Hey all. So I've been in Gold III for quite a while and I've had a good 20-30 games in here now. I main top lane, mostly Jax, Singed, Shen and Zed. I play 99% of my games as Jax as he's by far my best but recently I've just gotten bored with him and my performance has suffered because of it.

Cutting to the chase, does anyone have any tips for me? I think a big reason I haven't moved onto Gold II now after 2 promotion series is because I'm just not taking it serious enough. Not warding when I need to, not playing careful, reckless dives, etc. I've also begun playing some Graves seeing as most ADCs have been blowing and I figured a large majority of people can top lane better than ADC.

I play almost exclusively resourceless champions top lane, preferably ones with some form of sustain, and ideally a good late game :]

@Dufftime I used to love playing me some Olaf, one of my favorite top laners (was second to my Jax) but the nerfs hit him hard. Right now I play a ton of Jax, Elise and Zed although I need to become a better Jayce as well.


@Asian Psh, I hate him. That terrible lategame hits so hard.

to be honest, I had a ward problem myself, Often times I'll buy one-two wards every back from now on, it makes sure I don't lose a lane ward and can ward objectives if need be.

Another thing I like to do, is if I'm ahead, but my teams not buying wards, I'll buy 2-3 pinks and ward the big things like baron and dragon, and then maybe a few sights for the enemy jungle, wards can win games, and if I'm nearly full build, wards over that long sword PROBABLY will do more for us.

Shyvana top lane is your answer
Gave you a good laugh or helped? rep+ so i can know ;)

Thanks to TinyStar, Jhoi, Xiaowi, Virus, Bard and Arcana(eww)...for my signatures!

Elohell is like Irelia's stun: if your real level is equal or lower than the level you are in, you're STUNNED there forever. If your actual level is higher than the level you are in, you're just SLOWED in your way up.

I've recently started playing some really good Zac in the toplane. His sustain + harass is pretty decent and his lategame is great because you win abouut every single teamfight with your ultimate.


I'm streets ahead. If you don't get it you're streets behind.

Jarvan IV might work, he can do almost anything your team needs.

This is only when playing Jax?

Just focus on other champs for now then. Shen, Singed, Elise, Zed, Jayce are all fine, as are Irelia, Renekton, Zac, Rumble etc.

As for one somewhat unconventional choice I'd advise anyone to try: Trundle.

Don't play Lee Sin. As much as it hurts me to say it, he's just too weak now.

if youre going to play trundle top make sure you get spirit visage as fast as you can to abuse the passive for even more sustain in lane
