Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png : Flash is a must have Summoner Spell on any Champion.
12.png: If you feel you're going to get pushed out of lane often, Teleport can get you back fast so you don't miss much CS.
3.png : Take this against most assassins, it can turn a trade around.
21.png : Really good vs. long ranged bursty Champions like Lux. You won't be getting in range to Exhaust them.
14.png: Ignite is something I only recommend if you know you have early kill pressure.
6.png: Recently nerfed, but can still be good. I won't recommend it much though. If you like Ghost though, take it. It's certainly not bad.
1.png: Can be good vs. Ryze, but that's about it.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Wanderer vs. Savagery: Swiftness can help with roaming or getting back to lane. If you want to make last hitting with auto attacks easier though, take Savagery.

Secret Stash vs. Assassin: Both are good, just a matter of playstyle. Try both & see what works better for you.

Merciless vs. Meditation: After the mastery nerfs, I run Meditation for the mana regen. Merciless is okay I guess, but Meditation is a lot better now.

Bandit vs. Dangerous Game vs. Greenfather's Gift: Bandit is only good on Veigar Support. Greenfather's Gift is a big nope. Dangerous Game is the only good mastery here for middle lane Veigar.

Precision vs. Intelligence: Intelligence for 45% CDR. Precision isn't good anymore after the mastery nerfs.


Stormraider's Surge vs. Thunderlord's Decree: This is a matter of playstyle. Thunderlord's is great early but it falls off late while Stormraider's scales quite nicely.

Sorcery vs. Fury: Sorcery. Always. No need for attack speed on a burst mage.

Feast vs. Exposed Weakness vs. Fresh Blood: Feast is the only good option here. Exposed Weakness is more of a support thing. Fresh Blood I've never liked.

Vampirism vs. Natural Talent: Both are good. Vampirism gives you sustain, Natural Talent gives you some nice scalings. Try both & see which you prefer.

Double Edged Sword vs. Bounty Hunter vs. Battle Trance: Double Edged Sword is very risky on Veigar. His range isn't that long & you WILL be poked a lot in lane. Bounty Hunter is amazing for Veigar if you can kill everyone on the enemy team. You get a lot of damage from it. Battle Trance is only good on tanks that get into long trades.

veigarpassive.png: Phenomenal Evil Power is Veigar's Passive. You get Ability Power for every minion you last hit with your Q Baleful Strike. You also get Ability power for hitting a Champion with an ability. You can stack this very well with farming & poking.

veigarbalefulstrike.png: Baleful Strike is Veigar's Q. As mentioned above, you get free ability power for last hitting with this ability. This is why you max it first. Lower its CD, raise it's damage. This is what makes Veigar so strong late game.

veigardarkmatter.png: Dark Matter is Veigar's W. This is an AoE spell that does massive damage after a short delay. You're not able to land this spell effectively without your E, Event Horizon. I like to put a point in this at level 10 to increase its damage.

veigareventhorizon.png : Event Horizon is Veigar's E. This is a massive AoE stun. This spell is necessary to land your Dark Matter. I max this second to increase its duration & lower its CD.

veigarr.png: Primordial Burst is Veigar's Ultimate. It scales off enemy missing health & your own ability power & is a point & click Nuke. This will tilt the enemy team as it does massive damage.

You can max your W second over E if you like. It's not wrong, in fact it can be quite good. All depends on your playstyle. Try both, see what you like.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    This is the start you'll want to go with. Doran's with two pots/biscuits. You'll just want to use Q pre-6 and E if you get ganked.
    First back

Core Items

Situational Items

Starting Items 

Doran's Ring & 2 pots will be your starting items. 1056.pngDoran's will give you some mana sustain while you stack up, while, potions can heal you for any harass you take in trades.2033.png You could also start with a Corrupting Potion if you want the HP sustain.

First Back

Your first back is based on what situation you're in.

3802.png1056.png: This is my usual first back. Lost Chapter gives nice mana regen with 2 Doran's. You could buy 1001.pngBoots instead of a second Doran's if you feel you don't need the extra mana.

