VOX GUIDE IS COMING Top

I had to unlock him with ICE and share my feedbacks with you, as I love snipers... !!

This is a first draft concerning those 4 builds, so not yet a finished product :D

4 builds for you : + 1 Weapon, + 2 crystals + 1 Hybrid

Choose one build according to the ennemies heroes and your style & gameplay !

My best for the moment is the one called "Crystal Sonar " build : I recommand it ! (1/4 build)

Update :
- Links to other guides added at the end
- how to build "invincible vox" added !(check build 5!) (DOUBLE INFUSIONS !! = +72 CP +35% CD acceleration + 60 armor + 60 shield + 72 WP + 25% Attack speed!!!!)

Table of Contents Top


Vox
Diffculty : All is about positioning again :D
Mobile Sniper with a high-energy playstyle, able to quickly and frequently dash around the battlefield. Vox deals significant damage either to a single target or to groups of enemies depending on his build. This flexibility allows Vox to react according to the needs of his team.

I know that you all wondering what's Julia's song ...
... here I found it for you :)

(loving The Beatles)

1- Boom into Vox ABILITIES Top

Julia's Song = Heroic Perk
Julia's Song
Slot: Heroic Perk

Vox's abilities mark enemies with Resonance. When basic attacking enemies with Resonance, bolts will bounce outwards to two nearby enemies dealing 20/60/80/100/140 (+90% crystal ratio) crystal damage and refreshing and spreading Resonance. (Resonance bounces deal 50% damage to minions.)

Very short range hero, that heroic perk is a must for him, as it gives him a shot HP barrier of 7 to 20 HP up to max 21-60 HP when auto-attacking. You won't be afraid to last-hit :)
Also allows his auto-attacks to flipper-bounce between all enemies affected by your Resonance that it will refresh, and also grant a barrier.
+50% of his crystal power as bonus damaage !
Sonic Zoom = A
Sonic Zoom
Slot: A

Vox dashes in the targeted direction, throwing two basic attacks to the nearest enemy marked by Resonance (prioritizing heroes).

This abilitie is a DASH, you can come across some walls (I've made this arrows on the map to help you know where you can do it); allows to chase and escape aswell.I have a preference with Bonesaw over Breaking Point in my weapon build because this item fits so much with Vox Sonic Zoom to shred the carry ennemie's armor!
Indeed, you can shot a combo of 4 shots = auto-Attack + A dash fires twice + last shot !!! and that shred the armor of the ennemie carry for the whole team : shred 12% per stack (max 5) during 6 sec. so with this combo : 12% armor shred * 4 insta-stacks = 48% of the armor shred in a sec!!!
(like Ringo's : the auto-attack cooldown resets by using abilitie)

Your ESCAPE Path is this :
You'll trigger Reflex Block when being ganked and then use both Sprint Boots Sonic Zoom to leave the fight.

PULSE = B
Pulse
Slot : B
Vox emits a Sonic Pulse that echoes off nearby enemies and applies Resonance. The pulse applies a slow that is significantly stronger near its center. Each upgrade to Pulse increases the damage Vox's basic & bouncing attacks deal to targets with Resonance.
This is pretty much a Sonar / RADAR that reveals the ennemy position by showing circle when pulse is crossing ennemies (creeps or heroes).
You won't be able to identify who is hiding, but even Taka under his box will be revealed!
Use it before FACE-CHECKING a bush !
Don't forget to use the SLOW wisely too :)
Apply RESONANCE with this skill, to deal damage bonus to the whole players affected. (very effective with crystal builds)
Max this at 5 when crystal builds to reach 125% of resonance damage bonus + 30% slow at center and 20% at edge, for a energy cost of 80 and a cooldown of 8.
Level 4 in same order : 80% / 26% / 16 % / 70 / 12
You can use Pulse while being stunned


Wait for it = C (Ultimate)
{$ability.display_name}
Slot: C

Vox fires an ultrasonic wave that applies Resonance to enemies in its path and refreshes all Resonance. Shortly after, a wide shockwave explodes along the same path, dealing crystal damage and silencing enemies. Striking enemy heroes with the shockwave will also cause Resonance to bounce.

This sniper can SILENCE like Catherine's Ultimate !!
It is a directionnal ultimate like his sister Celeste's one; Firstly trigger a shockwave that apply resonance on his path and then deals crystal and silence with a true waveball!
Energy cost is always 80. Silence duration is always 1.5 sec.
Cooldown between level 2 = 55 and level 3 = 30 !!!
Shockwave damage : +50% bonus of your crystal damage. 450 at level 2 ; 600 at level 3!!!!
MAX IT WHEN USING CRYSTAL BUILDS.

Crystal builds needs to max your B and C abilities !

2- Items Explanations Top


WEAPON WAVES BUILD
CRYSTAL SONAR BUILD
Max your A Sonic Zoom and B Pulse abilities and put your 6th and 12ve level into the Ultimate C. I always start with Pulse as first skill, because on the lane, you won't be outrange through your RESONANCE, then first max A, then B. Max B Pulse & C Wait for It abilities. Put points into A only when you are forced too. I always start with Pulse as first skill, because on the lane, you won't be outrange through your RESONANCE

MID-GAME
MID-GAME
Get Swift Shooter to build into Blazing Salvo this will go towards Bonesaw or Breaking Point. I have a preference with Bonesaw because this item fits so much with Vox Sonic Zoom to shred the carry ennemie's armor! Void Battery is possible to upgrade into either Eve of Harvest or Clockwork.
LATE GAME
LATE GAME
This is the part when you become deadly and shine the most :)
After that part, next step will be to choose between making even more weapon damage, wishing to be able to spam abilities, or building more defense item because they are all focusing you and your positionning skill isn't helpful enough
Now, you can build either build Shatterglass or Broken Myth if you need more damage or getting a Crystal Infusion if a teamfight for Kraken is preparing (MEDiC's TRICK!), or get more defense by upgrading your Reflex Block into either Crucible or Aegis
FINAL WP BUILD
FINAL CP BUILD
About the last item Fountain of Renewal, choose between another Crucible, Shiversteel, Tyrant's Monocle, Tornado Trigger, Clockwork or Aegis. Replace Shatterglass with Broken Myth if the other team builds Aegis or few Fountain of Renewal

His slow mobility makes it hard for him to roam and help his teammates : keep your eyes on minimap, follow your allies pings, and come into the jungle to help your teammates : you got much more mobility than saw!]Complicated matchup.

Use your resonance to reach him when you are on the lane. Hard hero to encounter tough. Don't fight him 1v1 in a long fight.

I recommand to take off Eve of Harvest and replace it by another defensive item. One clockwork is enough with aftershock too.
