Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is an incredible build, with a ridiculous amount of cohesion between runes, masteries, items and playstyle. It is also not too expensive which has always been a weakness for traditional Kennen builds. Kennens mid game is already very strong, so when you can rush through that solari so your whole team can tower dive along with your ult it just destroys enemy moral. I have played Kennen for over a year and this way, thanks to the new patch, is by far my favourite.
I hope you try it and love it too!
This is where things are most fun for you. It is rare that the game lasts too long due to the strength of this build, but if it does, you can build a WOTA so you can be EVEN MORE audacious, and keep your hp high enough so you never have to back down in long team fights. After that, if you get to this point, you can finnaly cash in your Pick for a Morellonomicon, and enjoy 36% cooldown, which means your ghost escape is on a 3 or 4 second timer, and you can split push better than anyone in the game due to how much map coverage you have.
With your Solari and Lianry's, you will be leading the rush with your team, popping your Barrier summoner spell for yourself, and the Solari for your whole team who will naturally be with you to profit from your ulti. You can get your full combo off, while turret diving, and then chase up any running survivors.. The solari is SO good on Kennen, it is a game changer as soon as it comes out. Amumu tries to ult on your ult? Just Solari your team and continue destroying the enemy. Often the game will be over soon if you are playing correctly.
Get a Zhonyas and troll even harder. with your barrier, Solari, and Zhonyas, you are unkillable, but can destroy any carry in the game with your own AP. This is where you can start to have fun. Start diving on full hp Ashes who are sitting under their turret with 4 others, kill her and still survive. The enemy is in tatters by this point as they likely have lost all the team fights and are considering surrender.
For this build i have had alot of success going B very early in the game, in the region of 450 gold to get that kages pick and 3 or 4 health potions.
Before you head back, you can work the enemy down a bit, knowing your health will be regenerated at base and you will be buying potions to give you the sustain needed to farm solidly for the next 5-10 mins. You can spam your E to get back in lane quickly. Often at this time you can get your first kill, due to the harass you did before you went back, and the AP/regen advantage.
You should now farm hard for your Liandrys, and soon after be buying an Iron Solari.
