Summoner Spells Back to Top

Don't take anything else .

New Runes Back to Top

 Electrocute is necessary and nothing else could beat it


sudden impact is also strong since you mostly start a fight with your ult or your jump

Ghost poro is my choice i like to have a bit more of vision and helps me sometime

Ravenous Hunter OR Relentless its your choice i mostly use Ravenous




Tenacity is really usefull with kha and other ones are not that good 

Last stand is something i like since i love to turn in fights

I take precision because i find it the best tree even tho going inspiration gives u 130hp and other usefull stuff such as the watch and free boots.  

Masteries Back to Top


GO 12/18/0
Savagery
Runic affinity ( you can take Assassin too) 
Merciless
Dangerous game
Precision
And Thuderlord's

In ferocity , vampirism can be remplaced by 4 natural talent and 1 vampirism


I can adapt it depending of matchups! Ask me if you need mor precision!

Khazix_Q_red.pngUpgrade your Q first. Trust  me i used to play it since s4 and i always maxed it and it worked very well because of the damages given and it permits you to destroy any squishy bottom/midlaner very easily.
Since s7 the Q is a bit different about damages but still deal a lot , my pref is Q => Ult => passive AA => Q 

Khazix_E_red.pngUpgrade your E in a second time , if you are fed you will need it a lot , it mostly give you the win when you get it will be fed because of the reset ( kill everybody you want and go back) and the long range that give you a nice escape .

Khazix_W_red.pngUpgrade your W last . The ult have been nerfed too much to take it. It gives you nice sustain plus good damages and poke/depush you will need it only in late game. And 80% slow on isolated targets


THE W OR R LAST UPRAGDE IS YOUR CHOICE, BOTH ARE OK AND NEED TO FIT INTO THE GAME YOU ARE PLAYING.




Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Taking this really often best way to keep hps and gank after you are lvl 3
    Thoses are core of every item you will take so you can buy one every time you have 1100 gold
    Get thoses boots, aint taking other very much except if ad top + ad mid such as riven zed
    Get jungle item 1rst, rank 1 boots and then swords to get the dirk

Core Items

    Depends of your playstyle
    Meta build example
    If focused build
    8.xx Build 2.0
    vs full ad team (last can be dead man's plate or any ad item in previous builds)
    OP ITEM

Situational Items

    If focused
    Other boots, check notes
    New GA is really stong on kha !
    see in notes
Basically, since Pre s6 Armor pen is kinda hard to have so some item have been changed and youmuu / malmortius are kinda broken. Pure penetration, a lot of ad, and defensive stats!
Last whisper is now kinda good to destroy bruisers like riven or wukong. A lot of pen but the amelioration works pretty well with tanks that gives you shit tons of damages!

JUNGLE
For the 3714_32.png I take it because of the "exhaust" it gives , 20%damage less against an lb/veigar its a must have to gank without dying.

BOOTS
3158_32.pngAre not my favorites boots .You already got a lot of cdr with the build i take and it makes you squishy early and sensitive to cc so you can take it but i won't recomand you to . SINCE S7 YOU GET 40% CDR REALLY FAST DONT BUY THEM 
3117.pngNot taking them often but consider taking them if really ahead and you need mobility to get more kills/have more impact
3009.pngYou can go for it if you feel confident they dont have a lot of cc

3047.png Those are kind of op atm so take advantage if they have AA ad champ

I take it generaly 2140_32.pngbut i take 2137_32.pngif i need to tank the team.
3134_32.pngRip i miss you ;-;

3147.png: The new drakthar is INSANE you can go for it right after your jungle item !

3053.png: Sterak's and Maw cannot be built togethr anymore, you have to choose one, i'll more go on Sterak since Maw have been nerfed and isn't giving pen anymore. You as always need to adapt your build !

