Summoner Spells Back to Top

AB Summoner spells.png

12.pngis the standard summoner for top laners, 31.png is no exception. This summoner spell allows him to make cross map plays or to teleport back to lane to grab cs that you would likely miss.

4.png is the best summoner spell in the game and almost no champion goes without it. It provides gap close or to escape from bad situations.

New Runes Back to Top

AB New Runes.png

Standard

Grasp%20of%20the%20Undying.png?width=64 – is the go-to keystone on 31.png. This keystone allows you to do well in trades during laning phase and even giving permanent hp every time you proc it.

Bone%20Plating.png?width=64 – Standard rune that helps to reduce the damage you take in trades. Not much competition in this row while this rune is quite good.

Second%20Wind.png?width=64 - Because this rune works with % health, it works well even outside of laning when you are stacking hp from items/rune/feast.png.

Overgrowth.png?width=64 – gives permanent % hp which synergize with 31.png all too well.

Precision – is taken second to give you some attack speed which is nice for 31.pngto get off his vorpalspikes.png.

Triumph.png?width=64 – this rune can work wonders in team fights when you are low on hp. It restores missing hp and 31.png will have a lot of hp.

Overheal.png?width=64 – This rune is viable too if you want to get that edge in laning phase with the small shield u can generate from time to time because of your passive.

Legend%20Tenacity.png?width=64 – Tenacity on a tank is always nice. Since this rune got buffed it has become quite attractive.

Legend%20Alacrity.png?width=64 – This can be taken if they have close to 0 cc on the enemy team.

AB Abilities.png
Passive - Carnivore chogathpassive.png

Very useful passive to give sustain in lane. It's his biggest strength in laning.


7723a7fe4571fe317bc85befa7e96760.png


Q - Rupture rupture.png
Very long range ability but it can be difficult to hit on it's own. Very good when doing chain ccing and it has a slow after the knockup.


2d35f937ace9963c44412434e00e9982.png


W - Feral Scream feralscream.png
Aoe Silence to help deny targets from using abilities in combos.


df42b2bdae3939e4d9426dc9117a29ee.png


E - Vorpal Spikes vorpalspikes.png
Auto attack resetter that makes 31.png good at trading. Also good for pushing.


fcf7010747b1c37f02034a19116ba20c.png


R - Feast feast.png
Execute ability that deals true damage and scales with maximum hp. Great ability that can be used to secure kills and neutral objectives.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    This is your basic starting set.

Core Items

    This helps with your early sustain in lane to make it through laning phase.
    These two items are your core items early on. They give you everything you need like movement speed sustain and cdr.
    Ninja Tabi if your against ad teams or mercury's Treads if they have many cc abilities.

Situational Items

    If the enemy team has 0 magic damage dealing champions then you might just wanna go for this instead of abyssal mask.
    If the enemy team has heavy crit damage dealing champions then this item will reduce their damage done to you by quite a bit.
    This is your go-to item if you need more magic resist.

AB Items.png

Build reasons –

 Remember to be adaptive with your build. Some games you may need to just rush 3001.png because your against a magic damage dealing laner. Sometimes you may not even be able to finish your 3010.png because they have no magic damage to be upgrading into 3001.png3800.png is nice with the huge movement speed it gives so you can catch up to targets. Overall you are stacking up your hp so that your feast.png deals more damage from your build. Add 3083.png and 3193.png to maximize this.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

His early cc can be annoying so play back early on. He has long cooldowns early so make your move with the small windows to throw in a small trade. Remember to stay out of his aatroxq.png sweet spots and dodge his aatroxw.png

VS

Akali

Easy

She beats most laners by using her akalismokebomb.png to negate trades and her akalipassive.png to heal up after trades. 31.png has sustain so this matchup won’t be hard. You also become tanky enough till she cannot just kill you and you can bully her.

