Lets now start with our OP Mordekaiser Build guide and how to win games easier than ever!
An introduction to our Mordekaiser Builds
Before we start by explaining everything in details lets talk about Mordekaiser himself! After destroying countless Mordekaiser players and test different kind of builds I found out that the way to play this champion is COMPLETE different than anything that exist!
If you read Mordekaiser skills and their AP ratios you will realize that this champion is not meant to be played as a Full Mage or with any other way that others trying to force this champion to be played! He is just like Rammus he got high AP ratios, but also got skills that guiding you to play him with a different way, just like Mordekaiser
With this build you will be totally UNSTOPPABLE and most of the times, even 1v5, IMMORTAL, cause of how the champion kit works! His R Realm of Death will let you isolate 1 of the enemy team's member and kill it, while of course regaining like crazy and getting ready to kill the rest 4! Cause of how the Realm of Death works, the target that we will always focus is the TANKIEST ONE of all, not only you will be able to kill any champion easily, but you will also steal 10% of every single one of their stats, that means that you will become much stronger after using your Realm of Death and you will be strong enough to sustain and kill anyone easily!
But what we are going to do is combining: Darkness Rise Sunfire Aegis Demonic Embrace and Riftmaker that will multiply these 3 Damages and give BONUS TRUE DAMAGE and INSANE HEALING. This combo will give you enough damage to destroy ENTIRE TEAMS cause of the damage hp and high base per second magic damage and cause of your Death's Grasp passive you will also have 15% magic penetration to apply even more, but is it just that? Of course not, the secret to this build that making it totally unstoppable is the combination of items-runes that will make you heal like crazy, no matter which runes you will choose (check the detail explanation below)! All of the damage you will be doing around you will be come back to you as heal and be multiplied together with your SHIELDS by 40% cause of the combination of Revitalize and Spirit Visage

Here you can watch a good game example of our Immortal Mordekaiser Riftmaker Conqueror build:


And our Newest DEBUFF Immortal Mordekaiser Build version that full using the power of Iceborn Gauntlet


And the Immortal Jak'Sho, The Protean Mordekaiser Build version that you can play combine also Void Staff for a Full Burn and Magic Pen Build:




Now you are ready to learn the secrets behind our RUNES and ITEMS. Lets do this!
Secret Behind Runes
For Mordekaiser we got 2 different versions of runes, we will talk here about the strongest of all and why is that!

If you play against a melee match up, you will always choose for this set of runes
Resolve + Presicion
For resolve:

Grasp of the Undying While being in combat you will have the ability to do % of your max HP as dmg and also heal of your % of your HP plus 5 bonus health each time you activating it, that means that you will become stronger and stronger the more you fight!

Shield Bash each time you gaining a shield you will have bonus 1-10 Armor/Magic resist but also your next attack will do damage equal to 1.5% of your HP plus 8.5% of the total shield that you are gaining that together with Indestructible will make you totally UNSTOPPABLE!

Second Wind gain health regeneration equal to 3 (+ 4% of your missing health) over 10 seconds that together with Doran's Shield will make you have so much sustain from early till late game that you will be insanely powerful just cause of this combination of rune-item!

Revitalize Bonus 5-15% HEALS and SHIELDS, this is by far one of the strongest runes to play with Mordekaiser cause together with your Spirit Visage you will have 30%-40% bonus HEALS and 30%-40% that will multiply Indestructible shield even further, in late game the shield that you are gaining each time will be 1100+ and if you use it again you will gain 50% of each amount as heal, both of these amount will be multiplied by your Revitalize and Spirit Visage

For Presicion:

Triumph 10% Bonus missing heal and 20 gold each time you gaining a kill/assist
incredible powerful in 1v5 situations cause you will receive heal of your missing hp and also you will multiply this by 40% from Revitalize and Spirit Visage
imagine that if you got 4000 total hp and you are with 500 hp, the 10% missing health is ~400 and by multiplying this by 40%, your heal will be 588 HP instead pretty op indeed!

Legend: Tenacity Bonus 30% Tenacity, making you have a total tenacity of 60%+ that will let you avoid ANY CC while fighting 1v5! One of the most important stats in the game that will also let you the option of going for Plated Steelcaps instead of Mercury's Treads to counter both CC and Basic attackers with lots of ON-hit effects!

Legend: Alacrity If you got close to none CC against you, then to go for this rune is a must, bonus attack speed that will let you activate Sunfire Aegis second burn effect WAY MORE TIMES than before and apply even more damage!

