Table of Contents

  • Introduction

    Hi there, I'll show you what skills to get on with Maokai, its skilling order, and some builds for him.
    With Maokai I ever prefer going alone top, against 2 or 1, but also it's good to go with some ranged ad/ap.

  • Masteries + Runes

    Because as a maokai ever you need a lot of mana (because E spamming), you should get some regen. mana runes.
    Ap OffTank:
    9/0/21
    3xGreater Quintessence of Replenishment
    9xGreater Seal of Replenishment
    9xGreater Glyph of Potency
    9xGreater Mark of Insight

    Tank:
    0/21/9
    3xGreater Quintessence of Resilience
    9xGreater Glyph of Warding
    9xGreater Seal of Resilience
    9xGreater Mark of Replenishment

  • Items

    I ever start with Doran's Ring because you need as an offtank, mana regen and life, but as a tank you need mana regen. and life, works with both builds.
    Ever I go alone as an offtank i get a second Doran's Ring and sometimes i get a third one.
    Going with someone in lane i just get Sapphire Crystal for getting Frozen Heart
    As a tank i wait for a Chain Vest or a Giant's Belt if i got a good early game (1, 2 kills/asists) for getting Sunfire Cape

  • Skilling Order

    With both builds, offtank and tank, i start with Sapling Toss
    Tank order:
    Level 1: , Level 2: , Level 3: and then i level them up with preference: > > >

    OffTank order:
    Level 1: , Level 2: , Level 3: and then i level them up with preference: > > >

  • Summoner Abilities

    With Maokai I ever get Flash and Teleport, but you ever can get Ghost with Flash, or Clarity with Flash.

  • Build Example

  • Working in the team

    As Maokai you ever have to protect your partners also being offtank, because of your ultimate.
    As an offtank after the tank started the fight throw a and jump with into the teamfight "stunning" an AP carry, AD carry or support, and save your for Katarina or Nunu, else use it into the AP/AD Carry to f*** his spells
    As a tank you have to start the fight with and and also use your to "stun" the Carrys.
