Introduction

Welcome to my Malphite guide
This guide will show you how I play malphite.
This is only against a ballanced team if they have much ad then get more armor like thornmail. if they have much Ap get more magic resist. if you die too much get guardian's angel.

Summoner Spells

As Summoner spells i take Flash and Ghost because they can be used for Escaping and for Chasing i mostly take this by any champion

Optional
Clarity = Great for harrasing since malphite has low mana early on but i don't need it to much
Clairphoyance = if your support doesn't have this it can be usefull
Exhaust = you have a knock up and slow already not that usefull but can be good for your team
Fortify = Great for your team to protect turrets but has long cooldown
Heal = Great early game useless late game
Smite = if you go jungle but this is not a malphite jungle guide
Teleport = to help in teamfights if you go solo top

NOT to take
Cleanse = you have mercury threads and flash and ghost for escaping already
Revive = ... No comment
Rally = Who takes Rally?!?! nowadays just not good overall
Ignite = let someone else take it remember you're a tank you won't get many kills.

Pros / Cons

Pro's
Great iniciator due to his ultimate ( hope i spelled it correct if not please comment in the comment box )
Great harraser with his q
Good farmer with his e and sunfire cape

Con's
mana depended in other words without mana he is useless if nobody needs blue buff then get it.

Team Work

When you are going to use your ultimate make sure that your team is ready for it because with no good teamwork his ultimate is not that good but when your team is ready for it then it's most likely going to be an ace or 3 or kills. and Remember to try to knock up the carries like ashe and annie etc so they won't be able to do anything.


Guide Top

Farming

Malphite's farming early on is not that good but later on around mid game when you should have your sunfire cape you can use your e and sunfire's passive to kill them remember how more ad the enemies have how better for malphite because your e scales with armor.

Jungling

Malphite is able to jungle but i don't jungle with him but of course stonewall008 does http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljOc4tPvOOQ Credit goes to stonewall008 his runes and masteries are in the description. and yes it does still work after those nerfs on his passive. this is how malphite should gank and jungle and there is epic music inside http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCE-GzWKcCA credits goes again to stonewall008
