Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png12.png - Flash and teleport always, make sure to have your ultimate when you teleport in otherwise you won't achieve much without it.


New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

You can go either Thunderlord's Decree or Grasp of the Undying, if you are against a sustain damage champion, get Grasp, if you want to go for short trades, get Thunderlord's.

You should go 0/12/18 or 0/18/12, either way, always get Insight at the Resolve tree (the one that reduces your summoner spell cd), if you go for Thunderlord's you can also get Intelligence for the 45% cdr if you want.

The standard Skill order R>E>Q>W, start E, get W @ level 2 and Q @ level 3, if you're laning against a ranged matchup (85.png or 8.png ) then you max your Q first, just be careful with how you spend your mana.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Against AA or Ranged matchup
    If you have Ignite and the other guy has teleport
    Against passive laners
    VS AD LANER AND JUNGLER

Core Items

    Always get this first
    get this second vs ad
    get this second vs ap
    shorter summoner spells and extra cdr
    if enemy team has a lot of slows
    vs full ad team

Situational Items

    Standard frontline build
    40% CDR build (good with thunderlords + intelligence, grab a kindlegem after IBG)
    VS FULL AD (change DMP or Randuins for Frozen heart if you want 40% cdr)
3751.png3068.png - Really good on Malphite, helps you push lane, gives you health, armor and some extra damage and it's cheap, always rush this vs AD.

3024.png - Glacial shroud is a great item early game, armor + cdr + some mana for just 1000g, you can also use to build either a 3025.png or a 3110.png depending on what you need.

3158.png - This boots is really cheap (900g) gives you CDR and lower CD on 4.png, really good if you like to cap CDR early.

3009.png - Swiftness has become really popular in pro play, junglers, supports and top laners are all buying this boots, while it does not give any defensive stat, the movespeed and slow reduction make up for that plus it's one of the cheapest boots right now.

3025.png - Gives you good damage, some tankiness and CDR, the AOE slow also really helps against hard to catch ADCs (429.png203.png236.png)

3742.png - DMP is a good alternative for 3143.png if the enemy team has no crit users or if you just want some extra bit of damage, as for the slow I think Randuin's slow is better 'cause it's AOE, the movespeed is good but you don't really need it since you can just ult their faces if you're getting kited.

3001.png - AP, MR and MR reduction aura, a good damage option for Malphite, especially if you have an allied who also benefits from de MR reduction.

MISC. OPTIONS

3028.png3174.png - Chalice early allows you to spam seismicshard.png, you can upgrade later to have extra damage and CD but I don't really recommend unless you're going for a heavy damage build.

3136.png3151.png - I used to rush Haunting Guise + Sorc Shoes all the time back at S3, I'd say go for it if you want damage, if you have Magic Pen runes with these items you can basically do true damage to anyone with your spells (which have a lot of base damage).

3078.png - I've seen a lot of 54.png go for this item, the 3044.png and 3057.png portion are good on him but he doens't make best use of crit and attack speed from 3086.png, the overall item is also really expensive (3800g), you could buy a 3068.png and a 3024.png with less gold, I'd say go for 3025.png instead.

3157.png - It's okay for full AP Malph, otherwise, stay away from this.

3060.png - This is actually really good for splitpushing, just promote a minion then join your team.

3512.png - Zz'rot gives a lot of map pressure, you can go on a side lane and let your voidlings push the, it will give you gold and most likely pull someone to clear the wave, which allows your team to get objectives arourd the map.

3027.png - I'd say to stay away from this item.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

He can poke you down with aatroxE.png and has to much sustain for you to deal with him, max landslide.png and don't fight him until you have 3068.png and 3110.png
14.png is good against him.

VS

Akali

Medium

You can't really do much against her, just farm,try not to die and get early MR, take 12.png cause she will probably try to roam a lot.

Optional: Max seismicshard.png and get early3028.png to keep poking her and keep her at low health.

