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.
Vieger: Definition of nuke
Vieger is quite often considered one of the best nukers in LoL. None of his abilities can be interrupted by minions, and his ultimate not only takes your own level and AP into consideration, but the enemies AP as well. Through this guide, you will have the knowledge to farm AP well, solo middle lane, or lane with a partner, well.
The ((Meki Pendant)) is important for your early game no matter where you are. You are given 475g, the pendant is 390, which leaves enough gold for two ((Health Potion)). ((Ionian Boots Of Lucidity)) are great because of their cooldown reduction, allowing you to farm your AP with your Q much more often. If there are alot of tanks, and just any high resistance enemy, consider getting ((Sorcerers Shoes)). The magic penetration will help out early game to do a little bit extra damage to champions, sometimes thats all you need.
For Mid: Let me point this out right away, your job as Vieger at mid is just to make sure the tower doesn't go down. The mid tower has more health than the other two towers, which means it shouldn't go down! Vieger is meant to solo, and what better place than against another solo. At mid, you don't have the threat of two champions harassing you, so you should be able to farm AP extremely well.
For Top or Bottom: You can't solo a lane first of all. Two champions vs. Vieger is a bad idea early game. It would be nice to have good auto-attack champoin with you, such as Ashe; Xin Zhao is also good. Also you will have a harder time farming AP since your partner will be killing minions as well.
NOTE: Tough Enemies
Vieger has issues with certain champions when he is at mid.
Major early game threats:
(icon=Caitlyn size=64)(icon=Urgot size=64) (icon=Sivir size=64) (icon=Anivia size=64) (icon=Teemo size=64) (icon=Xin Zhao size=64)
((Xin Zhao)): She outranges you and shes not AP
((Urgot)): Since you are concetrating on farming, its tough to avoid his gas early, and then his Q can fly an long disatance and does a good amount of damage to you
((Sivir)): She's a *****. Shes not AP and her ricochet hurts when its destroying everything.
((Anivia)): Her spike hurts alot when you are slowed, on top of that, her passive is a guardians angel so you have to kill her twice.
((Teemo)): If Teemo is going AD, first you need to watch about his invisibility(usually they are right in the middle of the lane). You also have a problem if you don't catch your stun, his blind-slow-poisen dealio will kill you; hit your stun! If he's AP, then you can destroy him.
((Xin Zhao)): Although he doesn't lane mid, his ganking abilities is op. He's not AP either, just watch out for a gank when he's on their team.
