Summoner Spells Back to Top

Not that much to say here, just the regular summoner spells for an ADC

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Warlord's or Fervor?

Warlord's isn't that great on the new  85.png ADC as you won't build as much damage as an other ADC. Moreover, you're not building that much crit so it is better to use Fervor cause you're an attack speed user.

Natural talent or Vampirism?

I've always prefered Vampirism on ADC cause I'm a lifesteal fanatic, but Natural Talent is really good aswell.

- Take and max W first: this is why Kennen ADC is viable with passive

- Take your Q second and max it after W: it's a safe way to stun someone with your AA + W and it has good base damages + it's a good poke tool

- Take your E third and max it last: it's a spell that's useful for the mobility it gives but the rest is kinda useless on AD 85.png

- Take your ult at level 6/11/16 as always

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    The good old Doran's blade + Potion. Good and safe, it's better if you're scared of the lane
    A really good start to rush BOTRK and it's good against poke lane
    You can take this instead of potions, it saves a lot of gold but gives you less sustain
    Upgrade into Blue trinket asap
    Cull is a really good item as it gives you 180 gold if you stack it + sell. It's always a good item to have (take it at first back)

Core Items

    Since the last changes, BOTRK has become godlike on ADC Kennen. It gives a good early game, good sustain, good damage and synergises well with Runnan's. Always go for it first
    The other core item on Kennen ADC: it lets your W stacks faster and as said before, works really well with BOTRK. It gives good AOE damage
    These are the go-for boots for most of the attack speed adc and Kennen is one, so buy them
    Bloodthirster is really good on Attack Speed reliant champion. It gives a lot of sustain and durability. Scimitar is good aswell for the CC Removal
    Guinsoo's is really good on Kennen specially with a Runnan's because with these two items, you'll have a W every 2-3 AA which gives a lot of damage
    Those two items are both good for the tankiness they give. You can pick them both or only one of them (if it's the case, frozen mallet is usually better for the kiting)
    The best item if you're getting focused. It's good on pretty much every ADC
    A good stuff in pretty much every situation: lots of damage, good durability, awesome sustain. Replace BT/Frozen Mallet with a GA if needed (check out below for the build order)
    A really tanky build. You can replace sterak with a guardian angel if needed
    Buy this if your team has already surrendered

Situational Items

    These are decent, but not really fitting in the stuff
    It's good for duelling, but you'll probably never need it
    Good item, cheap, can work instead of guinsoo's
    Decent, but not really fitting with the build
    Good item against heavy burst ap, can work instead of sterak

Build order:

3153.png ---> 3006.png ---> 3085.png ---> 3124.png

This is your basic item order. You'll pretty much always have these items in every game.

Finish with two of the other core items mentionned, with a preference for 3022.png

VS

Medium

She has a good range and a huge DPS potential. But without enchantedcrystalarrow.png she's easy to get. Try to play with an aggressive support

VS

Medium

He's not that good as a support but he's still annoying. Care for his disengage and his catch potential, stay with your support and don't forget your kennenlightningrush.png when he tries to aurelionsolQ.png you

VS

Medium

He has the ability to lock you down heavily, but he's really vulnerable to kiting, which 85.png adc is good at. Stay away from him and try to stun him while he's charging alistare.png

VS

Medium

She's dangerous because of her huge power spike lvl 6 thanks to infernalguardian.png, but she's vulnerable without the bear. Try to predict her passive and it should be fine

VS

Bard

Easy

You can avoid all his skillshots and his spells are really slow so he won't be able to stop you easily

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

You can avoid his grabs but you can also let yourself be grabbed to ult on their botlane, care in the first levels 

VS

Braum

Hard

He...is...so...horrible... He will slow you, defend his carry and disengage. Just try to farm if he's against you

VS

Caitlyn

Hard
51.png is now a harder counter to 85.png: her mid-game is now really viable (that was the biggest point why 85.png was stronger than her) and her early is now even more horrible. But she still gets heavily countered by 201.png. Care for her traps and be the safest you can

VS

Corki

Hard
42.png was already a counter of 85.png: he is now even stronger: He still has this huge damage output with now magical damages on AA... It's just crazy. His Special Delivery will be horrible for you due to the slow which can destroy you: as always against counter : play safe and call the jungler

VS

Draven

Hard

God... He has so much damages! Three AA will be enough to kill you in early and ONE in late game. You need your jungler or you're gonna have a bad time

VS

Ekko

Easy

I've seen lots of 245_64.png supports recently so...

