Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello Summoners and welcome to my first build ever !
Malphite is one of the best tanks out there and there are no builds for him !! I was like WTF !!
About Malphite :
One thing u should know about Malphite he depends on Health and Armor . hes an awesome ganker and could disable a whole team !
Pros and cons
Amazing armour (passive)
good movement speed
Best initiator for team fights EVER because of Ult !
Squishy after the passive
no real damage or stun before ult
Runes and Masteries :
I use magic penetration marks , Dodge seal and Magic resist Glyphs because im a tank and my abilities do magic damage and i wanna make out of my Burst damage and dodge with my masteries plus my Seismic Shard gives me a hell of a movement speed boost . For masteries i use 9/21/0 again because im a tank and i get 9 in offence for magic penetration .
Summoner Skills :
Ghost for chasing and escaping and use it before the ult for an easy kill with no escape !
Clarity because Malphite is mana hungry and u wanna use ur money for Armour and Health
Build Order :
First Dorans Shield because of the armour and health which helps u out in the begining . then buy shoes either Ninja Tabi or Murcury Treds depending on the opposing team .
after that try getting Randuins Omen because of the CD and the passive which makes chasing enemys a lot easier . then get Sunfire Cape ! its my favorite item for tanks and it has awesome farming potential . Then when the game get really long Get Gaurdian Angel .
Seismic Shard - Using his primal elemental magic, Malphite sends a shard of the earth through the ground at his foe, dealing damage upon impact and stealing movement speed for 4 seconds. HARRAAAAS !! best harasment move . Does good damage . and slow the opponent and speeds u up ! Movement Vamp LOL
Ground Slam does magic damage plus 70% of his armor which makes his
Brutal Strikes - Malphite hits with such excessive force he deals damage to units around his target. He can also call upon his strength to increase the damage he does for a short time.
Passive: Malphite's attacks hit units near his target for 30/38/46/54/62% of his attack damage.
Good for farming and extra armour boost . my least favorite ability .
Active: Malphite's armor and damage increase by 20/25/30/35/40% for 6 seconds.
Unstoppable Force - Malphite ferociously charges to a location, damaging enemies and knocking them into the air. This is the best move ever !! Burst damage , stun and awesome chasing and escaping move . Use it Wisely !
passive Granite Shield Grants him a shield for up to 10% of his maximum health which gets better the more health he has .
Tip & Tricks :
harass till lvl 6 . ur a tank dont let ur lane mate die . Ult is best for ganking . use it before they see u and they wont know hit them .
Constructive criticism is always welcome and this is my first build so take it easy :)
