How it works

  1. You rush Thornmail.
  2. You go full Armor.
  3. Hit or miss. Works only if an enemy team is full of physical melee damage dealers. Otherwise, play regular tank build.

How to play

  1. How is this Thornmail build for Rammus different to regular tank builds? Item order, Armor stacking and countering enemy physical damage dealers!
  2. This build is aimed to counter AD comps. Since you don't know the enemy team, you need to adapt in game. It is hit or miss. If they are heavy AP - just play regular tank.
  3. Late game, you can consider selling boots for 6th item - for even more sweet Thornmail damage!
  4. Be careful to not waste Aftershock. Try timing it and keeping it for going in.
  5. You are the spikiest during Defensive Ball Curl (W) thanks to tons of additional Armor.
  6. You don't need boots for this build. You have good mobility - Q for speed, Snowball/Ult for reach.

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Powerball can be used as an effective escape mechanism.
  2. Using taunt on a champion by your tower can cause the tower to attack your enemy.
  3. Tremors and Defensive Ball Curl can be used late in the game to obliterate towers. If you're bogged down in a team fight, it is often valuable to break off and attack the buildings.
