Hello!

Trying to really learn mid lane champs so that I can start to "main" them in ranked. I know the "powerhouses" are like Cassio, Ryze, Karthus (and galio, but i really suck as galio, i just feel like i dont do much damage w him). But anyway, i'm the type like so many others that likes to have a "main, go to" champ. I also would like my fave AP to be someone who is underplayed and underrated. Been trying to play xerath, however, I haven't fallen in total love yet with him.

So basically, I was looking for mid champs that you think are really underrated and can be deadly in the right hands. Thanks! If you have any questions lemme know!

Tanky AP is Gragas. Underrated and underplayed but a beast when fed.

Tanky AP gragas is pretty beasty, but he gets SUPER scary when he is on a team with a Janna as a support. And Galio isnt ment to do damage, he is ment to tank and throw out a teamwide CC so the rest of your team can eat them, and also prevent the enemy ap carry from being useful at all by shutting them down. As far as underrated champs, Swain is a freaking MONSTER when used correctly, hits R in a teamfight then activates Zhonya's Hourglass and LOL's at everyone. Ziggs is challenging to run and NOT run out of mana with, but if you can work past his mana hungry early game he is a real beast mid game, especially if you can get the travel time of his ult down. Can't tell you how many times i've picked up a kill by tossing an ult blind towards an area where i knew a badly hurt champ was. Xerath is a good step in the right direction, but im generally against champs that require combo's just to stun someone, especially for newer players. Veigar isnt played too often cause he is squishy as hell, but his AOE Stun is crazy powerful, its stun life is long, and the CD is relatively short. Not to mention that if ANYONE has ANY ap at all they will be afraid of you. Great pick if top picks an AP character along with the Mid. Just absolutely ***** damage all over people. Ive actually went into a 1v3 w Veigar and won in custom rofl. Hmmmmm.... Not sure iv Vladimir mid is "underrated", but he is a true horror. Fizz mid is hilarious, nobody will ever hit you with anything if you can time his playful/trickster down right. Mordekaiser is very situational but good against the right team comp. AP Sion is just.... godawful if done correctly. I think that about covers it. If you have any further questions on any champ specifics, please let me know, Either on this forum or in a PM.

Hope this Helps XD

I just saw 2 crazy mids: AP Janna and AP Soraka both raping an Ezreal.

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

Yeah ap Soraka is a pretty situational pick but she does work. Does fine against Anivia and other characters that have relatively short range (i.e. you will get raped by Ziggs) Janna is kinda iffy, you have to be great at landing skillshots, and DELAYED skillshots at that.

soraka does work! she snowballs most midlanes easily and can carry games even at high lvl (check out high elo soloQ on NA servers)
apart from soraka/lulu/janna (really strong ap champs) there are several others:
my main mid:katarina(super underrated if you have the overview to wait for all the important cc to be blown)
and i love to play gp10 karma mid.

others are: tf, aptristana, veigar (those are viable but underplayed) and several more

just pick up whatever you enjoy playing. Doesnt matter if its considered a troll pick if you can pull it off!

Chu8 got to rank1 NA playing ap mao. Scarra plays a ton of katarina carries alot of his games with her.

Oh wow, nobody has mentioned Xerath? I'm not sure about ranked but in Normal, Xeraths is as rare as a blue moon.

He's also very strong if played right.

+Rep me if you found anything helpful from me

Thanks to jhoijhoi for the beautiful signaures

Xerath and Malzahar are very underplayed. Malza is my main, and i can tell you that when played properly, he is a BEAST. The problem with him is that he is very tricky in teamfights due to his ultimate, Nether Grasp.

Many thanks to MissMaw, LaCorpse, Xiron, Arcana3 and Joxuu for making me sigs!

Lulu and Soraka... So fun.

Lulu is the opposite of underrated...she is blatantly OP and pretty much everyone in mid to high elo knows it by now (or should if they ever do any research on the game).
