Maokai the Twisted Treant!

Hey guys. Well my plan to get elo up was a bust some many trolls. so I'm at 1518 right now 1 point from gold >.> I'll try getting it up later but I've been busy playing Zelda:SS and trying to get this job.

League news! 

IGN Pro League Presents the Killing Spree Tournament! The IPL, which ran the IPL 3 Origin preseason Challenger Circuit event, has just announced the launch of their Prized Event tournament series: the IPL Killing Spree. Unlike the standard IPL events, the Killing Spree Tournament Series will feature weekly matches in a King of the Hill format. Each week, new challengers will appear to attempt to dethrone last week’s reigning champion. The longer each champion holds their top spot, the more money they will earn from each victory! For a more in depth look at exactly how the prizing grows from week to week, and for official rules, click here!

And what’s more, if your team meets the 1700 Elo requirement, you can apply to compete by clicking here!

The first weekly installment of the IPL Killing Spree will begin next Thursday, the 12th of January, and will feature A Picture of a Goose vs. Counter Logic Gaming! Each match will be shown on the IPL web site and will feature commentary, so don’t forget to mark your calendar!

So theirs that. Now on to the champion of the week!

Maokai the Twisted Treant!

Saplings from  Sapling Toss are not targetable and are invulnerable, but appear on the minimap.

Sapling Toss gives vision over the target area on cast, even while the projectile is mid-flight.
 Twisted Advance will stop mid dash if the target dies or turns untargetable.

If a dash skill is used during the Twisted Advance animation, you will jump to the point where they are after dashing. This does not work on long distance dashes, such as  Nocturne's  Paranoia,  Shen's  Stand United, and  Twisted Fate's  Gate.

Sap Magic (passive): Each time a champion near Maokai casts a spell, he gains a charge of Magical Sap. When he has 5 charges, Maokai's next melee attack drains energy from his target, healing him for a percentage of his maximum HP.

Arcane Smash: Maokai slams the ground, the force of which knocks nearby enemies back and sends an arcane shockwave forward, damaging and slowing his enemies.

Twisted Advance: Maokai dissolves into a cloud of arcane energies. He regrows near a target enemy, dealing damage and rooting it in place.

Sapling Toss: Maokai hurls a sapling, dealing damage on impact. The sapling becomes implanted in the ground, warding a nearby area. When enemies approach, the sapling attacks, exploding in an arcane blast that damages enemies.

Vengeful Maelstrom (ultimate): Maokai shields his allies by drawing power from hostile spells and attacks, reducing non-tower damage done to allied champions in the area. Maokai can prolong the effect as long as he has mana to spend on it. When the effect ends, Maokai unleashes the absorbed energy to deal damage to enemies within the vortex.

Here's His Champion Spotlight from Riot.

Now this tree is freaking good at what he does. Interrupt people and tank like a boss. He's also a great jungler if you have the right runes. Usually either Solo top or Jungler. I would play him as a Jungler truthfully. Is ganks are super good. Stun+Knock up so good. I would build him as a cd reduction tank.

Items: Starting Items:
Regrowth Pendent
Health Potion

Follow up with:
Boots of Speed
Philosophers Stone
Heart of Gold

Depending On Opposing Team's damage (read item section):

Shurelyas Reverie

Depending on Opposing Team's damage:

Finally if you STILL have money:

Well that's it for Maokai, Next is!
