An introduction to My Immortal Rammus Build

The reason I created this build was to counter all the "melee" cocky TOP laners till now, with their picks as Irelia, Yasuo, Jayce that giving hard time to everyone EXCEPT Rammus. But I don’t like to be just a normal meat ball tank and let the team do the job for me, this build will make Rammus be an IMMORTAL MONSTER that will be able to 1v5 all easily!

Rammus is a special case of a champion, his skills alone can do tons of damage without adding anything else, but by combining all of the items that we will talk in our build together with the combination of runes that you will ALWAYS FOLLOW and never change, will make you the strongest one by far, be it against AD type of enemies or FULL AP, Rammus will never fail to sustain and kill entire enemy teams even while fighting totally solo!
The reason behind it is cause of your W and Aftershock you will have enough sustain and DAMAGE cause of the combo of W-Passive-Thornmail hit-damage return effect that will repel back damage that you will never believe its possible and cause of Riftmaker, you will also HEAL LIKE CRAZY from all the damage you will be doing and on top of that you will aply also % BONUS DAMAGE making this combination of items the strongest by far for Rammus

Here you can see what our Rammus Build can do in Full Late Game:


So you will have Insane damage but is it just this? No, it isnt. You wont just have Damage to call yourself an Assassin. You will have 4000+ HP At level 18, Insane Armor/Magic Resist, Healing, %TRUE DMG effects with each skills-Hits! Damage-Stun-Slow the combination to carry yourself to any Elo you want with Ease.
Also cause of Font of Life not only you will be powerful yourself but you will also heal your teammates with your CC, cause of your Q, E, R you will be able to activate Font of Life and heal yourself and your allies easily!

Lets now talk about why our runes will make Rammus be the strongest of all of our Immortals!

Secret Behind Runes

The following combination of Runes will make Rammus truly be an IMMORTAL monster with no equals, by combining the runes and the items you will see later on, you will understand how to break this game completely while fighting 1v5 as an Immortal!

For Resolve:


Aftershock Gain an insanely big amount of Armor/Magic resist for 2.5 seconds, this bonus armor/mr effect will be multiplied by your W, that means you will gain 100% of that effect together with the rest of your armor/mr that you got, Aftershock alone will give you 120+ armor and will go up to 240+ armor with W and another 100+ Magic Resist!

Font of Life After the new changes, this rune will be a must to go for our Non-Shield immortals like Rammus, with this rune you will gain a heal effect after your CC something but also heal your ally,plus we will multiply this heal effect by 5-15% cause of Revitalize and 25% more cause of Spirit Visage later on!

Conditioning Gain bonus armor/mr after 12 min of the game, now you will ask me why I am not playing with Second Wind instead, Rammus is the ONLY CHAMPION that we doing that, cause the % BONUS ARMOR/MR that this rune gives will also be multiply your armor/mr from your Aftershock + Defensive Ball Curl that means that you will have even CRAZIER sustain than before, making this rune also a MUST TO HAVE!

Revitalize No matter what, no matter what allies you got, always play with this runes, you will gain from 5% to 15% bonus healing/SHIELDS that will let you survive longer!

For the secondary runes tree we got!

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

Last Stand Bonus damage while you are low hp to destroy everyone that dares to hit you! And cause of the Riftmaker you will also have a stacked bonus damage effect that will let you heal MORE as well!

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:



Now that you fully understood the power of our Runes, it’s time to go to the important part, that is to understand the item choices and item order that you will always follow in order to be ready to overpower them all!

Secret Behind Items

Let’s start with the Items and our Items Strategy. I come up with this build after hundreds of different combinations, to create this final build that can’t lose vs ANY CHAMPION!

With all New Item Changes our Rammus build became way stronger than ever before, with the Jak'Sho, The Protean and Riftmaker as core items, you will see that Rammus became an asbsolute monster!

Always start with Doran's Shield and 1 pot. This will give you the sustain needed to survive early and you will keep Doran's Shield till literally the last item that you will buy in full late game, cause of how this start item works, while being activated (fighting) you will gain regen stats that making the entire item goes up to be 300% gold efficient, that means the stats that you are gaiting cost 1300+gold while you are paying only 450 and you will have it from lvl 1!

At your first back you will focus to have 1050 Gold, and you will buy Bami's Cinder plus Refillable Potion the reason we are playing with the pot, is cause we will have it for all lane phase long (and not only) and we will sell it ONLY if we start building our 3th item!!

The next item that you focus on getting fast, before finishing anything else is going to be Bramble Vest and finish it into Thornmail as fast as possible, one of the most important item for Rammus and overall the other immortals! Thornmail will give you the ability to repel damage back that will scale with your bonus armor, you can guess what that means, as talked above, cause of how Aftershock works together with Conditioning plus your W you will have TONS OF BONUS ARMOR, making Bramble Vest together with Rammus repel damage to have enough to fight 1v2 or even 1v3!
In some situations even while having only Bami's Cinder and Bramble Vest you will be able to 1v2 the enemy top and jungle if they decide to gank you!

