This guide seems pretty "solid", but me personally I might build a hp/armor item earlier than he does. Regardless it seems like a great place to start.

Well if you don't try and help people that have no idea what to do they will then proceed to do something like a straight AP malphite in ranked with no idea how to fit that playstyle. I'm hoping that the advice I give to people in situations like this will take this information and then play a few normals with it before doing well in ranked with a new role.

Love Yuri: Tanks have to buy to the situation.

If you are the main tank, getting Aegis of Legion is probably always a safe bet.

Against magic heavy teams, get MR items. If they are super bursty, prioritize Banshee's Veil. Otherwise, Force of nature (or just negatron cloak) is very useful, as it builds into situational items.

Against Physical Heavy teams, get armor. If they have crazy burst, zhonya's hourglass is okay, but generally just popping your w works. If they have high autoattackers, get frozen heart or Randuin's Omen.

Against a balanced team, figure out who is dealing the most damage, and prioritize countering them first.

I like getting Sorc shoes on him. I usually always end up with a Banshees and a Glacial Shroud. But yeah, tanks always build super situational.

Max q asap with e. I dont personally play jungle and i run with ignite/ghost, it works great early game and should net you a few extra kills during that phase and mid game. You can solo mid effectivly or side lane, which contrary to popular beleif malph is a great solo for the mid lane and dominates most other champions there with a few exceptions. I go 21/10/0.

First item health portion of philo stone with healing pot... last hit and harras with with q, but only use it near max mana to start(since level 3,5, 7 will do more damage) and or net an early kill.

-finish philo stone
-boots
-1-2 hearts of gold(if you get a vibe that your farming isnt going to go so well get 2 otherwise 1)
-upgraded boots(dodge if 2-3+ physical otherwise MR if going against alot of stuns/disables/casters).
- In most situations BV
- Sunfire cloak
- upgrade one heart of gold into the slow item
- 1 warmogs
- last item dependent on their team comp and however the game is progressing

If my score isnt 14-3 or something crazy like that then I typically have at least a 2:1 kill death ratio... btw your main role is to ult 3-5 of them and kill their squishies and protect yours.
