Hello xMavis!
Kai'sa is one wonderfull champ that makes everyone happy (the side of your team of course), and this guide for Kai'sa is so great that i have 80% winrate with it i would recommend this guide to anyone its great for new players who wants to try it out.
xMavis | December 1, 2018 4:08am

Hello xMavis,
I just stumbled across your guide today and as a player who completely loves Kai'Sa, this is a great guide! :)

The only thing that i think you could make even better is the chapter's section because it is a bit messy, this guide right here will help you fix those chapter's so that they will look even better! The guide will help you on how to use BBCodes here on Mobafire! :D

Cheers, Fruxo

Hey xmavis,
I like your guide and that you're really explaining the most important things you should know about Kai'Sa. :] Well done.
However, I think you could improve your guide with the aid of some BB Codes. If you need help, you can check out this guide. Also, please add a threat and synergy section. (: It helps people understand where Kai'Sa is at at the moment.
But besides that you're on a pretty, pretty good track. Keep up your good work!
Cheers, Wicked Cherry.

Hey man Ty a lot. I am a very lazy person, there will be no bb codes i think. Maybe ill change my mind, but i just dont want to put in the work(i rather use the time to play league lol :D)

That's okay too. But I thought it might add some readability to your guide. Like when you see a bulk of text you're kinda thrown off and don't want to read all of it even thought you will be missing valuable information. So adding some pictures would already be some kind of improvement. :)

Hi, I really enjoy your guide it won me some games with kai'sa (the build), but wouldn't it be better if you used celerity instead of manaflow band. Your E gives you speed.
xMavis | August 30, 2018 6:22am
Hey man! Thank you for trying my build. Celerity got nerved pretty hard and only gives you 6% AD conversion now. E gives you Movementspeed, but you can only use that extra Movementspeed, for 1 Autoattack and its a really small boost due to the nerfs. The reason Kai'Sa is good, is because she is pretty strong in lane AND teamfights. If you go manaflowband you make sure, you can push more than the enemy ADC and you can stay in lane much longer. This results in easier scuttle controll and early Drakes. Later you wont go OOM and can spam your abilities. I would only go Celerity, if you have an good zilean support or an other Champion with a big Movementspeed Buff, but even then im not sure if celerity is supperior to manaflowband.

Rage blade has one and only use .. when u get a hard opponent stacked by tones of armor as leona shen garen orn tahm so u can apply kai sai s passive in a succeful way ... and none will need more then FireCanon as a kai sai cuz any way u have a pretty close range even less then jinx s none - rocket shots .. this guide is unhelpful to new players any way cuz u cant evzn guide the right order to buy items
xMavis | August 25, 2018 11:31am
Hey Man! Thank you for your feedback. The purpose of Rageblade in this build has 3 Parts:
1st Part - Damage: Make sure you get that scaling Item relatively early, since Rageblade enhances your AD and Attackspeed, if stacked(passive also scales with AD). It offers you a good transition into Mid-Lategame and the enhancement of the passive.

2nd Part - Objective Controll: With Rageblade you get the Drakes and Heralds/Barons much faster. As you probably know, only a few seconds can make a big difference.

3rd Part - Versatility in my Build: With Rageblade you can make sure you fit in different team compositions. In some compositions you get a good peel, so you can make a good use of Rageblade, because your team can assist you while you getting the Rageblade stacks and maximize your Damage( for example with a Shen, Maokai or Braum). But in some teamcomps and expecially low elo, you wont get a good peel, so you will have to get the stacks by yourself. Then the Burst part of this build has its purpose, but Rageblade is still needed, because of the Objective controll and the possible Damage outcome, if you can manage to get the Rageblade stacks.

If RFC works for you, just get it. I think it isnt that strong on Kai'Sa, because you just get a bigger range for 1 Autoattack but cant cast Q at the same time(range of Q is shorter), and you will have to eather follow up with your low range or you have to kite with your low range after. It can make a difference sometimes tho, but I would get RFC on Champions with already good range, to enhance the advantages and use the synergies of this Champions rather than only trying to balance the weaknesses. RFC is also perfect for Champions like Cait(Low all-in and Dueling potential, but a good Controll, good range & Traps). But Kai'Sa is quite an opposite of Cait and very unique -> Low range, but a good duelist with heavy damage. -> So: Stattik Shiv will give her some extra dueling power(synergy with Stormrazor is very strong)and pushing power
-> you become a bigger threat, because if you can hit a carry, you will hit him like a truck and you will have good chances to 1 shot him( for me its kinda more worth than RFC). You also get Stattikz passive while moving and Kai'Sa is a very mobile Champion, so you will get the Passive from Stattik Shiv very often(Synergy with the Champion and Stormrazor).

This is a Mini Guide, if you are a new player, I recommend you Vapora's Guide. My Guide describes my build and runes and is for people, who already can play ADC and ADC Mains.
I will add some new content for Laning, Teamfighting and Win-conditions and other advanced stuff in the next month tho.
Dont understand your claim of itemization Orders. The Orders to buy the items are shown in my guide its: Stormrazor -> boots -> Rageblade -> Stattik shiv -> Infinity Edge and then Black cleaver or a situational item.

Hi man! First of all thank you for your guide. Kaisa is now my main adc.
I have a question, maybe you can help me.
I just played a game vs a top garen, who went tank and i could just not kill him. We ended up losing the game.
What items would you recommend in this situation? thank you
xMavis | August 22, 2018 4:14am
Hi mate! if he stacks HP and armor u go Black cleaver Last item and you can get a bork instead of Guinsoos Rageblade. Garen is really strong at the moment so there is not that much you can do against him, his W, if used correctly is OP.
HagoK9 | August 9, 2018 1:46am
A build parece ser bom vou testar, mais sera que tem como vc postar a runas que vc usa...
CanUtility (1) | August 5, 2018 4:45pm
It seems strange to build Stormrazor and Guinsoo's Rageblade, since these items kind of have the opposite purpose. However I agree, that this is the best way to play AD Kai'Sa. The other item options are just kind of weak, I hope Riot buffs them :)

Nice guide btw :)
xMavis | August 6, 2018 6:06am
Thx man, yeah we share the same opinion. They are opposites, but Kai'Sa is a very special Markswoman. These 2 items fit into her kit just too good, to not get them. See you in the rift.
GoIden (2) | June 26, 2018 2:03pm
thank you for sharing your owne build, its not bad , obviously correct.
xMavis | June 26, 2018 2:55pm
you welcome mate! Yeah I like it a lot, but needed some games to get used to the Stormrazor and new Essence Reaver.
hrama (10) | June 22, 2018 9:52am

xMavis | June 22, 2018 11:58am
