Introduction

Perhaps one of the oddest champions in the League of Legends is the yordle known as Amumu. His life before joining the League remains unknown... especially to Amumu. All he remembers is that he woke up alone inside a pyramid within the Shurima Desert. He was entwined in mummy wrappings and he could not feel his heart beat. Furthermore, he felt a deep sadness that he could not entirely explain; he knew he missed his parents, though he could not remember who they were. Dropping to his knees, Amumu wept into his bandages. No matter what he did, it seemed he could never stop his tears or sadness. Eventually he stood up, determined to wander the world to discover his past. Amumu traveled all across southern Valoran - a feat that is not easily dismissed.

While Amumu still hasn't learned much about his past, he has learned a great deal about who he has become. He is most assuredly undead, though he harbors none of the evil characteristics typical of undead beings. He also seems to keep trouble at arm's length; Amumu was able to traverse all of Southern Valoran without so much as a single bad thing happening to him. He was just sad, and the people and beings he encountered eventually shared his sadness. Ultimately, he made his way north across the Great Barrier to the Institute of War, the home of the League. Amumu's story was compelling to the summoners he met there, and they invited him to take part in a League Judgment. His success within the League as a champion has given Amumu something he desired: a home. With his present (un)life secured, he now hopes the friends he has made will help him discover his past.

''Things are bad when Amumu is crying, but they're much worse when he's angry.'' - Ezreal

Summoner Spells

For Ammumu I would prefer you to use Flash and Exhaust, but there are other spells that are useful.

IE: Teleport- This is a very good spell for ganking/farming, keeping up in your lane/Soloing a lane IE: Your team has a jungler.

Clairvoyance- Awesome spell for ganking Junglers. Pop this baby off at blue buff and your team is in for the gank.. Though, I wouldn't get this spell if someone on your team already has it.

Ignite- This is an ok spell, I have never really liked ignite, most people use it to avoid having to turret dive, but with Amumu you can easily jump in and last hit a champion, I wouldn't recommend using it but I doubt it will have a negative affect on you.

Hint: Stay away from REVIVE Revive This spell is absolutely useless, yeah maybe you can revive yourself after you die but that doesn't even put any affect on the other team. This spell is absolutely useless, And I'm going to tell you this because for some reason Level 30's still love to use this spell.. When there's other useful spells like Exhaust that almost always can guarantee you a first blood, Lower levels this is to you also for future reference.

Items

I always start off getting a Doran's Shield Doran's Shield
Afterwards once I farm up enough gold I grab my boots ( Once you get enough gold and don't have enough room for a better core item, sell your doran's shield for space)



Core Tank items vs AD: Grab a Zhonya's Hourglass . Also get a Warmog's Armor , Thornmail

Core Tank items vs AP: Banshee's Veil , Abyssal Scepter, Force of Nature .

Core vs Both:: It's all depending on how many AD player's there are and how many AP player's there are. If the majority are AD, build into your Zhonya's Hourglass . Meaning your build should look like Boots of Swiftness/ Rod of Ages/ Thornmail/ Rabadon's Deathcap/ Force of Nature/ Zhonya's Hourglass

If there's more AP, build into your Abyssal Scepter . Meaning your build should look like Boots of Swiftness/ Rod of Ages/ Force of Nature/ Rabadon's Deathcap/ Thornmail/\/ Abyssal Scepter Everything is in order of buying sequence.

Skill Sequence

Bandage Toss- This is a very handy skill, if puts out a 1 second stun and it's very easy to use "ONCE YOU GET THE HANG OF IT" Note:: This is a Skill shot skill, if you're new to Amumu you'll find yourself missing it alot, Don't worry hense the word Skill shot, Once you get the hang of it I promise it'll be a very versatile skill for you. IE:: Good for ganking with Suprise{Hiding in bush [q]Haii Teemo,[e],[w] [Teemo has been slain], Jumping into Team fights to Punch down your R, Escaping ganks: using it on a Minion in a lane or a Minion in jungle.

Despair- This is an Awesome farmer, And it's actually pretty Awesome 1v1 or in team fights with Rabadon's because I believe you get +2% of Maximum health damage with A Rabadon's Deathcap Rabadon's Deathcap and Rod of Age's Rod of Age's. Which is a killer on tanks, Hell, it's a killer on any champion..

Tantrum- Good for Farming/Destroying Squishes, It's not the greatest vs Tanks with Magic resistance Built up.. But, when you run into the other team's DPS this spell is surely to swipe away a heavy amount of there Health. With a 5 second cool down AND Each time you're hit a .5 second cool down reduction, You're ready to spam that e key to devastate your enemies.


Curse of the Sad Mummy- Gosh, I can't even begin to explain how Important this skill is, this is your bread and butter in team fights. a 2.5 second delay on your enemies Making them unable to move, or Attack, This skill is so Important.. You don't want to waste it though, use it at the right moment. When you have a team fight going, that's the moment you want to to use this skill.

Conclusion

Amumu is a very versatile Champion with many ways to Assist his teammates, With this build I assure you the results I've gotten out of it, you'll be Annihilating your Enemies in team fights and 1v1's/ Farming the Hell out of Minions - Stacking up gold like it's nothing.
