Introduction

Hello everyone and welcome to my Veigar guide. If you're doing a custom game with one of your friend (who will probably play Nasus) and you both farm your QQ, you need to know which item you need to buy to maximise all of your stats for more survivability because dying after 1 hour of game, 72 second spend dead is equal to an iminent defeat. So check this out. :D

Runes

For runes, its simple in my opinion, you need to get tankiness to survive longer and the most important, NOT DYING!. So, getting scaling armor and magic resistance seems perfect for this situation. Movement speed is very good too because Veigar is a pretty slow champ. A speed bonus can save his life like he can finish someone.

Masteries

Cooldown, AP, Magic penetration... Well, those masteries for AP are like the others. But i take 5% more armor and magic resist because its way more better to get 10 free armor/MR late game than 0.4 health regen...

Items

Now, its the wierd part of this build. To start, you build like a normal AP carry Veigar.

Item Sequence











Rod of Ages
2700

Seraph's Embrace
3000

Rabadon's Deathcap
3800

Zhonya's Hourglass
2900

Nashor's Tooth
3000

Sorcerer's Shoes is good early game with the 15 flat Magic resitance penetration, but useless late game because Void Staff is way more better late game than this.

Rod of Ages is a really good item in early game because it give you the HP you need (650 HP), some mana and AP for more survivability. Not bad late game but other items can be more usefull like Spirit Visage BUT Rod of Ages way more usefull if your enemies are mostly AD because it gives you more HP, mana, and AP than Spirit Visage without the Magic Resist (which is useless vs. AD).

Archangel's Staff is essential early game, because it give you 1k of mana, some AP and a protection. It give more survivability and it work very well with Veigar's passive but fall off late game.

Rabadon's Deathcap... 30% more AP. No more questions, just take it, TAKE IT DAMMIT!!

Zhonya's hourglass is the main armor item of Veigar and, the most important of all, it give you the best protection NA ever: invulnerability! Perfect to counter those f***ing annoying Karthus Requiem! :D Its give you also some AP for early game.

Nashor's Tooth is one of the most important item on him late game. Why? Because it give you a cool 20% cooldown, a minimum of AP, 50% attack speed and the most important, the passive: your basic attack deal 15% of your AP in magical damage... with the Arcane Masteries, its 20% of your AP! Late game, this item can do more damage than some adc basic attack, with one item only... LIKE A BOSS

Then, late game...
Item Sequence











Zhonya's Hourglass
2900

Rabadon's Deathcap
3800

Void Staff
2650

Spirit Visage
2800

Nashor's Tooth
3000
Spirit Visage is a great late game item because its your main MR item with 55 Magic resistance, it give you 10% cooldown, some health regen and 400 HP for more survivability.

Void Staff is essential late game because 35% of magic penetration is a lot more compared to the 15 flat Magic penetration of Sorcerer's Shoes.

Mercury's Treads is good late game because it have the 35% more tenacy unique passive and give you 25 magic resist, perfect to counter all those heavy CC mage.

What about Luden's Echo?

Well, Luden's Echo can be a great items to excecute a multiple amout of target in the same time. The passive is the reason why this item have a great potiential late game. The 15% AP bonus damage effect on close target can be the begining of the TEAM NUKER VEIGAR but it need to be charged and that's the problem. With Cassiopeia, the charge of Luden's Echo is very short, so it's effecive on her, but not with Veigar because it have a 'long' cooldown compared to her. In comparaison with Nashor's Tooth, it have the 15% basic attack passive at EVERY basic attack, but not Luden's Echo. That's why Nashor's Tooth is better.

About Hextech Gunblade and Will of the ancients?

Well, Hextech Gunblade can be an amazing substain item because of the spell vamp and the life steal, both combined together can be a constant healing for Veigar. It give you AP, Attack damage (which it isn't that usefull on Veigar) but the substain it give can be insane, Same for the Will of the ancients but with the 10% cooldown. I'll test as soon as i can.

Is Guardian Angel worth or not?

Well, with the 50 Armor and 50 MR plus the revive seems to be awesome, but can it be more usefull than other items like Zhonya's hourglass? The revive as a cooldown of 6:00 minutes, but the Staitc have a cooldown of 1:30 minutes. It bring you supplemental MR but leave the AP. Also, the revive only occur when you die, but the static can be at everytime. At least, the revive will be activated automaticly but not the static (which can represent a failure and probably means death). I'll Test this as soon as i can.
