Summoner Spells Back to Top

Standard spells for jungle, you could also pick kha'zix for top lane and mid lane but he works best in the jungle, if you want to go toplane khaz its perfectly fine but its gonna be harder since most toplane champions are tanky fighters and most of them counter you, you could say its a non-meta pick.


4.png- perfect for making plays and escaping, you must take flash no matter what.

11.png- an obvious choice for a jungler.

Masteries Back to Top

Standard Page for Khazix: 
-lets start with the keystone masteries, you have two good ones on khazix, 1- ThunderLord's Decree
2- Stormraider's Surge

Thunderlord's is the best one, it gives you more burst potential and all and all more damage, Stormraider's Surge can be very helpful sometimes, it gives a lot of movement speed and will help you escape easier, i take this sometimes and I really do like it, but still, thunderlords is better.
Now the other ones;

Ferocity 12:

- Sorcery:you dont need attack speed khazix at all so no need to take fury, sorcery will give a boost to your abilities.

- Fresh Blood: in this row this is the best one, the other two aren't that useful on you.

- Vampirism: gives a little bit more sustain and is much better than natural talent

- Bounty Hunter or Double Edged sword: I'm gonna leave this one for you to choose, both are really good on khazix, take bounty hunter gives you extra damage as you get more kills, Double Edged Sword lets you deal much more damage but you'll also take more damage from enemies.

Cunning 18: 

-Savagery: you absolutely need this since you are a jungler and you need fast clears.

-Assassin or Runic Affinity: take Assassin for more damage when assassinating targets, take Runic Affinity to make your buffs last longer, this will help your ganks a lot but I prefer assassin for the damage it gives you when no allies are around especially when you're invading enemy jungle.

- Merciless: with this mastery your Q will deal massive amounts to low HP targets

- Greenfather's Gift: gives you more burst when unseen which is exactly what you need.

- Precision or Intelligence: these two are both amazing, but.. you need the lethality Precision gives you, having the extra 5% cdr with Intelligence is good too but you already have 5% cdr from your runes; if you're not running cdr runes then take it. And lets be honest here, you dont actually NEED 45% cdr in late game, the lethality is much more worth it.

ABILITIES AND EVOLUTIONS: 
I will first write the ability descriptions then talk about them, you can skip the description if you already know what they do: 

khazixpassive.png  Unseen Threat:

When Kha'Zix is not visible to the enemy team, he gains Unseen Threat, causing his next basic attack against an enemy Champion to deal bonus magic damage and slow.

Unlike before the ap ratio on your passive is gone and now its actually better than before, you can make a lot of use of this passive if you're smart, for example, if you're fighting someone in the jungle chances are a bush is nearby, try to move in between the bushes to reset your passive while you wait for your other abilities to get off cooldown, it deals a shit ton of damage so make the most use of it. 
 
TRICK: there is a nice little trick you could do with your passive, when you use it on a champion it wont come up again until you are not seen by the enemy team, so when you attack a champion then leave for example and step in a bush near there, check your passive, if you don't if its not up, that means the bush is warded! 


khazixQ.png Taste Their Fear Q:
 Kha'Zix passively marks enemies that are isolated from nearby allies. Taste Their Fear deals physical damage to a single target. Damage increased on isolated targets. If he chooses to Evolve Enlarged Claws, this deals extra bonus damage against isolated targets. Kha'Zix also gains increased range on his basic attacks and Taste Their Fear.


Okay this is khazix's main source of damage and always has been, lets talk about the preseason Q, it deals damage damage to a single target and more damage if the target is isolated, you must ALWAYS look for fights in which the enemy is isolated from their allies, because if not you'll deal much less damage and are at more risk of dying; also, when clearing camps you should kill the smaller monsters first to kill the big one faster, but nevertheless this isn't a big problem anymore since this is preseason and the big buffs like Red and Blue are always isolated (btw this was an indirect buff to khazix). 

khazixQ.png Evolved Q: Evolve 1st at LVL 6:

