How To Play

Ok im gona put some info how to start game with Morde.
First 2 items arei think almost every1 start like this. When you go on the line try to stay alive and dont be so aggresive in beggining try to take as many minions you can its not so hard with his skills. I go first withit healps to hit multiple target's and your shield absorb good healt, if you gona play aggresive in start to scare your enemy i prefer first skilltry to hit them without minions around you cuz if the target is alone it takes a lot of dmg. After you get some gold go and buyi think their better then magic pen, my second item that i buy is->it gives you a good regen, movement speed and a lot of magic resist, if you play vs more ad heroes then i preferwill keep you alive for some time. After you finish this 2 items try ganking to take some extra gold if you cant keep farming, you can try jungle too take blue buff for cd or red one for slow both r good. Next item depend on what you buy firstorbut if you ask me you need them both. After you have this 3 items you can easy go in fights first for your team, but ofc that depend on your team cuz you can jump but they may not believe me i see it many times. Next item i buy ismaybe a lot dont think like me but i dont know i love to have a lot of hp :) problem is that 1 nice dude tell me if there is Warwick or kog'maw then dont buy it cuz they will make you more damage if you have more healt. Really this hero have many way's to be played and every one have their style even if you want you can play it on ap, but i dont like it this way. Other item if there is 2-3 ap heroes you can tryit will give you good basic damage and bonus damage on your first skill, another item that now i think its important for morde isarmor, healt, cd reduction, 20% on being hit to slow your enemy speed and attack speed by 35% and have a rly nice active skill slow movement by 30% for 2 sec and +0.5 for every 100 and magic resist this can help you escape from chasing or other way to catch some1 and kill him. And last item that i prefer iswhen you use ability you slow your target speed by 35% for 2 sec. Now for his ulty i say it on summary but will say it here too, try comboandits rly a good combo, the thing is that Morde ulty steal from your enemy hp based on his max heal so you can use it on tanks too. Rly guys its my first build and i dont expect to be the perfect, like you can see i try to improve it help the new ones who like Morde. Im not playng from long and dont know all things in game yet, and heroes too i play with maybe 20-25 from all and there is 60+ heroes i dont know all and i cant tell you alternative on their skills or items, what you must buy for every one, and if i did mb will take me weeks to type it :) Well this is for now i will try upgrade it when i can. Peace

Well little change here gona put some pic-s and options.

When i wanna go play aggresive instead playing deffense i go like this.

Some say that its not so helpful but i dont know it work for me.

If you wanna become a very good tank so i prefer this.

This 9 points on Offense you can put it on utility 2, its rly your choise but i alomost never did it.

Next if you wanna be both them mb this is the way

Very nice movement speed, cd reduction, armor and magic resist. But Important thing is that you rly need to decide how you wanna play, if you r new one with Morde then i prefer you Deffense mastery, you will have good time to gain some game expiriance over the hero.

Creeping / Jungling

Other thing is that morde is very good for jungle too, i didn't see any1 for now go in jungle with him but you can try it, that way you can earn fast level and start ganking very soon.

Guide Top

Team Work

Morde is very good for team work you must go first in fight and if you have a carry with low hp and resist its good to give him the second skill for magic resist and armor, dont think only for yourself cuz this game is about team play if there's no team play then game is over.

Playing With Morde Or Vs HiM

Playing with Morde You can control a pet by holding down the alt key and using the right mouse button. Sometimes the best defense is more offense; use Mordekaiser's abilities to charge up his shield. Remember that Children of the Grave can be used defensively because of its lifesteal component.

Playing Vs Him Mordekaiser's abilities charge up his shield, making him tougher to kill over time. Try focusing fire on Morderkaiser to burst him down. Keep your distance and don't stand near creep waves since he'll be aiming Siphon of Destruction at them.

And a last thing Morde Ulty is very powerful when you play 5v5 just try to focus the hero with most attack damage and use it on him, but you must kill it when its on it, so when you take your target Soul you can pwn all other very easy. 1 time i kill tristana wich was with 400+ attack damage and i just stay in the jungle and control it and well i kill 4 people with her my point is never use Morde ult on mage's or supporters cuz their soul will be useless. Hope i help to some1 its my first build and if some people like it i will start make others. Gl and Hf Guys see you on the BattleField :))

I was playing against 4 ad heroes + lux----. As you can see on the build i go only with force of nature for magic resist and if you play vs 1 ap hero its enought. Let me tell you how much armor i was, about 369 without runes + them i go over 400 i was 78% dmg reduction over 3,600 hp,430 movement, and pure 40% cdr i was unkillable i only die cuz i want it :))) hope i help stay for more.

Ultra Hybrid Morde !

Like i say i try different things with morde alot of things but never cross my mind do try spell vamp so i try it look what happendif you wanna try this build chek what you will become.Alot From everything 300 dmg, armor good, magic r, ap, movement, cdr, and important thing 60% Spell Vamp i was on game only with 2 hextech gunblade as you can see and my second skill, my shield was returning to me about 50-60 hp on sec without others skills and it was rly rly funny, if you have time try it :))

Another way With Morde !

Recently im trying different things with morde. You see there is 80% of people that play with morde on tank or trying hybrid him but that's wrong, if your team need tank then you go on tank dont try stupid things cuz you will fail, but if you have good tank team + 1-2 attack damage heroes then try that 1!
,,,,,. I was 400+ ability power and my magics ahahah lets say it that way i make damages on 18 lvl heroes 350+400 with single skill i was with deffense masteries if you play with ofense then you will make more damage but you must have rly rly good control of your hero cuz you r not so strong with these items and if they gank you 2 combos can kill you, so you must play carefull but in team fights you will Own them with your mass magic's and your Ultimate SteaL % go to the roof. I hope some1 try this 1 and have a good team to see how good morde is on AP. GL AND HF

Some words About Him

From the Shadow Isles comes a champion like no other. Standing eight feet tall, concealed within a razor-sharp armored shell is a creature known only as Mordekaiser. Some allege that he is a man, though none have actually seen what lies within the plates that encompass him. There are those who posit that he isn't a living being, but rather a particularly dark specimen of the undead rumored to infest his distant homeland - but such rumors are surely merely the ramblings of the paranoid or the whispers of the insane. What is known is this: Mordekaiser arrived unannounced at the Institute one day and, with the rasp of an echoing sepulcher, requested to join the League of Legends.

As if his fearful visage doesn't disturb enough, his touch bears a sinister plague. Those unfortunate enough to be caught within his grasp fall victim to incurable maladies. In fact, Mordekaiser seems mystically connected to sickness, as if it feeds and comprises part of his chilling essence. He has been seen stalking the slums of Noxus, drawn to the plague-ridden and diseased. However, there is something in his clever tactics, something in his noble stance, something in the tone of his unearthly commands that has led many to believe that Mordekaiser is more than just a foot soldier. Some see the distinguishing characteristics of a general. While many have learned to accept this unsettling possibility, a lingering question keeps them uneasily awake at the witching hour - If Mordekaiser is a general, what nightmarish army lurks at his command?

If there is a thing festering at the heart of the League, it is the Lord of the Damned.
