About the Author: Allorim
Hey guys, Allorim (In Game Name: PiX Allorim) here to bring you a guide for Volibear top lane! I've been playing LoL for around a year and a half now, starting back in late season 1. I was 2.3k elo in Season 2 and I'm working on getting it back in Season 3. I have never been part of a major team but I'm fairly known around the community as "that Volibear guy". Contact me in game with a friend invite and I'll be sure to answer any questions, it doesn't have to be guide related either so ask away anything you may need. I don't specifically play top lane so I can answer most things about any lane/role!
I also achieved rank #1 Volibear on Elobuff! (Not so recent anymore, I'm almost always at #1 spot now)
Here's a video of me playing Volibear in solo queue against TheOddOne/Reginald. (Excuse some of the stupid things going on, had some friends in skype) There are also many more videos of Volibear/others on my youtube channel!
Description and Role
Volibear is a tanky dps champion that should be focused more on being a damage dealer than as a beefy tank. Your goal in the game is to win/out farm your lane, protect your carries, and jump the enemy carry. Volibear has a kit that makes him not as easy to kite as other melee characters (that don't have a gap closer), your Q and E help a lot when you try and race to the enemy carry, zoning them out of the fight. With his passive and Spirit Visage he immediately becomes a Dr. Mundo 2.0 and at the time of your passive proc you are very tanky, especially if you build HP.
Though the northern reaches of Freljord are some of the most unforgiving lands in Valoran, the Ursine have survived upon the region's barren, stormy tundra for centuries. As a fierce and respected warrior of the Ursine, Volibear devoted his life to the protection of his people and loyalty to his elder brother, the tribe's chief. When his brother was killed during a hunt on the tundra, the tribe looked to Volibear as his successor. It was an honor and a burden that Volibear had never expected, but he shouldered the charge with pride. However, by Ursine tradition, the tribe could not recognize Volibear as chief until he returned from a journey to the peak of their sacred mountain, a place forever shrouded in a thundering maelstrom. There, Ursine chieftains must speak to the storm itself, gaining clarity and wisdom to empower them as mighty leaders.
Donning the chieftain's traditional armor and enchanted gauntlets, Volibear began the long and perilous climb up the slopes of the mountain. When he reached the peak and gazed into the raging storm above, he saw a horrific vision of a Freljord utterly consumed by war. Amidst the carnage, the Ursine fell dead upon a bloody battlefield. Believing the vision to be an omen of things to come if he did not act against them, Volibear traveled to the capital of Freljord. The Ursine had not ventured across the southern mountains in centuries and his appearance was met with unease. However, Queen Ashe recognized Volibear as a wise and powerful ally. In what Volibear considered the first step against a war-torn future, they forged an alliance. As part of their agreement, he joined the League of Legends in the name of a unified Freljord, representing the primal might of his nation on the Field of Justice.
