Over the past few years, Ashe’s role in LoL has slowly transitioned from an ADC to a support. What started as an off-meta support pick now it’s a strong support pick that often carries games. But in order to carry games with Ashe, you need the right ADC partner.

So, which ADCs go well with Ashe support?

When you play Ashe support, you actually have the best synergy with bot lane mages. Champs like Karthus and Ziggs really benefit from Ashe’s slow when it comes to hitting skill shots and dealing damage. However, Ashe also synergizes a lot with one-shotting ADCs such as Varus or Miss Fortune.

In reality, Ashe support can work with any marksman in League of Legends. However, there are a few champions that can really use Ashe’s kit to dominate their opponents.

In this post, I’ll focus on the 7 best bot lane picks you can play with Ashe support based on the amount of synergy they have and the overall high win rates across all servers and elos. I’ll explain their strengths and weaknesses so you can choose the right ADC for you.

Let’s start!

The 7 Best ADCs for Ashe in LoL

7. Caitlyn


No matter the patch, meta, or matchup, Caitlyn is one of the strongest ADCs early on in League of Legends. She has a dominating laning phase and is simply amazing at poking the opposing laners.

This plays very well for Ashe because as a support she’s also looking to do the same. Ashe and Caitlyn can effectively drive any duo out of the bot lane and gain advantages in experience during the early game.

On the other hand, the poke playstyle opens up way more kill opportunities. If the enemy bot laners don’t respect Ashe’s and Caitlyn’s damage, they can easily get slain whenever they’re below 50% HP.

Once Caitlyn and Ashe get to level 6, their real synergy begins. The best way to set up fights with these champions is for Ashe to ulti first. When Enchanted Crystal Arrow hits the enemy ADC, Caitlyn can immediately place traps beneath and annihilate them with damage.

If the primary target manages to survive, Caitlyn always has her R – Ace in the Hole to finish the job. And with Ashe’s constant slow (thanks to her low cooldown), the enemy won’t get anywhere.

Because of this synergy, Ashe and Caitlyn always have an advantage because they can start fights whenever they want. They don’t need to take force fights but if things escalate, their disengage is great too. With Ashe’s R and W, she and Cait can always get to safety.

6. Seraphine


Seraphine has been an off-meta ADC in League of Legends since she was first added to the game. Her kit is very supportive but it does offer a few advantages that a lot of marksmen don’t.

First of all, one of Seraphine’s strongest points is survivability. Unlike the squishy ADCs, Seraphine has a large AoE shield and heal for herself and all of her allies. The cooldown isn’t short, but the spell is powerful enough to make up for it.

Next, Seraphine is a master of AoE crowd control. Her E can either slow or root all enemy champions it passes through. But in combination with Ashe’s slow, Beat Drop is guaranteed to root or stun the enemy champions. You can read Seraphine’s passive here.

Moreover, Seraphine her ultimate ability is Encore, a large wave that charms all enemies in its path. The spell extends itself based on the number of champions it passes through. And in a team fight, Encore can completely break the opposing team.

What’s cool about playing Seraphine and Ashe in the bot lane is that you can synergize their ultimates for amazing effects. For example, since Ashe’s R travels faster, she can be the one starting the fight. Seraphine can follow it up with her R and affect even multiple enemies.

This synergy is a huge reason for Ashe’s and Seraphine’s success as a duo and their win rate in the bot lane. You can sometimes see them on the professional scene together in a team comp that needs peeling and crowd control.

Lastly, both Seraphine and Ashe can opt for damage-oriented builds. Seraphine’s full ap build can be pretty scary while Ashe’s lethality build is great for a supportive playstyle.

5. Ziggs


As I mentioned above, Ziggs is one of the champions that benefits the most from Ashe’s kit. Normally, the champion is difficult to succeed with, especially in higher elos. But because Ashe has so much crowd control and extra damage, carrying with Ziggs actually becomes easy.

Ziggs is an artillery mage with a few specific strengths in his playstyle. For starters, he’s great at wave clearing, pushing, and taking down turrets. So, if you play aggressively early on and keep poking the enemy team, you’re going to take their turret insanely fast.

Besides that, all of Ziggs’s abilities are AoE magic damage dealers. The champion can obliterate squishy champions from a far and poke down even the tankiest of tanks in LoL

Ziggs’ long-range playstyle is simply amazing when it comes to sieging or securing objectives. Not only can he block the path for the enemy jungler, but he can also push them away, and even steal the Dragon or the Baron with his ultimate – Mega Inferno Bomb.

When it comes to team fights, the perfect way to synergize Ashe and Ziggs is to start it all with Enchanted Crystal Arrow. Once an enemy is stunned, Ziggs can quickly drop all of his bombs on them and assassinate them. 

The same can be done in the bot lane for the 2v2 fights. Each time Ashe’s R is ready for use the duo should go for a kill on the enemy ADC or support, depending on who is squishier. 

As for items, there aren’t many that help Ziggs and Ashe in a special way. Of course, Ziggs should almost always go for Liandry’s Anguish since it’s a great anti-tank item. And Ashe can opt for Imperial Mandate since it will boost Ziggs damage.

4. Jhin


When Ashe was slowly transitioning into the support role, Jhin players were welcoming her with open hands. These two champions have a fantastic level of synergy and the potential to always carry games by themselves.

