Do read and tell me what you think. and do test them out if you can
I tried the build before but my jungler in 3v3 picked YLVA so I ended up with a jungler not dealing damage , they playing wp YLVA and not using her combo , so the guy was typing in the chat to me about the build and how I was dealing zero damage , he thought he was dealing damage while I was the one dealing damage , but from the build it looks like no damage , so I think it’s a good build but not enough to carry a game , like I couldn’t do anything with that YLVA not doing anything , so I guess the burst damage safer for Malene without the stormcrown .
Two crystal bits, then tier 1 boots and banner. I won’t say rushing but I build first. Then save up for
So I’ve played a tonne of Malene.
I’ve found rushing shatterglass for the raw damage has helped me a lot. My games improved when I did.
So 2 Crystal bits, boots, banner then into
Tier 2 boots quite quickly depending on opposition and then defence as appropriate.
I’m really enjoying playing her and was brave enough to play a ranked and win today
I’m saddened that all my matches bar some from months ago will not be available on the API sites as I was looking forward to seeing what opposition I had on casuals and gauging my play.
Anyways many thanks @tadashin as without this guide I probably wouldn’t have bothered and I’m really enjoying playing her
Welcome. Gald you played Malene and hope you will continue to play more as her!
I am starting to use malene as top lane/mid. Sometimes jungler.
That’s not CS, that’s the kill bounty.
Did you have any energy problems or that build was enough to get enough energy ?! , like I’ve seen Malene mains and they say aegis is a most buy to block cc her B not enough ?!
I had plenty of energy. But i don’t really need dark B most of the time unless their team is focusing on me. My main attack is AA and Light A and Dark A. Not much of energy required for them same for swapping. And my AA dark huge poke late game to point where i chain my combo wisely is enough to kill them one shot.
Lol. Already clarified but yeah. Hehe
I will record my gameplay one day and share it.
Malene isnt energy hungry, at least not compared to the other mages, specially considering her A doesnt have energy cost.
It does. 35 energy cost. But still less
They changed It? Originally It didnt cost any energy when overdrived. Does the ult also has energy cost or It has tenido been changed? Anyways, she still doesnt suffer from energy like other mages.
