How good is Kassadin?

#1HeartlessCharmsPosted 4/6/2013 11:25:47 PM
He's on sale this week and he looks like a cool champ. I've never seen anybody use him nor used him myself.
What does he play like? Top,mid, or bot? ADC, APC, Jungle?

Mid AP Assassin.

He's really good against most traditional mid picks i.e. squishy ap carries.

If there's anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.

He's a jungler that is weak early but scales very well especially once he has his ultimate. Also with his passive he hard counters anyone that does magic damage like Ryze and Swain.

Most Kassadin's feed the enemy AP mid who has much stronger mid game presence then him, resulting in a 19-30 minute loss. Sometimes the team will carry said Kassadin to level 16+ and get him some items, at that point he becomes an extremely good janitor and kiter which usually results in viktory.

Or they are just a good Kassadin actually dodge the Anivias skillshots at mid and retaliate with Q's while maintaing a strong farm. This is very rare and I cannot pull it of against good players.

Or they end up aganst a Talon or Pantheon resulting in being 6 levels lower then their enemy and having achieves 15 less ganks. Then the team gets mad and reports them.

He is a really annoying and relatively easy to play AP mid, very strong roaming after 6 and he is pretty safe thanks to Rift Walk.

Like every other mid AP assassin, he has the potential to snowball completely outta control.

Kass differentiates himself by being a complete wet noodle before he gets farm (rather than just before hitting 6 like Akali or Diana or someone like Fizz who can farm champs starting as early as 3) but also probably tied with being the most annoying assassin when fed as he'll not only oneshot your carries he'll also be able to just void walk out whenever (Diana and Akali have to go balls deep).

In the low tiers I'm in, I've absolutely never seen him do anything impressive.
It probably takes genuine skill to make him worthwhile.

Hes very hard to play, but also very strong.

the only bad thing about him which you wont like is that he is melee plus super squishy. but he does have a good escape with his ult. Also has troubles with mana. But other than that he can burst down any squishy in a second
