Introduction

I main Kennen, and used to build him pure ap, however in team fights he would die very quickly. One day I decided why not get some hp and armor, and how does one go about doing that? ATMOGS. Kennen plays very well as an Ad/Ap hybrid. While your waiting for your cooldowns your normal strike gets about a 70 atk boost, which is very usful after you have stunned someone.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
good damage early game
good AD and AP
3k+ health (nearly 4k if you get crystal sceptor instead of void staff
can take damage

Cons:
He's squishy until you get warmogs and atma's
you lose quite a bit of ability power by getting atmogs
Your ultimate get's a harsh damage drop by not building full ap

Items

I start my build by getting Dorans right, good health and ap altogether, you sell it later to help buy whatever item is needed (I almost always end up trading it in to finish rabadons death cap). Then i get the boots like usuall into a rabadons. At this point, unless you've been heavily fed, your probably lvl 11. At this lvl team fights begin to occur, so I save up for warmogs than an atma's Impalor which gives you good life, defence, and a nice attack boost. Depending on who's on the other team you'll have to make the choise weather to get a void staff or a crystal sceptor, void staff if the team is tanky, and sceptor if you need more damage and health. Finally I end the build with the hourglass. It's good in teamfights walk into the middle, activate ulti use the hourglass and people begin to get punished. Then you use your e skill to either get out or continue with damage. It gives a nice ability power boost of 100, while giving you more defence. Altogether it works for me.

Creeping

Kennen is a very good creep killing once you get rabadons death cap. using your e skill to zip past creeps and then w to finish them off, it's a good way to get money to buy your items if your having a difficult time killing champs
