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 everyone, and welcome to my Viktor build guide! In this guide I will provide a small explanation of Viktor and his abilities. I would also like to note that this is my first build, so please take that into consideration!
I would also like to note that throughout these builds, since the augmentations aren't in the database, that: Zhonya's Ring = Augment death
The build: Opinion
The build is my method of playing Viktor. It gives him A LOT of AP and some survival. Augment Death is represented by Zhonya's Ring, as explained before.
-Decent AP out of passive
-Harassment is very nice
-Can farm easily with his Death Ray.
-Squishy, like most mages
-The inexperienced may have a hard time aiming his E.
-Is a commonly focused target
-Mana issues early.
Your items are key to help your ability to survive as well as boost your damage. I like to grab the Dorans Ring first to give me some M regen and AP. After the first blood and minions you should work towards a Catalyst after grabbing some boots of speed. Continue your laning and farming until you can afford your Sorcerer's Shoes. If you can wait and need an edge rush a blasting wand towards your Rod of Ages. After completing the Rod and boots your almighty passive, your augment, comes into play. Rush the 1200 G and augment Death. This gives you a nice DoT, and at level 18, your hex core totals at an amazing 99 AP! After the augment I generally rush towards a rabadons, but you can either: A. Stay the course and get it. B. Work towards a Morello's if you need some CD and M regen. or C. Work the Rylai's to get the slow and HP. It is entirely up to you how you finish the second half. At the end you should have around 30 CDR. Eat a blue pot or grab blue and be capped at 40 CDR.
This area is just a short explanation of the augments.
Death: My favorite augment. It gives AP and a DoT on your E
Power: Survival. Giving HP, HP regen, and a movement speed buff on your Q.
Gravity: Utility. Mana, Mana regen, 10 CDR, and a bigger cast range on your W.
What you should do when laning against enemies is harass with your Q.
Farming: zoom your E right down the minion wave, and just basic enemies, or even hit a Q.
Takedown: Harass with your Q. When they get pissed, try and trap them in your W and harass more with Q. Zap them with an E and blow your ulti and ignite if they are pretty low. IF they live through the ult burst, chase them down with it, the dot from your E, Ignite, and the Ulti SHOULD end them.
Well, I know I didn't go really in-depth with everything. It is because the runes, masteries, and summoner spells simply work. Being this was my first build, I don't expect a lot of positive votes, but hey, I tried to explain. I hope you get a lot of kills with this, and good luck.
