Summoner Spells Back to Top

Kennen Banner Summoner Spells.jpgFlash - 4.png Essential on most champions without a move speed steroid/dash but while Kennen's Ekennenlightningrush.png gives DOUBLE Move speed when used. at the cost of not being able to auto attack.

Ignite -
 14.png I take this 99.9% of the time, it gives kill pressure in lane and and even deadlier roam and team fight.

Teleport - 12.png This is good for Kennen, it allows for TP roams bot or even top. but i generally don't take it as ignite gives way more kill pressure and your E kennenlightningrush.pngalready doubles your move speed allowing you to roam very easily as well as getting back to lane.

Masteries Back to Top

Kennen Banner Masteries.pngFerocity-

Sorcery - 2% more damage from abilities, 2% More ult kennenshurikenstorm.pngDmg, more trade damage. all round so useful

Expose Weakness - 3% more dmg for allies you damage - VITAL with your ultimate, also good for ganks. overall one of Kennen's best masteries.

Natural Talent - AD and AP Kennen scales with both, must take on any APC.

Oppressor - 2.5% more damage to CC'd targets - your passive is this, and all proc's on rylai's if you build it. so nice all round.

Cunning-

Savagery - Kennen struggles with cs'ing early. this helps that with his typical Doran's Blade start.

Assassin - Kennen can 1v1 very well with ultimate or even 1v2 with large aoe damage in his kit. this will help Kennen deal more damage, and if you get fed this mastery becomes stronger.

Merciless - 5% more damage to low hp target, your Kit with huge aoe damage will proc this quickly on 1-2 champions this is vital

Dangerous Game - 5% of Missing health on kill or assist(mana is useless since Kennen is energy based), with the nature of Kennen's kit youll be picking plenty of kills up and if not kills assists with your aoe stun, this will heal you for upto 25% of your Missing HP, Bandit is for supports so dont take that.

Precision - Not only will it give more Magic penetration with your items and runes, it gives Armor Penetration whcih helps with auto attack trading and also CS'ing. all round good. the 45% cdr mastery isnt worth it because you donty build max cdr on Kennen, he just doesn't have enough items that dont give mana/mana regeneration to make it viable, Kennen renders mana/mana regen useless, hes energy based.

KEYSTONE

Thunderlords - Kennen's best keystone, gives your trade combo's good extra burst. dont take anything else

Kennen-Banner--Spells-abilites.pngPassive kennenpassive.png- Kennen's spells add a mark to the enemy, 3 marks means the enemy will be stunned for 1.25 seconds, the next stuns in 7 seconds will have a diminishing effect. this is why oppressor is so good on Kennen and what Kennen uses in team fights with his massive AOE ultimate to stun multiple enemies for his team allowing for an easy win. Kennen wins team fights single-handedly.


This skill order is the best skill order in my opinion. I will explain.


kennenshurikenhurlmissile1.png -  Taken level 2 and maxed first, most damaging spell and can chunk squishies extremely hard, especially with luden's echo.

kennenbringthelight.png- your wave clear and auto attacking spell, taken first for help with cs'ing and lane harassment (W Passive -> W Active and Q -> W combo's are your best trading and killing tools.

kennenlightningrush.png- Take level 3 and max last, this is your Wave clear spell (E->W), your roaming tool and your get back to lane tool, it doubles your move speed. it also allows you to position well in team fights for your vital ultimate. this plush flash is amazing for getting in position for team fights and flanking.

R kennenshurikenstorm.png- Ultimate. most champions (unless you're Udyr take this level's 6/11/16), this is what makes Kennen, Kennen. this is a massive aoe damaging spell and it vital for Kennen's team fighting.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    This is Kennen's Best start, Dorans give lifesteal for your high amount of early auto attacks, HP for survivability and AD to scale with your W early, it also helps with CS'ing as CS'ing is hard on Kennen.
    consumables for lane and full build
    Wards depend on your needs and what team you're facing or what your team need

Core Items

    Rush either Abyssal or Zhonya's depending on your matchup and the teamcomp you are facing then get the other, the only reason when I wouldnt get one of these is when the enemy team is full AD or AP, Sorc Shoes are a must on Kennen.
    Must have on any APC, I typically get this 5th or 6th item because its so expensive and by then you will have enough AP to make the Passive be worth the gold, 120 AP and 35% AP Bonus is so core on APC's

