Did they change something about Malzs' passive Void Shift? Usually, if Void Shift was up, I could pick up honeyfruits, without being slowed down due to the immunity to crowd control. However, since this preseason patch is live, I do get slowed down, but not losing my Void Shift Bubble?

Can anyone confirm this?

I'll check this soon, it's possible th=at they hided this change in the bugfix list on the patch note, with the honeyfruits appearing in the ocean rifts, they may thought that it were giving a to big adventage

Actually I tried a while ago Top malzahar with glacial augment, as you can see in the builds options in the top of the guide. It turns out it was great against yasuo top the first game but then it wasn't very stable in lane and very dependant on your jungle. I didn't put a lot of time into it however. It has so much pressure I'll suggest trying it with regular malzahar runes (so not glacial augments) but I don't really know if it works really well. I'll try more later in the patch.

When you look at Xerath matchup, can you add: "Pushes faster at lvl one, has good gank setup and never roams... Dodge!"

Lol I know that it is weird but I just don't play ranked because I play for fun (yes for fun). So each year since one of my friend bully me until I do my ranked, I only do my placements, and no more. Since I was bronze 4 at season 6, It influenced the result of my ranked no matter how I play, so I always get in bronze but I'm too lazy to climb up. Last season I tried to hit silver almost a day before the end of the season and past from B3 to B1 xD, One more day I would have been silver but honestly I don't care. I still have the knowledge, just not the skills that is needed with it.

Being low elo doesn't have anything to do with making a guide for a champion you like. If you know the champion in and out and how to properly make it so that others can use it to climb, then there's no problems.

Sure, being higher elo makes it better because, you will be getting much more experience with playing in high elo, then you would in lower elo. But it still doesn't have any impact on making guides here on MobaFire.

Just because you are low elo, doesn't mean you can't create guides. :)

Haha thank you very much! I really appreciate your comment, but the music choice isn't from me. The first time Malzahar and September were merge into perfection was when MagikarpUsedFly made his Actual malzahar champion spotlight, about the old malzahar.
Glad you liked my guide!

Thanks for making such a detailed guide! I've been trying to find out how to lane against malzahar, and it's great to know that even Malzahar mains know there's no counterplay to him, besides the Cleanse item thingie.
In all seriousness though, very nice and detailed guide, with a lot of personality. Keep making more like these, +1 upvote.

Have a nice day,

I knew someone would use my guide someday to counter Malzahar! Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it. If you really wants to counter Malzahar, pick either Zilean for mid, or anything that can one shot all his minion like Renekton for top lane, pick Quicksilver Sash for his level 6 and if you're tank, take the Adaptive Helm. That's what counters him. 2 Items and anything that kills his voidling really fast. However, it is, even for me, still unknown what counters Malzahar's splitpushing ability late game exept a team full of teleport xD

Hmmm, Mercurial Scimitar on Veigar... Hmmmmmm. Adaptive Helm would definitely work on Veigar, because of his infinite AP stacking.

I like playing Veigar and Zoe, and with Zoe it's impossible for me to 1v1 Malzahar, but with Veigar it shouldn't be too hard, but it still is because I suck with him lol.

NEW PLAN, FULL TANK Veigar AGAINST Malzahar, MERCURY THREADS, Adaptive Helm, Warmog's Armor, EVERYTHING, MORE Adaptive Helm.

Why do you choose ghost for CDR/Mana Sustain Malzahar? I think teleport is better. What do you tihnk?

Rermo99 (5) | February 3, 2019 9:23am
Actually the summoner spells aren't tied to each build. I was planning making a chapter to explain that, because Flash/Ignite is for a standard midlane or to suppress an endless healing from a champion, Flash/Ghost for a more mobile game to roam or anything that needs more movement speed and Ghost/Ignite for a go-for-the-kill lane. But I completely forgot the Flash/TP, my bad. It's good if you plan on going in a "Only-towers-matter" and go with the extrem split pusher Malzahar playstyle. It can also help you deal with that hard matchup by winning the other lanes. Teleport for Malzahar hasn't been a choice for me since I don't play often in ranked and that I'm still stuck low elo (kill me pls), but I think it can be a pick depending on the enemy team. If they got a tryndamere who only split push, TP could help.

Maybe for the build with glacial augment. It is still in test right now, but you can surely take it for top lane

Rermo99 (5) | January 18, 2019 11:03am
I would like more information if there is something wrong with the guide. It could help bring more damage the "full damage malzahar" part of the guide, which I suppose you were talking about.

Very cool guide. I am playing Malzahar on and off for such a long time now. This guide convinced me picking him as one of my three main champs. While I knew the majority of these information already, I have to confess, I always went E->Q->W and totally ignored my Voidlings. Let's try this. Thanks for the informative and funny guide!

Rermo99 (5) | December 26, 2018 7:11am
Thanks for the comment! I too goes E>Q>W sometimes, but taling W second allows me to go for more damages. I surely miss the good silence early game, but full damage Malzahar os my style, so I prefer damages over CC xD
Glad you liked my guide and thanks again for the comment!
