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.
AMUMU THE ULTIMATE HELPER
This build is for the ultimate team player and it works like a treat!
This is of course attended for a 5v5 match up as 3v3...i would just go for sunfire capes.
Items (the order of items changes depending on the style of the game)
"Mercury Treads" - Only if you are against a very heavy magic/stun team.
"Ninja Tabi" - Only if you are against a very hard hitting melee team.
If the enemy are a bit of both i tend to go for "Boots of Swiftness" - i know you dont get the 25 magic resist or the dodge chance like the others but swiftness will benefit your team alot as you want to catch up and stay as a group. This will become more clear later on.
Catalyst the Protector - this item is a great item as gives you +290 Health +325 Mana Passive: Restores 300 Health and 250 Mana upon leveling up. The passive is the reason why i go for this as soon as i can. I would get this item before the boots if your partner laner is ****.
Now that you have Catalyst the Protector you have part of Banshee's Veil. Banshee's Veil is a great item giving you +450 Health +400 Mana +57 Magic Resist UNIQUE Passive: Blocks one negative spell every 30 seconds. The passive means you will be gank proof as it will be hard for any champion coming in and trying to stun you.
Zhonya's Ring is actually a brillant item for Amumu giving him +120 Ability Power UNIQUE Passive: Increases Ability Power by 25% UNIQUE Active: Places your champion into Stasis for 2 seconds, rendering you invulnerable and untargetable but unable to take any actions. 90 sec cooldown. This item comes into play when you read "THE PLAN" below.
Sunfire Cape does +450 Health +45 Armor Passive: Deals 40 Magic Damage a second to nearby enemies. This is great for Amumu as you can just stand there with your ultimate activated therefore doing extra damage to help your team mates along.
This is where the helping comes into play
The below two items should be bought as soon as ganging up starts to happen and both teams start to stick together......or just your team for that matter.
Stark's Fervor +20% Attack Speed UNIQUE Aura: Gives nearby allied Champions 20% Lifesteal, 20% Attack Speed, and 30 Health per 5 seconds regenerated. Reduces the Armor of nearby enemy champions by 20.
Aegis of the Legion +270 Health +18 Armor +24 Magic Resist UNIQUE Aura: +12 Armor / +15 Magic Resistance / +8 Damage to nearby allied units.
So.....any allied champion with you gets an additional.....
- 20% Lifesteal
- 20% Attack Speed
- 30 Health per 5 seconds
- +12 Armor
- +15 Magic Resistance
- +8 Attack Damage
Amumu Reduces the armor of nearby enemy champions by 20 so team mates.....stay together and go CRAZY!
-Amumu at front with Banshee's Veil running in first (soaks up first magical hit)
-The enemy will go for you as your first and dont have Banshee's Veil anymore THATS PERFECT FOR OUR PLAN
IF THEY GO FOR YOU
- Activate your ring (invulnerable for 2 seconds)
- While the enemy are running in attacking you your team should then be there right behind you killing the enemy (remember about all the bonuses your giving you team)
- As soon as the 2 seconds on invinsibility ends cast your ultimate.....picture it now?
IF THEY DONT GO FOR YOU AND START TO RUN AWAY INSTED?
- Chase them with your boots of swiftness
- Bandage toss (Hopefully the middle one)
- Ultimate (this will give your team mates the opportunity to either catch up or kill them if they are close behind you?
A great skill shot which stuns your enemy before you unleash your ultimate.
This is also a great skill to escape from enemys by running through the jungle grabing onto the golem, lizard blah blah
I always unleash Despair before a use bandage toss (to do the most amount of damage of course) and with Zhonya's Ring you actually get a damage % increase because you have over 100 AP =p
Always get this first as it does great damage and doesnt cost much manna. And remember...always use tantrm after a bandage toss and once your in team battles spam tantrum intill your fingers start to bleed.
Curse of the Sad Mummy
This skill should only be used when you are in a team and you have othe team mates taking advantage of the 2.5 seconds massive range stun. (Remember this is also a great escape skill if you are being chased).
The order which you should use your skills
Despair - Bandage toss - Tantrum - curse of the mummy (only if your with team mates or if you are 1v1 and know you can get the kill)
I will do my best to keep updating and i will try to post a few post match results.
