Evolve order?

What to evolve as Kha Zix jungle in different scenarious

If you do Phase rush Kha Zix the evolve order is R > W > E

If you do Electrocute Kha Zix the evolve order is Q > W > E or Q > E > W depending on if you are fed or not

Evolve order on Kha Zix jungle video

If you wan´t to know what my typical evolve order is, then it is Q at lvl 6, W at lvl 11 and E at lvl 16.

Though this evolve order is not always the best and that´s why I made this video, to give you guys some what of an idea on what to evolve at what point or stage in the game.

Mainly E and R are the evoulutions that can get countered.

E evolve is getting countered by cc, such as Poppy´s W, Veigar´s E or Janna´s Q and R while R evolve is getting countered by champions who can reveal stealth, such as Lee sin with his Q and E or Twisted Fate with his R.

If you are against some of thees champions you might want to evolve in a different way that you usually do :)

My live stream:

My main account:

Evolve Q first (good for 1v1´s)

Evolve E second if you are fed (Gives you resets so you can go deep and still get out)

Evolve W second if you are even or behind (gives utility, so your team can do some work)

If you evolved E at lvl 11 evolve W at lvl 16 and the opposite way around

Only Evolve R if you are insanely fed and you are the carry on your team, then evolve R insted of W at lvl 16 :)

There are 2 main rune pages for kha zix

Electrocute and Phase rush

I recommend Electrocute for lower elo and Phase rush for higher elo

Lower elo: Iron/Bronze/Silver/Gold/Plat/Diamond
Higher elo: Master/Grandmaster/Challenger

The 2 rune pages look like this:

Electrocute or DH?

Electrocute is better and provides more damage than Dark Harvest

So Take electrocute on Kha zix every single game as of right now

Electrocute is way better than Dark harvest since Dark Harvest got nerfed to ground and electrocute is almost the same as before

So take electrocute every single game on Kha zix

A walkthrough of the Electrocute vs Dark Harvest on Kha Zix situation


Taking examples from me and Damir

I personally think electrocute is the best option on kha most of the time, while Damir always runs Dark Harvest on Kha Zix

This video is not made to convince you that Electrocute is best

This video is totally based on my opinion

Tips & Tricks for Kha Zix

10 tips & tricks for kha zix video

Kha tips:

1. Passive unssen threat reset when ever going into unwarded bush
2. You can Tiamat + Q mid air if E is evolved
3. Your Q gets 50+ bonus range when evolved
4. Your Q is extended when mid air if E is evolved
5. Whenever kha is in ulti he is ignoring unit collision which means he can´t be minion blocked
6. Kha Zix W evolved gives sight of enemies
7. Your passive also slows which means your combo will look like this: aa + passive with slow + Q
8. Your ulti can cancel targeted abilities such as Darius ulti if timed correctly
9. Flash will cancel your E jump so use Flash then E not the opposite way around
10. Your Q is not an auto attack so you can still Q things such as Pantheon with passive block Jax with E counter strike active

Bonus tip:
Animation cancel on W after you have landed with e

How to gank as Kha Zix?

Try to gank laners who has cc, since kha´zix has no cc in his kit except one little slow in his passive

If enemy laner has flash up:
Try to come up behind the enemy laner
Go in auto attack with passive for slow
Use Q on the enemy to burst
USe R to become invisible and reset your passive and then auto attack to proc your passive extra damage and slow again (do this twice, combined with your R and Q)
Use W while in close range of the enemy to gain heal back
Use E after enemy flashed to keep on being in range with Q and auto attack

If enemy laner doesn´t have flash up:
Use E to instantly be in range of the enemy
Use Q and Auto attacks for damage
USe R to become invisible and reset your passive and then auto attack to proc your passive extra damage and slow again (do this twice, combined with your R and Q)
Use W while in close range to gain heal back

How to play Kha Zix Jungle (Detailed with video)

So how does Kha Zix Jungle work?
How do you play Kha Zix Jungle?

So first you wanna copy the runes from this guide
Then you go into a game and while in champion select and loading screen, you starting thinking off, what laners are gankable? you do that by watch the match ups and see if your laners has cc and if enemy laners has any type of dashes. When you made a plan for what laners you should gank you just follow the plan and if anything changes try to think ahead of time, what objective should I get next, can i predict where the enemy jungler is etc.

I will give more examples. ideas and go more into detail on my stream over at so if you wan´t a high elo mindset and try to carry games as a jungler and control almost the entire game, feel free to come in to my stream and say hey can you go more into detail of what your mindset is in a game.
