Guide to Countering Ashe as Vel'Koz

Tips for Playing as Vel'Koz against Ashe

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

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.

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.

Advice to Win Against Ashe

Ashe has very few defensive options, and she's a good target to gank.

Be wary of moving around the map alone if Ashe has not recently cast her Enchanted Crystal Arrow.
