Coming from someone who's played a lot of Maokai, and had the #1 guide for a time, he's certainly worth it.

20% damage reduction on his ult as well as a really solid kit for tanking and initiating. He's perfect.

Indeed. First time I tried him I wasn't convinced, then I tried him again with more offensive runes/masteries and realized he had a huge potential for zoning and disrupting lanes. He is one of my most played champions, solo top or bot support/tank. With an aggressive laner you can wipe a lane real fast or just keep tossing saplings to keep the enemy from harassing your teammate. His damage doesn't scale well late game but you will be raking in assists like crazy.

Hes very strong early game but falls off later on not to point of being useless but his real power is early on getting lanes fed with good ganks.

20% damage reduction, zoo bad late game ohmagerd.
2 second root? what should you be using that for anyways?
A shortknockup paired with a 50% slow? so.. ****ing.. useless!
A bushchecker for dragon and baron fights, wtf are you gonna use dat **** for.
Don't even get me started on that useless passive of his that only gives him 7% hp each time he attacks in a team fight, like really... that's only like 250 hp late game.
I agree, this champ totally falls off later.
Ty MM and Blood for the sigs :3 | Rammus is comming back - heard it here first!
