Guide to Countering Malzahar

  • If you see Malhazar using Nether Grasp on one of your allies, throw him a stun or other disable to save your ally from being immobilized.
  • Try to learn the mechanics of Call of the Void so you avoid getting silenced by it.
  • Most of Malzahar's damage comes from his minions instead of his DoT ability. They also help him get a lot of CS. You should prioritize killing his minions to counter Malzahar.
  • Malzahar counters squishy champions in 1:1 fights, but he's not very strong in team fights. In particular, if you are facing Malzahar and have less than 50% health, you should really consider fleeing. His combo of damage and suppression will likely guarantee him a kill if he can get on top of you.
