Threats to Singed with this build

Show all
Threat Champion Notes
Aatrox Laning verse Aatrox is very simple watch when his third w passive is up (you will hear a sound from him when he has it up)
Garen Garen is a very easy matchup provided you know how to fling lock, a suprising garen build that beats singed is rushing trinity force (sounds stupid but jesus it works)
Illaoi If you take movement speed quints instead of armor she shouldnt be able to land a vessel on you. run away from her if she ults.
Jax Jax is by far the easist matchup for singed dorans rings and ignite will shutdown his early game. The GOOD jax players will start long sword, pots and take ignite, they will be able to kill you over and over again.

Starting items

If you are comfortable in a matchup as singed you can start dark seal and refillable potion, seal is a good singed item since it gives him 100 mana (25hp with passive) and offers singed a solid start to any lane and gives him a snowballish item to start with.
Get corrupting potion on your first base and the item is extremely cost efficient.

Dorans ring is solid of you are verse a matchup you are able to bully around early eg gangplank, jax and nasus.

Corrupting potion: take verse matchups you are going to get poked out of lane or constantly all inned (like darius, quinn, riven and jayce)

Singed facts

Singed is a tanky ap bruiser who specialises in utility for his team and himself.

He is best fit in the top lane.

Singed is one of few champions that has there taunt/laugh interact with their abilities

Singed poison counts as a poison for cassiopeia's E.

Singed has the 5th highest base ad in the game.

If singed has his q toggled on, kha'zix doesn't get his isolation damage, because singeds poison trail is coded as a minion.

If you have any other questions regarding singed please visit The singed mains sub reddit
They have helped me clear up alot of questions and will sure help you aswell.

Singeds passive is Empowered Bulwark: he converts 25% of his maximum mana into health.
This passive isn't that special things to note is it works with cinderhulk and percent hp runes.
I do not recommend building a mana focused build on singed, the only 3 mana items to ever consider are frozen heart, righteous glory and banner of command. it that case you don't buy it for the mana you buy it for the passive/active.

Singeds Q is Poison Trail
Toggle: Singed leaves a trail of posion behind him dealing ap damage over 2 ticks of posion. standing in his posion refreshes the duration.
Here's the stat's:
Magic Damage per Second: 22 / 34 / 46 / 58 / 70 (+ 30% AP)
Magic damage over 2 seconds 44 / 68 / 92 / 140 (+ 60% AP)

Since patch 6.19 this does 8 ticks instead of 2 ticks over 2 seconds
The poison cloud is coded as a minion for purposes of kha'zix isolation damage.

Singed w is Mega Adhesive singed leaves a patch of goo on the ground for 5 seconds
Cooldown: 14 seconds at all ranks
slowing all enemies in it by 35 / 45 / 55 / 65 / 75% this skill has a very high mana cost early and is not worth getting it early on.
This does no damage and is used with Singed's other spells that being Fling

Singeds E is Fling
Cooldown: 10 seconds at all ranks.
Active: Singed flings a target enemy over his shoulder, dealing percent hp and magic damage that is capped against minions and monsters.

Magic Damage: 50 / 65 / 80 / 95 / 110 (+ 6 / 6.5 / 7 / 7.5 / 8% of target's maximum health) Maximum Non-Champion Damage: 350 / 365 / 380 / 395 / 410 (+ 75% AP)
This is what makes singed, displacement spell every 10 seconds, the death of adc mains.

Singeds ultimate is Insanity Potion
Singed drinks a potent brew of chemicals, granting himself ability power, bonus armor, magic resistance, movement speed, health regeneration and mana regeneration for 25 seconds.

Cooldown: 100 seconds at all ranks.

Bonus Stats: 35 / 50 / 80
Regeneration per Second: 7 / 10 / 16
Total Regeneration: 175 / 250 / 400

Singeds ultimate is the best ultimate stat wise compared to every other champion, without these stats singed would be the weakest champion in game.

Why don't you build mana items on singed?

1. Buying tear on your first back gives 0 kill pressure.
2. The mana to hp ratio is garbage unless you build cinderhulk (buying 1 giants belt gives 30 health MORE than having a fully stacked tear and rod of ages)
3. Singed doesn't need mana to be useful.
4. Double Doran rings is alot better than tear since singed has a high base mana regen.
5. Tear/rod of ages are late game items, singeds damage falls off in the late game unless he has liandries, pretty much useless.

Pro's and cons

Pro's and cons

Can kite amazingly.
His taunts tilt the enemy easily.
Easy to play provided you know what to buy.

Creates alot of map pressure via proxy farming.
THE only champion that can reliably proxy farm at level 1.
Can be useful even when he's 0/10.

