Patch 2.4C was tiny, so the meta definitely remains practically unchanged since the last update. But regardless, for players wanting some guidance for their champion pool, here is a Patch 2.4c tier list of all the champions in Wild Rift. This list assumes that players understand how to fully utilize the mentioned champions. Do NOT expect to pick up the top tier picks off the bat, and become overpowered. Only by learning and practicing the top tier picks in this list can players truly maximize the broken nature of the champion.

SS: Akali, Camille
S: Fiora, Irelia, Renekton, Riven,
A: Dr. Mundo, Garen, Gragas, Jax, Pantheon, Teemo, Wukong
B: Darius, Kennen, Graves, Malphite, Nasus, Olaf, Tryndamere
The baron lane as of patch 2.4C is populated with damage dealers, rather than tanks. One of the most notable picks is Akali, sitting at the top of this specific tier list. When wielded by amateurs, she is pretty terrible. But when highly skilled players utilize the pick, the burst damage in her kit is extremely abusable. She creates unplayable circumstances for squishy carries on the enemy team, 100 to 0ing them with little outplay potential.
Though an excellent pup stomper, Darius is only a B tier at the highest levels of play. Avoid long trades with him, especially at level one, and dodge his hook. As long as players can successfully perform these tasks, the axe wielding Noxian is really not so menacing.
SS: Camille, Kha’Zix, Lee Sin
S: Irelia, Nunu, Pantheon, Rengar, Vi, Xin Zhao
A: Amumu, Evelynn, Fizz, Graves, Olaf, Rammus, Wukong
B: Jarvan IV, Shyvana, Master Yi
Lee Sin is an easy SS tier in the jungle. Similar to Akali, he requires fantastic skill to utilize the pick to its fullest. But when wielded by knowledgeable players, the mobility and utility Lee Sin provides during key moments of the game make him overpowered. Do not expect to pick him up for the first time, and be all powerful. The pick is mechanically very intensive, making him difficult for amateurs but incredibly rewarding for the best of the best.
Irelia may come as a surprise to many players. In the South Korean server, she is a highly contested jungle pick. The meta in Wild Rift for jungle definitely does not prioritize the “typical” jungle clears. High damage bruiser carries function wonderfully as gank machines, since they have crowd control, mobility, and kill potential. This makes picks like Camille and Irelia top tier junglers in patch 2.4C.
SS: Brand, Twisted Fate, Katarina
S: Ahri, Akshan, Irelia, Zed, Ziggs
A: Akali, Diana, Gragas, Lucian, Orianna,
B: Corki, Fizz, Galio, Lux, Renekton,
C: Annie, Aurelion Sol, Seraphine
The newest addition to Wild Rift, Brand, made it to the top of the tier list in patch 2.4C. His burst and burn damage cannot be taken lightly, easily taking over team fights with the area of effect on his abilities. Especially with a strong front line to protect him from engages, the Brand pick is easily one of the strongest mid lane champions in Wild Rift.
As of patch 2.4C, Aurelion Sol is one of the lowest in the tier list. There are so many champions that are more effective at impacting side lanes, which is Aurelion Sol’s primary objective during the early to mid stages of the game. Twisted Fate teleports instantaneously, and Ziggs can throw his ultimate from halfway across the map. The roaming capabilities on Sol’s third ability has been dimished because of such. But that does not mean players cannot impact the game utilizing the galaxy dragon. Despite his innate weakness, those who have a very deep understanding of the pick should still be able to perform their essential functions. Just be careful when insta locking in the pick, since there are tons of counters to the squishy castor.
SS: Kai’Sa, Varus,
S: Corki, Ezreal, Vayne, Xayah
A: Draven, Jinx, Lucian, Tristana,
B: Miss Fortune, Akshan
C: Ashe, Jhin
Varus is incredibly powerful in the current patch. Many underestimate the pick, but the amount of damage from his key abilities is absolutely absurd. Build primarily lethality for very effective results. Poke enemies down from ridiculously long range, and lock them down with Varus’s very useful ultimate ability.
It is rather unfortunate that one of Riot’s coolest champions is in a terrible position for Wild Rift. Jhin is simply outclassed by many of his fellow marksmen. With no escape and lacking consistent damage output, the pick carries quite a risk with it. Falling off practically guarantees defeat for the four shot madman. Players who have mastered the pick may still find success, but Jhin is simply too vulernable to top tier picks such as Irelia and Akali.
SS: Lulu, Nami, Rakan, Senna
S: Brand, Braum, Galio, Gragas, Janna, Leona
A: Alistar, Seraphine, Sona, Thresh
B: Lux, Soraka
Lulu is, hands down, the best utility support in the game. Her abilities are overpowering during key moments, very much shifting the tides of the game. If Lulu players trust in their damage carries, well timed buffs and barriers prevent the enemy team from performing their essential roles, while maximizing the damage output of her allies. For those looking for a high reward enchanter support, pick up Lulu.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Blitzcrank is without a doubt the worst support in the game. Since he is incredibly reliant on the lack of skill on the enemy team, those who understand his hook range can easily counter the pick. If he misses his grab, Blitzcrank essential turns into a glorified super minion. Unless Blitzcrank manages to land every high-risk, cheese hook, the pick is pretty useless.
This tier list was created with high levels of play in mind. In essence, the lists assumes players understand exactly how to utilize the mentioned picks, while have the game knowledge to counter the weaker champions. The creator of the tier list used knowledge from Challenger level games in Korea, and since player skills differ per region, different champions may actually play better in different regions.
