Best Vel'Koz Runes
If you are battling a mixed enemy team comp, you should strongly consider getting Vel'Koz the Arcane Comet, Manaflow Band, Transcendence, Scorch, Relentless Hunter, and Taste of Blood runes. In recent games, he won the largest percentage of his games when using these runes. However, if you are fighting a more single focused enemy team composition, such as an AP heavy or a crowd control centric team, you should instead look down and to the right to view the best Vel'Koz runes to win your particular match.

Best Items for Your Vel'Koz Build
The most critical items to incorporate into your Vel'Koz build are: Liandry's Anguish, Banshee's Veil, Zhonya's Hourglass, and Horizon Focus. Moreover, like our rune builds, you can also find quality, dedicated, Vel'Koz item builds below for the particular enemy team comp you are playing in your ongoing game. Players who added these pieces in their kits had a much higher winrate than players who tried for other Vel'Koz builds.
