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.
To most, thoughts of yordles do not conjure images to be feared. The easygoing half-pint race, though fierce, is often regarded with some degree of joviality. Their high-pitched voices and naturally cute forms inspire something of a protective instinct in the larger races, or at least bring to mind images of children playing at being adults. every now and again, however, a yordles turns so bad that, even at its small stature, it strikes terror into the hearts of others. Veigar is such a twisted yordle. As a master of the magical black arts, as well as a corruptor of cosmic energy, he is one of the most powerful sorcerers on Valoran.
As a child, Veigar was a normal yordle with one small exception - he had a deep curiosity for the world beyond Bandle City. The young yordle spent much of his time studying the rest of Valoran, and he jumped at the chance to join a business that traded with other major city-states. Unfortunately for both him and the world, a deal with Noxian trader turned into shady business and went bad; Veigar and his companions were subsequently set up to take the fall. Arrested by the authorities, he was imprisoned within the walls of Noxus for years. Such isolation is very dangerous for yordles - undoubtedly why his cruel jailers did such a thing - and Veigar was slowly driven mad. He eventually escaped, having become a twisted version of his former self. Instead of returning to his people and Bandle City, he sought tutelage from dark wizards across the land. With his demented will focused on one task, he quickly became a dangerous and powerful wizard in his own right. Now he seeks to end all conflict on Valoran by bringing all of the city-states to their knees, regardless of their affiliation. The League of Legends is the perfect tool to help him meet his ends - for now.
Who says evil needs to come in a fearsome-looking package?
Veigar is a champion with massive burst when played right. His Baleful Strike (Q) should always be used to last hit minions due to the fact that it gives you 1 AP per last hit. Veigar's Dark Matter (W) does quite a bit of damage but the target must be standing in the area when it explodes. Veigar's Event Horizon (E) is a stun that the target must touch the edge of to actually become stunned. Veigar's Primordial Burst (R) does massive damage to his target and even more if the target is building AP because it does initial damage plus 80% of the target's Ability Power.
Pros / Cons
-Has a Stun.
-Can hit like a truck on wheels.
-Needs to stun for burst.
-Kind of a mana *****.
With Veigar you want to stun with Event Horizon then in rapid succession use Dark Matter so that the stun will keep them in place to take the damage from Dark Matter and right after dark matter use your ultimate and if that doesn't finish them poke 'em with a Baleful Strike.
Clarity is a big help for Veigar because he consumes mana so quickly.
Ghost is useful for just about any character for both pursuing and escaping.
No. Revive is bad and should be left to the baddies.
WTF is wrong with you?
Veiger in the jungle? Uninstall.
Pretty useless spell because it protects for 6 seconds with a very large cooldown.
Viable in 5s, but not in 3s.
Veigar has enough Damage as is to where he doesn't need ignite.
Good for getting away but in my book it has too big of a cooldown for what it does.
With Veigar all AP runes should be used to increase the effectiveness of all of his abilities.
Veigar's stun is very helpful in teamfights along with his massive burst. His stun can be used both offensively and defensively to either give teammates time to close the gap or time to get away from the enemy.
