Wild Rift Amumu Gameplay Tips and Tricks

Early Game:

Amumu’s early game is pretty weak against junglers like Olaf, Lee sin, and Jarvan IV. So, in the early game, just focus on farming and get items as early as possible. In Wild Rift, Amumu is a team fight monster with his ultimate, so try to avoid 1 v1 with enemy jungler and help your team in a team fight.

Amumu Jungle clear Path (Recommended):

  1. Red Buff
  2. Raptors
  3. Wolves
  4. Blue Buff
  5. Scuttler

You can also start from your Blue buff if you want.

Mid Game: 

Mid Game is the time where Amumu shines. In Mid-game, try to secure important objectives like dragons and baron with your team. If the enemy is taking an objective, you can use flash and ult combo to steal the objective. You can also use flash and ult combo to initiate a team fight (just make sure your teammates are nearby so they can follow up).

Late game: 

In the Late game, Amumu can one-shot enemies squishy targets. Amumu’s main power relies on his ultimate, so try to play around it, which means engage or initiate a team fight if you have your ultimate and avoid them if you don’t. In the late game, only use your ultimate in team fights for important objectives or unless it is necessary as Amumu becomes vulnerable to gank when he does not have his ultimate so use it carefully, especially in Late Game.
