Summoner Spells Back to Top

You need both summonerspells in 10/10 games so don't mix around with the likes of 6.png or 14.png/3.png.

I have seen all those 3 summonerspells on some Kha'zix from time to time but I have to be honest, they are really bad. 

You need 4.png to do some outplays and stuff like that or you will endup jumping in and dying :-) That's pretty much not what we want to see!

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity:


Sorcery - This will help you with assasinating people really easily by just having 2 % more DMG on your Q/W what will also influence the thunderlord DMG and the overall burst that you are puting on champs with that!

Double Edged Sword - It's basically just a mandatory Mastery for each kind of melee jungle champion, it helps to make better use of Kha'Zixs early just as mid-/lategame!
Vampirism - Just for some additional sustain because that's pretty much all Kha'Zix is bad at, staying healthy early on in the jungle! - Even alot better now on all champs not just melees with 6.12!

Opressor - It's really powerfull especially early on because we are going to have redbuffs in the early-/midgame and we dont need any kind of DMG scaling for later!


Cunning:

Wanderer - It's just very good, especially early on to move around in between the jungle and lanes that you might end up ganking! Also it works wonders with the new air dragon!

Runic Affinity - It might not be the best choice in this tree but it's my preferance, I rather have a redbuff for a little longer when i meet enemies jungler, than having 2 % DMG, also it adds up to the duration of baron or the harold what makes it really powerful when it comes to those!

Merciless - Just the classic tool for all assassins in the game!

Dangerous Game - Not much to say about this either, the other option isnt really any good for junglers.

Precision -  The onliest option consdering the itembuild that we are going to use on Kha'Zix!

Thunderlord - A very very powerful tool to oneshot people and it adds up perfectly with the kit that Kha'Zix has!

Why do we max those, and what we get from that?


Maxing Q:

We go to max our Q abilitykhazixQ.png "Taste their fear" for the damage that it provides just as the jungleclear!
 

Going W second: 

We are always maxing our W ability khazixW.png "Void Spike" second just because it helps us sustaining threw the jungle, and also makes our ganks and our DMG spikes alot stronger/higher. It's the second highest DMG ability that we get and is really strong in combination with Q W AA to procc thunderlord, or to just clear things off that are preventing some1 from beeing isolated!

E as the last spell to max:

Kha'Zixs E ability khazixE.png "Leap" is just utility based, it does little to no DMG and only helps us clearing wraiths on level 3, that's as much as it does for us talking about jungle clear! 
BUT the more important point is the level 11 powerspike, once we have 2 points in our "R" khazixR.png "Void Assault" and we evolved into E we will become a really scary monster runing around the map! More about that in the next point.

What do we evolve and in what order?


Evolve-Order in a clean cut version: Q // E // W (More about that, and WHY down below) 


It's pretty simple to say and very obvious, first we start evolving our Q Ability khazixQ.png "Taste their fear" just for the insane high SolotargetDMG that it provides. 

After that we ALWAYS evolve our E Ability khazixE.png "Leap" just for the insane high utility, with the resett and stuff!

Our last and pretty much least important evolve is going to be our W Ability khazixW.png "Void Spike" it's pretty common to do that, and evoling R is pretty close to trolling to be honest, so at the moment we just have those options and this order is by far the most viable and best to do!

 MISSCLICKING ON KHA'ZIX REALLY HURTS BE PATIENT WHEN IT COMES TO EVOLVING!!!

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    ALWAYS GO WITH THOSE 2
    We get this on our first back at level 3 for the max XP gain from the jungle camps

Core Items

    The 3 Core items for my Kha'Zix Build, Tiamat to isolate, BC for Health,DMG and CDR, Warrior for DMG and CDR
    Usual 3rd Item in ALL my games
    4th item for the max Penetration on the build
    Pretty much the 5th item in 90 % of all games, unless you are to feed and you just buy more DMG
    YOUR LAST ITEM IS MOST LIKELY ALWAYS THIS JUST FOR SOME MORE SUSTAIN AND ADDITIONAL DMG
    TYPICAL FULL BUILD
    tanky version with much less arp but also alot of DMG
    FULL DMG VERSION WITHOUT JUNGLE ITEM

Situational Items

    You can add this for the GA if all you need is some armor against a strong ADC that you can oneshot but might end up killing you
    If the ADC we are talking about has alot of crit you want to get this instead of DMP
    Incase you are 6 items and want to sell your boots or the jungle item
    Against FULL AD combs that might be an worthy early game purchase
    Against combs with alot of CC you want to get those asap
    usual boots for all kha games
    BUYING THIS AFTER THE JUNGLE ITEM CAN BE PRETTY GOOD, ESPECIALLY AGAINST BURST HEAVY AP CHAMPS ON ENEMIES TEAM!

