i only got maokai in urf and i like him when i spam the toss and i never get out of hp with his passive of healing, i'd like to go full ap maokai mid i can or its only a top champ? this build is so good as tank loved it, but why attack speed marks and not ability power or attack damage?.

Yeah you can go ap maokai I think that's actually pretty strong in urf lol but I think tank is better in summoners rift but if you're just playing him for fun ap does work ok. Attack speed reds for dueling you auto attack a lot in tank matchups so it's more damage then running magic pen or attack damage reds.

i wanna play maokai support can i use the same runes for support or i go for tank quints? because i loved to see how maokai poke and can save the bush from ganks like shaco or rengar or eveline the invisible ones so the toss can see them or not?

Yeah I'd probably go armor quints as well as armor marks if I wanted to play him support. and no the saplings don't see the invisible champs, also you could maybe go AP quints if you're trying to do a lot of damage in lane.

can Maokai go jungle or can he go well in the other lane? will you make a guide for Maokai Jungle?

yeah Maokai can go jungle and maybe support as well but I wouldn't recommend him support, I actually think jungle is probably the best role for him right now just because of how good cinderhulk is, but I still believe he is a good pick for top lane. As far as making a guide for Maokai jungle I probably won't just because this guide took a lot of time to make and a lot of the info would be the same for him jungle besides just jungle routes and when to gank and maybe a few item changes.

i don't understand the not for the full enemy AP build, there mention Zzrot is not good and GA (as for Guardian Angle?) if so i don't see it put to the list as well?

yeah sorry it's because GA was updated to give attack damage now and it's not very good on AP tanks but I haven't updated the wording in the notes yet.

Not so sure about sunfire being the best start rn. think glory into visage / bramble / stoneplate might be the meta build

I Am Goliath (6) | August 16, 2017 8:55pm
Yeah I agree with the glory / visage / stoneplate. I don't think sunfire is too bad right now but I stil need to test it more, I don't think bramble is very strong unless you're against somebody that heals (fiora, tryndamere, etc.)

Great guide, I love it. I just picked up Maokai, and I played him jungle and had a lot of fun with him. I was wondering what you do for jungle Mao, like which boots, jungle items, etc.

I Am Goliath (6) | August 16, 2017 8:53pm
Yeah I think jungle maokai is very strong right now and probably better then top lane at this point in time, for boots you pretty much always want ninja tabi's because they're just too cost effective, for jungle items righteous glory is great for ganking as well as knights vow to help out your ADC. For the smite item I go the vision one and ward up for my team unless they have two tanks then I go the red one (challenging smite i think it's called).
