Threats to Kindred with this build
|Fiddlesticks||He is so squishy and wolf can still attack him while he is draining you.|
This is my first mobafire guide. I am actually pretty new to Kindred but I have played her so much that I have almost mastered this champion. Using Kindred takes a lot of kiting skill and map awareness to use her effectively. But with time and practice you will learn how to control the jungle and the map.
I am Silver 2 right now but I am looking forward to rising the ranks with Kindred. I just don't play ranked as much and ever since I started playing Kindred I have went on a 6 solo queue win streak. And currently I have a 77.8% Win Rate with Kindred
Please be sure to comment because I want this guide to be the ideal guide for Kindred. Thanks!
Your basic Kindred combo for everything except for clearing jungle camps should be:
Q W E Or Q E W
It depends how far away you are from them and if you need to slow them before you can make sure they are in your W area.
You want to try to have at least 8 stacks or more at 20:00 - 27:00.
Minimum for stacks is 6 stacks by 20:00
Kindreds W Attack speed scales with 50% of Attack Speed*
Devourer Or Warrior Enchant
A big question for the Kindred community is whether you should take Devourer Or Warrior. The truth is that Kindred is an attack speed champion her W attack speed scales with 50% of her attack speed. And once you get sated devourer it is better than warrior anyway. Besides half of playing Kindred is making sure to get monsters and champions. So you might as well take Devourer to get stacks as well.
The only reason people are saying that Warrior is better right now is it is better with Thunderlords early game. As well as CDR.
Creeping / Jungling
As soon as the game starts you should mark the enemy jungler
Start Gromp and after you take wolves begin to go take your mark. Make sure you get full health if it is Scuttle Crab because you will need the health for counter jungling Once you go take your mark you should start to invade their jungler. Make sure to get vision of them and decide if you want to go in usually you should if they don't have full health. In my opinion Kindred is one of the best early game counter junglers because of her percent max health damage if she gets her marks early game.
Get Dragon once you reach level 6 and have a few stacks. Kindred can melt Dragon because of passive and E. You can also get Baron once you hit level 12 with your team you have 10+ stacks.
Be sure to get 6 stacks before Baron has 5 minutes left til respawn because you want to get Rift Herald as soon as possible for those 10 devourer stacks if you can kill him twice (5 stacks each)
Once you counter jungle and get first blood, start to gank. Mid lane is by far the easiest lane to gank because after you kill the enemy jungler, you can go through mid through his jungle and do your Q W E or Q E W combo and you should be able to pick up another kill for your team in the mid lane.
After that you should recall and get your items. Start to clear your camps and then gank more.
Repeat this as much as you can ^
Teamfights and Late Game
For teamfights with Kindred MAKE SURE YOU WAIT FOR YOUR TEAM TO INITIATE and try to get your combo off as fast as possible while you are sticking towards the edge of the teamfight, you never want to be in the center. Keep withering down the enemy team and getting your marks. Late game if you did your job your team should be ahead, including you. So be sure to take dragon whenever you can because as I said in the Creeping / Jungling section. Kindred can MELT Dragon and other Epic monsters. You should be able to take Drag in 5-10 seconds. Fastest I have ever taken Drag was 3 seconds. Hopefully you get what I am trying to say. Get Drag as much as you can.
Continue pushing and taking Drag and Baron with your team until you can win.
If You Are Fed
If you are fed with Kindred early game just keep trying to destroy their Jungler to the point where he is scared to enter his jungle. Do that with other lanes as well. Especially bot lane so your adc can get more CS.
To get a PENTAKILL I must let you know that Kindred is not a 1v5 the enemy team all at once kind of champ. Although she can 1v5 and get a penta. You have to take on one by one everyone on their team. Mostly with my pentas is that it is easier with your team around during a teamfight or if you are in their base taking their towers to get nexus.
End Of The Guide.
