My peak LP in season 8 is 512 LP, and in season 9 im currently around 1000 LP

In this guide i will show you the runepages i use, combos and mechanics, matchups and different phases of the game and some more!

- Good pick potential

- Great midgame

- Good zone control with his and

- Oneshot potential

- Decent/Good lategame (depending on enemy comp and your comp)

- Good synergy with a lot of supports

- Evil!



- Very telegraphed

- Easy to abuse and play vs

- Immobile

- Bad to first pick

- Most supports dont know how your champion works or how to play with you

I explain some mechanics and combos in my youtube guide :

But ill cover some here aswell:

Your Gives vision while it is falling down, use this to check bushes or fog of war!

You can cast your spells into bushes / fog of war and if you got 1 ap that means you hit someone so therefore someone is in the bush. If you got 2 ap, or 3 ap etc that means theres more than 1 person, but be careful, if you have you may get 2 ap even though you only hit 1 person. This is also useful to see if your target got stunned, lets say you chase someone into fog of war and you cast your cage, keep an eye on your ap. If it got higher they got stunned!

Your and is an AUTO ATTACK Reset. Meaning you can cancel your auto attack animation with your or This is useful for farming with auto > or getting alot of auto attacks off in a combo early game like auto > auto .

You can use then 0.5 seconds later to give your enemies less chance to react, instead of doing then . (similar to > )

You have to learn interactions such as being able to interrupt with your , or setting up your for to hook into it and things like that.

You can then into the enemy to make your hit before your . Making your deal more damage.

Usual oneshot combo : > > > > .

Long range oneshot combo: > > >

Early/Midgame combo: > > > AUTO > > AUTO >

Lane harass combo: > > AUTO > > AUTO or a quick trade like AUTO > > AUTO

First thing to do before thinking about the laning phase is understanding the jungle matchup and how it will affect you, is enemy jungler a ? Be careful of level 2 ganks. Is your jungler an early game jungler such as ? if yes see if you can get him priority so he can invade or fight. Knowing how jungle matchups plays out will help you understand how to play your lane.

For every lane your goal is to FARM, A good will ALWAYS have 8 cs per minute or more. this is GUARANTEED gold, that you will get every game. There is no point poking enemy permanently just to MAYBE get a kill, when you can get more gold and ap by consistantly farming well, and that way kill him guaranteed later on.

Now, this doesn't mean never attack the enemy. If the enemy is zoning you off farm, or walking up like a monkey then sure go ahead use on him.

You should value your like this: best case: Last hit minion with while hitting enemy with it too > cannon + a minion with > 2 minions with > Hitting enemy with > 1 minion with .

Before first base do not spam your > > combo, you will go out of mana fast. Focus on not being under tower too hard by using and to farm. As botlane veigar try to base at 1300 gold so you have enough for your If somehow thats not possible you most likely ****ed something up,so look to fix your mistake. At level 6 you can look to all in if you have someone like a as your Support.

It's also very important that you try to make sure that you are not under tower with a big wave , otherwise you risk getting doved by enemy botlane and jgler/mid. Try to match enemy push but you do not want to push hard if you are in danger. You mainly just want to scale without dying, so dont die to ganks, dont get doved, and dont risk dying in a 2v2 unless its necessary!

After taking the bottom turret, if no important dragon is up you should consider swapping with your toplaner so you can take the top turret aswell. this way you can push your lead while youre ahead. After taking top turret look to take herald and start laning midlane.

It's okay if you cannot take bot turret, just try to not lose your own turret, remember you are playing so your scaling is quite good, so staling the game if you cannot push your lead is completely fine to do! If you keep your turret alive they will also have to overextend in order to push their own lead so then you can easily look to land a and get a kill!

A good indicator of when midgame has started is when people have completed 1-2 items, some turrets are gone and people have started to group up a bit. Your items at this point should be , if going build: , , and a preferably. If going Your items should be and

Look to catch sidelane farm and jungle camps here and there, this is key to achieving a high CS per minute. This makes you scale faster and have a consistant way of getting farm. If enemy has assassins or invisible champions like , , , , you should consider only catching sidelane farm if its under your turret. If nobody can really kill you in sidelane you can keep pushing as you take towers quite fast with spike. or you can just push and go rotate to your team afterwards. You need to make sure u have up if something important will happen.

Your goal in midgame is to close out the game or to stall the game ( if behind )

As BOT Veigar it's also possible to just farm midlane in mid/lategame if your solo laners are farming sidelane. So if you have a MID and a in TOP and they are splitpushing, just farm mid.
Your goal in midgame is to close out the game or to stall the game ( if behind )

When is the lategame? The late game is when objectives such as baron is up, more turrets start to fall. People are grouped as 4-5 alot more. 4 or more items are usually completed at this point and death timers start to be very long. 30 minutes is a good indicator of game time that lategame usually starts.
By this point, if going Electrocute you should have , , , and completed. , , instead of if the magic pen isnt needed yet.

With the build you want to have and a completed.

In lategame you want to be grouped 95% of the time, getting caught out matters too much and at this point you should have enough items where farm dont matter as much anymore.
Look to siege turrets with your stun to zone enemy, or set up fights / look for picks.
Remember at this point you deal alot of damage and you are the primary carry, it is super important that you stay alive and dont get caught out.

Create yourself a priority list ( A list of who to target in a teamfight, and then target the person you are safe to damage based on the priority )

See if you can maybe catch someone out with a > > > combo.

Make sure to have good amount of vision placed on the map, this is your job and your teams job. its important especially as veigar to have vision behind you so you do not get flanked while your cage is on cooldown.

Why do you use instead of ?
has a bit longer range than your , which means you can > to catch people super easy. Is also alot cheaper than , so in an even lane you will have before they have .

is 10 AP less than , but 10 ap is nothing for veigar. gives same amounts of CDR as . counts as a spell for , meaning that if you hit you only need to do 2 spells to procc . instead of 3 if you were to have .

is good because loves movespeed. movement speed is super important on , if you are faster than the enemy you can land your really easily. It also gives good survivability. Just dont use your auto attacks unless its needed, because if you auto you lose your movespeed.

is good when you need the cdr and have combo. You heal so much with your Combo and your .

Is good vs suppressions such as or

is a great counter to AP champions that has damage over time spells or low cooldowns such as and so if the enemy has 2-3 Damage over time champs or low cd magic damage spells, this is a really good item to go later on. A composition such as is a good scenario to build this item.

Is good when you need the extra movespeed to get in range to burst someone,its especially good with the glacial augment build because of the 2nd part of righteous glory activating glacial augment.

every other item i go should be self explanatory.
