Malphite ARAM How to play

  1. How this build is different to regular tank build? Item order and who is on enemy team. If they are heavy AP - just play regular tank (switch mid-game).
  2. This build is aimed to counter AD comps. Since you don't know enemy team, you need to adapt in game. It is hit or miss.
  3. You don't need boots for this build. You have good mobility - Q for speed, Snowball/Ult for reach.
  4. Dont rush your mythic.
  5. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  6. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!
