kayle item question
Heya all, quick question. Since kayle is both melee and ranged, can she build tiamat or the hurricane at all? If so, how does this affect her when she used E?

the way both items works is that they are only active based on your attack class is. its either ranged, or melee. this does not take into account the range of the attack, only what the attack is classified as.

for example riven's ultimate increases her attack range, but shes still classified as melee.

in the case of kayle, she is a melee champion, the moment you cast righteous fury though, her class changes to ranged.

because of this kayle can use both hydra and hurricane, though only when her righteous fury is off or on respectively.

though it would be a waste to have both since you'll only be using hurricane most of the time since you'll have righteous fury active for majority of the fights. but even then the item isnt that great of a choice since it doesnt provide her much at all. other than being able to shred 2 additional targets. but the item slot could have been used much better

Dragon pretty much summed it up; Kayle can benefit from & use Hydra/Tiamat when she's melee (Righteous Fury is off), and she can benefit from Hurricane when she's ranged (Righteous Fury is on). It's also true that because of this interaction, both items are sub-par on her, and therefore both items together are even more sub-par.
