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.
My name is Yomikk, my name at League Of Legends and Youtube is ThaGlitchers. This is my first build/guide. I've been playing Rammus pretty much and i got some skills with him, that's why i posted this guide. Before trying this guide only you should really try practising on bots or at a custom game, because first time rammus is not easy. If you would like to post some pictures of your stats of a online game with rammus, please do that. If you really dont want to read all this then dont, this guide is pretty long.
If my english is wrong, im sorry. I am not that good in english since i dont live in a english spelling country.
Your runes is pretty much only armor, if you want other runes then take health, but i recommend you to use armor runes.
Why you use armor runes:
Your passive is that 25% of your armor goes to attack damage, that means its better to buy armor than attack damage. Because if you buy attack damage you will only get attack damage and no armor, so if the other team have a AD Carry you will have no chance.
Rammus is a tank!
I really dont have anything to say to the Masteries, I just use these. Thats why i put them on this guide.
The items is really important to rammus, you pretty much chose yourself what you really want to play, but this guide is for tanks who likes to do damage and help the team.
Here is a list of what you really should buy:
Warmog and Atmas
Tank who helpes alot in team fights and doesent take much damage:
These items you should buy here is really chosen by yourself, what your'e going to buy is 2 Warmog, some magic resist (it depends if the other team have AP), Thorn mail or some good armor, and a Guardian angel.
All these small builds here is chosen by yourself, i really like to use the one who buys armor and get kills, but you can try these too. I've tried them before and i did not really like them.
Why i chose these spells is really because i really like them. When your'e soloing lane or something its really nice to have heal and promote. Promote will help you to get some farming and help you to push down turrets much much more easier. Heal will help you a lot when your trying to get a First blood or a kill.
If you dont like these Spells, then please dont use them. This is up to your own what you really want to use.
But please, try these first and see how they roll.
If you've followed everything i've written, your good to go to start a match and win a match. But remember, dont go on people who have a Thorn mail and you can see its a good tank, because then you just do a suicide. This build of Rammus is not a really tank, but a armor tank. I love this build since i get easly kills with him in team fights and i really help the team alot.
When your in team fights and you see a person on your team is really squishy and getting hit, use your E (Taunt) that will help your team from not feeding or dying or getting aced. If you dont understand a **** what im saying then try a bot round or two before going online. Its really important that if you dont get a kill or two then dont get angry, cause tanks are not really supposed to get kills.
Creeping / Jungling
I never tried Jungling before with this build and I never tried with another build either. So i recommend you to not try. If you think i should try then leave a comment below.
How your going to help your team is that your going to take the most of the damage from AD people, because you have thorn mail. When your in team fights, taunt a AD carry guy to attack you. Then you will get a kill because they will kill themselfs, because of your thorn mail.
The farming is not really good with rammus, if your going to get a good farm. Then use Promote or your ulti in big minion waves.
