Additional Vel'Koz Build Insights

League of Legends Vel'Koz players will find him to be a challenging champ to build out properly. You will notice that his build is modified when he is up against either generic or specialized team compositions, meaning you should not select the same Vel'Koz build every game of League of Legends

The most important items to incorporate into your champ's build include: Liandry's Anguish, Rabadon's Deathcap, and Shard of True Ice. Those who included these items in their builds had a higher win rate than players who went for other Vel'Koz builds. Moreover, if you are facing a mixed enemy team arrangement, you should really consider grabbing yourself the Sorcery, and Domination runes. In recent matches, he won the greatest percentage of his games when using these runes.
