Introduction

This is mostly a FULL TANK BUILD, the first guide is for an attacky tank, so you can do more damage with your abilities, the second one is for MID LANE ONLY, because with that build you have a tons of ap damage but no sustain. An finally my favorite, third guide is for COMPETITIVE PLAY, is an effective full tank Build.

Masteries

This first masteries gonna give you a nice time on Top Lane, you have the mana regen, and a pretty good defense, your agro runes are just for farming, they are not for an early 1v1 situation, keep that in mind.

The second masteries, for Mid Lane, gonna give you a massive early game damage, you exchange your tankiness for gain a easy lane, against a squisky enemy.


The third masteries are for more tanky top laners, you gain a early game 50 shield, that stack with your passive, so if you want to tank your jungler his first buff, you can do it with out any fear. In Late Game, this masteries gonna help you real talk, you can receive all the damage from the enemy team and you can still go with the half of your life or more.



The forth one is a new one, I don't know much about jungle, but what I know is the Runic Shield is perfect on Malphite so you don't recievie a lot of damage against a monster.

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist

Greater Quintessence of Ability Power

Why this runes?
Because they gonna give you more AP damage on early, so you can defend your lane.
Or so you can produce TONS OF AP DAMAGE in Mid Lane to the enemy Mid Laner, they are pretty squishy, so take that advantage and spam your abilities real good.

Items

On this part of the guide I will explain why you should rush these next items depending of the buil you are going to make.


This item will give you Magic Penetration and Armor, two important things as you play as Malphite.

When you play mid lane, is very important to have CDR an a good amount of damage, this item will give you those things for just 3100, go for it now!!

This is just a BEAUTIFUL ITEM, if you are going for the full tank build, this is perfect for you, this item will give you all the damage an sustain you need.

Conclusion

MALPHITE is a great champion, maybe not the best, but if verry fun to play, I hope this guide help anyone. If you want you can check my other guides for Tanky Tops, see ya soon.
