Malphite is a tank don't get me wrong but he has the ability to gank with a High DPS. If u do get a Leviathan you have to restrain from getting into team fights with low HP. Although the reward of getting it is reduces the damaging affect of it.Why Teleport and Clarity Teleport is good way to support your team and also clear enemy champions and Clarity because malphite hassles and is mana dependent.

His passive ability Granite Shield scales as add health 10% so as build items such leviathan and warmogs it help how much u can take before it breaks. After its broken it takes 8 Seconds to build up while broken this is were your most vulnerable.

His Q or Seismic Shard Malphite sends a shard of the earth through the ground at his foe, dealing damage upon impact and stealing movement speed for 4 seconds.
Deals 80/135/190/245/300 (+0.6) magic damage and steals 10/15/20/25/30% movement speed from the target for 4 seconds.
Cost - 70/75/80/85/90 Mana Range -700
This is a Great getaway also a Savior for you and your team

His W or Brutal Strikes or as i like to call Steroids adds attack damage while inactive but when active adds armor and more attack damage.Passive: Malphite's attacks hit units near his target for 30/38/46/54/62% of his attack damage.
Active: Malphite's armor and damage increase by 20/25/30/35/40% for 6 seconds.
Cost - 55/60/65/70/75 Mana Range - 400

His E or Ground Slam or i like to call Ground Pound he does a AOE around him damaging anybody around him his armor takes a part in this due it adds 70% of it into the attack also it reduces the affected Champions attack Speed for 4 seconds.
It deals 60/100/140/180/220 plus (70% of his Armor) in magic damage to surrounding enemies, reducing their attack speed by 30/35/40/45/50% for 4 seconds.
Cost - 60/60/60/60/60 Mana Range - 350

Unstoppable Force - Malphite ferociously charges to a location,dealing 200/300/400 (+1) magic damage and knocking enemies into the air for 1.5 seconds.
Cost - 100/100/100 Mana Range - 1000

Once you have your Ult people Don't Understand that u can kill them by CC them to death.Thats the way this combo works is if you target them with the shard before u charge with unstoppable force then charge knock them in the air after the charge the shard will launch automatically slowing them down for you to Ground Pound them and turn on Brutal strikes as well and then chase them down until dead or behind turret even then push through and throw the shard if out of range.

His Ult can also be used defensively by charging through walls or towards a turret.Normally they will not focus you down obviously your a tank.

Once you get your Leviathan you want to build a sun fire cape or a force of nature depending if they have mages or AP champions dominating you, building a sun fire cape if your dominating them. You will be able to start taking massive amounts of damage and dealing out damage out.

His Ult can also be used defensively by charging through walls or towards a turret.Normally they will not focus you down obviously your a tank.

And this is my normal build when i play him i turn out with at least only with like 1-3 deaths while having at least ten kills and 15-20 assists because you don't have to have kills. Hit me up on lol my user-name is shazmoo. If you like this build Or if you want to play with me.Honestly malphite can save and dish out plenty of damage and is great in team fights he is the King of Tanks with a gank.
