League-of-legends – What are the deciding factors for a solo top champion


I know that there are some champions who are better solo-top than others, such as Shen because he can heal himself and he has good survivability, but what else decides if a champion is primed for solo top? I have seen other champs such as Teemo or Talon do really well in this lane, but I still don't understand the decision.

You need Lifesteal. A "getaway" technique, for example Talon, can easily use his E or even his ult to dash away. Teemo can also use his speed.
