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.
Hi, this is my ever first build i'm making and hope that you guys enjoy it and help you guys on playing epicly with my build :)
For runes, I choose Damage marks,magic resistance seals,ability power glyphs and quintessence runes to give Mordekaiser as much damage as he can with some extra magic resistance to protect himself from heavy and fat mages (e.g. Annie,Ryze etc.)
For masteries I select offense-defense-utility in 17-3-10 for as much damage, experience points, armor and ability power as much as he already has
I pick really tanky and strong ability power items to ensure that i not just have a amazing defense and health, but great damage when attacking enemies
I first pick Mace of spades, Siphon of destruction and creeping death and Children of the grave and after u get these you can put your skills in any other as you like but for me i just put those that are on top
For spells i use flash to escape early game as Mordekaiser is kinda soft in early game and Exhaust to prevent enemies from escaping as having their damage lowered in a team fight
I use Mordekaiser as a tank champion only if the team has no other tank(s) as this makes Mordekaiser a great killer with no one ksing him when he is about to kill or make enemies all agroed on him
Pros / Cons
Mordekaiser is exceptionally well against soft or not very good magical resistance champions and can kill them withought really trying hard and is bad against champions that have really heavy damage and have life steal. Champions that he can't handle: Tryndamere, Xin zhao, and as well as much more heavy damage/ life stealing champions that can stun and taunt. but champions that he can handle: Caitlyn, Ashe, etc.
Creeping / Jungling
I start of Mordekaiser laning with a Nasus or another fighter and start jungling when he is about lvl 7 or so to keep up his cash and kill buff bosses about lvl 11 or so to get extra damage. Killing dragon will be on about lvl 14 as he is a really low damage champion to solo dragon early but will be managable when he gets Warmog's Armor and Force Of Nature. Killing Baron will be lvl 16-18 (as you all expected) as he can withstand heavy damage for your team while they stand back and relax while he does not really get hurt much at all.
I suggest that Mordekaiser actually tanks just as he gets his ultimate to make his pet help him get some kills or take down towers with any of your team to be beside him and another person behind to ambush if the enemy that you want to gank is actually (e.g talon that is a really good escape champion)
One of his most unique skills is Maze of spades and Children of the grave as Maze of spades deal crazy damage with ability power and soloing enemies and Children Of The Grave life steals your enemies health and deals them damage and if that specifice target that you use Children of the grave on dies within 10 seconds, that champion will be your pet for 30 seconds and your pet will be just the same as your enemies health,mana,attack damage,etc. and your pet gets additional damage based on a percentage of your health.
Hope you guys enjoyed it, gimme a ratting, tell me if you don't like it and i will be checking my builds every week if need be and see you guys around in my next build. Thank you and hope my build helps you flip some pancakes. (my best record for Mordekaiser is 16/6/27
