[center][highlight]Welcome![/highlight][/center] Me = Tinyrampage! This is me giving you all the tips and tricks i use to play Viktor to his full potential. I was challenged when several people told me that Viktor cant stand up to most APs. That's a filthy lie and here's where i prove it. Lets start with Viktor's pros/cons... [highlight]Pros:[/highlight] [.]Powerful harass ALL game [.]Capable of stopping threatening ults (ex. [imgsmall=champ/nunu.png], [imgsmall=champ/katarina.png]) [.]No noticeable mana issues [.]Great AoE dmg [.]Damage stays high even if doing poorly [highlight]Cons:[/highlight] [.]Very much dependent on landing skillshots [.]Easily targeted (like most aps) [.]Must play passive and rely on [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] for many early game matchups [.]Not easy to farm with until [highlight][Augment: Death][/highlight] [highlight][center]WHY VIKTOR?[/center][/highlight] [center]This underated champ needs more people to play him correctly to show his true potential. He has a little bit of everything, CC, Ult stopping silence, powerful aoe damage and single target nuke. He may not have the highest burst, he may not have the best CC, he may not be the tankiest. But by the end of this guide you'll figure out why hes my prefered mid and how i make him look OP in any game.[/center] [center]Let's get started then?[/center]

2/12/2012 8:30 PM EST: Did spell checks and added the chapters i missed due to publishing to early while i was tired xD 2/17/2012 12:37 AM EST: Various changes including: [.] Starting item build and explanation [.] Added Viktor and Ziggs to the 1v1 matchups [.] More spell checks [.] Added bits of more detail to item builds section, mainly the Augments. 3/1/2012 3:01 PM EST: More Additions: [.] Added Nidalee, Mordekasier and more details to some 1v1s (namely Morgana and Oriana) [.] More explanation on the (First back) item choices in Item Builds [.] Answers to some rune questions in the Runes Chapter. 3/5/2012 2:26 PM EST: Added Video to the Early Game chapter. 3/9/2012 12:27 PM EST: Added Fizz to 1v1 matchups 3/16/2012 8:25 PM EST: Did some touching up in the 1v1 matchups and added ability information boxes to all champions within that chapter. 3/19/2012 10:44 PM EST: Updated Skills chapter to show changes in the upcoming Lulu patch.

Lets look at runes [imgext=] I'd like to point out the simple fact that is, if viktor gets off to a good start early, he dominates mid/late game. Running with straight ap quints and glyphs help maximize your harass between 1-6 where its most important you perform good. Throw mana regen in for good measure so you're not forced to start with [imgsmall=items/sapphire-crystal.png]. And lastly the magic pen for obvious reasons, you're a mid after all :P [highlight]Why not AP per lvl or MP5 per lvl?[/highlight] As stated above, Viktor's late game is dependent on his early game performance. An extra 10-15 damage early game will help you more than an extra 30-40 late game [highlight]Where are the defensive runes?[/highlight] You either sacrifice 10 ap, or your mana regen. In the end it doesn't turn out to enough damage reduction to matter. You play passive from start, your damage taken should already be minimal.

