Support Veigar

As a Veigar player I cringe every time someone takes him as support.

In lane, he may be effective, kinda, but if the game progresses to 20+ minutes, he is utterly useless in teamfights besides the one time he will use his stun because he does no damage. And if he builds ap, he is a gimped mid lane veigar who has no farm on his q.

Veigar mid does everything Veigar support does only better.

You are vs. a veigar, you expect him to place stun so you are careful. Also, has insane long CD, he misses or uses it? Go all in, punish him during that time. Also, placing it so that edge hits them right on is super risky. Might as well just play Blitz.


You go QEQEQRQEQW to drop the CD on the E to something much more reasonable and increase the duration, plus the CD really isn't that long to start with. Placing it so the edge hits isn't very risky at all, it's pretty easy to do once you've got a few Veig games under your belt.

Also there's some assumption in there that if he misses his stun he and his ADC are gonna get walked all over, which is kinda silly since Veig's still got a Q that doesn't tickle and a whole ADC backing him up.

That said support Veig is still a silly idea.


lolno.

If you're even silly enough to play support Veigar, you max W first. Hit your stun, drop a nuke (No one builds mercs bot) and walk away and hope you don't get punished/your AD can follow up on your stun.

character with farm does everything no farm counterpart does, only better.

Doesn't veigar scale AP off cs?
Not giving him cs mitigates the passive, no?
