“Punish him early for huge mana cost and build safer if you are ahead too
“I'll poke him with E-AA early on and force out his TP. After level 3 I'll avoid passive procs unless I trust my happy feet to dodge his Q-W inside his cage. All in all, I out-range him and he's an easy target for a one-shot before he gets Zhonya's (I'll get a Zhonya's of my own for his R). He scales extremely well though so having a jungler drop by and shut him down early is a good idea.”
“Yone is great against immobile mages like veigar. His only CC (the cage) can be countered with your E2 since it makes you unstoppable, so you can basically go for trades already from level 3 and play really aggressive in this lane. ”
“Poke this squirt with Q's until the bitter end. Remember that if you are stuck inside his stun then pool out of danger. The secret to beating Veigar is to Pool his Ult and his stun. Master these and you will beat him and all in's will be simple.”
“Pretty easy matchup, your w can go through his ultimate , also your w can block his ultimate, you'll oneshot him, just watch when he uses his ult, when you are inside his w, dont just go awat with your w , just poke him and dodge”
“Veigar has a really strong late game due to his stacking AP, but it usually never gets to the point where he actually outscales an Orianna. You can harass him early since his W and Q are not that hard to dodge. Lots of people take barrier, but i find cleanse really counter Veigar, since 9 times out of 10, if i die to him it was because i got stunned in his cage and he landed a full combo on me. If you do get caught to close, just walk into the cage and cleanse out instantly to escape whatever damage he was going to land on you.
Recommend Cleanse and Dmg Build with a Banshee Veil as item 4-6 so that if he does get that the insane level, you have a shield to block high damage spells.
Recommend Cleanse and Dmg Build
Note: If he goes tank, opt into Liandry's Torment and Void Staff. ”
“If you're trapped in Veigar's stun circle try to get out with your R. If you can't get out before his attacks land, you're probably dead.”
“Veigar is very hard to kill pre-6 as his cage stops you from being able to do a trade. After 6 the matchup comes to who can combo who first and Yone has more hard CC so he wins. Take Doran's Shield and the Standard page with MR.”
“extremely squishy. apply full pressure on him especially after he uses his ring. after that he should easily be killed by any basic combo. just watch out for his CC and you should be fine. ”
“Doran+pots or Corrupting, really your choice here based on how well you can dodge q/w and how well you can stay outside of cage-range.
Pick Barrier if you feel you are going to get outplayed by his R.
He has kill potential on you only post 6 when he gets his ult so before that you can do pretty well and even get a kill. Careful on when your jungler ganks/their jungler ganks YOU, his cage is extremely powerful. Cleanse might help in this case especially since you want to kill him (so he would basically have no CC spell if you Cleanse/Flash properly on his face early on). Post 6 if you have a stopwatch you can predict his R if he uses it without stunning you, nullifying his damage (even mid-late game - if someone zhonyas/stopwatch his R he lost a huge chunk of his damage -- a good Veigar will be careful about this). As always: ROAM - because Veigar is not that easy to kill on lane due to his E. Get MR if needed.”
