Rammus Skins

Rammus Pros

  • Innate tankiness.
  • Extremely strong ganks.
  • High mobility means more ganks.

Rammus Cons

  • Main initiation is through powerball and that will often put you in 1v3/4 situations.
  • Slow clear speed.
  • Easily kited or CC'd by virtue of playstyle (ramming into fools with powerball).
  • Can be counterjungled.

Rammus Counter Tips

  • Try not to target him if he has his Defensive Curl on - as he will take much less damage, and he'll also return some damage back to you.
  • Try to stand amongst creeps to avoid getting knocked-back by Rammus's Powerball.
  • Most Rammus players build heavy armor. This will make him vulnerable to AP damage.
  • Taking cleanse or buying a Quicksilver Sash will let you immediately cure his taunt.

Rammus DEV INFO

  • Rammus was designed by Guinsoo, Ezreal and Coronach.
  • Rammus' voice over is provided by Duncan Watt, who also voices Blitzcrank and has composed much of the music for the game.
  • The title "Armordillo" is a play on the words "Armor" and "Armadillo" - "Armadillo" is Spanish for "little armored one".
  • The name "Rammus" may be a homophone or pun of a combination of the words "Ram" and "Us".

RAMMUS STORY

The mysteries that surround Rammus are numerous. How did a simple creature of the desert suddenly become able to reason? How did he craft his vaunted suit of armor? What is he searching for as he crosses the Shuriman desert? One thing is for certain: trying to stop the inexorable Rammus is a fool’s mission.
