League of Legends has so many character that they continue to add on too.
But how do we define them?
What type are they?
If they are a certain type, what does that mean
For those of you who're at my level, please help me out with listing more characters, & try to give me there main category I should put them under!
Example of what I mean is like Evelynn, I put her under stealth because of her skill, but she is also considered to be an assassin.
Later on if I feel up to it, I will list all characters in all their categories.
Lets go over the general types of Characters you'll see.
Now then, you're probably wondering what they all specifically they are.
& Obviously I'm making this to tell you & explain to you what they are.
Tanks are the characters that initiate the battles. They take very little damage, & some tend to have high HP. There main stats are Armor & Magic Resist. Tanks often build items that revolve around the enemy team; if the enemies have a lot of AP, the tank would get Magic Resist, if the enemy team had a lot of AD the tank would get Armor.
: Rammus, Malphite, Amumu, & Shen.
DPS Otherwise known as Damage Per Second. These are the characters that are mainly AD type. They deal heavy damage, & will gain even more Damage as they build there items. This category branches off into 3 divisions, Melee, Ranked, & Tanky.
Melee are hand to hand combat characters that are in the front lines of battle.
Ranged are the characters who're in the back lines, hitting enemies from a far.
Tanky are DPS's that are either melee, or ranged, but most commonly are melee, these types are naturally more "beefy" meaning they're not squishy & can be claimed as "off-tank" types.
), Lee Sin(Tanky/Melee
Mages are your typical AP character that deal the most damage with their spells rather than there Auto/Normal Attacks. These mage's excel in Magic Damage, otherwise referred to as AP.
: Kassadin, Fiddlestick, Lux, Le Blanc, & Annie.
Assassins are great at hopping out of no where, hitting the enemies with great sudden bursts of high damage, & then skipping away like nothing ever happened. Some assassins will have a stealth skill, but some do not. either way an assassin is ment to deal a great amount of damage, & being able to get away without taking much damage.
: Akali, Katarina, & Nocturne.
Stealth characters have a skill that turns them invisible for a certain amount of time. They too are assassins, but I wanted to make them a separate category because, they are able to get away using stealth, not great speed/escape skills. (technically stealth is one, but you know what i mean. Kat has shunpo, nocturne has his shield, akali has her ulti)
Evelynn, Twitch, & Shaco.
Support characters are charcters that preform better in game with a lane partner, there skills consist of buffs, or shields to help out their teammates. Some supports even have an ultimate skill that literally gives there teammates a second chance at life.
: Kayle, Zilean, Karma & Orianna.
Healers are a subcategory under Support. As well as supporting, they provide heals to help there teammates from not dieing. Healers do not have to be weak, & squishy, there are some healers that can deal heavy damage as well as providing a good heal.
Some Examples of Characters that have Healing skills..
Taric, Nidalee, Sona, Soraka, Kayle, Karma, & Janna.
