Threat Hero Notes
0
Kensei Don't worry about him, he gets banned all the time anyways. If you're going blind mode, let him wp jungle for your team and go cp carry. If for some reason you're up against him as Vox, get metal jacket after poisoned shiv. That's vox's only hope.
1
Adagio Adagio is a healer, poisoned shiv's passive shuts him down hard.
2
Celeste Vox's sister is easily dealt with midgame, but watch out for a stun-ult combo in late game. Reflex-blocking the stun will stop her from bursting Vox down.
2
Fortress Kite this doggo. Free Breaking Point stacks! Avoid getting caught out by him and his team.
2
Varya Easy to trade with her, easy to dodge her a, easy to win. Her glory days are long over.
3
Ardan Ardan is not too difficult of a roamer to deal with by yourself, but when he uses his barrier on an opponent, it can get messy. Make sure to trade if he tries to bully you out of lane, it can be a good idea to reflex his ult.
3
Flicker Good vision in your tri-bush stops him, as well as in the center of the Vainglory Logo in the middle of the lane. If all else fails, sonic zoom out of fairy dust.
3
Joule Block A, sonic zoom dodge B, build BP, win. She's out of the meta for a reason.
3
Krul Kite the undead warrior into oblivion. He'll thank uou for finally giving him peace. Watch out for ult and keep good vision.
3
Lyra Can trap you easier than adagio, but same concept. Land mortal wounds and win.
3
Petal The one hero I would recommend CP Vox for. Still burstable on wp, play it safe until you have two t3 items, then you can fight her.
3
Phinn Free Bp stacks, if somehow Phinn leads the charge. Block or dodge the quibble after he ults.
3
Reim Laugh at him as you kite him to death. Sonic zoom dodge A, reflex ult. Ez.
3
Skaarf Like Samuel, dodge at an angle towards him and trade. His threat is so low because you shouldn't get hit by spitfire.
4
Baron Baron isn't the meta-defining force he once was, but if he gets ahead in items, he can snowball. Trade with him after you get poisoned shiv.
4
Catherine A smart Catherine can use her bubble against you and send back some damage off a crit. Be wary of this. Echo Cath is also annoying, be ready to reflex block.
4
Koshka Make it to the late game, block ult and get your bp stacks. Koshka is a burden to her team unless you miss the block on ult.
4
Lorelai Moving around makes her skill-shots difficult to land. Watch out for her using ult on her jungler.
4
Ozo Block ult and land mortal wounds on him, he will be easy to deal with. Watch out for third bounce.
5
Baptiste If Baptiste gets close enough, he can be hard to deal with. Reflexing his Ordained is generally a good idea so he cannot land an empowered Bad Mojo on Vox. One thing I see all the time is players walking into the wall of Ordained. This is a bad idea! Just wait for the wall to go away, then run/kite. This is also a good time to build breaking point stacks.
5
Glaive Good vision shuts down Glaive, and blocking aftershock is also helpful. Vision helps block it too. Build up BP (breaking point) and win.
5
Grumpjaw Block the A, build up BP, Win. If you miss the A block or if he atlases you, it gets a lot more difficult. If you can block atlas pauldron, by all means block that. It is way more beneficial to block.
5
Kestrel Easy to dodge arrows and then trade. Watch out for wp, which doesn't always have to land glimmershot.
5
Lance Generally easy to deal with, but a lance main can roast you if you don't predict his B ability. Be ready for an impale.
5
Ringo Vox is just...better. In every way. You should have no problem beating him late game (unless he has an item advantage).
5
Rona Not too hard to beat, sonic zoom after her a ability and land some free basic attacks. Get her to a point where she is low enough to engage.
5
Skye Same as Samuel and Skaarf. Weapon might be able to trade with you if they have an item advantage.
5
Vox Don't have much to say here. Could be easiest or scariest hero to deal with, it all depends on who has better mechanics. You beat him head-to-head if he's cp tho.
6
Blackfeather Wp Blackfeather is hard to deal with in midgame, but if you make it to the late game, you can easily trade blows with him. Probably not best to fight until you have breaking point.
6
Churnwalker Smart Churnwalkers can destroy Vox if they have team coordination. Best counter is probably to have vision. Knowing where he is and if he'll chain you is vital, as blocking his ult is quite difficult.
6
SAW Can be hard 1v1, but just pick stuns. Call up a team member and win. You don't really have to kite him ever.
6
Taka Smart takas will take advantage of you if you don't have vision. Once you get your first monocle, don't be afraid to fight him. Let him engage, then surprise him with a burst of damage. You should be able to win that first monocle fight. Until then, trade a little, but be cautious when he gets his aftershock. Get your items, then fight him. Use vision to track him down as he runs away!
7
Alpha Alpha is a nuisance to Vox in the early to mid-game after she gets level two. It's best not to pick a fight with her until Vox gets his first monocle.
7
Gwen Can be a tough matchup once she gets tension bow. Best thing to do is have a jungler that can solo jungle and have someone babysit lane until Vox gets items.
7
Idris Vox wins WP, kite and trade. CP forces you to save sonic zoom to dodge Chakram, and an Idris main will know how to maximize basic attacks to harass you. Get a tank like ardan to counter-harass
7
Samuel Good samuels are always annoying, and will generally land one of two malice and verdicts. Dodge at an angle towards him when he is not in drifting dark and has no allies nearby. Trade, then win the fight.
7
Tony Watch out for his early game after tension bow/sorrowblade. If you're alone in lane, you probably won't win early game. Late game, kiting is essential.
8
Grace Grace is imo the best roam in the game. She has the best matchup against Vox for a roamer, able to slow him and instantly atlas pauldron simultaneously. A good Grace can pull this off easily. Best initiator, great support, and a really good tank. Be wary of her, best not to pick into grace.
8
Malene I don't have much experience against Malene, but she is scary in the right hands. Really slippery and can definitely outplay you if it comes down to 1v1. Be careful, definitely dangerous.
9
Reza The single biggest threat to vox. Really strong with aftershock right now, and if vox isn't prepared, vox is dead. His strongest point is your weakest. Be very, VERY cautious until late game.

