DH5: 045 -Amumu, The Sad Mummy
Crabthief fridays and the 45th DH5 together at last!
Better bulk up and strap on those merc treads! It's that bawling brawler Amumu! Totally ready to wrap up your whole team in a bandage bombardment!
Amumu is another character that relies a lot on the look of his abilities in order to stay interesting. His appearance is after all just a small character wrapped in green bandages with yellow eyes. Amumu's spells look pretty cool, I'm a fan of his tantrum and despair graphics and when his big yellow cataclysmic ultimate drops you definitely know that your dealing with a pint-sized powerhouse. I suppose that it's a nice balance and lets yo appreciate the effects of the spells on top of a simple character. I've always been a big fan of the more simple designs. Looks like Crabthief got a little personal on this one and has truly upset the small mummy! what a jerk!
In game Amumu can be a real beast. a jungler that can hook shot his way right to an enemy and unleash a team destroying ultimate that turns off everybody in a pretty large radius. Lane Amumu's are a little less crafty and can sometimes be out zoned and harassed. Having a tanky Amumu on your team is usually a lot of fun as you can plan some really big team fights knowing that 2-3 of their champions might not even be able to participate after the mummy unleashes his curse. Anyone a fan of this tiny tank? Bandage toss out some comments and keep that crying crusher zoned!
