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.
my name is newShinigami.
I'm 17 years old. I play this game since months, but I'm not a pro gamer. My Guides are "unusual" ^^. My Accounts Level is 28, but im playing better than some Level-30-Gamer. I'm mostly playing with people with Level 30, and if I want to test a champ, I normally play a Cooperative game. I'm German, so my English will not be flawless, sorry for that.. :)
My Ingame-Name for Contakt: newShinigami.
This Guide is my first Guide. It Contains my favorite Champs, the Creatures of the void. They can be played at every Lane and Job. I will try to explain, what they do and how they can be played.
I hope, you like this Guide. Please write a comment, if you rate. :)
- Greater Quint of Destruction; Kog Maw NEEDS Magic Penetration, too! (All Skills deals MD)
- Greater Mark of Strength; AD for a better Early (Kog'Maw = Lategamer)
- Greater Seal of Alacrity; Attack Speed, will increase efficience of the "W"-Skill
- Greater Glyph of Strength AD for a better Early (Kog'Maw = Lategamer)
I can only say: Try and Change! Masteries must adapted to your Gameplay. So you can copy my Masteries, and if it does not work, change it! :)
Unique: Flash; Everey Champ of the Void needs Flash. Only Kassadin can use another Spell for Flash :D
- Heal (If you dont have a supporter on your Lane, which can heal you)
- Ignite (If you dont have a supporter on your Lane, which can deal Damage)
- Exhaust (If you dont have a supporter on your Lane, which can slow/stun/snare the Enemy)
Nothing to say. Default Boots for AD-Carries.
Zeal is a good Early-Item for most AD-Carries: Attack Speed, Movement Speed, Crit Chance, not bad :)
Will be upgradet to an Phantom Dancer in Lategame.
The most important Item for this AD-Carry. Most people say: "Manamune == USELESS"
Try to kill a non-Squishy Kog'Maw, who is spamming his Ult from an Distance, you will never like as the enemy :D
Mana Regen for Spamming Ulti, Mana for Spamming Ulti, AD for dealing damage with your Autoattacks and your ULTI. Kog'Maw is the Champ with Spam-Factor no. 1, if you have Manamune ;) So think about this Item, if you want to say something to it ;)
Kog'Maw and most of the AD-Carries are very squishy. Get this and you will get a great Amount of Health and a nice Slow with your Autoattacks.
Nothing to say. Default Item for AD-Carries
The Black Cleaver
This is the "Anti-Tank-Item". Can be replaced by "Last Whisper" or "Madret's Bloodrazor".
Kog'Maw is not easy to play, learn to use his Ulti. It is very important to use it right, with it you can take down half life with spamming without fighting, or kill the enemy, which "tries" to run away :D
Basicly 200 AD is enougth for Kog'Maw, most damage will be dealed by his Ultimate.
I will not explain the effects of his Skills. This Guide is a non-newbie-Guide. I don't think, that a Newbie can play this well, because of his Ulti-Gaming.
And his skills are explained at many many websites, so i think here is no need for it.
I will try to hold this Guide actual
Good Luck and have fun with the Lord of Spam ;)
