Hello everyone welcome to my Kog'Maw build. This is an AP build. But before I get down to business, I give credits to Hell_Pet for most of the stuff I put in this build. I just changed some items.

Kog'Maw can also go an AD build but I don't know anything about those atm.

With also the fact that Riot Changed His supposed to be armor pent skill, Now its Attack speed.

I also want to say that this build can sometimes not get you kills that you would expect. So any advice, changes or anything like that, I want to hear those.


PROS

Extreme range
Has a bomb when you die, you could take down someone thats also low hp with you
Can slow people
Able to snipe people from afar with ulti
Extremely low cooldown ulti
Can take down people running away

CONS

Squishy
Doesn't have any way of escaping a gank, losing battle, etc.
Mana thirsty if spam ulti a lot.
Skills are mostly Skill shots

ITEMS

First I would start with a Sapphire Crystal and 1 health and 1 mana potion. You want to get your Tear of goddess first because Kog'maw can be mana thirsty if you spam his ulti. Since Kog'Maw's ulti is about 1 second (or lower) cooldown, You can get more mana very quickly. Then the sorcerers Boots I go next because 1. Kog'Maw is slow and 2. Magic pen is very helpful. After that, I go for Void staff for more Magic pen. Then I would go for 2 Zhonyas ring Because of all the AP it would give you. If you have a good time killing noobs, then you could forget about the second ring and go for a Mejais. The last item I would get is Lich bane because the attack +AP would kill stuff easily with his attacks. And with his Q skill giving attack speed and his W skill giving range, that would be very useful in most situations.


OPTIONAL ITEMS

Chalice of Harmony If you have a hard time keeping up with your mana.

Mejais SoulstealerIf you kill people alot without dieing

Rod Of Ages For more HP if you die too much


IN GAME

First I like to get Void ooze as my first skill because it slows, and its good combination with Bio Arcane Barrage because auto attack would do additional damage and have a better chance of going in for a kill. Soloing mid is also recommended for Kog'Maw for his quick ulti. His ulti does 150% more damage to champions than minions. Clarity is good to keep your mana good when you need it. I also have Ghost for a better get away chance. Each ulti level up increases damage and greatly increases the range it could fire too. So each level for your ulti, the more farther you can snipe!



That's the build I usually go for Kog'Maw. As I said, it sometimes wouldnt give you the kills you would expect. Please leave a comment and some advice I could use for improvement on the build. Kog'Maw costs 6300 IP in the store or 975 RP.

Thank you for reading this and Happy Sniping/Splatting!:D


Although he looks pink in the loading screen, He's actully a diffrent color in game!
