Usual kled build and runes (PTA SECONDARY)
Threats & Synergies
Not broken anymore but still counters kled well. MORE IN THE HARDEST MATCHUPS SECTION.
Impossible to kill. Tiamat, bc and roam. He doesnt do damage but neither do you against him.
If you miss EQ, you will lose the lane. Not joking. He will run you down and either kill you or dismount you. MORE IN THE HARDEST MATCHUPS SECTION
His laning phase isnt that good so you can abuse him then. cancel his R with yours. MORE IN THE HARDEST MATCHUPS SECTION.
Does insane damage and is super tanky. can match your roams and is super easy to gank for.
Insanely tanky. Almost impossible to kill but he cant really kill you either. Watch out for his jungler.
Free lane tbh. Watch out for her stun and you should be fine.
Has decent damage and armor shred.If you ever get dismounted you basically die. Hexdrinker CAN help against him if you are not the villain. Garen always tries to trade level 1. This is your big chance to get his flash/kill him.
Reworked aatrox isnt that strong against kled in an all in cause he cant hit shit thanks to your E.Have fun stomping him
He completely shits on you early game. You can duel him with 6 items though. Bork and cleaver should do the trick. Try to farm this lane and avoid dismounting.
You lose level 1, but you win level 2,3,4 and 5. Whoever gets the first kill wins the lane. Exe calling not really necessary if you are a competent kled. You can deny his healing with your E and Q if he times his Q badly.
Better player wins. Try to dodge her tentacle with E. You can duel her easily if she misses her E. DO NOT FIGHT HER WHEN SHE ULTIES. Tiamat -> Exe calling
J4 has good damage, is tanky and he is easy to gank for. Watch out for his jg. You can follow his dash with your 2nd E. Not hard to beat solo
You cant match him early, mid or late. You can duel him though if he botches his E.
Snowball first 5 levels. 3 is the golden number. Thats the amount of kills you need to have to duel nasus after 6.
REALLY volatile lane. Rush tiamat, exe and call your jg for help. Hard to gank and easy to gank for thanks to his Axes and R which negates CC.
King of the top lane is hard for kled too. Try not to feed him and farm with your Q. Engage on him when he wastes any of his abilities. Tiamat -> exe calling -> tabi.
Cant kill him. He can kite you 24/7. DONT CHASE HIM! Repeat DONT CHASE HIM! Dont build against him. Just go your usual build and ignore him.
Tanky but easy. Dodge his Q with E and all in him.
Does insane damage, heals for so much and gets relatively tanky. Exe calling situational. Dodge his E and all in!
Can duel you at any point of the game. Has huge armor shred and heals for so much. Dont fight him in any situation if he has R available.
Pls. PLS. DONT GET DISMOUNTED. Dont let him flip you, dodge Q poke and poke him back. If he wastes W you can trade him. Cull is a good starter to buy. AFK farm. Urgot fucking shits on you.
One of kled hardest counters. Especially now when Conquerer is broken. Ask for jg. buy bramble. MORE IN THE HARDEST MATCHUPS SECTION.
Camille isnt really strong anymore. Still an annoying matchup. Watch out for the W poke, bait her E and kill her.
You cant really kill her when her W is up. She does insane damage with her Q so watch out for that.
Akali doesnt have true invis anymore. Free matchup. Dont get dismounted.
Farms from too far away. ROAM ROAM AND ROAM. Roam more. End pre 30.
Cant win you even if shes fed. Rush tiamat, Hex and you will be fine. She has the same problem ekko has fighting you. She can engage on you but cant escape from you. When she dashes to you, you are not trapped with her, SHES TRAPPED WITH YOU
Can cockblock you hard after level 6 but levels 1-5 are super easy. Same problem as diana. Ekko can go on you but he cant escape from you.
He cant E your Q if you hit it. Easy matchup. Tiamat, hex.
Q pokes you all the time but is super squishy. kill him once and you can snowball hard. If he takes resolve its a hard matchup.
Hard matchup. You can one shot him but he pokes you to death. Try not to get dismounted.
Extremely annoying and if played well he can fuck you BUT if you catch him with your E have fun having BBQ:d rat
New mordekaiser tough matchup. Watch out for his level 1 all in.
New pantheon slightly harder to beat than old one. Dont all in him before he wastes his E and watch out for his passive.
Perma poke but is squishy. Bait her E and oneshot her.
