This guide will show you the basics of how to play malphite from my point of view. Malphite is a rock that destroys ad champions and squishy heroes with no mr. He can single handedly carry a team fight with a 5 man ult. Rocks fall people die, the end. Malphite is one of the most annoying champions to play against in the game, but at the same time he has a very weak early laning phase. Malphite shines in the mid/late game when he starts to get his mana item or sunfire cape. Because he will be extremely hard to kill and just kills everyone else because he's just malphite. Even if you fail as malphite you still have an initation and CC and god late game so if you die 50 times but get 6 items you will be worth 2 people against ad with your 500 armor late game.

[imgext=] you can trade out quints for hp or hp regen or more mpen

[title][img=skills/malphite/w.png] W: Brutal Strikes[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] if you level this at lvl 4 you'll be able to last hit ranged creeps, which is why mana is so important early on for the cs and laning. [title][img=skills/malphite/e.png] E: Ground Slam[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] aoe wave clear, destroys attack speed, scales with armor and ap. [title][img=skills/malphite/r.png] R: Unstoppable Force[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] the ability that makes malphite the most ridiculous. ranged aoe knock up that does fair damage. does extremely well with wombo combo.

Starting Items: [item=health-potion5][item=rejuvenation-bead][item=mana-potion][item=sight-ward] you almost never do this, but if you do it means you're building into philostone or warmogs. [item=cloth-armor][item=health-potion5] anti ad, trade out a hp pot for mana pot for laning player preference. [item=faerie-charm][item=health-potion5][item=mana-potion] standard malphite start other then flask 3 hp pot. [item=dorans-shield] great for 1v2 [item=dorans-ring] great for 1v1 vs ap casters or if you're going to abuse tp early just like dorans shield except with damage and some mana. Boot Options: [item=mercurys-treads] anti ap cc [item=sorcerers-shoes] mpen damage for malphite sunfire cape etc. [item=ninja-tabi] anti ad scales with e and w Core Items: [item=sunfire-cape] core item that allows you to wave clear fast and anti ad brusiers or ad casters [item=chalice-of-harmony] anti ap, mana source -> potentially late game athenes grail or frozen heart [item=glacial-shroud] anti ad mana source -> frozen heart Item Goals: [item=randuins-omen] anti ad best armor item [item=frozen-fist] carry malphite with cdr and ap/slow [item=liandrys-torment]ap malphite anti hp. [item=spirit-visage] only when there are no other anti ap options. [item=thornmail] god tier anti ad item [item=warmogs-armor] scales well with your passive, and vs ap when you have to much armor. [item=zhonyas-hourglass] meant for ap malphite, you ult in E and then stasis. [item=guardian-angel] high end efficiency item when you get focused down which is never. good resists. [item=frozen-heart] core malphite item cdr, mana, armor. [item=runic-bulwark] only build this if the enemy has 5 ap's.

ult 5 people with your team nearby and you'll most likely instantly win the team fight. peel for your ad carry until the enemy squishies come into range then ult. spam all your abilities, especially E on any auto attackers. make sure you press W before E or W when you get hit by an auto attack.

Malphite is a rock. Malphite runs really fast. Malphite is impossible to kill when he has 500 armor. Malphite will solve all of your fed ad problems. Malphite runs so fast that he'll knock up people for 20% of their hp half the time. video coming soon tm
