Intro
Hey, thanks for clicking this guide! I am Zparkjow,and I thought I could shamelessly plug my twitch-stream here: twitch.tv/Zparkjow . But whats better advertisement than to provide a kick-*** guide?! Ive mained Kayn since his realese and I am a big fan of his Blue-form. Since the Red-form always overshadowed the blue one, I always thought of mixing runes and trying itembuilds out to make it better. So after a long League-break (which I would advise everyone to do so!) I picked him up again and got until Diamond 3 in Season 9, but I know there is much higher potential. I will try to update this guide a lot and also add a few example clips in here aswell, so stay tuned!
Game-philosophy Back to Top
When I look at Kayns strength I try to be very critical. In my Opinion he has a terribly weak earlygame, with the sole exception of having a good jungleclear. In the best possible case you get the time to fullclear your jungle while you can take a few safe ganks.

Pros:
+good jungle clear(he is no olaf, but hey!)
+most versatile champ in the game(considering the form-option)
+Insanely good for trying to steal Objectives with W-Smite
After acquiring form:
+most mobile champion in the game
+surivalist: can find many ways to live out of a dangerous situation
+hunter: once you have the idea of someone being separated from their team you can easily take them out and get out again

Cons:
-almost weakest early champ, requires laners to help in a lot of situations
-no hard-winning matchups
-Zhonyas hourglass exists
-"Long" animations, best way to avoid incoming damage is Bluesmite-R
-completely overshadowed by S+ tier junglers
-teammates never want you to go Blue-from, but we take it anyway
Pathing Back to Top
I wont say too much here, since theres much much better guides on pathing and such, all I want to focus here is a few strategies that I use for hard matchups.

Switching it up: never stick to only one starting point (e.g "wHy dOnT yOu StArT rApToRs"). You never know if your enemy tries to invade you, since champs like olaf and reksai can just walk into your jungle and snatch your camps away, and unless your team is responding there is nothing you can do but watch them and think about why you didnt pick a real champ aswell.
So what do we do? We play 5d-Chess and switch that **** up. You can start wolves and raptors on your own, but personally I dont like it. It is viable, sure. But that doesn't make it automatically the best option. If you have the feeling they will take your blueside after their red, you can just start at your own blueside and make them waste time checking if your **** is up.

And no matter which jungler the enemy is playing, you can always try very bold to just walk in and steal a dragon or baron! I will add a few clips of insane Objective steals soon so please stay tuned.
Teamfights Back to Top
Teamfights can be played like most assasins, you go in, go for the carry and make sure
you enter where they least expect it. If the enemy ADC is extremely fed, you could die before you even reach them(lookin at you, Caitlyn) so sometimes I would advise for a bold Flash-aa-W-Q-R and then prey your team is gonna turn the tide while your target and their support are panicking.

Thanks again for checking this guide out! Im open for discussing everything in here and I hope the Kayn community will rise once again!!
