I loved your guide from the begining.
I really loved the S7 Kassadin but i think the s8 Kassadin is funny to play , at least is funnier in early.
Gud guide 9.25/10

What do you think about Electrocute on Kassadin? Since he is an assassin this should help to on shot people.

I don't think electrocute is a guide on Kassadin since he can't really use it in laning phase before level 6. Also the other runes on that tree aren't as usefull as the runes on sorcery. By combining sorcery and inspiration you get the most usefull rune combination in my opinion. Thanks for your comment.

Any tips on how to deal with Zoe? I just had an absolute nightmare against her. I ended up surviving pretty well but I was stuck under tower and my CS was absolutely terrible.

Zoe is annoying in lane in my opinion you should stay behind your minions so that she cant stun you with her w and also she wont be able to poke you with her q. Just farm and poke whenever you can. You can ask your jungler for gank but dont worry at lvl 11 you can beat her. Thanks for your comment.

Hey shouldn't I take the stopwatch rune instead of boots since it gives more gold value, now that both are in the same row?

There are 2 reasons I choose boots instead of the stopwatch in the rune page. First reason is that it helps me buy Ionian Boots of Lucidity faster so that I get the 10% cdr faster and the second reason is that the boots rune give +10 movement speed which is a permanent stat. Thanks for the comment.

Hey what should I buy instead of Seraph's Embrace? For obvious reasons (It no longer being in game) I want to know a replacement for it! Thanks!

Aizenvolt (6) | February 14, 2018 5:01am
Seraph's embrace is in the game. You buy archange's staff and when you stack it it turns to seraph's embrace. Thanks for the comment.

Hey. What you think about aery runes for kassadin?

Aizenvolt (6) | November 25, 2017 1:05am
I think that if you want to pick sorcery as your main rune tree its better to pick arcane comet. It has better ratios, i believe aery isnt suited for assassin champs. Thx for the comment.

MostGod | November 26, 2017 5:28am

About the Anivia counter-pick thing. You can easily tell if her passive is up by clicking on her in-game (her passive's icon appears under the "buffs" section).

Also, Kassadin's Q doesn't silence anymore, but it still interrupts her ulti. This makes it very easy to counter her if you wait her ult out, as the only reliable form of damage she has against you is her Q. If she gets very aggresive and throws Q at you to poke post-6, you can easily go in for the kill and she has absolutely no way to deal damage for the next couple of seconds.

In pantheon's case whatever you buy isnt gona do much he has insane poke and you cant do anything in lane vs him. The only thing you can do is dont feed him much and trust me that is difficult if he is atleast average with pantheon. Now in zed's case you can buy seekers armor after tear but it wont make any big difference and it will get in the way of completing rod of ages that you should complete as early as possible. When you are vs a zed just farm and always keep your ult after 6 cause the moment he ults and you dont have your ult or flash on you are dead. Just farm and wait for gank also poke whenever you can with your spells except ult. Thx for your comment.

how about Smite ? i think it is pretty nice with kassadin, you can take chicken easily and you can steal baron and dragon easily and safely with ult-smite-zonya-ult combo

I am sorry but my build is made for a specific playstyle and smite doesnt fit that playstyle.

This guide is very good. It is unique, well thought, and it seems from the other members who comment that this actually works. I have my doubts about that excess cooldown reduction, but your guide is very good. Also a question: can't we use Morellonomicon, since it gives a hefty 20% cd, and we can replace Lich Bane or Ionian Boots with Luden's Echo for mobility and more burst. Thanks in advance! +1

Thanks for your nice words. About the excess cooldown reduction trust me i play kassadin for a long time and you dont lose anything from those 3 cd glyphs that give you 2.5% more cd. I have explained the reason i do this in the guide. Now for the other question. I prefer lich bane over morellonomicon(and there isn't any item in the build that you could replace with morellonomicon in my opinion except boots in late game) cause it gives you more burst damage with its passive and i think its ok to replace ionian boots with luden's echo but you rarerly play games that go this late that you will be able to do this. Hope i helped you with my answer.

hello, small question: how about bring exhauted?
have u ever tried???

Aizenvolt (6) | February 10, 2017 4:44am
No I haven’t tried exhaust but in my opinion kassadin doesn’t need exhaust. You don’t need the slow of exhaust cause you can catch them if they run and ignite is better in the laning phase because it gives you kill potential. If you think exhaust is better for you by all means try it spells are personal preference anyway.

Don't need Exhaust as much as Ignite. Exhaust has its uses, but for most part you burst your enemy and if they try to run you just use Riftwalk to finish them. There isn't much of a need to slow the enemy and there isn't much of a need to reduce their DPS because you are in and out fast. Ignite on other hand works great for securing kills, countering any enemy healing abilities, and winning duels.

I disagree with this guy not running Flash with Ignite though. His reasoning for that makes sense, but only from the view point of not using Flash offensively. He's too focused on its defensive uses, while I use it to start my snowball before level 6 and continue snowballing after. Being able to Flash and Riftwalk allows you to make plays that are very difficult to counter. Only bring it up because if you have Flash you definitely don't need Exhaust.

However when it comes down to it a lot of it is preference and play style. So try Exhaust if you want, it might work for you.
