New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

I like to go with this mastery page for all lanes right now. Oppressor over Bounty Hunter for a stronger laning phase and a safer alternative. With the buff to double edged sword and the nerf to feast, take double edged sword!!!

Aatrox

Medium

He can be tricky, just harass with autos then watch out for his ult, if he does, disengage with q and dodge his knock up, reengage once his ult is down. WATCH FOR HIS PASSIVE! If the bar is red it's up, if it's white, kill him.

VS

Ahri

Easy

Dodge Q and Charm and smack her like your Akon.

VS

Akali

Medium

Ulting her ult takes practice... and self cast for your ult on the space bar xD after that place a pink trink and kill her in her little shroud! THE RIGHTEOUS LIGHT SHINES!

VS

Alistar

Medium

ANNOYING HE JUST HEADBUTTS YOU AWAY

VS

Amumu

Medium

VS

Anivia

Hard

Farm under turret, and avoid harass. This is a hard one, get ganks.

VS

Annie

Hard

Calculating when tibbers is coming isn't the hardest thing to do, but it is the difference between death, and killing annie.

VS

Ashe

Medium

VS

Aurelion Sol

Medium

Get in his face to avoid aurelionsolW.pngbe sure to try for earlier trades as he will go for a q r w combo to chunk you when he hits 6

VS

Azir

Hard

Nobody really knows how to play against Azir... so in this watch out. If you are in attack range of his soldiers, you'll be killed quickly, instead take advantage early and wait till he's oom

VS

Draven

Hard

VS

Ekko

Easy

Lol first few levels follow your normal harass pattern, make sure to dodge q's and the when comes first items in lane (9-15 min) ult when he dashes with e if he has lich bane, this will negate his burst and most ekko's q immediately after, just dodge his easy to dodge w, and profit from putting him in the ground.

Evelynn

Ezreal

Fiddlesticks

Fiora

Hard

VS

Fizz

Easy

Just play smart and bait him, if he doesn't attack you auto him while he's on cd's. He won't engage if he's dead xD

VS

Galio

Medium

If you see him mid, call for ganks. The way galio plays is weird, and he builds lots of mr, hybrid or ap shred works best.

Jarvan IV

Medium

Jax

Medium

Jayce

Hard

I hate this guy so much

VS

Jhin

Wait out his 4th shot then rush him, ult his auto w q combo and try to deny him when he is using his first 3 shots.

VS

Jinx

Medium

VS

Kalista

Medium

VS

Karma

Medium

Dodge her attacks, especially the mantra ones, then smack her with Righteous Fury, she will just shied Reckoning.

VS

Karthus

Easy

Bam Bam Bam, he's dead

VS

Kassadin

Hard

Hybrid might do you better here...

VS

Katarina

Medium

Don't let her roam and you'll be fine.

VS

Kayle

Hard

Should this ever happen, the kayle with more experience will always win... make sure it's you.

VS

Kennen

Medium

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

Wait for the Q Dash combo to ult it, and dodge the chain if she all in's with that, then smack her to death or run. Harassment is key though, deal more than you take or game over.

VS

Lee Sin

Hard

He will win lane. UNLESS you dodge his q's or bait him with ult, he will most likely jump away though.

VS

Leona

Medium

idk here, as support, you can shred her for your carry, but she is still hella tanky.

VS

Lissandra

Hard

She's basically you... but with more mobility, armor, and health, but of her rotation of skills (blockable by intervention) she is useless. Kill her early, kill her often.

VS

Lucian

Medium

Meh dodge his attacks, and don't get kited.

VS

Lulu

Medium

This is more in Kayle's favor in my opinion, but I am more than a little biased. Don't underestimate her, dodge Glitter Lance, and smack her, get her to ult before you do.

VS

Lux

Medium

LAZERS, Smack her and dodge is the name of the game, boots are your friend.

VS

Malphite

Medium

You will win in lane, unless he is full ap, and he will be a issue later...

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Ult his ult, and you are fine... but the silence as well as how his ult works is going to get you, learn his timings and you should take advantage of all his counter play.

VS

Maokai

Easy

VS

Master Yi

Medium

bait with ulting alpha strike, and about 4 autos, giving you time to auto him until he meditates, preferably have ignite or exhaust to finish him.

