I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong thread ahead of time. I was wondering if anybody else has luck playing Kassadin with a Malady. Whenever your e,q, and r abilities are used you have no damage. With a nice 600 or so AP and a Malady combined with your w ability you have some nice sustained damage. TLDR Maldy on Kassadin, does it work?

You'd need to build him more for sustained damage than burst damage that way, so he could survive long enough to make that work. Technically he does have the highest naked DPS of all champions in the game at level 18, and his magic damage on hit active and attack speed passive can bring him to melee ADC damage levels in terms of damage output. The only problem with that is melee ADCs are outclassed by things like burst assassins and ranged carries in most cases, the former of which Kassadin can also do rather well. Overall I'd imagine he has the stats to pull it off, but there's probably better items for him. If you have 600 AP you're probably infinity better off picking up survivability as well.

I'd probably check the Dominion forums for Kassadin builds though, he's pretty popular (and overpowered) there, so you'd probably have the best luck finding effective builds within those forums.

Thanks, I'm relatively new to Kassadin but have been having some luck with maldy. I will take your advice and take another defensive item besides the standard rod of ages, maybe something like a Crystal Scepter or Guardian Angel.
