An introduction to Magic Penetration 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 dont like to be just a normal tank and let the team do the job for me, so with this build Rammus become a really strong late game Assassin/Mage/Tank Champion.
All Rammus skills are doing magic damage, Defensive Ball Curl, Sunfire Cape and Thornmail, even our BASIC attacks with PASSIVE doing Magic damage as well!
You will be able to deal Insanely big damage To any Champion with your skills and hits cause of the combination of items-runes, for example, you will activate Liandry's Torment effect just by activating your Defensive Ball Curl, this means your attackers taking damage they will also receive %HP per second as magic damage.

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 Max HP% 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 while attacking the enemies with your CC on, cause of your Tremors you will apply SLOW TO ALL THE TARGETS around you, that means, every single target will have Font of Life activated on him and cause of Revitalize that will increase your HEALS will also increase the HEALS to your allies (from that rune)

Secret Behind Runes

Aftershock Gain an insanely big amount of Armor/Magic resist for 2.5 seconds, cause of a certain rammus "trick" that exist, this bonus effect will be go up to 6 seconds by doing the following, activate your Aftershock then press W to activate your skill, the 100% bonus armor that your W gives will also take the Aftershock armor and multiply it by 100%, after the duration of aftershock is over you wont lose 120 + 120 = 240 armor (aftershock/W bonus) but only the 120 ARMOR, that means, as you can understand that you will have the Aftershock effect for the duration of your W, that will make you a MONSTER that this rune to be the ONLY WAY to play rammus with

Font of Life Lots of people think that Demolish is a better choice cause we are "Solo Laners" but the answer is always NO. Font of Life will give your allies insanely big healing while attacking the targets that you are focusing on, so cause of your CC from your ultimate you will apply this to all the enemy team targets cause with our rammus build we will go 1v5 all in to kill them all!!!

Conditioning Gain bonus armor/mr after 10 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 5% 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 (plus shields from allies) and will make you an absolute monster cause of Ravenous Hunter heal that will be applied to all of your DAMAGE, your damage from Defensive Ball Curl, Thornmail, sunfire, Liandry's Torment will count as source of healing from your Ravenous Hunter plus Hextech Gunblade plus you will multiply everything by 30% MORE cause of Spirit Visage, together Revitalize this amount will go up to 45% BONUS HEALING from any type of source, making you just immortal!

Cheap Shot Bonus true damage each time you applying CC to the target, rammus is the KING OF CC, he got 3 different king of CC from his Q-E-R that means that this effect will be activated all the time and will apply true damage each 4 seconds, making you insanely powerful from early to full late game!

Ravenous Hunter 14% spell vamp and this is the reason of our IMMORTALITY, so much power, so much sustain that even without Hextech Gunblade you can easily go 1v5 and sustain all of their damage!

With this combination of items-runes, rammus will be an early to full late game monster, something you wont even believe in your eyes!

A great example is this game:

We literally went 1v5 under 2 nexus towers and we still survived full hp!

Secret Behind Items

Lets 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 cant lose vs ANY MELEE TOP CHAMPION!

Always start with Doran's Shield and 1 pot. This will give you the sustain needed to survive early!

At your first back you will focus to have 1150 Gold, and you will buy Bami's Cinder plus Refillable Potion

The next time you will go back you will buy Thornmail this will add you INSANE damage so early in game together with your Defensive Ball Curl you will have Damage-Armor-Magic Resist, everything that Rammus Need to dominate any lane vs any AD Champion
Then you will go for Sunfire Cape and then you will buy Sorcerer's Shoes and after that you will start building Spirit Visage as third item and start always with Spectre's Cowl that together with doran's shiled will give you even more sustain.
Our 4th item will be either Hextech Gunblade or Liandry's Torment
Both of these items will give you similar results and sustain, Liandry's Torment will give you sustain cause of the burn effect that will also count as source of healing from Ravenous Hunter, its not actually a bad choice to for this first, its up to you to decide!!
Hextech Gunblade will give you what you need to sustain ALL OF THEIR damage, plus an extra active dmg-slow effect to use and reach your targets. Hextech Gunblade together with Ravenous Hunter and Spirit Visage will make you IMMORTAL, there is nothing that can kill you, at this point of the game, you can press Q go all in into the enemy team, then press W-E-R and enjoy your insanely big sustain and damage!!

Then you will finish your build with Liandry's Torment this item will do %HP Damage that will activate with EACH ENEMY'S HIT (cause of your W) and will also be applied by your Q and R of course! Plus 10% BONUS DAMAGE while being in combat, as you can imagine, your damage at this point will be unstoppable, together with Liandry's Torment you will make sure that no target will survive, be it a full tank, or just an ADC!
Always remember that we need Elixir of Sorcery while fighting, this will give you extra AP and true damage while damaging the targets! Cause of Liandry's Torment you will activate the Elixir of Sorcery every single time, so to apply true damage to the targets will be deadly as hell!

So your FULL BUILD will look like this:
Hextech Gunblade Thornmail Sunfire Cape Spirit Visage Liandry's Torment Sorcerer's Shoes Elixir of Sorcery

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!!!!!!

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!

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 you will be able to kill ANYTHING that will be brave enough to attack you.

After the new rework now we will focus on ranking up Q first
By maxing up the Q we having 6 sec CD, and extra damage to kill our enemies and chase them down no matter how fast they are!
To make it Easier to trap my enemies, i come 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 together with the Greenfather's Gift you will do insane damage.
Just hid, charge UP Q to max up the speed hit him activate Defensive Ball Curl, Puncturing Taunt and Tremors

Even if you wont kill your enemy, he will start losing focus from this strategy.
They wont be able to go close to cs, and lose EXP-FARM so after doing this a couple of times the game is yours.

Reason Behind My Spells

Lots of my Subs and followers from YouTube and social asking me "Why are you not playing with teleport TOP?"
at all my other champions! And the answer was cause i dont need it, but Rammus is a bit DIFFERENT!
And the reason I need Teleport isnt to help my team, but to BAIT the enemy jungler to gank me at TOP LANE and kill them both. Also its going to be help me get the important items that I need for my power spikes, that items are 2:
First Bami's Cinder
Then Bramble Vest after buying these two items and cause of the combination of our runes-items-skills you will be able to 1v2 the jungler and the top laner EASILY, something most of the players dont know about!

Trust your power-sustain and try to play safe early till you get your 2 items, after that, you can go and play a little more "crazy" and destroy some people with it!!!!

Enjoy your free wins!
