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.
I see you've all decided to check out my kassadin guide,
this guide contains useful information on how to play a kassadin,
but if you are a grammar natzi, or over criticizer gamer i suggest that
you stop reading, and down vote this build. I did not reread it nor spell check it.
On the other hand, if you have suggestions on how i can improve this guide please say so in the comments.
WITH NO FURTHER ADO, PROCEED, ON-WARDS TO GLORY!!!!
When & Why
Kassadin is essentially an anti mage champion, ans as such such not be played against a talon or any other non mage mid champion. You should choose him if the enemy has a squishy AP carry that depends on his spells to burst.
Pros And Cons
Will get raped in lane before level 6
Not the as bursty as some other champs
A little item dependant
They made his splash art look worse in the recent update :*(
Epicly deep voice
cool purple stiff flake around him when he walks
Typical caster runes not much to say..Typicle masteries for castors. As far as Sum. Spells go i like to get flash and ignite for the escape/chase and damage that these spells provide, though ghost, exhaust, and teleport are all viable depending on the situation.
In my opinion, you should almost always start kassadin with boots and three pots. It gives you nice lane sustain and enough mobility to dodge any nasty skill shot they throw at you. Next I get two Doran Rings as they give you nice
mana regen HP and AP, an very nice cost efficient item . I grab a kages lucky pick for the GP 10 and ability power it gives me, this will help alot especially if you are struggling in lane. I finish my boots up because they give me decent magic pen wich help you get you assassination combo off. I you find that you arnt dealing enough damage you can consider delaying this item in favor of sheen. I after i grab boots and a sheen i like to get rabodons. The rest is self explanatory, you can swap Deathfire, guardian, and Abyssal for other sitautional items.
Your laning phase has two parts to it. Pre level 6 and post level six. Before you hit level six your not really going to be able to win any real exchanges so you should just spam your Q and hope the silence and damage deters them from trying anything nasty. IF youre feeling real fancy, you may want to throw a E in there somewhere but otherwise just farm passively and dont try too hard to get a kill. You may want your jungler to gank during this time to prevent you from getting shut down too hard. When you reach six and after you've gotten your sheen your going to want to become a little more aggressive. Go a little out of your way to harass them and begin trying to zone them out. When you see that you have harrased then to about 30-40% HP you should use your W-R-Q-E-basic attack-and ignite combo to finish them off. Dont be afraid to tower dive, you'll be K off you knock of this combo fast enough and you can flash out of turret range if you're low. Dont attempt to dive if you are not confident in your ability to chain attacks or if they have heal up.
Team fight phase thing..
IF you are following my instructions, you should be dominating your lane quite well now, and should have plenty of time to roam and beat up on other champions. As you are not tanky enough to take 2 many tower hits youre going to want to gank pushed lanes. When ganking you should flash in with youre R then use youre ultimate sure kill combo (Q.E.W) to help your teamates rape the enmys in the ensuing 3v2. feel free to use your R-Q to finish any1 that survived your initial burst. In team fights your going to want to flash onto the squishy carries, use your burst kill them then use flash and R to run away from the other enemy's. Also at the end of team fights your going to want to use your R,Q,W to finish of the low health enemy's
Please note the "like" button on the tow right side of the screen, to trully make your kassadin into the killing machine that he has the potential to be your going to want to click it, and ad a nice comments as well. Again i apologise for my bad grammer and comma failures. Ime from ENgland so American is not my 1st language. :P
