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.
Hello and welcome to my first (technically second but my first one was rubbish) champion guide on Mobafire featuring Vel'koz, The Eye of the Void.
I know that this is probably not the best guide and maybe even the worst but i hope at least one person will find it somehow usefull.
This guide is not mean to be too long and will only show you the basics for the Vel'koz beginners.
Feel free to vote whatever you like.
For runes I recommend:
9x Mark of magic penetration
9x Glyph of scaling magic resist
9x Seals of scaling armor
3x Quint of magic penetration
Magic penetration is you best offensive choise because of Vel'koz' high base damage and his low scalings.
You want to get scaling defensive runes because since the rune update they're a lot more powefull.
For masteries I recommend:
Make sure to pick up as much free damage as posible in the offensive tree and dipp into the utility tree for your summoner spell cdr and to keep you blue alive for much longer.
Get some form of mana sustain early as well as your boots.
When building defensively pick up an archangel's and a banshys and follow up with a zhonya's.
Start with your Q and max it first for great lane harass.
Put a point in your W at lvl 2 so you can proc you passive more easily.
Your E is a great tool to keep your enemys in place and allign them for your other skills as well as pushing unwanted followers away from you.
You're ultimate is an AoE, high damage, slowing and passive procing laser of doom.
Use it to secure kills or in teamfight to get a bunch of true damage on everything in your sight.
For summoner spells I use:
Flash: escape tool and as gap closer
Teleport: tower saving and better roaming
Ignite: increase kill potential
Ghost : chasing and escaping
Barrier: against heavy burst
Vel'koz synergizes well with almost every champion that can hold the enemys in place.
Braum is an especially good example since his ultimate follows a streight line and leaves behind a heavy slow zone. He also can take most of the CC that was ment for you if you're channeling your ultimate.
In teamfights you have sveral options:
Initiate with you ultimate and make it easier for your team
Wait for your team to engage and pop you're ultimate in the middle of the fight to eventually pick up some kills
Don't use you ultimate in the fight and try to kill your fleeing opponents with it
No matter how you do it try to hit as many enemys possible!
As Vel'koz youre kiting is very easy because of your low cast times
When you're getting chased just cast you W at your enemys and eventually cast your E to enlarge the distance between you and your opponents
So we've come to an end.
I hope some of you liked my tiny guide.
