Threats & Synergies
he's not that strong even if he stuns you. You can 1 vs 1 him
she's pretty strong if she engage your with his E aoid is Q and than if she push you 1 vs 1 her
he's not at all good just avoid is Q if he push you go for it 1vs 1 him MUNDO IS HAVING REWORK SO THIS WILL CHANGE
never been scared of him is rare to fight in 1 vs 1 if him approches you fight him,if he has is R don't use yours
Crush this spider with your Q 1 vs 1 her she's really weak
she can be a pain just for is W Fight her pre-level 6 after level 6 lume in your/her red and blue, you can still win 1 vs 1
Is annoying because of his Q and E but if he pushes you with R you can use your R to counter him well
I've recently seen some Garens in jungle,if you find him he has a lot of health and damage but he will push you so will be very easy to kill Fight him 1 vs 1
Avoid his barrels then he's really easy even if he stuns you
his range is really annoying so don't run for him but if you find him very close try to 1 vs 1
she's strong in late game so after lv 11 can be reallt hard to kill, she's very rare to find in jungle fight her early
He's not strong at all is similar to you so he must push you when he push just crush him,REMEBER TO USE YOUR SHIELD
not seen since i started playing so very rare but i think is easy even if he stuns you he can hide in bushes when is on your R so watch out
1 vs 1 him is easy because is ult is isolating you with him and is just better for you but if he di that in team fight use your R or the enemy team will destroy you
the best he can do is doing Q and E so after that he can only do AA fight him 1 vs 1 at level 3 when he's at level 6 can kill you so if u fed is easy if he's with 1 item more than you try not fight him
seeing him but very often he counters you even if you do your R if he's good you are probably gonna lose so don't fight him
he will probably go rhaast so is W is annoying, bit if he go blue kayn you can deal half of his life with your Q PICK ZHOYNA
this champ is strong has great damage if he 1 vs 1 you is really scary so watch out after is level 6 fight him early and build tank
range champ really rare in jungle but can really break you so avoid him 1 vs 1 if he's really close to you try to R
Great damage and mobility PICK MOBILTY ITEM and try stay at his steeps 1 vs 1 him
she's fast she's ranged she's rare to find vs so if you find her just take MOBILTY ITEM AND TANK
similar to lee sin he's fast and i ban him like always because i find him annoying with he's Q fight him 1 vs 1 pre level 6 or when he's without the R POSSIBLE BAN
fight her pre level 6 because she's really annoying with his Q ask support to BAN her because she's strong support and jungle
he's bad at pre level 6 and if he try to push you go for it
pretty annoying in his normal form so when she become puma fight her
he's fast and annoying with his ability so build MOVEMENT and you can kill him 1 vs 1
Nunu & Willump
if you avoid his snowball is pretty easy to 1 vs 1 fight his R counters your so picking ZHOYNA for his R is ok
not seeing him in jungle but he's strong because of his Q and his R 1 vs 1 him pre level 6 POSSIBLE BAN
he's weak everytime in the game 1 vs 1 him and MOVIMENT build is recommended
same as Rammus i recommend build MOVEMENT and you can 1 vs 1 him
he can only fight you close so buy lumes and fight him 1 vs 1
he has mobility with his E so build MOVEMENT 1 vs 1 him early and mid if he's not fed
never find her she has range but not that much so you can 1 vs 1 her
i hate him so much don 't 1 vs 1 him BAN HIM IF YOU DON'T BAN HIM build tank damage and don't fight him with his R
she need to push you even if she don't want so wait to her push then punish her and R
take control of crystals on the map build ZHOYNA and MOVEMENT 1 vs 1 him
rare to find but anooying with is ability aoid 1 vs 1 him in is ice
he's strong don't fight him, if he's without his Rtry t trap him in your R
stun is pretty strong so watch out 1 vs 1 him early, MOVEMNT MUST BE BUILD
his stun his annoying and he can disapper with his abiltys so ult first
stong because of his high damage and stun he has a shield to so basically is stronger pre level 6 POSSIBLE BAN
same as voli he's strong he can heal himself he can shield and escape is R is strong POSSIBLE BAN
fight him pre level 6 he can escape with his ability so do your E to get him back POSSIBLE BAN
still easy just dodge his W 1 vs 1 him and you can R first
easy matchup buy ZHOYNA for his R and buy MOBILITY
Champion Build Guide
Sorry if there are grammatical errors in English but I am Italian so I am not a native speaker of English
- Really strong and fast in cleaning jungle
- Your Early Game is really strong beside every enemy jungler
- Solid tank with a lot of damage with the possibility trap an enemy
- Good in Late Game
- Good to use when you have no tank
- Few items in your build to choose
- Difficults ganks in others lains
- Same runes every game
- Others junglers can scale better than you
- Not really good when you already have 2 tanks on your team
Your best is to have someone that stuns/slows/silences the enemy to get your E and get an easy kill, another thing that must be knowed is that have more than 2 tanks on your team can mean your end is near the can easly build 3 anti-tanks and you will loose for sure the mid/late game.
