Hello, my name is Zanular and as you can see above that this is a guide on Viktor, the most recent Champion. This guide is how i play Viktor. Viktor is most efficient on mid.
Viktor can be very usefull in team battles because he can stun and slow enemies in an area and then put a lazer + chaos cloud on them. It will result in alot of Area Of Effect damage, making all Enemy champions lose alot of damage in just a few seconds.
In the begin of the game you should take Death Ray, this way you can keep enemy on a distance and if you time it right also deal damage to them. This way the enemy mostly goes back to regen health and u get an advantage in levels. What i recommand is that you stay in mid untill u have 1200 or more gold, then go back to base and buy Augment: Power (The yellow one). after that you should focus on getting gold fast for Rod of Ages which will give you arround 3000 hp on level 18 if obtained somewhere near level 11-13.
Mostly Viktor doesn't make the last killing strike, but gets many assists.
I choose Death Ray to begin with, because it can keep enemy's on a distrance which you would need because it is most recommanded to stand on mid lane untill you have 1200 gold. After Death Ray i choose Power Transfer, this is because when the enemy is about to hit you you can always use it on a minion or the enemy to get a shield of the damage done and block the enemy damage.
On level 4 i choose Gravity Field. Because if a jungler come in you can always defend yourself.
As i said before in this guide, Viktor is an incredible team player. With his Gravity shield he can stun multiple enemy's. Then put a Death Ray over that area and finaly his Ult a Chaos Cloud dealing damage on use and then following enemy's while dealing damage. If you are still close with Viktor you can use your Power Transfere spell to Get a Speed buff and follow the running enemy's (and if there is a chance use Ignite).
The reason i choose this purchase order is because you will need alot of Ability Power but also some hp and armor to survive in team battles.
The best Passive in a while. Hexcore gives`+3 ability power each level and grants 3 diffrent staffs which you can buy for 1200. The 3 diffrent Hexcores are: Yellow (+3 ability power per level, +220 hp and gives the ability "Power Transfer" a speed boost increasement of 35%. Red (+3 ability power per level, +45 ability power and gives the ability "Death Ray" a burn over time bones to every enemy hit by the lazer). Blue (+3 ability power, +200 mana, 10% cooldown reduction, 5 mana over 5 seconds and give the ability "Gravity Field" 30% more range to be cast.
This spell is most efficient with the yellow staff, which increases movement speed by 35%. other then that it is a very handy spell to use when fighting with enemys shielding yourself with the amount of damage you have brought on the enemy. Most recommanded to use when chasing an enemy down a lane (use on minions if nessesary).
This ability has many uses in the whole game. Lets start with explaning what it does. When this spell is cast there will appear a purple area on the ground slowing and after 1 sec stunning the enemy's within it. Starting at level 4 you can use this spell to counter act Junglers or gankers coming from the bushes in mid lane. Later in the game you must use this spell to either block the way which enemy will come from if you don't want to engage them or to gank them, now there are 2 ways to use it as a gank. 1: If the battle is 3v3 or more then put it in the middle of the group, stunning all the enemys and giving a great advantage to the team and yourself. 2: Place it between 2 enemys Forcing them to split up and you have an easy kill (if not 1on1).
One on my Favorite. Death Ray is a lazer beam which has about the same range as when Xerath uses his beam with his ult on. This spell however requires alot on training to master its course. As you have to hold your mousebutton to aim it, after the button is released so is the laser. This spell is most usefull to keep enemys at a proper range in early game. And in mid game its handy to chase the running enemys. Meaning when you used your Power Tranfer speed buff you are able to slay them with the laser.
Mostly Burst damage. When this spell is cast it will do alot of damage to the enemys in the circle of it, then following the enemy with a damage over time lightning strikes (if close enof). You can control the cloud. By press R the cloud with go to the location of your cursor but please notice that the furter away you are from the cloud, the slower it will move. This ability is best use either in group battles to do much damage to all enemys or on solo kills when combines with all other above abilitys give the enemy a Veigar like feeling.
