Tips Against Vel'Koz in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Yamikaze says “All his abilities are skillshots, making him really weak against mobile champions like Yasuo. You can use windwall to block Q,W and E but NOTnot the ultimate. If he makes the mistake of walking too far up, dash onto him and play as aggro as possible because you have the advantage in a minion wave. In the later stages of the game you should pressure in the sidelane because he won't be able to match you/run away. ”

lkycch says “Understand that he has highly potent waveclear and poke, so don't waste your mana trying to poke him in lane. Focus on waveclear and let him push, so that your jungler can gank. Use TS+GLP to setup Q+W+Q stuns on him from afar, so that he can't combo you down and has to focus on running away. Be smart about which angle you engage on him, as running together in a straight line with your teammates means he can hit you all with his ult simultaneously. Remember: Summoner's Rift is a 5V5, not a 1v1. You don't have to stay in lane and suffer a losing matchup!”
lkycch says “You can engage on him as soon as his Q slow is down. You have to learn to dodge the angle of his Q as the particles split. If you manage to stun him with E+Q+W+Q, your ADC can followup and burst him down. Use TS+GLP to setup Q+W+Q stuns on him from afar, so that he can't combo you down and has to focus on running away. Be smart about which angle you engage on him, as running together in a straight line with your teammates means he can hit you all with his ult simultaneously. Remember: Summoner's Rift is a 5V5, not a 1v1. You don't have to stay in lane and suffer a losing matchup!”
iZianni says “Max range Q/R, we're dead. Never in range to stun lock him, just boring match up and more of a team fight dependent match up. Super boring. ”

Polarshift says “You won't be able to get close to him and when he knocks you up you're gonna have to burn a flash or you're dead. However, that's all he is; annoying with a lot of damage.”
Yeager says “Matchup very similar to Xerath. The difference between those 2 is the fact that vel'koz has MORE kill potential in lane because he falls off as the game progresses. You have to focus on dodging his E(a displacement ability) that can hold you in place for him to land his entire combo, and his Q(his poke ability with a slow). If you get hit by any of those, he can burst you down with his ultimate. I suggest rushing tier 2 boots ASAP (usually right after lost chapter is completed). His Q can be body blocked, so stay in the minion wave to dodge it easily. Even though he has the range advantage, you outscale him hard, so you don't have to force anything in the laning phase. Glacial Augment vel'koz is also really popular atm. Phase Rush is a good counter to the slows (from his abilities and items)”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Corrupting Potion because Intensive Poke and sustain is heavily needed. Biscuits MIGHT work too but I'd rather have Minion Dematerializer. Ring + 2 Pots also work because you will be able to kill him pre 6 as he actually needs to get a bit close to minions to last hit. It is a very easy matchup because his E is predictable and post 6 you can just keep your W for his R. Get boots if you cannot dodge his E. If you still cannot dodge his E roam, he can push as good as you if not better but he cannot roam and his follow(s) will be slow. Be careful of him when he follows because of his ult. In teamfights you can disrupt as well his ult with your W. Usually winnable matchup due to his inability to deal consistent damage pre 6 when you get too close. Learn his Q pattern in the first levels and you should be fine, hitting Vel'Koz Q's consistently is extremely difficult and you can predict it without fuss if you focus a bit. ”

eiensiei says “I poke him with E without going for passive procs after level 3, as he'll deal more damage with his combo, even through my W. He can constantly push me in and poke under tower with Q while I'm forced to use all my mana to CS. The best advice I have for this match-up is "just dodge and CS enough to stay relevant". I'll build Zhonya's for his R and if I feel like I'm having a really rough time, I'll get Mercury's Treads.”

Sylvan Lore says “Vel'koz is a strong champion into Orianna with high damage and long range skillshots. Keep in mind when he throws out his Q, that he can cancel it early if you dodge towards him. You can win trades only if you dodge his abilities while landing yours. Any time he lands an E, you will more than likely lose the trade pre-6 or die post 6 so stay out of range. Your ult can be used to cancel his if you are quick which may save your team in a lategame fight. Other than that, do your best to shield your allies and peel in team fights while damaging to be more useful than he is. Recommend: Barrier and Vs. AP Assassin Build”

sweodigaming says “His passive deals true damage and can easily delete you, build tanky items like Protobelt, Liandry's Torment and such. He has far more range than you. Doding his Q and E is mediocrely easy however.”

7daysko says “Skill Match-Up. He has superior range, but if you can dodge his E and time your combo correctly, you can disrupt his ulti mid-channel and burst him down.”
FalleN3 says “He out-ranges you a LOT and hits hard. Take Movement Speed Quints for this game and try to not get hit by his combo's. This is a difficult lane but if you manage to get up to him while he is ulting, you can stun him which will interrupt it. This lane is really going to rely on how decent you are at avoiding his skill shots and knock up. ROA or another HP item will be of great use here since he deals a fair chunk of true damage.”

