This is my first serious Guide on Mobafire.
As a veteran player I am playing League for 7 years now and since the beginning I knew that you can play AP Kog'Maw, later i found there were guides for AP Kog.
Note: This won't be the prettiest guide out there, mainly because this is my first time making a guide, but it is definetly the best.
Don't downvote, if you haven't tried :(
What is a Kog'Maw
A Kog'Maw, let's call him Koggi is simply a lovely "Thing" that kills you with his lunch from yesterday... well... more or less.
Anyway, he isn't nice, no matter how cute he looks, he is dangerous!
Don't feed him or he will explode and we all will die.
Well that's a Koggi
+ High burst Damange
+ Strong early and mid game
+ Wins 1 vs 1 against almost everybody
+ Easy Roaming
+ Easy Farming
+ Can play defensivley with Bio-Arcane Barrage
+ Armor Pen and Magic Pen with Caustic Spittle
+ Living Artillery can be spammed all day
- No escape skills
- The higher the elo the harder it will be to play Koggi
- Totally lost without vision
Can secure your life sometimes if it's ignite or an 1 vs 1 or if you know you're dead you can atleast try to deal damage and then take a kill with your passive
Logically a good option, but you're missing barrier safety and you can mostly just teleport for defensive reasons
Can secure you the first blood, but it won't help you much in late games, always try to stay out of range
Nice burst, it's even doing more damage than Void Ooze , but it's not so easy to hit. You get armor and maguc penetration. If you're able to always use this to start the fight. It is especially useful if you play 1 vs 1 against a tanky champion.
Range is nice so why not use it sometimes. You also get some more damage to your auto-attacks. It can help you farming in hard situations and is always a chance to burst your enemy after you've hit Void Ooze.
BURST! BURST! BURST! That's the skill that makes Koggi still viable. All enemies hit get massive burst damage and are slowed too! It's easy to farm a full minion wave with it, but also to screw your enemys. It also looks beautiful if Koggi is casting it.
SPAM! SPAM! SPAM! And spam! Doing unbelievable damage and can be spammed all day. Also makes additional execute damage. Not more to say, but
Just buy Zhonya's Hourglass earlier or later.
Improve your burst with Rabadon's Deathcap .
As long as you don't need heal reduction, you don't need Morellonomicon . Caustic Spittle is your magic penetration.
Void Staff for the late game.
Liandry's Torment will increase your damage due to the fact that your fights may be very long using your R.
Spellvamp doesn't exist anymore like we knew it back in the day, but Hextech Gunblade can be an option.
You can play him in every elo, and there is always a lot of fun in normal games. But in High elo you shouldn't try to play him without a "matchplan". He will be an easy focus and an easy kill. But anyway he is big fun to play.
