Threats & Synergies
So easy. Shut her down early. If she shrouds, just walking and run around with you're fire. You are squishy early game so beware of her early burst.
Don't duel with him early. His passive is not to be underestimated. You won't win a trade in the early game. Try to poke him out of lane. Try to make any trades very short. That way he cant get too many stacks on you.
Pure skill matchup. Hit your cleavers more, farm better, and win.
He is my pet peeve. However never get below 30% health when he has ult. When he runs to you to silence you, cleaver him, and turn on your e and fire.
DON'T FEED HIM!!! Watch his dodge thing. If its up don't use E. Wait until its done or after the stun. Take care after he hit level 6.
His poison sucks. His blind sucks. Don't use E when he blinds you and eat all of the shrooms you can without getting low. He is very squishy so you should bee able to kill him if you can hit your cleavers often.
The shield from her ranged auto attack lasts forever! just hit your cleavers and stay out other little ground slam thing. Don't get between her and a wall because she can slam you into it and you will take a good chunk of damage.
Don't let him farm. If he gets lots of stacks he is a class 10. Try to poke him out of lane as much as possible. It's ok if you lose a trade but try to be as formidable as possible so he must be scared when he goes in for farm.
Try to kill her tentacles as soon as you can. If she ults, disengage immediately. No matter what. Her ultimate will destroy you. Her tentacles do massive damage so be vigilant in dodging them.
Pretty easy. Rush a Spirit Visage and you will win. Try not to get hit by his little munchkin things. If you tower dive him beware of his snare. He will be hard to out trade if he has his ultimate on.
He might out sustain you if he is good at farming. don't get low on health. His execute damage is outstanding. Rush a Spectre's Cowl. Then on purposely get hit by his long range AA's to proc the passive on Spectre's Cowl to heal.
Please for your team's sake don't feed her. Get a Dead Man's Plate early and play safe early. After you first back you might be able to go in on her but she is really squishy. if you can get fed against her good job. She will wreck your team in the late game though. Good luck.
He is one of the most powerful champions early game. If his rage bar is over 50% don't even go in to AA a minion. He will dash in and stun you and wreck your health bar early game. He falls off late game though. If he lets, disengage. The AOE damage on his ult will make you definitely loose the trade.
He is very easy to harass early. You should be able to push him away from minions early on with your cleavers, Grasp of the Undying, and your E. Late game he is a monster. Try to shut him down early and don't let him get fed.
So easy. He has very big mana problems and he can't kill you. you can poke way better and harass him off of minions and you should kill him a good amount in lane. He does beat you in the cc department but you should deprive him of farm so much he is useless in team fights.
Relatively easy. Just don't fight him when he has full red bar. You can bait hi into thinking he can kill you from his ultimate and then use yours and run I'm down.
Infected Cleaver: (Q) You throw a cleaver in a strait line and it deals current percent health damage and slows.
Burning Agony (W): You're so tanky you can light yourself on fire to do damage to enemies in an area around you. Somehow lighting yourself on fire boosts your tenacity.
Masochism: (E) You increase your attacks to hit like a truck for 5 seconds. You get increased AD when you have less percent HP. Your fisrt attack does extra damage based on your max HP and gain range.
Sadism: (R) You take a percentage chunk of your current health to heal for a percentage of your max health over 12 seconds and you get increased movement speed.
Next, either get Demolish to get first tower and get objectives for your team, or if you are in a rough match up, take Bone Plating to survive the early game.
Next, in my opinion, the only good rune is Conditioning to get tankier for late game.
Then, finish the resolve tree with Unflinching for some tenacity.
For secondary, you must go sorcery. Nimbus Cloak is insanely over powered on Dr. Mundo you get even more MS and it feels so strong.
Then take Celerity to get lots of AD when you proc Sadism and Nimbus Cloak and to get even faster through all parts of the game.
Doran's ShieldThis is what I start no matter what. With this, one Health Potion and a Warding Totem you should be able to stay in lane far more than your opponent.
