Ability details

Chosen of the Storm
When Volibear's health drops below 30% of his maximum health, he will heal for 30% of his maximum health over the next 6 seconds. This passive effect has a 120 second cooldown.


Rolling Thunder
For the next 4 seconds, Volibear will gain 15% movement speed. This bonus increases to 45% movement speed when moving toward a nearby visible enemy champion. Additionally, Volibear's next autoattack during this time will deal bonus physical damage and will fling the target behind him.

Frenzy
(Passive): Volibear temporarily gains bonus attack speed after an autoattack. This bonus stacks up to 3 times and lasts for 4 seconds.

(Active): While Volibear has 3 stacks of Frenzy, he can activate this ability to bite a target enemy. The stacks won't be consumed. The bite will deal physical damage that scales with his own bonus health. This damage will in turn be increased by 1% for every 1% of the target's missing health.

Majestic Roar
Volibear lets out a powerful roar that deals magic damage and slows nearby enemies for 3 seconds. Minions, monsters and pets are also feared for 3 seconds.

Thunder Claws
For the next 12 seconds, Volibear's autoattacks will blast his targets with lightning that will bounce to up to 3 nearby enemies. Each bolt of lightning will deal magic damage and will only hit each target once.

Items

I play Volibear mostly as tank / offtank in jungle. You can deal a lot of damage although you have a tanky build.

Hunter's Machete
Start with Hunter's Machete and 5x Health Potion.



Spirit of the Ancient Golem
After the change of Madred's Razors i take Spirit of the Ancient Golem for my jungle item.



Boots of Mobility
I prefer Boots of Mobility for good ganks but you can also buy Ninja Tabi or Mercury's Treads for more sustian.


Locket of the Iron Solari
Every team should have a Locket of the Iron Solari to shield the burst of enemy team.



Randuin's Omen
Randuin's Omen is a good tank item on Volibear, armor and health with a usefull active.



Spirit Visage
Spirit Visage is my favorit item for Volibear with magic resist, health and it improves your passiv.


Warmog's Armor
Finish your build with Warmog's Armor to be more tanky.
If you need more armor take Thornmail or Sunfire Cape.


Wit's End
With Wit's End we have a great damage output in compination with Thunder Claws.



Atma's Impaler
If you are ahead i like the Atma's Impaler- Warmog's Armor combination to dominate the game.

Tips

Summoner spells


Jungle:

flash
I use Smite and Flash in jungle with Volibear.



ghost
I don't prefer Ghost on Volibear because i think he has enough movement speed with Boots of Mobility + Q. To be more surprising i use Flash.

Top:

ignite
Play Volibear top with Flash and Ignite. These spells are the best for top line.



Flash
Flash is a good combination for Rolling Thunder. Ignite to save a kill.



Ghost
But you can also use Ghost.
