Kennen - Shen - Azrael

which one is better for top play ? Im coming back after a while, gragas and pantheon and morderkaiser were not MUCH useful.
Im planning to buy one of the new heroes to get started again(using real money).
so which one of those three is more useful ?

As someone who plays none of those characters, I'd rather have a Shen on my team if I could only choose one.

Shen's ultimate synergizes with teamwork SO well. And he's actually a decent tank.

I would generally vote for Shen.

His teleport ult is pretty awesome, and I tend to do really well with him most games I play as shen. He suprisingly farms really well for a tank.


Kennen I don't really like personally and I see very few people make much of an impact with that hero.

As for Ezreal, I think he is pretty amazing, I am not good enough to smash teams in more difficult games, that might be me, but it might also just be the hero. That being said in games where I do well with Ez I find that he is a pretty devestating damage dealer, b/c he can burst well and is hard to run down.

it depends what the rest of your team pick, if u need a tank be shen, if u need disable be kennen, if you need a finisher or chasing/magic damage go EZRAEL, yes it starts with "EZ". *points to quote*

Out of the 3, Ive seen Shen fail the least

If you're not so good with skill shots, Ezrael wouldn't be your champion

Kennen, I just see her fail comparing to the rest of the team

Kennen = fail

Ez is in a good position now, if you are skilled you will do great with him.

Shen is a good tank, but if i where you i would wait for the next patch with the true feint remake, it could be the one wich is the the ptr now wich made it into a great tanking skill.

I think an important aspect of this game to point out that not many discus is that champions fluctuate in power over time, from patch to patch.

Ezreal was pretty bad before he was buffed the patch after he was released. Jax up and down. Pantheon could get reworked eventually. Kennan could get a buff, but in all honesty his ninja star skill has a long range and damage as it is, so don't expect much of one on a champ with a global buff.

The reason I'd guess against Kennan being buffed much is that he fills a similar role as does Katarina as a ranged Mage killer. Since Katarina was nerfed for being such a good specialist I'd expect Kennan won't see a big facelift.

Shen isn't that good, I'd wait for the next champion who comes with a silence and also doesn't use mana, Garen. He also comes with a speed boost ability so he's more mobile as a Tank which is a plus. Probably will be a force on TT.

Ezreal's fairly beastly if played well.

Shen's an Alistar-tier tank.

Kennen does silly amounts of AoE with ult.

Simply put: Pick whoever you'd rather use.
