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.
This is an amazing tank build for Mordekaiser. Keep in mind it's all about tanking, and not dishing out the damage. Although it is for tanking, Mordekaiser can still hit very hard!
Rune choice is up to you, but i like magic resist, ability cool downs, and higher HP for early game. I choose the flat health Q's because I like to start my build without doran's shield, and go straight into regrowth pendant, or even boots. The CDR is pretty self explanatory, Mordekaiser uses HP instead of mana or energy. As for the Magic resist, remember you are tanking, and in my build my only resist item is FoN, although others could be substituted.
WE ARE TANKING! 0-27-3
The masteries cancel out all damage on Mordekaiser, he is god-like with max items. Nothing can touch him.
Boots of Swiftness
Force of Nature
I start my build with the regrowth pendant.
Then I Completely buy boots 3.
NOw you can either finish FoN or go into Omen's.
After Omen's and FoN, get Warmogs.
Grab sunfire afterwards, this will give you a little damage output to help the team.
finally grab a thornmail, this makes Mordekaiser a god. His damage output is increased greatly against AD teams.
KEEP IN MIND
these are recommended items, and can be changed. This build works against a variety of teams, but if there are too many AP enemies you can get more resist instead of thornmail, you may even want a banshee's vail.
Your "E" and "Q" are your bread and butter for farming, and team fights
"W" is great with the sunfire cape, but it should not be rushed.
ALWAYS max "E" and "Q" 1st! E>Q>W
"R" is excellent for team-fights as well, try to use it when the enemy is low, and combo it with Ignite.
Start with "E" then "Q" then "W"
after 1 level in "W" max "E" > "Q"
get "R" whenever the chance obviously.
This is a personal preference.
I like Flash for getting out of tight situations, or hopping walls.
Second i Grab Ignite because this is great with mordes ulti "R".
Ghost is also really good for chasing or getting away. Make sure to change the masteries if you're going to use ghost.
Mordekaiser is great at farming!!!!
FARM AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!!
"E" and "Q" are EXCELLENT are farming!
Your build is some-what expensive, try to farm as much as you can before all of the team fights break out.
YOU ARE THE TANK!
try to take the focus fire for the team.
start the fight with your "W" on yourself or an ally.
use your "Q" and "E" to charge your passive and focus someone.
Once an enemy is low use "R" and ignite on them. This will add an additional ally to your team.
Keep using "E" "Q" and "W" when cooled. always focus the same person and you should win the team fight easily.
IF YOUR OMEN'S IS READY REMEMBER TO USE IT! IT SLOWS ATTACK SPEED AND MOVEMENT SPEED!
