Disclaimer - I don't really play Kayle much
Ultimately, I think ADC is a bit OP late-game because IE wrecks everything, but I suspect that the build I give here will be strong mid-game. Also, it has nice burst thanks to the dual scaling on Q.
Basically, IE outscales everything else in the game on every champion except for Veigar in a 4-hour match, so whatever. You still might win with hybrid play in reasonably short games. It works for Jax. It may work for Kayle once more, now.
THIS IS HUGE.
It's like they want you to build Nashor's Tooth now or something. So I'm going to do it.
is a good start, I think. Lane forever, harass with Reckoning, sustain with Divine Blessing. Don't go crazy. Maybe last-hit with Righteous Fury if you have to; the splash is a nice bit of harass to make this a bit more possible.
If you don't think Kayle needs MP5 or CDR, then feel free to skip to Guinsoo's Rageblade instead, I guess. Tooth holds things together well with the AS, but you can consider Malady as a substitute. I think 25% CDR is kind of boss.
Mercury's Treads are... well, you know what they do.
Hextech Revolver buffs Kayle's sustain a lot.
Guinsoo's Rageblade makes E-enhanced auto-attacks strong. If you're good at keeping the stacks running, Q gets a nice boost as well.
Rabadon's Deathcap needs no introduction. Once you have enough AS, the AP is justified, between Q and E together. Before then, it's hard to use E and Q isn't enough alone, so it's not worth it.
Hextech Gunblade is a good luxury upgrade. Can be taken sooner, I guess, but Kayle already has a slow on Q. The more the merrier?
The sixth item can be whatever you really need. Aegis of the Legion, Guardian Angel, Trinity Force, Malady, Frozen Mallet... I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of options. It's probably best to be situational about the sixth item, and maybe even take it sooner in the build if needed.
