Learn the Basics of Vel'koz

By Fhizzikx
Understanding of Vel'koz
Vel'koz is an immobile Ability Power Mage who deals a lot of True Damage to his opponents. With that said, his playstyle is playing back and poking the enemy team before going for an all-in. Instead of engaging the enemy team, you must play cautiously because you are very vulnerable to being assassinated. A trick to make myself play better is to buy Mejais Soulstealer so I don't make dumb plays and get myself killed for no reason.

Knowing how to position yourself properly is key to playing Vel'koz proficiently. Bad positioning results in being caught by engages such as Nautilus or assassins like Zed.

Most of Vel'koz's damage comes from his passive.
The way to trigger the passive is to hit an enemy champion with abilities 3 times. The third time an enemy champion is hit by an ability, it will trigger a burst of true damage. Vel'koz's passive has no cooldown meaning that you can trigger his passive multiple times on the same target. You can refresh the duration stacks remain on an enemy by auto-attacking them.
Simple Combos
The simplest Vel'koz combo is Q into an R. this will proc ONE rotation of your passive. However, this combo is not particularly effective unless you perform the combo W E Q R. Vel'koz's R deals True Damage to any opponent who has recently been affected by the 3-hit passive of Vel'koz.

Keep in mind W has NO CAST TIME meaning you can W E at the same exact time. This also works for W Q as well as W R. You CANNOT E W or Q W at the same time because both Q and E have cast times. This means that there will be a delay in between casting.

Knowing the information above, we can do the combo Q W E R. The Q for the slow, W E for the knockup, and R to finish. This combo can be changed to W E Q R, which is slower but if you want to save your Q, then that combo works. Keep in mind you will be losing the Q slow in exchange for keeping your Q ready.
