Guide to Synergizing Vel'Koz and Neeko

Tips for Playing as Vel'Koz with Neeko

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 Neeko Will Play

You can set her passive to use hotkeys in the options menu. The default is Shift+F1~F5

Try to use Inherent Glamour sparingly, ineffective uses will put enemies on the alert.
