Introduction

Welcome to my Rammus Dominion guide! This is a quick build I've been using in my past few games, and generally get an awesome score with it! With this build you'll be able to control the map, make lots of kills and defend capture points. Rammus can currently be considered the most OP champion in Dominion.

Please Rate & Comment this guide if you think it was helpful!

This is also my first guide ever, so please bare with me.

Pros / Cons

Pros

  • Excellent Map Movement

  • Excellent Tank

  • Make lots of kills while building as tank

Cons
  • Useless if all skills are on cooldown
  • Get called OP

Runes

I take the following runes


This allows me to take damage early game, which is most definitely needed for defending capture points.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

I generally go for Ghost and Flash. Some excellent other Summoner Spells to use are Exhaust and Revive.

Ghost
Used for Moving around the map, which is really important in this game mode. Can also be used for fleeing and catching up with enemies. Best used in combination with Powerball

Flash
Mainly used for jumping over creep waves while using Powerball. Can also be used to escape and catch up with enemies

Exhaust
I usually don't get this, but this summoner spell can be amazing if used well. Use Exhaust on enemies who are in line of the turret damage, this slows them down and also decreases their damage output on you.

Revive
I take this when I want to appear out of nowhere at all! Use Revive to defend those important capture points after you've died. This can also be used to achieve some amazing movement speed when used together with Ghost and Powerball.

Which summoner spells should I take?
ALWAYS get Ghost together with another spell. Having Ghost in this gametype is almost crucial. For your second spell use either Flash, Revive or Exhaust (in order of my liking)

Situational Items

Please note that these are examples of builds I have used in Dominion. You should always be aware of what enemies you're up against and choose your items accordingly!http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/edit-build?edit=129576#

Skill Sequence

I get all three Powerball, Defensive Ball Curl and Puncturing Taunt at the beginning of the game. This allows me to reach the top capture point as soon as possible using Powerball, while also making me viable in battle by using Puncturing Taunt and Defensive Ball Curl on the most squishy AD champions currently there.

I max Defensive Ball Curl as soon as possible, while sneaking some points in Puncturing Taunt in-between. The reason for this is that Defensive Ball Curl is your main damage output together with your Thornmail. This combination literally melts away the enemy's health.

Also level up your Tremors when you can.


Guide Top

Skill Combo

Rush in with Powerball, targeting the most squishy AD character you can find. Use Puncturing Taunt -> Defensive Ball Curl -> Tremors to finish off all your enemies.

Playstyle

Early game
Grab some Boots of Speed, a Ruby Crystal and a Regrowth Pendant. We will later build these into a Warmog's Armor. I generally take the top lane and go for the most northern capture point first. Your Powerball is excellent for this. You want to focus on defending the northern capture point for this part of the game.

Mid game
By now you should have your Boots of Mobility and Warmog's Armor. At this point you're already kind of OP. Work towards building your Thornmail for some amazing damage vs AD characters. Use your Powerball to rush to the capture points. Make sure you use the Speed Buffs while doing this. You should also start building your Force of Nature by the end of Mid Game. I usually get the Negatron Cloak first, and get the Regrowth Pendant later. This is to build up some Magic Resist which Rammus naturally lacks.

Late game
This is where you're really gonna start dominating. After you've gotten your Force of Nature you'll be unstoppable! You will have lots of both Armor and Magic Resist while still dealing Massive Amounts of Damage. At this point I usually try to backdoor their capture points by using my Powerball and Ghost at the same time. Your Sunfire Cape will deal some bonus damage on top of your Thornmail and Defensive Ball Curl combo. If the game is taking really long you should buy a Guardian Angel. After the Guardian Angel has revived you, use your Powerball to escape.
