This is an awesome guide ! but i want to make a suggestion. why dont u get regrowth pendant and blue pot instead of red crystal for early game items . this way u can stay in lane longer ?

Love the build,
i use a version of this for my dominion build. any chance youll be making a mal guide for dominion? or add a section?

Well, i use to play malphite a a lot.. always did decent on him, recently i have been playing malz/teemo/poppy.. but I decided to try your build on mal.. and here is how it turned out.


The only thing I did differently is i bout the health regen pendent first (instead of hp crystal) then bought boots/item with aoe+armor then warmog.. etc... I just feel being about to regen health and stay in lane to farm up early on rocks.. (and you get to buy a hp potion early)

Thanks for your build!

@ m4tt30
IT simply works. Clarity is a noob spell and ofc you can go around it, but... tbh, i dont want to. I dont want to carefully spend my mana, i dont want to wait for regenerations. I am always a very aggresive Malphite and i burn mana like crazy mp5 items and runes did no good for my playstyle and clarity for sure makes me an immovable object on the lane. I also usualy solo my top lane with great succes either kills or creep kill count.
Thx for the comment anyway.

@ PiccolaEngy
Thx :) have a great time playing him.

m4tt30 (1) | October 19, 2011 5:07pm
not sure why it is so high rated since it is unfinished. i feel using clarity for malphite is kinda noob, he is mana dependant but an experienced player can work around this with masteries and a philo stone. i play solo top in 60% of my ranked games and get first blood quite often. looks like it will be nice when it is finished though ill plus 1 then check out mine plz:)

@ The_lover_Tankers
I am not there to deal alot of damage. Tank is a tank. CC and damage sink.
WREQ already does ALOT of damage, and most of it is AoE.

@ DaSchweiza
Exactly how i look at it :)

@ Mustkolk666
The thing is that i dont like doubling effects. You already got a slam in your E skill so the active is a bit wasted. I also tried going for it but i simply find it a bit overrated due to the same type of active as your skill which makes it less viable.
But i must admit that it is a nicely suted item for him HP+Armor=win :) But that active excludes this item in my eyes.
1
[-]
Mustkolk666 | June 24, 2011 5:48am
I play Malphite as my main and i think Randuin's Omen should be his 2nd or 3rd big item because it is very good to use the active in early mid game right after his ult and it gives good armor for your ground slam.

But great build :)

Mustkolk.

@ ForcedBj
Well i know many ppl find Clarity an awefull spell... but i realy like it on fiew champs.
Not that i realy need anything else. I could get Fortify but i am rather offensive so that would just gimp me up. And a doran's ring will not keep my mana bar with the frequency of spamming my Q :)
1
[-]
ForcedBj | May 3, 2011 12:19am
Nice build, i have a smiliar build too. but to help with the mana problems early game, get dorans ring as your first item instead so you can eliminate clarity and get another summoner spell to help your team.

@ Milchh
Those are realy realy realy nice words from you. Thx to this kinds of comments it makes me follow up on making more and more and better guides.
I am glad you picked this guide as weapon of choice for your tanking.
Once again thank you very much for such nice and warm comment.

Milchh | April 10, 2011 7:12pm
I've won nearly every single game the last two days, and I have to say, on my end -- it was due to this guide. I've been playing Alistar a lot lately, especially after I played a few games with Malphite and just couldn't use him. Recently, I've been focusing more on Armour and MR rather than HP... so I was quite happy to find a build for Malphite that has a ridiculous amount of Armour and MR, even when the mid game starts.

I will owe it to your guide that has actually made me an incredibly better player, actually. I don't know why, but when you learn how to tank, everything else becomes clear.

Keep up the good work, DEWO :)

@ Lazukin
Thx :) Hope you had fun with him since i find him the most fun2play tank of them all.

@ Rares88
Well I have mao idea build still there. I need to play him a bit more after changes before i recreate it.

@ VinnyPage
I take Warmogs mainly for shield AND HP REGEN. It lets you farm minions without loosing any HP at all. Even jungle without loosing the shield. From what you suggested i would rather go for Abysal scepter rather than Hourglass. It is way too costy and you wont use the active anyway. Even Rabadon is better for pure AP if you get ignored too much.
1
[-]
VinnyPage (1) | April 2, 2011 9:17am
i know that warmog and sunfire works really good, but have you ever tried RoA or Zhonya's Hourglass?? it can provides hp/mana/ap really fast and zhonya's is the only ap/armor item, depending on the other team it can be really good, or is it too expensive?

Great build though.

