“Depending on what build the Malphite is going (Usually Comet AP) you would want to be utilizing bushes to avoid poke, and only poking when you see him use his (Q) to CS as this will slow you, sending the comet down and there is no way to react to this without (W) active and Mercury's Treads. Don't overextend past level 6 nor have your lane shoved in. This is just asking for you to be ganked and locked down by his knock-up burst from his (R), so it's much better to try to keep the lanes even or pushed up towards your tower. Hold onto your flash to avoid his (R) at the last sec takes practice, stasis is an alternative.
“Take Grasp and max W. Pull him and W off cooldown and he can't do much about it. It can be hard to ult him in teamfights because his ult makes him unstoppable and he plays far back until he ults, Just try to engage before he does. ”
“Push malphite in early game as much as possible as it's hard for him to farm under turret early game, Malphite also just has no kill pressure on you early game and bad waveclear so this should be easy, it's hard to kill malphite until you get black cleaver unless he messes up really bad, Also remember you can flash his ultimate. Basically we outscale Malphite really hard because of our passive + black cleaver + conqueror, and you should be able to build up a nice CS lead in laning phase, also Cull can be nice in this matchup since we're trying our hardest to scale in this matchup.”
“Depending on how Malphite builds and his rune setup, this matchup can be easy/free to difficult and annoying. As comet and a mix of tank/AP items is most common, take Doran's Shield/Second Wind into this to outsustain his mana. After he's low on mana, he's very squishy and easy to kill. Try to stun him when he casts his cheese wheel.”
“Build Black Blade Cleaver first to break through his armor.
AP Malphite is easy. Tank Malphite is hell. This is an annoying lane because of his anti burst armor and Q. He also does loads of damage even with no items. I honestly can't wrap my head around the assasin level burst this guy has as a tank. You win most short trades until he finishes Tabi and half an armor item. Then his damage escalates drastically, and you won't be able to win an even trade until you have a Cleaver, and LDR if he only builds armor items. if he goes for an AP build, you can still take him on.”
“My ban. If it is Comet Malphite, take corrupting potions. The only real time that you can take advantage of him is when he is low on mana and before he gets bramble vest. Aside from that you mainly want to just farm the lane. Riposte his Q in laning phase to negate slow and damage. You can get tiamat early to shove waves fast to roam into jg/ mid/ tp”
“Max W, because you give him a lot of damage and counter his R.
“lol. Ok guys breathes If you have a dodge, this matchup is dodge worthy.
Otherise, let me start off by saying you should never try to fight malphite post 6 because you will actually hashinshin smash your keyboard and want to retire from playing Quinn if you try.
Also note that 99.999999% of Malphite players don't actually play malphite at all, and about 60% of malphs you face will actually be first timers! They legit picked malphite to counter your Quinn! OMG! This knowledge means that the Malphite will actually be a useless cannon minion after laning phase if they don't gobble smack you in lane because they are playing a champion that they do not play lol and a champion designed to only counter squishy AD champions. ANY ap champ on your team will destroy malph if he is even/not substantially ahead from laning phase.
Pre 6 is heavily in Quinn's favour, and most Malph's run comet keystone, so if malph Qs you, retaliate with vault so that you can juke his comet with your E when his Q hits you.
Be aggressive early on and try to bait malph's corrupting pots. When his 3 pots are down and he gets low, you can go for an all in if possible because he has no way to really do anything in lane without his ult.
Your goal, if possible, is to accumulate a lead while he doesnt have his R.
Ok, now malph is 6 and you're scared. First, to understand how to effectively play against Malphite post 6, you must first understand what Malphite's Strengths/weaknesses are, and Quinn's strengths/weaknesses for the matchup.
Malphite will hard destroy you post 6 because not only does he do a lot of damage with heavy armour, but he basically sets up a perfect gank for his jungler that you cannot avoid at all if your flash is down.
Quinn's strength is that she has incredible roaming potential.
Malphite's weakness is that his waveclear is kinda mediocre, while Quinn's weakness is that, as an squishy AD marksman, malphite can stack armour with his passive and do incredible damage while you will heal him with your autos.
Understanding this, to effectively beat malphite post 6 is to ROAM ROAM ROAM! I typically never roam early on Quinn, but in Malphite I actually run TP and perma roam post 6 because the lane is death zone if you go there.
Malphite REQUIRES him to gain a lead early game to do anything because, like I said, he picked malphite to legit counter you, and he will not know how the champion works after laning phase.
If malphite goes even in lane, you have accomplished your goal and you will find that his pick will be useless as the game progresses simply because he won't know how to play him/keep up with CS later on.
I find this to be the most effective because not only do you get your team ahead and prevent malphite from killing you, but malphite's poor waveclear means that he likely will not be able to punish your roams as hard as other top laners could. Malphite will be forced to use his TP to counter your roams, and if he doesn't, you can help your bot/mid/jungle get ahead and get objectives while malphite won't be able to push your lane hard enough to punish you for the roam.
Edge of Night with Hexdrinker makes you unkillable btw cuz he needs to pop EON with an ability, and his combo can't kill you through hexdrinker shield and EON shield. If he can't kill you with his R, he is useless afterwards.”
“You win level 1 with full passive, just be carefull with his poke, he can easily kill you for no reason ;D, after level 6 be mindfull, he can kill you, you can try to go for the highlight and dodge his r with your flash or q , but i suggest not, be patient with your ultimate because he can just r away”
“Keep trading with him to prevent his passive shield from coming up. Your sustain with Q and him having none is a big advantage in this matchup.”
