Best Veigar Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in League of Legends

Every league of legends player has fought against a Veigar mid lane and has experienced being one-shot. Veigar the tiny master of evil is an immobile and squishy little mage that can deal tons and tons of damage. Enemies hit or opponents that die from his spell increases Veigar’s passive Phenominal Evil Power. Here is the best item and rune set for Veigar in Patch 12.15

Best Veigar Build

Veigar’s passive already increases his ability power tremendously so building items that has utility or magic penetration is better than building more ability power items.


Best Veigar Runes

For this Veigar build, you’re gonna have to empower your early game pokes because your late game power is already crazy strong because of Phenomenal Evil Power. For this, you can simply take electrocute to extend your poke damage during the early game. Electrocute keystone rune adds a small burst to your combo giving you the HP advantage during the laning phase.

Best Rune Path



Best Keystone


Best Slot 1 (Rune)

Taste of Blood

Manaflow band

Best Slot 2 (Rune)

Eyeball Collection


Best Slot 3 (Rune)

Ingenious Hunter

Once Veigar stuns enemies, he can quickly follow it up with his combo so Taste of Blood and Manaflow band are easily activated everytime he pokes an enemy. Transcendence also gives Veigar higher kill pressure as he can cast his spells more frequently especially if he executes an enemy champion.

In league of legends Eyeball collection scales along with Phenomenal Evil power as both of these things stack and give Veigar mid-late game power. Ingenious hunter is picked purposefully for Everfrost’s active cooldown.

Best Veigar Rune Shards

Veigar is a caster which means he will benefit from offensive damage and cooldown reduction, so one point on Cooldown reduction from offense and one point on Adaptive force from Flex is the go to rune shard. The defense rune is up to you wether your lane opponent is an AP or an AD.

Best Rune Shards



+10% Cooldown Reduction


+9 Adaptive Force


+8 Magic Resist

Best Veigar Spells

For summoner spells, you’re gonna need flash and Teleport since you already have extremely high kill pressure in lane. These summoner spells are great for responding to team fights in whatever lane that needs help.

Best Spells




Teleport especially when it becomes enhanced give Veigar extremely strong ganking potential thanks to the speed boost it provides.


Best Veigar Abilities Order

Dealing magic damage is quite fun with this skill order. Baleful Strike is the first ability to be maxed in this skill order. It has very low cooldown and has a fast bolt of dark energy projectile speed so it is quite easy to last hit minions or hit enemy champions with it. Baleful Strike is also quite useful for controlling the mid lane minion wave.


Dark matter is next for this skill order as it is a quick follow up for his event horizon crowd control. His basic combo is simply Event horizon followed by Baleful Strike, into a Dark Matter and end it with primordial burst if the enemy hp is low enough. Dark Matter scales with the target’s missing health.

Best Veigar Items

Veigar players love to burst opponents on one combo alone. Veigar deals magic damage so building mage items that improve his kill pressure is great. Having tons of AP is not enough so adding utility effects like a crowd control to follow up your stun will work nicely. Here is the best item build for Veigar.

Best Starter Veigar Items

Veigar mains know that having high AP is not enough, mana regen and cooldown reduction does the trick so starting with Doran’s ring is much better than an amplifying tome.

First Item

Second Item

Doran’s Ring

Health Potion

Best Mid Game Veigar Items

For mid game, you already need to have your mythic item and that is Everfrost. This item has a mythic passive that also scales well with Phenominal Evil Power. Rabadon’s Deathcap is also a core item and the only high AP item for Veigar that scales really well with Phenomenal Evil Power.

First Item

Second Item

Third Item


Sorcerer’s Shoes

Rabadon’s Deathcap

Ionian boots of Lucidity or Sorcerer’s shoes are two great boots for Veigar but for this build we are gonna have to go for Sorcerer’s shoes because this lets Veigar deal with the magic resist items of enemies. Rabadon’s Deathcap also makes your Primordial burst a press R to win mechanic especially if you have a high stack on your Phenomenal Evil Power.


Best Final Late Game Veigar Items

For full build, you need items that will help you deal with the magic resists of opponents like Void staff along with some protection for yourself and scale with Phenomenal Evil. Zhonya’s hourglass and a Banshee’s veil are two items that you can use to avoid initiation from opponents and burst from assassins.

First Item

Second Item

Third Item

Fourth Item

Fifth Item

Sixth Item


Sorcerer’s Shoes

Rabadon’s Deathcap

Void Staff

Zhonya’s Hourglass

Banshee’s Veil

Void Staff gives you tons of magic penetration that easily penetrates even high magic resist from opponents because of its percentage penetration making your Primordial burst much stronger.

Best Champions to pair Veigar with

Allies that can tower dive and disable the enemy champion synergizes with Veigar pretty well. Volibear and Kindred are both junglers that can slow and tower dive mid lane enemies giving Veigar an even higher kill pressure. Veigar can simply use primordial burst to follow up these champion’s engages and gain a takedown.

Strongest Champions against Veigar

Veigar’s counter are enemies that can take advantage of his immobile nature. Enemies like Vel’Koz, Taliyah, and Malzahar can exploit this weakness tremendously shutting Veigar out of the game.

Weakest Champions against Veigar

These League of legends champions have the lowest win rate against Veigar at any phase of the game. They are usually easily countered by Veigar’s burst for being too squishy for his primordial burst or his event Horrizon that effectively shuts off mobile enemies like Yasuo when he is using his dashes.


Win Rate %








Veigar mid has insanely high ability power in league of legends. Stack your passive and throw baleful strike whenever you want towards any enemy unit. Riot games really made Veigar a balanced champion, he might be able to deal tons of damage but he can’t take on in return. But if you are a good Veigar player, you know how to mitigate his squishiness and demolish opponents.
