- Shaco
- Katarina
- Pantheon
- Jax... but it was just too easy at the time, pre-nerfs... you go 23-1-20 EASY unless you happen to run into a pre-made
(by comparison, I sucked 99% of the time with Pantheon if the game went past 20 minutes and we didn't have a meaningful advantage by then)

And Kassadin was VERY fun to play (though Ashe was my best, I even got several kudos from the Riot staff/forum admins I bumped in here and there).


Now, like I said, I went back to DotA (the not being able to play every hero, "grinding" for them, the silly no-denying concept, etc. was very unappealing from the start for me), but that said, it is definitely great fun once you get into it.

One thing I don't know is if Riot implemented a replay system since I stopped playing, and if there's anywhere I can find some high-end competitive replays to watch (and maybe get my interest going again).
I'm not sure about replays, but Riot is ALWAYS streaming competitive tournaments and high ELO ranked with the best players in the world on their main site, with running commentary, stats and interviews. It's a helluva lot of fun, and the new Spectator mode is really quite awesome. It teaches you a lot too, watching guys like HotshotGG and Elementz speedbag other high ranked players like they don't know the game.
