Welcome to my guide this will show you how i play kha'zix hope you enjoy.

Somethings about me:I'm a person that has made about two guides so far and has a youtube channel,my youtube channel is here and if you want to see my other guides check them out here for Lee Sin solo top<<<.Next guide is my Kennen Guide here

So your going to say why are we going to be going top? because i dont like the fact that if you jungle and if you get counter jungled or anything that will set you back it will break you but solo top Kha'Zix is broken by alot of champions and in this bruiser meta it wont be easy but trust me if you play smart you can become a Talon VERSON 2 and deal tons of damage.

Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

Greater Mark of Attack Damage

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist

Greater Mark of Armor Penetration
So we are going to talk about runes to take and you need them to go top.

Greater Seal of Resilience
This is a great rune to take when going to or to jungle it helps and you need this.

Greater Mark of Desolation
Greater Mark of Desolation
So it seems like alot of top players like to build Ninja Tabi> Chain Vest ect so we are getting 6 of theses now your going to say why dont we just get 9? because you are rushing The Brutalizer.

Greater Mark of Strength
We're getting 3 of theses because you will have a even 10 armor pen and 10 flat ad from your runes chaox runs this on Graves

Greater Glyph of Warding
Flat magic resist is normal if theres a ap top or mid ganks you or ect.

Greater Quintessence of Strength
This makes you have 10 flat damage and is a great Quintessence overall

Other runes you can take


Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

Greater Mark of Attack Damage

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
ok so your just going to run flat ad runes and thats pretty much it if you dont like my choice of runes you can take theses flat ad is a good way to do damage but dont bit3ch if they stack armor.

Standard 9-21-0 masteries you will need to go this because the bruiser meta and will help alot.

I have nothing to talk about this if you want to ask about this i will answer.

Summoner Spells


This will change if you get a kill or not,when its on cool down it gives 5 ad pretty decent.


Again could get you a kill or could get you away from someone saved my life alot this is not a must but i recommend it.

Other spells you can take and spell combos

Spell combo Silso

About this spell combo is that a player named silso runs Heal and Ignite every game on any champion you have to play super aggressive for this to work and its really risky.

Other spells you can run.

This spell i have runned it when i jungled Kha'Zix's it worked well i guess you can take this with Flash.

Want to ward gank bot, mid, or split push? take this i can see this might be usefull
but people might say wtf why are you taking Teleport this is up to you if you want to take this

Skill Explanation and Sequence

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
You will be maxing your Q first Taste Their Fear it does great damage and is the best to max.when you hit level 6 you will put your first evolve point into Q Taste Their Fear .Next skill your going to max your E Leap because i noticed it does ok damage but the mana cost does not go UP and the cool down goes down every time you level it up.Now your level 11 you have your second evolve point put it into your E Leap.Lastly you are going to max your W Void Spike.At level 16 you want to put your last evolve skill point into your R Void Assault.


Taste Their Fear:PASSIVE: Kha'Zix marks enemies that are isolated from their allies.
ACTIVE: Deal physical damage to a single target. Damage against isolated targets is significantly increased.
PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 70 / 100 / 130 / 160 / 190 (+ 160% bonus AD)
PHYSICAL DAMAGE TO ISOLATED TARGET: 100 / 145 / 190 / 235 / 280 (+ 240% bonus AD)

Evolved Enlarged Claws

Increases damage to isolated targets by 12% of their missing health (max 200 vs monsters). Increases range of Taste Their Fear and Kha'Zix's Basic Attacks by 50.

Lets talk about this skill one of the best ad ratios in the game and the mana cost STAYS AT 25...... do you see that 25 every level and the damage is really good just look at the stats and you would max this first even if i didnt say max it,Now this is the first thing your going to evolve if you have a problem with this SUCK IT.


