I like to play a more traditional Kog'Maw if I'm going to be honest.
The hybrid builds will according to me base completely on a very high attack speed (W).
It will make it very hard to kite, with a crit based with stacking Statikk shiv you can kite better :)

Also could make 2 sections, one for crit kog, and another for on hit kog (crit uses IE, BT, PD, etc, and on hit uses BOTRK and Runaans) just a suggestion

I would advise that you update the items for S4. You have Static Shiv in the intro, but Phantom Dancer in the description. Maybe talk a little about when to pick one or the other, and the various advantages (PD gives more MS, Crit, and AS, while Static Shiv is cheaper and gives the passive bonus damage). Also, it would be useful to add about the differences between BT and Essence Reaver (one gives shield, other mana per attack and cooldown) I enjoy using Essence Reaver during early-late game so I don't run out of mana as fast, but BT also gives a shield and more lifesteal. If you added a little more information on HOW to play him, and talked a little about the differences in these items I would upvote this. Its a decent guide, just missing a little more info, and is still based around S3. and, yeah the bright dividers are a little annoying (because there isn't enough content between), but meh, noones perfect.

-_- Another troll-comment that doesnt makes sense, I almost have no colors, check again before commenting **** and pls send a reasonable comment that can help improve the build, now when you just disslikes i think it's a troll-comment and it doesnt makes sanse :/


BTW that was far from a troll comment. You don't have nearly enough content to justify all of the needlessly bright line dividers.

Since you were so gracious in my guide, I thought I might stroll on over to check your's out, to see "the one right way" to build Koggy. Oh god, where do we start.

There is absolutely no armor-pen in your build. Sure you have a nice little section on when to buy Last Whisper, but unfortunately you give absolutely no good advice on what to exchange with it. I look at your build and...

"(insted of your boots) Or intead of the life-steal if you just carry the game apart and no-one have a chance against the GLORIUS Kog'Maw! (if you use this build!)"

So get rid of boots? Nah doesn't sound too good. Get rid of lifesteal? You only have one lifesteal item, Blade of the Ruined King. Are you telling me to get rid of BotRK on a Kog'maw with Runaan's Hurricane?? Do you want to have even less survivability?

Next,
I found a particular comment by devdevil disagreeing with your usage of Runaan's Hurricane in this build, and in my build too, I point out the same exact thing. It doesn't work with a critical attack build. If you want more information on why read my guide, although [sarcasm]I'm sure you already did.[/sarcasm]

Expanding on your choices, judging by your comments in many other guides, you seem to believe that starting damage on Koggy is blasphemous, and that your opening, rushing a Runaan's Hurricane, is the only way to build AD Kog correctly. First of all, I would like to point out that rushing this item is horrible, not even because of the lack of damage, but because you literally choose the best item at pushing lanes, as your first one. IT's like you are asking to be ganked constantly as an ADC with absolutely no built-in surefire escapes.

But as for damage, attack speed only works in a sustained fight, when you can make use of the extra auto attacks that faster firing speed gives you. Why, then, in God's name do you want to rush it, if the only thing Kog can do is harass with 2, maybe 3 autoattacks at a time. It doesn't matter nearly as much. Sure you can make it work, but I'd argue Kog makes more use of AD at that stage in the game.

Now finally, your grammar is atrocious. I am literally seeing comments asking you to clean up the guide since its inception, but the grammar still is terrible. I can barely finish a sentence without cringing at something you said. Like someone said earlier, it only takes copy, paste, and Word, but you don't seem to want to put in the effort.

There were many more things, but I'll take a breath here to let you respond. (Crossing my fingers!)

PS. Your notes for Frozen Mallet make no sense. What sustain? In lane? Who would be getting this item in lane??

-1 Seriously dude.

1 - Really nice and simple guide. I like it :D

2 - Like everyone else said, the grammar needs to be improved.

Other then that, great guide.
