Best Kassadin Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in League of Legends

Kassadin is a mid lane champion that sometimes players tend to take to the top lane, he is the best late game champion in League of Legends due to his damage scaling and a hard-hitting ultimate ability. The best Kassadin build seeks to stack him up on a lot of mana since his requirements are arguably the highest in the game so far.

Best Kassadin Build

This build for Kassadin mid aims to increase his AP as he deals magic damage in quick succession thanks to his combos and standard auto attack. To play Kassadin in team fights is rather easy although you can't get too crazy, Kassadin players just have to go in and out using his ultimate ability "Riftwalk", and leave your "Force Pulse" and "Null Sphere" for the pokes.

Best Kassadin Runes

Kassadin's best runes are in the "Domination" and "Precision" trees. In the first section for this patch 12.15 choose "Taste of Blood" which will heal any missing health, then "Eyeball Collection" to gain more ability power as you achieve takedowns as you play League of Legends. Finally, choose "Ultimate Hunter" to gain ability haste anytime you kill an enemy champion.

Ultimate Hunter

In the second rune set for Kassadin choose "Presence of Mind" to recover as much mana as possible after hitting nearby enemies with Kassadin's abilities and "Legend: Tenacity" so you're not as vulnerable to crowd control with each kill you achieve.

Best Kassadin Rune Shards

The best rune shards for the Void Walker that any Kassadin player should pick are Adaptive Force for both "Offense" and "Flex" sockets.

+8 Magic Resistance

In the "Defense" one, select Magic Resistance to resist those champions who deal magic damage, which are common to be against in the mid lane.

Best Kassadin Spells

"Flash" and "Ignite" are excellent summoner spells for Kassadin. In the correct skill order, Kassadin can leap large distance with "Flash" and his ultimate, this way he can hit minions while he reaches a champion because he is a melee champion.

Best Spells




Ignite serves well when it comes to adding up some extra damage to any combo, a good one would be his Ultimate, then "Flash", "Nether Blade", Auto Attack, "Force Pulse", and "Null Sphere".

Best Kassadin Abilities Order

The first ability to level up in the early game for this Kassadin build is "Force Pulse", as it is his most reliable source of ranged attacks, continue with "Null Sphere", and finally "Nether Blade". As always invest points in your ultimate whenever you can.

"Force Pulse" deals additional magic damage as it passively draws spells cast near to Kassadin, "Nether Blade" empowers and grants you auto attack reset, which are vital for Kassadin mid combos to maximize damage. His passive ability "Void Stone", also provides him a shield that absorbs magic damage when casting a spell nearby a visible enemy champion.

Best Kassadin Items

His best items are focused on lots on ability power so Kassadin deals magic damage in huge amounts with his "Force Pulse" and "Nether Blade".

Best Starter Kassadin Items

You want to equip these items in the laning phase while you play safe and slowly build your power spike. If you manage to kill your first enemy with your skill shot or full combo, you'll stack AP with the "Dark Seal".

Best Mid Game Kassadin Items

Once you have these items you don't depend much on getting an enemy hit with "Nether Blade" to recover any a vital amount of missing mana, an by now "Force Pulse" should do a decent amount of damage rather than in the early game.

With your Summoner Spells you can secure a kill in the mid lane thanks to the extra range from Kassadin's Ultimate and excuting a combo in the right skill order in League of Legends.
