Guide to Playing with Mordekaiser

  • Iron Man gives Morkerkaiser a shield reducing incoming damage; this works well when you've hit enemies with your skills.
  • Use Children of the Grave on enemy ADRs because the ghost versions only do basic attacks. This can dramatically shift a teamfight as you have the additional damage of their ADR on your side.
