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.

READ FIRST

This build is purely experimental, I have never actually tried this build. I am seeking the opinion of the community and asking if this build could be viable so I can test it is a game.

The idea for this build came to me from looking at other Kennen builds and Jax builds. It is to try and utilize Kennen's auto-attack while his abilities are on cooldown after a full combo.

I am not going to go into any detail on Kennen nor is this a complete guide. I will however explain build choices.

Runes & Masteries

I have listed pretty standard runes for Kennen. AP quints, magic penetration marks, health per level seals and AP per level glyphs.

For masteries I have listed a 21/0/9 setup investing in AP offense and avoiding mana in the utility tree.

Items

In this build I choose to start with a Doran's Shield for the increased lane sustainability. This item should give you enough sustain to be able to afford at least Boots of Speed and Blasting Wand on your first trip back. Why not rush malady? Because you really need the extra ability power from Blasting Wand to give your abilities more oomph.

The next items you should get are Sorcerer's Shoes for the magic penetration and Malady. This item gives you more Electrical Surge passive procs and enables you to shred your enemies magic resist. It is important that you get Malady before Guinsoo's Rageblade because you need the extra attack speed to get stacks on Guinsoo's Rageblade.

Your next item is, you guessed it, Guinsoo's Rageblade. This will allow your auto-attacks to hurt, increase the damage from your Electrical Surge passive, plus give a lot more ability power.

Next up is Rabadon's Deathcap. Once you get this your AP will skyrocket, allowing you to kill them harder.

Now that you've got substantial AP, you can make your auto-attacks deal 500 damage with Lich Bane. You should auto-attack once after each ability use to maximize the effectiveness of this item.

For your last item you can take either Void Staff or ryali's crystal scepter. The former will make your abilities damage like they didn't have magic resist at all, while the latter will give you a slow and more health.
