THERE ARE SOME BUGS WITH MOBAFIRE,IN MY FIRST RUNES DONT GET 2 ARMORS,GET 1 ARMOR AND 1 HP THANKS..ITS JUST A BUG IT GOING TO BE FIXED SOON I BELIEVE :)
ABOUT ME Back to Top
Im a ****ing VOLIBEAR MAIN,hahaha...yeeah what can i say its just too powerful..i mean volibear is super strong even if it seems super weak,believe me this champion once you master him can carry you through low elo like there is no tomorrow...you kill be likely top in high gold,low plat euw cuz ur team trolls or you get kited so hard but anyway volibear still a strong toplaner,yes a strong toplaner

I am currently gold 2 50 lp euw but im not playing only volibear right now as i want to try new champions too..if i was about to play only volibear then i think i would be like plat 4/3 as playing a champion that u know really well makes you think more about the game and objectives than kills or to learn champ mechanics abilities

I have 310k mastery points on volibear and i play him mainly top,i am a strong jungler too but i feel he is better toplane,i always get fed early and have fun in toplane,in jungle you have to give kills to get carried later in the game ,or take the kills for you but then your adc will flame you ,your top will flame you,your mid will flame you and you will eventually lose the game



Let's start by saying that volibear will always be my main and favourite champ,even if he is weak or strong i will continue to play him because it's suited for me,everything it has in his kit suits my playstyle and it makes me happy when i play him,i always have fun even when im losing...the skins of this champion are very funny my favourites are thunder lord and el rayo but also the default one is pretty dope hahaha,i also love his voice kit things however they are called hahahaha
VOLIBEAR PROS/CONS Back to Top
PROS
-Very good if you get ahead early game,he is simply a god and can 1v9 if you are 5/0 min 15
-Good passive,i got saved by this ******** passive more than 1000 times believe me
-Very High and UNEXPECTED damage from your W,add coup de grace and its gg
-Can chase you down all the map thanks to q and e,late game their cooldows are low too
-Very good Ultimate damage and you can kill low enemy champ by auto attacking minions
-Your E fears minions so you wont get damage when you try to trade fast
-Tanky asf
-I think there are a lot more pros but i can't remember right now,i will update this when i will remember


CONS
-When you dont have your passive up,2 mins cooldown you will most likely lose a 1v2,1v3 fight even if you are ahead
-When you dont have your R up,you can lose a fight
-There arent many ways to build him in terms of items,you get tanky items that s all as your W damage scales with hp..you can try to go full ap but the ap scaling on R is just too low so is bad and troll
-Good early/mid teamfights,late game just peel or you lose
-Bad at taking rift herald alone,yes also dont drake alone or things like that,you lose so much health and you risk to lose the drake too if junglers come,same thing with herald
HOW TO PLAY EARLY GAME Back to Top
When you start the game you will may notice that you are so mana hungry so the thing you want to do in order to win games and master this champ is to NEVER USE W TO FARM MINIONS,EXCEPT FROM CANNON MINION (FOR HIM YOU CAN USE Q OR W AS U WANT IF YOU FEEL YOU LOSE IT) otherwise please learn to last hit minions undertower or you wont be able to dominate..if you really struggle then try him in the jungler role


Ok so once you mastered the last hitting thing,you want to play passive early levels,you start level 1 with E just in case if the enemy jumps on you,you just E out...or E and auto attacks until aftershock procs but be aware,stay near your tower ESPECIALLY at level 1...level 2 you want to take q just in case,maybe the jungler could come and i think its useless to take w level 2 idk why.. if jungler come and you have e and q up then its a guaranteed kill as you have freezed the wave and are last hitting, the enemy will be pushed and you have strong cc to lock him,he wont be able to escape..not even with flash,if you get this advantage you start maxing out w and have fun boi...if you dont get this advantage you start maxing out W and wait for a good pick ofc,always undertower until you get the lead,from level 6 you can engage as u want but be aware of enemy jungler and midlaner also support


