Threats & Synergies
Althought you can shread can shread her, whitout having escapes it might get onnoying. Morgana as your support will counter Leona
Kog Maw counters Almost all of the tanks during the game phase, and we all now Mundo is the Mother of tanks!!
Kog's no esacape abilities makes him easy target against Blitz, but once again Morgana or Braum may help you
Hello, I am a Diamond player, but I stalk Korean Pro players for they builds and Meta. I've taken this build from Korean Ladder #1 player - 삼성갤럭시 Deft,
I Myself play Kog'Maw (mostly mid now)
Enjoy my bullsheet-free guide!
How Is Kog'Maw currently in patches after 5.5 Patch?
After recent(5.5) tank buffs I think he will become a little bit more viable, he is unpopular in soloq, but still a good competetive pick.
Ap Kog however is pretty strong for soloq, curent meta favors tanks(and not assasins) thefore his good poke from a big range is strong now
What made him Valiable in S4?
As we have gone further in Season 4 patches, the more Kog'Maw has benefited.
- Kog buffs
- Attack speed runes over AD
- Bloodthirster meta trashed
Kog nerfs(4.12-4.14 patches):
- reduced movement speed
- reduced a small amount of damage from his ult
- Some of his flat health taken and put to health per level
Theses nerfs doesn't hurt bad, it's hard to feel something happened. It does NOT change the Kog'Maw's gameplay(unless ap Kog'Maw.
Ussual Adc Boots. But of course you can build other more bizzare shoes, like mercury's threads or Boots of Swiftness
Core Item for Kog'Maw, all stats are good for him including Ap, mana. Also spellblade (trinity passive) works fine with him
His changes in 4.10 patch made it another must have item on Kog'Maw, with your Bio-Arcane Barrage maxed and Botrk, you will deal 14% bonus damage of enemy health on hit. (6% - magic dmg, 8% - physical dmg)
Kog'Maw's job is to get rid of tanks ASAP, so Last Whisper is a great option for increasing your DPS
filler With your Bio-Arcane Barrage activated you can outrange most champions, but be wary ooooooooo when it worns out.
filler Until 6 level you won't have where to put mana( Bio-Arcane Barrage Has no cost) So spam ooooooooo your Caustic Spittle whenever you can hit a enemy champion with it.
filler I recommend muting your support/adc if playing on botlane, even if they don't flame, just to be filler12345 sure. You can mute everyone too if you want to be even more Sure.
filler It may be hard playing soloq as adc, because you need someone to defend you, You can ask fille12234r your support to peel(def) you, or play DuoQ with your friend
filler Play objective game: take turrets, Surprise Baron(if grouped you can take baron at 20 filler234567 minutes) and dragons too.
filler After taking enemy inhibitor, DON'T proceed to take Nexus turrets unless at least 1 enemy is filler123456 dead. Otherwise go back to base, group, take Baron[ or push any other lane to inhibitor. if it filler456789 becomes too dangerous move to other lane.
