Guide is under construction
(Last update: 7.3.18)

127.jpg

I know it's always boring if there is a lot of text in a guide, but if you really want to learn a champ even if it's "just a tank" like Volibear you should read the guide a bit. You could find some little Tips and Tricks in every section of this guide. There are a lot of maybe unknown Tricks in the Tipps and Tricks section if you just to look something up or for the real gamplay of Volibear please go through the whole Guide.

And yes I know there are a lot of mistakes in the spelling and grammer.
Sorry for that but english isnt my first language and I will try to fix it from time to time..

(Is under construction (like the whole guide))

New Season is live:

With the new Season there will be a lot of updates,
cause of the runes and other changes

179.png

Well, 11.png in the jungle it's always a good idea.

Your 4.png is good for escapes (over walls) and for quick initiates against the enemy with your volibearq.png and then destroy them.

Some people use 6.png but in my opinion 4.png is better, because of the "Wow, why is he suddenly there" moment (lower reaction time for enemy)

New Runes Back to Top

506.png

Stable Tank

Aftershock.png?width=64 Aftershock: Good for ganks and teamfights as a meele tank and it scale with your max. life.

Demolish.png?width=64 Demolish: Important! After a succsessful gank you can push with a wave the tower. (Scale with max life)

Conditioning.png?width=64 Conditioning: In mid game more resistances. (Your need resistances and good vs AD & AP)

Overgrowth.png?width=64 Overgrowth: Farm more get more life. (New  calculated creep score in the jungle)

Triumph.png?width=64 Triumpf: After a succsessful gank you are not completely low hp and good in teamfights.

Legend%20Alacrity.png?width=64 Legend Alacrity: More attackspeed for your volibearw.png and for a better jungle clear (+dmg in teamfight).

179.png

Slowing Offtank

Glacial%20Augment.png?width=64 Glacial Augment: Most important rune in this build, very useful Passiv AND Aktiv funktion.

Magical%20Footwear.png?width=64Magical Footwear: Free boots after 10 min (or less) and bonus movement speed - perfect

Futures%20Market.png?width=64 Future's Market: If you need a bit more gold to buy a whole item or just a ward, it's comfortable.

Cosmic%20Insight.png?width=64 Cosmic Insight: Less CD for your spells -> more CC

Font%20of%20Life.png?width=64 Font of Life: You slow and CC the enemy a lot, and this will help your team.

Conditioning.png?width=64 Conditioning: More resists in mid game, (Armor and Magic Resist)

179.png

I'm testing some new rune combination (like more attackspeed (Press%20the%20Attack.png?width=32 - Press the attack)) whitch is a bit more "squishy", but the tank runes are solid for him. (Runes are changing pretty fast right now)

Skill Order (Start)



LVL 1: Skill your volibearw.png first then you are faster in the jungle.

LVL 2: Then skill volibeare.png as second one, to get less Dmg. from the mosters (they are feared).

LVL 3: Skill the volibearq.png to initiate (GANK) (more movemend speed and flip the enemy behind you).

179.png

Skill Order (General)


179.png

Skill Explanation




Q: volibearq.png


More Movementspeed
Flip Enemy behind you ( "Hard" CC ) (kind of knock up)
Auto Attack reset possible

Its your initiate Skill. You are faster and throw somebody (enemy) behind you.

Help a friend to escape, flip the enemy AWAY from him and not to his escape route.

Remember: LOL is theoreticly 2D (bird perspective) so you can flip/throw sombody, that is jumping  (Zac, Tristana, Jarvan and a lot of other champs (List in "Tipps and Tricks")).


