Hello and welcome to Fuzzy Wuzzy ATE YOUR FAMILY!; a Volibear build guide of a different color!
I'm Gramps Tewks, and I'll be your curator as we explore the possibilities of playing with this bulky, bursty punster of a champion!
Here's Phreak's Champion Spotlight:
He highlights Volibear's skillset, playstyle and team role!

Pros / Cons
+ Sweet jungle skills.
+ Superb burst and melee damage!
+ Amazing ganks.
- Doesn't like to be kited :(
- Weak to CC
(Get Juggernaut !)
This Mastery set-up balances jungle efficiency with late-scaling power!
This Rune setup works SO well with auto-attack-based champions! Frenzy likes :D
Smite: Essential jungling skill!
(Steal Baron and Dragon for fun)
Flash: Volibear really needs the ability to Flash; it compliments Rolling Thunder quite well!
- Chosen of the Storm: Last-ditch Health Regen!
It's a free Heal-bait, switch, and kill!
Don't rely on it, but it'll save your life many-a-time.
- Rolling Thunder (Q): Hear my cry!
Rammus-style initiation and chasing... and you've seen what that guy can do.
- Frenzy (W): Not to be confused with the Transformer.
Frenzy is Jax's Ultimate ( Relentless Assault), but MUCH BETTER.
This DEVASTATES people!
- Majestic Roar (E): Wake up in the mornin', feelin' like dat Aslan..
Great for jungling and ganking!
- Thunder Claws (R): Not to be confused with ThunderCats.
Save it for teamfights and massive farming!
+ philosopher's stone +
: The new jungle simply does not provide enough resources for item-reliant champions!
Two Gold per 10 items work like a charm.
: Gank hard and often, my friend.
: The most affordable tanky-jungle option!
- shurelya's reverie: Aaaand now you and your team have Ghost!
: The good stuff.
- : Very scary indeed!
The basic jungling route for Volibear is as follows:
Get your teammates to pull Blue Golem aggro for an easier jungle!
After ganking, buy philosopher's stone and Boots of Speed with your Gold.
To gank and initiate fights, use Rolling Thunder to close distance and throw, then pop Majestic Roar for Damage and slow! Auto-attack and nuke with Frenzy!
Once you have Aegis of the Legion, you're a MONSTER.
Push lanes, win teamfights, and continue to Farm!
With shurelya's reverie and Spirit Visage, you're a DEMON.
Finish off the enemy team and their Nexus with your teammates!
