Hey Malphs,

I read somewhere (I don't remember where) that Armor gives Malphite attack power, so stacking it is a great idea. Is this true? or is there an item needed to give him this ability? Ive been experimenting with different builds so I'm curious about this.

Thanks =)

It powers up his Slam Ground move. Dmg+70% armor, IIRC.

You can just read Malphs spells. Says he gets bonus damage based on his armor. So yes items like Sunfire cape, and Frozen heart are very good on him. Makes him a tank and gives him a lot more damage.

ive been getting madrids blood something (the item with +500 dmg to minion, +25 att and 40% att spd) and it works great with malphite. So i recommend going for

1: Armour (depending on enemies) Thornmail or Natures Armour
2: Enhance 3 speed boost boots
3: Madreds blood thing previously explained
4: Sunfire cape
5: Frozen Heart
6: Used for mana regen item, eggnog potion

Rammus is the one that gets attack damage for armor. Malphite gets additional damage to his Ground Slam ability, which, while nice, isn't something you really want to focus your item build around.

his passive is good with HP items, and his ground slam is the spell that benefits a lot from armor

so in general, get a good balance between hp & armor

he would be able to take a hit or two, and also deal good dmg with ground slam.

But it all depends on what team you are going against, say if the other team got 4-5 casters... then get some MR in there.

Malphite is one of those champs that needs an effective item build to do well in battle.

Why get a Madred's if you are going pure tank items otherwise? His attack speed isn't fast enough to justify madred's and Brutal Strikes pairs better with pure damage items or crit if you are doing a DPS malph build.

Malphite should be tanking. all his abilities are key to getting in the thick of it, instigating and taking hits.

although a few games I've used Rod of Ages (+ health and AP for Q and R damage increased), the BEST way imho to use Malphite is:

Ninja Tabi, Banshee's, Force of Nature, Frozen Heart.

This will give you about 60% reduced damage from BOTH magic and auto-attack, and a decent amount of health and mana.

I've written a Malphite guide that I think is rather helpful should you need it.

Thanks for your help.

To some of the other posters, I really don't see anywhere where Malph gets AP based on armor, other than GS. I'm pretty sure you have him mixed up with another champ.
