Tips

Playing As Maokai Maokai
  • 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 Nature's Grasp is unavoidable or takes enemies by surprise.
  • Maokai's passive makes him extremely durable from focus fire spells - so long as he can still basic attack something.
Playing Against Maokai Maokai
  • 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 saplings, as they are much more dangerous.
  • The cooldown on Maokai's self healing is heavily gated on how many times you hit him with spells. Careful about wasting abilities on him.
  • Maokai will avoid taking damage while he's using Twisted Advance Twisted Advance, so don't waste your abilities.

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • Sap Magic Sap Magic
    • Maokai greatly benefits from enemies that keep spamming skills, as it reduces the cooldown of Sap Magic Sap Magic. Casting spells will also reduce its cooldown, but be aware of the mana costs.
  • Sapling Toss Sapling Toss
    • Saplings are empowered when thrown into brush. This makes for easy jungle clears, especially with camps that are near brush such as the buffs and the Krugs.
    • Throwing saplings into a bush grants vision of that bush, making them useful as a sort of ward.
  • Nature's Grasp Nature's Grasp
    • The brambles of Nature's Grasp Nature's Grasp travel slowly, making them easy to avoid. Try to plan when to use them so that the enemy won't have enough time to react, or when they don't have an area to escape to. Additionally, casting the ability diagonally, along with any other skill shots with substantial width, allows it to cover more ground than it would otherwise.
    • The duration of the root scales with the distance the brambles travels.
    • Brambles stop on the first champion hit. Position them in order to root as many champions as possible.
Runes Usage
Item Usage
Countering
  • Be wary of bushes that may have saplings in them. While they last just as long as saplings that land outside of a brush, they deal extra damage.
  • Nature's Grasp Nature's Grasp moves really slowly, and stops on the first enemy champion hit. Avoid getting hit by a bramble.
  • Be mindful of how often you cast abilities. The cooldown on Sap Magic Sap Magic is reduced whenever you cast an ability.
