Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is my first build and i'm not an english native speaker so please be kind ^^
I play morgana from the beginning as my main character, i have played her for hundreds of games and tried a lot of variations. This one is actually my favorite. The stats here are a little outdated. I think i have a little more AP and speed than this.
I might complete this guide later, for now i will focus on writing stuff i didn't saw in the other guides.
As all Morgana's skills, this one can be used in a lot of very usefull ways. Use it to escape and slowdown your opponent, to prevent him from fleeing, to win some extra seconds to destroy a tower (while blocking an enemy backing up). It can cross any physical obstable (tree, rock,...), to harass the enemy, to launch an attack, or in late game against low health character to just make disapear half of their health in one single shot (like when they are all five waiting for a team fight).
This one is your farming ability. It allows you to destroy a full wave of minions with just one shot quite soon in the game, just after your 'Needlessly Large Rod'. Use it to kill an opponent who try to flee with low health.
The back shield is not enaf used by newcomers. Use it an abuse. It helps reducing damages, debuff your character from malevolent spells, and will save your life to escape some enemy's skills (like malzahar ult or amumu's grip). Don't forget to configure your keyboard like this:
'e' : use the black shield on yourself
't' : to aim a friend with the black shield.
This means than in just pulling 'e', you gain immediate protection. This will allow you to gain an extra second witch is very helpfull.
This is your ultimate. With my guide you will have Zhonia hourglass in 15-20 minutes. Witch means you can early provoke a team fight at the place of the tank. Here is the sequence:
Stun - flash in - Ultimate - Zhonia's hourglass - Tourmented soil - Stun. It will deal massive damage to all and you will not die because Zhonia will give you 2 secondes invincibility, witch is a must have for your ulti. If your team follows you (and they will to try to KS :p) you will be safe. Later in the game it can be better to let the tank begin the fight tough (around level 15-18).
I will not do like a lot of people and just describe what i think about all of them.This is a guide of my way to play morgana afterall. And there's to me just one best set up.
Take Teleport and Flash. Why these?
- your ulti can be useless if you can't come close enaf to the other group to use it. The enemies will focus you too if they see you too close. You can only use Zhonia AFTER your ultimate. Flash will help you to do that : you can win a little distance that is required to hit 2 or 3 more opponents.
Teleport will help you in a lot ways and is of course a must have too. If you are middle, you can go back to base after a kill to buy and be back in a short breath. You can harass better your enemies because you don't care if you are low on mana because you can heal in no time at your base too. It will help you to farm faster, defend the tower, gank (just teleport on a ward or on some character's abilities like Teemo's mushroom) you can teleport in the grass in no time and gank faster than anyone with this. You can also try to gank and be back at your tower between 2 minion's waves.
Just take these two. People like ignite too much. With teleport, harass again, teleport to heal and finish him. If the enemies go away with 50hp, he's not lucky, you just have to admit you failed, you attacked to early, harass more before.
I didn't wrote everything i would like too but i will continue probably later. With this you have a good overview of my way to play morgana. Enjoy!
