To start out, i'm glad you're back. I've been excited for this update your your guide on post-reworked Viktor :D!

Anyways, i've been experimenting with builds myself before the guide updated. Do you still think it's good to grab an Athene's on Viktor? The mana regeneration is nice, but after a few games, I saw it as a missed opportunity. Having an Athene's delays your other items (specifically the new Lich Bane). An early tear could fix the situation, but you and I both know it's not that good.

To fix this problem of yours, you made the build oddly identical to the last build. You upgraded 1 augment (1000 gold like Hex Core: Death) then proceeded to build an Athene's. I think it worked well back then with the Hex Core being cheap and maxed out and Lich Bane being unappealing. I don't think it's all that great now. Upgrading your Hex Core now gives 200 mana every upgrade (perfect hex core gives 600 mana). With that mana, utility, and ap at early levels, you become near unstoppable (blue buff is always nice). The only nice/crucial part is the CDR which i'll honestly miss (RIP). This can be fixed by late game Morellos, TS, or a DFG.

I guess what i'm trying to get at is:
*Perfect Hex Core 1st?: SUPER cost efficient
*No Athene's Unholy Grail: Delays Rabadon's, Lich Bane

I'd appreciate a response with your feedback on why you agree or disagree with me. Stay awesome.

Hi Agarol,

I love your guide since I found it. I also love to play Viktor. The "old" one was a lot of fun to play and my favorite champ. The new evolved Viktor is so really really good in my opinion. All Augments are so good. It is also a good option to augment your q or w first (It`s in fact a great evolution that he can now augment all of his abilities).

Especially an early augmented w helps a lot to maximize the success of a gank.

I`m very excited to see you evolved guide. I can imagine that this needs great efforts from you side. So, I hope you like he new Viktor also quiet a lot.

Well after 5 games with viktor i will add this.....the utility on him now IS CRAZY!!! E is nothing compared to his Q ...let me explain my build i used...... since the new hexcores give a great deal of mana there was no need for Chalice of Harmony(almost,in the early game ....but in late it is needed) 1.Buy an upgrade for the E(shock-wave)does tones of dmg even tho DOT is removed now
2.Buy Sorcerer's Shoes + Furor enchantment wich will serve as a great combo to his Q
3.Time to start building Lich bane witch will serves as yet ANOTHER great combo to Q
4.Upgrade your Q
----with 2.,3. & 4. items complete he will do crazy dmg with his Q + basic attacks(last game i had over 1000 basic attack dmg)
5.Build either Rabadon's Deathcap or Zhonya's Hourglas (depending on the current situation)
6.Make your last upgrade for W and with it R (i will say only this,the ulty looks ugly compared to the old one but it sure as hell is a LOT faster and effective)
----All in all,in the end Viktor became a well oiled death machine and you might say that he *Gloriously evolved*

Stay tunned!

Hi Agarol :)

I also main viktor and i thought another build. Well it's similar excepted I don't use mana regen item like graal.
So first I use doran ring with 2 pots, then i buys Augment: Death with another doran ringer for mana regen. After i buy the void staff, then alacrity Sorcerer's Shoes, then rabadon , zhonya and to finish Deathfire Grasp.
The only problem with this build is the mana, so you have to have a jungle who give to you all the blue.
I want to post my last games with that build because I did big scores but don't know how can put the image xD


Why hello fellow Viktor main! :D

It isn't a bad build. Yeah the mana regen will be a problem now and then, but if you feel confortable playing with this build and style, go for it!

Try to upload your image on one those image hosters and place the link here!

Cheers pal!

5 months, more or less! Great bro, you did it! Really glad that you could do it, and that this guide could provide some help to you!

Now, aim for Plat! You know you can do it, just keep playing and improving your gameplay. Think about how you can do better, and FORGET your *sometimes* ****ty team, even if you're, like, 20/1 and won your lane... FORGET THEM! The secret to win rankeds is: win your lane, and win the other lanes for your team! If you're doing very nice at mid, roam a lot too! Even if you do not get any kills, any summoner spells they waste is worth, and they'll start to flame in their chat about "mias" and etc... Do what you can, improve everything you have to. This is what Viktor want, right? Always improving, aiming for the perfection!

Cheers bro! Keep the good work!

I also main Viktor as an AP Mid (the other midchamp is Talon). I love the Battlecast-Themed Skins and thanks to this guide, I got this little Penta and countless Quadras: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qC1xrxstudI

Keep up the good work! Gotta Laz0r them all °-°


Haha, the guide may have helped you, but YOU most of anything deserved this pentakill! Congratz bro! You're a joy to our fellow Viktor mains!! If you don't mind, i would like to use your video in this guide, is that ok for you? If you want to discuss anything, just pm-me!

Gotta laz0r them all!! >:D


Awesome and brilliant guide!!! Just a little question, would spell vamp be viable on Viktor? :D


Hey bro! Thx for your kind words!

As for Spell Vamp, i don't like it on him, BUT it all depends on your playstyle. If you feel confortable and think it's worth, go for it! Always remember, this is a guide, it shows you one way to play this champion, not the only and right way! Try builds, anything you want, and if you feel confortable with it, if you get nice scores and play well with it, thats YOUR right way to play!

Keep playing with lil Viktor from now on!! =P

quick tip for the Fizz matchup: if you want to trade with him or even all in him then bait out the Playful / Trickster with your q then use w and e and maybe r if you feel like it. I fought one and he would dodge my q's and then i would use E to poke him or even be able to all in after he burnt it.

I main Ryze like you, so I'm gonna write from a Ryze POV. I am a scrub, so someone correct me if I am wrong about something pls :D

Viktor outranges Ryze and outtrades him with his q(shield op), but Ryze has lower cooldowns. If you manage to get close to him( Viktor's cooldowns are long enough and with MS quints you should have a movement speed advantage), you can get a big chunk off his health though. I am not sure how big Viktor's mid-/lategame burst is, but Ryze's is prohably bigger because his burst is bigger than 99% of other bursts :D

What you want to do is dodge his laser, try not to get hit by his q and NEVER EVER EVER get caught in his Stun thingy. Try to poke/burst him when his spells are on cooldown(maybe with jungle help).

I would say that Viktor is not quite as difficult as Lux, Orianna and other **** huge range champions but not too far away from them.


Viktor straight up beats Ryze in mid lane, no questions asked. W and R interrupt Ryze's rotations and Viktor early- and mid-game damage is a lot higher. Late-game damage Ryze's is probably slightly higher but Viktor's isn't low either and his utility is better.

Great Guide man, I was just wondering if you would replace Athenes with Rylalis if you were going against a team with little AP


Hey man! Thx!
I wouldn't, because Athene's gives Viktor a LOT of things he need (mostly the Mana Regen and CDR). You can still do Rilay's if you want, no prob at all.

Hello! Thx for your kind words!

I just tried WoTA and i didn't find that helpfull at all. Yes, Spellvamp and CD Reduc is always nice, but you will be OoM (Out of Mana) really fast. Instead, i almost always go for Athene's.

As for Void or Rilays, it depends on the enemy team or your team. If they're stacking lots of MR, go for Void. If you're being focused and need a lil bit more help to deal with this, Rilay's.

Any other question, just reply or PM-me =]

It's a very good guide, just a question tough, do you have the habit of using Viktor on other lanes? The ability to farm while harassing your foe from afar sounds like a pretty strong thing on top lane and could be cool on a comp where mid and top lane could exchange places.
Thanks for all and one last thing, have you watched the last video from Falconshield? if not here's a link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBNpS8QqD_I , Viktor is just the best!


Sup man!!

I've played some matches with Viktor top and supp. He does very well top, just need to be extra carefull for ganks. As support, i don't know if it is because i'm a **** supp player, but it sucked a lot xDD.

Dude, didn't know this video, it's SICK!! Viktor's part just gave goosebumps hahaha! Watched several times here already, and still hearing it while i'm writting this reply! xD

Hello man!

Well, i tried using Vik as a support before, and got really hard times. He uses way to mana, and doesn't provide many means to keep the ADC alive. But this can also be the fact that i suck being support lol. Sry if i can't help you with this, but if there are more ppl wanting to see a Viktor support i'll try a little more x.x .

Hello,

I am a new player to Lol ( lvl 26 ) and have almost all champions mid Viktor included.

He is a great champion and lately I started to really play with him. I will try this build and I just think one thong strange, the lazer dificulty, I u
think it is easy to use.

Sorry for english mistakes.

I guess you got a point there... I think the most apropiate is to save both item builds and get one or the other depending on your opponents. If they can surprise you (blitz's pull, kha's leap, ziggs, akali, lee sin etc), go for the defensive items. Else, get full ap build.
Maybe you could make a list, to those without common sense, with champs that may force you to get some armor/magic resistance (if you feel like doing so)...

Yeah, that's it. Also, it's not like you are giving up on AP with those defensive items. They give a nice AP too! =P

Sup bro!

You see, there is a lot of champions with gap-close/dash-like abilities, so it's risky to not have any item with defensive properties. For example: you're fed, and destroying everyone in the enemy team. What they'll do? Focus you. So, you have that Vi ulting you, or Zed, or Malphite, THAT crazy-***** Riven coming to you like a raping train. You need any means to keep yourself alive for as much as you can. Zhonyas is a excelent choice for this purpose.

