Guide to Countering Amumu as Vel'Koz

Tips for Playing as Vel'Koz against Amumu

Be very careful about when to use Life Form Disintegration Ray. Many champions have abilities that can interrupt the spell.

When laning, use Void Rift to kill minions while building stacks of Organic Deconstruction on your opponent. You can then follow up with your other abilities.

Shooting Plasma Fission diagonally and splitting at maximum range allows you to hit opponents that are out of the range of the initial missile, but is more challenging to pull off.

Advice to Win Against Amumu

Erratic movement, or hiding behind creep waves can make it difficult for Amumu to instigate a fight with Bandage Toss.

Amumu's Despair makes purchasing primarily Health items a risky proposition.

Avoid bunching up with other allies when Amumu has his ultimate available.
