Amumu, The Sad Mummy
Updated June 14, 2011

[image loading]

That is correct! Considering that there appears to be a distinct lack of a guide for everyone’s favourite emo undead ten-year-old, I figured I’d step in and give my two cents on how Amumu ought to be played. Really feel totally free to add your personal opinions and builds to the thread and I will update as vital (specifically if mine turns out to suck)!

Abilities
[Passive] Cursed Touch – Amumu’s attacks minimize the target’s Magic Resistance by 15/25/35 for four seconds.

[Q] Bandage Toss – Amumu tosses a sticky bandage at a target, spectacular and damaging the target when he pulls him self to them. (320 at max)
[image loading]


[W] Despair – Overcome by anguish, nearby enemies drop a percentage of their maximum well being every second. (24 magic dmg + two.7% of hp/sec at max)

[image loading]


[E] Tantrum – Permanently reduces the physical harm Amumu would take. Amumu can unleash his rage, dealing harm to surrounding enemies. Each and every time Amumu is hit, the cooldown on Tantrum is lowered by .five seconds. (175 dmg/ten phys dmg reduction at max)


[R] Curse of the Sad Mummy – Amumu entangles surrounding enemy units in bandages, damaging them and rendering them unable to attack or move. (two sec stun, 350 dmg at max)

[image loading]

Amumu can and ought to be constructed mostly as a tank. When his AP ratios on [Q] and [R] are quite good, AP does certainly absolutely nothing for Despair (it gets .five% of AP!!) and Tantrum ratio (.five) is meh. You basically will not hit really hard or quick adequate to be a correct caster. There is a caster-form make outlined later in the guide but I would only suggest it for a lot more seasoned players as it is a lot more challenging to pull off properly. (Higher danger/higher reward)
I will outline each jungling and lane Amumu builds right here. His mid and lategame are fairly a great deal the similar so I will just combine the two components at the finish.

Jungle Amumu

Runes
Marks – 9x MPen
Seals – 9x Flat armor
Quints – 3x Flat HP or Movespeed
Glyphs – Mres/lvl or MP5/lvl or CDR/lvl.
In the most current patch, Amumu does not have to have a wonderful deal of assist from runes to jungle but these look to be the most optimal mixture when contemplating his early to late game transition. I personally do not use MP5/lvl but I can see why a single would. I like CDR/lvl due to the fact you can never ever have Curse up quickly adequate!

Masteries
Normal jungler fare: 1/14/15 or 1/21/eight, creating positive to take SoS and buff duration. Taking lowered harm from minions when paired with lvl five Tantrum will make some minions do harm!

Summoner spells
Ghost/Smite. ‘Nuff stated.

Ability Order
WEEQE – This enables you to grab your stun for early ganking when leveling E does not raise mana price when rising harm –&gt more rapidly jungling. Following that, R &gtE&gtW&gtQ.

Cloth + pots –&gt Boots –&gt HoG –&gt Merc Treads –&gt HoG/Aegis/Catalyst/Negatron –&gt Banshee’s –&gt Sunfire –&gt Randuin’s –&gt what ever the hell you want. He does not have to have AP to deal harm so make him as tanky as you have to have to, when paying interest to what enemy champions are constructing. A Rylai’s for the utility in teamfights is generally a fantastic option. I have never ever attempted Shurelya’s Reverie on Amumu nevertheless it appears like a fantastic item for him soon after you have a lot of the earlier make—additional well being/hp5/mp5/CDR Incredibly fantastic for Mooms. There is one thing to be stated about CDR boots to aim for 40% CDR for Amumu given that this can reduced Bandage Toss cooldown to five secs or so at max, and lowers Curse cooldown to about 75 secs which is wonderful…situational, I suppose. If you get the boots do not get Shurelya’s and vice versa. Amumu will get all the rest of the CDR he desires from Randuin’s/runes/masteries. General be versatile with your tankiness if the opposing group is all ranged AD carries get Tabi alternatively of Mercs for instance. The order in which you get your tank things is versatile as properly, every little thing soon after HoG #1 or two and boots I would say is totally up to the opposing group composition and your personal.

