Summoner Spells Back to Top

Hi summoners! I'm FullMetalCancer, a master OTP Kayle. I'm also an indy developer IRL. You can download an app I made which helped me to climb the ladder : LoL Stalker.
I also made a fun quiz for item memorization : Item Challenge

Allright let's start with summoner spells:

4.png FLASH

4.png is a no brainer. Kayle pushes her lane a lot so she is really vulnerable to gank, picking 4.png can save you. Also 4.png is really usefull to all-in a carry in late game teamfight as this champion is all about positionning and kiting. Think Kayle playstyle like an ADC.

12.png TELEPORT

You can pick 14.png if you want to improve your lane power but this guide is not about winning your lane and hope your teamates will do the same, it's about to carry THE GAIMZ. To climb the ladder, I prefer running 12.png, by far. It allows you to save a fail move on botlane, gank with a deep ward (ask your mates in early game), split push late game (Kayle is great split pusher), comeback to your lane if bad things happened and get those precious CS, homegard engage mid/late game, backdoor a tower, an inib or even the nexus... Teleport gives you map presence, map presence + map awareness gives you elo, this is simple!

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Let's talk about the keystone mastery:

As 20?cb=20151103094518&format=webp has been nerfed in preseason 7 the two best masteries for Kayle are 20?cb=20151103094742&format=webp and stormraider's surge.

First you have to know that when Kayle auto attacks with judicatorrighteousfury.png, it's both an auto attack and a spell which means you proc 20?cb=20151103094742&format=webp in only 2 auto attacks, or with a judicatorreckoning.png and an auto attack. It's really handy in lane to harass your opponent each time you get the cooldown (30s). But as I said, this guide not about winning your lane :D

Kayle scales really hard in late game, you know it's one of those HYPERCARRY. That's why I prefer playing with stormraider's surge. It allows me to kite extremly well and be able to dodge those annoying cc while playing ultra agggresssive.

FEROCITY:

20?cb=20131121235650 > 20?cb=20151114180556 attack speed is good but I prefer doing more burst damage on my spells to proc stormraider asap
Fresh blood because of the damage but consider picking 20?cb=20121215080152 vs hard lanes
20?cb=20131121235900 > 20?cb=20121215075345 this mastery helps you a lot for csing
20?cb=20140220112024 is my prefered one here. Battle trance can be good but I really want to proc stormraider's surge asap

CUNNING:

20?cb=20131122000732 < 20?cb=20131121235724 easier last hits especially with AOE dammage of judicatorrighteousfury.png
Assassin for the damage but  20?cb=20131122001006 is really helpfull to sustain a hard lane
20?cb=20131122000021 > 20?cb=20131122000839 but you can take one point in 20?cb=20131122000839 to smooth your mana regen if needed
20?cb=20151103094738&format=webp > 20?cb=20121215075721&format=webp
Intelligence to reach 35%cdr very fast (10% with runes 20% with nashor tooth)
Stormraider's surge OFC

judicatorrighteousfury.png > judicatorintervention.png > judicatorreckoning.png + judicatordivineblessing.png : Max judicatorrighteousfury.png for the sustain damage. judicatorintervention.png whenever you can. Alternate with judicatorreckoning.png and judicatordivineblessing.png according to the situation.

kaylepassive.png : is the reason I like to play attack speed Kayle. You stack the debuff faster, and considering you are using a 3085.png, you stack it on multiple targets. Your opponents will take tons of damage!


judicatorreckoning.png : Really handy to slow a target before slashing his face. It also procs 1 stack of kaylepassive.png and deal some decent damage.

judicatordivineblessing.png : Seriously, this spell is too strong. You get a nice heal, but you also get a very nice boost in movement speed. Use it to sustain in lane, use it on yourself to catch up a prey and slash its face. Use it to run away, to save a teammate, use it on that friend 75.png to allows him to ONE SHOT that annoying ennemy 96.png.

judicatorrighteousfury.png : Your bread and butter spell. The on hit effect adds some strong dps. The range is really good and it deals aoe damage which is great to push a lane or wave clear. Be carefull of the dead time tough. When the effect fades, the last auto will hit but not the effect.