Hard to master the goo flip.
Hard to farm verse ranged matchups.
Every top lane matchup is considered a hard lane / counter to singed.

Runes and Masteries.

For masteries take 12/0/18 taking courage of the colossus as your keystone, this keystone is THE only keystone that suits singeds kit and also allows him to engage teamfights.

Recovery vs unyielding: take recovery verse hard lanes that will constantly all in you (eg riven) and take unyielding vs matchups were the enemy champion is weak early and won't poke you out/annoy you in lane.

Fresh blood vs feast vs expose weakness: unless you are confident that you won't get harassed in lane take expose weakness else take feast, because of singeds poison trail in a teamfight all of your team will be dealing %3 more damage to the enemy.

vamprism vs natural talent: there is 2 ways you can do this 1 go 1/4 split or 2 or 5/0. this is all personal preference on how you think the lane would go

Bounty hunter vs double edged sword vs battle trance: ALWAYS go battle trance, it is a very strong mastery on all DoT champions.

Runes: The overall best rune page you can use is: armor quints, magic pen reds, hp per level seals and magic resist blues. this page offers singed a early game and allows him to trade with the enemy well early.

For singed items you normally want to rush righteous glory or rylais, either of them are good and allow singed to be useful in teamfights. righteous glory in my opinion is overall a better first item than rylais to allow him to roam and pressure the map. (rylais = for the 1v1, righteous glory = 1v5)

Second item should be either a zz'rot portal or a liandries. zz'rot portal suits singeds kit pretty well it allows him to pressure a lane while he goes and roams (perfect with righteous glory) or singed can go and triple proxy (farm 3 waves of minions at once in the enemies base). liandries is a good item if singed is snowballing it offers alot of damage (which is doubled because of rylais) and offers him flat magic pen which is really good in the early game.

the rest of singed items can vary from tank items to ap items, it depends on how well you and your team are doing. some suggestions are deadmans plate, locket, banner of command, sunfire cape and banshees veil.

Guide Top

Sum spells

Since the ghost buffs earlier in the season ghost is almost a must take unless the enemy have a jarvan then take flash. (or ghost and flash)
Another good sum spell is Ignite, it is used to snowball and bully around your lane opponent, always take ignite if your verse a jax/illaoi top.

Exhaust is acceptable when facing a fiora, olaf or graves in lane.

Singed tips/tricks

Here's the classics from inverted composers video:

Sky auto attack: this trick adds a little bit more to your trade (very useful)
To do saa you bind your attack move click to a button suitable, now right as you fling press that button on top of you. (or you can just right click them in mid air)
This is extremely useful because singed has one of the highest base attack damages in the game.

Blue posion: turn colour blind mode on.

Wall Fling (void toss) : standing next to a little choke point like drag pit walls can let you fling them over the wall. Very good when escaping.

Goo flip: flipping an enemy into your mega adhesive for a root (combine this with sky auto attack and it's good)

Guide Top

Skill Sequence

On Singed you take Poison Trail first this allows for you to shove the wave fast at level 1, then take Fling second, Poison Trail third and Mega Adhesive 4th and so on...
Always max fling afterwards since it does more damage, has more uses and is overall a better skill that w because of the percent hp damage and the increased root duration on the ew combo.

Team Work

Team Fight Singed.
Singed Dives into the backline with righteous glory, ult and ghost flinging any squishy target he can get, you normally want to fling the threat of their team, or zone them hard so they don't touch your team at all.
So while teamfighting pick one target (generally adc's or yasuo's) engage on them and zone them from the fight.
This also ensures you get chained cc rather than your team to get the cc and if they don't cc you, you just dive them.

Guide Top


Singed Poison Trail is his main source of damage in the early game and a great farming tool, it gives alot of wave clear to shove waves fast.

Guide Top

Fling lock

This is the MOST important skill to singed it allows you to deny alot of cc from the enemy.

To do the fling lock you queue up your Fling while someone is about to cc you, even if singed gets cc'd himself he will still use the fling.

You know you are going to fling lock the enemy when you start walking towards the enemy.

With this trick you can stop Warwick ults, Quinn vaults, garen silence, Alistar headbutt, jayce thundering blow and lee sin dragon rage. pretty much any cc that doesn't make the enemy untargetable.

Guide Top

Patch changes that affect singed.

first pre season patch:
Courage of the colossus replaced strength of the ages, cotc is a brilliant keystone for singed as it offers him a increased health pool for 4 seconds.

Locket: locket is now a toplaner item and works amazingly on singed.

Banner of command: now gives 400 mana (100hp from passive)

frozen heart cost decreased by 100 gold.

abyssal now increases singeds fling and poison trail damage by 10%.

protobelt nerfs: we no longer build this item.