1082.png: Something I like to do in poke-heavy lanes is buy a Dark Seal over a second Doran's Ring because of the the increased healing from potions. It's also really nice if you get fed.

3070.png1001.png: I don't do this much, but in some lanes (Mainly when it's a Ryze/Morg lane) Tear can be good for mana sustain, & Seraph's shield will be helpful later.

3010.png: If you want to go Rod of Ages.

1029.png: Hard lane vs. AD.

1057.png: Hard lane vs. AP.

Core Items

3165.png: Morello is an amazing item, 100 AP 100 Mana, 20% CDR, Grievous Wounds, Mana on kills/assists. This is one of the best items for Veigar.

3089.png: Deathcap gives an amazing AP boost & scales great with your passive. You can usually go this second most of the time.

3135.png: Decent AP on this, & % magic pent for nuking squishies & melting tanks. Does tons of damage.

3020.png: Normally these, others are good too.

2139.png: Extra late game power. Also gives you some true damage.

Situational Items

3027.png: I like to get this in lanes where I don't have much pressure for sustain.

3048.png: If you went the Tear route. Shield can help you late.

3116.png: To kite some tanks. Stats were nerfed, but I still find it good in some situations.

3151.png:  Highly situational. I only get this if the enemy team has some serious tanks.

3001.png3157.png: Pick one for extra CDR, a bit of defense & AP. Abyssal will grant you extra damage vs. squishies & tanks, Zhonya's has its active. I personally prefer Abyssal, but Zhonya's is good.

3285.png: More burst is always fun. I like to get this if I don't need tankiness. Bursts tanks & squishies quite easy.

3100.png: You can replace your Boots with this late game & take out towers really fast.

3158.png: If you don't want Sorcs or you're lacking CDR & want a lower CD on Summoner Spells, these are great.

3047.png: Vs. Yasuo, Talon, Zed. Also good against high AD comp.

3111.png: Vs. a high cc comp. You will be focused more than likely. These can help quite a lot with that. Also great against Champions like Lux, Syndra or Ryze in lane.

3742.png3102.png: Some fun tank items if you need them over a 6th bursty item. Deadman's for armor & movement speed, Banshee's for MR & a shield.

3026.png: Armor, MR & a second life. This is a good item for just about any Champion. I don't suggest it in all situations, but it can be really good.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Recommended items: Negatron Cloak > Morello > Mercury Treads
Recommended Spells: 21.pngBarrier or 3.pngExhaust.

Ahri is very annoying with her Q poke & charm. If you can avoid the charm though you will win the trade. She's very vulnerable without her Charm & it has a pretty huge CD early on. Be careful for her all in at level 6.

VS

Akali

Hard

Recommended items: Negatron Cloak > Morello > Sorc Shoes
Recommended Spells:3.png Exhaust

Akali can be painful to lane against. Once she hits 6 she can easily 100-0 you. If she tries to dive you, Exhaust her & combo her. It should be enough to kill her with turret there.

VS

Anivia

Hard

Recommended items: Morello > Sorc Shoes > Void Staff
Recommended Spells: 12.pngTeleport

Really hard to burst Anivia alone early due to her egg. Gotta ask for a gank or poke her down. Her damage isn't as high now due to nerfs, but she can still burst you if you're not careful.

VS

Annie

Medium

Recommended Items: Morello > Mercury Treads
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Annie can burst you pre-6 if they know what they're doing. Be careful for her Flash Tibbers after 6. Mercury Treads can be good against her because of her stuns.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Easy

Recommended Items: Morello > Sorc Shoes
Recommended Spells: 12.pngTeleport.

Pretty easy to kill Aurelion Sol as long as he doesn't roam. Pre-6 his poke with W is very annoying. Just farm it out. He'll rush Rod of Ages or GLP. While it gives health, it doesn't give much else so he still dies quite fast.

VS

Azir

Easy

Recommended Items: Morello > Sorc Shoes
Recommended Spells: 12.pngTeleport or 21.pngBarrier

Azir isn't not much trouble aside from the early game poke. Try to let him push the lane. If you fight too close to his tower, he'll just ult you under it & kill you easily, but if he's pushed up you can take advantage of that & kill him.

