[title][img=skills/mordekaiser/p.png] Passive: Iron Man[/title] [number]35% of the damage dealt from abilities is converted into a temporary shield, absorbing incoming damage. Shield regeneration is half effective versus minions. Minimum shield strength is 120 health, and the maximum is 630 health. The shield decays by 3% per second.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This is why Mordekaiser is more Unique then any other champion in the game its because his passive is one of the Greatest in game. [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 increased by 65%. Cost 25 / 32 / 39 / 46 / 53 health[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This ability is an Amazing 1v1 Ability and still does good Aoe Damage Combined with [img=items/lich-bane.png] Mordekaiser will probably kill any possible champion with just that late game. NOTES: THIS DOESNT DRAW TOWER AGGRESSION WHEN YOU USE IT ON MINIONS AND HITS AN ENEMY CHAMPION. [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 24 / 38 / 52 / 66 / 80 (+20% 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] This ability does Retarded damage late game Its like 3 [img=items/sunfire-cape.png]. Notes: USE THESE ON TANKS IN TEAM FIGHTS WHEN THEY START THE FIGHT THIS ABILITY DOES INSANE DAMAGE LATE GAME. [title][img=skills/mordekaiser/e.png] E: Siphon of Destruction[/title] [number]Mordekaiser damages enemies in a cone in front of him, dealing 70 / 115 / 160 / 205 / 250 (+60% of ability power) magic damage. Cost 24 / 36 / 48 / 60 / 72 health Range 700[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] [imgext=] Mordekasier's Bread And butter Farming skill. This ability is all in 1, Deals damage gives you shield Harass's enemy champions and Gives you the ability to farm like a monster. Notes: Common mistakes by Mordekasier players they use this ability Early and spam it till they die from the health cost, I recommend to Hit all 6 Minions + enemy champion this gives you Maximum shield Early and it gives you a safe 120 Health Shield. REMEMBER FARM FARM FARM EARLY Also Get Wraith camps. Ask your jungle if you can get the Wraith camp to be ahead of your mid lane opponent. [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 [highlight]alt key[/highlight] and using the right mouse button. Range 850[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] THIS WHAT MAKES MORDEKASIER A GAME CHANGER, This ability is the most [highlight]Difficult[/highlight] ability to handle in Mordekasier's kit. Why you ask, its Because your pet wont sometimes respond to your commands and you have to Control it with your ALT key and right Mouse click. Here's another thing some people don't even know who to Ult wait wait wait... Before you Go and say THE AD CARRY GHOST AD CARRY GHOST Wrong your ult will get you in danger because the ad carry is always in the back. So i recommend getting any ghost Because any ghost really does a lot of damage Any ghost, But An Ad Carry ghost is the Best to get by Far but its also the most Difficult because of how hard to get it when you go vs a good team. Heres another Thing Mordekasier worst Enemy is [imgsmall=items/quicksilver-sash.png] By far this item is the complete Mordekaiser counter in the Game it removes both [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/r.png] And [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png]. [imgsmall=items/quicksilver-sash.png] is an [highlight]Active Item[/highlight] so heres a tip Try and last hit the enemy Carry with it.

Your skill Order should be getting your [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/e.png] first And Max this Asap Get [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/r.png] when ever Max your [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/q.png] Second for more damage. Max Your [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/w.png] last. get 1 point in it at level 4. Mordekasier's Combo is very simple and doesnt Require much skill but you need to time it before an enemy flashes Away or ghosts or blinks away. if an Enemy is out of ranged then your combo would be [img=summoners/flash.png]>[img=skills/mordekaiser/e.png]>[img=summoners/ignite.png]>[img=skills/mordekaiser/r.png] ASSUMING IF THEIR UNDER 50% Health. if an enemy champion tries to dual you do not i REPEAT DO NOT STAY TOE TO TOE until their lower health then 50% ASSUMING THIER A BRUSIER LIKE [img=champ/udyr.png] or [img=champ/gangplank.png]. Your combo should Be [img=skills/mordekaiser/q.png][img=skills/mordekaiser/e.png][img=skills/mordekaiser/w.png] KIT THE BRUISER Run TILL YOUR CDS ARE OFF if their lower then 60% or 50% Finish them off with [img=skills/mordekaiser/e.png][img=skills/mordekaiser/q.png][img=summoners/ignite.png][img=skills/mordekaiser/r.png] If Vs a Squishy Target then you should try and close the Distance And hit them With [img=skills/mordekaiser/e.png][img=skills/mordekaiser/q.png][img=summoners/ignite.png][img=skills/mordekaiser/r.png] Any Ranged AD should Be dead by this Combo such as [img=champ/vayne.png] or [img=champ/caitlyn.png] or [img=champ/corki.png]. Heres a Video of me doing a Morde combo but i died for two reasons [youtube][/youtube] [.]i Tanked tower hits too much [.] Underestimated [imgsmall=champ/vladimir.png] skill and damage Heres Another Video Showing a Tower diving but me Utlizing my [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/r.png][imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/e.png] Combo. [youtube][/youtube]

