Mid-lane champions hold the line in the middle of the Summoner's Rift. That being said, they've got to be the best pick possible as they're often relied upon to carry a single lane all by themselves.

Needless to say, you'll need an incredibly strong pick for the mid-lane as losing it early will almost certainly result in defeat.

With 35 champions to choose from, picking the right one is pivotal. Lucky for you, we've put together a tier list ranking all the mid-lane champions in Wild Rift. We've taken into account the recent Wild Rift Patch 4.2 balance changes.

Here's an overview of our tier list for the mid-lane champions in Wild Rift. As you can tell, S-tier means the very best picks in the game for the current meta. As you descend the list, the less viable these champions become.

Let's dive a little deeper into why these champions rank where they do.

  • Aurelion Sol
  • Lux
  • Brand
  • Annie
  • Morgana