VS

Brand

Easy

Recommended Items:  Negatron Cloak > Morello > Mercury Treads
Recommended Spells: 21.pngBarrier.

While Brand's damage is high, he is extremely immobile & squishy. You just have to watch out for his burst early. He's not to be underestimated, even if behind. If you struggle with Brand early, I'd suggest buying some Merc Treads. They'll help when he stuns you.

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard

Recommended Items: Morello > Mercury Treads
Recommended Spells: 21.pngBarrier.

Cassio is very annoying to lane against. She pokes you, can kill you quite easy pre-6 if you aren't careful. If she misses her ult, take advantage of that & try to all in her.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Recommended Items: Rod of Ages.

While not seen mid often, Cho'Gath can be very annoying if he rushes MR. As long as he doesn't rush MR you should be fine against him. Rod of Ages can help you with his missing health ult damage.

VS

Corki

Medium

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Exhaust.

Corki is played so much in mid right now, so much that he's hit my ban list. It seems weird, but Abyssal Scepter is good here. He's a weird Champion that builds AD, but does mostly magic damage.

VS

Diana

Hard

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter, Zhonya's Hourglass.
Recommended Spells: Exhaust, Barrier.

Diana just hard counters Veigar. She's really hard to lane against, & unless you rush MR you're kinda screwed. Abyssal first item here is a requirement to survive unless you can dodge her Q.

VS

Ekko

Easy

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Barrier, Exhaust.

Can be very annoying to kill because of his ult, but you can probably bait it out. As long as you can bait the ult you'll have an easy time fighting Ekko, if not, it'll be a hard time.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter if AP, Zhonya's Hourglass if AD.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Ezreal isn't played much mid, but when he does he's just an annoyance really. He can blink out of your stun, but you can kill him pretty easy without it. Just be aware that he can kill you easily just as easy as he can kill you.

VS

Fizz

Hard

Recommended Items: Zhonya's Hourglass, CDR boots.
Recommended Spells: Exhaust.

Fizz is cancer to everyone, especially someone as immobile as Veigar. Jumps out of you stun, one shots you, spams that tilting laugh. This Champion is the plague of mid lane.

Go Lost Chapter into a Zhonya's Hourglass into CDR boots.Zhonya's active will help you survive his ultimate. CDR boots will allow you to have your Exhaust & Flash up more often. Then finish your Morello.

VS

Gangplank

Hard

Recommended Items: Rod of Ages.
Recommended Spells: Exhaust.

Gangplank is annoying, he's hard to kill. You can't ever stun him as long as his W is up. This is a lane where I suggest just trying to farm up & poke him down with Q.

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

Recommended Items: Honestly just go Morello into Deathcap.
Recommended Spells: Probably Teleport.

Very easy matchup for Veigar. You can Q farm his turrets & gain yourself some free ability power. He's also really squishy so you can kill him for even more stacks.

If he pulls out a Zzrot, farm that too.

VS

Jayce

Hard

Recommended Items: Zhonya's Hourglass.
Recommended Spells: Barrier, Exhaust.

Jayce will rush a Hexdrinker & then it's near impossible for you to kill him without ganks. Try to avoid his poke, take Exhaust & just try to farm up.

VS

Karma

Hard

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Karma's early game poke with Mantra Q is insane. She also rushes MR normally so she's a massive pain early game. Try to get farm & you can beat her mid to late game.

VS

Karthus

Easy

Recommended Items: Just go Morello into Deathcap.
Recommended Spells: Teleport.

He's very immobile, can't really do much against you. Karthus is a easy lane to get fed off of. The most he can do is ult & get a kill or two bot. Zhonya's to survive his ult is necessary if he gets fed like that.

VS

Kassadin

Hard

Recommended Items: Rod of Ages, Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Kassadin is highly annoying in lane due to his point & click harass. A good Kassa will not let you kill him. Go for RoA & just survive the laning phase.