245_64.png support is really bad against 85_64.png, his spells are easily avoidable and even if he W, just press E to get out of the range. You can poke him and he can't really peel his carry

VS

Ezreal

Easy

Easy matchup, you can dodge his skillshots and he can't trade you with AA. You'll probably farm better than him

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium

He is really squishy and his silence won't be a huge problem for you. But care for his horrible damages on W and his fear. Keep vision on him and try to poke and farm

VS

Gangplank

Easy
41.png adc? I've seen one soooo:
He has no range so you can hard poke him, even if he can disable CC, it won't be a real problem. Play with a cc support and gg ez

VS

Graves

Medium
104.png can still be controled by 85.png: he has now the worst range of all the carries with one of the highest damage output BUT you can control him with some CC (89.png is still perfect against him but you have to care for his gravesmove.png) Your early game is as good as his one but you start to outscale him mid game

VS

Janna

Hard

She will be an horror for you: she can disengage very well, play aggresively, tank your damages: just farm and if you engage, try to focus her if the enemy ADC isn't too dangerous

VS

Jhin

Medium

He has a really vulnerable early game and no mobility, that means stunning him won't be a problem for you. BUT: Care for his horrible late game and stay with your team.

If he has a defensive support (201.png for example) the lane may be difficult:
I think an aggressive support is needed against him (53.png or 89.png are pretty decent there)

VS

Jinx

Medium

This matchup can be hard but the laning phase shouldn't be a problem: 222_64.png has a very weak early, your one is totally better: trade her in the first levels but avoid the fight after lvl 9: she will outrade you

VS

Kalista

Medium

The only problem with 429_64.png is that she can avoid your Q so you won't be able to proc your passive, but as often, your early game is stronger: you need a CC support to win this lane (like 89_64.png)

VS

Karma

Easy

Just stay behind your minions and farm, keep vision on her to not take her harass. She is really squishy, you will be able to kill her easily and she can't hard protect her carry from you

VS

Kennen

Medium

You will probably never see this matchup but if you do, don't trade him if he has his W passive up and avoid his spells: stay behind your minions and let the best 85_64.png wins!

VS

Kindred

Hard

She has a horrible mobility to counter you and her ult will save her from your burst. Her early game is totally stronger than yours. Play safe and wait for the late game we're you'll be outscaling her (CARE FOR THE ULTRA LATE GAME)

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium
96.png has lost many counter mechanics against 85.png: His early game is now HORRIBLE and 85.png is now able to trade him early on. He takes such a long time to scale that the game will often be already finished. In lane, harass him and don't be afraid: he doesn't deal many damages in early. Just care for his late game and all should be fine

VS

Leona

Hard
89_64.png won't be easy to kill for you, she can peel her carry and perma CC you. Be very careful, don't get hit by his E/R or you won't survive (if the ADC has some damages)

VS

Lucian

Easy

He has a low range on his AA and he is very vulnerable to CC: play with a CC support and you will destroy him (care for his big damages in early)

VS

Lulu

Hard

She can poke you, silence you and peel her carry: she is one of your best counter as an ADC, her shield is enough in early to tank your W passive or other spells and her ult will save her carry in most of the trade

VS

Lux

Hard

She has a big range, big damage and she can disengage with her Q and peel her ADC. Just try to play safe and avoid her spells, all of them are skillshots

VS

Miss Fortune

Hard

Ah ah ah, nice one Riot. 21.png is probably in the top 3 hardest counter of 85.png now:

A lane bully (which counters 85.png due to a weaker early game cause she can poke safer and better than him) combined to teamfight mid/late game orientated adc (she is also safer than 85.png cause she can be far away from the fight). So be really safe against her and don't forget: your CC is your best friend

VS

Mordekaiser

Medium

He has HUGE damages but you can outrun and kite him easily. Be really safe if you're alone and if his botlane has a big cc dealer (if Mord lanes with a 25.png for example) cause you're really squishy.

VS

Morgana

Hard

Her spell shield will tank your stun/W passive and her CC are so long that if you get CC, you'll die 80% of the times. Stay behind your minions and be aware of her 4.png+R

VS

Nami

Easy

This matchup is easy, you can dodge her CC easily and she is really squishy: care if she plays with one of your counter (119_64.png), she will increase his damage like crazy

VS

Nautilus

Hard

The biggest problem will be his ult cause you won't be able to dodge it. He is too tanky and don't even try to poke him, or he'll full CC you. Try to farm really safely and stay behind your minions. Don't trade the enemy ADC (you can try only if you have a peeling support like 201_64.png or 25_64.png)

VS

Nunu

Medium

He is annoying but he hasn't so many CC and he can't really peel his ADC but he will hard poke you with his E (which has a low range). Just farm and harass him whenever he tries to E you