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

VS

Morgana

Medium

Dodge her bindings and 4.png her ult if you want to live... 3157_32.png will also block the stun, otherwise black shield is annoying.

VS

Nami

Medium

Bubbles... F*ck bubbles...

VS

Nasus

Medium

D-Cane is not to be taking lightly. I even change my entire build if he gets too big with a 3151_32.png and 3135_32.png to shred him. 3071_32.png is ok too! If you are against him, punish him early, he will get a visage and you will cry... get a wit's end, or tp roam from there... alternately, you can grab more penetration early with 3115_32.png3135_32.png3020_32.png At the early game, deny him as much cs as possible by using your E and Q's be sure to have mana pots, you will burn through them quickly for a good cause.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

SO TANK follow nasus, but not as drastically

VS

Nidalee

Hard

SHE IS A B*TCH! Just "accidentally" step on one of her traps and ult once she jumps on you. 3:)

VS

Nocturne

Medium

His ult is predictable, but his fear is annoying, it can basically cancel your ult.

VS

Nunu

Medium

Depends on his build, and skill levels, you can easily ult his ult, and kill him while he sits there and takes it.

VS

Olaf

Hard

Oh boy... Oh that was a joke now laf at it xD

All bad puns aside, he will destroy you pre-6 and probs post 6 too, if anyone still plays him...

VS

Orianna

Medium

She's annoying... more to come

Pantheon

Rek'Sai

VS

Renekton

Hard

pre 3 and post 11 is when you are stronger, if lane is going even. try to farm it out, but if you all in him, prepare to burn some summoner spells

VS

Rengar

Easy

Once you have some items, and he has some items, and he jumps on you... press R, and kill him before it runs out xD

VS

Riven

Medium

Skill based

VS

Rumble

Easy

Dodge his abilities and kill him

VS

Ryze

Medium

DON'T DIE, THIS IS SO EXTREMELY SKILL BASED, RYZE CAN 1v1 ANY CHAMP, IF YOU ULT EARLY, YOU DIE, LATE, YOU DIE... On time, you have a chance of winning... but still, YOU DIE. So kill him before he gets going, cause his snare is a tuba and a half... whatever that means.

VS

Sejuani

Hard

Tanky and full of cc... your nightmare. Dodge as much of her abilities as possible, and hope you live, otherwise smack her on the way out.

VS

Shaco

Easy

He's so squishy it's hilarious. This is only a problem if he's in the jg. In lane tho make sure to have 3341_32.png if you don't RIP

VS

Shen

Medium

It's a waiting game to be honest.

VS

Shyvana

Easy

Smack Smack, DRAGON? ULT TIME, SMACK, Q, SMACK SMACK, LEGENDARY! or just dodge the dragon...

VS

Singed

Easy

He comes anywhere near you Reckoning, While you run away, Righteous Fury

VS

Sion

Easy

VS

Sivir

Medium

Spell Shield OP

VS

Sona

Medium

Bursty, but squishy.

VS

Soraka

Hard

... Silences aren't your friend.

VS

Swain

Medium

His sustain is strong, farm hard and you can still kill everything else...

VS

Syndra

Medium

Dodging is your friend in this skill based matchup. and ulting her ult.

VS

Tahm Kench

Easy

Never vs'd him, but the strat is the same, harass and look for a chance to kill. If he eats you he can walk you under his tower in the mid lane so careful early if you get close, dodge his q as it's a fairly thin skill. Louisiana fast.

VS

Talon

Medium

Without his silence, it's easier but I would still opt for 3.png vs him. His burst is high, and he's a slippery lil assassin.

VS

Taric

Easy

Gems

VS

Teemo

Medium

Q max is key here, his blind won't negate your burst and cdr will make that happen often, only issue is mana.

VS

Thresh

Medium

VS

Tristana

Easy

If you ult whoever she ults, she loses a lot of burst potential.

VS

Trundle

Easy

He will all in you, it's literally his ult, then you ult and kill him...

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

OMG HIS ULT... this is basically skill based, but his crit is insane, watch for his slow, and if he comes near you don't go in.

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

He has good burst potential, but shut him up early and watch for his roams. You'll be digging him a grave in no time ;)

VS

Twitch

Medium

Watch for his sneaks and roams.

