In homage to my favorite Avatar character Zuko, I decided to buy Valir in spite of him being overall lackluster, and even if I'm writing this guide, I still don't recommend y'all to use Valir in Ranked games. I only have <50% winrate on him, so feel-free to skip this guide if you don't have any plans of buying. Overall he's totally team-dependent.
Valir shines the most only if:
Support Emblem - IMO this is my goto emblem for Mages with low Mobility such as Eudora and Aurora.
I have it at Level 50, and this gives a max 10% Movement Speed which allows for outplay against aiming skills such as Lancelot. He's going to be a primary target for most assassins, so along with your 2nd skill this is necessary to catch them off-guard.
Blood Wings (flexible)
This build focuses on an Aurora-esque gameplay where you focus on the squishies such as Lesley and fire your combos at them. If they're Flicker is on cooldown, they are most likely dead even at full health. No CDR means your focus should be using the skills at the right time, and the results will be good if you do it right.
Clock of Destiny is important as a layer of protection so you don't die easily, and the stacks are valuable across the game. Games usually last more than 10 minutes now, so if Glowing Wand is built by then it gives you a total of 130 Magic Power. Holy Crystal increses this magic damage further, and if you're teamed up with a Ruby, Alpha, Tigreal, the results will be huge.
Necklace of Durance or Holy Crystal. Blood Wings (flexible)
While not as damage-oriented or impactful as the other build, the 20% CDR helps for anti-pushes when your team is at a disadvantage. If you can cast ulti more often this will help get you in the lategame for a comeback.
Skill 1 for that 80% slow, Ulti > Skill 1 for more slow > Skill 2 to reposition enemies into the ulti radius. When laning save Skill 2 to cancel enemy dashes/blinks towards you.
That's about it for Valir, so thanks for reading this guide!
