How do I get AP (Ability Power)?

I saw people playing Veigar with large amounts of AP, which increases the damage you do with your abilities, and I still dont understand how to get that?
Can someone help me?

Hey JeMoeder,

Basic AP is bought in the same way as AD. You can filter ability power items in the shop.

A Rabadon's Deathcap also has a passive to increase AP by 30%, so having this with a large amount of base AP gives you much much more.

Finally, Viegar has a unique ability to gain AP. When he last hits with his Q he gains 1 AP. It also gives extra AP for champion kill/assist.
