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.

Flash/Ignite hands down.

Flash/Ignite hands down.


Some people like ghost on mord, but more often than not if you're getting kited ghost generally won't help. Flash lets you surprise with flash q and help gib squishies.
Ignite is also standard but stacks insanely well with his ult.

Items

Items


Spectral Wraith is too efficient to not get and if you have spell vamp runes/masteries you'll find yourself healing ridiculously late game. Liandry's stacks with his w incredibly well to the point you can use it for your main damage source if you decide to go tanky. If you're doing well you can go offensive, and if you're struggling go defensive. Mord is a secret OP champ when it comes to tankiness.

Skill Order

Skill Order


R>E>W>Q
W is much more useful than Q. It does more damage than Q and it gives you passive armor and magic resist. And if you're against a ranged champion don't expect to Q ever. AND its your best/only chance at surviving ganks (as it keeps hitting them and shielding you as you run) or hard cc because it keeps shielding/healing even when you can't do anything.

9/10/11 generally because he does well with the magic pen and the spell vamp is critical for his first few levels before you have a spectral wraith.

6/13/11 if you are against an auto attacker like riven because with doran's shield you'll be surprised how tanky you become.

Runes

Runes


mpen reds/armor yellow/ mr blues (standard defensive ap and mord does extremely well with resistances)
Spell vamp quints stack with vampirism mastery to give you 9% spell vamp... IMMENSELY helps mord before you get spectral wraith. Its the difference between healing off of your abilities or taking damage from them. You can kill yourself early game if you don't have them and you are careless with your skills.

General Gameplay Tips

General Gameplay tips


In lane : harass all day long with E... don't be afraid to use W offensively either. Ward well and you'll be able to take their turret in no time. You can often get kills because people stay too long and don't expect the damage from a flash+q+e+ult+ignite combo.

Teamfights : ult / gib carry if you can and steal ghost. GG if you can. This is really easy in bronze/silver making him somewhat OP in these elos.

Counters/Weaknesses

Counters/Weaknesses


He can be kited for days if people know what they are doing, and I really hate rylai's on him because he does so much better with resistances than hp (even though it would help liandry's).

Counter picks to watch out for are champions with a LOT of high damage AND sustain OR safety.

Cassiopeia is a prime example of this as you can't really hit her except for an occasional E and she'll destroy you. Fortunately, nobody plays her and if they do, they don't play her top.
Tryndamere is a nightmare once he gets enough sustain because he will beat you in an all in contest and if he goes a ravenous hydra or bloodthirster, no damage you do to him will stick. Renekton can be a terror as well as he bursts right through your shield.

Besides that, you'll be surprised how few champions can actually trade with Mordekaiser and in the lower elos people will try anyway and you'll soon be finding yourself dominating.
