Notes

  1. Updated for 14.3 League of Legends Patch.

How to play

  1. You rush Heartsteel.
  2. After Heartsteel, you can rush Titanic Hydra (more fun, damage and some survi) AND/OR Sundered Sky or just go full tank - depending on if you are behind and if your team needs more damage.
  3. Sundered Sky is very good damage item for this build. It scales off your HP (so Grasp, Heartsteel, Overgrowth). It gives damage and pretty good sustain in fights. Remember to switch targets to maximize the effect!
  4. This is auto attack oriented Malzahar build, so do it! Especially if running with Titanic Hydra and Sundered Sky as well.
  5. Guardian's Horn is a surprisingly good item for its price. You can keep it for a very long time (or even have it as 6th item).
  6. Triumph is better (heal + gold), but if you want to have easier time with your mana, go Presence of the Mind.
  7. You need to adapt your items to the game. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  8. Remember to consume your Heartsteel procs!
  9. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can block enemy skillshots with your Void Swarm (W)! Remember that voidlings appear behind you.
Riot
  1. Wait to cast Void Swarm until there are nearby enemies for the Voidling to attack or kill.
  2. Use Call of the Void and Nether Grasp to renew the duration of Malefic Visions on enemies.
  3. Avoiding damage in lane maximizes the uptime on Void Shift, increasing Malzahar's safety dramatically.
