[S12] How To Play Kai'sa Got to Master (AD/AP)

By JT Andrew
Mythic Items
Kraken Slayer
Kraken Slayer It's always pick for Kai'Sa. because Kai'Sa needs more attack speed for her passive Second Skin. Kraken Slayer gives you a lot of true damage this is good against multiple tanks.
Galeforce It's viable mythic item for Kai'Sa. because Galeforce gives you bonus ms per legendary item's you buy. Galeforce it's also good against a lot of cc champ. example: Pyke, Thresh, Lux Etc.
Luden's Tempest
Luden's Tempest It's viable mythic for Kai'Sa. because AP build for Kai'Sa is OP This is good no matter which lane you going in mid or bot. Luden's Tempest gives you bonus ms after your abilities hit enemy or minions and gives you bonus magic penetration this is good against multiple tanks.
Everfrost it's viable mythic item for Kai'Sa. because when you use Everfrost, you can rooted the enemy and kill it this item it's good against: Zed, Master Yi Etc.
Viable AP Item's
Always Manamune First If You Want AP Build On Kai'Sa. because q Icathian Rain is important to strengthen first because you can quickly cs to buy more Item's. So this is prioritized because Manamune can upgrade to Muramana.
Nashor's Tooth
Nashor's Tooth it's always get for Kai'Sa. because Kai'Sa needs more attack speed and magic damage for her W Void Seeker and it's also good in the standard build because Nashor's Tooth has bonus magic damage on-hit.
Shadowflame It's viable item for Kai'Sa. because Shadowflame gives you bonus magic penetration and reduce all enemy shield. Use Shadowflame against multiple tank.
The Collector
The Collector it's also good in AP Build because of the execute passive of The Collector this is good with your Q Icathian Rain,W Void Seeker to fast kill your opponent. buy The Collector after Manamune, Berserker's Greaves, Luden's Tempest, Nashor's Tooth.
Rabadon's Deathcap
Can you buy Rabadon's Deathcap for the last item. or you can buy it mid game. but you buy it after you buy Nashor's Tooth. because the bonus attack speed is more important than the damage of your W Void Seeker. After Full Build Can You Buy Elixir of Sorcery for bonus magic damage.
Viable AD Item's
Phantom Dancer
Phantom Dancer it's Good against squishes example: Mordekaiser, Sett, Blitzcrank And other Champs that need to dodge and abilities to kill. Phantom Dancer gives you bonus attack speed and movespeed this is good for sides step technique to kill your opponent.
Runaan's Hurricane
Runaan's Hurricane it's really good in teamfight because of the Runaan's Hurricane's passive. because of the passive of Runaan's Hurricane you can stack a lot with your passive Second Skin. and the best thing about this item is that it has movespeed and high attack speed.
Lord Dominik's Regards
Lord Dominik's Regards it's also good. because every game always needs armor penetration. this is good for overpowered tanks example: Nasus, Mordekaiser, Thresh, Volibear Etc.
Wit's End
Wit's End It's always need every game. because Kai'Sa needs bonus defense item's like Wit's End. what's even better about Wit's End is its passive bonus magic damage on-hit this is good against mages. example: Akali, Mordekaiser, Seraphine etc.
Infinity Edge
Always get Infinity Edge for higher critical strike chance or damage. can you build Infinity Edge of you have at least 2-3 critical strike Item's for bonus 35% Crit Chance.
Mortal Reminder
Mortal Reminder is always need Everygame. because some will use healing items's or champions with self healing example: Soraka, Yuumi, Aatrox etc.
Mercurial Scimitar
Get Mercurial Scimitar against cc champ example: Mordekaiser, Malzahar etc. this is good against mages like Morgana, Lissandra amd other cc champ.
Blade of the Ruined King it's viable legendary item for Kai'Sa because this is dueling item. this is good against melee and tanky enemy and gives you bonus sustain and little mobility after Blade of the Ruined King passive active.
Guinsoo's Rageblade
Guinsoo's Rageblade this item is viable legendary for Kai'Sa because this is AoE item's. because of Guinsoo's Rageblade Kraken Slayer passive active with 2 auto's with Guinsoo's Rageblade. but if there is no rageblade 3 more auto's are needed to activate the Kraken Slayer's passive. so Guinsoo's Rageblade and Kraken Slayer are the best combination for squishy enemies.
AP Kai'sa you need to know
When You Play AP Kai'sa You Must Be Able To Shoot Advanced And Better First Kill The Marksman Of The Enemy For When In A 5v5 Battle They Don't Have Free Hit Because The MM Is Gone And The Second Is Their Support So That No One Will Support Them So AP Build Can Be Because His W Void Seeker Is Far The Range When It Hit Will Rereduced Your W Void Seeker Will Be Reduced By 77% Its Good If You Are 5v5 Battle The Enemy Won't Notice Where You Attack And Where Your W Void Seeker hits And Unless You Have A Vision You Are Going Through It Will Be Avoided By The Enemy And You Should Not Approach The 5v5 Clash Because You Are The First To Kill The Enemy Because You Are A Range And You Should Not Be Aggressive In This Build Because Your Range Is Long Unless You Use ADC Build There You Will Come But You Must Have Support
AD Kai'sa you need to know
The Good With AD Kai'Sa In Her Passive And Autos Kai'sa Passive Activate Faster Due To Attack Speed ​​Item's But Kai'Sa Passive Does Not Activate In Her Q Icathian Rain It Only Activates Her W Void Seeker So AD Build Is Also Good For Kai'sa Because Kai'sa's Passive Activates Faster
Recommended Precision Runes
+ Lethal Tempo
Lethal Tempo It's Good KeyStone For Kai'Sa Because Lethal Tempo Gives You A Lot Of Attack Speed And Range This Runes It's Good Against Poke Example: Caitlyn, Senna Etc.
But It's Just Good With AD Build To Activate The Lethal Tempo Faster But I Don't Know If It's Good In AP Build Try Lethal Tempo Maybe It's Good In AP Build But as long as you have Nashor's Tooth in AP Build.

