CREEPING

EARLY LEVELS 1-5
Farming with ABILITY POWER champion generally means that you use skills to harass and farm because you basic attacks are pretty weak. So the technique for Malzahar is that to use Call of the Void near the last minion which is nearest to the enemy champion, Null Zone the group of creeps in frontof you the Malefic Visions the creep with the lowest health to replenish your mana.

LATE EARLY-MID GAME 6-10
Farming from late early to mid game (my grammar sucks) is pretty much the same only that there is an enemy champion. Say on level 6-8 you killed your lane opponent he/she is going to ask for help from either the jungler or a top laner. Now your hurt time is under way. To avoid getting killed use a defensive maneuver called T.H or tower hogging. which states that you stay near you tower's radius and farm from there, it's a pretty good defense move but since your lane opponents are now 2, 1 let's say tank and 1 AP carry. What do you do? Simple,since 2 of your abilities have silence and you have 2 opponents.2 and 2 means kill for you. Now you have to spam your skills to bring out your pet voidlings. Use the same methods as before kill when you are REALLY SURE. Now your purpose is to DELAY your 2 lane opponents from destroying the tower while your 2 team mates on top lane are killing the lone champion, your opponents are left with a choice defend top and lose mid or defend mid and lose top?

LATE GAME 11-18
Now as I personally see Malzahar benefits from quick games beacause late game all your enemies know what your moves are and are going to dodge it making you a bit weaker at late games. As I said before I never fought in a game which lasted 60+ minutes so I am going to update this portion when I do..

SECRET??

If you are playing Malzahar in low levels (the summoner level) your enemies will probably not know who you are or what you do. USE THIS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. Low level players will probably encounter commonly used champions like Master yi , Annie, Ryze or low priced champions. You could fool them by feinting
(pretend to punch in order to deceive or distract an opponent.) or in this case pretending to be weaker by T.H. or tower hogging(you literally hug your lane tower) to force your opponent to engage you if you leave the tower radius. Here's how it will go use Call of the Void since it has a delayed cast, then silence with Malefic Visions the Call of the Void should fire already, follow up with Null Zone then immediately use Nether Grasp before he/she escapes. If you do well then he/she would have 3-4 DoT (damage over time) effects and a cute voidling attacking him/her. If your target is still alive,hope that liandry will finish the job if not then your target will go back to base and you have free reign to farm

VERSUS

ABILITY POWER ENEMIES
AHRI
Her skills especially Charm can be a big pain...too bad she relies on skills. So use your Null Zone on creeps and your Malefic Visions on her so she'll back out and FARM BABY FARM! so here's how it goes silence-farm-harass-farm-silence. Don't forget to build some magic resist if she was fed on any lane

BASED ON LoL PLATFORM
Ahri's survivability is DRAMATICALLY REDUCED when her ultimate Spirit Rush is down.
Stand behind minions to make Charm difficult to land

AKALI
I have AKALI as one of my champions and all I say is that SHE IS PRETTY-FREAKING FAST when she uses Mark of the Assassin on you...good luck

BASED ON LoL PLATFORM
Akali can still be hit by area of effect spells (like our Null Zone) while invisible inside Twilight Shroud
Akali benefits from both Mejai's Soulstealer and Sword of the Occult. Return to base if low on health and has multiple charges of her ultimate Shadow Dance

ANIVIA
Is pretty frustrating because of her STUPID EGG (that sounded wrong), and when she is in the jungle her crystalize will take up much of your time to go around it

BASED ON LoL PLATFORM
Try to gank ANIVIA with multiple people when she is laningtoensure that her egg dies
If you are a ranged champion, stay far enough from ANIVIA to dodge Flash Frost easily.

ANNIE
Her stun and AoE (area of effect) spells will make you go back to base. Combined with her "adorable" Tibbers she is a force to be reckoned with

BASED ON LoL PLATFORM
Tibbers burn opposing units around himself. Try and keep your distance
Use smite when ANNIE summons Tibbers
Keep an eye out for the white, swirling power around her. Meaning her passive Pyromania is active and she will stun you

SUMMARY

By now you should be able to control Malzahar. You should know that the Void needs summoners like you to spread their chaos into the fields of justice. So fellow void paladin the fate of the void rests in your hands...


UPDATING SOON...