If you playing against a ranged match up, then it will be hard to stack your Grasp of the Undying so instead of letting them counter us, we will play with a different way! With the combination of Precision + Resolve or Precision + Domination

So for Precision:

Conqueror A very powerful rune that will give you Bonus AP and also let you heal by 8% the reason we choosing Grasp of the Undying instead of Conqueror is not cause of this rune only power, but cause of the entire resolve runes tree that we need Shield Bash + Second Wind + Revitalize but if we play against a range champion we need to play smarter, so we will go for Conqueror and precision instead!

Triumph 10% Bonus missing heal and 20 gold each time you gaining a kill/assist
incredible powerful in 1v5 situations cause you will receive heal of your missing hp and also you will multiply this by 40% from Revitalize and Spirit Visage
imagine that if you got 4000 total hp and you are with 500 hp, the 120% missing health is ~400 and by multiplying this by 40%, your heal will be 588 HP instead pretty op indeed!

Legend: Tenacity 30% Bonus tenacity, together with your Mercury's Treads you will have 51% Tenacity and if you choose to go for Elixir of Iron you will have total of 70%+ Tenacity, ready to be totally unstoppable from any kind of cc and letting you just go all in and destroy them all!

Coup de Grace Bonus 8% damage to targets below 40% HP, making you even stronger as you keep destroying them!

For Resolve:

Second Wind gain health regeneration equal to 6 (+ 4% of your missing health) over 10 seconds that together with Doran's Shield will make you have so much sustain from early till late game that you will be insanely powerful just cause of this combination of rune-item!

Revitalize Bonus 5-15% HEALS and SHIELDS, this is by far one of the strongest runes to play with Mordekaiser cause together with your Spirit Visage you will have 30%-40% bonus HEALS and 30%-40% shields that will multiply Indestructible shield even further, in late game the shield that you are gaining each time will be 1100+ and if you use it again you will gain 50% of each amount as heal, both of these amount will be multiplied by your Revitalize and Spirit Visage

If you want to understand how Heals, Shields and Regeneration works and why we are choosing these runes over anything else, we got our league masterclass that will help you:


No matter what runes you will choose, you will play with the same items that we will explain next and you will be totally UNSTOPPABLE!
Secret Behind Items

For our IMMORTAL Mordekaiser Build



Let’s talk about the combination of items that will make you a total monster from level 1 till the full late game!

We will always start with Doran's Shield plus Health Potion as we talked to all of our guides start items are extremely gold efficiency, making them worth much more of their actual cost, Doran's Shield while you are in combat is 300% gold efficiency, that means its goes up to 1350 gold worth of stats that together with Second Wind will make you absolute unstoppable in lane phase and late game!

What we need to get as fast as possible is Bami's Cinder we need the damage per second around you to combine it with Darkness Rise we will do an insanely big amount of damage and destroy them all even if you are fighting 1v5, cause you will be damaging all 5 of them at the same time (plus the creeps)!

Before you finish the Sunfire Aegis you need to get the Bramble Vest this item will give you armor, grievous wounds effect and also the damage return effect that will give you the ability to HIT-BACK from the damage you taking from his from both champions and creeps and HEAL FROM THEM(Cause of the runes)!

Then we will finish Sunfire Aegis one of the most powerful item for Mordekaiser, this item will give you HP, ARMOR and Burn damage that will scale with your HP that you got and will increase even further while using your ultimate!

Then after having your Sunfire Aegis and the Bramble Vest you will start buidling your Mythic item, for Immortal Mordekaiser you got 3 different options:

Riftmaker Our No1 Item to go for Mordekaiser, this item will give you what you need, AP, HP, Ability haste, Omnivamp and a bonus % TRUE DAMAGE that will break the enemies completely, also it will give you more Omnivamp and AP then more legendary items you got!

Iceborn Gauntlet Another powerful choice, this item will give you Armor, HP, Ability haste and an active spellblade effect that will apply to the enemy targets after using your skills, this effect will give you bonus damage, HUGE slow Aoe effect and an extra damage reduction effect that will apply on the first target you will hit!! Very good option for high mobile targets that we need to slow down (and when I mean slow down with an up to 80% slow effect!!!!!!) that will literally terorrize the foods completely, not only that, but also will reduce the damage of the target by 10% making you while fighting in your R 20% stronger and the enemy 20% WEAKER, making this 1v1 to be as deadly as you can imagine.
Per legendary item you will have HP and 2 OP stat effects, Tenacity and Slow resistances, I have to say that Iceborn Gauntlet might be the perfect item for isolated targets, high amount of slow effect plus tenacity-slow resistances to be unstoppable from CC while fighting!

