Just before we get started we'd love to hear your input on what annoys you the most in the current meta? whether it be an item, a champion, a certain role, anything really. Personally Id have to go with any turbo chemtank user. Playing as an adc into champs like hecarim, udyr or skarner who can just press a button and take you out with no counterplay feels really awful. The amount of move speed champs can acquire in season 11 is pretty ludacris if you ask me. Nevertheless, let us know your thoughts down in the comments below as to what annoys you the most. With that said, let's get right into it What's up everyone and welcome back to the skillcapped tier list for patch 11.7. As expected we're finally seeing some nerfs to chemtank along with other OP picks like hecarim and thresh.
For all the yorick mains out there that have been begging riot for quality of life changes you're finally in luck. As always our tier lists are pieced together with the help of our challenger players along with the analysis of the most up to date stats so you guys can have the best read on the meta. With that said, let's get right into it Starting off with the item changes, we'll give you guys a quick rundown and talk about which champions will be affected the most. Serylda's Grudge will see a cost reduction going from 3400 down to 3200. A few adcs in sivir and ezreal along with ad assassins like zed and qiyana will receive indirect buffs thanks to this change. Lord dominik's will be receiving a nerf for this patch as the cost is being increased from 2900 up to 3000 along with the AD going down from 35 to 30. Since lord doms and serlyda's are both armor pen items, this will now put much higher priority on serylda's for certain champions. For someone like zed who performs equally as well with both items in previous patches, serylda's will likely take over as the best tank shredding option. Most of your traditional crit marksman who always build lord doms over serylda's will become ever so slightly weaker against tanks later on. Trinity force will receive a mini rework for 11.7 as the ad is being increased from 25 to 30 while the attack speed is lowered from 35 down to 30. A new affect to the passive will be tacked on allowing you to gain passive stacks while
hitting towers. This will in turn give trinity force a nice added boost to its split push power. The mythic passive will be changed from 10 percent attack speed per legendary to 3 AD, 3 MS and 3 Haste per legendary. Overall it looks like riot is trying to bring back tri force as that keystone split push option and prevent people from rushing essence reaver instead. Speaking of ER, its receiving some nerfs for 11.7 as the cost is being lowered from 2900 down to 2800 but the AD lowered from 55 down to 45. Considering 10 AD is worth 350 gold the slight decrease in price is not worth what you're losing in AD. Its kinda odd riot is taking this route as many ER users like Xayah and Lucian are already in pretty bad states but aren't being compensated with any buffs this patch. With these ER nerfs and triforce buffs we will surely see a handful of champions swap over to building Triforce now. Gangplank is one pick whos actually already been performing better with Trinity in 11.6 so you should definitely stop bulding ER on him and rush Trinity now. For someone like ezreal, a divine sunderer rush could definitely make a comeback or even
trinity may now be a solid pickup for him. Fiora's been the main abuser of this ER rush yet she's still performing very well with many other build options so we don't expect her to fall in power due to this nerf. Ever since its buffs from a few patches back everfrost has been completely busted on so many different champs. As a result riot will be toning it down a notch with the active damage being reduced from 120 plus 35 percent AP down to 100 plus 30 percent AP. The active cooldown will be increased from 20 to 30 seconds. Overall pretty fair nerfs and we like the fact they're hitting the active cooldown. A 20 seconds CD on such an impactful CC lock tool was just way too short and even at 30 seconds everfrost will still be really strong. Everfrost abusers will all become slightly weaker but most won't feel the effects enough to drop down the tier list. The final item change goes the way of turbo chemtank and we're kinda shocked its not being hit harder. The active movespeed is being lowered from 75 down to 60 percent however the slow is buffed going from 40 to 50 percent.
