Sovereign's Domination

Viego Sovereign's Domination 2.png

Innate: Whenever an enemy Champion icon.png champion is killed by Viego or dies within 3 seconds of being damaged by him, a Mist Wraith of that champion spawns from their corpse for 8 seconds. Viego can basic attack a champion's Mist Wraith to possess it, Heal power icon.png heal himself for 3% (+ 3% per 100 bonus AD) (+ 2% per 100 AP) (+ 5% per 100% bonus attack speed) of the target's maximum health, and Flash.png blink to its location after winding up for 1 second, during which he is Fizz Playful.png untargetable (except to Turret icon.png turrets).

Viego Sovereign's Domination.png

Possession lasts for 10 seconds and replaces Viego's basic attacks, basic abilities, items, base stats (based on Viego's level), and appearance with the champion the Mist Wraith was summoned by. Viego also gains a free cast of Heartbreaker Heartbreaker, which is initially placed on a 1.5-second Cooldown reduction icon.png cooldown, and Movement speed icon.png 10% bonus movement speed while moving toward enemy champions within 2500 units during this time.

Viego cannot use item actives, consumable items, nor the shop while under possession. Casting Heartbreaker Heartbreaker or attacking a Mist Wraith ends possession prematurely.

Viego will preserve his current health percentage between transformations.

 
   "You will serve!"

Info
  • Viego will copy the possessed champion's ability ranks.
    • Viego cannot level up their abilities with his available skill points.
  • While winding up on a Mist Wraith, Viego is unable to move, basic attack, or cast his abilities, but he can still use some item actives and summoner spells.
    • The wind up can only be interrupted by Death.png death.
  • Mist Wraiths will not expire while Viego is winding up on them.
  • Viego gains the bonus movement speed during possession even while moving towards nearby enemy champions that are Fizz Playful.png untargetable.
  • Finishing the possessing attack against a Mist Wraith kills it, rewarding Viego an extra 3 Gold 3 as he becomes the target champion.
  • The wind up's Fizz Playful.png untargetability does not Bullet strikethrough.png destroy in-flight Projectile.png projectiles from Turret icon.png turrets.
  • The possessed champion's abilities do not cost any Mana resource.png mana or Energy resource.png energy even if that specific champion normally uses either as a casting resource.
  • The current cooldowns of Viego's and the possessed champion's abilities will not be reset between transformations. They will continue ticking down in the background.
  • The passive cooldowns of items are shared between Viego's and the possessed champion's.
  • Once possession ends, Viego returns to his normal state and certain effects gained from the possessed champion's abilities will be immediately removed.
  • Viego retains his own summoner spells, trinket item, and runes during possession.
  • Mist Wraiths will not spawn while Viego is dead.
  • Sovereign's Domination will not summon a Mist Wraith from Shaco Command- Hallucinate.png clones.
  • The possession will not expire while Viego is in a Yorick Omen of Death.png zombie state.
  • The possession will not end prematurely if Viego enters Revival icon.png resurrection.
  • The possession will acquire the basic abilities of shapeshifting champions (e.g. Elise's Elise's Spider Form / Human Form Spider Form / Human Form, Jayce's Jayce's Transform Mercury Cannon Transform Mercury Cannon / Transform Mercury Hammer Transform Mercury Hammer, and Nidalee's Nidalee's Aspect of the Cougar Aspect of the Cougar) based on which form they died as.
  • Mist Wraiths are considered Shaco Command- Hallucinate.png clones and can only be targeted by Viego.
  • If Viego possesses an enemy champion who owns Dark Seal Dark Seal or Mejai's Soulstealer Mejai's Soulstealer, he will gain their Glory stacks for the possession.
  • As Cull Cull tracks its progress for each player even if they do not possess the item at the time, Viego may discharge stacks for the benefit of 1 Gold 1 each per Minion icon.png minion kill, and if Viego killed 100 minions possessing Cull Cull, no matter whether bought himself or acquired via a possessed champion's inventory, he receives the 350 Gold 350 payout and can no longer discharge stacks.
    • This entire interaction does not interact with the state of the Cull Cull stacks of the enemy.
    • The stacks shown on the item in the inventory and scoreboard may not update properly, however.
  • If Viego possesses an enemy champion who owns Relic Shield Relic Shield, Steel Shoulderguards Steel Shoulderguards, Spellthief's Edge Spellthief's Edge, or Spectral Sickle Spectral Sickle, the gold gained from using any one of the items will also count towards Viego's own Quest.
  • If Viego possesses an enemy champion who owns Tear of the Goddess Tear of the Goddess, the stacks it has will be transferred to his Tear of the Goddess Tear of the Goddess if he owns one.

