Here is the full guide on how to play Vi in League of Legends season 13 like the godlike Chinese jungle player Bo.
Bo Vi Jungle Guide – Everything you need to know
Vi has been rising in popularity in both solo queue and professional play in the new season of League of Legends. Not only is she a great skirmisher with lots of damage but she also has a powerful point-and-click lockdown tool with her ultimate. Thanks to the introduction of new items and builds, she’s now a top-tier jungler.
That said, it’s important to understand Vi’s item spikes within the game to bring her to maximum potential. For this reason, we’ve compiled the best builds and runes, taking them from one of the strongest Vi players in the world: Bo.
Vi Jungle Build by Bo
Bo is known for playing very aggressively on Vi, with a strong presence in the early game. Whether it’s fighting the enemy jungler or ganking lanes, Bo will impact the map early on.
The first item to rush depends from game to time, but the most recent Vi builds prefer Black Cleaver as the item to rush. Following the recent buffs, the item gives a lot more value given that it shreds armor and grants a small movement speed bonus. Chempunk Chainsword is usually built first only against multiple healing sources.
Regardless of which item is built, the second core item is Radiant Virtue. The item grants a lot of great stats when ulting which Vi does almost every time the ability is available.
After the first three items and boots, Vi needs to choose the two remaining to round off the build. In most scenarios, you want to build both resistances so go for one MR item and one armor item: for more MR, go for Force of Nature, otherwise opt for Randuin’s Omen or Guardian Angel. If you’re ahead of the enemy and want extra offensive stats, go for Guardian Angel.
Overall, this is the usual build seen in most of his Vi games:
- Black Cleaver
- Mercury’s Treads/Plated Steelcaps
- Radiant Virtue
- Chempunk Chainsword
- Guardian’s Angel
- Force of Nature/Randuin’s Omen

Bo’s Vi Runes
Vi uses only one rune setup for Vayne and it has Conqueror as a keystone rune. It grants additional attack damage when fighting, and some healing when fully stacked. For a skirmishers like Vi, it’s the best rune you can get on her. By going Precision as the primary tree, Uzi usually picks the following minor runes:
- Triumph for the extra healing;
- Legend: Tenacity for additional tenacity against crowd controls;
- Last Stand to deal more damage during skirmishes.
The secondary rune tree is Inspiration, with Magical Footwear and Cosmic Insight as the go-to choices. The first gives him a pair of free boots, saving 300 gold, while the latter guarantees lower cooldowns on items and summoners spells.
If you want to play Vi like Bo, sticking to this guide will allow you to get the most out of the Piltover Enforcer.
