Threats to Kayle with this build

Threat
Low

Show all
Threat Champion Notes
3
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.
3
Yasuo You should have an easy game. His windwall is useless against your E.
3
Fizz Ult the target of his ultimate to block the main source of his damage.
3
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.
3
Veigar Avoid getting stunned, if you're in his cage try to not walk into the wall, instead hit him.

Introduction

Who am I?


Hey guys!
First, I want to say that this is my first guide ever, so please don't be harsh to me c:
I am a Kayle Main who's playing on the European West Server.

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!

Pros and Cons

Pros

+ Strong heal (in late)
+ Speed up
+ Range up
+ Good slow
+ Invincible
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.
Cons

- 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.

Runes vs. AD

Masteries

As Kayle you'll use the Ferocity and Cunning Mastery trees.
space
FEROCITY TREE

Tier 1 - Fury because you want the additional attack speed.

Tier 2 - Fresh Blood This gives you additional damage towards your enemy. I chose this one over the other two, because it gives you the best advantage.

Tier 3 - Natural Talent Now it gives you AP and AD, a dream if you ask me C:

Tier 4 - Double Edged Sword You'll deal 3% more damage but take 1.5% more damage. Fair trade, right?

Tier 5 - NONE

Tier 6 - NONE
space
CUNNING TREE

Tier 1 - Savagery helps you in clearing the waves in the early game.

Tier 2 - Assasin Kayle is a splitpush champion which results you in being alone sometimes. This also means that the enemy will try to stop you by fighting you 1v1. You'll deal 2% more damage to them.

Tier 3 - Merciless You'll hurt them even more.

Tier 4 - Dangerous Game It gives you some sustain during teamfights or splitpushing when killing someone.

Tier 5 - Intelligence A CDR of ~42% is already enough to have your E up before it even runs out. Better grab the 45% because it also decreases your R cooldown. You're also starting with 15% CDR on level 1.

Tier 6 - Stormraider's Surge As mentioned before: Kayle is a splitpusher. If you're fighting someone 1v1 and your enemy is getting away then you can chase him with the 40% Movement Speed boost and you're also having a 75% Slow Resistance/Reduction.

It doesn't matter against which matchup you're with Kayle.
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 you can farm/kill until you got enough for Nashor's Tooth.
After Nashor's it's time for some magic resistance, get Wit's End.
Now you'll finish your Berserker's Greaves.

Your 4th item will be Guinsoo's Rageblade. Which gives you pretty hard power spike.
Get Runaan's Hurricane as next item which will increase your AOE damage by a bit.
Your 5th item is Rylai's Crystal Scepter for the slow.

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 OR if the enemy has more physical damage sources.
- Rabadon's Deathcap : If you don't really have to use your ultimate on your team than you can pick up Deathcap which increases your heal and damage output.

Against AD champions you switch Runaan's Hurricane with Wit's End.
You can leave Wit's End out, if they don't have an AP mid or top laner, and get Void Staff instead.

> > >
You're going to max Righteous Fury first because this is the main source of Kayle's damage output. Your Reckoning is the second choice because it has a fantastic slow which is pretty usefull. as last you'll max Divine Blessing because it takes too much mana in the early. Better have it in the late game.
