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.
Hi guys, this is going to be my first build of the lovely Moba community. Obviously, It's my favorite Tank/Jungler Amumu. (:
(this is where you'd usually see the story of amumu, but i'm not going to put it there because i'm lazy. :p)
AS you can see from the items, this is a tanky amumu with alot of DoT with his Despair skill. I personally think this is how Amumu should be played. He is basically unkillable, and by just standing there, he could do sooo much damage.
Pros / Cons
- ALOT of life
- Great DoT damage
- His ult.
- Its Amumu
- I want to hug him
- Pretty hard early game
- his Despair drains mana like a alcholic
- can't stand his voice
BANDAGE TOSS : This is your initiate move. With this build, you are going to do 500+ damage it. (:
DESPAIR : This is Amumu's second best move. Killing offtanks, easy. Toggle this on, and watch them die. You might need to get a meal though.
TANTRUM : Imo, this move is good for jungling, but not for dealing damage. I mean, you do get hit constantly, but this doesn't do enough damage. ):
CURSE OF THE SAD MUMMY : This is the move that makes Amumu Amumu. This is why he's banned from sooo many ranked games. Use it wisely.
I'll start this off by saying, I'm not the best at Amumu and i never will be, I just decided to post MY build on him. Please no hardcore rage. (:
Cloth armour 5 pot: pretty self explanitory, I use it to jungle
Boots of swiftness: Not worth it, since your also going to get FoN
Berserker's Greaves: You don't attack.
This leave, Ninja Tabi and Merc Treads.
Get whichever you think would benefit you in the long run. If their team is AD oriented, get the Armour boots, if not get the Merc Treads.
RoA : I like this on Amumu, because it helps with Amumu's OOM problem, whenever he toggles Despair in teambattles. Also, it give AP and HP (AMUMU LIKE)
Rylai's : Despair with Rylai's means constant damaging, slowing tears of the sad mummy. They'll just give up. (:
FoN : you are slow, need hp regen and like magic resist. :O match made in heaven.
Randuin's : I love the active, I lvoe the passive, and you just need it.
Sunfire Cape : HP pluss u burn your opponents. Slowing damaging tears + burns. They screwwwweddddd.
Order of items
I usually would rush to my RoA, but it all has to depend with the enemy team.
If you don't feel safe, get the FoN or the Randuin's
If your stomping get the RoA
It all depends on the game. (:
Creeping / Jungling
s1. Mini Golems (use smite)
2. Wraithes (get the big one first)
(from here, you should go back to shop for your boots and if you can finish your madred's razer)
4. Blue golem and go look for ganks
5. red golem and go gank
Basically, it should be W,Q,EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE (if you don't have ur ult)
If you do have ur ult, W, Q, R, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
My final statement is that amumu is amazing. Also, whoever plays it should be happy, because they have one of the best characters.
