Full Ad Team
No Ap on your team? No Problem.
Threats to Malphite with this build
|Riven||E, W, Q, end early and go bake some cupcakes with the time you saved by them surrendering.|
|Rengar||Ad assassin. You're an anti ad tank. Should be the same as riven, unless of course he is Ap.|
|Urgot||Urgot VS Malphite top isn't a lane. It's a cemetery.|
Why hello there! I am Adentoros, and I have only lost once as Malphite at the time of writing this, so I feel I am quite qualified to make this guide. I am however by no means good at writing guides, so I appreciate any and all feedback! Just burn me to the f***ing ground. I bet you won't you wuss.
Pros And Cons
+Ridiculously strong against AD
+Even stronger against "face roll" attack speed champions like Jax and Yi
+Able to protect carries easily
Full ap is dank
-Low Damage if not full AP
-Bad against AP
But how do I play (champion name)? -Uberdanger
Malphite harrasses his enemies by walking up to them, using e, q, and w, and slapping them a few times so that grasp of the undying activates for top lane, or just until you feel you need to stop for any other lane. In tea fights your job is to ult as many people as you can, e as many people as you can, and soak up as much as of that sweet juicy ಠ_ಠ ahem, damage as you can(unless you're Ap in which case Zhonyas.) If you ever find yourself in a 1v1 you should e, q, w, and smack the sh*t out of them and ult if you feel the need to.
Top and Jungle Items
Doran's Shield is your starting item against any AD champions, and Null-Magic Mantle is your starting item against ap as there is no other suitable choice.
Sunfire Cape is the very core of your build for the reason that it provides area of effect damage around you, gives armor, and also gives you hp. It is an exceptional itsem on any tank except supports because of Mobility boots.
Is your second core item because it provides you with mobility, a small amount of damage, health, armor, and a slow.
The reason I have chosen this item as the go to MR item is because it gives you a shield for you AND your team, hp, and health regeneration, even though the mr is a bit low.
Works very well with Lotis and can be very good if you have no Ap champions on your team.
Take Ninja Tabi versus hypercarry adcs or champions with lots of crits (Jinx, Yasuo, Tristana) and Mercury's Treads if not against any of them.
Is of use against champions that rely heavily on attack speed such as Yi or Jax. Randuin's Omen should only be used against Azir as the hp is more useful against him then the extra armor.
If the enemy has no Ap (except supports (not including Lux, Annie, Etc.)) this should be your second item.
Fill any remaining item slots with Warmog's Armor, Righteous Glory, and Spirit Visage.
For jungle all you have to do is get blue jungle item with green enchantment instead of Sunfire cape.
As support Malphite you don't need to worry about CS! You just need the zone the living SH*T out of the enemy adc with qs and es.
As you can see Malphite beats most top laners. Malphite is always a good choice for support unless the enemy ADC is a Teemo. He is an especially good choice against any enemies who rely heavily on attack speed, such as Vayne. Mid Malphite should only be done in normals, and I feel no need to explain it further then e, q, ult, zhonyas and do da big dahmage.
Thankful to anyone who read this guide! I have written two other guides that you can get to by clicking the images
Also I am running into a problem where mobafire publishes my guide when I mean to save it.