179.png


W: volibearw.png


Possibale after 3rd Auto attack

Cooldown halfed (0.5) when used against neutral monsters & minions
Scale with bonus HP

Makes more Dmg. when target is low life (%)


LIFE = Damage


Use it before the enemy escapes or as a finishing skill

The skill has a higher range then Volis Auto attack

When you use your volibearw.png,Volibears bite animation goes sometimes theroreticly away from the enemy


179.png


E: volibeare.png


AoE
Slow + Knockback (CC )

Can fear Monsters, Minions and summoned Champion/Creatures
Less Dmg. from jungle

Knockback makes more dmg vs flying or dashing champinons

Use volibeare.png as a gap-closer, when you follow your enemy


179.png


R: volibearr.png


Stronger Auto Attacks
Chained Auto Attacks (till 8 enemys)


Your Auto Attacks makes huge Dmg. and has some kind of "range"
When you use volibearr.png Voli makes a lightning strike even without an Auto Attack


179.png


Passiv: volibearpassive.png

When you drop below 30% HP it triggers
Heals 30% of max Life over 6 sec

Always good in 1v1, enemys often underestimate this passiv and its CD (120s)
Just imagine you've got a Mundo ulti, when you need one (without movementspeed)

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Start
    Try to get
    else
    Use the Blue Jungel Item to slow the enemy, when you gank. And Life Jungel item to make dmg (cinder) and to be tanky.
    °° !!!! - !!!! Very Important !!!! - !!! °° Very good Initiate for meeles. High Movement Speed Ideal for Ganks (In my opinion the essential Item for Volibear Jungle)
    (Optinal) In my Guide its just optional. It is good (Movement/Health/Armor) but not the best item for initiates in teamfights (You cant really reach the one target in teamfight, that you really want)
    Swiftness = offensiv - Autoattacks ---- Mercury against Hard CC ---- Ninja Tabi against High AD Dmg (4-5 enemy Guys AD)
    To buy Hunters Potion is a good option in early game if you have about 250g and dont know what else to do with the money. (Do it First or second backcall, dont to it to late, otherwise its a waste of money (you will sell it anyway))
    Slowing Offtank Build Good with the Active of the item and you make more dmg vs monster and champions then usually. I will buid it often before Righteous Glory. (personal option)

Core Items

    Its one an important item because LIFE = DMG. and it also have a nice Passiv and also CD
    You need MR - Spirit Visage is a good item for Voli (High MR/ Health/ CD/Stronger Life REG.) (Has recieved a hard nerve in Patch 7.10 but is still the best alround option for Voli.)
    Good Armor Item espacially against Crit. (Health/Armor/Less Crit./Slow)
    Rewored, very useful now, gives Life and high armor, and good item passivs
    Your Team needs more Dmg ? AoE ? Hydra is Perfect ( Remember: Life=Dmg ) + AoE
    Good with high life. Endgame = Lanes Pushed (Tactic) Allraound ressistances (Armor/MR)
    Its in Mid-End game pretty good, if you start early teamfights (beause passiv). It is efficiant, but if its really a Late game item ? We will see . Its Cheap for the stats (Armor / MR)
    If you need a bit from everything (dmg and movementspeed in combat) normaly often in my Slowing Offtank item build, but theoretically always good, debending on the situation.
    Allround High Dmg - Low Ressistances Build (If there is another tank in team and your team needs a bit dmg.)
    Allround Normal Dmg- High Ressistances Build (YOU ARE THE TANK for everything)
    Slowing Offtank Build that makes unexpacted dmg.

Situational Items

    Need more Armor and want to help team? Frozen hearth will do it (Aura/ Atk Speed Slow/Armor/CD)
    Another good MR item
    Slow the enemy with auto attacks and be tanky
    Life and a bit Dmg. (Cheap/Dmg/Life)
    If you fight vs Dot (dmg over time) champs like Swain or Singed very usefull
    At the moment it's pretty new but theoretical it's a nice item vor Voli (stats + item passiv)
506.png
Well you see, there is a lot of variety in the itembuild and yes, I know it's much health and low resistances but in many cases it will work. Always try to get 3800.png. With the movement speed of 3800.png, you can do so much more then just take Dmg. (Catch the squishy Adc/Mid).

