[PATCH 11.9] Kalista ADC Full Guide

About Me
Hi My gametag is Ekezun, I just started playing Kalista and I'm gold but still decided to make a guide on her for some reason. It's been quite fun but you know.

Have fun reading my guide!
Tips and Tricks Back to Top
- The double E-pull: If you have a bunch of stacks in an enemy and you throw an AA at them you can E while the AA is in midair and it will pull once with the stacks you already have plus the one autoattack you just threw.

- The Double-Jump: If you AA, jump and then Q jump in the middle of your hop you get a double hop, wow!

- The Q Transfer: Let's say you have a bunch of Spears in a minion or enemy of any sort and the kill it with Q and hit another enemy with that same Q you will transfer over all stacks from the enemy you killed to the enemy you hit after you killed that enemy letting you basically One-Shot that second enemy.
Runes for Kalista Back to Top
Most of the time you wanna go for Hail of Blades but when you're up against someone who can easily stop your 3 AA burst you might have to take Lethal Tempo, Also it's your choice whether you wanna go for Overheal or for Triumph. These two depends on if you wanna go for the easier teamfights with Triumph or the increased survivability with Overheal.
Items for Kalista Back to Top
- The starting item depends completely on who you're up against, for example if you're playing against an MF and a Xerath bot, I'd probably go for Doran's Shield cosidering the crazy amount of poke they have together. Though if I were up against for example Twitch and Thresh I'd probably go for Doran's Blade because I would want to get early kills on Twitch.

- I always go for Berserker's Greaves first every game because they give both AS and MS which helps alot with the early game with Kalista.

- The mythic items are quite simple, if you feel like your gonna die alot from for example a Zed or an Akali, go for Immortal Shieldbow, if you feel confident and they have for example a Garen and a Braum go for Krakenslayer.

- The situational items are explained quite well above so just give that another look :)
Skills/Spells Back to Top
There is not much to say about the skills, just go those I picked every game and you're good to go.

The spells are really dependant on who you're up against, for example if you are against an Ahri as a support and an Ashe ADC in the botlane then go for Cleanse to both survive and maybe be able to turn the fight on them. And otherwise just go for Heal.
Thank you for reading my guide Back to Top
