[Patch 6.14] Vel'koz: Dominate
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Threats to Vel'Koz with this build
|Viktor||Viktor can be a problem if he knows how to use his ult and scale into mid-late game. Pre 6 you are stronger than him because of your passive and due to his 1250 gold first item nerf, try to force him to back early by poking him and shoving lane. His ult cancels your ult channel so watch out for that but if you stay backline and let your team initiate for you, you can dish out a lot of damage without dealing with Viktor.|

Patch 6.9: Mage Update
The mage update came with a bunch of different buffs to champions such as Cassiopeia, Vladimir, Malzahar, Zyra, Brand, and last but not least, Vel'Koz. So I'm going to try to break down the insane buff the Vel'Koz received in his update.
