Items

They are basic for the tank. First able u have to have good items for jungling. Also gives u bonus armor and health points. After that u should do someting for your team, as u know u have low dmg so u should gets some auras for the team. Extra wards are always good in the map. Also I add some dmg in the end.

Masteries

I add 30 points in defence, because it gives u hard protection in teamfights.

Runes

Greater Quints gives you more mobility with 1.5% moving speed what is good in all game especially for early game. Greater Seals armor, Greater Marks magic penetration, Greater Glyphs magic resist, all what ap tank need.

Style of playing

We start from wolfs, then making blue adding Sapling TossSapling Toss and Arcane SmashArcane Smash then we go on wraiths and golums. Now on 3 lvl we updating Twisted AdvanceTwisted Advance and go for first gank on bottom.
Also we can start from red but we have to do it smiteless and buy 1 or 2 Mana Potion mana potions. After blue we can gank top or mid.
In mid game we have to watch how fights are going and use our ulti smart. Roots enemy and slowing them for kills. Its nice to use combo W , Q, R ,E if we have ap or ad carry near by enemy should be smash.
In Late game we have to watch where are our allience because we have low dmg and Maokai Maokai is not good fighter in 1 vs 1 agains other fighters when we are full tanky.
