Morgana Soul Shackles "R" info and tips?

#1metallicabandPosted 2/7/2013 3:24:08 AM
Hello all,

I'm still a pretty new LoL player and RTS player in general, been using Katarina & Ashe for the most part but I recently picked up Morgana since I really liked her skill set and she looks pretty cool.

Getting my ass handed to me so far lol, mostly play her in mid, but sometimes douchebags want mid or threat to feed, so what should I do then, go top or bot?

Anyway, I'd really appreciate it if someone can clear a few things for me about Morgana's ultimate:

1- Do I have to hold the "R" button after starting it or not?
2- Once activated, can I use her other skills like her Q, Ignite or Auto attack?
3- Would activating Zhonya's Hourglass during the ultimate animation cancel it?

Any other tips about using the ultimate or general Morgana tips would be really appreciated, I already know that it's a good idea to put up her shield before starting the ultimate.

you can use other abilities while using it, you don't have to hold R, and Zhonya's is pretty standard on her. It is usually her first major item or second major item, unless she absolutely needs something else.

1) No, you just have to remain in range of the target for the second portion (the stun) to activate.
2) Yes, you definitely can.
3) No, and that's definitely one of Morg's strong points, being able to like flash into a team, use ult, and then use Zhonya's.

Thanks for replying guys.

About cancelling out the ultimate, other than killing Morgana or running out of the ultimate field, are there any other way they can interrupt it? Such as stuns, snares..etc

I swear sometimes I pull off the ultra and stay within range the entire time but the enemy champions still don't get stunned, am I cancelling it myself somehow or some champions are immune to it or something?

As for creating custom games, can I start a game with level 6 already up and add custom equipment? It's pretty time consuming to farm until I get an expensive item like the hourglass just to see how it's going to function.

Pretty sure you can't cancel it yourself minus moving out of range of the target. I think the stun can only be negated/avoided if someone moves out of range, or they have something that makes them immune to crowd control (Such as Morgana's Black Shield ability).

No, you cannot create a custom where you start at a higher level or with certain equipment.

Well for custom games unfortunetely you can't add items or do any other godly things (unlike a certain other game) so you are stuck farming, but at least you can add one bot to kill over and over again in order to speed things up.

These.

I might add that Morgana is effective both as AP mid or Support bot lane. Try getting first a partner who can give you an idea in-game on how Morgana synergize with her teammates, especially if you decided to play her as support.

If you want to fully comprehend her gameplay, I suggest you look for guides of her on SoloMid.net

Thanks again for the replies.

It's a shame you can't create an entirely custom match that you can adjust your character's level and equipments, obviously such mode won't give you any EXP/IP, I'm a SF4 player who's pretty much a training mode whore lol so I would have loved such option to test out things myself.

Just to verify, what kind of effects will cancel out my ultimate? e.g with Katarina CC negates her ultimate, will stun, snare, slow or anything like that cancel out my ultimate?

Nope. Katarina's ultimate is channeled, whereas Morg's is cast instantly and nothing will interrupt its effect short of dying. Or the enemy moving out of range as already covered.
