May the Great Potato guide you...
This is my first guide and English isn't my native language, sorry for any mistake and grammatical errors. Hope you understand! :D
Volibear can be a hell of a tank, but he's a very nice support too, nobody can escape your Rolling Thunder and you can combo it with the Majestic Roar for epic slows, this way you can give a lot of free kills to your ADC

You should MAX Rolling Thunder first because it's your main support skill, right after, you should focus Majestic Roar for nice slow downs, combed with the Rolling Thunder this skills becomes brutal.

Very nice skill combed with your Rolling Thunder and Majestic Roar
It helps a lot the supporting!

You can throw anyone back with Rolling Thunder, flash helps you escaping and closing gaps, but it can help a lot your Rolling Thunder

Chosen of the Storm Passive: When Volibear's health drops below 30% of his maximum health, he will heal for 30% of his maximum health over the next 6 seconds. This passive effect has a 120 second cooldown.
This will save you a lot of times, ignite almost cancel the effect of this skill, but at least you don't die :3
On Duels (x1) this is simply epic
Rolling Thunder Active: For the next 4 seconds, Volibear will gain 15% movement speed. This bonus increases to 45% movement speed when headed toward a nearby visible enemy champion. Additionally, Volibear's next autoattack during this time will deal bonus physical damage and will fling the target behind him.
This is your main support skill, it can make anyone vulnerable to your teammates, especially the ADC, on the early game this will feed your ADC if used correctly.
You can combo this extremely good with Majestic Roar and Exhaust for a EXTREME SLOW
You can pursue very well with this skill.
Frenzy Passive: Volibear temporarily gains bonus attack speed after an autoattack. This bonus stacks up to 3 times and lasts for 4 seconds.
Active: While Volibear has 3 stacks of Frenzy, he can activate this ability to bite a target enemy. The stacks won't be consumed. The bite will deal physical damage that scales with his own bonus health. This damage will in turn be increased by 1% for every 1% of the target's missing health.
This skill rips the face of your enemies and kills them... until they are dead... today!
The passive is very good for destroying towers and killing creeps/minions, because it increases a lot of attack speed, with your Thunder Claws it's a very brutal skill.
It's active bites the enemy and does a very good amount of damage, use this when the enemy is ~25% life, because it deals more damage for the amount of life your enemy has lost.
With this build you will have ~4500 health, Frenzy does 15% of your health as damage plus it's base damage (260 maxed)
Majestic Roar Active: Volibear lets out a powerful roar that deals magic damage and slows nearby enemies for 3 seconds. Minions, monsters and pets are feared for the duration as well.
You can slow down champions and fear minions and monsters with this epic roar you have, because you're a motherfu'''ing bear!
This will help a lot the Rolling Thunder and the laning
Thunder Claws Active: For the next 12 seconds, Volibear's autoattacks will blast his target with lightning that will also bounce to up to 3 nearby enemies. Each bolt of lightning will deal magic damage and will only hit each target once
Some think this ultimate isn't good, but on a TF it's extremely useful, and you can troll your enemies by attacking the minions and dealing damage at them without physical contact.

Guide Top


Help doing damage to the minions (usually the mages) for your ADC.
When many minions group you can use your Majestic Roar to advance the lane, because the minions will be feared and stop doing damage to your minions

Guide Top


Ninja Tabi it increases your defense and gives you 10% protection of basic attacks... but if you need magic resist ant tenacity you can buy the Mercury's Treads
Ruby Sightstone You're the support
Warmog's Armor Obviously huge amounts of health and good health regeneration
Frozen Mallet it will help slow down your enemies and give you health and attack, you need attack too
Atma's Impaler very good item for tanks, gives you armor and damage based on your health
Runic Bulwark gives you health, armor, magic resist and buffs your teammates, don't forget you're the support!

Situational Items

Against AD

Thornmail is a good choice
Randuin's Omen gives you health and armor and slows down area
Sunfire Cape gives you health and some area damage

Against AP

Maw of Malmortius Magic resist and very nice shield
Wit's End attack speed and magic resist for a fluffy bear

Guide Top

Team Work

The Rolling Thunder is your most epic skill, you throw your enemies in hell (aka ADC)
You can Gank very well thanks to the Rolling Thunder, you can catch anyone them slow with Majestic Roar giving a free kill for the lane (usually mid) and helping destroying the tower, if possible.
At the Late Game the TFs are important, you are the main starter and can break their formation with the Rolling Thunder, if you kill the target you will have an almost won TF, 5x4 is easy.
Use your Thunder Claws at the start, it will damage many champions, giving your team health advantage.
