Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Start with refillable if you're not scared of getting invaded
    Do this start vs Eve or Shaco; clear all camps on one jungle side after pinking the other side then back or path normally

Core Items

    I feel these in tandem with sated devourer are extremely strong versus tanks. The % health dmg from bork stacks with your % health dmg from passive, and you dish out all of this damage effectively with runaans!
    Mage rework & AP items buffed 6.9. Consider building this more often!
    The % dmg reduction and prolongation synergize remarkably well. This is very useful against split pushers or just 1v1 in general, as well as for being able to survive. Be careful to not split push when the enemy can get a free baron.
    I usually get swiftness. However, if they have more stuns than slows, or barely have slows, I tend to opt for merc treads.
    Typical Full Game Build
    VS ALL AP
    VS ALL AD
    Due to the nerf on the passive of Maw, which made it lose 25% attack speed from shield proc, i opt for merc scim now. If you dont have the gold then build hex drinker 1st
    An awesome alternative to Steraks. It gives a crap ton of health and syngerizes nicely with runaans (OP AOE AA slows).
    Solid VS squishy comps
    Because my build for Kindred is so AA-dependent, I opt for berserkers merely to maximize my damage output.

Situational Items

    If enemy has a soraka, or a lot of champs that sustain like vlad, swain, etc.
    This is a very good overall defensive item. Good option if they have a fed AD assassin or carry. Be careful as it does not proc if you do not take certain dmg in a certain amount of time
    Warrior is better early game. You can opt for this to further snowball a lead or try to snowball early game.
    A splendid overall defensive item. Very useful for those risky late game fights. Pretty much useless after it procs so if youre full build get a different defensive item if possible.
    Very good against CC that can put you in some deep shit
    Very good against poke. Get this if you're against a fed Annie for example; where a QSS alone won't save you from her full combo.
    Splendid item vs crit champs like yasuo or jhin. If theyre fed and enemy team has a lot of AD, go for this 4th item or later.
    Good for AP comps with burst mages. You can use the channel for Baron so you dont get interrupted for smite!

Welcome! Back to Top

Hey I'm pnes. Feel free to read my guide for 203.png, the Eternal Hunters, to rise from Silver to Platinum! (maybe even Diamond, I'm working on it ;) ). I hit D5 by maining 154.png in the jungle. Check out my Zac guide if you haven't already!

                                               Heres a little background to show I have experience with her ~ 
            rsz_kindred_mastery (1).jpg

                                                        Currently hit 100k mastery in patch 6.7

                                                                Right when patch 6.9 hit 5/4

Also, you have to admit, I do have the coolest setup :p
(BTW my twitch is actually twitch.tv/ican0wnu)


Without further ado, let us proceed onto the Op-nes of this champ :3

Pre-Game Back to Top

(SKIP TO THE OVERVIEW IF YOU JUST WANT TIPS AND GAMEPLAY)
Champ-select & load screen are actually some of the most crucial phases in the game. Think of it as the solo-que version of draft pick and preparation that LCS teams do. Rather, for us, its much smaller.

PLAN: What will my most optimal build be? What items should I prioritize? Use Lol Wiz or op.gg or whatever else to also see the overall strength of both teams. Try not to pick Kindred into the likes of an 12.png unless you're not too worried and are confident. Be wary of sustained dmg type champs since your ult is less effective as opposed to versus burst champs.

NOTE: Assess what lanes to gank. How should we play the game? If their composition is stronger than yours early game, then try not to force small skirmishes or engage in 2v2s if that is also stronger ( ie. Jungler and Mid vs Enemy Jungler and Mid). If you see an enemy whose recent stats are somewhat poor, or they look like they're on tilt, then by all means, camp their lane somewhat or look to get yourself and your fellow teammates strong off of them. This DOES NOT mean you focus them the entire game; it is better to target their strongest and/or most skilled player when it is most convenient. 

EXTRACT: Take what you've gathered and look forward to taking advantage of it. Would your team fight be a lot stronger if one of you built a certain something? Look to communicating that with that certain someone. Be assertive, but don't be toxic. 

SET: Put everything in motion. A game of league requires a lot of focus. The fact that they can go on for as long as sixty minutes, its hard to play consistently well and make as few mistakes as possible. If your team is tilted before the game has even STARTED, (team mates have beef from last game or they get into an argument over a position or something), put your pride behind the line and try to resolve it in the most optimal non-LP-losing-way. Do not be afraid to dodge if worse comes to worse. It is much better to lose 3 LP rather than 1232183 LP. Tell your teammates to just mute each other if it looks like it'll wake way too much effort to resolve it and will end up doing more harm than good. Make sure to mute people too if they easily get to you in a negative way that harms your play. Its better to spend time on playing as opposed to arguing.

