My name is xGuido (IGN: Guidoo)and I'm a player on the EU West servers. This will be my first build I will ever make, but I'm trying to get it as detailled as possible! Remember, this build is only a guideline which means that I'm not responsible for your elo. Ok that was a horrible joke. LET'S GET TO THA BUILD YO.
If you want to play with me, just add me!
According to the lore, Rengar is Kha'Zix rival. I played versus 3 Rengars so far, and currently I have defeated every single one of them!
-Very strong early and late game
-Able to choose 3 evolutions for your play style
-Some sustain thanks to W heal
-His hobby is eating yordles
-If you get CC'ed you're done
If played correctly, Kha'Zix is a BEAST. Actually he already is a beast but you minions got the joke. Right? Nevermind ...
Kha'Zix is able to evolve 1 of his abilities every time he ranks up his ultimate. You can only rank up your ultimate 3 times, so that means you can only choose 3 from the 4 evolutions.
Taste Their Fear
Evolved Enlarged Claws
[[Evolved Spike Racks]
Evolved Active Camouflage
The evolutions give you major ability changes, + they make you look more cooler!
For evolution points, I usually go for Q > R > E, because the W is meh. We don't need that attack alot!
I recommend you to always start with Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potion
This movement is very nice, especially combined with the movement speed quintessences. This gives you mobility, and the health potions allow you to stay in lane for a longer time!
On your first recall, buy The Brutalizer. I don't need to explain why you are getting the brutalizer. This item is a beast on certain champions, and Kha'Zix is one of them!
Second pair of boots.
These boots are really dependant on your play style, and on the composition of the enemy team!
3 best choices:
Boots of Mobility
Now why these boots? Sometimes I feel really slow when Im roaming through different lanes, and these boots really help you. Also when trying to sneak up on a ad carry who has fallen behind or ran 10km in front of his team!
When you're facing versus a damaging/harassing ad offtank in your lane, these boots are an excellent choice. 10% damage reduction is alot!
This is also a very handy pair of boots. When you are facing a team that has alot of annoying CC, buy these babies!
After this I usually go for
[.[Giant's Belt].] which I build into a Frozen Mallet later on. The belt gives you some needed HP, and the frozen mallet wont let your enemies just walk away from you! THERE IS NO ESCAPE. Oh and if you got the Frozen Mallet, save your money to buy Youmuu's Ghostblade!
Now here you have to look on how you and the enemy are doing at the momemt. But I advise you to buy both, but buy the item that you need the most!
Maw of Malmortius
Excellent item when you are getting some magical damage. It has AD, and Magic Resistance and not to forget: it's passive that gives you a shield that blocks 400 magical damage.
If you are getting fed, and have no problem in surviving teamfights, buy this item for moar attack damage! 60 AD is a nice extra!
Now for the last item.
You can really take anything you desire here. Usually the enemy team starts stacking armor. Kha'Zix no like armor. Kha'Zix buy armor penetration. Nuff said.
(They are all alphabeticly ordered!)
Why would he even try? Try to dodge when he throws his Bandage Toss and unleash your full combo. You'll win!
Fiora is usually recognized as the OP top lane champion. WRONG. She is not really hard to kill. When she uses Riposte try to wait while the effect ends. After that start your crazy combo again!
Kha'Zix Depends on your skill
In this fight Kha'Zix will win for sure! Use my build and you will conquer your lane, ofcourse skill is most important in this battle.
Malphite is just a pain in the *ss. He slows you and steals your movement speed, and does some nasty damage when he has ability power. It's really hard to play against him. Try to focus farm and hope for the best.
Nunu & Willump
Rengar has some crazy damage with his Q Savagery but after that he does not really have anything else then his basic attacks. When he leaps from a bush, Leap on top of him, basic attack, and follow up with a Taste Their Fear. You will hit him way harder than he will hit you!
