Notes

  • Malady item Malady's magic resistance shred was able to bring an enemy's magic resistance below zero.
  • The very first auto attack did not get the benefit of the magic resistance reduction. Any magic damage from the auto attack was calculated first, and the debuff was applied after. This means the full benefit of the reduction was seen on the 8th hit after all 7 stacks had been applied.
  • Malady item Malady was beneficial on champions that rely on attack speed and on-hit effects.
    • WarwickSquare Warwick is a great example of such; his bonus magic damage and abilities that apply on-hit effects benefit greatly from the added magic reduction and magic damage, as well as his basic attacks being supplemented by the AS.
  • Malady item Malady's passive was not named. It was not Spellblade, so it stacked with Lich Bane item Lich Bane and similar items.
  • Malady item Malady's own AP bonus granted extra 2.5 magic damage per auto attack.
    • Malady item Malady's on-hit damage becomes as strong as Wit's End item Wit's End's at 270 AP.

Trivia

Malady old

The Old Malady, and also the Oponn's Razor

  • Malady originally had a red tint over a purple tint in the icon, gave life steal, and was built with Vampiric Scepter item Vampiric Scepter instead of Amplifying Tome item Amplifying Tome. It also did not reduce the enemy's magic resistance, and had the same stat of a removed alpha item called Oponn's Razor item Oponn's Razor.
  • Malady used to be mentioned in KayleSquare Kayle's tips after its removal.
