Chapter 1



Maokai: Rocking SoloTop, SoloMid, Jungle and on Lane



Hello everybody, and thank you for reading my guide. After reading my guide, please make a little evaluation, by giving me positive or negative score. Also you can give me any tips in comments. I'll describe Maokai. Maokai is a tank who makes nice damage if you can play it.



(Team1 First Build)

First I will show you how to rock the SoloTop lane. At the bgeining buy and three times a HEALTH PORTION. It's very easy to farm with the Sapling Toss. Maokai trow it, it makes damage and the Sapling Toss explode and that makes damage, too. Your enemies don't have a chance to push if you harris them with you Sapling Toss. Similar to that is the fact that you can stun them if they are at your tower and you can strike them back with Arcane Smash.

Summoner Spells:
Clarity
Ghost

ITEMS:
Mercury's Treads
Rod of Ages
Zhonya's Hourglass
Rylai's Crystal Scepter
Warmog's Armor
Rabadon's Deathcap



(Team1 Second Build)

Second I will show you how to do the SoloMid. You think Maokai isn't a mid char? You are wrong. Its very easy you buy Doran's Ring and harris your enemie with Sapling Toss. You also can farm with it very nice. If you at the lvl 4 you can do a nice combo. You trow a Sapling Toss at you ennemie and stun him with Twisted Advance than you use your Arcane Smash and strike them back if the try to run away. If you are at the lvl 6 it is very nice compatible with his Ulti.

Summoner Spells:
Teleport
Flash

ITEMS:
Mercury's Treads
Rod of Ages
Zhonya's Hourglass
Rylai's Crystal Scepter
Warmog's Armor
Rabadon's Deathcap



(Team1 Third Build and Team2 Second Build)

Third there is the Jungle Maokai. It is very nice because of his Passiv. After six Spells his next normal attaks heals him. This picture shows you how to place the Sapling Toss before the Blue Buff spawn.
There have to be three Sapling Toss at 1:40 (not earlier, cause of thier explosion after 35 seconds). If you are at the level 6 you have to Gank, what is very nice with Maokai. You trow a Sapling Toss at you ennemie and stun him with Twisted Advance than you use your Arcane Smash and strike them back if the try to run away. If your enemies attak you and your Teammate use your ulti Vengeful Maelstrom and let it explode if they stay in the ring.

(Team2 First Build)

Good Maokai partners are: Ashe Caitlyn Katarina Kog'Maw Renekton Teemo Twisted Fate

It is also really nice to play with a teammate. You could push hard with an AD - Carry (best is Caitlyn). So First you buy Doran's Ring and let your Teammate farm. You go on harrising. Your Teammate can farm very long and hard if you harris your enemies with Sapling Toss.
