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.
Today I will show you my way of Kassadin.
He is a good counter vs many champions.
with Kassadin you are able to beat strong champions like :
HE IS THE ANTI MAGE
Now i show you how you, how to build your Kassadin a good way
KASSADIN IS ONE OF THE POWERFULLST CHAMPIONS IN LEAGUE OF LEGENDS and also he is a great counter for many strong AP Nuker !! But he can Nuke aswell.
Pros / Cons about Kassadin
Very powerfull mid and late game
Deals tons of damage
Teleports if he want to
One of the best escaper
Great mid champion
Good for ranked games
Intresing to play
THE ANTI MAGE
You can pick him IN EVERY MODE : 3on3 5on5 AND Dominion ... he is never a wasted pick
Seems a bit weak early game
Hard to master him
Will be focused in team fights ^^
NO Pokemon skin ;(
For marks I prefer magic penetration marks 0.95 * 9 makes you braking throw magic resist like God ^^
You can take ability power,too but I prefer Magic pen. > Ablity Power
For Glyphs I prefer ability power, because they impact most 0.99 ablity power is very much
and there is no reason to test some thing else then abliity power runes :D
And for the big runes i realy would recommend 4.95 ablity power but you can take Magic Penetration aswell
For seals i prefer mana regen( because you get fast out of mana without archangel's or Rod of Ages)
you can also take pure ability power as well.
The Masteries on the red tree on 3/4 // 4/4 right is escpacilly for ap champs very good
and for Kassadin mana regenation per 5s --> on the green tree is very n1 so take it
And one VERY Important thing is that you take " Runic affinety " ... so you can hold your blue buff longer ^^ )
Items (BIG UPDATE )
There existing many differnt ITEM builds for Kassadin ....
This is my favourite ONE
(( Magic penetration boots --> MUST HAVE ))
(( Life+Mana+AP This item gives you all you need AND a great passiv !! ))
(( So much AP Cause it ;D )
(( Void Staff is a very good item espacally cause the magic penetration ))
RECMMENDED Optional Items
(( Mana+Life+MAGIC RESIST and a Amazing Passiv )) (against mages)
(( AP+Magic resist+Magic pen ( passiv ) )) (against mages)
(( Ablity power + Armor and a great passiv this item will save your *** )) (against NoMages)
(( Mana+ Armor AMAZING CD )) (against NoMages)
THIS ARE THE 4 Items you have the choice between. Take 2 off them, which are best against your enemys !!
This Item is very USEFULL not only for Kassadin but if comination with Kassadin - the JUMPER
you are able to get away Very simple
This Item can protect you against cc hurry use it !!
I wouldn't buy this Item cause maybe you had a good start 20 stacks on it tons on tons of ablity power but now the TF phase starts and you get focused hard by let's say High elo Nocturne and your power fall , fall , fall.
I never would buy an Item depends how good you at the moment all can change very fast
And anyway don't anybody try to fcous the nuker so if you bought this and you later get focused the game won't end nice for you !!
DON'T BUY IT !!
Why we should buy that Item we habe enough NUKE DMG we don't need IT, it's wasted !!
This Item is not nessacary Kassadin got enough slow !!
This Item can be strong if one other mage in your team also bought it you get about 50 % spell vampire ( yes it stack )(just not two one the same person ) but if you the only one with it I wouldn't buy it, there are other better possibiltys
We already got enough mana regen and only for this less AP and the CD we don't buy this .
There are other better possibiltys
Are you serious don't you think Kassadin deals enough dmg with his other spells ... I don't think this Item is neaded ...
Null Sphere - Kassadin fires an ethereal bolt of void energy, dealing damage and silencing the target for a duration.
Kassadin fires a void bolt, dealing 80/130/180/230/280 (+0.7) magic damage and silencing the target for 1/1.4/1.8/2.2/2.6 second(s).
This is Kassadins main skill espacilly the high dmg and the mute make this skill awesome and Kassadin to a power full anti mage.
Nether Blade - Passive: Kassadin's basic attacks restore Mana. The Mana restored is tripled against enemy champions. Active: Kassadin's basic attacks deal additional magic damage.
Passive: Kassadin's basic attacks draw energy from the void, restoring 8/11/14/17/20 Mana each hit. If the target is an enemy champion, the Mana restored is tripled to 24/33/42/51/60.
Active: Kassadin charges his nether blade for 5 seconds causing his basic attacks to deal an additional 30/45/60/75/90 (+0.15) magic damage.
This skill isn't important for Kassadin as nuker. It's only use it to make force pulse ready !!
Force Pulse - Kassadin draws energy from spells cast in his vicinity. Upon charging up, Kassadin can use Force Pulse to damage and slow enemies in a cone in front of him.
Kassadin draws energy from spells cast in his vicinity, gaining a charge whenever a spell is cast near him. Upon reaching 6 charges, Kassadin can use Force Pulse to deal 80/130/180/230/280 (+0.7) magic damage and slow enemies by 30/35/40/45/50% for 3 seconds in a cone in front of him.
this is kassadins 2.nd Nuke skill with slow and high dmg output.
I love this skills dmg and slow the only bad thing you frist need to use some atacks before you are able to cast it !!
Riftwalk - Kassadin teleports to a nearby location dealing damage to nearby enemy units. Additionally, multiple Riftwalks in a short period of time cause them to cost additional Mana and deal additional damage.
Kassadin teleports to a nearby location dealing 60/90/120 (+0.5) magic damage to surrounding enemy units. Additionally, each subsequent Riftwalk within the next 7 seconds costs 100 additional Mana and deals 60/90/120 additional damage.
This is Kassadins Skill, make him something special ... !!
I just love this skill cause in early / mid game it's a nice gap closer /gap maker skill and in late game it's a 3.rd nuke spell with upper than 6.stacks on it, it realy deals tons on dmg.
Combos laneing 1 (before lvl 6) (prefer)-->
Start with teasing your enemys with 3 to 5 q spells in a row
till the enmys is low life 1/2 // 1/3 NOW u do --->
and if its NEEDEDUse your Ignite thats what it is for
still much dmg per time
THE WOW effect if the enemy is half life and you nuke him our of his sick life with your overawesome combo dmg !!
Combos laneing 2 (before lvl 6)(not prefered) -->
go to your enemy atack him withand on spell after each other
---> do that till your enemy die AND DON'T FORGETT YOUR IGNITE !!
much dmg out put less time
the enemy will fast go on to play passive style if he see your dmg
you will take more dmg if you nuke and aren't fast away out of enemys range don't chase just nuke
Combo laneing (after lvl 6 ) 1 (((I do both combos depends on the situation))) -->
go to your enemy till the range of your q spell can reach him now use
now come a bit closer to use your
now port away with one of the epicst ulti away so you can't take damage OR port on the enemys if he/she/it is low life with your
Combo laneing (after lvl 6 ) 2 (((I do both combos depends on the situation))) -->
port in rage of enemy with your [img=
Now do your
and then run away and collect mana for next atack to kill your enemy with the 2.nd combo
If i do (after lvl 6 combo 1 OR 2 ) depends on the situation AND on the oppement the 2.nd combo IS very epic vs veigar etc cause you have a big range where you can port yourself and the enemy don't know where you will appear so it's hard to continue but if you are to slow by getting away again you will get nuked or hited by an enemy combo as well
1.st combo you have to come to near to your enemy to shoot your skills this sometimes could be a big problem but you minimize the chance to get hitted by an counter nuke (thanks your q spell )
