I like the look of Kayle but I'm not really sure where to go with her.
I like being a tanky/support class since I play with my friends and that sharing-is-caring stuff is awesome, but I'm tired of never getting kills :P

Is there a build someone could link to that gives me the best of both worlds?

Thanks! :D

I don't see Kayle very tanky, however I guess you could build an ap bruiser build:
Something like: Malady > Rylai's Crystal Scepter > Warmog's Armor > Abyssal Mask > Zhonya's Hourglass

Honestly Kayle is a VERY versatile champion and can be built in a variety of ways, from AP caster, AD carry, support, etc. She's a great champ.

Thanks for your reply,
I'm pretty new to the genre so I guess I'd better read up on some terminology because AP Bruiser and all that makes no sense xD

I assumed you could build each champion to your liking because of the runes but upon doing some research apparently all the champions have base stats so I guess I can't do -absolutely- anything...

Well I'd still like to be a DPS class with some team support then.
I don't know how much of my noobishness is gameplay, timing, lack of understanding other champions and all of those things that come from experience, and how much is actually just not really knowing the ideal progression of items and skill points. It seems like the only thing I'm good at is clearing minions quickly with splash damage... :|

Ah, let me explain. (here's a terminology list if you need more help with this)

a bruiser is a beefy (high health) character that also does good damage.
AP is ability power
so an AP bruiser is a beefy character that uses ability power to do damage.

The reason Kayle is good with this build is because her abilities scale with AP, meaning that when you build AP, you heal will heal more, and your spells will do more damage.


Another good champion that fits the criteria is Udyr. He does a lot of damage naturally, so one does not build damage items on him, but instead building tanky. He has a stun as well so bring plenty of team support, give him a try if you haven't already!

Oh maybe her damage has seemed unimpressive because I'm not buying consumable AP drinks?
It sounds cool to play a tanky DPS version rather than just purely trying to get Assists (not very exciting unfortunately...)

Is there a link to the 'ap bruiser kayle' build that goes more in depth? :)

That build is just something I made up on the spot. However, this site has many awesome guides if you'd like to look them up. It's also good to take note of the enemy champions and what they're building so you can build to counter them.

I've been using this build and getting a good amount of kills as well as being able to assist which is fun, my main question now is how to upgrade items? Kind of confusing not only because it seems like sometimes I can't upgrade even though I have the gold, but also if I'm trying to find specific items I don't really know where to look/what to filter by (Rabadon's Deathcap for example...)

I'm assuming I have to have enough inventory/gold, which is the case, it just sometimes seems like I buy one of the bottom branches and can suddenly get the next tier of upgrade and other times it seems like I have to buy ALL of the bottom branches before I can move up. But the game is pretty fast paced so that may be me just not being very smart under pressure :P

Why would anyone ever go AP Kayle? Even when supporting I will build with the focus on AD.

Usually:

Faerie Charm
Philosopher's Stone
Kage's Lucky Pick
Berserker's Greaves
Zeke's Herald
The Black Cleaver
Infinity Edge
Phantom Dancer
Guardian Angel

Sometimes the order can change. However Zeke's Herald is hands down one of the best items on Kayle.

While jungling you can start with Boots of Speed (or Cloth Armor if you are having trouble).

I never understood why people play Kayle as AP... Only her Q scales well but it scales equally well with AD.

Well I don't really know what I'm doing only that the AP build is working decently at a low level at least :P

Can you post a good AD build?

I did ^^

but you can do that build when things go right, if you are having trouble you should probably pick up an Aegis of the Legion after Zeke's Herald.