[title][img=skills/viktor/p.png] Passive: Evolving Technology[/title] [number]Viktor starts with a Hex Core that provides him with stats and can be upgraded in the store to augment one of his abilities. The Hex Core can only be upgraded once, and cannot be sold back to the store.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Build into Augment death... mini ignite is fun. Too bad it takes up inventory space :( [title][img=skills/viktor/q.png] Q: Power Transfer[/title] [number]Viktor blasts an enemy unit dealing magic damage, returning a portion of the damage dealt as a shield.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Short cd, highest early game damage spell you possess. This skill i find i only max if I'm capable of spamming (see 1v1 matchups). Often times viktor will loses trades EVEN with the recent buff to the shields return speed. I only start really using this skill if somethings in my face already or if I've tanked them low with lasers. [highlight]Tip:[/highlight] If trading with something like [imgsmall=champ/annie.png] fireball or [imgsmall=champ/kassadin.png] Q, fire your Q and run away from them, generally this will assure your shield reaches you before their harass hits you. [title][img=skills/viktor/w.png] W: Gravity Field[/title] [number]Viktor conjures a heavy gravitational field that slows any target in its radius. If enemies stay too long within the radius of the device, they get stunned.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Contrary to popular belief, very powerful. Flash W combo can help setup ganks. You can use it to block off an entrance and pretend you're a birdy [imgsmall=champ/anivia.png]. Or set it up on yourself or friends to protect them if they get focused often. Its small range does put you at risk, however if you land it in a perfect spot its worth the chance. [highlight]Note:[/highlight]The stun doesn't proc on [imgsmall=champ/masteryi.png] if he has ulti up... or anyone who can avoid the slow stacks from reaching 3 stacks to trigger the stun :( [title][img=skills/viktor/e.png] E: Death Ray[/title] [number]Viktor uses his robotic arm to fire a chaos beam that cuts across the field in a lane, dealing damage to any opponents struck in its path.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] THIS... this...This is the knife that spreads the butter on my bread. Now, you're sitting back trying to figure out why i want you to max this first... "it has lower base damage, more mana cost, longer cd". All true, but lets face it. Viktor before being fed cannot often trade with people like [imgsmall=champ/kassadin.png] or [imgsmall=champ/leblanc.png]...[imgsmall=champ/fiddlesticks.png] the list goes on. Lasers give you range, the ability to widdle away at them til your ready to land the kill with jungle help or not. [highlight]Tip:[/highlight]It gives vision wherever the beam travels... who needs wards xD (cough) [title][img=skills/viktor/r.png] R: Chaos Storm[/title] [number]Viktor conjures a singularity on the field which deals magic damage and briefly silences enemies. The singularity then does magic damage to all nearby enemies every second. Viktor can redirect the singularity.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Drop w, wait for stun... KABOOOM! Everything melts. Redirect the ult by hitting the ability again to lock it on to the person you hate most, it'll move to your cursor when you reactivate the ult. You can use this ability a handful of ways, whether to stop that pesky [imgsmall=champ/nunu.png] ult with its quarter second silence or just nuking a clump of baddies. [highlight]Note:[/highlight]Speed it up wisely, the closer the ult is to you, the faster IT moves... Don't go diving to far just so it can chase something and you drop to a tower... [highlight][center]EDIT[/center][/highlight] [center]As of the Lulu patch, Viktor's [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] AND [imgsmall=skills/viktor/r.png] remain active on the field after being placed for their remaining duration. [imgsmall=skills/viktor/r.png] can't be controlled while your dead though.[/center]

As stated at the top of the guide, i want you maxing out lasers. However, due to its lower base damage and the possibility of you getting the chance of spamming [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] on an easy target early, you still start with [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png]. Once you figure out what your fighting mid, you then decide what you're going to max. (again, see champion matchups for suggested starting skills/point up priorty) If you get something like [imgsmall=champ/annie.png] , Grab your [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png], then [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] and point up Q until you hit level 5. By that point you're close to being required to camp far back and laser her. (spare point for [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] if your jungle thinks he can magically gank for you early) This chapter is short and sweet because no matter who you play against mid, you always want [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] MAXED by the time you own the [highlight]Augment Death[/highlight].. Laser damage starts exceeding [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] as you gain more AP and especially when you get that smexy dot. As expected, point up [imgsmall=skills/viktor/r.png] as its available and save maxing [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] for last. [highlight][center]Simply put, for MOST cases you want[/center][/highlight] [center][img=skills/viktor/r.png]>[img=skills/viktor/e.png]>[img=skills/viktor/q.png]>[img=skills/viktor/w.png][/center] [highlight][center]As your point up priority[/center][/highlight]

