Introduction

Hey, first guide here so constructive criticism is always welcome.

So I decided to write this guide for a top-notch tank Rammus. Now first off, this guide is intended to be for a TANK rammus so it mainly focuses on the defensive side and thus tried to cater towards both armor and mag res. You'll notice that it wont deal as much damage as some builds, particularly in early game but in mid and late game, you will be turning team fights around single-handed.

Runes

Ok so I personally like to grab some Flat Armor Seals and Flat Magic Resist Glyphs for obvious reasons, of course you can feel free to switch them to per lvl armor and mag res but i find you lack survivability early game when you do so. Another thing you can do is to grab Dodge Chance Seals which are totally fine, but yet again I find Flat Armor to be the most reliable and damaging as Rammus converts armor to damage, this isn't Jax. Totally up to you. Grabbing ArP (Armor penetration) Marks gives you a lot more bite and can help when fighting against the foes you Taunt and then Defensive Ball Curl (hereafter DBC) against. Lastly Health Quints for more.... well health.

Masteries

So for masteries I like to go with a 9-21-0 build obviously the 21 in defense is of higher priority (for those of you below level 30). You could possibly put the extra 9 into utility but I prefer the magic penetration to give Tremors and Powerball a little bit extra hurt.

Early Game

So start the game by grabbing a Doran's Shield and a Health Pot and heading into lane, now, this Rammus holds out best as a laning partner but can also take the solo lane if you have a jungler. During early game you should be harassing with DBC and Taunt. Use Powerball when heading out of spawn turret to reduce downtime but make sure you're waiting until you have regened your mana before
