Wazzup dear readers, Gilgamesch here. With this guide i wanna make one short announcement. As some might have guessed it i am indeed new to solomid.net so i have little idea with the buildups and functions for scripts. Forgive me if my texts look boring. So kassadin....wait....this champ still exists? Seems like it. Being the major defitinion of "Impossible to balance" kassadin is highly unstable in his playrate and fit for the metas. Either he is bullcrap or he is the unbeaten Go-in and Go-out Tag god. Many people do not anticipate his results and for once i will leave the fun comments out for this forgotten champion. Here is a guide on how to play the man who used to have 99% banrate.

Kassadins earlygame is a major struggle. the balance between manawaste and manaregen from your W is nothing easy to accomplish. Kassadins passive is good against some AP champs however 15% damage reduction is rather meh. Earlygame this will suck because the damage reduction is percentual therefore it scales with the enemies strength. Kassadin is VERY vurnerable for extended fights since he has nothing to support his sustain. Do not go in for an all out if a skill rotation cannot win you the fight. Your cooldowns are RATHER low but your early damage is just as low compared to what other assasins have to offer.

Midgame with kassadin is very, very dependant on how far you got ahead in the earlygame phase. Like all other assassins you are depending on your feed BUT as kassadin you have a chaotic effectiveness. Either you can do shits of damage and burst your target down or your skills will be nothing but a literal poke. You are rather weak in your teampresence, with E as your only reliant AoE damage source since your ult is a dive so you will commit suicide just for a lil help, which without saying is bad. So you are going to have to wait out until the enemies squishies are rather low health and them shove it to them. You have no damage amplify and no extraordinary mods or any onhit-triggers like akali or katarina do. So unlike other assassins you rely solely on your natural damage.

Lategame you can hold your head a bit back since You now will most likely have a full itembuild. The weakness i mentioned for the midgame phase remember? For the lategame it doesnt apply as much but it is present neverthless. Teamfights could be rather complex thoe because you have again the struggle with showing your effectiveness. E is your only AoE skill so you cant poke as reliant if you really can poke at all, and even then you have to mind that even thoe the cone spread is huge, the maximum range of your E is rather short. A lot of champs outrange you. You are likely to fall out (typical assassin stuff bla bla bla) but you can likely manage to be successful.

As kassadin you do show a certain presence but you are very meta dependant. Any tanks will give you hords of struggle and you have heavy issues regarding being useful. The metashifts are EXTREMELY harmful to your playstyle, resulting you in either being op asf or the top tier trashpick. You need to be careful and have knowledge in the damage you are able to dish out. With kassadin, moreso than with other assassins comes champion awareness into the role, you need to know who you are good against and who not
