DGK Who is DenGyldneKage? DenGyldneKage is a ALL LANE PLAYER: Hello, I am the creator of all these guides, i'm danish therefor my english could be read wrong in some cases, but I believe you understand 99% of my sentences. I make guides because I think it's cool to bring some awesome guides out there with a pretty good build! This introduction text will appear on all of my guides, because I believe it's alright to let people who decide to read your guides instead of just looking at what to build as first items etc, get's to know who's making the guides and who's also got impact on my guides.

DGK Who is Kurtdenstore21? Kurtdenstore21 is a TOPLANER: He is a danish player, who got to Challenger playing only Tryndamere which would make him a so called "OTP/One Trick Pony", and also one of my best friends IRL. Not only being one of my best friends IRL, he's also a phenomenal Tryndamere player, and I believe him to be in TOP 3 as Trynd in the world. That would also make my guides build a bit more stable in terms of it being good. Kurt is always trying to find new builds that works even better, so stay tuned for secret builds! He test his builds in Master ELO.

DGK Who is Godbro? Godbro is a MIDLANER: He is a danish player, The guy who's the reason that "Nidalee too tanky" meme came to life through xPeke by juking(Dodge) the abilities of his Xerath."Too Tanky" he's also a guy who got 4 Challenger Jackets because he had 4 accounts in TOP 10 EUW at the same time, that also means he knows something about the game, and some of my guides are based off his build that works with him. I don't believe you could go wrong with using his build, his builds are just different to most, which could make it harder for some to use.

DGK Who is styllEE? styllEE is a JUNGLER: He is a danish player, who's considered a "OTP/One Trick Pony" Ivern, since most Challengers call him the best Ivern player in the world. But he can still get 25/1 in Dia2 as Kha'Zix. As of Season 8 he currently got 2 Challenger accounts where one of them is at 800+ LP ATM. He know's his jungle really well, and being able to play Ivern on that scale is also a really great feat in terms of using your brain in Leauge of Legends, he got impact on my Ivern guide, so you can't go wrong there either. | Ivern is a champ where you need 110% brain.


If you do like my guide and it helped you, feel free to give it a upvote, that also helps me and my guide in the ladder system! I will do my best to make great builds on Mobafire, which is a site people tend to see as a joke.


If you think something should be added to the guide, then feel free to come up with suggestions, but I do not respons to commands like "Add [???] otherwise your build is weird" or similar. But I do take note of suggestions!


I realized making guides, people tend to want to attack your guide if you don't use a build they don't like. Simply proceed to move on if you don't like my build. Nothing is wrong if it's obviously not a troll guide. Like it or leave it!

"Solitude can be lonelier than death." ~Amumu

Legend claims that Amumu is a lonely and melancholy soul from ancient Shurima, roaming the world in search of a friend. Doomed by an ancient curse to remain alone forever, his Cursed Touch touch is death, his affection ruin. Those who claim to have seen him describe a living cadaver, small in stature and wrapped in creeping bandages. Amumu has inspired myths, songs, and folklore told and retold for generations such that it is impossible to separate truth from fiction.

+ Lategame Scale
+ Burst Damage
+ CC
+ Waveclear
+ AOE Ultimate
+ Carry Games
+ Lockdowns
+ KS'er

You have a great waveclear with Amumu, as you get your items throughout the game, already after Stalker's Blade, your waveclear should be fine. With my builds you get Burst Damage no matter what, which greatly helps your team killing off those enemies. His Q and Ultimate is the carrymu. A right ultimate can carry games, you wanna lock people down and make your team do the work. With your Q, you will take kills, no matter what.

- Ultimate Reliant
- Counterjungle
- Q Reliant
- Mana Hungry
- Team Reliant
- Tanks
- No Push
- Champ

Amumu sure is a strong champion, but don't get me wrong. There are many other strong champs out there, which could harm Amumu. Despite being Amumu, he is very fragile to counterjungle, so make sure your team is guarding right and respond quickly. If you miss Q, that could be a big problem, since that's what you rely on. If your team is losing hard, it will also be really hard for you. You will have a hard time against 2-3 tanks.


