Introduction

Hello, and thank you for checking out my first build for kennen and fist build ever. When i started playing kennen i realized he had a lot of potential that wasnt being met as just ap. I noticed that whenever i ran in to do my E-Q-W combo, it didnt always kill them, so i was left poking them with basic attacks until they got away, i died, or i had to run away. After playing a few games with him, i fiquered out that by building hybrid, it didnt matter if i killed them straight away because my white damage combined with my passive from my W would kill them. And thats why i decided to put my build on here so everyone else could play kennen and have the most fun.

Runes

I chose flat attack damage marks becauseit gives your white damage early on the kick it need, and the ad marks give more ad than seals or glyphs would. I chose cdr seals because instaed of having to worrry abaout mana, you have to worry about cooldowns seeing as you have no mana. Next i chose ap glyphs bfor the same reasons as the ad marks, giving your suriken more damage and giving you more of it. Finally i chose flat health quints to give a bit more survivability until you pick up the rylais.

Items

Rageblade is your first core always, on almost any hybrid. Merc Treads > Ninja for the reduced CC as a CCed Kennen is a dead Kennen. Next item would be a Bloodrazor, and after that build ryails crystal scepter. Then nashors and finally the Gunblade [Gunblade is always better lategame once you have stats]

Skill Sequence

Kennen is one of the champions that you need your three abilities at level three to do anything. after that pick up one more point in E and W and then max out your Q picking up R whenever you can.

Summoner Spells

Flash is always a good choice for any champion (unless youre playing as kassadin or ezreal) and ignite will help in your E-Q-W combo early on when your white damage may still not be enough.

Summary

All in all, kennen is a very fun champion to play and ive enjoyed him even more since i started playing hybrid. i feel more powerful and i contribute to my team more. thanks for reading and i hope you have a fun time playing as kennen.