Above guide operates but is slightly outdated. Improved jungle builds now consist of Sapphire + 2pots opening –&gt Cata, or even superior, Regrowth pendant + pot –&gt Philosopher Stone as Quickly as you can get it. HoG is no longer a beneficial item for Amumu to get, and at least till Philostone is nerfed, you ought to be taking benefit of the truth that you are going to never ever have to bluepill to heal once more when nevertheless earning gold. The rest of the item make nevertheless operates, although I would nearly absolutely throw in Abyssal Scepter for your group when you can.

Jungling Path
I am not the most seasoned when in comes to jungling so I will lay out right here what I know. Considering that the most current patch (1…111) Amumu’s jungling speed has been tremendously enhanced thanks to reduced mana price of [W] and reduced incoming harm from [E]. A normal start out at blue–&gtwolves–&gtwraiths–&gtred/twins–&gttwins/red provides you level four in below four:00 conveniently. Even more rapidly if you get a small assist with Ancient Golem. Port back, grab boots and prepare to gank. (It may well even be feasible to gank ahead of porting back, but I would reserve this for a lane with powerful cc or a slower a lot more cautious jungle time.) If you start out with Philostone jungle make, choose a single up as Quickly as you have adequate gold for it. If you start out Sapph + pots opening, port back for Ruby Crystal and attempt to remain at higher HP. This make is not almost as quick but it in the end pays off truly properly. Amumu’s level four gank is not amazingly powerful as he only has the a single skillshot stun, so be content material if your initial attempt only send your opponents back to base. Your level six gank, nevertheless is an simple FB if it hasn’t occurred but. Q+R imply your opponents will be stunned so lengthy they will not even know what hit them. Really feel totally free to tower dive if you have to have to Amumu can take it. There are other feasible jungle paths, but none are as strong general as this a single. If you happen to be worried about getting ganked at blue you can attempt a wraith jack or to start out at your personal wraiths, but know your path will be slower. Amumu does not counterjungle quite properly, but he is seldom at low HP so he is challenging to gank himself. A stolen blue will certainly cripple Amumu in the jungle given that he is so mana-hungry so certainly ward your blue if you happen to be not beginning there, and ward it soon after you have taken it after. On the other hand, if you have gone with Philostone path, your slower jungle pays off even if you drop blue to a Nunu or one thing, due to the fact the mana regen enables you to continue with out getting to go back for mana, so lengthy as you happen to be not regularly spamming E.

Lanemumu
When not as powerful as a jungle mummy, Amumu in lane does ok as a babysitter, and can clear minion waves quite proficiently, creating it challenging for enemy champions to push. Be wary although, he is quite simple to zone out at early levels so make positive your lane companion is productive in that regard. Amumu ought to never ever have a solo lane.

Runes
Marks – 9x MPen
Seals – 9x Flat armor or MP5/lvl
Quints – 3x Flat HP
Glyphs – Mres/lvl or MP5/lvl or CDR/lvl.
Amumu’s abilities consume up a LOT of his mana in the early game so if you consider you happen to be going to be harassing a lot, I would suggest either MP5/lvl seals or glyphs. It really is absolutely feasible to not use them at all although, as lengthy as your companion will be assisting out.

Masteries
/21/9 or /9/21. I choose a safer make with significantly less harassment so I take /21/9 but /9/21 will let you to hang to that a great deal a lot more mana and will make harassment less complicated.

Summoner spells

Ghost/Flash or Ghost/Ignite. I will not go into detail why the other ones are not especially beneficial for him. A Flash ult can be redundant on Amumu due to the fact of Bandage Toss, but if you have positioning challenges, really feel totally free. It really is an exceptional escape tool as properly if you locate you happen to be acquiring caught and do not really feel like dying for your group.

Ability Order
QEWEE – Early stun for lvl 1 teamfights/facecheck gank is pro. Following that, R&gtE&gtW&gtQ for simple harassment, farm, and significantly less harm from minion aggro.

Doran’s Shield –&gt Boots –&gt HoG –&gt Mercs–&gt HoG/Catalyst/Negatron –&gt Banshee’s –&gt Sunfire –&gt Randuin’s –&gt and so forth.
Quite a great deal the similar issue. Lanemumu does have farm challenges specifically if he’s babysitting (and his autoattack animation is HORRIBLE for final hits) so I could absolutely advocate 2xHoG. Construct as tanky as vital. Thinking about CDR? Study above.

Above is outdated. Grab a Philostone and remain in lane forever. Also Aegis if no a single else on your group grabs it. The rest of the tanky make is fairly a great deal the similar as the above updated jungling Amumu make.

