The ADC meta in LoL keeps changing with the item changes in each patch. Some champions that were forgotten for a long time are now top contenders for the OP tier.
There are some unique item/champion combinations that make those champions perform on an unprecedented level.
In this Top 3 ADC in Patch 13.14 article, we will explore who are the best marksmen to play in solo Q and why they are as good as they are right now!
Top 3 ADC in patch 13.14: Kai’Sa
Even with another round of nerfs for Statikk Shiv this patch, the item continues to perform extremely well on Kai’Sa.
She is probably the most versatile ADC in the meta right now. The champion has three unique builds that can be used in different situations, and all of them are powerful.
Kai’Sa also loves the shift from enchanter supports to engage supports as she is not an on-hit hyper carry like Kog’Maw or Vayne.
With the high CC engage supports she gets way more value out of her passive.

Statikk Shiv into Nashor’s Tooth makes Kai’Sa extremely nimble in team fights and enables her to damage potential greatly.
After that point, you can make a choice between Guinsoo’s Rageblade and Luden’s Echo.
If you are able to free-fire auto attacks on team fights, Guinsoo’s Rageblade is the choice.
If you are unable to get close due to high cc or a strong assassin in the enemy team, it is better to play with Luden’s Echo and poke with W.
With this much versatility, she is definitely a top 3 adc in patch 13.14.
After the ADC item update, Ashe players started to realize how strong Trinity Force is on Ashe.
The item boosts literally every aspect of Ashe, putting everything Ashe does to the next level.
The core thing that Ashe wants to do is to kite. She is a great champion with her passive slow and above-average range.
Trinity force boosts this kiting ability with the stacking movement speed it provides.
Ashe also likes to be in longer sustained fights as her damage ramps up in time. Trinity Force also boosts this by ramping up her damage with the passive stacks.
On top of that, Ashe is also a great caster with W and ultimate abilities.
These cooldowns are key to her success in team fights, and she benefits greatly from the cooldown reduction provided by the Trinity Force.
Lastly, she is a squishy and immobile ADC, so the HP stat from the Trinity Force is the cherry on top.
With the low cooldown on high-importance skills, ramping up damage, movement speed for kiting, and a little bit of durability coming from Trinity Force, Ashe is a top 3 adc in patch 13.14
Xayah is another one of the ADCs with a unique build in this patch. The champion is solid with the Kraken Slayer into Navori’s Quickblades build.
Xayah is a unique ADC who does most of her damage with abilities instead of auto attacks. We can think about it as 60% abilities and 40% auto attacks.
So, the impermanence passive of Navori’s Quickblades that boosts the ability damage based on the critical strike chance is a tailor-cut item feature for Xayah.
Also, with Rakan being an S-tier support pick and support meta shifting from enchanters to engagers, Xayah is having a great time in bot lane.
We have mentioned the top 3 best ADC in patch 13.14. With the current state of the meta, the question is no longer “Which champions are strong.”
Instead, it is “which champions can utilize the OP items the best” These three champions have very solid synergy with their items, and this is the main source of their strength!
