Introduction

Hi, this is Tamarche's "Kassadin - Purple Blaze" guide. Information in this guide is free and open to anyone who would like to use it. This is my very first guide and I am not as experienced as many others, so please feel free to send me any questions and comments as well as suggestions to improving this guide.

Kassadin was the third champion I bought, after Ashe and Fiddlesticks. Of course, he was the first champion I actually wanted to buy first as well (He looked pretty bad *** when I was browsing through all the champions). He is also the first champion I actually scored my first positive kill/death ratio with back in the day. Sure enough, I started to play him regularly and brought me to this guide here.

As of 11/14/2011, this patch nerfed his Null Sphere range and buffed his Force Pulse ability for early game. I feel this is an acceptable change ever since they nerfed his AP ratio for his Force Pulse.

For a long time, I swore by the "Bad *** Rift Ninja" guide by killraven and you will see a lot of similarities. You might even consider this guide as a derivative work of his more or less. Unfortunately, there isn't a guide with the Season 2 Mastery Trees, so I decided to go ahead and create this guide along with my interpretation of playing as Kassadin.

Pros

  • Good solo mid champion
  • Strong AP burst
  • Good escape/chase strength
  • Looks bad ***
  • Will get lots of praise if played well

Cons
  • Squishy early game
  • Requires proper mana management
  • Usually focused in team fights
