Hey Guys :)
Welcome to my new 3 Kennen Builds!
A lot of people just told me their ideas of playing Kennen and everyone thinks his way is superior than the others ;) So I collected ideas and created these 4 Guides.
Summoner Spells are no must, choose what you like :)
I used AS-Kennen myself, but since his AP-Ratios got that huge buff (Mobafire hasn't added them yet) i kinda had to add an Ap-Build :P
NEWI added another 2 Kennens, just to show his awesomeness because he can be played in sooo many ways. My Items are no must, you can always add your own ideas (3rd Build for example :)) but i posted the 4 most often ways of playing him.
+4 AP Based skills
+good survivability (Rylais,M-Res,Zhonyas)
-W-passive seldom used
-seldom more than 2 stuns in a 1on1
If u dont like Mejais, Haunting Guiseadds additional HP/Ap/MPen :)
First of all, here you can add your own ideas, if you like AP more, buy AP. If you like more AD or AS, just try it.
These Items makes Kennen being a good Allrounder, I prefer this Build.
+AS for W-Passive
+AP for SkillDamage
+AD for W-passive
+/-hardest to play imo, but a good compromise between the other Kennens
+/-of course he cant just use abilities or just autohit, not as good as the others in each category (DPS-Kennen has more DPS, AP more AP , AS more AS )
no real cons
Risky, but fun (: would add great AD und AP... but its just optional^_^
(Reason for Sorcerer Shoes: Abilities (of course) and Bloodrazor and SotD are effected by Magic Res/Pen)
+TONS of stuns
+High Armor Pen
+Huge Magic Damage from Items
+Higher AS than DPS-Kennen, cheaper Items, but not as much Damage
-same cons like DPS-Kennen
-even more squishy (maybe get a HP-item :P)
I prefer Cleanse and Flash!
are also no bad choice, especially after the cleanse nerf ._.
About Armor/Magic Penetrations:
AP | -huge Flat Magic Pen.
Hybrid | -"Open"-Item Build
AS | -huge Flat Armor Pen.

(Old Guide, ill update later...)
Go mid or get a solo lane while someone is jungling.
Throw your shuriken whenever possible (Q-skill) , of course.
If the enemy is smart and stands behind creeps (or you just fail at aiming) prepare your 5th attack, auto-attack the enemy, press W... and its going to hurt.
always press W after your shuriken hit!!!!
always be careful with Lightning Rush!
Mid and Late Game:
Be careful, use your Brain! and GG
Kennen can stun the whole enemy team...
it can be useful in team fights
but it can also be your death when rushing through a whole team
Description will be updated regularly!
No minus without comments and constructive criticism please
