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.
kennen is an ap mage who has many tricks to do massive damage and stun lock your oppenents. kennens build is strongest as ability power. ad kennen is weak. kennes simple combo is e to w to q to r. wait till you use your ult until your oppent is stunned already to stun him again with your ult. kennen is a strong mid as well as a solo top. if your in the mood to piss off your enemies and do massive damage, take a try with kennen the heart of a tempest
runes and masteries
these runes will set you up for a deadly mid game. your ap is maxed at level 18 with these runes as well. taking all the ap masteries and some defense masteries will help you as well
great durability and damage come with these items. early spell vamp helps you to stay alive. a trick i use is to q the wraiths through the wall to get some health back. in team fights use your ult on as many champ as you can and make sure to w after your ult is up to try and trigur stuns. if your targeted use zhonyas to change their target or they will be killed by your teamates
simple mid spells. can be replace with heal exhuast or teleport. clense isnt needed on kennen promote and revive if you wanna troll clarity, he dosent even use mana. surge is a weak spell in my opinion dont need ghost becuase of your e. clarovoyance (or however you spell it) is more of a support spell
make sure to stun the highest damage dealer and make sure your team attacks that person while theyre stunned and your abilites are on cooldown. if youre targeted and you use your zhonyas and you are still trieing to be targeted make sure your team takes advantage of free kills. if your low youll have to escape and make sure they keep you alive as kennen is a very important player in a team fight.
q is always first. what is leveled up after the q can be differed but i prefer e first. take ulti when available
kennen is banned sometimes but when he is not someone should take advantage of it! when team is ready for a gank YOU should engage because you have a stun. (unless its ww who comes out of nowhere) kennen fits into any team comp so expirment with him!
kennen make for a great ganker so make sure you take advantage of it and gank top 90% of the time. gank bot is their support is building ap because that means they not have boughten wards. you engage with your basic combo and get some kills. i find that when my mid or top is stronger or more skilled then me or he is stacking MR (**** YOU GALIO!) getting kills in other lanes is your best way to compete with him.
i freaking love kennen. he is very overpowered and kicks ***! he counters many people (kassadin so nice try *****!) and is countered by little people (fiddle your gay) so take a try have fun and kick ***!GL AND HF !:)
