Not Updated For Current Season
Hello everyone, my first time playing mundo i used this build and i have not lost a game with him. I'm not going to sit here and say you will be able to do this by following this build because you're not me and you probably don't play like me. Good luck and enjoy the build.
Firstly i have not included a FULL item build because any good tank knows that their gear will change every game based on the enemy team. However, here are some of your choices
Start off by getting a dorans shield and a health potion. These will allow you to harras your oppents.
On your first trip back buy a spirit visage and your first boots. spirit visage is the only item that is always in my build because it helps greatly with Mundo's ult.
After you have these items look press TAB and look closely at what your oppents are buying and what characters they are. If you're fighting a team with alot of AP buy merc treads and a force of nature. If you're fighting a team with alot of AD buy the boots you like most and thornmail. Regardless of the other team i usually end up with Spirit visage, merc treads, and two sunfire capes.
Early game haras and kill
Mundo can deal alot of damage with masochism and burning agony so use them wisely. Haras the enemy with cleavers (Q) and if they make the mistake to get close to you use masochism(E) and start smackin back. If your lane mate jumps on the enemy use burning agony(W) ignite and cleavers(Q) aswell to make sure the oponent dies. If your health is dropping quickly use sadism (R) if your 6 if not you can sit there keep smackin and hope for the best (masochism will most likely kill the oponent before you die because it gets better as you loose health) or turn tail and haul ***.
Early game defence
If the enemy decides to attack your lane mate help him out by slowing the enemy and using all your abilities EXCEPT sadism(R) to try and scare off your oponents. or you guys are just getting out harased sit near a turret use cleavers to last hit and haras. If you think you can get a kill you probably can so go for it.
By this point if your team may be grouping up for pushes and team fights. If they are then go with them and get your purple *** to the front of the group. Use your abilities as you see fit and initiate the fight if a squishy come too close. do this by hitting him with a cleaver(Q) and rushing in. Once your at about 50% hp use sadism(R) and start to focus your DPS on a low squishy run through the enemy if needed but don't get crazy you're mundo but you can be killed. After the first enemy drops focus on the next and the next always going for the lowest health unless that guy is already in safety.
Early game you want to go top or bottom, personallly i play very aggressive as mundo and i take a laning partner that can nuke or do a high amount of burst damage at a low level. Once in the lane you should be able to toss cleavers (Q) at your opponent and still be able to last hit. If one of your oponents gets a little too cocky just throw a cleaver (Q) at him ignite him and start beatin on him. This will normally scare him off or get you a kill. By level 6 you should have enough gold to buy your spirit visage and boots -if you don't its fine-.If your lane is doing well and you have no need to go back don't. take the tower or get some more kills.
Mundo's mid game is very dependent on the game. If a team is giving alot of ground to another hop in that lane and start kickin ***. If its a fairly even game and your team is successfully ganking stay in your lane and continue with the early game strat.
In this phase of the game regardless if your positive or negative you should have atleast 3k hp and 4 out of 6 items. Once Mundo reaches this hes nearly impossible to kill. Gather your team and start getting into team fights and pushing the lanes.
I hope this build works for you as it has for me. If you feel i have left something out please post it.
