Guide to Synergizing Lissandra and Maokai

Tips for Playing as Lissandra with Maokai

You can instantly use your ultimate on yourself by pressing the self cast key and the ultimate key at once (alt+R by default).

Lissandra's abilities are shorter range than those of many mages. As a result, buying items that offer both ability power and defense, like Zhonya's Hourglass and Banshee's Veil, can be a great choice to help her both survive and deal damage.

Casting Glacial Path and then running in the opposite direction will leave your enemies uncertain which way you will actually go.

Advice to Understand How Maokai Will Play

Try looking for flanks or other situations where Nature's Grasp is unavoidable or takes enemies by surprise.

Maokai's passive makes him extremely durable against focus fire from spells - so long as he can still basic attack something.

Saplings can be tossed into brush for empowered effect - but don't stack well.
