ADC Tier List: All Champions Ranked

Summoners! the time is here to asses all the ADC champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift in this ADC tier list. If you were not already aware, Wild Rift is the android/ios adaptation of the popular MOBA League of Legends. Riot Games, the developers of the League of Legends franchise, did not hold anything back while making it. There are slight differences between the two games, but the concept is the exact same.

The article will discuss all of the ADC or “Duo” champions in the Wild Rift. The concept of ADC is the same in Wild Rift as in Summoner’s Rift. Their job is to deal much damage in bursts or relatively short time and carry their team when needed. Most ADCs don’t have a lot of defense and are usually squishy. However, they can be ruthless and relentless killing machines when played with synergy.


     Key Points

  • League of Legends Wild Rift is the mobile adaptation of the popular PC MOBA game League of Legends.
  • The ADC role is responsible for carrying the team in the late game by doing a lot of damage in a short amount of time.

S Tier

ADC Tier List Best Champions
S Tier.

Like similar aticles, we shall start our ADC tier list with the best champions in the S rank. According to the current meta, champions included in this ranking are undoubtedly the best of the best champions in the game. 

Lucian

The first champion in the S ranking is the Purifier, Lucian. On many levels, Lucian is unanimously agreed as the best ADC in the game. His kit is perfect for mobile gameplay, and his scaling is unmatched. He is also quite high on the rankings in the Summoner’s Rift as well. Additionally, Lucian is one of the strongest early-game champions and can quickly destroy the enemy champions farm if played properly.

Lucian follows a pretty standard AD build. Your priority should be leveling up his Piercing light first, then his dash. Of course, invest in ultimate points wherever possible. When it comes to difficulty, Lucian is pretty average. He is not easy, but not too hard, either. After a few matches practicing his combos, you should be able to play him pretty well. However, if you play a little too aggressively, you can accidentally feed the enemy team and lose your early-game relevance. 

Kai’Sa

She is one of the most famous ADC champions in the game, and she is also a part of the popular Riot Games’ fictional music band KDA. Her early game is relatively weak compared to the rest of the S-tier champions but is unmatched in the late game. Furthermore, her difficulty scales directly with the elo you are in. On the base level, she is very easy to play.

Kai’Sa is a very versatile champion that can be built as an AD or an AP champion. Your first ability that should be maxed in any build is your Icathian Rain. Depending on the build you’re going for, your next level-up should be Void Seeker in the case of AP and Supercharge in the case of AD. Kai’Sa also levels up her abilities once you have enough AD, Attack Speed, and AP. All in all, she is one of the best ADC champions in the League of Legends franchise.

Caitlyn

The time is here to discuss the Sherrif of Piltover herself, Caitlyn. Caitlyn is also a very popular ADC champion for many reasons. Firstly, she is one of the League of Legends animation Arcane stars. Secondly, she is one of the most ruthless lane bullies the game has ever seen. Her difficulty is pretty easy, but her win condition lies with you not throwing. Caitlyn has the most range when it comes to attacks. She relies on you playing behind your team and shredding the enemy team.

Caitlyn is strictly an AD champion in Wild Rift. The ability you should always level up first is Piltover Peacemaker, which is her best lane clear ability. Secondly, you should level up her traps, as her 90 Caliber Net is mostly used as a means to dash rather than do actual damage. She does fall off a little in the mid-game phase but destroys enemies at a farther range in the late game.

Xayah

The next champion that we are going to take a look at in this ADC tier list is Xayah, The Rebel. One of the Star Guardians universe stars, Xayah, is also a very popular ADC champion in the Wild Rift. However, her performance in the Summoner’s Rift is pretty bad, but in the Wild Rift, she decimates. She is one of the more difficult champions to play in the entire game simply because all her abilities require precise timing, and her combos are very hard to land.

Like Kai’Sa, Xayah can either go for an AP build or an AD one. However, her best performance is with the AD build simply because of how ruthless it can be. When leveling up abilities, your priority is her Blade Caller, followed by her Deadly Plumage. Most of her attack speed comes from her Deadly Plumage ability, so your focus should be on building AD as much as you can. 

Ezreal

Finally, the last champion we will discuss in the S tier is Ezreal. He is one of the harder champions to play because his combos are pretty tricky to land. Furthermore, his early game is very bad and requires you to play slowly and farm.

Ezreal does have an AD build but does not build the meta AD items. His most important item is the Muramana and should be rushed immediately. Additionally, his focus is not only on AD but on ability haste as well, as he is extremely ability dependent. Furthermore, when playing Ezreal, you should always level up his Mystic Shot, followed by his Arcane Shift, while investing in ult points whenever possible.

A Tier

Great ADC Tier List Champions
A Tier.

