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.
Hey guys this is my first guide for mobafire.com, anyway i like to play kog maw i have had some success with him in the past so i just thought that i should show u my build and see what u think..
Pro's and cons
Can dish out a ton of damage
he looks cool as :D
good range with his W
I take armor pen marks, armor seal, attack speed glyphs, and armor pen quints. this setup gives me some armor pen to take down tanks that may become a threat, and some attack speed to farm efficiently.
i take 21-9-0 i focus on attack damge and attack speed in offence tree, and armor and health in defence tree
On kogmaw last hitting minions is almost an essential, farming is really important it gives u a lot of gold and also if u harass ur opponent it can give u a big lead on them whether u are in mid lane or bot lane
Kogmaw is mostly used to target the squishier targets at the back of the pack try and avoid the Alistars, and shens. just work ur way around them and go for targets liek graves, ashe, and lux. this will really help ur team win the big team fights if there carrier arent doing anything. BE CAREFUL though other AD ranged will try and take u out of the picture also
The items vary depending on what team u are vsing example: if u are vsing a tanky champ such as udyr, panth. that have a lot of armor then u might consider getting a last whisper just to give u that bit more damage to them so they dont cause too many troubles. another example if u are vsing a champion like Yi who is super fed, then u might consider a thornmail for that extra survivability.
Flash and Ignite are my main summoners but u can use other such as Ghost or exhaust for getting away more consistently, i prefer flash because u can do it over walls and then they have no hope of getting u unless they also flash. CV would never recommend on kogmaw, that is more of a support spell, heal could be useful. Promote never seen the point of that spell at all.
with my skill order i try to get my W maxed first then my E, reasons for the W is because well it give u that bit extra range to farm a little easier without being harassed. and e is also useful for escaping or gaining some distance.
Hey guys thanks for looking at my build i am open for suggestions as i said this is my first build i have made so far i would like to get a lot better at it, but i can only do that with ur help also u can add my League of legends account if u like, it is Ipawnzunoob, i am on the North American server, would like to have a game with some of u guys. please give me some feedback and thanks for checking it out Peace out brohomes
