Summoner Spells Back to Top

I run exhaust and smite. Exhaust will greatly assist in early ganking, as well as engaging onto the enemy ad carry (your primary goal throughout the game). Smite is pretty much a no brainer.

kha zix has some of the best ad ratios of any ad caster champion currently in the game. Going a full ad setup improves your overall jungle speed.

This setup maximizes kha zix's incredible burst. It also improves jungle clear time. The only trouble you will face going this setup is your initial jungle start. I am still able to full clear the red and blue buff, and i will explain more later on.

Q max gives you the most kill potential, especially when you evolve taste their fear (q) at lvl 6. Evolve leap (e) at lvl 11. Your last evolution is up to your personal preference. W will give you better poke and team utility with the slow, and R will help you in 1v1 situations + keep you from getting bursted in teamfights.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Basic starting items for most junglers nowadays.

Core Items

    Primary itemization
    Hydra is more cost effective than Bloodthirster, because it gives you an extra bit of burst to assassinate, or clear minion waves

Situational Items

    Viable core item alternatives (not including Liandry's)
STARTING ITEMS
1039_32.png2003_32.pngx5
  • Machete is a  must buy starting item for clearing jungle, and you will be purchasing 1080_32.png on your 1st recall
  • 5 potions allow you to maintain your hp early on since you won't get much sustain with lvl 1 w. Just keep chugging potions to keep yourself healthy in case of an invade and your 1st gank. I typically burn through 4 potions just clearing both buffs + wolves and wraiths.
CORE ITEMS
1080_32.png3134_32.png1053_32.png1001_32.png3026_32.png
  • Spirit stone will be your 1st purchase. Improved damaged to monsters + the mana and hp regen are vital. This item will eventually be upgraded to 3209_32.png because the true damage burn provides a great addition to your evolved W poke.
  • Brutalizer is your next purchase providing armor pen and cdr (cooldown reduction). This item will eventually be upgraded to 3071_32.png.
  • Vamp scepter is great for a little extra sustain and some increased damage. Will immediately be upgraded to 3072_32.png as soon as possible.
  • Purchase your boots of choice. I find myself buying 3047_32.png or 3111_32.png almost every game. Recently I've been testing out 3158_32.png with great results. Adding spirit of the elder lizard + brutalizer and cdr boots you have 39% cdr with 4% from masteries
  • Going an all damage build you want to  purchase a ga at some point, similar to an ad carry.
SITUATIONAL ITEMS
3035_32.png3068_32.png3151_32.png3156_32.png3190_32.png
Let me just say that all of these items, with the exception of Liandry's Torment could be considered "core items". Reason I don't list them as such. I found my core item list to be the most effective build, but in some cases you want to include some defensive itemization or Last Whisper.
  • Last Whisper is great lategame if the enemy is stacking tons of armor.
  • Sunfire cape provides both effective hp and armor, while managing to do a little damage on the side. Build this if you feel your team needs you to be a little beefy.
  • Maw of malmortius  gives you added survivability vs mages while maintaining your primary goal of dealing damage.
  • Locket of the Iron Solari is an extremely cost effective item. If you're hurting for gold and need a little bit of everything defensively, purchase this.
  • Liandry's Torment will be your very last item and one I have managed to purchase a grand total of 1 time in a rank game T.T. Liandry's Torment will not only increase Kha' zix passive damage but apply it's %hp burning effect on your w. Liandry's torment does reduced damage on multitarget spells (3 damage tics instead of 6), but since your w slows it will do 5% of their hp in damage for each w (thanks to M00smutzel for correcting me on Liandry's damage calculation).

VS

Ahri

Medium

One of the easy to gank before 6 champions. Afterwards it becomes difficult as she can dash away with her ultimate. If you have a mid laner with cc, you have high enough burst damage to kill her even after she hits lvl 6, if no cc mid lane you're better off ganking other lanes.

VS

Akali

Hard

It's very difficult to gank an akali as she can shroud and walk away from your gank. If you want to gank her, try and wait till she uses shroud before going in.

VS

Alistar

Hard

don't mess with the bull, you get the horns!

