LoL Wild Rift: Malphite Top Build Guide

Just picked up Malphite on Wild Rift and need a few pointers on how to play him? Read our guide on the Shard of the Monolith and you'll be a master of the top lane in no time!


Grasp of the Undying

Gathering Storm


Manaflow Band

With Malphite, you should see your laning phase go relatively smoothly. Your goal in the top lane should be to wait and build up your armour and health. This gameplan makes Grasp of the Undying an excellent choice as it offers you additional health if you manage to trade with your opponent consistently.

Gathering Storm provides you with a bit of added scaling, which is always welcome since you'll rarely ever make any significant moves before you get your ultimate.

Conditioning offers you +8 armour after 5 minutes of in-game time has elapsed. Most of Malphite's spells scale with your armour, making this always a great choice!

Finally, it's very easy to consistently trigger Manaflow Band with your Seismic Shard since it's a targeted spell.


Here's the best skill order for Malphite. Rank up your abilities in the order outlined below, however be sure to always rank up your ultimate whenever it's available to you.

Tips and Tricks

  • Malphite is one of few champions that can completely turn around a fight with a well placed ultimate. Be sure to use Unstoppable Force with careful consideration, preferably on the squishy targets on the enemy team.
  • Malphite is a nightmare for enemy teams short on AP champions. This champ is an excellent pick against full-ad compositions, since his armour scales so well.
