Welcome to the very first Vel'Koz build available on Mobafire!As more data is collected, I will fill this Guide periodically with new information!
*Thank you to everyone for making this the most popular Vel'Koz Guide on Mobafire! With over 200k views, really lets me know my work didn't go to waste!*
Extremely high AP damage can take out groups of enemies fast, invaluable in team fights.
His E's long effective range can be extremely useful for catching that pesky runner to get that kill secure.
The two charges on his W mean if an enemy is hit in succession with high AP and MPen, they will not last long thanks to deconstructions true damage.
Ult's long range can also assist in kill securing multiple low health enemies quickly.
VERY low starting HP, Armor, and MR leads to easy to secure deaths if not played smart.
Speed can be an issue if caught by the likes of Nunu, Taric, or anyone with a slow or stun ability.
Q can be very difficult to hit, with low range and only hits the first thing it hits, could be very difficult to use in group fights when targeting squishier opponents.
The ult can be very frustrating to use at first. With a high CD and it being very easy to miscast or break the ult, you'll find yourself often wasting your ult if not played properly.
ADC's: Vel'Koz' E's toss-up effect and Q's slowing effect are extremely useful for an ADC to get in multiple shots before an enemy can run, leading to a quick and easy kill secure.
Bruiser's: As Vel'Koz already does high AP damage, AD Bruiser's will be necessary for enemies who build high MR to counter Vel'Koz; same with ADC's. The toss-up and slow effects are also very useful with bruiser's.
Support: Haven't played with a support much yet as Vel'Koz, but what WOULD be effective is to have Soraka to heal his squishiness as well as restoring his mana frequently bot-lane.
Jungler's: Vel'Koz' ability to do high damage in a short period of time will oft leave enemies with very little HP if not killed right away, leaving junglers to stay in enemy jungle to frequently finish them off, or use Vel'Koz' slow/toss-up combo to finish off quickly and efficiently.
To my good friend KiraiNimaka from Freestyler's World for assisting in builds to use and strategies.
The Freestyler's World community for introducing me to League of Legends two years ago.
My good buddy SwiftyShot for making it to the Challenger Tier!
Friends in-game for support in-game to try out builds/strategies.
Jimmydoggga 2.0 for helping me discover Muramana and Trinity Force aren't as good late-game items.
heartlessmushroom/Firesage Demon For showing me Banshee's Veil is by far a much better pick for Vel'Koz over Spirit Visage.
Rhollback for helping me realize no where in my guide did I put Rylai's. /Facepalm lol.
And last but certainly not least, Vel'Koz himself for being the true ultimate Void creature! Remember, it seems your chances of survival are less than zero, when not choosing Vel'Koz as your champion to play!
