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.
Who is SessionS?
I'm new here on MOBAfire !
This is actually my first guide, I know it doesn't quite have the same breadth of knowledge that some have. I play ADC // Support roles for my LoL team, and one of my favorite things in league is the theory crafting. I will update this will positioning guides and such, but for now enjoy the executive version.
I was a bit pressed for time. But I hope you enjoy.
Comment below for what champions you guys want guides for next.
I appreciate you taking the time to hear what I had to say about Kog'maw.
Upcoming ADC Guides - Vayne, Ezreal, Caitlyn, Draven, Miss Fortune.
Upcoming Support Guides - LuLu, Sona, Taric, Nami, Janna, Zyra.
8 Flat Attack Damage Runes to win early fights and help with last hitting minions
1 Red critical chance rune, for early fights levels 1-3
9 Armor - Every ADC should have this
9 flat Magic Resist - Help when mid comes to gank, as well protect against early game Sona or LuLu
3 Flat Attack Damage Quintessences. Just because more damage is even better lol.
Long Sword // 2 Potion Start
Basic Boots // Vampiric Scepter first back.
Bilgewater Cutlass - Lifesteal // Sustain // Active Magic Damage and Slow effect.
Blade of the Ruined King - USE THE ACTIVE TO AVOID GANKING HERO'S. USE ACTIVE TO SECURE KILLS ON FLEEING ENEMIES
Zeal - Movement Speed // Critical // Attack Speed
Runaan's Hurricane - Normally I don't use this item, BUT with Kog's BIO arcane barrage, i want to spread the effect across the whole team. So by the time you get this item you should be just entering the team battle phase right about when laning phase ends.
Phantom Dancer - Finish the zeal into this, move faster, attack faster. Enhance BOTRK and Bio Arcance Barrage by being able to attack faster.
B.F Sword - Time for damage, now that your scaling hard against the other team, DO NOT STOP AUTO ATTACKING. AutoAttack = Bestfriend
Infinity Edge - Capitalize on your critical hits, and deal a massive amount of physical damage.
Last Whisper - If the Enemy has tons of armor, get last whisper and shred them.
Warmog's - If you are being targeted, consider Warmog's armor to give yourself a fighting chance.
With Kog's bio arcane barrage, and a Blade of the Ruined King, you can chunk any hero down to nothing based on percentage damage.
Bio arcane barrage is your best friend as Kog'maw due to the fact that it will take percentage based HP off a champion PER HIT. Meaning the more health they have, the more damage you deal to them. Bye bye tanks... LMAO
Void Ooze will prevent ganks, or secure kills.
Living Artillery - Use this as much as possible. The range is incredible, and can be used to finish off a fleeing opponent, or keep an enemy zoned from creep score.
Caustic spittle is good, but not as beneficial to Kog as the other two skills.
When dealing with a TANKY team, use this build.
