How it works

  1. You play Support who goes tanky.

How to play

  1. Identify your role within the team (engage, peel, frontline)
  2. If your team needs engage, go Trailblazer and Shurelya's Battlesong
  3. If your team needs peel, go Knight's Vow and Locket of the Iron Solari.
  4. Knight's Vow is a surprisingly good item. Buy it and use it if you have carry or bruiser/fighter who is doing well.
  5. You need to adapt your items to the game. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  6. Max E!
  7. Your Guardian rune scales with your Passive (AP!) making it stronger.
  8. Thanks to your Passive, you have lots of AP. Your Ultimate is still a good finisher even with this build.
  9. Do not be shy and do not wait for 'special moment'. You have the best engaging tool available - your E!

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Use Event Horizon to increase your chances of landing Dark Matter.
  2. Veigar is extremely Mana and Cooldown Reduction dependent. Try buying items with these stats in order to increase the effectiveness of your passive and Baleful Strike.
  3. Veigar is very fragile. It is valuable to select at least one summoner spell that can be used defensively.
