I've been having alot of problems with my mana as malphite. I have mana regen blues, start with a doran's ring, everything, yet I seem to be OOM at the worst times when i really need my mana for a full combo, even with all of those. In lane i want to be able to harass as much as possible with Q but that's it, I can just last hit with autoattacks.

I was thinking of building an early chalice instead of dorans ring, since chalice would still be decent because of the MR it provides, and it would solve my mana problems throughout the entire game. what does everyone think?

I'll probably get reamed for this, but I'll start with a Meki Pendant which I will turn into a chalice. Not only can I spam my skills, it gives me some MR which I'm always have to receive on Malphite.

I second clarity if you are having mana issues. The other option is stop spamming Q in the early game and just focus on harassment/last hits. You are far better off working on a Catalyst for early game sustainability.

Catalyst would be a good option, as well as a Chalice.

I would suggest a Glacial Shroud. Surprised no one mentioned that already. Catalyst (for Banshees), then GS and you should be set.

delay your harass until level 3 or 5 (level 2/3 Q); this will do more than buying Chalice
level 1 Q is not worth spamming

Catalyst/Shroud is good
when I play Malph as support (Flash/Clairvoyance) I get Philosopher Stone 1st or 2nd

^^ This -- lvl 1 Q is not worth it, save your mana, last hit, and only use Q to save yourself or your lane-mate. Once its lvl 2 then start your harass.

I run 9/21/0 with Malphite and MP5/level Seals, always seems to be enough for early/mid game.

I'd ignore the clarity-people. really not worth it, to be honest.


I run mp/5@18 blues/yellows, usually meditation, and grab a chalice. 890 gold for infinite mana and magic resistance..... yes, please.

If not that, catalyst is always amazing on any champ that buys a bveil (everyone)
