Maokai is a Tank in Wild Rift has a lot of CC, Maokai’s ultimate can set up skirmishes from long distances, and Sapling Toss provides vision.

When reaching level 5, Maokai gains a sudden power boost with ability AOE CC, which is very effective in team fights.

Learn from previous matches. I am confident that I will win against Maokai if I meet him again in an upcoming match. Some ways to counter Maokai Wild Rift below will help you easily defeat Maokai if you meet him.
