Hello there!

I'm new to the game, and honestly, quite bad at it. I normally play Annie and only recently started playing Veigar, and was wondering, who is a champion that I should start playing to help me get better? Or should I just keep playing the way I am now, and use the old routine of 'Practice makes Perfect'? Also, who is a good champion overall? I was thinking of buying Kennen or Xerath, but I am not sure. I kinda like to have good burst damage, but am open to trying anything new, preferably an AP carry though, or really any AP at all.

Thank you for your time,
Elikzer

I just went over your match history and think this will help you

1. Always buy boot
**Veigar is really slow without boot, he is also very squishy, meaning he is going to need some movement speed
2. Try to build DFG on Veigar
DFG is a common accepted "Core" (Must have) item on Veigar, it allows you to burst any enemy that doesn't stack MR in a full combo
3. Last hit!
Veigar is a character that is really weak at early game, so don't risk anything and try to keep farming! Especially with your Baleful Strike (Q) it gives you AP if you last hit with it!

Is it sad that i had to do research to find out what DFG is?

Anyway, thanks for the support, hopefully I won't suck as much now :P

If the support try to hide in the river bush, the bottom lane should kill her, that is not the job of jungler, but the bottom lane itself. Sitting at the river bush is just bad positioning on the support part (think about how she will be trapped if the jungler comes from top while the bottom lane's player will trap her path back to turret.

Any tips for 2 v 1ing? it seems to be the new meta in normals *sigh*

Also i was talking about 2 kill lanes top and bot, like Leona Cait top Natalus graves bot etc. Top lane is going to be useless for the team so its 5 v 4 basicly i guess jungler could get out of control but clearing their jungle opposed to taking a turret doesn't seem like an even trade to me

P.S Thanks for all the help i' really appreciate it

Nasus, Veigar, Gragas, Kassadin, Kog, Vayne

These champions are all requires to level up or farm up to become a real threat, don't leave these guys alone at all cost.

May I add Cassiopeia? know she can farm perfectly safely and stuff. But an aggressive Cass can outpush mid if she's good, and even get kills. If she harasses them low enough or gets a kill, she can easily gank other lanes.

Cass is more like in between, her skill set allows her to dominate at any game phrase, meaning she is not completely one sided like Veigar or Vayne.
