Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash and Smite. Take 100% of the time.


Ignite isn't worth losing the utility flash brings, and smite is flat out mandatory.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Masteries of possible contention - 


Bounty Hunter vs Oppressor:

Bounty Hunter is my go to, simply because Kha's slows come toward the end of our burst, and Killing 3 Unique champs makes bounty hunter flat out better.

Wanderer vs Savagery:

Honestly this one is all opinion and is my most often swapped mastery. The bonus damage is nice but not necessary, and the move speed is useful for trying to keep up with the gank heavy jungles.

Stormraider's Surge vs Thunderlords:

Thunderlords is flat out better since we have so many options to pop the bonus damage,  and if you can deal 30% max life and you don't kill your target, you're probably dead anyway!

Q>E>R>W

*Currently Q first followed by E for resets is the best option. evolve R third if you could use an extra second of stealth and more damage. Only evolve W if your team is dumb and picked a poke comp with God'Zix on the team, Or if you bodied some casual playing Rengo (lul).

khazixR.pngR - First so we can evolve our abilities. Points at 6, 11, 16.
khazixQ.pngQ - Our main damage source. Max first
khazixW.pngW - More damage, and a heal plus a small slow (much bigger slow when evolved!) Max second
khazixE.pngE - Honestly the fact that this does damage is so you can BM leap and kill people. Max last

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Once used to the full clear
    If not used to full clear
    Pinks! pinks!! pinks!!!
    See below: Jungle Item.

Core Items

    45% cdr Normal
    45% cdr and their adc/mid is bad.
    If they have any ap
    Boots all situational

Situational Items

    Situational
Starting items 

Hunters Talisman - For mana regen in jungle, pretty nice if you start krugs and blue is the last buff you take. Machete can be taken if you start Gromp side but isn't really that much of a gain.

Refillable potion - Saves you money on potions, once you can full clear without health potions, take this.

Warding trinket - Helps you find isolated plebs to one-shot. Switch for sweeper at level 9 unless you need more wards.
Jungle item

Skirmishers Blade - Take this if you want to duel the enemy jungler, the mini exhaust and true damage burn is actually insane in 1v1's. If they also take this try to fight them when they dont have smite or when you both do and you can win a 1v1.

Stalkers Blade - In my opinion, pretty bad, the slow usually doesn't help much but if you find yourself being out ran constantly by all means pick it up!

Trackers Knife - Take this if the enemy jungler is a tank, such as Sejuani or Gragas since you wont be able to kill them in a combo anyway, take sweeper trinket if you pick the jungle item up as warding trinket is too much overkill on wards.
Core

CDR is one of kha's favorite stats, as we have 10% naturally we only need 35% on our items

Warrior enchant - 10% cdr and AD? Yes please. If only we had armor pen here...

Black cleaver - 20% CDR, AD, and Shreds armor??? Say no more fam!

at this point we have 40% CDR. To fill the gap i like to take Deaths dance, because its broken on assassins, however you can take Ionian boots if you don't need to position in fights, have tenacity, or take less damage from autos. (yes /s don't take Ionian boots unless you didn't take cdr runes and masteries for whatever reason..)

If you are ahead, I like to go Warrior --> Ghostblade then Black Cleaver. As the active helps you duel, chase, and take out targets split pushing solo.

After you have 45% cdr take note of their team comp. (obviously do this at all times and adjust accordingly 45% cdr means nothing if you get one shot by their Ahri)

Boots

Boots of Quickness - Slow resist and lots of in combat move speed, beats boots of mobility however is more expensive.

Ninja Tabi - I pick these up when the enemy adc has as many kills as I do as they are going to hit HARD!

Mercury's Treads - The enemy team has heavy peel/CC and the mid laner can one shot me, I'll pick these and a quick Hexdrinker to help me stay alive.

Ionian boots - Should be taken in conjunction with certain situations, such as my build looking like Warrior>Black Cleaver>Hydra. where I'm 10% off of hitting CDR Cap. Also take these if you cant afford CDR Runes

For AP heavy comps

Maw - MR, AD, and Bloodline to help stay up through burst. DO NOT BUY THIS AND STERAKS!!!

Guardian Angel - Honestly my favorite 4th item, makes you less likely to be focused because you'll just come back right?
AD heavy comps

Deadmans Plate - Armor and health, is pretty sick PLUS the charge damage on it stacks with our passive giving a shocking bit of burst to our combo. Move speed is always nice.

HYDRA - READ ME!

Ahh yes the good old noob trap, I only buy this for wave clear or if I'm so far ahead I am just using it to get a jump reset mid air. 

Don't Misunderstand, this IS a good item! However it takes practice to make the best out of the item and honestly it isn't 100% make or break your champion, as you can carry without it. It does assist in making those highlight reel plays however.

Duskblade

Honestly it has really good stats, Armor pen and a ton of AD, Complete with a mini-Zed ult. It's a great 5th item if you're ahead or don't need to build any more tank than a GA.

Note:

With Warrior, Black cleaver, and Deaths Dance, I have yet to not be able to solo the enemy adc in a proper fight. This is plenty enough ad and armor pen, I suggest building survivability after this, but this is something that you'll get used to while playing!

VS

Gragas

Easy

This should be easy early on, once he finishes runic/frostborn gauntlet, don't bother dueling him.


