League of Legends v1.0.0.145

Kayle
Righteous Fury
Ability Power ratio increased to 0.4 from 0.2

Kayle is a champion with a long and varied build history, wherein different setups worked better at different times. Over the history of LoL, optimal Kayle play has run the gamut from AD to AP to Hybrid and back again. Currently, Kayle is mostly seen and played as an AD ranged champ, viable in all of top, jungle and bottom.

However, as of last patch, the AP ratio on her Righteous Fury has doubled from +0.2 -> +0.4. This could be big news for Hybrid Kayle, although I still retain doubts as to the viability of AP Kayle post remake. What are your thoughts on Kayle at the moment?

P.S. Surge on Kayle is better now! :3

AD is still the best. It gets the most out of Reckoning, and it makes her scale incredibly. Hybrid tends to have mediocre stats both ways, so it can't really take advantage of either one. AP ... well, AP just sucks.

The AP ratios on Righteous Fury is pretty much a joke. For every 100 AP you get 40 extra damage, which usually will cut down to 30 extra damage with resists. The main use of it is to get ranged attacks, so it's mostly utility.

Surge is better now, but I still wouldn't run it over Ignite or Exhaust. It just doesn't have the same utility.

If I helped you, click that +rep!

Depends what you're aiming at. I personally will keep playing her hybrid because it favors her early/mid game, whilst AD is mid/late focused.

AP Kayle bursts hard, but it's not very sustained.

AD Kayle and Hybrid have similar damage, not counting crits. They're both fairly sustained damage, as well.

Depends on what you want, though I wouldn't recommend AP Kayle unless you've practiced a lot with her, it's not as easy as the other two.

I think that AD is the strongest. But on-hit is the most fun :D

Many thanks to MissMaw, LaCorpse, Xiron, Arcana3 and Joxuu for making me sigs!

Guinsoo's is a waste of gold in a pure AD build. Would rather have PD, crit Kayle is stupid strong.

Rageblade is fine for hybrid, but mostly sucks for all the other ways to build her.

Zeke's Herald or Hextech Gunblade? Also, she has more HP meaning that if you get CC'ed your chances of surviving to cast an ulti on yourself and wreck some are higher.

AD Kayle deals more damage, but trades it for death in 4 hits, like pretty much any AD
