Introduction

Hi all!

This is my first guide and i want to revive malphite as a great jungler who comes over your enemies like an avalanche when played well. For long times Malphite got an instaban just like Amumu or Blitz. But now times have changed and people ban other champs more often. This is your chance to lead Malphite to the battlefield!

At first you have to know that Malphite is a tanky support jungler. You won't carry a game or get 20 kills. You won't kill often, but in the end there won't be a kill without your assist because Malphite is a teamfight beast! Wanna rock the jungle? Read this guide and gave fun!

As malph in the jungle you won't do much damage. Just concentrate on your role as a tank and help your team win the big teamfights with your incredible cc. Don't think of a killing spree, you are a support tank.

Runes

Tanky, tanky, tanky and a bit of penetration. Malphite has high attack stats at the beginning so just use penetration runes. You will start in the jungle and therefore you need armor. Later you lack of magic resist because your enemy will often get at least one heavy ap champ. Now you will be happy with your scaling magic resist.

Items

There is not much to say. Go for health, armor and magic resist and you will be fine.

Skill Sequence

Your passive makes you strong against the camps. Just wait until your shield is ready and then engage.
At level onewill be best for you as it has a good damage output on several enemies.
Next will be as it helps you to get the camps down faster.
Reaching level four means maxing because it is your poke and gank spell.
Of course max whenever you can. Malphite's ult is one of the best in the whole league.

Team Work

You are the tank and it is your task to initiate. Use your ult and the fight starts. Focus the opponent's adc and try to shut him down. You may die but your team will win. Good Job Malphite!
