IntroductionI'm Unorthodox Tactics, and this is my guide to the most beautiful character in the game.
There may be those of you thinking "This guy is retarded"
YOU HAVEN'T SEEN HOW WONDERFUL JUNGLE MUNDO IS.
MUNDO JUNGLES AS HE PLEASES.
But seriously now, Mundo has a small CC on his (slow) and his cleaver does a fair amount of damage and this lets him gank lanes as he pleases. Just remember that you're not Udyr, or some other actually viable jungle, meaning that despite all this, your ganks still suck.
MUNDO WAS NEVER WEAK
HE WAS JUST UNDISCOVERED
MasteriesThe reason I've chosen these masteries is because, all in all, Mundo needs defense to be relevant at all.
You may try 21/9/0 or even something like 15/15/0 opting for crit chance. When Mundo has his E activated, those crits hurt.
But if this doesn't work for you, just remember that Mundo can set his masteries as he pleases.
RunesArmor pen runes are great on any AD jungler, in my opinion. You get through most camps armor, but they will make you do less damage with your than with magic pen runes.
It's still more worth it to get armor pen simply because most creatures in the jungle have 0 magic resist, and you can't rely on your cleaver more than your autos.
There's a huge argument over flat armor and scaling armor yellows. Personally, I prefer flat, because Mundo can get pretty low during his first clear or two, but really, it is up to you.
Again, flat or scaling? I prefer scaling on most junglers that use them, because for the first few levels, you aren't taking huge magic damage, and by the time you are, these have usually scaled enough to beat your flats. But again, Mundo can set runes as he pleases, too.
And for Quints, honestly, I have no idea what the best quints would be for Mundo, but that extra AD is always nice.
THE NERFS, THEY DID NOTHING.
But seriously, other than his ult, Mundo has no escapes.
YOU KNOW WHAT. FOR THE REST OF THIS GUIDE, JUST ASSUME I TOLD YOU TO DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU.
Junglers need this. No arguments.
I used to think this was really good with his ult, but one of my friends was saying get a instead, because it also lets you remove healing debuffs, which is huge for his ult.
Good if your team hasn't got enough of them.
JUNGLING ON DOMINION YYYYEEEAAAHH
This is really just your ult that doesn't heal.
Almost as viable as Jungle Mundo himself.
This is the single most viable spell on heroes with no mana.
Passive: Adrenaline Rush
Dr. Mundo regenerates 0.3% of his max health each second.
This lets you not die. The end.
Q: Infected Cleaver
Dr. Mundo hurls his cleaver, dealing damage equal to 15 / 18 / 21 / 23 / 25% of the target's current health (80 / 130 / 180 / 230 / 280 damage minimum) and slowing them by 40% for 2 seconds.
Cooldown 4 seconds
Cost 30 / 50 / 70 / 90 / 110 health
Your only CC and key to good ganks. If you can skill shot, you can actually gank quite well.
W: Burning Agony
Toggle: Dr. Mundo deals 40 / 55 / 70 / 85 / 100 (+20% of ability power) magic damage to nearby enemies, and reduces the duration of crowd control effects on Dr Mundo by 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35%.
Cooldown 4 seconds
Cost 20 / 28 / 35 / 43 / 50 health per second
The only reason I take a point in this at 4, is for the CC reduction. You can use it to help clear camps, but maxing cleaver and masochism is just so much better.
Increases physical damage by 40 / 55 / 70 / 85 / 100 for 5 seconds. Dr. Mundo gains an additional +0.4 / 0.55 / 0.7 / 0.85 / 1 damage for each percentage of health he is missing.
Cooldown 7 seconds
Cost 15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 health
100+ AD BUFF YYYEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAHHH.
The second part of this, is the only thing that makes Mundo jungle successful at all. MAX FIRST. PLEASE.
Dr. Mundo regenerates 50% of his Max Health over 12 seconds. Additionally, he gains 15 / 25 / 35% movement speed.
Cooldown 75 seconds
Cost 20 percent of health
Essentially a big F*CK YOU to the other team. This with Cleanse gets away from anything, pretty much.
Taking a Spirit Visage for this alone is very effective.
Skill Order> > And ult whenever you can get it.
Your E is so strong. It's like, the opposite to Trynd's W.
Cleaver is necessary for ganks.
Spinning circle of mild pain is good for clearing wraiths, but that's about it, seriously.
That's one path you can take, and get huge AD for everything, or you can go like this:
This reason this is good, is because the percentile MAGIC damage from your cleaver, and the fact that the jungle creeps have no MR, mean you'll be doing a lot of damage to the big scary monsters like Red and Blue. It essentially gives you a free smite... Not really.
Again, Masochism next because 100+ AD BUFF WOOOOOOOOO
With this second one, it might be worth it to start at blue, so you can use the cleaver more.
Item BuildsWriggles is still a great item, and very useful for clearing the map of ALL THE MINIONS AND ALL THE CAMPS.
Depending on what you're up against, a Spirit Visage is very strong. I'd math it out for you, but I'm lazy. I recommend getting it (if you get it at all) straight after Wriggles. The only problem with this, is that you will melt faster in team fights, because you don't have that 620 health from Ruby crystal and Belt. But it lets his Passive heal more, his ult heal more, and his cleaver get more refund.
Another thing to consider, is a Quicksilver Sash, as I said before. It's amazing on him now that I've tried it. It lets you do everything you did with Cleanse, and remove healing debuffs too, meaning your lt/cleaver/passive is better.
Mid game, you pretty much build what any tanky bruiser builds, focusing more on health then AD.
Late game, get resistances. And lots of them.
This item is surprisingly strong on Mundo, better then on most other champs. If you ult just before you die, the regen continues in the reviving period, so you end up coming back with about 50-80% of your max health, depending on level.
JunglingSeriously, with the new jungle, you actually can jungle as you please. I usually start Wraiths, then Golems, Wolves, and repeat that, until I hit 4 or so, then I get red and gank if possible. If not, repeat.
This may not be the smartest way to jungle, but it works for me. If you feel getting a leash on red and then clearing with that will help more, then go ahead.
With the second path, Blue would be very helpful, because it lets you spam cleavers through out to clear faster. It's also good one the first path because then your masochism will be on all the time.
Final CommentsThanks for actually reading this far, seriously. Have fun trol- uh, I mean, being viable as f*ck out there.
MUNDO WAS NEVER UNDERPOWERED
HE WAS JUST HOLDING BACK
HE GOES WHERE HE PLEASES
HE HAS A TROLL ULT THAT LETS HIM DO WHAT HE WANTS.
