Prefer the old.

The whole aspect of him being somewhat noble in stance and death incarnate, a general. Seems more interesting then someone hellbent on destroying piddly little mages for one thing or another.

Mordkaiser, the true lord of metal, raises this thread from the grave to serve his unknowable needs.


Thats me voting for his newest lore both the old ones make him some sort of pestilent zombie dude. Overdone say's I. The newest stuff with him being a master of pain is so much cooler. also existing before the dread isles yet still having a connection to it leaves so many interesting places for his lore to go in the future.

Here is the original Mordekaiser lore. Does anyone else beside me like it better than the new version? They completely removed the fact he is/was from the Shadow Isles and that just makes me sad. It was one of his most appealing features.

Also I didn't post the new one because you can just link to it on the site.

Original Mordekaiser lore.

"From the Shadow Isles comes a champion like no other. Standing eight feet tall, concealed within a razor-sharp armored shell is a creature known only as Mordekaiser. Some allege that he is a man, though none have actually seen what lies within the plates that encompass him. There are those who posit that he isn't a living being, but rather a particularly dark specimen of the undead rumored to infest his distant homeland - but such rumors are surely merely the ramblings of the paranoid or the whispers of the insane. What is known is this: Mordekaiser arrived unannounced at the Institute one day and, with the rasp of an echoing sepulcher, requested to join the League of Legends.

As if his fearful visage doesn't disturb enough, his touch bears a sinister plague. Those unfortunate enough to be caught within his grasp fall victim to incurable maladies. In fact, Mordekaiser seems mystically connected to sickness, as if it feeds and comprises part of his chilling essence. He has been seen stalking the slums of Noxus, drawn to the plague-ridden and diseased. However, there is something in his clever tactics, something in his noble stance, something in the tone of his unearthly commands that has led many to believe that Mordekaiser is more than just a foot soldier. Some see the distinguishing characteristics of a general. While many have learned to accept this unsettling possibility, a lingering question keeps them uneasily awake at the witching hour - If Mordekaiser is a general, what nightmarish army lurks at his command?

''If there is a thing festering at the heart of the League, it is the Lord of the ****ed.''

P.S. Apparently Riots forums censors its own stuff haha

I thought it had something to do with how his armor wasn't protecting him but others around him. Oh, well. Still epic.