VS

Katarina

Hard

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Katarina is really cancerous. She was an okay matchup before her rework, now it's very painful. My best advice is to not die to her in lane phase.

VS

Kennen

Easy

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Kennen got very weak with the nerfs to Protobelt & Rylai's but he can still be pretty dangerous if underestimated. As long as he doesn't get on top of you, you should be fine.

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter, Swifties.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

AP Kog'Maw is just annoying really. He's very squishy, & immobile. Super easy to kill him in lane. Just dodge his ooze & you can kill him pretty easy.

VS

LeBlanc

Easy

Recommended Items: Banshee's Veil.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

After LeBlanc got hit with like 10 nerfs, she barely does any damage. I'd still suggest Barrier, but for items you probably don't need to rush Banshee's anymore.

VS

Lissandra

Medium

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter, Mercury Treads.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

The splash damage on her Q can be VERY annoying in lane. She can E out of your stun, so be careful when trying to use it aggressively.

VS

Lulu

Easy

Recommended Items: Just go Morello into Deathcap.
Recommended Spells: Teleport.

Lulu mid isn't a common thing anymore, but when she is mid, her early poke is very annoying. You absolutely destroy her after 6 though.

VS

Lux

Medium

Recommended Items: Mercury Treads.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

She pokes you from afar, but as long as you can get in range of her she'll just melt. Avoid her snare & destroy her. Take Barrier to eat the damage from her ult early. I'd also recommended Mercury Treads in lane for her snare.

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Recommended Items: Quicksilver Sash.
Recommended Spells: Barrier

Perma-pushes you & can all in you at 6. Plays way too passive when his shield is down. Buy a Quicksilver Sash so you can get out of his ultimate. If he gets close when his shield is down, all in him.

VS

Morgana

Medium

Recommended Items: Rod of Ages.
Recommended Spells: Teleport.

Morganna can't be solo-killed by you easy. I'd suggest building Rod of Ages & just focusing on waveclear. Take Teleport to get back to lane faster. Stay behind your minions & she can't kill you.

VS

Orianna

Hard

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Her early poke is annoying, & from what I've seen can shred teams even when behind. All I can suggest is try to farm up & buy an early Negatron Cloak.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

Recommended Items: Zhonya's Hourglass.
Recommended Spells: Exhaust.

Pantheon is a very aggro mid laner & will deny you cs & rush Hexdrinker. He can also easily outroam you with his ult. Just try to farm & ask your jungler for a gank.

VS

Quinn

Medium

Recommended Items: Zhonya's Hourglass
Recommended Spells: Exhaust

This matchup can be easy as long as she doesn't go for an Edge of Night. Quinn is very dangerous to you because of lethality. Just try your best to farm up unless she doesn't for Edge, in which case you can probably kill her.

VS

Ryze

Hard

Recommended Items: Mercury Treads.
Recommended Spells: Teleport, Cleanse.

Ryze has a lot of early waveclear & a point n click snare. He's also kinda tanky early so just farm up. He'll most likely roam, so you could take TP to counter roam, but then you won't have cleanse for his snare.

VS

Syndra

Medium

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter, Mercury Treads, Banshee's Veil.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Syndra has a lot of early game poke & will deny you CS. She can easily 100-0 you early if you're not careful. Try to avoid her poke, farm up & attempt to land a stun. This is a matchup where an early Banshee's wouldn't be a bad idea.

VS

Taliyah

Easy

Recommended Items: Just go Morello into Deathcap.
Recommended Spells: Barrier, Teleport.

Taliyah is pretty weak. Her early poke is insane but after 6 she just falls off. She can still out roam with her ult, so be careful of that.

VS

Talon

Easy

Recommended Items: Zhonya's Hourglass.
Recommended Spells: Exhaust.

You counter him now that he can't blink out of your stun. He still does massive damage & roams fast though. Just be weary of his early burst.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Teleport.

Twisted Fate is arguably the easiest matchup for Veigar next to Heimerdinger. He's very immobile & you can zone him quite easily with your stun. He can still out roam you with his ult though. You can however, follow with a Teleport if you like.

