An introduction to Immortal Ornn Build
Lets start about why we call Ornn with this build IMMORTAL and why we choosing this build instead of anything else, the answer is pretty simple cause its going to be close to IMPOSSIBLE to die, no matter what enemies you will have against you!
After the new season changes Ornn became 10x TIMES STRONGER, his passive Living Forge giving you 10% bonus armor, 10% Magic Resist and 10% bonus hp from ANY SOURCE that means from both Items and Runes that will increase even further by upgrading the items of your allies 4% Per Item that you are updating for your allies, meaning up to 16% + 10% = 26% Bonus Armor,MR and HP, making Ornn literal the KING OF STATS!!

Ornn is one of the most UNIQUE champions in the entire game, his potential is one of the greatest for few simple reasons, not only with the combination of items-runes-skills you will be the strongest of all, but you also got the ability from your passive Living Forge to have 1 Mythic item upgraded FOR FREE and with this free upgrade you will increase the value of the stats of each Mythic item for up to 1000+ Gold per item for YOU and your ALLIES, to understand what that means, we will play with Sunfire Aegis that it will be upgraded to Forgefire Crest this item, will give have increase stats that will be further increase for you cause of your passive by another 10% of their armor-mr and another 10% for its HP and even further as we update the items for our allies. So the 1000+ Gold worth of stats will be even higher the more you go to late game!

These stats not only will help you sustain more but also make you do more damage, cause the Forgefire Crest damage effect that will going to increase up to 72% is going to scale with your %Bonus HP, the more HP you got, the more damage you will do around you per second, in full late game, with 5000+Hp and 3000+ Bonus HP, this effect will increase by 30 per second as it is, so the base damage per second will be 70 and it will increase up to 120 dmg around you PER SECOND and the moment you got the full effects you will apply this damage two times with your basic attacks as well, making Ornn to be one of the STRONGEST immortals cause of this!

Check out what our Full Immortal Ornn build can do here in a late game:
And here is another Divine Immortal Build with awesome results:

With this build Ornn will be a total MONSTER in ANY LANE, be it Top, Mid, support,BOT or even Jungle cause we maximizing his potential greatly by using the BEST item-runes-skills combinations that will make you unstoppable while of course having tons of fun while playing him!
Ornn is one of the champions right now that not only will totally destroy any champion, or even 3 champions (1v3) with our build, but will also support his teammates cause of your insane CC and of course your passive Living Forge that will give them FREE upgraded items (Free 1000+ worth of Gold stats to each one of them), also he got one of the highest AOE CC combos in the entire game!

Lets get started by explaining Ornn is the STRONGEST of all!
Secret Behind Runes
Lets start with the runes and why to play with this set of runes is one of the most important things!

For Resolve:
Grasp of the Undying One of the most powerful runes in the game for champions like Ornn Grasp got 3 effects that most people cant understand, max %HP dmg, max %HP Heal and another one that will give you 5 permanent HP each time you are activating it, that means, as long as you are keep fighting you will only get STRONGER AND STRONGER! Its one of the runes that got unlimited potential and thats what we need! The healing from Grasp of the Undying will also be multiplied by 40+% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage

Demolish Bonus damage to towers, it will help you push and take gold plates faster and move to help your teammates secure objectives!

** Second Wind Another monstrous rune, HP REGAIN each time you receiving damage from the enemy that scales with your MISSING HP, people keep underestimate it, but cause of this rune and Doran's Shield you will be totally UNSTOPPABLE early, cause of this double regeneration from level 1 you will have ability to trade with the enemy for AS LONG AS YOU WANT and kill them easily while being Full HP!
Second Wind is one of the MOST gold efficiency runes in the game, the late game stats just from this rune after we did some calculations are worth of 3000+ GOLD while its early game stats are worth 600+ Gold making it the MOST POWERFUL late game rune that exist for our IMMORTAL MONSTERS! And the regeneration from this will be multiplied by Spirit Visage

Revitalize One of the most BROKEN runes 5%-15% BONUS HEALS & SHIELDS that together with Spirit Visage you will increase this to 40% and will make you an IMMORTAL MONSTER and now cause of Winter's Approach you can finally use BOTH of these effects non-stop! Also you will increase the SHIELDS that you are receiving by 5%-15% (that will go up to 40% from Spirit Visage) from allies such as Janna Yuumi Sona etc.

