I like playing Amumu jungle, but it sucks in Silver elo because your team completely sucks. I'm trying to gank every where but when there is a Xin agains't us, I place wards to everywhere to get some vision. And when I see Xin going to gank somewhere, I ping like crazy but of course no bot lane doesn't go back and get camped or ganked then say "AMUMU REPORT HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO PLAY"...

The masteries are ****ed up, u can't put 5 points in Runic Affinity and then 1 in Assassin, it's impossible.


I agree, love this guide but I'd hate to see it go stale

Yes you are right, but this is completely up to you and your gameplay. I find it harder to carry with a tanky Amumu, so the Bond of Stone route is not my favorite. But yes as this guide is aimed at people that do not play Amumu often and want to learn about him I will put the Bond of Stone route.

Thank you for your recommendation,

SmileYouDied

question. why thunderlord's? for the ganks? i mean i like more damage on my Amumu as much as the next guy, but wouldn't bond of stone be better? 4% less damage and when ganking 8%. also u can leave out dangerous game and merciles. And go for feast. this way u are tanky, still doing damage with sorcery, with a little more sustain. thunderlord's just feels like a waste when you are only getting to use it for ganks. maybe an eve or kha would get more use out of it. Imo

How do you feel about Righteous Glory on Amumu? I watched a somewhat old Amumu analysis video (mid to early season 5), and it said Righteous Glory should be your first major item after boots. Is it a viable option, or are the other items just better?

Seems like a good guide, but one thing which confuses me is that the build explained in your guide isn't the same as the Full Build shown at the beginning of the guide.

Runes need to be changed.
At start you suggest Meteo's set of runes but later in guide "common" set for an AP jung.
Moreover after changes in armor runes think about the idea of using Greater Seal of Health or Greater Seal of Scaling Health (or some balance of them and Greater Seal of Armor).

Also the Ability Sequence need to be fixed: at start you have WEQE... and later in guide: WEEQ...
As for me, leave WEEQ.

I agree with comments above about Liandry's Torment.

One more important to mention: put somewhere in "jungle route" some kind of a strategy how to have a first back after golems. I saw lots of situations that amumu jungles have first back after red buff (if started with frog and blue) as they had not enough health to beat golems (we are not in earlier patches when we had an option to have "some more" Health Potions).

Why don't you take Liandry's Torment? It works really well with all of Amumu's abilities. I've heard a good amount of people take it as their 3rd or 4th item, right before team fights start.

The masteries and ability sequence probably need to be updated. The first masteries and ability sequence shown are not the same as those later on in the guide.

I really don't recommend you to take trailblazer because you (almost) always kill the small minions before the big minion anyway. The only thing that makes trailblazer better in some way is that you get some health and mana back if you smite... I personally take stalkers blade because it's better to gank and you can make sure they can't get out of your W that way. I also think stalkers blade is better because if you have your trailblazer you have backed atleast once which means you could've gotten 2 pots as well (in most situations) and then you should be able to sustain long enough already. After you used those pots and backed for the 2nd time you should be able to start building a randuins or frozen heart already and with that armor you will barely be hit by the jungle monsters anymore. Don't buy a sunfire cape ! the passive is already included in the cinderhulk so it's useless to buy a sunfire cape over a randuins omen which gives you more HP and has a nice active which you can use right after bandage tossing and using your ult, that will CC the enemy team very hard in a teamfight.

You are stacking 2x immolation items. I'd remove the sunfire cape from item build. Your guide also contains some coding errors that ruin the whole layout.

In what world is Frozen Heart inefficient? as long as you've built health elsewhere the stats it gives as well as the amazing passive make it way more than efficient. In terms of gold efficiency the mana and passive are free as the 100 armor is worth 2000g and the CDR is worth a bit more than 600g. The rest of what you say is pretty spot on. Liandry's is amazing on Amumu (especially if you buy the Heart because its passive counts as movement impairment to anything within 700 range) as well as Magus.

One thing I'd note is that you shouldn't purchase Banner of Command on a regular basis. It is a situational item and thus should probably not be in the featured build.

DarJul | March 22, 2015 5:17am
I also agree with subtituting Sunfire for Omen's, since the Sunfire passive doesn't stack... or what about keeping Sunfire and going for the Magus enchantment? It is a fair amount of AP and a nice CDR of 20%, which is good for farming as well... which amumu does pretty well, but slowly (¿? It's been some time since I played amumu, I wanna pick it up again, maybe I'm saying something dumb).
And, now that Cinderhulk doesn't give the Tenacity of Juggernaut, would you consider taking Mercs rather than Mobis? Because the mobility boost is gonna go away as soon as you engage, which makes Mobis not so useful...¿? Hell, I'm thinking of Sorcerer's, that bit of Magic Pen might be nice.

What should i get instead of sunfire cape im thinking omen because you can use that active just as your ult releases them for even more cc

Ultrajonh (1) | March 16, 2015 9:30am
You got to update this guide, because if i'm right, now that the sunfire cape has a named passive (Immolate), buying it + enchantment cinderhulk would just be a waste.

0rtega (5) | March 15, 2015 2:17pm
I just want to point out that Enchantment: Cinderhaulkdoes not stack with Sunfire Cape because of a new passive they both share, (UNIQUE Passive - IMMOLATE.)
Great idea of a guide, I'm glad there's a 5.5 patch Amumu guide, so keep it up!

I would say a Solo Queue Amumu needs to carry games himself, for that Liandry's Torment is a must have item. You should always get CDR/level glyphs as they are super cost efficient. Then, you don't need the rather inefficient Frozen Heart. I also like to run enchantment: magus as an early power spike with Amumu can give you great midgame control, as you can't rely on your teams damage and you get more ultimates with it. Also, your survivability should be high enough at this point thanks to Tantrum.

Some walls of text and grammar mistakes in the first two chapters. Also try to code everything you can. Apart from that, I think that you've acomplished the level of depth necessary. Aand try to simplify as much as you can those walls of text, because otherwise people won't find it easy to read and comprehend

Now, we can only buy 1 healty potion with hunter's machete in the start, and it make a HUGE diference to Amumu's jungle. Just a tip

Just given your build a try with only my second game as amumu and it worked fantastically well.
Steamrolled every lane, countered the enemy jungler and cleaned up in the team fights, ended up finishing the game with 35 assists, even getting my team mate a penta kill towards the end aha!

Very good guide, up voted, thank you :)

Decent Guide. Jungle is my main and have been playing Amumu for awhile now. This guide was covers a few of the basic things, could do with a bit of improvement, especially grammar. But hey, unless your getting paid to do this, who cares. Cheers for the hard work mate.

Yes sry this is a mistake by me, I am currently playing on a french keyboard because I recently moved country and on french key board the keys are arranged like that: azerty and not qwerty. So this explains me mistaking my q with a. I had already tried to change those mistakes but apparently I left so out :D. I will update the rune page soon and the masteries again because I really like the masteries and rune page that "NightBlue" uses, so come back soon to check these updates.

this is a lot better than all the downvoters say it was, I assume it's updated. I'd suggest archiving this and rereleasing as a new guide. with as many downvotes as you have already no one will read this : (

also take hybrid pen marks and like, MS quints : )

Not enough information, almost no coding, walls of text, too much and big pictures... If a Amumu-newbie would read this, he would have no idea what this champ can do.
Try to get more information into this build, like ability explanation, tips, counterpicks, item explanation... and use bbcoding.
