So you want to play mundo? there are a few things that you need to know and this guide will fill you in for at least half of it.
So first off, you have to know that Mundo is a Doctor. Yes... a doctor. Not a butcher, but a doctor.
Mundo is not invincible but damn close to it.
Mundo does what he pleases.

There aren't many champions in LOL that have gone to college and made their way as a err successful doctor.

Note: This build does not guarantee Pentakills.

ALL HP dont even worry about it just do it.

just kidding but really. you can use any type of runes youd like.
-Flat armor seals are nice
-HP quints are great. you know what to do.
-Mpen Marks for the Cleavers are freaking great but i find that ArmPen helps more. So its your opinion on this one.
-The Glyphs can be MR, HP/Lvl, Hp Regen whatever you can afford because runes can be a pain in the ***.

So the runes are totally up to you.
IMO Mundo is one of the few characters that dont really depend on the right runes.
He is a Great Tank without runes but with them he's even better.

Summoner Spells

I will rate summoner spells on a scale of 1-10.

Flash 9 Hopping walls NAIIIZE

Ghost 8 Just a plus to Sadism

Teleport 6 If you are feeling lazy go for it.

Ignite 8 Great for getting those guys that getaway with low hp.

Fortify 4 meh.

Exhaust 8 You can make their carry useless for an entire team fight with this.

Heal 2 YOU ARE Dr. Mundo What the **** do you need this for

Revive 2 why would you ever...

Clarity 10 a must

Clairvoyance 2 i'd leave this to the support

Rally 4 Going for the 1 minute turret? NOTE: This doesn't work anymore :(

Cleanse 10 I find Cleanse to be really good on mundo but not necessarily needed since he has the CC reduc from his Burning Agony UPDATE: The new cleanse is a must on Dr. Mundo It gets rid of Ignite that has been a stake in the side of Mundo players worldwide.

Smite 7 Jungle it up.

I know that everyone uses this set up but theres a good reason for it. It works. Consistently.

Farming with mundo is pretty easy. Just stay back and cleaver if you are being harassed. Or else you can just last hit normally. Using your E will drop the ranged minions after they are hit once by the tower. You should have an easy time farming and making that moolah.

rush a warmogs. my record is 11 minutes. so you should get it within first 17 minutes or so of the game. Then spirit visage. you can swap guardians with force if you need to. it really depends on the type of team you are playing against. its up to you to decide as a tank. The first 3 items are necessities though.

Warmogs and Spirit Visage are MUST.

Thornmail against Heavy AD
FoN against Heavy AP

If you are really bored and you dont give a rats *** what happens AP MUNDO! but really. the ap ratio for his burning agony is complete ****. but with rylais its mass slow so try that out for the lulz.

So your items should look something like this.

Warmog's Armor--> Mercury's Treads ----> Spirit Visage ---> Thornmail ---> Guardian Angel.

Warmog's Armor--> Mercury's Treads ----> Spirit Visage ---> Force of Nature ---> Guardian Angel.

The last item is completely up to you.
Atma's Impaler / Sunfire Cape / another Warmog's Armor / Randuin's Omen etc.

Then you will be an unstoppable juggernaut.
Im the juggernaut *****

Watch that atleast one time and it will guarantee you a skill boost. Watching it while playing will win you the game. True story.

Ranked Play

So you want to play Mundo Ranked?
If you are going to do that why are you looking at a build...
You should know how to play mundo good enough where you dont need a build if you are trying to use him in ranked.

Well Mundo is a great ranked character. Any team would love to have him. The only downside with picking mundo is that his only form of CC is his cleaver. He doesnt have a taunt or stun. So that is a down side.

The most important thing in ranked is farming. Making sure that you have more money than the other team guarantees you better items unless they kill you numerous times. Better items means stronger champion. Early towers are huge and so is taking the dragon and baron.
Those are great ways to get more moolah which means better items, which again means stronger champions.

Warding is also a really good way to avoid being ganked and keeping an eye out on key objectives.
im not going to go too far into how to play games because the best way to learn is by playing.

You can watch my ranked mundo gameplay by downloading this irf file and playing it using lolreplay.

Sadly i lost that game due to no warding and no map control and just getting rolled.

Just run in and butcher. the hardest part of playing mundo if any of it is even hard is timing ult. i usually set it off before a teamfight so it looks as if im taking no damage in the fight. its funny. well have fun with the build. not really much to describe just standard tanking protocol you know what to do.
1. Start Team fights
2. KS with your Cleaver
3. Chase if necessary.
4. And notice how your team is doing.

And a little side note. Your Masochism totally owns towers.
So post some of your scores in the comment box after using this build and tell me how it is. Leave constructive criticism if necessary lololol. Well have fun and hopefully i see you on the fields of justice.

And heres my mundo pentakill.