Twitch.Tv-LimitBreaker88 says “Well... This comes down to dodging his stuff. Just keep in mind, that you are playing a dodge game and that he is extremely easy kill with your jungler after 6. You can also cancel his R. Usually this just becomes a waveclear lane and is decided in the eamfight stage. ”

fwii says “Start Corrupting Potion and spam push early. Vel'koz is difficult to approach due to his Q slow so dodge it while farming. Killable at level 6. ”
Scyrine says “whenever he uses his R, dont be afraid to R and cancel his. dodge his skillshots and finish him. He's squishy and weak, it should be free. ”
FalleN3 says “He out-ranges you a LOT and hits hard. Try to not get hit by his combo's. This is a difficult lane pre 6 but if you don't eat up his combo's all the time you will put yourself in a great position to punish him once you have your ultimate. This lane is really going to rely on how decent you are at avoiding his skill shots and knock up. He has 4 skill shots which makes your mobility very difficult for him to deal with. When he ulti's you, you can (E) or (Q) to him and then walk behind him if need be. After level 6 this lane gets easier.”

Dr Eggmund says “Dodge dodge and dodge. This lane is a mini game for Vladimir if he wins by dodging Velkoz's abilities then you should beat him. Be as aggresive as you can when he wastes his abilities. Vladimir is a champion all about timing, waiting for the enemy for their cooldowns is key to winning this lane. ”

AP WormMaW Mid says “Velkoz is possibly hardest matchup, that you might have against any mage-type champion. Main reason is, that his damage output with full combo is insane and even if you build MR, it will not save you against his true damage. Last biggest thing is, that you don't have any interrupt for his ult, so if he manages to land combo, you are most likely dead. In this case just farm up and try to not get killed. You can poke a bit from behind, but don't get into his E range if possible. When you hit level 16, you should be able to win game through pure poke, because your range is just incredibly high compared to his, but mostly it's not easy to get there.”
[S10] WormMaW's Guide for AP Kogmaw (build for ADC included) by AP WormMaW Mid | Kog'Maw Player
Yuki H. says “Difficult lane due to his range and W, which can go through minions. He isn't much of a threat unless you are hit 3 times with his abilities which proc his passive (bonus true damage). As long as his passive doesn't proc, you can pretty much out trade him every time. Once again, your ult and W can dodge any of his abilities so use them wisely. He is also an immobile champion so ask for frequent ganks (junglers love ganking immobile lanes). This is, of course, if you aren't pushed into his tower.”

elnino9 says “Play aggressive when his Q is on CD. Setup Q daggers when he's going for CS. He's VERY squishy and can be out-traded. If he misses knock up, he's open. Careful when he's level 6 because his ult does PLENTY of damage and if you don't have E ready you'd eat a lot of the damage. His ult makes him stationary, take advantage of this. You can all in with EW, but as soon as you do, walk to the side to avoid his knock up, you should anticipate this.”
SkellyBirb says “Vel'Koz can burst you from high health once he hits level 6. He has quite a bit of poke, so position yourself carefully to dodge it. Shrines early on are important to staying in lane.”

Veralion says “HoB/DH, Sword/Dark seal. Vel'koz is quickly becoming one of my favorite lanes as I practice it more and more, and is actually quite a lot of fun to play into. All of his spells are telegraphed and should not hit you, with the exception of the first tick of his W. Back off when that inevitably hits you; it’s a quick cast and a wide area, so it will happen. Make sure not to let him proc his passive. Most of the difficulty of the matchup comes from learning his Q, which is a unique and deceptive mechanic. Hide behind your wave so he can’t directly Q you, then dodge back if he tries to split it around your shields. His E has a very short range but will guarantee his combo if it connects, and is his most threatening ability. If you were close enough that he can follow up a Q hit with an E, you’ve f***ed up. A good Vel will shoot E's right in front of creeps that are about to die, attempting to catch you when you walk up to last hit them. Pay extra special attention to this and don't walk into his trap. You'll take a full combo and be forced to back. If you do this after 6, you probably just die from full. You can wreck him at 6 if he is dumb enough to int into range; he is extremely squishy, builds greedy, and you can easily kill him through barrier, but his spells don’t force him to and a good player won’t give you the chance. If you see a moment, don’t chase after him immediately after ulting in. If he lands E and full combos, you almost certainly will die. Mash flash if he tries to catch you with E at your landing spot. If he is truly determined to play safe, it’s best to either just ult in place and chunk him from range or roam. He's got no mobility and won't be able to answer.”

