League of Legends Best Dragon Soul - Which Is Best?

League of Legends Best Dragon Soul
Dragons so kawaiii.

Hello, dragons are pretty cool, right? Well, today I’ll be writing about dragons and how their souls can be harvested and used for your benefit. Have you ever wondered why some junglers don’t take certain dragons and let the enemy have it or why sometimes they even die just to get a certain buff from a certain powerful dragon.

Well worry not as today I will try to describe to you why they do it and why you should always help out your jungler get specific dragon souls. Also, each of these dragons has a standard buff and a dragon soul. The dragon soul is the juicy part and I’ll describe what each soul does and how they change the map depending on which dragon soul is currently active.  

5. Cloud Soul

Air makes you go fast brrrr.

Our first soul comes from the cloud drake and it’s the worst one on this list. Most junglers who are smart enough will not die for this drake and will either give it to the enemy team or try to get it if it’s safe enough.

The reason for that is because this drake is the toughest one out of his brothers and sisters and will take the longest amount of time to kill. If I’m playing bot lane and this drake is up for taking most of the time I won’t even move an inch towards it to help out the team.

The standard buff is that he gives ability haste that only counts towards your ultimate cooldown but the cloud soul gives you a huge movement speed boost when you use your ultimate ability. As for the map changes, this guy spawns wind zones and extra vision plants across the map. All in all this guy is bland and boring as a basic white girl in the USA. 

What Cloud Soul Excels In: 

  • Gives ability haste but only towards your ultimate ability. Good for people who have a long cooldown timer. 
  • Spawns wind zones that can help you outrun the opponent chasing you. 
  • Spawns extra vision plants that can be helpful if used properly and correctly. 
  • Cloud soul gives a huge movement speed buff when you use your ultimate ability which can be good with ADC’s that need to kite a lot. 

Cloud soul details:

  • The toughest drake on this list 
  • Ability haste (only counts towards your ultimate ability) 
  • Cloud soul expires after 6 seconds once you used your ultimate ability
  • Every time someone decides to kill this dragon it grants a stack of “Cloudbringer’s Grace” 

4. Mountain Soul

The terrain cucks you more than your wife.

The next soul coming right up is the mountain soul forcefully taken straight from the mountain dragon. This guy is a huge pain to deal with especially if your opponent gets the soul buff. Now dear reader if you’re asking yourself why is that?

Well, let me explain to you quickly. Upon killing this drake your team gets extra armor and magic resistance and upon getting the soul from this drake your team will gain an extra shield.

This is the best defensive dragon as it makes you harder to kill especially in the late game once tanks are at their full build potential. As for the map changes this guy just brings a few stone walls around the map which can cuck you from getting a kill most of the time. 

What Mountain Soul Excels In:

  • Gives the team that killed it armor and magic resistance 
  • Tanky champions benefit a lot from this drake 
  • Potentially cucks the enemy team from one-shotting you

Mountain Soul Details:

  • Gives 6/12/18/24% armor and magic resistance 
  • Upon getting the soul the team is granted a 200 defensive shield 
  • Spawns extra walls around the map that can be used to juke the enemy or cuck you from getting a kill.
  • Each mountain dragon slain grants a stack of “Mountainous Vigor”

3. Ocean Soul

Makes the map pweety.

For our number three, we have the ocean soul. This soul is really good during the laning phase but once that’s over this drake falls off until you get his soul.

The standard buff restores 2.5% of missing health every 10 seconds but once you have the ocean soul it can restore up to 160 HP per auto-attack and give you a massive AD and AP buff. Is it worth sacrificing your poor life to take the soul of this drake?

Yes, it damn is and you better not let your enemy get this drake soul. You shall fight with all your might to get this into your hand because if the enemy does it’s not going to be a fun time for you buddy. As for the map changes, they’re the coolest in the game as it makes the summoners rift spring up with life spawning extra bushes and honey fruits, and to top it all off it even rains! Rain in any video game is the coolest thing ever try to change my mind you can’t! 

What Ocean Soul Excels In:

  • Sustaining you during the laning phase 
  • Spawning extra honey fruits and bushes around the map which can give you a huge advantage on your enemies if you can use it correctly. 
  • Adds rain into the game which changes the whole atmosphere! 

Ocean Soul Details:

  • Restores 2.5/5/7.5/10% of your missing health every 10 seconds.
  • Heals you for 160 when damaging an enemy champion and restoring 80 mana.
  • It’s one of the valuable souls in the game 
  • Each ocean drake killed grants a stack of “Oceanic Will”

2. Infernal Soul

Burn baby burn!

For our number two spot, we have the daddy of all dragons and his name is infernal drake. This is one of my favorite drakes in the whole game as it gives you exactly what every champion needs. An AD and AP buff!

Doesn’t matter if you’re playing Yuumi you’re going to be benefiting from this drake. Not to mention that it adds the best changes to the summoner’s rift by burning bushes and tearing down walls making the map way better and more efficient as well as adding extra blast cones.

As for the standard buff, the infernal dragon gives you bonus AD or AP as I mentioned but for the soul this bad boy makes your auto-attacks explode giving you AoE damage. The explosion looks cool btw! 

What Infernal Soul Excels In:

  • Everyone in your team will benefit from this soul. 
  • Could win you the game alone and turn the tides of battle if you were on the losing side 
  • AoE explosion damage
  • Cool guys don’t look at explosions!

Infernal Soul Details:

  • Huge damage amplifier 
  • Removes walls and burns down bushes.
  • Each infernal drake murdered in cold blood grants a stack of “Infernal Might”
  • People will kill over this dragon’s soul no matter what the cost is. If your whole team dies getting this dragon, consider that a victory!

1. Elder Soul

The daddy of all draguns.

You thought that the infernal drake was the daddy of all drakes oh no no no how wrong we all were this guy is the granddaddy of all dragons. The sigma male of dragons named the elder dragon. Also, can we just appreciate how epic this dragon looks?

I mean dragons in any game are epic but this one especially takes the cake. The white coloring combined with the black and light blue mwah french kiss for perfection. This dragon is the deciding factor between the two teams.

Who will win and who will lose since you can’t get the standard buff you can only get the soul buff from him but that’s also why his soul buff is the most fun and exciting one in the game. The soul buff is an execute. This means every champion can potentially one shot. Yes, even supports such as Soraka and Yuumi can one-shot an enemy thanks to this dragon.

The mighty roar that sends shivers down your spine, that this dragon lets off has been made with a chicken string over a trash can.

What Elder Soul Excels In:

  • Helping the teams finally reach an end to their long match. 
  • Gives off a cool effect to the team that has it 
  • Always represented on the finals of Worlds for League of Legends 
  • Executing someone has a cool and epic sound effect 

Elder Soul Details:

  • Gives the team that has the elder soul an execute threshold
  • The buff is lost upon death 
  • The elder soul can only be obtained once the dragons above have been slain
