If Kalista enters a movement command while winding her basic attack or Pierce, she will drive through that direction when she launches her attack, dashing a short distance. The distance traveled scales with bonus movement speed.
Additionally, Kalista begins the game with a unique item, The Black Spear.
The Black Spear - Active: Kalista offers a pact to an allied champion. Should they agree, the item is consumed and binds them together, turning the target into an Oathsworn ally for the remainder of the game. Kalista requires an Oathsworn ally to utilize Sentinel's Soul-Marked and Fate's Call.
If Pierce scores a kill, the spear will continue onward, passing all Rend stacks from the dead victim to the next enemy it hits.
Active: Kalista commands a soul sentinel to the target location within range, gaining sight in a ~450-length cone in front of it. The sentinel's sight is obstructed by terrain and brush. Upon reaching the target location, it will return to a point within ~1400 units of cast location. The sentinel will perform a total of 3 laps, including the first two lengths. The sentinel is vulnerable from behind and will die if attacked twice by an enemy champion or once by a tower. If the sentinel spots an enemy champion it will scream and stalk them for the next 4 seconds, revealing them for the duration.
Kalista stores a charge of Sentinel every 90 / 80 / 70 / 60 / 50 seconds, and can store up to 2 charges.
Active: Kalista rips all spears from nearby enemies, dealing 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 (+0.6 per attack damage) physical damage and slowing them by 10 / 18 / 26 / 34 / 42% for 2 seconds. Rend's damage is increased by 5 / 9 / 14 / 20 / 27 (+20 / 23.75 / 27.5 / 31.25 / 35% attack damage) for every spear beyond the first that Kalista ripped from them. Rend deals 50% reduced damage to epic monsters.
Killing an enemy with Rend restores 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 mana and refunds the cooldown.
During Fate's Call, Kalista's Oathsworn can right-click a target location to dash there, stopping at the first enemy hit, knocking up all surrounding enemies and landing themselves at their maximum attack range from the target.
Questions About Kalista
Crits on wierd ADC's
So, for these champions how do crits work? How do Infinity Edge Crits work? I figure for something like a Jinx Rocket Launcher or Senna Relic Cannon Crit, It would take the AD ratio (110 or 120) and just double it (220 or 240). I don't know tho....
Lethal Tempol is Good For kalista ?
Would Devourer stack Kalista's Pierce passive twice?
Kalista jungle probably isn't a good idea, but if you can stack spears faster, that would be pretty strong.
Where is the Passive Target assist on Kalista?
Kalista's jump used to show you where you were headed. I don't know exactly when it stopped, but it's just gone now. I reset everything on my side, but it was still gone. I didn't see anything in the patch notes about it though. Am I missing...
Runaan's Hurricane seems like a no-brainer on Teemo and Kalista....
So why do barely any guides say to use it? It makes both these champions much more effective (E stacks for Kalista, poisoning 3 targets at once with Teemo). Is there some reason why it's not as good as I think on these champs? Because right now I...
How is Runaan's Hurricane viable on Kalista?
The past few games I've played with and against a few [[kalista]]s, and all of them rushed [[runaan's hurricane]] as their first or second item. Someone told me it's the best item on her since its applies [[rend]]. I'm a tad confused on the logic...
First Item on Kalista?
Hey guys, I was wondering what you were building first on Kalista. I have seen rushed IEs, BotrKs and even Boots. I am currently sticking with BotrK but most guides say lifesteal isnt good on her.... I really like BotrK because of the %...
