Tips

Playing As Amumu Amumu
  • Amumu is highly dependent on teammates, so try laning with your friends for maximum effectiveness.
  • Cooldown Reduction on Amumu is very strong, but it's often difficult to itemize for it. Grab the Crest of Insight.png Crest of Insight whenever possible to gain Cooldown Reduction without sacrificing stats.
  • Despair.png Despair is very effective against other tanks, so make sure you're in range of opponents with the highest Health.
Playing Against Amumu Amumu
  • Avoid bunching up with other allies when Amumu has his Curse of the Sad Mummy.png ultimate available.
  • Erratic movement, or hiding behind creep waves can make it difficult for Amumu to instigate a fight with Bandage Toss.png Bandage Toss.
  • Amumu's Despair.png Despair makes purchasing primarily Health items a risky proposition.

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • Cursed Touch.png Cursed Touch debuffs enemies from their magic resistance, giving more damage potential for his skills.
  • Bandage Toss.png Bandage Toss is Amumu's main initiative skill, with excellent aim he can latch to enemies for ganking or pass through walls whilst attaching to a champion or neutral monster.
    • During the time where an enemy champion is Stun icon stuns from Bandage Toss.png Bandage Toss, Amumu can basic attack first then use his skills.
  • Despair.png Despair can be used to clear minion waves or jungle camps.
    • Despair.png Despair has a stable mana cost and cooldown no matter the skill levels. The more mana capacity he has, the better.
  • Tantrum.png Tantrum might be a point blank hit but it can hit multiple targets beside Amumu.
    • A good tactic is to Bandage Toss.png Bandage Toss first to target, use basic attack to debuff then Tantrum.png Tantrum, Despair.png Despair can be used idly anywhere on the situation.
  • Curse of the Sad Mummy.png Curse of the Sad Mummy is the best peeling tool either when ganking or escaping a situation and teamfights, so use good positioning when engaging a full squad.
    • Using the previously mentioned tactic, after the whole ensemble, Curse of the Sad Mummy.png Curse of the Sad Mummy can be added as a finisher or somewhere among the process to freeze targets with ease.
Mastery Usage
  • Amumu is a tank-ish loner who works proficiently in the jungle, attempting to find friends only to farm for levels and gank those who are in need of company. Therefore, he requires more resilience in battle with different choices through the three mastery trees.
  • Consider more ability power with Sorcery mastery s4.png Sorcery and Arcane Mastery mastery s4.png Natural Talent.
  • Increase defenses, especially for jungling with Unyielding mastery s4.png Unyielding and Block mastery s4.png tough Skin.
  • Amumu always needs a helping hand when ganking, therefore Expose Weakness mastery 2016.png Expose Weakness creates teamwork.
  • Evasive mastery s4.png Oppressor works with both the stun from Bandage Toss.png Bandage Toss and Cursed Touch.png Cursed Touch basic attack.
  • Thunderlord&#039;s Decree mastery 2016.png Thunderlord's Decree combined with Cursed Touch.png Cursed Touch provides a good deal of additional damage for early game. Come late game, and with good use of both his full ability rotation and Cursed Touch.png Cursed Touch, this mastery makes Amumu Amumu a terrifying initiator capable of 100-0'ing most squishies, especially if he chooses to build AP and/or magic penetration.
  • Strength of the Ages mastery 2016.png Strength of the Ages is commonly seen on competitive jungle play. The additional health provided by the mastery allows a lot of flexibility in both items built and risks taken. It also solves Amumu Amumu's weakness to poke/siege by late game as he can sustain himself by being close to a large minion/jungle monster as it dies.
Item Usage
Countering
  • Amumu can play well solo against all odds with high defenses, ability power and mana to consume.
  • Ensure there is plenty of coverage near brushes or behind walls with wards or other vision techniques to avoid potential ganks.
  • Bandage Toss.png Bandage Toss can cause major trouble so be on the move to avoid it.
  • Avoid standing too close to Amumu whilst Despair.png Despair is active as it cuts health by the second. Peel him off or excel his speed to escape.
  • In teamfights, Amumu will always aim the squishiest with Bandage Toss.png Bandage Toss followed by Curse of the Sad Mummy.png Curse of the Sad Mummy and all other skills which can cause major damage to all victims.
  • Try and build Mercury&#039;s Treads item.png Tenacity and magic resistance when facing him to ensure lesser stun and ability damage.
  • In the jungle, Amumu can engage half attacked neutral monsters to finish them off so pull them away from the camp.
