Welcome

I'm sure many of you are familiar with the wonder that is Kassadin and how he is a fun character that demands good positioning and insight into how to counter your opponents. Kassadin can be versatile in build in that he can work as an AP Assassin, an AD Assassin, and even tanky. My particular play style with him is an AP build, and it's entirely the way I enjoy playing him.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-Deals great burst damage on relatively low cooldowns
-Great Mobility
-Built in Resistance to magic damage

Cons:
-Can be very squishy
-Positioning and Timing is crucial
-Usually focused with cc

Runes

For runes I go 9 Greater marks of Insight for flat magic pen that helps increase damage output early game, 9 Greater seals of Resilience for the early game armor to help out his laning, 9 Greater glyphs of Warding for early game magic resist to make sure that I have good defenses early game against magic damage alongside his passive, and 3 Greater quintessences of Potency for 15 AP early game for his spells.

Summoner Spells

I like to go Exhaust and Flash on Kassadin to maximize killing potency or defense as well as providing a free escape for early game to escape from ganks or ensuring I don't die early. Other spells that work well for Kassadin are ignite for an extra dot of true damage that lowers healing regeneration and possibly can kill the opponent.

Masteries

I go a 9/0/21 build on him with a point in the improved exhaust and improved flash masteries, making sure I also get the cooldown reduction masteries and lower summoner cooldowns as well.