Hard to beat but not impossible. Has hard CC and an execute ability which cucks you. You can cancel Rivens 3rd Q with your CHAAAARGE!
Melts your face and is decently tanky if he goes resolve second and rushes Liandries, tabi.
Point and click hard CC, Perma pokes you, Gets movespeed and a shield from his passive. I would rather kill myself than play against this shitty fucking cancer champion.
Like wtf dude. Your invulnerability when skaarl dies negates a HUGE amount of his burst and now his combo is down.. Is he going to auto attack you to death now? Lol? When you engage on him your E and Q can reveal his stealth. Dont get caught dismounted since he instakills you then.
You cant kill a good teemo. Rush tiamat, hex.
Dont let him stack rage and you will be fine. Beats you mid and late game.
Good yasuo can kill you easily. He is unkillable after Pd, tabi. Even if you got a few kills.
Can poke you and can disengage with her R. All in if she wastes charm.
Squishy and no escapes. Easy. Watch out for her stun and you will be fine.
Pokes you hard and can disengage with his E,R and Q. If he wastes Q all in him.
Cancer. Dodge or swap lanes. He zones you with his soldiers and has a free kill if he reaches 6 before you. If you see his jungler coming mid, ult away or turn the fight by dodging azir R with yours.
Cancer. But squishy with no escapes. If he gets too close TAKE HIS LIFE. He outscales you hard so try to end pre 30.
Cancer. Dont ever fight her if she has R. Dodge Q and if you go in you have to all in. She chases you to narnia when you try to run away. HEXDRINKER
Relatively easy. pokes you hard. All in him when he wastes his dash. Try to match his package roams. They are super predictable.
Cant kill her. Try to roam. She outscales you super hard so end pre 30.
KASSAAWIIIIN. sike. beat the fuck out of him. He outscales super hard so end pre 30.
Easy matchup. All in her always when you have the chance. Leave lane if you manage to get dismounted.
Cry. She perma kites you after 6 and when you get on top of her she takes no damage thanks to her R
Dodge. you will never catch her. HEX FUCKING DRINKER.
Dodge root and all in. Extremely squishy. She cant ever match you so you can do anything you want to do with her ;]
Aids. But you can kill him if he doesnt have jg pressure. He has a bad dueling kit so abuse that. Try not to get caught Mid/late game by his R
Free. She pokes you alot but she cant do anything to you if you manage to get on top of her ;]
Dont get dismounted and avoid poke. HEXDRINKER. She can disengage with her E.
Perma pushes. qll in when she uses lots of ground and when her if she wastes W or E.
Free. Bait gold card and all in. You can dodge his gold card with a well timed R if you are greedy for the kill.
Dont get dismounted. Rush hexdrinker. Beat his ass. Nicely timed R can can dodge his stun. Stupid veigars will use their R on you when skaarl is low. Abuse a bad veigar. Outscales super fucking hard so end before 30.
Dodge his E and all in. Cancel his R with Q or R in fights. Outscales you so end pre 30.
Depends on how good the viktor is. HEXDRINKER. Outscales you super hard so try to end early.
Cancer BUT FREE. Cant pool when Q:d. all in early levels and dont let him scale. He cant match you early or late in a 1 v 1 situation. His teamfighting is amazing so try to get him to match your splitpush so your team gets a free win.
Useless. Beat him and his children.
Free. You reveal his stealth with your Q and E.
Decently hard. Pick your fights well and dont fight unmounted. Gl
Hecarim's passive and Kled's R have insane synergy. You just need to communicate with your Hec.
Kled is an initiator and a carry so Zilean R is a perfect ability to keep you going in a fight! Paired with GA and you have 3 lives.
Kled is an initiator and Galio follow initiation well with his R, providing damage, CC and keeping you alive longer! Nice synergy
Kayle's R and Kled's role combo well. Make sure to communicate with your Kayle.
OK synergy but needs communication to pull of Orianna R with your engage.
Going to be a FAST yi.
No ability synergy but your R gets Mordekaiser close to the enemy. which is never good for the enemy carry since Morde dmg is so high late.
You are an initiator so naturally Black shield will be for you.
Its so easy to CC the whole enemy team when a Rakan is running at the with 1k movement speed :D
Pyke can start cleaning up after your engage.
You can both drop tower aggro so dives past level 3 are SOO EASY.
Shields you with your engage. Needs Communication.
A fast singed...
