Just a Kayle guide

By Kil4fun
My background
I started to play Kayle after I watched someone I knew play Kayle mid as a trollpick. Originally I was a Jax main and I was frustrated that I could not get myself out of mid Bronze and into Silver. The person who I was watching was Low/Mid Diamond at the time and I thought that Kayle was an extremely strong, off meta midlaner. I started to play Kayle in Season 8 back before she was reworked. She almost singlehandedly got me from Bronze into Plat, and nearly to diamond.

I've had an average of about 55% win rate over every season I've played of Kayle, and to my knowledge I have accrued about 1,000 ranked games on the champion. Even when Kayle was at her "minion" or "broken at level 16" stage, I still had a comfortable 62% win rate on the champion (which went down considerably after she was changed, I was very upset about that). I feel like I have enough ranked games on the champion to be experienced enough to write a guide, even if it wasn't in depth enough to cover exactly how each matchup should be played. I'm not a super high elo player so I can only go off of my own personal experiences on the champion, but I have grown very attached to Kayle over the past few years. I feel that she is underplayed as a champion and has a learning curve, mostly because many people like to play lanes to win, not to get beat up for the first 15 minutes of the game.

If there are any questions on lane matchups, don't be afraid to comment on the guide and I'll try to get back to you. If anyone was curious, my favorite build over time has always been on hit. I love shredding people with pure auto attacks, and I used to take lethal tempo when Kleptomancy was the meta.
Strengths and weaknesses
Kayle has an absolutely abysmal early game. You will hard lose to almost every matchup. Don't even try to fight anyone until you have a deep understanding of the champion. If you have the know how you can trade with quite a few champions at level 1, but level 2+ you more than likely lose.

Kayle's first real power spike is recurve bow. After that, it's mainly item based. Her spikes are on completed items like Nashors, and Riftmaker. Besides that, she REALLY needs her level 11 to fight. Level 6 is good for poking people with autos, but you don't win every matchup with straight autos alone. Level 11 is when you become strong and can trade with and duel many champions. Honestly, her level 16 isn't what it used to be. The bonus is that you'll have your exalted form permanently, no stacking your AA for attack speed and movement speed. You will also gain 50 range which is really important for being able to hit people and not have them hit back.

Kayle is heavily reliant on her team not hard losing early game as her late game just isn't as strong as it used to be. Sure she can still carry lategame, but she isn't the power house with true damage waves that she once was. Your lategame is still really strong, but another hard scaler like Kassadin, Kai'sa, Vayne, or Jhin could easily shut down your game.

Kayle has no hard CC and her only escape is her W, which is a heal and speedup. Managing mana is important early game as you'll need it to both keep yourself healthy, poke, and to ult when you're level 6. Your ult mana cost halves at 11, and disappears at 16. Another thing to note is that Kayle's R has an extremely long cooldown so use it wisely. I usually self ult unless I am behind enough to be completely useless in teamfights.