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard

Total cancer at top lane, just sit back and farm, Max seismicshard.png and try to avoid her shit.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

You can't kill him, but he can kill you, get some health and MR then farm and group up with your team, you're better than him at teamfights.

take 12.png

VS

Darius

Medium

Rush 3068.png and you should be fine, don't trade with him early, his dariuscleave.png is stronger than your landslide.png

VS

Diana

Hard

You can't do much against her without jungle help, sit back and farm, try not to get hit by her dianaQ.png.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Hard

Avoid his infectedcleavermissilecast.png and don't try to fight him without your jungler, he outdamage and outtanks you.
Pick 14.png if no one on your team has it.

VS

Ekko

Hard

He's a pain to lane against, his ekkoQ.png is really slow so it's easy to avoid, try not to get stunned by his ekkoW.png and don't go for long trades against him after 6 since he can just ekkoR.png and probably kill you.

VS

Fiora

Medium

Don't fight her early on and try not to get poked by her fioraq.png, once you get 2 items you should be fine against her, just be careful of how you use your ufslash.png since she can easily block it with her fiorariposte.png.

VS

Fizz

Hard

Seriously, why people play him top lane, get some MR and try to grab as much CS as possible without dying to him, also, keep track of his E fizzjump.png CD, otherwise he'll just laugh at you when you try to ufslash.png him.

VS

Galio

Hard
3.png easily beats 54.png in lane, he gets too tanky and deals too much damage for him, get a early 3028.png and get as many CS as you can.

VS

Gangplank

Medium

Avoid his raisemorale.png and get a somewhat early 3143.png (3rd or 4th item).

VS

Garen

Easy

Rush 3068.png and don't get too low on life, otherwise he can 4.pnggarenslash3.png14.pnggarenjustice.png your ass.

VS

Gnar

Medium
150.png can be a real pain if you don't know how to deal with him, against him I'd say rush a 3110.png and max seismicshard.png, use your Q to chase him and force his gnarE.png which has a really high CD, he has to play passive without it, if he's about to transform, just backoff and wait for it to go away, if you manage to get him low on Miniform you can easily ufslash.png14.png him for easy kill.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

Don't fight him early, if he snowballs he will dominate the game so just farm for your 3068.png and don't give him any advantage.

VS

Heimerdinger

Hard

God save you my friend, just try to grab as much CS as you can, this lane is unwinnable without jungle help.

VS

Illaoi

Medium

Don't fight close to her tentacles, that's what she wants so she can maximize her damage, she'll usually go near one of her tentacles when she wants to illaoiE.png you, if she does land her E on you, your best option is fight her since this will reduce the amount of time she has to hit your soul, if you landslide.png her and avoid her illaoiQ.png she can't do much against you. Remember to not group up on her, otherwise she just kill you whole team with illaoiR.png

VS

Irelia

Medium

She outdamage you early and has a stronger mid game than yours, max landslide.png and just farm, if she jumps you with her ireliahitenstyle.png on, E-Q her and walk away. Once you get some health and a 3110.png it becomes easier for you, grab some MR (3102.png) if she goes for the 3124.png build.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

He can snowball on you early by poking you with jarvanivdragonstrike.png until you get low enough so he can all in you, if he does get ahead, you're f***ed, he shreds your armor and can tank your damage with jarvanivgoldenaegis.png and can also force your ufslash.png with his jarvanivcataclysm.png, play safe early until you get tanky enough.

VS

Jax

Medium

Jax has really good mixed damage, but most of his damage is AA based, landslide.png max + 3110.png should be enough to not get killed by him.

VS

Jayce

Medium

He'll use his ranged advantage to try to kill you early, your landslide.png doens't do much against him, so max your seismicshard.png and maybe go for a 3025.png so you can easily catch up to him.

