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.
Hello fellow summoner's! This is my first guide (so don't expect much, but I will be sure to get better), and I will be teaching you how to play Rammus as a tank-support in the bot lane. I know that Rammus's normally played as jungle but he's good at playing in the bot lane ,too (I commonly play rammus in the bot lane).
Rammus is a tough tank, which relies much on armor (for me). He is good at chasing enemies and setting ganks or clashes. If played really well, Rammus can hold two to three tanks(or really tough, tank-like champions atleast) for some time before you're teammates go for back-up. Rammus has high survival rate too at ganks and clashes.
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Mark of Scaling Health
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Scaling Armor
Greater Seal of Armor - you'll need a good number base armor at the start of the game.
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist - this is usefull against mages and casters.
Greater Mark of Scaling Health & Greater Quintessence of Scaling Armor - we'll want Rammus to have high health and armor especially at the mid and late game, in short, a late game threat.
I normally keep my masteries for rammus at 0-30-0, like this:
This mastery page focused more on making rammus tough but doesn't removes his support role.
But you can also make it a 1-29-0 mastery page, like this:
This 2nd mastery is for buffing you're Exhaust.
These are your core items. The items that you'll be wanting to see on your items bar.
Aegis of the Legion
Ninja Tabi - just like what I said earlier, I rely mostly on armor for Rammus.
Aegis of the Legion - you're a support right?
- you'll be needing to upgrade this item to Runic Bulwark after
completing the core builds or if you're just lacking money to buy the
other items (because Runic Bulwark is much easier to save for.
Sunfire Cape - great for close quarters, cs, gives generous amount of health and armor.
Thornmail - okay, so now you're a bully.
- makes Rammus tougher with his 2nd skill activated.
Warmog's Armor - a big amount of health and health regen will be a good sustain especially in
clashes and team fights.
Randuin's Omen - alright hitters, take you're pick.
- you're team will be needing a good setter, plus you'll be needing more health
Skill Sequence and some tips
-Take Powerball first for cs.
-I took all the first 3 skills of rammus ( Powerball, Defensive Ball Curl, and Puncturing Taunt), so he cn be more flexible in the field.
-I usually level up Rammus's Defensive Ball Curl first because it is very effective for team fights because of its bonus armor and damage return.
-You can use Tremors every time there are team fights, enemy ganking you or simply damaging someone away from you (you shouldn't be worrying 'bout using this anytime 'cause of its low cooldown).
TIP for using Tremors:
-when you're on a 1v1 situation against an enemy champ, let's put rengar for example, and he's about to die when he uses his ss and becomes invi, don't hesitate to go after him(atleast guess the direction he's going) and use Tremors(maybe use Tremors when you're sensing that he's going to die and before he'll try to escape) to nail him and getting a kill.
Video about rammus
I know ,I know, this has nothing to do with this guide, I just thought this was funny.
This vid is a little outdated for a season 3 guide, but who cares? It's rammus! He's awesome! ^_^
*This vid is NOT mine, just sayin'
Summary and conclusion
Rammus is one tough armadillo for your enemies to deal with if played right. I will be providing screenshots next time to prove you that Rammus is my winning champ in ranked games ^_^. I hope that my first guide will be a great help for my fellow summoners out there who wants/loves to play rammus.
Please upvote if you liked this guide and/or it helped you (I know that this guide won't be helping you "a lot" for I'm just a newbie at making these guides). Please don't hesitate to ask anything 'bout the guide. You're comments and suggestions would be a great help too ^_^.
Thanks for viewing my guide :)
