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.
I would like to inform you that this build is a hybrid build. If you want to play with this build. You Need to Know That Mordekaiser is not a primary tank. His first role is not to tank. I like to call this build ''offensive tank'' or ''secondary tank''. In fact, with this build, this is a champion that can handle a lot of damage and do a lot of damage if you are able to play him.
And this build make you realy strong in 1 on 1 fight with your ulti. You can kill carry with this build easyly in 1 on 1. And tank too, because you ulti make damage in %
- don't initiate the fight unless you are the only one that can do that.
- don't forget you shield during the fight.
- advise yout team (on skype or on chat) which person u will target with you ulti to get a ghost and be 6 vs 4.
- learn to farm with him and u will be rich!
- Perfect Lane player (learn to harass with your Siphon)
If you want more info, just read the other part of the build!!!
Mark of insight: Magic penetration make a bif difference in damage!
Greater glyph of force: give more ability power on short term and long term. Will help a lots at the beginning
Seal of vitality: You can take another rune at this part, but i think this is the rune that give more for money that you pay and fit with tanky Mordekaiser
Quintescence of insight: Still more magic penetration!!
My masteries are concentrate in defence, in fact the point that i got in offense is for get the 15% magic penetration. All the other masteries if for make Morde resistant.
If u look at the build, he got pretty good stats and 54.22 magic penetration and more than 400 ability power, u will see that your damage is realy nice!
Sorcerer Shoes: u need this item, and u will see that when you buy it, your damage on champion begin to be good!
Zhonya's Hourglass: perfect fit for a battle mage like Mordekaiser. Give good armor and good ability power.
Abysal Scepter: same thing as the Zhonya's hourglass. Good hybrid item. Give ability power, magic resist and the aura is useful!!!
Aegis of legion: the reason why the aegis is there is becuase ie need a item that boost armore and magic resist at same time and for the price, its realy good boost.
Guardian Angel: Armor and magic resist boost. and the unique is nice too!;)
The two last item can be exchange, in some game in take the Rabadon's Deathcap before the will of ancient. It depend of what you want. The spell vamp is realy nice. Imagine, your ulti drain health, you have guardian angel, you have spell vamp and you are tanky. You become realy hard to kill and you damage is rly high. But i prefer to take the Rabadon Death cap before the will of ancient to boost my ability power and become more of a damage dealer!;p
But if you want to be more tanky, take will of ancient before!
All people that play Mordekaiser know that the Siphon of destruction and his ulti do 3/4 of the job.
Siphon of destrution: primary skil, farm, kill, harass, this is the skill that u need how to use
Creeping death: Nice shield that boost a lots your armor and magic resist and can be use to farm at same time with siphon. Don't forget to active it in teamfight.
Mace of Spades: use it to farm with you two other skill, but if your health is low, dont do it, use it when your passive got a shield, same thing for creeping death. Last skill you will use in fight because this is a melee skill and because all of you other skill are better than this one for the fight.
Children of the graves: can be use to heal, if you battle two vs 1 and you are chase, do it on the tank and continu to run. But i like more to get a ghost. Advise people which carry you will target and with ur team all target him, you will have a ghost of a good carry and make this fight easy.
Flash: good for evade and good for chase
Ignite: good with Morde in the contexte that u can harass people near tower with your siphon and dont be target of the tower. Somebody his low life near tower? ulti on him ignite and siphon, he is dead, matter of time!
