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.
Build Date: 9/20/10
To be successful with amumu, you need solid team work with members who are willing to cooperate. You should be initiating team fights, but must let your allies know beforehand and ensure they all jump in as you use your ultimate. Try the build out :)
Need to always have two or more. This combination with amumu's ability, "Despair", makes him an incredible nuke.
Frozen Heart OR Banshee's Veil
This item has always worked for me. It makes it harder for others to kill amumu and ensures that I won't have to worry about mana depletion often. Also, it is an incredible item in team fights, as it brings down ability cool-down and slows the opposing team's attack rate. The faster you can use "Tantrum" and your ultimate, the better.
I will go Banshee's Veil over Frozen heart if I'm going against 2 or more casters on the opposing team, depending on which champions they are. Regardless, I would usually get Frozen Heart sooner or later during late game if possible.
I usually don't get this first, as I favor "Tantrum" for its damage and ability to take out multiple minions. Get this ability second and max it out LAST, as its only purpose is to stun and prevent an enemy from escaping, which is acceptable with only one skill upgrade early-mid game.
This is amumu's nuke ability. It's important to turn this on when chasing an enemy(s) or before jumping into a team fight. Just don't forget to turn it off :D
One of amumu's most important ability. Does a good amount of damage, cool down decreases the more amumu is hit, and can hit multiple targets. Good combination with "Frozen Heart" and for farming on minions quickly. Always attempt to max this out first, along with your ultimate of course.
Curse of the Sad Mummy
This is where amumu shines in team fights. It will stun all enemies within a certain perimeter for a short amount of time. This can turn a team fight to your favor. Just make sure to tell all allies ahead of time if you are initiating the fight so that this ability won't go to waste.
It should be hard for others to kill you. Use this opportunity to get a few champion kills, as it is very likely with the disabling abilities you are given. I don't recommend starting off a game farming with Amumu, which is just my personal preference, as I rather have him holding a lane together during this stage of the game.
Once you get your Sunfire Cape, this is where the money comes in. Farm minions as much as possible to prep for your other equipments. I don't suggest getting any buffs or farming out of your lane before getting this item. Also, if team fights break out, make sure you are in there, as your team will need your ultimate and nuke ability.
Again, you are essential in team fights and can possibly 1v2 depending on who you're fighting. Prepare pushing and diving into turrets if necessary.
