Abilities

Edit

Sap Magic

Sap Magic.png

Innate: Periodically, Maokai's next basic attack has an Relentless Force 2.png uncancellable windup and Heal power icon.png heals him for 5 − 45 (based on level) (+ 4.5% − 11% (based on level) maximum health) after a 0.25-second delay.

Sap Magic 2.png

Each time Maokai casts an ability or is struck by an enemy's ability, Sap Magic's cooldown is Cooldown reduction icon.png reduced by 4 seconds.

Sap Magic Bladework.png resets Maokai's basic attack timer, and will not activate if he is above 95% maximum Health icon.png health.

Info
  • Sap Magic does not occur if the attack is Counter Strike.png dodged and/or missed if Maokai is Blind icon.png blinded. It will occur if it is Spirit's Refuge.png blocked.
  • The striking ability has to trigger spell effects such as Disintegrate.png spell damage or Death Lotus.png area damage for the cooldown to be reduced.
  • If Maokai possesses a Spell Shield.png spell shield and it consumes an enemy ability, he will still receive the cooldown reduction.
  • The empowered attack will not trigger against structures nor wards.

Edit

Bramble Smash

Bramble Smash.png

Active: Maokai sends a shockwave in the target direction that deals magic damage to enemies and Slow icon.png slows them by 99% for 0.25 seconds.

Magic Damage:
70 / 110 / 150 / 190 / 230 (+ 40% AP)

Enemies near Maokai are also Stun icon.png stunned for 0.5 seconds and Airborne icon.png knocked back up to 300 units based on their proximity to him.

Info
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the end of the cast time.
  • Unstoppable icon.png Displacement immunity will also resist the application of the Stun icon.png stun.

Edit

Twisted Advance

Active: Maokai Dash.png dashes to the target enemy while being Untargetable icon.png untargetable, dealing magic damage and Root icon.png rooting them for a duration upon arrival.

Magic Damage:
60 / 85 / 110 / 135 / 160 (+ 40% AP)
Root Duration:
1 / 1.1 / 1.2 / 1.3 / 1.4

Info
  • Maokai will track the target if they change locations.
    • He will dash to the target's previous location without applying Twisted Advance's effects if the target is too far away or moves beyond 2000 units.
    • He will stop dashing if the target is too far away the moment the dash begins.
  • Twisted Advance will fail to deal damage and apply the Root icon.png root if the target is Untargetable icon.png untargetable upon arrival.

Edit

Sapling Toss

Sapling Toss.png

Active: Maokai Projectile.png flings a Sapling to the target location, granting Sight icon.png sight of the area.

Once landed, a Sapling remains stationary for 30 seconds or until it reacts to the first nearby visible enemy, chasing them for up to 2.5 seconds. The Sapling explodes upon colliding with an enemy or when it expires, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies upon detonation, capped at 300 against non-champions, and Slow icon.png slowing them by 35% for 2 seconds.

Magic Damage:
20 / 45 / 70 / 95 / 120 (+ 7 / 7.25 / 7.5 / 7.75 / 8% (+ 0.7% per 100 AP) of target's maximum health)

A Sapling placed in Brushmaker.png brush instead lasts 30 (+ 2.5% bonus health) seconds and deals double damage to struck targets over 3 bursts as well as Reveal icon.png revealing them for 3 seconds. The first instance of damage is dealt instantly and the second and third instances occur each 0.75 seconds thereafter. The total damage is capped at 600 against non-champions.

Total Increased Damage:
40 / 90 / 140 / 190 / 240 (+ 14 / 14.5 / 15 / 15.5 / 16% (+ 1.4% per 100 AP) of target's maximum health)
Increased Damage Per Tick:
13.33 / 30 / 46.67 / 63.33 / 80 (+ 4.67 / 4.83 / 5 / 5.17 / 5.33% (+ 0.46% per 100 AP) of target's maximum health)

See Pets for more details about Saplings.

Info
  • Applies Death Lotus.png area damage from a normal Sapling and deals Blaze.png persistent damage to enemies hit by an empowered Sapling.
  • Saplings have a base movement speed of 400, increased based on Maokai's boots:
  • Sapling Toss grants Sight icon.png sight of the target location even while the Sapling is in flight.
  • The Saplings will continue to chase their target even if they lose Sight icon.png sight of them (but they do not prioritize champions so they will chase the first target they encounter).
  • Saplings will appear on the map as minions despite being untargetable and invulnerable.
  • Saplings cannot stack on top of each other (they will move a short distance away from one another if they are aimed at the same location).
  • Spell Shield.png Spell shield does not negate the damage from an empowered Sapling.
  • The damage of empowered Saplings is equally split into chunks of 66.7% of the normal Sapling damage every second, once immediately, and then at the 1 and 2 second mark.
  • The Sapling will stop its movement upon colliding with Unbreakable Unbreakable.
  • Saplings attack Baron Nashor Baron Nashor always at the same two points, no matter where they were placed.

Edit

Nature's Grasp

Nature's Grasp.png

Active: Maokai summons a colossal wall of five thorny brambles that slowly advances in the target direction, accelerating over time, each stopping when they collide with an enemy Champion icon.png champion.

Each bramble deals magic damage to enemies hit and Root icon.png roots them for 0.8 − 2.6 (based on distance traveled) seconds.

Magic Damage:
150 / 225 / 300 (+ 75% AP)

Info
  • The brambles are made up of 4 Projectile.png missiles each which trail 100 units behind one another. The front missile carries the visual effect. When colliding with a champion, all missiles of one bramble are destroyed simultaneously.
    • Missiles destroyed by other means such as Samira's Samira's Blade Whirl Blade Whirl may not destroy their fellows from the same branch, resulting in one or more invisible missiles that may still collide.(bug)
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the start of the cast time.

Pets

Target type Minion icon.png Minion (Untargetable icon.png untargetable)

Maokai is a rageful, towering treant who fights the unnatural horrors of the Shadow Isles. He was twisted into a force of vengeance after a magical cataclysm destroyed his home, surviving undeath only through the Waters of Life infused within his heartwood. Once a peaceful nature spirit, Maokai now furiously battles to banish the scourge of unlife from the Shadow Isles and restore his home to its former beauty.