The second item that we will finish is going to be Sunfire Aegis, HP, ARMOR and a burn effect that will make you even stronger, after just these two items, Sunfire Aegis & Thornmail Rammus will already going to be unstoppable against AD-Type of damage and with a decent sustain against AP-Type as well cause of Aftershock and your W!


Then we will finish our Boots into MOST OF THE TIMES Mercury's Treads cause we need the extra TENACITY effect, plus to balance out the ARMOR and MAGIC RESIST, we will only have Spirit Visage for magic resist and together with the boots it will be MORE THAN ENOUGH!
If you playing against FULL AD teams with 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% (it’s pretty big, cause after that you will reduce it even further cause of your resistances)

After that we will go for Jak'Sho, The Protean this item will give everything that Rammus need and EVEN MORE, increase your ARMOR, MAGIC RESIST, HP and bonus %armor/mr while fighting, making you an absolute beast from the stats alone!

With just these 3 items, Rammus can already 1v5, while doing an insane damage.
But damage means nothing if you don't have a bonus heal effect, thats why for our next item we will be playing with Riftmaker, this item will give you bonus AP, HP, Ability haste, BONUS DAMAGE EFFECT and a DAMAGE TO HEAL Effect and make Rammus not only have the greatest sustain in this game, but also the biggest healing from damage as well, Riftmaker will be our 4th item after as we go into the full late game!!

For last item we got the following options:


1. Spirit Visage this item will give you HP, MR, HP REGEN, ABILITY HASTE and the STRONGEST effect in the entire game, 25% bonus heals and shields that together with Revitalize will go up to 40+%, making you unable to die while fighting 1v5 and healing from all the damage that you are doing!! As you can imagine Spirit Visage and Revitalize will increase the healing from Riftmaker even more and make you a monster!

2. Liandry's Torment Bonus AP, HP, HP from AP effect but most importantly, a % bonus damage effect that will stack with Riftmaker and increse your damage like no time before and also apply to EVERYTHING that hitting you a %MAX HP damage effect even if these targets are hitting you from the max range of the game!!

3. Warmog's Armor one of the strongest items for sustain in the entire game, you will gain HUGE AMOUNT OF HP, Hp regain, Movement speed and a passive effect that will let you remain full hp in late game. You can go in, do damage, kill something then go out of combat go full hp and then go in again!!!


4. Death's Dance you think this is strange, but not at all, by having Death's Dance you will incrase your AD, Armor, Ability haste and have a passive effect that will turn burst damage into true damage over time effect, that will give you time to heal some of this damage as you are not going to instantly receive it!!
Making it perfect for 5th or in full late game as 6th item after selling your boots!



Damage, sustain, Immortality!!! Everything a Balorian need to always be victorious, now that you understood the combination of runes-items you are ready to start your FREE ELO Journey, be sure to check our gameplays to fully understand how to use the champion right and may the FREE ELO Be with you!!

My Strategy To Follow

Before we talk about the strategy you need to ALWAYS follow the this combo:
Use your Q or E to activate Aftershock first then ACTICATE YOUR Defensive Ball Curl this will multiply your ARMOR/MR greatly and you will keep these stats even after the duration of Aftershock is over, rammus is a champion that you are not really need "skills" what you need is to PRESS Q, go into the entire enemy team, press fast Defensive Ball Curl before their CC, activate your R and hit something with E, after that, what you need to do is to ENJOY THE SHOW!!!!!!
Remember that you will also have enough sustain to fight them even under towers, so after finishing Sunfire Aegis and Thornmail tower’s damage wont matter anymore, you can freely dive all game but remember to activate the W fast enough and start moving away from the tower range after 4-5 seconds to avoid the stacked damage to hit you without having the bonus ARMOR-MR from W!

Lets talk about the strategy here. To play with Rammus isnt only use his PURE Tankiness 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: 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!

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 early as the game goes on and after buying Thornmail together with Defensive Ball Curl and later on Demonic Embrace you will be able to kill ANYTHING that will be brave enough to attack you.

After the new rework now we will focus on leveling up Q first
By leveling up the Q we are having 6 sec CD, this will let you either CHASE someone that running or simply walk away from a gank, a powerful tool that will save you multiple times!
To make it Easier to trap my enemies, I came up with the Rengar style trick, its simple. Just hid in the Bushes and make use of the FOG OF WAR, this way your enemy champion will have an interesting surprise
Just hid, charge UP Q to max up the speed hit him activate Defensive Ball Curl, Puncturing Taunt and Soaring Slam

Wanna Rank up even faster? Then Watch our League Masterclass about Ranking up:
Even if you won’t kill your enemy, he will start losing focus from this strategy.
They won’t be able to go close to cs, and lose EXP-FARM so after doing this a couple of times the game is yours.
