Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia


Skill usage

  •  Powerball can interrupt jump moves such as  Jax's  Leap Strike or  Tristana's  Rocket Jump mid-jump.
  •  Defensive Ball Curl increases  Rammus's armor, which increases his damage due to  Spiked Shell by 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30.
  •  Powerball can be used as an effective escape mechanism. It also has a slight knock-back effect, and this allows for you to run into pursuers to momentarily disable them.
  • As  Powerball speeds up continuously after the initial cast, it's sometimes better to let it speed up in a brush before rolling at someone.
  • Flash can be used while in  Powerball to jump across a minion wave to catch your opponent off-guard.
  •  Powerball can hit stealthed champions such as  Twitch,  Shaco,  Akali, or  Evelynn, dealing damage and knocking them back. It will also work against a  Camouflaged  Teemo, knocking him out of stealth. This can be useful for chasing them if they go stealthed at low health.
  • You can use  Powerball then use Teleport to be at a high speed when reaching your destination. This is also amazing in conjunction with Homeguard.
  •  Powerball will damage and slow enemies reviving from pseudo death ( Guardian Angel or  Zilean's  Chrono Shift) or Zhonya's Hourglass, granting an easy kill.
  •  Puncturing Taunt can be used on enemies pushing your turret to make them attack you and causing the turret to attack them. It can also be used to take the focus off more squishy allies, allowing them to deal more damage than they would have had they been the focused target.
  •  Puncturing Taunt can also be used to "pull" enemies towards your team as an enemy will be forced to get into attack range to hit you. This is more effective with melee champions whose attack range is shorter than ranged ones.
  • When using  Tremors, you can use all your spells to keep enemies in range of this spell in order to maximize damage. This is possible because the ultimate is not channelled.
  •  Tremors affects turrets, making  Rammus a very good pusher, especially late game when he can tank the turret for his team.
    • Backdooring is a simple matter because you can easily use  Powerball to run away before enemies catch up.
  •  Rammus can use  Tremors while using  Powerball, making it very useful for destroying towers or champions that are low on health and escaping.

Build usage

Building armor is necessary to put  Spiked Shell to good use. Having a lot of armor will still result in a large amount of damage. However, do not disregard building magic resistance, as your high armor stat means nothing to the enemy team's AP mages. It can however be argued that building health will synergize better with the free armor and magic resistance provided by  Defensive Ball Curl.

Jungling

 Rammus is a strong jungler, with exceptional ganks.  Powerball allows him to initiate ganks suddenly, and  Puncturing Taunt is a strong CC ability with a fairly long duration.
