Don't touch my Kassadin. He's perfect the way he is.
If you're having trouble farming on Kass, start with a Doran's shield instead of ring or sapphire crystal. Makes it much easier when you can regen an auto attack or two fairly fast.
But like it's been said, Kass is a great champ late game. Yes Ashe and Ez can farm better than him. He can also destroy Ashe and Ez.
