Who's the top Kennen player?

I'm really wondering how kennen is built by the best of the best (items, runes, masteries) -- he's one of the champs that i've had a hard time figuring out the best build for, especially with the nerfs that happened a little while back.

i dunno whether to use energy runes, or stacks defensive runes. i don't know how much magic pen helps, and whether i should shoot for it in runes and items, and if both, how much, etc...

Who's #1 Kennen?? I'd at least like to check out their runes for possible ken pages, and maybe see some recent item builds.

And I know, it's mostly skill anyway, but I'm curious what works for the highest-success ken player.

Any feedback appreciated

Ive always played kennen as a tanky mage , since ap carry kennen gets killed too easily,

oh and salce was pretty considered pretty good, so was Jiji in the WCG against team EPIC

I tend to agree with this logic, but I'm looking for specific rune/mastery/item build info on really high elo kennen players

IMO i wouldnt bother with ap runes, since his ratios are pretty meh

Mpen red
Armor/dodge yellow
mr blue

and for quints its really up to you.

For masteries i take the defensive masteries , mr,armor,dodge, health, and then standard caster offensive ,

items i usually go dorans shield, but if i have a easy lane i go dorans blade

try to finish rylais before finishing T2 boots

from there , build according to situation

His ratios aren't terrible and if you build Abyssal Sceptre and Zhonya's you shouldn't have problems with mitigation (21 in defense for extra tankiness).

I play kennen for like more than a half a year and all I can say is you need to build him tanky ap. A build for him isnt really hard to figure out(Rylai top recommended item).

My masteries are always 9/21/0, runes - red mpen, yellow hp/lvl, blue cd/lvl or mr/lvl, quints flat hp.
Forget about energy or ap runes on kennen, I tried them out, never liked them. The only char I like energy runes on is shen.
