LoL Wild Rift: The best runes for every style of play

 As in League of Legends itself, Wild Rift also uses a rune system. You can use it to strengthen your characters. We at OkayGotcha reveal which runes are strongest for which player type.


What is the rune system? Before the start of a match, you put together a rune set for your champion. These reinforce your champions passively and there are different to choose from, whereby you always choose one per category:


  • 8 key runes that are particularly powerful
  • 6 dominance runes
  • 6 runes of determination
  • 6 runes of inspiration

There are templates right from the start, so you never start without runes. For some champions, however, it makes sense to deviate from these pre-made sets.

You can do this before a match, for example, by selecting a champion in the menu and then clicking on the symbol with the sword.

The rune set is basically similar to the PC version, but has a clear difference: A key rune does not determine your further route. So you can combine a little more freely.

What are the best runes? In this Tier List we would like to give you an overview of which runes are best suited for which position and style of play.

To do this, we have used our own experience, the videos from YouTuber ProGuides Wild Rift and an overview of the runes from Rankedboost.

With this list, keep in mind that there may be slightly different rune sets for individual champions of the same style of play. But as a rule you shouldn't do anything wrong with our list.


The best runes for magicians

Which key rune do you choose? As a magician you take the key rune "Electrify".

With this rune you cause additional damage if you hit an enemy 3 times with an attack or spell within 3 seconds.

Champions with many skills who can even hit twice, such as Ahri, Orianna or Ziggs, benefit greatly from this. There is no real alternative to electrification for magicians.


Ahri


Which dominance rune do you choose? The strongest dominance rune in the game when it comes to damage is Brutal. Brutal provides additional attack damage and armor penetration or additional ability damage and magic penetration.

Basically all magicians rely on this rune.

One possible alternative is "Champion". Champion gives you 10% more damage against champions, but you lose 5% of it every time you die until the bonus is used up. So if you dominate the early game and assume that you will never die, you have a clear advantage, especially at the start.

Which Rune of Determination to Choose? Mages typically used regeneration on the resolve rune. This regenerates either 2% life or mana every 3 seconds, depending on what percentage you lack.

Only Fizz is often played with the rune "Jäger - Titan". It gives you extra health and heals you on kills on enemy champions and gives you toughness at the same time.

Which inspiration rune do you choose? For magicians, “Mana Flow” is by far the best choice. Mana flow increases the maximum mana by up to 300 if you meet champions with skills often enough.

The best runes for AD carries

Which key rune do you choose? AD-Carrys love the key rune "light footedness".

Through this you get energy increases whenever you run towards an enemy. The next attack then deals additional damage and heals. This rune is ideal for a long fight in the lane.

Champions like Ashe, Jhin, Jinx, Varus or Vayne particularly like to use them because they are quite immobile.

However, some champions, such as Ezreal or Draven, benefit a little more from the "Conqueror" rune. This gives you an increase in adaptive power (up to 5 stacks) every time you attack a champion. For each stack you inflict additional attack damage.

However, if you want to dominate the game's Ealygame, you should be light-footed.


Ezreal

Which dominance rune do you choose? The strongest dominance rune in the game when it comes to damage is Brutal. Brutal provides additional attack damage and armor penetration or additional ability damage and magic penetration.

Basically every AD carry uses this.

A possible alternative is "approaching storm". This brings attack damage or ability power every 2 minutes. Compared to "Brutal", however, it only pays off after around 8 minutes and also has no armor penetration in its luggage.

Which Rune of Determination to Choose? AD Carrys typically used regeneration in the resolve rune. This regenerates either 2% life or mana every 3 seconds, depending on what percentage you lack.

Which inspiration rune do you choose? There are two variants of AD-Carry, depending on whether you have mana or not:


  • AD-Carrys with mana use "mana flow". Mana flow increases the maximum mana by up to 300 if you meet champions with skills often enough. This is ideal for Ezreal, Ashe, Jinx or Varus.
  • If you don't have mana, like with Jhin, “Hunter - Genius” is the right choice. Above this you get skill speed and again additional skill speed if you are involved in kills.

The best runes for bruisers

Which key rune do you choose? Bruisers such as Darius, Garen, Jarvan IV, Shyvanna or Lee Sinn are strongest with the key rune “Conqueror”.

This gives you an increase in adaptive power (up to 5 stacks) every time you attack a champion. For each stack you inflict additional attack damage.


Darius and his brother Draven only appeared in Wild Rift with patch 1.1.


Which dominance rune do you choose? The strongest dominance rune in the game when it comes to damage is Brutal. Brutal provides additional attack damage and armor penetration or additional ability damage and magic penetration.

Basically every Bruiser uses this.

There is an exception if you can restrict enemies in movement as Bruiser, for example as Olaf or Xin Zhao. Then "weakness" is the better choice. It ensures that champions who have restricted movement receive 5% more damage for 5 seconds.

Which Rune of Determination to Choose? Bruiser have two options with this rune.

  • Variant 1 is "Hunter - Titan". It gives you extra health and heals you on kills on enemy champions and gives you toughness at the same time. This rune is stronger if you get kills more often, for example with Darius, Jax or Lee Sin.
  • The second variant is "Geistwanderer". It gives you 50 life points and -20% for slowing effects. It is ideal for characters like Garen, Shyvanna or Olaf.

