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 2 upgraded items FOR FREE the Forgefire Cape and
Infernal Mask the stats alone from these two items are worth 3000 GOLD, so just cause of your passive, you will have at level 13, 3000 bonus GOLD worth of stats for FREE, making you instantly the strongest champion in the game. Not only that but you will also upgrade 1 item for each of your teammates, giving them as well stats that are worth from 1100 to 1500 per item, making them ALSO STRONGER, just cause they exist in the game with you!
Check out what our Full Immortal Ornn build can do here in a late game:
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, 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!
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! Also the damage that you are doing cause of Grasp you will receive it as heal cause of Ravenous Hunter making grasp to have 2 heal effects instead of one! that will also be multiplied by 45% 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 that together with Spirit Visage you will increase this to 35%-45% and will make you an IMMORTAL MONSTER! Also you will increase the SHIELDS that you are receiving by 5%-15% (plus the 15% bonus healing) from allies such as Janna Yuumi Sona etc.
The secondary runes tree that we will choose will always be DOMINATION and that cause we need the Ravenous Hunter rune at all cost plus one of the other 2 choices:
Cheap Shot Extra true damage after your CC, and Ornn got one the highest amount of CC in the game, you will literally activate this rune with Volcanic Rupture Bellows Breath Searing Charge and of course Call of the Forge God 4 ways to activate Cheap Shot and apply the insane true damage that this rune gives with only 4 sec CD, after each game you will realize that the damage from this rune will be more than 1200-1300 Dmg even in super early games, that shows just how powerful it is!
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 45% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage
Ravenous Hunter A MUST TO HAVE RUNE, 14% spell vamp, that means each time you using your RUNES-SKILLS-ITEMS and even HITS cause of the Living Forge will activate Ravenous Hunter effect, you will receive 14% of the damage dealt as health back, this amount will be MULTIPLIED by 45% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage and together with all the runes that we talked about will make you a total MONSTER!
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 30% (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 16.38HP 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, lets continue with the item choices now.
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 damage around you but also bonus damage after just using your CC with Volcanic Rupture, Living Forge and of course your Searing Charge while colliding with a wall plus we need cloth of armor when you got the gold, 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 start building your 4th core item, you will have free pots all GAME long and you will also 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 at the same time and also heal from the amount of damage you will repeal to champions or creeps cause of Ravenous Hunter so fight close to creeps and maximize the heal even more!
Then and cause Ornn is a super mana hungry champion we will Go for Catalyst of Aeons, to have better mana sustain and also bonus healing that will be multiplied by Revitalize and Spirit Visage later on plus of course the base HP and Mana, this item will give you LITERALLY infinity amount of mana, cause you will turn the damage that you are taking into mana while fighting so to get this item is a MUST!!
The first item that you will complete will be Sunfire Cape at this point and by combining the damage and sustain that you will have from this item, plus Bramble Vest and Catalyst of Aeons you will be literally the STRONGEST no matter what you playing against!
then we will finish the Thornmail and together with these 2 items(sunfire-thornmail) you are ready to battle any kind of enemy and win easily, even in 1v2 situations even if they got AP DAMAGE, you wont have any kind of problem, cause its going to be too early for them to get magic penetration!
For 3rd item we will finish building Catalyst of Aeons into Abyssal Mask to have the full effects of this item and be EVEN STRONGER, bonus HP,MANA,CDR,MR but most importantly infinity amount of mana and even greater heal while using our skills, this heal from the passive from Abyssal Mask will also be multiplied by 45% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage making it one of the strongest items for our type of build while of course doing 15% BONUS MAGIC DAMAGE to the enemy team, that will apply for your teammates as well!
At this point and if you are 13 level, you will receive your UPGRADES items from your passive Living Forge these two items will be Forgefire Cape and Infernal Mask to understand HOW POWERFUL these items are, the stats from the FREE UPGRADES worth 3000+GOLD, that means, that with just this, you will have stats that worth like an ENTIRE ITEM, not only that but you will also upgrade 1 item for each of your allies while gaining more levels! Making Ornn the champion that can LITERALLY UNBALANCE the game itself, just cause of the "special" items that only he and his teammates will have. Also you will receive on top of everything else the 10% BONUS ARMOR/MR from the same passive Living Forge giving you even MORE STATS = more gold value for each and every item. This game is about the stats you got and how fast you can gain them, Ornn is the ONLY ONE that can do this, buy items from anywhere he wants, have upgrades items that worth 3000+ gold and of course multiply even his stats by 10% just like that. No idea what riot thinking, but this is by far the MOST POWERFUL CHAMPION in the game!
Our next item will ALWAYS BE Spirit Visage this item might be one of the most important 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 30% BONUS HEALING from any kind of source (45% 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!!!
Also you need to finish our Boots of Speed 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 Ninja Tabi 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)
For the 5th and last item you got 3 options:
First option will 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 12.6HP per second (126 in 10 seconds) this amount, will be multiplied by your Spirit Visage as well by 30% (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 16.38HP 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)
The second option is Death's Dance a super powerful item that will give you bonus AD, CDR, ARMOR, MAGIC RESIST but most importantly the following 2 effects:
15% HEAL from the damage that you are doing from EVERY SOURCE, that apply from your skills, items, runes, hits but also something that lots of people underestimate, the ability to turn 30% of the damage that you are receiving into true damage over time, this damage can be COUNTERED by your insanely big shields and regeneration, even Second Wind itself will counter this effect and make you truly a monster!and this amount will be multiplied by 45% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage but also the second effect, that is going to turn 30% BURST DAMAGE into bleed true damage effect, letting you counter some of the damage cause of the HP regeneration that you will have from your items and runes (also will be multiplied by 30% cause of spirit visage)
Third is Liandry's Torment the reason this item is so powerful its not cause of his AP that will be used for your Q-W-E-R and of course the HP, but cause of the other two effects, Liandry's Torment is giving you 10% bonus damage from ALL SOURCES while being in combat that together with Abyssal Mask you will reach 25% BONUS DAMAGE, most people not understand what that means cause they think that we are getting the item only for its burn effect, so not only you will burn them to death cause of your INSANELY HIGH CC that you got with EVERYTHING but you will also multiply that number and all of your damage by 10% making you EVEN STRONGER! You can choose this over Death's Dance and still be as powerful, or even more!
Also its max%hp dmg will also be combined by your own INSANE MAX HP DMG with your Living Forge Brittle effect, that after using your Bellows Breath or hitting someone with your Call of the Forge God you will apply this effect and with the next basic attack on that target you will do 18% (based on Ornn's level) of their maximum health!!!
The %MAX HP damage/burn effects also will let you heal MORE cause of Ravenous Hunter that will be multiplied by 45% cause of your Spirit Visage and Revitalize
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 Cape Thornmail Infernal Mask Mercury's Treads Spirit Visage Warmog's Armor and always Elixir of Iron
Forgefire Cape Thornmail Infernal Mask Mercury's Treads Spirit Visage Liandry's Torment and always Elixir of Iron
Forgefire Cape Thornmail Infernal Mask Mercury's Treads Spirit Visage Death's Dance and always Elixir of Iron
And now 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
Its time for you to become the TRUE MONSTER of summoner's rift!
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.
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!
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.
