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.
With this build you get to play Morgana in a safe way. You have good suvivability since pretty early and you don't depend on items which reset when you die.
Not much to explain here, other spells might be useful too, I personally like these 2 for the following reasons:
-Ignite: can often mean the difference between getting a kill or not.
-Clarity: it will allow you to stay in a lane for very long times, not needing to go back to heal mana while you can still pretty much spam your skills (don't just spam everything like crazy! but still, you don't have to watch your mana so much).
I like to play Morgana a bit defensively the first few levels.
First thing to get is Tormented soil, the reason is obvious, it's great for killing minions in a lane and also pretty useful to harass thanks to it's range.
Then I get Dark binding more like a weapon to scare than to actually kill, that's why I don't max it out so soon.
Another point into Tormented soil so the enemy doesn't kill mobs much faster than you and makes you retreat too often.
Black shield goes next, just 1 point until pretty late, but it can make you decievingly strong and I believe it's perfect to get some kills early, as enemies will believe they can kill you more often than they actually can.
At lvl 3 Tormented soil already hits pretty hard, so I think it's time to go offensive, you already have your ultimate at level 6, so now it's time to max out Dark binding. If everything works ok, you will probably start getting some kills now.
Dark binding + Tormented soil + Soul shackles hits pretty hard, and you'll also have your Black shield in case you didn't manage to get the kill and you have to risk a bit more.
If you are a really great player, perhaps buying other items as Mejai's Soulstealer might be better, but this way it works out pretty well too and it's less risky.
The items go like this:
-Rylai's crystal scepter
If you get so far in what items are referred, it's a good time to:
-Sell Doran's ring
-Buy Lich bane
By then you will have about 600 ability power, which will make you hit really strong with auto-attacks (base dmg + 100% of AP) as well as your spells thanks to Lich Bane. It can very often mean the difference between getting a kill or have someone running away in the last second.
Apart from this "wearable" items, I highly recommend buying Elixir of brilliance as often as you can, whenever you fall back to buy, if you can spare the extra money, be sure to buy an Elixir.
