My task on this build is to get more people to play the glorious Kog'Maw
This is my first build and I just put it together, I will work on more chapters, etc. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Thanks to Seth and SirPheles for the help

- Upon dying, Kog'Maw starts a chain reaction in his body which causes him to detonate after 4 seconds (he can move in this time), dealing 100 + (25 x level) true damage to surrounding enemies. Kog'Maw will gain additional movement speed upon entering this state.
I love this ability, the fact that after you die you can exact revenge has always had sexual appeal to me.

- (Passive) Increases attack speed (Active) Kog'Maw launches a corrosive projectile which deals magic damage and reduces the target's armor and magic resistance
I never really use this for some reason but it is very helpful when taking down armor and the passive is amazing.

- (Active): For 6 seconds, Kog'Maw's attacks gain additional range and deal a percentage of the target's maximum health as magic damage (max 100 damage to monsters).
This is one of the best abilities in the game if you ask me. It deals damage according to their maximum health! I MEAN HOLY ****. This can take down Mundo in a matter of hits, late game they shred almost everyone.

- (Active): Kog'Maw launches a peculiar ooze which deals magic damage to all enemies it passes through and leaves a trail for 4 seconds which slows enemies who stand on it.
This is pretty much a version of Singed's sludge but it does damage too! Now I only take this once because it isn't very useful

- Kog'Maw fires a living artillery shell at a great distance dealing damage and revealing targets for 4 seconds. (150% bonus damage to champions).
This RedRum of an ult has highly sexual factors and will poop on anyone. It's range is amazingly high and does a fair amount of damage.

- Perfect for any AD carry and excellent for Kog'Maw
- If you can get this early I will promise you kill, unless you suck hard.
- Perfect combo of Attack Speed and Crits
- As soon as you get this you can start massively regaining health.
- This is a great item for the sheila and the attack damage.

Now, at the end point you can choose.

(Good overall)
(Great for Heavy AD)
(Hard CC)
(Heavy Armor)
(Just to brag that you are so good :P)
Pick one and have fun!

Twisted Treeline
In TT you can go two ways, top or bot. I usually go bot but you can choose, it doesn't matter that much.
Summoners Rift
I prefer bot here but top is fine. Try not to go mid or top, you want tanky/regular backup.

Kog'Maw Build

Kog'Maw's Amazing Lifesteal

Now, the 20% lifesteal doesn't seem like much although with his massive attack speed you can regain health massively on minions.

One of our teammates left in this one ^ (Still got 22 kills! :D)

This build is perfect for tearing your enemy to shreds and then spitting noxious goo all over their dead bodies. I really hope you enjoyed my first build and please up vote and leave a comment! Have a good day -Jin
