League Of Legends: Champions Categories

As we have seen above there are six categories of champions in the League of Legends game. Let’s see each of them one by one.

Marksman or AD (attack damage) Carries

This category of champions has no subclass. These champions are identified as ranged auto-attackers who aim to stay in the backline, applying consistent damage, and are equipped to deal with tanks. Some examples of Marksmen are Vayne, Ashe, and Sivir.

Mage or AP (ability power) Carries

Since it has a myriad number of champions so Riot Games has further divided this category into three sub-categories: Burst Mages, Battle Mages, Artillery Mages.

  • Burst Mages are the champions that can lock down and kill a single target like Lux, but struggle against tanks.
  • Battle Mages are the champions that can still deal damage from range but are equipped with the ability to survive in close range fights too like Vladimir.
  • Artillery Mages are the champions that can inflict high amounts of damage from far ranges but are largely immobile and lack easy access to crowd control like Xerath.

Slayers

This category of champions is further sub-divided into Assassins and Skirmishers who can inflict higher and more reliable damage but have low survivability.

  • Assassins are offensive-oriented champions with mobility which allow them to enter and escape a fight, like Zed.
  • Skirmishers are the champions having abilities that enable them to enter a fight and then survive for a longer period of time without escaping, like Fiora.

Tanks

This category of champions has two types: Vanguards and Wardens.

  • Vanguards are attacking sub-category with offensive and fight initiating equipment, like Malphite.
  • Wardens are a defensive sub-category with protective traits, like Braum.

Fighters

This category of champions is further sub-divided into Juggernauts and Divers having high survivability.

  • Juggernauts are the champions with significant damage potential but limited mobility, like Darius.
  • Divers have high single-target damage, low area of effect, but are often highly mobile, like Xin Zhao.

Controllers or Support

This category of champions is divided into two types: Enchanters and Disruptors.

  • Enchanters are the champions with the ability to buff allies and lockdown enemies but do very little damage to them like Lulu.
  • Disruptors are the champions with the ability to slow the advance of the enemy team, thwarting their engagements, and weakening the enemy team like Anivia.
