[12.14] Morgana Freeman Mid/Support/Jung Builds

By Xexzuz
Hi there, my name is Xexzuz and this is my guide on Morgana. I am a level 229 and I am currently a high silver player (Silver 2/Silver 1), I've played 49 games in ranked with Morgana mid with a 59% win rate and 27 games support with a 56% win rate, and in normals I've played Morgana mid with the new items around 16 times with a 69% win rate. Currently I have 111,711 mastery points on Morgana and I've mainly been playing her since season 10.

I really like Morgana and I now consider her my main champ, she is a great pick for your team no matter where you play her (I have found in my time playing her that you can play Morgana in any role from top to bottom), you provide very high cc for your team and it can be tilting for the enemy team. Morgana mid is currently my favorite role while playing her, many people underestimate her damage and her ability to 1v2. She is a very strong solo laner despite her recent nerfs to her W, you can farm very easily and can quickly snowball the lane out of control.
Morgana Updates:
This section will be where I'll put any information about Morgana (nerfs, changes,etc.) and my opinions on Morgan's current situation

MORGANA JUNGLE BUFFS/NERFS LIVE! The original buffs to morgana jungle got tuned down a bit, but she still has a very very strong clear and fits pretty well with the current jungle meta. Morgana jungles has great sustainability with these buffs in the jungle so your clears will be very healthy. These buffs also have potential to help morgana in other roles as well, for morgana mid you can clear out the enemy jungles camps (preferably chickens) more safely and a lot quicker. The jungle buffs can also help out support morgana, you'll be able to help out more with your W on drags and you can also solo camps with support items relatively fast. Even after the nerfs to morgana jungle she still stands as a very solid pick in the jungle, he clear is slowed a bit more but you should have no problem still maintaining a fast and healthy clear. Just remember that just because she's not broken doesn't mean she's a bad pick.

MORGANA NERFS LIVE! These nerfs intended to target Morgana mid, they nerfed the damage on her W a bit but as long as you build liandry's and demonic's you don't really feel the nerfs too much. These nerfs also affect Morgana jungle but same with mid, if you build liandry's and demonic's you don't feel the nerfs too bad. However these nerfs do cause luden's to be a bit less viable as your W wont be anywhere near the damage it used to be without liandry's so I recommend the liandry's demonic's build for mid and jungle. These nerfs hardly affect Morgana support, they just took away a bit of poke from your W but that wont affect Morgana support much, just make sure you land those Qs.
Morgana is still a very strong pick across the board for mid jungle and support, and if you love playing morgana mid/jungle then don't let these nerfs discourage you. She is and will continue to be a very strong pick this season.
Pros / Cons:
  • High CC
  • High Damage
  • Great teamfighting potential
  • Peel for you teammates
  • Easy farming (W)
  • Great against the current meta
  • Reliant on hitting Q's
  • Without liandry's W's feel weak
  • Likely to get nerfed again (lets hope not)

If i'm being completly honest, Morgana is really good right now (borderline broken). She counters most assassins as long as you can hit your Q's, she counters tanks as long as you build liandry's, and can usually out duel mages if you block their CC with your E. You're farming as a solo laner is still very strong with the liandry's demonic's build (My personal recommendation build), and with all this said I wouldn't be surprised if she gets another nerf, but we can only hope she wont. Even after the nerfs my first game with the nerfs lives (morgana mid) I went 13/6/14 so I can't say I feel the nerfs too hard.
Team Composition (Synergies / Counters):
  • Any CC heavy team
  • Champs with CC (So you can chain CC)
  • Leona is a very strong teammate to have
  • Jhin works very well with you
  • A team with at least 1 frontline so you can R more easily
  • Teams with a lot of hard CC (Lux, leona, pyke, etc.)
  • Full tank teams can be difficult late game (EX: Galio, Malphite, Zac, Naut)
  • Fizz is generally a harder match up for Morgana

I don't really know how to put the runes visuals in here with the code so here's a pdf if you want to view it.

These runes are my standard runes that I take the most for every role, you get good poke with arcane comet, manaflow band helps you out greatly for the early game with your mana issues, you can take transcendence or absolute focus I personally take transcendence because your build doesn't have much ability haste so it helps your cooldown quite a bit. You need to take scorch for the extra burn damage. Then you want cheap shot for bonus Q damage and ravenous hunter for some extra omnivamp. Then I always take adaptive/adaptive/armor for the baby runes.

