Guide to Synergizing Vel'Koz and Alistar

Tips for Playing as Vel'Koz with Alistar

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 Understand How Alistar Will Play

Using Pulverize can allow you to establish better positioning for Headbutt.

Move Speed is very important on Alistar. Consider which boots to buy carefully.

Using Flash can allow you catch your target off guard to knock them back into your allies with Pulverize and Headbutt.
