Null Sphere


ACTIVE: Kassadin fires an orb of void energy at a target enemy, dealing magic damage and interrupting channels. The excess energy forms around himself, granting a shield that absorbs magic damage for 1.5 seconds.

This is the basic ability of 38_64.png. In 4.4 it got changed that the ability does not silence anymore. Now it gives a shield that absorbs magic damage. This is great for trading vs mages. You can also interrupt spells like 55_64.png ult with it.

Nether Blade


PASSIVE: Kassadin's basic attacks deal 20 (+10% AP) bonus magic damage on-hit.
ACTIVE: Kassadin charges his Nether Blade, causing his next basic attack to deal bonus magic damage, gains 50 range (200 total range) and restore a percentage of his missing mana. Mana restored is quintupled against champions.

Nerfed and not maxed second anymore. Also farming got ALOT easier than it was before because it gives passive damage.

Force Pulse


PASSIVE: Kassadin draws energy from spells cast in his vicinity, gaining a charge whenever a spell is cast near him, including his own spells.
ACTIVE: Upon reaching 6 charges, Kassadin can emit a pulse of void energy, dealing magic damage and slowing enemies in a 80º cone in front of him for 1 seconds.

Same as before now just does a bit less damage. Because w got nerfed so much e gets maxed second. This ability got nerfed recently now the slow is higher but it only lasts for 1 second. Max this vs ad mid laners.


Riftwalk


ACTIVE: Kassadin teleports to a nearby location, dealing magic damage to enemy units within 150 range upon arrival.

Got nerfed hard in 4.4, but still a very good ability and in max cdr you cant be caught :). Got nerfed hars recently, now the stack timer is 20 seconds from 12 seconds. This is a huge nerf to kassa.

VS

Ahri

Hard

She has very strong poke and can do it (almost) free when you go to farm. You can't really go to her because she can just charm you and kill you. Level 6 she has 3 dashes in short time and does alot more damage than you.

VS

Akali

Medium

Early game you can abuse her weak start and harash her as much as possible. Level 6 it gets trickier because you can't win a duel against her if she has all of her ultimate stacks. Try to ask for a gank and bait her to attack you.

VS

Diana

Medium

Harash with q. It is not a good idea to go melee trading with diana due to her shield and strong basic attacks. When she is level 6 try to dodge her q. Roaming is a good option for this lane. Also bating her into jungler gank is a good way to obtain a victory in this lane.

VS

Fizz

Medium

Melee ap champion. Harass him as much as possible early and deny farm from him. Care for his level 2-3 which are very strong. Fizz can kill you level 6 if you don't safe your ult for escaping. You can do anything you want when his ult is down.

VS

Katarina

Easy

Melee champion. Early game you harash her with your q and other abilities (melee champion). If you fight level 6 safe your q for cancelling here ultimate, that way you can easily win the duel. 

VS

Kayle

Hard

Her early game harash is very strong so start with 2041_32.png. She will push the lane to your tower all the time so try to take advantage of that and ask your jungler for a gank.

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

Depends on the lb. Just try to do as much damage as bossible lvl 1-2 and absorb her burst. Level 6 you can dodge/absorb her abilites and rape her. Try to push your wave to her tower early because she has to use abilities to farm under tower. Watch out for jungle ganks while doing this though.

VS

Malzahar

Medium

Malzahar has free poke at early levels. Just try to sustain as much as possible while throwing q at him. Level 6 you cant all in him so just try to roam. You outscale him late.

VS

Orianna

Medium

Easy lane. Your harash is pretty good vs ori but so is hers. Try to poke her as much as possible but don't forget farming. Level 6 you can try to dodge her ulti for a kill, but she has shields so it is very unlikely. 

VS

Riven

Medium
1029_32.png and 5. Early you just farm on tower. When you hit 6 try to do something. Roaming is the best option.

VS

Syndra

Hard

Start 2041_32.png and potions. Syndra is a lane bully with extreme burst at level 6. She can easily harash you when you try to cs so you need good early game sustain. She is also very good vs you in team fights due to her ult.

VS

Talon

Hard

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Should be a easy lane. You can win trades if you have e up. Try to spam your q almost everytime it is possible. Care for ganks pre 6, if tf lands a gold card on you it can result to a kill if you are too pushed. Level 6 it comes trickier. I suggest taking teleport to counter tf ult. You can also stop tf ult with your q.

VS

Veigar

Easy

His early game isn't that good because he has to use his q for farming minions. You can harash him pretty safely if you are taking notes of his cooldowns. His level 6 is pretty strong, but so is yours. Your mobility is a lot better so take advantage of that and roam.

VS

Xerath

Medium

Try to juke his q early and trade with your q. If he spams other abilities he quickly runs out of mana. Also very easy to gank early if you let him push. Level 6 you are stronger if he misses his q. Try to roam, but care for his ult which has a long range.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Start with 1029_32.png and 5. Earlygame play passive and try to avoid take long trades. Max e first because you can easily get the stacks for it vs yasuo (he spams e), also the magic shield is useless vs him. Rush zhonyas after RoA.

VS

Zed

Hard

Hardest counter for kassadin. Your magic shield does nothing and he can easily harass you while you try to last hit. Try to farm passively undertower. Take heal or exhaust if you think you need them. Also max e first.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

Hard early game poke. Take 2041_32.png if you think you need it. Ziggs harash is not easy to dodge but staying away from minions when not csing is a good way to avoid some of it. Level 6 you become stronger than him.

Why should I play kassadin? Back to Top

Pros:


-Very high mobility
-Massive late game damage
-Good for roaming
-snowballs decently
-can be tanky while still doing tons of damage (full ad comps prepare your butt)

Cons:


-takes some time to scale up
-not very much wave clear
-can be shut down in lane very easily
-gets banned too much

Roaming Back to Top

38_64.png is known for his roaming and snowballing other lanes. Try to roam everytime you can (lane pushed/opponent killed). Best place to get kill is of course the bot lane where usually two slow squishies try to farm. When/if you get kills when roaming to bot lane you can pick a dragon if you aren't too low. Syncing your ganks with your jungler to get the most out of them is a very good idea. You can take teleport to enchance your roaming.

Sometimes roaming can be more worth than your mid tower!!!!!
