How do you kill blue golem at lvl 1 as Jungle Amumu? Even with leash, cloth 5, and smite I got executed. Do you need to kill the small minions first? I'm a great Amumu laner and a very good jungler on other characters but with Amumu I get executed. Help?

First off, take Despair as your level 1 skill.

Make sure you're running AR Seals. The extra armor helps immensely on that early jungle.

If you're still struggling, go at least 17 points into the Defense Mastery tree for extra AR, Health, and damage reduction against minions.

With this setup, I have no problem killing the blue golem, solo, by popping a red potion, and smiting it when it gets low.

you go tears first because it does % of max life, which is a crapload on the big golem. And go with runes, eg. MrP red, Armor/dodge yellow, AP/CdR blue, hp quint.

I don't know about the other runes, since I don't really have any solid rune pages for any specific champs, but the AR yellows are a definitely necessity, but I'm not so sure MrP is really needed. Afterall, Amumu's passive reduces his target's MR every time he lands an auto attack. I've also found AP runes decidedly lackluster.

Though I think MP5 blues would go a long way. Afterall, Amumu can burn through his mana pool really quickly, even during the late game, and you can't always guarantee you'll have the blue buff as a crutch to keep your mana up.

But yeah, to the OP's question, take Despair first. Tantrum is a nice skill (and should be what you take at level 2 to supplement your DPS in the jungle), but if you want to take down blue at level 1, you need to get those tears flowing.