The build you're still using isn't bad at all, really. If you feel confident a lot with this set, go for it. Instant, massive dmg is ALWAYS scary and win a lot of teamfights. But a thing i learned with experience is that a mage that keeps himself alive during a fight will ALWAYS do more dmg and be usefull than that one that used all his skills (IF he could) and died early.

Ty for your comment! Reply if you need any info or want to discuss more.

i cant tell you how great this guide and build is! I got viktor in an aram match and fell in love instantly. i then stumbled across this guide and wow! I rarely lose my lane and when i do it is usually vs fizz and lux. Vs any other champion i have been going 11/5, 7/1, 4/2 and i always get atleast a tripple kill in team fights. my only question is for the final build i usually skip the void staff and go right to the lich bane. after lich bane, do i get rid of boots for the void staff or just play on and just buy elixers once the build is done. Thanks!


Thx for your kindness bro! Glad to know you're in love with Vik! He's trully outr... amazing!!

As for your question, you should always, ALWAYS, have boots. You can skip Void Staff only if their team isn't stacking MR. Rushing Lich Bane isn't bad either. You should find a way to play him in a way you feel confortable.

Cheers!


I'd just like to take a second, and appreciate that you made such a thorough guide AND actually maintained it for two years :) I think I might end up buying him for this


THIS makes me so glad and keeps me going! Really, thank you kind sir!

hello there nice guide. Because of you i started playing this champion. I palyed for like 15 games with him and i would like to hear your opinion on few stuff.

1. Summoner spells:Ignite with combo is rely powerfull but i found (at least for me) teleport and cleanse much more usefull.Cleanse to escape nasty ganks and focus in teamfights and teleport, because i like him, more because u can go all out on enemy then quick buy items and do it again.

2. Augment : im using red in most cases but when stuff arent so good for u (lets say its mid-late game) and u are not feaded as hell,longer range on W to be on safe distance or even Q when u are focused are good.

I would like to hear zou on 2 things.

Btw like i said i love your guide realy helpfull. Im playing him in ranked and have 5/0 so far.
keep it up!


Hey man! Thx, glad i could help you!

To your two questions: you should ALWAYS find a way to play confortable. This guide isn't supposed to tell you the ONLY AND RIGHT way to play Viktor. It shows one efficient way i found, a way that makes ME confortable. So, aside some troll builds and ways, everthing is possible if you feel nice the way you're going!

Cheers bro!

Great guide man, really in-dept. Viktor is one of the most underappreciated beasts of league. The only problem is his limited mobility, but perhaps they'll adress that in his upcoming passive change. One of my mains in mid lane, alongside Lissandra and Zyra.

If you want, I might be able to fix all the grammar mistakes I was able to detect. When I have time that is.


Couldn't agree with you more. I'm really excited for what this new season will be bringing to Viktor, and i hope very good things!

Blade Weaving não é necessária.

Yeah, some of the things you pointed out (like lv2 E or boots at start) i just don't do anymore: in some cases i still do, but not always. I think i'll have to redo some parts of the guide, since i did it in the beggining of the last year, more or less when Viktor was released.

possibly my only problem would be the items, but I mean, if you like that sort of style good on you I guess but Viktor has serious mana regen problems early so I think that mobility isn't as effective as sustain which is why I go flask 1 hp pot 2 mana pots. and yes, I did try the build. P.s. the rest of the build was great, especially the runes :) +1


Sup bro!

Hmm well i try to harass my oponent with autos and Q at the very early lvs. I start to use his E when it reaches lv3 and even so i try to be ABSOLUTELY sure that it'll hit, since it's cost is just too huge to keep spamming. Try to manage your mana pool better and you won't be out of mana so soon. Health pots are way better to sustain and allow you to stay at lane farming more.

Hey!

In reality those itens i put on the Itemization is merelly the possibilities you have with Viktor, itens that are worthy building. Ofc you can't have 7 or more itens at once lol. xD



Just thought I should throw out that you should make your boot enchantment come after the actual tier two boot purchase in the cheat cheet. Cause you know... you cant buy them on tier 1 boots.

Also, Furor enchant is better on Viktor. :3



Sup man!

Yeah the itemization was a lil bit strange lol. Did some changes. Ty!

As for Furor boots, to me it's not worthy unless you also got the Augment: Power. Otherwise i go for Homeguard.

Hey, I was wondering why I've never seen any Viktor in-game, so I decided to see what it look like to play him, and I come on this site like I do before trying almost every champions. I tought it was because he was REALLY hard to play and all, but the way you describe him and all the fun you have, I think I will seriously try him out and play him as well as my others mid champs (I mainly mid or adc). Thanks for this, I didn't tried him yet but as soon as I get the 6300 IP I will do so and give my feedback here.

i love vik, and i don`t dislike your guide. but i just can`t imagine a proper situation for a burst vik (only in an aoe cc team comp). and for myself, i have a sick passion for building as tanky as possible, so i prefer more the idea of q-ing enemies to death. it`s lock on and shields you, thus making for an easy kiting. also, i go for yellow augment most of the time for one reason: playing safe. i prefer to keep my ult until i can hit three or more people with it, so if i build less tankier, i might just get bursted before i get to actually cast that beast. oh, and i usually and up in bad positions :3



Viktor can be build quite tankier, yes. It's not bad, in fact, since his Q has a low CD and grants some shield. But maybe you're finding hard times building him burst/glass cannon because of your bad positioning, as you said for yourself. Try improving this point of your gameplay (since it'll make you better for all champions, not only Viktor) and then play him again focusing in dmg.

But, if you're having fun times playing him the way you do right now, then forget everything i said and keep the way you like! Don't do things because others do or say it's better. Find YOUR own way of gameplay and improve it!

Hey man!

I see and respect your point of view. For utility you mean Lux and Orianna right? Viktor can offer less utility than them both, it's a fact. But still, with a nice, heavy team with good amount of CC Viktor can shines like no other do, having both burst and some good utility too.

About his Q, in fact, it deals more flat dmg and has higher AP ratio, but causes less when you have his E upgraded, which makes it better for poke. Still, there are ocassions where it's better to lv his Q before his E.

And one question: you dislike my guide or the champion?

If, instead of Viktor, you're refering to the guide, i've already done some changes (runes mostly) and it'll be finished soon.

Glad to know you're having good times playing with Viktor! Yeah it's hard to deal with those Dianas. Some of them go for Nashor's Tooth but some go for Abyssal. It's really hard to beat them. Poke from afar and try not to engage her if you're alone or if she is full health.

Hey man great guide you have here. I decided I want to force myself to learn Viktor after underestimating him as Swain and getting destroyed. Still practicing in comps to get that Death Ray down and keep his ult bouncing, but I think I'm progressing well with your advice.

One thing I'd like to bring up: I don't know if you've had time to test it out, but now that Doran's Ring is cheaper, is it better to get that plus the two pots? Also, if you still went with the boots, which are cheaper as well now, would it be better to pick up a mana potion or another health pot?

Again, great guide, I'm excited to get better with Viktor.


Hey man! Thx for your kindness!

Yeah that's quite normal, people don't really know the true potential Viktor has and gets really surprised of how strong he is! Keep playing with him, his lazer is a little hard to master but once you do you'll have one of the strongest mages in the game, I assure you.

Yeah it's worth to come with 1 Doran's Ring and 2 red pots, but depends on your enemy mid/jungler. If they don't have hard CC like stun/snare/silence/knock airbone of a hard engage, go for it.

Truth is, I don't go with boots + pots anymore. With the arrival of Season 3, when champions have more Base Moviment Speed im going to lane with otehr itens (wards, more pots, Fairy Pendant...). I'll be redoing this guide soon, because i've gathered a lot more of experience and knowloedge and I feel that it can be greatly improved. Wait for it!

Cya bro! Keep playing with Viktor!

Good itemization I must say. Definitely deserves to be in the top 3.

I feel Power Transfer should have priority until you buy Augment: Death (that means 2 or 3 points). The reason is very simple: Death Ray is a mid game spell and it costs a lot of mana early on. Power Transfer has not only lower mana cost, but also lower cooldown and it is better to harass at first levels.

You also mention some items in your situational list that I would never consider buying them, such as Rod of Ages and Archangel's Staff. You could review some sections so your guide becomes more clean and easy to follow.

I like playing Viktor too, but I get so pissed when I miss a Death Ray that I don't play him that often. :) Well, keep it up!



Thx for your kindness bro!

Yeah there is some times when Power Transfer definitely is better than Death Ray. But since the MAJOR priority of this guide ir to get 1k gold ASAP and then run back to base and purchase your Augmentation to improve the lazer dmg i feel that the soon you maximize it, the better. I have NEVER, i mean NEVER, have problems maximizing it earlier. If you can land 2 or 3 lazers with the Augment: Death you WILL scare the **** out of your oponnent. It's a fact, i'm playing him since his release and it's always like this. Few people know Viktor well enough to know that once he gets his Augmentation he gets a HUGE power spike early/mid game and keep underestimating him. The CD and mana costs are higher, true, but it's worth, i assure you!

