Introduction

Hi guys!!!! This is my first complete build, so be cool. I have played many times with Maokai lately and I feel that something is missing. Maokai is for most a low-attack tank and nothing else; not for me, I think that Maokai can be a good damage champion. So I decided to make something like an off-tank Maokai..!! Enjoy!!

Runes

I choose "mana regen/5 sec" Marks, because Maokai need a lot of mana. "Cooldown" Seals, because he need his abilities to deal damage. "Health regen/5 sec" Glyphs, because he also need Hp to "tank". Last but not least, Quintessences; I always think, why only 1 (3 times) and not 3 (1 time each)(?). So i chose 3 different types of Quintessence same as the other runes:); "health-mana regen/5 sec" and "cooldown". Those were my runes.

Masteries

Items

[*] Doran's Ring: A good starter item for Maokai.
[*] Mercury's Treads: Gives speed and tenacity..good for slows stuns etc....
[*] Rod of Ages: Mana, Health and AP...What else do you need?!
[*] Manamune: Great mana must....if you want you can buy this earlier....
[*] Lich Bane: Another must for mana and AP.
[*] Warmog's Armor: Just for Health.
[*] Rylai's Crystal Scepter: Sell Doran's Ring and then buy Rylai's...
That's all about items.

Skill Sequence

We start with "Sampling Toss" cause is very cute; I'm joking, it has good damage and it's ranged skill, something that will help fighting either (e.g.) Annie and Yi. You should max it out first. Then goes "Twisted Advance". It goes out second. Next up, is "Arcane Smash". Last but not least, level up "Vengeful Maelstrom' whenever you can.

Summoner Spells

[*] Teleport Because you are a tank and in case of emergency you have to run.

[*] Clarity because you use your Ulti and other abilites a lot, so you could use some mana.

Tips for better gaming

[*] Don't be afraid of others, but don't do to risky moves that will harm you or your team.
[*] ALWAYS thing of your teammates.
[*] If you thing about tower diving use first "Sampilng Toss" cause it might do the work fot u. then try "Twisted Advance" because you will get the enemy without getting much damage.
[*] If you gang and they gang try using "R" in the middle of the fight the everything else and the exact moment that the enemy is about to get out of the AOE of your "R" activate it!!

I thing the tips will be useful!!
