Threats to Kindred with this build
|Garen||Demacia! More seriously after you reach lvl3 and get at least 3stacks on passive he'll be food to you if he pushes toplane|
I think early game kindred is one of the worse junglers i've seen, sometimes i just wanna duo top till i hit lvl 3 xD
Jokes aside : first of all mark enemy jungler, start with W as first skill; go ALWAYS for ancient krug and ask for teammate's , smite it first, if you hit lvl2 (ie if teammates didn't troll you on first camp) go for red buff pop a pot or 2, Q it as an engage, and W , the key here is kiting, move between every auto attack or you'll die, hit Red Brambleback till it is stunned, hit one of the small monsters to lower its HP and use Q to finish it, hit Red Brambleback again and Q, to kill it,
after this either go for rift scuttler or back then go for whichever camp your passive marked, usually its either one of scuttlers or enemy raptors,
if you marked scuttler put a ward near the entrance the the river from midlane side (between the bush that separates midlane from river and the bush that is in the river, get a hit on scuttler after your W's passive is at 100stacks to heal, then sit in the bush for few seconds,chances are you'll find a smart enemy jungler that is trying to deny your hunt, and since he'll most likely come with low health from jungle you just got yourself a free kill and 2hunts :D
Go to kill crimson raptor OR a marked camp, then go for Blue Sentinel and smite it to get mana back, then go for wolves and get gromp last (smite that), after you hit lvl3 and get stalker's blade jungle should be generally easy
If by chance your passive
With kindred i'd suggest hitting lvl3 and having at least 3stacks on passive you can start ganking, usually i either go for top, or midlane, but you can go for botlane, choose whichever has less escape chances and no hard CC (ex: garen top, lux mid and and adc + morgana bot : run to garen FTW),
Mark them,hide in the bush till they either push or come near you (they know they're hunted so their first reflex will be warding the bush (coughcoughsuicide,)and tell your teammate before you come to "let them push", engage them with Q and try to land your E on them then W, they will eitehr flash (1wasted flash) or run for it, if they run try Q, AA (auto attack) and smite them (get stalker's blade for fozen smite, it does wonders on kindred's ganks and overall damage), then Q again and AA, you last AA will send wolf that will most likely come back with a kill between hs teeth
At level 6 with 4or more stacks fi your teamates are all engaging enemies on their respective lanes, go to drake, ward the enemy jungle to solo drake (kindred destroys drake), move around to get heal from W, if you're gonna get killed Q away from him and ult yourself (make sure drake isn't in range) and finish off drake feeling like a freaking tryndamere.
Mid game you'll be every enemy's worse nightmare, if you have 6stacks or more around 20mins every single one of your ganks will end up with a dead enemy, try use this and tell your teammates to either go baron (coz you're a freaking kindred you can 3v1 baron while 2of your teammates lure the enemy on lane) or make a surprise gank on midlane, kill their midlaner, hardpush midlane to get as many towers as possbile and kill every single enemy that comes.
Kindred's usefulness drops drastically when teamfights start, you'll be every enemy's main focus for these 3 reasons : you have sated devourer, you're the easiest to kill (squishy as hell and less range than most adc), and you deal a **** ton of damage if they don't get you first.
Try stay in the middle of your team's formation between your tank/support in frontline and your adc in backline and poke your enemies along with your APC.
If both teams engage don't enter the teamfight you'll get turned to mince meat, instead act like an adc, and roam around your enemies and poke them from a safe distance, never engage teamfights let the tanks do it and just support them by killing anything they aagro.
If you're targeted kite, NEVER turn around just keep running and use Q W E Q Q to run away and do damage to the enemy, if they're low on hp try land 3autos on them to get a kill
