Threats to Kayle with this build

Show all
Threat Champion Notes
Yasuo MID / TOP: Yasuo can do nothing against kayle. Your splash damage (E) even penetrate his wall! He put his life in danger even if he is farming under turret. Be careful with your lane push still, their jungle may focus on mid.

  • Hello and Welcome to my Kayle complete guide.
  • I am Xplor, just a simple summoner on EUNE, and here I write a complete guide about Kayle, and the way to become way so much overpowered in almost any games with this champion!
  • Kayle is one of my favorite champions, an Angel of Destruction!

Guide Top

Pros / Cons

  • Kayle can be an Angel in almost every game, but in some of them, he can't find his place...

  • There are PROS which make this champ UNIQUE, but there are CONS which makes her just an Fallen Angel!...

Guide Top


  • A part which make Kayle to be the "Angel of Destruction" are these runes, all unique and primary, giving to Kayle the early and all-long game sustain she needed!

  • The base status on Kayle is Attack Speed!
  • Having it on early game gives you a very good sustain and a much more easy farm.
  • Also, the poke and chance to win a duel is drastically increased.
  • Pick it ALWAYS!

  • You get around 35% total CDR at level 18
  • Your "E" can be on 95% of the time late game
  • Mainly used by High Elo players
  • Alternatively you can pick Greater Glyph of Ability Power

  • Again, Attack Speed is the base status on Kayle
  • Early farm and attacks are drastically improved
  • You gonna see the difference all game long!
  • You should always PICK Them wherever you go with Kayle!
  • With these ones and marks, you just got +29% Attack Speed only from RUNES!

Guide Top


  • These are the standard and unique masteries for Kayle
  • Pick them wherever you go, MID or TOP, but not as Support or Jungle.
  • It gives you the required status he needed to complete his Journey to Summoner's Rift
  • The listed Keystone is a part of Kayle, which makes her "The Angel of Destruction"

  • 5/5 Fury
  • As I've said, attack speed is the base status for Kayle.
  • You get additional 4% from here.
  • Take it, is a MUST!

  • 1/1 Double Edged Sword
  • It's a permanent 2% damage output.
  • Is the best one from these 3 actually for Kayle
  • Risky still, additional 2% damage imput

  • 1/1 Oppressor
  • Kayle benefit with a huge Slow from "Q"
  • High Attack Speed with High Slow Duration make this perk a very good pick!
  • Bounty Hunter is a viable pick as well...

  • 5/5 Piercing Thoughts
  • It's Magic Penetration; Kayle is on Ability Power. You need IT!
  • Fully stacks with your "E" Splashes.
  • There's nothing else to pick.

  • 1/1 Fervor of Battle - MAIN KEYSTONE!
  • It's the best keystone and unique for Kayle
  • Stacks in an incredible fast RATE!
  • Insane damage burst only from this keystone!

  • 5/5 Wanderer
  • Kayle's movement speed is in her favor. Improve it with this perk!
  • Savagery is not a good pick since you SPLASH more that Basic Attack! :)
  • Wanderer 's Movement Speed applies only OUT OF COMBAT!

  • 1/1 Assassin
  • Mostly on your lane, you are going to be alone, so this is a good pick.
  • With this perk, you have increased chance that a duel turn into your favor.
  • Secret Stash Can be good too for more potion sustain...

  • 5/5 Merciless
  • More burst damage on low hp enemy champion.
  • Another perk which is in your favor in a duel.
  • Meditation is a viable pick, knowing that Kayle have early mana problem

  • 1/1 Dangerous Game
  • Gives you little sustain in team fights, if you manage a kill or assist.
  • Can turn sometimes a battle into your favor, for just "a little".
  • Bandit is mostly a support perk.

Pick always teleport if you go on a TOP lane. It helps you return to it, teleport directly into a team fight and so on. Is a primary skill for almost any top Champions. Flash is the KING of summoner spells. Pick it on any lane you go. It helps you to engage or escape. Is a life and death spell. Kayle count on IT. Ignite is a very viable pick if you go into the mid lane, along with FLASH; Increase the chances to win the lane and any further fights.

This kind of boots you should definitely get on KAYLE, because the extra attack speed is insane!
Indeed, these are more expensive that the other ones, but believe me it is going to worth every single gold!

