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

Play safe for the first few levels. You need time to come online and you shouldn’t be fighting unless you have a clear early advantage.

Once you have a few levels under your belt, you can start to play aggressive and look for aggressive plays. However, you will rely on your Support to do the heavy lifting early on.

After destroying the bottom lane tower, rotate to the mid lane and try to take that tower. This will open up the map and give your team a gold lead.

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 game0 - 15 min

Veigar is relatively weak during the early game, and he should be focusing on trying to Baleful StrikeQ and stack up his Passive when possible. His Event HorizonE will come in handy when trying to prevent all-ins.

Post-six, he will have access to all his basic abilities. This is huge for him as he can now CC enemies and then combo them with his Dark MatterW and Baleful StrikeQ when possible.

Level six is a significant power spike as it gives him access to his finishing ability. Now he will just have to focus on poking the enemy out in the lane before decimating them with his Ultimate Primordial BurstR.

Mid game15 - 25 min

His first ability will be maxed out at level nine. Now he can pretty much do a quarter of a squishy target's health bar with his Baleful StrikeQ.

At level 11, he will have two points in his Ultimate Primordial BurstR. This will amplify his damage massively, and Veigar will easily be able to one-shot squishy enemies and tanks alike.

Veigar will now have multiple stacks, which will grant him a lot of free ability power. This is horrible news for the enemy team as Veigar will soon be unstoppable.

Late game25+ min

He will have a lot of Passive stacks during this phase of the game. This scaling is infinite, which means that Veigar can pretty much one-shot full health squishy targets.

His Event HorizonE will be on a very short cooldown during this point in the game. He will be able to secure a lot of picks, especially around choke points.

Once his Ultimate Primordial BurstR gets maxed out, he will execute enemies with ease. Any enemy who gets hit by his Baleful StrikeQ will be within Ultimate Primordial BurstR kill range of Veigar.
