Guide to Playing with Kassadin

  • Kassadin needs to be careful during the laning phase because he has little mobility early on and can only get last hits in melee range.
  • Make sure the enemy team is focused on your allies before entering a teamfight, never be the one to initiate or be in the front lines.
