Summoner Spells Back to Top

12.png: Since the nerfs, I feel like this spell isn't required. It's really nice for splitting, or getting to lane early. The play making that it once provided has dwindled, so if i can i consider something else. This spell should almost always be paired with Flash / Ghost. If you're a lower elo player, consider ignite for kill pressure. 

4.png: I'd consider taking this 90% of the games on Kayle. Kayle's weakest point is in lane, which is usually a 2v1 from jungle pressure. It can save lives, and later make picks when you have Rylai's to slow the entire team. When i'm not taking this, I'm taking ghost.

14.png: Kill pressure vs squishies that won't be able to fight you, and sustain champs. 

3.png: An overall stronger form of ignite. removes 10 armor and magic resist, Kills their movement speed and ability to fight back. Use this in fights to the death. 

1.png: Take this vs teams with more than three champions that have hard CC. An example would be 89.png127.pngand an 22.png

6.png: Strong into Melee champions and chasing. Kayle's kit is really about kiting and keeping sustained dps with her E, or sticking to her target with her W. Ghost really enhances that, especially vs matchups like 122.png or 2.png.
21.png: Insanely low cooldown with lucidity boots, and masteries. It's a bit of a cheese summoner on kayle, but it's certainly viable vs burst. (You also have W and ult for burst)

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Fury: She scales with attack speed best. 

Double-Edged Sword: Overall stronger than feast since the buffs. You have stash + W for sustain.
Vampirism + Natural Talent: Kayle makes good use of both. Since the buffs happened, 2/3 seems to be the best combination. 
Bounty Hunter: Kayle's a mage that really scales well. 9/10 times i'd take bounty. If you're in a harder early game sort of game i might consider oppressor, but bounty hunter is generally better.
Piercing thoughts: If you're going AP, use this. if AD, use Battering. Both are fine. 
Fervor of Battle: Overall the best keystone you can take. It's late game is much better than TLD.

