Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Maokai - Bring me back to the woods!
The twisting magical energies unleashed by mages during the Rune Wars caused an incredible amount of devastation to the natural world. The League was established to control the use of this magic by confining it to the Fields of Justice. By limiting its use to there, they thought that they could prevent it from doing further harm to the environment. It seemed that they were successful until Maokai came into being. During a League match on The Twisted Treeline, Maokai, an ancient oak that stood above the upper jungle, spontaneously roared to life. Ripped from the natural balance by arcane forces, his sentience was forged in chaos. Before the Adjudicators of the League could step in and suppress him, he slew all six champions participating in the match. The scholars of the Arcanum Majoris took a keen interest in him, as they were eager to discover the secrets of his animation.
Maokai was furious, however. He abhorred the existence was that thrust upon him; he felt it was a corruption of nature. He learned to communicate with people in hopes of finding a way to be returned to his former, true state. Seizing the opportunity, the League offered a trade. They would research a way to revert him so long as he agreed to fight in the League of Legends. Maokai was indifferent to verdicts rendered by the League, but he was eager to punish summoners for their wanton use of magic. He agreed to the terms under one condition: once they learned how to turn him back, they would never animate another tree again. He wears a lantern on the Fields of Justice to set him apart from the other trees, and as a warning to the animals that would do him harm.
I will use this power until I am free of it.
This will be a guide for winning a Normal / ranked game with Maokai!
With this build your going to Carry your teammates to heaven.
You'll end up with something like this :)
I rather go withand
Ghost because of the ability to sprint after champions and escape from battles you have lost, aswell as kiting with your zaplings!
Teleport is a great way of traveling through the map, It's AWESOME at early game when you need to go back and get your Boots and just teleport right up again to the lane.
Pros / Cons
Hillariously good nuker
Really hard to kill
Abit squishy in early game
Cant figure out more sorry o.O
By using Sapling Toss you wont have to go in and melee creeps at Mid-late game you'll one hit them!
Place the sapling just in the middle of all creeps and BOOM they are all dead ;)