VS

Karma

Hard

I rarely see her top and when I do I usually not 54.png, but if you happen to get this matchup, you're gonna have a bad time, constant poke, can easily kite you with all her spells and can outsustain your damage pretty easily with a karmachakra.png+karmaspiritbond.png+karmasoulshield.png. Rush 3028.png and 1057.png or 3211.png if you wanna be able to lane against her.

VS

Kayle

Hard

This is a free lane for 10.png, I'd say don't pick Malphite against her but if you have to face her, just sit back in exp range and try to get as much CS as you can.

VS

Kennen

Medium

Similar to 150.png85.png is a pain to deal with if you don't know how to play against, he'll try to poke you with AAs and kennenshurikenhurlmissile1.png+kennenbringthelight.png, max your seismicshard.png, go for a early 3028.png+3001.png+3111.png with some magic pen runes, everytime he goes for AA you, just Q his face and walk away, repeat this until he's low enough for you to chase him with seismicshard.png and you can get a easy kill with ufslash.png+14.png, Kennen player usually like to rush 3157.png which is the worst option against you.

VS

Lissandra

Medium

Similar to 85.png, but she has more CC

VS

Lulu

Medium

Similar to 85.png, but she's harder to kill and is more cancerous.

VS

Maokai

Medium

Grab some early MR (3211.png or 1057.png) and just farm, It's hard to kill him, but he can't kill you either, watch out for jungle ganks tho, since 57.png can easily maokaiunstablegrowth.png your ass for a easy gank.

VS

Nasus

Hard

This is a really passive matchup, which is why is favored for 75.png since he can freely stack his siphoningstrikenew.png, If you go tank, you can't kill him without jungle help, if you go damage he can easily kill you if he stacked enough.

VS

Olaf

Medium

You can't fight him until you have 2 or 3 items, so try not to die to him early otherwise he'll snowball out of control.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Play passive till 6 and ask your jungler to gank, 80.png has no escapes, if you  ufslash.png him your jungler can easily follow up for a kill.

VS

Poppy

Medium

Her poke with passive can be annoying but your passive should be up before her if you don't take unnecessary damage, her poppydevastatingblow.png is easy to avoid and she can't stun you if you stay away from walls, however 54.png can't do much to kill her, if he can somehow get her low enough so he can kill her, she'll just poppydiplomaticimmunity.png him away.

VS

Quinn

Hard

She's like 67.png with more burst, she can be really annoying to play against cause of her quinnQ.png, against her you need go for a 3025.png if you wanna catch her, 3110.png don't really stops her from doing a lot of damage and kiting you, however, she doens't need you to get fed since she can just roam and gank with quinnR.png once she gets 6 make sure you teammates know when she's missing.

VS

Renekton

Hard

Laning phase against Renekton can be very hard if he ever gets a lead, the armor shred from the second part of renektonsliceanddice.png not only make you easier to kill but also reduces damage on your landslide.png, it becomes even harder once he gets level 6 and 3071.png.
Focus on farming to get your core items, then look to set up plays around the map using 12.png and  ufslash.png.

VS

Rengar

Medium

He'll probably try to kill you early to snowball the lane in his favor, if he succeed, you and your team will go through hell with 107.png oneshotting everyone on the map, play passive, grab a lot of armor and health and stay away from bushes.

VS

Riven

Medium
54.png can deal with 92.png, but only if you don't give her a lead, farm your 3068.png and 3110.png and you'll be fine against her, just avoid trading with her, you can't win but she can, however, she'll fall off if she doens't get some kills.

VS

Rumble

Hard

He will constantly rumbleflamethrower.png you and push the wave to force you to farm undertower and he can just rumbleshield.png your trades, your landslide.png doens't help that much in this matchup and he can have a lot more impact in teamfight than you, grab early MR and get as many CS as you can without dying or taking too much damage.

VS

Ryze

Hard

He's weak early on, but once he gets going there's no stoping him, you'll need jungle help.

