[10.11] Poke-Mage Kai'Sa Better Than Vel'Koz

By JustQ
Play Style
unlike the traditional Kai'sa, u are looking to stay in the backline chunking enemies with W stay safe with ur E and go in with ur R and Q to finish enemies off the play style can be similar to a Nidalee where u constantly throw out long range projectiles and pounce in once u hit an enemy what works even better is if u have allies that can cc opponents for u allowing u to R in for the finish

i often catch enemies canoning their way to the jungle or to objectives this guarantees your W lands and then u can unleash your full combo they will disappear in a blink of an eye

just remember you are not invincible u have to play safe since getting caught out by any one will blow u up instantly u can use ur E to distance urself so that you can use W safely eventually u will land a couple of shots and burst them instantly
Skill Order
For skill order u want to take Q level 1 but max W first it’s your waveclear and primary trading tool during early game since minions will usually block ur W void seeker unless u go for some flashy play or the enemy mispositions max Q seccond and E last while putting a point into ur ult whenever possible

u can also take E level 2 if u feel like you can chase the enemy down for a heavy trade without taking too much damage in return

there is not that much to ap Kaisa Combos ur main combo will be Q+W try to get some AAs in the Combo for more damage example AA Q+W AA


if flash is used after casting W u will fire ur W from the point u flashed to this is extreamly usefull if u have to get around minions or other enemy champions


another way to land W is by casting it while using ur R if u do so your W will fire right after u reach the enemy
Item Set
i made an item set so u can just copy and paste it into ur game:

now paste the text below :

{"title":"[10.11] Poke-Mage Kai'Sa Better Than Vel'Koz","associatedMaps":[],"associatedChampions":[145],"blocks":[{"items":[{"id":"1056","count":1},{"id":"2003","count":1}],"type":"START"},{"items":[{"id":"3802","count":1},{"id":"1026","count":1},{"id":"1082","count":1},{"id":"2055","count":1}],"type":"FIRST BACKS"},{"items":[{"id":"3285","count":1},{"id":"3020","count":1},{"id":"3006","count":1}],"type":"LUDENS AND BOOTS"},{"items":[{"id":"3070","count":1},{"id":"3089","count":1}],"type":"THEN"},{"items":[{"id":"3003","count":1},{"id":"3004","count":1},{"id":"3115","count":1},{"id":"3135","count":1},{"id":"2055","count":1}],"type":"STANDART ITEMS"},{"items":[{"id":"3157","count":1},{"id":"3041","count":1},{"id":"3165","count":1},{"id":"3100","count":1},{"id":"3102","count":1},{"id":"3907","count":1}],"type":"SITUATIONAL ITEMS"},{"items":[{"id":"2055","count":1},{"id":"3364","count":1},{"id":"2139","count":1}],"type":"EXTRA ITEMS"}]}
general information
now i will give u some general information about kaisa
    u can position urself so that ur Q icathian rain only hits one minion but kills it immediately it helps get waves pushing cannon minions need to be missing some hp to die from Q icathian rain this trick + her autoattacks give Kai'Sa pretty good early pushing/waveclear ability.t

    ur Q icathian rain missiles do double damage to minions below 35% health make use of this by autoattacking multiple minions and Q’ing at the end to execute them

    try to stand in a position where if the enemy walks up they will tank more Q missiles since less minions are in range

    ur W void seeker will continue to cast even when CC’ed the W void seeker animation gets cancelled when you get cc’ed as well making it harder for the enemy to notice ur casting it

    if running ignite try to ignite early so that ur passive execute will do more damage

    after you trade with someone u can back off a bit and if they walk back up while still having 2 or 3 passive stacks u can surprise them with a W+flash or W+flash+AA

    ur W Void Seeker hitbox is very big so u can even hit someone who’s hiding in a minion wave if u W+flash right next to or on top of them

    u can hide ur W void seeker by aiming it through walls

    ur W void seeker has 3000 range so make use of it

    try to aim ur W void seeker at enemies that are (or going to be) cc’ed as they won’t be able to dodge.

    use ur R killer Instinct to escape over walls
even tho i made this guide on how i play Kaisa i startet playing her bc of another guide the guide really helped me start out and after a while i made my own kaisa midlane playstyle the guide i am talking about is from SnipyOCE he has a youtube channel with combo guide montages and gameplay in general this is a link to his kaisa guide: i really reccomand u to check it out even tho its not exactly played like my playsyle its very simmilar in terms of combos and its easier to go his build if you go from adc kaisa to midlane kaisa really just check him out i whould never have played ap kaisa if i whouldnt have found his guide