As for the Rod of Ages, it's a quite nice item on Viktor! I just don't like to build it because since he gets one less slot late game for itemization (duo to The Hex Core )I tend to get itens that provide both stats AND passive effects to complement that. But this is just my opinion and if you feel like building it, go for it! Archangel's isn't nice on him because you can't keep spamming skills like Nidalee, Ziggs, Ryze, Jayce, etc. so it would take forever to fill the item.

It's quite normal to miss some shots. Keep training it and it'll pay the effort. I too, miss a lot of them in the laning phase haha! The secret is, you have to shoot it in a way the oponnet will never expect the skill. The lazer speed is a little slow, so you need to catch your opponent off guard. I just don't know how many times i frustrate chasing enemies from keep chasing by landing those nasty backward lazers haha!! Remember: the skill doesn't have animation, so you can shot it the way you want without the need to stop to do it.

Good itemization I must say. Definitely deserves to be in the top 3.

I feel Power Transfer should have priority until you buy Augment: Death (that means 2 or 3 points). The reason is very simple: Death Ray is a mid game spell and it costs a lot of mana early on. Power Transfer has not only lower mana cost, but also lower cooldown and it is better to harass at first levels.

You also mention some items in your situational list that I would never consider buying them, such as Rod of Ages and Archangel's Staff. You could review some sections so your guide becomes more clean and easy to follow.

I like playing Viktor too, but I get so pissed when I miss a Death Ray that I don't play him that often. :) Well, keep it up!

Hey I really like your build, I started playing viktor about a month ago when my friend reccomended him to me and I really like him but i have been experimenting with builds trying to find one i really like...this is it. I played a lot of leblanc before viktor so i am used to the bursty playstyle. I agree with you on maxing the death ray first because you can out poke almost anyone and it becomes what I like to call "the minion eraser" as soon as you get its augment. my only question about it is that you say to build 7 items, you have the sorc shoes,the augment, rabadons,rylais,liandrys,void staff, and the lich bane? i have just been using the void staff but i was wondering if the lich bane was supposed to be situational or something. idk, anyways great build and good job with the guide


Sup bro!

Well all itens are situational. There is no "victory formula", you need to adapt to teh curret game you're in. So i put some itens that i normally go with, but ofc there is no way to have them all at once. Void Staff is for teams that are stacking MR. If they aren't go for Liandry's. Lich bane is a really nice item for burst dmg, but you need to see if it's worth in the match you're playing.

Thx for the cheering, and keep playing with Viktor more from now on!!




Srsly man. This guide is awesome. Epic damage !

Just went ranked with this. Bursting down people like butterflies. His mana problems are a bit nasty though. And last hitting isn't exactly easy.


That's what he do bro lol!

Yeah, he has a HUGE mana cost with E, it's kinda hard to manage his mana pool. As for LH i found it rather easy, but it's just a practice question.

man, i don`t like your guide. personally i see casters more like utility houses than bursters, and this role doesn`t fit viktor imo. it doesn`t suit my playstyle (his q curently deals more damage than e, albeit it has a worse scaling). again, this is my opinion.


Hey man!

I see and respect your point of view. For utility you mean Lux and Orianna right? Viktor can offer less utility than them both, it's a fact. But still, with a nice, heavy team with good amount of CC Viktor can shines like no other do, having both burst and some good utility too.

About his Q, in fact, it deals more flat dmg and has higher AP ratio, but causes less when you have his E upgraded, which makes it better for poke. Still, there are ocassions where it's better to lv his Q before his E.

And one question: you dislike my guide or the champion?

Great guide man :) It's purty awesome imo. Viktor players should take notice ;p

Few things btw, how do you feel about either:

A) Rushing an early Sheen :p

or

B) Crystalline Flask + Mana Potion + Sight Ward start? :)

I've used both with pretty modest success myself :3



Thx bro! Glad you liked it!!

A) Sheen isn't a bad item, even more if you're aiming for a Lich Bane. But the effectiveness of this item tends to be better when you get more AP, so if you're doing it too earlier you won't be causing that much dmg.

B} Not a bad idea at all. I'd just trade this Mana Pot for Health Pot for a lil bit more sustain in lane. Place the ward wherever you think their jungler will come from and kill CSs being on that side of the lane, since you can see if anyone is comming or not (the other side doesn't have a ward right?), so ganks won't be so hard to deal.

Regards!

Cálice não é ruim não. Principalmente depois que você completa o Athene's Unholy Grail (que não sei o nome em pt). Mas veja essa questão de spammar skills na lane, pois nem sempre é uma boa idéia.

Thx man!
Yeah, you can't sell your Hex Core. The item setup is there just to show what itens you can/should do, but not necesarilly in that order. You have to adapt yourself to the matchup you´re having.

As for Lich Bane, i usually do it {when i do it} lastly.

Thx for your kindness!

Yeah, sometimes Rilays pays off more than a early Rabadon's. You have to take in consideration your matchup in lane and some other factors like who is their jungle, do i need more resistance or HP, etc.

As for Master Yi, it's really a pain to face him at mid. What you have to do is poke him down to something like 50~60% Hp before you burst him down. Also you can initiate a fight with him BUT don't use your ultimate too soon. Wait for him to cast Meditate and then casr your ultimate since it will cancel his skill. Or just land a Gravity Field on him for the same purpose. Another good way to counter him is getting Morellonomicon, since it will halve his healing effects once he is low in HP.



Oh, and thx buphmin for answering some questions bro!!

Yi can be a little tricky for viktor if played well since our stun doesnt work on him during his ult. When going for the kill try to make him low enough so you can just full burst straight to death. Also ignite reduces his meditate by half which can help in getting a kill. Until you are very comfortable with the damage you deal its best to just harass and farm and wait for a gank instead of risking feeding yi which is a horrible exerpience.

Also i like to try to be a little mellow about pushing the lane as his snare with a jungle gank is very bad. At least until you are ahead by a kill or two.

True, but I think that Viktor can still beat Ryze even though without going back. Your technology is deadlier than his magic!


Perhaps i was confusing in what i wrote. I meant to imply that ryze is generally an easy matchup for viktor because of how much his laser outranges everything he has. That doesnt mean ryze cant win, but it is difficult for him if done right. As most matchups with viktor it all comes down to how consistently you can land the laser. Agarol explains some nice ways to set up the laser so you hit more often and its very helpful.

over9000 | April 4, 2013 7:25pm
being both a huge fan of both malz and vik, I will have to say that a good malz ***** on a good vik simply because vik can't clear like malz does early game; and malz's call of the void has almost the same range and is just as easy to dodge. Not to mention that malz has a much higher burst and scaling. Vik only has an advantage during a team fight since most of his damage and cc is aoe and is easier to pull and malz depends on his team or crystal scepter to survive. Now if the malz or vik suck, they won't abuse their range and will have a habit of dying to the other. Now vik's only problem is that if he wants to stun multiple people and does not have a jarvin to help him he must get close to the battle to hit it, but his silence usually helps him get that close.

ozakip | April 2, 2013 7:04am
Great guide man - my only thing i would say is that perhaps you could talk about the other augments? Although I agree most of the time augment death is the best option, but the augment to increase your W range could be viable in some situations such as vs long range assassins with many gap closers, such as Vi/Jarvan IV.

Also, it may be worth mentioning getting a different augment vs galio, since DoT's just heal galio up reallly fast.

Plus i find Viktor very mana starved if he doesn't have chalice or blue buff, and I am generally building chalice most games now after sorc shoes, unless i'm stupidly ahead and can buy a needlessly large rod.

But otherwise i seem to agree with you on everything!
- here is a before and after picture attached - the first match before reading the guide, and the others after reading the guide. The change is quite dramatic :D

Love your guide, it really helped me understand how to play viktor, although it took awhile. I used to use athenes on him but realized its not that helpful compared to some other items. With a couple scaling mana regen yellows and some early dorans he has all the mana he needs. I have noticed lately that gravity well isnt very helpful early on. Ive been running lvl 1: pt, 2: DR, 3: DR, 4: PT and then at 5 getting gravity well. I feel having this extra damage early is actually better to prevent ganks as the enemy mid will have too low health to risk engaging. Thats my opinion at least.

Also, not sure if its mobafire or the guide, but the stats on liandrys torment changed to 2% hp per second for 3 seconds. Anyways, thanks for making all of us would be viktor players into glorious machines :D

Good guide! I`m going to buy him today! By the way, my main is Galio and trust me Galio can counter him very easy. Most of your damage will just heal him, especially your ultimate. I need 2 perfect harassment with Q afterwards I will do my combo: Flash R>Q>E and your dead(unfortunately I don`t use ignite, It may save u`re ***). And I wouldn`t be afraid to push you out of the line, coz you can`t do anything to me(the ONLY insecure situation for Galio would be : out of mana( super mana hungry) and ganks.!

Voted! :)

Very funny to use viktor when jarvan is your enemy. Also viktor is also fun at dominion. Can you make a dominion guide for viktor? Its pretty fun to use him in dominion because of the narrow passages in the middle. Once I played viktor at dominion, I was able to be the top and manage to finish the game without deaths!



