Malzahar skirts the line between dimensions, activating Void Shift after avoiding direct damage for 30 / 24 / 18 / 12 seconds. During Void Shift, Malzahar takes 90% reduced damage and is immune to crowd control. Malzahar loses Void Shift 0.25 second after taking damage from a non-minion source or blocking a crowd control effect.

Malzahar opens two portals to the void. After a 0.25 cast time and a 0.4 second delay, the portals fire projectiles which deal 70 / 105 / 140 / 175 / 210 (+55% of ability power) magic damage and silence champions for 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds.

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.

Malzahar inflicts terrible visions, dealing 80 / 115 / 150 / 185 / 220 (+80% of ability power) magic damage over 4 seconds. Applying Call of the Void or Nether Grasp to the victim during this time refreshes the visions. If the victim dies, Malzahar gains 2% of his maximum mana and the visions spread to the nearest enemy. Malefic Visions will also execute any minions below 15-45 health.
