Still K.E.N.?

#1CheeseItBagginsPosted 2/7/2013 1:23:52 AM
So guys, I followed Ego Ignaxio's guide in S2 (Doran's Shield start, full on Utility tree, etc). Kennen was all the rage and such. I haven't been keeping up with all the Champion changes, but I NEVER see Kennen anymore.

Did anything change to make him a subpar pick now? Or is he still the way he was before, and just being forgotten in favor of a series of FOTM champs?

Also, if you do still play him, what sort of build do you use? Is full on Utility still viable on him?

He received a couple minor nerfs and then everyone overreacted and got off the bandwagon. Happens a lot.

Good. He's such a fun character to play. What about my other questions?

He's just been buffed and his winrate has gone from 49% to 53%

I guess Utility is no longer strong on him? I see nothing in the ways of Energy Regen there, and I dunno how Spellvamp/WOTA is nowadays.

Energy runes/conservation is markedly less important on Kennen now that his ult costs none.

Now playing: League Of Legends (FireAwayX), Guild Wars 2 (Floralei/Crownbird), World of Warcraft (shut up), SFxT (Poison/Nina, Juri/Lili)

I did not know about this change. Good, I guess he's still pretty OP, and equally fun to play. AoE violence and stuns? Yes plx.

His AA range took a hit, and none of the pros played him. Hope this change to his ult can change things, though I don't get why one would go full utility?