In preseason khazix's evolved Q has changed, dramatically, it no longer gives more damage if the target is isolated, dont get this wrong it still deals more damage to isolated targets but it only comes from the Q itself not the evolved Q, the evolved version instead gives you attack range and most importantly, a massive reduction in Q's cooldown if the target is isolated,a lot of people like the new evolved R but I think the Q is much better, why do I think you should evolve it first? because of many reasons, clears are sooo much easier with this, those blues and reds die in no time and they're always isolated, and dude.... dragons.. you will just destroy dragons, and this is what you need, more dragons, more stats for your team, evolved Q will overall really help with early dragons for your team.
Another reason is 1v1'ing someone, with this insane cdr, even if you're a little bit ahead they have no chance! of course when they're isolated, I know it doesn't have that much damage anymore, but its still really good.




khazixW.png Void Spikes W:

 Kha'Zix fires exploding spikes that slow and deal physical damage to enemies hit. Kha'Zix is healed if he is also within the explosion radius. If he chooses to Evolve Spike Racks, Void Spikes fires three spikes in a cone, and Void Spike's slow effect is increased.

A slow and healing ability that is especially most useful in the jungle, it will help you sustain much more with the heal and acts as a small AOE towards jungle targets, you need to max this second after your Q; it also helps you slow enemies to get close enough to Q them, you need to be a little bit smart with your W, don't always shoot it when you're far away from the enemy, first close the gap then use it to get the healing effect too! seriously that small healing might save you, I'm talking about fair fights where both of you are on the same level in the game, but if you're like 15/0 then forget whatever i just said just jump and press Q and they're dead!! 
Lets say you're in a fight with someone like jax and both of you back off with 100 hp, he'll probably look jump and you and kill you, but.. if you save W and time it just right to get the healing effect you're gonna win the fight! this W healing is a life saver!

khazixW.pngEvolved W: 

Evolved W gives you more slow, a lot more slow, when the target is isolated, and you hit them by evolved W they're slowed by 80%! huge I know, but the other evolutions are more worth, it sure is a lot of slow but you dont NEED it really, I almost never evolve it but honestly its your choice you could evolve this instead of you R or Q.


 khazixE.png Leap E:

Kha'Zix leaps to an area, dealing physical damage upon landing. If he chooses to Evolve Wings, Leaps range increases dramatically. Also, on champion kills or assists, Leap's cooldown resets. 

A small jump that is basically your gap closer and your tool to escape, when you evolve it it becomes one of the best abilities in the game! but more on that later. Leap deals a small amount of damage, try not to use it too much to damage jungle camps ESPECIALLY in the enemy jungle, because if they invade you, or when you're the invader and they see you you wont have your escape, but feel free to hop over walls to new camps in your own jungle.
You must ALWAYS save your leap when you're ganking, wait for their flash or escapes to be burned and THEN use it to get on to them.

khazixE.png Evolved E: Evolved Second at LVL 11:

I cant stress how important this evolution is, you must always evolve it in every single game no matter what, without this you're not khazix, either second or first, I usually evolve second after Q, when evolved it gives you the best gap closer in the game, and it also resets on kills and assists, its your tool for assassinating squishies in teamfights, and getting the hell out of there, or just jump on others, depends on the fight, also, you can do the coolest most amazing looking trick with evolved E, I'm talking about double jumps of course! 


khazixR.pngVoid Assaul R:

Each rank allows Kha'Zix to evolve one of his abilities, giving it a unique additional effect. When activated, Void Assault stealths Kha'Zix, triggers Unseen Threat, and increases Movement Speed. If he chooses to evolve Adaptive Cloaking, Void Assault can be cast three times and stealth duration is increased.


This ability is what makes Khazix unique from all other champions, it has the passive the lets you evolve your basice abilities giving them each a new unique effect, also changing how you look in game which is epic! seriously no champion changes colors throughout the game or get larger wings or longer claws! anyways lets get to the important stuff, the passive as we said gives you evolutions, but the active makes you invisible for 1 second, and now thanks to the preseason reworks, pink wards (now known as control wards) wont spot you! so you can make pretty sick plays and especially escapes with your R, you can go invisible twice (when not evolved) each time resetting your passive since the enemies don't see you.
You can use it in a million ways, lets talk about some of them:


1. Ganks: when you gank and you're sure the bush (or somewhere near) you're standing in is not warded, press R then immediately walk into lane, you'll have a free second to move and the enemy will have much less time to react!

