FAQs About Rammus

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

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.

Why do most people think Rammus is a bad support?

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.
