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.
To be honest this isnt how i would suggest playing Kennan. Its just a troll build that my friends and i were discussing and tried it out. I would like to see others opinions of it as i did surprisingly well, it could be that the other team sucked though......
The object of this build wasnt to max out ap (though u get a decent ammount) or anything just to alwasy be in the other teams face putting out damage
So heres my tanky Kennan Build
So I chose to go 9-21-0 this time
this is because i wanted the ap boost magi pen and cdr from the attack tree
and all that nice tankiness from the defense tree
ardor is just nice because it ups your atk spd and AP, but the real gem is freaking tenacity....ignoring dmg wow isn't that the point of this guide :P
plus the nice dodge and spd buff after dodge are nice
I went more dodge for the quints to better use the defense masteries, plus dodging is nice i also went with magi resist and armor for my glyphs and seals and for my marks more magi pen yes magi pen is amazing
well im going for staying in the fight so any way to lower the dmg is amazing
magi pen for the marks because marks suck for defense, better for your dmg output
I chose to balance out the skills rather than spamming it all into one as fast as possible this allows you more options in a fight and several decent damaging skills not one that does like 500 and two that do 70ish....this balance also you to pretty adapt to whatever is needed
Lightning form into fights surge ulti, use ur shuriken mostly for harass, never forget to count your attacks because you get a free mark every 5 hits
I would Suggest exhaust, ghost, flash, cleanse, ignite
Exhaust-blinds and slows= you can escape or harass some more
Ghost-move around even faster and break limits, can get u in and out of fights quickly
run in spamm ghost out and comin again from a different angle 5 secs later
Flash-good for ganking and chasing also when used with your ulti is very annoying
Cleanse-yeah for removing debuffs, what more needs to be said
Ignite-bonus dmg if they somehow get away not as recommended good for first blood
Doran's sheild- well the bonus hp gives you that survivablity that makes ken last plus some armor to shrug off attacks and some regen when tower hugging
Ninja Tabi-DOGDE DODGE DODGE kennans a ninja, his "ninjaness" is amped by these boots that allow him to dance around enemies laughing in their face
Leviathan-More hp for ken= survive longer and more harass, the component of this item is the 15% ignore stacked with your 4% from masteries u ignore 19% 1/5 of every attack kinda broken no?
Rylais-More Hp also gives you a nice AP buff as well as that nifty slow for you ridiculously low CDs
Hourglass-yeah for more armor and AP this item is what really sets up for fights. you toss in shuriken lightning form in ulti zhonyas :P
Deathcap-more AP stacking to finalize your dmg output 25% amp woot
RanDuin's Omen-more HP and regen for survivabilty, also gives you more slow when others hit u deterring them a bit, also on active lots of slowgood to use during your ulti
Banshees Veil-more defensive abilities as well as the spell block, this helps keep you in the clear if your targetted as least at first
The first five items i would say are the key components leaving you one situational item srys but thats the way it works. I would suggest Omen or Veil both are really nice (i prefer omen)
Geab hp pots as you see fit, blue buff pot is pretty nice and blue buff itself if you have the time to get them....your ult has kinda a long CD but you can spamm the rest of your stuff
Coming soon -.-
soon as i figure out a way to make this make more sense imma play a few games first
THE GIST OF IT
well basic idea is to play as normal kennan but u can be a bit more daring and risky but of your increased survivability.....also note
best combo for you to use suriken lightning form surge ulti omens zhonyas
then you can chase and target a single hero or flash out if needed
kennan is a fun hero and has constant harass, not much cdr needed as your cds are already low
be sure to abuse zhonyas though with your ulti on, it just pisses ppl off