Now this is only my personal go to rune page as I find it to bring the most success and constant results, if you want to look at my other rune pages I recommend, scroll up to the top and check them out!
Summoner Spells/Items:
I go over these pretty in depth in the "notes" part of every item block/summoner spells and there I tell you when/why you should use certain items as well as my personal opinions on the item choices. Feel free to check them out in there!

Just note that I feel Liandry's and Demonic's are Morgana's best options for every role other than support, which you would take Imperial Mandate and cosmic drive.
Item Set Exports:
If you want my in game item page for morgana mid you can copy this export and import it into league(I will be working on getting around to make exports for jungle and support too):

{"title":"Morgan Freeman","associatedMaps":[11],"associatedChampions":[25],"blocks":[{"items":[{"id":"1056","count":1},{"id":"2003","count":2},{"id":"3340","count":1},{"id":"2055","count":1}],"type":"Starmting Items"},{"items":[{"id":"3802","count":1},{"id":"2031","count":1},{"id":"1082","count":1},{"id":"1001","count":1}],"type":"First Back/Ahead Items"},{"items":[{"id":"6653","count":1},{"id":"6656","count":1},{"id":"3020","count":1}],"type":"First Item + Boots (Damage or CC)"},{"items":[{"id":"4637","count":1},{"id":"3157","count":1}],"type":"Essential Items"},{"items":[{"id":"3089","count":1},{"id":"3116","count":1},{"id":"4628","count":1},{"id":"3165","count":1},{"id":"3135","count":1}],"type":"Last Item Choices (Choose 2)"},{"items":[{"id":"3041","count":1}],"type":"Upgrade If Far Ahead"}]}
Ability Explanation:
Your Q is your bread and butter and as long as you hit you Q you can do some major damage with a follow up W, however if you miss your Q you can get punished very hard. Your Q will decide your fate.

W also known as auto farming simulator is your farming tool throughout the entire game and when you land a Q use your W immediately and you will chunk them for a lot of their HP. This ability is very useful in teamfights and taking objectives, you can even solo drakes if it's safe to do.

You want to use this to win trades in 1v1s so you dont get CCd and if you get ganked by a hecarim or kayn then it is fairly easy to escape. Later in the game you want to use your E on yourself so you can safely get it ult range, or use it to make sure your carry doesn't die because of an ashe ult or something like that.

Your ultimate is your win fight button, once you get on top of the enemy team mid fight ult and then zonyah's and they have two option, stay and lose fight or run, and either of those will help you win the fight. Also don't be afraid to use your ult you escape a gank or to win a 1v1.
Stages of the Game:
Lane phase/Early game: Pretty straight forward, farm until you get lost chapter, if they are overly aggressive punish them with Q + W. If your laner doesn't have hard CC then put 2 points into W at level 3 and get your E level 4. And aim for around 80-100 CS at 10 mins which isn't too hard to do with morgana. Watch the mini map during early game very hard because your rotation can lead to a snowball for your team.

Mid game: This is where you will shine the brightest, you can roam bot for some pressure for drags during this time and teamfighting is going to happen a lot in the mid game. Make sure you play the teamfights right and get good ults down, aim to get shutdowns during this time to stop their snowballs, it would be a good idea to purchase a dark seal during mid game so you get a bigger lead for winning teamfights.

Late game: If you get into late game with morgana you should be nearing or at full build and you will be very strong. But you need to play the late game carefully, one bad teamfight or you getting caught out could cost the game for your team. If you're ahead focus on getting drags if you need them and getting outer base turrets to apply more pressure on the enemy. Try getting buffs during this time so you can be stronger in teamfights and make sure you take care of any split pushers because you can defend base easily in a 1v1. Try to play it safe and wait for the enemy team to engage on your team.
Hope this guide has helped you in some way for playing Morgana and I will continue to be updating and working on my guide to get you guys the current state of morgana. Hope you enjoyed and learned something, thank you all for the support by reading. Now go out there and hit those Q's, good luck.
