Introduction to Volibear

Here's an introduction to Volibear The Thunder's Roar

He is my 2nd best tank champ here in League of Legends. So I would say that this is really good for other players who play Volibear . He is a good tank cause he really need that high Health and armor and such, he is also a good support because of his Majestic Roar and a fling or what we call Rolling Thunder . He can bring down other tanky or high health champs like Nunu or even Dr. Mundo . Lets see hmmmm yeah I could really use the attack speed on Volibear but sadly he dosent need it cause his Frenzy already gave him 8 to 20 % bonus attack speed. Now please finish the whole Chapters of my guide and hopefully youll win 15 games plus.... :3

Now the 2nd chapter is the runes of Volibear ....
marks : Hmmmmm High Health Marks are really help full for him and Armor for starters....
glyphs : Still the same
seals : The same
quintessences : Really good for he needs high health for his passive which is Chosen of the Storm .

Hopefully this masteries will really help voibear throughout the whole game.... :D\

I chose Summoner's Wrath and Sorcery to help him in his Exhaust and the Sorcery for his cooldown reduction.

I chose these skills from the skill tree of defense
gives you :
More health
More armor and magic resist
Reduced damage from crits
And reduced damage taken from turrets

Movement Speed ( out of combat 2%) to really catch up to defend your turrets.

I chose to take the doran's sheild to add armor and health and hp regen in the start of the game then Ninja Tabi to add movement speed when you recall . Then the Giant's Belt and Phage for slow damage and health, Giant's Belt 2 (one for each recall) or ( 2 if you have the money), Frozen Mallet for the Phage and Giant's Belt , Warmog's Armor for health, health regen, Sunfire Cape for the Damage over time, then Chain Vest for armor, then go straight to Atma's Impaler for the crit and damage, then buy the Negatron Cloak for that extra magic resist, and lastly upgrade it to the Banshee's Veil . Good luck on how you gain that amount of gold in your lane.. :D

I really recommend Exhaust and Flash spell.
Exhaust : for the purpose of Summoner's Wrath to reduce armor and magic resist on that target.
Flash : to chase the opponents and to flash to walls to escape.

optional spells : for you only
Ghost : really good at laning and chasing but really useless in clashes.
Ignite : good for the extra ap amount but useless on late games when the enemy has items like Rod of Ages or other health items.
Rally : good spells really helpful in clashes
Teleport : good at going back to your turret on your lane or ganking
Heal really helpful when your enemy team has an ignite to survive.

Pros / Cons

The Pros / Cons in the champ

Great help in team fights
Has good CC Majestic Roar

cons :
Can be countered by Ignite

Team Work

The really good team in my opinion :
Heres the Troll team :

why them for the troll team?
Blitzcrank will pull, Singed will fling and also Volibear , Tristana 's Buster Shot and Ahri 's Charm .

Good with : Caitlyn 's Yordle Snap Trap , Ashe 's Frost Shot and Rengar 's Unseen Predator .

Unique Skills

Volibear 's unique skills:
Chosen of the Storm = great survivability
has strong CC ( Majestic Roar )
Rolling Thunder can really bring their squishies close to your carries.
Frenzy can really lay the smackdown to the other team's tanks or high health champs in early to late game.
