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.
Hello, Welcome. Take this time to READ the introduction before judging right away by the items, runes and mastery trees and please read CAREFULLY
The BEST WAY to Judge is to KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT IT
Okay, now that that's said and done, please know that this build is MY BUILD AND SUGGESTION. Everyone has their own way of playing Kayle or any other champion THEIR OWN WAY, so please do not bring others down, let them learn their own way and learn their mistakes so they can keep on trying to refine themselves so everyone would have their own ORIGINAL way of playing, Iv seen to many people "Thats not what you get" or "You suck, why did yo uget that item" or "Your masteries and runes are WHAT??!?!?!"
OKAY, the reason why we're here, you probably read the top, Burning sensation, please read below to what im about to say
Kayle is a support champion, yes ... she is BUT SHE BARLY A SUPPORT CHAMPION
Iv seen to many people ... "Why get AS and AD for kayle, wtf you're a support" Shes not a pure support like fringging Janna
I tell them this, and what YOU TELL THEM if you ever try an offensive type kayle "Have you ever played Kayle before?"
If they say yes, THEY ARE LYING OR HAVENT PLAYED ENOUGH LOL ...
TRUTH BE TOLD ... Kayle is Offence CHAMPION AS WELL!!!
I say Offence, a fighter, yeno why? her REMAKE is completely off the grid compared to her old one before, YES OLD KAYLE WAS BETTER because of her amazing old passive which made her powerful and had the choice of going PURE AD or PURE AP, listen to this, To FULLY EXCELL with kayle, YOU CANNOT GO PURE AS/AD OR PURE AP, going PURE AP on her new remake would make her COMPLETELY USELESS BEYOND MEASURE.
Now, for the technical stuff, First off, Skills
This skill is what you should ALWAYS USE when initiating fights with Kayle, everyone should know that, use it if you want to last hit minions in early game if you are getting to much heat from enemy champion harass, never be afraid to use this against Champions
It also AMPLIFIES DAMAGE that Kayle deals to that champion, not only amplified, but SLOWS THEM DOWN, it has a GREAT synergy with RIGHTEOUS FURY when harassing in lanes or doing any sort of fighting, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS use it with righteous fury
Many people love heals, actually everyone should love heals, if you dont like heals, I dont ever want to see you on my friend's list and no way in HELL I would want to see your previous games and the deaths you've got Lol ...
When youre playing Kayle, everyone wants to be on your lane, because of this ... Hmmm lets back up a second here, this should NEVER BE SOMETHING TO SPAM EARLY GAME AND SHOULD ONLY BE USED WHEN NEEDED
Okay, listen to this, just because you are on the same lane with Kayle, IT DOESNT NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD ASK F**KING RECKLESS AND BRINGING YOUR HP DOWN JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE A HEALER ON YOUR LANE, YOU ARE A DUMBASS AND THE KAYLE PLAYER WILL HATE YOU FOR IT
EFFICIENCY IS KEY WHEN PLAYING STRATEGY GAME LIKE LOL (Yes its a f**king strategy game, it looks all kiddy and s**t but remember, do not judge a book by its cover, Chess is a strategy game but people are lazy to fringging learn)
THE WAY TO USE THIS SKILL:
1. HEAL ONLY IF NEEDED
2. Use it when an ally champion is trying to escape a gank or feel they need to speed up to go somewhere important
3. Perfect for initiating ganks when the initiator is slow (Healing would probably be a waste but the speed bonus you get is amazing)
BAD idea to use this is when you are running away and knowing that its a long chase, try not to use this if someone is chasing you for a long run because it only last for a few seconds, try turning more often to confuse them, BUT ... when in doubt, flash over walls :)
This is your *** SMACKING, BACKHANDING, FACEPUNCHING SIGNATURE MOVE when fighting, TRY not to engage a fight without this on
The main Reason why, its remake ... HAS SO MUCH F**KING DAMAGE, not ONLY that but it makes your attack animation ranged, a perfect harass and damage dealing skill, ALSO NOT ONLY THAT BUT IT DOES SPLASH DAMAGE, so feel free to farm with it!
