Maokai Matchups Overview

Maokai General information

Maokai tips and tricks

Before engaging with your Twisted AdvanceW, always check the positioning of your ADC. You shouldn’t go in unless your ADC is in a position to follow up.

When roaming around the map, place Saplings Sapling TossE in nearby bushes to scout for vision. You can also place Saplings Sapling TossE in the bot lane

Maokai’s Ultimate Nature's GraspR is great in team fights. Once you engage with your Ultimate Nature's GraspR, fall back and protect your ADC and peel for them.
