Hey everybody, I'm BarackOsama. I'm a little over 1600 Elo right now and I've been playing Viktor since the day he was released. He's a fun character with lots of possible builds and varies team control abilities. This is my first guide, and I welcome constructive feedback. This guide will attempt to map my playstyle with Viktor as a top laner. Here's a quick list of pros and cons for those who are just skimming the guide. I give far more in-depth analysis in later chapters. Pros: -Unexpectedly high damage -Longest poking range in the game -Unparalleled team zoning abilities -Strong scaling on spells and high base damage means you will nuke harder and harder throughout the game -Hard to get ganked -Very reliable damage trader during laning phase Cons: -No sustain / mana reliant until first bluepill -Damage is low againts certain champs before level 6 -Slow movement and requires precise aiming -ULTRA weak againts gap closers

One thing i notice is that alot of top lane champions have the ability to sustain itself. Such as Nidalee, Warwick, and various other champion that buys Wriggles Lantern to sustain. However, the damage burst and the shield gain from Power Transfer doesnt require you to buy lane sustain items. In fact, with just a couple of Health Potions, you are able to dominate champions like Nidalee, Irelia and Trydamere etc. Due to most of the top lane champions are Melee, they have to come close to get a CS, and when that happens, one Power Transfer is able to do enough poke towards that champion. Even if the retaliate to your attacks, the shield gain from Power Transfer helps you win the damage trade easily. Moreover, when your wards are up, you are basically INVULNERABLE to ganks as you can drop one Gravity Field, and your escape rate is 100%. Provided if the enemy doesnt have flash, if not, save that flash of yours if you know the enemy jungler has flash too. Most frequently asked qustion :Why the hell DO YOU PICK A VIKTOR WHEN YOU CANNOT INITIATE/TANK LIKE WHAT OTHER TOP LANER'S ROLE ARE? Answer : To play Viktor in top, you have set your mindset into a different perspective. You synchronize with your team's jungler. Make sure he knows that you can no longer be the frontline/initiater. BUT, when you have a great Initiater/tanker/Frontline/Wall, with a Viktor at the backlines supporting your AP (such as Cassiopeia, they both go perfectly together), it is impossible to penetrate/dive the backlines of the team. SO, the mentality when you play as Viktor top is : YOU'RE THE SUPPORT TO YOUR AP. JUST LIKE A SUPPORT TO THE AD CARRY. Like Janna to Vayne, Nunu to Kowmaw. So, just think of this : CC them, CC them. CC them. CC them. Dominate my lane. Dominate my lane. Dominate my lane. Zone control. Zone control. Zone Control. and pentakills. pentakills. pentakills.... There is one thing i must say though: Your footwork when you are playing Viktor must be VERY precise. One wrong move and you can cost the team. Always remain in a Diamond formation ( A tanker infront, and the other 4 as the backlines )

[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] THIS IS AN AMAZING ability. A build-in Ap per Level item. Simply wonderful. However, you can upgrade it once into an item that can enhance your basic abilites. Augment Power Transfer : It gives you 30% bonus movement speed for 3 seconds when you cast the spell. (Whether Power Tranfer hits the target or not, it will still give you the movement speed buff.) It also adds +220 Health and +6 Health Regen per 5 seconds. Augment Gravity Field : It gives you 30% additional cast range on Gravity field. THIS IS WHY YOU UPGRADE YOUR HEX CORE INTO IT. BECAUSE IT ADDS RANGE TO YOUR GRAVITY FIELD. AND LONG RANGE GRAVITY FIELD = ULTIMATE TEAM ZONING. not because of the additional +220 Mana or +10% Cooldown Reduction it gives. Augment Death Ray : It gives your Death Ray an additional +30% Damage Over Time effect on the target that it hits. Also, it adds a huge amount of +45 Ability Power to you. Cool augment, but not for a top laner Viktor, augment this if you are playing Viktor in mid lane. [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] Q HIM. WHENEVER YOU CAN. AND HE CAN'T DO A SHIT BACK TO YOU. MUAHAHAH. simple as that. Most reliable and consistent damage of Viktor. And when you have your Rylai's Scepter, this gets even better. [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] Mentality when using this skill : TO STOP THEM FROM ENTERING YOUR COMBAT ZONE. never think of this skill as to Stun or Slow other champs down. How to use : Drop this BEFORE THE FIGHT STARTS, in between the frontline and the AP/AD of the enemy team. Say bye bye to team as your AD slowly chomps their tank down like a piece of cake since his backup is already cut off. [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 opponenets struck in its path.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] My personal favourite poking skill. Deals alot of damage. Nothing special. Just a damaging spell. [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] BEHOLD! The best part of Viktor. Silences an area like Blitzcrank's Static Field , deals damage per second to the area of the cloud is in, and it can FOLLOW an enemy champion(even stealth ones, to its death.

Q > E > W (for zoning) > R (to finish them if they managed to walk pass your W) Q first of course. It is the most consistent damage from Viktor. Self-explanatory. E to follow up after you Q the target. Deal a superb burst of damage if timed well with Q. W to zone enemy formations. R to anti spells being cast. and to scare them away.

Try him out! I welcome constructive comments. This is my first guide and I am not very well-versed in guide-writing, so please help me help the community at large. I'll try to update and respond as I get better and better with this champion.

Comments coming soon!