Some items dont work with Mord as well as other champions Such as [imgsmall=items/warmogs-armor.png] this item is a no go for mord. people Argue that morde needs CC and he needs [imgsmall=items/rylais-crystal-scepter.png] i stopped buying this item for a reason. Reason 1 its expensive Reason 2 the slow is pitty that 15% rolf for 1.5 seconds AND ALL MORDE's ABILITY DONT TRIGGER the 35% slow they Trigger the weaker one, I would Rather have [imgsmall=items/randuins-omen.png] Built in slow and Gives mord's Team utility and ad protection AND A SLOW. MUSTS for Early game [item=hextech-revolver] And 1 [item=sight-ward] This Requires at least 1275 gold when you go back This will provide you protection from Early Game Ganks As you need to Farm As the price of [img=items/will-of-the-ancients.png] you shouldnt rush it any more, just keep your [img=items/hextech-revolver.png] untill you have a [img=items/deathfire-grasp.png],Then you can build [img=items/will-of-the-ancients.png] Build [imgsmall=items/haunting-guise.png] then later get [imgsmall=items/liandrys-torment.png] If your going mid you want to build [img=items/abyssal-scepter.png] for the Mage resist and Damage it Gives and MR reduction vs the lane opponent .[highlight] (only build this item if your struggling in lane or if enemy team has a double ap lane such as [imgsmall=champ/ahri.png] mid and [imgsmall=champ/vladimir.png] top lane) [/highlight] Try and Get [img=items/deathfire-grasp.png] asap this core item helps your nuke combo be more efficient and devastating. Item Swaps: you Can Swap [img=items/guardian-angel.png] for [item=randuins-omen] <--- This item gives Mordekasier a SLOW ITS A MUST if your gonna sell G.A. Items you always want for mord is a [img=items/will-of-the-ancients.png] OR [img=items/hextech-gunblade.png]. The Hextech Gunblade is overprice for how much it gives Riot's logic makes no sense at all. But [img=items/will-of-the-ancients.png] IS SOO CHEAPER provides 10 more ap then Hextech AND ITS AN AURA SPELL VAMP so your whole team benefits from it. its more bang for your buck. Items you want Vs Ad heavy: [img=items/ninja-tabi.png][img=items/will-of-the-ancients.png][img=items/zhonyas-hourglass.png][img=items/deathfire-grasp.png][img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png][img=items/randuins-omen.png] Items you want Vs Ap Heavy:[img=items/mercurys-treads.png][img=items/will-of-the-ancients.png][img=items/abyssal-scepter.png][img=items/deathfire-grasp.png][img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png][img=items/guardian-angel.png] Items you want Vs a Balanced team ( i prefer this ):[item=sorcerers-shoes][item=will-of-the-ancients][item=void-staff][img=items/deathfire-grasp.png][item=rabadons-deathcap][img=items/guardian-angel.png]

What items are good for mord and Scale well with him is gonna be the following. In order from the Best to the least. [center][img=items/deathfire-grasp.png][/center] [.]increases overall damage for your abilities [.]amplifies the damage you deal by significant amount [center][img=items/liandrys-torment.png][/center] [.]due to a recent patch its beyond broken on morde [.]build this asap after DFG [.]you're ult should be able to deal 20% of their current health this is an amazing item on him [center][img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png][/center] [.]By far one of the best Ap items in the game. [.]getting this item in any point in game is fine. [.]HELPS YOUR SHIELD REGEN FASTER if you hit your enemies with your ability's. [center][img=items/will-of-the-ancients.png] or [img=items/hextech-gunblade.png][/center] [.]These items are by far the most needed items for mord to stay alive and not kill himself with his abilitys [.]the direct synergy with [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/r.png] is a bit op as it can heal for 600 health only on 200 ap [center][img=items/abyssal-scepter.png][/center] [.]this item is just too good for mord it gives 70 AP and Decent mage resist as it helps him mid lane. [.]the Mage resist reduction works with hextech Active. [center][img=items/guardian-angel.png][/center] [.]this item basically gives mord a second life [.]Works well if you died then [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/r.png]for a chunk of health. [.]YOUR GHOST DOESN'T DIE IF YOU DIE FOR THE FIRST TIME. IT WILL STILL BE ALIVE AND WILL RESPOND TO YOUR COMMANDS WHILE REVIVING USE THIS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE [center][img=items/ninja-tabi.png] or [img=items/sorcerers-shoes.png] or [img=items/mercurys-treads.png][/center] [.]if CC heavy then get [imgsmall=items/mercurys-treads.png]. [.]if no cc and you want to deal more damage [imgsmall=items/sorcerers-shoes.png] [.]if Ad heavy and your getting raped by Bruiser then get [imgsmall=items/ninja-tabi.png]. Optional items: [img=items/quicksilver-sash.png] or [img=items/rylais-crystal-scepter.png]and[img=items/thornmail.png] or even maybe [img=items/warmogs-armor.png]

