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.

My other builds:
Garen - A DPS Hybrid Carry Build
Taric - A Tank/Support Hybrid Build
Ezreal - A Flexible AP/AD Hybrid Build
Galio - A Synergized Tank Build

Note: This is not a guide for how to play Morgana, simply a build to utilize in conjunction with those guides.

Note #2: I have no idea if this works.

This is a semi-serious build that attempts to exploit a certain item in the game. Please don't take it too seriously or be too harsh on it. If you want to be harsh, go to my other more serious builds (links on top).

...

So one day I was just randomly looking through the League of Legends wikia, and I came across Archangel's Staff. Looking through the description, I saw this:

Quoted:
* Stacking multiple Archangel's Staves profits a generous amount of ap. The bonus mana is unique, however the 400 base mana is not. The 3% bonus ap from mana is also not unique. Each Archangel's Staff after the first increases the effectiveness of the previous Archangel's Staff (the extra 400 mana). These are the values without considering base mana from the selected champion:

1. Archangel's Staff: 81.25 ap
2. Archangel's Staff: 182.5 ap
3. Archangel's Staff: 303.75 ap
4. Archangel's Staff: 445 ap
5. Archangel's Staff: 606.25 ap
6. Archangel's Staff: 787.5 ap


So I thought wow. Imagine that much AP on a character with good AP scaling. That could do a serious amount of hurt! As I pondered the possibilities with various champions in the game, I came across Morgana. All of her abilities scale incredibly well with AP, AND she has a built in spell vamp innate that allows her to heal through her spell damage. Combining her Fallen Angel awesomeness with a few Archangel's Staffs, I thought, could mean serious trouble. Thus, this build was born.

In this build I try to maximize farming ability early on by maxing Tormented Soil first. Morgana will be able to lane for a long time with her large mana pool thanks to the runes, masteries, Sapphire Crystal, and spell vamp. She may also help out in early ganks with her snare, Dark Binding, which I chose to max out second. One level of Black Shield was taken at level 8 to help her and her teammates survive some nasty situations that might arise in mid-game, when the team ganking begins.

Although Morgana most likely won't be able to attain all 5 Archangel's Staves (the other team probably would've surrendered already :P), I'll do a little math for you to show you just how much potential this build can have:
5354.3 mana + 1000 mana from Archangel's Staff Unique Passive = 6354.3 mana
3% max mana converted to AP per Archangel's Staff * 5 Archangel's Staves * 6354.3 mana = 953.145 extra AP from mana conversion
953.145 extra AP + 225 AP from Archangel's Staff = 1178.145
:D

Understand that Morgana will be squishy as hell, and that a single stun/disable may wipe her out easily if Black Shield isn't in place to negate said stun/disable. However, the sheer amount of damage she can do to an entire team with this build, I believe, completely outweighs her squishiness and vulernability to stun/disables. But like I said in the beginning, I have NO IDEA if this works. So, I hope that YOU as readers of MOBAFire and players of LoL will go try this build out and give me some feedback on whether it works or not.

P.S. Do not attempt this build in the vicinity of a Veigar.
