Who is Kayle the Judicator
In a world far away where an ancient war still rages, Kayle was a great heroine - the strongest of an immortal race committed to destroying evil wherever it could be found. For ten thousand years, Kayle fought tirelessly for her people, wielding her flaming sword forged before time itself. She shielded her delicate features beneath her enchanted armor, the sole remaining masterpiece of an extinct race of craftsmen. Though a beautiful, striking creature, Kayle, now as then, avoids showing her face; war has taken a terrible toll upon her spirit. In her quest for victory, she sometimes would try to lift the wicked up from their morass of evil, but more than often she instead purged those she herself deemed beyond redemption. To Kayle, justice can so often be an ugly thing.
Ten years ago, Kayle's war against evil was nearly won... until her rebellious sister Morgana, a pariah amongst their people, suddenly gained powerful new allies: magicians of a hitherto unknown world called Runeterra. Morgana traded servitude to a number of the summoners in Runeterra's League of Legends for powerful new abilities that, if mastered, threatened to bring Kayle and her people to their knees. To save her world, Kayle had no choice but to make a pact with the League herself. She approached the leader of the League, High Counselor Reginald Ashram, with a deal of her own. In exchange for a thousand years of Kayle's service, Ashram halted all League interference on Kayle's world. With Ashram's disappearance five years ago, Kayle has new causes on Valoran: find out who or what caused Ashram to disappear, defeat her sister Morgana upon the Fields of Justice, and bring her own brand of justice to the League of Legends.
"In the League of Legends, Justice comes on swift wings."
Pros + Cons
Flash is a very good Summoner Spell , you can chase down the fleeing enemies or jump over walls in case YOU are the the one running, unlikely though.
Ignite will help you burst people down early game, and counter their pity attempts to heal. It is very good for ksing! (Kill securing)
Barrier often catches people by surprise, and can be the summoner spell to turn the tide in your favour.
As Kayle you want to be the last one into the teamfight, let your tanks/ bruisers initiate for you and stay beside your ADC acting as a second support heal them and constantly attack anyone that comes name with your q-e combo just like the ADC. During the fight if you se anybody low remember to get your ult on them which can easily turn the tides of a loosing teamfight, but prioritise getting it onto you or your ADC if needs be.
High risk high reward tactic:
This way is probably the one you want to take if you are quite fed, but make sure you have your Zhonyas up for this, again let your bruisers engage and get straight to their back line, if you get there quick enough you should be able to burst down their adc/apc, for this way its better to ult sooner rather than later because you will most likely be focused down and ulting earlier means you block their burst damage.
Much like any assassin Kayle thrives at picking off enemy squishies whilst flying around in the jungle, once you see both teams facing eachother off try and loop around the side and catch the adc/apc who is coming in to help the teamfight, if you do that its basically an insta win teamfight for your tema with zero losses on your side BUT REMEMBER people like Vayne can shut kayle down quite easily.
