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

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)”

Avucado says “Arguably Pyke's easiest matchup. Start hook because he wont walk up close enough for E and look for a hook. After 3 you can W up to him into either ability or e through the wave into a hook on him. Watch out for his E because he still does good damage. You will need hexdrinker if he gets ahead.”

Halfhand says “Mercs are a good first item here since it will allow you to dodge his spells alot better.”

iZianni says “Similar range, however its easier for Velkoz to find a kill window. You can still one shot Velkoz unless he has barrier. The issue is if he ever lands two Qs in lane, he can just laser you to death if you try to combo him. Verdant Barrier angle.”

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. ”

XayLies says “You can WindWall all of his abilities except for R that will deal a minor damage if he didn't mark you with his passive. also you can knock him up and disable his R.”
Impossible2Gank says “Can be a hard champ to handle but if you keep moving in lane and get boots asap you'll be fine just try not to get hit 3 times by his abilities as to avoid the true damage proc.”

Polarshift says “You won't be able to get close to him if he plays well and when he knocks you up you're gonna have to burn a flash or you're dead (after 6). However, that's all he is; annoying with a lot of damage. You have better wave-clear and sidelaning.”

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. ”

LunarVortex says “Vel'Koz outranges and outdamages you by a lot. NEVER waste your E on his Q and W poke when he has E and R ready, try to dodge it instead. Buy early boots to make dodging easier. You can catch him offguard and Q him while he's ulting someone else.”

Almaty says “All mage supports are unbearable. That's not just for Rammus ADC I think in general. But especially with this”
yers says “Another artillery mage, he spams a lot more compared to the others. However there's many things you can do to counter him such as going for a long range E stun and then going off of that.”

DjapeFromSerbia says “Outranges Swain, he can't hit E ever on her. Flashing in and all in-ing is only hope.”
Nekostn says “Same thing as Xerath + Brand, Fleet Footwork or an MR rune would make his poke a little less effective.”

Camelorry says “You can only block his q so always block that if there's nothing better to block on the adc's side. Just put your mobility to good use and don't let him poke without putting a fight.”

Spider Shaped says “Много урона,как и АП,так и чистого. Советую лишь убивать его на расстоянии,а если он саппорт,то уклоняйтесь от его q и e.”

Terrific says “Only reason he's in Major is because a good Vel'Koz will ruin your day. But most Vel'Koz players are super bad and because of that i would put him in minor because it's just 2 to 3 hit material if they are bad players.”
Bebras19 says “He's annoying, he will Q you, he will W and E you, he WILL kill you. You need to be extraordinarily careful in order to not get poked low while maintaining farming and poking back.”
