Tips Against Vel'Koz as a Support Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

hardkoR says “Good vel'koz is extremely dangerous for swain. After he reaches lvl 6 he can one shot you til the end of the game. His true dmg counters your tank build and he has lots slows and kitting. Only champion with stronger lvl 6 spike then you in bot-lane. ”
Foxirion says “Vel’Koz’s high range and burst damage can pose a significant threat to Nautilus. His ability to poke from a distance can make it difficult for Nautilus to engage.”
Stillo says “When facing Vel'Koz as Braum, the matchup presents a unique challenge due to Vel'Koz's ability to deal true damage with his ultimate, Life Form Disintegration Ray. While you can block Vel'Koz's other abilities, such as Plasma Fission and Tectonic Disruption, using your Unbreakable shield to block Life Form Disintegration Ray exposes you to significant true damage, making Vel'Koz a priority ban for you. To navigate this matchup effectively, you must adopt a proactive approach that focuses on engaging and disrupting Vel'Koz's combos to prevent him from unleashing his ultimate. Braum's crowd control abilities, such as Winter's Bite and Glacial Fissure, can interrupt Vel'Koz's channeling and disrupt his positioning, providing opportunities for your teammates to follow up and secure kills. Additionally, prioritize vision control and map awareness to avoid getting caught out by Vel'Koz's long-range poke and potential roams. Placing wards in key areas and communicating with teammates to track Vel'Koz's movements can help you anticipate his engages and respond accordingly. Furthermore, consider building items that provide additional magic resist and health to mitigate Vel'Koz's burst damage and increase your survivability in team fights. Items like Spirit Visage and Adaptive Helm can help you withstand Vel'Koz's onslaught and remain a resilient frontline presence for your team. Overall, while Vel'Koz presents a formidable challenge for you due to his true damage ultimate, adopting a proactive playstyle, prioritizing vision control, and building defensively can help you navigate the matchup effectively and secure victory for your team.”

Foxirion says “Vel'Koz's long-range poke and true damage abilities make him a major threat to Rakan, as he can easily poke down Rakan from afar and melt him in team fights.”

Forgonidon says “Vel'Koz will be insanely annoying to lane against with his being able to keep you at range - it will be hard to get your combos off.”

RangoFan2011 says “Maybe worst matchup for bard in lane, but you can completely shut him down late game. Other that that take second wind with unflinching, since his Q slows and E is a knockup.”

dino909 says “He will pythagoras' theorem you back into first grade.”
Velkyann says “Very good poke with one of the best ults for teamfights. You will want to dodge his Q and E, you can use your W to dodge his E but everything else only use W if your adc/team can be healed.”

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

otaliz says “Poke him as much as you can pre-level 6. From level 6 onwards, start pushing the wave as much as you can and look for roaming opportunities. Mercury's Treads is a good item to buy at first base, it offers you more movement speed to dodge his abilities, magic resistance and tenacity.”
Laimaudeja says “[I would use the Summon Aery page in this lane, and start Doran's Ring.] Play around minions as often as you can, since Vel'Koz's main damaging ability gets blocked by minions. In case there's no nearby minions, it might be better to walk towards Vel'Koz, as it is harder to recast at closer distance. Remember to hold your Satchel so you can cancel Vel'Koz's ultimate beam's channel.”

Yannou-Ari says “Flash - TP - Scaling HPs. Vel'Koz is annoying because usually when he's picked, the player only plays vel'koz. This lane is poking and movement simulator, just like Hwei, Ziggs and Xerath.”
ShokLoL says “Vel’Koz has a lot of poke and waveclear but if he uses these cooldowns aggressively he will be vulnerable to being traded on. Trying to keep the wave in a gankable position or looking to press forward onto him if he wastes his cooldowns is very important. Positioning in the creep wave can make dodging Qs easier and make sure to not get hit by Es as that’s Vel’Koz’s best way of trading. After level 6 if you get by an E it’s possible Vel’Koz can kill you with ulti, so try hold your E post level 6 to cancel his R unless you're sure you will win the all in regardless. ”

Post 6 if you decide to R forward, make sure he isn't in range to E the other end of your portal or you will take a lot of damage on the way out.”

awawa says “Outranges you, you prob wont kill him in lane without your jungler. Dies when you R. If he hits E, he can deal a lot of damage or even kill you with his R. (passive fear cancels it, keep that in mind) Run mercs and/or banshees if you are struggling.”

MageSept says “Vel'koz is pretty similar to Xerath except Vel'koz skillshots are a bit harder to hit but he has more burst. You need early tier 2 boots against Vel'koz, so Inspiration tree isn't optimal. I would recommend these runes: Phase rush, Nulliyfing Orb, Celerity, Gathering Storm + Second Wind, Overgrowth.”

ShokLoL says “Vel'Koz has a lot of poke but it's relatively easy to avoid. Look to poke him on CD and just make sure you don't get hit by his E. After level 6 you can easily setup ganks onto him, but if you too far without help you can die to his ulti on the way out.”