2. Escapes: Lets say someone is chasing you and you're running away in a direction, an average kha player will press R to run faster but no, that's not always good, what I do with my ult is change directions 98% of the time, they never see it coming, when they're chasing right when you press ult, change directions, they still think you're going the same way and you'll escape, of course it all depends on the situation, if you're sure the movement speed only will save you, then use it on the same direction, it all depends on the situation really, you must find whats best to do right then and there, when you evolve R its gonna be much much more effective since you'll stealth for much longer and could use it a 3rd time, if they cant CC or burst you immediately, they wont catch you!

3. Damaging or dodging: It increases your 1v1 win potential by a TON! since it will reset your passive, but, when in 1v1 you need to time it right, lets say you're fighting Vi, you must use it when she tries to Q you, that way you could dodge it much easier since you'll move faster and you'll be invisible so she wont know where to aim! I mean vi is just an example but there are hundreds of situation where you could use R to dodge something. 


khazixR.png Evolved R: Evolve Third at LVL 16:

This new evolved R is amazing, I prefer evolving Q first but if you want to evolve this first its perfectly fine, when you do you can move around the jungle much much faster because you will stealth and gain movement speed each time you step in a bush, if you use this correctly you can do more ganks, and make more plays, you'll be stealthed like a true assassin most of the time and they wont see you coming, when evolved, dont step in the bush all the time, because you'll stealth immediately and put the bush on cooldown for your next stealth, lets say you gank mid, go near the mid bush (that is if its not warded) but dont step on it, when you think the time is right walk right into the lane meanwhile you're getting stealthed by the bush for 2 seconds!! thats actually pretty crazy! they most likely wont survive the gank.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard First Buy
    On your first back, if you have 1100g then buy this, not the smite item, I always buy this, it will give you so much early damage + the cooldown, but the jungle monsters will hurt more.
    You need one of these, build stalkers for more damage and chase potential, skirmishers if they have burst, and trackers to be more of a team player and ward the map; I prefer the stalkers the most.
    Buying this early will really help you sustain in the jungle both HP and mana wise, and most importantly, it allows you to give blue to you mid laner since you wont need mana!
    If you are planning on invading the enemy jungle and you are confident you can do it, this item is a very good buy on your first back, don't buy this if you're behind though.

Core Items

    You need to rush one of these, the smite bonuses are explained above
    Youmuu's is an amazing item on khazix, it gives you cd, damage, movement speed, lethality, everything you need! you should get this second item after you jungle item, make sure to use it with you invisibility to be stealthed for longer!
    Hydra is also a good item, but there better items right now, if they have a lot of squishies, then buy this, if not, you need lethality from the other items so dont build this; also, this item makes double jumps easier ;)
    I love what they did with this item, and it is especially broken with khazix! you should definitely buy this after youmuu's, it gives lethality and attack damage and its passive resets every time you stealth and disables wards near you, a truly perfect item!
    Black cleaver is still a good choice, 20% cdr is a lot! and it gives health giving you more survivability, you could say this is a "safe" item for khazix.
    This item is absolutely amazing, its gives back health for every time you use your Q or W, and with evolved Q you'll be spamming that sh*t all day so definitely buy this after duskblade.
    If their mage is fed you must build this to survive, or they'll burst you before you do anything, always start with Hexdrinker then into Maw.
    Guardian angel is an amazing 6th item for the late game, its never a bad choice!
    Boots of mobility are my favorite on khazix, you'll gank a lot more with this not to mention its synergy with evolved R, but you could also go other boots like swiftness boots if they have a lot of slows or mercury treads if they have a lot of CC

Situational Items

    Is it late game and you have gold to spend? sell boots and buy this!
    If they have lock-in champions like malzahar this will help a lot.
    If they have lots of armor build one of the last whisper items, mortal reminder if they have a lot of healings, lord dominik's if they have beefy tanks.
    Dead Man's Plate is a good choice on khazix and many kha players build it, it gives a lot of movement speed and health, build this if their comp is ad focused.
    Not that good of an item on kha but not bad either, take this if they have lock-in cc, something like warwick, malzahar..etc.
    This is another good assassin item, giving MR stats and movement speed + lethality, learning how to use its active might really save your life from bursts or hard CC.

