Introduction

Hey. I've been playing League of Legends for quite some time now and this game is the first based on DoTA. At first, I failed. I'm not going to lie, because I did. I would always play bot games, even up to around level 20. However, one of my friends got me into playing PvP games and the amount you learn from those type of games is incredible. I've tried almost every single champion up to the latest, that being Nautilus and one champion I really enjoy playing is Kennen. That ninja can be extremely OP if played correctly, and I've seen it being done a couple of times by not only myself, but other people. I am still not the best Kennen player, and probably will never be, but this is how I play Kennen, the Heart of the Tempest.

Oh by the way, this is my first guide hehe.

Pros/Cons

Pros/Cons
Pros:

-Extreme harass with Thundering Shuriken
-Energy based, more sustain in lane
-Escape mechanism with Lightning Rush
-AOE stun if combo is done correctly
-Insane AOE ult ( Slicing Maelstrom)
-He's a ninja...can it get any better?


Cons:
-Not the best ability power ratios
-If combos are not done correctly, situation may get messy
-Can be squishy without Rylai's Crystal Scepter and other defensive items

Runes

Runes:
To me, runes are the second most debatable category for a champion after item build. This is because it mainly depends on your playing style (defensive, aggressive, careless, etc.)