Which inspiration rune do you choose? Bruiser basically rely on "hunter - genius". Above this you get skill speed and again additional skill speed if you are involved in kills. This rune is ideal for Darius, Garen, Jax or Wukong.

In rare cases, “mana flow” can be an alternative. Mana flow increases the maximum mana by up to 300 if you meet champions with skills often enough.


The best runes for tanks

Which key rune do you choose? For the tanks, the rune varies a bit, depending on the position and also the champion:


  • Tanks in the toplane, such as Dr. Mundo, Malphite or Nasus, like to rely on the rune "Clutching the Undead". This gives them additional damage, healing and more health every 4 seconds when attacking champions.
  • Tanks that can control opponents, such as Blitzcrank, Alistar or Amumu, benefit most from "aftershocks". Aftershock adds armor and magic resistance whenever you've immobilized a champion. At the same time, this causes AoE damage around you.
  • Braum, on the other hand, relies on the “source of life”. With this rune he marks enemy champions by restricting their movement, for example with his ability 1 or his ultimate. Now when allies attack this marked champion, they will heal themselves. A must when you're on the road as Braum support.

Malphite


Which dominance rune do you choose? In the case of tanks, a lot depends on whether they can restrict opponents in their movement. If so, “weakness” is the best dominance rune. It ensures that champions who have restricted movement receive 5% more damage for 5 seconds.

A must for champions like Alistar, Amumu, Braum, Blitzcrank, Mundo or Malphite.

If you cannot restrict movement, you should bet on "brutal". Brutal provides additional attack damage and armor penetration or additional ability damage and magic penetration.

Which Rune of Determination to Choose? The rune "Geistwanderer" is worthwhile for pure tanks on the toplane. It gives you 50 life points and -20% for slowing effects. It's ideal for tanks like Dr. Mundo, Malphite or Singed.

For supporters, however, the rune “loyalty” is ideal. This gives you and your closest ally champion armor and magic resistance. This is the best way to help your AD-Carry. So this rune is ideal for Braum, Alistar or Blitzcrank.

Which inspiration rune do you choose? There are several variants of the inspiration rune, also because none of them fit perfectly:


  • For some tanks, "Jäger - Genie" is ideal. Above this you get skill speed and again additional skill speed if you are involved in kills. Well worth it for characters like Dr. Mundo.
  • Tanks that also consume a lot of mana should use "mana flow". Mana flow increases the maximum mana by up to 300 if you meet champions with skills often enough. This is good for Nasus or Malphite.
  • For supporters such as Braum, Alistar or Blitzcrank, “Rudeljäger” is the best choice. This gives nearby allies + 2% movement speed. There is also additional gold when you defeat an enemy together with an ally.


The best runes for healers

Which key rune do you choose? Supporters who rely on healing or magical damage should choose the “Benefee” key rune.

This sends a benefit to the enemy in the event of attacks and abilities, which inflicts damage and gives allies a shield.

These champions include Soraka, Janna, Nami, Seraphine, Sona or Support-Lux.


Soraka is a classic support and brings healing for her AD-Carrys.


Which dominance rune do you choose? With the healers, it also depends on whether you can restrict the movement of enemies. If so, "weakness" is an option. It ensures that champions who have restricted movement receive 5% more damage for 5 seconds.

This rune is ideal for Janna or Seraphine.

Healers who also cause damage are best to choose “Brutal”. It provides additional attack damage and armor penetration or additional ability damage and magic penetration.

Which Rune of Determination to Choose? The rune "loyalty" is ideal for supporters. This gives you and your closest ally champion armor and magic resistance. This is the best way to help your AD-Carry.

Which inspiration rune do you choose? For supporters, "pack hunters" is the best choice. This gives nearby allies + 2% movement speed. There is also additional gold when you defeat an enemy with an ally.

The best runes for assassins

Which key rune do you choose? The Assassins have two types of key runes.

Assassins with many skills, such as Zed or Akali, rely on "electrification". With this rune you cause additional damage if you hit an enemy 3 times with an attack or spell within 3 seconds.

Assassins who tend towards Bruiser, like Yasuo or Camille, rely on "conquerors". This gives you an increase in adaptive power (up to 5 stacks) every time you attack a champion. For each stack you inflict additional attack damage.


Zed is arguably the most famous assassin in LoL and also has an appearance in Wild Rift.


Which dominance rune do you choose? The strongest dominance rune in the game when it comes to damage is Brutal. Brutal provides additional attack damage and armor penetration or additional ability damage and magic penetration.

Basically every assassin uses them.

Which Rune of Determination to Choose? Assassins often rely on the rune "Hunter - Titan". It gives you extra health and heals you when killing enemy champions, while also giving you toughness. She is especially strong on Akali.

Here, however, you can also bet on “spirit wanderers”. It gives you 50 life points and -20% for slowing effects. As an assassin, you especially want to avoid slowdowns.

Which inspiration rune do you choose? Assassins rely on "hunter - genius". Above this you get skill speed and again additional skill speed if you are involved in kills.

This rune is the most worthwhile for any assassin.
