Meet the Best Tank Top Laners in League of Legends Season 12
Tired of losing lane and becoming irrelevant in the late game? Look no further! These high-tier tank champions will soak up damage, provide crowd control, and stay relevant throughout the game.
1. Shen, The Eye of Twilight
Shen is not only a good solo-queue champion, he’s great right now. His ultimate ability, Stand United, allows him to teleport to an ally and provide a shield based on their missing health. His Shadow Dash enables him to dash through enemy champions, setting up kills for his team.
2. Tahm Kench, The River King
Tahm Kench has moved from support to top lane. His healing ability, Tongue Lash, along with his Thick Skin and Abyssal Dive, make him a formidable 1v1 champion. However, he’s facing a high ban rate and potential changes to move him back to support.
3. Nasus, The Curator Of The Sands
Nasus has become even stronger with recent buffs. His Q ability, Siphoning Strike, now procs spell effects, increasing his sustain. He excels against tankier compositions and scales well into the late game.
4. Dr. Mundo, The Madman of Zaun
Dr. Mundo has received numerous buffs and remains a strong champion. He can comfortably lane against champions like Poppy, Tahm Kench, and Shen. He provides a solid frontline and deals significant damage to isolated carries.
5. Poppy, Keeper Of The Hammer
Poppy has seen buffs to her passive ability, Iron Ambassador, reducing its cooldown. She excels in skill-matchups and contributes to team fights with her ability to stun enemies against walls and remove them from the fight with her ultimate.
6. Trundle, The Troll King
Trundle’s Q ability, Chomp, now deals with spell effects, making him a formidable champion. His ultimate, Subjugate, steals armor and magic resistance, making him strong against tankier compositions.
7. Ornn, The Fire Below The Mountain
Ornn remains a strong champion in team compositions due to his passive, Living Forge. He can upgrade Mythic items for his team, providing them with valuable stats. Additionally, his engage abilities make him a valuable asset in team fights.
