Introduction

Hello everyone if you are looking for a good solo queue solo top champion you came to the right place. First of i want to start by saying that Rumble is a pretty good champion as he can close gaps very quickly with its Electro-Harpoon(E) and The Equalizer(R) or he can open up gaps pretty easy with its Scrap Shield(w). He has that Scrap Shield(W) that can stop early game abusive harassing champions like Yorick or Renekton. Also it can harass its lane with Flamespitter (Q) really easily therefore making the lane easy to gank for the jungler and essentially turning the game easier for your team. So continue reading the guide to learn how to dominate in solo top in solo queue. :)

Lore

Rumble, the Mechanized Menace

Even amongst yordles, Rumble was always the runt of the litter. As such, he was used to being bullied. In order to survive, he had to be scrappier and more resourceful than his peers. He developed a quick temper and a reputation for getting even, no matter who crossed him. This made him something of a loner, but he didn’t mind. He liked to tinker, preferring the company of gadgets, and he could usually be found rummaging through the junkyard. He showed great potential as a mechanic. His teachers recommended him for enrollment at the Yordle Academy of Science and Progress in Piltover, where he may very well have become one of Heimerdinger’s esteemed protégés, but Rumble refused to go. He believed that Heimerdinger and his associates were “sellouts,” trading superior yordle technology to humans for nothing more than a pat on the head while yordles remained the butt of their jokes.

When a group of human graduates from the Yordle Academy sailed to Bandle City to visit the place where their mentor was born and raised, Rumble couldn’t resist the temptation to see them face-to-face (so to speak). He only intended to get a good look at the humans, but four hours and several choice words later, he returned home bruised and bloodied with an earful about how he was an embarrassment to “enlightened” yordles like Heimerdinger. The next morning he left Bandle City without a word, and wasn’t seen again for months. When he returned, he was at the helm of a clanking, mechanized monstrosity. He marched it to the center of town amidst dumbfounded onlookers and there announced that he would join the League of Legends to show the world what yordle-tech was really capable of, without hiding behind a foreign banner.

“Ugh, it’s gonna take forever to scrape your face off my suit!”
- Rumble

This is one of the popular chosen runes for ap champions but i don't recommend playing him mid as exchanging blows with mid champions is hard for him.

Skills


This ability is your main damage ability. This is one of the best harrasing abilities in the game because when this ability hits your enemy it doesnt get the minion aggro on you. So there are two chances:
1-He will get the amazing damage from your harass and start playing defensive which will let you start farming and since you are a melee champion it is really good for you and if he is a melee champion he wont be able to farm which will give you a lead in gold/creep score.
2-He will try to attack you which will take all of the minion aggro on him so you use your Scrap Shield (W) and attack back this time he gets damage from you plus from the minions which will put him ina danger zone which will let you win the lane.
In both of them you win but this happens if you have kept your creep score as high as you should for this to be happening.
-A con for this ability is that it pushes your lane too much its just annoying so you should make sure you get a ward as fast as you can to be safe against ganks from junglers or mid laners.



You always hear people saying "OMG Renekton too op damage early game" or "FFS nerf this Darius he does so much damage" or "WTF how can he harass me so easily they should nerf Yorick" etc. These thing should come to you as a joke because you have an anti-burst shield which is awesome. Besides the shield it gives you a little movement speed which allows you to catch enemies or escape from them. Other then that this shield gives you shield for 2 secondswhich can block damage of Renektons Cull the Meek(Q) , Darius' Decimate (Q), and Yoricks overall harass since you dont have mana you can spam it to not get any damage at all.

Like all other abilities this one amazes me too because this ability is a skillshot that you can shoot twice in a specific amount of time and this ability can slow your enemy. When you get your rylais crystal scepter the slow that it applies is just funny cause i use my Scrap Shield (W) then hit him with one Electro-Harpoon(E) which causes him to slow greatly then with this slow i get in a position where there is no way i can miss my second harpoon and then i hit then its just done i kill him :D.

First time i played Rumble i thought like wtf is this ulti i think i can shoot those rockets to whereever i want and you can do that it applies slow and our rylais crystal scepters help slows them more causing them to stay in the area more and eat the more of the overtime damage. It's damage is balanced if you use this in an open area but if you manage to catch them in jungle in narrow spaces its ulti's damage from its damage overtime increases suprisingly and you watch them die laughing at the background. Kind of like ap Teemo mushrooms but mushrooms do more damage but its still fun to watch someone touch your mushroom and die.

This passive is just a beast.As you use abilities heat builds up granting you bonus damage on your skills and if you build your heat to maximum it silences you for 6 second but it gives your auto attacks bonus magic damage and at last times you can hit around 300 dmg and thats a freaking lot of damage considering its not actually a skill and allows you to deal "tons of damage" while you are still silenced.

Skill Sequence

I always get my E firstas it helps me do fast damage on the blue for my jungler and helps me farm from away at level one.

VS NO SUSTAIN CHAMPIONS
example: Darius, gankplank(i dont count Remove Scurvy as sustain it reequires lots of mana)
Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
At these times i get my 2nd level of Flamespitter(Q) faster so i can harass my enemy and since he doesnt have any way of sustain this will eventually make him base faster and go for a safer build.
VS EVEN DAMAGE EVEN SUSTAIN CHAMPIONS

example: Irelia, Olaf
Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
The only difference is i get Scrap Shield (W) in 3rd level so when we try to exchange blows i neglate his damage and get no damage in my real hitpoints (HP).
VS HARASSING CHAMPIONS

example: Yorick, Renekton
Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
You do damage to them no matter what so you look to neglate their harass and since their damage is more then a normal champion you get your Scrap Shield(W) upgraded to level 3 with your Electro-Harpoon(E) so you have low damage from your harpoons but you have a higher shield and on the bright side you mainly use your Electro Harpoons (E) to slow your enemy.
VS GOOD SUSTAIN CHAMPIONS

example: Vladimir, Cho'Gath
Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
I find these champions as Rumble's counters cause they are the only champions that can get him in lane.This time i need to farm from away cause these champions cause lot of promblem if i come near my minions.For example Cho'Gath will throw me up and silence me then hit me a couple of times. While he is hitting me i do damage to him too and almost even damage as he did but his passive gets him back to full hitpoints (HP) while i sit there with low hitpoints (HP). Thats why i upgrade all my abilities at the same time to level 3 to farm from away and play defensive which puts his Flamespitter (Q) to no use until your jungler ganks your lane.

How-To-Play

What-To-Do
1-Farm with your Electro-Harpoon from far away.
2-Use Flamespitter sometimes to harass your enemy.
3-Use Scrap Shield to negate enemy harasses.
4-If you are chasing your enemy use the second Electro-Harpoon after 1 second so enemy will be slowed maximed duration.
5-When you are chasing, going back to lane, escaping keep spamming that Scrap Shield
6-Your The Equalizer has a really big range use it to catch or finish opponents whiles escaping
7-While fighting in the jungle use The Equalizer in the road where all enemies are as there is fewer ways to escape they will get lots of damage
What-To-Not-Forget
1-Your Flamespitter doesnt pull minion aggro on you
2-Your The Equalizer's great range
