i just saw the kog maw spotlight and i decided to buy it. i noticed that the reviewer in the spotlight says that kog maw is a champion to be played as hybrid. i dont know why but i just played a custom game and i didnt do very well, actually i SUCKED REALLY BAD. can anyone suggest me an execellent hybrid build or a very good build that you like to play? also if you guys have any suggestions on kog maws gameplay please tell me cause i just spent 6300 and i dont know if it was worth it xD

(sorry for the bad english)

Thanks a lot!!!

He can't be build Hybrid, primarily because no one can be built hybrid and do well. There simply is not any good hybrid scaling in this game.

Magic damage on attacks.


Doran's Shield ---> Malady ---> Madred's Razors ---> (Wit's End or Phage or Defensive items ) ---> Bloodrazor ---> Defensive items/Frozen Mallet/ more of the same.

AP is fairly weak, all he gets out of AD is the increased range, play to his strength.

I go with ap, it works well for me.

Build:
-Dorans Ring/ Shield.
-Tear of Goddess.
-Haunting guide
-Sorc Boots
-AA staff
-Deathcap
-Rylais

You could replace tear of goddess with a rod of ages if you're doing well. early

If you are playing a pure AP Kog, you must have magic pen. His ultimate's scaling isn't as bad as people make it out to be AP wise (it's not great, but given the cooldown/range on the R any more AP scaling would make it hideously broken), but magic penetration makes it scale far better.

Just as a comparison, if you have 600 AP, Sorc Boots, Void Staff, and Deathcap; adding a Hunting Guise will add approximately the same damage to his R as a fully stacked Mejai; and this will come only at a loss of 50 damage each on his other 2 nukes.

Don't do it in ranked games, though. AP Kog needs a lot of farm to obtain the necessary mana pool, magic pen, and AP for his ult to start hitting ~100 MR enemies for ~460 damage per R. And he needs to hog the blue buff to take absolutely full advantage of his ult's spamability. As in, a lot of "ifs."