But remember: It depends on the enemy team and who is feeded. vs a feeded 19.png you and also your team has a hugh problem when you indirectly give him Life (Lifesteal), so use more resistances and less life.

And please dont build much armor against pure magic team (and the other way around), but thats the main aspect in such games like LOL.

And dont forget the activ functions of your items.

Pretty easy cause of his low CC and escapes and cause of your low CD on your CC Spells is his gangplankw.png not that stong vs voli.

VS

Gnar

Hard

Try to get close to him and just try to use everything fast against him. He is a bit stronger then other adc vs you because of his "tankyness" as an "adc".

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Its a fair Matchup, both meele fighters, but he can cage you with his ult. In a normal 1v1 you should be stronger.

VS

Jax

Hard

In early game you have an easy life, but if he goes a bit tanky, in mid game and specially in late game, you cant fight him in 1v1. While jaxcounterstrike.png you can't volibearq.png him and with his ult (jaxrelentlessassault.png) you can't kill him in normal fight.

VS

Jayce

Hard

He can keep you on distance and his jaycethunderingblow.png has a higher range then your volibearq.png(can't flip him) . You must make all in, in meele fight your stronger, otherwise he will kite you to death.

VS

Jhin

Easy

Shouldnt be a real problem, dont let him hit his W and his 4th shot makes hughe Dmg. (sometimes more then 30 % = volibearpassive.png useless) In the most other cases you can just destroy him.

Medium

Dont go in a TRAP jinxe.png. Really this is the only real escape for her (jinxw.pngslow not that strong)

VS

Kalista

Medium

VS

Karma

Medium

Her karmaspiritbind.pngis nasty, everything else is ok.

VS

Karthus

Medium

You only need to take care of his karthuswallofpain.png. He has no other escape, and in meele you make more Dmg.

VS

Kassadin

Medium

Try to gank before LvL. 6 (riftwalk.png) otherwise he will often escape with his ult. He is often pretty tanky and because of his slow forcepulse.png you cant really kill him (he will escape (forcepulse.png,riftwalk.png))

VS

Katarina

Medium

In teamfight you need to stop her ult (katarinar.png) with your volibearq.png. Hard to gank cause of her katarinaq.png,katarinaewrapper.png. Look where the dagger are.

VS

Kayle

Hard

Against a good Kayle its very hard. She will keep you on distance with her judicatorreckoning.png ,judicatorrighteousfury.png and  heals and runs away (judicatordivineblessing.png) When you go in meele fight she will ult judicatorintervention.png when she is low life. You will take huge Dmg.

VS

Kayn

Medium

Depending on the playstyle and itembuild of kayn vs squish hige dmg you can burst him dead, vs tanky form, its hard, you need thornmail or so (vs lifesteal)

VS

How to Jungle Back to Top

mapwegklein.jpg

(Only a temporarily Map for the guide)
Map comming soon
506.png


General things


It's always good to start on the botlane Buff, if your botlane helps you (which should be the case).
And always follow the skill order, so skill your volibearw.png first.
Normaly you gank at level 3 and try to avoid the triggering of Volibears passiv volibearpassive.png in the jungle it's not the worlds end if it triggers, but for ganks its more comfortable to keep it.
I'll do the the first Buffs smitless, in case of danger (invade/enemy jungler/hook) sure you can smite for safety.

Try to avoid the autoattacks from jungle monsters when you use volibeare.png directly before they hit you.

179.png

Starting Red:



1. Red Buff

When you start Red, then autoattack him and use always you volibearw.png when you can. (Normaly about 2 times)
I prefer to do the Red smitless, what shouldn't be a problem with help. You can use volibearw.png to lasthit the Red, then you are dealing more Dmg. then an autoattack.

After finishing the Red, skill your volibeare.png.



2. Wolves

Autoattack the big one and use your volibeare.png to fear all. when you can use volibearw.png , do it on the big one.
You can do one autoattack on the little wolves to let the Red Buff do its work over time.
Keep going this thill the end.
You should pull the wolves a bit to the top of their camp to keep the passiv of volibearw.png for the next step.
Use your2031.png to avoid the triggering of volibearpassive.png on the next step.