3814.png : Is a really nice item for kha since it offers movespeed , lethality and hp + the shield. It is everything kha needs

3071.png : Some of kha mains rush it atm i find it kinda nice and i sometimes go for it in first, the bonus hp is really nice but since it gives more hp than ad i find it less nice for kha

3078.png: Triforce is a really good optional item that can gives you a lot of power by his ad/ sheen proc + movespeed. You can take it as a 4rth item if you are ahead and fear the carry in the other team

VS

Aatrox

Hard

Not really easy, you can kill him early but late game it will be hard if he is as fed as you.

New jungle item make it really hard to kill him care 
Only way to kill him late is to oneshot him!

VS

Amumu

Medium

I hate this matchup, he is tanky and got damages in late game and escape with his q. Avoid fight him in late except if you are fed

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

His rupture will be boring and in late game he will kill you easily . Avoid fight him in late game.

VS

Diana

Medium

Squishy in early and in late . Just be carefull about her Q and her shield 

VS

Elise

Hard

One of the worst matchup dont fight her except if she is in "human form" and she used her ult recently.Even more cancer with the new jungle item

VS

Evelynn

Medium

No damages early no tank early, make her life an hell . be careful if she is going with ap jungle item + gauntlet it may bother you even more is she's fed!

Changed to medium since eve is god tier

VS

Fiddlesticks

Hard

I put it in hard beacause its hard to kill him but if he wastes his fear/silence u get him easily. Don't underestimate his damages 

VS

Hecarim

Medium

Just a bit dangerous because he can deal you damages even if you are under ult. if he is not playing hecarim it will be easy

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Skill matchup depends of the build.

VS

Jax

Medium

Duel is hard because of his ult and aa that deals a lot of damages stay safe dont try to kill him however you are fed

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Not a difficult matchup imo get feed on him early just bait his blindmonkqone.png and destroy him.

Even tho he is considered as the number 1 counter of Kha i find its pretty bs.

VS

Malphite

Medium

Easy early, dangerous late game he will be tanky and deals you a lot of damages. You still can kill him.


VS

Maokai

Medium

Too tanky to deal with him avoid fight in late.

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Easy for you just q him and aa and he will die. Wait he q to ult . Dangerous to fight if he has his 30 stacks

VS

Mordekaiser

Hard

HueHueHueHue

VS

Nasus

Easy

Not a common matchup but he will be often oom in jungle so have fun except in late if he has a lot of stacks.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

I hate this, get a lot of cc , his team mates will have the time too help him and kill you.

Ofc kill him if you are fed

VS

Nocturne

Medium

If he plays well it will be hard to kill him, evaluate his skills and adapt 

VS

Nunu

Medium

Hard champ a lot of damages a lot of slows i hate this matchup since tank meta is over its a little bit easy

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Dangerous matchup basically based on skill

VS

Rammus

Hard

Hate it so hard with his q u cant get it in late useless to try to kill him .

VS

Rek'Sai

Easy

Easy matchup i used to try Rek'Sai and she can't fight you just do what you want with her.

VS

Rengar

Medium

THE matchup i basically found it easy . Take a pink or red trinket and it will be easy. Use your ult when he his jumping on you and it won't be that hard.

Btw dont fight he is really fed!

VS

Sejuani

Hard
ALERT Cancer matchup, avoid fight dont try to counter gank except if lane is fed or you are but dont counter gank at equal feed level.
What about League of tanks? This shit is more snowballing than you.

Lil more easyer now since tank meta is over 

VS

Shaco

Medium

Depends a lot of skill. he will go out when you want to fight him and he may kill you because of the clone that cant make you proc your q's passive


Since the patch 5.21  with his buff on his decoy avoid fights if you are not sure!

TRICK: With the new smite, the smite will kill his decoy (if you took the blue or red item) and easy kill if not fed .

VS

Shyvana

Hard

Not played this matchup a lot avoid fight in late game and it will be alright. 

Since it takes exhaust in jungle it destroys you so i pass it in Hard!

