Volibear Build Breakdown

Passive deals splash damage plus good resistance. Leading to items that increase attack speed will give Volibear more advantages.

"Three swords" is the first item you can think of. The advantage is increased damage for hand attacks. Combined with "Dynamic Thunder" speed is greatly increased, chasing enemies is much more effective.

"Spiky Armor" The beauty of this item is that it inflicts deep wounds on the enemy. Take hits, attack quickly, inflict deep wounds, no enemy can stand it.

"Spiritual Armor" originally Volibear was able to heal extremely well from at least 2 skills. Now with "Spiritual Armor" Volibear's healing speed is too terrible.

"Red armor" turns giant when on this equipment. All defense stats from magic resistance, armor, effect resistance are added.

How to play Volibear

Keeping the minion position as close to your turret as possible will be able to trade damage more effectively. The goal is to create as many early game advantages as possible.

Early game:

Volibear is very strong at the beginning, very good duel, make full use of Volibear's power at this stage because in the late game Volibear will be weaker.

When reaching level 5 has the ultimate ability can create a large minion to destroy the enemy even when the enemy is hiding in the turret.

Between game:

Go split push, destroy turrets in other lanes. Competing for small goals. There is no need to go with a teammate at this stage.

Willing to solo with any enemy, but must control the map before deciding to solo.

End game:

At this point Volibear is not really too strong. Instead of rushing into a direct attack, find a way to cross the flank, suddenly appear to attack, then step back to let your teammates do the rest.

Try to keep your ultimate before teamfights. Without it, Volibear's power is greatly reduced.

Volibear pros and cons

Pros

Solo 1vs1 good.

The ultimate can be used to attack enemies in the turret. That means if the enemy has low health left. Summon the jungle or you can also finish the prey if you accumulate enough minions to the turret.

In the middle of a split push, the enemy has to disperse their forces. And if the enemy squad is forced to go together to maximize its effectiveness, it is more beneficial to have to separate for your team.

Cons

There are many disadvantages if the enemy has a lot of equipment for deep wounds.

If you focus too much on killing enemies in the turret, you have to set up good enough vision. Takes a lot of time to set eyes. Can lead to miss many minions.

Volibear counters

Equipping deep wounds reduces healing.
