Introduction: Who am I?!


My Gamertag is LordVissie and I play League Of Legends since the end of Season 3. I'm currently Gold 1 and still climbing. I main Kalista a couple months now. My "Per game Averages" with Kalista is 10,7 K 5,4 D 8,0 A I've had 2 pentakills so far this season with Kalista. Before I mained Kalista I mained champs as Shaco and Zed. I like to main champs who are difficult to play or underrated like Shaco and I think Kalista is underrated too. I also got a YT channel: My Youtube Channel

But now let's start with the Guide!

Farming!


Farming with Kalista is really easy in my opion. Be not afraid to use your E on the minions because if it's kills a unit the Cooldown will reset and half of the mana will be refunded so it'll only cost you 20 mana for maybe 2 minions. It's ok to waste your mana for that. If you are almost half mana then try to stop to use your E on the minions. Use ur Attacks on the minions wisely don't AA minions who are not attacked by your minions because If you are freezing the lane you can **** it up and you miss some CS. 80/90 CS at 10 minutes is pretty good try to get that amout of CS.

Wall Hops!


As Kalista you can jump over some thin walls. Here's a video where you can see all the wallhops. The most wallhops aren't difficult to do. I think the hardest ones are at Blue & Krugs.

How to fight a 1v1!


If you want to 1v1 (for example) a Lucian. You first are going to think about these questions.

  • Are you strong enough to kill him?
  • Where is the jungler/supp or others?
  • What would he do when he sees you?

If everything is correct/good I'd say just give it a try! Try to dodge as many skillshots as possible. You can dodge lucian's Q,W,R try to do that. Also don't forget to use your BOTRK active. It helps you really much.

itemization!


Good Items on Kalista:
Invisible text!
Bloodthirster, On every ADC it's perfect to have. (Must Have!)
Blade of the Ruined King, Nice for 1v1s and AS for your Rend (E) it is not necessary.
Runaan's Hurricane, Amazing with your Rend (E) It'll stack at everyone hit with it's passive.
Last Whisper, Good against tankes, Especially in the tank meta always get it. (Must Have!)
Good if they have a lot of lockdown/CC (Morg Q or vayne stun).
Against Heavy AD champs (Talon, Rengar, Zed)
Against Heavy AP champs (Leblanc, Katarina, or CC like Morg Q)
Gives you a second life and gives you nice armor/MR.

You can also go the standard ADC build as Kalista:

Infinity Edge > Statikk Shiv > Bloodthirster > Last Whisper > Defensive Item

But why don't I build Kalista like that? Because I think the build I prefer is better in the Tank meta & I just think this is way more fun to play. :D
