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.

Introduction

I've decided that I love playing Kog'Maw in Dominion mode. Why? Yes, he's squishy, but he absolutely wipes out enemies and can be the reason your team wins games. Because Dominion is a rather new game mode (at the time of this guide) I'm going to include not only tips on how to build and play Kog'Maw, but how to play Dominion as well. This build has led me to take either #2 or #1 on my team almost every game, and I've never fallen below #3.

Keep in mind, playstyles and metagame may change a bit. If it does, I'll try to come back here and update. My main idea with this build is to bring you the best DPS Kog build for Dominion and keep it that way. Enjoy!

Runes/Masteries/Skills

RUNES:
Dominion is extremely fast-paced so grabbing flat runes for anything is kind of pointless. Scaling runes will absolutely be the best bet for almost any champion in this game mode. Because this is so, you will notice the runes I have chosen for Kog'Maw are all scaling.

The Marks and Quints are straightforward enough. With our item build, we'll have PLENTY of ASPD, so we want to maximize our damage output.

Seals and Glyphs should be obvious for Kog'Maw veterans. The guy is squishy, so we want to protect ourselves without having to sacrifice precious gold to do so.


MASTERIES:

Kog'Maw is set up in a very offensive mastery tree. Since this build essentially turns him into an auto-attacking carry, we're going to make him hit hard. Also, since I've found his passive can very nicely clean up enemy champions after auto-attacking them (or leaving them plenty damaged to be cleaned up) we don't really need to worry about defense. Trust me.


SKILLS:

I'm going to edit this when I can confirm that the above is the actual skill order. Until then, just use it as a rule of thumb. When you start at level 3, grab 2 points in [skill="caustic spittle"] and 1 point in Bio-Arcane Barrage. The passive ASPD bonus from Caustic Spittle helps get that DPS pumping early. After we get Spittle to level 3, we should have enough for items to grant us that bonus, too.

From that point onward, it should be obvious that the order is W>R>Q>E. You'll almost never use E in Dominion, sad but true.
