With Patch 10.6 upon us, well into Season 10 of League of Legends – most players are hard at work trying to climb the ranked ladder to earn their season rewards and carry themselves to a higher ELO bracket. And it’s on this journey that the question of best bot lane combos comes up all too often.
With so many players choosing either marksman or support as their go-to role and a vast pool of champions available to fill the roster – it can be hard to pick out the best bot lane combos that will have you crushing your competition and stomping your way through the ranked ladder.
But hey – that’s what we’re here for!
Let’s dive right in and take a look at the best picks when it comes to synergy, consistent all-game pressure, and snowball potential.
1. Senna ADC & Soraka Support
While this probably seems like a troll pick upfront – it’s actually an insanely potent combo that offers a ton of benefit to your team while providing an insane laning phase alongside it all.
The win conditions for Senna & Soraka are to play aggressively and poke their laners down early while outsustaining them with their flexible kit. Then as the game transitions towards midgame where objectives and team fights start to take priority – this combo should group up with their team and make use of their busted kit to carry their team to the win.
The only trick that you’ll have to be aware of is that you’ll need to use Senna’s Glacial Augment while poking with her Q to make hitting Soraka’s insanely OP Q a breeze. Combine them together, and you can simply poke them out of lane at any point in time. Logically, this opens up a tonne of objective pressure and allows their team to secure easy objectives from the get-go, which is why they’re one of the best bot lane combos in Season 10.
2. Taliyah Pantheon – The Ultimate Kill Lane
Do you want to get a guaranteed level 1 kill every game? If so, then this combo is for you. Pantheon stuns, auto-attacks, and Taliyah follows up with a nice Q – and voila, first blood!
This combo is currently one of the most underrated low-ELO stomp lanes out and about. While experienced players can hold their own to some extent (with GREAT difficulty), lower-bracket players will be absolutely at a loss as to how to stop the massacre they’re bound to see in bot lane.
To win their lane and carry the game Pantheon and Taliyah should try to secure first blood, and all in where possible during level 2 and level 3 power spikes. Once they both hit level 6 and get their ultimate, they’ll need to roam together to help other lanes get ahead and create objective priority for their team. Their kits combined basically guarantee and insta-kill on any champion in the game, and their insanely overpowered synergy allows them to dominate anything and everything that comes at them.
Here’s a tip – to wipe enemy players off the screen with one of the best bot lane combos, you’ll need to use Pantheon’s empowered W followed by Taliyah’s full damage combo. Voila!
3. Aphelios ADC & Janna Support
Incredibly quickly after his initial introduction to the League of Legends player base, Aphelios has already earned his rightful place as yet another “Yasuo” pick. Players either carry the game 1v9 style or just run down their lane and go 0/20 10 minutes into the game with him.
And while undeniably, Aphelios’ carry potential is massive, most players struggle to stay alive until he gets his first couple of items, which is where he becomes relevant. This is due to the fact that he just doesn’t have a gap-close ability or any sorts to get up close and personal or get out of trouble on his own.
Thankfully, if any support can keep someone alive, it’s Janna – the ultimate peel-machine!
This combo allows for Aphelios to have infinite peel while farming hard early to get his core win-enabling items. And as soon as he hits his power-spike, if the enemy AD Carry isn’t fed, they may as well FF early. The win condition here is really simple too, and it mostly relies on Janna’s ability to just keep Aphelios alive and out of excessive trouble.
While there are tons of different duos you can run to power-carry your games, we’ve laid out the 3 best bot lane combos in Patch 10.6 of Season 10 to help you smash through the ranked ladder and secure some #FreeELO for yourself.
