Theorycrafted Gwen Build with an unexpected item

By Philex
Hey all! Welcome to my Theorycrafted Gwen build which has a spicy, unexpected item within it!
Who am I?
I am Trikanoid or Felix, a Garen enthusiast, 4fun player, theorycrafter and small content creator. I've played Garen for a solid 11 years and counting, not as in one tricking him, but rather on and off.
So your first question is most likely "Why is a Garen main making a guide for Gwen?"
That's because I'm not a main nor am I an OTP, I'm just someone who plays 4fun and dabbles on a ton of champions.

I am also trying to bring back Build Diversity, after Riot destroyed their own game and made every role have its own must go build with no differences at all.
Why make this guide?
Stumbled upon Manamune Gwen when I was playing ARAMs and was playing Gwen when a thought came to my mind, "I build Manamune on Sylas so surely Manamune Gwen would also work?", and voila! This build was born.

It has a weaker 3 item spike than if you were to go Rabadon's Deathcap 3rd but has a stronger full build than the normal Gwen build.

PS: I'd love it if, anyone who tries out my build after reading, to send me their replays/highlights/vods/etc so I can see whether my theorycrafting worked for everyone or just in certain elos.
Why Manamune?
As I stated before, it was a thing I thought up of one day and then decided to take it into practice tool to test out.


No Manamune:

About a 500 damage difference with full combo which means Manamune is the best 5 item build for Gwen!

As for 3 item powerspikes which I talked about earlier:


Rabadon's Deathcap

So... yeah, if you're looking for a stronger 3 item spike then it is better to get Rabadon's Deathcap before finishing Manamune
Thanks for reading!
Thanks for reading and I hope everyone who reads and uses this guide success in their games!

If you enjoyed and want to share your success, whether it be scoreboard screenshots/vods/replays/highlights/etc, please send it to my email:

Once again, thanks for reading!
