After trying nearly all of the potential AD carries in the game, it came to me that no one did a comprehensive tier list of all the possible AD carries INCLUDING the good but strange ones (like Sona or Malzahar). So here I go ! Only ranged allowed :-) If you want to try some strange thing, why not checking this first ?

TIER 1 and 2 are playable in ranked. TIER 3 can be played in ranked but will be a little hard.

TIER 4 is for fun in normal. TIER 5 is the troll tier : you won't have fun, and you probably will be useless.


29-11-2011: created. Sivir moved from TIER 2 to TIER 1.

  • Utility 5 - Rez 5

  • Mobility 8 - Range 8

  • Mobility 4 - Range 6
  • Utility 2 - Rez 3
  • Difficulty +


TIER 3 (good in something, average in others)

LeBlancSquare LeBlanc : most likely the hardest carry AD ever. Quite strong, but so DAMN HARD TO PLAY. Tons of possibilies. Underestimated because too hard to play.

  • Damage 5 - AOE 3
  • Mobility 10 - Range 6
  • Utility 8 - Rez 4
  • Difficulty +++++


KennenSquare Kennen : underestimated. very high damage, free stuns and awesome mobility. Could probably belong to tier 2.

  • Mobility 9 - Range 7
  • Utility 7 - Rez 4
  • Difficulty ++

  • Damage 8 - AOE 4
  • Mobility 6 - Range 5
  • Utility 7 - Rez 5
  • Difficulty ++


JannaSquare Janna : Would be tier 2 if she had 100 more range. TONS OF DAMAGE ! Awesome kit too with mobility, utility, etc. !

  • Damage 9 - AOE 3
  • Mobility 6 - Range 3
  • Utility 8 - Rez 4
  • Difficulty +++


Twisted FateSquare Twisted Fate : a good average carry AD. His ultimate teleport which is really strong - and it does actually a lot of damage too. His range is very low, though.

  • Damage 8 - AOE 3
  • Mobility 4 - Range 4
  • Utility 6 - Rez 4
  • Difficulty +++


AnnieSquare Annie : very beefy with an awesome range and good laner. AD can max shield first and retain stun as long as wanted, which gives her a pretty good advantage. Hard to kill. Probably underestimated.

  • Damage 5 - AOE 6
  • Mobility 2 - Range 9
  • Utility 5 - Rez 9
  • Difficulty ++


KayleSquare Kayle : doesn't really fit in the meta because her range is bind to her AOE damage ; early game is pretty weak too. Can unleash TONS OF DAMAGE if fed, but will most likely never be fed or picked.

  • Damage 9 - AOE 7
  • Mobility 5 - Range 5
  • Utility 4 - Rez 4
  • Difficulty ++


TIER 4 (good in something but big weaknesses)

LuxSquare Lux : good passive scalling, good controls, good range : overall average. Could probably fit in the tier 3 but I don't feel like it's her right place right now. I'll investigate more.

  • Damage 6 - AOE 5
  • Mobility 4 - Range 6
  • Utility 7 - Rez 5
  • Difficulty ++


SwainSquare Swain : good DoT scalling, good control, but very short range... If the range was at least slightly better, it would move to tier 3.

  • Damage 7 - AOE 3
  • Mobility 4 - Range 3
  • Utility 6 - Rez 5
  • Difficulty ++


TeemoSquare Teemo : most overestimated carry AD. Poor range, very frail, limited mobility... Good AD carry/ Support, but AD carry ? No, thanks.

  • Damage 8 - AOE 2
  • Mobility 4 - Range 4
  • Utility 8 - Rez 1
  • Difficulty +


AniviaSquare Anivia : could be awesome if her auto-attack animation wasn't so TERRIBLE. A stun, a slow, a wall - good rez and range - but no damage, and an auto-attack which is really, really not "cool". You just can't carry with her and that's sad because everything else is damn good.

  • Damage 4 - AOE 4
  • Mobility 2 - Range 8
  • Utility 9 - Rez 8
  • Difficulty ++


NidaleeSquare Nidalee : range correct, but cougar scalling not that good. Nice steroid and awesome mobility though.

  • Damage 6 - AOE 3
  • Mobility 7 - Range 5
  • Utility 4 - Rez 4
  • Difficulty ++


TIER 5 (average/bad in everything)

SorakaSquare Soraka : good range. Starcall can synergyze with magical proc from items ! (!!!) Awesome sustain. That's pretty much all.

RyzeSquare Ryze : a good control and range, and can scale with manamune at least. Not that useful though.

VeigarSquare Veigar : a good control and range, and can still stack AP and go hybrid eventually. Not really useful, but can be fun.

BrandSquare Brand : some range and a passive that applies anyway. That's all.

HeimerdingerSquare Heimerdinger : your turrets ! They work ! Awesome !


TIER 6 (not viable : only weaknesses)

FiddlesticksSquare Fiddlesticks : a fear is all you get. No range, no damage.

KarthusSquare Karthus : as awesome as Wall Of Pain is, it is the only think you have. Forget it.

KarmaSquare Karma : a good slow and uh... Well, that pretty much all. But damn, this slow is very good. Eeeerrrrr. Range ? No, she has none.

MorganaSquare Morgana : a cage won't be enough.

XerathSquare Xerath : sadly, your W doesn't increase the auto-attack range. So you have exactly nothing to help you.

CassiopeiaSquare Cassiopeia : at least you have some range.

VladimirSquare Vladimir : your sanguine pool will help you feed less. Maybe.
