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.
Though the northern reaches of Freljord are some of the most unforgiving lands in Valoran, the Ursine have survived upon the region's barren, stormy tundra for centuries. As a fierce and respected warrior of the Ursine, Volibear devoted his life to the protection of his people and loyalty to his elder brother, the tribe's chief. When his brother was killed during a hunt on the tundra, the tribe looked to Volibear as his successor. It was an honor and a burden that Volibear had never expected, but he shouldered the charge with pride. However, by Ursine tradition, the tribe could not recognize Volibear as chief until he returned from a journey to the peak of their sacred mountain, a place forever shrouded in a thundering maelstrom. There, Ursine chieftains must speak to the storm itself, gaining clarity and wisdom to empower them as mighty leaders.
Donning the chieftain's traditional armor and enchanted gauntlets, Volibear began the long and perilous climb up the slopes of the mountain. When he reached the peak and gazed into the raging storm above, he saw a horrific vision of a Freljord utterly consumed by war. Amidst the carnage, the Ursine fell dead upon a bloody battlefield. Believing the vision to be an omen of things to come if he did not act against them, Volibear traveled to the capitol of Freljord. The Ursine had not ventured across the southern mountains in centuries and his appearance was met with unease. However, Queen Ashe recognized Volibear as a wise and powerful ally. In what Volibear considered the first step against a war-torn future, they forged an alliance. As part of their agreement, he joined the League of Legends in the name of a unified Freljord, representing the primal might of his nation on the Field of Justice.
''Few can weather the storm that follows in the wake of Volibear's roar.'' - Ashe, the Frost Archer
This build is constantly being changed and modeled the more I play it. I am the tank on my team so I am always changing to how the other team is built and I am doing a lot of trial and error matches when facing new team build ups.
I am going through how to play against other characters and how to play with other kind of characters in the lane with you.
My rune choices for this build are based on a tank build with armor and magic resist. Right now I have my quins all for armor because most damage comes from AD types of characters. The attack speed increase is for the help in ganking between the lvls of 1-5 with the help of frenzy.
The masteries build out is also based on a tank based build. Adding as much health, armor, and magic resist to help in the tanking aspect in the game. I also throw in the revive faster to help in keeping the tank on the field more to allow more bear terror.
My summor spells are Flash and ignite. The flash will help with ganking and so will the ignite. The flash will also help you get away in times that your carry or support is MIA or dead.
