riot has openly stated that they would be looking into giving viktor another upgrade level on his passive, as the upgraded form is a great tier 2 item, but fails late game as a tier 3 item.

another problem with viktor is that each upgrade was supposed to change his playstyle during the course of that game, yet they do little to change his playstyle and 90% of viktors go for the e upgrade anyway.


there have been a lot of things suggested in this thread that riot is reading.

suggestions include new, appropriate stats (resists for q, mpen for e), new alterations for his skills (steal resists during q shield, speed boost for allies that go through w), or even ways to alter his ult depending on his upgrade choice. (increased damage or duration for e upgrade, portion of damage from ult heals viktor for q)

another suggestion was to add a weaker upgrade before his current, single upgrade, to more fit the theme of constantly evolving.

adding a weaker upgrade (at say 500 gold) and a third upgrade, at 1500-2000 gold, would allow for his fully upgraded hexcore to cost somewhere between 3000-3500 gold, making it on par with tier 3 items such as Rabadon's Deathcap, Warmog's Armor, and even possibly Trinity Force for example.

what do you guys think? i added a poll with some of the better suggestions.

I voted for option 4.

I think that a three-level item would improve the impact of his passive from the beginning of the game. I would also review some stats that the current upgrades give (for example spellvamp instead of health regen on Agument:Power). The ultimate is good enough as it is, in my opinion.

Or they add a weaker option which is not presented as item. Lets say his passive now is 3AP/level. When the game starts, you get 3 options and must choose before leveling first skill. At that point you choose your optional bonus passive which is not presented as item. It would improve him so much. But they would have to make the bonuses from choosing a path be per level, either its too strong.

I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

I haven't seen many, if any outstanding Viktor AP Carries, so an upgrade to his stats might be in order.

Well it would certainly make it feel like that item slot wasn't a waste of space....I mean really....idk about it augmenting his ultimate though. His abilities yes but his ultimate and an ability? That seems a bit broken. And yes I agree most upgrade his e because its actually worth something. id suggest they make the first hexcore upgrade cost the same as a dorans item. Then scale it from there to something like catalyst or hextech rolver in terms of price. And finally the end product roughly 2k or so maybe slightly less. Either way the buffs to viktor were alright but his passive is absolute **** from my perspective.

^The sad part is that his passive is the most original tool in his kit, imo. His ability to agument spells is what appeals me, so i hope they're actually going to improve the usefulness of that staff.

I had a Viktor wreck my morgana play last night, all though I'm not very good with morgana and that could be why.
