Introduction

When I say beginners guide, I mean I am a beginner. I have been playing for almost a month now, and this is my first build, so please be gentle. Volibear was the the first character I felt comfortable playing. I have played him as a bottom support, jungle, and solo top, jungle is by far my favorite. I usually play with a group of rl friends, I have had success with this build in our group and with pugs.

Summary

I start out killing wolves and blue with the help of mid and top/bottom, depending on side. Next I go kill red, at this point I am level 3 and go for my first gank, whichever lane has over-extended. I use Rolling Thunder to close the gap, then majestic roar to slow, wait until they are about 35% and frenzy. It usually ends up being enough with another person hitting them. If I am still decent on health I go for another gank or head back into the jungle and kill the golems, wolves, or wraiths.

Runes

I wasn't really sure what runes to get, I recently hit 20 and just bought all AS to help me get through the jungle quicker. I thought about maybe armor or regen, but the AS seemed like it would have the greatest impact for me from start to finish.

Masteries

I spent a lot of time switching between the utility tree and the defense tree. I finally settled on Utility because of the extra perks from the utility tree. The extra gold and regen in the beginning allows me to sustain longer in the jungle to start, and the starting movement speed helps.

Items

I build towards high hp and the ability to take hits late game so I can initiate in end game and live through the battle. I usually get to buy the berserker boots my first trip back, if ganking went well I get to upgrade the machete as well. I start stacking armor or MR based on the opposing team comp.

Skill Sequence

When jungling, I use Majestic Roar on CD, Rolling Thunder after fear wears off on the biggest guy, the frenzy at 35% or smite when the large monster is at 520 hp.

When ganking, I close the gap with Rolling Thunder, the Majestic Roar to slow, and finish them off with frenzy. If I don't need to close the gap quickly I Majestic Roar first and save Rolling Thunder in case they flash.

Spells

Smite is obviously a must, I have read about people liking ghost over flash. I prefer flash cause it helps to get away, really it's just your preference.

Summary

Thanks for reading this guide and please leave some feedback so I know how I am doing so far.
