Introduction

Hi My Name is is Excalibur and I main the top lane :P
This guide is my first guide and its about how to play Solo Top Kennen.
Any criticism would be helpful :)


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros:
Nice Stun
Great teamfighting from ult
Q gives Great Poke
RANGED
Doesnt use Mana
HES A GODDAM NINJA HAMSTER
Cons:
Fairly Squishy
Easily Focused


Guide Top

Spells

I find Ignite Flash to be best becuase of the fact that I find these spells to get me an early lv 2 or 3 kill.
Other Viable Spells:
Teleport
This spell allows you to get back to lane right after going back very useful
Exhaust
Exhaust during ult to keep the enemy in range
Ghost
Same Reason as Exhaust


Guide Top

Runes

You take AD Quints and Marks for stronger early game AA damage as thats your main source of
DMG early game. You take armor seals for when the enemy laner tries to retaliate. MR/Level and flat MR glyphs are my personal choice.


Guide Top

Masteries

21-9-0 Is the only possibly viable option for Kennen.

Items

You start off grabbing a Doran's blade for sustain and to make your AA's hurt more. 2nd back I recommend grabbing either 1 Dorans a ward and some pots, 2 Doran's or boots and a Doran's, it all depends on how much gold you have. After that you want to build your first Core Item. You have 2 Choices Depending on your lane opponent and their jungler.
1)Zhonya's VS AD
2)Abyssal Scepter Vs. AP
Most of the time you will end up buying a Zhonya's but there are occasions you won't.
After That you will want to immediately buy Sorc's Shoes. After That buy the core item you did not purchase earlier. After That buy a void staff for M Resist shred during team fights. After that purchase a Rylai's for the slow and health and finish it off with a Rabadon's for AP.
NOTE:You really can buy in whatever order you like but this is my personal order.

Skill Sequence

Max W first for the passive to make your AA's hurt more and also for the active damage. After that max Q for stronger Poke then Max E Last.


Guide Top

Early Game

Harass Enemy with AA's when they go for CS and just play safe and farm.


Guide Top

Mid Game

At this point your AA's dont do much and your spells do almost all your damage. Try to go for dragons as your ult is great for dragon fights. Try to roam mid with your ultimate. Ask jungler to help push and take tower.


Guide Top

Late Game

Late Game your goal is to win team fights. Follow up your junglers initiate with Flash-Ult-Zhonya's-W and help your team clean up. If they initiate on you Ult to stun as many as you can. Kennen is very strong in Baron fights becuase his ultimate takes up most of the pit.
After winning team fights peel off to top or bot lane and push as hard as you can. If you lose a teamfight (assuming your alive) than help to defend your turrets.
