How to play Kennen?

I tried out the little guy and I was absolutely terrible. Ended the game 0/6/3 with a teamscore of 6-22. Other team's Kennen got fed and there was nothing I could do against him as any mirror match would result in my dying. I have no idea where to position in a teamfight or what to buy with this champion or even how to farm/level his skills.

Any suggestions?

Why hello there .

A couple easy tips to help, especially early game. Harass heavily. Force them away from minions with your skillshot. That's what helped me maintain a level gap on you. I also fully support a controller type build.

-Haunting Guise
-Boot(your choice really, i went for mobility)
-Rylai's
-Leviathon
-Enter x tank item here.

With a build like this, you can offer much more to a team. You are much less susceptible to dying and with as strong of an early game as he can have, you can dominate late game.
Use e to enter the fight, hence tank items and mobility boots, follow by w and your ultimate. This allows you to have a huge controlling factor in a teamfight, where you are constantly throwing out stuns(slows too with rylai's) and have the durability needed to survive the initial contact. Ghost really, really helps. It allows you to enter and exit as quickly as you need, coupled with his 'e', you can really turn the tides of a teamfight.

note-Having shen and kennen on a team is extremely useful. Kennen run through and shen ult. in. Not only will this ensure kennen's survival most times, but it will also allow you to setup for a constant stun cycle with kennen using his skills and shen's taunt, this can prove to be the winner of teamfights more times than not.

Is this the order you buy the items? Wouldn't it be better to get Leviathon sooner rather than later?

Didn't Riot make it so you don't want to have Kennen and Shen on the same team? They hinted at it by saying that ninjas work alone and I assume that becuase they gave Shen a buff saying hes a flipping ninja that there would be negative side effects to having both Shen and Kennen in a team.

Didn't hear anything posted on the TR forums about any of this while Kennen was being tested out. Might apply to three ninjas, but as far as I know, no.

I'm going to try something similar to this when I get off work. The idea being to maximize his attack speed and magic damage from razor's/W passive/base spell damage. He seems like dps support, but not a hard carry by himself.

Ken and Shen should rape since they share those marks