Blade of the Ruined King

Passive: Viego's basic attacks deal bonus physical damage On-hit icon.png on-hit. The bonus damage has a minimum threshold and is capped at 80 against Monster icon.png monsters.

Bonus Physical Damage:
2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6% of target's current health
Minimum Bonus Damage:
10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30

Additionally, damaging abilities apply a mark to enemies for 4 seconds. Viego's next basic attack against a marked target consumes the mark to strike twice, with the second strike dealing 20% AD (+ 15% AP) physical damage and Heal power icon.png healing him for 150% of the post-mitigation damage dealt, increased to 155% against monsters and reduced to 10% against Minion icon.png minions.

The second strike can Critical strike icon.png critically strike for 35% (+Infinity Edge item.png 7%) AD (+ 26.25% (+Infinity Edge item.png 5.25%) AP) physical damage and applies On-hit icon.png on-hit effects at 100% effectiveness.

Viego Blade of the Ruined King.png

Active: Viego thrusts his blade in the target direction, dealing physical damage to enemies hit, increased by 0% − 100% (based on critical strike chance), and 20 bonus physical damage against monsters.

Physical Damage:
15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 (+ 70% AD)
 × (1 + (100% + 0% 0%) critical strike chance)
Physical Damage to Monsters:
15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 (+ 70% AD)
 × (1 + (100% + 0% 0%) critical strike chance)  +  20

Blade of the Ruined King's passive remains under possession possession, and while transformed, the second strike is instead converted to bonus damage on-hit which no longer applies on-hit effects but can still Critical strike icon.png critically strike (based on possessed stats).

Info
  • The mark will not be applied to the primary target struck by Heartbreaker Heartbreaker, but it can triggered from it.
  • Blade of the Ruined King's cast time is always 140% of the caster's attack windup time.
    • At base attack speed, Viego's attack windup is 0.25 seconds.
    • An easy formula to calculate the cast time is [ 0.23 seconds divided by total attack speed ].
    • Reducing Viego's attack speed via Cripple icon.png attack speed reductions also increases Blade of the Ruined King's cast time by the same fraction.
    • It is calculated from Viego's total attack speed after cap (2.5) and floor (0.2), making the maximum possible cast time 1.155 seconds.
    • Blade of the Ruined King's cast time becomes the same as the standard 0.264 seconds cast time for most abilities at 32.6% bonus attack speed.
  • Applies Katarina Death Lotus.png area damage for the thrust and Wit's End item.png proc damage for the bonus damage on-hit and second strike.
  • Blade of the Ruined King strikes from Viego's location at the end of the cast time.
  • Viego will not perform the second strike if the first attack was Jax Counter Strike.png dodged, Shen Spirit's Refuge.png blocked, and Blind icon.png missed.
  • The second strike rolls Critical strike icon.png critical strike independently from the triggering attack.
  • If the second strike hits a dead unit, Viego will still Heal power icon.png heal based on the post-mitigation damage that he would deal with it.

Spectral Maw

Viego Spectral Maw.png

Active: Viego Channeling icon.png charges while being Slow icon.png slowed by 10% for up to 3 seconds to increase Spectral Maw's mist missile Range icon.png range and Stun icon.png stun duration over the first second of the channel. Spectral Maw can be recast at any time within its duration.

