Introduction and thanks

Introduction
Hi there , I'm Pebble or PebbleDevil ! I'm virtually unknown :( BUT it doesn't matter THAT much does it ? I'm gonna cry under my blankets now , NAWWHH :D ! This is my first guide and on my main favourite champ , Amumu The Sad Mummy ! He has been my favourite champ since like forever . I'm still pretty new to League of Legends since I've been playing for 2 months + . I hope this helps .

Credits :)

Pros / Cons

Teh pros and cons of Amumu .
Pros :D
1) If enemy champion has low health , BANDAGE TOSS :D
2) Lots of health , able to tank for team
3) Has , able to clear out large amount of minions quickly or " farm " for short
4) Good CC [ Crowd Control ]
5) Super Cute <3

Cons
1) UNBELIEVABLY SLOW BUT will be going through that in this guide
2) Might " Feed " during early , mid game
3) Turret hugger , if you're cautious like me about dying
4) Ulti has long CD [ Cooldown ] :(


That's mainly the stuff I face during games .

I'm not very good at explaining but I guess you kinda get it ? No ? Aww. :( I'll explain it then ! :D
Summoner's Wraith - Take , it increases AP and AD while on CD
Brute Force - Adds Attack Damage , you may tank for your team , but hey ? Deadly damage and health is always AWESOME ! :P
Butcher - As I said , FARM . Before you get , this should help out a little .
Alacrity - Adds Attack Speed , Amumu attacks slowly with his head . I think O_O
Sorcery - As I said in the Pros / Cons section , Amumu ultimate has a VERY LONG CD .
Weapon Expertise - Amour Pens can be useful
Arcane Knowledge - Magic Pens :D
Havoc - Increases your damage , Amumu doesn't do A LOT of damage :(
Sunder - Amour Pens :D
Resistance - Magic Resist , I honestly don't know what it does but BAAAH ! I've seen so many people taking this :3
Hardiness - Amour , good if the enemy team build heavy AD , I think :[ I'm not too sure ?
Durability - Adds health per level , in case you don't wanna get Warmog's
Vigor - If you don't regen health fast enough , how will you tank ?
Indomitable - Reduces incoming damage ? Uhmm ... I don't know how to explain O_O

Runes

This is the second thing apart from Masteries , Runes , they're quite important I guess . :/ To be truthful , I've only learn how to use Runes recently , so I hope you people don't mind ? OR Amumu WILL CRY . :D

Runes

Greater Mark of Health
9

Greater Seal of Armor
4

Greater Seal of Health
2

Greater Seal of Scaling Health Regeneration
2

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
3

Greater Glyph of Attack Damage
3

Greater Glyph of Critical Damage
3

Greater Quintessence of Scaling Mana Regeneration

ForMarks I would take Greater Mark of Fortitude
For Seals , Seal of Resilience , Seal of Fortitude , Seal of Regen
Glyphs , I'd take Glyph of Shielding , Glyph of Strength , Glyph of Furor
Quints :D , Quintessence of Clarity
I'll explain now why I take these Runes .
Marks - Add health :)
Seals - Amour , Health , Health Regen . You'll need amour for defense :D
Glyphs - Magic Resist , AD , Critical Strike :D Crits are good because you do more damage !
Quints - Mana Regen , I always run out of Mana while farming minions with .

Summoner Spells and why I choose them

Summoner Spells :D
I like colours so :D I just noticed the word ' colours ' has the red squiggle , I'm sure it's spelled as , ' colors ' but that's the american way isn't it ? BAAAH , I'll do it my way !
Viable Spells
, I think they nerfed so you won't be able to flash over walls .
- For early game kills , enemy champs have low health them :D
- To catch up or run away
Less viable Spells
- It's still a good choice for chasing down enemies
- You might get over this , up to you anyways
- ONLY if you want damage , otherwise I won't really recommend getting it
- UNLESS you're always oom [ Out of Mana ]
- Rush to the team fight !
- If you want to push lanes , but you're just there to absorb the damage
- For players new to Amumu
- UNLESS . You're forced to be SupportMumu :D
Almost useless Spells
- Impatient much ? It's USELESS unless you're new
- Are you jungling ? Amumu jungle like a boss , never run out of toilet paper :3
- I have seriously no idea why you'll get this O_O
- You'll have so much health that turrets won't matter
- Never used it before , so yeah
Spells I recommend taking and NOT taking :)

Why I take first , well , some people might get first and max it last , I choose first because you can do damage to champs .
Adding whenever possible .
Pretty much like that :3
Attacking a champion , I'll then , toggle on , spam and if you want the kill so badly . The keys go 'Q' , 'W' , 'E' , 'R' is optional .

Ability Explaination

  • Amumu's passive is , Amumu's attacks reduces target's magic resistance by 15 / 25 / 35 for 4 seconds . The debuff does not stack but refreshes with every attack . DAAYUM , I just copied it :D
  • Amumu's W is . It's toggle like thingy , when toggled , Amumu attacks surrounding enemies .
  • Amumu's E is . Basically , it attacks . It's cooldown is reduced when he gets hit by an auto attack .
  • Amumu's ultimate is , able to stun a group of champions , works great for team fights .

    I guess I'm a little naggy and stuff but hey , you gotta be clear about some things right ?

So , I start of with a
  • , mainly because you can upgrade it into a philosopher's stone
  • Other than , I'll get a , I would get a when I play vs bots , otherwise when you're confident you won't die .
  • B and get your philosopher's stone , it should be fairly quick to get this item .
  • Next , you're gonna wanna get , as I mentioned earlier , Amumu isn't very fast .
  • This is where you start getting health related items , adds 430 health ! Such a good item for tanks .
  • Cooldown reduction time ! helps out a lot ! Reducing 15% Cooldown time , Amumu's ultimate is reduced a little .
  • Amour and health . has them both ! It's passive deals 35 Magic Damage to nearby enemies .
  • Attack Damage is the reason I get , adds 700 health :)
  • OPTIONAL This second is optional , if you don't wanna wait for 3000 bloody gold !
  • THIS IS ALSO OPTIONAL A second is not needed but I get it so it doesn't seem takes forever to get .
  • Next item , 920 health and 30 health per 5 seconds
  • , Mana , Health , Magic Resist , what more could you want ?
  • , mainly health regen and Magic Resist
  • Our last item on the list , , Amour and Magic Resist , Awesome Passive , revives your champion !

    That's about everything , I doubt you'll be able to get them all , if you do , after finishing the list , you might wanna get some damage items :)

Farming

Farming
Farming actually helps to the kills you didn't take , I don't play aggresive unless it's with Fizz otherwise :D I'm Mr Nice Guy :D
I usually give kills to my team , I would play support much more , unless when I wanna get kills and someone KS me , I actually would curse them to die lol . :(
The method to farm with Amumu is toggle , then , if minions start hitting you , SPAM ! Auto attacks reduce 's CD , making it spammable .

Team Fights

Teamfights
This is the part where you have been preparing for ... uuhhh ... basically you've been preparing for your whole life . [ I stole that line from Christina Grimmie's video :) ]

And because you have , GET YOUR *** OUT THERE AND TANK ***** !
Oops , my bad language x( Sorry .
