Rylai's Scepter on a champion that has a built in slow is quite stupid. Furthermore, building less defensive lessens the usefulness of Mundo. Mundo thrives on having the enemy team focus all their damage onto him to keep their carries alive.

This build simply gets Mundo instagibbed before he can even touch the enemy carry. Not recommended.

Rettani, I've checked and corrected everything you commented, thank you for your help (I've added your name at the end of the guide too).

I've definitely erased WotA, but not Hextech Gunblade because of the active, which can be useful in very situational cases. About the 218 AP, it's a residual statistic, I never choice an item because of its ability power but thinks like Rylai's Crystal Scepter have it. My priority for this build is tank stats, magic penetration and utility, and the only AP item which you doesn't like, the Abyssal Scepter, gives all three things and helps the other mages of your team. Despite of this, I encourage you (and everybody) to change and try all you want, this is why I've added other recommended items such as Warmog.

I've actualized the initial items and I want to add more details about summoner spells, maybe a second build too...

Thank you, and tell me anything you want to comment!

No vote for now, some comments on your guide.

Offtank-Caster Mundo is good idea. And I like your ability sequence. But unfortunatelly, you are building "mage mindo" wrong. He has TERRIBLE AP scaling on his Burning Agony. In your calculatios you have 218 AP. It's only 40 additional DPS. It can be easily achieved with Sunfire Cape. Without sacrificing any tankiness and spending tons of gold on useless AP.

Liandry's + Sorc shoes is enougth (may be with Ryalai's for "sticking") to be "Mage Mundo".

Spellvamp:
WOTA for Mundo? Please, kill me. 80 AP = 80 * 0.2 = 16 additional DPS. Sunfire is only 100 gold more and gives you free 40 DPS with good tank stats. If you want SpellVamp on Mundo that much build Spectral Wraith which will give quicker dragon/baron at least and raise your CDR to 34%. It's practically hard cap

Quoted:
with the Rylai's Crystal Scepter it slows the target's movement speed by 75%


Slows doesn't work that way.

Quoted:
If a champion is affected by multiple slows, the strongest one will be fully applied, while the others are applied sequentially with 65% reduced effectiveness down to 35% of its original strength.


So, Cleaver + Rylai's will give 40 + 35 * 0.35 = 52.5% slow, not 75%.

P.S. I hope you'll improve your guide and it'll be in top 10 Mundo guides. I'm so bored of "full-tank" Mundos and Zacs...

Thanks for that positive votes, people. I'm pleased to say that I've finished exams, so after the E3 (or maybe during it) I'll update the guide with details about the Thornmail and some other tips. Thank you for your help!

Oh, yeah, and I need a nice signature. "To do" list. :-P

I liked the build, it works really great, some tankiness and outstanding poke, I tried "False ap Mundo" and I reccomend it

OK, I've seen what you meant, RuminatingWin, and I think that now there isn't any reference to the spell vamp, and I've edited the items chapter too (more initial sets). If you see any other contradiction tell me, please, because now I don't have time to read everything carefully. Thank you for your help.

Next step is analyse the Randiun and the Thornmail.

If your going to say you should use spell vamp then include it in your standard build...That comes across as a contradiction. Spirit visage does not give spell vamp, in case you're thinking that.

Yes, I know that there are more thinks to modify, but I'm very busy this days. Give me some more time to edit everything, please.

I think that Spirit Visage should be removed in late game and replaced with a Warmog's Armor, but it's a very nice build. I'll try it soon!

I have exams right now, so I hadn't finished to test your suggestions since now. I've edited the guide according to your opinions about Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Will of the Ancients, I've found the first one helpful in more situations. I'm still talking about spell vamp because it can be interesting, but it's not part of the core anymore.

When I have more time, I will test the Thornmail carefully. I've been using the Randuin's Omen recently and I have to say that, if we already have Rylai's Crystal Scepter, it's movement speed reduction isn't really useful, but the health and armor are nice. I think that these to items (Randuin and Thornmail) are good when the enemy team has few AP casters and you need more armor, so you can build one of these instead of the Abyssal Scepter. I'll test it when I finish the exams, and if it works as I expect I'll edit the guide again.

Thank you for your comments, they are helpful for me.


P.D.: Readers, I'm not building AP, I'm always looking for other stats when I'm choosing the items, so don't tell me that I'm building AP because, although it's helpful in teamfights, I'm not.

As mentioned before, this just isn't really worth doing. Mundo has ONE skill that scales off AP and it's only 20% scaling. This means that he almost never will be able to make use of it, and benefits more from building health anyway. I couldn't say this is a good build, in any circumstance.

While the utility from the items select are nice, Mundo just doesn't get enough benefit from them for me to really consider this something worth playing.

This is perfectly viable, especially since the focus of this build lies more on MPen than acctually on AP. Liandry's Torment is a huge item for mundos cleavers and Abyssal Scepter and Will of the Ancients can just be left to the mid/jungler and dont necessarily need to be build on him. But enhancing the biggest part of mundo's damage (magical damage) is very, very rewarding.

This build is a perfect lineup for a strong poke composition. Though very tough to lane with it, it works remarkably well in mid-late game clashes. Btw, Zekent has played this build several times, talking about its strengths and weaknesses. If it fits the team, it works wonders.

Activate comment to vote now (in edit mode ''C2V''). Otherwise, your guide will get troll downvoted to hell very quickly.

As you maybe know, I'm a big fan of unconventional builds so it goes without saying that I love your guide. Here's my opinion:

Magic Pen Quints instead of movement speed. Magic Pen and Liandry's Torment + Sunfire Cape truly are the main focus of the build here since The cleaver and Mundo's W have such high base damages and Liandry's Torment, Sunfire Cape and Thornmail have no AP ratios but deal magic damage. Mpen is so good on Dr. Mundo

Yeah, Thornmail is extremely extremely really really omfg good on a melee champion that sticks in the face of an enemy (Mundo has to get close to the enemy to deal damage with W and sunfire and if you are freaking on top of someone, that someone WILL be forced to focus you or die), that has tons of HP (since you will be able to make more use of the armor and the passive), and has tons of magic penetration (since thornmail deals magic damage).

As smokedCarpenter said, what you want to do is be as tanky as possible, get Magic Pen + Sunfire and Liandry's and you're set. I really don't think Spell vamp is an efficient stat on Dr. Mundo at ALL. It is very very very expensive and Mundo doesn't even make really good use of it since his W only benefits from Spell vamp at 1/3 rate and his E and R don't deal spell damage. You could use that money to buy stuff that is much better like Warmog's Armor, Sunfire Cape, Liandry's Torment, Sorcerer's Shoes, Thornmail and Rylai's Crystal Scepter or Spirit Visage :D.

Finally, you shouldn't include maths in your guide imo. People won't look at it and all it does really is unnecessarily take space, making the guide less interesting to read.

So you're telling me that building AP on a champ with one AP scaling skill that is only a 20% scale is a good idea? If you want to do something similar to this that actually works do only a little bit of magic pen such as sorc shoes and liandry's. Then go full tank.
