Hey guys,

When I play games, i'm the type that MUST have my real, true love in a character. And I don't really get it by picknig up every champ, trying out, and the one that feels easiest/most natural, i pick. Instead, I like to find characters that have a really high skillcap, alot of different uses, and are very rewarding when you master.

Hence, that's what I'm looking for in an LoL champ. 1) A high skillcap, 2) High Utility, 3) REALLY deadly when mastered. I know it will take a long time for a newer player, but I'm just curious on your thoughts on this. I was thinking of Viktor, seems very customizable (although the upgrades to his hex core seem underwhelming), and seems like a high skill cap, but is he really great when you put it all together? Thanks!

Any champs you suggest are appreciated!

Hmm... Viktor has one skill that takes some mastering, and that is his laser. He is a viable mid, but not crazy hard to master. Very high skillcap characters come in all shape and sizes.One of the very hardest to learn is Kassadin. I think this guy is exactly what you are looking for. He as a high damage ranged spell that silences, a short range cone that just ***** damage on people, a passive/active that boosts his basic attacks and gives him mana back per swing, and his ult is a flash every 4 seconds (or less w some cdr) that also deals damage in an area around it, with damage and mana cost increasing for every time u use it within i think its 6 seconds. High burst damage, high utility, unsurpassable escape ability. Very squishy. Other than kass, some of the hardest ones to truly "master" are Shaco (but idk if i would bother, he is pretty much perma banned in draft and ranked), Malzahar, Rumble, Akali, Fizz, Kennen, Oriana, Twitch, Xerath, Yorick, Lee Sin. Master these champs and you pretty much have all the hardest ones figured out.

Hope this helps!

Kassadin, really hard to play it took me close to 12 games to come close to proficiency with him, bots do not prepare you for the actual people when playing kass. But once you master him you might as well consider mid your lane because very few players will be able to hold up to you.( Exception is Cassiopeia, Lux, Malzahar) Even those examples die out post 6(except Malzahar) watch out for him even if he gets lucky he deals insane damage+ flash w/ supress makes jungle ganks impossible to escape from). Another champ really worth playing and feels like a game changer to me is Trundle though he is considerably easier to master than Kassadin his positioning must be top quality all game. As a last example I want to point out Corki and Maoki with proper positioning they destroy teams. Corki's E in particular wrecks enemy defenses, while Maoki's R + Snare make him incredibly disruptive and they are both fairly hard to master.

ALL the champs are extremdly dangerous when mastered, you just have to find the rol you wanna cover in game, but remember this: You wont play the champion you want.

I like to play a Tanky DPS Gangplank, or an AD Kennen, so it's really hard answer your question because here in MOBAfire we have ALOT of good players that play different roles and are very nice with dem.

So someone can say you: "Hey man buy Graves, when he is fed is a totally monster" or "Hey man Cassiopia is OP buy her". and you will get confused :D

Yes, my new project start it. Feel free to PM me and give me suggestions to be the best blog on MOBAfire!

Anivia is a very good high skillcap/high reward champion. She's extremly hard to play while being really powerful.

Same for Karthus. Most people who never played Karthus thinks '' LOL KARTHUS SO EASY JUST PRESS R TO WIN ****ING NOOB'' but it's far from the reality. He is REALLY REALLY hard to play. Like, really hard.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

Especially when people are great at dodging his Q, just like dodging Cass skills. The biggest reason I don't find either of them a huge threat. Both ults can be extremely deadly though.

Play Karma, get good with her. Most people think she sucks, but she has great utility. Learn to play her well and make people cry at her great burst + support.

Lee sin, because of tons of skills/effects to use.
Orianna, because of the ball positioning in fights.

Both can do a lot, but you can't use spells without reflexion.

I never really found Karthus hard to play imo. His Q is fairly easy to land especially since it is so spammable and his farm potential is great so yeah never really felt he was hard. Anivia isn't all that hard and has super great reward mana management is key on her though if you can't do that don't play Anivia. Last time is said high skill level champs that destroy late game i forgot to add Malzahar since he is an absolute beast at farming and straight up damage output.

Malzahar is really easy to use o_o

So is Lee Sin imo.

Orianna is probably the toughest I've tried, its practically using two champions with one mouse, very difficult and ball positioning determines outcomes of fights.
Also, she's one of the only champions who need your team mates to position themselves properly to bring out her full potential.

Malzahar needs to have pretty good positioning an placement along with a good ability to farm and conserve mana. Not many Malzahar's can do that. Orianna seemed pretty natural to me for some reason my friend said she was hard but i didn't really feel that all i did was send the ball in the middle and clump enemies for skill shot rampage.
