A massive creature of living stone, Malphite struggles to impose blessed order on a chaotic world. Birthed as a servitor-shard to an otherworldly obelisk known as the Monolith, he used his tremendous elemental strength to maintain and protect his progenitor, but ultimately failed. The only survivor of the destruction that followed, Malphite now endures Runeterra's soft folk and their fluid temperaments, while struggling to find a new role worthy of the last of his kind.
Malphite is a tank with huge amount of basic armor thanks to his W. Malphite also can be dominant in laning phase in some matchups thanks to his high basic damage. He scales very well into AD teamcomps and champions that autoattack a lot like Tryndamere etc. Malphite has bonus movement speed from Seismic Shard basically allows you to catch enemy. Another thing to keep in mind when playing Malphite is that you can afford sometimes not building full tank every game and get AP items like Luden's Echo, Rabadon's Deathcap, Void Staff etc.
+ Insane armor amount thanks to W
