The Tactical Nuke - Full AP Malphite Mid

By Paccu

Howdy!, I'm Paccu, and I have a regrettable amount of mastery on a champ as boring as Malphite.

So I thought, well, I'm good at this champ, so why not try to MAKE him fun by turning him into a bush camping, adc-mood-ruining-hellspawn shaped like a sad rock.

90k M7 Malphite, all my experience is top, and some mid with this build, its more fun than normal malph, trust me :))

How to play lane:

Level 1-5 is very slow, every time manaflow band is up, poke with Q like any other Malphite game
Farm until nearly to (or till) level 6 and maintain poke, most mid laners will be around half health from poke at this point
Place a ward in either pixel, and back, proceed to tp in and full combo them (combo listed below, its very simple)

Its ok if you die pre-6, just always know: if they are half health, and you have ult, they are dead, just play safe and smart, only engage with ult and your power will grow

Once you get Night Harvester and some Mejai's Stacks, thats when you begin 1-shotting squishies
Last Notes: You are very hard to kill in lane pre-6 due to Malphite's base stats and passive and you don't have like any counters besides other cheese characters

As Full Ap Malphite, you don't front line, you do one of 2 things:

1. Pick off 1/2 health squishies and use Q speed to bail
2. Ult Whole Team and use Stopwatch/Zhonyas and pray

Look to warnings for deeper explanation

Please play smart, this build is a meme, but don't int your games because of it:

1. YOU ARE NOT A TANK AT ALL, VERY SQUISHY (this is a recurring theme amongst my builds)

2. You can only handle 1-3 targets at a time

3. Tanks just straight up ignore you (yes with void staff)

4. Cheesing at lvl 6 isn't always possible
Tips and Notes

Master the 1-shot rock:

1. Malphite has crazy base stats and mountain soul as a passive so even when making this build, you are hard to kill pre-6 in lane

2. Once you hit lvl 6, you practically win lane if you aren't a moron

3. Stopwatch will usually save you if you make a dumb ult

4. You ravage squishies (its not even funny)
5. Your ult cooldown will be really short late-game

6. Lastly, your combo is R->E->Q->W and start autoing till they die
Why this build
Rewatch the vids above and tell me this doesn't look ******** and fun.

Thank you for reading through this build and I hope you enjoy it/find success with it. Go check out my other serious and not-so serious other guides I have on champs like Sett, Mordekaiser, Garen, Jhin and more soon to come!