VS

Anivia

Easy

with red buff and exhaust you can easily gank anivia, who has incredibly slow movespeed and low base stats.

VS

Annie

Easy

no escapes on annie make her a good gank target. Before ganking check if shes got her passive stun queued up.

VS

Ashe

Easy

kha zix thrives on squishy targets. Go ham on this tasty "ashe".

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

While you can gank the blitzcrank, it's best to go for the ad carry when ganking bottom lane ^^.

VS

Brand

Medium

All depends on if he stuns you. Be aware of his high burst after hitting lvl 6. Pyroclasm will do alot of damage if it bounces between very few targets.

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

Shes got alot of kite in her kit. Traps + caliber net make her more difficult to gank then other ad carries.

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

As long as you exhaust her shes a free kill. After 6 be aware she can stun you with her ultimate and play accordingly.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

tough nut to crack. Go ahead and bite if you want to break a few teeth.

VS

Corki

Easy

only one of us can have wings, so take him out whenever possible.

VS

Darius

Hard

downright darius. He can kill you quite easily especially after lvl 6. Approach with caution as you would a wild bear lest you get mauled to death.

VS

Diana

Medium

Durable mid laner, try and gank right after she uses a spell

VS

Draven

Easy

no escape ad carry, easily ganked

VS

Elise

Hard

hard to engage onto elise with her rappel and snare she can escape most ganks. As with all of these champion types your best bet is waiting till they've used spells and ganking immediately afterwards.

VS

Evelynn

Medium

Not a simple target to gank but shes very squishy pre lvl 6. With your exhaust and red buff she can be easily killed. I wouldn't bother trying after lvl 6 unless she has no flash.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

Ad kiting master, frustrating to pin down. After you get evlolved wings at lvl 11 he becomes a free meal.

VS

Fiora

Easy

VS

Fizz

Easy

just wait till he's used leap or pushed far into the lane before ganking

VS

Galio

Medium

not an easy to kill target, but not dangerous to gank

VS

Gangplank

Easy

hohoho and a bottle of raid. He's relatively squishy for a bruiser'ish champ and easily ganked

VS

Garen

Medium

tough one to kill. will likely have to force a flash and gank him again after to secure a kill.

VS

Gragas

Medium

Stand in front of him when ganking so he cant body slam away

VS

Graves

Easy

VS

Irelia

Medium

Make sure you don't stand in her escape path as she will dash to you and walk away. Rather come at a side angle which minimizes her dash distance.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Has an escape comb. Will have to gank carefully, either wait till he uses it in lane or avoid getting knocked up.

VS

Jax

Hard

his leap and stun make him one of the hardest top laners to gank. Best option is to gank him very early on.

VS

Jayce

Medium

Mobile but squishy champ. The trick is to engage as soon as you see him change Ult stance. This will limit his skillset to one stance only.

VS

Karthus

Easy

kill him and kill him again. All zombie players must die... er

VS

Kassadin

Medium

Pre lvl 6 is easily ganked. Afterwards is interesting but trying is everything. I'm a big fan of presence, and simply showing yourself to the enemy makes them play more cautiously.

VS

Katarina

Medium

Katarina generally pushes the lane with her spells while trying to cs. Even though she has a jump, when shes pushing the lane is primetime for ganking and I've always been able to kill her.

Make sure she doesn't have a creep wave coming where she can jump to.

VS

Kayle

Easy

VS

Kennen

Medium

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

Need to either wait till she's used her jump or force her to use it and gank again right after while it's on cooldown.

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

lee sin players tend to play very aggressive. Makes them overextend and easily ganked, watch if you notice them doing so.

VS

Lulu

Hard

Lulu is one of the most annoying champs to play against as kha zix. Her ultimate is a nightmare for any assassin type champion. Always calculate her ability to shield and buff hp.

VS

Lux

Easy

VS

Malphite

Easy

VS

Malzahar

Medium

malzahar players always stand way back in the lane while pushing with their spells. better off ganking elsewhere

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy

VS

Morgana

Hard

Morgana players tend to play very safe making them difficult to gank.

VS

Nidalee

Medium

Best advice is don't gank her by walking into bushes where she has put down traps.

