HI MY NAME IS C4TUNA AND I'M HERE TODAY TO TEACH YOU HOW TO PLAY MALPHITE IN THE TOP LANE. IT'S EASY ONCE YOU FOLLOW MY TWO STEP PROGRAM 1. GROW A MASSIVE PAIR OF TESTICLES 2. THERE IS NO SECOND STEP

I PICK FROM ONE OF FOUR POTENTIAL RUNESETS WHEN I PLAY MALPHITE TOP [highlight]VS A MELEE I CAN SAFELY AUTOATTACK AGAINST[/highlight] ASPD REDS ARMOR YELLOWS MR (OR MR/LVL) BLUES MOVESPEED QUINTS [highlight]VS A HARD PUSHER WHO WILL FORCE ME TO CS UNDER MY TOWER[/highlight] THE SAME BUT WITH AD REDS [highlight]VS SOMEONE WITH RANGE OR WHO CAN EASILY DISENGAGE FROM YOUR Q-E POKE[/highlight] THE SAME BUT WITH MPEN REDS [highlight]VS A HARD AP NUKER LIKE CASS OR RYZE, ALSO OLAF[/highlight] MPEN REDS HP/LVL YELLOWS MR BLUES HP QUINTS IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO ALL THESE RUNES AND ALL THESE RUNEPAGES, I RECOMMEND THE THIRD SET AS IT IS THE MOST CONSISTENTLY RELIABLE. I USE THE 1ST PAGE TO JUNGLE AS WELL, SO KEEP THAT IN MIND IF YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO PLAY EITHER ROLE. [highlight]WHAT THE FUCK, WHY MOVESPEED QUINTS INSTEAD OF ARMOR?[/highlight] 1. ONCE YOU'VE USED YOUR ULT, MOBILITY IS YOUR BIGGEST WEAKNESS IN TEAMFIGHTS. YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO POUND THEIR AUTOATTACKERS *AND* PEEL OFF YOUR SQUISHIES, WHICH MEANS RUNNING AROUND A WHOLE FUCKING LOT. 2. IF YOU ARE ABOVE THE LEVEL OF 6 AND YOUR ULT IS NOT ON COOLDOWN AND YOUR JUNGLER OR MID LANE IS NOT CURRENTLY EN ROUTE TO TOP LANE TO GANK, YOU ARE FUCKING WASTING IT. HEAD MID AND ULT WHERE IT WILL MORE LIKELY THAN NOT BE A GUARANTEED KILL IF YOU PLAY IT RIGHT. ROAMING IS AN IMPORTANT FACET TO ROCKETMANPHITE 3. IF YOU ARE FOLLOWING THIS GUIDE, YOU WILL BE WEIGHED DOWN BY YOUR ROCK SOLID SACK AND WILL NEED TO COMPENSATE FOR THE ADDED BAGGAGE [highlight]WHAT IF I WANT MR/LVL BLUES INSTEAD OF MR?[/highlight] SURE IF YOU'RE POSITIVE THAT YOUR LANE OPPONENT AND JUNGLER DOES NO MAGIC DAMAGE. LOOK, THAT 12 MR IS GONNA MAKE A MUCH BIGGER DEAL IN THE LANE THAT IT WILL IN TEAMFIGHTS. I'D RATHER HAVE IT IN LANE WHEN I DON'T NEED IT, THAN NOT HAVE IT IN LANE WHEN I DO.

