This guide will show Dyrus' way of playing and building Morde. I will cover all the basics and provide and video/replay to view and compare. Instead of VMan7's pure AP morde this will be based on a more sustained safer build that allows you do to good most of the time. In other words it is safer to go hybrid tanky then to just go pure AP. Still, it all depends on your opponents.

Reds - Magic Pen for your ult. Yellows - Health regeneration for your health bar which is the source of your shield, spells, survival, and such. Blues - More AP dmg = better shield. Quints - Same thing except throughout the game. Starting with amp tome will also become easier as you see your shield fill up through one E.

[title][img=skills/mordekaiser/p.png] Passive: Iron Man[/title] [number]25 / 27.5 / 30% of the damage dealt from abilities is converted into a temporary shield, absorbing incoming damage. Minimum shield strength is 120 health, and the maximum is 630 health. The shield decays by 3% per second.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Morde wouldn't be morde if he didn't have this. It allows him to tank so much extra damage. [title][img=skills/mordekaiser/q.png] Q: Mace of Spades[/title] [number]On next hit, Mordekaiser swings his mace with such force that it echoes out, striking up to 3 additional nearby targets, dealing his attack damage plus 20 / 40 / 60 / 80 / 100 bonus damage (+40% of ability power). If the target is alone, the bonus damage is doubled. Cost 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50health Range 600[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Great for 1v1's with lichbane proc. If you're pure AP you can hit people for a ridiculous amount of damage. [title][img=skills/mordekaiser/w.png] W: Creeping Death[/title] [number]Unleashes a protective cloud of metal shards to surround an ally, increasing their armor and magic resistance by 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 and dealing 20 / 35 / 50 / 65 / 80 (+15% of ability power) damage per second to enemies in the cloud for 6 seconds. Cost 26 / 32 / 38 / 44 / 50health Range 750[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Makes you tankier and allows you to farm easier. [title][img=skills/mordekaiser/e.png] E: Siphon of Destruction[/title] [number]Mordekaiser damages enemies in a cone in front of him, dealing 65 / 110 / 155 / 200 / 245 (+40% of ability power) magic damage. For each unit hit, Mordekaiser's shield absorbs an additional 6 / 9 / 12 / 15 / 18 health. Cost 24 / 36 / 48 / 60 / 72health Range 700[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Your main source of aoe damage, that you can cast ever few seconds. Your main farming ability spell. [title][img=skills/mordekaiser/r.png] R: Children of the Grave[/title] [number]Curses an enemy champion for 8 seconds, stealing 3 / 3.5 / 4% life per second, plus an additional 0.1% per 50 AP. If the target dies while under the effect of the curse, their soul is enslaved and will follow Mordekaiser for 30 seconds. During this time, Mordekaiser gains 25% of their ability power, and attack damage. The spirit gains 65 / 75 / 85% + (+100% of ability power) of Mordekaiser's adjusted damage, ability power, and 50% + (+100% of ability power) of Mordekaiser's health. Pets can be controlled by holding the alt key and using the right mouse button. Range 850[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Allows you to take their champion and make them your own with enhanced physical attack. If you catch someone near Dragon or Baron or even a tower, you can use them as a meat shield to tank all the damage which gives you a huge edge in fights, especially if they're really tanky or if they do A LOT of damage.

Max E first for maximum farming. Max W Second if you're getting harassed really badly. Max Q Second if you're harassing them really badly. User Preference. (Always get R duh)

Starting Items [item=boots-of-speed][item=health-potion3] OR wait in spawn for 1 more (Gives you lane control) [item=cloth-armor][item=health-potion5] (Against heavy physical harassers like ashe/pantheon [item=amplifying-tome][item=health-potion] (Great for your shield or getting wraiths) Core Items Early Game [item=hextech-revolver] (sustain) [item=spirit-visage] (even more sustain and allows your healers to heal you more which tanks more damage, also the MR and life regen helps a bunch) Items You want to have [item=rylais-crystal-scepter] (Allows you to catch people and has everything you need, without the mana) [item=guardian-angel] (The item that wins most games, allows your illusion to stay up if you die with it on, as you revive you control the illusion for maximum damage) Viable Boots [item=ninja-tabi] (vs alot of physical attackers) OR[item=mercurys-treads](for movement/survival vs CC) OR[item=sorcerers-shoes] (You want to hit as hard as possible) Your end game build should look something like Boots + [item=hextech-gunblade][item=rylais-crystal-scepter][item=spirit-visage][item=guardian-angel][item=lich-bane] (All user preference but this is what I mainly have) You can trade out lich bane with some other effective item that counters your enemies like randuins or abyssal scepter depending on what they have. You can also trade out spirit visage for more cost effective items if you feel it is not producing results.

Mordekaiser is a great pub stomper, and a game saver. You can always count on him as a cool dude who will be a strong laner that will rape everyone else and farm really hard. I do recommend him for any map and any level competetiveness, if they let me use him at dreamhack I would have.