For the secondary runes tree we got two different options!


Cheap Shot Bonus True dmg after your CC, that means you will activate this rune non stop with Q-W-R making you use also true damage on your engages!

Taste of Blood If you want better sustain, then this is your option, bonus HP each 20seconds while damaging your enemies, this amount will multiplied by 40% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage

Ultimate Hunter Bonus Ability haste for your Ultimate, our Call of the Forge God is one of our biggest weapons for our Immortal Ornn, now we will use it FASTER and destroy them more EASIER while having a bigger impact in teamfights!!

And also Precision:

Triumph Missing HP Heal plus bonus gold for every kill/assist, you think the heal value is low for this rune, but in reality you will be gaining more than 500-600 HP per kill/assist, cause you will multiply this heal by Revitalize and Spirit Visage

Legend: Tenacity Bonus 30% Tenacity, making you have a total tenacity of 60%+ that will let you avoid ANY CC while fighting 1v5! One of the most important stats in the game that will also let you the option of going for Plated Steelcaps instead of Mercury's Treads to counter both CC and Basic attackers with lots of ON-hit effects!

If you want to understand how Heals, Shields and Regeneration works and why we are choosing these runes over anything else, we got our league masterclass that will help you:

By having these combination of runes you will realize that Ornn is many times stronger than you think, making him impossible to die while having the damage to kill them all, even if you are 1v5!

**To fully understand the power of this rune Second Wind we will have a short example, Second Wind giving you health regeneration equal to 6 (+ 4% of your missing health)
cause its scales with the missing HP and cause we will have 4000-5000+ TOTAL HP or even more with our BUILD, the moment you are with only 1000 HP left you will have regeneration 12.6HP per second (126hp in 10 seconds) this amount, will be multiplied by your Spirit Visage as well by 25% (its a shame that Revitalize is not scales with HP regan a well) that means, from the Second Wind alone and without calculating anything else you will have HP regain of ~16‬HP per second (Imagine that you also have, the base hp regain, Spirit Visage hp regain, Warmog's Armor hp regain to sum them up to even greater number)

Now that we understood why we are playing with these runes, let’s continue with the item choices now.
Secret Behind Items
Remember, cause of your Living Forge all of your items will receive ALSO A 10% BONUS Armor/MR and HP boost, making our build even stronger the more items you add to this MONSTER!
As we talked above Ornn is a special champion, so we will start with Refillable Potion then farm the first 6 creeps while avoiding fighting the enemy and ALWAYS BUY no matter what the Doran's Shield this will give you an insanely big amount of regeneration that from the early stages of the game will make you unstoppable and unable to die! Also, Ornn is one of the champions that got the HIGHEST base HP regain in the entire game by combining our Doran's Shield, Second Wind and this base HP regain, we will be able to win any trade easily!

Ornn doesn't need to go back, so you will just buy all the items you want while being in lane, that making you INSANELY more powerful than anyone else, cause you will be able to buy items, while they are going to be with the start ones. If you got the gold to buy item parts, go for it, each one of them will make you have advantage over your enemies.
Our first item will be Bami's Cinder especially after the buffs not only you will have bonus HP and cause of Volcanic Rupture, Living Forge and of course your Searing Charge will make sure to keep this effect activate while sticking to the target for as long as you want,
plus we need Tear of the Goddess when you got the gold, this will help you not only have bonus mana to spam your skills easier but ALSO let you stack Tear of the Goddess sooner making Winter's Approach to be even a Second item after Sunfire Aegis

Note, something that people ignoring is that by buying Refillable Potion as soon as possible in the game and for Ornn case from level 1 till the moment you will start building your 4th core item, you will have free pots all GAME long and you will only sell it and gain back some of the gold that you invested to this item, making it TOTALLY FREE!

