild Rift match. You may ask why? Well, it’s because they can dish out massive damage in a matter of seconds, and this is generally termed as DPS (Damage Per Second), and the ‘marksman class’ in League of Legends: Wild Rift has the highest DPS as compared to other categories of champions.

Pros of playing Marksmen: Highest damage in the later stages of the game, the potential of carrying the games for your team, teams plays around you, and you have a dedicated support champion to protect you.

Cons of playing Marksmen: Very squishy and easy to kill in the late game, enemy assassin or tank champion might target you in team fights and run you over. You’re the priority target of the enemy team in most of the games.

To help you figure out the best marksmen in the current meta (Patch 1.1) in LoL Wild Rift, we’ve come up with this roundup where we will talk about the top five marksmen. We will also mention the best rune setups, item builds, and more for each of these five champions.

1. Ezreal, the Prodigal Explorer

Surprise! Surprise! Despite the nerfs to his damage from his primary ability ‘Mystic Shot’ and his core item ‘Manamune,’ Ezreal is still a top-tier marksman. He is probably the only spell-based damage marksmen in the game who excels in bursting down opponents in a short time.
What makes Ezreal one of the best marksmen in League of Legends: Wild Rift is his ability (Arcane Shift) to blink over walls and enemy skill shots (at times) to properly position in team fights. With his ultimate, ‘Trueshot Barrage,’ which is a cross-map ultimate, Ezreal can deal damage to multiple enemy champions that the skill passes through.

Difficulty Level: Moderate

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Heal

Recommended Keystones: Conqueror or Fleet Footwork

Core Items: Manamune, Trinity Force or Iceborn Gauntlet, Quicksilver/Ionian Stasis Enchant (depending on the situation), Death’s Dance, Mortal Reminder or Guardian Angel

2. Jhin, the Virtuoso

Jhin is one of the most challenging marksmen to play in Wild Rift. It is primarily because of his passive as Jhin’s auto-attacks carry only four shots, and after using all of them, Jhin has to reload his weapon, which consumes a small amount of time. His third skill, ‘Captive Audience,’ Jhin can place traps anywhere on the map that detonates when minions or enemy champions walk over it. Moreover, these traps grant some amount of vision to Jhin and his ally team.

Another reason why Jhin is considered difficult to play is that his ultimate, ‘Curtain Call,’ is slightly tricky to control. You need to put in a reasonable amount of practice in the training/practice tool to grip this skill.

Difficulty Level: Slightly High

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Heal or Barrier

Recommended Keystones: Fleet Footwork

Core Items: Youmuu’s Ghostblade, Infinity Edge, Quicksilver Enchant, Bloodthirster, Rapid Firecannon, Mortal Reminder or Guardian Angel

3. Jinx, the Loose Cannon

If you’re a veteran League of Legends PC player, then you must be familiar with the word ‘hyper-carry.’ Jinx is the only hyper-carry marksmen in our list of top five. Despite having a weak early game with little to zero impact, she’s a complete monster in the late game. Jinx also gets bonus range on his first skill if you build the item ‘Rapid Firecannon’ with her.

Even though she is a squishy marksman with no dash or blink ability, she can root enemies with her third skill, ‘Flame Chompers!’ if appropriately placed in team fights. With her cross-map ultimate, ‘Mega Death Rocket,’ Jinx can easily snipe down any enemy champion that’s escaping on low health.

Difficulty Level: Easy

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Heal or Barrier

Recommended Keystones: Fleet Footwork or Conqueror

Core Items: Infinity Edge, Rapid Firecannon, Quicksilver Enchant, Runaan’s Hurricane, Bloodthirster, Mortal Reminder or Guardian Angel

4. Vayne, the Night Hunter

Vayne is probably the only marksmen in our top five list, which can be flexed in multiple lanes (can be played in both Dragon and Baron Lane). Because of the true damage from his second skill, ‘Silver Bolts,’ some players prefer playing Vayne in the jungle as well. Vayne is strong against tanks in Baron Lane, and that’s why he is mostly played to counter tanks and fighters.

Vayne can also go into invisibility during Tumble for a small-time with his ultimate, ‘Final Hour,’ which also grants him increased attack damage, reduced Tumble cooldown, and bonus movement speed from his passive, ‘Night Hunter.’

Difficulty Level: Slightly High

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Heal or Barrier

Recommended Keystones: Conqueror or Fleet Footwork

Core Items: Infinity Edge, Blade of the Ruined King, Phantom Dancer, Quicksilver Enchant, Death’s Dance or Frozen Mallet, Mortal Reminder or Guardian Angel

5. Kai’Sa, Daughter of the Void

As per the abilities in her kit, Kai’Sa is the most complex marksman in Wild Rift. First of all, the abilities in her kit can be upgraded one by one to gain more powerful properties on purchasing items. Moreover, she can go invisible for a short time once you upgrade her third skill, ‘Supercharge.’ The skill also comes in handy when attempting to escape from certain deadly situations.

Her kit’s best ability is the ultimate ability, ‘Killer Instinct,’ which allows Kai’Sa to dash to an enemy champion that has been marked with her ‘Plasma’ effect.

Difficulty Level: High

Go-To Summoner Spells: Flash + Heal or Barrier

Recommended Keystones: Fleet Footwork or Conqueror

Core Items: Manamune/Phantom Dancer, Blade of the Ruined King, Quicksilver Enchant, Infinity Edge, Death’s Dance or Bloodthirster, Mortal Reminder or Guardian Angel

League of Legends: Wild Rift – Top 5 Marksmen

Recently, Draven was released in Wild Rift. The difficulty of the champion and how Draven scales off in the late game is why he did not make it to our top five marksmen list. Moreover, Riot Games has not said anything about the champions that might release in the future. With enough marksmen already present in the pool of 50 champions, it is doubtful that a new marksman will be releasing in the coming update.

If you want to know more about the specific runes you should be taking with the champions mentioned above, you can check our guide that explains everything about runes and keystones. Moreover, the first official ranked season in Wild Rift is going to start sometime in January 2021. New in-game content like champions, skins, and events will be coming to the game once the official ranked season kicks-off.
