I have come to the conclusion that MAOKAI needs a buff

I have played maokai a lot lately and have made polls with majority voting unbalanced and i think he does need some buffs. His damage is far too low and i hate the fact that his ult is capped, sometimes i begin to run away from my enemy thinking my last atk will do the job aha, any thoughts?

well...i've been having a good time with maokai, just build him as a tank, few ap items here and there that can also help your tank build, but i've sat there tanking the entire enemy team for 15 seconds under the ultimate while my teamates run in and start killing.

Normaly i start off with doran's ring for the hp and mp/s, mercury trends, rylai's crystal scepter, zhyonya's hourglass, frozen heart, force of nature, warmonger's armor(sell doran's ring when you go for this)

This is my ideal setup but usualy games are decided before that, I like zhoynya's since you can use twisted advance strait into the enemy group then use zhoynya's to make them waste alot of thier initial attacks, as soon as you break from it use your ulti ontop of you and start spamming skills.

The biggest problem I have with Maokai is his lacking in the spammable department. He's good but he's not "that" good.
