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.
Look, one thing is certain, after all games I made with rammus:
He isn't only a tank.
He tanks, he destroys turrets, he cancels channeling ultimates, he starts fights, he kills and he farms.
The only thing that misses, is a good player behind his skills.
Ok, knowing that, this build that I am proposing is about a USEFULL Rammus - For a X5 (in x3 he is too much OP due to his tanking abilities and the lack of dps in the other side)
Some items are situational. The aegis and the Guardian angel can be exchanged for Slowing items, as frozen heart and Brain Freeze.
Tankers tank a lot. As they tank a lot, they can be ignored, and enemies can focus fire in your team dpsers then, later, deal with the tank.
your tank annoys so much that they NEED to deal with it and with the dpsers. U NEED TO BE ANNOYING.
So, the objective in this build is: Get armor, get magic resistance, deal dmg due to your native ability and skills and slow them.
With this build u can destroy a turret taking its dmg, slow enemies, taunt a channeling and revive.
You will carry the aura of legion and make your ult do the same as SAND KING in dota.
And dont forguet: POWER Ball, with boots and Ghost = almost 1k MS.
With slow from rylais, u almost stun the enemy.
Skipping the blablabla:
- Creep using powerball at the center of the mob (with pratice, all the mob is granted with 1 pb and some physicall dmg or with hard shell)
- Be at many times of the map, with teleport, helping in ganks with ghost.
- Escape from ganks with ghost and powerball
- Use taunt to recover a running enemy.
- Have one thing in mind. You are not a killer. You are a DAMMIT PAIN in the *** to fight against.
THIS needs to be in the enemy minds, so they will loose time aiming you.
If they dont, u can destroy the turret, save friends with slows and taunts and kill heroes, why not? ^^
Well, any doubts or complaining, just write it down :)
EDIT: Items that I dont agree, at most of time, for Rammus:
Ninja Tabi. OMG dudes, his intention is to suffer dmg, whats the point for avoiding it?
Ok, if u are intended to deal dmg with him, but not when u want to use thorns or shell.
Make some lifepoints and armor instead.
Dpser items - Rammus needs focus. Dont make an item unless if it fits perfectly in your build, because he needs to be good at something and do the rest, if possible.
