Summoner Spells Back to Top

Read The Intro At The Bottom Plox (Lolking does not allow me to move sections :( )


4.png7.png This combo is pretty obvious and meta for all Marksman. 

1.png4.png Well this you have to decide when all the champs are picked. If they have 3 or more champs with heavy crowd control (like 4.png32.png45.png127.png9.png25.png, ...) Then you should consider if you want cleanse or not. Heal will give you an advantage early game, but, as I will explain later, the early game is not where many things are gonna happen.

The only thing that you could swap is savagery with Wanderer. If you are confident that you do not need the extra damage vs minions, and you are a creep score master, then take wanderer. 


Fervor is extremely good on you because you will get the max stacks in no time thanks to your kogmawbioarcanebarrage.png3124.png and 3085.png
After like 3 seconds, you will be dealing your full amount of damage in teamfights. 

Vampirism is a little bit better, it gives you some more sustain. But Natural Talent works also with Kog, cause he has got some decent ap scaling.

To start: kogmawcausticspittle.png is a s h i t y y ability. They removed the passive attack speed, and now there is no reason at all to level this ability. So don't, you get waayy better stats from your W and E. 


Your kogmawbioarcanebarrage.png is your key ability. So do not use this to early or to late. Use this when you know you get the most damage from it (so not when you are running away, you cannot kite very well with this..) Use it when your team engages and you have your support protecting you, and you only have to attack move. 
In lane this helps for getting cs under the tower alot, it provides a lot of damage vs creeps. 

Your  kogmawvoidooze.png is the only form of cc/defence Kog'maw has to offer. Use it when they are chasing you or in a tight spot when you are teamfighting to zone some enemies. 

In lane this is basicly your only chance in killing the enemy, if you place this one when they are tower diving, you will get a lot of free damage with your kogmawbioarcanebarrage.png

Your kogmawlivingartillery.png is not that much of a big deal anymore. It only does much damage when they are below 25% HP, so use this in teamfights to kill running enemies (the range at level 3 is huge). And in lane to kill safe CS or to keep your fervor of battle stacks active. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    vs passive support

Core Items

    first back
    core, first guinsoo then hurricane.

Situational Items

    pick one as 4th item
    very behind (0/4/0) pick 5th(after sterak/MAW)
START : I prefer Dorans Blade to begin with over Cull. The only time I would pick Cull is when the enemy has a really passive lane like 16.png or 40.png. The 80 health early game is just to much and I do not feel very safe in lane without it.

FIRST BACK : If you were able to pick up circa 1400 gold then you can push the wave and back. Here is the moment where I pick up cull together with the start of 3124.png. At this point, you still cannot win trades in 2v2, so don't try. 
CORE : Well 3124.png is of course core, the first item you complete. When you got this one in lane, and the score is still 0-0 in bot lane, you can start to play a bit more aggressive, you can use your kogmawvoidooze.png if they get to close and shred their health with kogmawbioarcanebarrage.png. But keep in mind to not go to deep, after that you have no cc or abilities left, so do not chase or flash after them if they run. 

After 3124.png go for 3085.png. It will be like 20-25 minutes in game when you pick up 3085.png (if everything went as planned..) And that is the point that you should head to the mid turret and do some small teamfights there. When you get 3085.png, you literally win every 5v5 if you play it safe. 

WHAT NOW? : Well after those items you still have none lifesteal... So you should pick up a 3153.png. The passive gives you even more %health damage per basic attack and boy, you got a lot of those basic attack thingys. 

If you are behind, pick up a 3053.png instead of 3153.png as third. 

LAST ITEMS : 3156.png synergises extremely well with guinshoo/sterak and will help you to not die in teamfights. Pick 3139.png vs a zed or a lot of hard cc.

VS

Ashe

Hard

extremely hard, never pick kog'maw into Ashe. The laning phase will be hell, and you will get killed at level 6. Play safe and try to rotate to mid turret and help other lanes.


Try to ask for a braum/Soraka support

VS

Caitlyn

Easy

You outscale her, like really hard. The pre level 6 will be hard but when you get your item power spike you will wreck her with your dps, just don't get outpoked. 

Again a Soraka or Braum will do extremely well here (very defensive/safe or hard engage and defence)

VS

Corki

Medium

His mid game power spike comes earlier then yours, you will outscale but he will give you a hard time to come to that 2 item power spike. he can carpetbomb.png out of your kogmawvoidooze.png, and he wins the short trades.

So don't trade and just try to pick all the cs. 

VS

Draven

Medium

I personally hate Draven. If you lose an early fight it is over. 

So my advice ; do not fight or trade with him. 

You will do way more damage late game so no reason to try and kill him in lane.

VS

Ezreal

Hard

Blue build ezreal is a pain in the arse... 

He will win early and even be equal at the mid/early late game. 

You win this game if you got hard engage, otherwise do not pick Kog.

VS

Graves

Medium

Graves ADC is not played a lot (but I play him so fuck you)


You need 3053.png in this matchup, otherwise he will be able to blow you up if he gets a bit ahead. play very safe, and only start basic attacking in teamfights when you are sure he cannot get to close to you. 

VS

Jhin

Medium

Kinda hard, you can shred him in lane with a good placed kogmawvoidooze.png when you got guinsoo. 

His early is strong, just do not get caught with his jhinW.png, if he uses it, position yourself and use your kogmawbioarcanebarrage.png to trade

VS

Kalista

Easy

Kalista is nerfed in 6.6, she is goddamn weak. 

But still wait for your guinsoo to start trading, just play the farm game

VS

Lucian

Medium

he has got a dash , he has got the mid game. Thats it, again after your 2 item power spike you will do 10 times as much as him in teamfights. just play the farm game until you get guinsoo, if you have got a hard engage support you can trade, I said trade, not fully engage, just do your e/w and back of if they are not slowed anymore.

VS

Sivir

Hard

Well after the last buff on Sivir, her late game is awesome... 

It is really easy to get behind in CS in this lane, but do not get to close for cs, just play as safe as possible, you could trade when you get guinsoo, but care for her hard engage.

VS

Vayne

Easy

you are stronger than her in every point in the game. you can just start cull here and farm up, or (if you got hard engage support) go dorans and fuck her up

intro Back to Top

Hello guys, My name is the thijskelol and I am currently a plat II ADC main. 
The reason why I am making this guide is because Kog'maw is OP, and still he has only a play rate around 3%.

The reason why? Well I think this is mainly because his early game is soooo weak, and if you try to fight or trade early, you will feed, no exception.


So I make this guide to learn you to not feed pre your 2 item power spike. 

So copy pasta this sentence if you are gonna play Kog bot : Hi, play safe until my 2nd item power spike please :)

In the bit higher elo's, this will be sufficient. But I can imagine that in bronze and low silver this will not be enough to reach their braincell

Copy pasta this sentence if you are bronze : HI, PLAY SAFE UNTIL MY 2ND ITEM POWER SPIKE PLEASE XD 

So, that was the first step in: Not to feed with Kog'maw

ALSO 

DO NOT PICK UP KOG'MAW IF THE ENEMY TEAM GOT 3 OF THE FOLLOWING CHAMPIONS :  
22.png26.png238.png7.png11.png91.png105.png254.png90.png107.png
Assassins/hard engagers are bad mkay..

You are a tank shredder, but there is nothing to shred if you are dead (plz no copy pasterino)