Why so many different builds?


I recommend you to follow the builds for most comps because it's very likely that especially players on lower elos don't know what to build in what situation!

Why do some comps against ad's that dont crit not have a randuins in it?


For example is a 3143.png "Randuins" very bad against some team comps that only run Champions that don't have a huge amount of crit, or that don't need to be kept together!


Why buy Tiamat for the early game?


The 3077.png "Tiamat" is very important to clear waves together with your W if you do lane ganks and there are creeps in between you and your target! It helps you isolate them (IN THE EARLY GAME)

Why sell the tiamat in most of the build versions?


I personally don't like building 3074.png "Hydra" in most cases, unless their entire team is super squshy and i can just kill them with outattacks while focusing some1 else down with my abilitys.

Also it's very important to note, that Kha'zix deals the most DMG with his abilitys, and not his autoattacks or something like that, so having the AA resett from tiamat/hydra is not really important in the lategame, because my W will kill creeps and other things in the way to prevent the isolation anyways.


Why is GA so good?


The 3026.png "GA" is very important for assassins and Kha'Zix in general because it helps you to be revived incase you try to sacrifice yourself to kill their super feed AD or AP carry! Also it gives you resistances and it's price is really cheap! This will most likely help you win alot of games because it's such a powerful item!

VS

Amumu

Easy

She shouldn't be a real problem, she starts to get annoying once she has her level 6 and her ult is up, but it's on a very large cooldown and you can gank much more frequently!


Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Ekko

Easy
Just kill him, go after and invade him as much as you can, once 6.11 is going live this champion will be very horrible.

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Elise

Medium

She's evenly strong as you in the earlier stages of the game, the biggest adventage that you have is your level 6 powerspike, from that point on she's nothing!


She has a very high amount of burst DMG, dont get to surprised if she opens on you and you loose quite a bit of health, keep in mind that her follow up DMG will be really horrible afterwards!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Fizz

Easy
He can't ever deal with you in the entire game, neither early, nor late, just kill him and try to invade him as frequently as you can!

You have easier ways to gank by using your leap for a high variety of ganking paths!

He's a horrible champion to deal with a jungle Kha'Zix, but in my opinion pretty strong once he starts scaling up!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Graves

Easy

He's really strong in all stages of the game, but not as strong as Kha'zix if it's about 1v1ing or fighting in the jungle. If you use your isolation correctly his DMG means nothing and you are high likely just going to blow him up!


Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Hecarim

Easy
He's very fast at moving around the map but if you provide a little bit of vision and keep track on him he will not become any kind of a problem.

He can't mess with you in 1v1 or 2v2 situations unless he has gotten to snowball already!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy
Didn't really meet any Jarvan's lately, but what i can say is that Jarvan also has a very large variety of gankingpaths to use, but he cannot deal with you in any stage of the game. He is not a big problem.

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Kindred

Easy

You can hunt her down in the jungle, but she MIGHT be able to kite you, unless you manage to jump when her Q is on cooldown or something like that.


With the latest nurfs on 6.11 it's unlikely that you will meet her often, but what I can tell you is, that Kha was the onliest jungler in the last patches to deal with her easily, now where she has gotten nurfed you are a direct counter to her and easily able to rip her apart!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!


VS

Lee Sin

Medium
Don't fight him once he hit's lvl 6, he might be stronger than you once he has his ult!

You can probably kill him on all levels of the game unless he outplays you or gets ahead! Just be careful with his ult!

He's really bad at the moment and you should have little to no problems dealing with him.

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Master Yi

Easy

xd

VS

Nidalee

Hard
Usually I would have called this matchup very bad for you, but with the nerfs on the latest patches that she has gotten over and over again I think Kha'Zix is probably going to replace her from the top 3 and will take her seat!

She's still as strong as you in levels 1-5, but once you hit 6 and you avoid her spear you will endup killing her very frequently, she's alot faster than you with jungle clear, but you will have little to no problems tracking and killing her at any stage of the game.

She's as good as you at finding ganking paths, but you will probably have more impact!


