Threat Hero Notes

  No Threat
2
Ardan Ardan is usually played as a tank, as long as you can kite with your higher move speed and Sonic Zoom, you can successfully wear your own father to death.
3
Adagio Adagio is a support hero, as long as you catch her before she can buff herself, you'll be fine.
3
SAW WP SAW seems powerful, but what NOBODY ever realizes is that if you were about to have a jungle team fight, it's necessary that you back off to make sure that SAW's Spin Up is gone. People engage while SAW has stacks, so they get shot down quickly by his attack speed. Sonic Zoom away if he has stacks, and engage when he starts walking faster. CP SAW's a different story.
4
Celeste Celeste's Heliogenesis is extremely effective at poking, but if you can keep in range of her and dodge her Core Collapse with Sonic Zoom, she shouldn't be able to do major damage. Feel free to get Shield if you feel pressured by a Celeste.
4
Joule Joule's stun is dealt with quite easily, as long as you can use your highly versitale Sonic Zoom to move out of position, you shouldn't get stunned. Work on your reflexes!
5
Catherine Catherine's stun usually always leads to a team fight, and if she aims for you, the best thing to do is back off until your tank starts soaking.
5
Krul Krul's stacks are quite annoying, but as long as you don't let him lay the stacks on you by creating a gap with Sonic Zoom and kiting you can get him to stop chasing.
5
Skaarf Skaarf needs clear space between him and you to land a Spitfire, so just Sonic Zoom out of it's way and you've countered perfectly, leaving him with 2 shots in his wide open mouth.
5
Vox Vox is a new hero, and for the first few weeks, most will take the recommended path for him, CP. Counter it by taking him when he's alone, WP Vox dominates v1 battles. Vox's Wait for It... can be avoided by Sonic Zoom-ing away when you see the initial warning line.
6
Glaive Glaive's Afterburn is terrible for Vox, as he has low base health and short range. If you see Glaive flinging towards you, try to Sonic Zoom to the opposite side of him.
7
Petal Petal's munions are easy pickings early game with Resonance, but late game she can become a nuisance if taking a crystal path. However, her Spontaneous Combustion is dodgeable with a skillful timing of Sonic Zoom, so don't waste your sprint if you don't have to.
8
Ringo WP Ringo is a bad matchup on Vox. Until you have gathered enough WP to fight back effectively, try to avoid standoffs with him. You may think you're winning, but remember that Twirling Silver resets basic attack cooldown.
9
Koshka Koshka's chasing is a prick in da booty, so try to avoid direct confrontation unless your team is with you. If you're confident, bursting her down with an immediate Wait for It... and Sonic Zoom combo is a good way to catch her by surprise.
9
Taka Assassins in general are bad news for squishes like Vox, but luckily, Pulse reveals enemy positions around you, even in bushes. Use this to your advantage. when in lane, and Taka jumps out to you, Sonic Zoom back into turret range, if close enough. It's a common trick with Takas to X-Retsu - Kaiten combo, so by stepping back after the X-Retsu, his Kaiten throws him right into the turret's shot.

A Little about me... Top

Hi, I'm Kaihara. I'm a VG player in the Gold "Pretty Good" tier. I can play any character other than Ardan and Adagio. I'm no pro when it comes to writing like this, so bear with my boring font. I bought Vox, and I'm loving him. I came up with this build when I was listening to one of the Vox preview streams, and they said "WP Vox is good for single target damage." As great as multiple target damage is, I just didn't find Vox's CP unreliant skills effective for my play style. You can still do multi-target damage, but devastate even the bulkiest of tanks.

Battle Strats Top

This build is glass cannon styled, and be sure to pick up a defense item if you are dying often. If your team decides to go all WP, the smart enemy would get Armor. Buy a Bonesaw and do your whole team a favor with armor shred. Don't be worried about the build, if you find that something works better for you, such as Breaking Point, feel free to switch it out with something. (If you did want Breaking Point, I recommend switching with Tyrant's Monocle, both having Crit DMG and Chance buffs.) Please do remember that Crystal and Weapon Infusions can now be purchased and instantly used, along with any other consumables. Don't have to sell an item to make room and buy it back for twice what you sold it for.

Early Game Top

As a WP Vox, buy a Weapon Blade with 2 pots at the start of the match. If there is a massive farm **** laning with you like SAW, you might need to consider an Ironguard Contract to share in the gold with these people. Vox can't be too aggressive because of his range, most of your poke and intimidation will rely on counter. When the enemy overextends to last-hit a minion or try to harass, it's your time to shine. you can go up, down, or back, but going forward would put you in a position for a gank, and makes it harder to run. You're trying to poke, not have a showdown with your pathetic 65 or so attack. Scout traps are great, but your Pulse detects enemies quite well. Use it to inspect bushes and secure your path in jungle. When running, don't be fooled by the teleport-like qualities of Sonic Zoom. Don't be like me on my first game, in front of my base's wall and Sonic Zoom-ing only to stop in front of the wall and die. Talk about embarrassing!

Mid Game Top

Keep on stacking your WP, and secure a Sorrowblade whenever possible. Get a Blazing Salvo on top of that, and that SAW will wonder where his money went! Try to stay in the back of fights, and use Sonic Zoom to step back when being locked down. Don't underestimate the power of Wait for It... on base damage! with a short cooldown and momentary silence, It can turn the tide of battle. Make sure you read the next move of the enemy so they dont walk out of it's blast. Your ult also only needs you to fire the initial mark shot, so don't be afraid to throw it out and immediately follow up with shots. (Reference in Hero Spotlight) Since this is WP, don't get too cocky and go alone. If you're gang banged by the enemy team, you won't last with focused single-target damage.

End Game Top

In the end, Vox gets lots of farm. In all of the full-length matches I played, I got at least 9000 gold total. Which is nearly enough to complete the entire build. In team fights, if your teammates die, assess the situation before running on instinct. If the enemy is low, your Resonance applied by Sonic Zoom still does some damage, and Wait for It... takes out nearly 1/2 the health of a Koshka(no defense) so don't blindly charge out of battle, you have high damage output. And of course, as mentioned above, Please make sure you have a bonesaw on enemies with high defense stats before spitting curses on my soul because you deal low damage on enemies. Also, since Wait for It... has low cooldown, feel free to line up your shot on both of the inner base turrets to do over 300 damage on each turret if you are aced. Seems like a waste, but what else do you do with 20 seconds?

A perfect example of why you should get defense as soon as you feel pressured by enemy team. I left myself open for a good 4-5 kills.I couldn't press both buttons to snapshot because of the case I had on, so i went to my home screen. I went back in and took the picture as fast as I could...What happens when you retaliate and counter-build as soon as you start to die easily, keeping your sustain in battle much higher.Weak enemies, enemy deserted, but for the sake of consistency this WAS in fact 4 straight games in a row.more
