Best Urgot Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in League of Legends
Urgot is one of the trademarks of League of Legends due to his age, but only the old LoL players remember what old Urgot used to look like. The new Urgot is far more menacing, and these are the best Urgot build, runes, spells, items League of Legends can offer him, as well as his greatest counters.
Best Urgot Build
Urgot is a champion of the fighter role, with ranged auto attacks, which should be an oxymoron, but isn't in his case. So, his build is the best of both worlds.
Best Urgot Runes
As a ranged top lane champion, Urgot makes use of his ranged advantage to be a lane bully. To do that effectively in the early game, proper runes are needed. In his case, the Precision Runes offer the best stats. Press the Attack easily allows him to harass the enemy, and prepare for an all-in.
|Best Rune Path||Precision||Resolve|
|Best Keystone||Press the Attack|
|Best Slot 1 (Rune)||Triumph||Bone Plating|
|Best Slot 2 (Rune)||Legend: Tenacity||Overgrowth|
|Best Slot 3 (Rune)||Last Stand|
On the other hand, the resolve rune set is there to make Urgot capable of entering the melee range of enemy top laners, and still being able to defeat them. Bone Plating is critical in that case for the early game to tank incoming damage, while Overgrowth is meant to give him bonus health, as maximum health is needed for late-game scaling as a frontline champion.
Best Urgot Rune Shards
When it comes to Rune Shards that Urgot players use, the best one leans into his lane bully persona, with the maximum damage possible.
|Best Rune Shards||Effect|
|Offense||+9 Adaptive Force|
|Flex||+9 Adaptive Force|
Adaptive force damage gives Urgot top additional damage on his auto attacks and abilities, while the Armor lets him survive easier into top laners, who mainly deal physical damage. Should you be up against champions such as Mordekaiser, who deal magic damage, then switch to Magic Resistance.
Best Urgot Spells
When it comes to Summoner Spells, there are only a few champions who are managing League of Legends trials, without using Flash. Those are Shaco or Tryndamere. Flash is a must-have when playing Urgot, as Flash is, without a doubt, the best Summoner Spell in the game, overall.
Urgot top, on the other hand, due to the lane being so long, can easily run down his enemies and does not need Ignite to finish them off. Instead, Teleport is more useful, for wave management, as well as joining team fights on the other side of the map.
Best Urgot Abilities Order
The first ability to level on Urgot, out of his skill order, is his E - Disdain. It's the second ability to be maxed, however, after his W. Instead, it's used for a level 1 cheese strategy, and, if you're confident, a level 1 skirmish.
After that, the next ability in his skill order is his W - Purge. It's the first ability to be maxed on Urgot, as it's his main way of dealing damage to enemy champions. With the engage from E and the shield it gives, Urgot can fight anyone if he kites them well.
Finally, besides Urgot's ultimate, we have his Q -Corrosive Charge. It's the last ability to be leveled and maxed. Its main usage is as a poking tool in lane, and to mark and slow nearby enemies, for his engage.
And, as always, Urgot's ultimate is why every squishy champion fears Urgot. It's an execute ability, and a unique ability in League of Legends. After marking an enemy champion with it, he can then pull them towards himself when they are under a health threshold and kill them.
Due to how strong his basic attacks get, he can do so easily to any backline carry, without spending precious cooldowns of his other abilities.
Best Urgot Items
As we've said previously, Urgot's build makes use of the best of both worlds. His attack range, as well as his frontline presence.
Best Starter Urgot Items
While frontline tanks and fighters may tend to go for Doran's shield, Urgot's starter item is always Doraan's Blade without a doubt, as well as the Health potions to round off the gold.
|First Item||Second Item|
|Doran's Blade||Health Potion|
Best Mid Game Urgot Items
In the mid-game, your core build should be ready, and, unlike other champions, it does not include Mythic Items. Instead, it consists of a Titanic Hydra, Plated Steelcaps, and Black Cleaver.
|First Item||Second Item||Third Item|
|Titanic Hydra||Plated Steelcaps||Black Cleaver|
Titanic hydra gives Urgot monstrous Attack Damage which scales with maximum health, as well as additional On-hit effects, while Black Cleaver,a side from hybrid stats gives armor reduction on attacks.
Best Final Late Game Urgot Items
Only after the core build is ready, does Urgot buy his Mythic Item as a fourth item. Frostfire Gauntlet's most important two abilities it gives Urgot are the ability haste and additional crowd control.
|First Item||Second Item||Third Item||Fourth Item||Fifth Item||Sixth Item|
|Titanic Hydra||Plated Steelcaps||Black Cleaver||Frostfire Gauntlet||Thornmail||Sterak's Gage|
Thornmail used to be a situational item, but with the rampant healing in the current meta, has become a must, while Sterak's Gage will give Urgot additional survivability.
Strongest Champions Against Urgot
Urgot suffers in lane from champions that can escape his bully tactics, or take them head on.