With Ezreal, we end the S Tier and move toward the next rank in our article. In the A tier, we will discuss characters that are still great, but perhaps not the absolute best.

Vayne

The first character we will discuss in the A tier is the Night Hunter, Vayne. Vayne is the best anti-tank ADC champion in both Wild Rift and Summoner’s Rift. She is sometimes used as a duo and a top lane or baron champion. Her early game is extremely weak because of her restricted range. However, as soon as she has her core items, she starts to shred champions.

Vayne is heavily dependant on AD in Wild Rift. Because of her Silver Bolts, she does True Damage every third auto attack, which deals damage in terms of health percentage. Like Ezreal, she doesn’t follow the conventional AD items and opts for items with more Magic Resist or Attack Speed. Regarding abilities, your priority should be leveling up Silver Bolts, followed by Tumble. 

Jinx

At last, the time is here to discuss Zaun’s Chaotic Killing machine, Jinx. Jinx is perhaps the most popular League of legends champion, especially after Arcane. She is an antagonist that holds nothing back when releasing her psychotic energy using her weapons, Fishbones, Zapper, and Pow Pow. In terms of difficulty, she is quite easy but requires the right playstyle to be a successful ADC champion.

Jinx is also an ADC champion that heavily relies on AD rather than AP. Her passive “Get Excited” gives her attack speed after each kill, making her especially dangerous in team fights. It would be best if you always level her switcheroo first because that will increase your auto attack damage. After that, your focus will be the Zap Cannon. Being a Jinx main, I have a bit of friendly advice for you, try to stay aware of your map and land snipe kills using your Super Mega Death Rocket against low-health champions. 

Samira

Up next on the chopping block is Samira, The Desert Rose. When it comes to Samira, you can only have one of two opinions. You either hate Samira as much as Mid laners hate Heimerdinger, or you can love Samira as much as Shaco mains love his AP build. However, when it comes to Samira herself, she is a pretty hard champion to play effectively because of her playstyle mechanic. This difficulty comes at a fair price because she is one of the strongest burst ADC champions.

Like all the ADC champions, Samira’s meta build also consists of AD items. However, her main priority is Vamp instead of attack speed and ability haste. Vamp allows champions to heal themselves depending on the damage they deal. Samira’s ability priority is with her Flair, followed by Wild Rush. Her ultimate has a low cooldown but requires a combat rating of S for you to be able to use it, hence her difficulty.

Draven

Here is a name most ADCs dread to hear because of how brutal Draven’s Reputation is. The Glorious Executioner Draven is one of the hardest ADC champions to master because of his main auto-attack ability. Furthermore, Draven is the strongest early-game champion in the game because of his insane base damage. However, Draven players need to use his early game because he falls off as the game progresses.

Draven has a pretty average AD build that can be tweaked depending on who you are against. His abilities are pretty simple to learn yet hard to execute combos with. Your main focus should be on leveling up his Spinning Axe and making sure that you have both axes spinning at all times. Secondly, you should level up Blood Rush while investing in ult points whenever possible. If you have a hyper-aggressive playstyle, Draven is definitely someone you should try out.

Varus

Up next on the ADC tier list Wild Rift is Varus, The Arrow of Retribution. Like Vayne, Varus is a champion that is not that relevant until you build some of his main core items. His difficulty is quite moderate, but his playstyle is very combo based. He mainly relies on poke and waiting for enemies to overextend toward their death.

Varus, an ADC, has an AD build, but he does not use many conventional items. Like Ezreal, his main item you should always rush is Muramana. When it comes to abilities, your priority is leveling up his Piercing Arrow, followed by his Blighted Quiver. In addition to that, his Runes are AP based rather than AD so keep that in mind when picking your playstyle.

Tristana

The second last champion of the S tier is The Megling Guuner, Tristana. Tristan is my Perma ban champion whenever I play League of Legends because she is brutal. Tristana shreds low-defense champions in quick bursts and can be one of the deadliest champions in team fights. It is especially frightening, considering that Tristana is a very easy champion to play. She does not do well against tanks, so Tristana is in the A tier rather than the S Rank.

Tristana is a heavy AD champion that thrives on Lethality. When playing Tristana, you should build as much Lethality as possible, along with some attack speed. Her movement is dependent on her abilities, so you need to be able to do a lot of damage in a short amount of time and leave safely. The ability you should level up first is Explosive Charge, followed by Rapid Fire. All in all, it is in your best interest to either ban her or play her.

Corki

Corki is both a great Duo as well as a great Mid champion. His difficulty is quite moderate but justified. The Daring Bombardier is tanky compared to some other ADC champions. However, he can still quickly die because of how high his ability cooldown is.

