how about skill seqeunce for morgana?
level 1, the Q for a possible level 1 team fight.
From here, max first the W, and the, it depends of the team. If they have something like a Karthus, max first the shield for save *sses. if not, max first Q for ToD.
PD: If you are wondering...In my last post i didn´t wrote the order of buying items, it´s just the items i buy xD
Max W. Second priority is either Q or E, depending on who your enemy is and if they're harassing you or not. Edit: Although as the guy before me said, start off with Q. It's better both for invading, and for pulling the blue / red. Your W at lvl 1 won't be able to auto-farm the caster minions for you anyway.
For build, start off bots + 3 HP pots, then either B when you have enough for double doran's, or you can take the GP10 route which I use, and B when you have enough for Phil Stone and HoG. You can also take a Kage's Lucky Pick if you have enough gold next time you B and you don't feel like you'll need your next item any time soon. Your next item would be Zhonya's Hourglass, because it's the item that synergizes best with your ultimate, so the sooner you have it, the better. After that Rabadon's Deathcap, then idfk, you could build a PD and you'd still be OP. No but seriously, I would go for Abyssal Scepter or Void staff. After that, you just build situationally. Athene's Unholy Grail, Guardian Angel and Frozen Heart are all viable options. Your item doesn't need to give you much AP because your spells already have extremely high base damage, and you already do plenty of damage with the AP you already have, which should be around 400-500. I wouldn't suggest WotA though, Morgana's spell vamp is more of a way of sustaining herself in laning phase to afk farm, not to make her an amazing team-fighter. Her spells all have very long cooldowns, so she won't be making much use of the spell vamp in team-fights, which is what you want to be itemizing for with any champion.
My item build for Morgana tends to go something like this:
Boots of Speed + 3 x Health Potion -> Philosopher's Stone -> Heart of Gold -> Sorcerer's Shoes + Doran's Ring -> Rod of Ages -> Zhonya's Hourglass -> Rabadon's Deathcap.
I would usually sneak in a Chalice of Harmony somewhere in there if I feel that the laning phase would take a while, if not then I find myself often sustained enough with Philo and maybe one or two Mana Potions. You can also rush your Zhonya's if you need the active early on to initiate team fights.
Following that, I build situationally:
Void Staff, if they build MR.
Frozen Heart, for survivability against AD.
Abyssal Scepter, for survivability against AP.
Athene's Unholy Grail, massive mana regen OP.
Will of the Ancients, only built really late in the game since she already has innate spell vamp.
This is how I build her myself, mostly thanks to throatslasher for introducing a lot of us to GP10 mid Morg.
I used to build her with:
Boots of Speed + 3 x Health Potion -> 2 x Doran's Ring -> Sorcerer's Shoes -> Rod of Ages -> Zhonya's Hourglass -> Rabadon's Deathcap -> Whatever is needed
But I have found much more success with the GP10 build so far.
As for skill sequence, I prioritize W. While I max Q or E depending on who I'm laning against or who's the threat.
