Summoner Spells Back to Top

12.png  This is what I would choose going into top lane for 2 reasons. Kennen is great at laning phase, but even better in teamfight. Teleport will enhance Kennen's roam potential which is already really strong since he is so fast. It is also important for Kennen to get back to lane quick, since CS is very important for Kennen to keep his power high throughout the game and also so that he doesn't fall of because mid game is very important for Kennen. TP is my main pick, you could also go ignite, but TP is really good since it will open up the map for the Kennen and also give him great teamfight potential and presence. 

4.png This is the obvious choice, it is important for every champ to run away and flash is very good for that, but for Kennen, flash has another use. Like I said before Kennen is really important in teamfights, mainly because his ultimate is very strong. Kennen is usually the champ that engages and starts a fight for the team, flash is good to get into the middle of the fight and just unleash hell with his ult.


14.png  This is an alternative for teleport. Ignite shows that you are really confident with Kennen, or if you feel like ignite could be that game changing moment in a 1v1 situation. Ignite is a really aggressive move for a Kennen mainly because Kennen is a very important member in the team. Taking ignite is like showing that you are prepared to try to win the laning phase, but then not care about the team fight game. Just because TP gives Kennen more presence and is really good to get to places when needed to, I wouldn't suggest ignite, but if you are confident,(and if you don't really have a good team comp), then go ignite.

Masteries Back to Top

So these are the masteries I normally play with Kennen. So you go 12 Ferocity and 18 Cunning. Most people build Wanderer(first on cunning to the left) for the start of the Cunning tier, I take savagery. Wanderer is out of combat movement speed, this is good as it can get you places faster, but I feel like that Kennen's laning phase is important, as it decides whether he will fall off mid to late game. Savagery (right side on the top of the cunning tier) is better because it helps with CS. Kennen farms with both auto attacks and Q since his Q is on a decently low cooldown. Savagery allows more damage to be dealt with the Q. I also take Sorcery (top of Ferocity tier on the right), because I feel like that Kennen's damage should be shown, so Sorcery enhances the damage dealt. Normally people take Fury, but I feel that attack speed is not as important as damage for a top lane Kennen. The last thing is you can take Stormraiders Surge, instead of Thunderlords. Stormraiders Surge will give that boost of movement speed Kennen needs for him to finish off his targets. It is your choice.

undefined.pngTo understand how to play Kennen you need to understand how to use his passive effectively. Kennen's passive is that each of Kennen's ability that hits an enemy unit leaves a stack. 1 stack for 1 ability. The stack lasts there for 6 seconds. If another stack is added within those 6 seconds the time restarts. If you are able to hit an enemy unit with 3 stacks then they will be stunned for 0.5 seconds. This is a great passive, for bot catching up with someone and also running away. You can continue to use your stacks even after the person has been stunned, there is no cooldown on the stacks. So you can continuously stack and get so many stuns.

undefined.pngYour Q is a lightning shuriken that travels in a straight line and hits the first target it meets, it deals magic damage and scales with AP and also leave a stack of the passive

undefined.png Your W has both a passive and an active. The passive is that after hitting 4 basic auto attacks on an enemy unit, Kennen gains an empowered auto attack that deals bonus magic damage, while also leaving a stack of the passive. This is great for just adding a stack, especially if you can finish the stacks for a stun, or if you don't have enough energy for abilities and you just want to add a stack so you get an extra 6 seconds for the stack to wear off.
The active can only work for enemy units that have a stack of the passive on them. Using the W will attack multiple units with the stack and within the range of the W and will also add another stack of the passive. Good for wave clear.

undefined.pngKennen's E is when Kennen gains movement speed and also ignores unit collision. Any units hit by the rush will gain a stack. After clicking E, you can click it again to stop the movement speed gained. This is great for catching up to enemies and also just adding a stack of the passive

undefined.png This is the main part of Kennen's kit, the ult. Kennen summons a magical storm around him that lasts for 3 seconds. Enemy units inside the storm will take 80/145/210 damage every 0.5 seconds. Every consecutive strike will deal 25% less damage, but will only deal of a minimum of 50% less damage. Also for every strike that hits the target will stun them, only up to 3 stuns thought. This is great in teamfights, being able to rush into the middle of everything while ulting is great, it also CC's real hard and will do it to multiple targets. This is why Kennen is a hot pick right now, he is a great laner, but also an terrific team fighter. But use his ults carefully, since it can decide wether or not you win a teamfight or not. 


Max undefined.pngfirst as it does the most damage and scales most with your AP. Max W second as it does the second most damage and scales the second most with AP. Last you max your e, as it is just for the movement speed. Ult is like normal, level up at 6/11/16. Don't forget to level it up, it is important in Kennen's kit.

    second item, if you are doing bad rush this item first, must have item though
    THRID ITEM, GREAT FOR TRYING TO CATCH ENEMY FROM RUNNING
    if your team has enough tanks and you wanna carry, choose 2, i prefer the ludens and void staff
    FINAL BUILD IN purchase order, you can buy rylais before boots if you want

VS

Darius

Medium

Since he is tank and does damage he is kind of a counter, but if you use your range and damage early game well, you can win early game. If you win early game you will win lane because when Kennen gets ahead, its hard to lose the lead, but becareful if he gets ahead since you won't do much damage.

VS

Irelia

Hard

She is so annoying, you will out damage her, but not enough to kill her since she can be tank, but when she gets triforce she will wreck you, after out damaging her she just stuns you and then wrecks your ass with her W. Becareful.

VS

Kayle

Medium

She is annoying because when you are about to kill her she becomes invulnerable, farm it out until you get 11, or 10, but if she plays aggressive after lvl 6 get junglers help. Try to use your ult cc to stop her from using her ult to save her, use your ult and other abilities as finisher, focus her in teamfights.

VS

Renekton

Hard

UMMMMM, WELL its hard for me to tell who is hard to lane against, but I hate laning against these 3 people. Renekton is annoying since he is tanky, and he does so much damage and also he is so easy to play. So from me, just becareful when laning against him, play safe and just kite with your ranged abilities and auto attacks.