3. Blue Buff

When you take the direct way to the Blue you can keep the passiv of volibearw.png and attack the Blue faster. Use always your volibeare.png if you can (direct before the Blue attacks that would be great) and use your volibearw.png aswell.
After doing it the first time, the second time your mana allows you to do only the volibeare.png
When you can directly smite it, do it.
Use your2031.png to avoid the triggering of volibearpassive.png, so you can gank with your volibearpassive.png

After finishing the Blue, skill your volibearq.png.


4. Crap ?

The Crap should be directly in front of you (comes form mid to top), when you left the jungle (if you do it in normaly time). When you see, that you can't easy gank Top or Mid lane then do the crap. You will have more Health and vision for your laners.
The crap is easy to kill with your volibeare.png and autoattacks. Sure you can use your volibearw.png to kill it (or on the way to it. (More Dmg. when crap is low.))
Try to navigate the crap in the direction of your next gank.




179.png

Starting Blue:



1. Blue Buff

When you do the Blue, use your autoattacks and volibearw.png to damage and kill him.
Try to pull the blue a bit in direction  of the Gromp for the next step.
After finishing the Blue, skill your volibeare.png.


2. Gromp

Run directly to the Gromp and autoattack him (hopefully with your keeped volibearw.png passiv) and use volibeare.png
Use all skills when they are available and kill him.
You can use your2031.png to avoid the triggering of volibearpassive.png on the next step.


3. Wolves

You can do the wolves just with autoattack the big one and use your volibeare.png to fear all. when you can use volibearw.png  do it on the big one.
Keep going this till the end.
You can use your2031.png to avoid the triggering of volibearpassive.png on the next step.
After finishing them, skill your volibearq.png.


4. Red Buff

Do your Red wiht all your skills you've got. Try to flip him with your volibearq.png in the bush ( , or ward the bush.) (protection from invade enemy jungler). Just finish him off with autoattacks and your skills. And smite him to finish (or before the passiv volibearpassive.png triggers.)


5. Crap ?

When you left the jungle you could do the crap. but its (in my opinion) easier and more effectiv if it's directly in front of you when you left the jugnle (it's the case when you start at Red on botside).

When you see, that you can't easy gank Top or Mid lane then you could do the crap. You will have more Health and vision for your laners.
The crap is easy to kill with your volibeare.png and autoattacks. Sure you can use your volibearw.png to kill it (or on the way to it. (More Dmg. when crap low.))
Try to navigate the crap in the direction of your next gank.




179.png

After Ganking back in jungle


After doing 1 or 2 ganks (and doing maybe the crap between the ganks) you can go back to the jungle and do your farm. You can easily do the gromp, the golems or the wolves if they are respawned again.
I personal do the raptors only when I really need the money or I'm in the near of them and don't know what else to do (and Ive got enought life/mana). Even with your AoE fear from volibeare.png the little raptors do a lot of dmg. and you can't kill them easy (compared with other camps). If you've got 3751.pngits ok cause of the permanent AoE dmg.

179.png

Back ?


If you are low health/mana you could go back, but before you do it look on your gold.

If you jungle and ganked succsessfully have more then 1200g and can buy3751.png and 3672.png
About 900g = 3751.png
About 650g = 3706.png

Lower then 650g = Demending on enemy team and how you want to play
If you want to farm in the jungle then try to build 3706.png (or parts of it (1039.png))
If you want to gank more, you should buy 3672.pngand something small depending on your gold (2032.png/1039.png/1028.png)

Try to rush on 1401.png. With it your jungle faming will be a lot easier, then without it (passiv dmg).