[title][img=skills/malphite/p.png] Passive: Testicle Shield[/title] [number]Malphite is shielded by the weight of his massive, swollen balls which absorbs damage up to 10% of his maximum health. If he has not climaxed for 10 seconds, this effect recharges. [/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE TRADING IN LANE, DON'T BE AFRAID TO TAKE A BREATHER IN BETWEEN COCKSLAPPING YOUR OPPONENT TO RECHARGE YOUR STAMINA [title][img=skills/malphite/q.png] Q: Seismic Shard[/title] [number]Deals 70 / 120 / 170 / 220 / 270 (+60% of ability power) magic damage and steals 14 / 17 / 20 / 23 / 26% movement speed from the target for 4 seconds. Cooldown 8seconds Cost 70 / 75 / 80 / 85 / 90mana Range 625[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] SIMPLY FUCKING AWESOME. USE IT IN LANE TO SET UP FOR GROUND SLAMS THEN RUN OUT WITHOUT A CARE IN THE WORLD. YOU ARE FUCKING IMPOSSIBLE TO CHASE AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THE MANA FOR THIS BABY [title][img=skills/malphite/w.png] W: Brutal Strikes[/title] [number]Passive: Malphite's attacks hit units near his target for 30 / 38 / 46 / 54 / 62% of his attack damage. Active: Increase Malphite's armor and attack damage 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% for 6 seconds. Cooldown 14 seconds Cost 50/55/60/65/70 mana Range 400[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] DON'T EVEN FUCKING LEVEL IT UNLESS YOU'RE IN THE JUNGLE, IN WHICH CASE IT'S SUDDENLY YOUR BEST FRIEND ALTERNATELY: MAX IT FIRST AND GET 6 TIAMATS [title][img=skills/malphite/e.png] E: Ass Pound[/title] [number]Malphite slams some tender flabby buttflesh dealing 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 / 220 (+50% of his Armor) magic damage to surrounding enemies, reducing their attack speed by 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50% for 4 seconds. Cooldown 7 seconds Cost 50/55/60/65/70 mana Range 400[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] THIS IS THE SINGLE BEST ABILITY IN THE FUCKING GAME 50% ASPD SLOW THAT'S NOT MINUS 1.25 RECURVE BOWS THAT'S THEIR CURRENT ATTACK SPEED, CUT IN HALF PRETTY FUCKING AWESOME 95% UPTIME WITH MAX CDR HURTS LIKE HELL SINCE IT SCALES OFF YOUR ARMOR CLEARS CREEP WAVES IN A FUCKIN JIFFY THIS IS YOUR BEST FRIEND [title][img=skills/malphite/r.png] R: Unstoppable Force[/title] [number]Malphite charges towards the target area, dealing 200 / 300 / 400 (+100% of ability power) magic damage and knocking enemies into the air for 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds. Cooldown 130 / 115 / 100 / 110seconds Cost 100mana Range 1000[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] HAHA YOU THOUGHT I WAS GONNA MAKE AN EJACULATION JOKE FOR THIS ONE SERIOUSLY I WAS JUST JOKING, THIS IS THE BEST ABILITY IN THE GAME AIM IT SO YOU INITIATE THE FIGHT, DISABLE THEM, AND PUT YOURSELF IN PRIME ASS-POUNDING POSITION IF YOU HIT THE AP AND SUPPORT WITH THIS BUT GET YOURSELF CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE AD TO OMEN AND ASSPOUND THAT'S TOTALLY FINE TOO. PRIORITY SHOULD BE TO KILL THE AP SINCE HE'S ACTUALLY ABLE TO DO SOME FUCKING DAMAGE WHILE THEIR AUTOATTACKERS HERP DERP FOR NO FUCKING DAMAGE WHATSOEVER GANK WITH IT. COMBINE WITH TP FOR HOT GANGBANGING ACTION. BURST IN LANE IF THEY'RE FOOLISH/BALLSY ENOUGH TO HANG AROUND IN BURSTING RANGE. MOST PEOPLE ARE SMARTER THAN THAT WHICH IS WHY YOU DON'T TAKE IGNITE. I HOPE YOUR BALLS ARE BIG ENOUGH TO SEAT FOUR BECAUSE WITH THIS SKILL YOUR TEAM IS GONNA BE FLYING TESTICLE CLASS TO WIN CITY [highlight]HIT THEM FROM BEHIND[/highlight]

MAX E THEN MAX Q ULT WHEN YOU HAVE A CHANCE DON'T EVEN FUCKING LEVEL W UNTIL IT'S ALL THAT'S LEFT WHY? YOU DON'T HAVE THE MANA REGEN IN LANE TO SUPPORT A 3RD ACTIVE SKILL. IT'S %-BASED, MAKING THE ACTIVE A VERY MINOR BOOST UNTIL YOU HAVE THE BUTT-TONS OF ARMOR YOU WILL INEVITABLY HAVE IN LATEGAME. ONCE YOU HAVE LVL 3 GROUND SLAM YOU CAN CLEAR WAVES IN 2 HITS, SOMETHING THE CLEAVE DOESN'T HELP WITH--BUT IT WILL UNFREEZE A LANE IF YOU ARE TRYING TO KEEP THEM AT YOUR TOWER. ALTERNATELY IF YOU ARE AGAINST A RANGED TARGET THAT YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE GETTING CLOSE ENOUGH TO HIT E'S AGAINST (LIKE FUCKING TEEMO OR MANY APS) YOU SHOULD MAX Q INSTEAD OF E FIRST AND JUST TRADE WITH IT

FAQS: [.]Should I get AP on Malphite? DOES MALPHITE LOOK LIKE A PUSSY ASS AP CHILLING IN THE BACK AND SLINGING LIGHT, GLOWY BALLS AT PEOPLE? FUCK NO, IF MALPHITE COULD THROW HIS BALLS, IT WOULD END THE GAME INSTANTLY IN A VICTORY AND AUTOMATICALLY UNINSTALL FOR THE LOSING TEAM. CDR INCREASES HIS DAMAGE DONE, HIS E UPTIME, HIS Q UPTIME, HIS W UPTIME, AND THE FREQUENCY OF HIS ULTS. CDR ALSO COMES ON PRETTY FUCKIN CONVENIENT ITEMS. CDR BEATS AP ANY FUCKIN DAY FOR MANPHITE, AND AFTER THAT YOU WANT MORE SURVIVABILITY AND MORE DISRUPTION, NOT FUCKIN' DAMAGE. LEAVE THE DPS TO THE PEOPLE RIDING YOUR COATTAILS TO FREE ELO. START: [item=regrowth-pendant][item=health-potion] ALWAYS, UNLESS THEY'RE HIGHLY SKILLSHOT DEPENDENT IN WHICH CASE YOU COULD PROBABLY GO BOOTS/3 BUT IT'S RARELY NECESSARY 1ST CORE: [item=philosophers-stone][item=heart-of-gold][item=boots-of-speed] ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS. MALPH PERFORMS ROCK FUCKIN SOLIDLY EVEN WITH ITEMS THAT GIVE HIM FREE GOLD. THE LESSER METALS PAY TRIBUTE TO THE REGAL ROCKS, NAMELY, HIS TESTICLES 2ND CORE: [item=philosophers-stone][item=heart-of-gold][item=mercurys-treads][item=frozen-heart] THERE ARE FOUR EXCEPTIONS TO RUSHING THIS ITEM SETUP. 1) THEY HAVE 1 OR FEWER AP CHAMPIONS AND VERY WEAK CC. IN THAT CASE, BUY [imgsmall=items/ninja-tabi.png] INSTEAD OF MERC TREADS. I LOVE THE SMELL OF OVERKILL IN THE MORNING. SOMETIMES IT'S OK TO GET TABI AND THEN SELL THEM FOR MERC LATER. USE YOUR OWN DISCRETION. 2) YOU ARE AGAINST AN AP AND FIND YOURSELF RUNNING OUT OF MANA FROM THE FREQUENCY OF TRADING WITH YOUR Q, IN WHICH CASE GET [imgsmall=items/chalice-of-harmony.png]. HONESTLY I PRACTICALLY NEVER GET THIS ITEM BUT IT HAS ITS USES SOMETIMES SINCE THERE ARE FEW CHEAP MR OPTIONS FOR MALPH. 