VS

Skarner

Medium

You kill him easily in 1v1 but in 2v2 it gonna be hard if u dont play safe.

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

Just care about undyingrage.png turn arround hide in bushes and khazixQ.png as much as you can

VS

Udyr

Hard
Cancer matchup: Avoid ANY fight with him he will destroy you. I hate this matchup a lot.

VS

Vi

Medium

She deals a lot of  damages so care about her QER combo. Avoid any fight if she is more fed than you

VS

Volibear

Hard

He has a lot of damages and is really tanky, with his e and q he will chase you so i put it in HARD but it depends of how he plays/builds

he can volibearq.png your khazixe.png

VS

Warwick

Medium

It's Warwick so basically dont fight him after 6 except if you are fed and os him.

VS

Wukong

Easy

I found thats an easy matchup because if you just dodge his ult he got nothing no to kill you, just E out his ult and if he chase enjoy freekill.


Still be carefull about his decoy since it stop the q passive

VS

Xin Zhao

Hard

He plays a lot on early and mid game way more harder since the purple amelioration get changed .

VS

Yasuo

Easy

Just have fun. He got 460hp level 1 so counter him early and it will be a free win.

VS

Zac

Medium

He is tanky basically so you wont kill him easily but he wont kill you. He got a lot of escape with his Q and E and his passiv so just care and gank more than him.

VS

Zed

Easy

Zed jungle is an easy matchup dont fear at any levels counter jungle him in early levels.


HINT: Ult when he ults you and destroy him.

Jungle clear Back to Top

Screenshot_7.png

BLUE SIDE : So this is the side i dont like because of the "hard" time you get at red and the lack of mana when you start blue, so basically after gromp, either you do crab or you will try to counter, counter is kinda hard and risky but can be really worth it! ( I smite at gromp personally)

RED SIDE: This side is different since i get lvl 3 on wolf without smiting anything, use a pot after gromp and then your second pot at red and smite red, this will allow you to counter if the jungler is late or taking all the camps , you can also try to got at his gromp.  
In red side you can take the vision plant after your red giving info about their blue buff!

Try to counter jungle only if confident or you know he is low
Consider to w on the scuttle when you are about to invade to get more hp!

JUNGLE TO PLAY SAFE AGAINST
Most of invade jungler as Shaco or Lee will invade you because most of them know that jungle khaZ is not really resistant to jungle early game. If you can start blue on blue side or ask your team to ward deep in the river to help you preventing ganks it may help also, if they play bad you can easily get the first blood on them, dont be affraid to use your pot to have the maximum hp possible before fighting!

How to gank properly Back to Top

Basically, ganks as a jungler define if you are good or bad at this role. That's how to make you appear as a jungler  master!

 
When you try to gank mid:

1. See if the minions are coming from your lane so you can know if its the same for the enemy's midlaner. Doing this can helps you to provide your damages with your khazixQ.png Isolated or not! 
2. Try to check the chat to see if their midlaner used his flash or escape to adapt your gank!

3. Use your ult before coming into the lane like this he will not be able to react before he sees you facilitating the kill 

4. Try to gank not from the bushes but by the "tower side" of their midlaner if he is pushing he wont be able to come back fast enought giving you a kill in most cases.

When you try to gank top:

1. Wait the enemy pushes and adapt if he is playing a tanky champ(shen) / bruisier(riven) 

2. Try to lane gank if you are not if you are not in blue side (No tribush for you) 

3. The creeps are slower to come so less time to gank. Take any occasion and take advantages of the cc of most toplaners.

When you try to gank bot:

1. Know that you can't proc your q passive so dont rely on too many damages. 

2. If supp or adc alone you can easily get them because of the lack of armor/hp of the botlane

3. You can burst them faster with the help of support and adc, allowing you to drake without any problems.

4. Try to split them out and kill the one that is not going undertower or the squishyer!
