Introduction

Hello and welcome to Kayle Badger: a Kayle build guide of a different color!
I'm Gramps Tewks.


Please lend an ear to YOkolnov's touching love song, Lonely Angel:

Andvir is responsible for The Black Cleaver bada$$ery.
As always, kudos to the incomparable JhoiJhoi for the template, which you can find here!

This guide will make you into a LIVING WEAPON that NO ONE will see coming.

Onward, then!

Swiftness is terrific. The interaction between Reckoning and Executioner lets you deal 16% more Damage to targets under 40% Health. Woooooow :D

Summoner Spells


Flash: Excellent maneuverability!
Pop Divine Blessing + Flash to bid your foes a fond farewell ;)
space
Teleport: Kayle is well-suited to the utility of Teleport. It's great for backdooring later as well!

Skill Discussion


  • Holy Fervor: Many people cry that this skill is underpowered! They lack creativity.
    Only Rammus players with 300 Armor will be resisting you, and Holy Fervor refuses them 45 of that.

  • Reckoning (Q): Decent nuke as well as a CRAZY SLOW.
    As if that weren't enough, Reckoning increases the % damage that Kayle deals to the target... all of which is DISTURBINGLY good.

  • Divine Blessing (W): People cry that this skill is underpowered! They lack creativity.
    You're not Soraka, for Pete's sake!
    I frequently save lives and win fights with the Speed boost and/or heal from Divine Blessing. If you can't, then UNINSTALL plz~ cuz I'm terrible.

  • Righteous Fury (E): A free, ranged, splashing B. F. Sword? WAT?!? I'll take it.
    Life is a piece of cake with Righteous Fury.
    Take down minion waves and champions like you're being PAID FOR IT!

  • Intervention (R): The NO DIE Button.

Max Righteous Fury immediately, because free B. F. Swords are profitable.
Reckoning gets the nod next for le combat dominance and Divine Blessing comes in a respectable 3rd.
As always, level your ultimate at 6, 11, and 16.

Items

  • : A fantastic choice when facing AD bruisers!

  • + : These two items are your foundation.

  • : Heckuva beating for your enemies! Brutal.

  • : Altogether awesome.

  • : Extra oomph and resistance!


    Finally, replace Doran's Shield with a beefy Health-based item.

Gameplay

Early-Game

This build treats Kayle like a bruiser rather than a caster of sorts.
Only use your skills when combat gets up-close and personal!

READ THIS: Let the minions fall back to just outside your turret's range before using Righteous Fury! This allows you to farm excessively without risk and leaves your opponent vulnerable to ganks.

Mid-Game

Once you purchase The Black Cleaver, you're a MONSTER.
Use Intervention as often as possible, push turrets LIKE MAD and WIN TEAM FIGHTS.

Late-Game

With Trinity Force, you're a DEMON.
Go ahead and WIN THE GAME with your teammates.

Summary

You are KAYLE BADGER. You are Xin Zhao with a range of 525. You deal splash damage because you WANT TO. You decide who speeds up and who slows down. You decide who lives and who dies.

If you're tired of the SAME OLD ****P, slap down a mere 450 IP for the HIGH QUEEN of DEATH.
No one calls you OP because they fear their own destruction, and rightly so.


Now get out there and CRACK SOME JAWS!
