Items

The items combined with his runes and masteries give him the name Tankplank making him extremely tanky but also make him able to deal significant damage. Taking a cloth armour and 5 health will allow you to stay durable in lane and heal. If you can try to grab blue to farm with parrley which will give you extra gold for killing creeps. Then go back and grab your ninja tabi which will make you durable enough to take on the enemy ad carries and still deal massive damage with crits. Getting a frozen mallet later will help you chase down opponents with your team and also give you a lot of damage combined with your atmas. Getting atmas impaler will give you a descent amount of armour allow you to farm creeps easier and also give you alot more damage. With the warmogs you will be able to increase your health and damage alot more making you durable in team fights. Then grabbing the force of nature will give you the health regeneration need to to survive fights and give the magic resistance to take on ap casters.
