Threats to Kindred with this build
|Ashe||You are able to execute your bust easier than her and towerdive when shes low.|
Heyo! This is Adynimis here (Adinymis IGN) and welcome to my first guide!!! I have loved Kindred <3 Since her release. I loved her kit, her lore, and concept. So i played the **** out of her. And eventually i learned her so much i got bored with her. (So sad T_T) So i came back to make a Guide on her. Hope you enjoy it!
(This is in the process of being updated Visually and content wise.)
Flash is a must. As a general rule, every ADC should have it.
Heal: Definitely needed. When preforming those ballsy plays, and you need to win a trade, Heal is your best friend.
Ignite: A subsitute if your support is a healer like Soraka, Sona, or Nami.
Teleport: Another subsitute. If you feel like you have a good matchup and can win your lane, you can take this to be more mobile.
Ghost: Sometimes used instead of Flash because it has a lower CD, you can trade it for Flash, but i dont reccomend it.
Items And Build Order
The Bloodthirster is that it helps to proct a lot of things on Kindred. The bonus attack speed as a first item will make it easier to prot Mounting Dread, Kindred's 'E'. Additionally, because the branches are easier to build, you dont have to worry about being behind if you happend to need to recall. The passive on Blade is very similar to Kindred's own passive, making this a very synergetic item. The active on Blade is also good for up close encounters where you need that extra edge. The fact that you can steal life in the form of an active allows you to increase the amount of initial burst damage.
Boots of Swiftness. Plain and simple. Kindred is all about the hunt, so how can you hunt someone if your not fast enough, added on to the fact that this item gives you attack speed is a must have. You dont have to rush the Alacrity enchantment but if you have spare gold after your 2nd or 3rd full item, buy it.
Kindred's 'Q' Dance of Arrows. Each arrow applies on-hit effects. So if your chasing somone, and all 3 arrows hit the target, thats a lot of crit.
Infinity Edge + Rapid Firecannon already gives you 20%+ CDR. And it restors mana as you crit. Soooo Helpful when you have to spam harrass against lane bullies.
Statikk Shiv, Except that its released charges also damage structures. The reason I use this over Statikk Shiv is that with this build, you already have a **** ton of Crit, so the little passive isnt as Neccissary. This item is helpful in taking down towers, which i would rather have than criting minions.
Kindred, you want a mix of many things. And the whole kit with Blade of the Ruined King is just more synergetinc with Kindred's kit.
Kindred. Its too costly for it to put me ahead. I want Damage, Crit, and Attack Speed + 1 Lifesteal item. Sure it gives me all those minus Lifesteal and plus CDR, but the ideal build will be more synergetic, and this will muddle it up.
The order in which i would Max my skills is Q>E>R>W. When going in, the combo would be Q>E>W>Auto.
The Ferocity tree +
is the clasic ADC Pick. While at the same time,
is also seeing a lot of play on ADCs because of the insane bust damage it gives. This is the part of the guide where i say, its up to you to decide. Both options to the Mastery page are viable. But in my opinion,
is the fun route, wheras
is more appropriate.
The reason i dont like useing Warlord's Bloodlust is that kindred already has a passive heal. Additionally you have health pots, Blade of the Ruined King with its lifestal and active.
Fervor of Battle isn't helpful to you because its generally better on fighters like Jax, Udyr, and Irelia. As for Deathfire Touch , your not making the best use of it because it also scales with your AP. Kindred is only AD, so this would be a waste. But wait, Thunderlord's Decree also scales with AP. So why Thunderlord's? because Thunderlord's has even scaling, can deals the damage in one instace, adding to bigger burst damage and quicker kills.
I choose this set to pit you against the botlane. Lategame you are going to be squishy regardless. Your job is to deal a **** ton of damage and that's it. So I put The armor pen to give you that bit of 'True Damage' and the marks of damage for obvious reasons. The Quints are to help your 'E' and the Armor i split in that way so that you have a decent early game, and lategame in teerms of defense. I wouldnt put health, because you already have a passive heal, and on top of that your are just expected to be squishy. The glyphs could be switched for MR if the enemy team is heavily AP.
Here i will talk about champions that work well with Kindred and why.
Leona: Reason i like Leona with Kindred is that both Champs can initiate a fight in botlane easily. As well as Leona's Stun/Slow in conjunction with Kindreds slow, allows Kindred to successfuly finish her 'E', which is a large portion of the damage you are dealing.
Blitzcrank: This should be a given, but i decided to put him in here. His grab/knockup allows all the room you need to kill. However; Blitz tends to attract a lot of attention botlane soooo, up to you.
Thresh: Historically, grabbers, and pullers have been some of the best supports. Thresh is great with Kindred, because he allows her to towerdive easily, grab/slow enemies, dealsome damage, and use his ult to a great advantage. Flash-ulting as Thresh allows for a surprise the enemy team isnt ready for, and allows you some easy pickings.
As a general rule when asking for a support, but you dont know what they have, you want an aggressive champion with hard CC. This is of course based off of my playstyle, so if this doesnt suit you, change it.
Pros/Cons to This Build/Champion
Synergetic with many items
Counterd by ANY CC
Requires a minigame like
Syergetic with Kindred's character design
Procts well off of her Abilities
lower amount of lifesteal than other builds.