The next item will always be Bramble Vest cause of the armor and its effects will make us even stronger, you will repel back damage while applying the Grievous Wounds effect that will reduce their healing!

Then we will complete our First Mythic item that will ALWAYS BE Sunfire Aegis for the reasons we talked above, HP, ARMOR, MR, ABILITY HASTE, Bonus TENACITY per completed item and a burn effect that will make you be the strongest in the entire game, in full late game you will be able to do from this item alone 120+Dmg/Sec + 120 Dmg per second as burn dmg in full stacks to every target around you, total of 240 BURN MAGIC DMG PER SECOND to everything that exist while fighting, without even calculating the insane stats that you will get the moment you will reach level 13 that will be upgraded into Forgefire Crest and make you even stronger!!

Then we will finish the Thornmail and together with these 2 items( Sunfire Aegis- Thornmail) you are ready to fight any kind of enemy and win easily, even in 1v2 situations even if they got AP DAMAGE, you won’t have any kind of problem, cause Sunfire Aegis together with the Living Forge buffs with give you more than enough Magic resist and after 13 level that you will get the upgrade you will be totally unstoppable, and cause of Thornmail heal reduction effect that will reduce their healing after applying your cc on the target by 60% will make you even more powerful than ever, cause not only you will instant kill all, but you will also make them unable to heal back!

Also you need to finish our Boots along the way into MOST OF THE TIMES Mercury's Treads cause we need the extra TENACITY effect, plus to balance out the ARMOR and MAGIC RESIST!
If you playing against FULL AD teams with ZERO CC or close to ZERO CC, then go for Plated Steelcaps especially against champion that using basic attacks as main source of damage, like for example Tryndamere Yasuo or Master Yi etc. this item will COUNTER THEM completely, cause it will reduce their pre-armor reduction damage by 12% (its pretty big, cause after that you will reduce it even further cause of your resistances)

Now its time to finish Tear of the Goddess into Winter's Approach a super CHEAP and INSANELY POWERFUL item that is game changing for our Immortal monsters, not only you will have close to unlimited amount of mana to use your skills but you will also convert % of your Mana as HP making you even stronger cause you will convert this bonus HP to even bigger number cause of your passive, that will multiply any Armor, MR or HP value by 26%, after getting the full stacks with Winter's Approach you will also have a HUGE SHIELD to use and overpower all. Now Ornn finally got a cheap shield item to make you stronger and also multiply this shield effect by 15% from Revitalize and up to 40% the moment you will finish your Spirit Visage

Our next item will ALWAYS BE Spirit Visage this item might be one of the most important and powerful to have items for our build, the reason is cause of the combination of Revitalize that we talked about you will have an insanely amount of bonus healing, that will help you sustain and easily right now destroy any kind of enemy, be it FULL AD or FULL AP and even have the power to 1v3 easily! The stats that Spirit Visage gives are the most gold efficiency stats that you can buy in the game, not only you will have HP-MR-CDR-REGAIN but you will also have 25% BONUS HEALING and SHIELDS from any kind of source (40% with revitalize) that applying for the healing from your teammates as well, so just imagine playing with a Soraka or Janna with you or even deadlier to have Yuumi a good Yuumi that will use aery and revitalize will make you TOTALLY UNSTOPPABLE if you got a duo and you want to try this combo, I will tell from now, its going to be something beyond imagination!!!

As last items you got the following choices for our Immortal Ornn Monster:

