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.
As you are reading this guide, I am going to assume that either you have played Amumu before or just want to see a build.
I currently am only level 20, so my mastery isnt sup up like that, but it will be and as for runes, mine are set up from switching back from ryze so let me know of your opinion
I chose Flash and Cleanse
I use Flash because when i usually play Amumu, its in a premade and in vent, so flash helps to get me in the middle of the gank targets for my Ult.
I use Cleanse because from my experience, it has saved my life, or gotten me kills more so than any of the other spells i used
I start with the regrowth pendant for the health regen, and i try to lane as long as i can without porting back for health/mana/items, generally around level 4 or 700 gold i will port back for the Philo stone.
After the stone I start to build the swift boots. These have gotten me many kills because of my build, it is more importing to be NEAR your enemy than to actually attack them
After the boots, i stack sunfire caps as much as possible in the game
Once you get one cape you will see how much damage you can put out with this mummy, in combination with his despair and passive ability
For building the skills, I went for Despair as much as i can, it is great for harassing the enemy champs, specially tanks, and it works well with my play style. Tantrum is good for farming or for any enemy champ that decides to stand and go hit for hit with you, and bandage toss is great for catching runners, but ranks of bandage toss don't increase range or stun length
I tend to play a little more aggressive when i play. I can usually get a kill around 3/4 because that is when i have all 3 of my normal abilities......if your team is losing, or you have a feeder on your team, try and stick near the turret until u can grab a cape and turn the game around
around level 10, with just your philo stone and despair, you can solo the dragon as long as you dont get an enemy champ jungling who finds you.
You CAN do this at level 8, but you need to bring health pots, but i suggest 9 or 10 at the earliest
Anyone who has rolled Amumu successfully at end game can tell you how enjoyable it is. As soon as you get your sunfire cape(s) you can start owning enemy champs 1v1 or even 2v1 (if you have been fed early) At this point your amumu will become great at pushing or ganking