VS

Aatrox

Easy
Very rare jungle champion but if you see it you'll win, he relies on auto-attacks to kill you and you have a million things to counter that, burst, slow, stealth, jumps.. etc 






































































































































































































































































































































VS

Amumu

Medium

If this guy gets ahead it would be really hard to kill him because he has so much cc and damage and hes tanky as fuck, so dont let him get ahead.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Cho is really tanky and does tons of true damage, be careful not to get caught by his rupture.png Q

VS

Diana

Medium

I'd say diana depends on you dodging that Q, if you don't she'll burst you faster like an assassin, she's categorized as "fighter" but she's definitely an assassin, just be careful around her shes not that hard to kill.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Mundo jungle is not that common but hes a pain in the ass if hes good at throwing those axes, you might need cleaver 3071.png if he gets ahead, but dont let him, invade him early he's easier to deal with 

VS

Ekko

Medium

This guy is a pain in the ass no matter where he goes (in the right hands), but i'd say this matchup is between easy and medium.

VS

Elise

Hard

One of your biggest counters, if shes good, you're done for that game, because you'll automatically deal less damage to her because she got her spiderlings, and you cant burst her cus all elise's buy tanky items, elise is a common jungler so i'll go into detail:

When to NOT fight Elise: If shes in human form BEFORE a fight, do NOT engage her, because she'll instantly eliseE.png Cocoon you then W eliseW.png then Q eliseQ.png and goes into spider form with 3 4 spiderlings by her side, you wont be able to kill her only to escape maybe (note that im talking about a situation in which you're not mega fed, if you are then it wont matter but if shes smart you wont get fed)

When to fight Elise: Consider building hydra 3074.png use the active effect with your W khazixW.png to kill her spiderlings to isolate her and increase damage, you might not think it matters, trust me khazix is all about isolation damage. Also, when you see her transform from spider to human form, jump on her immediately and try to burst her, then you'll have a few seconds before her spiderlings come up again.

I you still struggle build Magic Resist.

VS

Evelynn

Easy

She's really squishy early game so take advantage of that and invade.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium

You will either destroy him, or he'll destroy you, he has a lot of sustain and cc so you must be smart as to how to fight him and where, never underestimate his fear terrify.png at high levels the duration will be so long, wait for him to use it then jump on him or if you're sure he'll die before he can react.

VS

Fizz

Hard

Fizz was always a counter to Khazix, and still is, and this new fizz is even worse, you need to be really careful around him especially after 6 because if he hits the fish fizzmarinerdoom.png he'll probably burst you and of course you wont be able to stealth since the fish is on you.

VS

Gragas

Medium

Gragas used to be a nightmare for khazix, but after the nerf hes not all that much, and people dont play as often, you still need to be careful because hes still somehow strong and builds a lot of tanky items.

VS

Graves

Medium

This guy is so strong and will always be hard to kill, you'd think hes squishy but no he definitely is not, every graves builds skirmishers so you wont be able to burst them + a lot of tank stats from their E ability gravesmove.png also he has a lot of burst with his Q and R, only engage him if you're sure you're gonna win it.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

Hecarim is absolutely unstoppable if he gets ahead, nowadays heca players rush triforce, so he'll have a lot of damage and tankiness, you must farm up well enough to be able to kill him, a trick against him is that if he wants to rush you with E hecarimramp.png wait for him to get close then use your stealth and go the opposite direction hes going, if you're near enough he'll just you and fear you.

VS

Ivern

Medium

To be honest i have no idea about this champion xD I know his abilities but I havent been against them since people dont really play him, but i'd say it'll be a bit hard to kill him, he is really tanky and has a long ranged cc, not to mention his ult which will "un-isolate" him, is that even a word?

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

One of the easier junglers to deal with, you just have to dodge his E jarvanivdemacianstandard.png Q jarvanivdragonstrike.png combo.

VS

Jax

Easy

Easy to deal with, jax is strong against AA (auto attack) champions like yi or tryndamere, but you are a bursty champion, so dont worry.

