Summoner Spells Back to Top

Viktor relies on 3 factors, the first of all if he is against some burster mage or burster fighter like: 7.png or 238.png  you should Definitely pick 4.png3.png because chances are that they are going to some times towerdive you or go all in in a 1v1 out of nowhere, it is a good pick if also you're facing someone with a lot of poke ex:61.png or 115.png.


The second factor relies if you are facing a really squishy champion like: 85.png or 136.png pick 4.png14.png because of the simple fact that when viktor uses Thunderlord's Decree they sometimes leave with 100hp or less but they stay alive, with ignite its sometimes better to secure more early kills but on late game he does not need it because of the insane damage output this champion has.


The final and third factor depends on the player playstile, example: if you are more of a lonely wolf and just stick to mid the whole game then definitvely pick 4.png21.png and especially if you are against a long range burst champ like: 99.png or 30.png (specially against a karthus to counter his ultimate fallenone.png).

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Now Viktor starts to be explained here:

>Savagery helps farming better while using basic attacks because farming with spells waste a lot of mana in early unless you use Q only.

>Merciless mastery allows him to deal more damage even before Thunderlord's Decree is applied if the target is less than 40% health.

>Secret stash makes him stronger on early thanks to the buff that it gives to potions.

>Dangerous Game actually can save you if you had an ignite and killed an enemy or in some teamfights.

>Precision allows him to avoid more Magic Ressist therefore doing more damage.

>Thunderlord's Decree is my favorite mastery with viktor because if the target is squishy enough like:17.png or 76.png a simple viktordeathray.png and viktorpowertransfer.png combo will kill them.

>Sorcery gives him more damage.

>Expose Weakness works really good on teamfights specially if you use your viktorgravitonfield.png well and hit everyone with your ultimateviktorchaosstorm.png and viktordeathray.png because of the advantages you team has, it works pretty good if your adc is fed and has a lot of crit damage like :119.png.


>Natural Talent gives him more damage and it is more preferable than Vamprisim because viktor is not a spell vamp champion.

>Bounty hunter allows him to DELETE any champion if you're fed by his unique passive that has no stack limit.

The only thing you must know is that every viktor player varies in starting with viktorpowertransfer.png or viktordeathray.png, for example I usually prefer viktorpowertransfer.png because i farm better and because i play defensively normally. Although some players prefer viktordeathray.png by their ofensive play style.

>His main source of damage is the viktordeathray.png so you want to rush it up first and then you level your viktorpowertransfer.png.

>his viktorpowertransfer.png works pretty good with3100.png:  because of the passive( :UNIQUE – spellblade: After using an ability, your next basic attack (on hit) deals 75% base attack damage and 50% ability power as bonus magic damage. (1.5 second cooldown) )and his viktorpowertransfer.png Active(ACTIVE: Viktor shields himself for 8% of his maximum mana (+ 15% AP) for 2.5 seconds, deals magic damage to the target enemy, and modifies his next basic attack within 3.5 seconds to deal magic damage.)

> His viktorgravitonfield.png work really good on teamfights because it stuns the enemy for 1.5 seconds and if you upgrade your viktorpassive.png to the max it attracts them to the center.

>Viktor's Ultimateviktorchaosstorm.png does an insane burst damage and a good follow up of per second damage and it does a great sinergy with his viktorgravitonfield.png.

here is a short description of his kit:

viktorpowertransfer.png(Q)

ACTIVE: Viktor shields himself for 8% of his maximum mana (+ 15% AP) for 2.5 seconds, deals magic damage to the target enemy, and modifies his next basic attack within 3.5 seconds to deal magic damage.
with augment--turbocharge: Viktor instantly gains 30% bonus movement speed for 2.5 seconds after using Siphon Power.


viktorgravitonfield.png(W)

ACTIVE: Viktor deploys a gravitational imprisonment device at the target location which arms after a brief delay. For 4 seconds, the trap slows all enemies that pass through its field, persisting for 0.25 seconds after leaving.
Whilst under the trap's effects, enemies generate a stack every 0.5 seconds. At 3 stacks, enemies are knocked out and stunned for 1.5 seconds.


