Why roll Tank-Ennen you say? Because its fun and the other team will most likely go "WTF!" as most Kennen players roll AD/AS/AP. Kennen can be quite a effective Tank/Stun-locker. His skills don't just lie in standing in the back waiting for the other team to run at him with his small Hp Pool, Kennen is very flexible.


Warning This ^^^^ only works if your team is not full of 13 year olds.


Kennen, The Heart of the Tempest

(IF YOU WANT TO READ THE @@@@@@@ STORY GO TO GAME DATABASE, I'M TO LAZY TO COPY AND PASTE THIS @@@@)

Last of Items you should have at the End.
1.Mercury Treads
2.Force of Nature
3.Rylai's Crystal Scepter
Last 3 Items is Purely Up To You.
My Suggestions
4.Warmog's Armor
5.Sunfire Cape
6.Sunfire Cape

Game plan - Basically your job as a Shock-trooper is to run in and start the fight, stun as many hoes as you can while your team runs in be hide you all 300 style and **** to rape the faces of the other teams champs. I uselly throw a [Q] first, then [E] if [R] is ready pop that @@@@ then for fun I [W] rinse and repeat!

The main reason i made this guide is because right as i bought Kennen i remembered he isn't a tank nor was he Ezreal and was like "O **** DAWG, I ONLY PLAY TANKZ OR EZ RAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG" so i decided to try out a tank-like Kennen that focused kind of on stacking hp and ms so i can kamikaze on other players faces, I spent 6.3k FRAKKIN IP ON THIS CHAMP (RIOT U @@@@) AND I MIGHT AS WELL ENJOY IT.

P.S - MOTHER^^^^^^^ MAGNETS, HOW DO THEY WORK?


Please feel free to post any feedback or advice, i always want to improve on Kennen +,+

Your Guide is really hard to read, if you want to improve the guide itself i suggest adopting a style at least.
when you're saying your item build orders saying how much each one cost and when you'll be able to get them helps a new person whose never played it like me and tell me WHY i should choose this build over some random one i create or pick recommended items.

Note: make your things specific the second i looked at your skill build i skipped it.

If you're going mid, W is a better starting skill than Q (i haven't side laned with Kennen, but I imagine it would work good there as well)

Other than the style, it was a decent hp guide for kennen. No playstyle tips in it though.

Personally, I start with HP Crystal -> Leviathan (AMAZING b/c of all the assists, with 20 stacks you should survive anything but 5 man focus)
then boots -> mercury treads/ninja tabi (based on other team) or BoS if their team is terrible

Then Haunting guise= hp + ap + mpen is win

followed by Rylai's, so your abilities always slow and sometimes stun (and more good hp)

This is the core build that I usually finish games with.

Then either frozen mallet (more hp + more slow) or Guardian angel (so the stunning goodness never ends)

And finally a rageblade (b/c this item was made for kennen, and gives you some good dps when games just won't end).

If I finish the build and have a frozen mallet, I have over 4k hp ( I have HP/level seals and quints). However, I don't play him as a tank. DO NOT USE THIS TO TANK. This build ensures survival while you run in and stun the other team and keeps you from dying instantly to their carry if your tank is bad.

Remember, with HP kennen, you don't want the kills, you want the assists.
Just offering my Kenny build.
