I'm getting into Malphite again as a solo top, but I'm a little torn between Ghost- Flash and Teleport- Flash. In the past I've run Ghost mostly for chasing and the occasional escape. Since Malphite doesn't have the greatest CC in the world (can't always rely on my ult), it's nice to be able to keep up with quick enemies, especially after my Q wears off.

Since I'm playing solo top, I thought Teleport might be better, just so I don't leave my tower defenseless if I need to b/shop. It also has nice utility late game for split-pushing and counter-pushing.

Since I can't really decide at the moment, I want to know what you Malphite players (or theorycrafters) think. By the way, I usually build Boots of Swiftness and Force of Nature, meaning I'll get very high movespeed with Ghost, but it won't give me as much speed by itself.
Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!

Ok. you don't need ghost because of your Q that steals MS. BoS is usually a bad idea simply because both ninja tabi and Mercury's treads are better for a tank like champ like Malphite.
If you plan on getting ninja tabi, get Elisa's miracle to make up for the tenacity loss. FoN is still god for the MS boost.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Okay, that's one vote for Teleport.

I knew somebody was gonna tell me off for using Swiftness, but I've just never found a need for either of the tank boots. Thanks for reminding me about Eleisa's Miracle though, I usually get Philo stone first anyway.

I will probably not be using Ninja Tabi though. If there are enough AD champions to warrant it, I would probably just stack a boatload of armor and a thornmail to counter. The dodge might be a little useful if I was facing crit-monsters like Trynd though.
Thanks to Jovy for the sig!

I'm not saying you shouldn't use BoS. It's just, for a tank there are far better options.

another vote for tele. BoS simply aren't cost efficient for the amount of speed they add (over other boots).

I'd say Tele+Exhaust/Flash.
"I saw [Twilight: Eclipse] in theaters with a girl I was dating at the time. I spent more time staring at my toes and wiggling them than I did watching this abomination. When Edward proposed to Blank Face, I finally looked up with a revelation.
I blurted out loud, in a dead silent theater full of teenage girls on opening night "Wait a minute, Edward has no blood flow. How does he get an erection?" I heard several men laughing, and had several girls turn and stare at me.

I did not get laid that night." - Berengier817

Thanks for the input, but that's not what this is about. I just brought up the boots because they impact the effectiveness of Ghost.

Ghost is pretty meh.

Exhaust is great if you manage to initiate on the enemy carry (which is what you should do).
The moment a religious person unknowingly calls his own ways stupid: "And lol. I highly doubt you have magic powers. If you proved it I would believe you, but since you 'refuse to', I choose not to."