VS

Nocturne

Hard
DANGER - OUTPLAY POTENTIAL /// IF HE nocturneshroudofdarkness.png (SPELLSHIELD) YOUR khazixQ.png (TASTE THEIR FEAR) YOU GONNA DIE - BE PATIENT USING IT CORRECTLY!

It's probably one of the few champions that's as strong as Kha'Zix in any stage of the game, his ult has no counterplay and you can only play around it as good as you possibly can, you can most likely kill him quite frequently, but if you realise he's good at predicting when to use his W to prevent your Q from dealing DMG you will end up dying each single time, be careful! Other than that he's probably not a big problem!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Pantheon

Medium
He's far stronger than you on the levels 1-5 but after that he starts to be little to no problem, if you are careful and you don't let him snowball out of controll he will be no problem later on and just a very simple matchup, other than that there is nothing much to say, beside of beeing carefull about his Ultimate!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Rek'Sai

Medium

He is probably way faster in jungle clearing and he is equally strong as you are in the early levels of the game, he has decent amount of tankyness just by masterys and you should avoid fighting or counterganking him till you have your level 6.


He cannot deal with your DMG if you have a straight up 1v1 but he can outgank and outpath you quite easily, he also will become a large problem if you don't take care of his ganking and pathing patterns or he might just snowball really heavily with his amount of base dmg!

You should usually out deal him quite heavily by just using your champion correctly!

VS

Rengar

Hard

He's a very annoying champion to deal with on Kha'Zix, you need to handle your ultimate and all your abilitys correctly to prevent beeing a very easy oneshot!


It's hard to tell which of those 2 predators is going to deal more DMG if you compare their kits and other things based on those 2. Probably Kha can come out ahead, but if Rengar gets ahead he will just get deleted any possible moment. It's the same in the other direction! Be carful!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Rumble

Hard
He has an insane amount of impact at any stage of the game and his ganks might look a little off but once he has acces to his ult he really starts to be INSANE strong, DONT 1v1 him unless you are packed up with lots of Mres already!

His ult is insane, you have no way to outdeal him if hes a master at playing this champion, you can 1v1 him earlier in the game but he can outdeal you at any time possible, you have to be very careful with his heatbar!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Sejuani

Easy
Haven't really seen her in a long time, but what I can tell u is that she has no options to deal with you! Her ult gets annoying but before that you should already have invaded, maybe killed or destroyed her game already!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Shyvana

Medium
She outscales you quite heavily, but she has no options to deal with your ganking if you and your team respect that you will just outjungle her easily, but if you give her time she will eventually go crazy so don't underestimate her!

I would probably avoid fighting her at any stage of the game, especially if she runs exhaust as her summoner, other than that there is not much to say, but this champion is really beasty, you should respect her!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Skarner

Easy
He's incredible tanky and a pretty strong champion at the moment, his DMG is quite decent and his lvl6 + ganks are really annoying, also he has a decent clearspeed.

But if you do it right he cannot deal with you in any meaningful way!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Vi

Medium
She isn't as strong as you in the levels 1-5 but if she's a good vi player she can 1v1 you pretty easily on level 6 +

Her DMG is quite good but you should outdo her in 1v1's also later on in teamfights,
also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Volibear

Hard
This champion is a monster, don't duell with him or pick 2v2's he will just go and delete you.

Try to play around him as well as you may!

AGAIN I HAVE TO SAY - AVOID FIGHTING THIS CHAMPION!!!!!

Also you can deal alot of more DMG by just using your champion correctly!

You have a much higher variety of ganking and pressure paths on the map by using your E Ability to build up pathing!

VS

Xin Zhao

Easy

Kha'Zix as Assassin - Use your Champion correctly Back to Top

How to use Kha'Zix as Assassin and why is he so good?


There are 5 steps that you should always follow if you want to play an assassin succesfull!

1 - Play with Vision!


If you want to assassinate somebody, you should always make sure, that he cannot see you! 
- Use a sweeper to make sure you are not standing on a ward
- Hide on pinkwards and try to bait some1 to run into you

2 - Kill their Backline!


If you want to kill somebody that doesnt have alot of armor, this mostly means you will pass a Maokai or other very tanky champions to get to their 'backline'
- Flanc enemies team by playing with the vision and by using your ultimate or your leap to get in!
- Make sure there is a way out, either with a resett on your jump or by just walking out/flashing/ulting

3 - Abuse people's positioning to get kills!