1. First ALWAYS be the MOST gold efficiency item in the game, its passive alone is 1000% gold efficiency of its cost as a stat and this item of course is Warmog's Armor not only you will have HP, CDR, HP Regain but you will also have an insanely out of combat HP REGAIN, imagine that you will have the power to go in, fight literally for AS LONG AS YOU WANT and then, if you are TOO LOW, to flash or just simply walk away, wait for 10seconds and then go in again with FULL HP, something else that right now is a good time to realize, we also playing with the rune Second Wind this rune is giving you health regeneration equal to 6 (+ 4% of your missing health)
cause its scales with the missing HP and cause we will have 5000+ TOTAL HP or even more with our BUILD, the moment you are with only 1000 HP left you will have regeneration 16.6HP per second (166 in 10 seconds) this amount, will be multiplied by your Spirit Visage as well by 25% (its a same that Revitalize is not scales with HP regan a well) that means, from the Second Wind alone and without calculating anything else you will have HP regain of 20.75HP per second (Imagine that you also have, the base hp regain, Spirit Visage hp regain, Warmog's Armor hp regain to sum them up to even greater number, cause as we said, Ornn got one of the HIGHEST BASE HP REGAIN in the game, making him with our full build the STRONGEST MONSTER of all)

2. Sterak's Gage this item will give you stats that you will LOVE, AD, HP (that will increase even further with your passive) and two insane passive effects, one will heal you and will stack for each champion that is hitting you or getting hit by you, this effect will scale with your HP, making you to heal more than 100HP PER SECOND from Sterak's Gage and another effect that will give you a huge amount of shield that will be multiplied even further cause of Spirit Visage and Revitalize by 40%, making Sterak's Gage a must to have item, that for our Ornn build is going to be EVEN STRONGER than the other immortal builds!

3. Another option here is going to be Redemption it will give you HP, ability haste, HP and MANA Regeneration but also increased heals and shield by 20%, its active effect will let you HEAL yourself and your allies and also do 10% max HP true damage to your enemies, trust me, this is a HUGE NUMBER of true damage to such a huge AOE, while going 1v5!

4. As final choice that you can play with is going to also be Gargoyle Stoneplate this item will give you ability haste, armor, mr that will increase your armor-mr stats by 15% while fighting and also give you an active effect that will give you a HUGE SHIELD EFFECT and when I am saying HUGE I totally mean it, this item will scale with your BONUS HP, the bonus HP we got with ornn is around 3000 HP, that means the item alone will give you a ~3100 SHIELD, this shield will be multiplied by 40% from Spirit Visage and Revitalize making you have a 4340 SHIELD INSTEAD!!!!!

Also remember, with each item we are finishing we are gaining 5 bonus TENACITY with Sunfire Aegis mythic effect, so that means just from completing 4 legendary items, we will gain 20 TENACITY for free, making us being TOTALLY UNSTOPAPBLE while receiving zero CC from the enemy team!

And also never forget to always get your Elixir of Iron for BONUS HP = More damage, TENACITY and also bonus movement speed for your allies that following you into battle

The Full Ornn Item build will look like this:
Forgefire Crest Thornmail Mercury's Treads Winter's Approach Spirit Visage Warmog's Armor and always Elixir of Iron


Forgefire Crest Thornmail Mercury's Treads Winter's Approach Spirit Visage Gargoyle Stoneplate and always Elixir of Iron


Forgefire Crest Thornmail Mercury's Treads Winter's Approach Spirit Visage Redemption and always Elixir of Iron

And now my ultimate Balorian, you can fully understand why this combination of items together with RUNES is BY FAR the most powerful one that you can even play with on Ornn
And it is time for you to become the TRUE MONSTER of summoner's rift and DESTROY ALL!
My Strategy to Follow
Lets talk about the strategy here. To play with Ornn inst only use his PURE Strength as your weapon, like any other WARS, at league you need to use your HEAD as well to win the game.
So lets talk about what you need to focus.

Creeps(FOCUS on FARM): The most important thing is to focus on your farm, you need to farm fast and if you can kill all the creeps without missing even one. This way you will take the lead from your enemy champion, dont be afraid to use your skills for last hits even at the 1 level.

Learn how To improve your Farming and Wave Management by watching our League Masterclass:

Stay Alive: To not to die at lane and not have any kills is more worth than to be 3-3 or 4-4 with your enemy Lane champion.
Your build focusing to be the strongest at the MID-Late game, doesn't matter if you cant kill now, focus on farm and you will be able to show your true Strength at the right time of the game.

