Threats & Synergies
If you're first pick, always ban him. If you're not first pick make sure whoever is bans him. If they don't ban him pick him and call jungle. If no one dodges, dodge at last second.
Same as above but pick the donger, not him. Never pick teemo.
This guide will teach you some strategies with Mordekaiser. Not even lcs players are aware that these exist or he would be 100% pick/ban. Hopefully with enough practice you will be able to reach close to my skill level with Mordekaiser.
I've included proof of my mastery of Mordekaiser in the picture below of my match history. I crossed out the matches below because honestly they weren't that important and my team all surrendered even though I had like 30 kills in 20 minutes. Also I strayed from the build and summoner spells in the example. Never do that, but I was just showing how even when I use a bad build and bad summoner spell like Flash, I can still dominate.
Teleport is important because you have to get back to lane as fast as possible to keep killing your laner.
Flash is a terrible choice because you never need it. Your q and e pretty much have 1,000 range so you never need to flash towards them. You also never need to flash away from them because Mordekaiser never needs to run.
Q: Mace of Spades
Super good. Looks badass when he slams people with the club, has like 1,000 range and instantly deletes people. Very macho.
W: Creeping Death
Despite the cool name, honestly it's terrible. Never use it. All it does is make a shield, but like I've said before, Mordekaiser doesn't need defense because you instantly delete people.
E: Siphon of Destruction
Best skill in the game hands down. During laning phase mash the E button and win. Don't even worry about the health cost, you do way more damage so it doesn't even matter.
R: Children of the Grave
This ult is amazing, you can make someone your slave and have them attack things. When they're under your command they taunt with you, so spam taunt to make your enemies afraid of you.
- Never buy wards. This is a big one, I see a lot of people buying the trinket and even sometimes sight wards and vision wards if they're really bad. Never do this because it's a waste of gold and time, and why would you want vision when you can just destroy anyone who ambushes you? If your team tries to tell you to buy wards mute them and report them immediately.
- During laning phase, don't worry about going under their tower to hit them with q, towers do like 0 damage anyway and your q does like thousands so it's worth it to run under tower and hit them.
- Always buy max health pots when you back, because then you can keep spamming E and you won't have to back at all. That's a reason not to buy wards, you need health pots 24/7.
- Don't worry about ganks. Always push the lane super far to their tower so you can get free hits with q under their tower. The enemy jungler is terrible usually so you can just get a double kill when they gank. They most likely won't gank though because they're scared of you.
