Lately many options to build Amumu came into consideration.

First, the good old full tank Amumu, which only got Rylai's Crystal Scepter for the slow.

Then the 1. rated guide on mobafire, anti-mr Amumu, which uses his passive + Abyssal Mask + Sunfire Cape and rest tank items to be effective.

Then there exists the off-tank Amumu which is build with Rod of Ages, Rylai's Crystal Scepter, etc.

And finally, the full AP build, getting items like Deathfire Grasp, Rod of Ages, Rabadon's Deathcap, etc.

Which build would you choose? I personally prefer anti-mr atm. It still keeps you tanky, increases the power Sunfire Cape greatly and generally helps your team most.

Amumu+Soraka too stronk.

when i'm amumu i feel i have some freedom on build, so it will depend a lot on what i'm facing.

however, I probably get Aegis of the Legion after gp5 and boots, especially if i simply need a fast item and the team is not doing great. I go for tankiness first and then think about ap or not, because usually your team doesnt think about it and just build what they have in mind for ages.

I lately nearly never losse a build with my Sunfire Cape, Abyssal Mask Amumu build. The enemies most of the time underrate my damage and I can easily kill the enemy ad-carry. I am basically a full tank assasin xD.

Agreed with him, this seems to work really well. A Frozen Heart is also not misplaced on him; the AS debuff can be really useful (and extra mana is always good when you don't have blue buff)

Yeah, my full build is Mercury's Treads, Sunfire Cape, Abyssal Mask, Rylai's Crystal Scepter, Frozen Heart, Force of Nature. This build gives an overall well balanced HP to resistances and makes you very tanky, gives you very much utility with cdr and slows and also high damage cuz of ap, mr-red and sunfire passive.

If I am really carrying a game, I would also replace Mercury's Treads with Sorcerer's Shoes just for fun.

I think that the full tanks aren't great anymore. With so much APen and MPen and %HP items, sacrificing all damage for defense isn't a good deal now

I don't play as Amumu, but that top rated guide has a nice build. A good amount of defense and a bit of damage

The only AP item i would ever get is Abyssal and maybe magic pen boots, coupled with a sunfire he should deal a good amount of damage

Ok, first off as a jungle amumu needs to be a tank. As a jungler you will need to feed your lanes kills as they are almost always better off with them since they have access to more gold than you via more consistent minion farm. Do to this fact trying to build ap is very inefficient. You will not have the gold to get the expensive ap build that you will need to carry. Also you will still do alot of sustained damage with this build.

Masteries: 0/21/9

Runes: Armor Marks, Armor Seals, Mr/lvl glyphs, MS quints

Items:
Boots of Speed + 3x Health Potion
Philosopher's Stone
Heart of Gold
Mercury's Treads
probably time for Oracle's Elixir
Glacial Shroud
Giant's Belt or Negatron Cloak depending on main damage
whatever you didn't get before
finish Frozen Heart if you need the AS slow or the Sunfire Cape if you don't
whatever you didn't get before
you can finish the Abyssal Mask now or grab a Shurelya's Reverie/ Randuin's Omen depending on needs CDR vs More tank

Final build:
Mercury's Treads
Frozen Heart
Sunfire Cape
Abyssal Mask
Shurelya's Reverie this can be replaced by a Force of Nature if you don't build it and just sell the philo
Randuin's Omen
If you felt I contributed or am just cool, drop me some rep +1 rep?
This and anything I say are my opinions (in no way facts), that are continually evolving as time goes on,
