Skill Explanation!





Mark of the storm: // Kennen's abilities add Marks of the Storm to opponents which last for 8 seconds. An opponent is stunned for 1 second upon receiving 3 Marks of the Storm. Also, Kennen receives 25 energy. The stun has a diminished effect if applied more than once within 7 seconds.




Thundering shuriken: // Kennen throws a fast moving shuriken towards a location, dealing 75 / 115 / 155 / 195 / 235 (+75% of ability power) magic damage and adding a Mark of the Storm to any opponent that it hits.
Tips and Tricks
  • // Use this to harras enemy or lasthit creeps.
  • // Try to hit 3 shurikens in a row to stun the enemy.
  • // Max this second after your "W".


Electrical Surge: // Passive: Every 5 attacks, Kennen deals magic damage equal to 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 % of his attack damage and adds a Mark of the Storm to his target.

Active: Surges electricity through all nearby targets afflicted by Mark of the Storm, dealing 65 / 95 / 125 / 155 / 185 (+55% of ability power) magic damage and adding another mark.
Tips and Tricks
  • // Use "Q" and this to harras the enemy.
  • // U can use this for lasthitting.
  • // Max this first so you get the most damage


Lightning rush: // Kennen transforms into a ball of electricity for up for 3 seconds. While in this state Kennen gains 230 movement speed and ignores unit collisions. Any enemies he passes through take magic damage and have a Mark of the Storm applied to them, dealing half damage to minions. Kennen also gains 40 energy from the first enemy he hits. Kennen cannot use basic attacks while Lightning Rush is active.
Additionally, for 4 seconds Kennen's armor and magic resistance are increased. While Lightning Rush is active, Kennen can activate it again to cancel the first part of the ability.

Tips and Tricks
  • // Use this to dodge skillshots.
  • // Re-activate the ability to just gain the stat boosts.
  • // use this to farm. run trough minions and use "W".


Slicing maelstrom: // ACTIVE: Kennen summons a magical storm around himself that zaps a random enemy champion within range every fraction of a second, dealing magic damage and applying a Mark of the Storm. The storm hits several times, increasing with level, and cannot hit the same target more than 3 times.

Tips and Tricks
  • // Amazing teamfigth ultimate. combine this with amumu or sona.
  • // Let the three Mark of the storms hit and then use your "W"
  • // You can get early kills with your full combo.

Tactics!



Teamfights


CHAMPION // First you should stay at the back and poke em with your "Q". when your innitiator like (jarvan,thresh,galio,amumu,etc) Then you should flash or "E" in and then use your ultimate. When you use your ultimate wait about 1.5 to 2 seconds and then use your "W" to deal TONS OF DAMAGE!
