I fail hard with melee champs, but I was determined to prove my Malady/Madred's/SoD build was viable on him today. And I was right. As was typical of me on a melee champ, I died a lot, forgot my score, but we won, I soloed a couple turrets (with full defensive masteries, Amumu is naturally tanky), and got a solo triple kill. It was 1v2 and I took out both champs (I think it was Malphite and Twitch), and then another champ came to finish me off and I killed him too (I think Pantheon), then I recalled at that point. My teammates QQed about me not warning them that I wasn't going to be there tank, but we still owned that game.

With the nerf to Sunfire Cape, I declare that people need to stop presuming Amumu is a tank and either a) presume he'll go DPS and just be happy if he tanks, or b) don't presume anything at all and ask before locking in.

Stop throwing around the word viable without actually understanding what it means.

dps amumu is like ap yi or ad janna. free win for me as long as nobody on my team does the same ^^

not all amumus stacked sunfires you know o.O
best to go with him tank with slight ap (my build when full:sunfire,warmorgs,FoN,swiftnes,crystal scepter,abyssal scepter)
it works well you pwn everything in sight

Yeah not stacking sunfires wasn't nearly as bad a blow to amumu as his ult getting nerfed was.

Well, AP amumu works. Not as much as the tank one, but I'm pretty sure it's way more viable than DPS amumu.

Critdinger is fun though.
