Malzahar gains a stack of Gathering Swarm when he casts other abilities (max 2). On cast, Malzahar summons a Voidling, plus an additional Voidling per stack of Gathering Swarm (max 3 per cast). Voidlings will fight nearby enemies for 8 / 8 / 9 / 9 / 10 seconds.

Voidling attacks deal 5-64.5 (at levels 1-18) (+0.4 per bonus attack damage) plus 12 / 14 / 16 / 18 / 20 (+20% of ability power) (+0.4 per bonus attack damage) magic damage (50% damage against monsters). Voidlings prefer to attack targets afflicted by Malefic Visions or Nether Grasp and deal 300% damage to minions affected by Malefic Visions.

Voidlings have 65-201 health, 16-50 armor and 8-25 magic resist (at levels 1-18). Turret and champion basic attacks kill Voidlings instantly, regardless of health. Voidlings have 400 movement speed and give a bounty of 2 gold when killed.
