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 ok first off plz dont mind my spelling i work in a coal mine spelling wasnt a job requirement lol. im going to show you the power of malz he is my fav champ and is extreamly fun to play once you get the hang of him. this is my first guide so i dont expect it to be perfect and its not going to be super detailed but will have what you need to know.
Pros / Cons
+very good damage -squishy
+one of the best lane pushers -focused
+great farmer -early game mana trouble
+fantastic 1v1 -ult easy to interupt
+great ganker -did i mention squishy?
+good anti tank
basically the runes i use are to help me early game because damage is a little light in begining otherwisebut you can switch it up to however you feel best fits your playstyle. i will also go with the AP per/level sometimes for better late game damage.
ok now most guides i seen go with the 9/0/21 build. i on the otherhand much prefer to do the heavy damage with 22/0/8 i put the four pounts in swiftness because you are very squishy. with this build it is very easy to take down any singal target in one combo.
ok now team fights you really need to sit back at first and pick your time carefully to come in cause YOU WILL BE FOCUSED try to make sure that the other team has expended some of there cc first so you can get in a clean nether grasp, drop null zone for AoE and its anti tankand silence ap with call of the void
just going to list basic use and sequence i use. for farming/ lane pushing drop null zone and the malefic visions and its almost a self farming combo <3it. for other players i open with deathfire grasp for some burst then malefic visions, now drop null zone under them and nether grasp asap if you get this combo on someone i almost promise its a kill for you. try to force any silence or stun first so as to not get nether grasp interupted.
team fights you are going to need to pick a key time to come in as you will be focused. drop null zone and try to silence any ap with call of the void.
ok most items i get are pretty basic ap i like to get deathfire grasp soon so i can have something to make people think twice about rushing me, and then zhonya's because you are very squishyand i also get rylay's to stop people from kiting you. sometimes i will also get a second death cap instead of void staff if enemy isnt getting magic resistence.
ok guys that about does it i know its not super detailed but i got the basics and its my first guide. plz leave any comments or suggestions below i am very intrested in reading what you guys think or any tips you guys have to improve the guide and remember if its negative plz just keep it to your self hope you enjoy
