With the release of the final Patch for this year, 2.6, two rival sisters make their debut on the Wild Rift. Unlike her sister, Morgana the Fallen rejects unjust laws and traditions and fights for her own understanding of the real truth. To help her with that mission Morgana is equipped with shields and chains of dark fire. In this guide, we will take a closer look at the best runes, spells, and builds, including tips and tricks to bind your way to victory with Morgana in League of Legends: Wild Rift.
Morgana is a Mage that can be played in the Mid Lane and as a support in the Dragon Lane. The reason why she can be played as a support as well is Morgana´s whole kit which is all about keeping the enemies rooted in one place forever. This makes her overall a solid A-tier champion and S-tier against an All-engage type of team composition.

Morgana is a champion with the common five skill sets of one passive and four actives. In this Morgana guide, we are going to see how her abilities in LoL Wild Rift work and when you should use which skill to be in the best shape in the current rank season.
Passive – Soul Siphon
Morgana heals for 20% of the damage dealt with abilities against champions, large minions, and large monsters.
Ability 1 – Dark Binding
Fires a bolt of dark energy, rooting the first enemy hit for 2 seconds and dealing 80 magic damage (+ 90% AP)
Ability 2 – Tormented Shadow
Curses an area for 5 seconds, dealing 8 magic damage (+ 7%) every 0.5 seconds to enemies within, increased by up to 170% based on their missing health. Tormented Soil deals 150% damage against monsters. Tormented Shadow´s current cooldown is reduced by 5% of its maximum whenever Soul Siphon triggers.
Ability 3 – Black Shield
Places a barrier around an allied champion for 5 seconds, absorbing 80 magic damage (+ 70%) and blocking disables while the shield holds.
Ability 4 – Soul Shackles
Chains nearby enemy champions, dealing magic damage equal to 14% (+ 0.02%) of their maximum health. The chains persist for 3 seconds, revealing and slowing by 15% Movement Speed. When the duration ends, chained targets are stunned for 1.5 seconds and dealt magic damage equal to 14% (+0.02%) of their maximum health.
Skill Up Methods for Morgana
Skill up the Ultimate whenever it is available. Regarding other skills, upgrade the 1st skill, then the 2nd skill, and lastly the 3rd skill.
Best Runes Setup and Spells for Morgana in Wild Rift
- Electrocute: This rune is the standard rune for all mages who deal adaptive damage. Additionally, it will give Morgana´s combo attack with her root and the AoE damage bonus damage.
- Brutal: If you are playing for an early game match you should pick up the Brutal rune instead of Gathering Storm. Both runes give you additional adaptive damage both for the early phase of the game Brutal has more value.
- Bone Plating: Like the rune before you should pick up any rune from this section depending on your matchup. If you are facing a heavy engaged team composition Bone Plating will shield you against their burst damage. If the enemy relies on poke damage picking up Second Wind is wiser.
- Manaflow Band: Since Morgana is a champion who is bound to a mana bar taking the extra mana is helpful throughout the game.
Like other mages, Morgana is very immobile and can get easily be caught. Her first and ultimate ability both are good disengage abilities but if they are at cooldown or if the enemy itemizes well it will not guarantee you to be safe. That is why Flash is a must for this champion.
Either Ignite or Heal/Exhaust
This depends on where you play Morgana and which enemy you face. Usually in the Mid Lane, you would want to take Ignite to secure kills. In Dragon Lane, it depends on the enemy support you are facing. If it is a sustain type of support takes to heal to match their sustain. Will the enemy support take an engage/tank type you are more likely to take exhaust with you.

League of Legends: Wild Rift Morgana Gameplay Tips
As we figured out Morgana is a Mage suited to being played in the Mid or Dragon Lane. Always remember that the Wild Rift’s Map is a mirror so make sure you understand the map side before starting to lane. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift Morgana guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
If you play Morgana in the Mid Lane you should focus on farming while pressuring your opponent so he will not roam. If it’s Morgana Support, you should try to prevent the enemy ADC from farming and pressure the enemy support. Try to catch the enemy ADC with your Dark Binding to follow up with your Tormented Shadow ability to maximize your damage output. If you have an ADC with a trapping ability this combo usually secures a kill.
Before the first dragon always pushes your mid-wave into the enemy tower to build up pressure. As support try toward the Dragon´s pit in time so you will know if the enemy team starts the dragon. Other than that try to take out the enemy´s vision with your sweeper. In team fights you have to stand behind the front line because Morgana is quite squishy. Nevertheless, try to bind the enemy ADC and use your combo to poke other squishy enemy´s
The Late Game is where you have built enough Adaptive Damage or utility to max out your full potential as Morgana. Using your Ultimate is a good engagement for your team to have an upper hand in teamfights. Always use your 3rd Skill and maybe a stasis enchants to guarantee your survival since Morgana has to get into the enemy´s team to catch them all. You might want to try specific skill combos like this to unleash her full potential.
Ultimate + Skill 3 + Basic + Skill 2 + Skill 1

Morgana is a very strong addition to the game and a good answer to heavy engage/cc team compositions. Her first ability is a root with a very long duration while her second one is an AoE spell that inflicts damage over time. She has an ultimate rooting of every enemy in her area and a spell shield giving immunity against crowd control. The last ability is what makes Morgana a perfect counter pick against enemies with strong engage and crowd control. It also brings some variety into either the Dragon or the Mid Lane.
