Quick tips to play Malzahar

When a minion is infected with your

MalzaharEE

, make sure you finish off the minion off before the infection leaves. If you kill an infected minion, it will infect another closeby enemy.

If you’re unable to kill the enemy laner, make your way to the bottom or top lane to assist your allies.

In team fights look to use your

MalzaharRR

on the enemy who is closest to your allies. Locking them down will result in an easy kill for your team.