Ornn got every tool that he needs in order to literally DESTROY equally easy melee or range match ups, you got slow with Volcanic Rupture and stun with Bellows Breath Searing Charge as long as you hit them and even more slow-knock up with your Call of the Forge God that if you afterwards hit the target you will also stun them! Making Ornn a champion with the highest amount of CC in the game and thats why to play with Cheap Shot is super important, cause you will literally activate it each time!
The combo that you can use and literally make your enemy UNABLE TO ESCAPE is the following, your Volcanic Rupture need some "time" to appear and make itself a terrain in order for you to hit your Searing Charge and damage and AOE stun the target, but you can predict this time easily, what you need to aim and hit the enemy champion with your Volcanic Rupture then calculate in your head 0.5-1 seconds and instantly press your E Searing Charge that will NO MATTER WHO he is, instantly receive the stun, its impossible for them to dodge that cause of the slow from Q, after that, hit then activate the W Bellows Breath apply the FULL %MAX hp dmg with the skill and also hit the target that got the Brittle effect to apply even MORE MAX HP DMG, with this simple combo you can literally melt and kill any target, afterwards is up to you what to do, wait till you got your Q-W-E again and go in again, or use your Call of the Forge God to finish the target, this skill will have two effect, first slow the target and the second time that you will "send it" towards them, you will knock them up but ALSO apply the Brittle from your passive to do even MORE damage. Ornn is a TOTAL MONSTER not only he got the ability to survive and tank any kind of damage, but also he got an insanely big amount of MAX% HP AOE DAMAGE and AOE CC, making him one, if not the STRONGEST IMMORTAL champion in the entire game!

So remember the most important thing in this game is FARMING and to STAY ALIVE to overpower and kill them all will come as long as you focusing on these two things! Our Immortal Ornn build will always be the strongest in full early to full late game, no matter how bad you play early, clear all the waves that is EASY with your skills and items, get your gold that you need, use your Call of the Forge God to start the teamfights and be the one to engage first and instantly CC all or just go alone behind the teamfight and kill the enemy bot laners first, the moment they will see you, they will try to stop you but they will quickly understand that their tries is not even going to matter in front of the IMMORTAL MONSTER that you are, play with focus and you will always end up VICTORIOUS! Our different Ornn match ups below will show you how to play this champion and show you the TRUE POWER of this champion and how to fully adapt to our gamestlye while using our builds!
Reason Behind My Spells
Lots of my Subs and followers from YouTube and social asking me "Why are you not playing with teleport TOP?"
and the answer is simple and i will give it to all of you as well.

Im playing always with Flash and Ignite, for the following reason, Teleport is a skill for any of players don't have enough confident in themselves that they can DESTROY the enemy TOP laner.
Its as simple as that, Teleport can be used to Come back after a fast back or go to other lane and "Help" your team.
The reason all playing with Teleport is cause they want to find the "easy" answer behind the top lane "go help others and exp there", i cant judge them really, but if you really want to say yourself that you actually won the TOP Lane then you need to do it SOLO.

TIP: Lots of you will think "but when my team need me i can teleport there", NO. You dont need to teleport there. You can be there by foot or if you cant join and help them, then continue with the OBJECTIVES, push your lane destroy towers or take Dragons with your jungler etc.
Almost every rush TP to help BOT or MID Lane end up by being all DEAD together with you.
Cause when you TP, you suddenly change the entire MAP Phase, you going somewhere where you will be 100% seen and try to either Dodge your skills or Kill you first.
So go by foot, and go from behind them by using the FOR OF WAR.

Play with confidence, FOCUS while trying to improve and enjoy this game, as long as you follow our builds and these simple steps you will see that you can improve greatly and be the very best version of your self in the game but as person as well. This is a GAME, if you are not enjoying while playing you are doing something wrong.

Remember, play this game, not to just "win" but to also ENJOY and IMPROVE, by doing that, without caring about the results, you will see that you will be able to IMROVE more and that means to also WIN MORE, our IMMORTAL Ornn will help you easily destroy any of them while having TONS OF FUN while doing that.