Here are some tips on what you should like to have in your lains:
TOPLAINERS: Like every toplainer is good because all of them stuns/slows/silences but you realy like to have an Assassin top lainer or someone that isn't a tank
MIDLAINERS: You like everyone here because if he's a Magician or an Assassin at least you are sure to not getting a tank mid lainer
BOTLAINERS: Your ADC is your best friend because of his long range damage so everyone will be good.
You support can be tank when your top are choosing to not pick a tank champion, everything that can grab or root an enemy champion is your best synergies
COUNTERS: All counters in jungle are written in the threats
CHANGE ALACRITY with TENACITY: Is a thing you can do when they have a lot of enemys (expecially the enemy jungler) with CC, if the enemys haven't got or have a low percent of Cc DON'T CHANGE ALACRITY because is really good for you in fights, you need that attack speed.
CHANGE EYEBALL COLLECTION with TASTE OF BLOOD: I never change this because you need more damage than lifesteal, you need damage because with Riftmaker you already have a good amount of lifesteal, so DON'T CHANGE EYEBALL is really stronger than taste of blood
1st Item: Riftmaker is your ONE and ONLY choice as first item, i really like to build leeching leer and boots because Mordekaiser against other junglers hasn't got a lot of movement and Leeching has a good global lifesteal.
After first item: So you have builded your Riftmaker now you must choose from 2 path:
- Build Boots
Building Boots is the best for more movent speed and will help a little in ganks.
- Build Nashor Teeth
Building Nashor is the best for fighting you gain more attack speed and helps a lot in fighting enemy .
So my advice for your first time is to BUILD RECURVE BOW and FINISH YOUR BOOTS.
This is what I ALWAYS buy after Riftmaker obviusly this depend on what you team needs if you are loosing in lains you should go for BOOTS, if your lains are in a tie(or 1 kill difference) you can get 2 DAGGERS and build BOOTS, if your lains are winning you should go for RECURVE BOW and BOOTS
(THIS IS MY OPINION IN GENERAL BUT EVERY GAME CAN BE DIFFERNT SO THIS IS NOT MAKING SURE THAT YOU WILL WIN EVERY GAME)
- ZHOYNA: is an OCCASIONAL ITEM, good VS enemies ultimate like KAYN,FIDDLE,AMUMU,JARVIS,YI,ZAC,NUNU.
I don't build it even when there are those champion vs me but sometimes this item can save you so if you see that Zhoyna can help tou in fights or teamfights build it is not a waste of gold but i usually don't build this item as 4th but as 5th or last.
- RYLAI: is REALLY GOOD item for Mordekaiser i build it like every game is really strong with your abilitys.
This item is FIRE with Mordekaiser trust me when you gank is a really pain especialy when you grab someone with your E is like a 100% kill, i build this item as 4th like always BUT be sure to deal a good amount of damage because if you don't is a waste of gold.
- MORELLON: is OCCASIONAL, good againts enemy with high lifesteal so if you see 2/3 picks with lifesteal just build this.
This is like Zhoyna but i often build it because you actually find always someone with a lot of life steal but DON'T build this item vs an only one enemy with life steal but with 2/3 enemies can be very good, i buld this item as 4th ONLY if there are a lot of lifestealer, if the have no lifestealer DON'T build this item.
- DEMONIC: it helps a lot in fights giving you damage and health so is always a great choice.
This item is good and is one of the best item on Mordekaiser i take this item like everytime in my build (as 5th or last item) trust me when i say that this item will make you gaining more power and MORE health i really TANK a lot with this item and after gaining some power as 4th item is like the best way to surviving.
- COSMIC: item works as 4th item very well gaining more damage and moviment will help you in ganks and contesting objective.
THIS ITEM IS MY FAVORITE on Mordekaiser is like the best 4th item on him this item give you more speed and more damage and is like going in a gank doing Q and dealing half of the life of the enemy champion, i REALLY think you should always build this item on your build (preferably as 4th)
Q: This ability is the most damage dealer of Mordekaiser so remeber to max it and spam everytime in a fight and in jungle to go faster in camps.
