12.png - best option for toplane

6.png - mobility mid\late game

11.png - we need it to jungle, yea xD

4.png -  u can take it, if u enemy team has many CC

So, thinking about 4.png or 6.png i would take 6.png in 70% , but it also depends from elo and enemy heroes.
For Darkin-form 6.png looks better, for SA-form - 4.png.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

So, we have two forms(read below): SA and Darkin. SA prefers Thunderlord's, Darkin - Fervor
U can think about mastery page during pick\ban phase - u need to understand,which form will be more valuable.
  • If u want more roam potential, u cant take 5 Wanderer instead of Savagery
  • Double edge sword for junglers, Battle trance - for toplaners.
  • Assassin - for toplaners, Runic - for junglers. U also can take Greenfather instead of Dgame, but i dont prefer it.

U can read about Kayn abilities on LoL-wiki (http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Kayn). I dont want to copy text from there.

Some tips:
  • U can use your kaynw.png and kaynq.png at the same moment.
  • If u want to play SA form, u should max kaynr.png>kaynw.png>kayne.png>kaynq.png
  • kayne.png is only sustain for standart Kayn. U can use abilities during it.
  • You become untargetable while in your ultimate.
  • kaynq.png  be used to get through some thin walls.

About kaynr.png

  • SA form wants to use this ultimate to dodge core CC abilities or to chase low hp targets.
  • Darkin form wants to make damage\heal from ult.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Against ranged top-laners
    for fast tiamat
    Jungle start. i pref machete
    If u like this guide,please, read last section(Other important information)

Core Items

    Core for Darkin\SA jungler
    Core for Darkin toplaner
    Magic resist items
    AD resist items
    SA(jngl) final build example
    Darkin(jngl) final build example
    Darkin toplane final build example
    Darkin toplane final build example
    SA(top) build example

Situational Items

    Against heavy AD team(with AA), against CC, or sometimes u want more AS.
    For toplaners - it depends from your play style and enemy team composition.
    can be valuable if u need full tankiness(Darkin form)
    U can take more lethality if u dont need(want) to buy defense

Our item build is often a choice beetween defensive and offensive items.

You shouldn't underestimate the opponent - sometimes its better to build enough magic  or physical resist, if u have enough killing potential.
  1. SA(top) build is similar to SA(jngl) with more defense. Something like 3142.png-> 3071.png -> 3156.png  or 3742.png -> 3053.png -> 3026.png
  2. 3075.png after 7.14 quite good against 23.png24.png114.png11.png
  3. 3065.png - much better cse of extra healing for Darkin
  4. 3078.png - after full CDR kaynq.png and kaynw.png will have small CD so u will get good bonus from 3057.png.
  5. 3110.png - u dont need CDR from this item,cse of core 3071.png. So u will buy it in <1% games.
  6. 3193.png - u dont have enough CC to buy this - we have to make some dmg.
  7. For toplaners(Darkin): basically u need to buy 1-2 offensive items(3078.png3071.png 3074.png or 3748.png) and other diffensive.
  8. Dont be afraind about 50 CDR (3078.png3071.png3065.png) - but u should think about other way to combine items - we dont want to spend gold for surplus-CDR.

About Darkin and Shadow Assassin Back to Top

This champ is very interesting, with some special mechanics, but it needs some buffs(scales,basic damage). I think rito will rise him, so its worth to learn how to play him.

Shadow Assassin Form:

  • AD Assassin
  • Roam with kayne.png and 3142.png
  • Insane burst damage
  • Has only Slow as CC.
  • Squishy
  • Very bad if falls behind
  • Hard to beat tanks

Darkin Form:

  • AOE CC
  • Has sustain, good defenсe,medium damage
  • Can be played from behind
  • Good against tanks
  • Not great mobility

Genetal tips Back to Top

1) Always buy 2055.png 
2) Ask your jungler to come if your opponent has 14.png(for toplaners)
3) Look every enemy's back if they have 3165.png or 3123.png, it reduces heal.
4) Try to predict enemy jungler(28.png29.png can come level 2)
5) This champ is very versatile, and best of all it is shown in jungle.

6)For toplane i advice to use Darkin - most of time u will see tanks against you(else use SA)

7)For jungler - forms depends from enemy heroes and your playstyle( for example: enemies have 2 tanks = Darkin)

Playstyle of forms is quite simple:
  • Darkin(top): splitpush with 12.png, using it to come in teamfights, peel your adc\apc, take rift Herald with jungler.
  • SA(jungle): roam, making pick-off's, in teamfights try to kill adc\apc, try to take rift Herald for toplaner.
  • Darkin ( jungler): try to take rift Herald for toplaner, make some gangs(not many), buy some def items become tanky, peel your adc\apc in teamfights.

Other important information Back to Top

  1. Matchups for Darkin(toplane) - more exact results will appear after collecting statistics.
  2. Your jungle matchups depends only from your knowledge of basic enemy jungler's strategies
