introduction

GUIDE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION



Hi everybody, this is my guide on one of my favorite champions Kennen.I worked really hard to make this guide the best it could be and I would enjoy some feedback to make it better. Kennen is an excellent champion with his passive Mark of the Storm, stunning and contributing to team fights. Please reconsider disliking, and thank you for taking time to read my guide. Without farther ado my Kennen guide.

Summoner Spells


Flash: This is the most op thing in the game. This spell is a get of jail free card, and is great on any champion.

SUMMONER SPELL: Ahh… this summoner spell got me plenty of first bloods with Kennen.

Barrier: This can save your life a lot so if you feel you don't want ignite defiantly get barrier.
  • Other viable choices are Teleport and Cleanse these are just dependent on who you are facing.

Ability explanation




: Unlike most champions Kennen's passive is his bread and butter. This stuns the enemy when three marks of the storm are applied. These marks are added by abilities.

: This is a skill shoot and does magic damage to enemies, also it adds a Mark of the Storm, it has a 75% ability power addition making it one of Kennen's strongest ability.
Tips and Tricks
  • Kennen should never face check a bush use thundering shrunken to check for enemies.
  • Farm with this ability it has short CD and Kennen has energy so spam it!!!
  • Keep in mind that this skill shoot is faster than most skill shoots, so practice in a custom match before just hopping in a ranked.

: Passive: Every 5th attack it does additional AD also adds a Mark of the Storm. Active: Shocks all enemies with a Mark of the Storm in an AOE, also applies a Mark of the Storm.
Tips and tricks
  • In early levels the 5th attack does massive amounts of damage.
  • Auto attacks are faster with passive of Electrical Surge.
  • When 5th proc is active try to use it on enemy champion ,but keep in mind to try not to miss cs.
  • If you have a Mark of the Storm on a stealth champion use this ability to find where the stealth champion is.
: This changes you into an orb of lighting raise your movement speed and on hit magic damage also applies a Mark of the Storm.
Tips and tricks
  • Try not to use this ability as an offensive weapon since this your only natural escape.
  • Use this to dodge skills.
  • This adds additional armor and magic resist so even if you can't dodge you can still take less damage from abilities
  • Remember using abilities will not cancel Lightning Rush but pressing "e" again cancels the ability.

: An AOE that applies Mark of the Storm randomly adds Mark of the Storm and does magic damage to enemies.

This sequence is used when going mid. I find maxing Thundering Shuriken first is the way to go in mid lane.

When going top it is easier and more effective to max Electrical Surge instead of Thundering Shuriken, also if you are not good at skill shoots this would be a safe way to sequence your abilities.
