Malzahar, The Prophet of the Void
He ventured into the desert without supplies, drawn by the lure of a specious charm. His destination: a lost civilization to the east, known to ancient texts as Icathia. Few believed such a place ever existed, and those who did were certain that the sands had long since devoured whatever remained. When Malzahar's cracked feet finally failed him, he found himself kneeling at the base of a bizarre crumbling obelisk. Beyond it lay the alien geometry of a ruined city and the giant decaying idols of dark and horrific gods. His eyes, seeing what others cannot, and what none should, were filled with the essence of the Void. His once shifting visions of the future were replaced with the immutable promise of Valoran beset by creatures of the Void. Standing alone, but not alone, amidst the echoing dunes, he noticed the familiar voice escape his own lips in a parched rasp, bearing three words whose weight trembled his knees. League of Legends. Now infused with the power of the void itself, Malzahar set off to the north to seek his fate.
''The land may melt, the sea may swell, the sky may fall... but They will come.''
1.) AP = Ability power (spells based on a high amount of ability power)
2.) ADC = Attack damage carry (more reliant on basic attacks or spells that deal attack damage)
3.) LoL = League of Legends
4.) Ult = Ultimate ability (Malzahar's Nether Grasp
5.) Nuff' = Anough
6.) OP = Overpowered (extremely powerful)
7.) MIA = Missing in action (away from lane)
8.) K (2k, 3k, etc.) = 1,000
9.) ^ = Above
10.) Bot = Bottom (bottom lane)
11.) Mid = Middle (middle lane)
12.) Duh = The
13.) Nub = Newbie (new to something)
1.) Great farmer (one of the best in LoL!)
2.) If you know how to combo correctly and if the enemy is at half health, it is almost an assured kill.
3.) HE FLOATS!
4.) Great late game and great for initiating ganks for your jungler. (use your ult combo nuff' said.)
5.) HE HAS A MINI DAGGER THAT HE'S TOO COOL TO EVEN USE!
1.) Bad early game (level 1-5)
2.) Can consume mana quickly if you spam his spells in a bad manner.
3.) His Q is the only area damage he has, unless you include his W that does about no damage unless with the ult combo.
4.) HIS GLOWING EYES MAKE HIM LOOK SCARY AND EVIL! :c
1.) Try to put this spell in front of the person if they're going towards you or running from you. They will most likely run into it.
2.) Malzahar's second highest damage spell at level 18 (other than Malzahar's Nether Grasp)
3.) Great for clearing out lines of minions.
1.) Worthless without ult combo. (unless your trying to get up your Voidling in base or for pushing a tower)
2.) That is all that needs to be said about this spell.
1.) Extremely useful spell for farming or just to deal some simple damage. (It's a click spell, not a skill shot)
2.) It makes the Voidling go at the person that has the Malefic Visions so it's pretty funny to just put your Malefic Visions on a low health enemy and watch your pet slowly finish them off.
3.) Good for indicating a focus.
4.) Highest damaging Malzahar spell other than Malzahar's ultimate, Nether Grasp.
1.) AN EXTREMELY OP ULT IN 1v1 FIGHTS!
2.) Always combo your Malefic Visions and Null Zone with Nether Grasp for full damage. (unless the enemy is very low or you don't have enough mana)
3.) In my opinion, one of the best ult's in the game, mostly because of it's low cool down and op damage when used with combo.
1.) Malzahar is an Ability Power Carry, making him need lots of damage. The 21 points in offence does the trick.
2.) I did not use defense masteries because when you finish your whole build, Malzahar will have about 2.7k health, making him not need any extra defensive masteries.
3.) The reason why I went utility masteries instead of defensive masteries for my secondary masteries is because Malzahar needs lots of mana early game and utility masteries help him through that early game.
