Runes

Rememb to pay attention to buy runes,because runes are expensive,diferent of masteries,you need to pay ip to have runes,runes are very variable

Runes

Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
9

Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration
9

Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power
9

Greater Quintessence of Scaling Ability Power
2

Greater Quintessence of Health
1

Recommended:


Mark:
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
In my opinion 9 mark of magic penetration is core,but you can change with other runes
Seal:
Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration
Good runes,is not core,but recommended,because Veigar need A LOT of mana
Glyphs:
Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power
Really good runes to Veigar,more ap,more damage,more kills,more gold,more equip,more feded
Quintessences:
Greater Quintessence of Scaling Ability Power
The same,more ap,more damage,more kills,more gold,more equip,more feded
Greater Quintessence of Health
I like this rune to Veigar,because he is squishy

Other Good runes to Veigar:


Mark:
Greater Mark of Vitality
I hate this runes,the 1 quintessence flat health is better
Greater Mark of Armor
The veigar's counters,are ad(exept a few mages before level 6 or 11)and veigar is weak early game,but i prefer armor per level of quintessences because early game the players do not gank,except jungle
Seal
Greater Glyph of Replenishment
Really good runes to veigar,Veigar burn to much mana in the skills,but i prefer mana regen per level because,the flat runes are more effective early game,late game the runes per level has more bonus,and veigar before level 6-8 only cast the Baleful Strike to farm the Ability Power,and Baleful Strike do not have a big mana cost
Glyphs:
Greater Glyph of Ability Power
Veigar have a weak early game,and he need a good early game to do a good late game,ability power flat is a good choice
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction
More cooldown reduction,more farm of ap,why? because his Baleful Strike gains 1 ability power each time he do last hit with the skill,more cooldown reduction,more last hit
Greater Glyph of Scaling Cooldown Reduction
The Cooldown of the skills are big,good choice,but i prefer cooldown reduction flat
Quintessences:
Greater Quintessence of Magic Penetration
if you want more magic penetration in the early game,this is a good option,but i prefer Void Staff if the enemys are doing magic resist
Greater Quintessence of Ability Power
Veigar need a good early game
Greater Quintessence of Cooldown Reduction
To farm more the Baleful Strike
Greater Quintessence of Scaling Cooldown Reduction
The cooldown of the skills are big
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed
Veigar have a slow movement speed,a good option to move faster
Greater Quintessence of Defense
The veigar's counter are AD
Greater Quintessence of Armor
good runes,and veigar is weak early game,but early game the players do not gank a lot(except jungle)

Summoner Spells

Pay attention to choose the summoner spell

Core:
Flash
Is the best summoner spell of the game,through walls,help to escape from ganks,and help to gank,the problem is that the big cd of the spell
Good options:
Ghost to escape from ganks and to help to gank
Ignite deal true damage each second,good to kill the enemy that escaped with 50 health,and reduce enemy heal,good against or
Teleportif you need to recall to buy item,and you can not lost a moment in the lane
Other options:
Heal
if you need more heal than the Catalyst the Protector is a good choice
Clarity
if you do not have runes and/or masteries of mana regen,or if you finish the mana fast,is a good choice
Revive
I only recommend if you die a lot,and you lose A LOT of xp because this,i don't like,but isn't gg if you choose this spell
Cleanse
i don not like this spell with veigar,but if you have a lot of problem agains champions with hard cc,is a good spell
Never:
Smite
you are not jungle
Clairvoyance
This is better with support
Promote
Is terrible,is useless late game,he kills the minions and you farm less the
Exhaust
have a small range,and you are squishy,if you approach you die
Surge
is only good with hybrid champions,veigar are mage,and the attack speed is useless to veigar,and you do not take advantage with this spell

Wards

EVERYONE need to buy wards,at least to protect the lane
Circle:

Buy with Sight Ward

Square:

Buy with Sight Ward or Vision Ward

Black is to defensive ward,is core,ever buy ward,at least to protect you

Red to counter jungle,is not core,i only recommend to buy this ward if you have a good farm or are feded
Purple to the wards to protect baron and dragon,and control the movement of the enemys,only buy if you have a really good farm or are feded
Green to the wards to protect allys,only buy if you are feded

Items

The Build have a lot of variations!



You need to pay attention to buy items,less than runes,because if you do a mistake,you need to sell and do not return all the gold of the item,but you do not need to pay attention than runes,because items is of ONE game,runes is for ALL games

Early game:
Item Sequence











Catalyst of Aeons
1100

Sorcerer's Shoes
1100

Tear of the Goddess
750

in my opinion,this is the best to early game in my opinion,because you have the basic,heal and mana heal,and you do not need to go to the shop to buy potions,movement speed with a good magic pen,a lot of mana,gold per second,this build have a lot of variations,that i'm go say before in what do ingame
Mid game:
Item Sequence











Rod of Ages
2700

Deathfire Grasp
3100

Rabadon's Deathcap
3800

Is this time,when you buy your start the veigar rage,this build have a lot of variations to,especially change the or to a

Late game:
Item Sequence











Rod of Ages
2700

Deathfire Grasp
3100

Rabadon's Deathcap
3800

Archangel's Staff
3100

Rylai's Crystal Scepter
3200
90

The items have A LOT of variations,i'm go say after the variations in "how to play"


Other items:


Mercury's Treads if the enemys have a lot of cc
Doran's Ring is a good start item to
Haunting Guise a dorans ring better,have more health and ability power,but different of dorans ring, do not give mana regen,but give magic penetration
Mejai's Soulstealer you buy this item only if you are feded
Void Staff one of the best items to veigar,but is only usefull if the enemys has a lot of magic resist
Abyssal Scepter have magic penetration,magic resist to counter more the mages,and ability power
Lich Bane his passive with Veigar is really good
Morello's Evil Tome more cooldown reduction and ability power
Will of the Ancients i do not recommend,but is not bad to veigar
Zhonya's Hourglass to survive vs ad,that is your counter


Remember!you can put before,is only one option to put late,and if you are not good to stack the passive of more mana,the second passive is useless,and change to other item( for example)

How to play

Early game:

Ever go mid,start with a Meki Pendant and two Health Potion,or with 1 or with one Boots of Speed and 3 ,start with skill,try to farm more you can,if you are new,do not have problem if you do not farm a lot in the firsts times,and each minute,the farm are better,because the level of baleful strike is bigger,and the cooldown lower,and more damage(you need to wait less to farm the skill),try to recall and buy one of the early game items
if you do not have any problem or if you have problem to farm:
Kage's Lucky Pick,to win more gold,because if you do not farm you have less gold,and deal more dmg to farm more the minions


If you have problem to dodge the enemy skill shot or the enemy are doing a few magic resist:


if you need health or a few health and mana:
Catalyst the Protector


if you need mana or a LOT of mana:


now buy what you need,if you need nothing,do the sequence writed in item
and when you level up to level 6,do not cast the ultimate ever,in the level 6-10 the ultimate do no to a good damage,only more damage than other skills,but is not a lot to a ultimate

Mid Game:
Now if you reach level 11,you can cast more ultimates,if the allys need help,try to push the lane and go gank,push the lane,because when you return,you can not return with the enemy hitting your tower,push more the lane,but ever try to farm

if you need more crowd control or health:


If you need more health and mana or if you do not have any problem:
upgrade your Catalyst the Protector to a

If the enemys are doing a lot of magic resistance:

If you need mana or ability power:

buy what you need,if you do not need nothing,buy the sequence in the items
