Threats to Kayle with this build
|Zed||If played right, zed should be one of the easiest match-ups for you. Get zhonya's and you can shut down his ult damage with your ult and zhonya's. it also allows your laner to get hyper-aggresive against him if he ults.|
Hi, my summoner name is Doubleshotted and this is the build for my favorite off-meta jungler. Kayle has very good jungle clear with her W and proper rotation. She can gank very well with with the double slow and high attack speed. Even though the jungle reset patch hurt her, I feel that Kayle can still be a high-tier jungler.
Q- Your Q is a lock-on stun and a heavy damage dealing ability. This ability scales in both AD and AP so it benefits from every damage item in the build. Using your Q and stalkers creates a situation where the enemy being ganked will always be slowed
W- Your W is a movement speed steroid and a heal. This ability scales in only AP. using this while using your Q and stalker's gives you a really good chase.
E- Your E is your range-increasing damage steroid. An AOE damage circle will spread out from the target hit, making this ability great for jungle. It scales in AP, but your AD still applies to it.
R- Your ult is a shield that makes you invincible to all damage for a short duration, does not affect CC. It has no scaling other than a longer duration at leveling up.
I run these runes because the AD helps more early than magic pen reds. Attack speed quints to do more DPS, plus it works well with the build. I have the four Attack speed blues to get my attack speed boost up to 16% of the start.
The items in my build look really weird but they all work. The Essence Reaver give the basic attacks more sting and her Q has AD scaling as well. the zephyr gives a lot of bonuses that Kayle really benefits from. the movement speed gives you over 500 when W is active and the attack speed gives you close to 2 attacks/second. The hybrid AD-AP makes her harder to counter because of the basic attacks doinbg both AD and AP.
I start my W for the level one heal so that I can clear blue easier. then level 2 is the E for the bonus damage and the slight kiting that you can do. Q last and then go to maxing R-E-Q-W in that order.
To start the game, you should start gromp, then go to blue. you should have pretty low health after that, so go clear scuttle while spamming your heal to get higher health. then go and clear both sides of jg. try to get 6 before ganking, but her pre-6 ganks are pretty good too.

Thanks for reading my guide! I hope this helps you break the amazingly diverse meta of J4, lee sin, and Vi with the one of the most versatile champs in League.
