Abilities

Iron Man

Iron Man is Mordekaisers passive ability which allows you to charge shield points which are used to protect your health bar by acting as a soak damage. Take note that the maximum shield points are based on the amount of armor and magic resist you have. So the more armor and MR you have, the larger your soak shield, and the longer you will live. Who can complain with that?!


Mace of Spades

Mace of Spades Charges your Mace and on the next hit Throws 3 additional maces into surrounding enemies. This ability is Great for farming and is useful as an additional damage spike in group battles. However it is the weakest of all your abilities.


Creeping Death

Creeping Death is a defensive and offensive ability. it can be cast on yourself, on allied champions or on allied minions. This ability allows you to stand in the middle of entire minion waves and not only take little to no damage, but build your shield while quickly destroying even multiple groups of minions. if you play defensively it would be wise to cast your Creeping Death on laneing partners or minions, and if you play Mordekaiser aggressively(which in my opinion is the right way to play him) you will almost always be casting this ability on yourself(which you can do by pressing Alt+W).



Siphon of Destruction

Siphon of Destruction is your Bread and Butter, Staple opener of life. If it moves? Shove maces up its ***. the more people it hits the better. Keep in mind that this ability is optimal for building your shield due to its high AoE damage output.



Children of the Grave

Children of the Grave is a strange ult. it heals you with Hot, damages them with DoT, and if they die while its active, you gain a ghost pet of the killed champion that you may control.(Alt clicking while the ghost pet is alive will cause it to move somewhere or attack anything you desire.)
Effective for additional survivability(cast it on the enemy champion with the most health at the beginning of a team fight) or for finishing off the fleeing champions.(works well in conjuncture with ignite.)

3v3 Items

OK Items! WHY? ill tell you...


Obviously we will be starting off with

Doran's Shield
and a

Health Pot

This item is good for the additional armor, Health and Health Regen for the early game. You will most likely sell this item later to help build better armor pieces, but for early game its a good help in survivability.

Next i would go with building my

Boots of Swiftness

These are important for chasing down enemies getting away from them more effectively.
many people would go with Sorc Boots however in a 3v3 you will be able to have more survivability, because of the smaller team fights, to live longer allowing yourself to deal more damage without the extra magic pen. Also if you are focusing on Wormog's Armor over Rylai's Crystal Scepter the extra speed will make up for having no CC early on.

However if your teammates have good CC Then you Should take the

Sorcerer's Shoes.

After i Have my Boots i will go strait to

Giants belt for the extra health to Build into My

Sunfire Cape.
This is the most important item for a successful Mordekaiser in 3s or 5s. after boots this will ALWAYS be your first item.

After your sunfire cape it is really a matter of reading the game dynamic. Are you fighting AD? AP? Both?

The answer to that question will really dictate what items you will go to next.

If you are playing a game with an over fed AD character like Trynd, Master Yi, Warwick or champions like that. You will want to go directly to

Thornmail.
This item will Shred ANY AD/AS Character you come up against.

If You are Playing a Game with an overpowering AP Nuker, You will want to go with

Force of Nature.
This item will save you from being eaten alive by Nuke combos, as well as yielding great Health Regen and Additional Movement speed.

Once you've decided which of these items to get its up to you to decide whether to go for damage output, Defense or health.

7 times out of 10 i will go for the

Warmog's Armor next.
Many people say that you should not get Warmog's if you are playing as Mord, however in playing many games of 3s, i have solo'd trip kills because of Warmogs. True, it doesn't yield the Armor bonus for your shield, but in late game fights you will most likely not max your shield out often enough that it would yield more survivability than the additional 920 to 1370 health that comes from Warmog's Armor. I find the additional health much more beneficial, especially if you find yourself in a 1v1 situation or if the opposing team is spread out enough to evade all getting caught in your siphon.

however if you don't think you need Warmog's Armor,

Rylai's Crystal Scepter is a good alternative especially when used in conjunction with a

Frozen Mallet.

These two items together are quite the CC Combo. however if you are only going to get one of them i would recommend the Frozen Mallet over Rylai's Crystal Scepter.

To finish it all up i would Build either

Guardian Angel or

Abyssal Scepter.

Guardian Angel is good if you decide you need the extra Armor and Magic Resist. Also who can complain with a free Res every 5 minutes. Go for Abyssal Scepter if you are having no problems staying alive. Its good for additional MR and it gives you a bit more damage output which is always a good thing.

5v5 Items

the 5s Item Build is Quite similar to the 3s however i would favor a few of the other optional items in the 3s build.

We will be starting off with

Doran's Shield
and a

Health Pot

This item is good for the additional armor, Health and Health Regen for the early game. You will most likely sell this item later to help build better armor pieces, but for early game its a good help in survivability.

Next i would go with building my

Sorcerer's Shoes

These are important for the additional move speed as well as a good MP Boost to your damage output.

After i Have my Boots i will go strait to

Giants belt for the extra health to Build into My

Sunfire Cape.
This is the most important item for a successful Mordekaiser in 3s or 5s. after boots this will ALWAYS be your first item.

After your sunfire cape it is really a matter of reading the game dynamic. Are you fighting AD? AP? Both?

The answer to that question will really dictate what items you will go to next.

If you are playing a game With a half and half or AP Stacked team you should go strait to

Force of Nature.
This item will Really help attribute to your mid and late survivability.

If You are Playing a Game stacked with AD/AS champions, You will want to go with

Thornmail.
This item will help to shred anyone dumb enough to try and solo you, or if they decide to focus you, your Sunfire Cape And your Thornmail together will not help their survivability at all in a team fight.

Once you've figured out which of these items to get its up to you to decide whether to go for damage output, Defense or health.

In an AD/AS stacked team i will try to go directly to

Randuin's Omen next. this item will also help in lowering the Movement and AS of anyone who decides to hit you.

If your Fighting an AP or half and half team i would Just simply skip getting Randuin's Omen.

With my next item i will usually go towards

Guardian Angel earlier in the game to help with survivability.

after this is all taken care of

Rylai's Crystal Scepter is a good CC item in team fights as well as

Frozen Mallet.

These two items together are quite the CC Combo. however if you are only going to get one of them i would recommend the Frozen Mallet over Rylai's Crystal Scepter. these are not bad for a couple of last items however if you decide to not get both a good last item alternative can be either

Banshee's Veil or

Frozen Heart.

Banshee's veil is good if you decide you need the extra Magic Resist. Also who can complain with a free Spell Block every 30 seconds.
Frozen Heart is good if you are still having issues with AD/AS champions. It Adds to your armor Takes away some of their attack speed, as well as giving you some nice Cooldown reduction.

Runes

My rune choices for 3s favor dodge more than movement speed. based mostly on the fact that i would get Boots of Swiftness over Sorc Boots

in 5s i would take x3 over x3

other than that i would not change anything for the rune builds.

Summary

If you play smart and decide what items to get based on your own in game situations, then you will always be more successful, than if you just get the listed items in this or other guides. There are a few items i didn't mention above that may be more useful in certain situations, but you will have to figure those out for yourself, this is just a guide to help you learn the right starting paths for this Champion.

Credit goes out to TheUn4givenRage for being the first and most informative Mordekaiser guide i read out there, and setting me on the path to discovering him for myself. His guide taught me a lot about the game itself let alone Mordekaiser.

Hope it helped you out!
