Teased in Riot Games' cinematic "Ruination," Viego's abilities were revealed to the community on Jan. 8. Viego's kit includes melee physical damage, a stun, and Camouflage ability. While fans can play him on live server on Jan. 21, they can check out PBE server to experience his gameplay. There are a couple of champions that can complement Viego's kits.
5 Best Champions to Pair With Viego in League of Legends
Here are five best champions to pair with Viego:
Utilizing Harrowed Path (E) before jumping into teamfight and targeting the carries with his other kits, Viego will benefit greatly from Lulu's Help, Pix! (E) and Wild Growth (R). Once the enemy carry is dead, Viego can make use his passive Sovereign's Domination to possess enemy champions. The combination of these two, if done correctly, spells out total destruction for the enemy team.
Almost the same concept as taking advantage of Lulu's knock-back and health bonus with Wild Growth (R), Galio instead will provide a knock-up and magic shield with his Hero's Entrance (R). If the targeted enemy carry has a CC or AOE damage, Viego can choose to possess them to get an ace on the enemy team.
In a way, Viego and Sylas have some similarities as they both have a dash/lunge, targeted CC, and enemy ability's steal. These two champions in teamfights will be one of the most frustrating things to face. It will be interesting to watch Sylas' Hijack (R) and Viego's Sovereign's Domination (passive) used at the same time.
These two can do well in skirmishes. With their relative mobilities, they can confuse the enemies with their positioning. In a teamfight, they may need a tank to soak up damage from the enemy while Viego and Samira execute them.
In order for the pair to unleash Veigo's power in a teamfight, Lissandra has to use all her kits, including her ultimate Frozen Tomb (R), followed by Zhonya Hourglass. Then Viego should come to clean up the stunned enemies by first executing the enemy with the lowest health, followed by his Heartbreaker (R) that will knock back surrounding enemies, further CC-ing them before finishing them off with his Blade of the Ruined King (Q).
