Playing against Malphite

Key Insights
W
bonus armor is tripled when
P
is active.
W
resets Malphite's auto attack.
Enemies hit by
E
also have their attack speed reduced.
R
's speed is increased by Malphite's bonus movespeed.
Power Spike
Naturally counters AD champions and scales directly with how much Armor he has.
Q
counters champions with movespeed boosts, taking a chunk of the movespeed for himself.
His gank assist and teamfighting become much stronger after unlocking
R
.
A well-positioned
R
can singlehandedly win a teamfight.
Synergizes well with
Sunfire Aegis
,
Randuin's Omen
,
Force of Nature
,
Gargoyle Stoneplate
, and
Frozen Heart
. Can opt for
Frostfire Gauntlet
for better lockdown.
Vulnerable
Struggles against magic damage-heavy compositions.
Immobile (outside of using
R
to escape), leaving him vulnerable to ganks.
Forcing Malphite to use
R
defensively lowers his teamfighting potential since he won't have any playmaking capabilities.
