  • Introduction


    This is a guide to show you, why volibear is a really OP Champ. I think u don't trust me when i say that but just read the following lines and you can decide after. 

    I will begin to explain his skills, how to use them, and when.

    Following with the laning, the items  and the phase of gaming (Early, mid and End-game ) 

    Finishing with Runes and masteries.

  • Volibears skills

    If you ever played him, you know that his passiv is just OP in 1 vs. 1. 

    His passiv  Chosen of the Storm  regenerates 5% of his Max. Life every Second during 6 sec.

    It's like Dr.Mundo Ultimate! This passive can really help in 1 on 1, even on diving or in teamfights.


    His Q  Rolling Thunder  is great to engage fights or secure a gank! 

    NOTE: This is not an escape tool! You don't gain Movement speed if your nor chasing an enemy.


    Voli's W  Frenzy is just amazing ! It's like Garen's  Demacian Justice just better.

    Quick explain: Passively gives you attack speed, for every attack.

    Active :this skill does normal AD dammage + 15 % of your bonus health, That means : More dammage if you are more tanky! But that's not all ! The dammage of this attack is increased by 1% for 1% life missing of the target.

    Just an awesome finisher! [ Does in End-Game between 900 - 1500 dmg ]


    [spell=Majestic Roar] is effective for chassing enemies and slowing them. Or good for speed pushing. but also does great dammage.

    This is just average in Teamfights or even in 2 vs. 2 . [spell=Thunder Claws] does magic dammage which bounces on multiples enemies. This can be useful if an low-health target is escaping.

    Thanks to his relativly low cooldown you can use this ult in every teamfight.

  • Laning / Items

    Volibear is not very good in laning as Solo Top. 

    I would only go jungling with him or MAYBE in emergency as a support.

    If jungling: begin with  Boots of Speed and 3 Health potions, begin at the Blue Buff, wolfs, wraiths,then red Buff and try to gank. If possible make the golems or the wraiths and go back. 

    Rush the  Madred's Razors and go for some life, like  Giant's Belt, finish your shoes and finish your  Warmog's Armor  after that you can go for  Glacial Shroud and  Recurve Bow.

    Continue with [item=Wit\'s End] and  Frozen Heart

    Then you can addapt your stuff to the enemies with [item=Ionic Spark] or [item=Madred's Bloodrazor] or even [item=Force of Nature] or  Spirit Visage to renforce your passive.

  • Runes and Masteries

    For runes i recommend

    Greater Quintessence of Fortitude ( + 26 Health ) so +78 Health

    Greater Glyph of Warding (+1.34 Magic resist) or 9 Greater Glyph of Shielding ( +0.15 magic resist per level )

    Greater Seal of Resilience ( +1.41 Armor )

    Greater Mark of Fortitude ( +3.47 Health )

    And for masteries i recommend 9 / 21 / 0 or  0 / 21 / 9

    It's Just Important to get That extra life of [mastery=Durability] and [mastery=Durability] and  Juggernaut


    The Combo with the runes and the masteries gives you like 130 bonus life at lvl. 1 -> Extra dammage with your W. and durability in the jungle. ( Don't forget your passive! )