Tehqo says “He has literally no mobility whatsoever, and it's easy to dodge his skillshots. If you push lane and poke him, he's going to cry like a little baby. Stand behind minions and be careful of his skillshots and you're good.”
NebuIa says “Annoying levels of poke, it's like a worse Xerath. Hide behind minions and don't get hit by his E, and you should be fine. Care for his R damage, it does a LOT even if he only hits Q with it. Corrupting pot will help, and maybe heal, as they don't really go ignite.”

TheSpark says “One of my favorite mages, he works similarly to you in that he lands his cc and bursts you down. His Q poke can be tricky to dodge, and if he maxes W his wave clear will be better than yours. Get your jungler to help gank him, as he is very immobile and only has one slower moving hard cc.”

i am a heron says “velkoz will push you into tower and poke you out of lane. he'll keep you from using your bushes or your Q and melt through your moderate tankiness. he'll scale up and be a monster late-game while you lag behind. bad bad lane. if you end up having to play this, your best bet is to gank him repeatedly and just keep him from ever playing the lane, because you can beat him in the first few levels with your OP shield and your Q is a jungler's wet dream. If VK is smart, though, he won't let you get that close. the good news is that most people play VK bot, not mid, so you shouldn't see him here.”

DravensBukkake says “Ignite/TP matchup. Treat him like other mages. Rule number one, do not stand next to minions. Force him to pick, shove you win or poke you. If he shoves you in, poke him. If he pokes you, shove him in. Never let him accomplish 2 things using abilities. Level 1 if he starts Q, shove that bitch in. If he starts W, harass him hard. W Q AA poke and back off. Continue this process. At around first-second backs, he will be able to shove you in, however he is easy 300g for your jungler with ez af shuffles.”

Euphoric Toaster says “Heimer is weak vs artillery mages, but Vel'Koz is probably the easiest of them to manage. His Q can be blocked by the wave or your turrets and his W is good for pushing the wave but has limited range and does little damage to you. The only way he should be able to kill you early is if he lands his E after poking you down (which shouldn't happen) and he combos you, or with the help of his jungler. He begins to HURT when he gets Luden's Echo and Magic Penetration, so you have to be quick with dodging his abilities and also be especially wary of him firing at you from over walls/in fog of war. If he ever Ults you, hes locked in his channel meaning you get a free RE onto him which can result in an Ult trade or possibly even a kill if hes low/you combo it with turret lasers.”

Chromuro says “*sigh* The Void isn't always nice with you and Vel'koz is everything but friendly. A good Vel'koz will make sure to break your passive whenever he can and his W+P will delete minions from existence. If you get caugth in his E without having the passive active, say goodbye to this cruel world. Farm the most you can and ask ganks to your jungler before it's too late (aka before you get 0/10 in 15 minutes).”

Vispectra says “Poke mage that's really good at poking. He'll make your lane quite the pain and you'll probably miss a lot of CS and EXP due to his constant harassing. Although you can cancel his R with a Q , getting in range is the problem. Vel koz will usually hold onto his E waiting for you to jump onto him only to be knocked up and then heavily damaged or killed by him. Try to slip into sidelanes later on to make up for the loss and ping for help , he's immobile.”

unownreality says “Velkoz is equally as bursty as lux. Both are matched fairly well. I reccomend playing slightly off the minion line, to avoid the inevitable W farm, but close enough to avoid the Geometry wars of his Q. Best chance to get them is right after using his knockup. You are slightly outranged on singularity here, so he has the small advantage, but mostly its a skill matchup. ”

RagexAddict says “You're one of Vel'Koz's biggest counters. His E is hard to land even on an immobile target. When that ability is down, make sure to be aggressive at that point. It's very hard for him to turn while using his ultimate, and your ultimate will also stop his from channeling. If he does try to counter attack with his ult. Use your E to position yourself behind him after you ult him so he can't lock you down.”
LyndonK9 says “Geometry. When he Qs don't walk away from him but walk towards him or stand in your minion wave. Walk out of minion wave when his Q is down because he always Ws the wave. Squishy and very all-inable.”

AzureArmatt says “Vel koz is Poke mage with great potential to burst his targets but his abilities are quite easy to doge if you are familiar with them. His most dangerous combo starts with his AoE knock up on E followed by W and Q finished by his R. his passive apply "research" stacks that let him "research" his target, once you are researched (hit 3 stacks) u will receive a chunk of true damage and vel koz ultimate will deal true damage to you instead of magic damage which is way worse for somebody like Ahri and her low hp pool. so run away from his ultimate and abilities so he won't be able to do his "research" and you will win that lane if you manage to close the distance between you and him since his poke range is superior compared to yours”

Shaawn says “All his abilities are skillshots, making him really weak against mobile champions like Yasuo. You can use windwall to block Q,W and E but NOTnot the ultimate. If he makes the mistake of walking too far up, dash onto him and play as aggro as possible because you have the advantage in a minion wave. In the later stages of the game you should pressure in the sidelane because he won't be able to match you/run away.”
