Tank Veigar Support Guide

By DeadlyPhantom
Read this FIrst
Before you continue with this guide I have to say that this is by no means set in stone. These are Runes I thought where most optimal when playing him with bots, normal games and testing him in practice tool. If you think you have a better build or Rune page then by all means uses that instead. Do whatever you want so it fits your play style. Remember picking Tank Veigar may be a troll in some cases, example your team may be lacking actually damage. You may need to change your Mythic item to liandry's late game if the enemy team tanks are overwhelming your team when you thought they would be able to handle it. But I haven't seen this yet so keep that in mind when play this build.

The Threats page and Synergy page are both very small because I did not play a lot of games. So this is just something you are going to have to learn from experience. But it should be the same as normal Veigar support. Its just that late game most of the Threats fall of because you become so Tanky.(Hooks, Hard CC, etc...)

But in the end playing this game is for fun. So have fun first. Then win the game. And if you lose at least you had fun.
Why Tank Veigar Support?
\\\\\\\\\\\\This guide was made from a question I asked my self.
"Why does no one go

In Season 10, I remember going Half Tank Veigar build in one game going Spirit Visage in a full AP Team I remember it being fun as they could not hurt me and me having a lot of health with this one item. \\\\\\\\\\\\

The first reason I'm making this guide was there was no Full Tank build for Veigar. I asked Reddit first for a good Full Tank Build. But the answers I got where not satisfactory for me. So here is this guide that I created.

The other reason is with Veigar, as of now, is one of if not the weakest mid laner in the game right now due to the fact that Rabadons death cap got nerfed hard. Before the nerf if you could buying as a 3rd/4th item for Veigar would be good. Now with increased price and lower percentage Ability Power makes it a 5th or even 6th item. Also as newer champs are being released more of them have Dashes that can help them get out of Veigar Cage making him weaker generally. Look at Yone, Samira and even Viego.

The final reason and probably the main reason is I remember getting stomped because the Cho'Gath from top lane got so fed and Tanky that I could only damage to him to around 1/10 of his max health even with Liandrys and Demonic Embrace, Rabadons, Void Staff and a full combo I was also a mid laner that game and was not even behind.
All I could think about was how broken Tank Items are. But then I thought, "What if I was a Tank as well?"
How does it work?
All you do when playing is build Health, Armor and Magic Resist and build Movement Speed Items. Then with this Movement speed you can get in range of a E and not die with your amount of Health, Armor and Magic Resist. And with Veigar natural amount of damage due to his Passive in late game you are still able to one shot the enemy ADC with Q W R combo if they don't build any Magic Resist. Read the notes I put in Runes, Items etc, it will explain why choose these things.
Final Words
From my testing in normal games he ok in terms of impact, but all the games I had where pretty bad with either Fiora being impossible to deal with. Or massive jungle dif. So I can't say for sure if this is a good build or not. There was one game where did not die once but that game everyone in my Team was winning so... yeah.

Forgive any grammatical errors, and spelling mistakes in this Guide I'm sure there is going to be a lot but I tried my best and its been around 3/4 days since is started this guide so if it does not come out now its never coming out.

But what I can say is this build is pretty fun, so I hope for the people that do try this build I hope you find it fun as well. And I hope Veigar gets a new buff soon.
