He can be tank, he can be a DPS, but most people opt for TANKY DPS.
Anyways settle a debate with a friend, he says Mundo's primary role is to tank.

I think tanks should have:
1. A initiator skills (powerball, shen's dash)
2. A disable, slow doesn't count (taunts, stuns .etc)
3. High base hp/defense
4. A damage reduction skills (defense ball curl, shen's ult .etc)

Mundo has cleaver, but a slow doesn't disable, no imitator skills unless you count his ultimate...which is basically just ghost.

Then there are offtanks that potentially can be a tank, but usually shouldn't like Nunu, Nasus .etc
Discuss?

He's DPS as primary, with being a hard ****er to take down as a natural pre-req.

If you build Mundo pure tank, the other team has absolutely zero reason to attack him. His damage will be ignorable past mid game. He has such a great steroid skill that I think it's a waste to not go DPS with him. Building him with some beef synergizes with his ult and lets him stay in the thick of the fight for longer (which, let's face it, is a problem for melee DPS).

Pure tank is a waste. Beefy DPS is where it's at.

Mundo's primary function is to be Mundo and go where he pleases.

I build mundo as a tanky dps.

Normally rush Spirit Visage and Frozen mallet+boots

and then the other 3 spots i can build bloodthirster+ Phantomdancer/madreds+another item that suits the game.

It really annoys me when people say that Mundo should be a pure tank. I always build him as a "bulky" dps character. Infact, I even take 21-0-9 masteries, and have no problem dying at all. Getting spirit visage early is awesome to supplement your ultimate. Stacking health is a bad idea, because items like Madred's will tear you apart. The key is getting life steal, while stacking armor pen. And getting frozen mallet is nice because it combines with your natural dps, and tankyish features.

beefy dps/anti carry

He is not a true tank

He has great abilities to stick to a carry and to kill the carry before he dies

Why I do not consider him a tank, No Hard CC,

Amen to this thread!

I get tired of being told to tank on him. When we have a real tank, and I can build AS and a bit of beef, I can easily go 15/5/15 and lead my team to victory. If I have to pure tank, they just kill my team, then chase me down and kill me .
