Default What League of Legends champs should I buy?

Alright, so I can never stick with one LoL champ for very long before wanting to play another. But now I don't know who to play? and I'm also impatient and don't want to wait until the next rotation of free champs .

I have 1122rp and 1352ip to spend. So I could probably get 2 decent champs.

The only role I don't want is support, because I don't like being responsible for other people

Here is a list of the champs I currently own.

Ezreal
Hecarim (Bought him when he was on sale, don't like him much :/)
Lee Sin
Master Yi
Pantheon
Rengar
Shaco
Twisted Fate
Varus
Vayne
Vi

Although I'm also thinking of buying Arclight Varus skin.

Try Veigar or Annie, a burst caster should be something new for you.

Fiora. My God, she is amazing. I build her tanky just for lols, but any solo lane I tend to win with her (even 2 vs 1 is ok). She is a bit fragile with the standard build, but packs a nasty punch on anyone who gets too close.

Or perhaps you want another mid-laner? I prefer either Malzahar or Veigar personally, but I don't really play there often.

And then there are the troll/banned champs if you don't exclusively play Ranked. So Shen, Amumu, Blitzcrank, Teemo. I have Shen and absolutely love playing him, and Amumu's really nasty when built tank. Blitz and Teemo annoy the shit out of me, but are hilarious to play.

Also, brofist for Pantheon. You better play him Mantheon build, or we'll be having words...

Get Karthus, but know this. From that point, it's all downhill from there in the 'pissing off the enemy team' stakes.

And never build Archangels on Karthus. Ever. You shouldn't ever need it.

I've been playing her while she has been free and she is a real contender for me to buy, she can absolutely destroy, only problem is she has no decent escape :/

I bought him because I'd read he was really good, it was after I bought him that I realised the threads I was reading were from before he had a massive nerf. Not sure how good he is at the moment.

It's true, Fiora doesn't really have an escape. Except her E, which can give you a decent speed boost to get away if you use it in the right way. Oh and never flash to chase people with her, because you'll inevitably need it again ten seconds later when the rest of their team rock up. You can also lunge to enemy minions if they're in the direction you're running to.

Also, yes Pantheon has taken a hit and sorta falls off a bit late game. I like playing him mostly for fun with his ulty, but played right he can hold his own against other champions, it just takes a bit more effort than using someone say like Darius.

I play Ahri a lot. I don't spec her like most people though.

I go deep into Utility, pick up lifesteal/spellvamp 3%. 2 wards 9 pots start - usually 4 mana 5 health and out sustain whoever I lane against. (number 11 - http://www.lolking.net/summoner/euw/21198266#masteries)

Stuck in bronze 1 at the moment though, I bought this account a few days back, got trolled in placements and ended up Bronze 3. Rising pretty fast though so I'll be back up to Silver 3 where my elo lies.

Akali is good for stomping noobs too, but it definitely looks like you need a few mid casters.

Kassadin has been free this week and seems rather good, he's not a Mid caster, but he's still mid viable. Although I think an animation update is needed for him. I ended up buying Fiora with the RP but I still have IP to spend, but at this point, I think it may be saved up for Kassadin.

Some mid caster suggestions:

Annie
Ryze
Ziggs
Zyra
Morgana
Lux
Brand
Avania

There all pretty solid for mid. I like Lux in the mix, as she can play support and AP mid with equal ability.

Step 1) Pick Swain.
Step 2) Buy Chalice and several Catalysts
Step 3) Turn Chalice into Grail and Catalysts into RoAs
Step 4) Press R and walk around.

Congratulations. You are now winning every game you play.
