Kai'sa Build Breakdown

Kai’sa has two ways to build. Each one has its own pros and cons.

Kai’sa builds AP.

With this build, Kai’Sa will deal huge single-target damage. In other words, Kai’Sa will take on the role of an assassin when building items for magic damage.

  • Duskblade of Draktharr: is a must-buy item. It gives armor penetration and empowers the first attack. It also slows the enemy. This is especially useful when Kai’Sa uses Killer Instinct to approach the target.
  • Nashor’s Tooth: gives a large amount of attack speed and extra damage. In addition, the basic attacks are empowered to deal more damage. Kai’Sa deals a lot of damage from her basic attacks. Having more attack speed will quickly activate her passive for explosive damage. You definitely have to buy this item.

If you build Kai’Sa AD with 100% critical strike

  • Bloodthirster: is a must-buy item first. Because in the early game, Kai’Sa will have to farm minions mainly. Having more lifesteal from this item allows Kai’Sa to maintain stable health to stay in lane and farm more minions. Another important stat this item provides is attack speed.
  • Solari Chargeblade: greatly increases attack speed and provides critical strike.

Kai'sa abilities

Enhancing skill 1 requires 70 physical damage.

Skill Enhancement 2 requires 80 magic damage.

Enhancing skill 3 requires 60% attack speed.

Vỏ Bọc Cộng Sinh Second Skin:

Adaptive stats allow Kai’sa to evolve when buying items with high damage. Caustic Wounds is the passive that allows Kai’sa’s basic attacks to deal extra damage.

And it will explode when reaching 5 stacks. This is the passive that increases Kai’sa’s damage tremendously. Kai’sa only has 2 skills that deal damage. Therefore, the damage from the basic attacks must be higher to balance.

Cơn Mưa Icathia Icathian Rain:

This skill deals a lot of damage for Kai’sa and it also has a very fast cooldown. It deals both physical and magic damage. The only weakness of this skill is that it splits the damage between minions and champions. So try to kill all the minions before using it, to focus all the damage on the enemy.

Tia Truy Kích Void Seeker:

I usually use this skill to harass the enemy from afar. It is also a skill to check the bushes for hidden enemies. In case of building Kai’sa heavily on magic items, the damage from the harass is very strong.

I also use this skill to burst the enemy from afar. If I hit the enemy and their remaining health is low. There is no reason for me not to combine it with the ultimate to approach and finish the enemy.

Tích Tụ Năng Lượng Supercharge:

This is a supportive skill that increases attack speed and movement speed for 4s. This means that the basic attacks will be thrown out more. You imagine after using Icathian Rain, what does Kai’sa do.

Use the basic attacks to deal more damage, right. So use this skill first. In case of evolution. This skill also makes Kai’sa invisible for a moment. Very useful if you choose the time to go invisible to go into the bushes or areas that are out of sight to avoid damage.

Bản Năng Sát Thủ Killer instinct:

Fly to where the enemy is marked. There are 2 things I have to remind you. First, this skill will absorb some damage for Kai’sa. So don’t worry too much when thinking that Kai’sa is a marksman with low durability.

Second, you can choose the position to fly around the enemy. Choose the safest area to fly into.

How to play Kai'sa

A crucial aspect of playing Kai'Sa is understanding her assassin-like playstyle. Approach your target from a distance, increase your attack speed, and burst them down.

Kai'Sa is extremely strong in 1v1 situations. She will win most matchups, which is quite different from other marksmen who typically focus on dealing damage to multiple targets.

Kai'Sa's attack pattern is very simple; just remember the 2-4-1-3 sequence. This is her perfect combo.

First, poke from a distance with VOID SEEKER to instantly gain 3 stacks of your passive. Then, dash towards your target with KILLER INSTINCT to get into the best position while also granting yourself a shield, greatly increasing your survivability.

Next, deal damage with ICATHIAN RAIN, and finally, use SUPERCHARGE to increase your attack and movement speed.

When I use SUPERCHARGE, I will reposition myself. Kai'Sa becomes briefly invisible when using SUPERCHARGE. This invisibility and repositioning help Kai'Sa avoid being targeted.

Of course, with high attack speed, I will use basic attacks to deal explosive damage. Remember that Kai'Sa's passive only needs 5 stacks to detonate, and we already have 3 stacks before even reaching the target.

Thus, just 2 basic attacks are enough to trigger the explosion.

The explosive damage here is based on the target's missing health percentage. Therefore, detonating at this point will definitely deal a significant amount of damage.

Early Game:

Kai'Sa's damage output heavily relies on items, so the primary goal is to accumulate gold to purchase items. There's no need to play aggressively. Focus on farming minions during this phase.

My minion farming strategy is simple. I deal equal damage to all minions, then use my first ability to clear multiple minions simultaneously.

Mid Game:

I'll continue farming minions and even split push during this phase. Why? Because Kai'Sa hasn't reached her power spike yet. Another important reason is that Kai'Sa can 1v1 almost any champion.

Of course, maintaining good vision control is crucial. My vision control strategy is incredibly simple: I use my second ability to check for vision. This ability has a long range and can reveal enemies, similar to Ashe's HAWKSHOT.

If I'm certain that only one enemy is approaching, I'll stay and engage in a fight. Very few players know that it takes at least two champions to take down Kai'Sa.

However, if the enemy team sends two champions to deal with Kai'Sa, the other side of the team fight will win due to the numbers advantage.

Late Game:

Use my second ability to poke low-health tanks from a distance. Regardless of whether she's played as an ADC or an assassin, Kai'Sa is squishy. Therefore, it's essential to stay in a safe position.

The key to winning teamfights is to choose your target, eliminate them, and then retreat.

Kai'sa pros and cons

The best item build for Kai'Sa in Wild Rift focuses on AP items. This build is suitable for a playstyle that focuses on dealing single-target burst damage. I hope this guide on item build and playstyle will help you master this champion.