[center]A short early game video made by me vs a Morgana mid[/center] [center][youtube][/youtube][/center] This is where you decide whether you're gonna dominate them, or just be a not so amazing ap. Personal experience has taught me that Viktor can kill ALMOST any ap at mid 1v1.. Its all about dem lasers man... Landing them is crucial to keeping them low while they cant reach you. Be careful how you aim your laser as you don't wanna push them til you have at least 1-2 kills stacked up. Be creative with ways to land lasers causing minimal minion damage. If you find yourself having issues landing lasers, you're gonna need jungle help. One thing you must NEVER forget, with the capability of shooting lasers on the run, you can widdle people while u run for your life/chase people down. Another thing you shouldn't forget, if you're doing well with kills by the time your lvl 6-8 you can start being VERY aggresive. You can find times the mid you've killed 2 times already can be dropped right on their turret, and you still have enough health to take the incoming jungler with your kiteability using [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] (whether you escape or kill it) [highlight]Getting pushed?[/highlight] abuse it and [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] [highlight]Keep pushing to far?[/highlight] Your ganks are strong once you have [imgsmall=skills/viktor/r.png], go assist a jungle/lane by dropping a [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] and tunneling some lasers in another lane. Figure out early if you should push. If your vs something you cant 1v1 without help (ex: [imgsmall=champ/leblanc.png]) don't be afraid to push with lasers and move down bottom or top if they're gankable. Keep your minion farm as high as possible against whatever champ you have to deal with, even if you're forced to use lasers to collect last hits, do it. Keeping a high income is what keeps Viktor ahead of the game. Fighting a champion you're familiar with can help you immensely, lets take [imgsmall=champ/veigar.png] for example. You know that he's going to try to farm his AP up with his Q. This leaves him very exposed at lvl 1. If the enemy team doesn't have a lvl 2 ganking jungle (ex:[imgsmall=champ/shaco.png]) Feel free to go charge into veigar and tunnel some of your [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] into him. You know he'll have to waste Q to counter harass, Or you can wait til he uses it and then move into harass to minimize damage you take. EVEN THOUGH A FEW DEATHS DOESN'T TOTALLY STOP VIKTOR'S POWER YOU HAVE TO AVOID AS MANY AS POSSIBLE! This means don't dive for a kill if it costs you your life and feeding your opposing ap. Staying neutral in player kills vs the other ap means you will win. Let them kill you to much early and its gameover even with the fact that you aren't totally useless at that point. [highlight]TL;DR[/highlight] [.]Play passive and [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] til you have help/can solo opponent from that point [.]Don't push without intentions of ganking other lanes or getting towers [.]Keep high income and keep your opposing AP's income low [.]DON'T GET COCKY KID YOU'RE STILL SQUISHY

You're either fed, playing assist viktor, or struggling horribly due to incompetence. Considering the amount of damage you can tunnel WITHOUT a large income and utility you have, its okay to share the love with your team. (unless you have [imgsmall=items/mejais-soulstealer.png] then steal everything xD) At this point, (15-25 min mark) you wanna start being more scouty with lasers. Don't be afraid to blow a little mana to get in a bush (lol). Your team will thank you later. If you're not crazy fed at this point chances are you're in that awkward state where you barely miss kills, or you're getting farmed because you're being focused/retarded. Sooo lets explain a lil strategy.. [highlight] IF YOU'RE FED![/highlight] You'll wanna make sure you're protecting your mejai stacks (assuming you bought it) and staying behind the pack, the only time you should be in front is if you've already got [imgsmall=items/zhonyas-hourglass.png]. Target carries like [imgsmall=champ/missfortune.png] and aps like [imgsmall=champ/karthus.png], while attempting to inflict maximum collateral damage with [imgsmall=skills/viktor/r.png] and [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png]. Basically if you avoid more than 4 deaths you wont be losing the game any time soon. [highlight] IF YOU'RE RETARDED![/highlight] Choose your path, Bait, or !@#$%. You gotta mount a comeback, if your record it looking something like 2/6/1 at 20 mins you're in trouble. Your item build doesn't change and your playstyle doesn't change much either, you just need to play even more passive and be more utility with your [imgsmall=skills/viktor/r.png]/[imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png]. Use [imgsmall=skills/viktor/r.png]s for silence more than dmg and [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] to save someone who's less retarded than you.. Have no fear you're not doomed to a life of dying and playing support. Simply by picking up assists you can get right back to competing with the ap you fed earlier.

