I ranked every champion based on how well their kits let them use Prototype: Omnistone.

Content of the article: "I ranked every champion based on how well their kits let them use Prototype: Omnistone."



Hello! So recently as a personal challenge, I decided to try and climb as far as possible using only Prototype: Omnistone, on any champion I pick, but before I started doing that, I wanted to rank a personal tier list of who can use Omnistone the best. This would help limit my choices to champions that could serviceably use the keystone.

Note: These aren't definitive, and arguments can be made on behalf of certain champion placements. This is just my personal opinion. These also do not consider individual champion matchups, just how well each champion's kit can utilize Omnistone. If you're gonna run into SoloQ with these champions and Omnistone, practice it in normals to get a feel for it. This is an ASTRONOMICALLY LARGE POST, I WILL NOT DETAIL EVERY S-TIER PICK HERE, ASK ME FOR SPECIFICS.

TL;DR: Look at the tierlist below, or use this link, I'll include some in-depth explanations for how I reached each conclusion, but if you want to know about any S, A, B, or C-tier placements, just ask and I'll tell you. If you want to know a specific champion's point distribution, ask me! If you want build suggestions as well, let me know!

Rundown of the Tier List

  • S-tier champions have kits that can maximize the effectiveness of nearly every keystone, with only a few that are sub-optimal, and with no more than 1 or 2 useless keystones. Omnistone can be considered one of their best choices,
  • A-tier champions have kits that can either use every keystone moderately well, or can use most keystones well, with a few sub-optimal/useless keystone choices. Omnistone is a good choice most of the time, only bad in counter matchups.
  • B-tier champions are much more limited on keystone choices, either based on their kits limiting the effectiveness of auto attacks (Azir's soldiers), or due to have a weak rotation that scales poorly with multiple keystones (Brand, Blitzcrank). Omnistone is only a choice when the matchup and game state allow it.
  • C-tier champions generally can only use at max 2 or 3 keystones effectively from Omnistone (they tend to be primarily melee engage/peel supports). Their kits are either too hard locked on defensive aspects (Braum), or leave themselves with nothing after blowing an initial rotation (Alistar). These champions should avoid Omnistone.
  • Bannable-offense tier exists only for Yuumi. I'm serious, I'm tried it. You wanna get banned? Go Omnistone Yuumi. You'll be about as useful as a wooden support beam made of termite infested, rotten wood. You probably would be more useful hopping into discord with your AD duo, whispering sweet nothings about in their ear, while you convince them to play 4v5 because uwu they have a big bulgie wulgie you'd like to *glomps* on. Do not play Omnistone Yuumi.

Points distribution:

Points were assigned based on one of three factors:

Keystone is extremely easy to proc and the champion can get high effectiveness out of it: 1 point
Keystone is at least usable, but isn't the best in every situation, or in every build scenario. 0.5 points
Keystone is usable, but useless on the champion, or the keystone is unusable. 0 points

In addition, champions could receive anywhere from 0-3 points depending on how versatile their keystone options can be. If a champion can take a keystone in specific scenarios, and see good success with it, this boosts this score.

For example: Alistar can realistically only take Aftershock and Guardian, as he doesn't have a kit that supports the use of any other keystone. He earns 0 points in keystone versatility. Bard, conversely, could probably go into a game with no keystone, and still find large amounts of success, so he gets 3 points in keystone versatility.

Breakdowns for the some S-tier champions

Aatrox

12 points from keystones, and 2 points from keystone versatility, total of 14 points.

  • Press The Attack: 0.5 Points
  • Lethal Tempo: 0 Points
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 Point
  • Conqueror: 1 point
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Predator: 0.5 points
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Hail of Blades: 0.5 points
  • Summon Aery: 0.5 points
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Phase Rush: 1 point
  • Grasp of The Undying: 1 point
  • Aftershock: 1 point
  • Glacial Augment: 1 point

Aatrox, throughout the course of his rework, has utilized Fleet Footwork, Conqueror, Electrocute, Dark Harvest, Grasp of The Undying, Arcane Comet, and Phase Rush, either as meta or fringe Keystones that he can proc and utilize quite efficiently. Press the Attack is only usable if you know how to animation cancel on Aatrox, and Hail of Blades can be nice to bring your passive up quickly in the early game. Summon Aery does about as much damage as Scorch in the early game, and Glacial Augment does nothing, as you need to land sweetspots on Aatrox, and Lethal Tempo is too much AS for too long to be good on Aatrox. Solidly an S-tier pick with Omnistone. Any rune path secondary is good with Aatrox, as it depends solely on your build. Default to Sorcery/Domination if unsure. I have a whole Omnistone Aatrox guide in the works, so look forward to that if you're interested.

