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.
Malzahar is a wonderful character,Hes has the ability to go lane where ever the team put him but i would recommend mid if no other character is better at mid then him E.G(Annie/Kog'Mag/Caitlyn) Malzahar is a very unique player with him being able to support and kill hes one of the best in my opinion. If you have brought malzahar and want to know how to use him follow the guide that ive set out and you will have no problem learing him.
Malzahar is my main and faviorite character in the game. Hes currently 6,300Ip and 975rp, Malzahar is a beautiful caster.Malzahar is very difficult to play but enjoyable to play.Here are some pros and cons to using him.
High Ap Spells
Call of the Void hard to aim and delay while using it
Malzahar's Voidling is pointless because it's uncontrolable
Biggest Con is Malzahar have no escape mechanism which leave him to be easily ganked.
I use Flash and Ingite for early kills during the early stages of the game
Flash - Flash is a very helpfull spell with malzahar because hes not very fast to be able to escape without dying.
Ingite - Combinding ingite and malefic vision normally Guarantees a great early kill if the champion your vsing has been harrassed.
Heal - I recommend this for beginners with malzahar because he is very squishy champion
Ghost - If you are not at level 12 this is the alternative to using flash helps u get out of sticky situations
I Wouldnt Recommnend any other spells because i find they dont help you at all with Malzahar
Saying that you are in mid and u only have one champion to defend againest "Call Of The Void" and "Malefic Vision" they are both great harrassing ability's early game. Ingite and Malefic Vision at lvl 3 takes the defending champion down to about 200hp then using Call of The Void may not Guarantee you the kill but will make the defending champion retreat or may recall.
Mid Game is where the Ap Damage comes in to play,Hoping you have all abilitys unlocked using Malefic Vision,Null Void and Nether Grasp one after the other to insure the kill if the champion is not dead ingite and call of the void will ensure that. Some Champion with High Hp or Shields i recommend to back away untill they use the shield because u will not kill that champion. Nether Grasp is also a great way to help your team gank someone because of it stopping the character in its place they will be killed with 5 man gank or 3 man gank.
late game i suggest just suppoting your team with Null Zone while spamming Malefic Vision but stay behind your team to ensure your escape path is clear. In late game have all ability's at max is very good to ensure your safety.
Well With Malzahar Farming is needed being mid can help with farming pushing the defending champion out of the lane then using Null Zone to Farm your minions is a great way to rack up Experience before you opposing champion gets back to the lane. Farming can also help with reaching level 18 if your not being fed be the defending champion.
The Runes ive set out are a progressing rune setup over time ill be editing this setup to suit Malzahar's guide. All Games playing with this setup ive done well but not legendary ive had such games as 16/3/13,25/0/12 and 19/2/24.
I want to say sorry for my poor grammer and if you think my guide needs to be improve please leave a comment and give me some feedback and be nice first ever guide
