How you would play Viktor? Because of his core, he has 3 ways to build himself.

To note:

Yellow:

+3 ability power per level, +220 health and +6 health regen per 5 seconds. Power Transfer increases Viktor's movement speed by 30% for 3 seconds.


Blue:

+3 ability power per level, +200 mana, +10% cooldown reduction, +5 mana regen per 5 seconds. Gravity Field has an additional 30% cast range.


Red:

+3 ability power per level, +45 ability power. Death Ray sets fire to enemies, dealing 30% additional magic damage over 4 seconds.



He can use Yellow to be a great off-tank at top with much regen and HP.

He can use Blue to support very well with a better stun, CDR and HP.

He can use Red to be a great AP-Carry with high AP.


So, which would you prefer?

Almost certain that anything but AP carry will suck on him.

AP Carry. Upgrade Red as soon as possible.

's really the only thing he's going to be good at.

He can't support anyone with his shield and his stun is the only other redeeming quality.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Not at top? I mean, with the yellow upgrade and rylai's, he would have great poking power. Also he can use RoA very well. He then turns into something like vladimir with the build of singed.

And for AP-carry: He is very skill shot dependent and has rather bad ap-ratios, so you just waste your money on AP. Also he gets crushed by many other ap-carries.
He is gonna kill you!!!

+6 health regen is nothing, Regrowth Pendant gives +15.

Wat? How do you even know he loses to other AP carries? He just got released. His AP ratios aren't really any worse than say, Lux.

Yeah, that needs to be buffed.^^ Riot compares mana regen to hp regen again. It should be at least 20 HP5 and 300 HP.

The Mana regen on blue will also need an increase to 10 MP5.

Well, his E costs very much mana and is unreliable, while his q has a way to short range. If you want to use Q, you get catched and you are dead. Otherwise you need too much mana.


BTW: Look at the funny mana costs at his ult: Cost: 125 / 175 / 225 mana

Power Transfer buff: passive stats ********.
Gravity Field buff: Ability buff ****.
Death Ray: JupJupJupJup

But you have to pay for that Hextech upgrade, dont you? Otherwise free 48 AP lvl 1... would be nice.

Not really. The Q is longer range than most TBH and the shield scales with AP, as does the damage.

If you're building straight AP, or AP/CDR, you can get Q off all the time for, basically nothing.

Those are kinda standard ult costs too. Scaling up by 50 per level isn't bad.

Also, free stats for doing nothing but leveling makes up for the other "bad" parts of his core. At level 18, with Red aug, he's got a free 99 AP, that's without masteries or runes too.

So I just played a couple rounds with him, and my first complaint is that they need to fix the cursor on his death laser. after activating the ability it shows you a targeting line as big as say xeraths bolt, when in reality if that itty bitty line doesn't cross the FEET of your opponent nothing happens. Landing that lazer isn't bad but it's definitely harder than i thought it would be.

His ratios aren't terribad, but midgame they feel a little lackluster.

I think a very slight buff is in order for him.
