Champion: Viego, The Ruined King
Viego, The Ruined King, is one of the newest champions in League of Legends. He has balanced stats good for early jungle and team fights. Viego can possess enemy champions that can help turn the tide of the battle. Viego has the potential to make it to the meta lineups. He has a well-balanced ability and good mobility. Here's a rundown of Viego's ability.
Sovereign's Domination (PASSIVE SKILL)
Viego’s passive is called sovereigns domination which allows him to possess enemy champions for a certain period of time. The enemy champion affected by Viego’s possession grants them extra hp heal in return. Viego gets the items, attacks, and all champion skills and abilities for a certain amount of time (ULTIMATE SKILL NOT INCLUDED). In Addition, Viego gains a free cast of his ultimate skill and gains movement speed when moving towards the enemy unit while he possesses them.
Blade of the Ruined King (1st skill=Q)
If you're a league of legends player, you have probably used Blade of the Ruined King, a good siphon item depending on the situation, an item once now turned into a powerful kit for Viego. Blade of the Ruined King is the first skill of Viego that deals passive damage to the target's current health as bonus damage. When an enemy champion/unit is hit by an ability/skill, Viego’s skill will hit the target twice. The first strike of any skill will deal normal damage, and the second strike will deal damage and siphon enemies' health.
Spectral Maw (2nd skill=W)
Viego charges up and unleashes a mid-range dash forward the enemy unit, then Viego casts a blast of mist that can stun and damage the first enemy unit hit. The stun duration and range will increase the charge time of the spectral maw. Damage and range won't be affected.
Harrowed Path (3rd skill=E)
When Viego casts Harrowed’s path, he creates a wave of black mist on a nearby wall. Standing near or inside the fog will make him camouflage and give him extra attack speed and movement speed.
When Viego casts his Ultimate skill heartbreaker that can possess an enemy unit, he can instantly teleport forward, attacking the enemy champion with the lowest health points as long as he's on the range. Viego then deals bonus damage based on the champion missing health points. Other enemies that aren't affected by the bonus damage are only knocked away.
Viego is a utility hero good for jungling and team fights. However, he is squishy but has good mobility.