Void Spike:ACTIVE: Kha'Zix fires spikes that explode on contact, dealing physical damage to all nearby enemies. Kha'Zix is healed if he is within the explosion radius.
PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 75 / 115 / 155 / 195 / 235 (+ 90% bonus AD)
HEAL: 40 / 70 / 100 / 130 / 160 (+ 50% AP)
COST: 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 mana

Evolved Spike Racks

Causes Void Spike to fire three spikes in a cone. Void Spike will consume Unseen Threat to slow and damage all enemies struck.

Lets talk about this skill =/. I do not see why i should max this second the heal/damage goes up BUT the mana goes up and thats something Kha'Zix needs.I really dont see why you should evolve this its pretty bad in my mind.


Leap:COOLDOWN: 22 / 20 / 18 / 16 / 14COST: 50 mana

ACTIVE: Kha'Zix leaps to an area, dealing physical damage to enemies in the area.
PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 65 / 100 / 135 / 170 / 205 (+ 80% bonus AD)

Evolved Wings

Increases Leap's range and causes kills and assists to refresh Leap's cooldown.
RANGE: 600 - 900.

Lets talk about this skill =D.I pretty much love Kha'Zix because of this spell when its evolved do you see that range 900....... 900!!!!!! THATS LIKE TWO FLASH RANGES! and we are maxing this skill second because the cool down goes down and it does decent damage This is the second thing your going to evolve because it gives you alot more killing potatinal and mobility.Cough cough... RESETS ON KIIL OR ASSIST DA FAK OP RIGHT??


Void Assault:PASSIVE: Each rank of Void Assault allows Kha'Zix to evolve one of his abilities, granting it an additional effect.
ACTIVE: Kha'Zix enters stealth for 1 second, gaining 40% bonus movement speed. Entering stealth grants Unseen Threat. Void Assault can be cast a second time within 10 seconds at no cost.

Evolved Active Camouflage

Void Assault can be cast three times. Kha'Zix takes 40% reduced damage while in stealth.

Again lets talk FAK THIS YOU KNOW WHAT WE TALKING ABOUT! this is a great skill gives you back your passive and gives you 40% move speed nothing else to say.Your going to evolve this skill last your going to ask why well because its about mid-late game and you cant take alot of damage well when this is evolved,when your stealth you take 40% reduced damage and thats alot and you will need to be tanking a few shots to get to carrys also it gives you a extra ult for free =D

Item Sequence

Health Potion

Health Potion

Health Potion

Long Sword

The Brutalizer

Doran's Blade

B. F. Sword

The Bloodthirster

Mercury's Treads
So were starting off with Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potion's in my mind the best things you want next lets talk about buying The Brutalizer this gives you cool down and armor pen and a little ad a great early game snowballing item.Next up is one Doran's Blade why one you ask is that you need a little bit of hp and life steal, you can buy two if you its about 15mins or 20mins you should have your B. F. Sword now you have a choice to roam or to farm up for your The Bloodthirster its up to you how you want to play.and it should be about 25mins in the game or sooner buy your tier two boots.
Item Sequence

Null-Magic Mantle

Guardian Angel


Last Whisper
So this is mid game to late game you want to pick up the Chain Vest for adc or the ad top lanner for the team fights thats coming then get a Null-Magic Mantle then Guardian Angel one option you could do is go Last Whisper first then Guardian Angel this is risky but it will give you alot of damage,if you picked up the GA then pick up a Pickaxe into Last Whisper.
Item Sequence

Frozen Mallet
This is late game and this is were you can pick burst or more HP.
i find nothing more cost effective then Frozen Mallet this has a built in slow so no one is getting away and it has a little bit of damage and 700 health pretty overall good item or you could go for a other The Bloodthirster i like going more burst then HP.


: this is a overall great item why is this a core item? because just ths stats is great.You can skip this if you want but i dont recommended it.

:This is where most of your burst and damage comes from and this you can not skip,You can do about 50% of the adc or ap carrys hp when you pick this up.

:After getting a Bloodthirster getting these boots because it well help you with AP carrys and the tenecity helps you this is a must item you can skill this but i dont recommended it again.....

