Threats to Vel'Koz with this build
|Ezreal||Skill matchup Dont ult when he has his jump.|
|Riven||Skillmatchup You should win this easy just EW when he gets close. Dont chaise or overstay with low health. THIS DOESNT COUNT ON TOP. Top has riven a clear advantage.|
This is my first guide ever any advice will be really appriciated.
I have started maining Vel'koz from season 4. I have played a couple of hundred games with him. I'm going to play him until i em diamond.
I'm dyslexic so i make tons of grammer mistakes. Sorry for that.
If you want me to teach you Vel'koz say ask it in chat and i will send you a request. (not the other way around for spam reasons.) The price is 1 vel'koz skin.
This guide is on maintenance so that means i will make it better and i'm not done yet.
Pro / Cons
Insane base damage
CC on 3 of his abilities
Very few peaple play him so not many peaple know how to counterplay him
Good early and late game
Low ap ratio on ult
Pure damage passif
Best emo spam of the game (Oh Darn)
Team dependant for protection expecialy mid game
Doesn't snowbal good
Weak lv 1
Flash - You can't do without flash.
Heal - optional but i find it by far the best spell since it give's you health and excape.
Barrier - Gives a bigger shield but doesn't give the muchneeded mobility.
Ghost - You don't need your speedboost that long and you miss the health.
Telleport - Valid on top lane but i don't like it.
Ignite - Possible on support not recommended
Abilities - As mid
Q - In laning phase you use this spell only to get your enemy in place to EW them easy. Since you max this spell second it doesn't deal enough damage to only poke with it. If you poke with it you run out of mana fast. You can use it to make sure they can't recall.
In Late game you will ask for blue buff and with that genaration you can spam this all you want.
Way to use Q :
Send it next to a wave and recast it just when it is after it to make sure they can't hide behind minion wafe.
When poking late you have to options to use it shooting direct or to the side.
When shooting direct you need to be closer but you have a higher chance to hit more targets.
When shooting to the side you have more range but you can just hit 1 target.
Best to shoot to the side when the enemy have cc poke like ahri or blitz or when they have a good engage.
This is your main damage combo it with E to get 3 stacks. Also the second hit is bigger than the first and does more damage.
Combo this with you W to keep the enemy on place for the second hit. This is also your main defencif ability. If you place it to far behind your target you give them a free engage. That is why you always place it between you and your enemy.
This ult does insane damage. If you fully hit it you gain 5 stacks on your passif. For this reason always try to QEW before using it. You can also use this so force the enemy back so you can easy farm.
Remember it is always a skill matchup. This is just a basic view.
