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

Kayle is a champion played in the top lane who has an evolving playstyle once you reach the mid game or late game. What's so good about her is her insane attack speed and attack range of her auto attacks, which is something strange to see in a fighter such as herself.

Best Kayle Build

Her best build highlights her magic damage because yes, playing Kayle means you're going to deal magic damage a lot since she is that type of champion. What makes her so lethal in the late game is the fact that Kayle deals AoE damage with each auto attack only, being able to wipe enemies away to the gray screen, hence why in this build you'll find runes and items that increase her attack speed, even during the laning phase.


Best Kayle Runes

For her best runes, the choices are in the "Precision" and "Resolve" rune tree. In the first part, "Lethal Tempo" is excellent as she progressively gains attack speed as she attacks an enemy champion, ideal for the early game. "Triumph" recovers HP with every takedown. "Legend: Alacrity" grants more attack speed with every kill, and "Last Stand" increases your attack damage as you.

For the second section of runes "Bone Plating" reduces damage from combos, while "Overgrowth" helps gain HP as you farm in the early game.

Best Kayle Rune Shards

For the "Offense" socket, Attack Speed is what you should go for, to ensure fast auto attacks in the laning phase.

+10% Attack Speed
+9 Adaptive Force
+6 Armor

In the "Flex" socket choose Adaptive Force to do more damage with the combos from her skill order. Finally, in "Defense" choose Armor to resist as much damage as possible in the baron lane.

Best Kayle Spells

"Flash", is a must-have for almost all champions when it comes to summoner spells. Everyone knows how it works and the uses skilled Kayle players can give to it in League of Legends.



"Teleport" is an outstanding choice among summoner spells in League of Legends for champions in the top lane to go back to their turret and avoid losing it, or reach a team fight and help your team.


Best Kayle Abilities Order

When it comes to Kayle's skill order, you want to level up first "Radiant Blast", which summons a celestial sword that shreds the enemy's magic resistance. After that, focus on "Starfire Spellblade", which makes Kayle's celestial sword deal bonus magic damage pbuttively. Actively, her next auto attack smites her target with celestial fire, dealing bonus damage proportionate to the target's missing health.


After that one, max out "Celestial Blessing", thanks to this one Kayle heals and gains bonus movement speed for herself and the nearest ally. As always, as she levels up and spends skill points, you should invest in her ultimate "Divine Judgment", which makes an ally invulnerable as a holy rain of swords fall in an area.

Best Kayle Items

Kayle’s best items are focused on taking advantage of the resistance shred from her “Radiant Blast” with items that give her Attack Speed and tons of Ability Power so she can become the hyper carry she is as she deals bonus magic damage with her huge attack range. She can be quite a tough matchup and here we'll explain why.
