I want to buy a new Champion for the top lane.
Currently I always play Garen on the top lane solo.
But eventually it gets boring to play alwas the same champion.
I've looked at the following Champions for the solo top lane:
Mordekaiser; Lee Sin; Darius; Jarvan
For me this are interesting champions.
But befor i dont want to buy a wrong champion, havent got so many influence points.
What you think is a good Choice for solo top?!

Not an expert by any stretch, but if I were choosing just one of those, I think I would go with Lee Sin. He has a little bit of a learning curve - at least more so than Garen - but he is very strong, very fun to play, and very versatile. Plus, once you learn to play him, you can play him top, mid, or jungle. The other nice thing about Lee, in my experience, is even his "bad" matchups aren't terrible. It seems like you can always survive and win lane if you play it right.

I don't really play Mordekaiser at all. Darius is a really good top against some matchups, but he does have some really tough matchups if enemy team counterpicks.

Jarvan is another versatile option that can be played top mid or jungle. He is pretty strong right now, and can build a couple different ways when necessary. Probably just a matter of preference between Lee and Jarvan as far as I'm concerned.

Here's my suggestions if you are low on IP.

1350 champs
Teemo
Tryndamere
Singed
Jax

3150 champs
Nidalee
Shen
Olaf
Pantheon

I would go with Jax or Singed and then try the others out whenever they are free so you know if you like them or not.

Shen, Xin Zhao and Olaf are pretty solid for 3150 top champs. as for 1350 i'd recommend Jax Teemo and Singed. If you really wanna be cheap then Kayle Isn't a bad choice.

Darius and Jarvan for your choices.


Lee is relatively weak at top now.
Morde has always been a weak top laner.

some people have said it, but honestly, I think the only option is Darius

Mordekaiser can top lane but is extremely susceptible to ganks and if he falls behind he's done, more so than most top laners. I really don't like him top.

Lee Sin is incredibly bad top. I used to play a ton of Lee Sin top, but I really only think he's viable in the jungle now.

Darius viable top laner, strong for lower levels of play

Jarvan IV played more of a jungler but can go top. I really think he's strongest in the jungle, like he can go top, but why waste that jungle potential.
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

Psht. Sona is best jungler you brute! /loljk
Yeah Darius is probably the best pick for top out of those choices, the rest are kind of.... well they won't last long in top besides Jarvan or Mord if you're REALLY good.

Thanks to the very talented The_Nameless_Bard
