Tips For Playing Against Amumu
- Be sure not to group up when Amumu has his AOE CC ultimate. More than likely, his summoner will go all in with his Q with his W activated. Root everyone with his ult and use his E to deal more damage.
- Use ranged attacks to kite Amumu while you try to avoid all of his AoE Damage.
- If you can, invade his jungle and steal his blue buff, Amumu consumes a lot of mana while clearing at early levels, so he won’t have enough mana to gank or farm.
- Ward well to avoid Amumu’s ganks. If you can dodge his Q, the bandage toss is his gap closer, he has no way of effectively ganking.
