Tips

Playing As Dr. MundoSquare Dr. Mundo
  • A well-timed Sadism Sadism can bait enemy champions into attacking you even when they lack the damage to finish you.
  • Spirit Visage item Spirit Visage will increase the healing done by your Sadism ultimate and lower cooldowns on all of your abilities.
  • Infected Cleaver Cleavers are a powerful tool for killing neutral monsters. Instead of returning to base, farm neutral monsters until your Sadism ultimate can heal you.

Item Usage
  • Because of his toolkit, Dr. MundoSquare Dr. Mundo doesn't really need to rely on offensive items as much as almost any other character in the game. He has only one ability that scales with damage items, being Burning Agony Burning Agony and the scaling on it is poor. Building Defensive items instead is a strong choice on him.
  • Unless the enemy team is full AD, Spirit Visage item Spirit Visage is a mandatory item for Dr. Mundo. This item increases his sustain significantly. It allows him to heal a lot more from his ultimate and his passive. In addition, it makes nearly impossible to kill Mundo with an AP champion, as very few of them have the tools needed to break through Mundo's massive sustain and tankiness.
  • The Mercury's Treads item Mercury's Treads and Ninja Tabi item Ninja Tabi are standard choices of shoes for Mundo, but he can also make good use of Boots of Swiftness item Boots of Swiftness to improve his chasing potential.
  • Sunfire Cape item Sunfire Cape is one of the best armor items for Mundo, as it synergizes well with Burning Agony Burning Agony, and gives him more damage as Mundo will generally not be building dedicated damage items.
  • The Dead Man's Plate item Dead Man's Plate is a strong choice on Dr. MundoSquare Mundo, due to the granted extra mobility that synergises with both Masochism Masochism and Sadism Sadism. This allows him to become a very strong chaser. The extra crowd control is also fairly useful.
  • The Zz'Rot Portal item Zz'Rot Portal is a less used but also viable choice on Dr. Mundo. It can be used to split push and is very strong with a teammate also building this item. It is often used with Executioner Mundo Legacy skin.


Countering
  • Mundo's biggest strength ingame is his immense sustain granted from his Adrenaline Rush Adrenaline Rush and after level 6, his ultimate Sadism Sadism. If correctly played until late game, Mundo can easily become a character that is very hard to kill. Picking character's who can counter his sustain and/or tankiness such as KatarinaSquare Katarina or TrundleSquare Trundle are good choices.
    • VayneSquare Vayne can be considered a good counter against Mundo. All of his tankiness means nothing against her Silver Bolts Silver Bolts. Her sustained damage is too much for Mundo to endure, and because she is an ADC, she can even Blade of the Ruined King item build sustain The Bloodthirster item herself, and can build Mortal Reminder item an item that can heavily cripple Mundo's sustain. Her mobility also makes it difficult for Mundo to efficiently land Infected Cleaver Infected Cleavers on her and will often force Mundo to activate Sadism Sadism in order to try to escape her. His lack of hard CC gives him another disadvantage in terms of attempting to stop her during teamfights.
  • Dodge his Infected Cleaver Infected Cleaver whenever you can in lane, as it can easily melt your health if not watched as well as giving him an opening to attack you.
  • Grievous Wounds cripple Dr. Mundo heavily as he is heavily reliant on healing himself to function in the game. Mortal Reminder item Mortal Reminder and Morellonomicon item Morellonomicon are well recommended items to purchase when there is a Mundo on the enemy team. Ignite Ignite is highly recommended if you play as a champion with poor sustain against Mundo.
