Now with an optimal manual on pre-game, gearing setups, and 30% more ownage
Last Updated: 06.March.2011
Mordekaiser has had a few changes ever since my first couple of guides, essentially that made me change my mind a few times before I finally decided to archive everything as it was next to impossible to keep it up to date. I did however promise to keep a few guides, Taric being one of them, and now that I've found a new way to play Mordekaiser I can start writing this one in a better fashion.
1. Overpowering laner
2. Snowballing powerhouse
3. Guaranteed kill with DoTs
1. Crippled by perma-slow
2. Fragile early-game
3. No crowd controll
II. Pre-game Setups
Recommended Summoner Spells:
Ignite: You will find no pledge in either one of the two DoTs I use with Mordekaiser, but if you combine them it can come in handy to quickly down someone on the enemy team. Otherwise you want to use it to scare enemies during the laning-phase and effectively reduce healing effects.
Ghost: Most of the time you'll find it useful to rush your opponents with the infamous Ignite + Children of the Grave combo, or just to GTFO! The worst case scenario is you being perma-slowed and having people getting out of range, use with caution.
Considerable Summoner Spells:
III. How to Ironman
25/27.5/30% of the damage dealt from abilities is converted into a temporary shield. Maximum shield strength is 620 health. The shield decays by 3% per second.
Mace of Spades
On next hit, Mordekaiser swings his mace with such force that it echoes out, striking up to 3 additional nearby targets, dealing damage plus bonus damage. If the target is alone, the bonus damage is doubled.
Unleashes a protective cloud of metal shards to surround an ally, increasing their armor and magic resistance and dealing damage per second to enemies in the cloud.
Siphon of Destruction
Mordekaiser deals damage to enemies in a cone in front of him. For each unit hit, Mordekaiser's shield absorbs energy.
Children of the Grave
Mordekaiser curses an enemy, stealing a percent of their life each second. If the target dies while the spell is active, their soul is enslaved and will follow Mordekaiser for 30 seconds.

Frequently Asked Questions:
If you have any questions please ask them, I will answer within a week, I guarantee it.
Q: Who's the one playing in the pictures named Alahric?
A: That is my real account name, I'm playing on EU servers. The Sivir named "Keh Loco" is my little sister, cute isn't it? She's level 9 or something so for the love of god don't add her to your friend list.
Q: What's with the name "MoD[Revisitited]"?
Q: Why Ghost instead of Flash?
Q: Whats your take on Utility vs. Defense?
Q: What do you think about rushing Force of Nature?
Q: When should I buy Sight Ward?
A: All the time, whenever you have a spare 75-150 gold you should purchase wards and place them depending on your current situation as shown in the guide. But this is mere pointless if someone on the enemy team has an Oracle Elixir.
Q: How do I create an image from League of Legends?
A: When you are in the game swap settings on Video to windows mode, and press Alt + Prnt Scrn when you have the image you want. Paste it into a Paint or Photoshop, upload that file at http://imageshack.us/ and use the forum code.
Q: Should I use Mordekaiser in normal game PUGs?
