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. I started playing league when Jinx came out. This is my first guide. I hope you all like it!

And now, into the first chapter: Abilities.

Back to the top


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 you need to use these to be great. Your E is a slow. Use it when your enemy is trying
to escape. Your Q weakens the target so use it to make your abilities more effective. Then there is your W. Bio-Arcane Barrage gives your auto attacks some sweet Magic damage. Your Guinsoo's Rageblade boosts that magic damage! You must use w always to give you more damage and sweet range. And it works on turrets!

Pros / Cons

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

Getting trough your weaknesses

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


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.

This is the end of my Kog'Maw guide! I hope you learned something new like my own combos. It took a long time to make this guide! If you all liked this guide, I can make a Nami Tidecaller guide. Special thanks to R3veal and my 116 other lol friends for inspiring me to make this guide! Bye for now and see ya!
