Usually I queue with two friends, one ALWAYS plays adc and the other plays mid 90% of the time, leaving me to support, jungle or top. I pretty much have support on lock down, and find it incredibly boring. Jungling is....a weakness of mine. I'm not very good at ganking or invading the other jungle, which is why it's a weakness of mine. I've avoided top like the plague, and I don't know why. I guess I'm just afraid that I'll feed top because of my inexperience there.
That said, I would like to get better at it, so what is your favorite solo top champ? Obviously it depends on who you are playing against top and what your team comp is, but who is your "go-to" top champ? Also, what are some tips for a novice at top? How aggressive should I be at top?
