How to play Dr Mundo


Dr Mundo is a Baron Lane Tank that loves to get in the enemy's faces and take a lot of damage. Dr Mundo excels against magic damage dealers and he can become nearly immortal because of all of his healing. He is incredibly tanky and has great sustain which helps him a lot, especially during the late game team fights. Dr Mundo does have a weak early game and can struggle a bit but as long as you can farm and get a few items then he can become really strong.


Dr Mundo can also be played in the jungle, make sure to check the alternative build at the top of the page! With Dr Mundo jungle the build is pretty much the same but the runes are very different.

Dr Mundo's Abilities


Goes Where He Pleases (Passive)

Dr Mundo resists the first immobilizing effect, losing some current health instead and dropping a Chemical Canister nearby. Retrieving the canister reduced the cooldown by a few seconds and heals Dr Mundo.
If an enemy champion walks over the Canister before you reach it they will destroy it instead.
This makes Dr Mundo hard to deal with. You can walk forward with confidence when the passive is available knowing that you can't be hit by any Crowd Control.

Infected Bonesaw (1)

Dr Mundo throws his Bonesaw, dealing magic damage and slowing them for a few seconds. Since Dr Mundo's abilities use health and not mana, you can use this ability as much as you want whilst farming the jungle to help with your clear speed.

When laning with Dr Mundo, you need to be a little bit more careful as if you miss the Bonesaw you will be losing health each time.

Heart Zapper (2)

Dr Mundo Charges a defibrillator for a few seconds, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies.
When you recast the ability Dr Mundo detonates the defibrillator, dealing magic damage. If the detonation damaged an enemy, Dr Mundo heals a percentage of the damage taken during Heart Zapper's duration.

It's important to use this ability whilst you are in the middle of a teamfight or farming minions/monsters because you do damage over time to nearby enemies and a percentage of damage taken will be healed back so you don't have to worry about taking a lot of damage.

Blunt Force Trauma (3)

This ability has a Passive and an Active effect.
The Passive is Dr Mundo gains Attack Damage based on his missing health which works well in combination with Heart Zapper (2nd Ability).

The Active is Dr Mundo Empowers his next attack to deal additional physical damage. If Dr Mundo kills that target he swats the target away, dealing the same to enemies. This works well as a poking tool in the laning phase since you can hit both minions and the enemy champion when lined up correctly.

Maximum Dosage (Ultimate)

This ability is what makes it so difficult to kill Dr Mundo. He increases his base health by a % of missing health. He also gains attack damage and movement speed for a few seconds and heals a percentage of his maximum health over the duration. Most of the time you want to wait until you are low on health before you use the ultimate so you can health back to full health really easily.

Dr Mundo Build Breakdown


Sunfire Aegis
Warmog's Armor
Spirit Visage
Thornmail
Randuin's Omen
Plated Steelcaps - Gargoyle

Dr Mundo is known as a solo front-line tank that can survive a lot of damage and that reflects in his build. Sunfire Aegis is a perfect first item for Mundo. It gives you a bunch of health that you need and does damage to nearby enemy champions and/or monsters. Most of the time Mundo will be in the face of the enemy using Burning Agony to deal area of effect damage around him. Spirit Visage is also a crucial item for Dr Mundo! Not only does it give him more health and health regeneration but it increases all healing and regen on yourself. This works well with Dr Mundo's ultimate, Sadism, this ability heals Dr Mundo over time.


For runes we have:

Grasp of the Undying

The best rune for Dr Mundo. He can deal extra damage, depending on the % of his health. In addition, he can stack a lot of health and heal every time Grasp of the Undying is available.

Triumph

When Dr Mundo gets a champion takedown he restores a % of his health (which is normally a lot) and he deals a % more damage to enemies that are low on health.

Second Wind

Second Wind helps Dr Mundo during the laning phase which is the part of the game he struggles with the most.

Demolish

Demolish works well with champions that love to push towers and build maximum health like Dr Mundo. Demolish helps you push and destroy towers very quickly which can give you and your team a huge advantage.

Flash
Ignite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for that killing blow. The go-to 2nd spell is Ignite. This helps Dr Mundo to get an early advantage.

Early Game


Dr Mundo has a weak early game and can't do too much to get an advantage. He is squishy and he doesn't have the defences up yet to be able to take trades. The best thing you can do is play passive and farm up as much as possible until you get a few levels and items. Use Infected Bonesaw (1st Ability) at range when you are low on health to farm minions. When he gets a few items and levels you can start to look for small trades and move back so you can heal over time.

Late Game


Dr Mundo is a great team fight champion in the late game. You want to stay with your team at all times and try not to get caught out by yourself. When a team fight happens you want to make sure you are at the front protecting your team. Dr Mundo is a tank that has a lot of health and a lot of armor and magic resistance to survive a long time against the enemy team.

Conclusion


Overall Dr Mundo has a very easy kit that is very good for people just starting to play Wild Rift. If you want to be a tank and be able to run around the enemy team and take little to no damage then Dr Mundo is the right champion for you.