Corki does not follow a conventional ADC build. While focusing on AD, attack speed with Corki is just as important. In addition, most meta build buff up his crit hit chance along with his ability haste. Corki is definitely annoying to deal with if left alone to farm. Moving on, the ability you need to level first is Phosphorus Bomb. The rest ability level up depends on how you’re playing as and building towards.

B Tier

Good ADC TIer List Champions
B Tier.

Let us continue our rankings with the next tier. In the B rank, we will discuss some of the more decent champions currently in the game. These champs are definitely good, just not in every situation. 

Ashe

Ashe is one of the most versatile champions in the game, however, she is also one of the most squishy characters in the game. She relies heavily on her duo/support in the lane to farm well. Her difficulty is quite easy. She bodes better as a support than as a duo simply because of how great her utility is for other team members. 

Ashe has a mana and AD build to support herself in the lane. Her priority skill is Volley, followed by Ranger’s Focus. Ashe can be an extremely devastating champion but is rarely ever known to do so. Her pick rate is more as a support as a duo in Wild Rift and the Summoner’s Rift. All in all, she is a decent ADC but requires a lot of help to farm efficiently in the early game.

Jhin

Next up in the B tier of this ADC tier list is Jhin, the Virtuoso. He can destroy squishy ADCs by easily exploiting their mistakes. He is also a burst ADC, allowing him to hold his own in close combat. However, if the enemy champ is a tank, Jhin is nearly useless because of his restricted auto attacks. 

Jhin is moderately difficult to play, but if you pair him with support like Lux or Morgana, he will carry you throughout the game. His ability priority is Dancing Grenade, responsible for starting most of his combos. Additionally, his most effective combo is pairing auto attacks with his dancing grenade, landing a Deadly Flourish to root enemy champs, and then using your ultimate on them.

Ziggs

Next up in the B Tier rankings is the bombastic Yordle, Ziggs. He is not as good an ADC as he is on mid, but he is still a decent one. Furthermore, Ziggs has crowd combat abilities that help him control team fights. Additionally, he can shred opponents using his other abilities in short bursts as long as they aren’t tanks. The problem with Ziggs is that he can easily be countered in the early game, which is why he is not in the higher tiers.

As an ADC, Ziggs follows an AP build as he is a mage champion. His most important core items are Luden’s Echo and Rabadon’s Deathcap, which are very deadly magic items. However, when it comes to abilities, you only need to focus on his Bouncing Bomb and Explosive Minefield in that priority order. Bouncing Bomb is his main weapon for dealing damage, while Explosive Minefield is a great wave clear ability.

Orianna

Continuing the list of our B-tier champions, the next one on the chopping block is the Lady of Clockwork, Orianna. Orianna is one of the least-used ADC champions because she is difficult to play in most situations. Her power phase is in the late game but getting there is not an easy task, even with support. Her abilities make a lot of sense for an ADC or mid-champion, but given how slow they are, they don’t fit the tempo of bot lane all that well.

Similar to Ziggs, Orianna also uses an AP build. Her build is very similar to Ziggs, having Luden’s Echo and Rabadon’s Deathcap as her core items. Her first ability that you should always level up is the Command Attack. Secondly, you should level up Command Dissonance. All in all, she is a decent champion but fails to fit in with some of the other ADCs.

Lux

The second last character that we will discuss is Lux. Lux is perhaps the most versatile champion in the game because she can be played as an ADC, a Support, or even as a Mid champion. Lux is also one of the easiest champions in the game. In fact, you start off learning the game with Lux. She is in the B tier of ADCs because her usability as Mid or as Support champions is far greater than her role as an ADC.

Lux also follows a strictly AP build because all her abilities deal magic damage. In addition to that, Lux has a very diverse build set with a number of different core items depending on how you like playing. Finally, you should level up her Lucent Singularity when it comes to her abilities. After that ability, your priority should be leveling up her Light Binding. 

Miss Fortune

Miss Fortune is a very lethal champion on Summoner’s Rift but is not as dangerous in the Wild Rift. Because of the meta in Wild Rift, Miss Fortune is, at best, a B-tier champion despite being a very easy champion to learn. But if the enemy ADC gives Miss Fortune a fortunate start, she can easily carry the bot and mid-lane.

Miss Fortune can be built both as an AD as well as an AP champion. However, AP Miss Fortune is very rarely useful and requires god-like skill levels to pull it off. Her ability level-up order is Double Up, Strut and then Make it Rain. Miss Fortune does have a perk, which is that she has synergy with almost every support champion, which opens up her playstyle a lot. 

C Tier

Decent ADC Champions
C Tier.

Continuing our ADC Tier list wild rift, the next ranking we will look at is the C Tier. Here we will discuss some of the average champions in the game. 

