Question on a Rammus build

#1NYGFan2008Posted 4/20/2013 2:37:14 AM(edited)
I remember playing against a player one time who was Rammus. Rather than going full tank or whatnot, he had Thornmail+Randuin Omen and then 3 attack items that have damage+attack speed. Now, this build easily took down any single target but was ultimately useless during the team fights. But the damage output was insane as he'd take down any champ before the taunt finished.

Is this a viable build if you can use it and end a match before late game?

Was he jungling? And it would depend in team comp. if you had say a garen voli or nasus that could tank effectively I'd say why not.

Yeah, he was jungling. He started 2-0 so he went with that build instead rather than the normal tanky one.

Could probably do better without thornmail I would think.

I mean if it worked I can't really fault him for it. It's like going for 2 points in football if it works you're a hero if it doesn't you're reported for feeding.

Back when it existed, I used to get Madred's on Rammus and wreck face.

Thornmail, Sunfire Cape, Randuins, Atmas, Madreds, Boots of Choice, and I was a wrecking ball of damage and tankiness.
