A word to the start
THIS IS MY FIRST GUIDE:
and i must first apologize for the less amount of pictures and maybe a bit for my english.
I hope you still like the guide and i promise i will soon change it,which means that i show more pictures and proves,but at the moment my computer has a problem it has to be fixed but i dont know why i just wanted to make a guide to show how great AD Kayle is.
Mobafire is great btw.
In a world far away where an ancient war still rages, Kayle was a great hero - the strongest of an immortal race committed to destroying evil wherever it could be found. For ten thousand years, Kayle fought tirelessly for her people, wielding her flaming sword forged before time itself. She shielded her delicate features beneath her enchanted armor, the sole remaining masterpiece of an extinct race of craftsmen. Though a beautiful, striking creature, Kayle, now as then, avoids showing her face; war has taken a terrible toll upon her spirit. In her quest for victory, she sometimes would try to lift the wicked up from their morass of evil, but more than often she instead purged those she herself deemed beyond redemption. To Kayle, justice can so often be an ugly thing.
Ten years ago, Kayle's war against evil was nearly won... until her rebellious sister Morgana, a pariah amongst their people, suddenly gained powerful new allies: magicians of a hitherto unknown world called Runeterra. Morgana traded servitude to a number of the summoners in Runeterra's League of Legends for powerful new abilities that, if mastered, threatened to bring Kayle and her people to their knees. To save her world, Kayle had no choice but to make a pact with the League herself. She approached the leader of the League, High Counselor Reginald Ashram, with a deal of her own. In exchange for a thousand years of Kayle's service, Ashram halted all League interference on Kayle's world. With Ashram's disappearance five years ago, Kayle has new causes on Valoran: find out who or what caused Ashram to disappear, defeat her sister Morgana upon the Fields of Justice, and bring her own brand of justice to the League of Legends.
''In the League of Legends, Justice comes on swift wings.''
Most people really underestimate Kayle.
It is really hard for you to talk to others when they hear that you want to be solo Top with Kayle and not even AP or Hybrid built.
But after 15 minutes they all congratulate you and just say how owerpowerded AD Kayle is.
Your focus is at your e attack called Righteous Fury. When you activate it you get a nice range vs your opponents and often at solo top you dont fight vs champs who are solo top champs,even though they have skills that are ranged,for instance the stun of Sion or Gankplank´s shot.
Try to push your opponent often with an activated e.If you see he is running from you press q and activate your Reckoning,it will slow down your enemy and Righteous Fury will make even longer,which means more^^ Damage. The w spell is when you play Kayle as an AD Kayle not so strong but still it is very useful because who ever gets the heal of Kayle´s Divine Blessing will get movement speed for 3 seconds,very good to chase champions or escape from them.
The Ulti is the reason why Kayle can win even a 1on5 if you time it right.
Intervention can be cast on yourself and to your teammates !!!never forget this.
When cast you are immun to any dmg in the game and i experienced too often that this 3 seconds can decide a teamfight.
The passiv:Holy Fervor - When Kayle attacks a champion, the target loses 3% Armor and Magic Resistance for 5 seconds. This effect stacks up to 5 times;makes Kayle in my opinion one of the best solo Tops ever.
Pro and Cons
+The passiv in combination with Madreds is very good also vs very tanky champs
+ Righteous Fury gives range
+Kayle´s w gives movement speed to chase or escape easily
+Reckoning slows down enemies
+you kill minions and towers very fast,thanks to your built and your Righteous Fury
+the ulti is one of the best teamfight ultis and will save your life very often
+Kayle is a champ that can make Pentakills and keep his mates alive,thumps up !
-long cooldown at e and in my opinion a bit too long at q
-Kayle is very squishy
-in early game you get high mana problems;you can buy mana pots,but that of course costs gold
-very depended at Righteous Fury;if this is at cooldown you need good movement and AD runes.
I take Ignite because it deals rather good damage to your enemy and halfs his heal.
And flash is good to escape;it is very useful in early and mid games when you have low mana or you need to chase someone but your Righteous Fury is at cooldown then you may use flash.
I also recomend to take spells like exhaust,which slows down enemies or you take Ghost by yourself.
If you sometimes think you need to make backdoor pushes to help your team and you will see with Kayle as AD you make very fast damage at towers you should take Teleport.
Well dont take Heal it is wasted spell for a solo Top and smite is just for junglers,surge is good for Kayle if you are AP or Hybrid but not as an AD.
Farming with Kayle is very nice.
Thanks to Righteous Fury you are in Range to your enemy champion and of course to your enemy minions.
Kayle is even very strong vs. Superminions.
Dont waste spells like Reckoning or your ulti for minions but Righteous Fury is very strong and helpful to farm.
I often have the most minions in a game farmed;even more than the carry.
