Dr. Mundo Build
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.
Mundo DPS Offtank
Most builds you see posted around are DPS Mundos, Tank Mundos, but not hybrid Tank/DPS Mundo. Those builds are good, but they have issues. DPS Mundo is not durable at all, and can be downed quickly even through his ultimate. Tank Mundo is tough but easy to ignore. Mundo has very little CC, so he can't tank an enemy carry as champions like Shen or Rammus can. Let them tank. Go Semi-Tank.
Semi-tank Mundo takes the best from the two builds. A lot of life so he can best utilize his Ultimate and Passive Skills and high Attack Speed to hit hard with Masochism. He doesn't get a lot of Armor/Magic Resist, but hey, he is only part tank.
Enough words for the Intro. Let's get to the build.
Spells, Masteries and Runes
My favorite spells are Exhaust and Ignite. Exhaust is useful CC for Mundo, and is helpful both for shutting down a carry and hunting the guy with the 500hp left. Ignite is also very useful for dealing more damage in range, especially early game. When used correctly in can net you some more kills.
Other useful spells include Flash, Ghost and Teleport. Maybe even Heal.
Don't take Cleanse, Clairvoyance, Clarity, Rally, Smite or Revive. They are all useless for Mundo.
Note: Clairvoyance is a pretty neat spell in most occasions. But Mundo can use his Cleaver to check bushes and stuff. Let someone else take it.
For masteries I go 9-21-0
I get Archaic Knowledge to max my Infected Cleaver's damage, since it will be my primary damage source until Late Game.
After that I go full defensive tree. Mundo tends to concentrate fire, especially when his Ultimate is active.
For runces I take:
Greater Mark of Desolation x9 This + Starks + Youmuu's is a lot of Armor Penetration.
Greater Seal of Evasion x9 Dodge is very useful on any champion, plus it triggers Nimbleness.
Greater Glyph of Celerity x6 and
Greater Glyph of Focus x3 This way the CD Reduction starts from Level 1, Plus you don't lose much. And Late Game you will have Spirit Visage and Youmuu's.
Greater Quintessence of Desolation x3 Same as the Marks.
Start by getting a Regrowth Pendant and a Health Potion. He may have a lot of regen himself, but this lets him truly spam Infected Cleaver. Plus you want to rush Warmog's.
As soon as you can finish Warmog's Armor recall and get it. It's important to get it fast so you can fill its stacks early on. Boots of Speed and Spirit Visage are next. Visage is an incredible item on Mundo, as he benefits from all it's stats and passive.
After that get Stark's Fervor. It gives you Attack Speed, Armor Penetration and Lifesteal, you want all three. So:
Boots of Speed (feel free to pick your boots, I usually go gor Mercury's Treads)
Now on it all gets situational. I usually get Youmuu's Ghostblade and Guardian Angel. Both are great items on any champion and Mundo benefits a lot from them. Just remember to activate Youmuu's.
Other great item choices are:
Phantom Dancers , maybe x2
Banshee's Veil (Note: Mana is a wasted stat, but Banshee's Veil passive is awesome)
And pretty much any decent item. After the Stark's is completed Mundo is unstopable.
This is pretty much it. I won't talk about strategies or tips in this guide as they are explained flawlessly in many others. Ask me anything you want explained.
And always remember to have fun playing; it's just a game after all.
