Introduction

Hello! This build makes your Kog Maw a useful hero to your team and it makes him very fun to play. Its working very well for me. I have tried other builds but this build feels more adjusted to my requirements.

This is my first guide ever made so feel free to post feedback!


Guide Top

Runes

I have not given much thought to the runes. I just go with the runes that I already have, and those runes are flat AD pen Marks, flat armor seals, flat CD Reduction glyphs and HP Quints.
A small tip. This build doesnt give Kog any magic resistance. So maby you should go with Magic res glyphs or something. But then again, if you're facing much ap- just buy magic res items.

Masteries

Well. Again I exprement with Masteries. And this is my result. The Masteries have no big influence on my build, so go with whatever you feel like :)

Items

I use to try get my Tear of the Goddess as fast as possible and use spells alot just to get its mana-bonus to 1000 as fast as I can. And then Im getting boots. Because movment-speed is very important with Kog Maw. You are pretty squishy, so you need movment-speed to dodge attacks and suck from your opponents. And without movment-speed you cant flee from/chase your opponents if you'll end up in that situation. After you have bought Tear of the Goddess and Berserker Greaves you have to feel what your champion needs. I usually buy Phage, some damage and then mallet. When you have the items in the build you can try to figure out what you need next. Maby Wits end, Hexdrinker, double bloodthirsters, whatever. Just free-base with items. Im sure you'll end up killing lots of people :D

Laning

You'll have to farm your *** of. Kill lots of creeps. I usually end up with the highest number of creepkills in the match. With your artillery and void ooze its pretty easy. And if you need dmg/distance you just pop bio-arcane barrage.


Guide Top

Fights!

In fights. Try to stay back with your bio-arcane barrage active and just spam your ulti. But dont spam it too much, because it'll cost too much mana. And when your enemies starts to retreat. Just run after them and kill! Thats what you're made for.



Thats all I have. Thanks for reading and again - feel free to comment on this. Id like some feedback and if you have some advices its ok to tell me :) Thanks for reading.
Good luck!
