League of Legends S12: Veigar Mid Build Guide

From runes to items, gameplay tips amd more, we've put together a guide to help you master playing Veigar in the midlane in League of Legends.

Be mindful that there are several ways to build and play a champion, and you'll need to be adaptable as the game and the enemy team progress.

That said, this guide is a good starting point to helping you get to grips with the champion and making an impact in your games.

Skill Order

While your choices may differ according to how the game progresses, the typical Veigar skill priority is:

R > Q > E > W

Summoner Spells

These are the summoner spells most typically taken by Veigar in this role. Naturally, this may change depending on match-ups.

Flash - League of Legends
Teleport - League of Legends


You'll want to focus on farming - or at least hitting enemies - in the early game, as Veigar very much depends on snowballing thanks to tons of stacks on his passive. Play safe, and in the lategame you'll become a one-shot master thanks to almost infinite AP scaling. 

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Baleful Strike, so you can begin stacking Phenomenal Evil. Use it to last hit minions. 
  • Level 2 - Take Dark Matter, so you can clear minions more quickly. 
  • First Back - Work towards your Everfrost, or pick up early boots for more magic penetration.

Tips & Tricks

  • Don't hesitate to farm Raptors from your lane, using Dark Matter and Baleful Strike. This will grant you free stacks of Phenomenal Evil. Naturally, clear it with your jungler first - or aim for the enemy Raptors. 
  • If you don't have vision on a bush, drop an Event Horizon before entering. Dark Matter also grants vision.
  • Remember, your ult deals damage based on your enemy's missing health. Use it as the final component of your burst rotation.
