Introduction

Hello everybody and welcome to my own Volibear guide! First of all I will introduce myself, I am Antonio "iTz ToniOP" and I'm a spanish Volibear main. If you find some mistakes please notice me so I can fix it since it is not my native language.

Im currently one of the best 15 Volibear in EUW.



I've been playing League of Legends since 2012, when I started playing rankeds. I have climb from an ELO score of 550 (worse than the actual bronze V) in season 2 to Diamond IV 6 years later.

I will teach how do I play my main champion, I will focus on how is he played in SoloQ, thats why im telling you to play him with Ignite.

Runes

Aftershock is the best keystone I've tried, it can be activated with our Rolling Thunder or Majestic Roar and grants you a very important defensive buff in early game.

Triumph gives you the chance of surviving to a crazy tower dive or even to an Ignite, it really needs to be nerf. Coup de Grace is insane combined with Frenzy.

Items

Volibear's itemization is so simple I think. First of all we'll start with Doran's Shield and a Health Potion, this is the standard. If you get one early kill you can back for Bami's Cinder and a Control Ward, you'll receive a lot of ganks while playing Volibear




Bami's Cinder. This is my favourite item by far, it gives you amazing stats for only 900 gold. This combines with Frenzy perfectly. After it we'll finish the Sunfire Cape as soon as possible.

If you're playing against an ability power champion such as Vladimir you can build Bami's Cinder aswell but before anything else you must priorize Spectre's Cowl and Spirit Visage

For the boots I choose Mercury's Treads, you cannot dash into the fight. The only way for you to get into the enemy team is to run more than they do, you need Tenacity for that. If you're playing DuoQ with a friend and he mains support, he can pick Lulu or Zilean, those combos are insane.





The key of the build is the Righteous Glory, it allows you to make the most savage engages.

Spirit Visage is the last core item I will be talking about, the healing you get with Chosen of the Storm will be increased by a 30%. This means that if you have a maximum health of 3000 you will heal 900 once your passive procs. Combined with Spirit Visage this amount is increased to 1170 HP healed.





For the full build I really like how Sterak's Gage fits to this aggresive playstyle.

If you are not feeling tanky enough you can build Randuin's Omen as your last item.

Of course if the game is not over once you have got the full build keep buying Elixir of Iron.

Skill Sequence

Now let's talk about why are giving our first point to Majestic Roar, the one we priorize the least. The utility of this skill since it got buffed is crazy. I use it for a lot of things such as:

But, why are we upgrading Majestic Roar at lvl 1?
I think it is the most useful skill for the first minute of the game since this is the way you have the best level 1 duel. You may not have the Frenzy attack speed buff, but you can fear away every minion is around you, you get the Aftershock bonus armor and the damage when it explodes.

Then, we will always priorize Frenzy since it is a really powerful skill. It scales pretty well, you will have to discover by yourself how do you prefer to use it. It has a high cooldown reduced to the half if we use it on minions and monsters (we can use it for last hitting a cannon minion).

Pros / Cons

PROS:

- Great tank with amazing individual CC.
- Easy to play.
- Nice engages, you can comeback by picking up the right guy.
- Unknown champion.






CONS:

- Weak against kite and poke.
- Blade of the Ruined King counters him so much.
- If you run too far from your teammates looking for the engage, they won't be able to follow you up.

Conclusion

Volibear is a funny champion that has been with me since I started playing this game. This guide is my way of sharing to others how do I play this champion and how did I get to Diamond for the first season since I play this game.

I hope you guys like it, share and tell me if theres any mistake so I can fix it.

Thanks and see you in the Summoner's Rift!
