Champions in LoL Patch 14.6 To Climb Fast And Tilt Your Enemies

League of Legends Patch 14.6 gave these three champions buffs that will make you rage if you don't pick them up.

League of Legends Patch 14.6 heavily skewed towards making some much needed nerfs to champions like Briar and Smolder. Still, there were a number of champions that have received buffs that you, the average League of Legends player, should be made aware of before you break another monitor.

Here are three Champions in League of Legends that you need to start playing in Patch 14.6 to climb the ranked ladder and avoid griefing back to Iron.

Shen Was Broken, Now He’s Even Better in LoL Patch 14.6

This one does not make sense. Yet, here we stand writing about how Shen and his elementary kit are even better than before in LoL Patch 14.6. Instead of showing more love to a champion in need of buffs like Galio, Riot Games pushed those requests to the wayside and gave those buffs to Shen.

Regardless, if you are a low-elo top laner looking to climb games mindlessly, Shen should have been your champion of choice in 14.5. Don’t worry, however, there is even more time to begin your climbing ventures with Shen, especially given his increased shields that make the early game a breeze. The competitive landscape could also change with these buffs as it seems that Shen could possibly be making his way back to the competitive meta as the past few years have seen the tanky ninja chained to solo-queue play.

If you are Gold and below, however, watch one Shen guide, spam your ultimate and enjoy your winstreaks.

Tryndamere Still Botlaners Worst Nightmare in LoL Patch 14.6

It’s very likely that Tryndamere was the cause of at least half of botlaner mains restless nights simply because he is an invincible auto-attack spammer that can solo-kill every champion that is actually fun.

It’s funny because the only buff that Tryndamere received in League of Legends Patch 14.06 was an attack speed increase from 2.9 percent to 3.4 percent. That alone is enough to tilt anyone trying to climb in soloqueue, but it’s the fact that popular Tryndamere items like Infinity Edge and Mortal Reminder have also been buffed that make this devastating for the casual League of Legends player. Unlike Shen, Tryndamere most likely won’t be an issue for pro players, but for the average League player, expect to undeservingly get flamed because you can’t kill a one hp Tryndamere under your tower.


Truthfully, the biggest reason Ornn is on this list is because tanks will always be useful in late-game teamfights, no matter how many times Tryndamere kills you under tower. The slight cooldown reduction to Ornn’s Searing Charge means that he will be able to land one to two more knock up stuns onto the enemy team in those end-game baron fights.

Let’s be honest for a second. Soloqueue games are never truly over because of how players are prone to throwing games and then attacking their teammates instead of the nexus. This slight buff to Ornn’s kit is one that will help set your teammates up to melt all the Briar and Smolder players who obviously didn’t read the patch notes. Don’t be one of those teammates and pick up Ornn. You will be thankful that you did so in your next set of ranked games.

League of Legends Patch 14.6 is finally here as the popular Riot Games MOBA has unleashed a mixed wave of buffs and nerfs that could potentially shift the meta moving forward.
