[10.21] How to carry as Veigar support !

By Sn0wx
Hi and welcome to this guide for carry support Veigar.

We're gonna introduce, view spells, runes, stuff, matchup, gameplay, and conclusion.

So let's go !
Veigar, who is it ? Back to Top
And that's a good question ! So Veigar is a (very) high damage APC, he is usually played in midlane, but here we play it as support !


+ Stun cage can trap multiple enemies at a time
+ One of the highest damage champions.
+ Can single handedly delete enemy carrys.
+ Gets free AP from abilities (infinite AP)


- Bad against assassins and high damage champs.
- Can be hard to land stun when enemy plays safe
- Weak early game, he needs time.
- Bad poke compared to other sup.
Spells Back to Top
So your goal is to max Q (logic) then in mid-game you've got 2 options :

-If you had a great early and you deal already a lot of damage up E and Z.

-If you're late and so doesn't deal much damage max E, that allow your allies to deal a maximum damage.
Runes Back to Top
For runes there some possibilities,

Some take Electrocute but with, you have a VERY bad early, other take Glacial Augment but i prefer use it on mid. And finaly my prefered rune is Arcane Comet because it did correct damage in early and help also in late.
Stuff Back to Top

Starting Item

For me there is no debate, it's the Spellthief's Edge, it offers a lot more AP and the veigar poke makes it very easy to mount ...

First Item

If you took Glacial Augment or your game is a nightmare, go Everfrost.
If you tooked Arcane Comet and you had a good early, you can go Luden's Tempest without any problem, he is more expensive but, he vives 10 more AP and especially, the Luden's Tempest passives can proc the Arcane Comet ...
If you took Glacial Augment, this item is mandatory, If you have taken Arcane Comet, you can take it in case you had a bad start to the game because it gives only 10 AP less but is much cheaper ...


Really ? No, there is no debate : MR is perfect !

Second Item

Ah ! The game continue you take AP and gold, it's time for the second item ! so it's time for the second item, here were in 2 cases, you have champs that heal a lot ( Soraka, Sona and Yuumi for exemple ...), and it reduce healing from champs. Or you have a bad game and Morellonomicon is a good choice after Everfrost, MR is also interesting.
Hourglass Very safe choice, but very useful all the game, Also Armor and AP is good ... Don't take it if they are healing champs.
A specific choice for Glacial Augment only, not a very good item but very useful for the rune.

Third Item

Ah this time, their is no choice, you have around 400-500 AP and Rabadon's Deathcap up you to 800-850 AP, now you're a monster :)

Fourth Item

This is very easy, so for the persons who taked Arcane Comet the choice is easy, if you take Morellonomicon take Zhonya's Hourglass and back again ... For the Glacial Augment, take Zhonya's Hourglass except if their is
healing champs ...

Fifth Item

Yes, you can sell support item to buy Void Staff at this time you're very strong and destroy who you want...
A very good item if you're fed : AP, AP, AP and AP up to 145 AP. Buy it very early because it's a cheap item.

Useful Item

Not very good item just the AP is interesting because the passive don't have time to proc ...
Banshee's Vell Good defensive item, some AP and a interesting passive ...
Not the best item but a good one, a lot of AP and the passive can permit you deal 1 auto in TF ...
A very good item if you're fed : AP, AP, AP and AP up to 145 AP. Buy it very early because it's a cheap item.
Matchup Back to Top
Unfortunately, Veigar has some matchup that transform laning phase into nightmare.

First, I recommend to you to ban Pyke, he is a nightmare with his grab --> dash/stun horrible and his R that execute.

Blitzcrank is also a very hard matchup, his passive make him invicible in Early ans his grab needs to ne perfectly placed all time.

Nautilus require you to place perfect cage just before he grab you to instant disengage. So be sure to have E when approaching him.

Morgana and Lux is dangerous and require you to constant dodge their stuns, don't forget that Lux stun 2 champions and Morgana shield make your cage useless.

Rakan, be very safe because je can easily engage and without Flash you can't survive. Be also careful with his R.
Early Game Back to Top
Early game is very depending on summonner spells :

If you take [Teleport] be very safe before level 6, your job is to stack a maximum Phenomenal Evil Power and support item with Baleful Strike, but never engage fight, except is your jungler is here obviously. but with Teleport you can spend all of you mana, and back very early to regen and buy part of Lost Chapter and finaly, Teleport on your lane.

If you take Ignite and know when use it, you can engage without jungler level 4-5.

In the 2 cases, be very careful of (Early) jungler ganks, if you die you waste a lot of time because you can't stack Phenomenal Evil Power
Mid Game / Pre-Late Back to Top
So at this moment I supposed that laning phase is finished and there is 2 cases :

- You've got a good early, congrulations ! But now you have to get more stacks of Phenomenal Evil Power with 2 methods, finish creeps with Q, Baleful Strike before support limit and get assists (or kill ^^) with mates.

- In the case of you've got a bad early, that's ok you just have also to farm a max with Baleful Strike and get assists from fights. A tips if you are very weak, stay with the people who carry and take a maximum of assist.

Some very important tips : first, never stay solo without tower that's free kill for ennemies, second, you can buy Chronometer to be more safe on fight, and finaly, use you R correctly on low champions to are sure to finish

We can consider that you are very powerful and enter in Pre-Late once you bought Rabadon's Deathcap you can execute weak people, be very careful of tank with CC who can destroy you and you can do nothing in this time ( Garen it's for you specially).

Also try to never stay solo it can be dangerous ...
Late Back to Top
Now, we can play (devil laugh in background)

You are very powerful so play good and have fun !

If they are feeded ennemies, look for Zhonya's Hourglass.
Conclusion Back to Top