VS

Camille

Medium

Camille on her own may not be the biggest threat so if you play safe and try to sustain and scale up you can do well. If she tries to use camillee.png into a trade on you, time your rupture.png so she is knocked up when she reaches you and you can start to trade back. This gets a bit more difficult once she has camiller.png so be wary. Just keep your hp up and you will be fine.

VS

Darius

Medium
I put this matchup as medium because of how easy 122.png can bully you in lane. The worst part is his bulling usually ends up in death. This matchup can go really hard in your favour if you get an early lead. He is immobile so ask for help from your jungler to deal with him. Then take over the lane from there. Just dodge his outer dariuscleave.png and he has nothing.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Hard

You can basically never kill this guy without some help early. He becomes tanky and has sadism.png  which regains hp, keeping him out of execute range.

VS

Fiora

Hard
All of your abilities are telegraphed which makes it easy for her to fioraw.png your key abilities when necessary. She also deals true damage that is %hp based so this hurts you even more.

VS

Gangplank

Easy
This guy loves to bully people in lane. But, 31.png has built in sustain from his chogathpassive.pngso he can’t push you of lane easily. Later on, you may be able to even kill 41.png in lane if you land your rupture.png on him and just chase him down.

VS

Garen

Medium
86.png has regen through his garenpassive.png so he can somewhat keep up with your sustain. Early on you can out trade him if you can auto then vorpalspikes.png in 1 instance as his garenq.png is about to hit. After level 6 watch out for his garenr.png, keep your hp up before you go in for trades.

VS

Gnar

Medium
150.png can be a problem because he poke hard and if you aren’t careful he can kill you in lane. But, really this doesn’t happen much anymore and you should do fine against him.

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

This guy is good at bullying people out of lane and building a lead. But, 31.png has sustain to keep up with his poke and if you jungler comes to help you can lock him down for a kill with your rupture.png and feralscream.png.

VS

Illaoi

Hard

She is good at tearing up tanks in lane. Try to dodge her illaoie.png always and don’t go in for trades unless this is down. One good thing about this matchup though is you can lock her up in a gank to secure a kill with your feast.png.

VS

Irelia

Easy
She has low base stats so you can sustain up her trades and slowly work her down. Once your level 6 your feast.png is true damage so if she tries to save her ireliaw.png when she is low then it will work out in your favour. Just avoid her ireliae.png and don’t fight with her ireliapassive.png on 4 stacks.

VS

Jax

Medium
I put this at medium because if he gets a lead he can trade to zone you off minions if he gets a lead. Otherwise you can poke him down and zone him out. Don't waste your vorpalspikes.png when he has jaxcounterstrike.png up. Wait it out first or auto then vorpalspikes.png and hold on to the rest till he uses jaxcounterstrike.png till it ends.

VS

Jayce

Medium
While he is a range champion with poke and you have sustain, he has heavy burst. So, therefore he can kill you if your not too careful. Play safe and farm up till you can slowly get some trades with him post 6 and maybe go for a feast.png kill if he doesn’t respect your damage.

VS

Kayle

Medium
This matchup is weird because she isn’t very hard to kill but her judicatorintervention.png can counter feast.png. What you have to do is bait out her judicatorintervention.png or even feast.png early to leave her with very low hp then last hit once it runs out. Before that just sustain out her damage.

VS

Kennen

Medium
This matchup is medium because 85.png can go either ap or ad on-hit. Against ap you win easily but against on-hit it gets hard. Adapt your build based off whichever one he is.

VS

Kled

Hard

240.png has good all in potential early which is your weakest point. He can easily dodge your rupture.png with his klede.png, TWICE. Play safe and when you think you are safe, just remember you aren’t, so play even more back.

VS

Malphite

Easy
Against other tanks 31.png generally wins. He has sustain that most of them don’t and good trade potential with a true damage execute. 

VS

Maokai

Easy

He may have sustain but he can’t recover his mana like you can so take advantage of that. He is quite easy to kill because you out trade him so keep at him with that.