Champion Build Guide
LISTEN TO THIS WHILE READING THIS MAJESTIC GUIDE!
-Extremely deadly combo throughout the game.
-Very oppressive in lane.
-Scales well into mid game.
-Good burst with 2 items.
-Very good roams.
-Massive Base hp.
-Can 1 v 2 top and jg.
-Extremely sticky and snowballs super hard.
-Kled is one of the best champions for towerdiving. If you have someone like kayn or elise who can drop tower aggro you can constantly dive your laner.
-Nice engage but horrible teamfight.
-Needs some kind of defensive items.
-Can get bullied by ranged matchups and tanks.
-Useless when behind.
-Half a champion when dismounted
-SKAARL IS A TRAITOR
-If you know you are about to dismount SAVE YOUR W until you do. You can get skaarl back faster with it.
-If you throw your Q out before you dismount it will stay on your target even though you dismount
-If you are gonna remount and you are 1 hp you can Q or flash to avoid taking damage while skaarl is running back to you
-You remount from 5 auto attacks and a full Q.
Ensures that they dont escape so you can STAB THEM WITH YOUR LONG AXE. Basically you just throw a tether onto someone and if they stay in the range you yank them back, do damage and slow them for a **** ton. If you have landed your yank the only way to get out is to run from the range indicator. Not even Alpha Strike/ Sanguine Pool can stop this ability from doing damage.
This is 80% of your damage. Its a simple 4 hit passive that does max hp damage with the last proc. nothing more to it
This is a simple dash. You dash to a direction... You get a second dash if you hit someone... SERIOUSLY HOVER YOUR ****ING MOUSE ONTO THE ABILITY AND READ IT YOURSELF.
The only thing interesting about this ability is that only the second dash can go through walls..............................................
This is your big **** ability. You go roam mid lane. Roam bot lane. ROAM TO THE ENEMY JUNGLE AND BEAT THE **** OUT OF THAT EVELYNN FOR TRESPASSING!. Gives you a shield and does mx hp to the first enemy hit. Damage and shield increase the longer you travel.
Here is an ability showcase if you need it.
You take this everygame. Nothing else comes close.
This is just frankly said ****. Gives you an "Energized" buff on your next auto attack after moving that heals you for a slight amount. Good on paper for sustaining laning phase but it doesnt work. Gives no dmg
I dont understand why you ever would take this. Gives you an attack speed buff after 1.5 sec in combat. Why the **** would you take this instead of conqueror or PTA? This is like taking lethal tempo on Draven . Why would you do that?
This is another great rune on kled! Take this against squishy top laners like Quinn, pantheon. My preference as of 8.23 ->!
Not optimal, but can be paired up with Deaths dance to create a small shield before engaging with your Chaaaaaaaarge!!!
This rune paires well with kleds all or nothing kit. Gives you back 13% of your missing hp after killing an enemy champion. Is very nice in close 1 v 2 situations.
Trash on kled. Gives you some of your R CD back and gives you mana after a kill. OMEGALUL
/ / These are all situational. Every one works well with kled. Choose according to the situation. Bloodline is REALLY situational but it can work against champions like teemo, kennen, jayce who are going to poke you to hell. Kled doesnt have any innate sustain so this could help you survive hard lanes easier.
Gives you more damage to low Hp enemies. This is what most kleds take. BUT YOU WONT BE TAKING IT CAUSE I TELL YOU SO
Gives you more damage to enemies with more HP than you. Completely useless since kled has one of the highest base HPs in the game and builds 2 hp items.
Gives you more dmg the lower you are. I take this so i can suprise but**** their jungler who comes to gank me when im low. YOU TAKE THIS CAUSE I TELL YOU SO
Situational. This works only on lethality kled. Other runes such as PTA outshines this!
Reworked DH is viable on kled! You stack it nicely and it increases your burst by TONS.
On paper this sounds good but in reality it doesnt. Kled already has enough mobility to catch onto enemies. This could work on midlane against a roaming champion like LeBlanc who you arent going to kill.
Dont take this. You dont have enough cc to proc this more than once in a fight.
Viable. heals you when you attack an enemy champion. Outshined by other choices in this tree
Best rune on kled on this tree. Gives you lethality when you dash.
I take this. Gives you a ward when you kill an enemy ward.
Gives you vision when you enter a bush.
This would seem like a great rune on kled BUT it got nerfed to the ground so dont take it.
