Threats & Synergies
A decent Fiora will melt you down not questions asked
This needs to be explained a little. While Darius is not a real hard matchup, he is until you get Gunblade. Also his level 6 is stronger and he will beat you, after level 6 you have the advantage as long as you have Gunblade. Just make sure to avoid his Q's or stand right inside them to negate damage and his passive stacks. He also has a power spike at level 11 and depending on if your ahead he could beat you if you are even.
Only reason for placing him even is if you mess up early game some how, you need to abuse him early and freeze the lane near your turret to prevent him from getting stacks. If you do this you will easily win against him, failure to do so and you will have a hard time but it is still possible.
Play safe till level 6 and just poke when you can, at level 6 just ult her and beat her down. She will win most trades if she has minions and passive stacks.
If you dodge most of his Q's you will win, if you don't dodge them you will lose.
If your playing at least OK you will beat him.
Easier to kill between levels 1-10, as soon as he gets 2 items, you will start to lose unless you are ahead. His E really messes you up, even more so if you don't get an auto off at all to proc your passive. If he misses his counterstrike then you can probably smash him.
You will be destroyed early game and he can even turn it around mid-late game. If your against kled try to get ganks, but kled is pretty good at 1v2's so be aware.
You beat her easily until level 11, as soon as she scales she has a much better chance, it can go either way after level 11.
You completely smash Sylas.
Slows and a stun and a wall to block you, yeah not fun. Her being immobile and nothing to boost her movement speed is something you need to abuse, if you can land you E and proc your passive she is as good as dead.
All you need to do is ult at the right time and you win. Avoid he E in lane and you should be fine.
Hard to catch due to his W and he can blind you preventing your auto attacks, if you get off an E, Q, Auto combo he is dead. Also suggested to get sweeper as lane phase ends since he can use them to kite you.
Play safe until you get your first item, once you have gunblade simply just poke him a bit and then ult and kill him. Be careful since Urgot can turn it around. A quick tip is to try and fight him close to the wall in your ult to potentially prevent some SHOTGUN KNEES.
Champion Build Guide
- Strong Sustain after first item with the combination of these runes
- Very tanky for what you build
- Extreme amounts of damage after 2+ items
- No mana = more time in lane
- Very slow without passive proc and these runes
- Kited very easily by some champions
- Meh early game
- Struggles against mobile ranged matchups
Passive - Darkness Rise
Mordekaiser gains a medium sized circle around himself after successfully land 3 attacks or abilities on enemies which deals magical damage equal to 1-5% of the enemies health per second + 8-25 magical damage and 0.3 of his ability power while also gaining 3-9% bonus movement speed.
This also gives Mordekaisers auto attacks additional magic damage equivalent to 40% of his ability power.
Q - Obliterate
Morde will smash the ground with his hammer dealing the base damage + 60% of his ability power to all enemies within the hit area. If it hits a single target the damage is increased by 30-50%.
W - Indestructible
Morde will shield himself for 30% of the damage he deals and 15% of the damage he takes. When Morde activate Indestructible a decaying shield that lasts for 4 seconds is created that can shield Morde for 5-30% of his health. Morde can then recast Indestructible to consume the shield and it will heal him for 40-50% of the shield amount.
E - Death's Grasp
Morde will send out a claw which will grab enemies within its radius and pull them towards him dealing base damage + 60% of his ability power.
This also grants Morde between 5-25% passive magic penetration depending on spell level.
W - Realm of Death
Mordekasier will target a champion and slow them by 75% and after 0.5 seconds will send them into a 1v1 small area with him and will not be able to escape for 7 seconds. Morde also steals 10% of the stats during Realm of Death and will keep the 10% stats he stole if the enemy dies until they respawn. Other champions and minions can not help in Realm of Death, but turrets can still hit both players inside.