Indeed, Jarvan's ult and Victor's synergizes very well together. Even with Jarvan being at the enemy team!

I can do, but only if more ppl asks for it too. I have a lot of work to doo on my own, and i don't play a lot of Dominion games myself.



I used this guide and loved it, making only a few slight modifications myself.

First, I'm at a low Elo and rarely get blue from my jungler. What did I do? Built Athene's. This item solves any mana needs and still provides good AP along with some MR. I think it's still a good optional item for the player who spams his skills (like me XD).

Second, I think getting Rylai's before Rabadon's is better, as health is good for if you're caught off guard and the slow is great. Plus, Rabadon's' passive works better with more AP. (Also, I build Athene's before Rabadon's.)

But yeah, aside from these things, excellent guide. Definitely deserves the top spot.


First of all thx for your kindness!

Yeah i sometimes too get Athene's first, mostly in a lane where my enemy pushes too fast. I can stay for very long time too and push it back, so he can't feel free to roam in other lanes. Another option is to get 2 or even 3 Doran's Ring.

Also, sometimes Rylai's really works better early. More Hp helps A LOT in lane phase, but the item's passive is godly, since makes ganks from your jungler easier and your ult keeps him forever in it's range!

Adapt the guide to you, don't adapt yourself to the guide! Make any changes you feel necessary, just keep playing with Viktor from now on!! =P

Haha thx man! Yes, Viktor is truly outra... sry (that's another guy..), a truly MONSTER. He has a VERY high burst dmg, great utility in teamfights and even out of them. I can't understand why he isn't played more often!!

But i'm glad that smart guys like you discovered his potential, and will be playing with him from now on!

I made an account just so I could post on this.

I wanted to say, I love this guide, but I have one problem. Whenever I go against Talon, I get wrecked, no matter what, and you have nothing in here about versus Talon. I don't really play any other mid champs, so maybe I just suck against him in general, but there's got to be something I can do.


Thx for your kindness bro!

Nothing to worry about: i realy forgot about Talon since i don't see him really often at mid nowadays, so i'll include him in the right section ASAP.

When you face any AD at mid, you have to play safe. Even if it means lose some cs. It's better than giving a free kill for him, making your life and eventually your team's life harder. Start with Cloth Armor and x5 Red Potions. Upgrade your Cloth Armor into a Seeker's Armguard and you'll be safer for a while. Ask for ganks and stomp over the enemy's AD MID laner OR just outplay him in some way. And give your MIAs!

Fala cara! Obrigado pelo apoio, e fico feliz em saber que o guia lhe foi útil de alguma forma! Sempre que possível estarei atualizando o guia sim, principalmente quando novos champions vierem para o mid.

Obrigado pelo voto, e pode ficar à vontade para adicionar se quiser dentro do jogo! Só peço que jogue com Viktor com mais frequência de agora em diante e peça para seus amigos darem uma chance a ele!

I made an account just so I could post on this.

I wanted to say, I love this guide, but I have one problem. Whenever I go against Talon, I get wrecked, no matter what, and you have nothing in here about versus Talon. I don't really play any other mid champs, so maybe I just suck against him in general, but there's got to be something I can do.

I haven't posted on anything til now, just so I could say how amazing this guide is. I've been following the build and strategies with a few variations depending on match and I've just decimated. I never knew how deadly Viktor is and he is my main AP Caster from now on. Thanks for taking the time to instruct people on how to play him.

Glorious Evolution!

I used this guide and loved it, making only a few slight modifications myself.

First, I'm at a low Elo and rarely get blue from my jungler. What did I do? Built Athene's. This item solves any mana needs and still provides good AP along with some MR. I think it's still a good optional item for the player who spams his skills (like me XD).

Second, I think getting Rylai's before Rabadon's is better, as health is good for if you're caught off guard and the slow is great. Plus, Rabadon's' passive works better with more AP. (Also, I build Athene's before Rabadon's.)

But yeah, aside from these things, excellent guide. Definitely deserves the top spot.

Very funny to use viktor when jarvan is your enemy. Also viktor is also fun at dominion. Can you make a dominion guide for viktor? Its pretty fun to use him in dominion because of the narrow passages in the middle. Once I played viktor at dominion, I was able to be the top and manage to finish the game without deaths!

Thx for the info about LB dealing magic dmg instead of physical dmg! I'll redo it now.

As to me, the item seems pretty nerfed. It's not a bad item, but deals less dmg (from his passive), provides no MR, less mov. speed, less mana... It's cheaper and the passive dmg now takes into account MR and MPen, but still it seems nerfed to me.

Old Lich Bane vs. New Lich Bane

I'm curious about this champ. The only times I have seen him has been mid, but is it possible to stick him somewhere else? Such as support, solo top.. Before you, or anyone else, shoots this down I'd like someone to test it out. I will be conducting my own tests, but I'm just curious to see if anyone else feels this is possible.


He can be an very nice support too. Upgrade his hex core for his W (Gravity Field) and you'll have an GIANT range to cast it. Plus, he has an very nice poke with Q, that also gives him a shield, and his ultmate is very nice since causes a lot of dmg, silences for 0.5 secs (it can be usefull against MF, for example) and DoT too.

Othe than this i'm not sure he can be at any other lanes. Well, since he is a monster pusher once he gets his Augment: Death he could do very nice at top too, if he plays smart and safe.

You can try to do him a jungler, but.... lol, it would've been a LITTLE BIT hard. But if you get his Augment: Gravity and do well in the jungle you could perform some really nice ganks (or you could get the Augment: Power upgrade for the mov speed given whenever you cast Q to stick to the oponnent or travel in the jungle faster). His Q gives him shield and has low mana cost and CD, so with some help you could do fairly well.

I'm not entirely sure. The times i used Gravity Field on a ulted Yi his speed didn't let him get stunned, but i don't know if it's because he didn't stayed long enough for the stacks to complete or because his ultimate literally inutilizes Gravity Field on him. I'll try to figure something ingame.

Take a look at his lore and you'll figure it out xD
No idea, since i never used smartcast before xDD

Nice guide man! Quick question, why not use the ult first for the silence and the DoT? Also, boots plus one health pot and two mana bots means more pokes with the laser and less damage taken from enemy poke. Just what i start if i am confident in Viktor's laser poke.


It's a nice idea to start your combo with your ult to maximize the DoT, but in some of the moments i tried this the enemy midlaner flashed ASAP because of the burst dmg caused. So either i missed the lazer or couldn't use his Q or even Ignite =/

Just start with whatever makes you confortable. Don't adapt yourself to this guide, adapt the guide to your personal use! =P

I have a few questions, the first being, seeing as you've tried many item combos to get to this build, have you given any thought to making a substitute build focused on Viktor's Q? When i play viktor, the speed boost from the q augment helps me keep up with my enemies, making the stun easier and more surefire to stun, and the shield is great for preventing damage! with a focus on damage and durability as a whole, i find viktor is much harder to kill and the fact that the q will always hit makes it a bit more reliable, not to say that Death ray is inaccurate, i just find more assurance in keeping up with my opponents to get a guaranteed hit with it. not to mention q cost a lot less to cast, making it ideal for staying in lane, and it's base damage is better.

Question 2, there is a lack of durability in your build, aside from the health from the rylai's. how does this affect you? do you solely focus on poking with your E? isn't that kind of a waste of your other skills?

anyway, it's a very good build and i look forward to using it while viktor is free, as i have yet to purchase him, for some reason it's always slipped my mind.


1- Yeah, there's some guys asking for a second build, focused on his Q. I i'm really thinking in doing it, for three motives: first, it seems that Power Transfer will get a very nice buff soon. It will give a shield based in the lv of the skill PLUS a shiled based on the dmg dealt (like it is now). So this buff will give Viktor a MAJOR presence in lane, since he will be able to tarde dmg without too much worries. Second, i tried a suggestion from a Viktor player of a build focused on his Q that is SO MUCH FUN and yet really effective! And lastly i want this guide to be even more extensive and hit everyone's taste, so that Viktor can be seen more often and repected as the powerfull mid ap-carry he is!

2- Nah, not a watse. I'll poke as much as i can and my team will try to engage a fight. Then all my otehr skills will shine. And yes, there's some lack of durability in the guide, but this is a burst guide, so it mainly focused on dmg, BUT! you can adapt the guide to your playstyle, so feel free to be a little more tankier if you like or the match requires it!!

You what? PURCHASE VIKTOR AT ONCE, YOU DAMN FOOL! >:( So you can join our glorious evolution!!!

Dodge her "ball throw", then hit her with Q > E. She'll shiled herself, but she can't do this forever. Extra carefull when she has blue and hits lv6. Poke her from afar, win hard and get *****es.

Very lucky because of my team, all had slows/cc of sorts. massively destroyed them. anyway, great guide so far!

Pretty nice scores you got there sir! And thank YOU for giving Viktor a chance to prove he's worth the price! =P

I agree as well. Doran's ring for my belief is better. Having the seal runes(combined) granting him 3 or more mana regen every 5 seconds. Also with the meditation at lvl 3 and the doran's ring, you have 9 mana regen or more. It could refund a lot of death ray which is lvl 1 or 2 but not enough for lvl 3 or higher. Isn't this a good item for early game?


