Hello, I'm Bewis I'm 16 years old and my peak is Grandmaster adc main.

What makes a kog maw player a good one?
Pros and cons Back to Top

+ Really high DPS
+ Feels really rewarding once you get better at kiting
+ Alot of outplay potential
+ Very fun to play


- Weak laning phase
- Struggles really hard in poke matchup
- Can't be picked blind
- Can't lane vs hook / grab champions

When to pick Kog'Maw Back to Top
You can pick vayne into more tanky team comps. If you have an enchanter support like Lulu or Yuumi it's nice to pick a more hypercarry ADC champ like Kog'Maw.
Runes Back to Top
Lethal Tempo Lethal tempo is by far the best option on kog maw since it works really well with hes W.
Itemization Back to Top
Kraken slayer Kraken slayer works well with Kog'Maw hes W and makes her damage insane, its also the best fitting mythical item for Kog'Maw.
Berserkers In my opinion Berserkers are by far the best boots on Kog'Maw since the attack speed makes a big difference, the boots give 35% for 1100 Gold and for instance a Rapidfire Cannon only gives 30% for 2600 Gold

Phantom Dancer I prefer Phantom dancer over any other of the zeal items since none other really gives Kog'maw alot of use out of the unique passive.

Wits End Wits End can be a good buy in some games aswell, since it's another on hit item.

Guardian Angel Let's you play more aggressive, especially when you have a bounty on you; and gives you 40 AD and 40 armor. Nothing more to say really, same story for every champion that can build GA.
What makes a kog maw player a good one? Back to Top
The most important thing on Kog'Maw is being able to kite properly and dodge skillshots.
It's also very important to know your limits when you are playing this champ, knowing when you can try to make a play and when to just back off. This can result into lowering your death-count and increasing the amount of plays you make in a game.
End Back to Top
Hope you guys liked the guide, please make sure to vote the guide if you enjoyed it so more people get to see my guide. If you have any further questions feel free to DM me on discord.
