Good, tanky, champs with plenty of CC which aren't banned constantly?

#1Gun SagePosted 11/25/2012 6:04:18 PM
Usually for a tanky champ I may play Mundo or Skarner, getting grievous wounds on mundo then running away till they're off, then coming back in. Skarner I just Q constantly for perma slow and attempt to ult the enemy ADC and drag them out of position. Problem is, even with sheen, merc/tabi, aegis, randuin's, shurelya's, and a force of nature or wits end, I melt pretty quick.


What are some other strong champs with great CC and natural tankiness?

I like Malphite, Alistar, and Amumu... but guess what? Yep... I had thought Rammus but he's expected to jungle, and his farm speed seems pretty awful.

Nautilus was another one I had been looking at, alongside Galio. Maokai was also a prime choice, though I'd kind of wanted a little more team-CC.


Any other suggestions?

If they need to be a jungler, try Udyr. No range but he can definitely CC people, be a tank, and just be annoying to face in general.

If not, they try Leona. Basically everything you want.

the only thing I can think of that can melt this is an over fed malz that you let yourself get blasted by his entire combo and a DFG.

Nautilus and Rammus? Naut can't carry well late-game though.

Only Randuin as armor item so any late game AD carry.

Well, even with this full build I've had Vayne's 5-6 shot me, + the rest of the team...


A lot of the time it works fine, but there's several teams out there that skarner isn't quite tanky enough to take on, and when I get focused down that's usually the end of me.


On the other hand, I've seen other tanky champs 1v5 the enemy team and have half health after all the cooldowns are blown.

Solution, don't let Vayne get a full build
