Get your Kennen Freelo (2.0a)

Kennen is insanely broken (as of 2.0a) and is almost certainly getting nerfed in a few days so enjoy your freelo whilst it lasts.

Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

EARLY GAME

We always start with Amplifying TomeAmplifying Tome as this builds into any of our first items ( Liandry's TormentLiandry's Torment or Infinity OrbInfinity Orb )

You could consider starting with a Long SwordLong Sword if you're into a melee match up and you want to poke using your basic attacks but this doesn't build into anything relevent unless you want to go for a Hextech GunbladeHextech Gunblade .


MID GAME (FIRST DRAGON ONWARDS)

I like to complete Liandry's TormentLiandry's Torment or Infinity OrbInfinity Orb if I can before first dragon spawns. I take Liandry's if we are going to poke before fighting and I take Infinity if they have a lot of low HP champions on their team (no tanks).

I will sometimes prioritise MorellonomiconMorellonomicon first if I am facing a Dr. MundoDr. Mundo , OlafOlaf or DravenDraven who bought BloodthirsterBloodthirster as his first item. Essentially anyone with lots of lifesteal or HP regeneration.

I will usually aim for a [stasis enchant] as my second item after I have completed my first damage item. This enchant is absolutely crucial for KennenKennen in teamfights.


HOW TO WIN WITH KENNEN

If you're mid lane this is much easier, if you're baron lane then you need to be more mindful of the map.

Here is one simple rule:

KennenKennen is ABSOLUTELY BROKEN in first dragon team fights. His damage and team wide utility is almost unmatched. I will rotate for first dragon almost EVERY game I am playing Kennen. It is imperative you use Kennen to give your team the edge at neutral objective teamfights.

Your big choice will be between Electrocute and Conquerer.

Electrocute is good for 1v1 lane matchups, or good vs. ranged champions that you won't get to use basic attacks much vs.

Conquerer is better into melee matchups and better in team fights in general.

Brutal for early lane pressure, regeneration because it always regens our health and Sweet Tooth because it's free gold and extra regen.
