SWALLOW THEIR SOULS!!! Viegar support guide

Learn how to poke, trap, position and finish off enemies with a champion that gets stronger as the game goes on.

Pros

  • Has very good damage and scaling.
  • Becomes an incredible AP damage carry if properly scaled into the game.
  • Has arguably one of the strongest area denial abilities in the game.
  • Wierdly cute.

Cons

  • Very squishy and 3/4 of his abilities are pure damage with no utility.
  • His cage has a fairly long cooldown, especially in early game.
  • One of his passive components require him to last-hit minions, making it useless when played as a support.
  • Pretty sadistic for someone so cute.

Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

So there is something that we do need to talk about, and that is building tank items for VeigarVeigar . You might have seen people who play him on the middle lane build items like Dead Man's PlateDead Man's Plate to have more defense and move faster. Now this is not wrong, but the reason why they have the privilege to do so is because they can fully utilize his passive. Viegar gets bonus max AP by three ways: Hitting enemy champions, killing or assisting in taking them down, and last hitting minions with abilities. Now, let me show you why the last method is the most effective for viegar players to stack AP:

Lets assume a situtation until the first drake, which is at 4 minutes. You play as viegar, you have a minion wave with 4 minions every 30 seconds. For every 8 minions, you manage to last hit 7. Every two waves, you got an attack on the enemy, and until the first drake you somehow managed to get a kill and an assist (and I'm being optimistic here). 

There are a total of 8 waves that came until the first drake. Now let's calculate how many stacks you got from each source: 4 AP from hitting the enemy champions, 10 AP for the kill and assist, and 28 AP from last hitting the minions.

The point is clear: Last hitting minions is the MAIN source in which VeigarVeigar stacks AP, and when you play as a support, you NEVER steal CS from your team. That's why building tank items as VeigarVeigar support is something I believe is not optimal, since you will have less AP to actually impact a fight. That's why we will build items that have AP, but are also affordable and not to fancy. 

For boots, I reccommand having Ionian Boots of LucidityIonian Boots of Lucidity and for the enchant, get either [stasis enchant] or [locket enchant], depending how safe you actually feel.

Summoner Spells

When to take which summoners

Flash
Best spell to ever exist.
Exhaust
Good against all-in champions (AHEM AHEM DIANA AHEM AHEM).
Heal
Good for safer laning and comps with little burst damage.
Ignite
In my opinion, this spell is not optimal, as viegar has an ult that is ment to finish off enemies anyway. It also requires you to be at a relative close range, which can get dangerous.

How to be evil

1. Remember that Dark MatterDark Matter gives vision. Use it to scan bushes and dark places.

2. You can use Event HorizonEvent Horizon and hit the enemy with the edges of the cage when casting if he's already CC'd, as he will be stunned again after.

3. You don't have to use Event HorizonEvent Horizon just to stun; It's also a very effective tool for blocking entries.

4.Save your Primordial BurstPrimordial Burst for enemies with low Health, as it deals more damage the lower they are.

5. Keep thinking about new and evil ideas on how to win the game, even if you are behind.
