Best League of Legends Items
In this list of the best League of Legends items, we have broken it down into a few categories: tanks, DPS, and Spellcasters (also DPS). This is because the best items in the game vary from hero to hero. With that said, here are the best League of Legends Items:
Best League of Legends Items for Tanks
Atma’s Impaler: +45 to armor and +18% to critical strike, it’s one of the best items for a tank since it adds 2% of your maximum health to your attack damage.
Ninja Tabi: The boots to get if you’re playing tank. +25 to armor, +12% to dodge chance and the enhanced movement speed of 2.
Warmog’s Armor: One of the best health-boosting items in the game, this is pretty much a must for any tank.
Thornmail: A +100 to armor and a return of 30% damage against standard attacks, a very handy item for playing against (Damage Per Second) champions.
Leviathan: As tank, you’ll probably end up getting more assists than kills, but this works out well anyway. +180 health for every stack, one stack for assist and two for kills. Similar to Sword of the Occult and Mejaj’s Soulstealer.
Guardian Angel: Though probably preferred by more damage dealing champions, this armor gives you +68 armor and +38 magic resistance. And best of all, it revives you upon death, every five minutes.
Frozen Mallet: +700 to health and +20 to attack damage, and a movement reduction of 40% for 2.5 seconds is a very handy for a tank.
Banshee’s Veil: +375 to both health and mana, it also gives you +50 to magic resist and a block of one negative spell every 30 seconds. It’s a must have when you’re up against mage champions.
Best League of Legends Items for DPS
Sword of the Occult: The equivalent to Leviathan, this item gives you about 5 damage per stack, similarly two stacks for a kill and one for assist. Don’t die a lot, otherwise it can be useless.
Phantom Dancer: +55% to attack speed, +30% critical strike, +15% movement speed. Enough said.
Madred’s Bloodrazor: +30 to damage, +40% to attack speed and +25 to armor. Not much? Additionally, this deals 4% of target’s maximum health as magic damage.
The Bloodthirster: +60 to damage, +15 to lifesteal. Basic enough, but in addition, you get +1 damage and +.25% lifesteal per kill. The bonuses are lost upon death but the kills can be minions or champions.
Last Whisper+40 to damage with a bonus of +40% to armor penetration. Handy against tanky champions. Or any champions.
Infinity Edge: +75 to damage, and +20% to critical strike, and instead of dealing 200%, you deal 250% on critical hits.
Guinsoo’s Rageblade: +35 to damage, +45 ability power and every attack and spells cast increase your attack speed by 4% and ability power by 6 for 5 seconds (up to 8 times).
Hextech Gunblade: For champions going for a sort of more hybrid build Attacd Damage (AD)/Ability Power(AP)-wise, this is their lifesteal weapon with a +20% to lifesteal as well as +20% to spell vamp, it’s awesome thanks to its more than decent +60 to damage and +75 to ability power.
Manamune: Also for the hybrid, it gives you +350 to mana, +7 mana regen over 5 seconds and +20 attack damage. As a bonus, it takes 2% of your mana to convert to attack damage. As even more of a bonus, Each time you attack, you gain one maximum mana (3 second cooldown.) Each time you use an ability, you gain four maximum mana (3 second cooldown.) The bonus caps at +1000, though.
The Black Cleaver: +55 damage, and +30% attack speed, plus physical attacks reduce your target’s Armor by 15 for 5 seconds (maximum 3 stacks).
Trinity Force: This one a great item, an all-rounder. +30 to damage, +30 ability power, +30% attack speed, +15% critical chance, +12% movement speed, +250 health, and finally +250 mana. Also, there’s a 25% chance on hit to slow the target by 35% for 2.5 seconds; and on casting abilities, increases your base damage by 150% for one attack.
Best League of Legends Items for DPS (Spellcaster)
Rylai’s Sceptor: +80 ability power and +500 health, and dealing spell damage slows the target’s movement speed by 35% for 2 seconds (15% for multi-target spells).
Rabadon’s Deathcap: +155 to ability power, plus passively gives you +30% bonus of your AP.
Rod of Ages: +80 ability power, +630 health, +725 mana. Your champion gains 18 health, 20 mana, and 2 ability power every 1 min. Bonuses cap at +180 health, +200 mana and +20 ability power.

Archangel’s Staff: +45 Ability Power, 1400 Mana, 25 Mana per 5 Sec and 3% of your Max Mana is converted to Ability Power.
Mejaj’s Soulstealer: +20 to AP, but there’s an additional 8 AP for every stack. Same as before, two stacks a kill and one for assist.
Ionian Boots of Lucidity: +15% cooldown reduction and the basic enhanced movement of 2.
Deathfire Grasp: 60 Ability Power, 10 Mana Per 5 Sec and gives you a +15% cooldown reduction. Actively, it deals damage to a target champion equal to 30% of their current health plus an amount of your AP.
Abyssal Staff: 70 Ability Power, 57 Magic Resist. UNIQUE Aura: Reduces the Magic Resist of nearby enemy champions by 20. Really handy if you’re playing against a lot of mage champions.
