Introduction

I'm quite new to this game, patched up a quick build for a character i honestly really like, seeing a lot of people using him, decided to make a guide, it may not be the best, so dont be mad please :( anyway, i really enjoy using this character although im not the best with him, nor amazing with him.

Runes/ Summoner Spells

I've decided to choose Health, and Armor Runes since obviously he's a tank. I chose Heal, Flash for my spells, I chose Heal so i can not only Heal me, but my ally's if their low on health, I choose Flash, although you could choose Ignite and Flash if solo top, but i would rather go top with someone, so we can kill easier.

Items

I choose Health/Armor items since he's a take obviously. Since Warmog's Armor stacks, Its a good decision to get 2 since it gives you almost 1 thousand health.The other stuff is pretty basic items, I didn't choose to get Boots because Volibear doesn't really NEED boots at all... If your really despite for boots, instead of getting Aegis of The Legion, get boots after your first Warmogs, and get either Ninja Tabi if you're going against mostly AD, and choose Mercury Treads if your against most AP. I'm not a good explain-er, so hopefully you can understand my decisions on these items.

Skills, And Team work

Volibear ALWAYS starts with Rolling Thunder for easy first blood for whoever your top lane with. Majestic Roar is the second skill you get, so you can slow, then throw them back with Rolling Thunder afterwords, so your teammate can pick up a kill. Frenzy isnt a favorite of mine at all, all it really does is do damage, its good if your a solo top, so if you are solo top, i would suggest maxing this before anything besides your Rolling Thunder

Counter Solo-Top

Well... For Starters, Darius OP, if you lane against him, You're pretty much messed up, In which you should go bot, or jungle, and have someone replace top for you. Their are alot of counters for Volibear, but Darius is the biggest one. He can slow, bleed you, true damage with his ultimate, into an insta cooldown... Let's just say he's very OP. If you're in a 1V2 situation on top, you might wanna play passive, and hope for a gank/ they close to turret to throw them back into with your Rolling Thunder skill...

Farming

Farming... Pretty Basic, just last hit minions/hit them with Majestic Roar... If you're going for jungle, do the basic, just save blue if your mid needs. I dont have much to say here besides the basic jungling
