Introduction

This is an offensive build for Urgot to scale well into late game, in terms of damage, and still maintain some survivability. This build is most effective in a solo lane but can be done in a duo lane. If you have an opinion on the guide please vote and comment!

No one seems to care about alternative ways to build Urgot so I will no longer try to teach.


Guide Top

Runes

The red/quint runes should always be Greater Mark of Desolation and Greater Quintessence of Desolation because it helps your damage greatly throughout the game. Yellow runes can be switched for preference (maybe defense runes instead) but I have found Greater Seal of Replenishment to be highly effective for early game laning (I don't use mana regen per level because mana isn't too much of a problem in mid to late game). I like for late game cooldown reduction (even early game I can hit 3 Acid Hunters each charge so higher early cooldown reduction isn't as necessary). If you do change runes make sure they are primary to maximize their effectiveness.


Guide Top

Masteries

Main benefits of this Mastery Tree are Strength of Spirit , the various CD reductions in Utility, etc. Mostly a defensive mastery set but very solid at all points in the game.
Great if you like using Clairvoyance too.

I usually don't use Ghost but if you do put a point into Haste instead of Perseverence so that the bottom tier looks like 0 3 0 1.

Items

Early Game:


Get as early as possible to maximize mana (and damage) earlier in the game. Standard will help with early chases enough. Finish then to capitalize on Urgot's early dominance. Then finish your boots (Mercury Treads for large cc teams, if you like the speed increase, or if you want to get 4 Acid Hunters in one Corrosive Charge early). Later in the game, it may be a good idea to switch boots out (Ionian Boots to Mercury Treads for example).

Mid to Late Game:


I like (now cheaper due to BF Sword change!!) a lot mostly for its large amount of AD (100 at full charge!) and the vamp can be nice but Urgot isn't much of an auto attacker. can be made earlier than if the enemy team is stacking a ton of armor but this is generally an item to replace your in late game ( should be sold in late game to make room for a better item).

Survivability Items:


, , and are all good options for Urgot late game defense and you can make room for two of them ( should be taken if the other team has a lot of auto-attackers such as , , , etc.). should be taken if you are getting focused a lot and the other two are for Armor/Magic Resist and some nice mana bonuses to contribute to 's unique. is a good armor item too but I prefer for it's large mana bonus (which results in AD and some health regen), cooldown reduction, 46 more armor, and a great passive that reduces enemy damage significantly) especially since the RO nerf.

Items that Should be avoided


: No use for Crit and generally less AD than (at 20 or more minion kills).
: Decent all around stats and bonus movement speed is nice but the main reason to get this (the bonus damage after casting) is not reliable because of Urgot's small basic attack range and because he is not an auto-attacker.
: Again decent attack damage but AS and on-hit effects do not benefit Urgot greatly.
: A decent item for Urgot with some survivability and some AD however the slow is somewhat redundant due to Terror Capacitor and only applies to basic attacks which Urgot is not great at.



: I generally stay away from this item but it can be put into this build if you are getting a ton of kills and should be bought after or . You will be targeted however so some early defense items may be appropriate.

Build 2

This build is just to show other rune/mastery/spell set-ups.

Desolations are an absolute must so never change those. This example is MR heavy with and . These types of rune set-ups are mostly for Ranked Games in which you can see your lane opponent. This can also be done with Armor runes.

Cleanse is my third favorite summoner spell on Urgot so I use it in place of Clairvoyance if my team has another champion with Clairvoyance (commonly Alistar, Janna, Soraka, etc...) It is very useful for high CC teams or especially ganky teams (such as Warwick, Amumu, Alistar, Evelynn, etc...).
I find it is much more useful than Ghost because it can be used DURING the gank while Ghost will rarely save you. It also has a low cool down compared to other spells. However Ghost is better if the opposing team has very light CC (low CC teams are quite rare though). So in Blind Pick matches Cleanse> Ghost and most ranked matches.

The mastery set-up is a much more offensive build than Build 1. This mastery build gives higher damage because of (3 AD) and (6 ArP) while still maintaining benefits. This build will result in better lane dominance early and a little bit better in late game as well however you will lose 3% CDR ( - ) and you will have much longer summoner spell cool downs as well ( + = -51s on Flash CD which this build lacks). You also lose the potency of Clairvoyance so take Cleanse instead (you will also need Cleanse because of a larger Flash CD).

Both builds are solid-it's mostly a matter of which you prefer-so try both.

Summoner Spells

is an absolute must for Urgot players because it can be used defensively to escape and offensively when combined with your Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverse. I like but it can be switched depending on preference ( , , , and are all good). can be decent but there are much better choices. does not apply because Urgot does not jungle (besides the occasional red buff in late game). If you feel like you need a lot of the game you should seriously adjust your play style to playing more evasively (Urgot is not an up-close fighter!). is rarely needed early game and never needed late game so avoid it. , , and do not work for Urgot at all (or most champions for that matter).