If the charge completes without reactivation, Spectral Maw is canceled and goes on full cooldown.

Recast: Viego hurls a blast of mist in the target direction and Dash.png dashes a fixed distance in the same direction, though not through terrain. The mist deals magic damage to the first enemy struck and Stun icon.png stuns them for 0.25 − 1.25 (based on channel time) seconds.

Magic Damage:
80 / 135 / 190 / 245 / 300 (+ 100% AP)

If the charge is Silence icon.png interrupted, Spectral Maw resumes a reduced 3-second static
Cooldown reduction icon.png cooldown.

Spectral Maw Fiora Bladework.png resets Viego's basic attack timer.

Viego can cast any of his abilities while Dash.png dashing.

    Harrowed Path

    Viego Harrowed Path.png

    Active: Viego sends a spectre in the target direction that creates a trail of mist along its path which lasts 8 seconds. The mist spreads around the first instance of terrain encountered.

    Viego Harrowed Path 2.png

    While inside the mist, Viego gains Attack speed icon.png bonus attack speed and, if he is not attacking or casting, he becomes Twitch Ambush 2.png camouflaged and gains Movement speed icon.png bonus movement speed.

    Bonus Attack Speed:
    30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50%
    Bonus Movement Speed:
    25 / 27.5 / 30 / 32.5 / 35% (+ 4% per 100 AP)

    Declaring a basic attack or casting an ability will break the camouflage and remove the bonus movement speed, preventing Viego from gaining them again for 1 second, reduced to 0.6 seconds if he recasted Spectral Maw Spectral Maw and increased to 2 seconds if he attacked a Monster icon.png monster. This duration refreshes on subsequent attacks and ability casts.

    Harrowed Path can be cast during any of Viego's abilities.

    Info
    • The bonus movement speed and camouflage are granted by the same buff.
    • Viego will enter camouflage even while Recalling Recalling.
    • Viego can cast Harrowed Path during the cast time of any ability or spell.
    • Ranking up Harrowed Path while the effect is already active will still immediately improve the bonuses it grants.
    • Harrowed Path can interact with player-generated terrain.

    Edit

    Heartbreaker

    Viego Heartbreaker.png

    Active: Viego discards his current possession possession if he has one and gains Unstoppable icon.png displacement immunity over the cast time, then Flash.png blinks to the target location.

    Upon arrival, Viego creates a blast that deals 120% AD physical damage to all nearby enemies, increased by 0% − 100% (based on critical strike chance), and Airborne icon.png knocks back all but one up-to 400 units away based on proximity, though not through terrain.

    The most wounded enemy champion, alternatively the closest one, is not knocked back and instead takes the blow from Viego's blade, which deals bonus physical damage, Slow icon.png slows them by 99% for 0.25 seconds, and applies On-hit icon.png on-hit effects at 100% effectiveness.

    Bonus Physical Damage:
    15 / 20 / 25% (+ 3% per 100 bonus AD) of target's missing health

    If a possession possession is discarded, Heartbreaker will be placed on a 1.5-second cooldown if it is not already on cooldown.

     
       "Isolde!"

    Info
    • Heartbreaker will cast at the edge of its range if the target location is further beyond.
    • Heartbreaker will cast at maximum range from the end of Spectral Maw's Spectral Maw's dash if it is cast during the dash.
    • The knockback speed is 1000 units per second. The airborne is removed as soon as the displacement ends.
      • The maximum airborne duration is therefore 0.4 seconds. The minimum is 0.1 seconds.
    • Applies Annie Disintegrate.png spell damage to the struck champion and Katarina Death Lotus.png area damage to all other enemies.
    • Viego will enter a 0.25-second cast time if he strikes an enemy champion.
    • Heartbreaker's strike to the champion can be Jax Counter Strike.png dodged and Shen Spirit's Refuge.png blocked, but not Blind icon.png missed.
    • Viego will be ordered to basic attack the primary target afterwards.