VS

Quinn

Easy

She has no blind now but she has more damages. Be aware of her roaming/late game picking potential. The early should be fine against her, an aggressive support could be perfect against her. Just care for her late and roaming and it should be okay

VS

Sivir

Hard

One of the hardest matchup, even if you have a better range, she will outrade you and farm better than you. With her spellshield, it will be hard to proc your passive. Just play safe

VS

Sona

Medium

She will poke you but she has a low peel against you, just AA her and care at lvl 6, she can disengage easily

VS

Soraka

Medium

You won't kill the ADC with her against you, so just focus her and it should be fine

VS

Tahm Kench

Medium

The peeling he can offers to his adc will be annoying but he doesn't really counter you because he can't really harass if you stay behind your minions. You can easily poke him

VS

Thresh

Hard

He isn't hard for his grabs cause you can dodge them, but he is hard because he can hardly peel his carry. CARE: if you do not have your E play extremely safe

VS

Tristana

Medium

The new 18_64.png is strong against 85_64.png because she has more damages as an ADC. A CC rotation is necessary to kill her because of her mobility (25_64.png is perfect against her). Care for her long range and her E which deals tons of damages now

VS

Twitch

Hard

He is horrible: to play against a 29_64.png, you need to instant destroy him, and you can't do that in early. So he will trade you and his passive+E will deal insane damages to you. Just play safe and if you trade him, just use your W passive and run

VS

Urgot

Hard

He is horrible: he will poke you, outrade you and his passive will be your worst enemy. Just try to avoid his E or you're gonna have another bad time

VS

Varus

Medium

He has a good range but hasn't very good damages and no mobility at all. Play with a CC support and it should be easy but care because of his range

VS

Vayne

Hard

I think it's the most skilled matchup for Kennen so I have to explain it a lot:

-First levels: You have more damage in early, harass them whenever you can
-Lvl 6: This is going to be harder, she can totally outplay you with her ult so play safe
-Lvl 9:Don't fight her anymore without your support, she is going to destroy you
-Teamfight: In teamfight/late game/ you're a bit less powerful than her but you're good too: focus her with your teamates but care for the Condemn in late game

Support synergy Back to Top

89_64.png Leona:

-Probably the best support for 85_64.png
-Her CC will help you to land your passive and spells
-She can peel you
-Her passive will deal horrible damages with your AA
-A tanky supp

25_64.png Morgana:

-Same as 89_64.png, has tons of CC with more peeling but less tankiness
-An epic peeling for 85_64.png
-Long CC
-A good laning phase and a very good teamfight phase

37_64.pngSona:

-Can poke very well 
-Can increase 85_64.png damage
-Has a good disengage/engage with her ultimate
-Has a movement speed buff and a heal

223_64.pngTahm Kench:

-Can hard peel 85_64.png 
-Can help 85_64.png  to engage
-Can (again) provides a good gank potential for 85_64.png  (with his ult)

Synergy with other lanes Back to Top

Midlane:

61_64.pngOrianna:

-She can help you for the engage and peel you
-An AOE CC
-Can roam botlane

3_64.pngGalio:

-Exactly the same as Orianna with more tankiness and the fact that he has to be in the fight, his CC is also longer

Jungler:

32_64.pngAmumu:

-Can gank the botlane very well with his ult
-Has many CC to peel his allies in teamfight
-His passive is useful with 85_64.png

20_64.pngNunu:

-His ult is really powerful with 85_64.png
-His W will give 85_64.png a huge buff of AS and MS
-He's can gank 85_64.png easily

Toplane:

57_64.pngMaokai:

-Can peel 85_64.png in teamfight with his ult
-Has many CC 
-Can roam at botlane 

68_64.pngRumble:

-WWOOOOMMMBBOOO CCCOOOMMMBBBOOO
-He can roam at botlane without difficulty

Early game Back to Top

In early, 85.png doesn't have many damages but he can still farm very well and harass his enemy. Here's what to do in early game:


-Farm, just farm
-If you have your W passive, don't waste it on minions, poke the enemies with it
-Stay behind your minions, you're very squishy and if you're against an heavy CC support (111.png for example), you're gonna have a bad time if he's next to you
-Your support must peel you


Mid game Back to Top

85.png is starting to do big damages in mid game but, because he has to be inside the teamfight, he needs more peeling than before. Here is what to do in mid game with 85.png:
-Stay with your team
-You're good for ambushes, stay in the bush with your team
-Stay near your support, he is even more important now
-Harass before teamfight, even if you don't do many damages with your abilities, it's still useful
-Focus the carries, you're not very good to takedown the tanks

Late game Back to Top

85.png is now a god, he has now many AD and godlike damages output. In 3 AA you should be able to kill the enemy ADC and you'll be able to focus the tank. You need less peeling cause you can kill very quickly but you should stay with your support. Here's what you should do in late game:

-Focus the carries 
-Stun everybody with your ult
-As always, stay with the support because you're still a bit squishy
-Don't splitpush, or splitpush with your support at least

More about the passive Back to Top

85.png's passive is very strong specially because it gives him something that not many adc have: a stun.