Doran's isn't a bad item to start with. I just feel a safer starting with boots and pots, because of ganks, and aggro from the enemy mid... But don't feel restricted by this guide: adapt it to your needs and preferences! =P

Great guide. I was visiting it from beginning and today created account to post. :D Everything is ok, but I think that Liandry's Torment should be after Deathcap, because with Gravity Field it applies full extra dmg. Does it work with stun also, or only with slow?

P.S. It's enough to play safely and there will be surrender before you can even buy Rylai's Crystal Scepter. Viktor OP ^^


I'm pretty sure it's stuns, snares, suppressions and slows. Anything that affects movement, as far as I know.

And yeah, maybe you could build Haunting Guise before starting your Rilay's, but i don't know if an earlier Liandry's pay off. I mean, your combo doesn't rely on Gravity Field to work, so you won't do the double dmg from the item's passive effect. You'll just cause ****loads of dmg and the burning effect of the item won't be even perceived. But if you're already having teamfights a lot, then maybe then Liandry's would be nice, since you start with Gravity Field on the battle...

va very nice guide, the best one ive seen
i didnt miss any letter a few to almost no writing mistakes.
the only thing i can say which is lessgood is the way you histroy works out with your writing
a example:
you change starters items to boots and pots
and later in the guide it says, now buy you boots and if possable tier 2 boots

but in geniral the best viktor guide ive seen
i know my writing isnt prefect either :P

Bad idea IF they're stacking MR, even more now after the recent changes on Magic Penetration and Magic Reduction. If they aren't building MR, go for it. I do think this is a GODLY item for Vik. I'll have to test it, but toguether with Rylais your lazer and ult will be monstrous with the passive effect of Liandry. With your lazer you'll be doing a poke VERY strong, and with your ult... well, lol, they'll cry tears of blood!! >:D

I tried this build for my first game ever as Viktor.

I hate Doran items, so of course I modified it a little bit.

I took

boots + 3 pots --> Augment --> Sorc Shoes --> Rylai's --> Rabadon --> Void Staff --> Lich Bane

Was against a Brand in the middle, which started off a little rough since I'd never Viktor'd.

End game stats:

It's a very good build but for masteries I go for 21/0/9, pretty much the same but for Utility I get swiftness instead of meditation and scout (I don't really see the point of have scout, some people might now have very good map awareness like me xD) and for seals I have mana regen per level
For this at early game I have a little movement speed boost so I dodge some skill shots and for mana regen per level is aimed for late game as Viktor will be using a lot of E to poke people but I guess it's my personal taste. For the sixth item it's quite hard for me decide what item to get, usually I would go for something defensive like abyssal scepter but I guess I should try out the lich bane (but it's quite harder to get because of the gold =/)

Hello! Just read your guide, nicely written, lots of good explanations.

To the point: if I comment here, it's because I noticed a mistake (if it has already been reported, I'm sorry, didn't check the 130+ comments...).

In the Items section, you say that Rylai's slow stacks with his Gravity Field's slow, but it actually doesn't. It is specified in Rylai's description that the slow procs on your spell's damage. Since Gravity Field doesn't do any actual damage by itself, the slow does not proc.

Still a highly valuable item on Viktor, but this should be rectified.



Thx a lot man for the info, i'll rectify right now!!



Got a question. Max Power Transfer has a 5 second cooldown. If you max out cdr, you can get that shield every 3 seconds. This would not be a purely offensive build, in fact, probably more tank thank mage, but could this be viable for a different role?


Leveling Power Transfer earlier instead of Death Ray is better in some cases. If you're facing an extremely agressive champion, like Leblanc for example. Since she needs early kills to stomp mid-late game, she'll try to harass you a lot and finish you off if she has the chance. So, every time she dashes towards you, Q her right away so the shield will proc and halve the dmg from her burst a little. She'll be more hurt than you eventually and be a good girl. And be aware that she'll start ganking to get what she couldn't in the mid lane. =)



pls complete the list : champs that can give Viktor hard times (: its very usefull , but not all the mid champs are on the list


I'm always adding new champions to the list, so stay tuned! =P

I would love to see a few variation builds in here though. You can't always get away with going as a squishy caster, because of certain instances where you are faced with an assassin mid. Also, you say in your item build that Athene's Unholy Grail might be good enough to replace an item in the guide! Which one do you consider the most replaceable?
Hopefully this feedback helps your guide. Best,
Steven


Thx for your kindness!!
The build itself can vary A LOT. It all depends on what you're facing, and this doesn't mean only the enemy ap carry at mid. Sometimes you have to prepare yourself againnt a enemy Top laner that are stomping like hell and you know it'll be a pain in the *** to deal with him. For example, when there's an Warwick as jungler in the enemy team i like to build a Quicksilver Sash for his nasty ult. Just use your own discernment to do what will help you most in that match, and what itens you can sacrifice.

As for Athene's Unholy Grail.. Well, you can have it agaisnt an hard lane pusher, like Gragas or Malzahar. If you're aiming for CSing a lot before going to fights, you can start with a Chalice of Harmony, since it gives an nice mana pool and some MR, then stay mid/Wraths Camp all day. Maybe you could replace it for Lich Bane, if you're willing to give up on those stats and are spamming skills like hell. It also depends on the match you're having.

Well, i should say that the most important thing to Viktor is to leave a good impression of the champ! xD
He has lots of potential, as the guide shows, to get ****loads of kills in ANY game, but he kinda gets TONS of assists too. You see, 3 of his skills are AoE =) so in team fights if you disn't kill anybody you'll most likely get 4 or 5 assists.



Voted for ya~~

First off great guide for Viktor. However, one thing I noticed about your guide was that u listed the death fire grasp as a potential item, but the recent patch has nerfed the item, so you should change the description of the item accordingly. The item is less GODLY then before.


Thx for the vote!

Yeah, DFG isn't what it used to be anymore... I personally don't like this item, so i don't really care, but it seems that in this newest Patch (in witch Nami and the HUDs changes will come) they'll change it again, to give you an increase of % in your AP for some time. If that's the case then it'll be a nice item to have, but i don't know if this info is true yet. Anyways, i'll redo the description of the item ASAP. Thx a lot!!

However, I would like to suggest that you add in some replays of full games, so that less-expereienced Viktor players(me) could learn about Viktor's positioning during teamfights, or learn how to fight his hard counters through video instead of just reading about it.

Thanks alot for this guide! :D

Well, i'll think about adding full games in the guide, but i can't promise anything =(. My PC is really old, and even those tiny videos i used in the guide were SO HARD to do!!

Anyway, I got question about runes . I was always playing AD Offtanks like Yorick, Riven, Renekton and AP/Tanks like Nautilus and Amumu, so right now, Im playing Viktor with those runes :) ( Mainly armor,armor penetration etc.). So Viktor is my first AP Champ ;).
Anyway, I was thinking about Glyph runes to buy "Greater Glyph of focus", -0.65% CD.I think that using Viktors abilities more often could do much more damage in mid and late game and make his more deadly! Seal runes I would put mana regen. Quaintence runes I will use 2.18 magic penetration.
So , pls tell me what do you think about CD runes in combination with Mana regen , and magic penetration runes. Does that work ? Thanks and cheers mate ;)


Sup bro!
I'm really glad to know that Viktor is your first approach to AP Carriers!! Keep playing with him and you'll never forget! Hahaha!
As for the CDR runes for Viktor, well it isn't really bad. I don't think it'll have a great impact early game, since you're aiming for CS, and late game you can always get blue buff/pot. Mana regen is always nice for him, since he's kinda mana hungry. But the best way for playing with Viktor is your own way! You should try those ruens and see the results for yourself. If you feel confortable with them, then that's it! =P

Hey, when laning , you should cripple a lot. Then when your opps is on low hp, consider doing some action or cripple more, like Flash + Q +E and that should be enough against some AP Champion. Literally, everything you do is cripple with Viktor when laning .
In mid and late game ( teamfights ) , you should stay somewhere behind and shoot your E and R. Your Ulti can benefit your team a lot in teamfights, great following damage and 0.5% of turning off abilities. Also if you have a tank in team like Malphite or Amumu which can stun, after they stun you should put your W beneath your enemies and shoot them with Q+E+R . With 400 AP ( which is easy to get on Viktor ) Q+E+R combo should kill most of your enemies, if you hit them right ofc.

It seems better to max q first. It's better to harass with in lane since it costs less mana with a lower cd and is garenteed to hit. Ontop of that it has better trades since it gives that shield. His e only seems better when you need long range poke or want to push waves faster.

The use of mana regen/flat is because Vik hungers for mana early game IF you're using a lot of skills. Late game you can kil a creep wave basically with one Death Ray, so there's no real need for an increasing amount of mana regen.