The "Tooth" is the MAIN Item on KAYLE and you should NEVER avoid building it. It gives the haste you need, bonus magic damage on hit and lots of Cooldown Reduction with strong Ability Power you need all over the game.

This item is one of the strongest one for Kayle and after the update 6.9, this champion just ABUSE from it, because of the passive:
It's just purely impossible to think how GODLIKE is Kayle with this item now.
That passive when is stacked gives you DOUBLE ON-HIT EFFECT from everything you have (keep in mind that Kayle's one of the strong-point is on hit effect!)

Did you know that the passive from Hurricane stacks with your SPLASH damage?
After ending this item your SPLASH and ATTACK SPEED become really insane, giving you the possibility to clear huge waves in 1-2 seconds maximum, and the insane damage you deal on champions make you THE ANGEL OF DESTRUCTION!.
Pick it always, never SKIP!

First defensive AP item you gonna build is the 5th one. Now that you have insane attack damage, go for this one so you proc. the slow on enemy champions, better damage from AP and more Health for surviving late games. It's something you really need to build on late game on Kayle!

This item is extremely important to pick on Kayle but unfortunately this is going to be only the last item built!
Always TAKE it, because Guinsoo's Rageblade passive benefit strongly by ON-HIT EFFECTS (double it), and this item gives you insane one!
Notice that the maximum attack speed is 2.5 (2.5 attacks per second) - And now you are going to reach it.

  • Situational items. Pick them... wisely

Void staff is a very good item but is only situational one!
You should pick in case they have enemy team with lots of tanks or champions who stack magic resist against you.

This item is framed only as situational items. The burst which gives you is pretty good but it doesn't stack with "E" auto attacks. And, on Kayle, you have pretty big cool-down on your skills comparing to other champions where this item fit better.

Pick this item if you want to reach a fair bigger amount of AP on Kayle, so your damage can go even more crazy on very late game.
My advice, pick it only if you have little problem killing the enemy champions on end-game, if they over-damage you and you want to burst them down!

Playing as... Kayle.

  • All right guys, here we go close to an end, and before the summary, I will put here some games or moments I had with Kayle, and made the real difference, leading to a victory!

Here we have one new game playing as Kayle vs. Azir on MID, ranked. I had a pretty well KDA: 18/3/10
The game was really fun to play.
Even if Irelia from our team had pretty negative score, we managed to hyper-carry the game.

Kayle vs LeBlanc
I had another experience today fighting against LeBlanc on MID, and to be honest is not such a high thread, so I uploaded the video to let you know how it is actually against her.
I hope you enjoy the video.

Here's a game as Kayle vs
Yasuo on MID, on a RANKED game.
Kayle counters
Yasuo, so actually is an easy game.
Sorry for only ambient music. The "skype sound" was recorded over original audio, and I removed it.

Additional Patch Notes & Changes

Here'll write the changes through this guide or the new patches which affects Kayle.

Patch 6.10:


There come nothing new on this patch which affects Kayle or her gameplay.

Runes update:


I've changed the Ability Power Glyphs with Cooldown reduction per level, 15% more CDR being definitely more useful at level 18!
Besides you reach about 35% total CDR now, which allows you to have your "E" on almost 99% of the time.



Today I've succeed to finally rework the guide, add some more information, changing some stuffs and updated few chapters;

  • Void Staff was removed from FINAL items and ADDED to situational items
  • Wit's End was added to FINAL items!



Guinsoo's Rageblade - MAJOR UPDATE


Ok. To make a quick review over this item:
  • It drop some status because right now stacks only 6 times not 8 anymore.
  • But this is a good thing: THE PASSIVE PROC EVEN FASTER
  • Everything is about this passive: Why? Because it double ON-HIT effects
  • Kayle get on-hit effect from many sources: It's going to ABUSE from it!
  • Additional this item gives as well ON-HIT effect :)



Corrupting Potion (As defensive Starting item) got modified this patch:
  • HEALTH REGENERATION 150 health per charge ⇒ 125 health per charge
  • MANA REGENERATION 50 mana per charge ⇒ 75 mana per charge
To be honest, this is a little boost for him, because some abilities are mana dependent early.
  • But there nothing else which affects Kayle or his gameplay changed this patch.



There's nothing in this patch which affects the Kayle gameplay.



Today, I open a new chapter where I will add all the changes which are coming to this guide and the patches which are going to affect the Kayle gameplay or nerfing / buffing items which mainly use it...
