Masteries are for building up damage. Kayle's best feature is build up damage. First you gotta attack enemies until you get half health and when they focus you, you gotta pop up ulti and keep attacking.

Kayle is one of the most played champions. So every single player has an opinion about how to build him. My items may seem odd to you guys but try it along with the masteries and runes. You will notice the difference during the game. Always build to counter your opponents you cant buy same items in every game.

If enemy team has 2-3 Tanks buy Lord Dominik's Regards

If enemy team has heavy ap buy Maw of Malmortius

If enemy team builds heavy armor buy The Black Cleaver

If enemy team has many melee champions buy Ravenous Hydra

IF enemy dont have any ignite summoner spells buy Spirit Visage

If you feel like enemy focusing you alot buy Guardian Angel

Be wise and win the game easily. :)

Skill Sequence

Kayle's best feature is build up damage. First you gotta attack enemies until you get half health and when they focus you, you gotta pop up ulti and keep attacking.

Combo Should Be Like:

Q -> E -> aa,aa,aa, -> W -> aa,aa,aa -> R -> aa,aa,aa .... and repeat this until your enemy/enemmies die

Ranked Play

In Ranked gamplay if enemy has 2-3 melee champions that means you are useful in teamfights. So you gotta stack with team. Cause melee means they gotta engage close to each other and you have the biggest aoe build up damage.

If enemy dont have many melee champions and if you dont have any hyper carry adc split push is better with Kayle.

Pros / Cons

I am gonna add a Full Kayle Jungle Gameplay in 3 days. Stay Tuned...

AS: Attack Speed
AD: Attack Damage
AP: Ability Power
MS: Movement Speed
MR: Magic Resist
AR: Armor (Easy one)
aa: Auto Attack
SS: Skillshot
TF: Teamfight
TP: Teleport
CJ: Counter Jungle

This guide is for jungling. First of all you have 2 choice to begin with. Blue side or Red Side. Each side has several benefits so I will try to explain as much as I can.

1- Blue Side Start: Route should be Blue Buff->Gromp->Wolves->Gank mid/top -> If you have enough HP go get red (if your enemy has a jungler who can steal your red)

Benefits: This route is the best route for no aoe or sustain champions. It keeps your hp in a good level so you can go to your red side jungle too.

Down Sides: Only down side is if enemy has a counter jungler they can steal your red buff. Also Red side gives more experience but nowadays it is hard to start from red side.

2- Red Side Start: I personally don't try to start from red side no matter what.
Route: Red Buff->Krugs->Birds->Crab->Gank mid or bot, If you have enough Hp go ahead and clear Blue side too since it is way easier than red side.

Benefits: With this route you get by far the best experience. You can even be lvl 3 in 3-4 mins. Great route for 3 lvl gankers like Shaco,Xin Zhao, Lee Sin etc.

Down Sides: This route have many mob spawns and if you dont have any aoe skills it is really hard to do it. It is time consuming but great on gaining exp.

How to be a Better Jungler:

As a jungler your most important job is being awere of map! Means you gotta keep track of enemy cooldowns (flash/ulti/TP) You gotta know when Dragon/Baron Spawns ( Easy with new patch you always see the cooldown but you gotta remind your teammates when Dragon or Baron will spawn cause they are busy with dealing farming/enemy harrass/ jungler ganks)

Always ping as soon as you decided to gank a lane. If you pinged a lane to gank dont try to abandon it unless you see a good opportunitiy.

Always buy pink ward and place it between top and mid. (yes that is your job!) So your top and mid laner might save themselves from 1-2 enemy jungler ganks which is good for you. Enemy jungler will lose time and buy sweeper (if you want to Counter Jungle) Always try to smite Birds for the vision buff and clear the wards around the map

Always choose a jungle path which gives you gank opportunities faster. For example: If you feel like enemy top laner will push ( Riven, Irelia, Vlad always pushes lanes :) ) then start with wolves go for gromp then take blue and you can good to gank top lane when it is pushed. But if you start gromp then go blue then you try to kill wolves you lose time to walk back to top lane.

Be efficient with you time. Do not waste time walking mid lane if your mid lane is pushed. Go farm mobs when all lanes are pushed. Also ganking top lane is always tricky after lvl 6 , DO not camp top unless you see neemy jungler close to their top lane, cause if you camp top enemy jungler can easily take drag.

Try to help lanes that has disadvantage in lane (Irelia vs Ryze/Vlad) ranged vs melee match ups are tough. So help your poor Irelia :) Dont forget that your team as strong as your weakest lane.
