This is my first guide and i am going to show u the way i play Rumble, the mechanized menace. I play Rumble as a tank because after i tryed several builds in a lot of matches i discovered that building ap is a waste since his ap ratio scales between 0.2-0.5. The ap build works fine to be honestly, but requires good team mates and farming. This build is way easier and allows u to stay alive a lot and u can still get a lot of kills but slower and u will need help on late.
I hope u will enjoy this guide and will help u play him or at least, make u try this bruiser.
Pros / Cons
- very good farmer
- very good harasser
- strong early and mid game , and a god on late if he is build and farmed correctly
- great escaper
- perfect initiator and chaser
- has 1 of the best slows in game
- low ap ratio
- his passive makes him an easy kill and disables him for 6 seconds
My masteries allow me to deal high dmg early game and also increase my Mr/Armor to allow me farm, harass and stay on lane way easier.
I use magic penetration marks to deal higher dmg on early game and also flat armor and magic resistance seals, glyps, quints to stay a lot on lane and ignore some of the enemy's damage.
My summoners are Flash and ghost. These 2 allow me escape and chase very easily. But i mostly use them to towerdive when enemys have low hp and i get a Nerd Rage.
This is best starting item for rumble, Because it gives +10 armor, some hp, and hp regen, everything u need for a tank on early.
I suggest taking these boots because u get +25 MR on early and tenacity. Don't get boots of swiftness because u don't need. Use ghost/flash if an enemy escapes or just buy force of nature and u will have a nice running speed. Also use E for the extra movement speed bonus.
Core item. The sooner u get the easier u kill. Since rumble is spamming Q 24/7 u will also slow and the slow on E will greatly increase making ur life way easier when chasing an enemy or even more.
I choosed this item for the high Magic Resistance and for the hp regen and passive. This item will allow u regenerate a lot of hp whle not in combat so u won't waste time goin back to base. I have a special tact with this item. All i do is go against 1 or 2 enemies, harass them with E and Q until i go low hp or overheat, then go to tower and wait until i get back my hp. I do this over and over again until they reach 50% hp or less, in that moment just use R and go grab the kills like a boss.
Once u get this item farm a lot and kill whenever u can so ui stack it full. The passive will make u reach 4k hp and a nice hp regen.
I mostly buy this to get rid of the enemy dps. Once i get it i mostly ignore their dmg since each hit they do to me mlowers their hp too so i usually wait until they giv up hitting me or they lose a lot of hp so i just E-Q them down.
If the match is too long and u are done with these 6 items sell the doran shield and buy one of these : , , depending on the enemy team's picks.
Early and Mid game
Since the build is mostly for tankiong, on late all u need to do is to teamplay so i won't waste my time explaining taht part.
On early game just haer*** and farm a lot. Play agressively if the lane alows u. If u play solo top, play 100% agressive since there are no champs that are good against rumble and can also solo top. But always pay attention if they gank u or not. Buy hp pots everytime u go to base and have money so u stay on lane more. Once u get the ultimate everything is simple.
On mid game start ganking a lot since u have the E and R wich are perfect for it.
Once u learn to play rumble everything gets easy. This champion requires rage, map awareness and skillshot.
I think i covered everything i know about him. I will add more stuff each time i discover something new, probably i make a movie who knows. I hope this guide helps everyone understand rumble tanking. If u like it please vote and if u have any advices feel free to tell me.
