I've been playing Nasus as my bruiser, Katarina as my ap mid, Sona as my support and Ashe as my ad carry and just realised these are all recommended champions. I'm coming up to ranked games (lvl 25) and im wondering if these champs are viable. Or should i invest in buying a new higher skillcap champion.

my advice would be to not immediately play ranked unless you are ready to drop and climb your way back after a long time.

As for champions, katarina has a crazy high skill cap and is really good, sona is amazing as well, ashe is decent and nasus is really bad because he gets countered by almost anyone.

Probably should look into more champions. Sona and Katarina are pretty viable but Ashe takes a bit of work. Still viable in my oppinion, but not the best ADC. Nasus on the other hand isn't the most viable champion in ranked.

viable champions in my mind are cassiopea, katarina, Sona, Janna, Blitzcrank, Soraka, Irelia, Jax, Vlad, etc.

Don't listen to Riot's classification of champions. Champs tagged as "Jungler" aren't the only junglers. Champions tagged as "Recommended" aren't just for noobs (nor are they always the easiest).

The only really unviable champion you mentioned is Nasus. Master Yi's pretty bad and I don't think Rammus and Garen are too good either, but other than that they're all fine.
Thanks to MissMaw for the sig!

Nasus is just incredibly easy to counterpick and can't farm 99% of the time unless you play him as a jungler.

and people don't like that.

so I wouldn't bother with him.

Nasus can be fine as a counterpick, but even at his best, he will often get **** for "choosing to farm his precious creeps as long as possible instead of EVER leaving top lane."

You were to lane him against another somewhat passive farmer like Cho'Gath or something, you'd do fine, or if the enemy team has a jungler that can't gank for the life of them ( Shyvana) he's good. But those are a lot of variables, and they make Nasus as a whole a poor choice most of the time.

The problem is, if they ever get a successful gank on you and can overpower you, you lose lane right there.

Katarina is getting banned more frequently in rank, pretty strong pick but not good for first pick. Shoulda have a look at the opposite team comp b4 making this move.

Sona is great to have in a team and u see her in tournaments so viable for sure(though i suck at her)

Ashe is good if u can get the infinity edge without feeding the other adc as fat as gragas.

Nasus, I dunno. I've seen jungle nasus with ghost smite and was pretty devastating. However for him to get to his full potential, not too possible in ranked.
