Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Well, hello boys and girls. Today, I am going to introduce you to a very powerful champion...
Some people will say I am a little crazy, or even completely insane for thinking of Kassadin as a 3v3 champion.. Well, let's see if I can pass on the craziness..
Lets first take a look at the summoner spells...
Summoner Spells: Some people don't agree with this,but when you need to nuke someone down, or catch up to your team late game, you're going to be glad you have this.
: Stuns and slows happen, so don't be helpless when they do. Your R can do so much, but it can't do jack when you're stunned and slowed to oblivion.
Now then... Let's take a look at the laning phase..
I know what you were thinking when you saw the Dorans ring on the item list... Yes, it's obvious, but you can't get an awesome build without picking up an essential early game item like the ring..
Kassadin can be a monster late game, but he is very hard to hold his own until after he hits level 6, so it is probably best to lane with someone until then, unless your team is organized enough to set up several ganks for top to help feed you.
Speaking of feeding the Kassadin, rush the Soulstealer. I don't care if you don't stand a snowballs chance in hell (pun intended), you're going to buy it and you're going to like it.
I also would like to remind all you 3v3 funbag lickers to BUY A WARD FOR RED BUFF! Why? Because it's a free kill for bottom lane most of the time, and even if your lane partner gets the kill, your Q will land you a stack on your Mejais and some gold and experience, because like I said, your journey to level 6 is important!
So now you have a assist, maybe even a kill, that Mejai purchase is looking promising, and it looks like you just hit level 6.. *Insert evil laugh here*
Kassadin is as dangerous as he is annoying for the sole fact that if he is missing, he is probably going to land on top of you with his ultimate any second.
Kassadin is still fairly weak.. All flare, no scare until after get his archangels and Lichbane, so let the farming commence!
Oh yeah.. You can start warding dragon now. ;)
All farm and no gank makes Kassadin a dull assassin, so tell your top lane to let the enemy push forward a bit to get some extra gold and experience, and start using a purple ward to counter mid if they are onto your scheme..
I forget to mention it earlier, but I bet you found the passive on your W ability to be just the cup of tea you needed to hit the spot, because who doesn't love mana for smacking people in the face..
Kassadin isn't the best at farming, so that is exactly why he was blessed with such amazing abilities that allow him to get in and get out of battles with a kill or two, use these abilities to your advantage.
Everything else on the guide is self explanatory, just remember to silence the caster/support, nuke the carry, and floss your phase blade with the tank, then use your W to smash down the towers.
edit: Because there has not been an update, Zhonyas obviously means deathcap.