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Recommended Items: Rod of Ages.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

If you get hit by his combo, you're done for. As long as you avoid his combo though you'll be fine. Maybe buy Rod of Ages here for health against his true damage.

VS

Viktor

Hard

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter, Mercury Treads.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Viktor has point & click harass & a lot of burst. He can chase you down with his ult. I suggest farming up & trying to not die.

VS

Vladimir

Hard

Recommended Items: Rod of Ages.
Recommended Spells: Teleport.

Rushes MR, heals, out-sustains you hard. You could take Ignite & try to kill him, but I'd just take Teleport so you can get back to lane quick if he pushes you out.

VS

Xerath

Hard

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter, Mercury Treads.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Xerath's poke in lane will deny you farm. The best you can do is buy Mercury Treads & try to farm up. Be careful for his ult at 6 as it takes up half of your lane.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Recommended Items: Ninja Tabi, Zhonya's Houtglass.
Recommended Spells: Exhaust.

Very annoying early game. He'll deny you CS with his windwall & can potentially burst you at 6. I consider this a "Who screws up first" matchup.

VS

Zed

Hard

Recommended Items: Zhonya's Hourglass.
Recommended Spells: Exhaust.

Zed is honestly just as bad as Fizz for me. He's really hard to pin down, rushes Hexdrinker & can just easily 100-0 you.& now he also buys Edge of Night, you just can't get rid of this guy man.

VS

Ziggs

Easy

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Barrier, Teleport.

He has super annoying poke, but if you can dodge his Q you should be okay. He has no real escape aside from his W. You should be able to kill him quite easy.

VS

Zilean

Easy

Recommended Items: Rod of Ages,
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Zilean can't really be bursted pre-6 or post 6 by you. Just try to sustain in lane & farm up. You'll be able to burst him eventually. Patience.

VS

Zyra

Medium

Recommended Items: Abyssal Scepter.
Recommended Spells: Barrier.

Zyra has a lot more early damage than you. She can easily burst you down, but you can also burst her down. Whoever stuns who first wins.

Champions that synergize well with Veigar Back to Top

A lot of Champions synergize well with Veigar. But I'm going to go over some of my favorite Champions to have on my team when I play Veigar.

432.png: Bard's ultimate & stun can let you land your combo with ease. He also provides a small heal & speed boost. Not to mention how fun (& dangerous) using a Bard tunnel is.
150.png : Gnar's cc makes it easier for you to land your combo & he's a tanky frontline. Gnar's ultimate can let you get a nice stun off, or he can ult them into your stun.
21.png: Miss Fortune's ultimate with your stun is amazing in team fights. You stun several people, she can ult & shred through an enemy team with no effort at all.
427.png: Ivern can save you with his never ending shields & can snare someone down with his Q so you can combo them.
117.png : Lulu can speed you up to get you in range for a stun, she also has a slow, which can help you land your stun & combo, alternatively her speed up can be used as a polymorph to keep an assassin, bruiser, or tank off you & the team.
267.png: Similar to Lulu, Nami can speed you up to help you get in range for a stun combo. Nami also provides some nice cc with her bubble & ultimate, she also provides some really nice healing.
110.png: His ultimate can help you combo an enemy. You also help him with your stun, so he can land his stuff & the enemy can't do much about it.
59.png : Good ult from Jarvan can let you combo an entire team & save you your stun & an extremely tanky frontline.
54.png: Malphite's ultimate lets you combo multiple people. A hyper tank to keep you protected too.
115.png: You probably won't have this guy on your team often as Veigar, but his W can knock people into your stun to allow you to combo them.