Recently discovered Viktor and really like him. But there's one champion I really miss in the counterpick section: Katarina. Once she reached level 6 her burst damage is very high and your shield doesn't travel fast enough to protect you from a shunpo/sinister steel combo. She also can dodge the Death Ray without troubles. Since she is one of the more often played champions and for me definitely on a level with LeBlanc but with AoE, I'd like to see something of you against her. :)


Katarina is no big deal. Really. The main problem with her is her Shumpo, that can make you miss your Death Ray and Chaos Storm. If you're having trouble in hitting you lazer, lv 2 or 3 lvs of Power Transfer and hit her whenever possible. She'll be more friendly. Also, keep your ult with you. Once she blinks to you and use her ultimate, use your W then R onto her and she's done for.

Thx for remembering that there's no Katarina in the counterpick sec. I'll do it ASAP =D

If I'm snowballing I'll take deathcap first, otherwise it's normally a rylai's.

  • Viktor's Power Transfer deals a HIGHER BASE DAMAGE than Death Ray early game (at level 5, with 3 points in power transfer. you will out damage your enemies, guaranteed).
  • Power Transfer is a targeted spell, meaning that you can't dodge it. If the opponent knows his stuff, you will rarely hit Death Ray as a harass, and just waste mana as your opponent whittles you down and murders you. Death Ray also has a longer cooldown and a higher mana cost.
    With greater seal of replenishment, you can basically spam Power Transfer as much as you want (on a ~8 to ~4 second cooldown).
  • Power Transfer makes you excruciatingly deadly mid game, while death ray doesn't become great until level 13, when you've maxed it. Death Ray still deals about 100-135 damage at rank 2, and, coupled with the 300-450 damage you will do with Power Transfer, will absolutely melt that AD carry's 1000-1200 health.


I understand and really see the advantages in leveling PT first, but my gameplay revolves in hitting and don't being hit. PT has lower CD, mana cost and higher base dmg, but you have to approach to use it. SO MANY TIMES i did this and got out-nuked rly hard =( I wrote an section about this question in the guide, so take a look at it (if you didn't already).

Your opinion and arguments are valid, it's just that I feel confortable playing like this, and have never got real problems in leveling DR over PT (instead in the cases i cited in the guide too, AKA Leblanc and Kass), in fact, i can harass very well while CSing and being harder to get ganked.


I have a question about Viktor countering someone. Well this time two people, one game I had an Anivia and Morgana mid. I was wondering how would you counter that?


Good for me (and for the viewers of this guide!) that you made this question, since Anivia isn't listed in the cap that refers to the champions Viktor can face mid (seems like i forgot LOL). I'll make it ASAP. As for Morgana, she is there, so take a look.

Thanks for pointing me to this beast of a champion. I've yet to lose mid with Viktor (even against a LeBlanc and Morgana). I have a few tips for people having trouble with laser positioning. If the start of the arrow is outside of the circle, viktor will move until the edge of the circle hits where the start of the arrow was. To shoot it max range without moving at all, position the beginning of the arrow on the edge of the circle, and prepare to hear your opponent whine about your range. Also there's a point inside the circle (usually about halfway, maybe a bit more) that when you shoot your laser, it looks like its shooting it straight down, but it actually travels further (underground i suppose?) than where it shoots and will hit your opponent. You can't do it max range like this (or hasn't worked yet at least) but its great for when they want to get to close and because they can't see it, dodging is very difficult. May have something to do with the angle as well, but regardless, still a useful trick.

Pretty basic, but figured it might help some people =]

A lot of times, at that point in the game, people will have a great deal of health. If you have the lich bane, you can finish them off, or wait two seconds, Q, and basic attack. It'll work every time. It allows you to secure all of your kills.

So rumble ultimate is good practice for viktor general and viktor is good practice for rumble ultimate :)

What do you think of Deathfire Grasp on Viktor? I just tried it a few games, and I gotta say I love dat burst.


I think Deathfire Grasp an awesome item for Viktor. I just don't use it because i like to poke with lazors till a point where i can just burst him with the rest of my skills gaining the kill. Another point is that in team fights i roam a little and when the champions engage just release Chaos Storm and Lazors, so i can't use the active effect of DfG in a propper way. But i have to test this item more times with Viktor. Should work nicely like: DfG > Chaos Storm (to prevent enemy from fleeing a lil) > Power Transfer > Lazor



I bought Viktor about a month ago and have used this guide to learn him, truly an amazing champion. Definitely my favorite by far. Just a suggestion, I think an Athene's Unholy Grail would go nicely with the build instead of a Void Staff, I don't see many people build MR nowadays, just a thought. It also has some nice CDR and amazing mana regen if you want to constantly spam your abilities, allowing for a lot of damage throughout long team fights.


Well yeah, Unholy Grail is very nice for Viktor. But at rankeds you'll see that most of times champions at mid tend to have flat MR runes and if you're dealing a lot of dmg they'll build MR itens. Also, i like to help more in teamfights, so causing more dmg to those Tankers/Offtankers is really nice!

Thx guys, i'm really happy to see that more and more ppl are enjoying playing Viktor with the help of this guide!




A lot of times, at that point in the game, people will have a great deal of health. If you have the lich bane, you can finish them off, or wait two seconds, Q, and basic attack. It'll work every time. It allows you to secure all of your kills.



Yeah, this is one of the points in purchasing LB. You see, this is a Burst Viktor's guide, and LB is really necessary to fulfill this task. BUT the passive of the item aren't the only thing that makes me purchase it. It gives you a lot of AP, so your other skills will hurt more too, more mana, so you can use more skills, a nice MR and MOVEMENT SPEED, cause Viktor is a slow champion.

Just later game i'm not so sure about Lich Bane.

Earlier in the guide you stated that Viktor relies on you using all of your abilites as fast as you can, and the utility of Lich Bane comes from spreading out your attacks, completely removing his burst potential if he wants to make use of Lich. I have tried replacing it with a zhonya's, but I'm sure there are more viable items out there for late game Viktor than Lich

Fantastic guide, great videos and strategy discussion. I love the aggressive playstyle this guide promotes. My first game I went 7-3, and absolutely dominated a Fizz mid. Next game, I went bot lane with a GP against Sion/Darius, and went 15-3. Great stuff, keep it up. Stay classy.

First, let me say: THANK ALL OF YOU WHO APPROVED MY GUIDE! I'm really happy to know that there are ppl using and enjoying Viktor with the help of this guide!



Two quick things. Firstly, ATHENE'S UNHOLY GRAIL!!! I grab it right after the rabadon (I pick void staff depending on the enemies) because it fixes Vik's problem with the early game need to last hit! Since you can spam your E more often, you get lots and lots of creep kills! I grab the crystal sceptre right after the grail, since I have more money and the game is well into mid (unless you are fed), which is really when you need the slow. I build the grail from the chalice of harmony (nice MR and the mana regen let's you worry less about mana issues). Did I say these things were gonna be quick? lol I lied. Secondly, I would suggest to upgrade spells like so: 1 - power transfer 2 - death ray 3 - death ray 4 - gravity field.... The reason for this is quite simple. It doesn't take long to become level 2, and at level 1 power transfer deals more damage than death ray & applies a shield. This has two effects: 1) you will deal more damage and be more tanky 2) since you will do this at melee range of the enemy, they will be pushed back (if you do this correctly) and you will get an early zone and, you guessed it! More money for you! Not to mention that p.t. has a lower mana cost, which is extremely beneficial. Just two things to keep in mind! For the rest, congrats on your guide, somehow I upvoted twice!


Well, Athene's really a nice, almost godly item for Viktor. Sometimes i build it when i'm facing burst champs {i start with Chalice of Harmony and then, if necessary ill go for an abysal sceper).

And yeah, sometimes starting with one point Power Transfer just makes ALL difference. I rly dislike to face Champs like LeBlanc at mid, so one or two points in power transfer proved to be THE COUNTER for fer burst, since you cause a chunk of dmg at her and a portion of her dmg are absorved by the shield you gain with the skill. I'll update my guide asap about this question. Thx A LOT for your wise suggestions!

[...]"
In above fragment u have 165 dmg, should be 145 (100AP*0,65+80=145) and 58dmg shield.

This chapter "Why i prefer Death Ray instead of Power Transfer" is inconsistent.
You should give more reliable arguments.
"The range for this skill isn't that long, so you will put yourself in a hard situation just to use it on your enemy. You can AND WILL be countered, and probably being more hurt than him..."
It's all about dmg exchange between two heroes in lane.
"Viktor blasts an enemy unit for 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 (+65% of ability power) magic damage, returning 40% of the damage dealt as a shield for 3 seconds."
You can count Power transfer as (at 1 lvl) 80 dmg and 32 temporary health(shield's temporary health is calculated from dmg of your power transfer before dmg reduction from ennemy's magic resist is applied).
On damage exchange u will deal 80 dmg, and receive for example (annie disintegrate lvl1) 85 dmg.
Next u will hit her with your autoattack for 52 dmg and receive the same amount but diminished by your temp health, so 20 dmg.
In whole dmg exchange u will deal 80+52=132dmg, and receive 85+20=105dmg.
This will get hurt your opponent (annie) for 27dmg more than u and u will win this small encounter.
Doing so every 9s (1lvl char and so on lower cd and higher dmg differences) u will deal 180 dmg per minute more (on lvl 1! and increasing each lvl) to opponent (here annie) and outharas her.
(in this case: annie has lower disintegrate cooldown on low lvls (4s all) so she will try too burst u every time she can to get u hurt more, so u will need to avoid it by stepping aside a bit, but don't worry it's just 5s (and she will have to be near your minions if she zones u, so when u use your Q and autoattack tactics, she will get even more hurt by minions))
This text above is just about Viktor's Q, and doesn't involve rest of skills in calculations here, it's just an example to show that Agarol, your comparison of Power Transfer and Death Ray is very subjective.
I hope u will keep that in mind and maybe try to rewrite this section.


