AP Offtank Mordekaiser Top
Not Updated For Current Season
Welcome to my Mordekaiser build! I am a Morde main and have been for 3 years, since I started League. Mordekaiser is one of the most undervalued champions in League, and is one of the least played champions. Good. Let people underestimate the power of the Master of Metal.
The Murder King has the strongest non-ult ability damage in the game ( with his 3rd Q), and can do MASSIVE damage while still building tanky. He can be built in almost any way in order to counter most team compositions, and his R is a game changer as it transforms the enemy carry into your own, turning a 5v5 into a 6v4 massacre....
Also, the Dragon Ghost.... whenever Morde is on the Rift, losing Dragon to his team means losing 2 turrets, because the Dragon hits HARD. It's just broken.
Give Mordekaiser a try, you will be surprised at how hard you can carry with him!
I build mixed penetration reds as I feel they synergize well with the mixed damage builds I prefer. The only problem is they are expensive as hell. You can replace them for Magic Penetration or Armor, in case you want to take all scaling health runes as your yellows.
For blues, I take scaling CDR, as it gives you plenty of freedom in item selection. Also, for Mordekaiser, his abilities mean everything: damage, spellblade proc, phage proc to stick to enemies, and renewal of his shield, so it's crucial to get it!
As for yellows, I go for scaling health and just a tiny bit of armor. I can always build Zhonya, Randuin, Sunfire cape and Tabi to deal with this.
For quints, you can pick Move speed, ability power
E is mostly to proc Rylai and build shield. W does plenty of damage and heals you very well, max it first as it scales better with levels than with stats. Q scales ridiculously with stats, but you will not get to use it often early as it is telegraphed and you're not able to stick well. Max Q second. Max R whenever possible of course.
Stormraider's Surge is EXTREMELY strong on Mordekaiser. It procs VERY EASILY on you, giving you tons of movement speed and slow resist, both of which will allow you to reposition in teamfights or chase someone down with no problem!
You can go 0/18/12 or you can try for more damage with 12/18/0 as you prefer.
