Malzahar: Then & Now

Malzahar was the first champion I ever played in League,and even though I spent a short time maining Jax and some supports, Malzahar has been my absolute favorite since back in Season 2. Since that time, I've been fascinated by how his voidlings work, and always wanted to optimize their role in my playstyle. Now, with all of the reworks and changes I've had to make, I'm still confident that hybrid Malz is a strong, viable pick.

When there are Diamond-level AD Malzahar builds, adding the extra AD and on-hit effects to Malzahar's voidlings certainly has an impact. My build maintains a modest amount of AP items, but the extension into AD items gives Malzahar an adaptable style throughout a game, ensuring he can pump out damage no matter what the opponents throw at him.

Update & Edit Log

I do intend on adding to and updating build guide at various points over the years, so I'll keep a track of any and all changes to it here. I look forward to all serious comments and critiques on my build, and will take all of them into consideration as I continue my progress through the ranks. Here is a direct link to my Malzahar match history for Ranked Summoner's Rift games:
