I've been playing Kennen for a while but I couldn't figure out which is the best rune set for him.
The guides I found in the site suggest very different builds, can you help me?

At the moment I'm using:
- Flat Magic Penetration Marks
- PerLevel Health Seals
- PerLevel Magic Resistance Glyphs
- Flat Ability Power Quints

I've seen guides that suggest Spell Vamp Quints, others with Energy/5sec Seals...

You'll probably want Armor seals and MR glyphs.

HP/lvl seals+MR glyphs for mid works too.

I can control it pretty good most of the time, but when September ends, I just cant hold it in anymore. Whenever Im outside I see my brothers and sisters being chopped into soup, coffee, donuts, cake, drinks, bread - ppl even cut human faces into their skin, making a mockery out of their noble appearance. When I see things like that I cant control my pumpkin urges anymore. My natural instincts kick in. I then sit down motionless, while getting bright orange." - Morgana L

I know EvilDice (very good kennen player) uses energy/5/lvl seals. Spellvamp quints are quite nice as well.

Besides that, do what searz said :P
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!

I actually have no idea why anyone would use energy runes O_o

Kennen has zero energy issues, despite the fact he has no quick regeneration like Flurry or Shadow Dash.

This. The runes that are at the opening post should work like a charm :)

I'll try to merge your suggestions:
Marks: Flat Magic Penetration
Seals: Flat Armor or HP/level
Glyphs: Magic Resistance (flat?)
Marks: Ability Power (flat?)
Right?

Most of you do not recommend energy/5 or energy/5/level Seals, but what about Spell Vamp Quints?

Spell Vamp quints OP. :D

No really, Doran's Shield + Transmutation + Greater Quintessence of Spell Vamp makes it impossible to force you out of lane.

Please. Don't. Take. Doran's. Shield.

Especially not in mid.

Depending on the level of your spells, Kennen usually has barely enough energy to get a QWER combo IF he gets the refund from E. Sometimes that initial combo is enough, but it is possible to run low on energy if you start using spells after your initial 4.

And don't give me the "learn to manage your energy" speech. The same argument can be made for casters who build any mp5. More regen means more opportunities to do damage.

Now I've never tried the runes so I can't say from experience how helpful they are. Evildice seems to think they're worth the slot. If you haven't tried them, don't be too quick to shoot them down.

Someone is forgetting the power of Doran's shield mid Karthus!


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.
