Ultimate Kai'sa - New Meta Guide season 11

By VuKing
Pros and Cons
+ Very versatile
+ Suitable for many team comps
+ Can be both a tank destroyer
+ Kai'Sa is very strong late game
+ Very strong when fighting in a 1 v 1 with no minions around
+ E- Supercharge and Ultimate R- Killer Instinct allows her to be independent in the lane
+ [Ultimate R- Killer Instinct can be used as a way to catch up and finish opponents as well, especially after they Flash or dash away from her.
- Is extremely item reliant
- Improper positioning or aggressive usage of her Ultimate R-Killer Instinct can get her killed
- Hard to play well

Second Skin (Passive) Kai'Sa's basic attacks deal bonus magic damage based on level. Her auto-attacks and W, along with nearby allies' CC effects mark enemies with Plasma for 4 seconds, stacking up to 4 items. The next attack on a full Plasma-stacked champion will deal bonus missing health magic damage.Upon gaining a set amount of permanent stats from items and stat growth, Kai'Sa can evolve the related basic ability after channeling for 2 seconds

Icathian Rain (Q) Releases a swarm of 6 missiles which evenly distribute among nearby visible enemies. Each missile deals physical damage.Living Weapon: Ability fires 12 missiles instead of 6.

Void Seeker (W) Fires a void blast in a target direction, stopping at the first enemy hit, dealing physical damage, and revealing them for 4 seconds.Living Weapon: Applies 3 Plasma stacks and refunds 70% of the cooldown if it hits an enemy.

Supercharge (E) Charges for the duration of the cast time, during which she is ghosted, gains bonus movement speed and can't auto-attack during the duration. After charging, Kai'Sa gains bonus attacks speed.Living Weapon: Gains Invisibility for 0.5 seconds

Killer Instinct (R) Instantly shields herself for 2 seconds and dashes to a target location near a visible enemy champion who has been affected by Plasma. The duration refreshes once the dash ends.



















Summoner Spells
Flash is always the spell of choice for each adc. It gives you the mobility you need
This is the basic spell when you go bottom. It can save you and your teammates' lives when needed
If the enemy has a lot of cc, take it
+ 72,99% Pick rate
+ 49.37% Win rate

Hail of Blades Hail of Blades helps Kai'sa duel very well. This keystone is by far the best one for Kai'Sa at the moment since it helps u proc your passive and deal a high DPS with your three attack proc.
Taste of Blood This rune allows you too trade well while healing a bit of amount back.
Eyeball Collection Eyeball Collection gives kai'sa attack power when Kai'sa joins the kill
Ravenous Hunter This rune is by far the best healing tool other than Bloodline since you cant really good bloodline in this tree. This rune helps you with trades in mid late game as it will help you heal up through your abilities and attacks.
Magical Footwear Choosing this allows you too not spend any gold on buying boots which in my opinion is the right choice since there are key items that you really need in early phase. So that being said, getting a free worth of 300 g is essenstial.
Biscuit Delivery Biscuits are really good for early laning phase since it gives u survivabilty and more chances too continue trading in lane whilst not wasting that much mana and hp
Axe Offense 10% Attack Speed
Diamond Offense 9 Adaptive (5.4 AD or 9 AP)
Shield Flex 6 Armor


Kraken Slayer
Build Kraken Slayer for damage. Kraken Slayer is fantastic for fighting and boosts your damage output immensely. This item alone is a huge powerspike.

Buy Galeforce if you want more mobility for Kai'Sa. At the same time, it also helps you to accumulate damage quickly in a short time

Immortal Shieldbow
Build Shieldbow to survive. You must build this item against team comps that will insta-kill you. It is only meant to keep you alive to deal damage. Otherwise Kraken Slayer is superior for damage.


The Collector
The Collector: Very strong for snowballing, cost-effective. Crit is great for the crit Kai'Sa build and a great 2nd/3rd item against opponents without armor.

Phantom Dancer
Phantom Dancer gives great sustained damage for teamfights since it gives a ton of attack speed. It also synergizes really well with Hail of Blades, as it’s passive triggers. Phantom Dancer’s movement speed also helps you stick on to opponents well.

Wit's End
Wit's End: Because of akshan's high attack speed combined with Rageblade it might be a good idea to build Wit's End What makes Wit's End good is that it deals bonus magic damage which makes a huge difference. You might ask yourself why that is a big deal Guinsoo's Rageblade gains 3 unique passives, one is has "15% Magic Penetration" the other is "Deal an additional 15 magic damage on-hit" and the third is of course "Every third basic attack triggers on-hit effect an addtional time" this makes it so you will deal massive amount of Magic damage on their tanks that might build full armor towards you

Infinity Edge
Infinity Edge: Won't be used in this build because of Infinity Edge Unique passive that counter Guinsoo's Rageblade passive. However, there is a build path that goes Kraken Slayer, Phantom Dancer and Infinity Edge which works really well also for akshan, giving his that big 3 item spike after completing Infinity Edge

Lord Dominik's Regards
Lord Dominik's Regards: In most scenarios, Lord Dominik's Regards won't be needed.However, if their team is really heavy armor reliant, such as Ezreal Frozen Heart ADC, Tank support, tanky Jungler and tanky Top laner, Lord Dominik's Regards could grow to be useful. On top of that it grants a great 35 pure Attack Damage boost

Runaan's Hurricane
Runaan's Hurricane: Gives a heck ton of attack speed for late game teamfights and essentially TRIPLES on-hit effectiveness when the enemy team is clumped up together.

