Introduction

Hello there! I see you need a conquest build well here ya go. i had a build for high mana - low cool down for casual play. and now i have a build for something more competitive. a few people asked "well why not poly?" and "poly is a core item" Yes! it IS! this is my build for Mid lane that does in fact include poly - so don't worry guys! my first Morrigan Build was just for fun times in arena or clash - however i did say it would work anywhere - yes my last build can work in mid but this is much better and in depth

Also i added all other mages to the "threat" area. ranking them and why. ;)

Morrigans Combo

at full build she can be extremely scary her main combo is

- Initiate with Deadly Aspects
- Followed by a Basic attack
- Then Dark Omen
- finally, 1 to 3 Basics Attacks depending on how tanky

This typically can shut some one down instantly, as long as you hit all your basics.
it also depends on any protections that they might have or if they use any healing items or relics another Dark Omen should be up.
If being sneaky - engage with Confusion
If they got away that's okay. if you can chase - right fully do so. but if you cant secure it - don't feel bad, sometimes prey just slip away

Tips!

When playing The Morrigan remember:
- Keep track of everyone's build. Your build does not transfer over when ulting as someone. however your relics do.

- Always call when your opponent is missing whether dead - going to red. mid laners typically gank duo lane so to help them call it.

- Be sure to call "be careful left / right" (VC1 / VC3 on pc) you will usually see their jungler going left / right for whatever reason you want your team to prepare for a gank just in case.

- Don't be afraid to help Duo in certain cases: they are getting ganked, they need a gank, your opponent is gone/dead/afk. if they are dead early game don't bother - they will be up soon. I don't suggest helping solo until some of your damage items are up (at least soul reaver) they are real tanky over there

- You also need to know certain rotates to escape. The Morrigans escape isn't too great - how ever she can be very slippery with it. send the clone one way and go a route that you've personally made or even circle around the enemy if they are chasing you - send the clone forward. Be careful when doing this if you get hit by someone chasing you it can be all over. (if you are going to use this tactic - make sure there is space)

- Dont be afraid to ult out. people will have better escapes then you. use them. but call out if your ult is down

- keep any buff you get in mind. if you have red buff and you need to escape - escape fast. your buff will not appear on the clone.

- A tip to remember in Deadly Aspects. there is an audio queue for when she is in her stance. so if you are invisible during Confusion More experience players may be able to detect you and prepare for the stun/.

I loved the Anubis description on the threats, I super agree!!!

I would say to include that the extra damage from power pot is a risky strat as you lose it when you die and then it would not have done a thing apart from setting you behind by 500 gold

Oh yeah never buy Power pot from behind and especially early game, you just delay your core items further and put yourself behind more.

Some suggestions:

1. Pestilence and some of the other defensive options you listed are not good on mid laners like Morrigan, simply stick to Divine Ruin if you need antiheal. If you need defense you can opt for Magi's Cloak or Mantle of Discord late in your build, but generally I don't recommend it. If you're building a defense item on Morrigan it's usually 1 item max. Yes you have Changeling, but you still need enough damage in your kit/with your build by lategame to 1 shot / near 1-shot to finish off people with Changeling.

2. Cursed Ankh should be picked up by Solo or/and Support, not the Mid laner, you're not going to safely get the relic proc off without putting yourself out of position. Phantom should only be picked up maybe if your team didn't pick it up against Odin. Thorns should NEVER be built on a Mid laner, you're too squishy to utilise the passive. Your go-to relics should be Purification Beads and Aegis Amulet.

3. You can build Chronos' Pendant on Morri but I don't think it's that worth, maybe early game only (and even then if you get mage's blessing, cdr boots and deso that's 30% CDR). Her ult scales from 140 to 80s at max rank, and her ult will add the transformed god's ult cooldown if you use it, and im pretty sure that cooldown isn't affect by cooldown reduction. I think it's generally better to get Doom Orb early, Morrigan loves the movement speed from it (especially for rotating/ganking other lanes) and the high power on it gives a good early power spike.

Example Morrigan Doom Orb build:

Start: Mage's Blessing, Lost Artifact, 2 Healing Potions, 2 Mana Potions.

Build: Shoes of Focus, Doom Orb, Spear of Desolation (or Divine Ruin), Polynomicon, Charon's Coin (or a 2nd flat pen item, deso/divine, you didn't get earlier), Soul Reaver/ Rod of Tahuti, buy speed elixir and sell boots lategame for situational or a Tahuti/Reaver you didn't get earlier or a Obsidian Shard (if you didn't get Charon's Coin and need the pen).

4. In your combo section you haven't mentioned when to use Changeling how you can use another god's kit to finish off someone you didn't one shot with your combo, or other possible uses of it.

i only put pestilence cause its one the more common anti heal items other than divine ruin - i do agree that you should only need to run divine ruin - i added for extra because i really couldn't think of anything better. i used Charon's coin in my old build as well. i kinda want to try doom orb build. i'm always interested in new ways of building Gods. for the Cursed Anhk thing i know its normal for Solo and support but sometimes i'll use it for an early game advantage if im laneing against someone with some good self heal (not including chalices or pots) i do really like this - thank you for the suggestions!
