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.
Hey fellow summoners. This is my first time making a build so please go easy on the criticism. I've always wanted to make a guide ever since i started playing LoL.
Shortly summarizing, this guide focuses on the unbelievable potential of Veigar. He has so much to offer, and is highly versatile. It is for that reason that i have decided to focus mainly on AP. This build contains high AP but low Mana. My reason for this will be explained later on in the build.
In conclusion, AP will be your best friend in this guide.
Pros / Cons
- High AP
- 130 Armor, not so squishy
- Low Mana
- Low Magic Resist
- Somewhat of a low speed
Flash - Flash is always useful, and is probably the best spell in the game of terms of Offense and Defense. I shouldn't need to explain how to use this spell.
Ignite - Ignite? **** YEAH TAKE THIS ****.
Clarity - Depends on how you want to play Veigar. Basically your choice.
Exhaust - What? No! Don't ever get this.
Combos are very important for Veigar. There is one sole offensive combo i use and it works every time. Basically, you get within range of Event Horizon on a enemy and stun them. Then you quickly Dark Matter and use Baleful Strike. If they escape with low hp, ignite them. If they escape with high hp, ult them.
Defensive / Escape Combo - This is similar to the offensive combo i mentioned above. Imagine that you are being chased or your teammate is being attacked. You want to stun them at the edge of your event horizon so that they cannot move. This combo will work 70 - 100% of the time if you know how to use the combo correctly.
Tips for Defensive / Escape Combo - One very important tip is that you make sure to put the edge of event horizon down on the enemy champion. This is because if they are chasing you, they will instantly get stunned on the edge. This way, the enemy will have absolutely no chance of hitting you with a long range spell. Practice can make this combo so defensive that over time, the enemy will not chase you later on.
In this build, you start with boots and 3 health potions. This way you have higher speed and a higher chance of escaping. However, you are stuck with a low 462 health. An alternative to this is to buy a Doran's Ring instead of the boots and pots.
This build MAINLY focuses on both AP and ARMOR. Why? Because Veigar can be VERY squishy and so i have provided a Zhonya's Hourglass to add 50 armor. This way you are not as squishy and can survive more ganks and 100 AP is added as well.
Creeping / Jungling
Please. Dont make me discuss this topic.
Veigar is not meant to jungle, although i suppose it would be possible.
Therefore, i shall give you a explanation why you should NOT jungle Veigar.
His skills are not very compatible to jungle because he is a AP champion, not AD. You would be too weak to kill any monster in jungle early game. You CAN however, jungle starting at mid game if you were trolling.
