what exactly is the counter in a casual game to a 900AP veigar? casual meaning you don't have 5 organized stuns, don't indefinitely roll with a 5man gank squad, etc.

thanks.~

Magic resist and silence or stuns. He's a squishy little gnome, but you have to draw your spell faster than he does.

Banshee's Veil also makes him **** himself with rage.

Honestly? You can't.

If he's already at 900 AP then his attacks do too much damage for you to take any of them (even baleful strike). You can only stop Veigar early on - make sure he never gets any assists/kills to power up soul stealer or money for zonya's ring.

Veigar is almost useless early on (in terms of damage; his stun is always useful), so that's the time to strike. Just like with Twitch.

his AOE stun has .... the largest range in the game does it not? from casting point to far side of the ring. and has 2 single target point-click nukes

so how do you get close enough to silence him without being in instant mortal danger. and what item build on what character is feasible to stack enough MR to even begin to make a dent?

and to the last post, we did. farmed him 4 times in first 10 minutes, he proceeded to go 18-0 after that

get merc boots make his stun useless. veil counters his ultimate if he stupid enough to use it. if his inside the circle with you hit him till you reach the edge and don't get stunned. rinse and repeat till his dead. /dance

Flash helps you close really well. I don't know about MR builds, because I don't know who you're playing.

Also, MUNDO COUNTERS AS HE PLEASES. MUNDO EATS LITTLE SQUISHY GNOME!

Flash will also counter his ultimate, or a baleful if you're low enough.

Sounds like a game I was in...

Anyway, a good Veigar player knows to stay back. He doesn't initiate, he's a caster, but once things are started he can do a lot of damage to all of you. If you see Veigar closing in after a team battle and you're anything besides a full health tank, run for the hills. I've personally taken out a full health Fiddlesticks with baleful strike + primordial burst.

You can't win by stacking MR - he can stack AP faster than you, and for every kill, he gets even more. You win by being smart - know what he can do. But ultimately, remember that he is very squishy. Tanks work well against him, especially early on. Mundo is a pretty good counter, but don't get cocky; even Mundo can be stunned.

Veigar isn't a carry: if his team is good, he'll stick in the back and rack up kills for soulstealer, then when team battle time comes he'll decimate you guys.

Veigar is as good as his team. As long as his team isn't sucking wildly, he'll slowly build up power and then come crashing down on top of your heads.

Yes, that's true - it won't go through terrain, i.e., trees, but I don't think you can out run it if it's just a clear path.