/ / These 3 are all great runes on kled. Pick whatever fits your playstyle.
Complete garbage now. Every other rune outshines this one.
Complete garbage. Was never good on kled and it still isnt. Take this if you are mentally retarted and want to lose your games.
"Oh boy. Movement speed on a bruiser. YIPPIII..." no. As ive said countless times, kled doesnt need movement boosts. He already has enough mobility and stickiness in his kit.
A small hexdrinker. i take this agaisnt teemo, kennen and rumble.
Great rune for stacking CDR. You could go lucidity boots to get extra AD with this rune. Not recommended though
Boosts your bonuses from movespeed buffs. NOT GOOD anymore.
Nice rune! Been taking this a lot in my games.
Gives you more lane pressure. Wouldnt take over absolute focus!
Could be usefull? Havent tested this yet but i would probably take this on Jungle kled. You could pair it up with celerity. You would have some nice scuttle control. I cant name a champ that would beat you level 2 1 v 1
Games are now lasting longer so this is perfectly viable. Im taking this more often now.
Gets outshined. Viable against fiora and other extremely hard mathcups THAT ARENT TANKS.
?? could work on support kled but thats it. Bad rune.
Actually a nice rune on kled. You could take this when you are in a hard matchup like Jayce or something..
Is great on kled since you have massive base hp and if you plan to splitpush.
You dont have enough CC to make this rune usefull.
I take this everygame. Broken rune. You should consider this too
Good rune on kled. Gives extra burst on your AA after ulting since your R gives you a shield.
Great rune on kled thanks to his massive base HP.
Nice rune! Gives you armor and MR after 10 minutes.
Good rune on kled. Nice synergy with your massive base hp.
Could be good? I dont see you taking this over overgrowth though.
Gives no combat stats to an all in champion. Works if you take ignite or exhaust in laning phase. I wouldnt take this unless i was running it down.
please... Dont take this ****ing **** on my champion ever. Ill gut you like the dirty pig you are. Jokes aside this rune gives a small slow on your next auto attack. gets outshined by everything. If you need a slow build BORK.
Could work for some nutty plays over the himalajas? Havent tried it out but be sure to send me a clip if you make a nice play with this.
Doesnt work for me since i go boots early. Otherwise its nice. you can rotate faster i guess?
This rune is good no doubt about it but inspiration tree in general isnt what you want. This is good when you are **** at the game.
Im too lazy to make the rest of the Inspiration tree, but they are all nice runes which are SITUATIONAL.
Abuse kleds lane phase. You are extremely oppressive and even with the slightest lead you can punish your lane opponent hard with your high mobility and stickiness.
-If your lane is hard you can just roam with your ultimate.
-Poke your opponent with Q constantly
-All in when your opponent gets low enough
-After you get some items you can one shot your lane opponent without poking with Q. Remember that you snowball hard. After you get two kills this is what you will look like to the enemy team
This item is amazing on kled. It gives you everything you need. Health, Attack damage, 20% CDR, armor shred and move speed when you damage someone. This is your 100% core item that you build every single game. [unless you go lethality, crit kled].
This item is the second core item on kled. This is amazing on kled. Gives you Health, Attack damage, Waveclear and an amazing active that gives you more burst and a faster 4th Violent Tendencies. Cleave does so much damage thanks to your already huge base hp.
Your usual item build path is (DONT COPY AND PASTE THIS)
Im only gonna go over damage items here, since i mostly build full ad Kled.
Strong item against high burst mages such as Veigar/ Annie. Gives you Ad, Mr and much needed CDR
Core item against squishies. Gives a huge movespeed boost and lethality for bursting those annoying Ad carries and mid laners.
You upgrade your tiamat to this if you need sustain and plan on splitpushing.
Great for killing high hp stackers like Volibear/ Zac
There are 3 situations you build this item in. If you are against perma splitpushers Jax/ Tryndamere/ Fiora, You want to splitpush yourself and if you reach full build. You sell boots for this item at full build.
duskblade of drakthaar Great item for bursting squishies.
Another great lethality item on kled. Gives you HP, AD, Lethality and a great active. You can use this active before engaging to dodge dangerous CC like Dark Binding.
Now that they made changes to steraks i think it might be viable! It now gives 50% of your base AD as BONUS AD which benfits kleds Q dmg.