How to Gank Back to Top

gankklein.jpg

Here you can see typical "gank-routes" (in yellow - (lines with dots = jump over wall with flower))

506.png

General things


You will normaly gank from the river or from the jungle. Later, in mid game after youve bought 3800.png you can do pretty usefull lane ganks aswell. Inform yourself about wards in the river/ river bush/ tri-bush or somwhere else. You can use the explosiv flowers to jump in the river bush and make a fast initiate. Even if its warded you can easy gank them, if the enemy pushs.


When you've reached level 3 you are ready to gank. Look who is your ally and specially who is your enemy.
It's likelier to make a succsessful gank on a 122.png, who has no real escape, then to gank a 7.png or a 238.png.
And look, if the lane is pushed, or gets pushed. If the lane gets pushed and the enemy is forwardmost (front) it's easier to follow and kill him, cause he has a longer way his tower and you've got more time to do dmg.
And communicate with your teammates, where and when you will gank, that they are prepared for your gank.

179.png

Gank as Volibear


Normaly you run with your volibearq.png to the enemy and make sure that you will flip him behind you (or hin the direction to your teammate, what is mostley behind you.). You can also 4.png direct to him, when you are sure, that you will flip him directly after your 4.png.


When you've already used 4.png, you can use your volibeare.png in the near of your enemy as a gap-closer, otherwise do it right after your flip.


If you've already have 3706.png you can use your slowing smite as a gap-colser aswell.
And when you've bought 3800.png, you can directly follow them (+volibearq.png) , flip and kill them.
(In my opinion one of the best meele gank item, because Voli hasnt the highest dem and the best gap-closer.)


After doing one of these possibilities you can use your ultimate ( volibearr.png) to do more dmg. (just an option.) and autoattack him. If your volibearq.png or volibeare.png is ready use it. (more CC). Use your volibearw.png when the enemy is low life.



Remember, try to let the laners do the kills, but if you're not sure that the laner really can do the last hit, do it yourself.

Better a kill on the jungler and an assist for the laner then nothing except wasted mana, time and spells.

How to Teamfight Back to Top

506.png
In teamfight there are some options that you can do, depending on the enemy team and who is feed.


Focus ?


I personal try to catch the main Dmg. dealer (DD) in the enemy team (often the adc (202.png,119.png)/midlaner ( 134.png, 91.png, 115.png)/ squishy dmg delaer toplaner (114.png, 157.png) or on the enemy jungler, when they deal a lot of Dmg, and are the most Problem in teamfights (107.png, 121.png))
This are just examples of Champions, but try to flip them into your enemy team that they kill them, or battle them yourself (like against the adc), but only if you really can fight them (vs 67.png it's so hard as a voli in 1v1)
Normaly your team should do the Dmg. and tell them your plan and who they should try to focus.

179.png

Engage (offensive)


To catch the squishy DD in the enemy team, you follow the tricks to gank. Mostly you use 3800.png and volibearq.png to run to the enemy and then 4.pngdirect in front of your target and flip him to your team. Then fight with your volibeare.png and volibearr.png and try to use your volibearw.png to lasthit your target or make high Dmg. on it against the most squishy targets your Combo with a few autoattacks and your hughe burst Dmg. as a tank (cause of your volibearw.png at the end) is enought to kill the squishy enemy, you are pretty strong vs Champs with low Max. HP.

But make sure your team will follow up and don't chase or go in to deep, casue you are much more faster with your 3800.png, volibearq.png,4.png combo then the rest of your team. When you do this, a lot of enemys will hurt and try to kill you and uses your spells / ults on you - and this is good. Sure you can try dodge if you can (will be hard cause you want to kill the squishy one ), but are then in the center of the enemys and makes with your volibeare.png andvolibearr.png AoE Dmg. to them (keep focusing on your target). Because of the fact that you are tanky (+your volibearpassive.png) you can often survive this and fight till death (if it's worth) of escape with your volibearq.png and look, who you can focus next, or where your help is needed. Then, or in your later chasses the passiv of 3083.png is very nice, cause if you dont get Dmg. (champs /minions/ monsters /tower) your healing ration is like a Mundo ult sadism.png (off the fight). But you need a few seconds till it will trigger.

