Void Shift (PASSIVE)
Malzahar Passive Ability
Threats & Synergies
Yasuos wall is useless against you and when he try to engage on you with his E or his knock up you can just R on him
your passive shield helps you a lot against his constant Qs in laning phase and you can just stop him bursting you with your ult
you can stop her E and her R with your R so she cant burst you down
this matchup is harder because you have to keep pushing him under his turret and you have to be smart when he alls in on you, if you can dodge his R youre good to go
this matchup is harder because of your range. Sol can poke you down while you try to poke you, but if you can Q him his W is cancelled
thats one of the most annoying matchup for me. She just keeps poking you with Q+W and you cant E her because of her shield. Also she has a decent range
the only thing that makes this matchup hard is that he can W your R
she is lika katarina but Diana can still burst you really fast when she breaks your shield with her Q and that means she can R you twice and even if you ult her she can kill you if she survives
he is like orianna but if he puts his W under you before you R him it interrupts you and he bursts you down
she can poke you in lane with her Q and a good Taliyah can press W in the moment you R her and it cancels it
he outranges you and can break your shield very easily. Your best chance is if you can R him after he started channeling his R if not he will demolish you. Also if you're in range you can cancel his ult with your Q
you have to be very careful if you dont have shield, if he stuns you youre dead because you are a mid range caster
you can use your R to stop him bursting you with his R but if he gets QSS or Hexdrinker you'll have a hard time
Hope you enjoy my guide and feel free to leave comment or your questions.
When I first tried him I saw the huge 1v1 potential in him and I thought he could be good in soloq and he was. After playing this seasons(8.) 10 placement game I had 8w-1l with him on mid lane . I used to play him as a support but after his W changes i don't think he is that effective.
I always use Summon Aery though. If I E on the enemy and then I reset my E with my Q Aery damages twice while I keep autoing the enemy and don't forget about your W. This combo can do a lot of damage early and if you have ignite its almost 100% a first blood or at least a kill.
Q - Call of the Void: Your Q is a skillshot that creates two orbs and after a short duration damages and silences everything in between them. At max rank it silences for 2 seconds and if you use Q on a target that has your E on them it resets your E.
W - Void Swarm: Summon Voidllings that attack nearby enemies prioritizing targets that has your E on them. Your voidllings also deal more damage to Ed targets and move faster into their direction. After the nerfs and changes your Voidllings are one shoted with auto attacks but they stronger against minions.
E - Malefic Visions: Cast a damage over time spell on an enemy target. If your target is hit by your Q or R the timer of your E is reseting. When it kills a target it spreads to another target it refunds some mana. Thats your main source of damage and you can clear waves extremely fast with your E + W.
R - Nether Grasp: It's a pont click ability and after casting it your target can't move or use spells for 2,5 seconds. This ability is your only hard CC besides your silence and you can melt mages with it but it has some health ratio against tanks as well. Cleanse can't used by your target but QSS can cancel the CC.