Jak'Sho, The Protean what to say about this item, incredibly powerful and another good option if you got BONUS AD and AP damage against you, especially if you got AP damage dealer laner, this item might be even stronger than Riftmaker, this item will give you, HP, Armor, MR, Armor/MR while fighting and bonus resistances after fully stacking it, also a BURN DMG & HEAL effect that will make things unfair for your enemies and give you insane sustain plus a bonus burn effect that will stack with Sunfire Aegis and your passive!!
Per legendary item you will have bonus ARMOR/MR making you even stronger and give you resitances even without going for Armor-Mr Legendary items like for example Void Staff

After that you will finish your Thornmail HP, ARMOR, damage return Hit effect, but most importantly grievous wounds effect that goes up to % heal reduction to immobilized champions!! And all that while being super cheap as an item!!

For 4th item we will always go for Demonic Embrace AP, Huge HP, AP from %of your HP effect and Max %Hp damage to everything you are doing damage to, this item will work increadibly good with your passive Darkness Rise, Sunfire Aegis and Riftmaker or Jak'Sho, The Protean or Iceborn Gauntlet offer you a 3x Damage Effects that will for sure MELT any target, especially while using your R!

For Last item as Immortal Mordekaiser Build we got lots of options:

1. Spirit Visage The next item that we will choose is of course Spirit Visage one of the strongest items in the game now it will give you except the classic stats of HP, MR, HP REGAIN the ability to multiply your heals and SHIELDS from any source by 25% that together with Revitalize to reach numbers up to 40%, no matter what you got against you, full AD teams or no AP damage at all, the moment you will finish these 3 items, you will be literally ready for going 1v5 and enjoy what IMMORTALITY looks like!

2. Warmog's Armor this item is extremely powerful, cause expect of course the 800 HP and regeneration it will also give you 10 Ability haste, having total of 35 Ability haste and a healing effect that will easily be compared to the fountain healing, Mordekaiser is a non-mana champion that means what you need is this HEALING EFFECT to be always healthy enough to fight for as long as you want as long as you go for out of combat for 10seconds!

3. Anathema's Chains an item that is DESINGED for our Morde monster, as stats you got, huge amount of HP, Ability Haste and an active effect that will mark a target and that target will have less tenacity but most importantly will make him 30% WEAKER by doing 30% LESS DAMAGE Towards you. That means together with your R Realm of Death and if you use it on the same target, will make him 50% WEAKER while fighting you. Cuase you will steal 10% of their stats and use them as your own plus the 30% Damage reduction from Anathema's Chains. Use this if you want to make sure a champion that is FULL FED wont be a problem at all!

4. Gargoyle Stoneplate an Item that probably got no equal, especially if you play with the Jak'Sho, The Protean build version, this item will give you EVEN MORE ARMOR, MR, Ability haste and another stacking AMROR-MR effect plus a HUGE SHIELD that will make you a true immortal even without using your R to fight only 1 target!!

Also remember to always buy elixirs, either Elixir of Sorcery for better damage and true damage that will be activated by all of your skills
or go for Elixir of Iron and gain extra HP and bonus tenacity that if you play with the 2nd combination of runes you will be also having Legend: Tenacity and let you reach easily 60+% tenacity!!



For our FULL PEN Mordekaiser Build




As we talked above, Doran's Shield is going to be a must to have, so we will start with it!

On our first back we will buy a Doran's Ring and a Dark Seal plus if we got the gold a Refillable Potion the reason behind this is to increase our stats with the lowest cost possible. To understand just how powerful these combo of items are. Just with 750 gold (Plus Doran's Shield from lvl 1) you will have the following stats: 30 AP, 190 HP, AN INSANE HP regeneration, Ap stacks per kill/assist , Heal from Doran's Ring passive, bonus dmg to creeps the total worth of these stats is: Doran's Ring 550+Gold, Doran's Shield 1330 Gold and Dark Seal 1300 Gold fully stacked and 510 Gold with 1 stack, with total gold value of 3150 GOLD with a fully stacked Dark Seal something easy for our Max Pen Builds and 2400 Gold worth of stats without having stacks on Dark Seal

Note: We will sell our very first start item after starting building our 3RD CORE ITEM, making us using them for at least 15+minutes and we will only sell them by one while finishing the 3rd, 4th and lastly 5th item and NEVER SOONER while getting some of the value back after selling them, making the actual gold efficiency to be WAY HIGHER than what we talked about above

Now you can fully understand why you WILL NEVER SKIP these start items and continue with our core items.

The first and Mythic item for our Max Pen Mordekaiser Build will ALWAYS no MATTER WHAT be Riftmaker one of the strongest items in the entire game for champions like Mordekaiser this item will give you, AP, HP, Ability haste, Omnivamp and an INSANE %true damage BONUS effect and cause we are playing with the Max Pen Morde build that means we will use this effect and make it do EVEN MORE %TRUE Damage as Bonus damage plus you will add even more damage and sustain (Omnivamp) with every legendary item that you are finishing!

