KENNEN* The BEST Guaranteed Diamond Climb

By ScottTheTeemo
Hi Guys, my name is ScottTheTeemo. Come say hi @

I FINALLY MADE THE KENNEN GUIDE. I've been playing a lot of kennen, and I've told everyone I'll make a Kennen guide for a while now...

Made a very easy guide that everyone can follow and climb with. I'll add more and more details as time flows + update the guide for you guys. Good luck guys!
Unique Skills Back to Top
Keep in mind about Kennen's passive:

Kennen's abilities add one stack of Mark of the Storm to their target for 6 seconds. If the target reaches 3 stacks, it is stunned for 1.25 seconds and Kennen gains 25 Energy.

Also, his W has a passive, every 5 attacks he deals bonus magic damage and applies a mark of the storm.

Rotating these abilities and stuns can really dominate most lanes through silver to diamond.
Combo Back to Top
Auto Attack (with Proc)-W-E[STUN]-Q-aa-R-aa-aa[hits twice for STUN]aa-W-E[STUN]Q[Mark]

Try this ^

If not try to Ult , FLash into enemy comp for a big proc -> Zhonyas.
Spells Back to Top
Ignite is viable.

I usually get ignite on Kennen against match ups like teemo/jayce/quinn.

(Ranged champs who are also very aggressive in lane)

Generally with klepto, it's smarter to take Teleport and make money off your enemy laner.
Farming Back to Top
You farm minions like an adc would.

Learning to freeze and last hit can be difficult for a user below platinum 2.
Watch on stream, and ask on stream how to lane and control minion waves.

Remember, farming well and precise is good, but sometimes you need to sometimes use
E->W to clear waves fast and apply pressure in a lane.
"Jungling" Back to Top
Taking enemy krugs can be good during certain times; however, it could be a better use of time to gank mid or TP gank bot.
Bans Back to Top
Honestly, ban what you want. Riot comes out with a new champion, reworked champion, unbalanced champion, .. etc.etc.etc.... every month.

Everyone's got different bans they like to ban.

However, one good tip will be: CHECK HIGHEST WIN RATES OF TOP LANE <- <- <- If a champion has the highest win rate in top, there's already a good reason to ban that champion.

I personally ban Kled/Jayce/Pantheon a lot in the current patch.
Counters Kennen (top lane) Back to Top




Dr. Mundo


Countered By Kennen (top lane) Back to Top
Every champ usually either than the ones that counter Kennen, gets countered by him. (that's why he's great for solo q climbing)
ULT (also AD Kennen) Back to Top
Flash -> ULT (use during big team fight, or 2-3 man ult)

E -> ULT (1-2 units CC lock to pick an opponent)

AD kennen deserves it's own guide. (I'll try to add another ad guide next time... I don't have enough games on AD Kennen yet)
Stay tuned... Back to Top
stay tuned for ad kennen guide ~ ...
