Rammus FAQs

Q: What are the strengths and weaknesses of Rammus in League of Legends?

A: Rammus is a very mobile champion when he is in his Powerball form. When he is further augmented with a good Rammus build, he is likely the fastest and most mobile champion in the match. Additionally, Rammus has a powerful and long duration taunt. Not only can he taunt enemies, but he can also reflect damage back to his target with each hit. This reflected damage scales with armor, so add extra armor into your Rammus build to maximize the effect. Rammus' greatest weakness is that it's relatively easy to hide or dodge his Powerball. If Rammus misses, he'll need to reset, assuming he lives to do so.

Q: Why do most people think Rammus is a bad support?

A: While Rammus builds tanky items and has good CC like many other supports, he has no range and his engage can easily be blocked by minions in lane. Due to his mobility, he's much better when played as a jungle champion.

Additional Rammus Build Insights

LoL Rammus players will find him to be a challenging champion to build out properly. You'll find that his build varies when he is up against either diversified or highly focused team comps, meaning you should not follow the same Rammus build every game of League of Legends

The most essential items to incorporate into your champion's build are: Sunfire Aegis, Gargoyle Stoneplate, and Dead Man's Plate. Players who added these items in their gear had a significantly better winrate than players who worked towards other item builds for Rammus. Likewise, if you are trying to beat a mixed enemy team comp, you should really consider grabbing him the Resolve, and Precision runes. In recent games, he won the greatest percentage of his matches when equipped with these runes.

We established our Rammus build guidance by analyzing 45,366 recently ranked League of Legends rounds with him in them. We only recommend the top winrate Rammus builds that have been used by ranked League players enough times for us to propose them. With so many matches in our data, we are very confident in our recommended builds.
