Glaive Afterburn and Crits are Glaive's bread and butter. You will want to keep your distance from him at all costs because he can easily put you in an unfavorable position. Beware! If you are in basic attack range of him then you are also in range of his afterburn. You will want to start a fight with pulse making sure you catch him with it, from there on kiting is grangor brute will be easy and together with Aftershock you will be able to kill him quickly.
7
Catherine The Captain of the Stormguard is your worst nightmare! She can stun you out of your ultimate (if timed correctly), she can silence you and she reflect a lot of your inherent burst damage that you get from your Sonic Zoom and Aftershock. DO NOT ATTACK HER WITH HER SHIELD ON! Furthermore buy a reflex block to negate either her stun (if the enemy has strong follow up) or her Silence (you will need to spam you Sonic zoom for this build to work, if you get silenced be ready to fall back and regroup with your team)
7
Koshka Yummy Catnip Frenzy can easily take you out of the fight and allow the enemy team to focus you down. Invest in an early reflex block to negate her stun.
7
Skye She has arguably more mobility than you and a well targeted forward barrage can easily take you down. If facing her you will want to Sonic Zoom to the side and kite from there. Be careful of her reposition tool (Suri Strike) as the missles deal a fair amount of damage if built on a CP path. Sonic Zoom around her and you will be able to win against her.
8
Celeste She can easily poke you with her overdriven Heliogenesis and burst you down with a well targeted A & B Combo. She has a devastating ultimate that can easily bring you down to half health. You will want to all in her and dodge her Heliogenesis with well placed Sonic Zooms.
8
Skaarf Similar to Celeste Skaarf can easily bring you down to low health with his Spitfire's. Late game when you have your core items built you can easily kill this baby dragon.
9
Ringo In the early game Ringo out ranges you and that will make it hard for you to farm. Together with his heroic perk Ringo can harass the living daylight out of you. Buying and early Light Armor and four Halcyon potions can help you farm and reach your power spike in the late game. Beware! if Ringo builds double Tyrants Monocle (which is quiet common) then let your Roamer or jungler apply an Atlas of Pauldron on him first. This will give you a fighting chance against ringo.
9
Taka A good Taka will be able to burst you down all throughout the game if you don't buy defensive items against him. Be sure to keep your Pulse off cooldown so that when Taka kaku's you can pulse and easily determine where he is and act accordingly.

INTRODUCTION Top

Welcome to the Spinny Twirly Vox guide which is inspired by the one and only king of the Graveyard Xenotek!

my name is EVLSCRT and I play in SEA.

Okay lets get started, the main premise of this build focuses on spamming your A ability - Sonic Zoom.

(Think of it like this: we all know Vox as a mobile sniper in game but he can also be a mobile spellcater with the use of his Sonic Zoom and an aftershock)

You might be wondering to yourself... "Why would I want to play Vox as a spellcater when his sniper build path is already very strong?..." To this I say ATLAS PAULDRON! Vox's sniper build path which is Alternating Current, Broken Myth and Eve of Harvest/Shatterglass is strong and has very good wave clear however a well timed Atlas can easily take away from all of this power since Vox's sniper build path requires the player to kite and stutter step around his/her opponents.

On the other hand there aren't any hard counters to abilities like Vox's Sonic Zoom. You could argue that reflex block can effectively negate Vox's dash but with the low cooldown on Vox's Pulse brought about by the clockwork and aftershock in this build you can easily reapply resonance over and over again throughput a team fight and make quick work of the enemy team.

PLAYSTYLE Top

As the name of the build suggest you will be spinning and twirling your way to victory!

You will want to start of with a crystal bit or swift shooter and two halcyon potions as your first purchases. If you think you will have a hard time dealing the enemy laner - say Ringo or Skaarf then you will want to buy a tier one defensive item and four halcyon potions. This will give you enough defense and sustain to farm safely for the first 3 min. of the game. Beware! if you choose to go the defensive route it may be more difficuly fro you to last hit a target... so choose your poison wisely!

You should be able to rush Aftershock by the 5-6 min. mark, this is crucial as Aftershock is Vox's main source of damage in this build path. Getting an early aftershock and tier 2 boots will allow you to rotate quickly and help in defending against jungle invades or early team fights!

For your second item you may choose to go Broken Myth or Clockwork depending on what the enemy builds. If the enemy team starts to stack shield items it will be more beneficial for you to take Broken Myth first. Additionally if the enemy team is composed of tanky heroes like Krul, Glaive, Phinn, and Ardan Broken Myth would also be better as it will allow you to break their defenses. If the enemy team however goes for a double squishy composition like Kestrel, Celeste, Skaarf, Ringo etc... buying a Clockwork first may be better as it allows you to front load more burst damage in a shorter period of time. The choice really boils down to wether or not you want more power or more attack speed. Additionally buying Eve of Harvest as a third item to substitute for clockwork or as a fourth item can help you sustain throughout teamfights.

After you have your three core damage items - Aftershock, Broken Myth and Clockwork you may counter build against the enemy team.
