“Just like vladimir veigar is mostly looking to scale up. Be careful for his cage and get mercs if you feel like you need them.”
“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. This is a lane where you will be looking for kills early on. The only thing you have to watch out for are jungle ganks. ”
“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.”
“Glacial augment veigar is really popoular atm. Normally champions lose out on damage when going glacial, and in exchange they get more CC. Veigar doesn't really lose out on that much damage compared to other users of glacial augment (Ahri for example) because of his passive.
Your counter against glacial augment build is phase rush. You also want cleanse if they have an oppressive jungler or someone with hard CC. Banshee's veil is a great item against veigar and his E.
In the laning phase, veigar is quite weak early on. He will always try to prepare 2 minions at once in order to kill them at once with Q, and get the most out of his passive.
You can bully him a lot early on and punish whenever he's walking up too close to farm. Against aggressive junglers, you can also pull the wave towards your side of the lane. Veigar has 0 mobility, so if he's forced to play at your side of the lane, he will be exposed to ganks. ”
“He can really block your mobility with one good E - Event Horizon. Use wind wall to block Q + R and try to dodge his W by walking inside his E or moving freely with E - Sweeping Blade dashing if you're not inside of his E”
“His kit is very straight forward and his cage is super easy to spellshield. He is also an easy Q target. Be aware of his burst damage with ult though.”
“We outrange and one shot Veigar, he does the same to us if we get hit by box though :/
Should always win this lane, its just Veigar is looking to scale so we want to punish him early. If there's a jungle difference, the box is a nightmare.”
“Very easy early game, start E and play very aggressive without taking too much damage or making yourself too gankable. Walk past wave and look for hooks if you can. If he refuses to walk anywhere near you then roam. You will NEED a hexdrinker this game unless he is literally 0/10. Stay aware of his cage if you're going after someone near him. Don't use flash for kills later in the game because you will need it to get out of the cage. ”
“Veigar is a pretty simplistic matchup. He can't really trade into you other than with his Q. So push him under turret and try not to get caught off-guard by his cage. He will try to setup easy ganks, which can be avoided. You out damage him almost every stage of the lane even at 6. Your roaming is also a lot better and you should mostly have control over him at all parts. Try to look to either roam or shut him down with ganks. ”
“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.”
