League of Legends: Wild Rift Amumu Gameplay Tips

Since Amamu is a Tank with magic damage, the best lane for him is Baron Lane. Or else you can play in the jungle to farm more efficiently. The Wild Rift’s map is a mirror so understand the map side before laning. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift Amumu guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game.

Early Game

Buy a lower grade boot at first and place a ward in the enemy jungle(near buff). If no enemy is around start jungle. You can use your smite right away to take a blue buff, so it will cool down again for another charge. After killing the frog do a quick rotation in the top lane and try to do a successful gank.If a red buff is available take it too.

Just try to focus on leveling up and unlock your ultimate. Then return to the base if needed and buy items(build Mask or Cape according to the situation). Do not conserve your smite.

Mid Game

This is the main stage for him to join team-fights. Once your 2 basic core items are ready, you are good to go. Use your skill 1 wisely cause this is the only long-ranged skill for Amumu. Skill 1 will work like reverse Blitzcrank’s pull, so whenever you see dot life enemy are running away; just on your skill 2, use flash to shorten the distance and then use skill 1 to finish him. Combos are like

Skill 2+Flash+Skill 1+Skill 3

Try not to use your ultimate on a single enemy. Do not afraid to die, only if your death saves your Carry. Remember to not steal your allies kill intentionally.

Late Game

Since you are a Tank with jungling abilities, so try to take at least 2 elemental Drake with your allies. Sunfire cape will help you to drain the Jungle monster’s life easily. Or else you can do a surprise attack on the enemy when they are taking drake. Therefore, never leave your main damage dealer at this moment. At the late game, Amumu shines the most. Toggling your skill 2 and placing the ward is very important before ganking.

Always focus on your objective, whenever you get the chance to push turrets with the ally. Destroying turret will boost your economy to build items faster. Slain Baron if 3/4 enemy champions are dead. When you are low on health do not worry, just hide in a bush for a few moments; Warmog’s Armor will re-generate your HP. Amumu’s ultimate have a long stun duration so try to cast it when all enemies are gathered in one place, like-

Skill 2+Skill 1+Skill 4+ Skill 3

In this way, you can spam Skill 3 often which will slow enemies’ movement speed.

Additionally, Amumu forms strong pairs and serves as Best Combos with both Annie and Miss Fortune.

Final Thoughts

No doubt Amumu is a good team-fight champion, initiator and can deal with high damage but in some cases, your carry needs jungle to level up quickly. In this particular case, you can not farm frequently. It will slightly decrease your gold earning economy. He needs a blue buff at the start which thus makes him very predictable as a jungler and gets bullied by enemy meta heroes.

He can not even solo a single lane. Somebody says he is the worst jungler but that’s not the point. If you understand Amumu’s build and lane control technique you can easily dominate the battleground. Communicating with your friends during battle will higher your win percentage.
