Bruiser Malphite -Approved by 11 Players [EUW Platinum to Grandmaster]

By Rocking Masterock
Simple introduction
A fast introduction to the weird builds shown in this guide.

Right now, this is the ONLY guide that shows true AD Malphite builds, they're not fun builds, they perform in your games when mastered, the only difference with the normal tank Malphite, Is that if you are a Malphite player, you will now have to learn a new playstyle, you have more trading patterns and more ways to even bully your enemies in lane phase, some of those hard matchups are more playable with my builds.
Why this guide?
Since Season 10 started, Riot kept giving us many ways to counter tanks, many armor penetration items, new champions with a lot of true damage and more threats for a full tank Malphite, expecially now, in Season 11 They released of the most annoying items for Malphite to face, Divine Sunderer is definitely so strong for him to fight, this season got extremely high amounts of armor penetration, so i kept feeling a bit different at playing a normal full armor malphite in my games, i kept taking high damage, so i tried to find new ways to play him, first started by adding death's dance BUT on a tank build, since it's physical damage reduction can't be penetrated, so it gives us a way to tank better, now Anathema's Chains also exist, a new item that gives a nice way of tanking, those who will build items like Kraken Slayer will be a threat anyway but not always be enough to stop you.
Why AD Malphite
AD Malphite is just a stupid excuse to fix some horrible matchups Malphite has to face recently, they were easy matchups before, but now that Divine Sunderer spellblade got changed, it's really a dangerous item to face for tanks, so, to be able to fight those who buy it, I created some builds that use the same item that counter Malphite so hard in lane, Divine Sunderer opens a new path to more winnable matchups, such as Gwen , you'll have to give a bit of yourself to win ofcourse, learn a new playstyle with a new build, and also make sure to do good moves in a fight to dodge the dangerous enemy skills.
Bruh just stop
Can you please stop starting 1v1 with R against bruisers? You wasted the only heavy CC your kit has and the enemy can freely trick you in 1v1 with ccs, ult in middle of the fight and abuse the CC to have a way to do more dps and way to make sure your enemy won't dodge the ult with flash or something, less your ult will travel, harder to predict it will be.
This Guide will be updated every patch no matter the bad or good votes it will receive from people, the guide is for Malphite mains that want to learn how i managed to climb using AD Malphite.
