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.
Welcome to my volibear guide for league of legends
I play volibear as a tank who still deals lots of damage thanks to his frenzy and his other abilities. He costs 6300 ip but he's really worth it and also fun to play.
Also volibear has the most AWESOME passive of the whole game (i think), no ignite or mordekaiser ult will kill you because if they think that they've almost killed you, your passive come and you just bite them in pieces.
For runes i take a bit defense for early and late game, and flat attack damage. You might think it's weird but for early game it's very nice against a off tank who deals more damage then you. If you'd take more armor and magic resist he maybe can't kill you but with the bonus ad you deal almost the same damage as him.
If you want to play more tanky then you can always pick more tanky masteries but it's defnitely less fun to play
For masteries i've took lots of defense and a bit of utility, i recommend taking the utility spells i took in this build for every page because that one sec earlier recall could save your life and when the tower is going down it's nice when you are 5 seconds alife earlier. All the other masteries are just the masteries every tank should have.
For items you should start with a dorans shield because it will give you bunch of lifes and health regen and also a bit armor what is nice against an Ad top. Then it's always the best thing to do (if you dont start with it) buy boots. Because volibear's w deals damage based on his hp and hp is just nice then buy a giant's belt, with that item early game it's really hard to kill you and you're w deals amazing damage. Then you can choose ninja tabi or mercury's threads, i recommend merc's because of the tenacity but if you're playing against an ad team just buy ninja tabi.
And then another decision, do you buy armor or magic resist? i recommend armor (chain vest) because the top you're playing against will probably be an ad and you allready have your magic resist boots. But if you're playing against an ap team or just an op ap top then buy negatron cloak.
With the items you allready have now the other team will have to work hard to kill you while you jut will survive almost everything with your AWESOME passive.
Then it's time to finish your warmogs and frozen heart, these two items will give you more sustain and warmogs will make your w more op. After that you should buy more magic resist but if you need it earlier, buy it before frozen heart.
And then you have the final choise, do you want more ap damage with your e and ulti, or is their ad carry to annyoing and you want to buy a thornmail.
And when you have all the items of the build you are just unkillable (with a bit volibear skills ;D )
I think a lot of volibear players will start with their w, but because of the ad runes it's good to start with your q. You just ran into someone with your q and no way they can escape then you throw then back between your minions and maybe in tower range and then you just start basic attacking, then 1 they walk away with bunch of damage or 2 they stay and attack you but your minions will deal incredible damage to him because he's only lvl 1.
Then you pick your e and then you can repeat the same thing.
And finally your w to make the third q e w and then you'll probably have them dead.
You max your w first because of the great damage it'll give, then your e for the slow and damage, and finally your q because it will provide you only utility.
If you haven't got that ad runes then you just should start with your w because if you do start with your q and you throw then back they will just hit the fck out of you.
Flash is just a great spell for every champ and i also take it with every champ.
Exhaust is just a very smart choise because with a gank the enemy just can't escape, and in an 1v1 battle it just stops his damage for a few seconds.
Ignite is also an excellent choise if you choose the ad runes, if you go more tanky i recommend exhaust in teamfight.
You can take teleport but i don't really like the spell, you can just walk and you're allready earlier alive thanks to the masteries
i hope you enjoyed my build and go out there and bite everyone even if you play tank support ^^
