The constant changes in League of Legends make the game quite confusing at times. The addition of champions each year makes the oversight of 150 champs almost impossible. Thankfully, Riot introduced the weekly champion rotation, which allows players to test out the champions for free.

Riot Games loans out around 10% of playable champions for free each week. This keeps League of Legends interesting and gives players the opportunity to experiment. Once you hit level 11, you gain access to the free champion rotation. The free champion rotation switches up every single Tuesday, so be prepared to try some new stuff on Summoner's Rift weekly.

There's actually something for everyone this week! A huge choice of mid lane picks, strong junglers, and a few solid support champions. So you are literally spoiled for choice!


Who is the best top laner in this free champion rotation? This time it's Nasus. The big dog from the desert is generally a good pick, but he's especially good for beginners. Thanks to the stacking mechanic from his Q ability, you can become an absolute monster in the mid- to the late-game.

In the jungle this week, Warwick is at your disposal. Similar thing as Nasus. Simple kit, good level power. Despite being a relatively simple champion, it's a lot of fun to gank with him and keep the opponents in fear.

As a mid lane pick we can recommend Aurelion Solto you this week. Since his CGU was released, he's been in the patch notes seemingly every time. Despite that, it's still pretty strong. It gives you brutal damage, strong crowd control, and massive wave clear. He also eats an incredible amount of mana, though...

For you ADC Mains, we would recommend Jinx. Honestly - who, if not Jinx? She is currently destroying everything in the bot lane. If you don't stop her early enough, she will destroy your entire team in 1v5. I guarantee you that.

Finally, let's move on to the support role. In this free champion rotation, you should choose Rakan. My heart says Bard, but my mind says Rakan. He's currently in much better shape. If you want an incredibly mobile Engage support, Xayah's Darling is the best choice for you.

So, that's it, guys. Try out a few of these unique champions from this champion rotation, and maybe you'll find your new main? Who knows. We'll be back next Tuesday to see who you can try in the next free champion rotation!