179.png

Peel (defensive)


The second option is to peel/protect YOUR Dmg. dealer. This is very usefull, if he is feed and the enemy team keep focussing him hard. The guys that you should protect are often your ADC or Midlaner. (If they have range its easier to protect them/ keep the enemy away from them, while they are dealing Dmg.)
You have only pretty bad CC, but not a high CD on your spells  -  and you deal Dmg. aswell.
The protection is important vs assassins, something like that (107.png, 121.png, 131.png, 64.png ).

- Flip enemy over thin walls with Q volibearq.png

You can use your Q volibearq.png to flip enemys over small walls like the walls in the mid lane (bushes).

You need to stay close to the wall to flip them over and stay with the back to the wall.

Very useul for escapes or initiates/engage

179.png

- volibearw.png  + Enemy 4.png


If you use your W volibearw.png directly before the enemy uses 4.png and kill him with volibearw.png, the 4.png is gone. (Because of a "delay" of your volibearw.png.)

179.png

- volibeare.png Fear


With your E volibeare.png you can fear minions (to reduce dmg in a huge minion wave).
Additional to that you can also fear neutral monsters (not dragons or baron) (important in the jungle) and from champion sworn creatures. These creatures can be:

  • 1.png Annie - infernalguardian.png Tibbers
  • 60.png Elise - elisepassive.png Little Spiders
  • 74.png Heimderdinger - heimerdingerq.png Towers (not sure but I belive it was so (will corret it soon)) ?
  • 427.png Ivern - ivernr.png Daysie
  • 7.png LeBlanc - leblancr.png Clone You can be sure if it's a clone or not if you fear (clone) or slow (real leblanc) her.
  • 90.png Malzahar -  malzaharw.png Voidlings
  • 82.png Mordekaiser - mordekaiserchildrenofthegrave.png "Ghosts" You can fear his ghost when it is a champin but Im not sure if its a dragon.?
  • 35.png Shaco - hallucinatefull.png Clone You can be sure if it's a clone or not if you fear (clone) or slow (real shaco) him.
  • 83.png Yorik - yorickpassive.png Goul & yorickr.png Ult You will recive significantly less dmg from his in the fight.
  • 154.png Zac - zacpassive.png Passiv Parts Not sure if it is so, will detect it soon but I belive the sign is there. ?
  • 143.png Zyra - zyrapassive.png Evloved Flowers
  • 3513.png Sworn Herald - You can fear the Herald only if it is sworn by the enemy, and only if it isnt going to charge to a tower. As a neutral monster you can't fear it.

179.png

- volibeare.png Detact invisible enemys


You can alos detact invisible enemy champions and see where they are going because you dmg the champion
(volibeare.png= AoE dmg slow). These champions are:

Im not sure if your E volibeare.png only detact enemys that move or not (will test it but knockback mechanic is new)
179.png

- Knockback flying/dashing enemys with E volibeare.png

You can use your E volibeare.png to stop and knockback flying and dashing enemys. This makes Volibear much more special then everybody expacts.

The mechanic is pretty new, so I must test it a bit more, but it is extremly usefull to have a second "hard CC" spell.

179.png

- volibearr.png Range Kill


When you hit an enemy very low, but he will escape, remember that your ulti volibearr.png has a chain reaction. So if an enemy minion wave is incomming or an enemy champ is comming, try to hit him. That's the last option you have to kill the enemy and it's often a try worth. (But you need to know, thats just the magic Dmg from your ult will hit him, not the Dmg from the Auto attack)

Notes Back to Top

506.png
This is my personal option and sure there are also other good guides.

And yes, a lot of people say its a braindead Champ and so but its the brainded Champ that I and maybe YOU like to play.



I try to keep this Guide updated.

Sorry for mistakes in the text and my bad english but I hope you can understand everything what I mean.

Please leave a note when you've got questions or just want to discuss something. ;)


And yes I hope you like to play him.