Nashor's Tooth
Nashor's Tooth: As it provides a lot more magic damage on hit and also both your W- Void Seeker and E- Supercharge evolves. This build is great with teams that are basically all AD so the enemy team can't itemize against magic damage and can't afford to build any magic resist.

Zhonya's Hourglass
Zhonya's Hourglass as it gives good enough AP while also having an extremely good active. However if you believe that you are safe enough and don't have to go this item, then you're free to build a much higher damage item like Rabadon's Deathcap which will increase your magic damage the most.

Berserker's Greaves
Berserker's Greaves:This is the standard equipment of each ADC. It has hit speed, move speed. Too good for the price of 1100 gold


Guardian Angel
Guardian Angel:Is a really good item vs AD assassins. has pure AD that boost your damage and also gain a huge amount of armor. The unique passive is one of the most powerful item passive in the game. After the assassin used their ultimate on you they will need to kill you again but this time without it. By the time you get back to life their Assassin might be dead already. I recommand this item vs: Rengar Zed Kha'Zix Kayn Viego and Nocturne

Mortal Reminder
Mortal Reminder:Is a great item vs champions that rely on healing the 40% healing reduce up to 60% from Grievous Wounds make a world of difference. I recommand to buy this item only if they have fed champions on opposite team such as: Vladimir Darius Soraka Warwick Volibear Yuumi Viego and Dr. Mundo

Rapid Firecannon
Rapid Firecannon: Is the more defensive iteam. It increases Kai'Sa's attack range and some necessary stats

Rabadon's Deathcap
Rabadon's Deathcap which will increase your magic damage the most

Mercurial Scimitar
Mercurial Scimitar:AKA is great vs champions that rely heavy crowd control such as Ashe Mordekaiser , Morgana , Lux , Sejuani , Cassiopeia , Elise , Skarner , Malzahar , Another thing to note is that quicksilver works against Mordekaiser Realm of Death It also has a decent Attack Damage, Life Steal and Magic Resistance

Blade of the Ruined King
Blade of the Ruined King: Blade of the Ruined King is one of the core item for Kai'Sa It grants Physical Damage and Attack Speed which are both great stats, but the important is the passive and life steal from Blade of the Ruined King The passive grants her a huge damage boost combined with Guinsoo's Rageblade and the life steal from Blade of the Ruined King makes Kai'Sa laning much easier. The active is a crucial part of Blade of the Ruined King The active deals 100 Magic Damage to an enemy champion and steals 25% Movement Speed from the target for 3 seconds. The movement speed helps him in skirmishes and 1v1s vs melees by kiting and also grants him a higher chance to dodge certain abilities which gives an edge in the skirmish. The raw Magic Damage from the active is not too bad either, even when you are vs a range and nothing to dodge, it could still be useful as it is an instant cast.

Bloodthirster: Gives a bunch of AD and a whopping 20% extra lifesteal. As said earlier in the runes section, with Legend: Bloodline Kai'Sa gets up to 40% lifesteal! The passive shield gives you even more survivability in teamfights. If you get to this three item spike, you are essentially unkillable.
How To Play Kai'sa

Early Game

+ Play safe for the first few levels. You need time to come online and you shouldn’t be fighting unless you have a clear early advantage (like an engage Support).
+ Once you have a few levels under your belt, you can start to look for aggressive plays. You benefit from extended trades, so try to go for them frequently .
+ After destroying the bottom lane tower, rotate to the mid lane and try to take that tower. This will open up the map and give your team a gold lead .

Mid Game

+ Stay with your Support throughout the mid-game. If you move away from them, you will be an easy target for the enemy. Make sure you’re always near at least 1 ally.
+ Group and stay with your team at all times. Do not split push or avoid grouping unless you have a good reason to be away from them
+ Look for picks with your Support/Jungler to get kills and increase your lead. If you kill a key target, you could make the call for Baron.

Late Game

+ Once Kai'Sa gets three points in her Ultimate R- Killer Instinct she will have a massive shield and can reposition instantly if things go awry during fights.
+ At level 13, She will have two abilities wholly maxed out. This means her damage output with her Q- Icathian Rain and her peel potential with her E- Supercharge will be massive.
+ It is important that you stick with your team in the late game. Do not move around the map or go anywhere unless someone is with you.
+ Stand towards the back end of your team near your Support. Avoid walking too far away from anyone in the late game. Getting caught out will result in the enemy being able to push their advantage and finish the game.
+ Watch your positioning in the late game. Focus on kiting and auto-attacking the nearest enemy champion. Avoid walking too far forward so you do not get caught out and focused by the enemy
+ Use R- Killer Instinct wisely, or you will die. what you need to do in teamfight is live as long as you can
