Utility: 9


Early Game:

In the beginning of the game it is vital that your team controls runes. Be sure to either get a Lizard buff on your physical DPS champions or a good ganking champion for first blood. You can also get Golem buff if your team has a powerful early game caster such as Anivia, Annie or Karthus. If you suspect that the enemy team will be doing their own Lizard/Golem, you and your teammates can surprise them by hiding in their brush until minions spawn. Be sure to drop a rally as you initiate the fight and use exhaust on their carries or fleeing champions. Dragon will also be easy to take down due to cleaver and rally.

You will want to take either the top or bottom lane because you benefit so much from being able to toss cleavers out of the brush. In addition, you can easily throw cleavers into the brush if you suspect enemy champions are hiding from you. Use your Infected Cleaver to get easy last hits on minions and constantly harass your opponents. Masochism is also a very useful farming tool.

If an enemy champion gets too close to you, hit him with an Infected Cleaver and Masochism combo to deal a significant amount of damage. If the other enemies are weary of you (they should be) and stay out of your melee range, toss cleavers at them slightly to the left or right. You always want to lead your target because chances are he will try to juke your cleaver tosses. By throwing to the right or left, there is a 50/50 chance he will move into your cleaver.

Once you hit level 6, you should attempt to gank enemy champions and begin controlling dragon. Infected Cleaver deals brutal damage to dragon due to its large amount of health and you should take advantage of this. When ganking a champion, hide in the river and pop your ultimate for the increased move speed. Start off with a cleaver and activate Burning Agony. Use exhaust and Masochism when it is up and your enemy should fall very quickly.

Make sure you or your teammates ward key locations such as river, dragon and runes. If the enemy has a stealth hero be sure to buy vision wards for your lanes.

Mid Game:

During the mid game phase, you will want to continue ganking and begin pushing towers. Masochism will help you push down towers very quickly and you should also have a Warmog's Armor at this point. Continue to dragon and control neutral buffs with your teammates to gain a huge advantage over your enemy team. At this point you will want to begin farming for your Stark's Fervor / Aegis of the Legion to improve your team's survivability during battles.

I suggest using your ultimate before you enter a team fight. Chances are, when the enemy sees a Mundo with Burning Agony running into the fray, someone is going to throw a stun/disable at you. Therefore, it is imperative that you already have Sadism on because it might be the only chance you get. Run immediately for their heavy damage dealers, such as a physical carry like Twitch or an AoE caster like Fiddlesticks. Toss an Infected Cleaver right in their face and attempt to take them down as quickly as possibly with the help of Exhaust. You will also want to plant a Rally near your team at the start of a team fight.

End Game:

At this point, you should have your core build and you will be utilizing the same strategy during team fights that you used earlier in the game. However, your opponents may have an executioner's calling later in the match and your regeneration will be severely crippled. It is important that you watch your health and bail out while you regenerate if your health becomes too low. You aren't like other tanks that can stun half the team or become nearly invincible with certain spells. Mundo will not be useful if he just runs in and dies too quickly. Therefore, have the main tank initiate then enter the battle with your ultimate and burning agony on. Once you see your health fall past 40%, move away a bit and see if any enemies chase you. If they do, you have done your job and your teammates can help to take them down. Once your health returns a bit and the enemies shift their focus from you, enter the fray once more.

If you are the primary tank, you will want to initiate with cleavers and try to slow a target so your teammates can pick them off easily as you enter the battle. Once again, you will run out of the battle if possible but you should be much sturdier if you optimized your tank build. I suggest only retreating if you hit less than 25% health. You may die but you will also lure a few of champions into chasing you right into the middle of your team.

Make sure if the opportunity arises that you take down Baron. Cleavers deal very good damage to him and Mundo can easily tank Nashor. Always be sure to have a ward at Baron so you can either go in for the steal or kill the weakened enemy team

IMPORTANT: If you are low on health DO NOT forget to turn off Burning Agony... or you may just commit suicide unintentionally.

Items:

Core Items:

1.Doran's Shield I usually begin the game with this and one health potion. Doran's Shield gives you better survivability than any other item early game because it provides health, armor and health regeneration. If your team expects to have a level 1 team fight, this item will definitely come in handy

2.Warmog's Armor - This will be the first item you rush to build. It adds a significant boost in both health and health regeneration, which are vital to Mundo's ability to survive and deal damage with his spells

3.Mercury's Treads orNinja Tabi - Normally, I will purchase Mercury's Treads because they work so well with Burning Agony and the current metagame. You will easily shrug off any crowd control effects that come your way with this combination. However, if the enemy team has stacked a large amount of physical damage with very few disables, then Ninja Tabi's can be very effective in conjunction with dodge seals and your masteries

Additional Items:
Sunfire Cape - Another great item to counter physical damage champions. In addition, the AoE damage this item provides stacks well with Burning Agony.
Guardian Angel - If the enemy team manages to somehow bring you down, you will be right back in the action in no time. With Mundo's incredible health regeration, you can be back at full health before the enemy team knows what hit them.
