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.
Hello everyone! This is my first build i am posting on here, so constructive criticism would be nice. So lets get started. I have been playing morde for a while now and i have tried a variety of different things from ap to attack dmg to rolling my face on the keyboard. Now before i go any further, you might be asking yourself "WTF is with those runes?!?!!?"...to make a long story short, when i first started playing, i bought shaco then got all the runes, then picked up morde and just said **** it and tried him with these glyphs and it actually works! (had crit runes but changed them). I would like to apologize ahead of type for any typos, also i know this isnt TOO in depth but i figured some of you already know some of this stuff from reading other builds.
Playing Morde/Skill Sequence
OK so, its all about Siphon Siphon Siphon, cant stress that enough. Max that asap, then Mace of Spades, then Creeping death ( sometimes ill grab one of each, this way i have everything just incase, pends on how the other team is playing). Playing as Mord is fun. If you like a Hunk of Metal surrounded by Electric that can withstand severe punishment, while smashing craniums in with a Big *** Mace and eating your opponents souls for breakfast then Mordekaiser is for you.
-You don't HAVE to follow this order you can grab a piece of armor first pending on the team then phage if you want then the another piece of armor.-
First your going to pick up
- Doran's Shield and a
- Health Potion.
Next we are going to work on [*] Mercury's Treads (i always get them because 90 percent of the time im facing CC) You can get sorc boots if you want, but depends on team.
Start working on your [*] Randuin's Omen OR [*] Force of Nature pending if the team is has melee/casters. If your going for [*] Randuin's Omen first then get [*] Heart of Gold ( the 5 gold every 10 sec is nice so thats a no brainer) then [*] Warden's Mail. If your getting [*] Force of Nature then get those [*] Regrowth Pendant's.
Now after having those 2 items you shouldn't have to go back to town for a while because this combo is AMAZING, you have health regen coming out of your ***, an AoE slow and movement speed.(as soon as you get enough gold, go back and get a phage unless your team needs you or your doing well)
Finally, and most likely your last piece, [*] Phage/[*] Frozen Mallet. This gives you some more health and most importantly, SLOW (yes we alrdy have randuins but what if its on cd, plus its great for chasing or just smacking someone real quick so you can get away, and the health is always nice). Now if the game has a little bit left to go but not enough for you to build another item, well then common sense says ELXIRS! one of each.
As for the [*] Sunfire Cape and [*] Guardian's Angel, those are late late game if you haven't won alrdy (now heres where you can say but you can pick up a haunting guise or some other Ap item that goes well with magic pen to keep shields high or dish out more dmg, well this is a prety strict tank build as you can see, ( i know hes not a TRUE TANK becuase he has ZER0 CC but that dosn't mean he cant be a meatshield!) but you will very RARELY die and can just soak some serious dmg and dish out a decent amount.
I get Ignite because obviously it goes EXTREMELY well with Mord's ultimate. (this is a MUST imo).
And I grab Sprint to chase/escape, to be everywhere.
All of these were choices i made when i first started (as i stated in the first paragraph). Looking at this makes me laugh, of course i can tweak it and make it better, but imo, dont fix what ain't broken. Oddly enough this works (at least for me, idk bout you guys because you havn't tried it yet xD)
T3Marks- Flat Attack Speed
T3Seals - HP per Lvl
T3Glyphs- CDR per lvl
T3Quint's- Attack Dmg per lvl
IF WITH PARTNER
So start pushing your lane with lots of siphon your shield should be up most of the time. If your doing well you should be keeping your enemy at the tower not letting them get last hits. If not then just chill back keep your shields up and stay in lane until lvl 6 or 1200g then grab your merc treds. Now EVERYTIME, (unless another lane needs covering or your lane tower is in danger, or some1 needs help wutever the reason as long as it important enough) on your way back from base go to the river bush in your lane for possible ganks, this works quite often for me unless they'r smart and grab a ward (wich you will notice if they start running away)
IF MID LANE
Ok, so if you got mid, thats great news!, you can now lvl a ****load faster and with sprint can be anywhere. Same steps as before, KEEP YOUR SHIELDS UP!!!. Im not really sure what else to type about mid, i guess keep an eye out in the side lanes, and occasionally check the bushes, and help your team gank if you see some1 at low hp.
If you got the 2v1 lane thats also good, just play defensively and pick at their health as much as you can. Now if one of them has half health or less, ask your jungler to help you, when hes in position, get SIPHON for shields then run in, and smack him with mace>ignite>ulti and BAM you got a soul! then just use that to push the lane or kill the other guy. What if instead its a DCer/Leaver/Afker? then only go in if you are 100 percent sure your guna get a kill, and if you do and the other enemy stays because you have low hp sick your soul on him and kite him (if your rly low he will bite hard) then you should have gotten yourself a double kill!
THE 3 STAGES
Ok so grab your goods and go mid if no1 else can, maybe a 2v1 lane if possible?, if not then find a good lane partner (anyone with a snare/stun, i like ryze or xin). Mord is amazing at pushing as we all know. Also no matter what lane you take, b4 going in for a kill, ALWAYS hit tab and look at the enemy's summoner spells to make sure they arn't going to bait you with heal or whatever, its always good to know what summoner spells your dealing with.
Ok so by now you should have pieces of randuins or the whole thing/ force of nature wich ever u got first, maybe a little of both. Now same thing as before, help your team push and gank, if your traveling through the forests, smack the wolves and ghouls for extra cash and xp,(since all you have to do is siphon>mace>all dead). I usually don't get the monster buffs cuz theres ppl on my team who need it more.
So its late game, by now you should have your core build (Merc Treds/Randuins/Force of Nature/Phage or if you got the Frozen mallet, even better). Now it comes down to team fights. First things first, before you go in make sure you got your Creeping Death Up, and SHIELD!!! go right for their carry and throw ignite>ulti on them when below half or at half, BAM then its a 6v4 if none of you died, if 1 or 2 of you did then keep smashing, you wont die, your survivability is through the roof!
If you have read this far i really appreciate it, i just spent like 2 hours typing this xD. Again I would love some constructive Criticism! Thank You All and Have a GREAT Day!