viktordeathray.png (E)

ACTIVE: Viktor uses his synthetic arm to fire an energy beam down the target path, dealing magic damage to every enemy it hits. The arm can fire in any direction from any point within range, and does not interrupt Viktor's previous orders.
with Augment Aftershock: An explosion follows Death Ray'swake after 1 second, dealing additional magic damage.


viktorchaosstorm.png(R)

FIRST CAST: Viktor conjures an arcane singularity at the target location, dealing magic damage to every enemy it hits and interruptin enemies abilities. The singularity remains active for 6.5 seconds afterwards, dealing magic damage to all nearby enemies every 2 seconds.
 SECOND CAST: Viktor directs the singularity to the target location. Once the singularity damages an enemy champion, it automatically follows them until the target dies or escapes it. The singularity moves faster depending on its proximity to Viktor, but always moves at maximum speed when moving towards him.
when you upgrade his passive to the masan extra agument is granted on the ultimate:
 Augment- Velocity: Chaos Storm moves 20% faster.


viktorpassive.png(Passive)

Viktor starts each game with an exclusive Prototype Hex Core, which permanently occupies one of his item slots. For a thousand gold  Viktor can upgrade his Hex Core to increase its bonuses and grant him one Evolution point, which he can use to augment one of his basic abilities. Once he augments all of his basic abilities, Viktor automatically augments his ultimate ability,  viktorchaosstorm.png chaos storm.


3200.pngPrototype Hex Core: Grants 1 - 18 (based on level) AP and 10 - 180 (based on level) mana.
3196.pngThe Hex Core MK-1: Grants 3 - 54 (based on level) AP15 - 270 (based on level) manaand 1 Evolution Point.
3197.pngThe Hex Core MK-2 : Grants 6 - 108 (based on level) AP20 - 360 (based on level) manaand 1 Evolution Point.

3198.pngPerfect Hex Core: Grants 10 - 180 (based on level) AP25 - 450 (based on level) mana and 1 Evolution Point.


>Now you first want to upgrade viktordeathray.png first with The Hex Core mk-1 item.png because you can farm better and exploit Thunderlord's faster apart from making more damage out of your combo.

>With  The Hex Core mk-2 item.png you will upgrade viktorgravitonfield.png if you want to have a better teamfight, because appart from the stun it gives, it attracts enemies to the center. Or upgrade viktorpowertransfer.png  if you want to have more mobility (recommended).

>With Perfect Hex Core item.png upgrade the last ability that you have remaining and you will have all your passive complete.


Combos:

>Now the most offensive combo for Viktor is to start with viktordeathray.png then viktorpowertransfer.png and between those 2 spells use your viktorgravitonfield.png to stun your target or multiples enemies then your viktorchaosstorm.png comes in.

>You can poke around a while with viktorpowertransfer.png without triggering Thunderlord and when they have like 40%hp or 50%hp use the offensive combo to finish her off and this time with Thunderlord.

>A kind of "defensive" combo for this guy is to poke from far with viktordeathray.png and if they get too close use viktorchaosstorm.png then viktorpowertransfer.png .

>if someone is chasing you use your viktorgravitonfield.png to stun them and gain advantage, the same applies if you are chasing someone.

>if you are against some champions that have channeling ultimates like 90.png or 161.png use your ultimate viktorchaosstorm.png as it has a silence of 0.5 seconds that cancel their ultimate.


>the default combo is viktordeathray.png--viktorgravitonfield.png--viktorpowertransfer.png and finallyviktorchaosstorm.png.

VS

Ahri

Medium

just take care of her ahritumble.png wich can be countered with viktorgravitonfield.png and always place behind minions so her ahriseduce.png wont hit you and avoid ahriorbofdeception.png as the second hit applies true damage.

VS

Akali

Easy

Easily countered by range and viktordeathray.png, her  akalismokebomb.png can be countered with viktorgravitonfield.png, though be careful of her dashes as she can get really close to you.

VS

Anivia

Medium

always take care of her crystallize.png and flashfrost.png because a good glacialstorm.png with one of those 2 can delete you with thunderlord,  try to ask your jungler for blue or early ganks fast.