Bard;

11.5 points from keystones, 3 points for keystone reliance, 14.5 points total.

  • Glacial Augment: 1 point
  • Aftershock: 1 point
  • Grasp of The Undying: 0.5 points
  • Phase Rush: 1 point
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Summon Aery: 1 point
  • Hail of Blades: 1 point
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Predator: 0.5 points
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Conqueror: 0.5 points
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 point
  • Press The Attack: 0.5 points
  • Lethal Tempo: 0.5 points

Bard is insanely good at using keystones, and since players already use Prototype: Omnistone with him, it’s no surprise he’s an S-tier pick. His worst keystones are Grasp, Predator, Conqueror, Press The Attack, and Lethal Tempo, and even those have niche uses thanks to his passive and overall kit. Overall, he’s a strong choice to take Omnistone on, and if you aren’t, you might want to consider trying it. Solid S-tier pick. Take Sorcery, Domination, or Resolve secondary on Bard.

Draven;

11.5 points from keystones, 3 from keystone reliance, 14.5 points total.

  • Glacial Augment: 1 point
  • Aftershock: 0.5 points
  • Grasp of The Undying: 0.5 points
  • Phase Rush: 0.5 points
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Summon Aery: 0.5 points
  • Hail of Blades: 1 point
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Predator: 0.5 points
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Conqueror: 1 point
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 point
  • Press The Attack: 1 point
  • Lethal Tempo: 1 point

There realistically isn't any keystone that Draven can’t use. That being said, Aftershock, Grasp, and Phase Rush aren’t exactly stars of the show, as they don’t really offer much to Draven in the laning phase, and all Predator can do is help him close the gap on distant foes. Get hit with Glacial however, especially with an aggressive support, and Draven can easily run you down with axes, as there’s no escaping with a 55% slow on you. Precision, Domination, and Sorcery secondary are all good with Draven.

Gnar

12.5 points from keystones, 3 points from keystone versatility, 15.5 points total.

  • Glacial Augment: 1 point
  • Aftershock: 0.5 points
  • Grasp of The Undying: 1 point
  • Phase Rush: 1 point
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Summon Aery: 0.5 points
  • Hail of Blades: 1 point
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Predator: 0.5 points
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Conqueror: 1 point
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 point
  • Press The Attack: 1 point
  • Lethal Tempo: 0.5 points

Gnar’s kit opens him up so well to multiple keystone options, most of which are great on him. Runes like Lethal Tempo are best during Mini Gnar, while Predator and Aftershock are only usable during Mega Gnar. Asides from this, Gnar’s flexibility makes him a prime-time Omnistone user. S-tier Omnistone user, and it isn’t even close.



Jarvan IV

12.5 points with runes, 3 points from keystone versatility, 15.5 points total.

  • Glacial Augment: 0.5 points
  • Aftershock: 1 point
  • Grasp of The Undying: 1 point
  • Phase Rush: 1 point
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Summon Aery: 1 point
  • Hail of Blades: 1 point
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Predator: 1 point
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Conqueror: 1 point
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 point
  • Press The Attack: 0.5 points
  • Lethal Tempo: 0.5 points

J4 is flagging and dragging his way up to the S-tier. The Crown Prince of Demacia’s kit allows him to proc nearly every keystone with ease. Pulling Glacial Augment during a level 2 or 3 gank will always blow a flash, as the enemy cannot possibly get away otherwise. His E can proc Aery both on allies and enemies, allowing him to maximize its effectiveness, and his passive and E allow him to use every auto attack based keystone to some effectiveness. S-tier Omnistone user, give it a shot, full AD or full tank. Any secondary path is fine with Jarvan, because his builds are just as diverse as his kit.

Kindred:

12 points from keystones, 2 points for keystone versatility, 14 points total.

  • Glacial Augment: 1 point
  • Aftershock: 0 points
  • Grasp of The Undying: 0.5 point
  • Phase Rush: 1 point
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Summon Aery: 1 point
  • Hail of Blades: 1 point
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Predator: 0.5 points
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Conqueror: 1 point
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 point
  • Press The Attack: 1 point
  • Lethal Tempo: 1 point

Kindred are prowling their way into the S-tier. With their scaling range and nimble nature, it’s very easy for Kindred to close the gap and use even the most niche of keystones: Glacial Augment. Beyond that, her ultimate can trigger Summon Aery on allies, which while pointless, does have merit. All in all, the dynamic duo are strong S-tier Omnistone users. Take Sorcery, Precision, or Domination on Kindred, based on matchup.

