Champion Build Guide

Who are you?
I'm casual player from EUNE who loves to experiment with builds.
Currently plat 4 I am basically Hide on Bush, such a great player, that even Pro players dodge when they are up against me. My builds always win me the game.
I went from on hit Ivern to this masterpiece. This is my first guide ever so I'm pretty inexperienced with the site in general. I'm not native English speaker so correct my mistakes if you find any. Most of the times when I create new build, It's because i forgot to change my runes from the last game, so I just adapt to them. :))))
Pros and cons
When someone first picks veigar u think for yourself: "wow what a nice squishy lets pick zed and one shot him the entire game" only 5 minutes later to realise he has more armour than your tank toplaner.
Pros- tanky and deals a lot of damage.
Cons- To deal considerable amount of damage you need to be in lane almost all the time and give up map pressure. Don't answer your teammates flaming, it will only cause more problems.
In dragon or baron pit you can keep the enemies out of the "steal" range and not be afraid of dying from assassins. Veigar's (E) is a great weapon in teamfights.
I made this guide just to show the possibilities with tank veigar and it's up to you how are you gonna play him.
If you are silver like me, you already know that ARAM starts at 15th minute mark.
During that time try to side lane, but if you see 2 or more enemy champs missing recall immediately. If you see that your team is getting pushed to the inner turret recall and defend it. Your and makes it easy to defend turrets, and make them much harder for enemy team to dive.
I like electrocute , it compensates for your lack of burst damage.
Other rune options: , .
Bonus runes: if you go vs more AP than AD change them to bonus magic resistance instead of armor.
The main combo that goes with this rune is E+W+Q. When you lack the damage to kill your oponents with R, very often elecrocute will finish them off.
This rune together with ravenous hunter helps you have sustain after bad trades.
Very useful rune in mid lane where you get additional vision, helps you avoid enemy ganks.
Why tank?
Veigar gains a lot of AP from his passive so he doesn't need Ap items.
Tankier Veigar can survive bursts from assassins and still do a lot of damage in teamfights. ATTENTION: VEIGAR IS NOT A FRONTLINE!
When to pick him?
Don't first pick veigar, since he has many counter matchups, it's very likely that you will get counterpicked and play against katarina who will make it very difficult to itemize against. It's best to pick him when enemy team has 4/5 AD champs, or your team lacks some AP. The more AP they have, more difficult the game becomes. Champions who build pose the biggest threat to you, even if you itemize against them they will still do a lot of burn damage.
I start with Tear of the Goddess for mana so I can longer stay in lane.(if you are not a veigar main be ready to miss your first cs since tear of the goddess doesn't give you AP)
Frozen Heart gives you a lot of mana and armor plus ability haste, very good choice.
Locket is very strong teamfight item, and if you are playing veigar support, this is the item choice for you.
Abyssal Mask works fine with your E and helps maximize your damage output.
Rabadon's Deathcap is the only AP ITEM YOU NEED TO TAKE. It packs a lot of AP and buffs your passive 35%!
You can also build Luden's Tempest for more damage.
I tried bulding Luden's Tempest a couple of times, and it worked just perfectly. It gives you a lot of magic penetration late game + nice poke passive.
Laning phase
Concentrate on CSing, especially early game when you lack AP to finish off minions.
If the enemy plays very agressively lvl 2, you can proc electrocute with W+Q+AA. Try to avoid trades as much as possible, abilities drain a lot of mana. You rely on short burst oriented trades, or slowly damaging opponent until they are in health range(they dropped low enough do you to kill them) for your full combo kill.
Roaming when to leave lane etc...
How to setup ganks: try to lure enemy opponent by missing W or Q skillshots, but keep your E for ganks. If they get caught in the cage it's over for them, you will either kill them, or they burn flash and die anyways. Try to play around your opponent's summoner spells like or and if they have make sure to ult before they exit the cage stun.
I don't recommend following enemy laner roams, stay in lane and farm, but don't forget to spam ping your team!
Is it better than AP veigar?
I definetly think that the build is great, I had much more fun playing tank veigar, had better KD , very good winrates and easy/relaxing laning phase(I didn't need to worry about assassins one shoting me).
I sometimes replace standard build with this one, and I'm still experimenting with new items and runes to make this guide better and more accurate.
The strength of this build comes from enemies thinking they can kill you since they are used to dealing a lot of damage to standard veigars. That makes them go for agressive, unsafe plays which you can easily punish.