DEWO (495) | March 29, 2011 2:17am
For sure he is one of the most fun ones due to his ridiculous burst damage XD

I like playing shen also that i got recently, smaller burst but more constant :)

DEWO (495) | March 28, 2011 3:12am
@ Adonikam
Hehe :) Alot of ppl hate clarity :/ tbh i dunno why. It helps even in late-midgame. Malphite shard is very costy, and coz of that you will do 3-4 shards and go totaly oom.
As i start with Ruby crystal i dont have cash for pots unfortunatly and i dont like to be a passive maplhite. I tried manaregen runes but this was simply not enaugh. And if i go a bitsy more mana in the begining i am falling back at defensive stats.
Also i like to rush sunfire for farming purpouses. Mainly for the Golem killing.
Also with sunfire you can stand in a minion wave and slam to get lots of gold without loosing much mana or time.
Frozen gives CDR and nice Armor boost that will get your damage even bigger.
Try the build it realy works. My friends ask me to carry-tank for them with Malph ;p
1
[-]
Adonikam (162) | March 26, 2011 6:53am
Damn man but I hate Clarity, can't you just run mana regen seals and/or glyphs. Really not a fan of your items either. The way I see it is build Aegis->Banshee's Veil->Sunfire Cape. but that's just me I've never really gotten into Frozen fart.
1
[-]
DEWO (495) | March 15, 2011 3:38am
@ Kirluu
Maybe but it comes to Boots/Sunfire/Warmog always and than just pick either FoN or Thorn.
It is very simple and very viable on nearly every setup.
1
[-]
Kirluu (52) | March 12, 2011 1:33am
Maybe instead of listing all viable items in the beginning, you should make different sets for which foes you meet? :)
But yeah. Guide itself is good, and well explained ^^

DEWO (495) | March 7, 2011 2:55am
@ Subside
Well i dont need HP pots when you have your shield. Its like having a pot every 16s when the shield replenish.
Catalyst built into what? Banshee? Nah... i prefer going armor and HP. More pushing and damage powah.

Mana problems in midgame? Got Sunfire? Go for blue buff :P
1
[-]
Subside | March 4, 2011 7:58am
Great guide, I've been playing malphite a lot this week (f2p week) and have tried out a lot of different things, and I must most of this build is amazing. However, from my experience I think it's best to start out with a sapphire crystal with 2x health potions and then rushing a catalyst. Starting out with a ruby crystal might be good in theory because of his passive shield, but having two health pots is so much better.

After catalyst I basically follow this guide except for getting a glacial shroud after Warmog's, though sometimes I will avoid doing this if the other team doesn't have much melee. But it REALLY helps with mana problems.
1
[-]
DEWO (495) | February 24, 2011 5:30am
I might agree, but the issue stays through whole game tbh. And catalyst is only good early game when you lvl up quite frequently.

I tried Catalyst for banshee later on. Still prefered Clarity :) it is usefull for my teammate as well :)

[-]
Booshido (70) | February 21, 2011 2:28pm
Mana problem is solved by rushing Catalyst the Protector then just take

DEWO (495) | February 4, 2011 12:57am
well it is listed in the item list but as one of the last items.
Why. Well the bubble isnt that much needed since CCes dont hurt you much. The damage is mitigated anyway, mana comes from clarity and/or blue buff that you should try getting as soon as you get Sunfire done. HP is not much needed coz of quite early Warmogs. Magic resist is better from FoN and FoN gives you great synergy with Warmogs. So everything a banshee can give you is already covered by better items exept bubble that as i said is something you can totaly ignore. If ppl waste CCes on you... than they should die soon after by your carries :)

Also... MR <<<< AR! AR = DAAAAMAAAAAGE!! RAAAAAAWRRRR! and i play a very offensive Malphite style... very often if not always carrying my team... as a tank :P
1
[-]
GigaTV | February 3, 2011 9:47am
just a question.
why no banshees veil?
I really like to get in early-midgame cause of the mana, great anti magicshield (+your passive is better) and magicresist on malphite

DEWO (495) | January 24, 2011 2:22am
Well if they ban Malph... than it is something wrong :P, they should ban Morde/Amumu/Ramm, Malph was nearly never banned in my games ;p

Hi!

Interesting build. I also have a Malphite build. Check it out via my profile.
1
[-]
DEWO (495) | December 9, 2010 2:24am
I like to harras and spam my shard. You never know when a teamfight will break through from that slow, its always good to have.
I dont find the need of ghost (coz i have my shard) i dont feel the need of ignite (specialy after newest patches), I dont like utility spells like Clairvoyance or Fortify. Heal is way overrated. Exhaust is ok but tbh i have shard for that and i dont need blind :) Me+Thornmail are best friends :)

That leaves my choice on Clarity. Always usefull for me and team.
But as i always say, it is the most personal choice of all things in build. Depends highly on person skills and preferences.

