Introduction

Here we have an AP(Ability Power) Maokai guide. Now I want to start off saying that whoever thinks he cant get kills and still be a very good team player is crazy! Two builds are here, the first being AP and the second tank, This guide is mainly devoted to AP Maokai, but can still be used for tank Maokai. Hopefully this guide will help you show up every team you play against. Have fun reading and goodluck!


P.S. The void staff will not be needed if the group your facing isn't tank heavy, so fill it with Deathfire Grasp.

Pros / Cons

PROS:His "E" is a excellent wear and tear ability. He is a bangin' support. Hard to kill. Excellent solo lane.

CONS: Kind of high cooldowns. "e" is very dodgable.

Runes

Now these runes will help you the most, the spell pen is nice for enemy magic resist. The cooldown runes are a necessity to the build due to some what high cooldowns. The health runes and Quintessences are great for early game, making you almost unkillable up until level 6.

Masteries

The masteries shown are set up perfectly so that you can your cooldowns will be as low as possible and that you can still damage the f*** out of them. You can spec into defence if you plan on solo laning tho, and it wont affect your damage output to much. So don't be affraid to experiment.

Team Work

Now teamwork is a touchy subject. Teamwork isn't really something people are good at especially playing with randoms. Maokai is the king of teamwork and is very beneficial to the team. When you want to gank you can root "w" and then knock them in the air with "q" providing plenty of time for your team to kill the opponent. In teamfights Maokai is just as important. His ultimate is just as dangerous as it is important. Use your "r" ability when going into a teamfight to provide a 20% Damage reduction to allies and then when the opponent team is low unque "r" to damage them . This comes in handy alot and dont be afraid to use it when its up due to a low cooldown.
