THE UNRELENTING FORCE OF (VI)OLENCE!

By NAGlTO
Introduction
Heyo! I'm NAGlTO, and if you can't tell by how much *** this guide sucks, I'm hardstuck bronze. I also don't play the game all too much, but you know what I AM? I'm a hyper lore nerd, and I absolutely adore Vi. So when Arcane came out, I got a burst of inspiration to play her again. The problem with this however was that I'm not a jungle main, I'm a top laner. I'm not good at it either.

This is a guide of the builds I've been using for Vi Top, and yes, they somehow work even in Brozne ELO. Feel free to work upon them yourself but I thought it'd be fun to share and show other people just how desperate we can be to play comfort picks in lanes they really shouldn't be in.

If for whatever reason you want to reach me, my twitter is on my profile, but my discord is i like motorcycles#3645. Not that I'm popular enough to be acting like people want to genuinely ask me questions, so feel free to just send me harassment and positive reinforcement that I should be legally barred from any and all computers in a 3 mile radius. Have fun!

P.S: This is my first guide, I've only done a couple of real matches with VI top lane. I won't keep updating this guide with inconsistent information and constantly correct myself. If I get a wider mindset on the champion overall and the lane (again, hardstuck bronze) then I'll simply make a 2nd guide. Should you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me on Twitter or my discord which is just above. Thanks, XOXO!
The Early Game
This is without a doubt the worst part of Top Vi, you'll get destroyed by any good laner who knows your strengths and weaknesses (which granted, you're silver, so you're probably against a smurf if that's the case anyway). You don't want fights, at all. Take your E for farm and wait until LVL 3, from there you can engage with Q dash (tapping it takes you a lot farther than you probably think), auto, and E for W proc, from there you can extend the trade if you favor your chances especially with Conqueror. If you took HOB, this might work too! But for the most part? You want farm, unless you're absolutely confident you can take fights.

Don't forget pinks!
One good Kha'Zix gank means you'll be behind on that precious farm. They're also just habits you should get into in general but to each their own, if the pros don't buy pinks then why should you? The wave pushing into you or away from you is acceptable, though I would not stick around for longer than you need to if their jungler might be around. Cheater Recalls are your best friend!
The Mid Game
There is... Not much to go over here! Yeah, I'm surprised too. The mid game varies on how the early game went, and if you lost early game you essentially lost mid game. If you've managed to keep steady into Mid game, congrats! Either your tower is down, the enemy laner's tower is down, or both of your towers are down. Take farm here and there if you're behind or even if you're ahead, typically you want to roam around this time and make plays in other lanes where your team needs pressure or help.

Vi is an exceptionally well jungler, never forget that. If you have ult, roam mid or bot and make plays with it and give teammates (granted they listen) a chance to get advantages over objectives (drake namely). It's okay to die a couple of times if it means you're opening doors for your team!

"Hey, NAGlTO! You're talking an awful lot about making opportunities for your team, isn't this supposed to be a Vi TOP LANE guide, not jungle?"
Yes, you are absolutely correct! However you also have to know that Vi, in the sea of other top laners who would go against her, really isn't too great of a pick. In my eyes anyway, which is why I'm massively underselling what might actually be a super OP strategy that forces Riot to nerf her. If you wanna use my guide as a base and use a different approach, let me know how it goes! Vi isn't really a 1v9 machine on her own even in jungle, so the best thing you can do is make openings and pray your team knows what they're doing to take them.
The Late Game
If you managed to make it this far ahead, you'll notice that Vi tends to fall off from the game once everyone is near full build. Late game is mostly going to be filled with you trying to get side-lane picks and holding vision on objectives, as well as contesting. If there's nothing of the sort you're able to do, stick with the team and serve as the sudo-tank (or full tank if you built her that way!) and focus your attention on bursting high priority/damage enemies. If you've got a fed Twitch on the enemy team you better R, E, AA, Q, AA, E into that with the speed of Zeus' lightning bolts.

And as far as this guide goes, that's all I got! Thanks for reading, and I hope my little bronze brain helped you find a fun little pick!