Don't drag games out to long, your advantage runs thin as people approach full builds. You'd best have your full build done way before they see 5 of their own build. Avoid [imgsmall=champ/veigar.png] at this point entirely and have fun dropping something with a random ult and lasers that chunk carrys and your opposing ap. DON'T FORGET TO SCOUT WITH [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png]!!

Just gonna shed some light on my item choices. First I'm going to explain each Augment and why i make the choice of red (death) [center][highlight][imgext=][/highlight][/center] +200 mana +10% CD reduction +5 MP5 Passive: Increases cast range on [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] by 30% Explanation: CDR is about the only nice thing about this augment, which your getting from DFG[imgsmall=items/deathfire-grasp.png]. The Increased range on [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] isn't awful but chances are if your far enough away that you NEED this, you're not participating in teamfights ANYWAYS. [center][highlight][imgext=][/highlight][/center] +220 health +6 HP5 Passive: your [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] grants 30% increased movement speed for 3 seconds. Explanation: Unless you plan on being a tank this is useless based on stats. You'd think the movement speed is nice because viktor can feel awfully slow at times. But lets be realistic here, you have to STOP to cast that. You can easily be slowed before you manage to speed away or to something. [center][highlight][imgext=][/highlight][/center] +45 AP Passive: [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] applies a Damage over time equal to 30% of the damage dealt with said laser. Explanation: +45 AP, 30% more damage on lasers. Not only does the passive outweigh any other augment's. You get more AP for burst. Might as well use that lost spot for more burst since this is after all a bursty guide ;P --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [center][highlight]Starting Items[/highlight][/center] [center][img=items/dorans-ring.png] vs [img=items/boots-of-speed.png] [img=items/health-potion3.png][/center] It won't take you long to find out what matchups you'll need more defense as opposed to offense. Whether you're just learning to play or just flat out know you'll be out harassed you'll want the [imgsmall=items/boots-of-speed.png][imgsmall=items/health-potion3.png] This gives you breathing room to dodge skillshots and tank some with your drinks. The [imgsmall=items/dorans-ring.png] allows you the freedom to nearly spam harassment (a good 15 or so lasers if used on CD). The extra health is okay and this will bring you to about 50 ap at start (roughly 100 dmg on rank 1 [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png]). Stuff like [imgsmall=champ/kassadin.png][imgsmall=champ/brand.png][imgsmall=champ/gragas.png] you'll want boots almost no matter what. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [center][highlight]The First Back.[/highlight][/center] [center][img=items/sapphire-crystal.png]/[img=items/boots-of-speed.png]/[img=items/dorans-ring.png][/center] You've already figured out if you're either having survival issues, or mana issues (or none). [highlight]Harassing giving your mana a hard time?[/highlight] [img=items/sapphire-crystal.png] [highlight]Skillshots bring you down?[/highlight] [img=items/boots-of-speed.png] [highlight]I NEED ALL OF THE POWER![/highlight] [img=items/dorans-ring.png] (note this puts your build behind, you should probably only buy this if you're able to afford this AND [imgsmall=items/boots-of-speed.png]/[imgsmall=items/sapphire-crystal.png]) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [center][highlight]You Might Replace These[/highlight][/center] [center][img=items/rod-of-ages.png][/center] The "No real mana issues" thing is because of this item mainly, although it doesn't need to be rushed, in fact if you have [imgsmall=items/catalyst-the-protector.png] already its better to rush your [imgsmall=items/deathfire-grasp.png]. The extra tankiness doesn't hurt either for mid/late game. However the tankiness isn't enough if something else on their team is fed and targets you (ex: [imgsmall=champ/tryndamere.png]) so this is something you want to get rid of later for something more tanky (ex: [imgsmall=items/abyssal-scepter.png]) or not build at all. Also late to mid game if you have