I wrongly understand what you said at the first post, so sry about it.
And about what you said yeah, sometimes Power transfer are worthy to lv a lil before DR, as i said above. I'll update my guide about this soon, and ty for the info you gave!



Hey Agarol, +1 awesome guide. I am going to be working on a viktor guide of my own and wondered if you'd like to discuss strategy, viktor player to viktor player. :D


Thx bro,im seeing your guide here, and it seems pretty versatile! I'll +1 it right nao! Yeah, would be pretty nice if we could discuss about some things. I am myself aware that my guide is not flawless, and with some help we can both improve our guides to make our beloved Viktor a champion more picked and feared from now on! I'm always learning more when playing with him, and trying new things to make life easier against heavy counters like LeBlanc and Ahri. I'll update when possible.

ALL WILL SOON CHANGE!

I agree with all of your philosphy/item/runebuilding and stuff. However an alternate skill order to consider? What about Powertransfer-dr-pt-dr-dr-Cs-dr-Gf-dr-pt-cs-pt-pt-gf-gf-cs-gf-gf
My reasons for this are The mana cost is so much better for last hitting aside from auto attacks as well as much cheaper harrass untill level five where the death ray damage starts to get better as a factor of its manacost. You still have 3 deathray by level 6 able for really good burst under your chaos storm. Gravity Field not till eight becuase its just not that good for a 1v1. Granted it might save from a gank or something but again its mana cost is prohibitive outside of one or two uses untill the end of the laning phase,where that skill point in the extra power transfer allows for a stronger(ish) shield and more damage. MOAR BURST! its also slow and easily avoided and the stun is too slow, by the time the enemie IS stunned youll have nailed him with all of your skills. Thoughts on this?

I want to start off by saying, I love Viktor. I bought him release day, (with skin bundle, of course) and was disappointed to see that, even now, no one plays him. However, I have used your guide for a long time.

I do want to add a small point. Morgana is easy to kill in Mid, if you can manipulate her, properly. The easiest way I have found to do it is dodge her snare, then gravity field her. She will (Usually) use her black shield. All I do then, is wait for her shield to leave, and go about killing her like normal.

Other than that, thank you for having such a great guide.

This is a great build. :) Still getting use to Viktor but I would like to know how to counter Xerath. I was having problems against him and ended up 0/2 one game because I couldn't kill him. Also I would like to know how to counter AP Yi and Lux? I had a game with them and they would switch places every so often. Lux wasn't all that bad but it was mostly Yi since I couldn't figure out how to take him. Any help would be useful, thanks. :D


to counter xerath and lux just get shoes as early as possible. You can move while you cast the lazer, so you should be able to dodge their shots. Once he is in tower mode you want to plop the field around him to stop his extra speed as he tries to escape your burst. Then calmly burst him. For lux same thing, except you might want to get a quicksilver sash if she's a huge problem. This will let you escape her snare. For AP yi simply zone him early game. Use your power transfer to push him back and poke him once he is back to force him to the nexus. USE GRAVITY FIELD.

Hello everybody! I wanna tell you about augments of death and augment of gravity. IMHO the gravity one is the best here, because squishy mage like Viktor mustn't come close to the nemy to CC the enemy, or he will die in most of cases. Also with this augment Viktor can stun champs that tried to blink/ghost away. Now let's compare this 2 augments using math:
Augment of Death:
45 ability power = 45/80 AP from Needlessly Large Rod(1600g) = 1600/80*45 =900g worth
And passive 30% more dmg for one spell
Augment of Gravity:
200 mana = 400g; 5 mana per5 = about 300g; 10% CDR: let's take Kindlegem (850g) it has 10CDR and 200 health. 200 HP is about 500g.
So augment of Gravity costs 400+300+350 = 1150 gold
Also this augment has an excellent passive which i mentioned above.
It's personal preference, but i just don't get it why all Viktors take only augment of Death?

It really depends on how you want to build him and who you are going against. This guide is a burst guide, and the lazor (intentional mistake :P) is better for bursting, as it deals more damage. Augment gravity is great for a support viktor, as it helps teammates escape, win a teamfight or secure a kill. You can use gravity offensively, to make sure the full damage output of your R is used, but if you burst on your enemies then it's likely that this will still be true (especially if you use it in teamfights). Augment power can be used to build a very tanky viktor (I speak out of experience :P) who can take loads of damage and still escape with the extra speed (lovely to escape yi or even hecarim). This can be useful to initiate teamfights, especially considering the low cooldown on the Q. Therefore, if you are missing a tank, and you feel that you want to fill in the role, go for augment power, obviously taking tanky items. If you wanna screw up the enemy team, take augment gravity. If you wanna melt down the enemy team in teamfights or a single player in a 1v1, go for this build.

Yeah, there are some bad sides in maximizing lazer first, but i still think it is a better idea to max it out asap, because the benefits you earn by doing this are far better and safer than maximizing power transfer sooner. I created a section in this guide showing what i think about this question, so please, if you didn't already take a look at it. And thx for your comment and opinion!

I Like you build i normally play viktor in dominion, but i like him in summonerss rift aswell. I just waanted to point out, from research that ive heard of and tried, your power transfer applies a sheild according to your potential damage, so it doesnt take into account magic resist :)

Used this, immediately started doing well with viktor. Thank you! Two things though... I have flat quintessences of AP is that fine anyways? Also, am I the only one who regularly gets a bugged death ray animation? Great guide!


It's a pleasure to know that you're doing well playing Viktor with this guide! It makes me really happy to know that it works well with other players!

Yeah, Flat AP Quint works well. Creeps do not have MR, so it'll be easier to farm in lane phase. I just prefer Magic Pen for the harass on the enemy champion.

And yes, i do got some bugs with his Death Ray, and i usually lost some cs on the incoming waves, even aiming perfectly. Some times the lazer passes throught champions and don't hit at all... Really frustrating. Some times the lazer animation does not work too, but the dmg still appear on the enemy too.. Riot's too lazy to fix these bugs -.- and there's even a thread in the forum about this..

Hello Bro, im really happy that you liked my guide! If possible, refer the guide to your friends and FORCE THEM to play Viktor from now on huehue xD

About the Quint, i prefer to use MPen Quint over Flat AP because it'll pierce the enemy MR, thus dealing more damage that if you just have a little more AP. But Flat AP is nice too, will help you kill creeps more easier since they have none or almost no MR. Will do more dmg on champs too, but since they can stack some MR will not be THAT great dmg, and this is why i prefer MPEN.

I play and build and viktor almost exactly the same way. It's really nice to see someone else who knows how to use the guy.

Btw, there's something I'm trying out and you might want to as well. Try rushing a deathfire grasp. I'm still working on how to fit it in around other items, but it gives CDR and Mregen which are great stats on viktor and it actually gives more single target damage than a deathcap, which you will end up building later anyway.


Hey man =)

Deathfire isn't a bad item for Viktor, if you're playing him as a burst (which is the case of this guide). But i don't usually rush this item because i'm more focused in team fights than soloing one enemy champ. Also, i'm always poking my enemies at far and safer distances, so the active skill from Deathfire will cause less dmg than it could cause in a full health enemy. But still, you can use it on their tanker, to cause a nice chunk of dmg and turn your team's work more easier, since their tanker will be low. The CD are really nice too, but sadly in the next Patch (Varus Patch) it'll lose its mana regen.

Thx for your comment and suggestion!

Really good guide since I use exactly the same runes, masteries (however I don't put points in havoc), skillorder and items lol.

The only thing I would suggest that you change is putting Zhonyas in your standard build as it's a great item and you will probably need it's armor vs lategame carries.
I voted it up!


Thx for your kindness and positive vote!

As for putting Zhonyas in the main itens choice its a great idea, since you got some nice armor, ap and a really usefull active skill. But, in my playstyle, i try to not enter any team fight untill the enemy team wasted some of their most powerfull nukes already, OR if is a 1x1 or even 1x2 if im ABSOLUTELY certain that i can get the kill(s) with my nukes. This means that i NORMALLY don't have any need for Zhonyas. But, if the enemy team are being smart and focusing me, i'll early build Zhonyas, like, just after Rylais, and sacrifice Lich Bane.

This is why Zhonyas aren't in the main item list. It's not like i don't like it, or think it's useless, on the cotrary, it's a godly life-saver. But i try to play as carefully as i can, dealing as much dmg as i can without dying - and even if i die, if i could leave their team wrecked, then my job is done and i can rest in peace haha..

Thx for your suggestion man! =D

Hands down the most annoying thing about this guide is that you beat me writing it. I was about halfway through writing it when I saw that you wrote nearly exactly the same thing I did.

