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.
Mordekasier, in my opinion one of the best champions in the league. Some would argue he is easily dealt with by someone like kogmaw or ashe who can kite him around. The truth is LoL is a team game...you are rarly ever fighting 1v1.
Mord's ability to deal heavy AoE dmg early and late game make him a very good tank, people say tanks have to have CC or they arnt tanks, this is not true. Mord has no CC to speak of, no taunt, no stun not even a slow and yet he is still an amzing tank. Even without his amazing dps Mord can still pull through as a tank, his mountains of HP and shield passive are more then enough but still he has more.
Mordekaisers best ability is without a doubt his ultimate, not because it steals roughly 35% of the targets maximum hp and transfers it to mord its perhaps because if the target dies they are enslaved and under his control. Quickly turning a 5v5 into a 6v4, this ability alone can win every team fight you are in if utilized correctly.
Just the other day i got a delayed penta kill as mord, i killed 4 of there team for a quadra kill and then whent after the final target who was a few yards away (nidalee), my entire team was dead exepct for me. Nidalee did not run, and decided to fight, it suprised me but i was quite willing to fight her. I was at close to 20% hp but with my Warmoggs and Force of Nature i was regenerating enough health to take her one. She was almost out of mana and she had enough for one spell, her heal. Had she not used that heal i would have killed her fast enough for the penta, sadly i was just a split second too slow and only got the quadra.
The reason i was able to kill there entire team was for a few simple reasons,
One: I had a ghostly enemy helping me burn down the targets i decided to go after.
Two: I was the tank so i got completly ignored wich resulted in them losing the team fight
Three: My shield had absorbed much of the AoE damage, without it i would have died.
Mord's dps is his ver. of CC other tanks have taunts and stuns or what not, mord as dps. Build him correctly and you can get your enemies in a lock. If they focus you, your team kills them while you take the damage. If they focus your team, you anhilated them with your aoe spells and ghostify there strongest champ.
Reasons to play Mordekaiser:
You want a champion who looks like hes strong enough to stop just about anything just by standing in one place.
You want to be able to charge into 5 people and come out with not only 5 kills but a ghostly slave to do your bidding.
You like your weapons like you like your music, heavy and metal.
You like winning.
All in all Mordekasier is a fun and powerful champion that is a must have for your collection. Enjoy!
