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.
Hey and welcome to my Dominion guide of Kayle. I've been using this build since Dominion beta came out, I hear alot people saying in begin game that I should not pick Kayle in Dominion, or any not tanky dps. Well 90% of the people have taken back those words at endgame. Since some of my friends requested this build from me I decided to make it on mobafire. It is not an easy champion since there are some tricks with kayle you can only know by playing with her for some time. I hope you try my build and win some games.
Your main summoner spell, I don't recommend going without this spell. Use it on start to get top first, even if theres champion faster then you. With this you can get to turrets fast combined with Divine Blessing whenever there is a need to.
I basicly use this whenever im solo on a capture point when im at low health, when I use this I kite the enemy champion around the capture point if he decides to jump in to kill me.
With this you can also finish of those tanky dps'ers, use it when you're stacks from Sanguine Blade and Guinsoo's Rageblade are at 5 or more if you're going for the kill.
Use this to take over turrets when theres a champion on it. Using it while defending is kind of a waste. Only in team fights at a turret it may be usefull, but still try to avoid using it on defending. Using this while attacking a turret where theres only 1 champion makes it hard for you to lose with your ult.
A not so much recommended skill, you may get a kill or two with it, but remember Dominion is about Capture Point, so instead of chasing a champion go to a turret. You can use it as escape spell. But still it's not recommended because getting out alive in a losing teamfight is not so likely, even if you die it's not going to change the game that much.
9x Greater Mark of Desolation
9x Greater Seal of Attack Speed
9x Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction
3x Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
You really want that attack speed, every hit gives you an stack from and . So the faster you get at max stacks the more dmg you deal. Also they be hating you at low level.
Desolation for ofc. more dps.
To decrease your skills CD, more ult means more kills/assists.
Always your first skill to use against an enemy champion. Also use it to run away, or help an teammate run away. The damage from the skill is not that important but the increased dmg from items is.
Healing is not that usefull in dominion since there is a 20% healing reduce. Use it to move faster to the capturepoints. Also you can use this to run away or help your teammate out.
Your main dmg skill. Activate after Reckoning for more dmg. Never go into battle without activating this, because without you will have to fight closeby and since your kinda squishy they will kill you quickly. I do not recommend chasing an enemy with low hp when this skill is on CD, though if you can make sure its a kill you should not hesitate. If it's not a kill rather then chasing go to a capturepoint.
The most important skill ofc. your ult. Use this to start a teamfight, fly in and as soon as you start getting dmg you should activate ult and use Righteous Fury. If you know they will kill you anyway when your ult is down, don't hesitate to run out with Divine Blessing, or even try to get atleast 1 kill.
Start off with these attack speed items, since you quite some dmg allready you'll be dealing alot of dmg faster. But remember they will be hitting you alot aswell.
More attack speed and some life steal, you'll be really loving the lifesteal. When you use your ult you can quickly regain some health against a champion because you have alot of attack speed. This can turn a 1vs1 in your favor.
Ability cooldown and attack speed are the most important stats on this. The AP and MP5 arent that useless either. You are useless if your CD is to low. Never go into battle if your skills are on CD, but that should be common sense.
Now this is my favourite item in dominion. Attack dmg + Lifesteal + Stacks of attackdmg and lifesteal. The more you hit the more powerfull you become, in a 1vs1 its mostly a win for kayle. You should always be pushing minion with you, so if you're on low health you can quickly regain from minions and save some time.
Another item that gives stack, but more AP based. Every hit you hit faster. At 8 stacks you will have +32% attack speed +48AP according to this item.
Having problems with champions that are stacking health? This gives more attackspeed and dmg, but the best part is that the more health your opponents have the more you hit on them.
For example an enemy champion has 2500 HP, you'll be hitting an extra 62.5 magic damage on them.
If it even comes so far, I think this should be you're last item. More AD, AP, Lifesteal and
Spell Vamp. The spell vamp should work with Righteous Fury, so it makes this item even more interesting.
This build is still under construction, it may have some errors in it.
Dominion is new and will probably change alot in the future, builds for champions will change and probably this build aswell. Feel free to post comments, and if you like or dislike it, tell me why.