VS

Annie

Medium

So 1.png is a little stressing to play against because she builds 3027.png and its harder to burst her out in early game, always take care of her stun and infernalguardian.png combo so keep your distance when she has the passive active.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Easy

if you are good avoidingaurelionsolQ.png just play and poke withviktordeathray.png very consistently so he leaves lane or you have the chance to go on offensive combo.

VS

Azir

Hard

Azir is a real pain in the ass against this guy because of the damage input a soldier can make with thunderlord in a matter of seconds, always look at which times he used his azirQ.png so you can know when to attack.


NEVER try to kill him under tower because of his azirW.pngazirE.pngazirQ.png4.pngazirR.png combo that can make the tower target you and burst you out.

be aware of his soldiers and when they disappear.

VS

Brand

Hard

beware of brandfissure.png range and the passive because it implodes an insane amount of damage in seconds.


do not let him brandblaze.png with the passive as it will stun you.

if he brandwildfire.png stay away from minions, mosnters and teammates as it will bounce back.

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

watch out for her cassiopeianoxiousblast.png as she can spam it like 30.png  laywaste.pngbut with less coldown.


just play defensively and farm until you have lich bane and the first upgrade of 3198.png, then you can go offensive, if she has her cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png try to be facing back if you know the player is going to use it to avoid the stun.

VS

Diana

Hard

Watch out for her dianaR.png as the proximity becomes less, the more damage input and risk is for you.


try to avoid dianaQ.png and just poke with viktordeathray.png, if by any means she towerdives you make sure you use viktorchaosstorm.png timed well to stop her abilites 

VS

Ekko

Easy

just keep out of ekkoW.png stun range and look for ekkoR.png shadow, try to avoidekkoQ.png and poke with viktorpowertransfer.png active.


if you are going to burst im or you are chasing him use your viktorchaosstorm.png when you think he is going to use ekkoR.png or ekkoE.png to escape.

VS

Fizz

Hard

dont waste spells if he uses fizzjump.png as it will be pointless, if you havefizzmarinerdoom.png flash instantly out of his range unless you are really up above him, watch out for fizzpiercingstrike.png as he can be really close in a matter of seconds.


poke with viktordeathray.png carefully and try to viktorgravitonfield.png your minons with a little hp to stop him from farming.

VS

Gragas

Easy

use your viktorgravitonfield.png to stop his farm and freeze lanes sometimes.


poke with a basic attack, followed up by viktorpowertransfer.pngand his active then viktordeathray.png, if he stays with 40%hp go viktorchaosstorm.png.

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

use viktordeathray.png or  viktorpowertransfer.png to kill h28gevolutionturret.png and be careful as his ch1concussiongrenade.png will stun you.


watch out for his upgrade!!!.pngas he can power up his abilities, and position behind minions to stop hextechmicrorockets.png.

VS

Karthus

Easy

watch out for his laywaste.png, if you see him using fallenone.png outside his passive use  viktorchaosstorm.png on him  inmmediatly as this will cancel it.


be careful of his wallofpain.png as it slows 40-80% and viktor has no mobility

VS

Kassadin

Medium

his nulllance.png has a silence, watch out for that when making combos.


if he uses  riftwalk.png to get close to you use viktorgravitonfield.png inmmediatly.

VS

Katarina

Easy

if she uses deathlotus.png make sure to ult viktorchaosstorm.png to cancel it and then viktorgravitonfield.png-viktordeathray.png-viktorpowertransfer.png to kill her.

farm passively at early levels and at lvl 6 go offensive.

VS

Kayle

Hard

if she uses kayleR.png just run until it finishes and use viktordeathray.png-viktorpowertransfer.png-viktorgravitonfield.png-viktorchaosstorm.png.


stay away from her kayleE.pngrange as it can drain a lot of hp and deny farm.

VS

Kennen

Easy

watch out for his passive and avoid at all costs his kennenshurikenhurlmissile1.png as it deals considerable damage.


VS

LeBlanc

Medium

if she uses leblancslide.png to farm, try to use that cooldown time to poke and make sure her leblancmimic.png is on cooldown if you are going to 1v1.
