Guide to Playing with Kayn
- Don't always select the same Kayne form. Make note of what players are chosen on each time before selecting Kayne's form.
- Select Shadow Assassin if your team needs extra damage or if you need to eliminate a hyper carry in team fights.
- Darkin Kayne has much more sustain, but can still deal plenty of damage. Choose the Darkin form if you need more sustain in fights.
- You build blue essence (shadow) by attacking ranged champions and red essence (darkin) for damaging melee enemies.
