Greetings summoners,

Kog’Maw, the Mouth of the Abyss is the newest Void-based League of Legends champion. We all know the story of Gentleman Cho’Gath. If you want Scholar Kog’Maw to become a reality, let the League know by unleashing this terrorizing beast in the Institute of War!





Kog’Maw can be played very effectively as a hybrid caster/DPS champion. Focusing on Void Ooze, Bio-Arcane Barrage, and Living Artillery, Kog’Maw is great at dealing damage in bursts at long range. Using range to his advantage, I find that playing with a complete disregard for durability will suit you well. Kog’Maw also farms minions and monsters very quickly, allowing you to become the most deadly champion on the map in a very short amount of time.

Specifically, I aim for Chalice of Harmony, Guinsoo’s Rageblade, and Nashor’s Tooth. I also try to take the Golem as much as possible, which should be easy since all 4 of your abilities affect it. Always try to use Living Artillery when you can afford the mana, as it’s your best ability. From there, careful use of Bio-Arcane Barrage is crucial because of its lengthy cooldown. Proper management of all your abilities will give you a lot of damage output once the battles start.

My skill order is:

  1. Void Ooze
  2. Bio-Arcane Barrage
  3. Void Ooze
  4. Caustic Spittle
  5. Void Ooze
  6. Living Artillery
  7. Void Ooze
  8. Bio-Arcane Barrage
  9. Void Ooze
  10. Bio-Arcane Barrage
  11. Living Artillery
  12. Bio-Arcane Barrage
  13. Bio-Arcane Barrage
  14. Caustic Spittle
  15. Caustic Spittle
  16. Living Artillery
  17. Caustic Spittle
  18. Caustic Spittle

My item build, along with some other recommend items are:
  • Meki Pendant + 2 Health Potions
  • Chalice of Harmony
  • Sorcerer’s Shoes
  • Guinsoo’s Rageblade
  • Nashor’s Tooth
  • Infinity Edge
  • Hextech Gunblade