VS

Nasus

Easy
He wants to farm and stack but 31.png is one of the tanks that can bully him to deny this. With yourferalscream.png you can combine this with ult to really mess up his sense of hp because he may want to nasusr.png but cannot.

VS

Olaf

Hard
This guy has good all in potential so its rough against him. Even worst knowing that his olafragnarok.png makes him immune to all the cc you have so he can just run you down.

VS

Ornn

Medium
This matchup is quite even. You are both pretty good in laning. But, you can easily interrupt his ornnr.png recast with your rupture.png or feralscream.png.

VS

Pantheon

Easy
You can sustain out his poke which is his greatest strength. Just pay attention to his pantheonpassive.png when you are going for trades if you are in a situation to go for any. Warn your team when he is missing because he can just pantheonrjump.png to another lane.

VS

Poppy

Medium

78.png can trade so she becomes quite a bit difficult to lane against but her poppyw.png doesn’t affect you so that’s good. Stay away from walls so she can pin you to one with her poppye.png. You can also interrupt her poppyr.png with your feralscream.png or rupture.png.

VS

Quinn

Medium
She is range so expect poke. When going for trades land your rupture.png first then walk up to her and try to get behind her and slow her with vorpalspikes.png. This will make it so when she tries to quinne.png she will go away from her turret side. Do this if you have the edge and not if you are seriously weaker. Watch out for her roam potential because of quinnr.png, warn your teammates.

VS

Renekton

Medium

This guy can bully hard but if you can just avoid not trading him endlessly this matchup becomes easier. Watch out for when his bar is above 50%, his abilities become empowered.

VS

Rengar

Medium
107.png can bully you with his passive so stay away from brushes. Play extra safe early until you have some armour items then you can actually just win trades.

VS

Riven

Easy
Your feralscream.png makes riven combos messy so once you do that and just auto then reset with vorpalspikes.png, she comes quite simple.

VS

Rumble

Easy
I put this at easy becomes he pokes a lot but you have sustain and because you are going 3010.png first. It’s way easier to rush magic resist this way to counter 68.png.

VS

Shen

Easy
All you gotta do is wait out his shenw.png before you waste your vorpalspikes.png stacks on it. Then proceed to out sustain him. You can also easily interrupt his shenr.png.

VS

Singed

Hard
This guy avoids fighting you and just runs around clearing minions while damaging you. Try not to trade with him and farm and scale up and maybe look for 12.png plays.

VS

Sion

Medium
This matchup is skill based. Try to avoid his sionq.png and sione.pngand then go in for trades. You can interrupt his sionq.png with your feralscream.png easily.

VS

Tahm Kench

Hard
No one beats this guy in lane.

VS

Talon

Hard
He can bully and roam. Which is 31.pngs weaknesses all round.

VS

Teemo

Easy

You can out sustain this little rat and even kill him post 6. Just don’t waste your vorpalspikes.png when he blindingdart.png you.

VS

Trundle

Medium

His trundlecircle.png can be very annoying because you don’t have any dashes. He can also steal your stats with his trundlepain.png which makes him hard to deal with.

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

Really annoying guy when it gets to late game. Early though you can bully him and take over the lane from there. Just don’t fight when he has his passive up.

VS

Urgot

Hard
His urgotr.png is really annoying for tanks in general. He has good poke and can take you down level 6. Play safe and try to scale.

VS

Vladimir

Easy

He can poke and sustain but so can you. Scale up and feralscream.png him and go for kills after level 6. Just watch out for his turn potential.

VS

Wukong

Hard

He has good trades and a good all in at level 6. It makes this guy quite annoying to deal with.

VS

Yasuo

Hard
He is very mobile and can dodge your rupture.png easily. He also is good at melting tanks 1v1.