Mordekaiser

12 points from keystones, 3 points from keystone versatility, 15 points total

  • Glacial Augment: 0.5 points
  • Aftershock: 1 point
  • Grasp of The Undying: 1 point
  • Phase Rush: 1 point
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Summon Aery: 0.5 points
  • Hail of Blades: 1 point
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Predator: 0.5 points
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Conqueror: 1 point
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 point
  • Press The Attack: 0.5 points
  • Lethal Tempo: 1 point

It’s funny, if you take someone into the Death Realm, you tend to not really struggle with keystone procs. That being said, outside of the Death Realm, Mordekaiser is dominantly an S-tier user of Omnistone. His kit is simplistic and offers everything he’d need to proc every keystone consistently and off CD. His passive’s bonus movement speed and on-hit damage make it so that he can easily proc keystones like Lethal Tempo and Hail of Blades, adding hefty chunks of damage to his profile. Take Resolve/Sorcery secondary with Mordekaiser.

Nautilus

13 points from keystones, 3 points from keystone versatility, 16 points total.

  • Glacial Augment: 1 point
  • Aftershock: 1 point
  • Grasp of The Undying: 1 point
  • Phase Rush: 1 point
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Summon Aery: 0.5 points
  • Hail of Blades: 1 point
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Predator: 1 point
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Conqueror: 0.5 points
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 point
  • Press The Attack: 1 point
  • Lethal Tempo: 1 point

Another member of the “I CC you and get to have my way with you” club, Nautilus can quite literally proc every keystone Omnistone has to offer, and he can do it without batting an eye. His W’s auto attack reset lets him make good use of all auto-attack based keystones, and his spell-weaving nature ensures that spell-based keystones all get popped easily as well. S-tier, S-tier, S tier, one of the best users of Omnistone in the game. Take Resolve/Domination secondary with Nautilus.

Neeko

13 points from keystones, 3 points from keystone versatility, 16 points total

  • Glacial Augment: 1 point
  • Aftershock: 1 point
  • Grasp of The Undying: 1 point
  • Phase Rush: 1 point
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Summon Aery: 0.5 points
  • Hail of Blades: 1 point
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Predator: 1 point
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Conqueror: 0.5 points
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 point
  • Press The Attack: 1 point
  • Lethal Tempo: 1 point

The only thing that keeps Neeko from reasonably taking Omnistone every game is the fact that the keystone still appears when she’s transformed, ruining the camouflage. Ignoring that, she’s the single best mage user of Omnistone in the game, and you should seriously consider it, ESPECIALLY with the new items. Take Sorcery secondary on Neeko.

Vi

13.5 points from keystones, 3 points for keystone versatility, 16.5 points total

  • Glacial Augment: 1 point
  • Aftershock: 1 point
  • Grasp of The Undying: 1 point
  • Phase Rush: 1 point
  • Arcane Comet: 1 point
  • Summon Aery: 0.5 points
  • Hail of Blades: 1 point
  • Dark Harvest: 1 point
  • Predator: 1 point
  • Electrocute: 1 point
  • Conqueror: 1 point
  • Fleet Footwork: 1 point
  • Press The Attack: 1 point
  • Lethal Tempo: 1 point

Alrighty everyone, let's welcome yet another member to the Empire of Nevermove, as Vi's CC and lockdown potential ensures that she can dispense of pretty much any keystone she feels like, and she can do it quite easily. Her E's auto attack reset allows her to trigger PTA and Hail of Blades extremely easily, and her hard CC procs Aftershock without much trouble. Lethal Tempo's attack speed synergizes extremely well with her W's armor shred and ramping AS passive. Overall, it's no shocker that she's S-tier, with only Aery being sub-optimal on her. Take any secondary path, Vi is extremely flexible with Omnistone. I recommend Stridebreaker into Cleaver, or Sunderer into Sanguine Blade/Blade of The Ruined King versus tankier comps.

In the interest of keeping this from being longer than Don Quixote, I'll stop listing S-tier Omnistone champs here. Please feel free to ask about breakdowns, item suggestions, or just generally list your thoughts! Have a great night!
