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.
Now I've seen many builds and playing styles with Amumu. But with his double stun, I don't see any other way of having Amumu played other then in the jungle. This is Peanutbutteh's Guide to Amumu's jungling, step by step. Hope you enjoy this. If you like this guide and build, please vote for it. I really wanna know what people think. Leave feedback for things I can work out or resolve or give reason to why I do it.
So if you haven't jungled before with Amumu, This chapter is your guide on where to start and how to do it as fast as possible.
You want to start at the Blue Buffed Golems, turning your despair on while downing 1 potion, and smiting it near 1/3 health usually works best. Kill the golem before his minions. Move your way down to the Wolves, then to the Wraiths, then to the Red Buffed Dragon, While your smite should have about 4 seconds left on cooldown if done as fast as possible. Then make your way to the 2 Golems. While doing all this, make sure you have your potion on at all times. Everytime your potion runs out, drink a new one, even if your not attacking anything. After golems, you should have just under 100 health. Recall, grab your tier 1 boots and 2 health potions. Head your way down to the wolves again, back to the wraiths, and then back to the golems which should leave you with 1/4 experience into level 5. If they don't have a jungler, you can grab their blue buff after golems, and attempt to gank whichever side it is that your on, whereafter you get the blue buff, you should be level 6. Once your level 6, rinse and repeat, and gank when your team is pushed back to the tower. With this jungling guide, you should be par with leveling as the solo lane.
So if showing you how I built these items doesn't show you enough, I will go more in-depth on what to get. First you want to start off with Cloth Armor and 5 health potions. After your first run to the jungle, You want to get your Boots of Speed along with 2 More Health Potions. Follow the jungling guide more, and then finish your Boots of Swiftness for faster jungling and more effective ganking. From there, grab your Chain Vest and your Null Magic Mantle, to then finally build into your Guardian Angel. From there, Farm up to build your Rod of the Ages for the health, mana, and ability power bonuses over time. I use this item for much more effective ganking, since Amumu doesn't put out a lot of burst damage. But buying him Rod of the ages, will do a lot more while stunning your enemy in place twice. From there, Proceed to either building your Randuin's Omen or Force of Nature, of course depending on the team setup your going against. Finally finishing off with your Rylai's Crystal Scepter making it impossible for your enemy to run away if you get a hold of them.
To end it all..
If anyone has any question's on my build. Please do leave a comment and let me know. I do live off feedback and will work this build out. To me, this build definately is the best build I've come up with so far for Jungling Amumu. If you have question's on his rune's or masteries and why I built it that way, please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for reading up on this guide, and I hope it works for you as well as it worked for me.
