IntroductionHello SoloMid users this is my first guide i've ever wrote showing you guys my AP Kayle :)!
Hope you enjoy it and I try to update it whenever I can + I will add more information ~
I got inspired because i've watched GoSu Reidan playing kayle and I just found out he plays the same like me with Kayle so im not the only one who plays AP kayle like this :).
I choose the normal "Caster" Masteries with much Utility and 9 point into Offensive for the extra magic pen which is good for your skills. Nothing much to say about the Masteries i just preferr these one cuz its the best for any caster if you run Flash Ignite , improved flash , movespeed , exp , mana reg , thats all what you need :)!
RunesI take Magic pen in Marks because your Q and E is doing magic damage and I dont see any other Marks that fits with kayle , I would preferr amor/magic pen to every char you take because the other Marks aren't really worth it.
For seals I take Mana reg /per level because Kayle needs mana regen to keep your team full HP with your heal , its very important to have mana as kayle. You can also take AP per level to dmg more heal more but then i would preferr to get some mana regen items like ( , )
For glyphs I choose AP per level to burst more and heal more , Why I take glyphs for ap /level ? Well they are giving the most AP/per level at runes ( from marks , seals ).
For Quints i take AP flat to get a nice early game which kayle needs , you want to burst the enemys down with your Q and heal your lane partner/yourself much. You can also take Flat HP if you feel playing abit too agressive and as kayle your sqiushy until you get your Catalyst.
I choose Flash and Ignite because its just awesome for any caster and my AP Kayle is a caster , I take flash for escaping and chasing which is always good , and Ignite for finishing the enemy off or shut down their healer.
You can also run If you want to play abit more defensive or chase more cuz Ignite allows you to finish of the enemy and ghost allows you to run away or to chase abit more but your W give you much movement speed aswell so i take Ignite over Ghost.
Passive: Holy Fervor
30% of Kayle's attack damage is added to her ability power and 15% of Kayle's ability power is added to her attack damage.
This is a nice passive if you play Hybrid but since we aren't hybird , we are full AP this isnt that useful for us , but still you'll get nice AD even if we get AP so your E skill will do some decent damage later :).
Blasts a target, dealing 60 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 (+80% of ability power) magic damage and slowing its movement speed by 25% for 4 seconds.
While the target is slowed, Kayle inflicts 8 / 10 / 12 / 14 / 16% increased damage to them.
Cost 80 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 100mana
This is your Main nuke , harras ability for Early and later. This skill is my favourite skill of kayle
You Q the enemy and use E right after so you will do 8 / 10 / 12 / 14 / 16% increased dmg which is alot. Also good to talk with your team who to focus so you Q the focused one so your team will do extra dmg to the guy who you used your Q on.
W: Divine Blessing
Blesses an allied champion, healing them for 65 / 100 / 135 / 170 / 205 (+50% of ability power) health and increasing their movement speed by 12% for 10 seconds.
Cost 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80mana
Blessing blessing blessing.. Kayle is such a great champion.. You can heal yourself or your ally and you / him ( who ever you heal) gets some nice movement speed. If your team is chasing but your all full hp you can use your heal on the one who is initating so hes getting faster and can go stun/taunt w/e.
Try to smartcast this so you'll heal alot faster in teamfights which is very important.
E: Righteous Fury
Kayle's attacks strike at range. These attacks splash, dealing an additional magic damage to her target and nearby units take 20 / 25 / 30 / 35.5 / 40% of her attack damage plus magic damage.
The total bonus damage is 4 / 10 / 16 / 22 / 28 base damage plus (+30% of ability power).
Cooldown 22 / 21 / 20 / 19 / 18seconds
This spell is nice to farm early and outrange your enemy , well since its abit more for Hybrid cuz of the base damage we dont need this spell that much , you need it to stay far away in teamfights to heal your team Q the enemy and auto attack the enemys with this spell , you will deal some decent damage since its +30% of your Ap , and we are building AP.
Bathes Kayle's target in a holy light, rendering them immune to all damage for 2 / 2.5 / 3 seconds.
Cost 100 / 75 / 50mana
This spell is what kayle is known for , even if its a joke how short this spell is , this is still useful to win or lose teamfights, your team carry or mage relies on you for some seconds , if you ult the right one you will win the fight , if not , you will lose the fight so learn to use this spell on the right person and you will change games because if your damage dealer cant be killed for 3seconds he can kill much more which he couldnt without your ult so you can change games to give your damage dealer kills.
Skill OrderI max first because its dealing amazing damage with some AP , since we're playing AP this is your only damage skill first.
I get 2nd maxed because you play AP and this heal is AP and its needed for teeamfights etc.
I max last because we dont play hybrid and this is the main damage of hybrid but we still take some levels early on to farm and outrange your enemy if you can.
Whenever you can :).
Item BuildsYou start off with a and so you can spam more skills cause you got much Mana and nice mana regen from runes. Next goal is and then you try to finish your and start working on your . Now its time for some more surivability and you get Situtional items i would preferr ; if they have heavy AD ( atleast 1 or 2 fed AD carry/s). If they have balanced+a strong caster then i preferr or if they have a strong mage and AD then pick up a . At the end I pick up a for nice HP , slow , AP which is great for the end :).
Early GameOk lets talk about early game , you buy a and and move to your lane , you can lane solo but i preferr Duo Lane because kayle is having a heal which is good for duo lane. At ealry game try to focus on last hitting but while lasthitting to outzone your enemy with your Q , if the enemy is very agressive and you dont want to play that offensive cuz you feel that they destroy you early try to sit on your lane and take a early level in your E spell to farm from a longer range. When you got enough gold for a and maybe boots or a wards + mana/heal potions.
*Notice : Try to always carry a ward in your inventory cause wards are the key to the victory if you get map awareness you keep an eye on baron , dragon and your buffs , these things are very important in the game* So early game kayle is pretty strong with a combo ( Use your Q spell on the enemy and try to get him with your E right after you casted your Q so you will do % extra damage on the enemy with your skills.
Mid GameMid game is where kayle is very strong aswell because she can harras much when you guys are poking in mid or catching around the dragon , if you got your RoA in mid game and boots + a part of rabadons you will burst hard already , you will heal much which is very nice cause if your team is getting in troubles just go to the tower and heal your team some , you can still farm some in midgame but if your team is trying to do something you have to be there because your so important in fights , your heal , your ultimate : its the key to win a fight or lose. As i said in the explaination from the Ultimate.
Late GameAP Kayle is one of my favourite late-game champions ~
Lategame you focus on baron / pushing and kayle is a nice pusher because if you got your lich bane and much ap you know what it is , use your E spell and attack tower first attack will burst the tower down and the other hits will do much dmg aswell, so lategame kayle is a great pusher. If it comes to baron Kayle is a very nice role there , if you guys starting baron and some people are low just try to heal them as much as you can because the team can come and suprise you and your team so buy much wards for baron / around the baron to be safe cuz baron is another key to the game. If you see the enemy coming tell your team to fall off back if you were doing baron , its a risk to continue it well if its 1k HP you guys can finish it off but its a risk if its half hp or more because the enemy team can steal it and you guys took some DMG of baron which they didnt so they got baron and maybe full hp , its time to use your ultimate and spam heals and use your combo ( Q + E which is great later on with a lichbane because your Q is doing the most dmg and then a hit with E will proably do 1/4 dmg of their hp with a normal E hit) if you did everything right , buffed the right guy with your ultimate and healed the right people you should lead your team to victory :).
