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.
Kog'Maw - Most useful skill! 'W'
Kog'Maw is a dreadful enemy, with his Bio-Arcane Barrage he can auto attack with a long range and a high damage. The lower health the enemy has the more damage Kog'Maw will do.
Bio-Arcane Barrage Description:
Kog'Maw's attacks gain 130 / 150 / 170 / 190 / 210 range and deal an additional 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 % (+1% per 100 ability power) of the target's maximum Health as Magic Damage (Max: 100 Damage vs Monsters). Lasts 8 seconds.
Kog'Maw - Passive skill! - Add 1/1/0 to your score !
After Kog'Maw is dead he can move for 4 seconds, his body starts a chain reaction after dead that makes him detonate after 4 seconds. It damages 100 + (25 * LvL) to surrounding enemies.
This passive is good when u get ganked, go after damaging one of the gankers, when u know he
has low health enough and u see u dont have that much health back. Then try to die and run close by him, woops, u killed him and died. Thats style! its like adding 0/0 at your score. Though we can't do that so it will add 1/1 to your score.
Keep it at mind! It doesnt mean u should TRY to die, Keep a good position before u die.
3v3 - What is best for Kog'Maw ?
I play 3v3 what to do ?
If there is a support then you should go bot with the support, it has to be
someone who will let you get the kills and such. Cause' Kog'Maw needs early farm to be real pro.
Else go top to get the early farm easier. Remember to save some of your mana, do not use it all on minions!
15 CS or such is like a champion kill, that is why its good to have alot CS.
Farming is good, i wrote it in the chapter above. CS is a very important thing. Learning this is a step to becoming good. CS is last hiting minions. 15 CS is allmost equal to a champion kill.
Go around your minions or just stand still while your minions gets your enemies to low health, then go for the last hit. It is all about timing and patience.
Kog'Maw skills !
This is my last thing about your skills, here i will give u some link and tell u about the simple skills.
I'm not gonna tell about 'W' Bio arcane Barrage cause' ive already done that.
Passive: Increases attack speed by 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 %
Active: Kog'Maw launches a corrosive projectile which deals 60 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 (+70% of ability power) magic damage and reduces the target's armor and magic resist by 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 for 4 seconds.
Caustic spittle is not something i recommend, u will have no use of this skill at all.
Kog'Maw launches ooze which deals 60 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 (+70% of ability power) magic damage to enemies it passes through.
Additionally, it leaves a trail which slows enemies by 28 / 36 / 44 / 52 / 60 % for 4 seconds.
Void ooze is rather good, it slows people so u can take advantage of your, example: 'R' and 'W'.
Kog'Maw fires artillery from a great distance. After a 0.6 second delay, the artillery falls dealing 80 / 120 / 160 (+30% of ability power) (+0.5 per bonus attack damage) magic damage and reveals targets for 4 seconds. It deals 250% bonus damage to Champions. Each subsequent Living Artillery in the next 6 seconds costs 40 additional mana (Max 200).
Ultimate has a nice cooldown, damages a little, and is good when someone little hp stands tower.
Thanks to certain people for inspiring me!
I was inspired by alot people, actually many from Solomid inspired me.
I were also inspired by the best build as kog'maw, or the most rated one.
'Right click and win' is the build called. Well, this build isnt right click and win, or it is but its better. It is made so when u use your 'W' u will be unstopable !
Here is some links and such:
Solomid.net ! > Home page!
Dyrus > Link for dyrus livestream!
If u cant connect then goto the livestream link above!
Dyrus is a pro, many says he is unsocial. But how many knows him IRL ? He is more social than me..
A guide who inspired me to create my own build!
Please vote on my build and recommend or opposite of recommend to your friends and non-friends.
