Their parents, Mihira and Kilam, began the perilous climb in search of the power to save their tribe from destruction. Even when Mihira learned she was with child, she pushed onward. At the mountain’s summit, she was chosen as a divine vessel for the Aspect of Justice, wielding a sword that blazed with a fire brighter than the sun. Not long after, the twins were born. Kayle, the elder by a breath, was as bright as Morgana was dark. But Mihira had become a fearsome warrior, far greater than any mortal. Kilam began to fear her new divinity, and the sorcerous enemies that were drawn to her light. He resolved to take the girls out of harm’s way, journeying across the Conquerer’s Sea to a settlement where the land itself was said to offer protection against magic. In their new homeland, Kilam raised the twins, their temperaments growing more different with each passing day. Kayle was precocious, often arguing with the settlement’s leaders about their rules—she had no real memory of her mother’s powers, but knew the laws were meant to keep them all safe. Her father rarely spoke of such things, but Kayle was certain Mihira had saved them by ending the Rune Wars on some distant battlefield. When the twins were teenagers, a streak of flame split the sky. A sword smoldering with celestial fire struck the ground between Kayle and her sister, breaking in two—Kilam was distraught when he recognized the blade as Mihira’s. Kayle eagerly snatched up one half of the weapon, feathered wings springing forth from her shoulders, and Morgana cautiously followed her example. In that moment, Kayle felt more connected to her mother than ever, certain that this was a sign she was alive and wanted her daughters to follow the same path as her. The people of the settlement believed the girls had been blessed by the stars, destined to protect the fledgling nation of Demacia from outsiders. These winged protectors became symbols of light and truth, and were revered by all. Kayle fought in many battles, flying at the head of the growing militia and imbuing the weapons of the worthy with her own sanctified fire… but in time, her pursuit of justice began to consume her. Seeing threats within and without, she founded a judicator order to enforce the law, and hunted down rebels and reavers with equal fervor. But there was one person she softened her judgment toward. To the dismay of her followers, Kayle allowed Morgana to rehabilitate wrongdoers who appeared humble enough to admit their guilt. Kayle’s protege, Ronas, was the most disapproving of all—he swore to do what Kayle would not, and attempted to imprison Morgana. Kayle returned to find the people rioting, and Ronas dead. Consumed by rage, she looked down upon the city, and summoned her divine fire to cleanse the city of its sins. Morgana flew up to meet her, raising her blade. If Kayle was to purge the darkness she saw in mortal hearts, she would have to start with her own sister. The two battled across the heavens, each matching the other’s terrible blows and striking the buildings beneath them to rubble. Abruptly, the fight was halted by their father’s anguished cry. Kayle watched Kilam die in her sister’s arms, a senseless victim of the violence that had overtaken the city that day. Then she held the two halves of their mother’s sword in her hands, and vowed she would never again let mortal emotions rule her. As she leapt back into the sky, soaring high above the clouds, she felt she could almost see Mount Targon beyond the horizon, its formidable peak bathed red by the setting sun. There she would seek perfect, celestial clarity. There she would stand at her mother’s side, and fulfill her legacy to the Aspect of Justice. Though she has been absent from Demacia for many centuries, Kayle’s legend has inspired much of the kingdom’s culture and law. Grand statues and icons of the Winged Protector give strength to the heart of every warrior who marches to illuminate the night, and banish all shadows from their land. In times of strife and chaos, there are many who cling to the hope that Kayle might eventually return… and others who pray that such a day will never come.

Introduction

This is RottenGums here and this is my second guide here on Mobafire. I have recently come ti like kayle. A LOT. You might say we kinda have a thing ;). But not really. My place on my team is Solo Top. And I've been trying to use a variety of champs. Kayle, out of the champs i like to you, has the most potential to carry a team and also support them. At first I didn't think she was that good of a support because of her low heal and short duration on her ult. But the cooldowns will make her insanely good, and insanely clutch. In my opinion, kayle is best solo top simply because ranged carries should be going bot with the support. And kayle shouldnt be straight support because there are way better supports out there. and youre Ad carry needs to farm. Kayle need farm very badly as well. So that just aint gunna fly. There are also beter mids, and I dont feel like i can hang against good mid champs, nor can i compete with better jungle champs as kayle. So there ya go. Kayle solo top. Done and done.
Back to Top

Masteries

Well, I like these masteries because i feel i get beter cooldowns, but if youre one to play top and really need the sustain, then by all means put 9 in defense. But 21 should always go in offense. You get cooldowns there as well, so its nice. But you need the damage output or you probably wont make a very good field presence. Ionic spark is more for the health, but the attack speed is more than a wits end. 50% > 40%. If you are being dominated or you are worried about a caster then you should switch this with wits end. The gunblade is more just for the lifesteal, and its nice to have all that other stuff like ap and ad. ALSO, DONT FORGET ABOUT ITDS ACTIVE. once you obtain this item, switch it to slot 1 and use it when needed.

Items

Well, to start solo top, youre gunna need some health regen. Then youll need the mana regen. Then Movement speed and cooldowns. NAshors should be the 3rd item you get. But after Nashors its all up to you. Life steal is more for being comfortable in lane, and surviving in a small skirmish. If no one is really being a threat or you want to do more damage rather than fight toe to toe go with the rageblade brochachos. ATTACK SPEED IS AWESOME AND MORE FUN. And then after that, you can sell your philosophers stone for something else attack speed related, like bloodrazor if needed or wits end/ionic spark (which ever one you did not take already. Or you can turn it into Shurelya's and get that extra health and that awesome active!
Back to Top

Skill Sequence

I try to max my E as soon as possible so i can have a presence on the field and do some consistent damage. With the attack speed and cooldowns your E (maxing first) will do more damage than your Q (maxing first). But if you have others on your team able to carry harder, then max your q first in order to become more of a utility (slow enemies) to those dudes rather than trying to steal their kills. Always max W last because your other spells are just more important. Unless you truly do not have an amazing field presence and you are now used to buff allies and debuff enemies. If you are going to not carry, then just go Q-W-E. and then fit your ults in whenever you can (obviously...)

Summary

Thank you for reading my build, I encourage a lot of feedback. I can take negative feedback. Even if you hate my build just say why it sucks and be on your way. I want to become better, tis why i made this build. I wanted to share my thoughts and get some feedback. Also, I'm sorry I dont know how to get the pretty pictures to show up in the guide. If anyone knows how thatd be great to know.
Remember, SOLO TOP.
