Malzahar Matchups Overview

Malzahar General information

Malzahar tips and tricks

If you cannot get kills with your Ultimate Nether GraspR in lane, push the wave and look to roam and make use of it elsewhere.

In team fights, when the enemy engages, use your Ultimate Nether GraspR on the closest enemy champion. Alternatively, you can Flash Nether GraspR and catch an enemy whose alone and too far forward.

Your Passive shield has a very long cooldown in the early game, so you’ll have to play a little safer while it’s down.
