  • Biography
A massive creature of living stone, Malphite struggles to impose blessed order on a chaotic world. Birthed as a servitor-shard to an otherworldly obelisk known as the Monolith, he used his tremendous elemental strength to maintain and protect his progenitor, but ultimately failed. The only survivor of the destruction that followed, Malphite now endures Runeterra's soft folk and their fluid temperaments, while struggling to find a new role worthy of the last of his kind.
Beware, minions of chaos! The Shard of the Monolith has come.

Patch History

v8.7

Attack damage growth increased. E ratio increased. R cooldown decreased.

Malphite is definitely a sedimentary rock champion: He has layers. Some players build him tanky, others build ability power, and some even build Trinity Force. At the moment he's underperforming, and we're looking to give him power that suits all of his builds.

Base Stats

ATTACK DAMAGE GROWTH : [3.375] 4

Ground Slam.png E - Ground Slam

RATIO : [0.20] 0.60 ability power

Unstoppable Force.png R - Unstoppable Force

COOLDOWN : [130/115/100]
130/105/80


v7.22

BASE ARMOR : [28.30] 37
BONUS ATTACK SPEED AT LEVEL 1 : +15%


v7.19
W passive bonus armor is now tripled when Granite Shield is active.

Malphite is falling a tad short in his role as an anti-physical tank, so we want to give him the opportunity to play his strengths in a way that's tied to his identity. Now, there's an opportunity for Malphite to play around his passive more often, as items like Thornmail and Iceborn Gauntlet get even more powerful when his passive is up. This will also give his opponents something to pay attention to when playing against him. #Counterplay

Brutal Strikes.png W - Brutal Strikes

BRUTAL GRANITE Brutal Strikes’s passive armor is now tripled while Granite Shield is active
PASSIVE ARMOR : [15/20/25/30/35]
10/15/20/25/30 percent armor


v7.11
E armor ratio up.

Sunfire Cape followup buff!

Ground Slam.png E - Ground Slam

RATIO : [0.3] 0.4 armor


v6.17
W cooldown decreased. W gives more armor, and scales better with armor as well.

One of League’s iconic frontliners, Malphite’s best known for translating his consistent laning into rock-solid teamfighting. In recent patches though, Malphite finds himself being slapped around harder than you’d expect, even against the physical-damage foes he’s meant to excel against. We’re amping the rock man’s ability to fend off would-be oppressors and clap back against cleaver-lovers everywhere.

Brutal Strikes.png W - Brutal Strikes

COOLDOWN : [14 seconds] 12 seconds
BONUS ARMOR : [10/15/20/25/30%] 15/20/35/30/35%
ACTIVE DAMAGE RATIO : [0.1 bonus armor] 0.15 bonus armor


v6.4
Health regen and E damage down.

Thanks to a mixture of preseason goodies (here's looking at you, Grasp), Malphite's putting up rock-solid performances across the board. Given Malphite's reliable lategame as a terrifying initiator, we're softening his laning phase to provide an opportunity to break up his consistency in getting there. Malphite may always be an unstoppable force, but playing against him shouldn't feel like you're caught between a rock and a hard place.

General

BASE HEALTH REGEN : [8.374] 7

Ground Slam.png E - Ground Slam

BASE DAMAGE : [60/100/140/180/220] 60/95/130/165/200


v5.12
W's base damage is less, but scales with Armor and hits a larger area-of-effect.

"Like we said in our 5.11 notes, Malphite's changes to Brutal Strikes were all about getting the it to occupy a better space in his overall pattern. Now that he's successfully rock-slapping folks, we're briefly revisiting the ability's tuning to get it just right - specifically, reinforcing his Armor purchases and making you feel better about clobberin' minion waves and teamfights alike."
  • Brutal Strikes.png W - Brutal Strikes
    • DAMAGE : 25/40/55/70/85 (+0.15 ability power) 15/30/45/60/75 (+.1 ability power) + (.1 total armor)
    • SPLASH AREA : 200 225
    • STEALTH ROCKS : Fixed a bug where Brutal Strikes could be seen through Fog of War

v5.11
W reworked to give armor passively, activate to rock-slap people.

"These changes for Malphite are all about 'Play Pattern', which is to say the style in which a champion executes their abilities in the game. Malphite's kind of a one-trick-pony - after using Unstoppable Force and getting in your grill, he quickly runs out of things to do and finds himself waiting for cooldowns (and hoping you can't escape or kill him as he does it). We're changing Brutal Strikes to be a more satisfying button press and help him have something to do to kill the time. We're aware that AP Malphite's been popping up somewhat recently, and while build diversity is sometimes neat, we're more interested in what this does for Malphite's flexibility in playstyle. We'll iron out the scaling as necessary, but the idea is giving the ol' rolling stone a rock solid game-plan when his basic spells don't get the job done."
  • Brutal Strikes.png W - Brutal Strikes
    • PASSIVE : Basic attacks deal 30/38/46/54/62% attack damage to nearby enemies Malphite gains 10/15/20/25/30% additional armor
    • ACTIVE : Malphite gains armor and attack damage Basic attacks deal an additional 25/40/55/70/85 (+0.15 ability power) physical damage to the target and nearby units
    • CLARITY SLAP : Brutal Strikes now displays a visual effect that indicates the effective area
    • CLOBBERIN' TIME : Basic attacks while Brutal Strikes is active now use Malphite's critical strike animation

v5.1

"We're making readability improvements to a bunch of the champion portrait icons which were added or updated over the past few months."
  • PORTRAITS : The following champion portrait icons have been updated:
    • Azir, Cho'Gath, Ezreal, Gragas, Graves, Janna, Jarvan IV, Kayle, Kog'Maw, Lee Sin, Malphite, Maokai, Orianna, Renekton, Rengar, Rumble, Shyvana, Sion, Talon, Tristana, Udyr, Vayne, Veigar, Viktor, Zilean

v4.21
Mass Texture Rebalance (Part 4)

"We're continuing our comprehensive pass at the game's older character textures. As with parts 1, 2 and 3, our goal is to improve parity with newer releases and make sure everybody looks at home on the newly-updated Rift. Is anyone even reading this paragraph anymore? "
  • TEXTURES : The following textures have been updated:
  • MalphiteSquare.png Malphite
    • Base, Coral Reef, Marble, Obsidian, Shamrock
  • MalzaharSquare.png Malzahar
    • Base, Djinn, Overlord, Shadow Prince, Vizier
    • ShenSquare.png Shen
    • Base, Blood Moon, Frozen, Surgeon, Warlord, Yellow Jacket
  • WukongSquare.png Wukong
    • Base, General, Jade Dragon, Volcanic
  • Xin ZhaoSquare.png Xin Zhao
    • Base, Commando, Imperial, Viscero, Winged Hussar

v4.7
Granite Shield now recharges faster at later levels, and Brutal Strikes costs a low amount of mana at all levels.

"We like how Malphite's Granite Shield works for the early laning phase, but it has trouble scaling into the rest of the game. Brutal Strikes was designed to help Malphite trade damage when he's in someone's face, but its higher mana costs weren't allowing it. Similar to Jarvan, Malphite offers a lot of unique team-focused wombo combo power even when he's behind, so we're also giving him some help to compete."
