Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
I'm PhunnyScoots, and this is my first guide on Mobafire, so CONSTRUCTIVE criticism is always helpful. :)
Anywho, let's get to it.
Of course, Phreak plays everyone as a jungler, so this video might not be of help if you're not jungling...
Before you say anything, Flash is necessary. If you wish though, you may take one of these.
Teleport is great, but there are other options.
HealIs a great spell to bait out in fights and duels, but I don't recommend it.
Ghost is a good alternative to Flash
Good spell for greater champion killing
These work, but they're not ideal.
This spell works, but you don't have a problem chasing, because of Rolling Thunder, and the slow from Majestic Roar, so don't take this unless you feel like you REALLY need it.
Ok, rune time.
Greater Mark of Attack Damage x9
Greater Seal of Armor x9
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist x9
Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed x3
Damage marks are very beneficial on Volibear
Mostly because you're building an AD offtank in the first place.
Armor and Magic Resist are very common when it comes to runes, not much to say other than it gives you a little bit more sustain early game.
Attack speed is AMAZING on Volibear because it makes him completely destroy turrets because of your stacking AS buff in the form of Frenzy
9|21|0 Masteries are what I use for Volibear.
In Offense, I take CDR and AS, as well as Increased damage to turrets.
In Defense, I take Health per level, Health regen, Armor and MR, reduced damage from basic attacks, Tenacity (reduces duration of CC), and Increases ARM and Mr %, as well as Summoner's Resolve and Honor Guard
You may be saying to yourself, Zephyr? Really?.
Well Zephyr Provides evrything Volibear needs, including movement speed, attack speed, cooldown reduction, and attack damage, plus the tenacity buff. So combined with your mastery, you'll have 50% tenacity, not bad, right?
And Frozen Mallet is definately one of My favorite items in the game, Cause I mean come on, think about it. 40% SLOW ON YOUR BASIC ATTACK, HOW IS THAT NOT FREAKING AWESOME?!?!?!
Runic Bulwark Is a great source of tankiness in all aspects.
You can also get Ninja Tabi if against a heavy AD top, and you won't lose out on Tenacity, because Zephyr gives it.
Is a bear
His passive is....is.....Amazing.
Frenzy scales off health.
Did I mention he is a bear?
Suckish early game.
Not great at escaping.
Ah, Chosen of the Storm, it's something, isn't it?
Something OVERPOWERED that will save you so many times, it's wonderful
When Volibear drops to below 30% HP, he rapidly regenerates 30% of his maximum health over a time period of 6 seconds.
120 second cooldown
Use: Not Dying
Volibear drops on all fours for 4 seconds giving him 15% increased movement speed,
this bonus is increased to 45% when chasing ENEMY CHAMPIONS
His next basic attack while in this state will deal 30/60/90/120/150 BONUS damage and fling the target 300 units behind him.
12/11/10/9/8 second cooldown
Use: Escape, Chase
Single target nuke/Stacking buff
Volibear gains 8/11/14/17/20% attack speed for every basic attack, stacking up to 3 times.
(lasts 4 seconds)
When fully stacked, Volibear can activate this ability to deal 80/125/170/215/260 (+ 15% of bonus health physical damage to target enemy.
This is maxed first
AoE slow (also fear for minions and monsters)
Volibear lets out a roar that does 60/105/150/195/240 (+ 60% of ability power) magic damage to all nearby enemies and slows by 30/35/40/45/50% for 3 seconds.
Use: Damage, and slow
This is maxed second
For 12 seconds, Volibear's basic attacks will deal 75/115/115 (+ 30% of ability power) bonus damage and create a chain lightning effect that bounces up to 3 targets.
Each bolt can only hit a single target once.
Your job as Volibear is to initiate with your combo.
Said combo goes like this.
Flip them with Rolling Thunder, slow them with Majestic Roar, complete the stacks of Frenzy, then use it, then activate Thunder Claws.
Then do it again to another enemy.
and another one.
and another one.
and then you will kill the last one and get a pentassist.
Wait, that's not a thing...
It should be.
Well that was my Volibear guide,
I hope you enjoyed it!
Thanks to jhoijhoi for teaching me how to make a guide!
Have a wonderful day, and remember, Spin to win, kids.
