LoL free champion rotation: July 18th – July 24th

League of Legends is in its 14th year of existence, ever since it went live back in 2009. Throughout the years, Riot has made constant changes to the game, adding champions and bringing updates to make the game refreshing. Learning and mastering all these characters takes time. Riot has a system that unlocks champions with Blue Essence, but getting all of them requires a lot of playtime.

Luckily for newcomers and those who do not wish to spend money to get the champions, Riot gives players the chance to try most of them with the weekly champion rotation, allowing them to test out the given champion for free.

Currently, the developers allow you to have a minimum of 16 free champions each week. That said, these numbers have been increasing over the past few months. For this week, we have a total of 29 champions to try out, so it’s the perfect occasion to get some more games played.

Best champions to play in this week’s free rotation

League of Legends is an extremely dynamic game, where patches can make certain strategies or champions stronger than others. By looking at the current weekly rotation, we are going to break down the strongest champions to play, one per role.

  • Top – Jax
  • Jungle – Viego
  • Mid – Lux
  • ADC – Jhin
  • Support – Bard

If you’re looking for a champion to carry as a top laner this week, we recommend Jax. Ever since his rework at the start of season 13, he has been steadily one of the best and most consistent top laners out there. He does a wonderful job in 1v1s and has immense split-push potential. Not to mention how he can also go full AP and one-shot enemies left and right if you want to have some fun. He’s not that strong early, but as soon as he gets his first and second item, you will start to dominate everyone on the map.

If you want to carry games as a jungler, instead, go for Viego. He’s one of the best damage-oriented junglers in the current meta. On top of that, he can possess enemies’ souls, giving you the chance to try multiple champions at once. If you’re not familiar with how the jungle role works, here is a fully explained guide on how to jungle in LoL.

For mid lane, we always recommended playing Lux when she’s available. She’s fun and easy to play, making it perfect for people trying to learn the game. Not only that, but she also has a great carry potential with the burst damage she offers.

Among the ADC choices for this week, we recommend Jhin. The Virtuoso is one of the most satisfying champions to play in League, with fluid animations and a fun kit that rewards great execution. While he’s not among the best ADCs of the meta, having a good support alongside him will make the experience much better.

To round off the list, we have Bard for support. If you like the idea of moving around the map and helping out multiple allies, this is the right champion for you. He offers good crowd controls and provides good escape routes with his E, Magical Journey. Not to mention how he excels at disengaging and neutralizing enemies’ aggression with the ultimate.

These are our recommendations for the week! That said, feel free to try everyone out: maybe you’ll find a special chemistry with other champions! We’ll be back next week to see who you can try in the following LoL free champion rotation!
