Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Im Lorentz, and i give unto you my accumulated knowledge of jingling the jangles as Kayle, and also solo top i guess.
I is a europeen with a thousand thousand games of Kayle.
I play hurr as a bruiser with AD items or a ranged carry usually.
If you play support Kayle you hate life and you are probably a tramp living in a bin eating cartoon fish skeletons.
GETS ALL DA ATTACK SPEEDS
You want AS to jingle jangle, kayles base AS is low and bad, AS runes make up for that so she can jingle the jangles a little quicker and rustle more jimmies.
Are you living under a rock?
still want attack speeds, but you can put up with some MR/level, just in case a nasty wizard wants to rustle your jimmies.
ooooookay itemses start with
Boots of Speed and 3* Health Potion
This gives decent mobility and sustain, boots are all around good. and potions are cheap.
Then get Berserker's Greaves and maybe a few more pots
You get zerks first to combat kayles low attack speed, also they make your ganks harder since you should be able to get them while most laners just have ****ty tier 1 boots.
Follow up with Wriggle's Lantern
free wards and perfect stats is gud, dont hate.
Then onto Phage
It slows ****, you're no longer totally reliant on red.
Then get Wit's End
Slap harder and more often, and get a wee bit of MR
i'd probably go for Trinity Force
a lot of burst through sheen, sustained damage with the other two and an all around great item.
Then pile on the damage with The Black Cleaver
your passive is ****, this gives you what it wishes it could.
Add to the beef with an item like Guardian Angel
You have decent health from your fairly high base and trinity force, so this should round out resistances.
Sell Wriggle's Lantern for The Bloodthirster
Its a natural upgrade, you wont need the armour any more and the AD and lifesteal on BT is simply better.
Overall this build focuses on damage sustain and burst, perfect for jungling imo due to maximised gank potential without sacrificing clear times, the trade is a bit of late game damage.
Items (SEWLO TAWP)
You can start with
Boots of Speed and pots,
or Doran's Blade
or Cloth Armor and 5 pots
or whatever is best for the lane you're in, you should probably know how to decide but if you dont, just go boots.
Get either Wriggle's Lantern or 2* Doran's Blade depending if the person can nuke you hard or not, (if they can get the blades, moar health, though if you went clothpots get the lantern)
Now we're in lane, so the emphasis on Trinity Force is lower, you can still get it yeah but it's more an early game option and i prefer late game when i lane.
So to that end my next item would usually be B. F. Sword and Zeal if i didn't get wriggles I'll get Vampiric Scepter as well
then onto Infinity Edge and Phantom Dancer
After this lot i'd go for some hard sustain in the form of The Bloodthirster or some Arpen and damage from The Black Cleaver if i have wriggles.
Late game defensive items are the usual suspects, Guardian Angel Banshee's Veil Quicksilver Sash
You wanna max E for clear speed, W for sustain and ganks and Q can stay at rank 1 till later cause the slow is decent enough at rank 1
max Q for the relatively cheap harass, use E to farm if zoned and to punish the enemies and zone them back, maxing E pushes a bit too hard imo, same problem as Phoenix Udyr,
Meh, you have Q to slow them and R to reduce their damage, you dont need this.
I have no ****ing idea, i dont play glorified ARAM
Its ok but you have W for MS and teh usual problem with flash being better generally.
I guess if you were playing a bot lane kayle with a support (not as a support though) You could do this, but i dont know for sure.
Core to jungling, without it all your buffs are belong to the enemy team.
Noob trap, gives small amounts of ****ty stats.
Legit choice for solo top i guess, take it if you want
I like cleanse, but it's not meant for Kayle, she's tough enough to survive a CC.
Surely you jest sir.
Good choice for solo top, my personal preference for sure.
Meh, like i say, not a support
Always and forever <333333333333333333333
Jungle Kayle route:
Wolves, get mid to damage them
Blue, get mid to pull and maybe damage a bit
Wraithes, YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN SON
Wolves, Back with a vengeance
Red, Lizard killed my dog, get the bastard back.
if no, then go to mini golems,
if yes and you fail, get whatever's closest
If yes and you succeed, go back and buy stuff
Then jingle jangle as normal, ganking as often as you think you can get away with.
Solo top stuffs
Throw Q about a bit use E to punish them for thinking they can kill your precious minions and sustain with W, it's pretty self explanatory.