VS

Kayle

Medium

There is just one thing with kayle, her ult, what you need to do in 1v1's is use everything but your R khazixR.png wait until she uses her ultimate kayleR.png which lasts for about 1.5 seconds im not sure, THEN use your ult, this will counter her ult and make it useless and she wont be able to deal damage she doesnt see you, when its over start damaging her.

VS

Kindred

Easy

She kites well but you're a champion thats hard to kite around, it should be easy, when she ults, save your Q khazixQ.png and use it when it finishes. 

VS

Lee Sin

Hard

I'm just gonna say it, if he knows how to play lee, you're fucked.
try to dodge his Q in fights although it'd still be hard since he can do a million other things, and most lee's will invade you; but on the bright side if you're good with lee then pick him against khazix :D

VS

Master Yi

Medium

Its gonna be a bit hard killing him because most master yi's go with skirmishers and build dead mans plate, not to mention his damn W meditate.png use your ultimate after he uses Q alphastrike.png 

VS

Nautilus

Easy

Another tanky cc jungler, shouldn't be hard as long as you dodge his Q nautilusanchordrag.png also try to save your leap khazixE.png and use it when he ults you so that you'll be knocked up in a safe distance.

VS

Nidalee

Medium

Skill based, nida is a high elo champ, if she knows what shes doing then it wont be easy killing her, if not well then you'll destroy her.

VS

Nocturne

Medium

He can lock you down with his ultimate nocturneparanoia.png and fear nocturneunspeakablehorror.png when he ults you, try to jump away immediately to not get feared, and try not to use Q when his W nocturneshroudofdarkness.png is active, that one Q might be life or death.

VS

Nunu

Easy

This guy is super annoying BUT he should be easy for khazix, most other junglers will get slowed and slowed until they die but you can escape him, you can also duel him, if hes not too ahead.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

It should be easy, its just annoying that he blocks your passive, fight him after you're level 6.

VS

Rammus

Easy

In my opinion this is a pretty easy matchup, hes strong against AA champions and you're not one of them, though he has a lot of armor; just try to avoid being hit by his Q powerball.png by ulting in a different direction when he rolls toward you.

VS

Rek'Sai

Medium

I dont see him much anymore but he's still strong, lots of tankiness, a nasty knockup, he also sees you even if you ult if hes burrowed!

VS

Rengar

Hard

This matchup is skill based, but I rated it Hard because rengar is an absolute monster right now, hes just broken, hes strong against everyone, hes much stronger than the previous rengar so be very careful; if you see him ult, DO NOT use yours, he'll still see you, by the way there is an interaction if this happens where rengar says ( I see you wretched creature!) cool right! anyways, when he ults, use yours exactly after he jumps on you to get away, he'll still crit you not matter what though.

VS

Sejuani

Hard

Has a lot of damage, lots of cc and tankiness, just hope she doesn't get fed or she becomes impossible to kill in 1v1.


VS

Shaco

Medium

Its become like a tradition with shaco, if they pick it, means they'll invade with ignite, most if not all shacos do that, so always ward your jungle, its a skill match up.

VS

Skarner

Medium

The only annoying thing about skarner is his ult skarnerimpale.png dont let him cast it on you, most of skarners take ghost so be sure to use R or jump away if he ghosts on you.

VS

Vi

Medium

Shes one of those champions that deal a ton of damage even if she goes full tank, dont get baited by her shield, meaning dont jump on a low health vi you know her passive shield is back on, she'll just Q viQ.png right away and knock you mid air while getting a shield, I'v died many times like that.

VS

Volibear

Hard

Don't fight this guy, he has SO much damage with his W volibearw.png and dont get baited by his passive ALWAYS check if its on, if it is then dont fight him cus you'll probably die.

VS

Warwick

Easy

Nothing scary about him, just his ult, wait for him to use it then jump on his ass.

VS

Wukong

Easy

Easy, just dodge his ult, I don't mean don't get knocked up, thats fine what I mean is you should ult away to safety and wait for it to end then fight again, watch out for his decoy monkeykingdecoy.png jukes.

VS

Xin Zhao

Medium

Keep your distance in fights because he can burst you, in my opinion Xin is OP, for khazix he shouldn't be that hard.

VS

Zac

Hard

If he's good with zac he'll land those slingshots zacE.png and chain cc you and kill you, you must dodge them, and just ult away if he ults near you.