VS

Olaf

Medium

Can you dodge a wrench? How about some axes. Run the zigzag formation when ganking this monster of a top laner

VS

Orianna

Medium

Easy to gank early on, becoming increasingly difficult as she lvl's up.

VS

Pantheon

Easy

very aggressive laner, which makes for good ganking

VS

Poppy

Hard

the only poppy player you will see is me, so don't gank me pls T.T

VS

Renekton

Easy

semi aggressive top laner which can make for an easy kill. Always watch and ask if renekton is playing aggressive. I list him as easy because he pushes the lane almost constantly making him open to ganks.

VS

Rengar

Hard

op needs nerf. secret quest for 4th evolution if you kill him after lvl 16

VS

Riven

Hard

riven is both difficult and easy. Patience is your friend, when trying to gank her you must wait for her to use spells before going in.

VS

Rumble

Easy

all rumble pickers must die. Most rumble players build offensively making them easy to take down. Be aware of rumble being able to dish out incredible damage as you might want to have exhaust available before going in.

VS

Ryze

Easy

squshy target who's forced to autoattack alot for last hits. Watch him moving forward for a last hit and choose that moment to go in.

VS

Singed

Medium

kill it with fire! Singed is difficult to gank because he can fling you. Best advice is gank early as most singed players don't pick up their slow till lvl 5.

VS

Sion

Easy

melee caster. wait for him to pop shield on minions in order to cs and engage immediately after

VS

Sivir

Easy

VS

Sona

Easy

VS

Swain

Medium

tanky ap. Make sure you leap over the snare.

VS

Syndra

Easy

so many balls and still so weak T.T. I'm waiting for her buffs and I do not mean added cleavage.

VS

Talon

Easy

squishy ad caster. As with irelia you don't want to gank from the direction he will run towards, as he will simply jump to you and walk away.

VS

Teemo

Easy

op needs nerf. however pre-6 gank to your hearts content. After teemo hits 6 you want to gank through lane as the river will have shrooms.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

VS

Twitch

Easy

VS

Varus

Easy

VS

Viktor

Easy

VS

Vladimir

Easy

VS

Wukong

Easy

VS

Xerath

Easy

VS

Xin Zhao

Medium

pre 6 hes easily ganked, just remember he can dash towards you. After lvl 6 he can simply ult you away from him.

VS

Yorick

Easy

tell him to prepare one extra grave muahahaha

VS

Zed

Medium

squishy champ who has an escape ability.high cooldown on his w so do the old loop de' loop and swing around for gank #2

VS

Ziggs

Easy

Squishy ap caster who can poke you well, if you aren't being careful. Pre lvl 6 focus on last hitting only and sneak in a few w pokes to keep him from playing to aggressive. Post lvl 6 poke him down to 1/2 hp and stand in the side brushes to jump in for your burst combo.

VS

Zilean

Easy

gank him early on before he can pick up the speedboost. Even afterwards you have enough burst to take him down. The clock is ticking for poor old Zilean

VS

Zyra

Easy

she spams spells to waveclear, so gank after she does so.

Early jungle onwards Back to Top

Always start red or blue buff to naturally end up top lane. Ganking top lane early on is one of the easiest ways to snowball the game. Mid lane is also easily ganked as they typically have little to no armor from runes/masteries (remember to use that exhaust). Just jump into the lane with e, follow up with exhaust and roll that face on the keyboard. Bottom lane is generally hard to gank early with heavy ward coverage, but once you hit 6 it becomes fairly simple. You will want to ult into the lane and jump into the fight, use that w to slow and allow your lane to engage.

As the mid game begins and teamfights start to take place you will have to play more cautiously. Always poke with your w before fights take place, and wait for your team to engage before going in. Isolate the enemy ad carry with your ult + leap engage and turn on the next available target afterwards.

Some tips: You are able to pull the large buff monster away from the little ones, to get isolated q damage. The heal from W only works when you are within the explosion range. Remember evolved R gives you 50% (50 freaking percent) damage reduction, which if used properly can mitigate some serious burst damage. Your ult will trigger you passive "unseen threat" after every cast regardless of whether the enemy has vision of yuo.
