Summoner Spells Back to Top

I Summoner Spells
      The most common set of summoner spells, Ignite and Flash work really well on Ap Maokai. Flash to get a kill, but I usually use it to get away. Ignite during your combo burst for the best results. Not much to go into detail about here.

I. Order

      This order usually works the best. Occasionally you would level up W so you can lower the CD on the root. Other than that, your saplings will do most of the damage in quick succession. 

II Burst Combo

      For the best burst in lane, I recommend using your sapling on where your opponent will be, it takes time and patience to master this, especially with minions out there, but if the sapling lands, or is near the opponent, W in. After you W in you should use your Q to finish off the burst. Q in the direction of the sapling.

Best Burst Combo - E(on top of enemy)->W->Q. If you have your ult use it on the opponent before you go in.

III Jungle Gank

      When your jungler ganks, just W in and Q, and worry about your sapling last. The Q will give you and your jungler, who hopefully also has CC, enough time to finish off the opponent, if not make them go base.

Jungle Gank - W->Q->E

VS

Ahri

Medium

Ahri has always been a slippery champion. If you play the lane right, and don't let her farm, you should win this matchup. But if she times it right, she can easily bait you into the jungler's gank and you will get killed no doubt. Play as if you were a slippery champion, and only go in when you know there isn't going to be jungler in your face. 

VS

Anivia

Easy

If you avoid her stun, this lane is yours to win. She is squishy, and with your burst you should be able to harass her down to go base within 2-3 bursts. Get that passive down ASAP. Once you get the passive down, try and all-in her.


VS

Annie

Hard

In the current meta, Annie is probably one of the strongest AP Casters in the game. She can run 0/21/9 masteries and still destroy your health, and for that reason she is a tough matchup no matter where she is. Her 1.75 second stun wrecks in team fights, and you have to beware her damage even at a low AP. 

VS

Fizz

Hard

This would usually be a very hard lane, but since you are both melee auto attack this lane can be yours. Don't pick into this lane matchup though, as you will probably regret it as soon as he hits 6, just play aggressive until 6. 

VS

Kassadin

Easy

You NEED to take him on pre-6. You are still strong before your ult, all you need to do is land a sapling and all-in him. If you are at a stalemate and he reaches 6, you're boned. 

VS

Katarina

Easy

As Maokai, you don't mind duelling it out with the opponent. Katarina is an easy opponent with Maokai because your burst is better than hers, and you can heal it back up easily with your passive. Maokai wins this lane if you don't get ganked and die early.

VS

Morgana

Medium

Her shield counters Maokai's burst pretty hard. Try and bait out her shield before a gank, or before you burst with your R-E-W-Q combo.

VS

Ziggs

Hard

Ziggs is probably the best laner right now in mid. He has great wave clear, tons of AoE, and his passive makes him harass you a lot. Don't pick into this.
