Dominate the 2v2v2v2 lobby with the strongest champion duos in 13.14. Here are the best duos for Arena, the newest game mode for League of Legends.
Arena has finally hit the live servers, and many new and old League players have returned to the game to try it out. With a wide range of builds and item addition combinations, Riot has breathed fresh air into the LoL experience by cutting out the minion filler and simply throwing players right into the action.
The latest spin on the wildly popular MOBA lets you build your character as strong as possible as quickly as possible. Where normal Summoner’s Rift gameplay focuses on long-term strategy and map control, Arena gives you the same level of victory in the endgame of a 5v5 in half the time. All things considered, you actually have more room to practice your favorite champions in their power points than in SR.
Hello to all Arena players now that we are live! Thanks for playing!
We have a micropatch coming. This won’t solve everything, but we’re looking to hit the biggest offenders here and help out some struggling champions/classes. Additional context on thread access.1/5 pic.twitter.com/JwOpwhUvNg

That being said, there are a lot of champions in League of Legends right now (over 160!), so we’ve put together a list of the best champion duos for casual beginners looking to climb the ranks of Riot’s newest arcade game, and for those trying to make it past Silver*.
*It’s me, I’m trying hard.
Without further ado, here are the hardest champion compositions to beat in Arena for 13.14.
Best duets for the Arena
Teemo + Shaco
Fair disclaimer: using this computer may challenge your basic human decency.
Start your mid-game plague with Teemo & Shaco, an Arena PC that’s guaranteed to have the other 3 pairs in the lobby clock where they stomp. Imagine trapping the center of the map with dozens of Mushrooms and Jack-in-the-Boxes, watching the enemy team’s HP drain from poison-induced panic as the circle slowly closes.
This particularly fiendish duo absolutely kills it on the Shurima/Noxus maps. What’s more, Game Mode’s nearly broken Augments for Haste and Ability Power can increase a mage’s kill potential to 11 (sometimes without you even having to lift a finger), so make the most of this fun Arena Complication before the developers finally reign!
Taric + Warwick
A durable powerhouse (and a personal favorite).
Due to the recent nerf to Taric’s defense in the latest Arena micropatch, the Yi+Taric combo has become less effective. That’s why we’re now matching Shield of Valoran against one of League’s top guys, Warwick!
This bit of an abomination against nature and all things holy can fear nearby enemies, disable a single prio champion, and then shred said target by regaining a massive amount of HP through its Eternal Hunger passive. All of these abilities already make Wrath of Zaun very self-sufficient, but throw in shield and heal spam from a Taric, and you have a near-invincible wolf-killing machine.
Sett + Vayne
Next, we have the hardest champion to kill coupled with what is probably the most dangerous ADC in Arena right now.
Vayne’s insane AD output can be absolutely broken when you get the perfect set of boosts. Additionally, her stun and invisibility make her a strong choice for any winning composition. Run her with Kraken Slayer and Ginsoo’s to maximize her crit potential early on by relying on Sett’s Facebreaker and Showstopper for peel.
Keep in mind that this build will require smart positioning, as you’ll be required to kite high impact tanks almost every matchup. That said, always opt for skill power and increased mobility on Vayne, and definitely try to stop this PC at the highest levels of the game.
Clean + diligent
Extremely fun to play as, and incredibly frustrating to play against.
The synergy between Rengar and Ivern allows the duo to advance the former’s passive in order to quickly build stacks. As a result, this allows Rengar to perform at his full damage potential for almost the entire game (his boosted W also acts as a cleanup). That said, this team is powerful, although it depends a lot on the amount of bushes on the map.
Both Rengar and Ivern possess skills that excel in outdoor combat. Tigerseed is a strong buff that synergizes well with Rengar’s playstyle and slows down nearby prey, while Daisy’s splash damage can fade enemies before Rengar can ult. It also doesn’t hurt that they both have good crowd control skills in case the other gets into trouble.
Kog’Maw + Lulu
Rounding out our list is an el Classico tandem.
The botside duo of Kog’Maw & Lulu focuses on pokes, polymorph and slow, all of which are very dangerous inside the Arena. Additionally, armor melts and the extra magic damage from Lulu’s pixie barely touches what Pog’Maw can do under the right circumstances.
First, his Q removes enemy magic resistance, making Lulu’s disables more effective. Next, Kog’s W is the perfect ADC ability to use against pesky AP tanks like Nasus or Mordekaiser. And on top of that, the empty mouth ult deals more damage when your opponents are low on health. And that’s not even mentioning how Kog’Maw can end up with a lot of enemies even after he dies.
Overall, the League Arena meta is still evolving after its first day out of PBE, and we look forward to seeing future updates to what everyone says is the most fun they’ve had in a Riot MOBA in a very long time.
