Introduction

YOU’RE READING THIS VOLIBEAR GUIDE, MY WAY. VOLIBEAR IS THE BEST JUNGLER, TOP LANER, AND SUPPORT IN THE GAME. LOOK AT THIS CRAZY BEAR! DROPPING BOMBS ON THOSE ENEMIES. BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! THAT’S REAL LIGHTNING THERE! OF COURSE, WE ALL KNOW HE’S NOT AS GOOD AS THE ‘DYR BUT HOW ELSE ARE YOU GOING TO BE ABLE TO TOWER DIVE AT LEVEL 3 AND SURVIVE? HOW ELSE WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO LOCK AN ENEMY IN PLACE WHILE YOU POUND ON THEM WITH YOUR ULTIMATE? WHAT OTHER CHAMPION LETS YOU EXECUTE SOMEONE BASED ON YOUR HEALTH?

Volibear is a tanky fighter who has very strong base stats, but falls off late game. He excels in early game skirmishes.

In order to stop Volibear from soloing your entire team after getting 7 kills in laning phase, you need to know what weaknesses he has and how to exploit his cheese. In this guide, I’ll be helping you send this bear back to the Freljord.

Abilities

Passive – Chosen of the Storm

When below 30% health, Volibear gains a huge heal.

Q – Infected Cleaver

Volibear gains attack speed on each auto attack. After 3 auto attacks, he gains the ability to cast Frenzy, which deals more damage the less health the enemy has.

E – Masochism

Volibear roars, dealing damage to all enemies nearby and slowing champions but fearing all minions and monsters.

R – Sadism

R – Thunder Claws

Volibear’s basic attacks start spreading lightning to all nearby enemies, dealing damage.

Our Top Counter Tips For Volibear
