Anyways, a friend asked me about this during a game where he was playing Mundo, and I thought i should add it in. Hopefully this helps someone.
MUNDO GOES WHERE HE PLEASES
Edit: My new summoner's name is DockTourMoonDoe.
I immediately get Mercury's Treads as soon as I need to recall. Sometimes its fairly soon cause the enemy are overly aggressive, and I die or need to recall, but usually I can wait until I can flat out buy them before I recall.
After that, it all becomes situational. If I am doing great in my lane, I go straight for warmogs. This removes all problems with using your ablities, (except for W because that costs so much) and it makes your ult heal so much more since it is based on percentage of max health. If I am doing terrible and I need to cheap item to sustain me untill I can make some more money, I get Spirit Visiage, then warmogs. This gets you some cheap health, magic reist, and health regan, while its passive makes your ult heal you for more. You can sell Spirit Visage when you need the space.
I then check the enemy team to see who is doing the most damage, or carrying ( I say both because sometimes people do a ton of damage, yet there is that one guy who last hits with his strongest ability just to get the kill; I HATE THAT GUY). I check what kind of damage they are doing, physical or magic, and build my next item from there. For physical I build a chain vest, for magic a negatron cloak. Whichever I pick, I always buy the other next, unless I am playing against an entirely attack damage or magic damage team. If that is the case, I build the one I need into the next item, Thornmail for the chain vest, Force of Nature for the Negatron Cloak. Usually I build them both, but very rarely you can get away with only building one.
After that I get Sunfire Cape for the increase in armor, health, and the passive damage. The damage when combined with your W, and you cleavering them and hitting them with your E, you do alot of damage one on one, and alot of AoE damage as well.
I finish with a second Warmogs if the game ever gets that far, and if it does, you have officially hit the unkillable stage. Unless you dive the entire team, or something equally stupid, you wont die anymore. The game I played before I made this, I was romping around in their base, with their entire team attacking me while I killed their inhibs, and I didnt die. It was HILARIOUS.
