Threats to Kayle with this build
|Twisted Fate||Easy match up, dodge his Q's and keep an eye on the card he's picking. Yellow usually means that he's receiving a gank.|
|Yasuo||You should have an easy game. His windwall is useless against your E.|
|Fizz||Ult the target of his ultimate to block the main source of his damage.|
|Zed||It's an easy match up. Pre-6 you've to dodge his Q's and after you both reached lvl6 wait a little moment after he ulted someone. Use your ult to block his damage. Don't use it imidiently 'cause it wont block the damage then.|
|Veigar||Avoid getting stunned, if you're in his cage try to not walk into the wall, instead hit him.|

Sometimes I'm streaming on the Twitch Channel SenJu. If you want pass by and leave a follow c:
What is this guide for?
This guide is, as you can see, for the champion Kayle in the Mid Lane of the Summoner's Rift. I've created this guide out of my masteries, runes and my build.
It works pretty good in my games and that's why I wrote this guide. I want to share it.
Why do you like this champion?
I discovered that she's strong in a 3v3 match back in about the middle of Season 4.
So I tried her in 3v3 first and brought her later into the Rift where I was successful.
I like this champion because (to be honest) she doesn't really get any nerfs and in rankeds the pick and ban rate is low, so she's never banned.
It's possible to perform an animation cancel on Kayle. Check the Skill Explanation for more!
Don't trust me?
Don't you trust me?
Well, here are my latest Kayle games in which I've used the AoE damage build.
Pros and Cons
|+ Strong heal (in late)
+ Speed up
+ Range up
+ Good slow
|Kayle has (in my opinion) a strong late game heal. Chasing and running away is easier with her, because her W will speed you up. Her E gives you additional range, which gives you AoE damage and additional magical damage with your auto attacks. Her Q works fantastic in chasings. If it comes to an ugly situation, just use your ultimate on your AD Carry or yourself to get more time to fight.|
|- Can't do much without E
- Gank can easily shut her down
- High cooldown on W
- Q and W need a lot of mana
- Lane is always pushed
|Where pro is, are cons too. Even Kayle has some and here they're: Kayle's main damage comes with her E, so always be prepared that it runs out. You can easily get killed if the jungler or toplaner camps in a brush in the early. Her W has a high cooldown - with 30% CDR (and maxed) it still has a cooldown of 10.5 seconds. Q and W need lots of mana - that's the reason why you want to build Lich Bane, just to avoid getting oom. In the early you can avoid using these spells too much.|
Keep sure that you're starting with Nashor's Tooth - if you're asking now, with which part you should start, then I can give you an easy answer. It's Stinger.
You should get Stinger with your first shop visit combined with boots.
Now it's already time for something special, get the Guinsoo's Rageblade.
This will give you an extreme power spike in the early.
After that, you can farm/kill until you got enough for Nashor's Tooth.
Now you'll finish your Berserker's Greaves.
Your 5th item will be Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
You'll need the additional life, AP and the slow.
Get Giant's Belt as first item and go then for AP parts.
The slow is really strong on Kayle and you'll need it to take kills in the later game.
Also it assists your team.
Now, finally the 6th item.
You've to decide if you're going to get Zhonya's Hourglass or Rabadon's Deathcap.
- Zhonya's Hourglass : Buy this item, if you've to use your ultimate to save others in your team.
- Rabadon's Deathcap : If you don't really have to use your ultimate on team mates. You'll be thankful for the extra damage you'll get.
- Berserker's Greaves - Furor : This will be your new enchantment since you'll get Homeguard after reaching the 20th minute.
At all this build is set up for burst damage.
Skill Sequence Order
Table of Content - AoE Damage[/b}
This chapter is about the AoE Damage build.
It uses the SAME runes, masteries and skill sequence.
Only the item build is different.
I recommend using this build!
Finish your Nashor's Tooth and Berserker's Greaves and continue with your next item.
Now enhance your build with the rage of Guinsoo ( Guinsoo's Rageblade).
Start building the Blasting Wand or the Recurve Bow - This depends on the choice if you need more AP or AS. Your choice will usually fall on Blasting Wand.
Finish your Guinsoo's Rageblade and move on to your next item.
The next item is Runaan's Hurricane.
Start with the Recurve Bow and later on when you've enough money, just finish it.
Your last item in this build is Rabadon's Deathcap which you can build earlier. Focus on getting enough gold for a Needlessly Large Rod and farm the missing gold up. Then simply go back and finish the item.
