now where Strenght of the Ages was removed, what do you think are good masteries for Kindred?
I am quite new in League (just playing a few month) and I were looking for a Kindred Guide, because I want to main her. Yours looks pretty nice to me, but now I dont know what to do with the masteries.

Hey, love the guide! It's really been helping me win early game. I've had a lot of trouble being relevant late game though, no matter how many stacks I have. I even had 14 one game, and even with my ult, GA and a Kayle support I couldn't do anything to the enemy. I even used my Q backwards, ulted, and then flashed forward so they couldn't be in the circle and I could keep attacking. I still went down. How can I be relevant late game? I put out all the damage I can but peoples tankiness and healing and shields just make me useless.

Also, do you think there's anywhere where I could fit in a phantom dancer or shiv? For the added movespeed, so people can't just walk away from me with a Sona E or a Nami heal.

I have some questions about your guide. First of all I know that you focus on making kindred tanky but at the same time to deal damage but I dont understand why you build them so different of the rest of the pro players. To begin with, pros dont ever use SotA, they go straight to FoB. Also, most players tend to build either malmortious or yoummu. I am a main Kindred and I have tried your build but to be honest I cant get the good early as using FoB and the pro players builds. I only get BorK if the other jungler has been taking my early marks. Also I want your opinion in something, I get sterak gage as third item if I have marks, no threatening ap from the other team and if im behind, what do you think of this? I always take runaan as fourth item because it gives me great wave clear and I can split push af. Do you think lord dominik is a great item on kindred or its passive is enough? Also I know why you take trinity since you explained it but again, this item is mostly never used by pros. What do you think of bloodthrister instead of angel? Im not saying your build doesnt work, I just want to know your opinion since you have much more experience in lol than me.

Hey! No worries for the questions I don't mind answering them at all.

All three trees have pros that use them on Kindred (FoB, TL, SotA). Korean pro, Longzhu Crash (arguably one of the best junglers in the world), almost always takes SotA. FoB is popular amongnst NA players I think mostly because of the NA Ego, as everyone wants to be the carry. Stastically, SotA is also the best choice with more than a 3% higher win rate. As guides are meant to help new players and assure victory I wanted to add in the easiest of the three to use, however all three are possible and very occasionally I will switch them (say I have an extremely tanky team and not a lot of DPS then I will go FoB). As for TF it's still a good pick and a lot of the Korean pro's still use it, however I am running test now to see the difference between builds, (I am strongly considering going Runaan's into a black cleaver). Itemazation changes almost every single patch and I haven't completely updated it for this patch yet but I will today so stay tuned :) also I would never take BT over angel unless I was significantly far ahead and had almost no possibility of losing and just wanted to end the game faster. SG just isn't worth it to me no matter the situation. LD is a great item but like I said i might be switching it up later today. Let me know if you have anymore quetisons :)
Kira5467 | September 27, 2016 3:11pm
Thanks for the advises. Yeah, I take FoB because I want to be the carry. I have learned a lot from RedKind a main Diamond Kindred that streams, check his youtube channel to learn a thing or two... I used to take SG because pros used to take it in the LCK but I almost always go with malmortious or yoummu if I had a great early. I think Runaan is the item I enjoy more and lord dominik if there are 2 or 3 tanks. Lately koreans are taking black cleaver but personally I dont think it is too good, I think is more a situational item. I personally dont like TF since many people say it is too expensive but I think it depends on how each person plays. Im still testing your machete and boots as your first item choice
Altimando | September 20, 2016 4:34pm
i like your guide , i've been trying to come back to kindred , i stoped because of those unbearable nonsense nerfs and i think your guide will really help me , i have some questions though , have you considered stearks,black cleaver,frozen mallet, phantom dancer(not a full build , as individual items ) ? it sounds weird i know but ive been seeing a lot of kindreds with it lately just wanted your opinion , your mastery sections show fervor of battle , but you say that STA is better. why is that?
i hope i didnt get confusing in this comment

It's always fun to see how people are passionate. Your guide is very good and I very appreciate the way you explain not only how to play Kindred, but also how to play Jungle. It doesn't change the fact that I hate playing jungle. By cons Kindred is still my favorite champions for many reason and i'm really sad they remove her Healing passive on her W, because it allowed me to play her in mid, my main lane, and i never lost a lane with her in mid, because of her sustain and the bonus damage it was giving. I'v also made a guide about Kindred mid, but i archive it because it's no longer a good option.
I know i already said it but your guide is very well done!
Zula Warrior (6) | September 13, 2016 12:59pm
Thank you so much :) I really appreciate it! The fact that you played kindred mid successfully is actually really impressive! Stay tuned as I update and make new guides and I hope you enjoy them as much as you liked this one :)
DemonicArchAngel | September 10, 2016 10:36am
this guide is really something else! haha! question though...i need tips on improving my kiting skills as i cant really time kindred's attack animation..any advice?
Zula Warrior (6) | September 13, 2016 3:40pm
Kiting is probably one of the most misunderstood and poorly executed Mechanic in the game. I actually coach quite a lot of people on how to do it properly for a good amount of time before they have it completely down. It's not too difficult as kindred because you have slows/hops, however, it's still comes down to your basic orb walking and using abilities between auto attacks. Some General tips I can give you are learning to use attack to click move and orb walking in general. The greater your attack speed the faster you have to orb walk. If I saw you do it live I could help you more, but without that it's difficult for me to give you an exact answer on what and how you specifically need to improve on.

Great Guide! Thanks again man for taking the time to teach me counter jungling techniques, shot calling, and overall game flow on Kindred. If you haven't played with Zula, i'd highly reccomend doing so. Later buddy.
GoodJobMan | August 30, 2016 10:08pm
i find building botrk takes too long when you can spend more gold on more useful items, like runaans or ghostblade
Darkcollins | August 27, 2016 5:28pm
This is an awesome guide! Very well done zula! You can tell A lot of work went into this and I can definitely vogue for this guy having played LoL with him for awhile. Keep it up man!
Terumz | August 22, 2016 6:55pm
Thanks for the awesome guide man! Glad I found it and found you too. Playing with you was a joy and I plan on coming back too once I get some more time on my hands! Haha those games were way too fun.
Zula Warrior (6) | August 22, 2016 7:36pm
No problem :) and ofc dude was hella fun, and we're always available for you so just stop by whenever you want to come back :) I hope I taught you a thing or two about Kindred in the process!

Hello! I was wondering is steraks gage would work in place of guardian angel.
Zula Warrior (6) | August 22, 2016 7:41pm
Not really, They are very different items made for very different things. Gage isn't going to stop you from dying as much as GA will. Another thing about SG is that it provides only health and no defenses, other than the shield (but that's really just like more HP, a lot of times with SG and kindred people will use their ult when their shield goes off and waste the shield. On top of that, SG doesn't stack with Maw if you build them together anymore. Those are just some of the reasons I kept the item off of my build.
eternal pk3r | August 23, 2016 5:48am
hm,is there any room for lord dominiks in this build?
TheExfear (2) | August 22, 2016 5:50am
Good job ! Been waiting for detailed guide like that, very informative, much alternatives in build. Waiting for the rest of the guide to complete :)
Zula Warrior (6) | August 22, 2016 7:45pm
Thanks a ton friend :) I'll finish the guide soon I promise! This is a really busy week with school/work, but when I have some spare free time I will definitely finish it for everyone :)
And once I finish I will be writing more so stay tuned! And thanks a ton for the graphics I mentioned you in my Thank you section :)
