Kayle FAQs

Q: Is Kayle better in the early game, mid-game, or late game?

A: Kayle scales quickly as the game progresses and becomes an absolute beast in the late game. She is one of the best hyper-carries in League of Legends and can 1:1 almost any champion when she has completed her full build. At levels 6, 11, and 16, she gains great boosts to her abilities with increased range and area of effect.

Q: Should I build Kayle with AD, AP, or as a hybrid champion?

A: Kayle can be built as either an AD or an AP champion. Hybrid Kayle builds are also relatively common. It's also very common to find attack speed in many of Kayle's items. She gains on-hit and active damage as she levels and gains AD or AP. AD champions are a little stronger against more generic teams while an AP Kayle build deals more burst damage.

Q: Why can't I attack when I use Kayle's Ult?

A: During Kayle's Ult, she is stuck in an animation cycle. The previous iteration of Kayle's abilities let her attack while she was invulnerable, but the current iteration of her powers don't allow her to. For that reason, it's often a better idea to cast it on an ally unless you absolutely need the protection. The ally can then be much more aggressive than you can while invulnerable.

Additional Kayle Build Insights

League of Legends Kayle players could find her to be a difficult champ to build out properly. You'll notice that her build is modified when she is playing against either well-rounded or specialized team compositions, demonstrating you should not select the same Kayle build every single game of League of Legends

The most essential items to incorporate into your champ's build are: Riftmaker, Rabadon's Deathcap, and Lich Bane. Players who included these items in their gear had a higher win rate than players who worked towards other builds for Kayle. Likewise, if you are playing a mixed enemy team composition, you should really consider grabbing Kayle the Precision, and Resolve runes. In recent games, she won the largest number of her games when equipped with these runes.
