Malphite Build

In the current meta, Malphite is built with items for magic power that have the highest win rate.

“Luden’s Echo” is a must-have item. Besides magic power, it also provides Malphite with mana. Malphite needs mana because his skills consume a lot of mana when used. In addition, the passive of “Luden’s Echo” also creates extra damage for 3 targets around. It creates huge damage every time Malphite uses his ultimate to dive into the enemy team.

“Rabadon’s Deathcap” will be the next item I will buy. The reason is that this is a heavy magic item. And when I get this item, it is also the time Malphite starts moving to other lanes to gank. With just one surprise attack combo, I can surely kill the enemy champion who has low health.

At the third item, I will depend on the situation. If the enemy team has many weak tanks, I will buy the item “Awakened Soulstealer”. The good thing about this item is that it reduces the cooldown of other skills by 25% if I kill an enemy champion. Can you imagine how scary Malphite is when he uses his ultimate continuously in combat?

In case the enemy team has many tanks and is stronger than my team. “Crown of the Shattered Queen” will be the item I will buy. The purpose is to increase my durability. When I always stand in the front line or in the middle of the enemy team, I will get 70% damage reduction that will help Malphite escape dangerous situations.

“Infinity Orb” is the fourth item, besides magic power, it also has magic penetration and 20% extra critical damage for enemies with 35% health.

“Morellonomicon” for grievous wounds.

How to play Malphite

Malphite will always be the champion that initiates the attack. Whenever you have the skill “Unstoppable Force”, use it and try to hit as many enemies as possible. The reason Malphite has to initiate the attack is to take advantage of his innate shield. When he has some durability, he can dive into the enemy and create a surprise as well as resist well. Then deal damage with the remaining skills.

I often use “Seismic Shard” to increase movement speed. It can be used to escape or to approach the enemy.

Malphite is quite weak early game so he needs to play safely. When he has a few levels, he can switch to attacking the enemy continuously. When he has the first item, he can go gank other lanes early.

Malphite pros and cons


Good durability. Fits with many team compositions. Has a skill to initiate combat. Creates wombo combo.


Weak when facing champions with good poke ability. Depends on items. Needs to have ultimate to create pressure in team fights.