Guide Top

Skills

Zaun-Touched Bolt Augmenter - Urgot's attacks reduce his targets' damage by 15% for 2.5 seconds.

This passive is great for one-on-one battles and to prevent ganks.

Acid Hunter - Urgot fires an Acid Hunter missile that collides with the first enemy it hits, slowing the target if he has his Terror Capacitor up. Acid Hunter missile-locks on enemies affected by Noxian Corrosive Charge.
Urgot fires a missile towards the cursor that deals 15/45/75/105/135 (+) physical damage.

Missile-lock can be achieved by holding the cursor over a target afflicted by Noxian Corrosive Charge.
Cost
40/40/40/40/40 Mana
Range
25000

Your primary skill and pretty much ALL of your damage. It is low mana cost and low cooldown so feel free to use it for dangerous minion kills as well. Can also be used to check bushes and hear for its distinct sound if you do not want to use Corrosive Charges that has a longer cool down.

Terror Capacitor - Urgot charges up his capacitor to gain a shield. While the shield is active, Urgot gains slowing attacks.
Urgot charges up his terror capacitor to gain a shield that absorbs 80/140/200/260/320 (+0.8) damage for 7 seconds. While the shield is active, Urgot's attacks and missiles slow targets by 20/25/30/35/40%.
Cost
55/60/65/70/75 Mana
Range
600

Good support skill. Use it to chase down enemies, kite, or prevent some damage but don't rely on its shield too heavily!

Noxian Corrosive Charge - Urgot launches a corrosive charge that damages enemies in an area and reduces their armor.
Urgot launches a Corrosive Charge at a target location. Enemies afflicted by the charge have their armor reduced by 12/14/16/18/20% and take 75/130/185/240/295 (+) physical damage over 5/5/5/5/5 seconds.
Acid Hunter is able to missile-lock onto targets affected by Noxian Corrosive Charge.
Cost
50/55/60/65/70 Mana
Range
950

The armor reduction and damage are nice but this should primarily be used for its lock on feature. Landing these on good opponents takes practice so study your enemy's actions and predict their movements. Landing this skill is key to being a successful Urgot player.

Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverse - Urgot charges up his Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser, swapping positions with the target. His target is suppressed for the duration of the channel. He gains increased armor and magic resistance after the swap.
Urgot targets an enemy champion and channels his Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser for 1 second, swapping locations with his target afterwards. His target is suppressed for the duration of the channel.

Urgot gains 80/105/130 armor and magic resist during and after the channel, and his target is slowed by 40% for 3 seconds after being swapped.
Cost
120/120/120 Mana
Range
600

An extremely tricky ultimate but can be very effective in certain situations and can make some funny kills. If the other team is retreating use Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverse to catch one (and maybe pursue another due to some gained ground) because the rest of the team is less likely to attack you while retreating. Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverse is also useful for preventing ganks (it even slows), especially when they are on both sides of you. You can also Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverse over trees, cliffs, or walls into your team and out safely. DO NOT initiate a team fight with this ability, you will die and may wipe your team! Use it as additional CC in team fights to separate a one of their team members to reduce it to a 5v4 match-up thereby greatly increasing your team's chance of winning!

Tactics

One on one fights are ideal
After getting don't be afraid to last hit minions with Acid Hunter
When at your pool shoot off to boost your mana (after getting Tear of course)
Usually avoid playing aggressively until at least level 3 when you start to hurt
Aim for squishies first most of the time (high damage dealers may take priority)
Use Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverse to single out enemies while maintaining your own safety
Activate while your is mid-flight to maximize its duration
Kite with and missiles to get away or help team mates escape
Practice your skill shots!
Aim your where your opponent is likely to walk into it
Use to scout bushes especially when enemies are missing
Maintain distance from enemy champions when you can
After landing do not run straight at the enemy but do maintain 's range as distance between you and the enemy
Ward to prevent getting ganked!

These are all tips against AP Sion because AD Sion is really rare

Sivir O
Don't let her push your tower too hard
Strafe to avoid and remember to avoid the return trip
The only reason Sivir is a difficult lane opponent for Urgot is the (ruins your ) so try to hit it off with a skill shot first or just wait until it wares off
Be careful when pushing against Sivir because of the increased movement speed from

Teemo O
Out range him so that he can't do much against you
Alert junglers when he is level 6 (especially if they want to gank Teemo)
Oracles against Teemo is always a good idea (for and Camouflage)

Watch out for + combos (usually happens when you try to chase him when hes low)
Consider bringing (Ranked)

Xin Zhao O
Avoid + combo
Out range him and kite him effectively
His passive heals him so try to harass him while he is basic attacking minions when he has low hp
Very hard to kill if he builds Tank Xin so don't expect many kills in this lane

Always remember that your job in a carry lane is to farm (whether it be minions or enemy champions)! If getting a kill is dangerous do not do it!

I skipped certain champions that I never see lane in solo lanes or that jungle more often than lane. If you would like to add something to this section or if I made a mistake please tell me!
