Summoner Spells Back to Top

Always pick flash 4.png on Vel'Koz. You have no escape in your kit, and if you have to rely on your cc to survive ganks, you wont be able to do alot. For second summoner spell you can choose for ignite if you want to go aggressive. This is really good against melee champs on midlane like 157.png 238.png 245.png 105.png. However against Fizz you should rather go exhaust or barrier, since he can easily burst you down at 6. Against Zed you can get an easy kill and after that you start building your Zhonya and he wont be able to kill you anymore without ganks (same for Yasuo). If you play against a strong champ, and you are sure they won't pick ignite, you should get heal instead of barrier, since heal is more effective.

Teleport/cleanse are good options aswell, but this depends on your opponent/enemy team comp.

On midlane you can start W velkozW.png. This will help you clearing waves early and you will have lvl 2 advantage. You can use this to put a point on E velkozE.png and do an early E W combo. If you land it combined with your passive and thunderlord's decree your opponent will have to use his health potions and maybe he will use flash. When you reach lvl 3 you should try to get a first kill (first blood).


Another way to start is beginning Q velkozQ.png which is in my opinion a better start because you can poke your opponent out of his lane and prevent him from farming. Put your second point on E and then on W then you can still try to get that first kill.
Don't use your E to much in lane, especially not in early. When the jungler ganks, you can use this to avoid getting killed/using summoners.

Max your Q first, this is your best ability, however maxing W isn't that bad either. If you max W and get a E W R combo on your opponent you will almost always have a kill. E is your last ability to max because it has low damage and it doesn't scale that well. In lane you should use 1 W stack to clear the wave and then 1 Q (hit it on 3 minions). This will restore almost all the mana you've used. Always keep 1 W stack to use it for your E W combo. Late game you can waveclear with E W on the casters and W Q on the melee minions.


 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Health potions ( biscuits )

Core Items

    Morellonomicon is your most important item. Start building it with Lost Chapter. Sorcerer's shoes are the best option, Ionian boots are pretty nice aswell if you lack some cooldown reduction.
    This is a good item, gives alot of ap, good passive and gives you better waveclear with W.
    Since his rework, all Vel'Koz needs is ap, so Rabadon's is a really good choice

Situational Items

    If you're up against Zed or Yasuo, you should try to get a Zhonya's as soon as possible. Especially against Zed. This will make his ult completely useless if you time your Zhonya's well.
    Liandry's is a good option against tanky champions with alot of health like Mundo, Sejuani, ...
    Buy this item if you wan't to avoid getting chased down by assasins. It also synergizes well with Liandry's. If you buy the Liandry's try to pick up Rylai's aswell. It also makes you tankier which can help you survive longer in teamfights.
    If you feel like you are missing your damage you can always pick up a void staff. This isn't the best option (ult and passive are true damage), but it can help you out.
    If you can, you should try to pick up this build. It's a really strong build, you will end up with 800-900 ap (with blue buff and elixir) and you'll be tanky aswell. Instead of Zhonya's you can go Rylai's here aswell to be even more tanky and deal even more damage.
    Need magic resist?

Vel'Koz with a full ap build has never been so strong like he is now. With 700 ap ( which you can have easy in an average game with an average build ) your ult velkozR.png will deal around 1500 true damage. You're passive velkozpassive.png will deal alot more aswell. As soon as you have Morellonomicon you will be able to dominate your lane with just landing Q, then you follow up with E W and ult. Try to do this combo each time you have your ult up. If you don't have ult, the cooldown reduction granted from morello will also help you stack your passive faster with landing Q's.

VS

Ahri

Easy

Ahri is an easy matchup. Early she can't out damage you and you just have to push the wave under her turret. Here I would suggest maxing W if you want to push the lane.

Ahri is a bad champ to farm under turret, she will use all her mana ( Q and W ) to get the creeps, and will be out of mana faster than you think. Although, you should be aware that she can interrupt your channel (ult) with her charm. The 3 dashes on her ult will make it harder to kill her but lategame you will be more useful than her.

VS

Akali

Easy

Akali is an easy matchup, just like most of the melee champs. You can poke her with auto attacks and Q. She will have to get close to farm so here you push the wave aswell. However, you should care when she reaches 6, she might be able to kill you. When she use her akalismokebomb.png you just E W somewhere in the circle, and use your Q W somewhere else. Then you just ult and she will have to run out of it.

VS

Anivia

Medium

Anivia is a harder matchup because you will have trouble killing her because of her passive and her damage is high aswell. Just farm untill lategame and try to roam other lanes to pick up some kills.

VS

Annie

Easy

Annie is an easy matchup, she won't be able to get close to you, just be aware of her 4.png+infernalguardian.png combo. Poke her down with your Q and just ult sometimes to force her to back.

VS

Azir

Hard

Azir is a hard matchup, his damage is to high and he outrange you easy, just try to push him under his turret and prevent him from farming. When he wants to engage on you with his soldiers use this as an advantage and E W him. He won't care alot about dodging skillshots if he's about to engage.
