Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is how I play Urgot and I've had great success with it, this is my first guide and I might update it to make a full guide on how to truly play him. but as far as my runes and items go this is it, he is pretty simple to play as long as you understand how his q and e work together. The main thing is that everyone under estimates him and then you kill them. If you wonder why I chose at-mogs as an item choice its because you'll do lots of damage in addition you can switch with your ult and right in the middle of their team and not die as long as you have your team with you. let me know what you think.
Ideally you want to go solo top since this allows for you to farm, and it is very easy to go 2 v 1 with urgot and still get kills.
For early game all you want to do is kill minions. Try not to use your abilities except for minimal poke. once you hit three you can combine you E and Q for kills, just remember that you have very little mana and you need to be ready to get kills if your team ganks. You'll want to B and pick up your tear and your boots and use your teleport to get right back into the lane so you don't loose xp. once you have the tear try and use your abilities to work on its passive but never let you mana get too low, about half is good for getting at least one kill.
The trick with Urgot's E is to know where your enemy is going to be and not where they are, once you throw a few you should get a measure of how the like to try and dodge your attacks, learn this pattern and exploit it, I can hit about 9 out of every 10 E's because people are predictable. and once you've got the E on them your Q will fly right to them, as long as your cursor is on them, with a ridiculous range.
The most challenging part to Urgot is know when and how to use his ult. It will either make your team love you or hate you. In a perfect world you'd always be on some form of voice chat with your team, but if you're trying to solo queue you'll have to use your best judgement on when to ult. for early game you DO NOT want to use it for an initiation, save it so that whoever is trying to run away gets sucked back into your team. However, if you make the mistake of overextending (it happens to the best of us)and you find yourself getting flanked, your ult is a great escape mechanism just switch with the enemy who's closer to your turret and then if you need to flash away.
How to ult effectively
Once you've built into your warmogs and you've farmed it up you'll be pretty unkillable as long as you stick with your team. at this point you can use your ult to initiate because you be put into the middle of their team and you'll do tons of damage. Don't ever go in with your ult unless your team is there of you may as well just give the other team the kill on a silver platter. always ult someone squishy who does alot of damage so your team can kill them.
Another use for your ult is to bait people into tower diving you then you switch them and throw down you E where you just where and mash Q this works about 5/6 of the time depending on who is diving you.
