Twisted Advance causes you to rush forward and root the enemy while dealing some damage. The move is great for chasing a moving foe, or jumping forward to start a fight. This move can be used to initiate a team fight, but honestly I think that AD carries are better initiators.
This ability is why I love Maokai, it has so many uses. It can: last hit minions, harass from behind turrets, check bushes, it also does quite good damage when it explodes.
Maokai's ultimate is a perfect tank ult. As long as your team stays in it, they take 20% less damage on top of any armor or magic resist they may have. The important thing to remember is to hit the "R" key again to release the damage. While its damage isn't great by itself, when timed right it can hit the entire enemy team for some hefty magic damage. The trick is waiting long enough to charge it up, but releasing it once you think you've hit its maximum. This spell is guaranteed to get you a lot of assists.