Beautiful synergy with RECKONING, when fighting early game, if you think you're safe to harass, use RECKONING and activate your RIGHTEOUS FURY and you'll be bringing down their HP from Full bar to below half from ONE USE in early game lmao, hows that for some kickass damage? why do you think I wanted you to use AS runes? :)
THIS IS ALSO A TEAM FIGHT KILLER, not only does Kayle excell as a support champion in team fights and ganks but she is AN OFFENCE PLAYING CHAMPION FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, ACTIVATE THIS S**T AND BURN THEM TO HELL (She's an angel, so... no pun intended)
Please read this long paragraph, it will not only cover the Ultimate but everything in general, feel free to ignore the top if you want but I want you to read this
Now, the last and final skill, the Ultimate, INTERVENTION
Look, we all love some invincibility, Kayle is one of the few Champions to have something like that, but the TRUTH is, you MUST, and MUST, for it is CRUCIAL, that YOU MUST LEARN TO USE IT PROPERLY I cannot express this enough, throughout your games playing with kayle, you will learn that using her ultimate is something that you cannot learn on your first try, here are the 3 main points on learning how and when to use INTERVENTION
1. The HOW; INTERVENTION, click the skill, or hotkey binded to it, and click it either on yourself or your ally champion (Hahah ... Yes I DID THIS BECAUSE PEOPLE DONT KNOW HOW TO USE IT, I find myself dying many times because I had a Kayle on my team who never used intervention because she didnt know how :S)
The when is a ***** to do
2. The when; It is good for diving towers ... if you got the balls, but listen, it is only good WHEN YOU ARE RUNNING BACK OUT OF THE TOWER'S RANGE. Sure you could go in, hit the enemy champion, then get tower aggro, then what ... ACTIVATE YOUR ULTIMATE? you'll be good for a few seconds, get the kill, but what about running away? "Oh sure I got alot of HP" but do you know how much DAMAGE the tower does early game? USE YOUR HP AS A MEANS OF TANKING THE TOWER FROM THE START (No I do not mean you act stupid and attack the LOW HP enemy champion and tanking the tower like an idiot) I mean as in use your HP bar as a means of time, learn how much dmg the tower can do and the enemy champion taking advantage of tower aggro against you, once you kill him, calculate the times you need to run out of range (Your HP bar is your timer) once you reached to a point that the tower will kill you with one more hit, THAT IS WHEN YOU ACTIVATE YOUR ULT, learn it, do it, nuff said
Okay, now we're done with tower diving, lets focus on Champion support, IT IS ALMOST THE SAME CONCEPT, yes on the tips on the League of Legends launcher, it says try to use it to prevent dmg instead of waiting for one's HP to go low, I HAVE SEEN TO MANY KAYLE USERS USE ULT TO EARLY and seen the enemy champions run away to time it out, TIMING IS CRUCIAL TO THIS ULTIMATE
When a ally is fighting, or yourself, let your HP go down lower, try to KNOW what the champion is so he/she doesnt nuke you down to death from having low HP, when fighting and having extremely low HP, ACTIVATE YOUR ULT, THAT IS THE PART WHERE THEY GO OVERZEALOUS AND TRY TO FINISH YOU OFF, half the time they will never notice the ultimate animation so feel free to finish them off in this state then port back home for some heals
This is also crucial for lower HP champions running away, if you think it is a perfect timing to block one's range autoattack or ranged skill, USE IT!!!! THEN USE DIVINE BLESSING ON THE ALLY CHAMPION to ensure he runs away safely, if yo uare in range, use RECKONING ON THE OPPOSING ENEMY to SLOW them down
Many people Underestimate my Favorite champion, sigh ... maybe its a good idea since Iv won so many games with her carrying teams with 20-30 kills.
