Summoner Spells Back to Top

   In 90 percent of cases 4.png14.png are better with Kassadin mid. Ignite helps you to get a kill more easily in early game.  14.png is very usefull to dominate your opponent you will be able to burst down your match-up after 6.


  4.png12.png are also good summoners spells especially if you are playing toplane but still possible if you are mid.
 Teleport can be good if you can't kill your match-up. You can do strong ganks or counter-ganks with Teleport and have a easier laning-phase. 

It depends of your playstyle.

4.png  is essential to survive of ganks before your 6 and for get a kill/escape/gapclose longer etc.

  Here it's a bit special, the Q level 2 permits you to harass your opponent then max the E is better (90% for 1 second slow when maxed!)

  You can also max the Q you will have a better harass in laning phase.

  Maxing the E is better because you have a strong slow, a good waveclear but it depends of the match-up.
I'll clarify which spell is better in matchups sequence.
 
 The W reset the auto attack timer so to maximize your damages you can do AutoAttack + W.

 You can take the E lvl 3 too against AD mid like Yasuo,Zed etc...



You can also use that against AP matchups it depends of your playstyle : you got more poke by maxing your Q but you are stronger in TF by maxing your E.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Probably the safest start on Kassadin. It gives you a insane sustain and you need this sustain because you will be poke a lot.
    A good item for dominate in a easy match-up
    I don't like this start tbh but it can be good versus harass with auto attacks like Lulu.
    My favorite starter to play aggressive in laning phase, it also gives a big sustain you can upgrade it to mejai if you're ahead on confident.

Core Items

    The Rod of ages is the item you will want to do everygame. It gaves you tankyness, ap and mana. get it ASAP
    Zhonya's Hourglass is a core item on Kassadin especially if you are not too ahead you will need it to temporize during a teamfight.
    It gives you tons of AP, and AP scales very good with Kassadin (0.7 AP Ratio on the Q and the E, 0.6 on the W)
    Indispensable when carries got MR
    Read the description
    The lich bane add an insane burst on Kassadin's combo!

Situational Items

    A pretty good item and not bad on Kassadin, it gives a extra burst and it can be used many times in a trade.
    The Morello is a strong item on Kassadin it gives 20% CDR a huge amount of AP and it restores 20% of max mana when you get a kill or an assist. It's a huge reset of mana when you kill someone.
    I don't really like the tear if you play midlane but it's still a good item if you are playing toplane, it depends of your playstyle.
    Good item for snowballing but it's more risky now. Only cost 1050 golds if you built a Dark seal
    If you need a defensive item...

  Kassadin has multiple choices of itemization, I'll show you first the most classic way : 


 -Choose your start depending of your match-up : 2041_32.png in the most cases.
 -RUSH 3027_32.png, you need this item ASAP for start to stack it.
 -Get boots 3020_32.png  3158_32.png care to don't overstack CDR ! If you play with CDR per level runes and with 3165.png you can take
3020_32.png if you don't have CDR items it's better to get 3158_32.png because now the CDR is very good on 38_64.png.

 - If you are sure you will build a 3165.png you can build an early  3108_32.png.
 -Now you have to choose if you have to teamfight now you will need 3157_32.png . If you are ahead or you don't think you need to temporize you can get one of these items : 3089_32.png 3165.png3100.png
3100.png if you need to burst down someone.
3165.png if you need CDR and to do longer teamfights.
3089.png is good to snowball if you have some advantage .

  - For your 4th item choose a item depending on your last choice (  3157_32.png3089_32.png3174_32.png ) or if carries already have MR you can build a 3135_32.png
Don't forget to upgrade tear in 3003_32.png  if  you choose a tear.
-Now a 3100_32.png  can add HUGE burst on your combo but if carries start to build MR, go for a 3135_32.png.
 - Last item get 3100_32.png or 3135_32.png finally . You can take a 3026_32.png  or a 3102_32.png if you want one defensive item.

Don't forget to buy 2055.png often (care to ganks pre6) and get a 3363.png at level 9 it's very usefull !
When you are full build or you think you will do a final fight you can buy a 2139_32.png

VS

Ahri

Medium

   Try to dodge her poke during lanning phase and spam your Q on her.

The return of her Q deals true damages so you can't shield it.
At level 6 you have to dodge her kiss or her Q to win the trade so try to shift on the sides.
  
  A good combo against her is : let her use her Q on the wave, Riftwalk on her, shift on the sides directly, E (Force pulse), W (Nether Blade), Q to shield her W.

  Normally you will win the trade, but care if you don't have mr runes and if she got an 3001_32.png she will deals huge damages on you.

Really easy match-up, take 1056_32.png if you are confident. You have to deny her, use your Q when she use her Q. Use your W on her when she wants to last-hit. You outrade her easily.  Take your Q level 2 to poke her then max your E. 

At level 6 you can burst her if she is not ahead.  
Don't forget that your Q cancel her ultimate so normally she can't kill your 1v1.
Don't let her roam and get kills, push and pressure her or follow her if she try to move.

Pros and Cons Back to Top

pros-and-cons_6354749_lrg.jpg


    Pros : 
-One of the best scaling AP champ, huge lategame
-Insane mobility (especially at level 16)
-Rarely oom if you play well
-Many different build path for differnt playstyle
-Pretty easy to farm undertower
-Great with some CDR
-Good escape post 6
-Can poke
-Can outsustain many champions
-High AP ratio and base damage

   Cons :
-Need to scale a bit
-Really gankable pre 6 
-Weak versus AD matchups (especially at the toplane)
-It's hard to combine roaming and farming
-Teamfights might be hard if there are too much tanks
-Really need 3157_32.png to teamfight if you are not too ahead

General combos Back to Top

                             Before 6

     When you are not level 6 you will need to suprise your opponent to kill him :
 If he is very low and he is playing safe you can 4.png + E + Q + Ignite  (around 350HP). 
 If you can also do 4.png + W + E + Q + Ignite  if you have the range.
 If you need more extra burst you can reset your auto-attack timer with your W. (AA+W)


   In this video you can see I don't have my E (I have my Q lvl 2) , Ahri wanted to last hit and I saw an opportunity to kill her, I did my Q then I flashed through her charm and I tried to auto-attack + W her.
Here I failed I canceled my first AA a bit too early but it's ok I had enough damages to kill her.

(sorry for the bad quality, I only have the replay on my phone :p)
  

When you are versus something like Ahri, Xerath you need to avoid their CC's, you can do it by flashing through the spell or on the side.

Laning Phase Back to Top

   Start to poke your opponent with your Q, spam it and trade HP with him, you will have more sustain than him.


   Take your W at level 2 and spam it on minions if your match-up is a range. Don't forget to use the reset auto attack timer of the W to deal more damages.
    
    At the level 3 you can take a second level in the  Q versus AP match-up or up the E versus Yasuo, Zed etc...
Spam your W it has no cost  and try to have the right timing on your Q to shield the damages of your opponent.
Like when Katarina will use her Q, try to land your Q at the same moment !! 

 Don't overpush or the jungler will gank you and you don't have any escape pre-6. 

 You can kill your opponent easily if he is out of sustain and if you still have your flash you can Q + Flash on him + W + Ignite + E
 If he has less than 350 hp you can kill him easily.

  At level 6 you can get out of many situations, don't spam your R, wait after 2 stacks if you want to stay on lane.

Mid game Back to Top

Get your 3027_32.png ASAP  

 Now you can push your wave easily with your E and your R then you can maybe gank bot or top if someone is overextended you have to punish him.   
  If you have to teamfight don't go too deep if you don't have flash.
 
  Use your Riftwalk intelligently don't waste it ! You can use it to push the lane if your opponent is missing.
In a trade try to use your Rift to avoid an ennemy spell or a CC.
  You have 2 choices, you can keep farming on the middlelane or you can start roaming to kill the botlane or the toplane (prefer the botlane because 2kills are better and you can get a drake).

 You can gank the botlane even if it's pushed, with Kassadin you can avoid wards or the Rift Scuttler's buff.
