Malzahar, the Prophet of the Void is a mage/assassinchampion with spells that focus on damage over time. Through a combination of his summoned minions, heavy crowd control and potent magic damage, Malzahar can melt through enemy health in seconds.
Passive: On every fourth ability use, Malzahar summons a Voidling that remains on the field until it is killed or 21 seconds have passed. If Malzahar dies, the Voidling stays behind but stops attacking.
Voidlings grow in size after 7 seconds, gaining 50% bonus attack damage and armor, and frenzy after 14 seconds, gaining 100% bonus attack speed.
Summon Voidling is a passive ability that gains a charge every time Malzahar uses a champion ablity. After gaining 3 charges, Malzahar's next ability cast will consume the charges to summon a Voidlingpet.

Active:Malzahar opens up two portals to the Void which, after a 0.5-second delay, silence all enemies caught between them and deal them magic damage.
Nether Grasp is a channeledtether-like damage over time ability. While in range of the tether, the target takes magic damage every 0.5 seconds. Both the suppression and tether are removed if the channel is stopped or interrupted.
Nether Grasp's suppression and tethered damage effects are separate. If the suppression is removed, Nether Grasp will continue to deal damage unless the channel is interrupted or the tether is broken by moving away.
Probably Bug: Olaf'sRagnarok will remove both the suppression and the tethered damage, and it will also prevent Malzahar from forming the tether if Ragnarok is already active (putting Nether Grasp on cooldown with no effect).
Like all channeled abilities, Nether Grasp will be interrupted by hard crowd control like stuns and silences, and will end prematurely if Malzahar attempts another action, e.g. moving or casting other abilities.
Voidlings gain bonuses to their attack damage, armor and attack speed as they last out on the field. After 7 seconds, they gain 50% increased armor and attack damage. After 14 seconds, they gain increased attack speed.
Enemy turrets will prioritize Voidlings directly above the chain of melee minions.
Possible Bug: When Malzahar dies, any active Voidlings will become idle for the rest of their lifespan. Occasionally, if Voidlings have an attack target when Malzahar dies, they will continue to chase their target - but they will not deal damage.
