Use of Skills

  • Zaun's Lightning Booster Zaun's Lightning Booster is a powerful debuff that can save your team from a lot of damage. Freely apply it to enemy champions in a fight.
    • Zaun's Lightning Booster Zaun's Lightning Booster makes Urgot is difficult to kill in a 1v1 fight, especially if I buy tank items.
    • Try applying Zaun's Lightning Booster Zaun's Lightning Booster on an enemy carrier in a team fight to reduce their total damage capacity.
  • When killing minions, try to use Acid Hunter Acid Hunter between your auto attacks. In this way you will be more efficient in your work and you will push your lane quickly. If there are no enemies nearby, start to finish off minions with Noxian Corrosive Charge Noxian Corrosive Charge and let the corrosive damage do all its damage while destroying close range minions with your auto attacks and Acid Hunter Acid Hunter.
  • Before casting Acid Hunter Acid Hunter, try hovering over an enemy affected by Noxian Corrosive Charge. Noxian Corrosive Charge. After casting, Acid Hunter Acid Hunter will ignore the other enemies and fly directly at the corroded enemy.
    • A fixed Acid Hunter Acid Hunter has incredible range and can hit enemies even though they are not visible: in a bush, the fog of war, and even in stealth.
    • Acid Hunter Acid Hunter can hit through walls, dealing surprise damage.
    • Acid Hunter Acid Hunter has good range and deals good damage to unarmored targets. Learning to use this ability even when Noxian Corrosive Charge is not applied, helps you break the rhythm of your opponents and allows you to remain a threat even when the corrosion lockdown has expired.
  • The blue upgrade will drastically improve the fighting ability of Urgot's, since the mana regeneration allows a constant cast of Acid Hunter Acid Hunter and the cooldown reduction allows to cast Noxian Corrosive Charge Noxian Corrosive Charge more frequently.
  • You will only slow enemies when your shield remains active, so consider putting more levels on the Terrifying Capacitor Terrifying Capacitor to provide Urgot with a disabling slow.
  • Using the Terrifying Capacitor Terrifying Capacitor in conjunction with the Acid Hunter Acid Hunter allows a quick way to chase down escaping enemies or slow down those who are chasing you.
  • Noxian Corrosive Charge Noxian Corrosive Charge reveals the fog of war. Use it to explore safely.
  • The Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter should be used to put your enemies under your tower or aid in an ambush, but it can also be used to escape if your path is blocked by an enemy.
    • When you find yourself near an easy target of the enemy team, use the Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter to launch it into the middle of your own team for an easy kill.
    • Remember that although the Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter gives you armor and magic resistance, you are not invincible. Be aware that nearby enemy towers or units can kill you before channeling ends.
    • The Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter suppresses the enemy while channeling them, so it can be used to slow the enemy's escape or kill one. It can also be used to slow down other channelable spells like Loto Mortal de Katarina.
  • The Skill Kit Urgot makes it very effective at taking out the enemy team's carriers, but don't underestimate its toughness. In general, it's a good idea to stay away from high-damage champions until they are further weakened or separated.
  • The Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter Hyperkinetic Positional Reverter of Urgot can be used through walls to lure enemies through. That can be used both offensively and defensively when you're being chased, ambushed in the jungle, or caught in a tag team fight.
  • Urgot is very good at harassing in the lane. Use its high range and considerable area damage from Noxian Corrosive Charge Noxian Corrosive Charge to weaken enemies while denying them minions.
  • A good strategy to eliminate an enemy champion with Urgot is the one to keep your skills saved for a chase. As your target starts to retreat, use your shield and keep hitting it with auto attacks until the Terrifying Capacitor Terrifying Capacitor disappears and then hits the enemy with Noxian Corrosive Charge Noxian Corrosive Charge and keep throwing as many Acid Hunter Acid Hunter as possible before that escapes your range.
  • Zaun's Lightning Booster damage reduction Zaun's Lightning Booster, Terrifying Capacitor Extra survivability, and Noxian Corrosive Charge armor reduction make it incredibly difficult for your opponents to reduce your strength. Often champions trying to attack Urgot end up taking more damage than they deal. Don't overestimate your opponent's intelligence or you will miss out on valuable opportunities.

