Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Flash is a must, for obvious reasons. Kayle is an immobile champ and Flash lets her escape, or engage.

3.png Exhaust is what I take 99% of the time now, it's effective against almost every champ. It offers kill pressure, it can be used defensively, or it can help your team. Great to help mitigate your feeding bot lane which wil most likely feed every game.

6.png Ghost is what I used to take, it offers great kiting potential, and my build is all about kiting and showing people who's boss.

14.png If you want to use Ignite, you might as well use Exhaust, since it's just better for Kayle.

Masteries Back to Top

This is the standard Kayle masteries. Keystone should always be Fervor of Battle, since you'll be getting a lot of AS as well as a Rageblade, so anything else is just a waste.


Ferocity


Vampirism vs Natural Talent

I get asked about this a bit, since people seem to think Natural Talent would be better. I go Vampirism because a tiny bit of life steal can go a long way, but Natural Talent just feels lost.

Bounty Hunter vs Others


Bounty Hunter. End of.

Battering Blows vs Piercing Thoughts


Honestly, with this, you can take either one, since the build is roughly 55% magic 45% physical, if the enemy has, let's say, a Malphite or Taric, it might be beneficial for you to take Battering Blows instead.
Update: With the changes to Fervor, Battering Blows will be more beneficial to the build now.

E max first on Kayle is a given, if you aren't already maxing this you shouldn't be playing Kayle.


"Why the fuck would you max W second you autistic cunt?" You might ask. And my answer to that is; "To kite." My play style on Kayle is heavily based on kiting, and the extra MS from W, coupled with increased healing, helps win trades, or even pick up kills without needing to flash after them. Never been a fan of Q max second.

Each rank of your ult will increase it's duration, and reduce the CD, obviously max this whenever, but do pay attention to the fact it increases the duration.

Level up Q after everything else.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    100% of the time start this.

Core Items

    Standard core build.

Situational Items

Doran's Ring is hidden OP on Kayle, so hidden that everyone knows to start with it. I always keep Doran's Ring until I can afford to fully complete my last item, or if I can afford the Raptor's Cloak and actually need it.


Core Build


The core build is set in stone, mixing up the order in anyway will result in Satan coming up from the ground and hitting you with a big fat lose. YOU DON'T WANT THIS.

On your first back you want to AT THE BARE MINIMUM afford 2 daggers and T1 boots. Usually you'll have enough for a Stinger though, get this even if you don't get boots too, they can wait.

(I lied about not being able to mix up the order though, you CAN get Trinity Force first instead of Nashor's Tooth, but eh I wouldn't recommend this.)

Build order is Nashor's>Trinity Force (getting T1 boots whenever in between these purchases) > T2 boots > Rageblade > Rylai's > Situational Item (My favourite is Zz'Rot Portal, the MS you get + the defences makes diving towers the easiest thing in the game, the enemy will hate you.)

Update: With the additional base AS on Rageblade, you no longer need Berserker's Greaves and can go with  swifties for kite potential or defense boots instead.

Situational Items


A few situational items, in place of Zz'Rot, could be: Zz'Rot, Wit's End, Zz'Rot, Merc Scimitar, Zz'Rot
 3512.png  PRAISE THE LORD AND SAVIOUR, ZZ'ROT PORTAL.

You might be wondering- "But what about Hurricane? All the best Kayles buy Hurricane" Well, I have to say, Do you want to win, or do you want to be a bottom feeder? You obviously want to win, and show how alpha you are. Alpha Kayles don't buy Hurricane.

Irelia

Easy

A lot of people would consider this match up hard, and that's simply down to the build and runes. This match up is a 100% win rate for Kayle if you know how to build. - See item list on how to win.

VS

Jax

Easy

Jax isn't hard. Don't attack him directly during his E, attack minions nearby him. Q him and W yourself to escape his E, if he goes to Q on to you with his E up, ult it, he most likely will do most of his burst during the stun. Turn on him after you're unstunned.

VS

Lux

Hard

We're not talking about mid Kayle here, but I should put this in here. DO NOT FIGHT LUX. She has a huge range advantage on you, her burst is too much, even with your ult, you won't live unless you get the blind side on her.

VS

Pantheon

Easy

If you can ult his burst, you win.

VS

Riven

Medium

This is a skill match up. A well timed R and high level W will help against her burst, but remember her CDs will be low, so be wary about her being low HP, she can still kill you.

VS

Yasuo

Easy

Yasuo is the easiest champion in the game for Kayle to beat, I shouldn't have to say this really, but I see some people say this isn't super easy, so just putting it here. It's fucking easy.

VS

Zed

Easy

Zed is almost as easy as Yasuo.