+ Presence Of Mind

Get Presence of Mind For Bonus Mana Regeneration After Kill Your Enemy. Presence of Mind This is good for you to last in your laning phase and for your item after you back so that you can get a little bit more than your opponent at the bottom.

Use Triumph Against A Lot Of Sustained User Example: Ignite, Challenging Smite Etc. Because Triumph Gives You Bonus Health After Kill Your Enemy And Gives You Bonus Gold. Supports That Use Ignite Are Pyke, Amumu And Other Aggressive Players That Wants To Kill You Immediately.

+ Legend: Bloodline
Get Legend: Bloodline For Bonus Lifesteal Per Takedown Because Kai'Sa Needs More Damage Than Sustain Damage But Can You Add Blade of the Ruined King For Bonus Lifesteal And Physical Damage On-Hit
Can you Get Immortal Shieldbow For Bonus Lifesteal And Survive Burst And Gives A Lot Of AD Per Legendary Item's.
Legend: Bloodline It's Like Taste of Blood Because Of Lifesteal Per Takedown But Get Taste of Blood If You Want Hail of Blades Keystone.

+ Coup De Grace
Always Coup de Grace Just because you're in range and you can quickly reduce your opponent's health until it reaches 40% and activate the Coup de Grace But If You Have A Lot Health Stacker Enemy Get Cut Down To Easily To Kill Your Health Stacker Enemy's Example: Ornn, Sion, Mordekaiser Etc. And Get Last Stand If Your Build Is Full Sustain Damage Example: Immortal Shieldbow, Bloodthirster
Recommended Domination Runes
+ Hail Of Blades
Hail of Blades Is Also Good For Kai'Sa Because Hail of Blades Activates Faster Than Lethal Tempo That's What Makes Hail of Blades Different And Of Lethal Tempo But Lethal Tempo Is Very Stong When It Comes To Attack Speed ​​And Bonus Range But Use Lethal Tempo Against Poke Because Kai'Sa Has Short Range ADC She Is Not Like Other Long Range ADCs Like Caitlyn, Twitch, Senna Etc.
+ Taste Of Blood
Taste of Blood It's A Normal Runes For Kai'Sa Because Kai'Sa Needs More Lifesteal Because She's Build Is Purely Damage And No Lifesteal Item's Unless You Use Lifesteal Item's Like Immortal Shieldbow, Blade of the Ruined King, Bloodthirster.

+ Eyeball Collection
Get Eyeball Collection For Scaling Your Damage The Eyeball Collection Will Help You In The Mid Game Due To Its Bonus Adaptive Damage Per Takedown It's also good for getting ahead of your opponent when it comes to damage Eyeball Collection It's Very Useful In Other Things Like Damage And Scaling.

+ Treasure Hunter

Get Treasure Hunter For Bonus Gold Per Takedowns. And It's Also Good So You Can Buy Items Immediately And So You Can Gain A Little Over Your Opponent. But If You Want To Get Right Back To Your Laning Phase Use Relentless Hunter For Bonus MS Per Takedown. And Use Ingenious Hunter If You Are Going To Use AP Build Because It's Good When You Use Luden's Tempest And Everfrost Because Ingenious Hunter Has Bonus Item Haste Every Takedown And It's Good So You Can Use The Passive Of Your Mythic Item's.
More Secondary Runes
+ Magical Footwear
Get The Magical Footwear If You Want Free Boots Because It Will Help You Buy Of Damage Items Like Noonquiver For Bonus Physical Damage On-Hit. And For Free 300 Gold And You Can Immediately Buy Berserker's Greaves

+ Biscuit Delivery
Get Biscuit Delivery So You Can Last Long In This Laning Phase And So You Can Get More CS And It's Also Good When Your Opponent Is Aggressive. And The Biscuit Delivery Is Also Good To Save You Gold In The Early Game Because It Makes You Profitable In The Early Game.

I Recommend Transcendence In AP Build Only Because AP Build Kai'Sa Needs Ability Haste For W Void Seeker.

+Gathering Storm
Gathering Storm It's Viable For AP Build Kai'Sa Because AP Build Needs More Adaptive Damage Because AP Build Kai'Sa Is One-Shot Build.
