Passive: Sap Magic
Maokai's basic attack also heals him on a moderate cooldown. Each time Maokai casts a spell or is struck by an enemy's spell, this cooldown is reduced.

Q: Bramble Smash
Maokai knocks back nearby enemies with a shockwave, dealing magic damage and slowing them.

W: Twisted Advance
Maokai contorts into a mass of moving roots, becoming untargetable and dashing to the target. Upon arrival, he roots the target.

E: Sapling Toss
Maokai flings a sapling to the target area to stand guard. More effective in brush.

R: Nature's Grasp
Maokai summons a colossal wall of brambles and thorns that slowly advances forwards, damaging and rooting any enemies in the path.

Ally Tips

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

  • 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.

Opponent Tips

  • Saplings will chase the first enemy that gets too close, but detonate after a few seconds or if they collide with other enemies. Be especially careful around brush sapling, as they are much more dangerous.

  • The cooldown on Maokai's self healing is heavily gated on how many time you hit him with spells. Careful about wasting abilities on him.

  • Maokai will avoid taking damage while he's using Twisted Advance, so don't waste your spells.
