Dragons are champions that are either dragon-like or have some reference to dragons in general. The Dragon synergy blocks a large portion of magic damage. This is good against traits that rely on magic damage to win, like Sorcerer Sorcerer and Elementalist Elementalist.

  • Knights Knights are a great synergy to use with Dragons. Since the blocked damage comes after the magic resistance that dragons have, it allows dragons to ignore even more magic damage.
  • Guardians Guardians are also a great companion to Dragons. Guardians can cover the innate weakness that dragons have to basic attacks with their synergy. And since Pantheon Pantheon is a guardian already, so only one more guardian is required.


  • Since Thornmail Thornmail returns the damage as magic damage, Dragons can stack attack damage safely without having to worry too much about Thornmail.
  • Since the synergy already blocks a large portion of magic damage, the items that Dragons want either focus on dealing damage or reducing physical damage.
  • Healing items like Warmog's Armor Warmog's Armor and Bloodthirster Bloodthirster are great compliments to the Dragon's synergy.


  • High damaging basic attacks are a necessity when taking down Dragons, like Assassins Assassins, Blademasters Blademasters, and Gunslingers Gunslingers.
  • The Void Void synergy renders the Dragon synergy useless. This is also true for champions that deal true damage, like Vayne Vayne and Ahri Ahri.
  • Giant Slayer Giant Slayer is a good item to have in order to slay the Dragons if high attack damage champions aren't on the team.
  • Defensive team compositions tend to like healing items, so Grievous Wounds icon.png Grievous Wounds is a welcome addition when facing Dragons.
