Evolve order?

Kha Zix Q evolve gives Kha Zix 50 bonus range on his Q and 60% cool down refund if the enemy target is isolated when you use Q on them (only versus champions)

I recommend evolving Q first on Kha Zix for the strong dueling power spike at level 6
Kha Zix W Evolve makes Kha Zix W split into 3 spikes that fires in a cone, if enemy is hit by 1 of these spikes they will be slowed for 60% if the target is isolated when hit by one of these spikes they are slowed for 90%

This insane AOE slow gives insane amount of utility for you and your team and can help you chase enemies down, kite enemies etc.

I recommend evolving W second on kha zix at level 11
Kha Zix E evolved will give you longer range on your leap and will reset on kill/assist this ability is really good to evolve when really fed where you can jump in oneshot someone and reset jump out again super fast

I recommend evolving this ability at level 16 or at level 11 if you are really ded in the early game (10+ kills)
Evolving your ulti will give you 3 charges of invis instead of 2 and each invis will last for 2 seconds instead of 1.5 seconds so total time of invis with normal R is 3 seconds and with evolved R is 6 seconds

Evolving ulti is only good in high elo where people understand how kha zix isolation works I therefore don´t recommend evolving R unless you are high elo (Diamond 1+) if you are high elo you should evolve your ulti at level 6

In season 11 riot changed duskblade´s passive to now only reset on kills instead of on invis which is a direct nerf to R evolve

Kha Zix Runes
Domination + Sorcery

Dark Harvest Dark harvest works really well with Kha Zix since Kha Zix is the type of assassin that can kill multiple people in a fight therefor proc Dark Harvest multiple times

Sudden Impact Kha Zix has multiple ways of proccing Sudden impact with E and R Therefor Sudden impact is really good on Kha Zix

Eyeball Collection Since you are an assassin you wanna get a lot of kills and while you get a lot of kills you might as well get bonus AD for takedowns

Ravenous Hunter Ravenous hunter now gives you healing on abilities and auto attacks, Kha Zix can get an insane amount of healing since he does a ton of damage and with this sustain you can go in kill someone heal up on some minions or jungle camps and be ready to fight again

Absolute Focus Absolute Focus is great since it gives you more ad when you are above 70% hp so try and always be above 70% hp before you go in for a kill or a 1v1 since it will increase your burst damage output

Gathering Storm is good on Kha Zix in case the game goes late game, every 10 minutes you get more AD which gives you a little bit on scaling that you otherwise wouldn´t have, Kha Zix is by no means a late game champion, but with gathering storm you are a little bit stronger in the late game in case you end up in a 30+ min game.

Note: You can replace triumph with if the enemy team has a lot of cc

Red smite vs Blue smite

Since red smite reduces 20% of damage taken from the target you are smiting and you deal burn damage to them you wanna take red smite vs damage dealing junglers and assassin junglers
Blue smite gives you instant true damage and a slow so you wanna take blue smite vs tanks or matchups that you will win (I will mention which match up to take which smite into later in this guide)

Blue smite is good for oneshotting/burst dmg

Red smite is good for dueling

Here is an overview over which smite to go for versus each champion
If there is an X in Red smite take red smite in that match up
If there is an X in Blue smite take blue smite in that match up
If there is an X in both red and blue smite it means both are viable options
For more detailed version check out my yt video:

Tips & Tricks for Kha Zix

10 tips & tricks for kha zix video

Kha tips part 1:

1. Passive unssen threat reset when ever going into unwarded bush
2. You can Tiamat + Q mid air if E is evolved
3. Your Q gets 50+ bonus range when evolved
4. Your Q is extended when mid air if E is evolved
5. Whenever kha is in ulti he is ignoring unit collision which means he can´t be minion blocked
6. Kha Zix W evolved gives sight of enemies
7. Your passive also slows which means your combo will look like this: aa + passive with slow + Q
8. Your ulti can cancel targeted abilities such as Darius ulti if timed correctly
9. Flash will cancel your E jump so use Flash then E not the opposite way around
10. Your Q is not an auto attack so you can still use Q on things such Jax E

Bonus tip:
Animation cancel on W after you have landed with e

Kha tips part 2:

