[10.14] Welcome to Oblivion - CDRKaiser

By Speed_Fire2

Hello and thank you for reading my First Guide!

I'm Speedfire2, a Mordekaiser enthusiast (But not one-trick) With currently 88 thousand Mastery Points (Its not much, I know) I played Mordekaiser quite a bit with him before the rework, but post-rework, I've been using him to climb, and now you can to!
This guide is meant to explain how this build works, Why you should use it, and why its worth your time to at least try it.
Strengths and Weaknesses Back to Top


  • Strong Early, Mid and Late Game
  • Tanky
  • Easy to learn but High Skill Cap
  • Easy to hit skillshots once used to him


  • Low Mobility
  • Kitable
  • If new, Skillshots can be hard to hit.
Items Back to Top
The first core item of this built, Nashor's tooth is a great pick for Mordekaiser, It gives him 20% CDR, Attack Speed and AP, three stats he utilises very well, This is the item I often times finish first, and it has lead me to many wins.
Another great core item for Mordekaiser, Protobelt gives Mordekaiser another 10% CDR, as well as AP and health, if he has Nashor's Tooth as well, then he has hit 30% CDR on just two items, allowing him to use his Q Obliterate quite often, and keep up both his passive and damage, as well as poke.
This one of the first Non-Core Items, but I pick it up almost every game, the slow combined with the health and AP allow Mordekaiser to chase and kill his enemies
This is one of those items which I only pick up on rare occasions, usually when facing a incredibly heavy tank team, But that is quite rare, While the burn is nice and the starts synergise well, Mordekaiser already has the ability to shred people without, SO in the end it falls off and becomes a bundle of stats, hency why I rarely take it
Both boots are good for separate situations, I usually take Merc Treads when dealing with a heavy cc team, Otherwise I take Ninja Tabi, Only time I wont is if they are somehow a full AP team with little to no CC
Ah, The Support items, Well heres the first one, Dead Man's Plate is one of the best choices for Mordekaiser, The passive momentum build up allows for him to catch up to the trickier enemies and smash in their heads!
Spirit Visage is another one of those support items, And while it has good stats, the most important part of it is the ability to increase heals by 30%, thats huge! And its on a tank item, making it very good for our old boy Mordekaiser
The item that all mage loves, Rabadon's Deathcap is an item that works best when you have a lot of AP, and I do mean, a lot, because of this it tends to fall flat for Mordekaiser Since this build is more focused on attacking often instead of one super strong attack. But this doesn't mean its useless! If you ever face a team that has little to no mag resistance, then this item is a holy grace that will melt them like a hot mace through butter.
Morellonomicon is the anti heal item in this build, Its meant to be taken when dealing with a very sustain heavy team, whether this is through lifesteal, Healing, or champions with a lot of base sustain, Its one of those items you build early but you only build it when needed.
This has to be my least taken item from the entire build, and yet, I can't help but be scared of this item, It works best when you are the pillar of the team, the one carrying the game, Build this item to allow you to reenter the fight as soon as possible without backing, It can also replace Spirit Visage against an all AD Team!
Thanks for Reading! Back to Top
Thank you for taking the time to go through this Guide/Build, I will continue to update this But before I go, Have a few tricks you can do with Mordekaiser
  • Mordekaiser's E can be used to push enemies from him when in a pinch, place the cursor slightly in front of Mordekaiser towards the path your walking to get away, and then Press E, the hand will appear and pull all enemies behind Mordekaiser Further away!
  • Mordekaiser's R grants a massive slow to the enemy chasing you when you use it, you can use this to slow down an enemy to hit them with your E (Make sure to E first then ult!) Or to back them off if they planned on using an AA Reset.
  • You can Teleport while in your Death Realm!, Yes this does work, if you feel unsafe and know that you will be attacked one your out, start teleporting to a tower while in your death realm, This will break the realm once the teleport finishes, placing you in a safe place (hopefully)