The only recommendation I would make for the guide is can you write a section addressing the other two passive choices other then augment death. You can easily do this by adding an ability description section. like for example you could give the math on how much of an increase you get.

For example my assessment of augment power is to only take it when you NEED the extra little speed boost. I only find it useful in dominion where you need to have a bit more focus on survivability and the speed boost helps with escapes much more.

For augment gravity: I would recommend using that if you are on a high DPS team and you can afford to take a little less AP damage. The extra range is unreal and you can land the stun from the bushes. You could add some screen shots to demonstrate the range increase.

If you are interested I can just email you what I wrote for my section and you could post it.


Haha sry for making you waste yout time.. Even without knowing xD

Would be nice of you to send me what you've written. I was thinking of explaining the two other augments, but since this is a burst guide i just ignored then. But well, if is for the sake of having a more detailed and complete guide then it should be ok to do it =) And of course, you'll receive the proper credts for your work =P

I agree with your thoughts on the runes I actually run flat AP quints and glyphs on all my ap casters to keep people off me early game. I actually use to agree with you on maxing Power Transfer but after a lot of games with Viktor I have come to realize that Agarol is 100% correct. Power Transfer will nine times out of ten get you hit and hurt before the shield returns and the shield itself doesn't block enough damage to justify the risk. While Death Ray may not be a sure fire hit it is still incredibly strong when it does. In addition it's sure damage on minions with the bonus of damaging a champ. What this means is that it's never wasted until you are out of the laning phase. Last but not least lets not forget the Power Transfer has a lower AP ratio and the Damage isn't that much higher then the laser that could potentially damage an entire team.

I believe that the Augment: Death is very viable if you build it early. You are saying that there is no AP at the start of this build but you are ignoring the free Blasting Wand on steroids that is Augment: Death. I'd note that if you can build the augment early, to go with Augment: Death, if not I would take Augment: Gravity for the CDR and cast range.

Lastly I believe that items like Chalice of Harmony are often overlooked. The magic resist is actually kind of a big deal for 900 gold considering how much mana regen it provides. I use this item often on Galio because it solves my mana needs all the way till I replace it with something stronger. Sure I may lose a little money when I swap it for another item but it's performance till that point pays for itself. While challice may not be a stellar choice on Viktor it's not necessarily a bad one.


Exactly my point of view. Thx for the support =)

Very confusing and greater glyph of replenishment isn't even a good choice. Greater Quintessence of Magic Penetration is a poor option. Greater Quintessence of Ability Power is much stronger and gives you a lot of poking damage early game whilst scaling with Rabadon's Deathcap. Death Ray is not a reliable skill since its easy to dodge and has a high cool-down. Not a good option to max first. And Augment: Death isn't a good option either. Late game, it's worth as much as a Haunting Guise. You surely don't want a Haunting Guise 40 minutes in while everyone has a full build? You need some UTILITY! challace of harmony is a poor choice and is a big waste of money. The mana regen you get from it is mediocre and you'll have to sell it later on. Any decent player will be able to dodge a Death Ray, so using it as a poking tool is very indecisive. Power Transfer is guaranteed to hit and also hits really hard (while the shield blocks off any kind of counter-attacks the enemy is going to use). The guide itself isn't poor, but there needs to be some adjustments to it.

Also more reliable, deals more damage (since you're running very little AP early game) and is better at preventing counter-attacks as well. Since it'll deal more damage, you get more shielding. That means you won't take as much damage from ganks and your lane opponent. I myself do not run any mana upgrades and I still do fine in lane.

Oh, true, i forgot that catalyst the protector could be turned into Banshee's Veil. But Banshee are listed in this guide's situational items anyways, so.. And i don't recomend spamming skills. I myself don't do this, but new players of Viktor can have hard times hitting the enemy with Death Ray and the other skills, and thus feeling the need of more mana regen. Just a question of practice and how much aggressive he/she wants to be in lane.

Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration is really better than greater seal of replenishment, but just mid/late game. I use the second because it gives a solid mana regen EARLY game, combined with Doran's Ring and Meditation will let you stay more in your lane. Leveling Death Ray makes the cd lower too. The only thing that i agree with you in leveling Power Transfer earlier is the mana cost and CD, that is very low, compared with Death Ray. But still puts you in disavantage seeing that you need to come very closer to use it. Think of any champ you can face at mid: as soon as you approache then they'll retaliate you. Too risky, imo.

Oh, and i don't use Catalyst the Protector because i don't use Rod of Ages with Viktor. But it really gives some nice sustainability in lane.

I suggest you to try in-game my guide and, if you still didn't liked it, let me know and depending in how you did i can think in some way to improve it. But right now i am very confident in how well my build works in-game.

And thx for your comments and suggestions too! It's really good to receive nice, constructive criticism!

Mediocre mana regen? Did you see the passive Chalice of Harmony provides? And yes, you'll be selling later on, but the item will help you a lot if you purshase it, because you'll not need to return base so soon. It also provides some nice MR. So no, it's not a waste of money, imo.

For the sheet, i am very thankful to you. I just forgot to change the informations that i later put in my guide, and at the sheet was the old ones. Already changed for the correct ones!!

- As for the greater glyph of replenishment it provides a solid mana regen early game, that is when Viktor needs the most.

- I too used to think that Greater Quintessence of Ability Power was a better option for early pokes and even after, when combined with Rabadon's Deathcap, but the Magic Penetration Greater Quintessence of Magic Penetration provides is WAY better, because it bypass the Magic Resist any champion got, while the first one will have some his damage greatly decreased. It's the same as if you have 100 damage and the enemy has 50 armor, or if you have 80 damage, 31 armor pen and the enemy has 50 armor: you/ll be dealing more damage in the second example because the armor pen let you ignore some of his armor.

- The use of Augment: Death is well explained, as it let you poke your enemy even harder, creep really faster, combine well with Rabadon's Deathcap because it grants you more AP and synergize well with his Chaos Storm and Ignite. And with this i'm not saying that the other augments are useless or weak, just that Augment: Death is way more useful for this guide. Feel free to use whichever ou like more.

- But i have utility points, just the ones i think that will provide Viktor what he needs most: mana regen, mana pool, cd reduction for flash, more time with blue buff and wider view with wards. If i use more points in the Utility Tree ill be losing damage, and this guides revolves in the burst power of Viktor.

- The choice of using Death Ray instead of Power Transfer is well explained in the chapter "Why i prefer Death Ray instead of Power Transfer". I think the second one WAY less reliable, it gives a fairly poor shield and makes you very vulnerable for counters. Yes, hitting Death Ray in players with an average reaction time is hard, but if you use it from unexpected places, being unpredictable will make things hard for your enemy. Being hit some times will make him even more susceptible to the skill, cause he'll be afraid and nervous of it. It's still better than put yourself at risk to just use Power Transfer.

The guide itself isn't poor, but there needs to be some adjustments to it.

Excellent guide, it is very sad that there aren't many viktors out there, I am hoping that your build can help me improve my game with him.

Just a fabulous guide. Followed your guide and worked quite well indeed. Didn't tried it in ranked games, but i'm pretty confident it will do nicely.

Continue with the nice work man.
Gratz.

Very nice build, alot of details included. Just wondering, is it viable to get a lichbane on viktor? I know the burst is amazing but you have to be so close to utilize it in a fight. Where as if you got zhonya's, you'd be alot safer bombarding them from a range and they'd have to blow alot of cooldowns to catch you.



Thx for your vote man!! =)


I think it really pay off. When a team fight starts, after you use your skills you'll have to wait till your CD refreshes and you'll be "useless", so i start with chaos storm and death ray and do not use my power transfer. Viktor cause a nice damage aoe, so their team will scatter. You can hit the one thats dealing dmg or coming at your direction, use Power Transfer and hit him again and he will die or be very low. You'll be safe most of the time if your team is working properly.

Zhonya's is a very nice item, but you should use it only if you're getting focused a lot. It's listed in the situational itens.

Magnificent! So much videos and pics *-* so clear to understand haha. Just tried this build in-game and he really does SO MUCH DAMAGE! But still have to do some practice with the death ray lol.

But i don't know if that boots of cd reduction really is worth it, instead of sorcere's.


Thx man!

I'll try to add even more videos, so stay tunned! The better use of the Death Ray comes with practice, so it's ok. Just keep playing with him and you'll master it in no time.

I used to think the same, and really you sacrifice soma nice Magic Pen., but you got to use your skills more times, so it really pay off the sacrifice. But it's ok if you want to still got sorcere's.

+1 good guide

very nice coding and layout. would recommend you to turn on require comment to vote. dont really agree with your doran's ring starting item. IMO, i find boots + 3 pots much better. you have some really nice screenshots. for your runes and items, i think you should add in a situational items section.

keep up the good work!



Right away sir! Thanks for your opinion and vote too. Much appreciated!

But Viktor starting with boots and pots isn't even in my dreams haha. I try, at early game, to not pass from the half of the map, since i can harass from from a safe distance, and even if i do, i return asap. Not saying isn't worth, just don't fit my playstyle and needs. But i'll add it as situational items =).