The most obvious synergy between them is in their W spells. Since Ashe’s Volley is hard to miss, it always marks up the enemy champions for Jhin’s Deadly Flourish. This can be an effective way to set up a kill in the bot lane and synergize the rest of their spells.

For example, if Ashe slows down an enemy and Jhin roots them, Ashe can immediately follow it with her R. Jhin can use the extended crowd control to deal damage but also activate his own ultimate and start blasting.

Once Curtain Call is activated, Ashe can keep the fleeing enemies slowed so that Jhin can aim his 4 shots. The slow can be incredibly helpful and it always boosts the value of Jhin’s R.

One thing that this duo struggles with is survivability. Since none of them have shields, heals, or mobility spells, it can be easy for the enemy team to punish them early on. Ashe and Jhin do have tools for disengage, but it’s recommended for them to play the laning phase carefully.

Here, I’d also advise you to go for Imperial Mandate on Ashe since it definitely helps Jhin too. On the other hand, Jhin should always have Galeforce to make for not having defensive spells.

3. Karthus


Karthus is the best mage you can play in a combination with Ashe support. This champion has an insane amount of damage in the late game and often carries games despite feeding or inting.

What Karthus offers is damage and insurance for the late game. No matter how the laning phase is going, Ashe can always hope on Karthus to carry the late game. This is due to Karthus’ fantastic scaling and high AP ratio on his ultimate – Requiem.

Unlike most picks on this list, Karthus doesn’t necessarily want an Ashe support for her ultimate. Instead, the real value for him lies in Ashe’s ability to keep enemies slowed all the time.

The reason for this is Karthus’ Q – Lay Waste. It’s his primary way of dealing damage but the spell can be really hard to aim. It has a low cooldown but its area on the ground is pretty small. Not to mention that it has a delay of 0.25 seconds.

In any case, once Ashe slows down an enemy, Karthus can repeatedly cast Q on top of them without missing. Lay Waste can obliterate a single target with three or four casts, especially a squishy ADC.

Additionally, Ashe can keep enemies slowed so that Karthus could get in range for his E. It’s another high damage ability that Karthus can advantage of against slowed enemies. And even if he dies, the spell continues to drain the HP of all slowed enemies around him.

The great thing here is that Karthus and Ashe can synchronize their ultimates to help out teammates around Summoner’s Rift without even moving away from the bot lane. These two global ultimates work well together, so make sure you abuse them.

2. Miss Fortune

Miss Fortune

Back in the day when Ashe was still one of the greatest ADCs in League of Legends, even pro players sometimes played Miss Fortune as her support. And the chemistry between them has always been amazing!

MF and Ashe have a very similar playstyle when they’re together. During the laning phase, both champions are looking to poke the enemy team while staying safe. And with their combined slow effects, they can torment the opposing duo.

But the true synergy between these two champions begins at level 6. When Ashe hits an enemy champion with Enchanted Crystal Arrow, Miss Fortune can immediately activate her Bullet Time. The combined damage of these abilities is enough to slay most champions in LoL, especially squishy ADCs.

The great thing about this combo is that it can work even if MF and Ashe failed during the early game. Miss Fortune’s R does a lot of damage regardless of her items. And if her targets are stunned and slowed, she’s bound to pick up a few kills with Bullet Time.

Obviously, Miss Fortune and Ashe work just as well in team fights as they do in the 2v2 bot lane skirmishes. Both champions are effective and super useful to their teams.

Lastly, I simply want to mention how fun playing Ashe and MF together can be. You can even go for a full AP Miss Fortune build and a full AP Ashe build and annoy the enemy team with Arcane Comet and burn effects. Here’s a YouTube video to see what that looks like.

1. Varus


And finally, we have Varus – the best ADC you can play with Ashe support. Varus’s kit synergizes very well with Ashe’s and he’s a good pick for all possible matchups.

First of all, there are a couple of different ways to build and play Varus. Besides the traditional ADC build and playstyle, you can always go for lethality Varus and orient yourself more around poking.

However, the best build for Varus in combination with Ashe is full AP Varus. As an AP carry, Varus can always one-shot a target, no matter whether that’s a squishy ADC or a tanky top laner.

And the great thing about Ashe is that she can assist Varus in assassinating enemies from range with both her slow and stun. For example, when Ashe hits an enemy with her Enchanted Crystal Arrow, Varus can immediately cast his Chain of Corruption and release his W + Q combo. 

But this can also go the other way around. Varus can be the one initiating the fight with his R with Ashe following it up with her own R.

On the other hand, Ashe’s slow makes it easy for Varus to apply 3 stacks of Blight with auto-attacking and aim his arrows. It’s another way of dealing huge amounts of damage, so the duo is always ready to fight back.

What I enjoy a lot about Varus and Ashe is that you don’t even need to take fights you don’t want to have. Instead, you can always assassinate one target if you combine the ultimates and win off of that.

So, I really recommend playing Varus and Ashe in the bot lane!


Ashe definitely has a unique playstyle as a support. With her, it’s all about a kill setup. And when she has a bot lane partner that also plays for the same, the results are really amazing.

The 7 bot laners I picked on this list are perfect for taking advantage of Ashe’s kit. All of them have high win ratios even in high elo, so don’t hesitate to try them out. And if you’re interested, here are the best supports for Ashe ADC.

Good luck and have fun!
