Im curious about this. Ive heard of several champs that play as support. Many of which seem very odd or just bad (support Ashe). But it would be nice to have a consolidated list:


a) Soroka - high poke, gives mana, heals. global heal.

b) Sona - strong poke, decent damage, heals, aoe stun.

c) Alistar - heals, tough, good defense of carry. Ability to setup kills.

d) Blitzcrank - strong ability to set up kills and force defensive play by enemy. No healing though. Limited use as a tank due to lack of gold.

e) Janna - no heal during laning, but knockup, global speed booster, shield that is great for AD champs.

f) Taric - tanky, heals, stuns.

Who else?

Ive heard of Gangplank support, using Parrley as harass, AD/movespeed booster and ult as "support". Transitions into a decent tanky DPS later on.

Nidalee can heal and boost attack speed plus ward up the brush. Not really seen her as support though.

Karma just sucks.
Galio might work but he would push the lane.
Kayle - havent seen her for ages.
Lux - Ive seen her as support. Super annoying with Caitlyn.
Zilean/Morgana - in theory they are support but usually go Mid.

i actually love zilean going bot or top due to being able to place bombs on lower hp champions and see them run into their buddy for help XD.

technically they are a lot of champions that COULD be support based on gameplay of the person.

I can see Nunu. His consume is useful for healing as long as it stays rank 1, since it won't actually kill a full health melee minion.
Sadly his Passive isn't of as much use since he isnt autoattacking creeps and likely cant attack the enemy.
But yeah, snowball and blood boil are certainly good and hes a good support mid/lategame too.


Ive seen Leona since she can tank decently even with minimal equipment like Alistar.

But Malphite? He kinda needs some farm to toughen up since he definitely the initiator. Shen needs to farm it up some too doesn't he?

Sona, Soraka, Taric, Janna, Alistar are the 5 most common.

Nunu is being seen more often now.
Leona and Blitzcrank are highly aggressive supports that work by zoning the enemy and grabbing them and killing them if they slip up.

Champions like Galio, Shen, Gangplank, Yorick, Nidalee, and other champions with good ranged harass can also be viable.
But I'd stick with the first 8 champions for non-gimicky support. All the others have various weaknesses in their support role that make them less suited for it.

Leona is a cc support similar to alistar but without the heal. she can zone out the enemy especially with another champion with cc. e.g. ashe or mf. yorick support was played before but not very sucessful due to his need of farm. he could zone out the enemy though. generally supports OFTEN have skills that scale well through the whole game like cc.

Lux is viable, but on the aggressive side. I played Fiddle as support and it was awesome. Fear, great harass, easily heal back harass, and dat ult. Definitely a normal pick though.
