Introduction

Jungle tank Malphite who is king of the jungle?? WW?? not anymore... Armor tank Malphite takes WW anyday... This build takes down any dps and holds you off against casters...


Guide Top

Runes

I get health per lvl marks and quints to stack with his passive... Armor per lvl seals to help with resist and damage output... Magic resist per lvl glyphs to hold off casters...


Guide Top

Masteries

I go with 1-21-8 tank jungling build... get improved smite to get smite back up faster and get more gold for early help in items and moving fast in the jungle... get all the resist u can in Defensive and health also a must is nimbleness... get improved ghost to help gank and the extra xp is most important in the jungle to keep up in lvls


Guide Top

Items

First off its best to stack as much armor as you can to do more damage... But this is why malphite is very hard to build u have to go against what the other team is stacking...I always get my dodge boots to stack with nimbleness...Sunfire i always get too bc he helps me farm SO SO SO much...GA is a must too it helps with both armor and MR...You will also most likely want a Veil more health more mana more MR and the most important take out a spell GG...then after that u will be looking at the other teams builds if they are AD heavy get thornmail... if they are attack speed heavy get frozen heart... if they are AP heavy get a force of nature... Also if u like get a Omen its a game changer

Skill Sequence

U must start out with ur E its ur most important spell other then ult!!! Yuor E stacks with 70% or ur armor...then u get W to help u push the jungle faster... At lvl 4 u get ur Q to help with ur ganking...HINT YOU ALWAYS GANK THE 2V1 LANE... dont fail on your teammates


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Smite obviously ur jungling enough said... then ghost to help gank and get outta sticky situations


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros/ If the other team is all AD and AS u win doesnt matter stack armor and u nuke all of them at once... Malphite is the BEST in the game at starting fights... Fun to play
Cons/ Not so great against casters... In ranked usually banned... Have to have good teammates behind u if they arent ready ur gonna die quick bc he is a soft tank... DONT MISS UR ULT
