Best Kennen Runes
If you are fighting a varied enemy team composition, you should really consider grabbing him the Electrocute, Taste of Blood, Eyeball Collection, Ravenous Hunter, Cosmic Insight, and Perfect Timing runes. In recent matches, he won the largest fraction of his rounds when using these runes. Yet, if you are playing a more homogenous enemy team comp, such as an AP centric or a crowd control heavy team, you should instead look down and to the right to get the best Kennen runes to defeat your particular combination of foes.

Guide to Playing with Kennen
- Mark of the Storm stuns an enemy after 3 marks; use this to burst down enemy champions or to set up other forms of damage.
- Thundering Shuriken deals plenty of damage to harass the enemy lane champion.
- Slicing Maelstrom, Kennen's ultimate, is great during teamfights if you can get in the middle of the enemy formation. It provides AOE damage around himself.