Its odd riot keeps giving these obviously broken items compensation buffs. They did the same with stridebreaker where they decreased the damage and slow but increased the dash range and we all know how that played out. Stridebreaker ended up just as strong if not stronger than before those changes. We're eyeing the same kinda of effect here with chemtank. Sure it may end up slightly weaker but by no means will this change reduce the strength of chemtank to the point where you would stop buying it. Chemtank will still remain a busted item on most tank champs so continue to abuse for 11.7. Mordekaiser's the only top laner with buffs in the pipeline as his q isolation bonus damage will be increased going from 30 scaling to 50 percent up to 40 scaling to 60 percent. For the majority of elos mordekaiser has been in a pretty mediocre spot the last few patches. High elo morde's been struggling a bit more but for the average rank we've had him listed as an A tier top laner. We don't see that changing with this buff as its not enough to push morde into S tier but he'll now be a really solid A tier pickup. If we have a look at our complete top lane tier list things are looking a bit different
for 11.7. We've moved wukong up into OP tier accompanied by darius, urgot, riven and garen. Wukong's been a massive sleeper pick over the past few patches and with trinity force buffed for 11.7 he's going to rise up even further. Wu has very few bad matchups in the meta as he smashes most bruiser picks and performs especially well into gnar and darius who are picked so much right now. As Wu moves up we have dropped malphite down from OP into S. With sylas buffed and being played a ton more along with chogaths rise in play rate mal has become a much more vulnerable blind pick. Don't get us wrong he's still an amazing carry option but just a cut below those OP champs now. Thanks to the trinity force changes camille will be moving back into S tier. Jax and Irelia could very well move up the tier list too however we'll have to see exactly how impactful the tri force changes pan out to be. Unlike jax and irelia, camille has been ever so close to breaking back into S so that's why we're confident in moving her up. Our analysts will have a really good read on the tri force buffs for our mid patch update tier list so be sure to check back then to know if any other picks have moved up.
The best low elo champs for top lane will include malphite, garen and urgot. Highest priority on your ban list should be darius, malphite and urgot.

Moving onto a bunch of jungle changes, first off we have another nerf to udyr. Udyr's base AD has been lowered from 66 down to 64. We all love to meme about these base stat nerfs but especially for a jungler it affects them more than you'd think. Not only does this nerf hurt udyr's dueling power but it stunts his clear speed a little
as well. Even with this change though we still see udyr holding onto S tier by a thread for 11.7. The most OP jungler from 11.6 in hecarim is receiving an extremely light nerf considering how busted he is. E max move speed will be lowered from 75 down to 65 percent. That's it, that's the nerf. There must be a rioter who one tricks hecarim on the balance team because a champion with a 54 percent win rate being issued this small of a nerf just doesn't make sense. Even with the chemtank nerfs tacked on we dont expect hec to fall out of OP. A nerf to ivern's shield damage is in store going from 70 scaling to 170 down to 70 scaling to 150. You'll definitely feel this change in the mid game especially since you max e out first but this is honestly a pretty light nerf considering iverns state. Believe it or not ivern's actually held a higher win rate than hecarim over the past patch and is one of the most sleeper op junglers in the game. Our analysts don't expect that to change for 11.7 as we'll be leaving the tree in S. One of two junglers receving some buffs for this patch is kindred as there Q ad ratio
will be increased from 65 to 75 percent and E cooldown reduced from 18 scaling to 14 seconds down to 16 scaling to 12 seconds. Kindred's been in a pretty OK state the past few patches, nothing special but not on the weak side either. Thanks to these buffs our analysts see kindred slotting in as a good A tier jungle pickup. Its kinda hard to believe amumu was at one point the most broken jungler in the game during pre season. After item nerfs and direct nerfs he fell to a pretty bad spot so riot is buffing the sad mummy up in 11.7. Q mana cost will be lowered from 50 scaling to 70 down to 30 scaling to 50. E cooldown will be lowered by 1 second at all ranks. Amumu will find himself moving back up the list from B into A tier. For high elo amumu will still remain a pretty weak pick but for the majority of elos A tier is where we see him landing. Shaco is now an OP jungle pick for patch 11.7. Its been such a long time since shaco's had the spotlight and he'll now take full control of it this patch. W damage to monster buff along with the passive buff have directly increased shaco's power
level but its more so the indirect changes that have really been adding up. Hecarim, Udyr, Ivern, Karthus, Skarner, Lillia the list really just goes on and on as to the junglers who have been nerfed over the past couple of patches. These two different reasons are to why shaco's moving up and a pick you can't be sleeping on in 11.7. Khazix, Elise and Hecarim will remain the other 3 OP picks of the patch. Xin Zhao will be bumped up from B into A tier this patch as he's starting to perform much better after his mini rework. One other adjustment we're making is moving karthus from S down to A tier. He's feeling the affects of the Q nerf last patch more than we anticipated so we're making the appropriate change. If you guys missed our mid patch update tier list from 11.6, Volibear was moved up into S tier as he's a top carry pick now after his buffs. Our analyst would recommend siding with one of Mundo, Rammus or Fiddlesticks if you're looking to barge your way out of low elo. Despite his nerf hecarim will still remain a top priority ban alongside shaco and viego. Mid lane meta will see very few alterations for 11.7 as we've only got 2 direct buffs.
