Introduction

Hi everyone, I'm Redf├┤x, and this is my Kha'Zix Guide. I am currently Diamond 5 Jungle Main trying to improve. I worked hard to make this guide the best I could, and I would appreciate any and all feedback that you guys may provide. This is the first of many guides to be released under Redbird eSports, a Registered Student Organization(RSO) at Illinois State University. I am the President of Redbird eSports, feel free to ask any questions!

Items


  • This item can fit into any build. The passive synergizes extremely well with Void Assault. Even if you are building bruiser, consider this item. This item was meant for Kha'Zix.


  • This item is a must against champions that build armor. This item is great against champions that have higher health than you. I found that this item gives Kha'Zix what he needs to one shot adc's that build Ninja Tabi. As an adc, building Ninja Tabi can be the difference between you getting one shot or winning the teamfight. As an assassin Ninja Tabi destroys lethality stacking, so Last Whisper is the solution. Even just getting Last Whisper can be enough to shread the Bonus Armor that people build early. VERY situational.


  • If you are against big unavoidable threats such as Syndra or Veigar then this is the item to go for. For me, other AP champions can be dealt with by having proper positioning. Typically I don't itemize Magic Resist unless there are multiple threats. Very Situational Item.

  • I like this item as my final buy on assassin Kha'Zix as it makes you a pain in the bug to kill. Especially good when paired with Ninja Tabi, you become a big tanky bug.

Skills/Evolutions

  • Your passive pumps on underestimated amounts of damage. Empowered auto attack that slows target hit and deals extra magic damage that also slows. Reactivate by walking into brush,using Void Assault, or going into fog of war. Understanding how to use your passive is vital in mastering Kha'Zix. This passive also synergizes with Duskblade of Draktharr really well.

  • This is Kha'Zix bread and butter ability. Use this as much as you can. Your damage is increased by 65% against isolated targets. Max this ability first. I evolve this ability 1st almost every game. My playstyle is very in your face dueling style. This is my preference and should by no means be something you evolve EVERY game. Look at the game and decide what you need.

  • This is Kha'Zix main poking tool. Evolved Void Spike fires 3 clusters of spikes in a cone and slows by 40%. Hitting an isolated enemy with evolved Void Spike slows them by 80% instead. Max this second, and evolve it second or third if you want to play more of a supportive role on your team or have extra sticking power. This evolved ability will allow you to peel with ease and catch out enemies with that 80% slow.

  • This is Kha'Zix main gap closer. This ability allows you to jump and assassinate isolated squishies or escape a bad situation. Evolving Leap dramatically increases the range of the jump and reset's the cooldown on kills or assists.
    Max this last, and evolve it whenever you want. I usually evolve it second, since that is the best time to make use of the resets you get from it.


  • This is Kha'Zix main utility tool. Use this to dodge skill shots or get close to a target and assassinate them. Use this ability to refresh your passive, Unseen Threat. If you chose to evolve Void Assault do it first or not at all because you want to take advantage of the invisibility early to affect your ganks.

Tips and Tricks

  • When clearing the jungle, killing the small monsters will isolate the large monster allowing
    Taste Their Fear to do more damage.
  • Along with item actives, Taste Their Fear can be used mid-air which saves you from having to cast it on the ground.
  • Kha'Zix is able to kite jungle camps effectively. This allows him to take less damage in the jungle, but at the cost of a slightly slower clear time. More information below on this.

Mechanics/Combos

1. Taste Their Fear mid-air
    This combo is very basic and helps with the flow of his combo. Simply cast
Leap and use Taste Their Fear in the air. This will allow you to auto attack once you hit the ground to proc Unseen Predator and Dark Harvest.
2. Assassination Combos
    In a perfect world, you would do the following combo:
Void Spike, Leap, Taste Their Fear mid-air, Unseen Predator auto attack. This combo allows you to dish out the most damage you can in the shortest amount of time. If your target isn't dead, simply chase them with Void Assault and use Taste Their Fear when it is not on CD.
    Sometimes you won't have time to cast
Void Spike before Leap, so your combo would be the same as above except you would cast Void Spike after the auto attack. This is a cleaner combo for a target who can already see you as it allows you to more easily land Void Spike because of the slow from Unseen Predator.
3. Resetting Passive
Unseen Predator can be Kha'Zix best ability. It can allow you do dodge skill shots, reposition and dish out high amounts of damage. In order to reset it, simply use Void Assault and when you come out of stealth auto attack your target. Repeat until you run out of stealth charges.

Jungle Clear

Kha'Zix is a jungler that tends to lead towards getting a lead and then riding that lead to victory. This requires you to get ahead in the early game. I strongly recommend that you do a level 3 clear, which would look like the following:

Blue Side: Red>Wolves>Blue

Red Side: Blue>Wolves>Red

After this, I usually look for the skuttle crab and then gank.

Below is a video of me clearing on Blue Side. Pay special attention to how I kite the camps and why I click where I do.



Now I'm going to tell you that the above works if you want to play braindead every game. Each game you should do an analysis of what lanes you can gank, what pathing the enemy jungler will do, and which opening route you should go for. These points can be broken down even further.

Let's start with deciding which lanes you can gank. This involves looking at the champions that you team has versus the champions that the opposing team has. Do your lanes have set up? This would include all forms of CC. Does your champion have CC? Are the lanes overextended? A common misconception is if your laner is getting pushed in, then the enemy laner would be overextended which would, in turn, make this lane "gankable". The issue with this is that they probably can move or set up the gank because they have too many minions under their turret, and if they go for the set up, they risk losing the gold, possibly exp, and could flat out die. Every situation is different. There is no straight answer.

Next, let's discuss the enemy's pathing. Most junglers start bottom. That is just the reality. You get a better leash and you don't have to put much thought into it. Select champions might want to start blue buff, like Evelynn, Hecarim, and Amumu. Some junglers tend to 3 camp, like Lee Sin, Elise, or Vi. Others tend to full clear like Shyvana and Master Yi. The hard part is recognizing what champion your playing against. You are NOT playing against the "player", but rather the limits of each champion. If you could go top lane to gank a Riven, or hold mid lane, you should hold mid lane. There is less variance in this play and the gold is guaranteed through farm.

Finally, let's talk about you. Pathing is something that ultimately you have to practice. You practice this by playing the game. Every game is different and I could spend a whole lifetime explaining the different routes. This is something YOU get to do. Decide what is optimal and do it. Do not hesitate, execute the path and then evaluate it after the game.
