Introduction


Hey Guys this is my first guide and i am going to talk to you about Kennen.

I have been playing LOL for around 4 months and there are several characters i have played as but kennen really jumped out as a fun AP Carry you can play as. There are many ways that i have seen Kennen played and i think that the best way to play him is as an AP character.
(all of his moves get buffed by AP).

Pros / Cons

PROS

All moves well buffed by his AP
Amazing Harasser
Strong no matter what stage of game
Great Hit n Run
Stuns

Cons

Squishy
Target
Not a tank, cannot charge very hard
Don't be greedy


Guide Top

Masteries

The masteries i have done suits Kennen a lot. Because he is so squishy you need to put a lot onto your defense. Every little bit of defense will help kennen stay alive.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

IGNITE
Use this for that little bit of extra damage when opponent is fleeing.
FLASH
Use this for getting away or for an element of surprise when attacking a 1v1.

OR

GHOST
Instead of Flash works well on defensive and offensive sides.

NOT TO GET

HEAL
Should not need it.
CLARITY
Uses energy not mana
SMITE
Good farming any way, dont need to jungle

Skill Sequence

I like to max out on THUNDERING SHURIKEN very early because it allows for great harassing and will deal a lot of damage at level 3-5. The others i like to spread out and you can be change around to suit the opponents that you are versing.


Guide Top

Early Game

At the start get THUNDERING SHURIKEN. I like going into the mid as Kennen is probably the best mid champion. Grab a DORANS SHIELD. The shield will help you stay in the lane for a while till around level 7. By then you will have enough money for the boots and KAGES LUCKY PICK. When you hit level 3 use E then W then Q combo then bail back behind your minions. This will work very work to harass your opponent. When you hit level 6 add your ulti to the combo. When your opponent is below half health go all out on him. You should be able to kill him.


Guide Top

Mid Game

By now you should have your Void Staff and a bunch of other AP items keep in your lane but watch other lanes as well top sent up a gank.


Guide Top

LATE END GAME

You will want your RABADABONS DEATHCAP, make sure your team is setting up ganks that your involved in. Kennen can turn Team fights around very easily with his Ulti use when appropriate. Make your you do not start the fight you will get targeted and die very quickly.

Summary

All in all this is how I play as kennen and i hope you guys enjoyed this build. Remember that Kennen works amazingly well as a AP even a Carry.