[img=items/sight-ward.png] WARD WARD remember to ward Jesus Mordekaiser pushes like a monster holy crap you need to ward both sides of the map [imgext=] 1. First priority (marked as \"1\" on the map) are the wards revealing the Dragon and Baron Nashor. These two creatures are very essential for winning the game. After the Dragon spawns (2:30 min) you should have a ward on him and gank your enemies if they try to take it. Also when the mid game begins you also want to ward Baron (spawns at 15:00) because taking it your enemies will have great advantage. 2. Second priority are the buff monsters (marked naturally as \"2\" on the map). The buff monsters provide really good buffs so your enemies will want them. The places they are at, can also be reached by many ways. So if you place a ward on the right place, you can cover 5 - 6 ways plus the buffs so badly needed for the win. 3. Third priority (\"3\" on the map) are the wards preventing the ganks on your lanes. Used mostly during the lane phases and less when the lane phase begins. 4. Fourth priority (\"4\" on the map) are places where you can just cover a fair number of ways or just the most used gank places. Warding such places is most useful if you push a lane and you need vision. (e.g. if you push top, ward the ganking places in the top forest so you wont be surprised). E. Exceptional warding places (\"E\" on the map) are the places where you ward in exceptional cases. If its unsafe to wander into the forest or to see the enemy position in base. The exceptional ward places should be used for the moment. These are not valid places for long term warding. Screens and more you can see in the next chapter. I DO NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR THIS i TOOK THIS FROM A MOBAFIRE GUIDE for THE SAKE OF HOW GOOD IT IS [highlight]Also the Black Circles Are the place where you need to Ward early game as Mord.[/highlight]

Mordekasier doesnt have that many of counters but he wins vs alot of lanes if no jungle pressure is present. ill go from hardest to easiest [imgsmall=champ/zyra.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty=Queue dodge pl0x[/highlight] [.] honestly this match up gets me every time [.]extremely hard to lane vs plants deal a lot of damage [.]Dodging her snare and nuking her at level 11 is the most optimal situation. [imgsmall=champ/cassiopeia.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty = Veteran(hard as hell) [/highlight][.]For this lane its pretty much one sided, she hard counters you waayy too easily, [.]if you want to win this lane you have to go 9/21/0 and with Movement speed Runes to avoid Her Q's [.]wait till level 11 with DFG and Abyssal then you can beat her in lane. [imgsmall=champ/swain.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty = hard[/highlight] [.] again you cant beat this guy till level 11 [.] Running Mr Glyphs vs this match up is very crucial. [.] you might want to run 9/21/0, or MS Quints [.]Higher movement speed the easier this lane is remember that [.]once you get a bit of mr and a DFG you win this lane no problem [imgsmall=champ/rumble.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty= medium /hard[/highlight] [.]due to the recent Nerf's he's MUCH EASIER TO lane vs. [.]once he goes into his overheating mode go Apeshit on his ass. [.]you easily beat this lane if you get DFG [.]remember to hit him with [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/e.png] every time he come's to cs. [.]DONT EVER get hit by his slows if you do you're a dead man. [imgsmall=champ/karthus.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty= EASY/Hard(with jungle ganks)[/highlight] [.]He out ranges you, [.]He can safely farm as his Q has 875 range and your E range has 700 you cant harass him unless he makes mistakes. [.]hes fairly easy but jungle ganks + karthus easy kills on you. [.]Just trade with him a lot once you get DFG. [imgsmall=champ/brand.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty= Medium[/highlight] [.]dodging his stun is the most crucial part of the whole match up [.]try and use MS runes if you know you're gonna have a difficult lane [.]Don't walk up to brand and try and use you're Q unless you've baited out his stun. [imgsmall=champ/vladimir.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty= Easy/Medium[/highlight] [.]trade him when comes up to Q you his range on his Q is very low so you should be able to trade back. [.]vladimir is heavily dependent on his base damage, build mage resist to counter that [.]Rushing a [imgsmall=items/deathfire-grasp.png] will win the lane easy. [imgsmall=champ/ryze.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty= Medium/hard(with jungle ganks)[/highlight] [.]people underestimate ryze's early game it hurts, but remember his range is very short so your able to trade with him equally. [.]try and build [imgsmall=items/abyssal-scepter.png] vs ryze in order to minimize the damage he deals and then trade with him in short bursts.Finally [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png]+[imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/r.png] for the kill. [imgsmall=champ/ahri.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty= Easy/Medium[/highlight] [.]easy lane dodge the charm and proceed to harass the shit out of her. [.]don't trade out in the open try and fight when minions are around in order to insure maximum efficiency vs ahri.( to dodge charms and get shield) [.]if you get caught by her charm its pretty hard to out trade her in damage, try and E her when she has charm on cool down. [imgsmall=champ/anivia.png] [highlight]Lane difficulty= Medium/hard(if she lands her Qs)[/highlight] [.]her Frostbite ability has a short range, E her when she comes in to harass you should be able to out harass her. [.]I highly recommend building mage resist vs Anivia due to her base damage being very high. [.]running Ms runes is very good vs Anivia in order to dodge Q.

