No Serious Explanation Needed

I've set this Kayle Build up for myself and perhaps others who would like a nice item build. It works extremely well as soon as you get the Chalice of Harmony. After that, it's a game of skill and teamwork.

As soon as you get Nashor's Tooth, you'll have a serious boost in how constant you can keep your Righteous Fury, whilst making it more powerfull by Attack Speed and Ability Power.

Wit's End is my favourite Item, and it's perfect for Kayle. One could even consider Malady as an item, but considering the amount of AP the build has early game, it would be a less convinient item than Wit's End to get.

This build is concentrated on Ability Power, Mana Regen and Cooldown Reduction. There's also a considerable amount of Magic Resist included to help sustain against most enemy mids. This will even help against some nasty Top Laners whom Kayle is good against, like Teemo and Singed. So that's a valuable point as well.

One last advantage of this Kayle build is that as soon as you get your Chalice of Harmony, the jungler doesn't really need to give you his Blue buff, it would help with the Cooldown Reduction, and you could start spamming even crazier, but it's unnecessary and it can be used to help other lanes or the jungler himself.

Consider asking for the Red Buff instead, to help with slowing your enemies down to a point where you can easily slaughter them.

For guides on actually playing Kayle and Tips and Tricks, I would suggest Ciderhelm's in-depth champion guides on Youtube, or the Riot Games Inc. Champion Spotlight for Kayle itself.

Thx for reading and I hope to see you on the Fields of Justice,

Godlike Kayle Explained

This is the way I build my Kayle if I have all the gold I can get, the slow applies to both Kayle's Q and every attack she lands whilst E is active, Liandry's Torment adds more health, magic pen. and does 10% of the target's current health with each E strike, because of the RCS Slow. Aside from that, you have an almost infinite amount of mana because of athene's unholy grail, and you have a total of 40% cooldown reduction, allowing infinite E usage and very frequent and very strong Pokes with Q and heals with W, it also allows preventing many deaths as your Ult is up every 36 seconds.

This build makes Kayle the strongest Chaser, Tank-destroyer and Life-saver. It is very very pleasing to play with this buid. As the Rush items and masteries I use allow for a very strong Early and Mid game, whilst adding RCS and LT makes your Late game Kayle absolutely horrifying.

Do note that going Hextech Gunblade and Blade of the Ruined king is still cool.

You could even replace Rabadon's Deathcap with the Blade of the Ruined King to deal 15% of any target's current health in damage. Which is a nightmare for tanks, but the deathcap is just too powerfull and significant for Kayle to ignore.
