How to play Amumu


Amumu is a tank jungler. He is not the best champion before level 5, but as soon as you get Curse Of The Sad Mummy (Ultimate) he becomes a team fight god! In the early game, Amumu wants to farm early and get level 5 so he can gank any lane and either Flash and Ultimate or try and land your Bandage Toss (1st Ability) and follow that up with the Ultimate. This allows your teammate/s to follow up and get an easy kill. One important thing to note with Amumu is that Despair (2nd Ability) is a toggle ability. This means you need to make sure you turn it off if there is no one nearby or you will waste a lot of mana! 

Amumu's Abilities


Cursed Touch (Passive)

Attacks curse the target to take additional true damage from incoming magic damage for a few seconds. Subsequent applications of Curse Touch will refresh its duration.

This means that 10% of magic damage that the enemies take won't be reduced by magic resistance so this works great with the more ability power damage you have on your team.

Bandage Toss (1)

Amumu launches a bandage that deals magic damage and stuns the target for a second, pulling himself to the target. Amumu can use this ability to get over walls which makes it very useful when moving around in the jungle, and you can use this on enemies as well as a surprise factor.

Bandage Toss also works great with Flash as you can Flash just after you activate Bandage Toss and your projective will go even further forward so you can use this to catch enemies out.

Despair (2)

This ability is a toggle, meaning you can turn it on or off at any time. When activated, Amumu begins to weep and deal magic damage to nearby enemies every second. Note that you should turn off this ability when there are no enemies nearby, as you can drain through your mana if kept on during the whole game.

Despair works really well with Liandry's Torment as every second you apply the passive to deal more damage.

Tantrum (3)

This ability has a passive that when it is first learned, you take reduced physical damage, which makes Amumu to be tankier. The active deals magic damage to nearby enemies and slows them for just under a second. This is your main damage ability when moving around the jungle.

Also, Tantrum's cooldown is reduced by just under a second when Amumu is hit by an attack. This includes jungle monsters so make sure to always use Tantrum so the cooldown can be reduced when being hit by jungle monsters.

Curse of the Sad Mummy (Ultimate)

This is the game-changer ability for Amumu and what can win games with the click of a button. Amumu deals magic damage to all nearby enemies and stuns them for over a second.

This ability has a large area and is a huge AoE stun when used correctly. If you can get a big engagement off with your Bandage Toss, followed by Curse of the Sad Mummy, you can carry a teamfight and win the game.

Mercury's Treads - Gargoyle

Amumu is known as a big team fight tank that can change a fight in an instance with his ultimate and this reflects on the build as well. Liandry's Torment is the only damage item in this build, but works really well with Amumu's abilities, especially Despair (2nd Ability). When you activate Despair, Amumu has an area of effect puddle around him which does damage over time to enemies. This works with the increased damage of Liandry's every second. This enables you to clear your jungle camps and get objectives quicker!


For runes we have:

Aftershock

Amumu's 1st ability (Bandage Toss) and ultimate (Curse of the Sad Mummy) can immobilize enemies. This means that he will get the extra resistances to stay alive longer and allow him to stay next to the enemies to do damage with his 2nd and 3rd ability

Weakness

Same as Aftershock, Amumu can immobilize with his 1st and ultimate ability. If you can hit a 5 man ultimate the whole team will take more damage from weakness.

Bone Plating

As Amumu you will be ganking a lot and getting involved in team fights. Bone Plating will make you a bit tankier at the start when looking to engage.

Hunter - Genius

As Amumu, your ultimate is the most impactful ability that can carry a teamfight if you can hit multiple enemies. So going Hunter - Genius is great because you can get some ability haste so you can use your ultimate more often.

Flash
Smite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. Work's really well with Amumu because if you see the whole team grouped you can use your Flash with Curse Of The Sad Mummy to get a huge team fight ultimates. Smite is a must for when you are playing jungle. Help's you out a lot when clearing the jungle and securing the epic monsters.

Jungle Path


With Amumu he doesn't have the best 1 vs 1 potential vs other junglers. This means that most of the time you want to go for a full clear in the jungle which means you work your way through your jungle and kill every camp. When you finish killing every camp in your jungle you will get Level 5 and can easily gank any lane. Amumu benefits a lot from starting at Blue Sentinel! This helps a lot with Amumu and his mana problems early.

This is what the jungle path would look like:

  1. Blue Sentinel 
  2. Gromp
  3. Wolves
  4. Raptors
  5. Red Brambleback
  6. Krugs

Below is a beginner's guide I did for jungle in Wild Rift. It goes in-depth about every jungle camp. Epic monsters and more!:

Late Game


Amumu is a great team fight champion in the late game. Amumu wants to stay with his team at all times as he has great abilities to help the team. As a jungler, your main objective is to keep track of when Dragon's, Rift Herald, and Baron spawn. Taking these epic monsters will give you and your team an advantage in the game. When a team fight happens Amumu is great at being in the front line protecting his team. Amumu is a tank that has a lot of crowd control and as mentioned before a great ability called Curse Of The Sad Mummy (Ultimate) that can change a team fight.

Conclusion


Overall Amumu is a great starter champion if you want to play jungle! He has some easy abilities that you can learn straight away and you can have a big impact on the game with his abilities and playstyle.
