How to play

  1. You start with Guardian's Horn. Your #1 rush should be item that counters enemy team most (MR or Armor item). Get Jak'Sho as #2 item. Then adapt.
  2. Guardian's Horn is a surprisingly good item for its price. You can keep it for very long time (or even have it as 6th item).
  3. 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.
  4. Be careful to not waste Aftershock. Try timing it and keeping it for going in.
  5. Even if you are not going damage items and playing Tank Viego, you will still have plenty of damage thanks to Q (target's current health + double on-hit) and semi-execute (target's missing health) on your Heartbreaker (R)
  6. You can be really good peeler. Enemy going after your carry? Stay close to your carry and stun with Spectral Maw (W) to peel the enemy off. More enemies coming? You can use Heartbreaker (R) to knock enemies back.
  7. Harrowed Path (E) is a very interesting tool. Of course you can use it for movement/attack speed buff, but you can use it for scare and intimidation. Enemy team will not check your items right away. If they see your E, they usually will start playing safer, backing up or not engaging.