judicatorintervention.png : Here it comes. The game breaking spell. The spell which allows you to CARRY ALL THOSE 1V9 GAIMZ!!! If you cast it on the right time, you can completly change the outcome of a teamfight. When you lose that 50 min games and you are blaming your teamates (I know you do it), ask yourself this question: with a better use of my judicatorintervention.png, would I have been able to carry that game? There should be a stat after the game to mesure the total damage blocked by this spell, I assume it should be over 10K damages, maybe more. The goal is to SOACK UP the maximum damages, on you or on your rambo 56.png39.png254.png who is diving 1V5. The key is to know when the ennemy team will commit on a target and blow everything they got to shut him down. When all teamates died, when you are the only one left, when all enemies are hitting you midlife, when YOU ARE 1V9, this is your moment, cast this bubble in your face and rekt your opponents with your massive attack speed Kayle.

Important thing to know, it costs 0 mana! Many opponents (even in high diamond games) ignore this and will try to all-in you when you are oom. Punish them for that damn mistake! :D

The 1056.png2052.png2052.png starter is the best for Kayle.


Rush 3006.png. As Kayle does AOE damage you will often push your lane and be camped by ennemy jungler. Since recent up, this item now gives your 35% attack speed. If you feel comfortable go for your best friend 3101.png, it's really one of the best items for Kayle. I'm so sad you can't stack it though :'(

Anyway your first 2 items should always be 3006.png and 3101.png. In some match up you might delay 3101.png for 3123.png. This item really helps against massive sustain champions like 8.png or 50.png or even 122.png.

If you're having hard time on lane don't hesitate to buy a second 1056.png and put one or two extra points in your judicatordivineblessing.png. AP poker champs like 34.png or 115.png or 134.png are difficult in early game.

Then finish ASAP your 3115.png. It got all stats that Kayle needs, IAS, CDR, AP, on hit effect. Focus on farming this item because Kayle ealy game is very weak. She needs this to enter the game.

Then you have to start building your  3124.png. Starting with 1043.png then 1026.png and 1037.png.
When you get your 3124.png, usually by 23 minutes mark, you are really REALLY strong. Abuse this power spike, push your tower, make rotations, make teamfights happen, call for drakes... 3115.png and 3124.png has a good synergy because full stacked 3124.png double procs the on hit of 3115.png.

After this, you have many options. There are several good items for Kayle to consider. You can go defensive and buy 3140.png to counter that annoying 4.png90.png19.png69.png etc... You can go for more burst and utility with a 3089.png or 3135.png vs MR tanks (utility because AP improves your heal power and speed up power). Or you can build sustain damages and abuse stacked 3124.png with 3091.png. I really like this last choice especially when I need some magic res because 1057.png is now part of 3091.png. Don't try to rush those items though, buying 2139.png when you know important teamfights will happen is essential too. You can also go for a 3116.png to kite those annoying tanks 78.png57.png48.png3100.png is a good choice if you need burst. It also caps your CDR to 45% which is really comfortable to play with.

Usually, if you are already ahead the game is over at this moment. But if it is going to lategame, you have tons of options. Look who is fed and adapt with the items I proposed you before.

3085.png is really good as 5th or 6th item. You will be an absolute machine gun in teamfight and you can save many lost games carrying 1V9!

Don't forget to get your 3363.png also and for the love of god, buy these 2055.png!!!!

Your final build should often looks like this :
3006.png3115.png3124.png + pick 2 of those 3091.png3085.png3089.png3135.png3100.png + 1 defensive item like 3116.png or 3140.png or 3026.png

You need to be awake. Any tiny mistake in your positionning will cost you the lane. Harass her but never go all in, you will lose even if she is 20% hp and you are 100%. She can one combo you if she is good. When she waste her Q, harass because her E won't be enough to reach you. Keep track of flash cd.