When you play Amumu, these two items become important. If you feel like snowballing and just destroy the squishy enemy team, then this is a really good item, but if they got 2-3 tanks, then it might be useless in the end which we don't want. With this item you don't really get the burst that people want on Amumu, but don't get me wrong. Cinderhulk is a really strong item too, as Amumu is a supposed Tank champ. You will sustain and be benefitcal if they have plenty of tanks and CC.

Smite: Smite is essential for jungle. If you don't have Smite, you wouldn't be Level 2 after that Blue Buff or that Red Buff. That's why you will take Smite, and ALWAYS make sure you join the game with Smite, otherwise you may just have ruined the game, unless you got a badass team.

Ignite: Talking about NOT trading Flash out for Ignite, that's true. Let's not do that, but if you ever decide to do so, then play extremely aggresive, even though, aggresive Flash Amumu, may just be better unless you wanna dive the enemy jungle, but let's not.

Flash: We don't want to leave flash out, or trade it for ignite.. never. Imagine if you had to engage with ultimate and not Q. Flash in and fire that Ultimate off, so you can stun the whole enemy team, or Flash+Q so we can catch that running guy, don't let them flee.
With the Removed Runes, thing's could get rather interesting for Amumu. Well not really, we're playing Jungle, and may as well just get both after 10mins. But we will just a tickle weaker without 5+ Early Armor, or Mirror Shell. Sad day for toplaners though.Well this does affect our Amumu, and that's pretty sad. But it's not that sad though. We don't want to swap Bone Plating out with anything for now, since it's still truly powerful and we want to keep this powerfulness it still delivers. ANTI BURST thanks.
Aftershock Build 1: This is the standard Amumu build, that you would use in most situations, and it should be pretty good. So far it's working in all ranks, if you have the macro for it. You might not see Amumu often in higher elo, but that doesn't mean he can't work there, other champions are just more popular.

Predator Build 2: Amumu with Predator is rather new and interesting. It is NEVER wrong to try something else than what's on most peoples preference, and that's also shown in my Ekko Guide with Glacial Augment. And here we run Predator because it's fun.
Ninja Tabis


Ninja Tabis > ARMOR
Getting these boots in a match where they may have really much AD, is a good idea! It's what makes a good player, when to know what to build differently than what's in the tunnel vision. Ninja Tabis is always a good pick if they have at least 3 AD.

Mercury's Treads > MAGIC RESIST
Getting these boots in a match where they may have really much AP or even CC, is a good idea! It's important to stay useful rather than being one of those who die off quickly! It's really great against CC(Crowd Control) which is stun ETC.
Snowball Boots
Meanwhile "Snowball" means you getting fed and people can't stop you, think of a snowball rolling down a big snowy hill. These boots are viable if you got some insane macros on Amumu, in all ELOs. However my build with Amumu using these boots is a build you only use against 1 tank or 2 less heavy tanks. Full AP Amumu won't really do well no matter what.
Snipe Them
I don't believe it's wrong to use this item on Amumu if we're in the right game. It's all dependable on how the game goes. If you're using the Predator Build, then it means they have less tanks and you are most likely to oneshots ADC+Midlaners pretty easily. And you're not alone, so you team would be around. You get this if you're ahead. Or in a lategame where you get full build without losing early.
A Tanky Character
Meanwhile it's true that Amumu is classified as a Tank, it's not completely wrong to go this. It is possible, and I did it in Diamond 5 EUW with 14/0 once. Meanwhile having people telling me they got 14-3 games in Gold/Platinum with the Predator Build, it is possible. Just like you see Supports in the jungle and midlane sometimes. But standard Amumu build will remain the tanky Amumu.
