He has the range of assassins but the mobility of a potato rolling up a hill

I have recently started playing Viktor as a support and I really enjoy playing him like this. Please don't kill all his utility, if anything can you make small buffs to his utility?

I know it's not really his role, but the same could be said for Morgana, she wasn't intended to be the most op support...

In my opinions Viktor doesn't need much of a buff. Some players have already proven that in the right hands he can be very effective.


That being said, here are some changes to his abilities that I believe would make him more interesting. I'm probably terrible at balance but I believe these changes would positively impact his mid and lategame the most and would allow him to feel a bit more interesting.

Power Transfer (Q)

Range: from 600 to 800
Mana Cost: from 45/50/55/60/65 to 80/90/100/110/120
Cooldown: From 9/8/7/6/5 seconds to 10/9/8/7/6 seconds
Damage: from 60/125/170/215/260 +65% AP to 90/140/190/240/290 +70% AP
Shield: from 32/50/68/86/104 +26% AP to 20+(20/25/30/35/40)% AP
AUGMENT: Simply +20% more damage (and as a result, 20% more shield) on this ability.



Gravity Field (W)

Range: from 625 to 400/450/500/550/600
Mana Cost: from 65 to 80
Cooldown: from 17/16/15/14/13 seconds to 14/13.6/13.2/12.8/12.4 seconds
Damage: Now deals (10/20/30/40/50 +10%AP) damage per seconds for up to 4 seconds to all enemies in the gravity field.
Stun duration: from 1.5 seconds to 1.25 seconds
AUGMENT: Gravity Field now deals half damage, but gains +15% cast range and the stun duration is doubled.



Death Ray (E)
Range: from 540 to 270 (ouch). however, the laser's travel distance is increased from 500 units to 800 units, and moves slightly faster.
Mana Cost: from 70/80/90/100/110 to 55/60/65/70/75
Cooldown: from 13/12/11/10/9 seconds to 18/16/14/12/10 seconds
Damage: from 70/115/160/205/250 +70% AP to 35/65/95/125/155 +40% AP. Now additionally deals (8/10/12/14/16)% of the target's current health as magic damage.
Other effects: Stuns all targets hit for 0.3 seconds.
AUGMENT: Now deals the greater value between (8/10/12/14/16)% of the target's missing health or (8/10/12/14/16)% of the target's current health. The AP ratio is also increased to +55% AP.



Chaos Storm (R)
Range: from 700 to 550
Mana Cost: from 100 to 130/155/180
Cooldown: from 120 seconds to 105/100/95 seconds
Initial Magic Damage: from 150/250/350 +55% AP to 200/325/450 +40% AP
Magic Damage per Bolt: from 40/60/80 +24% AP to 30/50/70 +20% AP
While Viktor is near the Chaos Storm, he gains +8/9/10% movement speed.




I feel like these changes would certainly make him more fun. But also probably OP since I suck at balancing. Had fun coming up with it though maybe one or two of these changes will sound interesting, but I understand it's a complicated thing to heavily rework a champion.


Please don't listen to this person Riot his wish is to murder Viktor

So wait...is that new screenshot in the board the new Q animation? So it's another laser? Am I understanding this right?

If so, that's...weird. So now he'll have 2 laser animations. At least is fixes the whole immediate shield problem. I guess it'll have to grow on me.


If you look at the damage being dealt its doing both physical and magic damage so we can assume that his q will be an aa buff. So if you consider his aa's animation a laser then yes he has a second laser.

Non-Viktor players: Have you ever even considered playing Viktor or played him in the past? If so, what turned you off Viktor/what did not meet your expectations?



The learning curve was both high and unforgiving.
