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.
Amumu, the best choice for anyone who likes to be a tank which makes the full opposing team tremble in fear. He's the best initiator in game imo and he can ace full team engages with his ulti. Just imagine yourself being in the opposing team and you are a fed AP carry, tons of dmg. Both you and the opposing team are waiting for the right moment to engage, and all of a sudden you see this damn cable coming towards your team and its followed by an insta AoE stun which also takes around 20-40% of each of your team's champ's hp. By the time you get out of this stun the opponent went ape**** AOE and burst on all of you and you will feel like you are blessed by the LoL gods if at least you survived this madness.
THIS is the power of....
Experienced/Skilled players ONLY!
I am getting some suggestion and criticism about the fact that I'm not explaining my item-, mastery-, rune- and summoner spell choices. Just FYI, I am not a LoL teacher to teach you how to play LoL. This guide is for skilled and/or at least experienced enough players that don't need to have any champ completely explained, like why Flash would be very useful, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? xD. So this guide provides all the info's i would be searching for in a guide when I'd like to play a new champ (item-, mastery- and rune build, summoner spells and the importancy of getting kills for your champ. If it's a junglechamp then i'll be needing his blue dependancy and his jungle route). This is how a experienced player reads a guide, and he skips any ********s like why to choose items or summoner spells. Good luck with this guide! Clear and simple.
Pros / Cons
- Strong jungler
- Amazing initiator
- 2 stuns
- Good damage
- Good farmer
- AoE Damage
- Blue dependant early game
- Does dmg over time
Creeping / Jungling
Amumu is a champ which you really want to get fed. So you just concentrate on jungling early game, at lvl 4 you did your first jungle routine which is done in this order:
Blue - Wolves - Wraiths - Golems - Red - Wraiths - Wolves
When you did this routine you are lvl 4 and you recall to buy whatever you can from my item order and from then on you will be concentrating on ganking.
DO NOT GANK BEFORE RECALLING AT lvl 4!
So you are at base just recovered from your first jungle routine and you just check the map to see which lane would be needing a gank the most, or where you can get the most benefit from a gank for your team. Ofcourse you always take any creeps down you pass on your way to the lane you are gonna be ganking.
For the rest of the match you will be doing this. Check map for gank priority, kill all the creeps on your way and let your laner know you are on your way to come and gank his lane.
If you manage to feed your Amumu, be prepared for AWESOME engages. He performs Pentakills 1vs5, you just jump in their full group with your bandage while you already activated your crying AoE ability, ulti followin and then just spam your tantrum and they will most likely all be dead before your ulti even expires. Be ready for scores containing around 30/40 kills if you're hunting your opponents well.
As you can see it is a bit of a hybrid build(Tank/AP), but I am sure that my item order is much better than any of the others you've seen just yet, even if you are critical about this order, just try it out once and I think it'll change your opinion in a positive way.
If you've got any suggestions for me, feel free to inform me about it.