Lissandra Q damage is being increased by 10 at all ranks. Liss hasn't actually been in too bad of a spot recently as she's seeing more success with everfrost and against a lot of meta picks like yone, yas and katarina. This buff will shoot lissandra from B into A tier. Yasuo will be receiving an AD per level buff going from 2.2 up to 3. This means around level 13 you'll now have an extra 10 AD or 350 gold worth of stats. A pretty solid buff overall but we won't be moving yasuo up the list as he'll remain in S tier. So like we noted a moment ago, not much movement for mid lane in 11.7. Kassadin is moving out of OP and down to S due to the everfrost nerfs. Op picks will now consist of Galio, Anivia and Fizz. Keep your eye on ad assassins and especially zed this patch as the serylda's grudge buffs aren't anything crazy but will add a nice boost of power. We'll be watching zed closely throughout the patch and he could very well be making his way into OP soon. The best low elo picks to abuse for mid include diana, malzahar and annie. Look to use your ban on fizz, yone or zed.
It was a pretty quiet 11.6 for adc as no changes were issued but 11.7 is different as we've got 4 direct changes. Ashe will receive a really nice buff to her w damage as its being increased by 10 at all ranks. Considering this is such a short cooldown spell that can be spammed for poke, 10 extra damage will really add up. As a result Ashe will be moving from A back into S tier. Varus will receive a small buff to his AD per level going from 3 up to 3.4. Riot have tried continuously buffing varus the past while now but none of the changes have really resulted in much. We see the same happening here as this is just another buff that will make varus slightly stronger but not enough to move him up the tier list. Next up for a couple nerfs, tristana's base AD will be lowered from 61 down to 59. Its kinda crazy that after just 1 patch of tristana being on top of the meta she's immediately nerfed. Regardless, our analysts are optimistic trist will remain an OP pick for 11.7 however she'll definitely be on the edge between S and OP now. Kaisa whos been one of the most broken adc for months now will receive a cooldown nerf
to her ultimate. The cooldown will be increased from 110 scaling to 70 seconds up to 130 scaling to 70 seconds. A decent nerf to kai'sa's early game that will be enough to push her out of OP tier. Of course she wont be dropping far at all though as kai'sa will continue to dominate as a great S tier pick. Having a look at our ADC tier list now, Samira, Vayne, Jinx and Tristana will stay on top of the meta in 11.7 Like we touched on earlier the essence reaver nerfs will hurt already weak picks like xayah and lucian so we'd definitely recommend staying away from them this patch. Ezreal, draven and sivir will also become slightly weaker due to the ER nerf. The 3 best low elo picks for ADC are miss fortune, tristana and sivir. A few picks you should consider banning include samira, vayne or tristana. We have 3 pretty solid nerfs to a few of the top supports from 11.6 and lets start off by breaking down thresh. Thresh w shield will be reduced from 60 scaling to 220 down to 60 scaling to 180. Guardian thresh with W max had really started taking off in high elo recently so this nerf
is to try and combat that strategy. Keep in mind thresh has been by far the number 1 support in previous patches and he can still do just as well with a Q max so this nerf will only hurt him slightly. Thresh will retain his spot in OP tier and continue to dominate the meta for 11.7. A champion we've rated a little bit below thresh in previous patches is actually being hit with a pretty substantial nerf. Alistar's Q damage is being reduced from 60 scaling to 240 down to 60 scaling to 220 and his E damage on attack is lowered from 35 scaling to 290 down to 20 scaling to 275. This definitely puts a wrench in Ali's all in power as you'll be losing out on 35 damage with a full combo at level 9 when Q is maxed out. Alistar has been a great S tier pick in previous patches but with these nerfs we'll be dropping the minotaur down to A tier. The third support nerfed will be rell as her e stun duration is being chopped down from 0.75 to 0.5 seconds. Very similar to Alistar, rell has been holding onto S tier in previous patches but unfortunately she'll follow suit and join Ali down in A tier as well.
Braum has been slacking a bit in the weight room as of recent so riot will be buffing him back up to a really nice state. E cooldown will be reduced from 18 scaling to 10 seconds down to 16 scaling to 8 seconds. For such an impactful spell, 2 seconds off during teamfights is actually really huge. R max knock up duration will be buffed as well going from 1 scaling to 1.5 seconds up to 1 scaling to 2 seconds. Both changes combined will help lock braum down as a good A tier support pickup. Now if we have a complete look at our support tier list in 11.7, lulu, leona and thresh will continue to be the best carry options. Seraphine will be sliding back into S tier as a result of the nerfs to Alistar, Rell and Thresh. With no item adjustments for support or any other direct changes to shake things up expect the meta to look almost identical to where it was in 11.6. Our 3 low elo recommendations are brand, maokai and swain. Some of the most impactful and highly picked supports you'll want to ban include leona, thresh and morgana. And remember, if you want to improve fast and get the rank you've always wanted then