Build this on kled and you can officially call yourself MENTALLY DISABLED. Kled has a pullback, slow, 2 dashes, an ultimate that is half the map wide. You dont need more stickiness.
So here is a guide on your worst matchups.
This guy is a pain in the ***. He does massive damage with his Bellows Breath and can keep you locked down for ages. If you want to win the lane against him solo you will need 2 divisions more elo than him and a sacrifice to the gods. Heres a few tips.
Jousting can be used to dodge all of his abilities. This is your only counterplay against him. Dodge his Q E combo by dashing to the side and throwing a Q on him. Get your W on him and disengage. If you managed to dodge Q E you will win the trade. Just dont waste your 4th W on his shield. IN 8.2 HIS Bellows Breath NO LONGER CANCELS CC.
After level 6 you need to be careful. He becomes extremely easy to gank for. He cc:s you for ages while the jungler beats you to death.
He will most likely rush Bami's Cinder so you need to rush Tiamat to match his waveclear. After Tiamat you build Phage into Black Cleaver. Recommended boots are Mercury's Treads.
It really doesnt matter if you beat him in lane. He scales extremely well with his massive base damages, tankiness and huge CC with his ultimate Call of the Forge God. He becomes a raid boss late game. You CANNOT 1 v 1 him late game. He does too much Current hp dmg with Bellows Breath and too much max hp damage with his Living Forge
Pray that she has a brain aneyrusm. You wont beat her. Might as well afk.
Her Riposte is big pain in the ***. your Q is the most telegraphed ability in the game. If you want to fight her you will need to bait her W out. After 6 you lose lane. 100%
Your lane trades are simply. Your Q has a lower cooldown than her W. Throw a Q on her and bait out her W. When your Q is back up you will have a free trade on her. MAKE SURE NOT TO TAKE POKE FROM HER VITALS!
After level 6 this lane becomes impossible. You have huge base hp and this benefits fiora as she does max hp true damage with her Duelist's Dance and Grand Challenge. Late game she does 15% max hp true dmg with one proc.
Your biggest counter in teamfights.
Shen isnt a big deal in lane but he can **** you up hard in fights. If you are diving backline he will taunt you and block your W. Thats 80% of your damage. you need to bait out his Shadow Dash and dodge it with E. MAKE SURE THAT YOU DONT AUTO ATTACK IF THEIR AD IS IN HIS Spirit's Refuge.
You build your normal build. Mercurial Scimitar is a good option.
In lane if you are able to dodge his E you can all in and maybe kill him. Remember to dodge his Twilight Assault as it boosts his auto attacks to do even more max hp damage then they already do. If he tries to Stand United on to an ally just Chaaaaaaaarge!!! on his sorry ***. MAKE SURE TO MASTERY EMOTE AFTER THIS!!!!!!!
His laning presence is huge, he is easy to gank for and is hard to gank. What makes him a kled counter is
- huge slow on his Boomerang Throw / Boulder Toss
- Movespeed boost and Max hp damage on his mini gnar Hyper / Wallop
- An escape ability Hop / Crunch
- Ulti that keeps you locked down for 3 years and 27 days GNAR!
Wrapping that up he has A slow, movespeed boost, a jump. How are you supposed to catch this dude exactly? You need to kill him in the early levels because as the game goes on he gets more tanky. His max hp damage wont fall off against you since you have almost 3k base hp at level 18. he does 14% max hp MAGIC DAMAGE while being tanky as ****. and remember. IF YOU MISS EQ IN LANE YOU LOSE! repeat after me. IF YOU MISS EQ IN LANE YOU LOSE!. So how do we build against the man. Pretty simple
Splitpushing against gnar is pretty simple since he cant kill you if you get magic resist and lifesteal. Just be carefull if he has mates since gnar has insane CC.
Everytime i play against this champion i want to end my life.
This matchup is ALWAYS hard but if the jayce actually mains him this matchup becomes cancer beyond cancer. This is another matchup you just stroke out if you get dismounted. There is no way you are running away from him with 345 movespeed.
The matchups goes like this against
A bad jayce:
You jump on him, he outtrades your full combo
A good jayce:
He cancels your Jousting with his Thundering Blow / Acceleration Gate and he will combo you without you able to **** to him.
There arent really any tips for beating him other than ask your jungler for help. You can go in if he wastes one of his abilities on minions. if he wastes his Thundering Blow / Acceleration Gate you can kill him since the ablity is alot of his damage against you.
