The Fat Cat-tree!

By MiniShyer
My nickname is MiniShyer, I play in LATAM North and I am always having fun with the League of Legends, I'd never focused in ranking but my highest MMR was gold. I main Maokai a year ago and I learned many things this tanky cat can do, hope this guide helps you and I invite you to play Maokai :D
Laning Phase
Maokai usually doesn't have a hard laning phase, most of the time you are able to stomp the laning phase with Maokai.

First of all, you analize the main source of damage of the enemy, in case of magic damage, you rush a mercury threads, AD you rush a tabis. You will want to get the sunfire to help you a little in farming, and if you are missing mana, you can start the glory, or even the rod of ages.
There is nothing tankier than Maokai, you should get inside the whole enemy team and focus their carries, or the squishiest champs, focusing a Jinx, Yasuo, Lee Sin, Teemo, Veigar or Vayne will be fundamental in your teamfights. You better have a team who is up to help you in the fights, because Maokai is really tanky in the fights, but as most tanks, it lacks mobility to escape. Be aware that some attacks may put you in a bad location. In those cases you should store your W to be back into the fight
About the Guide
This guide will be in constant change, while this is my first guide in mobafire. I will try to upgrade it, so I am up for any comment.
