[Patch 7.14] Gnar, The Top King

matek1207 Last updated on July 21, 2017



WORK IN PROGRESS.


Making champion match-ups, items and optimizing some old informations.




Hello everyone, I'm HG White
from EUNE and I love all marksmen + gnar <3. I still learn about league. I'll give you some tips/advices about Gnar. Maybe he is really hard to master, but after seeing this guide you should know what you're doing ^^. I love Gnar, because his playstyle is amazing and he is so cute (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:✧. Also I've made this guide (still working): Jhin, Beatiful One Shot Carry



























Pros

+ Long-range poke
+ Percentage Health damage
+ High mobility
+ Epic initiations
+ Good late game
+ Many crowd control effects
+ No mana
Gnar is a good option to carry mid/late game. He's got many ways to escape, for example Hop on ally minions, or Wallop enemy then Flash. I recommend Sion, Malphite and Jarvan IV in jungle, since V4.16, Gnar's ultimate interacts with Jarvan's ult, therefore he is amazing at a teamfight combo, other 2 options make a good initiation duo, when prepeared.




Cons

- Hard to master
- Poor early game
- Difficult mechanics
- Low-range basics
- You can't control the transformation gauge
- Very long Cooldowns
Gnar can be poked when tring to catch Boomerang Throw (45%-60% cooldown reduction). Gnar's initiate is countered by Flash or escape abilities like Katarina's Shunpo or Corki's Valkyrie.

Mastery Explanations


space


FEROCITY



Tier 1 - Fury - More attack speed.

Tier 2 - Fresh Blood - Is good mastery, because you deal (11-28) bonus damage when poking enemies.

Tier 3 - Natural Talent - I had problems when I was taking this mastery. Vampirism is good mastery as Natural Talent . Life steal + Spell Vamp VS Ad + Ap. I think this one you can choose by yourself. Gnar has both scaling so Natural looks good, but a lot of attack speed and high spell dmg so Vampirism looks good.

Tier 4 - Double Edged Sword - Increased damage dealt by 5%, but take 2,5% more damage from all source so it's good when you can poke and dodge skills.

Tier 5 - Battering Blows - 7% Armor penetration.

Tier 6 - Fervor of Battle - Gnar has got a lot of attack speed and fervor helps with longer trades. Also it works well with Hyper.

RESOLVE



Tier 1 - Recovery - Gnar's early health regen is really bad thats why I prefer Recovery than Unyielding .

Tier 2 - Tough Skin - You don't need bonus 15 movement speed in brush and river or 8+8 (mr + armor) when near ALLY TURRET, but less damage from monsters and basics sounds good.

Tier 3 - Veteran's Scars - I do prefer 50 health, but Runic Armor could be good with healing/shielding champions like Soraka, Sona, Janna, but items like Blade of the Ruined King or Warmog's Armor could be cool too.

Tier 4 - Insight - Some summoners cooldowns. Perseverance is good with mentioned above Runic Armor . Fearless could be good against high burst champs.












Runes

Greater Mark of Attack Speed

Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist

Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed

This will give you:
  • 9 Armor
  • 12,1 Magic Resist
  • 28,8 Attack Speed

About Runes:









FLASH

For better positioning in teamfights. When you are becoming Mega Gnar use Hop and bounce on your teammate or minion then use ultimate. Flash is the most prime spell in League of Legends. Everyone takes this spell, cause this is always helpful.


TELEPORT

Teleport in my opinion is essential spell for every toper. It makes you more mobility. For example you are pushing top lane and there is teamfight on bottom. You have no time for walk so you should use teleport and help your teammates.

> > >
We want to max out Boomerang Throw because it's our main damage dealer. Then Hyper as it allows you to poke HP tanks. We level up Hop last because it scales damage from HP not from attack damage. More than half players max Q then W and E at last, because it's just good combination Gnar's Skill Order.

Don't try to engage teamfights without Mega Gnar, because it would be harder without bonus ccs.
Early game try to poke and kite - mostly Mini Gnar.
Mid game use your cc and mobility to start and win teamfights - mostly Mega Gnar.
Late game try to balance poke, kite and engage, cc - Mega and Mini Gnar.

Frequently Asked


Answers



Q: Why Gnar is "TOP KING"? // Gnar has got high mobility, a lot of CC, big damage and he's very tanky.



Q: Why frozen mallet? // Slow helps a lot.



Q: Wouldn´t it be better for this heavily late game oriented champion to take scaling runes to kind of support his playstyle? // Gnar's late game is good because he does what he must for his team - tank and initiate team fights and CC enemy champions. But he's early game struggles cause of low statistics. That's why I prefer float runes.












I have to thanks my cousin and friend Monastyr from EUNE (n˘v˘•)¬. He helps me with this build.
