I’ve been looking for champions to broaden my champion pool lately. Naturally I picked up the Vel’Koz bundle at launch. Wokendreamer released a guide on Vel’Koz for quick success.
Why did I give Vel’Koz an 8?
Vel’Koz is way over-powered at the moment. He doesn’t feel the mana drain early if you play him like a conventional mid. The big thing though, is the amount of burst damage he does. If you can land consecutive hits enemies just melt. As the game progresses, Vel’Koz can 100-0 most of the carries if he catches them out-of-place.
The big thing though, is the fact that Vel’Koz’s Life Form Disintegration Ray is broken. The attack hits all enemies in a line in front of him. However, at the moment the attack also hits enemies that approach him from behind. Check the video below for a visual representation.
Overall Vel’Koz is a fun champion to play. I just think a few minor tweaks are needed to solidify his kit. Definitely worth the RP I spent on him in the long run, as he matches my long-range play style.