Yes okay okay, please dont rant "WTF phantoms dancer for Kayle? are you stupid"
Sigh, if yo uare thinking that, please hear me out and listen to what I have to say before judging, like I said, the TRUE and REAL WAY of Judging is to know all the facts, read, analyse, then judge me and if you still say "Noob" at reading this. I respect that but please dont whine and complaing if you've seen another Kayle user own YOU AND YOUR TEAM with AS/AD and magic damage DPS build and say shes overpowered ... You will be a hypocrite, I dont like hypocrites
Doran's ring will give you a perfect start, HP added, and mana regen, the reason why I do not use Mana regen runes and masteries is because you do not need to spam much only when you are fighting, as an experianced LoL and Dota player, those who do well are those who try to be mana efficient and HP efficient as possible, please try to be efficient
Berserker's Greaves Try getting the boots and some HP pots if you find yourself back at the base again, Kayle's movement speed is amazing when she gets T2 btu get some HP pots so you dont have to use mana to heal, once yo uget Berserkers, HARASS THOSE MOTHER LOVERS
Zeal Okay, Zeal will not only give you attack speed, it will give you movement speed as well, perfect for chasing and running away, not only that but it gives you CRITS, AS's BEST FRIEND! Crits will be your Back bone in late game along with your Passive's magic penetrate and armor penetrate passive, that is why I wanted you to add Magic penetrate mastery, THEY STACK
Malady Getting this will ensure you kills, zeal along with this will give you so much AS you will be burning down people even tanks to their knees, keep the harass up and gank often when you get this and zeal, once you make phantoms dancer after this, your AS and movement speed along with the movement speed heal if you use it, DAMN ... youll be faster then the people on the Olympics!
Phantoms dancer Iv been bashed to much on about this **** "But why not trinity force?" listen yo, you get AMAzING MOVEMENT SPEED AND ATTACK SPEED AND CRITS FROM THIS compared to trinity force
Yes trinity adds dmg and a passive as well but listen, EARLY GAME, your magic does MORE dmg to them compared to your AD, therefore you need your ATTACK SPEED (AS) up early to take advantage of Malady and your Fury's MAGIC DAMAGE, not to mention its crit, its crit is just a bonus for now, since your MAGIC damage would do more early game, the crits make your AD live up to it, not to mention you need AS to do decent crits
As for the Passive, the Passive is only good if you can spam skills often, as a early-mid gamer, you will need your mana the most since intervention is costly, you are often ganking, using Q and E to fight, TRY GETTING TRINITY FORCE LATE GAME, since your stats are higher then normal and your natural Mana regen is higher that way compared to lvl 1-10 and lvl 11-18, your Mana regen is higher gauranteed
Madred'd Bloodrazer If there are tanks, or any champion trying to stack HP, murder their ***es with this baby, the Razors are amazing if yo uget them first for it lets you farm faster and adds damage since you arent adding any Item dmg yet. Once you get this, you will realize its Magic damage as well, my friends keep asking me this question
"Oh Xefist, does its magic Damage stack with Malady and righteous fury? does it work with the magic penetration as well?"
... YES IT ****ING DOES(DIDNT CENSOR BECAUSE ITS TO GOOD) IT WIL LSTACK WITH FURY AND MALADY
This, get it, enough said, even does decent damage against people who arent even using HP stacking items so w/e, get it, gives AS and AD dmg to, perfect
Hextech Gunblade Now before you start bashing me with comments and saying it got nerfed, its still a decent item (To those who are using Kayle and got this item before, you realize how powerful you are right? yup) gives lifesteal and spell vamp, but heres the best part
YOUR MAGIC DAMaGE from Righteous fury, Malady, and if you get the bloodrazers, IT ALSO coUTNS as SPELL VAMP LOLLL, KAYLE IS A HYBRID FIGHTER ... LITERALLY, GET THIS **** AND YOU WOULDNT EVEN NEED TO GO HOME TO HEAL
The other items, Infinity edge if you want to go pure dmg, frozen mallet, all that sht
do w/e you want to your last item, use your brain, do what works best and what fits for you, this is what I want you to do, your very OWN Last item if you ever get this far to late game, the freedom of choice :) (Btw rylai's slow works on the fury, I dont no if they patched that up yet but try it, I find it OP but I havent used Rylais in months on Kayle so I dont no :S)
And we are done, I dont want to talk more about runes, runes are w/e, do your own runes, this is my runes and its self explanitory, this is just an advice for those who really want to still use or want to use kayle as a crazy DMG dealer and looking for a way to use it, thanks for reading this far, this is my first mobafire build. I never wanted to ever make a build but since Iv been winning so many games with kayle and learning to take advantage of her new kayle as a fighting champion, why not share it? top of the list or bottom, Im proud of it and will still play Kayle, my favorite champion. On a last note ....
... BATTLEBORN IS BETTER THEN SILVER, I DONT CARE IF SILVER IS A RARE SKIN, ANYONE Who has bATTleBORN KAYLE, YOU ARE COOL :)
