  • Sap Magic will not be consumed if Maokai is at full health.
  • Sap Magic can be used against turrets, but not against inhibitors or the Nexus.
  • Banshee&#039;s Veil item.png Spell shields have no effect, but if Maokai posses a spellshield and it consumes an enemy ability he still receives the cooldown reduction.