3) YOU NEED SOME MORE BALANCED DEFENSE, YOUR TEAM IS SQUISHY, AND YOUR SUPPORT ISN'T GETTING IT. [imgsmall=items/aegis-of-the-legion.png] SOLVES YOUR SHIT THEN. 4) YOU'RE TAKING A SHITLOAD OF MAGIC DAMAGE BUT DIDN'T WANT ONE OF THE TWO EARLIER ITEMS, JUST GET A FUCKING [imgsmall=items/negatron-cloak.png] AND UPGRADE IT LATER FINAL: [item=shurelyas-reverie][item=randuins-omen][item=mercurys-treads][item=frozen-heart][item=oracles-elixir][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward] NO EXCEPTIONS. YOU ARE THE MANFIGHT. THIS GIVES YOU ULTIMATE MOBILITY, DEFENSE, CONTROL, DEFENSE, CDR CAP, DEFENSE, VISION AND MOST IMPORTANTLY A TON OF FUCKING DEFENSE. IN SOLO QUEUE, YOU SHOULD EXPECT YOUR TEAM TO WAFFLE AROUND ONCE YOU INITIATE, SO IT'S IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO SURVIVE IN THE THICK OF THINGS AND DRAW PEOPLES' FIRE. GET ORACLES AND MAKE THEM WANT TO KILL YOU. YOUR DEATHS ARE AN ASSET TO YOUR TEAM DUE TO THE SHEER EFFORT REQUIRED TO KILL YOU UNLESS YOU'RE GETTING CAUGHT OR SUICIDING YOU USELESS FUCK. DON'T CRY ABOUT YOUR SUPPORT NOT GETTING WARDS AND ORACLES. YOUR SUPPORT IS A LAZY PIECE OF SHIT. YOU ARE A FUCKING MAN AND YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR CARRYING THE WORTHLESS SCUM TO ELO HEAVEN. YOU CATCH THEM OFF GUARD, SPLIT, OUT OF POSITION, RETREATING, ETC WITH A GOOD ULT AND YOU WIN THE FUCKING GAME. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. AWESOME: [item=force-of-nature] LUXURY: [item=abyssal-scepter][item=frozen-mallet][item=morellos-evil-tome][item=rylais-crystal-scepter][item=sunfire-cape][item=starks-fervor][item=warmogs-armor][item=trinity-force][item=thornmail] USE YOUR FUCKING IMAGINATION. YOU SHOULD BE SPENDING ENOUGH ON ORACLES AND WARDS THAT THIS SHIT NEVER EVER FINDS ITS WAY INTO YOUR INVENTORY. HONESTLY FON SHOULD BE THE ONLY ONE. MORELLOS IF THEY HAVE 4 MUNDOS OR SOMETHING. COCKSLAP SIMULATOR: [item=tiamat][item=tiamat][item=tiamat][item=tiamat][item=tiamat][item=tiamat]

I WOULD LIKE TO CLARIFY THAT THIS ENTIRE GUIDE WAS WRITTEN WITH THE SHIFT KEY HELD DOWN. I DISABLED CAPS LOCK ON MY COMPUTER OVER A YEAR AGO BECAUSE CAPS LOCK IS FOR FUCKING QUITTERS AND ALSO IT'S MY VENT PUSH TO TALK KEY SO IT GOT ANNOYING WHEN I WOULD USE VENT AND INGAME CHAT AT THE SAME TIME. I WOULD APOLOGIZE FOR THE BLATANT SEXISM IN THIS GUIDE BUT FRANKLY IF YOU'RE THE KIND OF OVERSENSITIVE DINGLEBERRY WHO GETS OFFENDED BY HYPERBOLIC INTERNET HUMOR, GO FUCK YOURSELF WITH AN OBSIDIAN DICK. THE WORLD WOULD BE BETTER OFF WITH FEWER PEOPLE LIKE YOU. IF THERE IS LEGITIMATE INTEREST IN SEEING THIS GUIDE EXPANDED TO COVER SPECIFIC MATCHUPS, TEAMFIGHT/POSITIONING TECHNIQUES, AND GENERAL MUSINGS ON THE PHILOSOPHY OF ROCK SOLID PLAY, I'D BE GLAD TO MAKE IT MORE COMPREHENSIVE. JUST SAY SO. [highlight]GOOD LUCK GODSPEED AND GO TEAM VENTURE[/highlight]
