Intro

Hello, This is Xingzo bringing you a Maokai Ability Power and Tank guide. I have tried this. it worked out decently well. I've tried to bring the power of Ability and the endurance of a tank to make an Ability Tank. I think i did a good job on this. Resulting in a hybrid-ish Maokai. You should result in a devastating destructive tank that supports and kills.

Runes

: Ability power to help out early.

: I take this instead of Flat armor because Maokai is pretty tanky as it is. You dont exactly need more Health but Armor helps in early game.

: The same goes for this one, Maokai is already pretty tanky.

: Total AP domination :D

Masteries

As you can seen of my masteries I Take the summoner spell buff to help with ignite. I also take the AP side of the tree and take the last one because if you have a good team you will be able to mow more people down. On Defense I take Armor and Magic Resist and take the Health increase per level.

Skill Sequence

Your Skill sequence is rather important. for some people Ability Power Maokai is a whole different game play. it should be(In front of opponent) (add R when you want) and spam your abilities when they pop up from cool down.

Items

There is two ways I build My Maokai. I had a hard time deciding but finally. I chose that Armor and Magic Resist was more important then Ability Power because Maokai was supposed to be tank. My first build as you can see up top was

First Build:

Second Build:

My second build involves total domination. This is if your fed and if you know you can totally win. This is what you want to go for. This is like 90% Ability Power 10% Tank.

(Btw after you get later into the game you can switch out Haunting Guise for a or if your looking for more tanky stuff go for a OR
