Why no ROA Back to Top
Every Kassadin guide will tell you to go Fleet Footwork with tp and rush ROA. I never do this, my runes never change and my build almo chst neveranges. Kassadin is a hard scaling high damage assassin, because of this i always build full damage and never go sustain runes or sustain starting items. Because of kassadins hardscaling nature if he gets ahead in the early game he can reach his powerspikes quicker and carry the game. With the full damage build that I go, I can consistently get myself ahead in lane. With the normal ROA Kassadin build you are very weak in the early game and dont have much potential to put yourself ahead and win. Building ROA and going fleet is a conflip strategy and wont help you climb consistently. With my full damage build i can oneshot almost anyone when it gets to late game and win the game by myself.
How to win early Back to Top
Kassadin is known the be a weak early game champion, because of way most people build him he doesnt have much damage in the early game and isnt able to 1v1 most champions. With my build i always rush a Lost Chapter instead of something like a Catalyst of Aeons because of the AP im getting from Doran's Ring and Lost Chapter I can win trades with most champions and all in people when they under estimate my damage. Most people will try to harass Kassadin in the early game i take advantage of this. When playing against someone like Akali you should always use your Q silence when she goes in for a trade to turn the fight around and kill her. Winning your lane comes down to using your kit and your range to your advantage to gain an edge against your opponents. Building full damage on Kassadin doesnt mean you should constantly be trading with the enemy laner, you should be waiting for your enemy laner to make a mistake and play off that to chunk their hp bar and gain lane pressure. You have to learn your damage and know when you can fight and when you cant, to be a great Kassadin player.
Roaming post 6 Back to Top
One of the best things about kassadin is his roaming potential. You should only be looking for roams when your high on health and mana and your wave is shoved under the enemy turret. You should be looking to kill the lowest health and squishiest target when you gank because kassadin isn't great at killing tanky enemies early. When your enemy laner goes for a roam you should always follow them because you have good potential to counter gank.
Carrying in the late game Back to Top
Kassadin is one of the best late game carry champions. With a normal build people play kassadin like frontline mage. With a full damage build kassadin should be played like a roaming assassin. You shouldnt try to fight a 5v5 teamfight, you should be looking for picks to gain and advantage before a teamfight happens. When looking for a teamfight you should try to fight in choke point areas in the jungle or river to take full advantage of your high aoe damage on your Force Pulse and Riftwalk. In a teamfight you should be playing like a backline carry. You have to wait for the proper time to go in, wait for the enemy to use their big cc and damage on your team, when its the right time to go in target the enemy squishies/carries. When their main damage is gone you can easily cleanup any low damage tanks that are left.
