⚔️ THE ULTIMATE VIEGO MID/TOP GUIDE (11.2)

By Rime101
VIEGO GUIDE
YOU LOCKED IN 1st TIME VIEGO AND ARE SEARCHING UP A GUIDE WHILE THE GAME LOADS?
TLDR; PLAY WITH
Conqueror Triumph Legend: Alacrity Coup de Grace with Taste of Blood and Ravenous Hunter. Small runes are attack speed, AD, armor/MR

Mid Build is: Galeforce Berserker's Greaves The Collector Infinity Edge Ravenous Hydra Guardian Angel. If you dont want to play crit you can build Blade of the Ruined King & Sterak's Gage instead of Collector and IE.

Top Build is: Blade of the Ruined King Plated Steelcaps Trinity Force Sterak's Gage Spirit Visage Guardian Angel . Replace visage with Death's Dance if vs heavy AD.

Hey! My name is Rime and I am a Season 10 Grandmaster mid who mostly plays Sylas. Ive played roughly 20 games of Viego on PBE and have played 10 ranked games of Viego on the live server since he came out. This guide is far from perfect as Viego has only been out for a couple of days and Im sure the meta will change but as of right now there are some clear builds that stand out as the strongest.

I am not the best Viego but I am a high elo player and I have looked at the current top 10 Viego players in the world (leagueofgraphs as reference) and can see what is currently working best for them.

There is not 1 best build on Viego right now. It is important to look at the enemy team comp before deciding what you want to buy.

THE BEST ITEMS ON VIEGO ARE The Collector Ravenous Hydra Blade of the Ruined King Guardian Angel and Sterak's Gage. These items are strong in every single game and will never be bad on Viego no matter what Mythic item you are buying. Generally if you are building a mythic item that gives you attack speed such as Kraken Slayer you will want to build Blade of the Ruined King with it. If you are rushing The Collector you should build other high damage items to go with it such as Ravenous Hydra or Galeforce.

Generally speaking if the enemy team comp is squishy you will want to build Goredrinker or Galeforce as your mythic item. If the enemy team is mostly tanks you will want to build Trinity Force or Kraken Slayer.

There currently is not enough data to back it up but on the current patch I strongly believe Galeforce to be the best Mythic item on Viego. Viego is a champion that relies on getting kill resets to do anything in teamfights. VIEGO IS EXTREMELY WEAK IN TEAMFIGHTS IF HE DOES NOT GET A KILL RESET. Building Galeforce or even Goredrinker will give you the necessary burst you need to take over a teamfight, get kill resets, and spam Heartbreaker.

Stridebreaker is an item that should be built if you are playing vs a kite heavy team such as Orianna Ezreal Lillia , and even then Im not sure if the item is better than Galeforce. Trinity Force is strong on VIEGO JUNGLE. It is not very strong in laning phase and is not meant to be built on SOLO LANE Viego.


Most Viego players are currently maxing Q > E > W. THIS IS FOR JUNGLE. IF YOU ARE PLAYING SOLO LANE VIEGO THE ABILITY MAXING ORDER IS Q > W > E. If you are laning vs someone who rushes seekers armguard or bramble vest you should consider switching from Q to W max for that game. Viego's W Spectral Maw has 300 base damage which is extremely high and can often catch people who build "tanky" off guard.

When you are playing teamfights as Viego your goal is simple. In a teamfight you want to force a kill so that you can use Sovereign's Domination.

BE A PART OF A KILL > TAKE THEIR SOUL USING Sovereign's Domination, spam that champions abilities then instantly use Heartbreaker again. Viego Ult does an insane amount of damage and the cooldown gets reset if you manage to get a kill. The most important thing to know about playing Viego is to USE YOUR ULT, dont save it for the perfect opportunity. Throw it out if someone is low and if they do not die its ok. During the next fight if you get an assist you can take someone's soul and use it again no problem.

If you are getting poked heavily in lane you can easily heal up off minions by hitting them with an ability (mostly from q) then auto attacking the minions. Even if you are laning with 90% hp you should be using your q and auto attacking minions to stay full HP.

When you are auto attacking the enemy turret remember to use your Harrowed Path for the extra attack speed.

Viego's rune page viability is pretty small as he does not use the sorcery or resolve tree well. The only options you can use that are strong on Viego are Precision, Domination, and Inspiration. But even inspiration is weak because Viego does not need biscuits for laning phase due to his built in sustain.

As far as runes go on Viego Conqueror is generally the best rune on Viego because of how insanely fast he can get it to 12 stacks. Because of Viego's passive you can Fully stack Conqueror by using the combo AA > Q > AA > W > AA. And once you complete a mythic item with an active or if you use your ult it will be able to stack even faster. Press the Attack can also be really strong if playing vs a team comp of mostly squishy champions, but as long as the enemy team has 2+ tanks or 3+ bruisers conueror will be the best Keystone on Viego. Electrocute Sounds good on Viego because it helps to get kill resets in fights but the damage on Electrocute will be doing far less then Conqueror if the fight is longer than 5 seconds.

IF YOU TAKE OVER Ornn body UPGRADE YOUR TEAMS ITEMS TO MYTHICS. IT IS INSANELY OP AND WILL LIKELY GET HOTFIX NERFED

Im not gonna pretend Im the Viego expert if you want up to date builds here are some of the best Viego players OPGG's (mid/top)
