Not Updated For Current Season
Hello to all of my fellow Summoners! I am Seraphos, proud player of League of Legends since early March of 2014, and this is my first champion guide. Viktor has held a special place in my heart since I started playing, as he was one of the first 6300ip champions I bought. In this guide, I am going to present my personal playstyle for Top Lane Viktor, and I appreciate any and all feedback.
Note: I have next to no understanding of BBCoding, and find it rather confusing. Please bear with me.
I covered most of the basics in the top of the guide, so let's move right into the thick of things with Viktor's spell kit!
Glorious Evolution - This is Viktor's passive, it gives him a unique item that can be upgraded three times to provide him with a large amount of AP, Mana, and augments to his abilities!
Siphon Power - This is Viktor's Q. It functions as a targeted, travel time nuke that also applies an instantaneous shield to Viktor. Along with it's initial damage, it amplifies Viktor's next AA in 3.5 seconds with magic damage, making Iceborn Gauntlet a great Offtank item for Viktor.
Augment- Turbocharge - Instantly grants Viktor 30% Movement speed for 2.5 seconds.
Gravity Field - This is Viktor's W. It is a ground targeted AOE ability that sets a slow field down for 4 seconds after an arming delay. While in the field, enemy units are slowed more and more each .5 seconds. After being inside the field for 1.5 seconds, a target is stunned for 1.5 seconds.
Augment- Implosion - Pulls stunned units to the center of the field.
Death Ray - This is Viktor's E. It is a ground targeted click-and-drag ability that causes Viktor to "draw" a laser line dealing damage to all enemies in its path.
Augment- Aftershock - Causes the laser to cause aftershock damage to any targets on the path the laser burned. Targets damaged by the laser take reduced damage.
Chaos Storm - This is Viktor's Ultimate, or R. It is a ground targeted AOE burst spell that interrupts channeled abilities. After the initial cast, pressing R will reposition the storm, during which time it will deal damage per second to all enemy units within its AOE. The farther away it travels from Viktor, the slower it will travel.
Augment- Velocity - Causes the Chaos Storm to travel 20% faster.
Pros / Cons
+ Insane Burst - Low mobility
+ Kiting Potential - No gap closer or escape.
+ AOE Slow/Stun - Click and drag spells....
+ Visionary - Late game positioning is key.
+ Robocop - To forceful about his beliefs.....
It's time, the match has moved into the Teamfight stage! Whay should you, as a Viktor player be doing?
Positioning- As an AP-Offtank/Low mobility mage, your primary objective should be to stay at a safe distance from your enemies tanks and carries. Unless you have the element of surprise, you will be easily taken down. Instead, focus on being the long ranged source of damage your team needs you to be.
Spell Usage- Your E, Death Ray, is devastating because it hurts all enemies in it path. Meanwhile, Gravity Field can be used as an amazing form of crowd control to aid your team in defeating the enemy! Most importantly however, is your use of Chaos Storm. When you see the chance to damage all/many of the enemy players, or interrupt a devastating channel, make sure to use it!
I'm very happy to share my playstyle with you all! If you have questions of FRIENDLY criticism please feel free to share with me. I hope to see you on the Rift!
For the Glorious Evolution, Seraphos
