How it works

  1. You play poke oriented Mage.
  2. You rush Luden's Companion.
  3. You build AP items, going full damage.

How to play

  1. Playing AP Vel'Koz build, your default rush is Luden's Companion. In cases, when an enemy team is full of tanks and HP stackers, go Liandry's Torment.
  2. Adapt to an enemy team. Are they full of tanks, and they rush tons of Magic Resist? You rush Void Staff as #2 or #3 item to counter MR stacking. Their team has champs with lots of healing? Rush Oblivion Orb as #2 item (upgrade to Morellonomicon as 4th or 5th item).
  3. Somebody is going after you each fight? Always getting ulted by enemy assassins? Rush Zhonya's Hourglass.

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. When laning, use Void Rift to kill minions while building stacks of Organic Deconstruction on your opponent. You can then follow up with your other abilities.
  2. Shooting Plasma Fission diagonally and splitting at maximum range allows you to hit opponents that are out of the range of the initial missile, but is more challenging to pull off.
  3. Be very careful about when to use Life Form Disintegration Ray. Many champions have abilities that can interrupt the spell.
