I like to play as Dr Mundo, stacking health. Its not uncommom for me to reach 6k health. However, there are some champions that have the ability to do damage equal to a percent of your health. I was wondering if i could have a list of these champions so i know who to watch out for. Idealy, i would also like to know what type of damage (physical, magical, true) these abilties do. Also, i do not care if the ability does max health, current health or missing health.

Are you sure you wouldn't prefer a, "How do I combat % health damage?" question? Asking for a simple list of sources doesn't make for a very good question, as it's nothing more than a list. – Raven Dreamer Mar 6 '13 at 18:07
That's not really true though, there's only two items that deal %hp damage, and the blade hardly counts if nobody uses it (referring to the hotfix from yesterday). – Blindy Mar 6 '13 at 20:02
BotRK is still very likely to be a popular item since it is still very strong (I saw multiple blades in every game I've been in since the hotfix). Also, if there is a 6K HP Mundo running around, surely they other team will build BotRK. Anyway, when I play high HP champions, the main champion I worry about is Warwick since his Q is spammable and does %health magic damage. – KAI Mar 6 '13 at 20:08

Missing Irelia, Ahri, and Entropy as sources of true damage. – Sadly Not Mar 6 '13 at 21:49
@SadlyNot Those aren't % health though, just flat true damage. The other answer mentions them, but only because they also pose a threat to tanks. – VanBuzzKill Mar 6 '13 at 21:51
Fair enough, keep them out then :) – Sadly Not Mar 6 '13 at 21:51
is Darius' ult %health? – Paralytic Mar 7 '13 at 17:19
@Paralytic No, it does a base amount of damage that is multiplied by 20% for each stack of Hemorrhage on the target. – VanBuzzKill Mar 7 '13 at 21:09

For champions you have:

  • Dr. Mundo's cleaver deals % current hp as magic damage
  • Elise's toxin deals % current hp as magic damage
  • Elise's bite deals % missing hp as magic damage
  • Kog'Maw's spittle deals % max hp as magic damage
  • Varus's blight deals % max hp as magic damage
  • Vayne's silver bolts deal % maxp hp as true damage
  • Warwick's hungering strike deals % max hp as magic damage

And for items:

  • Blade of the Ruined King's passive deals % max hp as physical damage
  • Deathfire Grasp' active deals % max hp as magic damage

Personally though, from a tank perspective, I'd be more terrified of true damage sources. That's what makes Vayne such a game changing hyper carry in the late game. Ahri and Irelia are also strong tank shredders thanks to their high true damage output.

As you pointed out, true damage is the dangerous part. – Michel Mar 6 '13 at 20:42
Missing at least Blackfire Torch and Liandry's Torment. – Raven Dreamer Mar 6 '13 at 21:33
Missing a few more apparently, Domenick's answer is more complete. – Blindy Mar 7 '13 at 14:54