blue buff, or not over use mana to kill creeps, you wont run out of mana in a team fight without this. [center][img=items/mejais-soulstealer.png][/center] Right away you can decide whether you want this or not, if you have 2 kills before your level 7 just rush this right out. It'll help counter any enemy lanes that might be kicking your teams ass. Don't build it or be prepared to sell it if things go south or you turn into assist viktor xD --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [center][highlight]The MR Build[/highlight][/center] [center][img=items/abyssal-scepter.png] + [img=items/lich-bane.png][/center] Chances are if their ap is so harsh that you need BOTH of these, you wont need [imgsmall=items/mejais-soulstealer.png] or [imgsmall=items/rod-of-ages.png] .. Just make sure you build [imgsmall=items/lich-bane.png] LAST and have it replace your rod. The MR build will look like: [center][img=items/lich-bane.png][img=items/sorcerers-shoes.png][img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png][img=items/abyssal-scepter.png][img=items/zhonyas-hourglass.png][/center] (dont build in that order) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [center][highlight]THE AD HURTS[/highlight][/center] [center][img=items/thornmail.png][/center] If [imgsmall=champ/tristana.png][imgsmall=champ/tryndamere.png][imgsmall=champ/sivir.png][imgsmall=champ/masteryi.png][imgsmall=champ/graves.png].. etc are fed throw [imgsmall=items/thornmail.png] in over [imgsmall=items/mejais-soulstealer.png] or [imgsmall=items/rod-of-ages.png] if you feel you can upkeep your mana. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [center][highlight]THEY HATE ME[/highlight][/center] [center][img=items/void-staff.png][/center] If you see them stack the MR grab it and sell [imgsmall=items/rod-of-ages.png] or [imgsmall=items/mejais-soulstealer.png]

I'm gonna list below champions you'll commonly fight as a solo lane along with a basic explanation on how to handle them early game. [imgsmall=champ/anivia.png] Keep your distance and bait her [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png], dodge it and go trade a [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] and [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] with her. You probably cant kill her but at least you can harass her into basing more than once. (dont overextend to trade and get caught in an [imgsmall=skills/anivia/w.png]/[imgsmall=skills/anivia/r.png] and get ganked) [imgsmall=champ/akali.png] Harass her as much as possible pre 6. If you can manage to hit 6 before her you can land 1 single kill before you need jungle help. Don't be afraid to trade with her using both [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] and [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png], just don't let her auto attack alot. If shes 6, play passive as hell. Her [imgsmall=skills/akali/r.png] wont let you have any breathing room to harass. [imgsmall=champ/annie.png] Watch her stun stacks, feel free to trade with her whenever shes under 4 stacks. (if she has health pots DO NOT go to [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] just use [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] to harass) If you get dropped to 50-60% expect anytime she has a stun she'll flash ignite and drop a combo and down you.. avoid this by abusing lasers [imgsmall=champ/brand.png] Play close attention to his skillshot patterns, dodging his [imgsmall=skills/brand/q.png] and [imgsmall=skills/brand/w.png] is crucial to just survive. Be mindful that his [imgsmall=skills/brand/w.png] crap has as long range as your lasers... so beating him relies on your juking abilities. Once you dodge go in and dmg him. [imgsmall=champ/caitlyn.png] Avoid her [imgsmall=skills/caitlyn/q.png] and harass whenever her headshot isn't up to avoid taking too much dmg in a trade. [imgsmall=champ/cassiopeia.png] Unless your confident in dodging nearly all of her attacks stay back and poke with [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png]. (if you get good go up and hump her and run circles around her while u fight) [imgsmall=champ/chogath.png] rank up [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] first over lasers and spam him every time he misses his [imgsmall=skills/chogath/q.png]. [imgsmall=champ/ezreal.png] eh... poke from distance.. if you get him to 60% before he hits you at all go and start [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png]ing and risk getting hit. Watch out for [imgsmall=skills/ezreal/r.png] [imgsmall=champ/fiddlesticks.png] Don't get close enough to [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] or you die. Wait for jungle while you [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] [imgsmall=champ/fizz.png] [imgsmall=skills/fizz/e.png] will allow him to avoid any spell, skill shot or not. However due to its rather long CD, you can bait it with a [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png], Back off, and then once its up again go and tunnel in everything... You'd best be careful as his harass is probably higher than yours, so if you want. Bait his [imgsmall=skills/fizz/e.png] with [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] (or however you want without getting close) and just continue poking with that until hes around 60%, then start getting in his face with [imgsmall=skills/viktor/r.png] and [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png]. [imgsmall=champ/galio.png] If you can avoid his skillshots well don't be afraid to [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] him pre 6. Once hes 6 don't bother using [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] unless your jungle is ganking... he'll just [imgsmall=skills/galio/r.png] taunt you and you're prolly gonna die to opposing jungle. [imgsmall=champ/gragas.png] He seems to be tanky enough to withstand your harass no matter what you do.. so keep him at around 70% without losing much health yourself and wait for jungle.. You'll want [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] for that gank. [imgsmall=champ/heimerdinger.png] [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] turrets, poke him with lasers. Attempt to not get crazy pushed... lol [imgsmall=champ/karthus.png] Avoid [imgsmall=skills/karthus/q.png] and be careful how often you go to [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] him pre 6. Don't get caught in his slow and get jumped by jungle.. If played right you can down him by lvl 6-8 or force him to back at least. [imgsmall=champ/kassadin.png] Bait him in by last hitting, when he comes to [imgsmall=skills/kassadin/q.png] you, you [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] back. Try to land a laser before he gets out of range. Don't ever trade with him 6+ if you aren't over 70% health its just not worth it xD. [imgsmall=champ/katarina.png] Get [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] before lvl 6. When you see her get ready to [imgsmall=skills/katarina/e.png] on you, Pop [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] on yourself and let her get stunned on her attempted [imgsmall=skills/katarina/r.png]. Gain some range then [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] her before she gets out of your stun. Repeat and she wont be that terrifying.. (if you can land [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] before shunpo that's even better) [imgsmall=champ/kennen.png] Dodge [imgsmall=skills/kennen/q.png] and don't be afraid to [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] if its pre 6. Still level [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] first as you wont be doing much [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] after lvl 6 unless you can land some good [imgsmall=skills/viktor/r.png] [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] combo before he [imgsmall=skills/kennen/r.png]s you. [imgsmall=champ/leblanc.png] Attempt to bait her [imgsmall=skills/leblanc/w.png] thing... without taking damage.. if you can, then poke with [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png].. don't ever be in range for her to hit you with anything.. or your dead. It's best to just shove your lane as hard as possible and start ganking other lanes/jungle once you have [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png]. [imgsmall=champ/lux.png] dodge her skillshots and then move in to [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] and [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png]. Don't get caught in a [imgsmall=skills/lux/q.png] unless you want enemy jungle attention xD [imgsmall=champ/malzahar.png] ew.. avoid the [imgsmall=skills/malzahar/e.png] that bounces around. Try to land a kill pre 6 by dodging his lil [imgsmall=skills/malzahar/w.png] and [imgsmall=skills/malzahar/q.png].. its