note about new season
Continue banning Cait...
no ff mentality <3

Abuse your early game power and be carefull when you reach late game (you will fall of). You're the strong AD with 2 itens.
Hit Q and win trade.
Use W, space and win (just with range advantage).
Don't waste your W. It's your win condition!
Be careful ulting, you need 80 to W Q at least.
You don't need to build full damage every game, try find the best itens and win more games!
How positioning in the team fights or some skirmishs

Early Game

Your main goal in the early stages is to farm safely. In order to do that you can wiggle before farming minions, focusing to dodge the enemy ability. try be behind your minions and hit Q or E(if doing the ap start) when they are going to farm.
In early fights you can't go in 3, wait and fell the best timing to go (maybe after they using all abilities).

Mid Game

In this stage if you're realy ahead you don't need to care about enemies, unsless they have some target cc or a strong enemy.
If your got camped or doesn't play well in the early game, is the same thing for early game. Wait for enemy abilities and maybe some allies die. don't waste your W if you can't go in, otherwise its 8 sec cooldown that u can't do any damage.

Late Game

If you reach this far in the game i can just hope for your best. After enemy buying MR you can't do the enouth damage and the enemy can hard focus you and easily shut down. Some tips are just fighing if flash / second spell is up and dont face checking brushs or river.
What build i do? / Item explanation
So before talking about the items and the reason I built them, I'll talk about what stats Kog'maw needs.

Stats explanation

  1. Atack speed
    The core stat for this champiom. More attack speed means more damage from W.
  2. MS
    MS is important for walking up into the enemy. If you have less MS than your enemy, you cannot hit him properly.
  3. Health
    Because you're walking for the enemy team in most cases, it's inevitable that you'll get hit back.
  4. Resistance
    Do the same as health, resistances help you tank enemy damage.
  5. AP/AD
    Because you're getting lots of attack speed, this stats boosts your damage output. W damage (AP), auto damage (AD)

what kraken start??

I'm mostly starting with kraken in my last 50 games and im winning with crazy stats (most of games top damage and +12 kills)
After they fixing the bug with guinsoo it's realy strong again.


  • Kraken Slayer
    The core item for kog'maw. After building item i recomend 1v1 the enemy adc. Try stat check him and probably you'll kill if the Q hits.

  • Guinsoo's Rageblade
    Guinsoo is a solid option for dealing damage, try stacking up before fights. Do as second item most of the times.

  • Blade of the Ruined King
    This is a solid item for chasing enemies, kiting them, and having some sustain in midgame. Great against HP staking.

  • Terminus
    The ITEM for midgame. it's really strong lately

  • Runaan's Hurricane
    This item is kinda weak rn. Do not recomend unless is last item.

  • Locket of the Iron Solari

  • Jak'Sho, The Protean
    A better solari paired with terminus.

  • Wit's End
    Really strait forward. Do against AP damage, and you don't want to give your damage for it.

  • Randuin's Omen
    Great tank item when facing Crit ad. If they dive you and aren't doing Crit, I recommend Unending Despair.

  • Unending Despair
    This is one of the best tank items, IMO. If they stack into you and do not have enough damage to kill you instantly, this item SHINES SO MUCH. The sustain it gives is great, and the status is the same as Randuin's.

  • Kaenic Rookern
    Another incredible tank item. In a game, I did this one as a second item, and the enemy vlad was healing me almost (he has 2-3 items).

  • Frozen Heart
    Solid option when you already have HP and need a huge amount of armor and are dealing with DPS damage.

  • Cosmic Drive
    A great last item or 6° item. The MS helps when you need to kite the enemy team or orb walk into them.

  • Trinity Force
    Not the greatest item ever made, it's a solid option when you really can't reach the enemy team, like against Jhin, Pyke, Jayce, and Hwei (a really specific case). And this item also gives you a nice amount of MS.

  • Riftmaker
    An old-school item, not that great nowadays, but can work in some cases against lots of melle and with a prolonged fight.

  • Iceborn Gauntlet
    Great tank option when facing almost full AD comps. The slow can help you a lot. A little trick you can use with sheen items is to auto-skill them (your auto-skill aplies the sheen effect).
  • Experimental Hexplate
    Not a good item anymore sadly. it gets outclassed by kraken guinsoo

ALACRITY IN MY OPINION IS BETTER IN S14. You have so many red buffs and you can build riftmaker for sustain. but still preference

Bloodline if not building bork early.
Alacrity if building bork early.

This is preference, please try this runes in different machups and use by your feeling.
In this guide I show a lot of builds that can be done in diferents games. Try and see by yourself witch are the best itens and win more games. DON'T COPY FROM U.GG OR OP.GG
build the best itens for your game
