Introduction

Introduction



Hey guys! This is my first Kennen guide. Kennen is an excellent team player and he can also carry! He can be played both AD and AP. In my opinion both of these build paths work, it just depends on who you're up against. My guide explains in detail how to play both AD and AP Kennen.





Ability Power Kennen


AP Kennen is the most used build path for Kennen players. AP Kennen provides excellent burst damage to focus down squishy targets, combined with his reliable CC AP Kennen can be quite deadly in 1 v 1's. The only problem AP Kennen has is during Team-Fights. He gets focused down too easily if one isn't careful as he needs to go right into the middle to deal most of his damage.

Attack Damage Kennen


Kennen is the under-dog AD carry. AD Kennen works surprisingly well, the equivalent of Caitlyn damage wise, with the combined CC and Utility of AP Kennen PLUS you have Energy and not Mana. The only problem with AD Kennen is he gets focused very hard.

DIFFICULTY



DAMAGE





Again thanks for checking out my guide. Please try the build in game before you dislike or comment horrible things :). I am open to suggestions/ Constructive Criticism/ ideas.






A BIG Thank you to jhoijhoi the ultimate Girl-gamer out there who I totally copied for template for this build which you can find here.