It procs on each of your spell and stacks up to three times. If your opponent has 3 marks, he'll be stunned for 1.25 seconds.

Here's some tips to proc well your passive:

-In laning phase (pre-6) to stun your opponent, stack your W passive and AA your opponent (1 mark), then Q him (2 marks) and press W (3 marks). You shouldn't change this ordrer (specially don't W second) cause you're not sure to land your Q but you're sure to land your W. You can replace the Q by using your E but don't forget you're squishy.

-To stun two people, AA one (the squishiest) with your W passive and then Q the other one. Then E on both of them and press W


-After lvl 6, if you're winning your lane, try to do the second combo (W passive-E-W) and then ulti (even if it won't proc twice the stun)

-Don't forget than your ult can stun too, if an opponent take three ligthning, he'll be stun and you can stun 3/4/5 people with your ultimate

-Conclusion:
-In 1v1, prefer the first combo
-In 2v2 prefer the second combo
-In 3v3 or more, prefer the ult
-Don't forget you're not an ap, your stun will be very useful to AA your opponents but not to deal damages

Pros Back to Top

-Has a pretty good laning phase

-Strong duelist because of his quick CC

-A strong ADC in teamfight

-A very good late game

-Can roam with his support

-Has good damages with his W

-Has a good mobility

-Has a CC

-Can play with most of the support

-Farms well

-People don't expect him to deal damage with his AA, you will surprise the enemies

Cons Back to Top

-Has a low range

-He has, so, many counters

-There is still better in early

-Needs some peeling even inside a teamfight

-Has to be inside the fight without 3157_32.png

Preseason VS Kennen Back to Top

I was really afraid that 85.png ADC would totally disapear in season 6 but it seems fine: the nerf to 96.png/ the 3812.png against 119.png... All those things make 85.png still strong! 

I'm not attempting a rise of 85.png adc this season but let's expect something.
If those new reworked adc (21.png/133.png/51.png/42.png specially) are not getting shutdowned, 85.png will have a hard time but I think he will still be viable for this season!

I hope you will try him to see if you still find him fine at botlane!

Another playstyle Back to Top

You can also build another type of stuff with 85.png: the on-hits effect stuff.

What you want to do is dealing massive AoE damages + Mixed damages.
Build in the item section

Pros:

-God this late game is so strong
-Big AoE damages
-Mixed damages are always good
-Really funny to play
-Huge sustain
-3124.png is just op on 85.png  with this build

Cons:

-Hard in early game
-Struggles a lot against hypercarry (222.png/67.png)
-Needs more time/kills to be effective
-You have to farm a lot

Which one should I take ?

Both of the builds are good, you should make your own opinion!

Kennen AD top? Back to Top

I think I can now talk to you about  AD 85_64.png top, but first i have to talk about AP 85_64.png top:

AP 85_64.png is a poke champion and a lane bully for many no-ranged champion. He can farm well and deals tons of magic damages. He can roam verywell and is very useful in teamfight. If he gets engaged in lane, he can ult+3157_32.png to trade very well. He doesn't really need protection even if a jungler gank will help him (he is useful when his jungler gank because of his CC)

Now AD 85_64.png:
AD 85_64.png looses many pros of AP 85_64.png: First, it's easier to take armor than to take magic resist (i don't think this sentence is right, tell me in the comments if i have made a mistake), so you will do less damages. He is more vulnerable to gank. He can harass easily but his harass will deal less damages. AD 85_64.png needs some peeling, that's why i don't think he is a good choice for the toplane but if you play him, heres some counter:

AD 85_64.png TOP IS STRONG AGAINST:
- AP 85_64.png only in laning phase
-41_64.png it's my opinion, you can get destroyed by a GP
-54_64.png you will... poke him?

