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.
Hello every one, this build is to be a full carry that can shred other champions of thier lives :P. Very early on You will notice the damage you will do. If you are a frequent Kayle user then you know how she works but if you need a little help with starting out then check out the rest of the lower chapters. This build works for 3v3 and 5v5. The stats that are shown dont have percent runes added to it or the attack speed and ap you will get from rageblade so she is stronger and has more life at end game close to 2700. I didnt add any cool pictures or little clicking icons this is serious bussiness :P
The Full Destruction runes in the quintessence and mark slots are used for early game harrass and minion farm as well as the attack speed runes. The health percent runes for more durability through out the game. A little below 2700 life at level 18 with the health runes and elixer.
As you can see almost all the items have some kind of attack speed. The Ionic Spark is a very good farming item and gives a good amount of health to help you get that expensive Hextech gunblade and after that the other items will come fast. Make sure you use the Hextech activate to get rid of banshee's viel.
In the masteries there is a point in Summoner's wrath so both Ghost and Surge will be improved. Ghost to get away or chase someone down with Surge activated to ensure the kill, you will keep up even if they flash. Surge is very usefull, it has a low cool down but only use it on champion fights, taking towers, or killing down Dragon and Baron Nashor faster. Kayle gets 40% attack speed when Surge is activated at all levels and 86 ability power at level 18 for 12 seconds ( the ability power you get through out leveling is good too) thats like having a Recuve Bow on activate at any level and a Needlessly large Rod pluse 6 more ability power at level 18! That is TWO ITEMS EXTRA!
Her abilities are almost self explanatory but for her ultimate there is different situations to use it with this build. If you get one of those teams that dont pick anyone tanky and no one is building tanky then you can be a martyr :) ultimate your self while your initiating a group fight and focus their carry, they will most likely use almost all thier abilities on you but by the time your dead all of them will be hurt really bad and one might be dead and your team will clean up :P and you might live if they change targets and you can kill alot of them. If you are going one on one use your ult at start of fight and make sure you use Surge at all fights.
Early game don't worry about kills just play passive and farm untill you get your Ionic Spark, then your farm will be easier and jungle will be very fast if you can get some, then champion kills if you have the opportunity.
Creeping / Jungling
Middle game creeps and jungle will be very easy by then you should have Ionic spark and hextech building. Use your Reckoning on the main buff minions.
As I explained in the Unique Skilles section, your ult is very important and can be a game changer depending how you use it. This build is squishy so ulting your self is always tempting but if your not getting targeted use it on the person that is taking the most damage or the person that initiates. Since this build does alot of damage you want to focus the enemys carry, they will go down fast with a Reckoning on them and your Surge activated and the splash damage from Righteous Fire and Ionic spark will damage the other enemys really good.
Pros / Cons
PRO's you WILL do a lot of damage and fast and control jungle easly. Range attacks with Area of affect damage along with the Ionic Spark will do alot of damage the more then one enemy. Your ultimate makes anyome immune to damage for 3 seconds maxed out. Two slows (Hextech Gunblade and Reckoning).
CON'S Kayle is naturally squishy but depending on how you use your ult and how your team works, you can stay at range. Early game slow.
Finally but not least use common sense when leveling, don't be too daring you will be vulnerable untill you get your ultimate or Ionic Spark, your farm will be much better after you get your Ionic Spark. Buy potions as needed and late game you can sell Ionic Spark for a different item (i.e: Madred's Bloodrazor, Trinity Force) if needed but Ionic Spark is still good. Activate your surge when taking turrets, going for champion kills or to bring down Baron Nashor faster or Dragon, dont use it to farm. I know you will have fun killing people and the feeling you get doing the damage you do with this build so give me a vote ~_^ and invite me as a friend I love to play LOL :P
