Introduction

Welcome to my first Mobafire- Guide.


In this guide i will present you the Tanky-DPS Volibear, who is pretty strong in the early,late and mid game.

Pros / Cons

Pros:

  • overpowered in the late game
  • nice damage output though he is tanky (Atmog's)
  • has nice CC (knock-back and slow)
  • very useful in team-fights
  • high sustain in lane, cause of Chosen of the Storm
  • nice AoE-Damage with Thunder Claws and Majestic Roar
  • Frenzy scales with Health Points
  • nice animations including a very nice dance ;)

Cons:
  • no good escape skill instead of Flash
  • low mana pool until you get Frozen Heart
  • low movement speed
  • item dependant
  • kind of dependant on CD's
  • low early game until you get Trinity Force
  • gets countered easily with Ignite on top

Why Tanky-DPS and not Pure Tank?

Volibear was designed as a tank, who can deal a good amount of damage even as he is not fed as hell. So I think it's important to improve his damage with some Attack- Speed items, like Wit's End. Also Volibear simply doesnt work as a pure tank, like Rammus or Shen . It's my own opinion and I hope i can convince you in this guide to play him as a Tanky-DPS .