VS

Yorick

Hard

He can trap you with yorickw.png and let his ghouls devour you. Once he uses his yorickr.png stay away until you can kill it. Pay attention to how many graves he has dug. He can summon his ghouls when there are 3-4, so he will be looking to land his yoricke.png around this time.

Trading Back to Top

AB Trading.png

When trading with 31.png you want to always auto then press vorpalspikes.png. It’s an auto reset so will it will maximize your damage output. It will also then slow your target so you can follow up with your rupture.png afterwards. At this point you can throw your feralscream.png in there before or after rupture.png (based off if the opponent has abilities that they can use to dodge your rupture.png). Be sure to back off the trades once your Grasp%20of%20the%20Undying.png?width=32 proc is used once or twice. This is to make sure you don’t take back unnecessary damage back while being efficient with yours.

Against targets that are standing from back just try to throw out rupture.pngs first before you go for trades. Follow up with feralscream.png and vorpalspikes.png to lock them down for awhile and get some nice damage and Grasp%20of%20the%20Undying.png?width=32 procs in. Remember the more grasp procs you have the more permanent hp you will be getting.

 

Once you have feast.png, just work them down with trades then execute them once the circle icon comes around them. Sometimes it may be best to chogathpassive.png early just to get the damage in before they cc you or jump away with a 4.png or ability.

Lane phase, Mid game, Late game Back to Top

AB Phases.png

Lane phase

During laning phase you generally want to trade often, but not too much. Your chogathpassive.png will keep your hp/mana up so that’s why this is so. Trade, sustain then trade again. This also makes you stack Grasp%20of%20the%20Undying.png?width=32 procs to get hp.

Mid game

During mid game you will be tanky enough to win most trades in a 1v1. You want to be splitting at his time based off your opponent. If they don’t have sustain and you can manage them then slowly work them down and pressure their turrets. Be careful to not overextend when you don’t know where the rest of the enemy team is. Then look for 12.pngplays and turn a fight once you get there. Don’t forget you can roam. Push your lane then run down to mid and look for something. They won’t expect it so this can enable for even more pressure and plays.

Late game

During the late game you want to be splitting on the opposite of the main objective. So if baron is the main objective you go bot side. If its dragon then go top side. At this point, you are super tanky so you may want to be with your team more often. So always look to push then roam back to your team.

Team Fighting Back to Top

AB Team Fighting.png

In team fights, you can generally want to be ahead of your team soaking up damage. 31.png is a bit different from other tanks though. He can actually solo kill squishies if he lands everything and gets some time to get off his damage. This usually what you want to do. Otherwise, if you can’t kill their squishy that easily and they have champions that are tearing apart your backline like 92.png and 39.png. Then it’s best to fall back and peel these targets off your carries to protect them.

Sometimes there is no 1 you can just tunnel on so there will be times doing both is better. Front lining then falling back to peel after a few seconds just to distract their carries enough to buy time for your team to do something about their frontline.

Strengths and Weaknesses Back to Top

AB Strengths.png

Strengths

Good trade potential.

Very high sustain.

Infinite scaling because of his feast.png.

Has a true damage execute that scales with hp.

Nice build path in general.

One of the few champions with a silence left.

Weaknesses

Can be bullied early on in lane.

No escape ability.

rupture.png can be very hard to hit without the target being cc’ed first.

Must stack up feast.png to be useful. While this is a strength it can be a weakness early on if you are denied the chance to just eat minions/monters because you are being pressured a lot.

Tips and Tricks Back to Top

AB Tips.png

Remember your vorpalspikes.png is an auto reset so auto attack then use it to attack immediately.

Your feast.png is true damage so it isn’t affected by damage reduction abilities like moltenshield.png’s e or 3.png.

Your feast.png damage also isn’t reduced by 3193.png. So activate this before you use feast.png to increase the damage.

Your vorpalspikes.png and auto attack range increase with size, the bigger you get from feast.png,  so pay attention to this.

vorpalspikes.png gives 50 bonus attack range, so you can take advantage of this in trading.