Savagery: Last hitting can be a pain. Savagery lets you get 105 cs at 10 mins.
Secret Stash Vs Assassin: Kayle tends to group or split. You problably won't be killing people early, and stash will likely be the better one most of the time. 
Merciless: Kayle doesn't have mana issues. She likes Damage. Win/Win.
Dangerous Game: Life saver. 
~~~~~~~~~
if going TLD:
Precision: Kayle works well off of double penetration. It's worth a lot more to her as a hybrid than CDR.
TLD: For matchups that are hopelessly short trades and extremely short skirmish team compositions. It's sub-par considering Runaan's + Rageblade + Fervor late game.

kayleR.pngkayleE.pngkayleW.pngkayleQ.png -> To push, and make early / Mid game skirmishing. W provides better stickiness / sustain / positioning for skirmishing. If you're top, this gives you the best 2v1ing ability, and the best roaming potential mid.

kayleR.pngkayleE.pngkayleQ.pngkayleW.png -> Burst based, or you didn't want to shove the lane. 
kayleR.png-kayleE.png> 3 points kayleW.png -> kayleQ.png  -> Generally safe skill progression. 

For trading: 
kayleQ.png -> kayleE.png : Each progressive AA hurts more due to her passive, and Fervor stacks. (Also procs TLD)
It's important to stand to make sure that you're kiting and moving between AA's in your kayleE.png and that you back off a few seconds before it goes down. 

kayleE.png 3x -> kayleQ.pngkayleW.png -> Kite. This gives more damage from the Q due to her kaylepassive.pngpassive shred. 

kayleR.pngUse this to block as much of a burst combo as possible. This requires understanding of other champions damage and combos. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Always start this
    Lane goal
    Kiting + Defense + Sustain

Core Items

    Mid Game Core
    Get if you're behind, or stomping. Great perma slow with E / Runaans
    Great second attack speed items

Situational Items

    CDR / Utility / Burst items. Have rune pages adjusted.
    Defensive options.
    Tank Shredding Items.
    Some items that make great offense / defense for dueling.
    Respective Damage Options
    Great for splitting! Keep a pink up!
  • 10.png should always start a 1076_32.png and 2003.png2003.png. She's a mage that makes great use of the items stats and mana regen. having  1076_32.png1076_32.pngs provides great early combat stats and sustain.
  • 3115_32.png And 3006.png  give the highest DPS mid game and late game. I always go nashor's, since it adds around 30 damage to her kayleE.png, and gives CDR for all of her abilities. It increases the base damage on her E by 15 and scaling to 45% which is massive. 
  • 3124.png Is an on hit multiplier item. It's usually considered a fourth item power spike because it's expensive, and  requires attack speed to stack it. It synergizes with every part of her kit.  It's an expensive snowballing item that i'd only consider when snowballing. 
  • 3085_32.png Does the exact same thing as 3124.png, but to an entire team. It procs her kayleE.png and all of her on hit effects for around a 70% damage increase to a group. It gives AOE and movement speed, so it's also not a bad waveclear item early or mid game. Consider getting this after 3006.png3115.png for an amazing team fighting phase.
  • 3091.png Mpen, Mshred, Onhit, and Attackspeed. Great vs double AP comps. It gives a good amount of tankiness and survivability mid lane and fits great with her kit. Overall, amazing with 3115_32.png3124.png3085_32.png
  • 3046.png  Attack Speed, Resist and movement speed. It's the single target cousin of 3085_32.png, and you can use it to duel people 1v1 better. Synergizes pretty well with 3124.png
  • 3139.png is an item i pick up vs comps with lots of CC. Stuff like: 75.pngwither.png25.pngdarkbindingmissile.png1.pnganniepassive.png17.pngblindingdart.png
  • Usually you have enough Mpen with kaylepassive.png and 3091.png/3001.png that you won't need to pick up a 3135.png. I'd rather pick up a 3135.png in burstier builds with 3089.png3100.png3135.png. (Example: 3006.png3115.png3124.png 3089.png3100.png3135.png) (Also, kayleQ.png-> kayleE.png max for this build)

VS

Darius

Easy
kayleE.pngkayleW.pngkayleQ.png Max. Stay out of dariusaxegrabcone.png and you win every trade. 
Rush 3006.png  or 3009.png. Run 6.png3.png against him if you can afford it. 

If he ever gets dariusnoxiantacticsonh.pngdariusaxegrabcone.png on you, you're pretty much dead. This matchup relies 100% on you being faster than him. 

Mid game, you can get 3116.png and laugh at him because he won't be able to move. 

VS

Fiora

Hard

Can't win if she's good. Her fiorariposte.png blocks your kayleQ.png and kayleE.png and slows your attack speed by 50%. Absolutely brutal to try and out do. You might be able to 4.png her fiorariposte.png and duel her, but even that doesn't guarantee victory. 


On top of that, she has fioraq.png to gap close onto you, and zone you with her vitals. combined with 3022.png you can never fight her. 

You can kayleR.png her fioradance.png to an extent, but she can still proc the vitals. more sustained burst damage than anything, is how i would describe it. 

Max kayleE.pngkayleW.png build  3116.png and 3085_32.png  and try to provide utility to your team. 

VS

Irelia

Hard

You win pre level 4, and you have to bully her then so that you have enough health and pressure to get ahead early. 


She wins after level 4 with her ireliaequilibriumstrike.png and insane burst. The moment you get behind, you'll cry in this matchup.

VS

Riven

Hard

Riven is a hard matchup for Kayle. This matchup is about positioning in lane, so that riven has to waste her spells gap closing onto you. To win this matchup, you need to max kayleE.png then kayleW.png


Push early, and if she wants to fight try and force her to fight in your minion wave. The moment she guns for you, press kayleW.png and back off so that she needs to gap close further. Then kayleQ.pngkayleE.png and return damage with a sustained trade and you'll win. 

At 6, you can kayleR.png her rivenfengshuiengine.pngriventricleave.pngrivenmartyr.pngriventricleave.pngriventricleave.png combo and return damage. 

Make sure to rush 3006.png  against her. Movement and spacing is VERY important.

If she gets a kill, She snowballs and you lose. Otherwise, you win.
