The Only Kindred Guide You Will Ever Need

By UnaFlauta
Why and when to use Kindred?
Kindred is a very entertaining champ with a lot of carrying potential and if you are searching for a main, Kindred is a very good option. It is a champ with low pickrate and with lots of possible builds. Also if you want to build your road to diamond, she is the perfect option.

Now to the point: When to use Kindred. Kindred is a very safe option when your team needs more damage, and if you want to solo carry it is also a perfect option. With the new buffs, Kindred is now a safe pick, even if it is blind pick. She can win many matchups and when she is facing a counter doesn't mean she is going to lose, it is just that Kindred is not going to be able to shine as she always do against other champs.
First Levels
You have lots of options at starting the game. First of all you should look who is the other jungler and see if you need blue or red smite. If he is difficult to kite maybe you should buy the blue smite, if not the red one is a very good option.

Most people ask themselves, blue or red?, but there is a better question than that one. Where is my win condition? Kindred is very versatile, so he can adapt very well to the needs of the game. If you are at blue side and your top is the win condition then start red, then blue, then gromp and gank top. If the win condition is on botlane you can do exactly the same path but backwards. I prefer not doing a full clear with kindred because his lvl 3 is very powerfull and an early gank can be very usefull for your team.
Early Game
Kindred doesn't have the best early game, but with Press The Attack she can manage to do a lot of damage. At this stage you should just try to farm and gank if it is possible but try not to play agressive if the game doesn't require that.
Mid Game
At this stage you are starting to deal more damage and you can start fighting with a little bit more, for example if your teams wants to fight drake, kindred is now able to do it. Of course you should analyze if it is possible. There is not much to talk about midgame but you should continue farming and trying to reach late game.
Late Game
This is the favorite stage for Kindred, at this stage she deals tons of damage and with every build you should be able to carry, especially with runans you are going to be the principal damage in a teamfight and be very carefull of not dying because your team is going to die to.
Kindred can jump over some walls with her q, this is very usefull when for example trying to steal drake.

The ultimate of kindred can also save monsters like drake or herald, and that is perfect for baiting the other jungler smite when trying to steal drake
When to build:
When to use the Crit Build: You should build this when on the other team doesn't have tanks, this is going to help you a lot with bursting them.

When to use the Anti Tank Build: Obviously when the other team has tanks. Kraken Slayer, BORK, and Guinsoo's are the best buy for melting tanks, you will deal tons of true damage and continue having the carry potential, also Black Cleaver gives you more sustain because of the 400 hp it gives, and Lord Dominik's gves you a lot of armor penetration so it is perfect for melting tanks.

When to use the Anti Burst Build:
