Oh, hello!

...And my Twitch for streams! Here!

Hello! Im EtuSnake, but you may call me Etu. I love playing league. Im telling you the basics of Kog'Maw. Im a Kog'Maw main and I have over 200k points on him. I started playing league when Jinx came out. This is my first guide so I hope you all like it!

And now, into the first chapter: Abilities.

Back to the top

Caustic Spittle: Your Q weakens the target so use it to make your abilities more effective. I always shoot q firs and then do basic attacks and other things.

Bio-Arcane Barrage: Then there is your W that gives your auto attacks some sweet Magic damage. You must use w always to give you more damage and sweet range. And it works on turrets! Remember your low mana pool!

Void Ooze: Your E is a slow. Use it when your enemy is trying to escape. It gives you and your teammates a great +

Living Artillery: Imagine you being a sniper and getting that last 200 hp of your enemy with a single shot or two. Use it wisely so you won't waste your mana!

To be a God'maw like myself, you need to use combos that I call Ability Combos. These combos are quite easy to do. I made some tutorial videos for all of them!

Q + W combo

Q + R combo

W + Flash, E + R combo (You can use this if the enemy is running away)

Q + E + W + R combo

Flash + R combo

Flash + Q combo (Use this to weaken your target)

Now I will list some of the pros and cons of playing Kog'Maw .

-You are one of the strongest adcs in the game!
-You will shred tanks faster than any other adc!
-Super good when fed (when using this build)
-Can be a good combo with any support or any stun!

-You are super slow even with boots!
-You are the squishiest adc in the game.
-Can be killed easily with ganks and cc
- Blitzcrank is dumb

Back to the top

Kog'Maw is one of the strongest adcs as I said, but you have so many weaknesses. That is why im listing you the ways to avoid them!

He can be your counter trough the entire game. When he is hunting for you, DON'T use E to slow him down, because that will make you stand still for a while. When something like this happens try to get help from your team. If you are in lane and this happens. Run (and flash if you have it) to your tower. If in the jungle, try asking help form your support.


If you let him grab you in early game, then you have lost the match. Avoid hooks and shoot when he has abilities on cooldown. He is tanky, but if he builds full ap then try avoiding harder. He can hook you trough a wall into his team. Stay alert and don't make this happen. Farming safe is good tip for early game. Ask your jungler to help you kill the enemy botlane duo.

Tristana's Rocket Jump is very dangerous for you and you need to avoid it all the time. Don't let her stack her Explosive Charge! When her abilities are on cooldown, try to give the litte yordle some spicy auto

Back to the top

Doran's Blade: Basic start, Gives a nice lifesteal.
Doran's shield: Start vs a very aggressive opponent.
BOTRK: Always must buy item, remember its slow!
Runaan's hurricane: Must buy Kog item. Makes your attacks multi target.
Frozen mallet: A defensive item. Makes your attacks slow enemies!
Maw of Malmortius: Great offensive item. Gives magic resist and some lifesteal.
Stormrazor: Good offensive item. Combos with your other items

To farm easily, you can use your W Bio-Arcane Barrage to make more damage. Your E Void Ooze can easily slow and deal little damage to the minions. You can't really use Q Caustic Spittle to farm. Kog'Maw's ultimate Living Artillery is a good multi target spell, so you can use it to farm.
