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 again everyone, it is me, Kokou. For those of you who do not know, i am quite new at mobafire guide building, so please bear with me. Today I present to you my super secret techniques with my very first champ: Mordekaiser. I have friend who requested I publish this build because he would take life steal to start a game. Yes, life steal, and no not a doran's blade, but a vampiric scepter. This one is for you yaoi(his name, and no i did not name him).
Also, before i begin, i will tell you that i do not know how to include pictures in my guides, nor do i know how to change the colors of words, so my build explanation will be rather dry, but i will make it short and sweet for you.
Pros / Cons
-Mordekaiser es da best.
-Pair will (bra)zilean for automatic win.
-None, es da best, #1.
(THIS IS A JOKE! PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT MORDE IS NOT THE BEST CHARACTER EVER. IF YOU DON'T GET IT OH WELL, BUT IF YOU DO, I'M SURE YOU LOL'D)
: Magic penetration, makes your spells give you more shield every time you hit someone.
Seals : Early game sustainability, Morde has semi-high natural MR(magic resist), so you just need some armor to start.
Glyphs : Casting more spells faster keeps your shield up and you un-kill-able. Duh.
Quints : More health means less time you have to leave the lane at the beginning. Again, duh.
Offense: Archaic knowledge
; see Runes:Marks.
Defense: Everything, to keep you un-kill-able. 4% reduced damage from life, pretty good. I only take the dodge because it the only viable mastery to take to get all the way down the tree.
Utility:nothing needed here.
Ignite: a must have. If you combine it will a well timed ult, it will guaranty a kill.
Ghost: This on is just my personal preference. Flash, Tele, Fortify will all work just as well. Anything but Heal, Clarity, and Rally. So help me if i see a Morde with rally......
Skill importance: >>>.
So i grab Siphon to start, it is a great aoe that will give tons of shield, and i max it out by level 9. At this point you should have some health regen and you cool down should be low enough that you can just span Siphon everywhere. Make sure you are typing /all huehueheuhueheuheuheuehuehueheuheuehuehue at about 30 times a minute. It is just how pro Mordes are.
Next focus on getting the maxed, obviously getting your every chance you get. Your will allow you to gain shield from greater distances with little risk because you can put it on on of your melee minions as he charges fearlessly into battle. Seriously, if I was a minion I would be like "F*** this, I'm out". Unless there was a Morde to protect me.
And then your . It's meh. Gives some shield, but not as much as , and has melee range. I use is mainly to reset my attack timer while hitting a turret.
Don't worry people, this is my last chapter before the summary. So just hold in there for a little bit longer. Thanks <3
Regrowth and pot to start, standard Morde stuff. Good early game sustainability.
Build into philoPhilosopher's Stone, for even better health regen and free money. Heart of gold after for more health and more free money.
For boots I recommend Merc Treads because there is a lot of CC(crowd control, ie stun, silence etc.) out there and if you get caught up in it, you can't generate shield, which sucks. But if you want to build Sorcerer's shoes instead, got for it. It's all up to you.
Will of the Ancients : This is a fantastic item for someone like Morde. He just sits there and spams abilities all day, which makes him really hard to kill because of his passive, but now, he heals with each spell? Broken/S tier stuff my friend.
Warmog's : I like to stack a little health with Morde so I can spam a bit harder, and still be hard to kill. This one gives a whole lot of health, so it should keep you in the fight for a while. A good alternative if your start wasn't to good is a sunfire cape . Cheaper and it has a dot. Not to bad. But still > .
Force of Nature : After you get all that health, you gotta make sure it stays up, so I build one of the best regen items out there. Not to mention a good amount of MR, and a little movement speed bonus. As stated in the comments(Ssyrak);Abyssal Scepter is a good alternative to .
Randuin's Omen : Just an all around good item. Get some armor, get some health regen. And the active is pretty good to. I just forget to use it most of the time XD
Guardian Angel : Not only does it give armor and MR, but it gives you a second life. Not much explanation here. If you don't feel you need it, go for a Hourglass , this gives armor and ability power, and the active; invulnerability for a couple seconds. Pretty sick.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter : Gives Health and some Ap. Also gives some CC(crowd control) which Morde has none of. For you Augman.
Well that's it guys. Leave your comments below, and constructive criticism is always welcome. Tell me how I can improve my guides, and I will make sure it gets nicer for you all. I also will make a guide for any character requested of me, just send me a message or leave a comment. Otherwise i will ask you to remove it. This is to weed out those who just look at the top and then yap.
Until then I will see you on the battlefield, and if I ever see a Morde with life steal EVER I will do horrible things to your face.
Please help me help you,
