Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Welcome to the Mummy guide for S5
I'm loving the sad mummy in the new jungle. He lacks sustain, but his e's cd goes down when enemies attack him, makes him clear quite quickly.
Standard red/yellow/blue. Quints are where you can play around. I prefer move speed and health regen. Health regen is huge for the new jungle. You could also play around with AP quints.
I looked for a lot of defensive masteries that help me out in the jungle. I went for the standard 9 offensive AP masteries.
Every game is different. If you pay attention to your enemies and who's getting fed you can prioritize items better. Early items purchase order may change depending on what you need:
Tenacity: Ranger's Trailblazer
Armor: Glacial Shroud
Magic Resist: Cowl
Map Awareness: Sightstone
I'm constantly vocal in game chat. From the lobby I let ppl know I want to go mummy so I we can work on synergy. For example, getting a morgana or leona support is dope.
Initiaiting bro. You can see I don't build a ton of damage. The mummy scales well, he will continue to do good damage, but that's not the main role. Start fights, stick in fights, make plays!
I'm still playing around and figuring stuff out. Sometimes I start toad or blue. Smiting either or. I don't want to say what's the best because I'm unsure, but I've been very successful starting at Toad, getting blue, wolves, then ganking mid. You'll be level 3. Or if you don't want to gank, go straight to red, as long as your smite is coming up shortly you can kill red, it gives you a nice chunk of health from smiting it.
NOTE: All big jungle creatures do something for you when you smite them. Wolf, small ward. Red, health given to you. I'm not sure on the others. Leave comments if you know or know of a link.
Amumu shines in team fights. He's great in small skirmishes as well. Obviously you want to q into the fight, getting that stun off, then ult their team. Flash q ult is also solid. Flash ult is the sweetest b/c it sets up an easy q for an extended stun. The one interesting thing about amumu that people do poorly at is around auto attacking. You usually don't want to auto attack. It's better to move to smart places to get your aoe damage off on everyone, walking past an enemy into the bush he's going to before him while he tries to kite allows you to keep vision of him and continue to damage him. If you walk past someone, sure turn around and auto them, then keep walking away, but focusing someone is about your aoe damage, not your auto attacks.
Early ganks are great. Forcing flashes is great. But if you aren't getting kills or assissts off these ganks you need to get to farming the jungle. Falling behind because you've been ganking isn't good. You need to get to 6 asap, and the best part about Amumu is he scales well. If you're falling behind in level you're missing out on the best part of this mummy.
It be workin yo
I was surprised I was able to get the jungle call in this many games straight, my teams were never disappointed.
I threw this guide together super quick. I don't usually make guides, just recognize this new jungle is tough and figured I'd throw something out there to help people out. If you've any questions or want some more detail hit me up.