Seraphine

First on the list of C-tier ADC champions is Seraphine, the Starry-Eyed Songtress. Seraphine is one of the best supports in higher elo, but as an ADC, she severely underperforms. It is almost never a good idea to play Seraphine as an ADC unless you have a specific playstyle and combo in mind. Her difficulty is pretty moderate, so it is possible; however, it is highly unadvised.

Her build strongly depends on Magic Damage which is why she goes for AP items. Her abilities offer more usability has support rather than an ADC, so countering her is pretty easy as an ADC. When it comes to abilities, you should always go for leveling up High Note first and then Beat Drop. All in all, she is a great champion, but there are better options when it comes to the ADC role.

Morgana

If you have played Wild Rift, then chances are you are already familiar with Morgana, The Fallen. Contrary to Summoner’s Rift, Morgana’s best role in the Wild Rift is actually the Jungler role rather than the support role. Furthermore, because her pick rate is so high, she is hard to avoid. However, you rarely see a Morgana ADC because she is better at some of her other roles.

Morgana is a mage, so all her builds focus on AP items. Considering the Morgana is a moderately difficult champion to play, your focus should be on Ability Haste, so you get the most chances to land a skill shot. Finally, her ability level-up priority is subjective. You can upgrade any ability depending on how you’re trying to play, but the most common trend is leveling up Tormented Sadow the first. 

Karma

Karma is one of the absolute best supports for characters like Jinx or Caitlyn. However, as an ADC, she struggles to stay relevant most of the game. Her very high skill gap does not help her case either because you need to be very familiar with Karma to play her properly. 

Karma is also a mage ADC which means that her builds are focused on AP. She shares the same core items as most of the Mage ADCs but lacks the firepower that they offer. Moving on to the ability level up, you should always level up Inner Flame first. After that, you can opt for Inspire or Focused Resolve, depending on your playstyle. 

D Tier

Average ADC Champions
D Tier.

In the current tier, we will discuss the champions that struggle a lot in the ADC role. They are way less than average when it comes to their performance in the ADC role. 

Akshan

Akhsan is one of the deadliest mid-laners in League of Legends but is horrible at playing the ADC role in Wild Rift. He does have a unique kit that is heavily based on mobility. Considering how limited the space is on the bot lane, it makes sense why not many people make use of him in that role.

Moving on to his build, he is a pretty average AD build champion. His difficulty is quite high because of his combos but he is nothing too hard to learn. He uses conventional AD items like Infinity Edge and Stormrazor. When it comes to his ability level-up order, your priority should be leaving up Avengerang first. After that is Heroic Swing, investing in ultimate points whenever possible.

Brand

If you are new at League or a seasoned veteran, Brand is a name that is known by all. He singlehandedly one of the most bothersome support champions in the game, however, that level of skill does not translate into the ADC role. Brand is a late-game champion, but because he struggles so much in the early game, he is better as a support rather than an ADC champion. 

Brand is a mage champion, so his builds are strictly AP based. He uses some non-conventional AP items like Prophet’s Pendant, but conventional items also bode well for him. He is extremely easy to play when talking about difficulty. Furthermore, his ability level up is heavily based on how you are playing. Generally, priority is given to Pillar of Flame, followed by Sear.

Veigar

The third and final champion of the D tier in this ADC tier list Wild Rift is Veigar. Much like Akshan, his role as an ADC is nearly useless because of how horrible his performance is. Bot lane is a significantly fast-paced lane in which slow mages like Veigar struggle to find relevancy.

Moving on to the build, as he is a mage, he has a pretty normal AP build. His core items include Luden’s Echo and Void Staff when playing as an ADC. His difficulty is quite great so keep that in mind when opting to play him as well. Lastly, his ability order is Baleful Strike, followed by Dark Matter. However, the most useful ability he has is Event Horizon which can allow him to destroy champions without taking any damage.

F Tier

ADC Tier List Worst Champions
F Tier.

Finally, the last and final tier of the article is here. In the F Tier, we will only be discussing a single character because Wld Rift has no more ADC champions left. 

Senna

Senna is one of the best Support champions in the game. Her abilities allow her to root, heal and hide champions, making her the perfect ally on the bot lane. However, when it comes to the ADC role, Senna is the worst of the worst because she cannot carry the team with her damage at all.

Senna does not follow an AD or an AP build but a hybrid of both. Like Ezreal, her core item as an ADC is the Manamune which allows her to deal more damage with mana. Furthermore, her difficulty is quite great, so playing her will be no piece of cake. Finally, you only need to level up one ability when using Senna as an ADC, which is her Piercing Darkness.

Verdict

With that, we conclude our ADC tier list. I had a lot of fun writing this particular guide, as Wild Rift is one of my favorite games. Again, the list is quite subjective, so you may not agree with the rankings I made. However, do know that these are based on champion pick rates and win rates, according to public opinion of the title