Introduction Top

Hi! I'm Mgoblue1, I'm tier 7 bronze on the NA server, and I main Vox. These are my observations of Vox from tiers 4-6. These probably won't work as well as other builds in higher tiers, as this is a crit build meant for players who haven't perfected kiting and stutter-stepping. As one advances in tiers, sustain builds tend to turn out better, as players have gotten really good at trading whenever anyone steps inside their zone. Once again, only T7 bronze, but these are my observations.

Vox Intro
Vox is a ranged sniper, capable of bursting down a single enemy with breaking point or sustaining for years depending on one's build path. In my opinion, Vox makes the best use of kiting, even more than Ringo. Kiting is the single most necessary mechanic needed to excel with this build. Reflex Blocking is second.

Why play Vox?
Vox is increasingly more useful than Ringo as tiers progress and support mains become better and better. Ringo does not require as much support as Vox in the lower tiers, and Vox reaches a higher point than Ringo does with good support and mechanics in T4-10. Vox is, simply put, a stronger pick 90% of the time. These two heroes are the most similar wp laners, and Vox has a better matchup in most of their bad matchups. The only exceptions are heroes without skillshots, like Tony or Krul. Vox is better at dodging most skillshots.

Build for Vox, Allies that work well, and Mechanics. Top

Vox should always go poisoned shiv, no matter what. I have never built anything before poisoned shiv, it is ESSENTIAL to this build. Depending on whether you need to kite more or not, build bp or tm (tyrant's monocle). Bp if you need to kite, tm if not. After your second T3 Item, buy boots then reflex block. Reflex blocking is crucial to this build so you don't get stun-chained and killed. Then move into your tyrants monocles, the crit is what allows vox to burst down his enemies. Mix in some T2 Boots with it, then work on utility. I recommend Halcyon Chargers and Aegis. If your roam is really bad at blocks, you could build crucible, but it's a niche pick. Chargers are because you are definitely running out of energy, they keep you in (or out) of the fight longer. Don't forget a weapon infusion, you can get this earlier if you're struggling.

Who works well with Vox?
Roamers: Grace, Ardan
Junglers: Fortress, Koshka, Krul

Grace can heal Vox as he goes on a rampage, and let him build up bp for little in return.
*SIDE NOTE* Lorelai is a really good jungler, but is mostly played as roam. She can barrier vox as grace heals to create an unstoppable beast. (Grace would be roam in this situation.) If you have a few willing friends, try this out. It's really fun!
Ardan can trap enemies in his gauntlet for vox to kill and build up bp. Defensive gauntlets allow Vox to kite out of the gauntlet and stun opponents trying to pick up a kill.

Fortress is a niche pick for a jungler, but Cp cooldown hybrid fortress allows Vox to engage and disengage
with ease. Communication necessary.

Koshka can lock down a single target for Vox to build up bp stacks, and krul can do the same. This is done using their *stunning* ultimates.

Mechanics
I've mentioned breaking point a lot in this guide, because it is just as vital as poisoned shiv sustain is. The Bp is what lets vox stack up enough damage to burst down a hero. The monocles just capitalize on that feature. Kiting and reflex blocks are the other mechanics, these two topics are what allows Vox to go one-on-one with Reim and other melee heroes like him. Without these, vox would be a sitting-duck, letting Reim land his A-ability over and over again. Always move around when fighting, generally backwards on defensive vox, ready to reflex block crowd control abilities. Once the enemy is low enough, shift into an offensive mindset, sticking to your target with stutter-stepping and sonic zoom. If they surprise you with something, go back to defensive. Alternating between these two "modes" lets vox find a lot of success. Keep working on these mechanics, as pro players do these things almost instinctively.

Thank you for reading, this took a lot of time, but I love vox so it was fun :). Hope to see you on the fold!
