Hey ladies and gents, hope all is well. As the title suggests, I'm in a bit of a quandry about where to take my item build with my new favourite champion Rammus in the late game.

Here is what I have so far:

Starting item -> Cloth Armour, health pot, mana pot

1st Item -> Heart of Gold

2nd Item -> Mercury Treads

3rd Item -> Aegis of the Legion

4th Item -> Frozen Heart

5th Item -> ???

6th Item -> ???

As you can see, I'm at a loss regarding my 5th and 6th items... As far as I'm concerned, it's a tossup between:

- Warden's Mail
- Thornmail
- Guardian Angel
- Sunfire Cape

What do you guys think would be a good fit. Obviously with Rammus I tend to play more of a support/tank roll with few kills and tons of assists, so I'm looking for items that support that. I know most Rammus guides swear by Sunfire Cape, but I find it to be a **** ton of money to spend for an aura, so I don't know if it really outshines the other items. If the game is going late enough, I could always sell the Heart of Gold to pick up a third of these items, but I'm not going to count on that.

So please, let me know what you guys think. Any input you can offer is greatyl appreciated!

Depending on the opposing team. Vs caster heavy go for magic armor, vs melee heavy go regular armor and hp, ofc.

Starting item ; Doran's shield, health pot

1) Heart of Gold
2) Heart of Gold
3) Boots of speed
3) Healt of Gold
4) Finish mercury's tread
5) Aegis
6) Replace shield with Guardian angel
7-8) Replace heart with thornmail if good dps, force of nature if good casters.
9) Replace heart with Frozen heart

That's my build.
Always work.

Pretty sure the OP was asking for input on his build.

OP:
Looks solid, but maybe some sort of mana regen should be added there somewhere in the early stages?

Yeah, as MeanBean says, should always get a mana regen item (Chalice) on Rammus.
