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.
Hi there , my name is PlacinTeL and i'm curently Silver I in EUNE . I can't say that i main Kennen but he quickly made it into my heart a short time after i bought him . I used to play him mid (as most of the people do) but recently i tried him top and it worked amazing . In the next build you'll discover my way of building Kennen and tips .
Pros / Cons
-Good gap closer/escape tool
-Can turn around games
-If you get shuted down early , you're pretty much behind all game
-Focused a lot in teamfight
-Your ulti can be denied by a lot of champs (unless you have hourglass)
Ignite - You usually want to have this on Kennen so you can just ignite your enemy and then walk away like a baws ^^ .
Flash - This is pretty much what you need to take every game . This is an awesome escape tool but it can be used to land a key Thundering Shuriken .
Ghost - Ghost is pretty useless on this guy because of your Lightning Rush . No more to say about this one
Heal - Ignite > Heal
You HAVE TO GET ALL THE MINIONS . Ok , i can't stress this enough , you just have to kill all of them . Practice your last hit a lot . That's the main reason i buy 2 Doran's Blade as it gives me the so needed ad for nice and easy last hits .
By the 20 min mark you want to have around 150 creeps , that's like ideal .
With Kennen you want to play a bit more aggresive than your average top laner . You're a ranged champ . Ranged > Melee . YOU HAVE TO ABUSE THAT . You just have to poke them and they'll Q_Q in front of you . When they try to engage on you , just Lightning Rush away .
So , by now you should have your Zhonya's Hourglass if everything went well . Your job is to get as deep as you can (that's what she said) in their team and just press 'R' . If your team isn't full of monkeys that just discovered the computer then it's like impossible to lose a teamfight with Kennen's ultimate
I heard a lot of people saying that Kennen is weak in late game . I have to say NO to that because of his utility . Your ultimate just tears down the whole team and i'm not even including the stuns that can land on everyone from their team .
Kennen works well with almost all the champions but i found some that he works the best with .
Orianna works very well with Kennen because of their ultimates . Comebined you can demolished a whole team in just 2 seconds .
Jarvan IV works good with Kennen as well . The only downside of this is that if you don't get caught in Cataclysm you have to use flash to get in it .
Thresh is like one of my favorite support to have on one team . He can Death Sentence into them , The Box them and then just throw Dark Passage at you and voilà , you're inside a 5 men team .