VS

Udyr

Easy

Q him, kite with E, then if he sticks to you, ult and repeat hopefully he's dead, later though, he does become the Godyr... he will get you... he always does.

VS

Urgot

Easy

Auto him and dodge grenade.

VS

Varus

Medium

High burst ult first.

VS

Vayne

Medium

Condemn will get you, if used well by her. I suggest you ult when she gets her 1st proc on you for the silver bolts, they still stack while you are ulted, so when it runs out she will have no procs on you... and she'll be dead.

VS

Veigar

Hard

His stun... and ult... too stronk

VS

Vel'Koz

Hard

YOU ARE WAY SQUISHY AND HE IS WAY TO TRIGGER HAPPY... I have yet to do well vs Vel'Koz, but I win in the end... after a very long fight... ult his ult and auto him in his face.

VS

Vi

Medium

She ults you ult, she punch you q and kite, you kill her. Don't be afraid to 4.png her q.

VS

Viktor

Medium

He's strong rn, don't underestimate him, especially post-6

About Me Back to Top

I'm just another Platinum 10_64.png player who likes Kayle and wants to learn more about her. As much as this is a guide for you, it's a guide for me, combining all the information I currently have on Kayle. I consider myself decent with her in my elo, but still have trouble with using skills to the best they can be...  like Intervention. Though my credibility for helping to carry lower elo games is present with Kayle, Kayle isn't suited to carry low elo, such as any assassin 7_64.png103_64.png238_64.png but she can  help the carry in dealing decent damage. Kayle's ult usage is essential to her kit, and learning how and when to use it is what makes a Kayle player good or bad. To climb well with kayle you have to know the matchup and your own comfort level with her. She's not a champion you can pick up and stomp with every game.  That said if anyone has suggestions and/or ideas for the guide, please tell me. Feel free to leave a comment and I will reply when I see it.

See you on the rift,
<3 Kayle One Trick



Match History (if you wanna keep up with me ;) )

The State Of Kayle Back to Top

September 23rd

Kayle's ratio on E gives her a strong AP presence now, similar to the korean kayle build, Runaan's is viable again, she shreds armor and mr, her heal and movespeed buff are insane, and her q hits like a sion. It almost brings a tear to my eyes. She is strong mid game especially with nashors, greaves, and at least a NLR. She is good at most positions (adc is still extremely risky) and can really do well to carry now. If you and a teammate are fed, you will do very well, and it will be hard to lose. She's still very weak at lv 1 and in some matchups she's not a threat until lv 6. Fly now angels, let's ascend to the top where we belong!
<3 Max



July 11th

It's been a long time coming, but Kayle has been buffed. She is in a half-way decent position, and her damage is looking a bit better. One thing to look at is her JG potential. I am working on the new jg build including a runeglaive build I am currently testing on PBE. This buff is small, but it gives her a light at the end of the tunnel, maybe we can look forward to stronger games and better transitions from early to mid game. Late game Kayle has become a slightly stronger monster, and not much has changed. As well with the sudden shift in the meta, Kaye has become a stronger pick vs burst mid laners, and her ult has become all the more clutch for carries. Fly now angels, let's climb the ladder!
<3 Max



June 1st

Alright, right now is basically June, since this is the night of May 31, I feel like it's a time to reminisce on my matches seeing it's almost been a full year of league for me. Right now the position Kayle is in, puts her at a disadvantage for a lot of team comps, and after her nerfs over the years, she is weak than ever versus a lot of champs. Her ult is still very strong, and her kit is made to handle tanks and assassins, but her ratio's have been quite underwhelming and her scaling basically non-existent. Her E nerf (0.4 to 0.25) followed by nerfs to her base attack speed, and her attack speed scaling, set her very far back. It was fine in a meta with one tank and 4 squishies to destroy, but now she has 3 tanks diving her and a zed laughing in the background. I know this seems like a biased rant, but she is really in a bad spot right now. Sure if you play well and put in extra effort you can reach that point, but there's only so much you can do when everything that made you strong is weakened. I feel like her E ratio should be buffed slightly (0.25->0.3) and a small increase to her base attack speed (0.638->0.663). These are small things that I feel like will make kayle feel like the old kayle, but not overwhelm the enemy team to the point where they have to nerf her hard again.
Just a suggestion!
<3 Max