Note his gragasbodyslam.png can interrupt your khazixE.png so save the cool down til after he uses it

VS

Graves

Hard

Very annoying, He can duel you really well and counters Black cleaver with his true grit. Seems to have fallen out of flavor, but maybe ban worthy if you have a ban to toss.

VS

Kindred

Easy

Ult can be annoying but shes just another adc if you kill her before she can react

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

This is an explosive matchup, The one who gets the jump on the other always wins, with a slight edge to Lee, Stay careful and take leads where you can get it.

VS

Nidalee

Easy

Dodge the spear, or start the fight. Shes pretty squishy and worthless if not farmed/fed.

VS

Rengar

Medium

Skill based matchup. Leap on rengar first to win. That easy.

Counter his ganks as his cooldowns are longer than yours and the last thing you want is rengo with free kills.

VS

Udyr

Hard

Hard to duel, but squishy at the start. Dont let him get ahead, try to counter his ganks and win 2v2's or 3v3's that are favorable.

VS

Zac

Medium

Clears slowly at the start, abuse him by invading when he goes to gank, or follow him and counter gank. He does become more useful later on.

WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, KID. Back to Top

This section is all about the little things that can make you a good kha'zix player. I'll divide this into three sections.


1. Jungle paths.

This is going to vary a lot base on match-up, side you start on, and comfort. In no particular order.


Blue Team
  Start with your bot lane 90% of the time, unless you think the enemy jungler might try to kill you level 2 at your buff.

1. Krugs - (smite) Level khazixQ.png and auto>khazixQ.png>11.png the big krug, your next auto will stun. level khazixW.png after this camp

2. Red Buff - walk into melee range of the buff, auto a little one, then khazixW.png the red buff. and khazixQ.png the minion you autoed. then auto it again it should die at this point, kill the other little one before you hit kill the buff itself, you can keep track of your Krug buff, and auto the big minion for the stun to take less damage here. Drink on sip of your potion and use khazixW.png as many times as possible to say healthy.

3. Raptors - From the blue teams side, you'll still be level two walk into the middle of the raptors and auto each little one once  then khazixW.png, they should all die but one, auto this one again and instantly khazixQ.png the big raptor for isolation damage. clean this camp up and level khazixE.png or khazixQ.png depending on if you want to gank top or mid.

4. Top side Scuttler - Just take a breath to heal up and regen a bit of mana, khazixW.png it when you can afford to but auto and khazixQ.png's will heal you alot thanks to Hunters Talisman. 

5. Blue Buff - Same as red buff except smite it once you are 100% out of mana. 

6. Gromp - ALWAYS start a camp with an auto then khazixW.png /khazixQ.png for maximum damage dealt to damage taken raito.

Judge lanes and hp and go buy or gank accordingly.


Red Team
 Start with your bot lane again here.

1. Gromp - Do the Auto>khazixQ.png>11.png smite here agian for instant burst. Level khazixW.png afterwards.

2. Blue Buff - Kill the little sentries first then the buff to maximize damage out put be sure to kite back a bit.


3. Wolves - Walk behind the camp auto a small wolf, and w the middle dealing damage to all three, then clean the camp up. Level khazixE.png.

4. Raptors - This camp at this exact point in power has an interesting mechanical interaction. if you khazixE.png into the middle and auto every little raptor once, and then hit khazixW.png the small raptors die instantly leaving you with the big one to clean up. this stays true til your  khazixW.png can oneshot the small ones.

5. Red Buff - Same as blue buff smite the buff for life. Watch for level three Vi's, Lee Sin's, and Shaco's here, as this is the lowest point in your jungle.

6. Krugs - leap over the wall and prefire a khazixW.png on the camp, as you'll need the hp instantly auto>khazixQ.png the little krug and auto again to kill it, then kite the big one back, smiting if necessary. 

Back and buy Skirmishers + boots and potions if you didnt take refillable.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Mechanics.

Kha has a bunch of cool inter actions as far as his combo goes.

The Unseen PredatorkhazixW.png-->khazixQ.png-->khazixpassive.png(auto) 
Use this combo from a bush on a unsuspecting passerby whilst in a bush, you'll usually win the following duel. Note; the auto and Q are interchangeable depending on the champion and situation. I like to Q first so I can Q again sooner afterwards, but it's only a small difference.

The ADC Killer - khazixE.png-->khazixQ.png-->khazixpassive.png-->khazixW.png-->khazixR.png-->khazixpassive.png-->khazixQ.png


Leap to close the gap, and Q mid air. Use hydra here also if you have it. Once you land Auto to apply the passive slow and make your W easier to land, and usually youll have taken damage at this point, so the heal is useful too. Then Stealth with R to reset your passive and reposition, then once Q is off cool down (or if you can kill the target) Auto and Q at the same time, this usually will finish off an adc if you aren't fed, and they were left alone. Feel free to leap out if things are looking grim for you afterward.


Q: But how do I know when to leap out? 
A: That my child, is a question we all have to ask our selves.


3. Thinking "buggy" thoughts.

Lastly as a final word of thought, Positioning is a big thing, don't just jump in randomly, Think Like a Bug and only go in when you can get a kill or get out, or hopefully both!

When playing Kha'zix, look not to gank but to mirror the enemy jungler while farming heavily. Counter-ganking usually ends up in your favor when you can pick someone off quickly, and ganking into a lane with a no cc laner usually means they get away without even flashing. 


And get Hyped, You're playing the best Assassin on the rift!
