Hello. This is my Malzahar build. It is for carrying teams, not for pushing lanes.

The pusher is the guy that knocks down the turret, charges the team fights, ect. not a tank though, not exactly.

The carry is the guy that helps push lanes and tells team wat to do, and goes mid at start, hopefully gets fed enough to kill anyone 1 vs 1. The carry is the guy that does the DAMAGE.

If you tried pushing with a carry you would be immediately focused on and dead. All it takes is a stun, silence, disable, anything!

Anyways the carry is the guy racks up those kills, scores the ace, tells the team when to push, when to get baron. Carry is the leader.

Malzahar is a hard champion. Very hard. I haven't mastered him yet. Probably won't for a while. I can't count how many times I miss Call of the Void xD. First thing first! How to play:

Make sure you call mid fast as you can. If anyone says "hell no" or "malz mid? no let me" or something like that QUEUE DODGE IT.... It will save you from a horrible game of constant arguing and flames. Also queue dodge if someone calls mid before you do. I have found that the boots are most helpful. After many games with Doran Ring or Boots.

120 hp - regen is what counts
10 ap - 10 ap is not going to make much of a difference.
5 mana per 5 sec - this is very helpful, but you don't NEED it.
If you are noob with Malzahar, take the doran ring. If you consider yourself already pretty good and understand him well take the boots.

If you DO take the Ring, still get Sorcerer boots, and after you get Lich Bane sell the ring and continue the build normally.

There is so much to tell ugh I shall keep going...

Stay mid, if you can kill your enemy but hes staying too far back and you can't get him, go ganking! If your enemy is too powerful for you, just defend mid. If you gank, your gonna get ganked by your mid enemy and die.
Whenever you have spare gold get a ward or buy a elixir. They help SOOOO much!

Malz needs to spam his abilities alot thats why archangel is important
Zhonya Ring is an excellent item because of it's awesome AP boost
Your enemies probably have enough MR to withstand you by now (maybe) so get the Void Staff it will help ALOT.
Mejai Soulstealer is a good item. Not amazing, but good. IT is the best way to finish the build, by my calculations.
Rylai Crystal Scepter is more of a pusher item than a Carry item that's why you don't want that.

When you finish the build stock up on all the elixirs, you automatically consume them. Great way to spend the gold you have after you finish your build!

Opps I never said Why boots are better than Ring. Boots = better coz:
1. avoid harrassment more
2. chase better
3. mooooooooooooooooooooooooove faaaaaaaaa***sssssssttttttterrrrr
4. movement quins plus boots = awesome early move speed, such a nice advantage

Masteries! Ugh... 30 minutes of mathematical calculations for those. I did NOT pull them out of my ***! (like most ppl do)

I know that Malz gets very mana hungry early game.... but by my calculations,

3/3 Perseverance gives Malzahar just 1 mana regenerated every 30 ******* seconds. Horrible.

Source: Lol Wiki contains exact specs of stats to champions.
Example, the hp regen:

0.55 times 17 plus 5.05 = 14.4
4 percent of 14.4 = 0.576
14.4 plus 0.576 = 14.97600 per 5 secs at lvl 18

4 percent of 5.05 = 0.202
5.05 plus 0.202 = 5.25200 per 5 sec at lvl 1

doesn't it sound good? look at it this way:

5.05 divided by 5 = 1.01 hp per 1 second
1.01 times 30 = 30.3 hp per 30 seconds

5.25200 divided by 5 = 1.0504 hp per 1 second
1.0504 times 30 = 31.51200 hp per 30 seconds

That means you get 1.21200 health per 30 seconds.

30 seconds is alot, and you can think, *well by the end of the game its alot* but then you have to realize *it doesn't help in any 1 situation*

Lol I have OCD and I don't know if it's a gift or a curse. XD. But this is the first time I have calculated my build stats so extremely. Wanted people to see how much effort I make to my builds I guess.

Sorry for grammar, that's when I get lazy :^P

Any suggestions to make this build better would be alot BETTER than a down vote. So please, comment!
