Guide Mordekaiser League of Legends S6

Iron Man

(Innate): 35% of the damage dealt from abilities is converted into a temporary absorption shield. Shield generation is only half as effective against minions and monsters. Maximum shield strength is 90 + (30 × level). The shield decays by 3% per second.

Tips :

The OLOL Mordekaiser's passive. Keep in mind that the more champions you hit, the more you fill up your shield.


It allows him to quickly push lanes and ignore the opponent's harass because his health is protected. This second Health bar will also benefit from your resistances. Take one point in W to always be buffed by the shield.


Do not over estimate the power of your shield! It's very strong but you can't 1v9 like a boss all the time. If you are focused, you are likely to go down as fast as other AP Carry.

Mace of Spades (Q)

(Active): On next hit, Mordekaiser swings his mace with such force that it echoes out, striking up to 3 additional nearby targets, dealing magic damage. If the target is alone, the ability deals 65% more damage.

  • Diameter of echo AoE: 600
Tips :

Fly little maces!

It's good for last-hitting and pushing during lane phase. It can hit several targets at the same time and keep pressure. Moreover, the range can hit nearby target. For example, if you can't hit a champion who runs away, use your Q on a minion to hit him with a bounce !


This spell resets your basic attack animation so you can easily make a double attack to finish a minion, a champion or something else.

    Cost: 25 / 32 / 39 / 46 / 53 health

    Cooldown: 8 / 7 / 6 / 5 / 4 seconds

    Magic Damage: 80 / 110 / 140 / 170 / 200 (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) (+0.4 per ability power)

    Single Target Magic Damage: 132 / 181.5 / 231 / 280.5 / 330 (+1.65 per bonus attack damage) (+0.66 per ability power)

Creeping Death (W)

(Active): Mordekaiser unleashes a protective cloud of metal shards to surround an ally or himself, increasing their armour and magic resistance and dealing magic damage per second to enemies in the cloud for 6 seconds.

  • Range: 750
  • Diameter of AoE: 500
Tips :

A metal shield to tank and deal damage!

This shield helps you the entire game. Pushing will be faster and easier in the early stage of the game when you don't have enough AP to one shot waves with your E and Q. It's also a good way to play agressively with the armour and magic resist bonuses.


You can shield your mates too! Put it on a tank who can get a good engage (Malphite, Amumu, Alistar …) to increase his survival.


If you have a Rylai, keep in mind that Creeping Death procs your slow so don't hesitate to use it often, you don't have mana !

    Cost: 26 / 32 / 38 / 44 / 50 health

    Cooldown: 20 / 18 / 16 / 14 / 12 seconds

    Armor & Magic Resist Bonus: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30

    Magic Damage Per Second: 24 / 38 / 52 / 66 / 80 (+0.2 per ability power)

    Maximum Magic Damage: 144 / 228 / 312 / 396 / 480 (+1.2 per ability power)

Siphon of Destruction (E)

(Active): Mordekaiser afflicts all enemies in a cone in front of him, dealing magic damage.

  • Cooldown: 6 seconds
  • Range: 700
Tips :

Some mace hits.


The Mordekaiser's signature spell. You use it to push, harass, regenerate your shield faster and eventually stomp your opponents.


You should know that this is the best spell to use with your passive to pop your shield. The more ennemies you hit, the more shield you get. Mordekaiser's spells cost life but with a Hextech Revolver, you will have spell vampirism to get your health back.


As I said earlier, this spell can be used to push easily. However, Mordekaiser does not have any source of crowd control or any escape if you do not buy Rylai. Thus, pushing your lane in early game can be very dangerous due to ganks. Wait for your Hextech Revolver and play safe during the first minutes of the game.


By pushing, this spell will allow you to help your mates on other lanes or simply to destroy the jungle. In the mid game, if you farmed a lot, you will deal tons of damage.

    Cost: 24 / 36 / 48 / 60 / 72 health

    Magic Damage: 70 / 115 / 160 / 205 / 250 (+0.6 per ability power)

Children of the Grave (R)

(Active): Mordekaiser deals magic damage to the target and curses it for 10 seconds with a damage-over-time effect. The damage is equal to a percentage of the target's maximum health. Mordekaiser heals himself for the damage done.

In addition, 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 20% of their ability power and attack damage. The spirit in turn gains 75% of Mordekaiser's adjusted damage, ability power, and health totals.

  • No cost
  • Range: 850
  • Leash Range: 1125
Tips :

A heal and DoT please!


The ultimate that makes Mordekaiser so strong !


You can use it depending on several situations. If you are in trouble and your shield can't tank damage, if you are facing death, just use your ultimate to instantly regenerate some HP. Moreover, with a Hextech Revolver you can count on an incredible heal and have a greater chance of survival.


If you have DFG (DeathFire Grasp), you can count on a huge burst and one shot the AD Carry. Yes you can admit that he will be the main target in Team Fights. DFG + E + Ultimate + Ignite => He will surely be dead.


The ghost is the most important thing to understand. You can change the fight or the entire game with this ultimate. As I said earlier, the main target is the AD Carry because you can do a large amount of damage with his ghost. You must know that the ghost you retrieve from your opponent is stronger than the original player. You will then have two AD Carries with the ghost while they will have none. Talk about an unfair advantage


However, a good player will know the mechanism of the ultimate and Mordekaiser's actions. It will be very hard to catch a good AD Carry if his team protects him well and if he has a good positioning in Team Fight. Moreover, if the AD Carry has an escape (Ezreal, Corki, Graves), it will be hard to do what you want. The first goal is to survive and use your ultimate and this is hard !


Keep in mind to focus ONE single and ONLY one target to make profitable use of your ultimate and get the ghost.

    Cooldown: 120 / 105 / 90 seconds

    Initial Magic Damage: 12 / 14.5 / 17% (+0.02% per ability power)

    Magic Damage Per Second: 1.2 / 1.45 / 1.7% (+0.002% per ability power)

    Total Magic Damage: 24 / 29 / 34% (+0.04% per ability power)


Mordekaiser is an excellent pusher and can move easily on the other lanes to help your mates or to farm in the jungle.

His shield provides a powerful advantage during the laning phase then in teamfights it increase his sustain.

With a DFG, he's got an awful burst and can OS any carry.

His ultimate makes him interesting and can reverse games alone.

Mordekaiser is a farm machine, women and money are yours!


Unfortunately Mordekaiser is one of the AP carry who has NO escape and must really on Flash.


He doesn't have any crowd crontrol, a Rylai is required to have some.


If you fight against a range or poke champion during the laning phase, it will be hard to keep your shield on.


Your positioning is very important and not easy during teamfights because you will be one of the targets.
