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.
Hey Guys! its time for my all powerful, completely OP Kennen guide. I am currently KR Masters ELO with over 12k games played on Kennen. I have been often asked to share my secrets, and today i have decided to do so. "Why?" you may ask. Well the asnwer is quite simple. A reliable source has informed me that this years victorious skin will be for Kennen. So buckle up my fellow ninjas and gain dat sweet sweet ELO.
Runes and Masteries
I understand that some lesser champs may have some flexibility when it comes to this, but for Kennen there is only 1 viable option for Runes and Masteries, if you want to carry at least.
These are the runes we will be using:
Marks: 9 magic Pen
Glyphs: 9 flat AP
Seal: 9 flat AP
Quints: 3 flat AP
as for Masteries we will go 12/18/0 taking a keystone in Stormraiders' Surge.
Start lane with a dark seal and pots. Always. We take Ghost and Ignite toplane. this will help you secure those early kills that are essential to this build. Try farming as good as you can whilst repeatedly stomping your enemy toplaner, as no one can stand up to Kennen. If you see them get angry in all chat, try to be calm and helpful. Tell them its not their faul its just their champ that is trash. As kennen has no counters or hard matchups you should aim to be around 5/0 at the seven minute mark. start roaming mid to take a tower there. After that move down and grab the drake, if the enemy team contests this should earn you another 2-3 kills as you slaughter them.
After proceeding as described above, you can start thinking about backing to get some items. depending on how much CS you have you should be able to complete 2 or even 3 complete Mejais Soulstealers, which is good as every further kill will amp your dmg without you having t back. after 3 Mejais I normally rush a deathcap for that bonus AP. at this point you should be 4-5 levels ahead of the enemy team allowing you to 1 sht not only their backline, but their tanks aswell. Use this to your advantage by repeatedly denying vision nd killing the enemy team whilst they come out of their base. Your team should be able to push without too much resistance, so global gold shifts in your favour even more heavily.
What? they havent surrendered yet? your team hasnt managed to finish the game? you are doing omething wrong, as games normally end exactly at the 20 minute mark when following this guide. Either through surrender or naturally. Anyway, if somehow the game isnt finished yet, complete your build by buying more Mejais until you are full build. Boots arent needed. with the movespeed from your ghost and stormraiders surge you should be fast enough to catch anyone running from you. IF they have multiple tanks, then perhaps a void staff is acceptable, so they die as fast as the rest of their team. You should really win eevery game you play unless your team is absolutely uncarriably or picks completely trash champs like Udyr, Volibear or even Nasus.
Kennen is a unique AP carry that scales monstrously well with AP and lets you experience carrying on a whole new level. Now go out there and farm some toplaners!
