1. early game health is a bit of a problem. (1-5) sure a smart veigar should be ok most games unless the other team knows who you are. when you get focused between those lvls it becomes more a challenge of keeping your health topped off then it is last hitting. 1 stun in a slightly wrong place will kill you. Not saying this is too much of a problem but i have seen some nasty gank combos early game.
2. I saw you will be updating your items but what would be nice to see when you do update it is a advanced item list of lets say 3 or 4 sets. Lots of guides tend to put 1 or 2 sets and do not even complete the full 6 slots. Maybe we could even brainstorm some good counter builds for different situations. Not to lose the focus of the full force ap build but to expand options to keep your veigar deadly no matter what the matchup.
3. The elixir is something im torn about. yes it is alot of ap for only 300g but its only 3 minutes. Sure you can do alot in 3 minutes but is it worth the 300g long term? It would be good to get a little more of a backround as to why you buy them when you do and how they change your gameplay if you do not pick them up.
Thanks in advance,
P.S. Still the best guide for veigar in my opinion. Keep up the good work. =)
Haha, don't worry, I plan on addressing all of these! The biggest problem is that I wrote the guide while runes were available. Without runes, Veigar's playstyle is quite different. It makes last hitting more rough, early game slower, and him just do less overall damage.
Also, when I wrote this the builds I listed were the only builds I felt were strong. There were other builds, but not of enough strength to mention. With the store coming out, runes, and a ton of new items, I'm going to be playing him extensively for at least a week or so. After this, I'll likely do a revamp of the item build section. I'm sure his playstyle will largely be the same, but will do some touchups here and there too.
