And if you want to try out the game for yourself, then here are seven of the champions you ought to use in your first games.
These champions are part of the League of Legends’ own roster of starting champions for beginners due to their skills and roles.
Garen is The Might of Demacia, a warrior who devoted his life to protecting the kingdom. In the Summoner’s Rift, he is a melee fighter who is armed with a magic-resistant armor and wields a broadsword. His advantage is his strong, physical DPS, and his tank built. This is one of the reasons why beginners often choose to Garen as their top lane champion. Aside from that, his tool kit is perfect for trading hits especially in one-on-one skirmishes.
Ashe is the Frost Archer and The Queen of the Freljord. With the legendary Avarosa True Ice Bow on her hands, Ashe can take aim with a giant frozen bow and use her Ranger’s focus to put her enemies in rigid oblivion. With a full suite of crowd control abilities and utility, Ashe can harass enemies in her lane and deliver high impact damage when built with the right items. Her ultimate ability, Enchanted Crystal Arrow, is also a good skill to use when initiating attacks.
Lux is a powerful young light mage of Demacia, gaining the title as The Lady of Luminosity. In the fields of Summoner’s Rift, Lux has great zone control abilities, giving her an advantage over her enemies. Her Lucent Singularity can prevent an enemy’s advance or escape. While she has her Prismatic Barrier to protect her and her allies from attacks. Lastly, her last ability Final Spark can deal high damage to her enemies.
Ryze is an ancient and hard-bitten archmage that wields an immense arcane power which he uses to hunt for World Runes. His passive skill Overload allows him to optimize for maximum damage or maximum survivability. While his Spell Flux has a short cooldown allowing him to use it to spread the damage to many enemies. His last skill, Realm Warp, to open a portal around him and all his allies within it to blink to a target location.
Kha’Zix is a vicious Void predator who has infiltrated Valoran to devour the most promising creatures. With each kill, he absorbs the strength of his prey, allowing him to evolve into a more powerful being. This Voidreaver has an advantage when it comes to choosing where and when to fight, having lots of freedom to pick his battles.
Jinx is the manic and impulsive criminal from Zaun who lives to wreak havoc. Using her pair of guns, Pow-Pow and Fishbones, Jinx can light up the battlefield by chaining her abilities and keep her opponents on tilt and off-guard. She can also shock her enemies with Zap! and maintain control of the lane by using her Flame Chompers. With the perfect skill set to dominate the lane and harass enemies, Jinx is no doubt one of the marksmen you definitely want to master.
Wukong is the known Monkey King from Vastaya, who practices his art of Wuju with the help from Master Yi. He is a decent tank due to his Stone Skin passive and has a skill known as Decoy to dodge attacks from his enemies. Decoy also works well together with Nimbus Strike to attack an enemy and get out before they can retaliate. He can also be a very effective AoE assassin that deals high damage with his skills, especially Cyclone.