In order to be able to remember this, just think P.N.E.S. >:D 

The Hunt Back to Top

                                                                             Steps

1. Mark the enemy jungler as soon as game starts. After you have determined your playstyle and optimal itembuild, as well as having determined the strength of your laners and enemy laners, start the side with which you will want to gank from.  If ganking bot then start near them.
Precautions: Scared of invade vs. enemy Eve or Shaco? Start with 1039.png2043.png2003.png. Place pink in the river and keep an eye out for them while you're doing your camps. Farm one entire side and then proceed to B if no easy ganks are possible. 

2. Start with W. Unlock Q after. Your Q is an AA reset, therefore, the best way to farm is AA -> Q -> AA -> W. NOTE: Remember to stay within the wolf circle you make with your W, otherwise your Q will no longer be on a 4 second CD (cooldown). Get E lvl 3. So many nerfs, you are weak early game now. Play safe, farm up! Add a point to your Q at lvl 3 if you're doing a full clear for lvl 4 with 3 health pots.

3. MARK the enemy jungler, or any laner to throw them off. You will get to mark someone again a minute and a half later so no need to worry if you want to gank someone who somehow blew their flash before laning even started and want to look towards killing them. 

Now for the bloodbath/slaughterfest/clownfiesta ~

You can opt for one of two options - clear all monster camps on one side of your jungle and then get scuttle since the first mark seems to spawn on the scuttle on whatever side you're on. This will delay your buffs a bit so think carefully.
You can also go for your buffs quickly and then gank asap.

4. Quickly go as far behind the enemy laner as possible. Ping that you're on your way, but care to not ping too early or too late. As soon as you come up to them, do this combo, Q to get into range for E, and then W for more Qs to proc your E!

                                             kindredQ.png -> kindredE.png -> AA ->kindredW.png -> AA -> kindredQ.png -> AA

                                                  
                                                  Q -> E->AA -> W -> Q -> AA  -> AA -> Q 

           PRESS Q IMMEDIATELY AFTER AA, and do try your best to use Q to dodge enemy skillshots and abilities! NOTE: After every AA, move in a bit. DO NOT just right- click and AA; this actually takes a bit more time. Its better to move in between AAs.

5. You should probably have first blood now. Try to communicate with the lane you're ganking to get them to let the enemy push and make it as easy of a gank as possible.

6. Now be wary; the enemy jungler and laners will take note of your position. The enemy JG might come into your Jungle and take the buff you have leftover, so if you can, ward their buff and see if its up. If it is, chances are they are taking your buff and you can just merely take each others buffs. 

7. Your mark should have spawned by now. Be careful in getting it, and ALWAYS ping that you're going to go get a mark and might need help. Very often. if I go to get a mark in enemy jungle or even the scuttle, they contest it or try to bait me and jump me :(.

8. With devourer gone, your early-early mid game is stronger thanks to Bloodrazor. You also shred tanks even more easily LOL. Be patient and let yourself scale. 

9. Aim to get dragons when most optimal. Keep vision on Rift Herald. Enemies can not pick up the buff if you or your ally kills it!

10. Your mid game should be very strong. Save your ult for when the enemy tries to jump on one of your teammates and burst them down! You can shred front-line but remember to priotize targets effectively

             Heres an example:
                          playbutton.png
                     (If vid isnt showing then youtube Phylol Dealing with tanks Who to hit in Fights)
      Phylol gives great tips on how to play as an ADC main. Since kindred is also a marksman, you can practically apply the same notions. 
Refer to my twitch in the next section as well! 

11. Late game you will be a god if you have been stacking. Remember to keep marking targets and primarily protect your backline and let tanks engage. You can mark targets before ganks or before engaging into fights. Remember to ult allies, especially if your ally is fed. Remember to keep a positive attitude and lead the plebs :3

Twitch Highlights Back to Top

Advanced (Beta) Back to Top

       -   If you Q into a wall, you actually not only make the Q animation instant, but the arrows still fly out to the -three nearest targets!Kin Game example.JPG

       Kindred's ult prevents ANY sort of healing after a champion has reached 10% of their health and is in the circle. Use this wisely; your AA can proc your E. If you've used your E on a target, and they have reached 10% of their health, then save the last proc for AFTER your ult. This means you also wait till there is less than one second because your wolf proc has a delay & travel time. NOTE: This applies mainly in early game. Where you don't have enough attack speed to dish out damage more damage overall and your E proc would otherwise deal more damage.



UPDATES Back to Top

                Patch 6.9 brought many changes Kindred. Most notable of all; her Q cd while in W in early game is now 4 seconds instead of 2.
                  Bloodrazor is stronger than sated devourer earlier, but weaker late-midish to late. The new Guinsos seems very interesting. I'm trying it but its too expensive and you're very vulnerable/squishy. Also, her healing is different now. Your AAs charge up vigor too, (the stacks that reach 100 and heal you on next AA), but moving around charges it slower. Wolf also does 50% more dmg to jungle camps. This was to recompensate for the slower jungle clear and lower damage output so its not so bad :x

KINDRED IS DEAD NOW YOU HEAR ME RITO KILL HER Y RITOOOOOOOOO
On the other hand, wolf more OP now to jungle monsters. Will make kiting easier at the least haha..