Situational Items

    CHOOSE 2 Luden's - Provides Burst vs Squishy comps Rylai's - Gives Utility Slow vs high mobility/kite comps. Void Staff - Gives 35% Magic Penetration, vital for high MR tanks (Galio etc.) Liandry's - Vital vs. High HP Tanks (Mundo/Volibear)

VS

Ahri

Medium

Skill match up, she has mobility and cc in ahriseduce.png andahritumble.png which makes her hard to catch but if you can get kennenpassive.png on her ans stun her in your ult kennenshurikenstorm.pngshe is dead, rush abyssal vs. her so her combo doesn't hurt as bad.

VS

Akali

Easy

Weak Melee laner, now known as a tank top, but if you do get an Akali MID in your game, you can abuse your range advantage with all of your spells and keep her from cs'ing, watch out for ganks though as she does have a lot of damage. and her lvl 6 powerspike is large, but so is your so when she all ins you, just ult and she should die.

VS

Anivia

Medium

She has  more range than you(600 AA range), this match up can be hard, just avoid her Q stun (Q has travel and land damage and could set up for a huge e which does huge damage when her passive in on you, avoid staying in her ult for long and avoid her Q, her wall can be super annoying and stop you setting up teamfights

VS

Annie

Hard

just be passive if she has ult infernalguardian.png with her stun as she can 1 shot you even through abyssal, Annie has 0 counter play just be careful and you should be fine. poke her when her passive and spells are down. and she can 1 shot you quicker than you 1 shot her, CAREFUL

VS

Azir

Medium

he out ranges you with his soldiers and has good poke, rush abyssal and if he uses his dash and hes in flash/e range you 1 shot him.

VS

Brand

Hard

He out ranges you, he can spam his stupid high damage skills and kill you, he also has % health damage rush abyssal and be passive when he spams his skills. all in him when his skills are on their semi long cooldown, hes squishy as hell and will easily be 1 shot by your combo level 6. Be Careful. 

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

Similar ranges, she is weaker early than late. and gets sustain in her e. be careful ones she poisons you as her e spam is not pretty, do not face her face on as she'll ult and stun you. she is immobile however so wait till she uses her Q cassiopeianoxiousblast.png or Wcassiopeiamiasma.png and all in her, with an abyssal rush she is an easy 1 shot.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

He has a silence and a knock up as well as his annoying ultimate, he gets tanky in the mid lane from he copius amount of health he builds and gets from his passsive on his R feast.png, he has sustain in his passivechogathpassive.png and is super annoying, ignite14.png stops his healing however and his spells have decently long cd's all in him level 6 when his Qrupture.png and W feralscream.pngare down. hew should die from being squishy early, be careful for his burst.

VS

Corki

Medium

He's an ADC that build AD items but does 80% magic damage, watch for his trinity force 3078.png powerspike, with sorcerers shoes3020.png as his burst is insane,especially with the package. his W carpetbomb.png has a long cooldown of 26-14 seconds and he normally will max that last, all in him lvl 6 before his spike with his Wcarpetbomb.pngdown

VS

Diana

Medium

Melee Laner, slightly weak early, but level 6 her damage is nuts, and she can snowball out of control. auto harass her in lane

and keep her low, all in her level 6 if she's low she will die, rush abyssal.

VS

Ekko

Medium

again a melee laner, harass him in lane. but watch for his disgusting burst and his ultekkoR.png can be good disengage, you probably wont kill Ekko, avoid his Q  ekkoQ.pngand W ekkoW.pngstun. and you have a chance of 1 shotting him lvl 6.

VS

Fizz

Medium

Annoying Fizz, screw this guy, hes annoying as hell, he deals stupid damage, has a stupid troll pole and overall is annoying, Kennen counters this guy though. Fizz's Passive fizzpassive.png reduces AA damage but harassment will still hurt, watch his all in potential, a way of countering this is to Ult when he jumps onto you. if under tower he will die 100% and if not you stun him and combo him and he should die. 