[-]
osdmtp | December 8, 2010 11:22am
Nice build but i dont think that clarity is good for tank build.i played tank build and never used the clarity :) about the Killer build its nice because its so terrible when the enemy is at 100 health and u cant use a skill to kill him :)

Skywhicker | December 2, 2010 11:57pm
For fun (in a custom game) I followed the DPS build, but instead of turning the last BF sword into a Black Cleaver, I turned it into a second Bloodthrister, and I easily SOLO'D BARON. It was awesome! :D

P.S. Crits were about 1600dmg

[-]
Dotter (169) | November 30, 2010 1:35am
Good build, I might try Malphite as DPS. :) - +1 from me.
However I do think that Randuin's is a must if you play Malphite as a tank because of the slow. It will make the other team much easier to kill and tank afterwards.

RunningWontHelp (18) | November 12, 2010 9:49am
This is a superb build, I'm on a 10+ winning spree with awesome final scores (tank)! I like that you added 2 sections of malphite. I've never seen a malphite dps, and when I tried to play him as dps my team raged at me for picking the dps way of him.
I just love how tank malphite facerolls trynda and other heavy AD champs, especially after possesing thornmail. Vs heavy AD's I go with thorn as my first item after the crystal+boots. Quite funny to see twitch going; "WTF just killed me" - "You killed yourself mate". Although I would like to say that malphite tank is probably the best tank in the 3v's map in my opinion, not to mention his awesome support damage. Q+E takes out 50% of squishies health, and by then they start to back out.
+1 Thanks for a great build not to mention all your guides i've used:)

I will swap Warmog for Sunfire anyway.
ATM i am focused on WW guide, but i'll take my tanking role and get some info on Malphite also.

@ lennyisonfire
New malady is not an option tbh. We want to focus on our AD not Mpen. Skills are a support to your killing. My choice would be Stark now.

[-]
lennyisonfire | October 26, 2010 2:26pm
Been looking forward to playing malphite for a while after I read your build on him. Just one question, for DPS malphite, (with the malady change) would you still suggest getting malady as his second item? you lose out on the lifesteal but now you gain AP and it makes your ult and shard hit harder.

DEWO (495) | September 15, 2010 2:19am
Unless Alistar gets buffed, i dont think i will make one.
If i feel the urge to play him i mainly go for support not tanking mode so getting
Aegis of the Legion
Innervating Locket
Soul Shroud
Frozen Heart if i want to be more tanky
or AP Aura items like:
Will of the Ancients
Abyssal Scepter

hope i helped.

Nice build! I use this whenever I play Malphite, and always go tank. Somehow I end up with the best KD everytime, better than DPS, and I don't even try to steal kills. The tank is very effective because of that armor. +1!

DEWO (495) | September 5, 2010 11:18pm
I will agree that he is a tough tank specialy for the carry type of dpsers, but the dps build is very fun also :) I just love the mid game farming extravaganza :) At the point of getting 1st BF you are already a creep lawn mower.

I did some tests already and update will come as soon as he is not free and i can peacefully play Normal games without getting annoying mirrors :)

That buff he got was for sure a great stuff for him and he is again playable :)

It's like second ground slam... and every one is always slow near malphite. Always.

Its hard in the begining but when you get your 1st BF its getting ALOT better.

On the ArP issue. The amount you have from runes/masteries should be enaugh. You will get the black cleaver waaaay later. Crits should do the work also. With the splash damage and scaling of BS it's just something you dont care about. In meantime of killing squishies you will probably splash some damage to the tank as well so you will get him a bit lower also and so on. I wouldn't care about ArP besides runes/masteries.

I'm a big fan of Malchite and I use both DPS and DEF builds according to the situation. I really love the DPS build myself but I was wondering about something I've yet to be able to test.

Is ARM PEN worth it to some degree or is the BS scaling so dramatic that it offshoots the need for it? I was considering going with Last Whisper after my first B.F. Sword when I'm up against a large Fighter/Tank party.

I've never actually made it to the Phantom Dancer thus far. Win or Lose, I've yet to see a match last past the third BF sword (no chance to even upgrade them). DPS Malphie just tears things to shreads. ;)

@ Lionheart

I have to update this guide to the newest patch notes and test out new ideas that i accualy have, but i dont have that much time to do so, too many guides you know that makes too much stuff to test and post on edited guide.
On frozen mallet. With shard the passive will make it less usefull since if you slow down your opponent with frozen mallet you will steal way less MS than without the mallet. So slow is totaly not nice to see imho (at least what i tested) If i would like to go for some HP on dps build i would go 100% for Soul Shroud. Mana regen he needs and CDR in an aura is very nice for him. And all that + 520HP is enaugh imho.
BF's are core since the BS scales just insanely with them and PD is for soooooo much needed AS (Malphie is kinda slowish on AS). But i will consider it and test it for sure. Thank you for comment and feedback!

Have you considered using a Frozen Mallet on the dps Malphite, either in place of the phantom dancer or one of the BF Swords? The large hp bonus could make you considerably less squishy against many foes and the slow effect would make you even more difficult to escape.

