Introduction

This is my first ever build of MobaFire.
Okay, let me get this straight - YES. AD KASSADIN. IT EXISTS. IT IS NOT DEAD AND DESTROYED BY AP KASSADIN. Ehem. I am sorry for that.
So, really, i met a lot of people who start going "AP Gangplank", "AP Mundo", "AP Garen", "AD Soraka" after hearing "AD Kassadin".
And i don't get it - I mean, what's so strange about going AD with Kassadin?

He has awesome Armor Penetration, nice mana regen with attacks, teleport, slow, silence - he makes an EXCELLENT anti-caster DPS champion!


With Frozen Mallet almost no one can escape the Vengeance of the Void - you just attack, slow, jump - wash off and repeat until the result is ok.
won't stop repeating - I LOVE AD Kassadin. I prefer it. I will only play Kassadin this way. And I

Pros / Cons

Pros:
- Awesome chaser\ fleer
- Good damage late game
- Mana regen with attacks - 20 per an attack
- Element of Amusement (works with allies as well, lolZ)
Cons:
- VERY SQUISHY
- Must have a REALLY nice early game
- Melts when focused
- Bad damage early game
- Always hearing jokes about AP Mundo is not fun.

Runes

There are 2 current rune build i found:
First one:
- 9 Armor Penetration Marks
- 9 Flat Armor Seals
- 9 Flat Magic Resist Glyphs
- 3 Armor Penetration Quintessence
Second one:
- 9 Armor Penetration Marks
- 9 Flat Armor Seals
- 9 Flat Magic Resist Glyphs
- 3 Health Quintessence
They are not really different: the first is more Damage-based, and the second is Survival-based.
I recommend Survival-based first, so you can get used to AD Kassadin. Then take Damage-based and be happy :)

Masteries

There isn't much to talk about Masteries:
8-21-1 is Survival (prefer this one)
21-0-9 is DPS (remember to get Sorcery, Archaic Knowledge, Alacrity and Sunder)
Try them both and see, which is better for you.

Items

Again, the only problem AD Kassadin has - Health.
It's too low to keep damaging the enemy without dying every 2 seconds!
How do you solve it?

Frozen Mallet!

Yeah, we're advertising here!
It gives you the Health you need, adds a little, but nice amount of damage, and a slow - now nothing and no one can run away from us!


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Ghost

is for running\chasing

Cleanse

is for those situations, when you got a lot of CC on yourself and became low on health.

Alternatives:

Teleport


Ignite


Exhaust

Summary

In the end of all i want to say - first try, then comment and vote!
