League of Legends Patch 10.11 top lane tier list wasn’t affected much as buffs and nerfs were more prioritized toward the bottom and mid lane.
Top lane has been a role in limbo in Season 10 for solo queue. Either players carry after getting ahead, they stay even to remain relevant as games transpire, or they’re more or less irrelevant come team fighting. The season’s top picks have remained that way for their ability to scale, duel, trade and fight with their team.
Here are the best champions to play in the top lane in League of Legends Patch 10.11.

The S tier champions are usually banned for a reason in solo queue. Darius is a monster in lane and team fighting if ahead ever so slightly. Garen duels well and has execute potential. Shen can split push and be relevant with double teleport. Wukong has been a beast since his rework despite nerfs. If these champions make it through bans, swipe one up.
A tier champions don’t fall too far behind from the cream of the crop. Ornn is arguably the best scaling champion in the game giving teammates upgraded items in later levels. Malphite, especially when paired with Yasuo or Orianna, can wipe teams with the push of a key. Sett and Malphite aren’t slouches either with their high damage output and bulk depending on builds.
The B tier champions, outside of Kled, rely on building a lead in lane and/or not falling too far behind. Fiora becomes near invincible if far ahead and Nasus is all about scaling. Illaoi becomes a thorn in the enemy’s side once ahead as well. These champions aren’t bad picks, but their downsides prevent them from climbing higher in the tier list.
