Threats to Morgana with this build
|Heimerdinger||Heimer is very easy too bad no one plays him. Your W will be able to kills his turrets and his caster minions at same time making his life a living hell in lane. Also his stun is super easy to counter and really the only thing you have to watch out for is being ganked since you will literally be under his tower all laning phase.|
|Veigar||Veigar early is almost non existent you can shove him under tower and harass and try to kill but late game its a different champion he will one cycle you and your shield will literally be the only thing able to keep you alive so make sure to also be vigilant and use shield asap when you see that event horizon.|
|Zilean||Zilean will never stun you and you can kill him pre six or after six you can blow his ult. When you do blow his ult and you are able to stop hitting him do so and wait his ult out to reengage.|
First off thank you for taking the time to check out my Morgana Guide. I had alot of fun making it and a I hope you enjoy it. Thank you again I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read it.
First off Morgana is my favorite and best midlaner, She helped me get to Diamond last season with a 61% winrate on my other account. She is a very safe and deceptively strong midlaner. Her kit allows you to play passively when needed and not be punished and play aggressively when needed and be able to survive. She has built in spell vamp which is extremely helpful in lane because it allows you to take bad trades and stay in lane because she will heal it up with a tormented soil or two.
In this guide I will try to give you all that you need to be able to make Morgana mid viable be successful with her in you climb.
Pros / Cons
She is very safe in lane her black shield makes her very hard to lockdown during ganks.
Her W at rank three will insta kill the caster minions making her ability to CS pretty easy.
Her Q is one of the longest CC in the game at max rank and allows you to make picks very easily.
Her Ult is a very strong ability on first proc it slows whoever is in range then on second proc it binds everyone still tethered to her for 1.5 seconds
Her passive gives you spell vamp which means as you use your spells and hit enemies with them you heal a percentage of the damage which gives her great sustain in lane and in the game.
She is an all around decently easy champion to play which means she doesnt take long to master and since she is an easier champ it is harder to mess up her combos.
She is too heavily reliant on her Q bind. If you are unable to reliably hit your Q then your damage and utility is greatly decreased. Luckily with time this ability will become easier and easier to hit more reliably.
She is more of a burst mage and not a sustain mage meaning once your abilities are used she is just standing there for 6 seconds with 40% CDR.
Lastly if you miss binds in lane the enemy laner can take advantage of that and harass you for free with no worry about you binding them.
Morgana is a semi team reliant champion her CC is amazing but without follow up by a team her utility is going to be pretty underwhelming
Farming on Morgana is Decently easy at level one when you take your W you can put it down in between the minion wave so that it hits as many as possible and then AA to last hit once you get to Level 5 Farming is significantly easier do to your W being able to one shot the caster minions. Farming under tower is a little bit tricky and will need some practice. You will need to try to set up the minions one AA and one turret shot for casters and two turret shots and last hit with an AA on melee minions. It will take practice but can be done easily. Also if the full wave hits you can W the cannon and caster minions and then just focus on the melee minions which allows you to juggle minions easier.
Morgana is a decently simple champion to play with few tips and tricks to master.
There are five tricks I use to get free kills and these work out most of the time or I wouldn't still use them XD
First is using Q right when a minion your laner is hiding being is about to die. The enemy laner will hide behind his minions because your bind only hits the first thing it makes contact with so being able to time your bind to hit them, when the minion they are hiding behind dies is crucial to learn since it allows you to hit enemies more often and trade with them. This skill will also force your enemies to be afraid more and lose some farm this can be done to when enemies go in for last hit on minions.
Second skill is kind of a cheese but even in diamond ELO it still works sometimes. I try to use this at least once or twice a game because when it works I usually end up getting a kill or they blow summoners. So the skill is to start backing in lane and bait them to try to stop your back, when they get close enough, bind them and all in them this is best done when you have ignite and ult. You will be surprised how many times this works so I highly suggest trying it out.
Third skill is to pretend like your roaming to top lane or bot lane and then just sit in the pixel brush and wait for them to follow you and when they get close enough preferably use ult first them Q so you get second ult proc and ignite for the kill this will work once or twice max before they know. Keep in mind a pink in those bushes will make you 100% certain it isn't warded so I recommend pink warding it first.
Forth Trick or skill is to flash ult now I now this may sound easy but where it gets tricky is when to Zhonyas because if you do it instantly then everyone you ult will laugh as they walk out of it. On the other hand if you do it too late you will die and the enemy team will laugh as they again walk away. So the trick is to know when to use your Ult Zhonya combo and my best advice is to see who there biggest threat is and if he or she can burst you down use Zhonyas to counter that. Now at the end of the day this combo will blow a lot of flashes. When you get this skill down and are able to Flash Ult and Zhonyas at that Goldilock time it can single highhandedly win fights.
The last tip or skill is when you are siegeing to throw bind out and try to bind people I know its not a skill or tip but when you are sieging 5 man or even 4 man that bind will almost always guarantee a kill.
In a Teamfight Morgana can have two modes I think, Mode number one when your team is ahead and you want to engage and force fights and mode number two is when you are behind and want to get picks or peel for your carry.
First mode is that you want to play team fights when you have flash ult and Zhonyas up as an engage tool, since you can safely flash ult and zhonyas it is a very good engage tool but without all three of those abilities your best bet is to try to pick people with your Q and ult their back line and try to pump out as much damage as possible.
Second mode is when you are even or maybe behind. You want to try to get picks when you have the number advantage and try to save ult when their front line is disrupting your backline or are trying to kill your carry. Your ult is an amazing peel tool since it gives 20% slow to everyone in your range and then locks them down after the second proc. Pretty much you want to play as a second support that can do alot of damage. Try to save your shield for your carries and only use it on yourself when you absolutely need to. Since you are a burst mage your shield late game is more efficient on your adc because he can pump out constant damage and you can only use spells once every 6 seconds with 40% CDR.
All in all I hope you understand hoe to play Morgana better and see her potential in ranked as I did and above all I hope you enjoy playing her as much as I do. See you on the Rift and as always GLHF