VS

Shen

Easy

You two can keep hitting each other as much as you want, but you probably will be doing that for a long time, just farm, get 12.png and follow him when he shenstandunited.png (or just stop him with your ufslash.png)

VS

Shyvana

Medium

She's AA based but most of her damage is magic, so you'll need a mix of armor and MR, however, she gets way stronger than you the later the game goes on.

VS

Singed

Medium

Don't bother against him, just farm and don't chase him.

VS

Sion

Hard

People seem to forgot that 14.png still exists, but he does and he still decent, especially against 54.png, Tankiness, good magic damage, armor shred and more damage and CC overall, Sion does almost everything that fucks up Malph, the only way to get worse is if he was ranged.

VS

Swain

Hard

Kind like 13.png but with more sustain and better early game, good luck, try not to feed.

VS

Tahm Kench

Hard

He's tanky, has magic damage and %max health damage, just sit back and farm and try not to get hit by his tahmkenchQ.png or he'll easily be able to tahmkenchW.png

VS

Teemo

Hard

He's satan (but seriously, pretend he's 85.png with a lot more damage)

VS

Trundle

Medium

Similar to 102.png, however he has less (much less) magic damage but has more sustain, he can also drain your health and resistances with his trundleR.png, he can't do much if he gets ahead tho but that doens't mean you shouldn't worry about giving him kills in lane.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

You can easily beat 23.png once you get 3068.png, you can outdamage and outtank him, killing him might be hard because of his slashcast.png and undyingrage.png but you can easily force him away from lane, just be careful at levels 1~3 cause he can easily cheese you with a random crit, also, he's Tryndamere, even if goes 0/7/1 he can just splitpush all day.

VS

Udyr

Medium

If he goes udyrtigerstance.png, don't fight him until you have a armor item and you should be fine, If he goes udyrphoenixstance.png grab some early MR. 77.png with udyrtigerstance.png can easily kill you early if he drop the double DoT on you and with udyrphoenixstance.png he'll push lane non-stop, he becomes a splitpush god if you let him get ahead, but if he isn't fed you can send 2 people to force him away or kill him.

VS

Vayne

Hard

If she play right she can easily kill you, early on you can't do much against her, once you get your ufslash.png you can start doing work against her, max seismicshard.png >landslide.png, grab 3110.png and 3025.png, if she tumble towards you, Q her and chase her, she'll probably vaynecondemn.png you away but unless you get stunned you can still follow up with the MS boost you get from seismicshard.png, once you hit her with landslide.png+3025.png, she won't be able to kite you or hit you, if she 4.png away you can finish her off with ufslash.png.

VS

Vladimir

Medium

Similar to 85.png, but with more sustain.

VS

Volibear

Easy

He's kind like 86.png, just don't get low or he'll volibearw.png your ass, he also has decent magic damage with volibeare.png and volibearr.png.

VS

Wukong

Hard

He's really annoying in lane, he'll go for monkeykingnimbus.png+monkeykingdoubleattack.png and monkeykingdecoy.png away, or he'll monkeykingdecoy.png in so he can monkeykingdoubleattack.png you for the armor shred and then monkeykingnimbus.png for bonus damage, he also builds items like 3071.png and 3142.png, try not to die early or he'll snowball the lane

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Kinda like 23.png, but with more dashes, however, 157.png still can kill you even if he's 0/10/0, once he gets 3087.png+3031.png, he gets alot stronger, if he's able to land his yasuoR.png, he'll get 50% bonus armor pen, so he can still do damage to you even with 3068.png+3110.png

VS

Yorick

Hard

He will poke you with ghouls and make sure you won't be playing League of Legends for at least 20 minutes, after that you either lost or became a ultbot (which is okay for 54.png).

83.png pushes lane really hard due to his ghouls nature and he has 0 escapes, it's a free kill for your jungler basicly.

VS

Zac

Hard
154.png kinda does what 54.png does, but he has more CC and damage, also his damage is magic, don't fight him, just farm, even if you fight him, he'll either sustain back or just pop his passive
