As a longtime Kog'Maw player, I've been enjoying the latest buffs to him. However, there's always been one question which has pestered me: Should I rush Malady or Madred's Bloodrazor first?

I know a lot of people are probably going to laugh at me for suggesting that I get anything other than a Bloodrazor first, but hear me out. While Bloodrazor might be the item for Kog'Maw, it costs 3800 gold, whereas Malady only costs 1825 gold. My current style with Kog'Maw is to give him lots of MPen through runes and Sorcerer's Shoes (since his W already does good base damage), and Malady helps cut through Magic Resistance for a really cheap cost.

On the other hand, I feel that Bloodrazor as a first item promotes more passive gameplay and longer farming (helped by Madred procs), but makes it much harder to get early kills. However, the moment he gets it, his DPS is pretty much unparalleled.

What do you guys think? Please provide your reasoning and abstain from calling me a n00b just for rushing Malady before Bloodrazor if you're going to disagree.

Um. You do realize it takes time to farm, right? And that the game can end before you get both, right?

I'm asking which to get first so I can maximize my usefulness over as long a period of time as possible.

Malady, it gives great stats and champions don't have lots of hp yet. Also, the AP benefits all your spells

I would rush depending on the enemy actually.
If you feel harrassing is easy win, go malady.
If you feel you are just going to farm a lot and not gonna get kills much early, Madreds for better farming.
