Squ1dM0n's Viego Guide

By Squ1dM0n
Hi, Im a m7 Viego Main with about 160,000 points on him, i've been playing viego since season 12 and he was my second main (just after akshan) I'm currently iron 2 (was bronze 2 in season 12) because i dont like playing ranked much. My lol name is Squ1dM0n. My primary goal for this guide was to help people playing viego and show that its not a really easy champion and in my opinion one of the hardest champions in the game. I have a couple mains and my primary champions i play are Viego, Akshan, Udyr and i have been getting into play some Hecarim and Jhin. Hopefully this guide answers all your questions and if there are any more dm me on Discord:

Pros and Cons
Really Fun (cant get bored of playing him)
Really high Skill Ceiling
Some of the Strongest Resets in the game
Really good Mid - Late Game Scaling
Thrives in a Teamfight
1 shot potential (to all the jhin players out there)

Weak Early Game
High Skill Ceiling Champion
Struggles vs High Burst/CC
Ganks Pre 6 are weak
1v1ing potential isnt very good
Requires Basic Knowledge of every champion
How to use Viego's Passive?
Viego's Passive has two parts
1) His On-Hit Passive:
His on Hit passive is a passive that when ever using your damaging abilities (q, w, r) this will put a mark on your enemy/minion/jgl monster, if you auto attack the enemy that has a mark on it, this will heal you slightly.
2) His Possesions
Viego's Possesions is a passive that when you kill an enemy you will be able to use that champion for 10 seconds. When possesing an enemy you will become untargettable and be able to use the possesed champion. you will also heal for a base stat of 2% the enemy's base hp and gain a movement speed buff of 10% when facing enemy champions, he will also gain a free use of your r.

Important Information!!!!!:
When possessing Champions you will not be untargetable to Towers Keep this in mind when tower diving.
When using possesion you want to be able to do one full combo into your r.
You dont want to possess a champion that is very squishy in a huge team fight scenario. (ehehe i wish i learnt that before ;-;)
If you possess someone pre 6 you cannot return to normal viego until the 10 seconds are done Keep this in mind when running away and possesing an champion that has no mobility (e.g Jinx)
How to Itemize as Viego
Against Heavy CC ( Amumu, Sejuani) ill go Blade of the Ruined King into Plated Steelcaps/ Mercury Threads into Heartsteel or Jak'Sho (I heavily recommend Heartsteel since its broken and jak'sho loses stacks with each possesion)
Against heavy Tanks Ill go Blade of the Ruined King/ Kraken Slayer into Plated Steelcaps/ Mercury Threads/ Berserker Greaves into Essence Reaver/ Kraken Slayer
Against Life Steal Champs ( Sylas, Warwick, Aatrox) Ill go Blade of the Ruined King into Plated Steelcaps/ Mercury Threads into Kraken Slayer/ Heartsteel into Chempunk Chainsword.
Tips That I Wish I Learnt Before
You can charge your w... (shhh let's not talk about that)
When possessing Champions you will not be untargetable to Towers (uh....)
Your Damaging Abilities Heal You (uhm)
You Heal More With extra AD/AP/Bonus Attack Speed (+2.5% per 100 AD, +2.0% per 100 AP, +5.0% per 100% bonus Attack Speed)
You run faster in possesions when facing enemy champions.
Why Viego?
In my opinion viego is a champion that you can never get bored of, his kit is very versatile. In my opinion viego is the hardest champion to master compared to every otehr champion. Now i say master and not to play because viego's main kit isnt ver technical and can be picked up in the matter of a couple games, it's just his passive that you're going to have to learn.
Map Clear
So usually i'll grab a ward and go top side where i will place it in the bush next the my blue buff. After this i will back and go Bot side to do my standard clear, while also looking at both my mid and top lane for potential ganks and denying their enemy laner the first blood.
Early Game for Viego
So usually i'll start by warding top side jungle and backing to grab my oracle lens.
After this i will start bottom and path my way up to top jungle
My clear should end at 3:15 and i'll save my smite for scuttle crab.
Afterwards i'll gank top/mid, if there isnt any ganking opportunities ill head bot lane and grab bot lane scuttle. Afterwards ill gank bot/mid and back
Ill grab my first items and a control ward where ill place in the dragon's pit.
I'll start ganking more prominently and try to get my lvl 6 power spike as fast as possible.
Afterwards ill go through my camps for a second clear while ganking lanes as necessary.
At lvl 6 i'll grab drake and at evolved primal smite i'll get herald. Viego can solo these epic monsters but a leash is nice to have. Ill usually let mid lane to stay lane although. Ill invade into the enemy jungle at my first item and look for ganks.
Viego's Powerspikes
Viego has 3 power spikes to keep in mind:
His first power spike being at lvl 6 when he gets his ultimate,
His Second Power spike being when he obtains his first item
His Third When he obtains his 3rd item
His Kit will be slightly weaker at lvl 18 compared to other champions e.g. bel'veth
so dont try to initiate fights as much unless with teams.
Viego Combo's
Now there are not many combos to learn for viego but here are some of the norms.
When Ganking.
E - W - AA - AA- Q - AA - R - AA
If you think its possible to save your w for chasing you can:
E - AA - Q - AA - W - AA - AA - R
A slightly harder concept is to hold your w and then press e so then you will be hidden for the majority of the gank and is much harder to dodge.
If your playing assassin viego then you can go
E - AA - PC - AA - AA - W - AA - AA - R
Why Resolve/ Domination Over Inspiration?
I usually will choose Resolve over The normal Inspiration rune set because with resolve you get some much needed tenacity and sustain where as inspiration your getting a faster powerspike and some extra mobility. In my opinion i think resolve is much more useful on a hypercarry like viego. However with domination over inspiration viego gets more burst damage and extra gold which for a bruiser/assassin is much needed.
Thanks, For Looking at my guide and hopefully you'll use the guide :)
If you got any other question's about viego or just jungling in general (im not a professional i make mistakes) dm me on discord @ Kek#1720
