Introduction

This guide is a work in progress, I am currently working on writing up the AS/AP portion of the guide, and will be updating as I get chapters finished. I would appreciate it if people will wait until the AS/AP portion is finished before voting on this guide. Now on to the meat of this chapter.

Kayle is an incredibly versatile champion who can fulfill four out of the five positions commonly found in the current meta. Kayle is fully capable of both solo top and mid, due to having strong harass and a potent heal/escape mechanism. Kayle is also an excellent support champion using her heal and her ulti Intervention to almost guarantee the survival of who ever she happens to be supporting. She is also a viable AD carry, despite the fact that she sacrifices her heal to fulfill that role.

Builds

Since this guide will cover at least three possible Kayle builds, I want to devote some space here to discuss her potential builds.

Kayle is as I have mentioned before an extremely versatile champion who is capable of fulfilling many roles on a team such as:

  • Mage otherwise known as the AP carry
  • Carry otherwise known as the AD carry
  • Fighter otherwise known as the Offtank
  • Support sometimes called the Babysitter
  • Tank should be called the Meatshield

However, the fact that Kayle can fulfill all those roles doesn't necessarily mean she should. Kayle is a champion that has a really wide toolkit to utilize, but it isn't wide enough to make her strong at every position she could fulfill.

For instance Kayle is naturally hard to kill which makes some people think she is suited to be a tank. However if you build Kayle as a tank she loses all most all of her damage and support potential. If you look at most tanks they usually don't do alot of damage but they have some ability which allows them to assist their team in teamfights such as Curse of the Sad Mummy. Kayle lacks such an ability therefore playing Kayle as a tank is a detriment to the team as opposed to a benefit.
