Cost Analysis

Similar Items

Strategy

  • This item helps attack damage-based champions against teams with strong magic damage.
  • The shield can block the initial burst of damage from an enemy champion and give the owner an opportunity to attack or retreat. It is very useful against AP casters with long cooldowns, such as  Morgana and  Ziggs.
  • More magic resistance will increase the effective shield value, as more magic damage will be required to destroy the shield.
  • Attack Damage champions who benefit from being at low health (e.g.  Tryndamere,  Olaf,  Aatrox) can put it to great use. Their low-health passives combined with the item's AD effect, and the shield allows them to stay at lower health more safely.

Trivia

  • At 30% of total health, when this item's shield activates, it provides the maximum 35 bonus AD.
  • Maw of Malmortius is named after a well-known community member known as "Malmortius" (also answers to "Lord Voldemortius", "Malmorpheus" and "James") for obtaining over one thousand referrals.