AD 85_64.png TOP IS WEAK AGAINST:
-68_64.png His level 3 will destroy you
-69_64.png Better range, better harass
-23_64.png You can't kill him and you won't be able to escape very well
-92_64.png AP 85_64.png is strong against her, AD 85_64.png is very weak against her cause of her engage

SO:

Don't play AD 85_64.png Top, it's really bad

Kennen ADC picked by a pro Back to Top

I know he doesn't play like me but it's still 85_64.png ADC 

About this guide Back to Top

[I'M UPDATING THE GUIDE :D]
What has been finished:
-Summoner Spells
-Masteries
-Runes
-Spell order
-Items (almost finished)
Still testing Kennen

[I'M UPDATING THE GUIDE :D]
First of all, sorry for my mistakes in this guide: i'm not English but i tried to do my best


85_64.png isn't a popular champion: he got buffed recently but is still in the top 20 of the less played champion in the game.

When i saw the AD ratio on 85_64.png W passive, I imagined an AD 85_64.png on botlane and I tried it. AD 85_64.png has been my main in S4 (only in PVP) and i can tell you that he is powerful

I hope you will try it just to make your own opinion about AD 85_64.png
I haven't really changed the guide recently, because i think i've said everything about 85_64.png ADC but if you want me to explain more something, just put a comment :D 
Rekkles just picked Kennen at Worlds against EDG, i might analyse what stuff he did and maybe i'll talk about it :D

-Thank you for the 100 views :D
-375 view already :O
-More than 600 views, you guys are awesome
-1k views passed, i love you all :D
-2k views!
-3k views,  #CrispToDaMaximum

-10 k views... Thank you guys, when I writed this guide, I couldn't even imagine that it would become that viewed. I would like to do another guide but I don't know what I could do. Still thank you guys, I love you all ;D

-And it's now: Today, the 10th of November, we passed the 100k views... Thank you all, you're all amazing! This guide is being one of the first Kennen Guide displayed when you click on our favorite yordle's face... That's totally incredible! I know the popularity of this guide is probably due to Rekkles' world pick, but don't worry: This guide isn't over yet, as long as I will play the game, I'll still be uploading this guide. Again, thank you all, you're all amazing :D

-Wow, already 200k views! Thank you all for supporting this guide! I can't really update the guide as I have to wait new patches to add more content. But don't worry, i'm still on this one and I'll try to do another guide!

-300k views are now passed! Incredible! As always, I'll tell you that I'm waiting for changes that could affect our favorite ninja and Jhin will soon be out so i'll obviously talk about him, but for the moment: Just thank you very much, you're all awesome! I'm actually working on a synergy with ALL the supports but it's going to be long because I'm testing with a friend of mine and we have a lot of work to do for that (And i'm not really playing ADC 85.png that much, I'm playing him as an AP Mid right now)

-500k views! That's a lot!

-600k views! Wow! I'm sorry if I can't really update the guide anymore, I don't really play the small ninja and even less as an ADC but for the moment, I don't think the guide needs to be updated.

About me Back to Top

Hi guys, thank you for watching my guide !


I'm CurseOfTheMumu (IG name is "A wild Kennen") , i play league since February 2014. I used to main support but I now main ADC and Toplane I mostly do PVP but i often do ranked games. I'm known because of my out of meta pick like 85_64.png ADC or 38.png Tank Top or 77.png support.
When I don't play ADC, I really enjoy (it seems weird maybe) to play tanky champions and even on non-tanky champs, I like to pick many resistances (101.png with 3027.png 3151.png 3116.png 3001.png 3157.png 3020.png for example)

Champions I enjoy playing:

Kennen Updates Back to Top

I'll be talking here of the 85.png changes (or anything that affects 85.png, that also means item changes) since season-6 so let's go:


[6.1]: The buff to 3812.png 3036.png and 3033.png are good for 85.png and the nerf of 3094.png is small enough. Warlord's Bloodlust change is good, 85.png already got a strong early game but his sustain can be (without 3072.png) pretty bad so the up in late is really strong.

[6.2]: 202.png is out and 85.png is strong against him, nothing more to add

[6.3]: The assassins are going to comeback due to the new item and 85.png will struggle a lot against those, but I think it's a good come-back possibility of AP 85.png Mid with 3157.png

[6.4]: The changes to Warlord's will force 85.png  to take Fervor of Battle but he's still good and I think that 85.png  is a great counter to 96.png with his stun so he's a good pick right now

[6.5]: The huge nerf on 16.png will make anyone lane easier, 85.png included but the 6.png is still a bit scary as he's a huge 85.png counter. Nothing more to add 

[6.6]: 85.png is getting stronger and stronger. With the 40.png nerf, the 429.png nerf and the 117.png nerf, his laning phase is easier and safer. Otherwise, I think that 85.png mid is a really good option right now but AD 85.png  is good too

[6.7]: 16.png got nerf, and she's really strong against 85.png so it's good. And maybe the nerf to 42.png ? Not many changes for 85.png this patch
