Best Amumu Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in LoL

Amumu jungle is one of the best champions to play in the jungle if you're a League of legends or Wild rift beginner and want to learn how to play without complicating yourself. So, in this guide, we will show you the best Amumu build, runes, spells and much more to master this champion. You may also play Amumu support but this guide is focused on Amumu jungle, however, Amumu build doesn't change too much.

Best Amumu Build

Amumu jungle is an amazing champion who can deal magic damage and hit multiple enemies thanks to his amazing Ultimate ability and his curse of the sad mummy ability. However, if you may be thinking that Amumu build is completely focused on magic damage, then you're wrong, Amumu is an incredible tanky champion and he's focused on getting health, resistance, and armor when buying item build.


The best thing about Amumu, is that he is a great champion for beginners and it's able to deal magic damage to all nearby enemies and apply a huge amount of crowd control during a team fight. Amumu is a tank jungler that can lead his allies to an easy victory, but be careful, Amumu's early game is probably one of the worst in the game.

Best Amumu Runes

Although Amumu build is focused on tanky defensive items, Amumu runes are more focused on earning a lot of health in the late game. So you will need your precision runes as the keystone rune and domination runes with ultimate hunter in order to deal more damage all the whole game. But be careful, Amumu is not the best jungler in the early game of League of Legends, so you will have to escalate, buy items and be patient to kill the epic monsters fast and eliminate your enemies easily.
