Top 5 Builds for Kai’sa

Kai’sa, the Daughter of the Void, is a relatively new champion, marksman, bot-laner, with an incredible 1v1 potential and with multiple build paths. Her abilities can be evolved (sort of like Kha’Zix or Viktor) based on bonus AD (for Q), attack speed (for E) and AP (for W), giving her abilities additional effects: Q fires additional missiles, W adds more passive stacks and E turns her invisible for 0.5 seconds.

Her ultimate lets her dash a big distance and wrap near an enemy champion with at least one stack of plasma (her passive), while also getting a shield. It is ideal for chasing and securing the kill, or for defensive purposes, such as if you are being tower-dived.

Build 1-100% Crit, AD, Attack speed

It allows you to evolve Q and E, but doesn’t have enough AP for W. Focused mostly on auto-attacks, it is very good for all-ins and quickly disposing of your enemy.

Build 2-A mixed build of AD, AP and attack speed

This build allows for all three abilities to be evolved. Her basic attacks won’t deal as much damage and won’t crit, but her abilities are sure to do massive damage.

Build 3-Lethality Kai’sa

With this build you can deal heavy damage with basic attacks and Q. It maximizes Kai’sa’s already huge 1v1 potential, so she can melt any champion, whoever that might be.

Build 4-Another hybrid build

I personally like this build more than Build 2, even though this one is not as used as the other one. I believe this gives you a perfect ratio of AD to AP to attack speed with only 3 items (not including boots), and you can choose then either AD or AP for the last 2, depending on the match-up.

Item build

Starting items:

  • Doran’s Blade
  • x1 Health Potion

Early build:

  • B.F. Sword → Stormrazor
  • Berserker’s Greaves 

Core build:

  • Guinsoo’s Rageblade
  • Nashor’s Tooth
  • Zhonya’s hourglass or Infinity Edge
  • Rabadon’s Deathcap or Bloodthirster

Ability order:

early: Q-W-E-Q

late: max Q

        max E

        max R

        max W

Runes:

PRECISION - Press the Attack, Triumph, Legend: Bloodline, Coup de Grace

INSPIRATION - Magical Footwear, Biscuit Delivery

Bonus:

+10% Attack Speed

+9 Adaptive (5.4 AD or 9 AP)

+6 Armor

Build 5-Full AP, 45% CDR

Here you rely solely on abilities and the magic damage from passive. It is a great build if all your other teammates are full AD and the enemy builds armor.

Item build

  • Doran’s Blade
  • x1 Health Potion

Early build:

  • Lost Chapter → Boots of Speed→ Luden’s Echo
  • Sorcerer’s Shoes

Core build:

  • Rabadon’s Deathcap
  • Morellonomicon
  • Void Staff

Ability order:
