Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Flash is a safe bet


6.png Ghost is fine aswell, different playstyle (more chase than catch, you have to be careful about your position). I'm used to play with Flash but you can definitly play with ghost.


11.png Smite is obvious for jungle


Anything else is not appropriate.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity Tree :

 Fury : attack speed > ability power

Double edged sword : the best one, the others are useless for jungle

Vampirism : Both are OK but i think vampirism really helps to sustain in the jungle

Oppressor : You always have a slow on the enemy, even more after your 3116.png so it's better.

Piercing  thoughts : AP > AD


Fervor of Battle mastery 2016  is the strongest for mid / late game.


Cunning Tree :


Savagery : helps you clean the jungle

Runic affinity : as you farm a lot in the jungle, having this bonus time of the buffs is really great

Merciless : bonus dmg + you don't need mana

Dangerous game : can save you after killing an enemy with your ult on to survive any dot / possible enemy coming


Alternatives :


Thunderlord's decree is OK if you want to play a burst AP kayle with 3100.png and 3089.png if you are against squishy targets with high damage, to essentially kill them before they do



In any way i think that cunning tree is better than resolve tree, each mastery in that tree is good (merciless, dangerous game...)

Skill Order


kayleR.png>kayleE.png>kayleQ.png>kayleW.png

or

kayleR.png>kayleE.png>kayleW.png>kayleQ.png


Anyways, you max kayleE.png then you can choose between maxing kayleQ.png or kayleW.png next.


When to max W over Q?


When you need sustain because you have to stay for a long time without backing to base, when you plan on sieging turrets or when you or a teammate particulary need movespeed

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    normal start

Core Items

    1st, blue is reliable, red if they have tank / no need movespeed
    4th : guinsoo if you are ahead / ruunaan if you need some dmg quickly
    5th perma slow
    2nd get it if you do attack speed build
    6th one of those
    exemple full build attack speed
    3th, you need it

Situational Items

    you need MR
    magic pen / against tank
    did not try yet, could be great
    if you snowball, no need to tank
    alternative burst AP build

Starting Items

As Kayle you should almost always go 1039.png and 2003.png

Core Items


  • 1416.png is the best for kayle, the mobility it gives really helps to put maximum damage with your kayleE.png, the 1412.png can be an alternative if the team has no mobility and you need the -20% damage by the smited enemy
  • 3115_32.png is absolutely core on Kayle. 
  • 3124.png is extremely powerful item, you deal tons of damage with it, at this point you can 1vs1, anyone except fed snowballing champs, now with 6.24 even stronger
  • 3116.png is an excellent item on Kayle. With Rylai's your attacks will slow enemies for 40% and with all your attack speed you can essentially make them perma-slowed. Plus, it has HP that makes you a bit more tanky, less chances to be instant killed before you can even ultimate

Boots:

  • 3006.png The best DPS boots for Kayle right now. Solid option if you like to splitpush or shred faster. They'll also help you stack up 3124.png faster.
  • 3009.png  got nerfed, still ok but not my first choice
  • 3020.png The boots that will give you the most burst. If you wanna build with 3100.png and 3089.png


Situational Items

So let's assume you're already using up 4 slots for 3006.png3115.png3124.png3116.png

Magic Resistance Options:

  • 3001.pngI personally really like Abyssal on Kayle. The Magic Resistance Reduction aura has higher range than your whole kit so you'll always be in range to apply it if fighting, so it's very strong and slot efficient when building it
  • 3091.png is the preferred magic resistance item of choice for 10.png right now. Attack Speed means you stack up 3124.png and Fervor of Battle mastery 2016 faster and since you already have so much attack speed in your build it means the magic resistance shred and extra magic resistance given on hit stacks up really fast

Other situational items :

  • 3100.png can be good to burst squishy targets

  • 3135.png is an item I  pick up if more than one enemy is stacking Magic Resistance with items like 3065.png and/or 3102.png

  • 3089.png  can be taken as last item if you don't need to tank more
  • 3157.png if there is multiple assassins in the enemy team

When to pick Kayle jungle Back to Top

  • You have strong lanes that you think won't need much ganks (example of safe/strong lane, 236.png/201.png)
  • The enemy jungler is also a farmer kind, you don't care, you will destroy him anyway.
  • When need a lot of AP dmg in your (ad top and mid) and possibly protect one of your teammate (like 238.png)

Why pick Kayle Back to Top

  • If your team survives early game, you can solo carry the game
  • 10.png is a simple champion for beginners players
  • Very fast clearing jungle, you can clean camp while walking to the next one after your nashor's tooth

What to do during the game Back to Top

! REALLY IMPORTANT !


SPEAK TO YOUR TEAM. Really. It makes a big difference, tell that you won't gank much, that you have a good late game, tell them to ward, warn them about possible ganks by enemy jungler, keep cheering up AND NEVER FLAME.

You may not survive the early if you just farm without saying a word. If you see your teammates die, do no think you can do nothing about it.

WARD ! Ward for your teammates, get pinks.



You gank to kill only when you're sure to kill; otherwise you farm. You can also "gank" to help your teammates to back, put some pressure or burn some summoners spells and take turrets. As soon as you get 3115.png you can push really fast. 
Do not think that a gank is only to kill, you can do really many things when ganking.

Jungling Back to Top

Smite golems is good to helps you jungle early game. Always focus the big monster, you will kill little ones with your kayleE.png.


Kite the monsters !   Especially buff early game, don't stay still, attacking without moving. With your kayleE.png turn in circle and do not let it attacks you much.

Try to get at least 650g at your first back. You get it by doing both buffs and 2 camps.
