LoL: Wild Rift Veigar Champion Guide: Best build, items, and everything you need to know

Veigar, or the Tiny Master of Evil, is one of the most downright broken champions in Wild Rift, in the hands of the right person. Veigar is like Senna in a way, in the sense that he can scale indefinitely. That means each time he gains a Passive stack, he will get more AP. 

In turn, that makes Veigar a champion that is extremely weak in the early game, but a true Master of Evil in the long run if given the chance to scale. As a Veigar player (advice from another Veigar player), all you need to do is play it safe until level 5 and until you know you have the damage to one-shot dismantle the enemy. The best way to do so is to just slowly stack up the Passive by hitting the enemy with Skill 1 while farming (I'll elaborate more below). 

In this League of Legends: Wild Rift Veigar guide you'll find everything you need to know about the champion, from his skills and how to allocate them to his build, skill combo, and runes. This is what you will find in the Veigar guide below:

Veigar skills

League of Legends: Wild Rift Veigar's skills:

Phenomenal Evil Power (Passive)

Veigar now gains passive stacks by hitting enemy champions once again.

Baleful Strike (Skill 1)

Veigar unleashes a bolt of dark energy that deals magic damage to the first two enemies hit. Units killed by this bolt grant Veigar some ability power permanently.

Dark Matter (Skill 2)

Veigar calls a great mass of dark matter to fall from the sky to the target location, dealing magic damage when it lands. Stacks of Phenomenal Evil reduce Dark Matter's cooldown.

Event Horizon (Skill 3)

Veigar twists the edges of space, creating a cage that Stuns enemies that pass through.

Primordial Burst (Skill 4 / Ultimate)

Blasts target enemy champion, dealing a large amount of magic damage, increasing based on the target's missing health.

How to combo as Veigar in Wild Rift:

All of Veigar's combos are situational, but make sure you use the following tips when playing Veigar in order to have the utmost success: 

- Skill 3 -> Skill 2 -> Skill 1 -> Skill 4 (Ultimate)

Fairly simple and self-explanatory - you want to stun your opponent before you hit Skill 2. Then, quickly follow up with Skill 1 while Skill 2 is still charging. You can also add in an extra Skill 4 if you've learned it if you are 100% sure it will kill the enemy. 

- Use Skill 3 to discourage people from following you

If an enemy is following you in the jungle or in lane, use Skill 3 on your position to escape. Most enemies won't risk getting caught and potentially giving Veigar a free kill. You can also use it underneath the tower in case an enemy decides to dive you (even though I doubt many will try that for this reason).

- Advanced tip: Use Skill 1 to farm and poke the enemy at the same time

It will be fairly difficult to do at first, but once you get the hang of it, you'll manage to pull it off nicely. What you aim to do is carefully read Veigar's Skill 1 - it can only damage two enemies. Use one of the charges to last hit a minion, and since the skill still has one charge left, make sure you're positioned in such a way so that when it travels it will hit the enemy. That way you'll gain stacks and farm reliably.

It's not easy to pull off since you need to learn the skill's exact damage as well as how to position accordingly. However, it's one of the few things every good Veigar player will use when laning, especially against melee targets. 

- Don't waste Mana

It shouldn't come as a surprise, but in the early game Veigar's Mana pool is extremely shaky. You don't want to use skills unless you are 100% confident you can kill an enemy or get an assist. Otherwise, you want to keep Mana since a Veigar with 0 mana is extremely weak. 

- Never start your combo with the Ultimate

The ultimate skill deals more damage based on the enemy's missing HP, so you can use that to snipe off low health enemies that try to escape, or "secure" kills for extra stacks. 

Wild Rift Veigar - In what order to level up the skills?

For Veigar, the best way is to max your Skill 1 first, then Skill 2, and finally Skill 3.

  • Level 1: Skill 1
  • Level 2: Skill 2
  • Level 3: Skill 3
  • Level 4: Skill 1
  • Level 5: Skill 4
  • Level 6: Skill 1
  • Level 7: Skill 1

Keep leveling Skill 1 until it's maxed, then focus on Skill 2, and lastly on Skill 3. Don't forget to keep adding 1 point into your Skill 4 (ultimate) whenever possible.
