Maokai is a tank champion. In addition to being able to receive a lot of damage by his team, due to his resistance and regeneration, Maokai also has great crowd control power. Due to this potential, this champion is very powerful in team fights. Typically, this champion is used in the top lane.



Champion Description

“Maokai is an enraged great being who fights the supernatural terrors of the Shadow Isles. He grew into a vengeful force after a magical cataclysm destroyed his home, surviving only through the Waters of Life that are infused at its core. Once a peaceful spirit of nature, Maokai now battles furiously to banish the scourges of undeath from the Shadow Isles and restore the former beauty of his home.”

Maokai's Abilities

(Passive) Magic Sap: Maokai's basic attack also heals him on a moderate cooldown. Whenever Maokai casts a spell or is hit by an enemy's spell, this cooldown is reduced.

(Q) Spiny Crush: Maokai knocks back nearby enemies with a shockwave, dealing magic damage and slowing.

(W) Twisted Dash: Maokai transforms into a walking mass of roots, becoming untargetable and dashing towards the target. Upon arrival, it roots the target.

(E) Throw Seedlings: Maokai throws a seedling at the target area to stand guard, being most effective in bushes.


(R) Nature's Claws: Maokai summons a colossal wall of thorns that slowly advances, dealing damage and rooting enemies in its path.
