The Best Runes, Items, and Advice to Dominate Your Competition
We set our Kalista build recommendations by examining 24,342 recently ranked League rounds with her in them. We only advise the highest winrate Kalista builds that were built by ranked League players enough times for us to advise them. With so many games in our dataset, we are very confident in our provided builds.
If you are looking for more focused build guidance and advice, feel free to take a look at our guide to playing with Kalista at the bottom of the page. Additionally, Kalista builds dedicated to a particular skill rank can be viewed by choosing another rank from the dropdown menu located above. The suggested Kalista build will be specific to that division’s meta.
Best Kalista Runes
If you are facing a well-mixed enemy team comp, you should strongly consider getting Kalista the Press the Attack, Triumph, Legend: Alacrity, Last Stand, Ravenous Hunter, and Sudden Impact runes. In recent matches, she won the largest percentage of her rounds when using these runes. However, if you are facing a more homogenous enemy team comp, such as an AP focused or a CC centric team, you should instead browse down and to the right to get the best Kalista runes to defeat your particular combination of foes.
