Veigar Strengths & Weaknesses
Strengths

Infinite scaling on his Passive makes him a late-game monster. He can quite easily start one-shotting people once he manages to get his first item.

Extremely powerful when fighting in closed spaces as he can easily land his Baleful StrikeQ and Dark MatterW on multiple targets while crowd controlling them with his Event HorizonE.

Very high gank set-up potential with his Event HorizonE. This can allow him to call his Jungler to gank his lane and help him get an early lead, which will be quite devastating for the enemy team.

Weaknesses

Very immobile and is extremely vulnerable to crowd control. He has a weak early game as well, so he can easily be abused and killed with a few ganks.

His Event HorizonE is on a really long cooldown, and it is his only form of self-peel. Once it is down, he can be easily all-in’d and killed with crowd control.

He will take a lot of time to come online if he happens to get killed a few times during the early game. He isn’t going to be very effective if the game goes on for too long so try to shut him down early and end the game quickly.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Veigar is Weak

Focus on farming and getting as much gold and XP as possible. You need time and gold before you’re able to come online and deal damage.

Your champion is incredibly weak in the early game. Focus on farming and avoid fighting with the enemy until you’ve got an item behind you.

After your bot lane has moved to the mid lane, rotate to the bot side of the map or somewhere else on the map so you can continue to farm and gain XP. Do not fight anyone unless you have an advantage over them. Continue to get XP and gold.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Veigar is Average

At this stage of the game, you want to put yourself in a side lane and focus on getting stacks so you have a stronger late game.

In the later parts of the mid-game and when the enemy starts to group, make sure you follow suit and start to group with your team.

Look for picks with your Event HorizonE. If you can catch someone out during the mid game with it, your team should be able to kill them pretty quickly. Once you’ve killed someone, make the call for Drake or Baron.

Late game
25+ min
Veigar is Strong

Stick with your team in the late game. Do not split up or walk away from them otherwise the enemy may try to pick you off or initiate a 4v5 fight when you’re away from your team.

Look for a pick with your Event HorizonE to gain the numbers advantage. Then use your Ultimate Primordial BurstR to take them down quickly before looking to siege or take a nearby objective.

At this stage of the game, you should have tons of stacks and be really strong. If you’re ahead, use your Ultimate Primordial BurstR to stat check the squishiest enemy champion to take them out of the fight.

Power Spikes
Early game

Veigar will get a medium power spike once he gets his Event HorizonE. This allows him to set up a combo on the enemy with his Dark MatterW and Baleful StrikeQ.

A significant power spike for Veigar is when he gets his Ultimate Primordial BurstR. It allows him to completely one-shot enemies with one or two rotations of his abilities.

Veigar is heavily dependent on his Passive stacks to become a powerful champion in the game. He should use his Baleful StrikeQ as much as he can to stack up his Passive.

Mid game

Once Veigar gets his first item, he should be able to deal a lot of burst damage in a short time. This will make him uber-powerful.

As Veigar is immobile, he should get a Zhonya's Hourglass to preserve his power during the game.

Fighting in closed spaces like the jungle pathways and the neutral objective pits should help him immensely. He should be able to deal a lot of damage and get multiple kills quickly.

Late game

At this point, Veigar should be able to one-shot any squishy target he manages to CC with his Event HorizonE.

Grouped fights are his bread and butter. He will trap multiple players in his Event HorizonE and chunk them hard with his Dark MatterW and Baleful StrikeQ.

Once he gets all his items, it doesn't matter if he can Event HorizonE a squishy target. If he can hit them once with his Baleful StrikeQ, his Ultimate Primordial BurstR should finish the job.
