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.
4.Presentation of his skills
5.What to buy and why
6.How to play him
I take 9x Greater mark of Insight for magic penertration and that's a need for Kennen
9x Greater glyph of Focus for CD reduction
9x Greater seal of Potency
and 3x Greater Quintessence of Insight for mp again.
This is the best summoner spell for Kennen because you can quickly engage in a team with to release your ultimate or to escape if you're in troble
Very good spell for chasing or espacing enemys or to blind an enemy that wants to rape you.
3. PRESENTATION OF HIS ABILITES:
Q spell Thundering Shuriken
(Active): Kennen throws a fast moving shuriken towards a location, causing damage and adding a Mark of the Storm to any opponent that it hits.
This is your MAIN last hitting abiliti for minions and for harrasing enemy champions. It has a low CD so you should spam the whole time..
W spell Electrical Surge
(Passive): Every 5 attacks, Kennen deals magic damage equal to a percentage of his attack damage and adds a Mark of the Storm to his target.
(Active): Surges electricity through all nearby targets afflicted by Mark of the Storm, dealing magic damage and adding another mark.
Great spell for harras enemy champions due to her passive and active
E spell Lightning Rush
(Active): Kennen moves very fast,gaining increased Armor and Magic Resistance, and the ability to pass through units, dealing magic damage and adding a Mark of the Storm to any hostile unit he passes through.
Kennen is refunded 40 energy if he passes through an enemy while using this spell, but can only gain this effect once. Lightning Rush deals half damage to minions.
This your your chasing or escapins spell. It gives you kinda sweet speed when used and Armor and Magic resistance.
R spellSilicing MaelstormSilicing Maelstorm
(Active): Kennen summons a magical storm that deals magic damage to a random enemy champion near Kennen every 0.5 seconds. This storm attacks up to a few times and cannot hit the same target more than 3 times. A Mark of the Storm is applied to enemies each time they are hit.
This is your most deadly spell in team fight deal hard damange when you have more than 400 AP around 1k damage to each enemy champion. And it's NOT canceld when you'r stuned.
Passive Mark of the Storm
(Innate): Kennen's abilities add Marks of the Storm to opponents which last for 12 seconds. Upon receiving 3 Marks, an opponent is stunned for 1 second and Kennen receives 25 energy. The stun has a diminished effect if applied more than once within 7 seconds.
So yea your passive ... One of the best it's like Annie ones but you just need to hit a guy with your spells 3x = STUN and you get 25 Energy
4.WHAT TO BUY AND WHY?
So since kennen has kinda low AP ratio is a NEED to get a lot of Magic Pen.
Start with and one . When you go back for the 1st time buy and if you got enough gold upgrade your boots to . When you go your 2nd time back you have to buy no matter what for more magic penetration to do maximum damage to guys with less than 50 magic resistance. And then say hello to middle game. Now you should buy 1x more (BUY THIS ELIXIR EVERY TIME YOU GO BACK OR YOU DIE)and buy also start buying components for when you got it start getting .Now after you got this time you come to middle game due to it's slow! Now none can escape when you chase some1 or try to chase you... and in team battles you do mega damage. And there we come to the late game. Now you should get for more magic pen cause enemy will have more magic resistance and you want to do still max damage as possible. When you got Void Staff then you just need a little bit more survivability and that's . Normally you won't even get Zhonya's ring cause the game will end before late game... Also at the end you should have a 10/1 KD ratio.
5. HOW TO PLAY KENNEN?
You should play him a typical mage. You should go on middle lane and farm minions until lvl 4 then start harras enemy champion with your Q and W spell. Always MOVE don't stand you have to move it's a need... When you're lvl 6 and the enemy guy has less than 3/4 HP you should go for the kill when he's near your turret and you have FULL energy pool! Don't suicide with him. In team battles don't initiate exept if you have got Zhonya's ring already ohterwise wait for the tank to go in then use your E spell and try to hit it with it every enemy so that you apply Mark of Storm then use your W spell to trigger it and add 1 more Mark of Storm after that nuke them with your ultimate ( If you have got Zhonya USE it while ulti is chanell so that you won't take any damage! ) That's for now how to play with hem. Rembember just harras harras .. with your W and Q spell enemy champions.
Tips and Tricks:
You can use Thundering Shuriken while in Lightning Rush form for a quicker throw to give the enemy less time to react.
Lightning Rush increases your armor and Magic Resist, so during Karthas' or Vlad's ultimate pop it to reduce damage.
If a stealthed unit has at least one mark on them, you can electrical surge to find out their location in order to hit them with another Thundering Shuriken.
P.S. sry for copy.
