Kennen is a better adc than most if not all the standard ones

Kennen does have pretty nice attack speed scaling. :)

What Kennen brings to the table of ADC is the ability to stun. Not other ADC has that barring a semi stun from Tristana ulting them into a wall and a conditional one with Vayne condemning one person into a wall.

And he fields his ult into a teamfight as well and that can be extremely useful. I would say it's a tradeoff. He loses a normal ADC steroid like AS buff or AD buff or range buff in exchange for being able to stun.

That said, I still prefer AP Kennen.


Ashe.


Also his stun is extremely unsafe and throws him into the fray, a place you do not want to be as an ADC. This literally removes any argument you could have about him being safe once you also try to place the argument that he can stun. If you want to be able to stun with any reliable frequency you have to use either your e or your r.

Pretty bad tradeoff.

using your ult with it is fine, in a teamfight just ult, auto attack and press W to stun people. It's self peeling really.

If played as an ADC, Kennen is among the safest because of all his self peeling tools. Hard to dive someone that can repeatedly stun you. You're not going to get game changing flash ult Zhonya's off as AD Kennen, but that's not why AD Kennen is picked.

I think he's going to be fotm very soon, with the amount of bruisers that can dive an adc, having stuns and an escape is such a useful tool. Also because of health stacking adc's don't do near as much damage as they used to so staying alive is far more important. You guys will see, you'll all see!

ad kennen WAS good since he had stupid amount of base ad

riot nerfed that, simply not worth doing ad on kennen if you can such a massive impact on teamfights playing ( what he was made for ) ap.

Ult against the bruisers who are diving you, instead of diving the enemy team.

How's that "throwing him into the fray"?

Insane kiting and self-peeling. I love AD Kennen.
#20davidaaronkPosted 2/25/2013 1:08:50 PM
The issue with AD kennen is he can't auto while in ult or ball, so you lose a lot of your damage when you're peeling or running away.