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

Good old cheesy scientist guy, annoying as hell, out ranges you, just stay out of turret range and all in him level 6 hes immobile and squishy. watch for his Upgraded abilites they hurt and he also naturally pushes lane. 

VS

Karma

Medium

More Common Support, but in mid she does stupid damage mid game. she falls off late, avoid her manta Q's karmachakra.pngkarmaheavenlywave.png as it will do a large amount of your hp, all in her level 6 she should die. 

VS

Karthus

Medium

Has a weak early game, but has lane pressure and team fight power in his kit, hes strong with 1 or more items be careful for his spammable Q's laywaste.png and his W reduces MR wallofpain.png.

VS

Kassadin

Medium

Melee champion, but he's an anti mage, with a magic shield on his Qnulllance.png and has some disgusting burst. hes mobile too, if you can catch and all in him level 6 do so as he should be killable.

VS

Katarina

Easy

Melee, stronger early game after 6.4 buffs to Qbouncingblades.png, you counter her level 6 with your passive countering her Ult as she cant use abilities or ult when CC'd shes squishy with no items and you can all in her lvl 6, and she can do nothing, still and easy matchup

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

LeBlanc is a very annoying mid laner, she has to go in melee to kill you though meaning your ult will stun her possibly, then you can kill her, if she's fed however.. she just 1 shots you and you have to enjoy summoners rift greyscale

VS

Lissandra

Medium

She has similar or lower range,  so harass her, and your ult doesn't stop when you get cc'd so you can just have ult on when she tries to all in you, you should beat her, but if fed she hurts a lot

VS

Lux

Hard

Probably will never kill her, she has too longer range, can harass you easily, hard match up and she could kill you at anytime.

VS

Malzahar

Medium

can suppress you, silence you and has space aids, this guy is quite hard to play against because of his annoying kit, be careful and all in him when his spells are down, he's immobile, this match up is a skill match but favoring malz slightly

VS

Orianna

Medium

She has slightly better ranges, but not as much damage as you, minus her w she's immobile so you can all in her lvl 6. be careful for her burst combo though.

VS

Swain

Medium

Swain has a root and a ton of sustain, hes weak pre 6 so prey on that, but watch for his E-Q swaintorment.pngswainbeam.png combo it hurts because Eswaintorment.png amplifies damage you take from him.

VS

Syndra

Medium

She has burst, CC and range, watch out for Syndra, she's extremely strong. and her ult is very deadly, careful and she is immobile, all in her with caution when her spell are down.

VS

Talon

Medium

Talon is a melee AD assassin, watch for his burst and because he has to be melee to kill you can ult and he should die. unless he has maw.

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

Longer range but weak damage early, watch for him roams however and his gold card and either push his tower or roam to counter his.

VS

Varus

Medium

ADC Mid lane, he has a lot of Damage with his Wvarusw.png  then popped by his Qvarusq.pngwatch out for his ult which is a skill shot and you should be able to all in and ult him down level 6 as hes immobile.

VS

Veigar

Hard

Hate this guy too, anti mage with a stun, don't all in this guy level 6, he'll 1 shot you easily, buy abyssal early and roam for kills. hes immobile though to gank him and set him back.

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Long range, but immobile, all in this guy but be careful. he has high damage poke in lane.

VS

Viktor

Medium

Laser does huge damage, avoid it, rush abyssal and hes immobile so all in him level 6. and he should die.

VS

Xerath

Medium

Long Long Ranges, high damage, watch out for his poke and only all in him if hes bad/gutsy/ganked.

VS

Yasuo

Easy

Yasuo is one of my most hated champions in the game, but Kennen counters this guy, he has to all in to kill you. so when he all ins you, ult and you should 1 shot him easily. also harass him with AA and keep his passive down. his wall counters your Qkennenshurikenhurlmissile1.png so beware.


VS

Zed

Easy

Melee AD Assassin, all in him level 6 or if he all ins you ULTkennenshurikenstorm.png he should be stunned, stopping him returning to his shadow, and pretty much killing him, auto harass in lane. and avoid his shurikens.zedQ.png.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

Hes weaker early, but has a lot of sustained dps and poke. watch out for them rush abyssal, and holy crap at level 6 hes dead as is most weak/low mids level 6. all in him with R and ignite and free kill
