Right then you lot. this is "MY GUIDE" yes thats right its my guide, so all you trolls out there telling me that this is a stupid way to play malphite just leave this page. Go troll someone else or go plank somewhere i don't really give a ****.

ok then now that thats out of the way on to the guide heres a quick intro to maplhite.
There is a world of perfect harmony, where all are part of the whole. The Monolith is the essence of all creation, and its denizens are but singular pieces of it. It is beautiful in its symmetry, and in its almost complete lack of uncertainty. The rocky beings that live there know their place and work to fulfill their duties to the fullest extent, functioning almost as a superorganism or hive. Malphite has always strived to live up to his full potential, as his own personal part of the whole, serving the role of a distinguished creature questing to enforce his people's flawless vision of order.

One day, without warning, a dimensional rift opened, and he was summoned across the cosmos to the world of Runeterra. The transition was painful and terrifying for him, as he was cut off from the song of his people and the Monolith - things that had been ever-present in him since the day he was born. He raged, trapped in the Summoning Circle, as those who had called him made their plea. Runeterra was a world that had nearly been consumed by its disharmony. It was a world that needed champions to bring order out of chaos. It was to that end that the rock-creature was summoned, so that he could aid them in this quest. Looking past his own fear and apprehension, Malphite could see that this was a respectable goal, and one in which he could participate - perhaps uniquely so. Today, as part of the League of Legends, he hammers those who would seek to upset Valoran's movement toward order, especially turning his attention to those that wield chaotic magic. Unfortunately, Malphite has also begun to change, as he has been forced to face his own profound loneliness among the world's vibrant individuality.

Beware, minions of chaos! The Shard of the Monolith has come.

no one actually reads that ******** but everyone else does it so why not.

malphite is a god if you know how to play him.

Uploaded with
notice not the games where i owned with him but the 9/8/8 game, i played with 2 ****ters. In summoners rift this would of been ok because i could of relied on the other 2 players. Just another reason why you shouldn't play twisted treeline.

On to the next subject item build, the one build i have up there will be the only build you will need as it has magic resist armor health all that good stuff. just a quick note on when you should buy things. first trip back ask yourself am i against a caster or a melle character if you are agasint a caster buy your null magic mantle **** first if you are against melle buy so you can harrass the **** out of him. next trip back do the same thing, if i am poor with only 700 gold buy because i cant farm for **** or do i have 1110 gold to buy because i farm like a pro . So on and so on.

Masteries yay.

masteries are pretty self explanatory. i don't take ardor anymore because we dont need attack speed or ability power, i take all the magic and armor defense masteries i can. and 1 point in archaic knowledge because i like to have harrassing power with siesmic shard early on.

Theres isn't much else to say about masteries just give me some "CONSTRUCTIVE" feedback please ^^

item time!

take dorans shield first its a nice starter item will boost your health up real nice and with your health quins you will have 750 hp at level 1 and be all macho macho. if you get first blood/a kill get 1k gold ask your partner to cover the lane and blue pill. buy and null magic mantle if you cant afford both do as i say in chapter 2. next trip back you start to build prioritize but if you cant afford it just get your self a . after you get your , start building your other items always prioritizing the more expensive items first.

summoner spells

ALWAYS take and
these two summoner spells are a must.

seismic shard

this skill is your main skill use when you feel threatened, use it when there team is pushing you. It's on a short cooldown so throw that ****!

brutal strikes

one of your main abilities for farming with your firecape you are doing an extra 60 damgage to everyone around you can kill entire minions waves if combined with

ground slam

this is one fun ability, use it to farm minion waves but not too much as it puts strain on your mana pool. use it to reduce carries attack speed or in combo with
to do quite a large nuke to squishy champs.


funniest ultimate EVAR just knock people up and watch them die, use it to get free kills for your teamates and yourself awsome for tower diving but dont stick around for kills if you are going to die by the turret.

Early game

early game make sure your partner isnt support or a semi tank becuase thats ******ed.
get siesmic shard at level 1 but don't use it unless you need to. at level 3 you should have level 2 siesmic shard and level 1 . here is your combo throw a at anyone who gets too close deneying gold, if they persist to farm punish them by ing them then slapping them with auto attacks until they ***** out and run away. dont go out of your away to do this but let them know your boss.

early game your mana pool is well...**** you need to conserve that mana but don't conserve in such a way that you never use it otherwise you might as well just be a rock "useless". you have remember the more you use it the more it is on cool down. TIP: try and keep your mana pool at a level where you have enough for this combo " -> -> ."

mid game

you should now have and be on your way to be making a guardians angel. you should be in fights, initiating fights with your ulti don't wait until a perfect moment to use your ulti if you can get three people in it a get a kill great! if you can ult one person and get a kill "just as great!". TIP: people will try run out of your ultimate or run away if they see you, what you can do to stop this is " -> " you just covered quite a bit of distance in a blink of an eye that didnt know what was coming. Try and soak up as much damage as possible (this doesn't mean you should be comitting suicide all the time).

Guide Top

late game

you should be finishing up your warmogs armor now atmas impaler if you got fed a little.
always try initiate the fight with your ultimate now prioritizing their carry slow him down as much as possible, trample all over there carry througout the game this will make your teams life alot easier :> TIP: if you are running away from a champion use your siesmic shardon him it will give you a considerable speed boost whilst slowing him down.