Champions that are annoying for Veigar Back to Top

114.png: Fiora is annoying for many reasons. She can parry everything you have, she can burst you faster than you can burst her, she's hard to get away from, & she will most likely target you. If she blows her parry & gets cc'd though, she's pretty harmless to you.
86.png: Garen will most likely flash silence you, some Garens will even flat out flash burst you because they can do that. I'd suggest a 3116.pngRylai's  & kite him as he is vulnerable to kiting.
164.png: Camille is great at catching immobile, squishy targets. You don't have counterplay to her ult outside of 3157.pngZhonya's Hourglass.
223.png: Tahm Kench is great at saving his team when they get stuck in your stun. He's also very tanky having a shield that could potential be 90% of his health.
2.png: Olaf is a Champion I truly hate. You can't stun him because of his ultimate, you can't get away from him because you're immobile, he's too tanky to proc Stormraider's on & he can 100-0 you easily. He's really hard to deal with.
39.png: Irelia is a tanky bursty bruiser. She has passive tenacity, so rip your stun, she will most likely buy Mercury Treads to increase that tenacity, & she will also buy a Maw making it really hard to burst her down.
57.png: Maokai will keep you cc'd so you can't do anything in the fights. He's really tanky too so you can't focus him.
111.png: Nautilus will get to you. Hook, ult, shield. His point & click knock up will get you killed in team fights most of the time. You can 3157.pngZhonya's it though.
107.png: Rengar is annoying in the sense that he will 100-0 you before you can even get off your stun. I'd suggest buying a 3157.pngZhonya's & hope you can click it before he kills you.

Lane phase Veigar Back to Top

Veigar's early game is very weak, pre-6 that is. You'll want to just Q mainly, it costs a lot of mana to use other spells, but if your Jungler ganks using your E & W would be nice assistance for them. Your laner will more than likely try to poke you out of your lane & deny you CS. Try your best to avoid the poke & get as much CS as possible, or poke them back to take advantage of your passive.

At level 6, you are capable of killing your lane opponent. At this point you probably have 3802.pngLost Chapter & either a  second 1056.pngRing, 1082.pngDark Seal, or 1001.png tier 1 Boots. If your opponent buys an early 1057.pngNegatron Cloak, or 3010.pngCatalyst it is harder to kill them. I can suggest 2 things with this: Roam & help another lane, ask for a gank, or poke them a lot with your Q.

You don't need to get kills in lane to scale with Veigar. Kills make you scale faster, but they're not 100% necessary. Just farming will turn you into the late game monster you're meant to be. The more farm you end up with, the better. You'll be one shotting the enemy team in time.

Roaming potential with Veigar Back to Top

As I mentioned above, Veigar has pretty strong roam potential after level 6. You can go bot & try to stun someone. You will either burn a flash, or kill someone. Even if you don't get the kill, as long as you get the assist, you still get 5 stacks of your passive.

Like with every Champion, roaming has its price. You can lose quite a bit of CS roaming. If you have 12.pngTeleport though, you don't tend to lose as much in the process of roaming. As long as you get a Summoner, or kill off it, it was a worthwhile roam.


I suggest roaming against people that bought early MR or health, people you won't be killing in lane.I  also suggest buying early tier 1 boots  to make the roam faster, as you are slow otherwise.

Veigar in teamfights Back to Top

With Veigar your goal is to burst someone down with your Dark Matter. Let your frontline engage, then drop your stun & burst someone down, preferably the ADC or their mid. You can also burst their jungler if they're squishy or a massive threat to the rest of your team. Try to take out the most dangerous target on the enemy team without dying.

You can Q ult the ADC to instantly delete them from the fight. Same can be done to their mid. Tanks (depending on who they are) are a lot harder to burst. Champions like 78.pngPoppy or 86.png Garen are insanely difficult to burst down, due to shields or insane health regen, but Champions like 150.pngGnar or 75.png Nasus (as long as your top lane didn't feed them too much) are still difficult but not as difficult to burst down. They're still tanks, but at least they don't have 3 shields or insane regen.


When you burst someone, you'll need to use your Q to weaken the rest of the enemy team until your other abilities come up or you finish the fight. Veigar is very good in fights with a huge AoE stun & high burst damage. Just know though you'll probably be the target with that much AP, supports like 117.pngLulu or 40.pngJanna can help keep you as well as your ADC alive in the fights.

CC will hard shut you down in team fights. So Champions like 111.pngNautilus or 254.pngVi are effective at keeping you down. You also die quite easy because you're a squishy, so remember that.