W: This ability is your shield and heal, you should use this ability when your bar is full to get more shield in fights and use it in jungle when you have low health or you wanna heal up.
E: This ability is the most usefull of Mordekaiser so DON'T use it when you are not sure to get the enemy, when you find a champion with a lot of mobility just wait for the right moment because this ability CAN'T be wasted.
R: Basically the best ability for ganking, when you are ganking(WITH OR WITHOUT YOU LAINER)this ability will help you a lot but remeber to not abuse of it, your main quest is to help and not steal kills, OBVIUSLY you want to use your R when your teammate are dying in lain that will safe him and you will get a free kill.
RED START: Starting with your Red is a good choice for dealing burning damage on minions, and my Red rotation is RED>ROCKS>RAPTORS-WOLFS>BLUE>GROMP after that i go to contest the scuttle crab and gank TOP/MID, if the enemy jungler gets the scuttle BEFORE you come GANK MID and go to the other scuttle and do it or you'll loose the first step of jungle
BLUE START: Starting with your Blue is a good choice to have always the full mana, and my Blue rotation is BLUE>GROMP>WOLFS-RAPTORS>RED>ROCKS after that i go to contest the scuttle crab and gank BOT/MID, if the enemy jungler gets the scuttle BEFORE you come GANK MID and go to the other scuttle and do it or you'll loose the first step of jungle
After your first gank you can chioose one of this way:
-You recall: I usually never do this until i have 1300/1600 gold, but if you health is very low after the gank you can recall and buy Boots and Ruby Crystal.
-You go invade: This is risky but even getting a single camp of your enemy can help you a lot to fight the other jungler in early, so do this when you are REALLY SURE to get a camp without fight enemy jungler.
-You gank again: This is pretty simple, you have already ganked a lain but the other lain is been under farm or is in a difficult farm, then your gank will really help him and you may get a kill.
I always do 2 ganks for pressure the other enemy lainer but if my lains are in priority i always go in the enemy jungle because or early game is really strong against every jungler.
For jungle objective you don't really need help from other lains.
The DRAKE is pretty easy you can do it if you are full health(AND IF YOUR LAINS AREN'T BEGIN PUSHED) and can be done at the moment that he spawns just remember that having a little help for the first time with Mordekaiser in jungle is always good.
The HERALD is easy to do even alone with low health just make sure that the enemy jungler isn't near him.
- Try to make Mordekaiser PASSIVE always active while doing half of your camps(RED SIDE/BLUE SIDE, with a bit of pratice you can easly do this (if you use you E through the walls is more easy to maintein)
- Ganks can be difficult to do when you are new as Mordekaiser, my tip is to be sure to grab the enemy with your E and than do your Q and then just AA if you do this you are sure to get a kill or an assist.
the most banned champion when i use Mordekaiser is Lee Sin because he's really strong at the moment and is really easy to use.
Another pick that is the most stronger vs you in early is Shaco so he can be a good ban.
Master Yi is good against you in Mid Game if he's feed so you can ban him if you want.
Morgana is strong so if you're support don't ban her is a really good ban to make because of his range and damage.
Last are those champions that can tank like you or with ranged.
Tanks will be a match when who deal more damage and tanks more win.
Ranged will be a match of trying to catch them, muy advice is to not fight them if you are new with Mordekaiser or fight them when they are in your range.
You can start TeamFights with Mordekaiser R with grabbing the enemy ADC, the enemy TOPLAINER or the enemy JUNGLER (only if he's tanky or ranged).
My advice is to get the most fed and kill him with your R, OBVIOUSLY only if you are sure to kill him, i presonally try to get the ADC because of his high damage but the low health, so you are sure to get the kill him and doing it in a very short time, after that your team could've just already won the TeamFight, if they don't help them to get the last champions of the enemy team and win the fight.
Another thing you wanna do for making sure to get you more stronger is to not focus on one target because your abilities has a lot hitbox so don't aim for just one champion, this because you want also to keep you PASSIVE active at the start of the TeamFight for dealing some damage with it.
One great thing you must have is the first turret of every lain down and the mid 2nd turret down, so make sure to place the at least one HERALD in mid.
Remeber to do the jungle objective afeter EVERY TeamFight, BARON has priority then DRAKES and if there aren't any of these just push one lain, do not waste the won fight.
In this part of the game you really want to have all the enemy INHIBITORS destroyed but an alternative can be 2 INHIBITORS destroyed(MID HAS PRIORITY) or MID INHIBITOR destroyed
I will really like to know your opinion so don't hesitate to letting me know if my build has helped you or you think something can be better in the DISCUSSION section, thanks and HAVE FUN