Our next item will be Void Staff, the reason is simple, you got enough HP from your start items that we talked above, plus bonus HP from your Riftmaker so that means you got plenty to skip a HP item and go right away to a Damage item, but this is not the only reason. Mordekaiser is a special champion, cause of your E Death's Grasp Magic Penetration EFFECT and by combining it with Void Staff you will have 50%+Magic Penetration the MOMENT you finish it. To understand how powerful Magic penetration as stat and how it is working, be sure to check our League masterclass episode here:



After Void Staff and before Demonic Embrace we will buy the Sorcerer's Shoes to add even more MAGIC PENETRATION as Flat number into our build, making you do even more close to be TRUE DMG to the enemy champions

For 3rd item, we will build our Demonic Embrace, a very powerful item, that will give you the following stats: AP, HP, Bonus AP from %HP and a Max %HP Dmg effect that together with Darkness Rise will let you melt ANYTHING. Realize now, you got Max HP dmg with Demonic Embrace and Darkness Rise that both doing Magic damage, this magic damage wont only be close to TRUE DAMAGE cause of the magic penetration that we talked above, but will also be increased even further cause of Riftmaker passive effect and also add even MORE HEALING from the omnivamp that you got. With just 3 items and there is no champion that can possibly win against you.

We got 3 Damage type items, so now we need a sustain type as 4th choice, the best choice is going to ALWAYS be Spirit Visage, this item will consider as cheating the moment you finish it. You will have as stats, HP, MR, HP Regain, Ability Haste and 25% BONUS Heals and SHIELDS, you can already understand that we will have tons of healing cause of the combination of runes-items-skills, so you will take that and increase all these EVEN MORE. YOu will also increase the shields and heals from Indestructible and depends on which RUNES you will use, you will increase them even more, if you got Conqueror and Riftmaker the healing from both will also be increased by 25%, if you got Grasp of the Undying rune choice then you will increase everything by 40% cause now you will also have the bonus HEALS and SHIELDS from Revitalize except only Spirit Visage

For last item as Max Penetration Mordekaiser Build you got the following options:

1. Warmog's Armor as we talked about it in our Immortal build version, this item is the most GOLD EFFICIENCY item in the game, the regain alone will make it useful for you to have, cause even if you kill them all, you might receive enough damage to make you unable to join the fight again without having something to heal from. Warmog's Armor will fix that by making you always have full hp while being out of combat no matter what!

2. Now we got the DAMAGE TYPE options, Rylai's Crystal Scepter a very powerful item with the following stats: AP, HP and a SLOW EFFECT that will let you reach any target no matter how "fast" he is and also help your teammates reach them as well!

3. Morellonomicon if the enemy got lots of HEALING then go for it, a cheap and very powerful item with AP, HP stats with also a 60% Heal reduction effect that will make sure you will destroy the champions that got tons of healing and think they are powerful!

4. Rabadon's Deathcap a LATE GAME choice to destroy everything. While having all the magic penetration effects that you need, plus the sustain from our items, Rabadon's Deathcap will give you an INSANELY BIG AMOUNT OF Ability power to literally one shot people with just your Q (especially if they isolated targets) always go for it as last item and never sooner, to fully use the AP stats that you will get from it!

As Elixirs you can play with both Elixir of Sorcery for more AP and True damage or Elixir of Iron for more HP and TENACITY that will for sure be helpful especially if you got the Legend: Tenacity rune to increase it even further!

Now that you fully understood how the RUNES and ITEMS work you are ready to destroy them all, just by following them, next you will find the tips, the important stuff that you need to focus and different video gameplay match ups for you to watch, enjoy and comment about your own experiences!
Strategy To Follow
There are some things that people keep forgetting about what is importance in this game, so we will start with these 2:
1: Creeps-Farm: The most important thing is to focus on your farm, you need to farm fast and if you can kill all the creeps without missing even one it will be even better. This way you will take the lead from your enemy champion, dont be afraid to use your skills for last hits even at the 1 level.

Learn how To improve your Farming and Wave Management by watching our League Masterclass:

Stay Alive: To not to die at lane and not have any kills is more worth than to be 3-3 or 4-4 with your enemy Lane champion.
Your build focusing to be the strongest at the MID-Late game, doesn't matter if you cant kill now, focus on farm and you will be able to show your true Strength at the right time of the game.

So you need to ALWAYS no matter what champion you playing to improve these two, farm better, stay alive, if you are not confident in your skills, always ask for junglers help!!

Remember that cause of the combination of items and the Mordekaiser kit, it will be absolute impossible for you to die that easily, so just by playing with focus you will be strong enough to WIN lane phase easily and destroy the late game of the entire late game even easier!

The rest will be shown in our Youtube channel and the Garen videos in "Different match ups" below!
