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.
this is my first guide so please come with tips for improvement
mordekaiser is unique because 25% of his ability damage is converted into a temporarily shield that blocks all damage untill its gone.
I have experimented alot with builds for mordekaiser to see what i find best for him. finally i have my final build and im here to show it to you.
Level 1 i usually start off with a regrowth pendant for the health regen you need for your skills. Since mordekaiser uses health for his skills instead of mana. Late game its not a problem but at around level 5 you will really start noticing you are drastically hurting yourself. just keep harassing your opponents with syphon of destruction and mace of spades.
early-mid game i have my spirit visage plus merc threads for the survivability and from that point you dont really have health issues anymore when spamming skills. Plus phage for some health and the slowing effect.
mid game i get some more health items like sunfire cape and build my regroth pendant into warmogs armor. and i build my phage into a frozen mallet.
Late game i get a bloodthirster for the damage and some lifesteal. At this point you are almost unstoppable. If the game stil is not over sell spirit visage and get:
-banshees veil incase of a caster heavy teem
-randuins omen or thprnmail incase of a dps heavy team
children of the grave > siphon of destruction > mace of spades > creeping death
flash can be changed into skill of choice i just like an escape cause morde does not have one of his own.
ignite is a must have for morde in combination with his ultimate.
make a list in your head to see who has cleanse since it can just ignore your ultimate and ignite.
use your ultimate on hard hitting ranged dps you get the most out of them
fight with some enemy minions close for the shield
