Best Veigar Counters in LoL

Anivia

Anivia is one of Veigar's strongest picks, and it will be interesting to see if she is still one of the best Veigar counters in League of Legends after the recent release of patch 14.8. Anivia is one of the best champions at punishing immobile champions, which Veigar is. He is one of the slower champions in League of Legends and has a hard time dodging crowd control. While Anivia doesn’t have great movement speed herself, her passive means she can fight more aggressively even if she is rather slow. You can use both your ultimate and your wall to slow down Veigar while also throwing out your Q to stun him. Anivia scales greatly into the late game and can match Veigar while having excellent wave clear.

Ekko

Ekko is an amazing counter to Veigar, as he can easily counter his abilities. Ekkos E can dash through Veigar's cage, his only defensive ability against Ekko. This means if you can be aggressive in the lane, he won’t be able to poke you down. Your ultimate is also a great bait tool, and you can force him to use his ultimate on you before using your ultimate to return to full health. This means Veigar has burned through his abilities while you can go back in for another fight. On top of that, Ekko is an amazing roamer who can get around the map quicker than Veigar can because he can hop small walls and has better movement speed.

Gragas

Gragas is one of the strongest champions in League of Legends right now, and a good Gragas player means you are all but confirmed the victory. Gragas can match up well against Veigar in this lane. His passive allows him to heal up even if he is getting poked. On top of that, once he gets his first couple of components in, he will be able to clear the wave just fine so don’t worry too much about losing some minions early on. As mentioned earlier, Veigar has very low mobility, so Gragas can easily punish this even if Veigar throws up his cage. Gragas’s abilities are activated much quicker than Veigars, so you shouldn’t have any trouble going in to burst him down.

Worst Champion To Pick Into Veigar In League of Legends

Right now in Emerald and above, Azir is objectively the worst champion to pick into Veigar in League of Legends. One of the obvious counters to Azir is Veigar’s E, which puts up a cage and stuns any champion that hits any side of the wall. This means whenever Azir looks to dash in, he can be stunned by the Veigar cage and burst down and killed. Veigars abilities allow him to farm safely at a distance without Azir being able to poke him down. If Azir gets too close, Veigar has the advantage as he can burst him down. Although Azir scales incredibly well in the late game, Veigar also has an insane amount of burst damage later on, thanks to his passive, which scales in AP every time he Q’s a minion or hits an enemy champion with his ability. Eventually, Veigar can just go for supportive items as he will naturally have close to 1,000 AP in every game.