This is [img=champ/mordekaiser.png] Biggest Weakness my Advice is to farm and play safe till you reach level 6. You can Achieve level 6 faster if you take your own Wraiths After level 4. Certain champions Can be such a pain for mord Early.

This is where [img=champ/mordekaiser.png] Starts kicking Ass After level 11 you should of won your lane unless you have been camped mid. Remember to get the Core Items Asap and Itemize vs the Enemy team. Another tip Mid game Keep Dragon Warded to Force team fights their. Try and help other lanes if you won your lane Early. wining your lane doesn't mean you won the game it means you need to help other lanes win their lane. this is the most common mord mistakes people ever do they stay mid and farm while their top is like getting craped on. YOU MUST HELP TOP or W/e lane that's in trouble if your jungle is bad counter jungle for your jungler. If you win other lanes you can Force dragons which can Transit into snowballing game with more Team Victory's.

This is when the Beast is born if the Game is Extremely late game Mord Can pretty much 1v1 ANY CHAMPION due to the [img=skills/mordekaiser/q.png]+[img=items/lich-bane.png] You should have around 700-750 ap Your [imgsmall=skills/mordekaiser/q.png] should hit for 1300 for single Targets or even more this Destroy's any one and the spell vamp from that is Retarded high. I recommend to not be too cocky and start team fights you should wait for your tank to go in and soak the CC AND then you go in and Start kicking ass. Hit as many Targets as possible with [img=skills/mordekaiser/e.png] For more shield.

Mordekaiser is Great in any Skirmishes. What I do is wait till the Enemy team used all the Cc possible on my allies then i go in after w/e the damage dealers while their busy fighting my low health allies they will prob ignore me if not back off and Try and kill the squishy's again. if its baron fight use your ult on the lowest health champion in the enemy team it doesn't matter who because if its late game carries will 1 shot you. Get any one, you benefit from them a lot of their stats you can also send the ghost to soak damage this strategy is called Meat bagging ghost. If you want a Carry ghost such as [img=champ/vayne.png] late game the chances are very low Because [img=champ/vayne.png] will pretty much rape you 1v1 so you ask your allies to help you stun her or snare her in order for you to get her ghost. The chances of this happening in A SOLO QUEUE game is very low due to people not coordinating at all. Good Ghosts for Turning around fights are Ranged Ad carries heres a list [img=champ/ashe.png] [img=champ/caitlyn.png] [img=champ/corki.png] [img=champ/ezreal.png] (AD) [img=champ/graves.png] [img=champ/sivir.png] [img=champ/tristana.png] <---- BEST LATE GAME GHOST IN GAME [img=champ/kogmaw.png] [img=champ/twitch.png] [img=champ/vayne.png] Champions that Are front line are Usually fine and OK for ghost (Meat Bagging) [img=champ/drmundo.png] [img=champ/gangplank.png] [img=champ/jax.png] [img=champ/leesin.png] [img=champ/nocturne.png] [img=champ/volibear.png] [img=champ/riven.png] [img=champ/xinzhao.png] [img=champ/zed.png] [img=champ/hecarim.png] [img=champ/garen.png] [img=champ/olaf.png] [img=champ/darius.png] ----> bleed stacks enhanced op [img=champ/shyvana.png] [img=champ/wukong.png] [img=champ/shaco.png] [img=champ/irelia.png] [img=champ/jarvaniv.png] [img=champ/tryndamere.png] <--- best one to have but a bit difficult to get [img=champ/trundle.png] [img=champ/fiora.png] [img=champ/warwick.png] [img=champ/masteryi.png] other Champions Are ethir support or ap champions who don't really help besides give mord 1/5 of their ap to mord.