Build usage

  • Stacking high amounts of attack damage on Urgot will make his Acid Hunter and basic attacks more powerful.
    • Manamune is a great first item on Urgot since it gives him attack damage and helps solve his mana problems. Later in the game, Muramana provides more damage to his Acid Hunter, especially if Urgot chooses to build more mana with items like Frozen Heart.
    • The Brutalizer is a fantastic early item on Urgot since attack damage, armor penetration, and cooldown reduction are the exact things he needs to increase his damage, which is strongest early/mid game.
    • The Black Cleaver has great synergy with Urgot's Noxian Corrosive Charge because the damage over time ticks will apply The Black Cleaver's armor shred.
    • The Bloodthirster is a good late-game item since life steal is valuable to boost survivability.
    • Other standard attack damage items such as Infinity Edge are not as effective since Urgot's main damage source, Acid Hunter, cannot crit and does not apply on-hit effects.
  • Last Whisper is also a good late-game item if the enemy team is building armor to counter you.
  • Urgot can be mana-hungry in the early laning stage, but buying Tear of the Goddess should eliminate mana problems for the rest of the game. If you decide not to focus your build around picking up the Manamune early, other mana regeneration sources are recommended.
  • Guardian Angel can be an effective defensive item for Urgot as his Terror Capacitor can offer the additional time necessary for a last escape, or give you time for cooldowns to refresh so you can quickly focus down low health enemies who linger nearby.
  • Trinity Force is a strong if unorthodox item on Urgot. Although it does little for your long-range Acid Hunter combo, Trinity Force greatly increases his presence in close combat due to constant Sheen procs.
    • Another unorthodox item late game is Hextech Gunblade, although very effective when combined with Trinity Force. As Urgot has no natural sustain and life steal only benefits him as fast as he can attack, staggering his autos with  Acid Hunter will allow Urgot to maximize his healing (as Acid Hunter benefits from full spell vamp), granting an uninterrupted stream of healing, while the Ability Power granted adds slight bonuses to his Terror Capacitor.
  • Attack damage items are worth buying for the early phase of the game; however, due to the risk of using his ultimate in lategame, it is recommended to build some survivability items afterwards.
  • Cooldown reduction can let Urgot fire more locked-on Acid Hunters before the Noxian Corrosive Charge debuff fades. With no CDR, he can fire 3 shots per lock on. With 16.7% CDR, he can fire 4. With 37.5% CDR, he can fire 5. However, the above values are mathematical and do not take into account input lag or delay.
    • In practice, 40% cooldown reduction makes it easy to shoot 5  Acid Hunters per Noxian Corrosive Charge. A combination of CDR masteries and items can help you hit this figure. Some choices that synergize well with Urgot include The Brutalizer, Ionian Boots of Lucidity, and Iceborn Gauntlet/ Frozen Heart.
    • The Crest of the Ancient Golem Crest of the Ancient Golem will greatly help Urgot if he can secure it.
    • If you choose to not upgrade The Brutalizer, chances are you will sell it in favor of Last Whisper later. An Elixir of Brilliance is a great substitute for the CDR loss.
    • Cooldown reduction is invaluable for Urgot's other skills as well, granting more temporary durability through Terror Capacitor and a longer debuff uptime for Noxian Corrosive Charge.
  • Glacial Shroud is an effective mid game item for Urgot as its armor helps him fight physical damage champions, while the mana and cooldown reduction help him spam his Acid Hunter and adds to the damage from Manamune. Frozen Heart is also effective for the same purpose.
  • The Iceborn Gauntlet gives Urgot the best of both Glacial Shroud's mana and cooldown reduction and Sheen's procs, while also giving Urgot some AoE damage and a way to almost permanently slow a close enemy champion.
  • A few items, ( Maw of Malmortius and Atma's Impaler), that add both attack damage and resistance can complement Urgot's damage output with improved survivability. An early Hexdrinker is great because in addition to improving Urgot all around, it can later be upgraded into Maw of Malmortius.
  • Furor is a strong upgrade for Urgot's boots as his Acid Hunter hits will proc its speed increase. This allows him to kite and chase enemies very well.

Countering

  • Urgot does only physical damage, so getting armor items is effective in mitigating his DPS.
  • Move erratically to avoid being hit by Noxian Corrosive Charge thus preventing lock-on with Acid Hunter. Experienced players will often wait for you to move into position for an attack or minion kill. Use feints to cause them to misfire.
  • Champions with gap closing abilities can combat Urgot effectively by staying within close range and timing their dash to coincide with his Noxian Corrosive Charge.
  • Urgot lacks mobility and is vulnerable to champions with good DPS, especially those with frequent disables or items such as Frozen Mallet.
  • Avoid committing to a close quarters 1v1 battle with Urgot unless you are certain of an overwhelming victory. His abilities make it difficult to escape a losing battle.
  • Urgot tends to be rather predictable, in that whenever he lands a Noxian Corrosive Charge, he will almost always chase the target in order to land his full combo. This can be easily exploited to bait him into overextending for a gank.
    • Keep in mind, however, that after Urgot reaches level 6, Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser can allow for an easy escape by switching places with the ganking champion. Either make sure the ganking champion has a way to block or break the suppress, or be prepared to interrupt the channel. If he is unable to use his ultimate to escape, Urgot is usually a relatively easy kill.
  • Be mindful of Urgot's ultimate, as you or your team can quickly be pulled into danger. Prevent this by having spell block/cancel items such as Banshee's Veil or Quicksilver Sash.
    • But remember that Banshee's Veil block only one ability, he can easily pop the shield with Noxian Corrosive Charge or Acid Hunter, especially if you are going to engage him without anything between you and him
    • Although Quicksilver Sash will remove the suppression from Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser, you will still swap positions with him. After removing the suppression, run towards your team to put Urgot in an unfavorable position.
