So what's the status of Gunblade Mordekaiser these days? Has it fallen by the wayside? I'm trying to remember what was the name of the author who actually recommended maximizing his W (the metal shield) first, then Q to take advantage of Gunblade by level 9. Can anyone point me in the right direction, if it's still considered viable?

Rylai's Crystal Scepter scales way better with Liandry's Torment. And Hextech Gunblade cost very much and you also pay for stats you don't want at all, like AD or lifesteal.

The comparison:

Rylai's+Spirit
4900 gold
130 AP
500 HP
10% CDR
20% Spellvamp
15% constant slow
Wasted: 10 mana regen, 20% Smite CDR, 25% more damage against monsters

Gunblade:
3400 gold
65 AP
20% spellvamp
150+40% AP bonus damage active with a 2 seconds slow by 40%
Wasted: 45 AD, 10 % lifesteal


You waste way more gold at Gunblade than Rylai's+Spirit. And if you look at the stats, Rylai's+Spirit offer way more than Gunblade.

bwhahaha just ignore everything nicknamemy says about Morde, I don't think he even plays the guy.

Gunblade is still a good item on Morde, it hasn't fallen by the wayside. The only problem with it is that you don't really want to upgrade your revolver before you have tons of damage because of the high cost and it being more a sustain item then a high damage item, so you probably want gunblade as a 3rd item after your dfg + deathcap or zhonya's/liandry's + combination of those items or something.

also don't bother maxing Q or W first, E all the way. I mean for jungling maybe but...meh.

it's not really wasted on Mace but he pretty much never auto attacks unless the enemy is dumb enough to just stand there and take the abuse he gives them.

Morde needs a zhonyas in his build unless he plans on building warmogs/ga. Period. I usually grab an early kages pick into revolver into haunting, and its pretty situational from there on.
