Introduction

Riot accidentally released the updates listed below. They will be releasing the changes in the next patch.



I'm going to be straight forward. This is not going to be lengthy at all.

Why choose this build over the highest ranking build for Kayle? Simple. The highest ranking one is outdated and now Kayle just received some updates to her skills which were not actually listed in the patch notes. I have them here (thanks to nevercore of reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/) (patch of June 22, 2011)

Pre-patch Q:

Dmg per level: 60 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 (+0.8 per ability power)
Mana cost: 80 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 100 mana
Cooldown: 8 Seconds


New Q:

Dmg per level: 80 / 130 / 180 / 230 / 290 (+1.0 per ability power)
Mana Cost: 70 / 75 / 80 / 85 / 90 mana
Cooldown: 8 Seconds


Overall: Buff
Explanation: Increased ratio, increased damage, lowered cost (-10 mana cost per level)

(also, for the new Q, it seems like it slows MUCH more)



Pre-patch W:

Speed Boost - 12% at all levels
Heal per level: 65 / 100 / 135 / 170 / 205 (+0.5 per ability power)
Mana Cost: 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 mana
Cooldown: 10 Seconds
Duration of MS boost 10 seconds


New W:

Speed Boost - 18 / 21 / 24 / 27 / 30 %
Heal per level: 60 / 115 / 170 / 225 / 280 (+0.25 per ability power)
Mana Cost: 75 / 90 / 105 / 120 / 135 mana
Cooldown: 10 Seconds
Duration of MS Boost 4 seconds


Overall: Slight Buff & Slight Nerf
Explanation: Better speed boost that increases as you level the ability, heal increased at later levels Heal decreased at early levels, mana cost increased, duration of MS decreased



Pre-patch E:

Range - +400 (Kayle's range would be 525 while active)
Magic Damage - Magic Damage: 4 / 10 / 16 / 22 / 28 (+0.3 per ability power)
Mana cost: 65 mana all ranks
Duration: 10 seconds
Cooldown: 22 / 21 / 20 / 19 / 18 seconds



New E:

Range - +425 (Kayle's range would be 550 while active)
Magic Damage - Magic Damage: 10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 (+0.3 per ability power)
Mana cost: 50 mana all ranks
Duration: 10 seconds
Cooldown: 17 seconds


Overall: Buff
Explanation: Costs less mana, does more damage, lowered cooldown, and increased range.

Pros / Cons

Pros


Survivability
Nuke
Scary

Cons


Not an attack speed champion in this build (this build relies on Kayle's Q)


Guide Top

Runes & Masteries

When you combine the runes and masteries in this build with doran's ring, you'll be at 56 AP at level 1 (might not be exact but it is around 56)

Since you have mp5 yellows, you can have a little bit of spam with your Q. REMEMBER! This is not a support champion type of build.


Guide Top

Unique Skills

Play like you're veigar or leblanc (with a little more survivability, you're not as squishy as they are) so stay in the back and spam your Q. You can use your E to do a little more damage if you're in the back. You can definitely take advantage of your heals. They will help tremendously.


Guide Top

Farming

If you're being zoned out, max your E before your W.

If you're not being zoned out, just last hit with your basic attack.

Notes

VS Tanks
Get: void staff and/or abyssal scepter (abyssal scepter gives you MR)
