One of the biggest decisions a player can make when entering champion select in League of Legends is which champion to pick. For new players, looking at all 155 champions can be daunting, especially with not knowing which champions are the most “noob-friendly.” As a result, our latest tier list will be breaking down every single champion in League of Legends grouping them by difficulty. Rather than doing a tier list that is straight easy/medium/hard, we’re going to break champions into several classifications based on a number of factors. Champions will be grouped by 1) mechanical difficulty of executing their kit 2) how forgiving they can be even if you are not doing well in a game 3) how long it takes the typical player to master the champion and 4) how unique their playstyle is within League of Legends. As a result, this tier list will run a difficulty range from “Easy” to “Severe.” We will also include a brief description of how we’re grouping the champions in each tier.

severely hard champions

These are the hardest champions to master in League of Legends.



These champions require a lot of skill to play to it's fullest potential.



These champions need a good amount of skill to play.



These champions are fairly easy to play however do have some skill needed to play them.



These are the easiest champions to play in League. I recommend you start off with these picks if you're new to the game or just want a simple and easy champion to play.



Yuumi is not a champion

Yasuo and Irelia should drop a tier down. Also, Aphelios shouldn't be above Draven, you can do some research and find that most Aphelios mains agree that Draven is more difficult. All you need to do is read his lit.

Now that I rewatch this list I fully agree on everything that appears on this list.
IIGoTII (3) | September 28, 2021 2:20am
Objection!! Yuumi is a legally certified champ , she needs brains and skills to fully master her lol .
tha soup (3) | September 22, 2021 12:52pm
Bardo Tier 2 whoa
woolly26 (1) | September 18, 2021 2:19pm
Irelia same difficulty as yasuo , this list aint accurate .
Tremic (7) | September 19, 2021 1:04am
Just because Irelia is busted right now doesn't mean she's a lot easier to play than she used to be.
Metallichydra (11) | September 21, 2021 12:14am
Depends on whether or not this list is based on: "skill floor", "skill cap" or something else. If it's floor, I would say that woolly26 is right, since being overpowered / busted = lower skill floor (easier to play). If it's skill cap, then you are right, since being busted has no influence on that.
If this list is based on something else, then I have no clue.
I think it's based on something else, since thresh is in the highest tier along with yuumi being in the lowest.
woolly26 (1) | September 19, 2021 2:57am
Well if you have stacks on Irelia and stun your opponent is gg ez.

Hey @ Tremic! Make sure to check your private messages. Keep up the great tier lists coming! 😊

Isn't there already a champion difficulty rating made by Riot in game?
Tremic (7) | September 17, 2021 12:39am
It's not very accurate though, they gave Talon the same rating as Riven
ak521 (22) | September 18, 2021 2:44pm
Ok, I just think that difficulty's really hard to measure due to mastery cap.

Contrary to everyone saying this tier list is inaccurate, you can't actually say a lot about its accuracy.

I would definetly move Gragas up a few tiers, he has some of the hardest combos in the game and im judging this is based off of skill cap and not skill floor since zed leblanc and orianna are very high.
Metallichydra (11) | September 6, 2021 3:57am
This list is in no way based on skill cap as long as Yuumi is below garen. Yes, Yuumi may be easy, but her skill cap is definitively above that of garen.
SovietBoi | September 8, 2021 8:00am
At least garen needs to know how to not get kited and when to go in since he doesnt have fancy tools that allow him to escape/outplay.

Also, if this list wasnt based on skillcap then why are the champs i listed (zed lb ori) so high up when their skill floors are low?

overall this is really good. it seems at least 90% accurate imo. the only changes I could this of would be maybe moving zilean up, since his kit is pretty hard to master against other supports. that could just be me though.
maxwell redbaron | August 29, 2021 11:01pm
this is insane, askshan literally has a point and click Lucian ult. and stealth to allow him to escape.
how is his ult or kit harder than a melee diving champion like jarvan
Metallichydra (11) | September 6, 2021 3:55am
Clearly having a free escape means it's really hard to play that champion.
Tremic (7) | August 30, 2021 1:04am
Lmao you clearly know nothing about akshan and marksmans in general
maxwell redbaron | August 30, 2021 7:40am
*presses R for lucian+caitlyin ult*
"WOW SUCH OUTPLAY, I am actually mechanically gifted yknow"

not to mention he gets MS on auto and has a massive dash and invisibility. he is idiot proof

Is kindred that HARD ?
And why yorick is easy ?
Metallichydra (11) | August 20, 2021 9:39am
This tier list seem to favor mechanical difficulty. Most of Yorick's gameplay is mechanically simple, even if split pushing is hard (macro). Just look at the highest tier: all of them are very difficult in terms of mechanics
IIGoTII (3) | August 21, 2021 2:28pm
OH i see , thank you .
Metallichydra (11) | August 18, 2021 7:58am
Singed is only average? I mean, I know he is mechanically easy, but his playstyle seem to be so unique that it would at least bring him to the hard tier.
