Vel'Koz Counter tips

Laning Against

A lot of your early game damage comes from proccing your Passive. You can auto-attack an enemy to refresh the duration of the Passive stacks if you are waiting for one of your abilities to come off cooldown.

Vel’Koz easily pushes waves with his W. Try to get minions under your opponent’s turret and then harass them as they try to last hit. Be especially careful of potential enemy ganks if your wave is pushed as Vel’Koz has no mobility.

If you are trying to poke down your opponent in lane, you can reactivate your Q while it is midair to split it early. Use this to hit them if they try to side-step your ability or hide in the minion wave.

Strategy VS

When Vel’koz is without Flash or his

VelkozRR

, he is incredibly weak and will not be able to team fight effectively. Try to catch him out of position and look to fight when he doesn’t have his

VelkozRR

.

If Vel’koz is alive, do not try to take the Baron if he is nearby. Vel'koz's'

VelkozRR

will shred through your team's health bar if he knows where you are.

As Vel’koz’s’

VelkozRR

is a channel and has a large area of effect, do not look to fight inside the jungle as you’re giving him a great opportunity to get a good

VelkozRR

off. If possible, fight in areas that are quite open or cancel his

VelkozRR

as soon as it starts to reduce his damage output.

Power Spikes

Vel’koz’s first power spike is at level 3 as he can fully utilise his Passive. Do not let him activate his Passive by any means as it will deal a lot of damage.

At level 6, Vel’koz can burst down even the tankiest of champions. When he channels his

VelkozRR

, try to cancel it with crowd control.

When Vel’koz has Luden’s Echo, his damage output will be much higher. Try not to get caught out by his

VelkozQQ

when he has this item as it will chunk through your health bar,
