The Most Overloaded Champion Kits In League of Legends

Champions 09-06-2024 10:30

There are some League of Legends champions who just have way too much stuff in their kits. But which ones are the most overloaded in the game?

New League of Legends champions just seem to have everything within their kit. They can heal, stun, deal AoE damage and burst opponents down, all within one single ability... But which champions are the worst when it comes to overloaded kits? 

It seems like every champion released is getting more complicated with more things in their kit. Abilities and passive abilities take a PhD to understand, almost, so it's about time to check out the worst offenders in the overloaded kit problem. 


What Does 'Overloaded Kit' Mean? 

Overloaded kit just means a champion has multiple aspects within their kit squished together. This does not mean that the champion is inherently overpowered. A champion can have a bunch of aspects – such as heals, dashes, true damage, etc – to their kit and still be manageable.

Which Champions Have The Most Overloaded Kit? 

5. Hwei

In December 2023 Riot released Hwei, who would go on to become one of the most complicated champions to date. He's got 10 total abilities, is able to do everything and anything, which has prompted many players to feel like he is one of the msot overloaded champions in the entire game right now.

Hwei's can open different spell books for different utilities and damage spells. So he's able to use his WE for free mana with ease, while clearing waves without any mana issues with his QE every few seconds. 

Not only that, but he's also got a stun, a slow and a fear in his kit, insane range thanks to his QW and his ultimate is a giant AoE damage spell. While he isn't overly strong and none of his abilities are overtuned, it's easy to see why Hwei is considered to be one of the most overloaded champions in League of Legends. 


4. Akali

Another overloaded champion we have to talk about is none other than Akali who has multiple dashes in her kit, one of which doesn't have a range limit and she's got an AoE spameable ability that slows, becomes invisible and faster.

Now, we do admit that Akali was once even worse with her overloaded kit having the ability to basically heal at all times, but she's still one of the main offenders when we think of overloaded champion kits. She's able to slow opponents with her Q, gain speed with her W and dash around with her E. 

With such a stuffed kit, it's hard for Riot to properly buff her, since a single stat change can make her completely OP in pro play. So, do you think that her kit is overloaded as well?


3. Akshan 

Akshan is one of the newest League of Legends champions and like many other new champions it feels like his kit has everything and anything in it. He's got stealth, a dash, a shield in his passive and much, much more. The release of Akshan has brought back the discussion of overloaded champions.

Seriously, most players are still confused about the W passive, which can revive fallen allies. Seriously, he also gains added move speed towards scoundrels, permanent stealth and bonus gold if he manages a takedown. Compare that to an Amumu Q guys. 

If anyone wants to pick up Akshan you'll seriously have to sit down for a good half hour to go over each and every ability, because there is so much packed into one champion right there it'll take some time. 

2. Thresh 

If we are looking at overloaded kits and supports, then Thresh is probably the champion you're going to find. He's got insane scaling power thanks to his passive, and his abilities only make him so much stronger in the long run. Oh, and just how much you can do with him is truly insane and any good Thresh player should be feared in solo queue.

Thresh can use his Q as both an engage and disengage tool, which is still pretty tame. Combining his Q with his E means that no enemy can escape him and his lane partner. His lantern can also be used as a shield, an aid for immobile champion or an escape tool for fights. Seriously, the only thing Thresh is missing is a heal. 

Thresh might not seem overpowered, but his kit does have a lot to it. Sure, it's much more intuitive than other overloaded kits in this list, but he is one of the champions that you can do the most with. The insane Armor and AP scaling is also great for the late game. 

1. Yone 

Yone is probably one of the most overloaded champions in all of League of Legends. He's got the finesse and mobility of an assassin and the strength and fighting power of a skirmisher. With those qualities, he's got to have an overloaded kit, right?

You can't talk about overloaded kits and not mention Yone, right? Not only does he deal both magic and attack damage, but he's also got on-hit and on-attack effects in his kit. Did you think that's where it ends, though? Not at all. He's got multiple dashes in his kit, a shield and reliable knock-ups and AoE damage. 

That's a mouthful, eh? Seriously, if you're looking for a champion that can do everything, then just pick Yone. If he needs some lifesteal then just build Shieldbow and then Yone truly has everything in his kit. 

There are multiple champions in League of Legends that do a thousand things. These are some of the champions with the most overloaded kits, but as mentioned, this doesn't mean that they're generally OP. Just very hard to balance.
