Bhyure's Low-Elo Viego Jungle Guide

By Bhyure33
Introduction
Hello there. I am Bhyure33. You probably have never heard of me and that is simply because I practically am a nobody on the internet. I have played League of Legends actively for about 2 years now and have reached Silver 1 in solo ranked. What you are currently reading is my first ever guide on Mobafire, and I decided to make it about my most played main Champion, Viego, the Ruined King. Now, I hear you ask "Why would I use your guide, you are only silver", and I answer that that is a good point and a reasonable reason for you to not use this guide. However, what I'm aiming by making this guide is to make a guide for low-elo players, by a low-elo player. That makes sense, right? Anyways, I'm not a man of many words, so this guide basically only tells you the essentials to playing this amazing champion. For more details and other points of view, please check out r/Viegomains on Reddit, and Elekktro's Viego guide here. His Viego guide is the one I used to learn this champion, and he still keeps it up to date so I highly recommend it. But without further ado, let us proceed, shall we?
Changelog & note from the author
November 25th, 2022: The Guide is released.

February 24th, 2023: Updated most of the guide now that the season changes have truly settled and Viego's build was majorly changed.

Hi. I also wanted to leave a message here for any possible readers. So first of all, sorry for not updating this guide in a while. I just haven't felt like spending time to change these up to date, until now. What pushed me to do this update was the fact that finally after months of struggling, Viego was finally buffed in patch 13.4, and it was a buff to his crit damage. This meant that he is now stronger overall, and not overly strong in pro play. I have now played a little on this patch and he definitely is stronger than before, so now is a good time to pick him up if you still haven't. In addition, ranked games now give and take more LP per game than before, so now it is also a good time to start climbing. Anyways, I'm thankful if this guide is of any use to you, make sure to comment and vote if you have any suggestions on the guide, but in the end, we'll see again when Viego gets a major update. Have a good one.
Pros and Cons of playing Viego
Pros:
- Very fun and satisfying to play
- Relatively easy to pick up
- Is a hypercarry
- High skill ceiling
- Gets skins quite often

Cons:
- Many hard matchups
- Playing well requires knowledge of every single champion in the game
- Relatively weak in skirmishes before level 6
- A little weak in current meta
- Not the best choice in low-elo
Basic combo / fighting enemies
Basic combo & fighting a 1v1

TL;DR: W -> AA -> Q -> AA -> ability spam, AA and smite -> R when enemy is low hp.

You initiate fights with your W. If you have time to charge it before the fight, do it because it increases the stun duration. However this becomes harder mid- to lategame, so you should just release it whenever it can hit the enemy. After hitting your W, the enemy gets marked by your Q's passive (which gets applied by hitting any damaging ability). This mark is consumed by using an attack, and what consuming the mark does, is that the attack you use to consume it hits twice. This is why it is very easy for Viego to proc PTA and Conqueror. These marks also work when possessing an enemy, so make sure to utilise that.

After using W and attacking the mark, use Q as soon as the attack animation finishes to maximize dps. Q also applies it's passive, so swing another attack after it. When you do this, you have now hit the enemy enough times to activate conqueror, which means that you have successfully done the basic combo. After that you can E to stick to the possibly now escaping enemy, unless you already used it to get near them to use W. Now just spam Q and W whenever you get them, make sure to proc Q's passive marks, and use R when the enemy is low on hp.

Teamfighting

When teamfighting, you primary goal is to get resets (=kills and thus passive). Do this by focusing either the squishiest enemy or the one with low health. Use the basic combo described above, and when an enemy dies, attack it to possess it. When possessing, use the enemy's abilities and attacks to the most, you don't have mana to worry about! Even when possessing, your goal remains the same: focus one enemy to possess them. By doing this you aim to create a domino effect, in which you deal large amounts of dmg to the enemy while healing and becoming untargettable every few seconds as you get kills. However be careful when for example possessing their 0/10 adc, because then you should just spam R to get out before you get one shot. Also when fighting keep in mind that you deal less dmg the lower the enemies get, as both your Q's passive and BOTRK, which are your main dmg sources, deal current health % dmg.
Jungle Clear
A full clear is always Red->Krugs->Raptors->Wolves->Blue->Gromp->Scuttle. Smite should be used for Large Krug and Scuttle. Start charging W just before getting to the camp to maximize its distance and stun duration. Your starting attack speed is just enough to proc Q's passive 3 times until the marks disappear. This is essential knowledge when clearing raptors, where you should proc the marks on the large raptor and 2 highest health raptors. This way you make everyone low for your jungle pet to finish them off, while focusing the large raptor so that it dies about the same time as the small ones.
Some ending words
So I think I have now covered everything that's essential to play Viego. I will update this guide whenever Viego's itemisation or gameplay changes drastically, but until then, this is a goodbye from me. Leave a vote and a comment to let me know what I should add or do better with this guide. Have a good one.