okay to play aggresive with him pre 6 so long as you dodge correctly. Otherwise you wont get a kill without help. [imgsmall=champ/mordekaiser.png] Watch his resource bar, its a god damn shield. You cant out harass him, so you best pray you out range alll of the damage and be able to counter attack immediately, preferably when his shield is low. Max [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] [imgsmall=champ/morgana.png] BAN HER... Dodge [imgsmall=skills/morgana/q.png] and run into nuke.. repeat til she backs/dies. WATCH THE [imgsmall=skills/morgana/r.png]! Sometimes its best to bait her [imgsmall=skills/morgana/r.png] after she uses her [imgsmall=skills/morgana/w.png] and [imgsmall=skills/morgana/q.png].. most times you're just gonna get ganked if you do that though so stick to passive [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] and [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] when you can. [imgsmall=champ/orianna.png] heh.. ball @!#$.. don't be too afraid of her pre 6 unless she has pots. Dodge her moving lil ball and move in to smash her in. Keep in mind her [imgsmall=skills/orianna/r.png], you can still beat her at 6+ if you know the enemy jungle is elsewhere so long as you already have a health/mana advantage on her [imgsmall=champ/nidalee.png] its rare i know. She'll be AP, [imgsmall=skills/nidalee/q.png] are deadly and heals are decent. Dodge a [imgsmall=skills/nidalee/q.png] and charge her. Chances are she'll [imgsmall=skills/nidalee/e.png] through harass but you should be able to get her out of mana before you are. Be careful post 6. [imgsmall=skills/nidalee/r.png] is still decent damage. yYou just counter it with [imgsmall=skills/viktor/w.png] so don't miss. Point up [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] if you're dodging spears good. [imgsmall=champ/ryze.png] I don't have alot of experience fighting him, most times though i poke with lasers til 6 then launch ult and nuke him before he nukes me... His [imgsmall=skills/ryze/q.png] is short ranged so use that to your advantage and don't get yourself setup for a gank. [imgsmall=champ/sion.png] Get jungle help, poke with lasers only. Run like hell if his [imgsmall=skills/sion/w.png] comes up and he looks at you funny. Again, Push the lane whenever possible if jungle fails ganks or simply cant spare time for you. Go around and help gank other lanes after you push. [imgsmall=champ/swain.png] Dodge his [imgsmall=skills/swain/w.png] and play REALLY aggresive pre 6. If you haven't killed him by his lvl 6 play more passive because of his [imgsmall=skills/swain/r.png] healing being too much. [imgsmall=champ/twistedfate.png] Wait out Yellow [imgsmall=skills/twistedfate/w.png] then move in and unload. Its a short CD so be quick. [imgsmall=champ/veigar.png] bait [imgsmall=skills/veigar/e.png], once you learn his range on it, you'll know when to stop yourself so you don't run into it.. when you dodge the stun and [imgsmall=skills/veigar/w.png] go and hit him. At lvl 6 just poke with [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] and wait for help. If at all possible, Try to deny his farm more than running around to gank.. spend time poking mindlessly to hopefully get him to back. [imgsmall=champ/viktor.png] Start [imgsmall=items/boots-of-speed.png][imgsmall=items/health-potion3.png]. What you level up is solely based on how well you use your lasers. If you think you'll skillshot better early on then lvl [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] style [imgsmall=champ/xerath.png] Dodge stuff, you can go into [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] if you're positive you'll dodge his [imgsmall=skills/xerath/q.png] so the stun from [imgsmall=skills/xerath/e.png] doesn't land. At 6 don't [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] until hes been [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png]ed to under 60%. [imgsmall=champ/ziggs.png] Learn his range on [imgsmall=skills/ziggs/q.png], it blows up the on the first thing it hits making it fairly possible to block it with minions. At the very least standing by minions will force him into a push causing easy ganks/lack of Experience. Dodge alot and you'll find him out of mana fairly fast. Level up [imgsmall=skills/viktor/e.png] and ONLY RUN IN TO [imgsmall=skills/viktor/q.png] when you see his [imgsmall=skills/ziggs/e.png] has been wasted. Otherwise play safe!