All in all though, great build. I started using it recently to good results.

Good guide, though changes to the game made your item section inaccurate, could you update it please?

-Aegis only affects champions from the tool tip.
-Does BS passive still applies on-hit effects on splashed creatures?

Fixed, for 4th time or sth :/ they are changing those damn pic links all the time :P they are saving on bandwidth or wtf?

DPS Malphie is cool even on lvl 30. One of the best lane pushers and best ingame creep farmer if you did a bit of killing earlier. But unfortunatly he requires alot more effort on killing than standard dps chars. But hard = fun for me at least :P Just get a stunner as a laning partner and you are g2g. His AD scaling with Brutal strikes is insane. Splash damage helps here too :P

Try it and play it safe :P

found a flaw in your skill build, you have seismic shard maxed at level 8, fastest lvl you can max it is level 9, great build.

DEWO (495) | June 9, 2010 1:09am
You can play as ******ed op Shen if you want to tank 5 ppl and still do ALOT of damage.

You are doing damage with Ulti+Slam than u use Brutal Strikes. Splash damage and the dps is not THAT bad tbh. If you desperatly need damage you could always get Martred Bloodrazor or Atma Impaler.
Both with Armor and quite good damaging ability.

Dont forget Thornmail. And mobs around that you accualy buff with your damage.

The last but not least thing are just Sunfires... get 2 of those and you can burn a bit :)

Malphie is a good tank but needs a team. If your team does 0 damage... than it's a fail anyway, and if you want to kill, than go with dps malphie :) He has a huge potential.

I can't seem to do any damage when it comes to tanking spec. Although, slam is great, I can't seem to do that much DPS after the slam. Do I run around like a maniac and wait for slam again because the cd is pretty damn long, especially when you're the main target. You can't always rely on Slam, but I do live forever though. You're pretty much useless if you can't do DPS and the only thing you can do is tank. The ultimate is so weak now. WTF, did they nerf Malphite? I used to own with him. He was my first champion I used and i'm trying to go back to him again, but failed many time trying to kill. Yes, I know.. i'm a tank... there must be a way I can do damage while being a tank.

DEWO (495) | June 7, 2010 11:24pm
dodge (if you are not jax) can only neglet physicals.
Armor is reducing that damage and also boosts my Ground Slam. Phantom dancer, well if you want to be more dps'ish and still maintain tank stats, it's ok.

Maybe it's my personal preference of things that dont occur by luck. I use dodge on dps'ers tho. I will look into that ofc and test it.

xwave2 | June 7, 2010 3:56pm
Lol, it's just funny because this one player was telling me "Stop dodging!" and I literally kept on dodging. The dodge is pretty nice, since you put "dodge" points in the mastery, might as well make good use of it adding more dodge. Runes/Mastery/Boot.. Hell, if you want more dodge add Phantom. It works like wonder.

DEWO (495) | June 7, 2010 3:04am
I like armor from runes for early game. On tank spec you are lvling Slam quite frequently and the damage it deals is quite big. I must agree that later on, dodge>armor but i like to get some kills early game :)

Its always nice when you see ppl fear you and run away from 1v1 fights.

Thank you for comment.
Runes/Masteries are a bit personal preferences i guess.

xwave2 | June 7, 2010 2:24am
I rather use dodge runes over armor runes. It work so much better. My Build is same like yours for tank, but i'm using different runes. Armor/Dodge/Magic Resist and for Quin are Armor/Dodge/Magic Resist. It works out nicely actually.

DEWO (495) | May 5, 2010 12:42am
oh thx for the notification. i had 18 points in shard when i was building this guide just to fill it up and make it ok later on, guess you cant trust even yourself :)

Well as any good carry dps (melee) you are very squishy at start. To counter that you can start of with building:--->
with buying ruby crystal 1st.

But imho slowing is not nessesary with shard doing that work.

Also @ the exhaust. Shard and run off or use your ultimate as a escape tool. Its not THAT nessesary to kill, but it is a great tool for DPS Malphie to run away.
That is why on dps mode we dont use it as initiate tool but as an execute move, or run away when things start to get heavy.

Thank you for comment and pointing out that little glitch in Skills ;)

I tried the dps build. Finally a dps Malphite that works! Well kinda.
I find that you are so squishy early game with the dps build that if you get exhausted, you're dead. >.<
Oh and by the way, I think you can only get your first level 5 skill at level 9, not 8. o.0 Better fix that one..

DEEEEEEEEEEEWOOOOOOOOOOOOO i just tore face with your build mate! the DPS IS GENIUS. I went.. well lates say closer to 8-2-11.. though that can be due to the fact that they fixed matchmaking and i was queued with a lvl 15 who hadnt played since beta :) good times. Sadly though, the new katarina makes no difference, AP is still better, now she just takes less damage :)
