+1 Vote and Rep m8. This is excellent and I really love the in depth information you gave. I never build exactly like anyone's guide says but your definitely gave me some new ideas and that's what matters most. Lich Bane was a choice I hadn't considered which I will definitely give a whirl next game. But do you not like the Ice Born Gauntlet? Just curious if you ran it as it gives a ton of beneficial stats to Kassidan and you still get the proc of the sheen. I am still new to Kassidan as evident by my very rough bot game last night. But his late game potential is extraordinary. Again many thanks! Cheers!


The only problem with Ice Born Gauntlets is that the extra damage scales off your AD. Otherwise it isn't a bad item choice. The ability cooldown granted is great for Riftwalk and the armor is nice for survivability. Don't let anyone tell you ability cool down is bad for Kassadin, every second counts for Riftwalk and that's why Riot nerfed the cooldown from rank 3 at three seconds to 5 seconds. I would use ice born over lich bane if the AD champions are a problem, otherwise Lich Bane is more cost effective and deals or damage on Kassadin.

Lich bane is probably imo a must on Kassidan the damage output is insane with this and helps remarkably with kills. Though I do like the double rod of ages for the tankiness still it takes a while to build two and lich bane really feels like a necessary early item for me. TOG is also another item I think is needed early. with the low cool down on his Ult you will have that puppy maxed in no time and the mana increase plus damage AP from the AAS is essential I then finish out a Athena's Unholy Grail if I have time. all in all this guide has been of great benefit and I have run many successful test games with it. Time to try PVP.


Thanks for the vote! I'll admit this build is a little tricky if you make mistakes or aren't too experienced with Kassadin. Double RoA helps in that aspect but you lose damage output. It's a trade off.

Great guide, 1+, but here is some thing i want you to consider for coding. [ icon = kassadin size=60 ],
will yeild a good looking , and i thought that might look good as it stands our more.
i saw you use it in your items section, but its kinda hard to find stuff in the match ups section and other places when i need to look at soemthing right before a game, just a suggestion :)


Ok thank you. i was actually wondering if they were too small.

What the point of building so much mana? Only reason I find is for stacking riftwalk and it's kinda useless since fix of stack/ap scale ratio. Perhaps mana shield from embrace is fine for survival purpose but rushing archangel will cripple your ap and burst. And well, perhaps i'm dummy, but how Kassadin supposed to charge tear? He lacks cheap or low-cd skills that do the trick. Why so much headache instead of just building RoA which gives sufficient mana for using his skills smartly and also load of desperately needed hp and ap.


When you say "...RoA which gives sufficient mana for using his skills smartly" you're acknowledging Kassadin is limited by his mana pool.

I don't know where you got the information that Kassadin's Riftwalk isn't worth stacking. They may have changed the ratio but it still has the highest potential damage. But that's besides the point. Riftwalk is his utility/logistics making it his most important spell. Without Riftwalk Kassadin becomes useless. You end up saving a lot more Health by dodging spells with Riftwalk than what RoA gives you. No matter what way look at it you have to stack Riftwalk to be effective with Kassadin!

As for Ability power archangel's gives more ability power than rod of ages right off the bat. By the time you buy archangle's Kassadin will have about 1000 mana which brings archangel's to 80 AP. At that point RoA will give 60.

Charging stacks for Tear?? That is a silly question. Nether Blade costs 25 mana. It seems like your pretty new to Kassadin otherwise you would know that or you just didn't read my guide. I thoroughly evaluated each of the subjects you're asking about in great detail.

And btw, my second build starts off with RoA. It builds health so that's why it's call 'Constition'. I really insist that you do more than skim a build when you vote/comment cause you're obviously missing a lot of valuable information.
