1. Introduction

First of all let me stress that this is not the definitive build for Kayle. I will guarantee however that playing Kayle will be a lot of fun as long as you follow this build.

2. Runes

This setup tries to ease the early game mana worries. The real investment however is in late game cooldown reduction. Which will allow for that cherished Divine Blessing spamming.

3. Items

I personally begin with the Mana manipulator as I usually take a dual-lane. To make sure I don't lag behind itemwise during mid-game I take Philosophers stone second. Sometimes I manage to get an early gank and Philosophers stone turns out to be unnecessary. I'd advise to take it just to be sure. As movement speed increases your survivability greatly I get Ionian Boots of Lucdity as soon as I got the gold. The laning phase should be over by now which calls for some extra firepower. I choose Nashor's Tooth for this and advise you to start building it through Fiendish Codex. Against popular opinion I usually do choose Trinity Force and during building prioritize Phage and then Zeal. Most normal games will be over by now. If not, expand with Soul Shroud or Malady.

4. General tips

In your first levels you will be slightly squishy. Try not to hard to get a kill, if you harass your opponents enough you'll walk over their dead bodies to your hearts content later in the game.

A good goal is to raze their outer tower before level 9.

Heal your lane partner first. They will rely on you and might do something silly, you should be prepared.

You will push like a champ late-game. Use Righteous Fury and blast away.

The general order when ganking is: Devine Blesssing to catch up. Slow with Reckoning. Righteous Fury to bring 'm down.
To make sure you stay within striking distance use Walk -> Attack -> Walk -> Attack.
Use Intervention if the target tries to hide in a tower. Remember that it has been nerfed and 3 seconds is over before you know it.

Kayle is a viable choice to gank with, but her true purpose is preventing your allies from getting killed. Please always have your priorities straight.

5. Who are you?

Does that really matter? I don't want to brag, you should always judge a build by it's actual contents.