If you want to get an easy resett on your jump or just a kill that will not translate into yourself dying, your GA dropping or yourself wasting ultimate or other important stuff, than it's mandatory to take care of positioning of their carrys!
- Kill easy killable targets like squishy Janna, Soraka, Lulu, Bard or other Supports like that (example), ofcourse you can also try to use that for other Carry champions or just people that are out of position in general!


4 - The way out!


If you assassinated somebody, you will always ask yourself, holycow what have i just gotten myself into if you end up dying or wasting your flash just for a not very important kill that translates into nothing, so what we do is the following:
- Make sure you find a way out, either by using your resett on the E or by just killing a mandatory part of enemies teamfight what shatters their entire comb so they have to retreat after, or by only walking/jumping/flancing with backup!
- Use your GA effectivley the cooldown is very long

5 - Kha'Zix Ultimate and how to use it the best


If you want to make the best and most effective usage of Kha you want to use his ult, but how do you do that? Don't worry, it's simple! Do it like that:
- If you use your ult you want to make sure nobody has spoted you before you do that!
- Catch people by suprise if you spoted them on a ward and you start runing out of a bush with the ult active to cut their way and to kill them or to force summonerspells!
- Use it to escape bad situations or after assassinating somebody!


Jungle-Route Back to Top

How the Jungle-Route works and why we use it?


Why that route and why is it good?


I use that jungle-route to have the best profit from my bonus XP on the big monster!
By buying both parts of our 3715.png "skirmisher sabre" we already end up getting +50 bonus XP on big monsters and we start snowballing REALLY hard from that point on!

Also we have the HIGHEST POSSIBLE UPTIME on our "Redbuff"! What is VERY important for ganking, also we have a window of opportunity to invade enemies jungler because he will not use this jungle-route and end up beeing out of position for his and our buffs and we might be able to steal 1 away! 




As you can see on the Map (Sorry for the really poor editing, I have little to no Idea how to do it!)

Jungle Route Rek'Sai - angepasst.jpg

Depending on the side of the Map we either do:

1) Blueside - Botside Start:

 
    - Krugz - Wraiths - Wolves // Base 
    - Redbuff - Start Ganking if you find a good option

After that just make sure you clear all your camps at the time they spawn and get controll on what camp spawns when! Keep an eye on enemies buff to see when they spawn and where he started to figure out where he might be now!

2) Blueside - Topside Start:


    - Gromp - Wolves - Wraiths // Base
    - Redbuff - Start Ganking if you find a good option

After that just make sure you clear all your camps at the time they spawn and get controll on what camp spawns when! Keep an eye on enemies buff to see when they spawn and where he started to figure out where he might be now!

3) Redside - Botside Start:


    - Gromp - Wolves - Wraiths // Base
    - Redbuff - Start Ganking if you find a good option

After that just make sure you clear all your camps at the time they spawn and get controll on what camp spawns when! Keep an eye on enemies buff to see when they spawn and where he started to figure out where he might be now!

4) Redside - Botside Start:


    - Krugz - Wraiths - Wolves // Base 
    - Redbuff - Start Ganking if you find a good option

After that just make sure you clear all your camps at the time they spawn and get controll on what camp spawns when! Keep an eye on enemies buff to see when they spawn and where he started to figure out where he might be now!

Warding and avoiding Wards as Jungler Back to Top

Why are wards important?


That's a question that I especially faced in the lower elo's! After I talked to some bronce, silver and gold players I figured that they are not refusing to ward, they just DON'T KNOW what it's good for, to avoid that I will quickly introduce you to the advantages you get by using wards!

Advantages:

- Your team has more information about what is going on at the map
- You have a better overview around some informations and you can avoid runing into a bad countergank
- You are avoiding to be caught off-guard by having a very good view on the situation!
- You can WARN your team about what is going on by placing your free yellow wards and buying a pinkward

Negative:
- NOTHING

How can I avoid walking through wards and the most common warding spots!


That's something very interesting about League of Legends, some of the spots used for warding are very common and you can simply avoid them! 

- Using a sweeper also REALLY helps (upgrade it on level 9)
- Buying pinkwards and keeping some areas clear of wards is MANDATORY

You can see the most common spots for green-/pinkwards on the map below!


Avoid Wards and Common spots - Rek'Sai G

Yes I know it's alot but those spots should ALWAYS be checked because you should never assume that nothing is warded unless you can tell for sure!
The higher you get the more people will know about those spots what makes jungling sometimes really hard, because of that you better always find the most uncommon ganking paths what should be pretty easy on Kha'Zix

(Sorry for the really poor editing, I have little to no Idea how to do it!)
