Heres a build I've been using lately and usually works really well for a hybrid Kassadin.

PROS:
- Really good Anti-mage
- High damage output
- Easy to get away with rift walk

CONS:
- Very Squishy
- Mana dependant on early game


WAY TO PLAY IT:


Attack speed is your main focus, this is cause you will be using many items and skills with "on hit effects"

Early game: You are a snack for any other champion around, stay safe until you get your riftwalk, rely more on your null sphere and stay out of trouble. Use basic attack for minions.

Mid game: As the game progresses, you will become more of a physical DPS. Make use of Netherblade to take down those nasty armored champions

Late game: Stay near your team, go on random missions with stealth chars and try gank the other team effectively, such as by riftwalking from the other side of a wall! Join forces with tanks in your team to bring towers down.


BE FLEXIBLE AS THE GAME PROGRESSES:
You have to be VERY flexible on the build depending on how the game is going, for example:

- If there are no mages on the other team, get Last Whisper instead of Wits end, and build up a trinity force instead of Banshees Veil.
- If you need to take out tanks, get Black cleaver at some point.

- If you feel like you are getting killed too easily, get Banshees Veil earlier in the game.
- If you are totally winning, consider buying BOTH Sword of the Occult AND Mejias Soulstealer.

These are choices you will become more used to the more you play.


ABILITIES:
Null shpere: This is your way to get kills at the early game stages.

Netherblade: this is you way to gain mana through its passive. you will need it. In Late game you will use it for its +50 armor penetration!!

Force pulse: you need this ONLY as a slower until end game, when you will actually use it as damage output.

Riftwalk: your way to get kills, and prevent deaths. Says it all



RUNES:
- You need attack speed for the "on hit" effects to be more useful.
- You need cooldown reduction to use riftwalk more often.
