Introduction

Hey guys! SO I've gotten pretty well with Maokai now using the build over and over "Maokai the only tree to be afraid of" which I would still love you guys to check that build out primarily for this build is to fool around and try out. I've done a few games with this hybrid build of attack speed/ability power and well it proved its worth tremendously. Just make sure you let your teammates know before hand that you are going hybrid and for them to get a main tank. Don't let them think for a second you are the tank. You will be playing as a hybrid dps/support build. So try this out, sit back and watch you succeed (hopefully if you play smart).

Runes

The runes I am running with are:
Greater Mark of Insightx9
Greater Seal of Replenishmentx9
Greater Glyph of Focusx9
Greater Quintessence of Fortitudex3

Pretty much like the last build you want the mp5 and health. For this build cooldown reduction and magic pen do wonders!

Masteries

I go with the standard 9/0/21 build taking imp ghost and clarity masteries to run longer and give mana to my teammates during the battle.

Items

Items that I have chosen are pretty standard for any hybrid to pick, it gives the attack speed Maokai needs as well as the ability power. I took Sunfire cape for a bit more health and armor and when you have gotten your items get rid of your beserker boots and snag merc treads or any boots that you please. The berserker boots are only good at the start to beef up your attack speed.

Skill Sequence

It's the same skill sequence as my last build. Level up your sap toss first, followed by your Twisted advanced, then your knock back. (of course level your ult every time you gain access to do so.

Summoner Spells

Ghost and Clarity are my choice for this build, why you ask? well ghost is a good chase/run spell to use. CLarity is VERY helpful with this build to start out with. Also gives your team some mana back to help make those teamfights lean more your way.

Summary

All in all this build is fun, unique and brings a lot of damage to the table. Like I said this isn't the main build I recommend if you're wanting to be a tanky support hero. It's for fun to spice up Maokai's life! Try it out and gimme your comments on what you think about it.
