So I am looking to get one of these two assassin classes, they just seem cool in my opinion but still undecided if I should buy Nocturne or save up enough points for Kha'zix.

for those who have played both, can you give me a feed back on what you think what are the pros and cons of each one and which Champ you find most useful to you or your team.

Nocturne is stronger overall. He has his fear ability, which Kha doesnt, and much better mobility from his Q and ultimate. I'm assuming you're both playing them from jungle, in which case Nocturne's ult also helps him to gank without them being able to see him and apply pressure to all the lanes because they're not sure who he's jumping on.

Nocturne is more of a bruiser nowadays than an assassin because he doesn't have the best burst compared to say Talon or Kha'Zix.

Nocturne Pros:
-Decent jungle clear and pre-6 ganks
-Awesome ultimate
-Good sustained DPS
-Strong CC from his E

Nocturne Cons:
-No instant gap closer
-Squishy without items
-Low burst damage
-Mana hungry

Kha'Zix Pros:
-Insane single target burst
-Strong poke with evolved W
-Strong escape with evolved E
-Strong chasing

Kha'Zix Cons:
-Can be mana hungry
-Very squishy
-Easily focused in teamfights
-Relies on enemies being out of position to do his job
-No CC

If you're looking for an assassin you should go with Khazix. Both are really strong... Noct is better in jungle, Khazix is better top/mid, so it depends what role you're looking to play really. But as Persona said, Noct is a better bruiser than assassin.

Im looking for a guy that just jumps in there, damages the **** out of them, closes distance from a fleeing target and then run away from any danger.

basically jump in, kill, run away.

Pretty much nailed it on the head, I'd also like to add that Nocturne is good at chasing as well, and he does have a gap closer, it's just on a 3 minute CD.

Nocturne. Some reason kha'zix is getting banned more in rank lately, at least in my average elo right now.
