Since the first release of the game.
The support role has been effective and important for helping the team for winning.
Supports are not all the same, we want to focus on the healers.
Those are the champions who give extra health for their teammates through the game.
Here we will review the top 10 best healers in League of Legends.
Rakan is considered one of the most effective supports in team fights, but his healing powers aren’t that big.
Rakan’s healing ability is his Q (Gleaming Quill): Rakan slings an enchanted feather forward, dealing magic damage to the first enemy hit.
If that enemy was a champion or epic monster, an area is marked around Rakan.
After 3 seconds or if an ally champion comes within the marked area, Rakan heals himself and surrounding allies.
The shield of valoran “Taric” is considered one of the best supports on the rift because of his heals and shields, but what makes him weak that his healing ability consumes a lot of mana.
Taric’s healing ability is his Q (Starlight’s Touch): ACTIVE: Taric heals himself and all nearby allied champions for 30 (+ 20% AP) (+ 1% of Taric’s maximum health) per stored charge at the time of cast.
The bestial huntress “Nidalee” is known for only being a jungler, what makes her on this list is that she has a good healing ability that helps allies all over the map.
Nidalee’s Healing ability is her E (Primal Surge): ACTIVE: Nidalee evokes the spirit of the cougar, healing the target allied champion or herself, increased by 0% − 100% (based on target’s missing health), and granting them bonus attack speed for 7 seconds.
Alistar is one of the best CC tanky supports, but as a healer he just heals for a small amount of health.
Alistar’s healing ability is his passive (Triumphant Roar): INNATE: Alistar gains a stack of Triumph every time he stuns or Airborne icon displaces at least one enemy champion, and every time a minion, a small monster or a pet dies.
At 7 Triumph stacks, Alistar roars, healing himself for 20 − 139 (based on level) health and all nearby allied champions for double the amount.
Bard is considered a high elo support champion.
He comes in the middle of the healers’ list because he doesn’t have a fast healing ability.
You need to wait for his shrine to build up first to get a good amount of healing!
Bard’s healing ability is his W (Caretaker’s Shrine): ACTIVE: Bard conjures a shrine at the target location that builds up in power over 10 seconds, up to 3 shrines active at once, which remain until consumed when a champion steps on them.
If the champion was an ally or Bard himself, they are healed for an amount based on the shrine’s power and gain a 50% bonus movement speed that decays over 1.5 seconds.
Janna is one of those ardent supports who has great abilities to save her ADC.
Janna’s healing ability is her ultimate (Monsoon): ACTIVE: Janna channels for 3 seconds, knocking back all nearby enemies up to 875 units based on their proximity to her, while stunning them for 0.5 seconds.
While channeling, she releases soothing winds that heal nearby allies every half-second.
Janna can use her ultimate for outplaying enemies, not just for healing allies.
Sona is a great poking champ in the laning phase.
However, she is too weak and squishy and can die easily in all-ins.
She has good healing abilities but she consumes a lot of mana.
Sona’s healing ability is W (Aria of Perseverance): ACTIVE: Sona heals herself and the most wounded nearby allied champion.
League of Legends has recently released a new champion “Yuumi”, the magical cat has proved a great ability to save allies.
She has her unique style in mounting the designated ally.
The strongest power of Yuumi that while she is attached to an ally, she becomes untargetable.
Yummi’s healing ability is her E (Zoomies): ACTIVE: Yuumi heals herself, with the base amount increased by 0% − 130% (based on target’s missing health) and the scaling amount increased by 0% − 300% (based on target’s missing health), and gains 25% (+ 10% per 100 AP) movement speed decaying over 2 seconds.
While attached, the Anchor is targeted by the ability instead.
In the second place comes Nami.
Nami is considered one of the best healers ever in League of Legends.
She has a double-edged weapon that can heal allies and damage enemies with.
Nami’s healing ability is her W (Ebb and Flow): heals allies and deals magic damage to enemies, with each bounce being 85% (+ 7.5% per 100 AP) as effective as the previous one.
In the first place comes Soraka, which is known among League of Legends players as the “healing machine”.
Soraka has 2 ways of healing, her W for a single target and her ultimate for all allies.
Soraka’s healing abilities: 1- Her W (Astral infusion): ACTIVE: Soraka heals the target ally champion for a portion of her HP.
2- Her R (Wish): ACTIVE: Soraka calls upon the stars, healing all allied champions, including Playful untargetable allies, and herself, which is increased by 50% on targets below 40% of their maximum health.
We all know that the support role has a strong impact on the game, especially healers.
They can save their allies from being assassinated by a “Talon” or “Zed” player. They can easily carry the whole game on their own!
In higher elos, most of the team depends on the support.
The support duties are: putting wards in the whole map, healing, shielding and more.
There is an item called “Redemption”, the support can buy this item to give immediate healing to allies without even having a healing ability!

Pick your best healer, go to the rift, carry your teammates and climb the solo queue ladder!