Sunfire CapeThis item is amazing. As a tank you will be next to enemies for a while. When you practically have 2 Burning Agony's, it's gg. Plus the health and armor is great too. It also helps you push so you can get to towers better. I will build this every game.
Spirit VisageThis item was made for you. Health, MR, CDR, and increased healing. Need I say more? BUILD THIS EVERY GAME! Without it, your ultimate, Sadism, will not heal you for very much. If you need more MR you can build Adaptive Helm.
Titanic HydraBuild it every game. Health, AD, and your AA scale with HP in a cone attack. Very good. You also will hit a massive power spike when you complete this item and will have some huge one shot potential on a squishy target. Only don't build this if you are way behind. It is a common rule of thumb that if you and your team are behind to stop building damage and build tank. If you are playing a tank.
Sterak's GageThis item is beast on Dr. Mundo. A good amount of health. Good AD. Huge shield and tenacity in fights. It helps you stay alive to wreck the enemy back line.
ThornmailIt is a great item against people like Master Yi, Tryndamere, or Vayne. It is much more viable now with the update.
Warmog's ArmorHEALTH. You just won a team fight and you tanked 5 people and a turret. You used your ult and you are low on health. just don't take damage for 8 seconds and its like your ult, Sadism, is back on. :) It can also be used as a taunt if you just stand in front their turret and gain all your health back. It is a good last buy.
Dead Man's PlateHealth, Armor, and a passive. You get increased MS and a slow. Amazing. If you are getting kited or need to move around the map more, this is a good item to build. Good last buy.
Randuin's OmenHealth, armor, AS slow, critical strike damage reduction, and a slow. Build when their ADC builds crit or they have a Yasuo, Jhin, Tryndamere or other high crit damage champion. Also give an active slow. Good last buy.
Guardian AngelThis item is a good last item if you are the one that is carrying the game and need to be the one who lives.
Zz'Rot PortalArmor and MR. SPLIT PUSH. The best split push item. Try to place the portal near the tower you are trying to get but not in it. The tower will focus it first and kill it in one hit. Don't buy this if they have no outer turrets. It is hard to get inner turrets with it as you are so close to their base and it is easier for them to kill if you back away.
Adaptive HelmThis item is good if you are going against someone with constant Magic Damage like Teemo, Azir, or Cassiopeia. But get Spirit Visage first.
Abyssal MaskNo longer viable on Mundo because of the addition of mana.
Knight's VowI like to buy this if I have a hyper carry adc that needs to live like Kalista, Kog'Maw, Vayne, Draven, Jinx or Twitch.
Mercury's TreadsMR and tenacity. I build it when they have mostly AP or have lots of cc like Morgana, Nautilus, or have lots of hard cc champions.
Ninja TabiArmor and AA damage reduction. I build it when they have mostly AD and AA reliant champions like Kalista, Master Yi, or Yasuo for example.
In team fights, your job includes splitting the fight into two fights. You vs the enemy back line, and the rest of your team vs their front line. Their back line can't kill you because of all the tankiness and healing, you kill them because of all the big damage you do and MS you get from your ult. It is a good idea to flash to get to the carries so you can take them off guard.
You also must know when people hit power spikes. You must know that Pantheon and Renekton have very strong early games and people like Gangplank and Nasus are late game scaling champions.
You must get attention. If the other lanes aren't doing good, you need to either roam or do whatever you can to call the enemy jungler to you. Make the enemy mid laner come to you so you can soak up lots of pressure and give your team breathing room. You can do this because you are just so tanky and you can almost always get away if you have your ultimate on. By hopefully killing your enemy top laner and pushing in their tower a lot, you should get the attention of their mid laner or jungler or both. If you die, you die. Don't get mad for getting pressure up top. Since you don't have hard cc, you need to do well in the early game because you will fall off. You need to make the enemy think you are worth their time while you are strong. Later on in the game you will fall off hard, so make yourself useful while you can. If you have a good chance, have the bottom lane deep ward and make a Teleport bottom and maybe take a tower.
