Tips Against Malphite in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Baby_Driver says “Second wind with demolish is great. Black cleaver first is amazing. Whenever he tries to Q you, there is a small window when u can pull him in - abuse that. Keep in mind that he can always use his ult to escape so keep track of that.”
Baby Driver's Guide to Darius (The God-King) by Baby_Driver | Darius Player
DioSett says “take grasp and max w , take tp and doran blade , just focus on farm and buy first item black cleaver”

Hotch says “Kindof a weird matchup. Don't be afraid to tank his Q's because he'll run out of mana before you run out of health. Then its EZ. His lvl 6 is pretty scary so avoid diving or poking if you know that he has ult. Honestly, avoid being under his tower when he has ult because your maiden/ghouls will auto aggro him if he fights you which means you take turret aggro so it's an instant lose. Take flash.”

KingJoeyy says “you completely counter malphite the only wave he doesn't die is if he ults away from you everytime you R at him LOL. but then you can try to tower dive him :p”

forlid says “Not much to do in this lane. You can use W to negate his Q (and Arcane Comet) damage, but other than that, his kit is basically just a full counter against yours. He becomes very valuable late with his R, and if he builds full armor you'll never kill him. Early Terminus is good if their team has more than one tank, but otherwise go BORK. This matchup gets much more difficult in higher elos as Malphites tend to play more with their teams. If he goes Grasp its honestly much easier early as his Q damage is basically equal to your W shield. Your only window to kill him is level 3 and when you finish BORK.”

procatking says “PTA, tp,D shield, take rune NO.1. bro is rock solid... *Really Hard matchup* best you can do to kill him is to poke with max range Q and quick trades with stun. hope for a gank from the gods of jg. after he buys some armor just go roam the map and help your team ”

Witchking of Angwar says “Flash/tp. He wants to build armor so its pretty free. Early he wins with q poke. You need to extend trades beyond his passive shield to win. He can surprisingly burst you lvl 6 if you dont flash or w his ult. Dont r his r. Generally this is free though. Swifties go brr”

NoirDeces says “The only way you can win vs this rock is if you can bait his q and use your q after and then try to 1 shot him with q-ignite-e-r.”
conqiyana says “annoying asf late game. take first strike scale. build lethality and 1 shot backline.”

SenSen_LoL says “Easy, he can't really trade you without wasting tons of mana. You have more sustain than him and will be able to kill him pretty easily. The only thing you should watch out for is his ult.”

Tips Against Malphite in Mid Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Soft Headpats says “This matchup is basically the same as vs Annie but even simpler. His passive shield can be annoying to break, but if you take Aery and continue to harass him you'll eventually whittle him down enough. His gank setup is obviously scary once he hits 6, but as long as you respect where his jungler is, Malphite shouldn't have the damage to solo-kill you unless he's ahead. Similarly to Cho'gath, if he chooses to run a tank build he's even easier to deal with. Make sure you get Liandry's and Cryptbloom if this is the case. ”

Haze 8D says “Malphite is just a lane neutralizer, focus on farm and dont fight him ”
vSomnia says “Can harass you early with Q. After he uses Q go all in and trade. You out shove him once you one shot caster minions. Mid/ late game when you played well you win side lanes aswel. Don't get killed in lane and you win the matchup. HARD Ping his roams.”

gaarrett says “Builds armor. You don't care about armor. Take his ult and blow him up until he realizes this isn't toplane. ”

V0lib34r says “If he ults you without a spell shield its over, otherwise his slow MS makes him burn through his own hp while trying to chase you”
ImVoxxX says “Too much armor, too much dmg. Perfect counter for Talon. Just roam, don't fight him if he's going for a tank build.”

AzkloX says “You can't kill him. Buy Cull. Pick Grasp of the Undying. Scale. Bannable.”
Kennen Guide / AzkloX by AzkloX | Kennen Player
ThelpixG says “It might be difficult early if he takes comet. Otherwise its a pretty free matchup specially if you take the Anti-Tank setup and focus on outscaling him. You have alot of true damage which means you can melt him down with passive resets once you get crit. If your team is full AD just dodge (its over).”
MasterGamer0115 says “a rare pick in the mid lane but a notable one. Malphite with his high base armor makes trades against him a lot weaker, along with most Malphite mid players building AP he can consistently Trade back for a good amount of damage making any trade against him go Even or in his favor. you need to establish an early lead against him, once he hits level 6 he is an Extreme threat of going all in and doing massive damage. ”

Halkem says “You melt him, have perma prio and kill potential. It's just a good matchup. Just care because he one shots you, so don't space badly and value your passive.”