11. Use R for most of your engages instead of E, only use E if it´s a guaranteed kill and you have E evolved
12. Control wards doesn´t reveal you in your ulti
13. Use the following combo in team fights with kha zix R > Walk up > AA > W > Q and then E away if they hard engage on you
14. Duskblade no longer reveals vision so it´s important to use sweeper when looking for a flank
15. Be aware of enemy items and summs and track them before going for kills as kha zix since if you are fed you will have huge shutdown gold on you and enemy team can bait you into jumping into them and just use a summoner spell to end up killing you

S11 Jungle path

This is the fastest and healthiest jungle clear for kha zix jungle in season 11

You wanna start with jungle item and refillable potion

Starting on blue buff clear:

1. Blue
2. Gromp
3. Wolves
4. Raptors
5. Red
6. Scuttle crab
7. Full clear Krugs
Starting on red buff clear:
1. Red
2. Blue
3. Gromp
4. Gank or reverse clear Wolves
5. Raptors
6. Scuttle crab
7. Gank or Krugs

Best jungle clear for kha zix jungle video:

Remember you can already solo drake at lvl 4 or 5 after first back aslong as you have jungle item refillable and preferably a long sword , also grab either red trinket or control ward for the drake pit to make sure enemy team doesn´t have vision of you doing the drake.

Same goes for rift herald as soon as it spawns 8:00 minutes into the game you can solo it. So get the objectives whenever they are free for you to take.

You wanna go for ganks whenever they are possible and you can pick up a free kill

You can also replace doing krugs with invading or look for a gank since kha zix is slow at clearing krugs
Back to Top

How to gank as Kha Zix?

Try to gank your laners who has cc, since kha´zix has no cc in his kit except for one little slow in his passive

If enemy laner has flash up:
Try to come up behind the enemy laner
Go in auto attack with passive for slow
Use Q on the enemy to burst
USe R to become invisible and reset your passive and then auto attack to proc your passive extra damage and slow again (do this twice, combined with your R and Q)
Use W while in close range of the enemy to gain heal back
Use E after enemy flashed to keep on being in range with Q and auto attack

If enemy laner doesn´t have flash up:
Use E to instantly be in range of the enemy
Use Q and Auto attacks for damage
USe R to become invisible and reset your passive and then auto attack to proc your passive extra damage and slow again (do this twice, combined with your R and Q)
Use W while in close range to gain heal back

How to play Kha Zix Jungle

So how does Kha Zix Jungle work?
How do you play Kha Zix Jungle?

So first you wanna copy the runes from this guide

Then you go into a game and while in champion select and loading screen, you starting thinking off, what laners are gankable?

you do that by watch the match ups and see if your laners has cc and if enemy laners has any type of dashes.

When you made a plan for what laners you should gank you just follow the plan and if anything changes try to think ahead of time, what objective should I get next, can i predict where the enemy jungler is etc.

Then you wanna be doing my clear and just looks for free kill ganks pre 6 if they are avaiable, if you can´t gank just keep on clearing for lvl 6 and get drake and rift aswell if possible

Then recall and start looking for 1v1 on the enemy jungler or enemy laner

Once you have a few kills and you are lvl 11 and have duskblade you are now ready to oneshot squshies

I will give more examples. ideas and go more into detail on my stream over at so if you wan´t a high elo mindset and try to carry games as a jungler and control almost the entire game, feel free to come in to my stream and say hey can you go more into detail of what your mindset is in a game.

How to play Kha Zix in Team fights

How to play Kha Zix in teamfights depends on if you are fed, even or behind

If you are fed you wanna try to look for a oneshot on enemy backline (mostly enemy mid laner or ADC) in order to oneshot enemy backline you wanna either wait for your frontline engagers to engage on enemy backline and you follow up with your E Q AA combo, but if you have weak engage you wanna look for a flank where you go either from the side or from behind where you go in with your ulti, become invis (use ghostblade if you have it) get in range with your evolved W to slow enemy backline and then either walk up to them with AA Q or use your E Q AA combo on them if they are isolated

If you are even you can either try to look for a flank and oneshot enemy back line or you can stay together with your team and use your evolved W to slow enemy frontline and kill the enemy frontline together with your team and once you have killed enemy frontline you can jump into enemy backline and kill them for free

If you are behind you just wanna stay together with your team and use your W to slow enemy frontline so your team has an easier time kiting the enemy frontline.

How to win laning phase and or how to win jungle (better jungler wins)
Macro/objective control where to be on the map, when and why