Utahime’s Lanemumu

An AP powerhouse, use this make to take benefit of Amumu’s insane AP ratios on his Bandage Toss, Ult, and Tantrum. You can even solo a lane very nicely with this make, although I would not suggest it for newer players as it needs some skillshot and harass finesse. Also your group may well yell at you/not let you ’cause they will consider you happen to be trolling. Fuck ’em ’cause you happen to be NOT.

Things
Regrowth pendant + pot –&gt Philostone –&gt Merc Treads –&gt Abyssal –&gt Sunfire/Deathcap/Hourglass –&gt What ever.
Ability order: Max E initial, although you likely want to be maxing Q soon after acquiring a point in W due to the fact Q has a superior ratio, and does decent harm at max level. You are going to be needing it for harass/ganks/stuns on the reduced cooldown.
Amumu is nevertheless relatively naturally tanky and will survive decently in teamfights, nevertheless operating about with Despair on will get you killed a lot faster than with a complete tank make. Also vital to note, is that this make truly operates so properly due to the fact of how OP Philostone is correct now it enables Amumu to shrug off harass even less complicated than usual. When they nerf it, this make will likely grow to be a lot significantly less viable. It may well be feasible to do this with Catalyst–&gt RoA alternatively, but I doubt it operates as properly.

Midgame
Ok some turrets are down, some lanes have been lost/won, and it is time to roam. At this point you want to remain with your group. ‘What a novel notion!’ you say, ‘A tank that stays to tank for his group!’ I cannot emphasize this adequate. Amumu is nearly Generally the distinction in between a won or lost teamfight. Your Ult nevertheless has a lengthy cooldown right here, so if your group can afford to let you hog Blue (I insist on it a lot of the time…even when I know I should not) go for it. You are going to be capable to hold Despair toggled on nearly indefinitely and as quickly as you catch an individual out of position Q on low cooldown suggests a rapid kill when nevertheless getting it up to chase quickly soon after or initiate if vital. You can solo dragon simple but it may well take a when. Bring your group more than and force fights on dragon as properly…spammable AoE plus percentage-primarily based AoE suggests no a single is protected, not even tanks. Farm minion waves throughout lulls in action if you happen to be certainly Confident a teamfight will not be taking place. Amumu farms incredibly properly mid and lategame and conveniently tends to make up for any lack of gold from early game. Your tank things will come quite promptly when your CS is above 250.

Lategame
You have your Randuin’s, you have your Banshee’s, you have 3k well being and 200+armor/Mres. DIVE LIKE A BOSS. You laugh at turret fire when you wrap your enemies in cursed bandages. Make positive you are the initial a single to enter a fight Generally. Your opponents will be avoiding you like the plague—do not let them. The a lot more time spent focusing you to cease that infernal sniveling, the a lot more time you group can wail on theirs (no pun intended). Be cautious due to the fact a blown ult is a Big screwup for Amumu. He is a game-changer a single way or the other make positive it is in your favor.

Guidelines + Tricks
These may well look fairly intuitive but I figure I will get a handful of of these out there:
– Bandage toss will pull you by way of walls. Enemy group fighting at Dragon? Fly by way of the wall an open up a can of whoop-ass when your group filters in by way of the other side.
– On that note, if you happen to be operating away from an enemy champion, by way of the jungle or otherwise, you can use your Bandage toss to get additional ahead of your opponent or latch onto a jungle creep and fly by way of a wall to security.
– Boots three and Rylai’s turns you into an unstoppable chasing and killing machine. Just turn on [W] and watch them die. Flash to escape? No challenge. Bandage toss and continue to pour on the hurt. Only advisable for enjoyable or troll builds.
– If you happen to be caught in a lane on your personal and you happen to be about to be turret dived, use Q or R to stun them in turret variety soon after you feign operating away. This is generally a rapid and simple kill or at the quite least stalls till your group can come assist.
– A dead Amumu with four dead on their side suggests you happen to be performing your job effectively. Sit back and laugh when their turrets fall like rain. As your talent increases, you are going to find out when and how to retreat from a teamfight when staying alive and nevertheless managing to ace their group.

Amumu is a single of my absolute most preferred champions and he remains an exceptional choose all the way up to higher levels of ELO. He is really hard as hell to take down, and enjoyable as hell to play. Use him properly, summoners.
