Introduction

Hey there, my name is EbilGenius, and I'll be showing you how to build a GLASS CANNON VEIGAR!! In this build I will show you pretty much everything you need to know on how to blast through enemies and guide your way to their nexus.


Guide Top

Masteries

I have you get all utility and a little Offense mostly because Veigar is a heavy Ability Power Champion.


Guide Top

Items

This is important, most people don't like to get the Doran's Ring first, just because of the reduced mana gaining, but trust me, at level 1, Veigar is the squishiest character in the game, you will need the 100 hp boost that Doran's gives you. After this, get the Ionian Boots of Lucidity because of the reduced cooldowns that it gives, which is essential to Veigar's survival. After you get these boots, harass until you gain enough to get Rabadon's, after which you will be ultra powerful through the rest of the game. After Rabadon's work your way into Archangels Staff which will give you more mana and mana regeneration and will allow you to stay in the field of battle much longer. After Archangel's get Morello's Tome which along with the AP boost, will give you even more reduced cooldowns. Then get another Archangel's and you're set!

Skill Sequence

You might want to get the stun first, but don't, it doesn't really help at this point. Get your Q and harass and last hit. IMPORTANT - When Veigar last hits with his Q, he gains permanent AP, farm and last his as much as you can throughout the game!!!. After you get your Q and E work on your W which will allow you to farm more effectively. Once you have your Ult, you will be able to take down a full champion with one burst.

Summoner Spells

I have you get Flash and Ghost because despite Veigar's stun, he is very vulnerable to attack and needs to be able to escape quickly.


Guide Top

Unique Skills

Veigar's most prominent ability is his stun, which can either make or break a game depending on how well you use it. Remember, enemies will only be stunned if they run into the perimeter of the spell.


Guide Top

Team Work

It's important to land your stun right, because 3 seconds of damage from your team can win a team fight easily. Take your time and time it right. Also make sure and burst your skills on one of the enemy fighters

Creeping / Jungling

So pretty much I made this chapter to stress the importance of last hitting minions... LAST HIT MINIONS LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW. Every single last hit is an extra ap point to you, gain as many as you can.
