Dominate the game with Kassadin

By vaske_lol

Combos are pretty straightforward, but some special ones are:

Fast burst combo (Q E R W):

Poke combo (Q E - watch out not to push the wave!):

Flash + R vs R + Flash:

Poke + retreat (Q + R back; Q + E + R back):

Surprise E flash:

Items Back to Top
Allows you to make make mistakes and go for greedy plays and not be punished for it. Great item overall.
Upgrade against swain/soraka etc. if your team doesen't have a good way to apply healing reduction. Typically a good item to pick up if you don't opt for Rod of Ages.
If you don't need the healing debuff from Morellonomicon but need tankiness, a good option is sitting on an Oblivion Orb for the magic penetration and HP.
Rule of thumb - If enemy team averages over 90 mr, Void Staff is worth getting. If you see enemies are sitting on MR components (e.g. Null-Magic Mantle or a Hexdrinker) they will most likely upgrade them. In this case, it is absolutely worth getting Void Staff. If your team mostly has magic damage, this is a great option so it is harder for the enemy team to itemize against you.
This item is pure damage. Getting Rabadon after a defensive item like Zhonya's is a massive powerspike for Kassadin. Good survivability combined with insane amounts of pure damage is the key to winning the game. Usually, you should aim to finish Rabadon around the same time as you hit level 16 and surprise the enemy team with your massive burst damage.
