Vel&#039;Koz Vel'Koz has come to Runeterra. Witness the first moments as he makes his way to the Fields of Justice.

Vel'Koz, the Eye of the Void, revealed

By sixtwo [3]

The Void is preparing to spill forth its latest monstrosity: Vel&#039;Koz Vel'Koz. A terrifying being created for the sole purpose of learning, Vel'Koz absorbs knowledge and accrues understanding through a multitude of tests and scans. Unfortunately, those very tests, while extremely productive for Vel'Koz, have a tendency to utterly destroy his subjects.


Organic Deconstruction
Organic Deconstruction

Vel'Koz's abilities Deconstruct those they strike. After being hit three times by his abilities, minions, monsters and enemy champions are Deconstructed and suffer bonus true damage. Enemies lose their Deconstruction stacks by avoiding Vel'Koz's attacks for a short while.

Plasma Fission
Plasma Fission

Vel'Koz fires a plasma bolt that Slow icon slows and damages the first enemy struck. Once Plasma Fission hits, reaches its maximum range or is Plasma Fission 2.png reactivated a second time, the bolt splits at a 90 degree angle. The split bolts deal the same damage and apply the same Slow icon slow.

Void Rift
Void Rift

Vel'Koz sends out a straight line blast that tears open a temporary rift to the Void before exploding. Both the initial tear and the delayed explosion damage apply Organic Deconstruction.png Deconstruction stacks to caught enemies.

Tectonic Disruption
Tectonic Disruption

After a brief delay Vel'Koz disrupts a nearby area, damaging and Stun icon launching all enemies caught into the air. Enemies hit that are close to Vel'Koz are also Airborne icon knocked back slightly.

Life Form Disintegration Ray
Life Form Disintegration Ray

Vel'Koz channels a ray of infinite energy that follows the cursor for a brief while, damaging, Slow icon slowing, and Organic Deconstruction.png Deconstructing all enemies in range.


Vel'Koz is a ranged mage born to blast out overwhelming damage over sustained fights. With long-range harass available from the start of the game, Vel'Koz is a fragile but threatening early presence who relies on his teammates' protection to bring his full force to bear come late game.

Mid lane

Vel'Koz is a creature of raw power, not speed, and as such carries out his finest research on the mid lane of Summoner's Rift. The towers here are placed closer together, giving the Eye of the Void less distance to travel when enemy junglers dare get between him and his research subjects. A short autoattack range means Vel'Koz is often in the thick of the fighting, but he has the necessary tools in his abilities to dissuade his lane opponent from engaging. Enemy midlaners within their own minion waves are vulnerable to poke through Void Rift.png Void Rift, while opponents caught in the open make easy targets for Plasma Fission.png Plasma Fission. Using abilities frequently benefits Vel'Koz: fully stacking Organic Deconstruction.png Organic Deconstruction against his opposing laner deals substantial true damage, forcing his counterpart to choose between moving in to secure minion gold or retreating until their Organic Deconstruction.png Deconstruction stacks have dissipated. Aggressive enemies risk a quick death once Vel'Koz catches them with further rounds of Void Rift.png Void Rift followed by Tectonic Disruption.png Tectonic Disruption, while those that flee are still subject to considerable ranged harass. With clever aiming and timing of Plasma Fission 2.png Plasma Fission's second cast, Vel'Koz can both steer his ability around enemy minions and gain additional range through geometric finesse.

Vel'Koz becomes an entirely different beast once he gains access to Life Form Disintegration Ray.png Life Form Disintegration Ray. His Life Form Disintegration Ray.png ult deals devastating amounts of damage to all enemies caught, but its long channel time and slow turn speed makes initial positioning absolutely paramount. Because of this, Vel'Koz does best bringing his Life Form Disintegration Ray.png ult to bear following a few successful rounds of poke, after his opponents are sufficiently researched with Organic Deconstruction.png Organic Deconstruction and wounded enough to keep their distance. Even the minion cover often granted by distance is ignored by Life Form Disintegration Ray.png Life Form Disintegration Ray's absolute power, which fully affects all enemies within its substantial range.


As teams start skirmishing around Summoner's Rift, Vel'Koz is safest positioning himself within or behind his allies, harassing his enemies with repeated casts of Plasma Fission.png Plasma Fission and Tectonic Disruption.png Tectonic Disruption. When caught in unfavorable positions, Vel'Koz fires off Plasma Fission.png Plasma Fission while retreating to kite his pursuers and positions Void Rift.png Void Rift in choke points to dissuade enemies from following further. In favorable situations, Vel'Koz uses the same ability to separate his subject from its pack before unleashing Tectonic Disruption.png Tectonic Disruption and Plasma Fission.png Plasma Fission to quickly catch and dispatch them.

In full-scale teamfights, Vel'Koz again works best from the back line, tossing out damage and crowd control with Plasma Fission.png Plasma Fission as he builds Organic Deconstruction.png Deconstruction stacks on his enemies. Allied protection is key here as enemy bruisers, once they get to Vel'Koz, make short work of the tentacled glass cannon. Still, Vel'Koz has a few tricks of his own to ensure his safety: Plasma Fission.png Plasma Fission makes for an excellent kiting tool, while the combined knock back and knock up from Tectonic Disruption.png Tectonic Disruption allows Vel'Koz to reposition away from danger. Finally, once enough enemies are primed from his harass, once his team has set up a safe area for Vel'Koz to channel in, the Eye of the Void unleashes Life Form Disintegration Ray.png Life Form Disintegration Ray to melt through the massed enemy ranks and leave his foes staggering under sheer, overwhelming damage.

Mid-Season Magic

Vel&#039;Koz Vel'Koz is the monster of choice when you need long-range poke damage or... a true-damage laser Life Form Disintegration Ray.png beam! Melt their frontline, then obliterate their backline. [4]

Organic Deconstruction
Organic Deconstruction

Vel'Koz's spells build Organic Deconstruction stacks on enemies. The third spell hit consumes the stacks and deals bonus true damage. This true damage scales with level and ability power.

Plasma Fission
Plasma Fission

Vel'Koz shoots a bolt of plasma that splits in two on Plasma Fission 2.png reactivation or upon hitting an enemy. The bolt Slow icon slows and deals magic damage on hit. Plasma Fission refunds half its mana cost if it kills a unit, and the target indicator now only displays for Vel'Koz.

Void Rift
Void Rift

Vel'Koz opens a rift to the void that deals an initial burst of magic damage, then explodes for a second burst of damage after a delay.

Tectonic Disruption
Tectonic Disruption

Vel'Koz causes an area to explode, Stun icon knocking up enemies, and Airborne icon knocking close enemies slightly away.

Lifeform Disintegration Ray
Life Form Disintegration Ray

Vel'Koz unleashes a channeled beam that follows the cursor for 2.5 seconds that deals damage and Slow icon slows enemies. All enemies that are Organic Deconstruction.png deconstructed become Researched.png Researched. Lifeform Disintegration Ray deals true damage to Researched.png Researched champions, but no longer Organic Deconstruction.png deconstructs enemies.
