Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is the build i use but it is hard to explain everything. This will be edited by me later. so dont down rate it just yet.
The biggest thing to know about this Malphite build is that you will be getting about 10 kills per game along with 20 or so assists. The normal Malphite takes damage and slows and stuns, this one kills and takes damage.
In order of purchase:
Regrowth pendent and mana potion- the potion is for when you spam the enemy with your seismic shard.
Philosopher's Stone- this gives you a good health and man regen along with a much needed boost to gold.
Boots of speed- helps you kill or run... which ever you may need to do.
Thornmail- buy the items necessary for this in whatever order you like.
Sorcerer's Shoes- Malphite's spells are all magic damage these help give you a little more
damage for them all.
Heart of gold- again gold and the armor and health help you stay in longer.
Warden's mail- great armor and health regen.
Force of Nature or Guardian angel- this is up to you you will buy them both but it depends on your situation.
Randuin's Omen- this is so you can buy another item by clearing up a spot.
Last item is either Force of Nature or Guardian Angel which ever you didn't buy earlier.
1st quarter of the game
This is the most crucial part of the game. You do not need to focus creeps for your gold. Your summoner spells should be Exhaust and Heal. Every good tank can use Heal very effectively and Exhaust helps you get kills before and after you have your ulti. Go for a kill if you can get it and work with your lane mate to get them. Your skills should go Seismic shard, then ground slam, then brutal strikes and rinse and repeat adding your ulti at lvl six.
This is where you start to help your team get kills. You have your ulti and should at leas have all the items up to and including Thornmail. Just help your team where you can and take down those that do physical damage because they hurt themselves and do not hurt you very much.
3rd and 4th quarter
These two are virtually the same as the 2nd quarter except you have probably found that one enemy has made himself into a Malphite killer. He is usually a dps caster. Just stay away from him unless you have someone with you.