About me Back to Top

I've been playing the league since the beta and the first champion I picked was Kayle (true story ^^).
Yet I spammed 84.png mid to reach 2k elo during season 1 and abused 28.png mid to stay at this level in season 2. It's only when Riot introduced the league system and the new item 3085.png that I've decided to start theorycrafting and try hard 10.png to get my first official diamond ranking. During season 4-5, I switched from my mid role to become a main jungle and get diamond 5 both seasons with a small burst to diamond 2 using only 79.png in jungle.

During season 6, after spending lots of time in dynamic ranked with friends, I've decided to try hard Kayle and climbed the ladder from gold 3 to diamond 5 in only one week. How did I do that ? I hope this guide Will help you to understand the secret to do the same soon. Nowadays I finally reached master tier playing only Kayle mid and top.

kkk.png

Also in real life, I'm an indy video game programmer. I've made an app called LoL Stalker to scoot my friends and some pro Kayle players. You can download it on the apppstore and google play.

I've also made a quiz game about LoL items called Item Challenge. Don't hesitate to give them some love too if you liked this guide :)

Laning Back to Top

I like to put pressure on my lane so that I can help my team. I abuse judicatorrighteousfury.png to push minions onto the ennemy tower. If my opponent is melee, I harass him a lot, playing with tower range to hit him when he comes for a cs. When you do that, you have to be very careful about gangs because the ennemy jungler will punish you. So use wards, and adapt your playstyle according to info you have. If you see him botlane, you can be agressive (or maybe use your tp to counter gank him). When your lane is pushed you can help your jungler to invade, you can tp and save a move, you can farm wraiths or check ennemy blue. That's why I often push my lane. But sometimes, things went bad and I have to play defensive and cs under my tower. When farming, be aware than you deal aoe dammage so don't miss cs because of it. Learn to get multiple cs with one auto attack. Also try to keep judicatorrighteousfury.png off if your jungler is coming for a gang. You don't want to become melee in the middle of the move. The dead time of judicatorrighteousfury.png is a real pain in the ass, knowing when to cast it to avoid becoming melee during a teamfight is what make the difference between good Kayles and god Kayles (we all know there is no bad Kayle).


If you're having hard time in lane, don't hesitate to take 2 or 3 levels of judicatordivineblessing.png to sustain vs 268.png115.png134.png34.png or even buy a second 1056.png.
When you are 6, you can use your judicatorintervention.png to trade with your opponent. For example, when you know that 103.png is casting ahriseduce.png or 7.png is casting leblancslide.png, activate your judicatorintervention.png at the very last moment and trade her.

TeamFight Back to Top

Position yourself between your frontline and you backline so that you can help both of them casting judicatordivineblessing.png to speed up and judicatorintervention.png to save the day! Play HurriKayle like an adc, when you see some room to dps, go for it. AVOID CC! It's really important because if you die with your judicatorintervention.png, that really sucks! You have to always keep an eye on the ennemy focus, so that you can annihilate their burst with your judicatorintervention.png. Also, often look where you adc is, because he is the best target for your judicatorintervention.png and your judicatordivineblessing.png. You can bait a bit by mispositionning yourself and cast your judicatorintervention.png at the last moment, it works really good at platinum elo. Playing HurriKayle is easier with a big frontline so ask for some tanks in champ select.

Theorycrafting Back to Top

Now it's time for the crazy stuff: judicatorrighteousfury.png + 3085.png


Basically, for Kayle it's a ~100% aoe range auto attack item. Here are the maths:

assuming a level 5 judicatorrighteousfury.png ON:

Direct target : ad + 60  + 0.25 * AP + 15
= 75 + ad           + 0.25 * AP
Surrounding targets : 0.4 * AD + 60 + 0.2 * AP + 15 + 0.25 * AD
= 75 + 0.65 * AD + 0.20 * AP

As you can see it's almost the same (I hope I did not make a mistake). Did I say the damages are hybrid? :D

Now if you add those cute little swords 3115.png+3091.png you get some nice additionnal on hit effects:
15 + 0.15 * AP + 40 magic dammage for both types of targets.

Don't forget your key mastery, I guess you see now why attack speed HurriKayle is a beast...

SO QUEUE UP, AND GET SOME FREE ELO!

Thx for reading, and sorry for my english :)
