AD Kass is viable. Hybrid Kass, is not.

How is ad kassadin viable? Squish, lack of mana, short range, no stun. If that's viable, then ad veigar is viable.

Excellent chase or escape, aoe slow, silence and some additional damage on auto attacks make it a viable build.
AD Veigar lacks utility spells other than his aoe stun. So if you go AD Veigar, you will have 3 worthless spells that will just be in your way, rather than enhancing it.

Believe it or not, I've won a few games with an AD/attack speed build on him. The enemy didn't expect that and it was only done as a counter.

It could work, but no better than any other AD carries - even the bad ones. Besides he's ridiculously powerful as AP in Dom, so why would you?

How is it not? A lot of people don't even build a mana item for a Dom Kass given all the heals scattered about and the short/burst fights. Range doesn't matter a whole lot since he has a constant blink and a silence. The idea is to kill before silence wears. This is more viable in Dom because there are few major team fights and more skirmishes so being squishy as long as you can escape isn't such a bad thing.

Ive seen a guy in dominion in the 2000+ elo that was only playing AS Kass 10+ games straight with 9 wins of 10. He gets malady, wits end, thornmail as his core build i believe. I dont know from there, but he is very successful with it and ranked top 2 in most his games.

Things AD kass benefits from other AD bruisers (Since this is how you build AD kass)
A) Strong escape and gap closer
B) Incredible AD/AS gain (3.9AD and 3.7% AS per level)
C) Is usually picked against strong AP teams (Making atmogs not make you vulnerable to magic damage too hard
D) Can be considered hard to shut down thanks to his passive and armour you will build on him
E) Incredibly high AD damage output if just hit with spells

Well, dont know how viable is Ad/As kassadin in ranked but in normal an good and extremely expensive build is:
Berserker Greaves, Hextech Gunblade, Trinity Force, Wit's End, Madress Bloodrazor and The Bloodthister.

that will give around 320~ Ad / 100~ Ap / 2.000~ As / 100~ Armor / 100~ Magic Armor / 35% Lifesteal / 20% spellvamp

you can say that is a forfun build, but you can solo baron with this build

How the Dominion meta has changed.

I tried tanky mana Kassadin the other day. I was not disappointed.
