Abilities

Passive: Granite Shield
Malphite is shielded by a layer of rock which absorbs damage up to 10% of his maximum Health. If Malphite has not been hit for 10 seconds, this effect recharges.

Q: Seismic Shard
Using his primal elemental magic, Malphite sends a shard of the earth through the ground at his foe, dealing damage upon impact and stealing Movement Speed for 4 seconds.

W: Brutal Strikes
Malphite starts to hit with such force that his attacks deal damage to all units in front of him. Passively increases his Armor (this amount is tripled while Granite Shield is active).

E: Ground Slam
Malphite slams the ground, sending out a shockwave that deals magic damage based on his Armor as damage and reduces the Attack Speed of enemies for a short duration.

R: Unstoppable Force
Malphite ferociously charges to a location, damaging enemies and knocking them into the air.

Ally Tips

  • Armor naturally reduces the rate that attacks go through Granite Shield, so Brutal Strikes will strengthen the shield against physical damage.

  • Despite his abilities scaling on Armor, some games require Malphite to get Magic Resist. When those games occur, try getting Aegis of the Legion, Mercury's Treads, and Guardian Angel.

Opponent Tips

  • If you're a physical damage character stay behind your allies when fighting Malphite. Ground Slam can significantly reduce your damage output.

  • Malphite is one of a couple tanks who are capable of jungling. Watch out if he gets Smite.

Lore

A massive creature of living stone, Malphite struggles to impose blessed order on a chaotic world. Birthed as a servitor-shard to an otherworldly obelisk known as the Monolith, he used his tremendous elemental strength to maintain and protect his progenitor, but ultimately failed. The only survivor of the destruction that followed, Malphite now endures Runeterra's soft folk and their fluid temperaments, while struggling to find a new role worthy of the last of his kind.
