Key word being "typical". You always want to adjust your plans based on the opposition you're facing, and I think that's especially true for Kayle's abilities. There are games where I've maxed out Divine Blessing before I took a second rank in Reckoning, and it's worked.

1-Reckoning
2-Divine Blessing
3-Reckoning
4-Righteous Fury
5-Reckoning
6-Intervention
For 7+, Intervention>Reckoning>Divine Blessing>Righteous Fury.

Spells: Teleport and Promote.

Items:
-Maki's Pendant
-Upgrade to Chalice of Harmony (Do this ASAP, it's perfect for a mana guzzler like Kayle)
-Boots of Speed
-Glacial Shroud (Cooldown reduction)
-Upgrade to Mercury's Treads (These are solid gold, absolutely vital when playing rear guard for retreating teammates)
-Upgrade to Frozen Heart
-Warmog's Armor (I've tried various alternatives, but keep coming back to this one.)

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Since AP Kayle is basically useless in the early game lately I'll give this build a shot and let you know any thoughts.

Does anyone go Divine Blessing - Righteous Fury - DB - RF in the early game? I find it awesome as it really racks up gold for Kayle.

Reckoning harass is actually quite effective, so I like to do that. You don't really need Righteous Fury to last-hit, and if you're reliant on it, you're going to miss a lot of kills in between cooldowns.

I feel Reckoning is essential because it makes the other team keep some distance, so you can get in and last-hit. If you invest in Righteous Fury, you're really only going to be able to last-hit when it's up, otherwise you're going to get kited around by enemy heroes.

But I also build Kayle as CD Reduction/AP/Attack Speed, so *shrug*

Thanks. So the splash damage from RF isn't worth it? Oftentimes it kills a lot of enemy minions, bring me money. But then again, I'm a first time player. I need more input. Thanks!

This build's early game behavior is essentially Reckoning harassment with an emphasis on quantity over quality- having enough mana to just use it over and over. Pulling off a kill and/or saving a teammate often requires the use of 3 or even 4 abilities in rapid succession; my first two priorities are having adequate mana and plenty of cooldown reduction.

Edit: I don't normally use Righteous Fury to finish someone off- but having a ranged attack is still damn handy for a variety of purposes:
-Harassing/wearing down an enemy (If you wait until a melee character's being attacked by other creeps, they often won't notice you're hitting them right away).
-Farming when you don't want to get any closer to the enemy.
-Killing ranged creeps that're in range of the enemy tower, so that your own creeps don't get bogged down fighting them.

Ok so it's a consensus: the divine blessing - righteous fury skill allocation farming build is not so good. Thanks. I'll try playing this one tomorrow.

" my first two priorities are having adequate mana and plenty of cooldown reduction." ---- Frozen Heart ASAP? Or should I make a stopover for an Atma?

I don't normally get Atma, because late-game I'm focused on playing a Support role. Kayle's fairly flexible, so you shouldn't be afraid to experiment with other builds based on your preferred approach.

I actually find Righteous Fury to be great early game - you can farm with the best of em. Added to it a lot of damage bonuses, you can actually be a bit of a surprise to enemies going in melee and using the range to take them down. That said, I have to agree entirely with cooldown reduction being a huge priority, as well as the usefulness of Reckoning. Slowing the enemy as you blast with RF is win.

Ah kk. What to you think of my divine blessing - righteous fury skill allocation farming build? Is it viable? My wife was surprised this morning when I was playing. "I thought you had trouble farming?" I grinned and said, "allocated some skill points to RF."

EDIT: @PapaMeltin: what's a good skill points allocation sequence?