The things said above are just my personal playstyle..maybe there are volibear players that dont freeze the wave and just go in q,e,auto attacks,ignite,w but i think if you arent atleast level 4/5 you wont be able to kill any enemy because having only 1 point in w is not enough and what i like to do ALWAYS IS TO MAKE THE ENEMY THINK I DONT HAVE DAMAGE TO KILL HIM SO I PLAY PASSIVE AND LET HIM PUSH,ONE I HAVE 2/3 POINTS IN W AND HE IS PUSHED IN WITHOUT FULL HP,I GO ALL IN BABY AND THAT'S HOW YOU CAN SURPRISE ENEMIES WITH YOUR W DAMAGE,i do it like this:

so consider im undertower...im level 6 i have 3 points in w which is huge,he is like 70% from trades and etc.. and i am full health or not but i use the potion i have from start(i do this strategy only when i start doran shield) so what i do now is try to bait him hit me while i have only 1 minion undertower,the tower kills the minion and meanwhile i q him,after q he wont expect to get damage from tower and you after 0.7 seconds E,dont instantly E ofc,after that he will be like 20% or even less,auto attack him and ALWAYS AUTO ATTACK A LOT BEFORE USING W EVEN IF W IS AVAILABLE,AUTO ATTACK UNTIL YOU CANT ANYMORE THEN W,W DOES MORE DAMAGE TO LOWER HEALTH ENEMIES ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT,AND OFC WITH COUP DE GRACE HE WILL BE DONE..that is my strategy i dont really run ignite i dont think i need it,teleport in my opinion is much better on volibear but that doesnt mean you have to play like that,it's just what i do
HOW TO PLAY MID GAME Back to Top
mid game im 80% of my games like 5/0 so i just have fun destroying towers,yes destroy towers and focus objectives the enemy will come at you if you can fight,do it if not just go out and recall..keep the lead dont chase for kills focus objectives,drakes,towers,herald,baron and keep up the farm,you,when you are 5/0 you really want to have titanic hydra,mercury treads and sterak or spirit visage ATLEAST



well considering you are fed like 5/0 there is not much you can do,the enemy wont run at you anymore,alone..and you have to keep you advantage,take objectives,if you cant take top lane tower, go mid and gank or tower dive with flash then take mid tower,or just rift herald,or teleport bot lane or invade enemy jungler,there are many things to do JUST DONT SIT IN LANE WITHOUT DOING NOTHING BEING 5/0,if the enemy toplaner wont let you take the turret just do the things above


playing volibear from behind instead is difficult but not that hard,you will still be useful for your team considering you have a team ofc. If you are behind never look for fights,never ever never ever ever never,just TEAM fights,and in team fights engage and q the most fed enemy,if you cant then q the enemy with most damage,dont q a thresh,dont q a tank like cho gath or rammus,dont q a support when you can q an adc,because it makes you lose games throwing your spells in the wrong champions.
Always think when you engage and what you engage,ofc if you see an alone nami u q her for free kill but im talking about being behind and having a team fight,if you are ahead you can have but dont risk too much
HOW TO PLAY LATE GAME Back to Top
This is where you start to become weak as every enemy has built armor and magic resist...IN LATE GAME YOU DONT WANT TO SPLIT PUSH IF YOU ARE LOSING TEAM FIGHTS AND YOU DONT WANT TO FIGHT ALONE 1V1 EVEN IF YOU WIN,DONT FIGHT

YOUR ****ING JOB AS A FULL TANK,DECENT DAMAGE IS TO SACRIFICE YOURSELF FOR THE CARRY,IT will be most likely the adc but there are scenarions where i peel for midlaner or even for support lol and get honors ez ahaha

So late game you kinda suck,to be honest i dont really feel the damage i had earlier in the game anymore BUT YOU CAN STILL DO A LOT AND CARRY,I HAD MANY GAMES 1V9 BUT I WON THOSE GAMES BY HELPING MY TEAM OUT,RAISING THEIR MORALE,LETTING THEM FARM AND PROTECT THEM TO SCALE AND IN THE FINAL WE WON I GOT HONORED 9 TIMES THAT GAMES,EVEN THE ENEMY TEAM HONORED ME AND ADDED ME IN MY FRIEND LIST,I SAID TO MY TEAM THAT GAME WE WONT SURRENDER UNTIL THE NEXUS FALLS AND WE WON THE GAME THANKS TO MY CHARISMA SKILLS AND THE SCALING WE HAD FROM ADC,MIDLANE AND JUNGLE..even if i was playing in silver 2 that doesnt mean it cant work in higher elos,it still works in gold tho and soon i will try it in plat myself
