Best Rammus Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in League of Legends




Rammus might be the tankiest champion to exist in League of Legends. And because of this, he is also one of the most irritating champions in the game. To make matters worse, he is also very easy to play. If you are looking to main League's armadillo, here is a complete Rammus guide that tackles his build, runes, spells, and items in League of Legends

Best Rammus Build

Rammus might have a subpar early game, but he is really strong when he completes his tank items. Enemies will have a hard time dealing with you if you play your cards correctly. To do this every game, follow this comprehensive guide that will teach you everything about Rammus jungle!

Best Rammus Runes

Starting off, the best primary rune for Rammus is always aftershock, no matter your lane. Rammus can chase down enemies because of the bonus movement speed from his kit and deals a ton of crowd control once he sticks to an enemy champion. The other runes are for improving his tankiness in the long run. Just follow the runes below every single game to get the most out of his kit and win all the skirmishes!

Best Rammus Rune Shards

Since Rammus is a tank champion, the best rune shards are the defensive ones. Get a single attack speed rune shard to help with your jungle camp clearing but get armor or magic resist rune for the next two rune set shards. Just focus on building tanky items to make sure that you get to use this rune set!

Best Rammus Summoner Spells

As expected, Rammus jungle should always have a smite. It helps you clear camps, kill epic monsters, and gives you the ability to purchase a jungle-role item. The secondary summoner spell that you should have is either ghost or flash. You can choose either one of the two, but most pro players still use flash because of its flexibility.

Best Rammus Ability Order

Rammus does not have a complex skill order. You just have to focus on leveling up his powerball ability every single game. This should be your number one priority because powerball makes Rammus really fast, allowing him to rotate and gank easily. Next, level up his frenzying taunt, then defensive ball curl last.

Remember the skill order above and use it every game. Thankfully, this leveling style is strong and will work on every single match. Also, do not forget to level up his ultimate when you get the chance since that is the strongest ability at your disposal.

Best Rammus Items

Managing League of Legends items is challenging. As mentioned previously, a lot of times, Rammus will greatly benefit from tank items. There are times when an enemy deals magic damage, and sometimes they will deal a ton of attack damage. But knowing the correct items and build path will ensure that you are always one step ahead of your enemies. Follow all the builds below, including the early, mid, and late game, to win all your games as a Rammus jungle!

Best Early Game Rammus Items

Arguably, Rammus is not as strong as the other jungling champions during the early game. Also, he has a pretty weak clearing speed, but getting a jungle item will alleviate that for a little bit. Then, make sure to get a refillable health potion (for sustain) and oracle lens (for ganking).

Best Mid Game Rammus Items

At this point, you should have completed your mythic item. The best mythic item for Rammus jungle is Turbo Chemtank, because of its bonus movement speed and crowd control. This is a great item to engage team fights and catch enemies with your soaring slam. "Attack" Rammus is a great plan because of his durability. Make sure to abuse it with the correct items.

Also, start building your next legendary items during this phase. Build a bonus magic damage focused defensive item if your enemies are AP champions, and armor for AD champions.

Best Late Game Rammus Items

Now, this is the point where everyone has almost completed their inventory. You should have completed your items that give the maximum bonus armor or magic resistance possible. Do your best to be the tankiest in the lobby as much as possible. The enemy team will be left with no choice but to attack you if you are being smart with your positioning, so stack the most defensive items possible. Just follow the complete build below to win all the team fights in the game.
