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.
