Patch 5.4 support veigar
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.
Ok, so the 5.4 patch changed up Veigar a bit which i will be going over in the abilities section. Veigar is a godly Support due to his stuns and now his Q which as a support you will not be farming but instead be utilizing the fact that it is now a skill shot and passes through enemies (see abilities). I would like your feedback on this guide as veigar patch is very new.
I chose these runes so you will be the most advantage as a support you will need mana regen as well as armor so you cant be harassed as much by the enemy adc.
The Items on this list give you mana or mana regen as you will be harassing the enemy team with your q alot. also archstaff will give you AP based off your mana so you dont have to worry about not having any AP. armor will be provided via hourglass and archstaff maxed out will give you shield so survivibility is alot higher. Grail is for mana regen and slight amount of MR. Lich Bane is so that you get some flat AP besides hourglass and grail, also it will make your Auto Attack more effective and Veigar is a really good Auto Attack with range and its pretty fast for a mage.
OK so the spells due to patch 5.4 got alot more spammable due to amazing CD boosts and mana cost reductions.
Q-(Baleful Strike) as a support you will not be taking cs which means you guessed it no farming AP stacks. But the patch makes it both a skill shot and able to pass through enemies which make it a harassing ability! Your W will do much more damage than this tho and since you should be lvling your stun first this is really set in the back burner. P.S. (personally i Q farm when i am able to like when adc is backing and you are under turret.)
W-(Dark Matter) this was given way more spammibility due to the patch CD reductions. giving you great harass after you E an enemy and also to keep them out of bushes to ambush you and your ADC. Also a good plus it wont kill mage minions in the back so go ahead and W them if your enemies are crowding them and it will also help your ADC get the CS on them
E-the patch gave this ability a .75 delay which honestly sucks! but as a support you are able to stay in bushes and trap enemies in the middle making it hard to escape during ganks and also always you and your ADC to harass them a bit while they have to make the choice to take the harass or flash out. also since the delay makes it easier for a enemy champ to just walk out of it once you place it i counteracted that with movement speed quintessences and your Gold income has a movement speed boost as well, so if the enemy is backing you can catch up and place it stun a little ahead of them enough so they wont just walk out of the zone before it appears.
R-now this is really good early game like when you first get it at 6 enemy lane is still squishy and it will still do considerable burst damage. you can use this in the beginning of a fight to help your ADC get the kill by getting their HP considerably lower,it scales badly due to the patch and you wont have a ton a AP to fuel it anyhow. use this as a fast,tiny, burst to get some early turn-the-tables assists. in late game is still does some damage, just don't expect it you level a champ like a mid veigar.
