There are so many champions to choose from in League of Legends, each with their own unique abilities and playstyles. Some Champions are more comfortable learning the basics while others require extensive game knowledge to take advantage of their more specific style truly.
Here are a few Champions you should try when you’re first getting to grips with playing League of Legends.
Part of playing at a lower rank or level of gameplay surrounds yourself with other newer players too. Although this means your skills are more matched up, it also means that the champions you should use for learning are often fought for by your team.
Some people choose to buy their League of Legends Accounts to skip this and jump into games with more reliable teams that use other Champions, allowing you to pick a more straightforward Champion to play as.
Perfect for learning the Top Lane tactics, Darius is reasonably simple to understand. Most of Darius’ power comes from his abilities that destroy your enemies fairly quickly if you manage to land a few hits consecutively. The ‘E’ allows you to hook enemies to lay into them with auto-attacks and other abilities. Darius’ auto-attacks are quite strong. The main effect of Darius’ abilities is ‘bleeding.’ This causes consistent damage to your opponent. Applying multiple bleeds increases the severity of the recurring damage, quickly draining your opponent’s health.
There are, of course, ways to perfect your Darius game-play, but to begin with, just try out using basic abilities and ensure to step back and leave yourself room for escape when in danger.
Miss Fortune is possibly the most popular champion for newer players. Due to her passive bonuses of increased damage based on auto-attacks, she acts as a much more forgiving champion to farm with. Her abilities also allow players to maneuver around shots more quickly than other Champions, perfect for avoiding extra damage. Her ability ‘Bullet Time’ is one of the best team fighting abilities available in the game, especially for beginner players. Use this ability well, and you’re sure to be an asset to any team.
Playing as Nunu really just is an enjoyable experience. You can get into the heart of the combat with the sustain and utility for newer players to be able to take a few hits while finding their way through the jungle. Less about the micro play for beginner’s the farming abilities Nunu has allows you to simply jump on opportunities rather than thinking too much about pathing or navigation. There’s nothing much more fun than rolling around a ball of destruction into your enemies and clearing the path for your team to take control.
Try as many as you like
Even though we’ve given you three of the most accessible champions, the matter of fact is there are so many Champions with so many playstyles that really it’s about finding the ones that suit you. You’ll never know which Champion is right for you until you try. So, just take some time to have fun, try new things and see what you can do with the Champions you like the look and abilities of!