:This gives you a great amount of armor and MR this is the only item your getting with armor and MR so this is a must and it revives you when i die DO NOT SKIP THIS ITEM!!!!!!!!

Other items you can get

: i use to get this when Kha'Zix first came out but i stopped and i started to go pure damage dont get me wrong this is a great item to get but it seems to me i dont do enough damage for a item you spend 4k gold on thats a bloodthirster or a GA and BF sword =/ you can buy this but i dont like this anymore.

:i have never bought this on Kha'Zix but i can see you getting all your health from this one item i would say skip Last Whisper then after you get Warmog's Armor grab a Last Whisper.

:i have seen alot of Kha'Zixs buy this item in my mind i dont like it but the speed you get from this can get you the kill or get away from getting killed i would only pick this up if im beating top lane so bad that i can roam top-mid and top- bot,i think this is a roaming boots for him.

:i buy these when im losing but not dying this is a great item for Riven for example blocks about half of her damage.

Other starting items you can get.

/ 5x:so you could start out with this if top is double ad OR its Garen/ Jax.i will list more things later.

:this is super risky but if you know you can get the kill go for this but its still super risky.

Situational Items

Coming soon busy with studying

Guide Top

Match ups

Hard:this is like your a baby and your fighting manny pacquiao.

medium:This is like when you have a crush on this girl in your freshmen class and you wait till your senor year to ask her out it can go both ways man you can get her or not =/.
Easy:K to win the world championships of 2013 of league of legends you have to punch the baby thats all and gg.....


So lets break this down if Riven is a good player she would grab Cloth Armor and 5 Health Potion's if not your going to have a great time killing her so stay passive till level 4 if she trys to harass you auto attack her then Taste Their Fear then back off that should chunk her.So when your level 4 you could risk it and go for a kill but thats really risky for me i think about how much hp/armor ect think about this because she does damage to.If your not going to go for a level 4 kill get to level 6-7 then evolve your Q then if she did not go back auto attack her then run into the bush and get back your passive (you need your passive for this to work) then go at her again with your passive spam Q W E then R if she runs but if your running from her use your R to get out and your E most Rivens will try to push you around just let them till 4 and teach the a leason i will put a skill combo below this and a video of me doing this =D


Video of me doing what i said and also me going for carrys ect.

i will add more later when i can go top.

How i play Kha'zix some important things read this!

How i play Kha'Zix

i treat him as a sexy girl that you need to take care of and make her happy so that means in league terms tons of damage and going in last and cleaning up or doing a one night stand with this sexy lady and just wrecking so no one would want her ever again BUT YOU!!!! So remember dont go in first Kha'Zix is a assassin with alot of burst and your building glass cannon remember this!

i would like to add that you will be roaming at around level 6- what ever level you stop roaming

this is important when your playing Kha'Zix because you need to snowball and you wont find a adc and support coming top for no reason only if its a lane swap or its a 4 man dive and that sucks.

Things i do when i roam

i would shove my lane or take the tower even have at least 120-160+ cs at the 20min mark to roam the reason i state you have 120-160+ cs is because cs is important if you watch a tip top pro player like hotshotgg or dyrus you will see them have a big whopping 120 cs at like 12mins in the game im not that great at csing but this is a tip top pro here so im just setting the roaming time and cs mark you need to hit to roam and snow ball.When ganking bottom go for a lane gank or try going from the tribush and aim for the adc then the support or if the support is going to die Leap to the support Q them then Leap to the adc and finish him/her off.

If your ganking mid

Best thing to do is come out of the top bush with your ult on Leap to them auto attack them Q,W,R auto attack dead. if mid is having a hard time in mid help them out when you turn level 6 because Kha'Zix has so much ganking potential that you have to use it.

Getting blue buff or red buff

So when im going for red buff or blue buff i would see what the time is and when it hits around 7:04-7:16(this is only if they started at blue first same thing applies to if they started at red buff first) for blue buff i would go there even if top is getting pushed because you should be level 5-6 this is a easy kill or this is a free buff this will help you beat your lane even more.
