Kindred's Runes

Kindred, currently can choose one of two main runes “Lethal Tempo” and “Conqueror”.

If you want to play Kindred with attack speed, continuous attack. Increase the range to support kiting, then choose the rune “Lethal Tempo”.

Kindred has skill “Dance of Arrows” that can fire 3 arrows at the same time, which means if you choose the rune “Conqueror” you will quickly accumulate enough stacks for it. It helps increase damage and lifesteal.

Personally, I use “Conqueror” the most. In combat, the total amount of extra damage is really effective.

Kindred position

Kindred is best suited for the jungle role, as it gives them the freedom to hunt for their “Marks of the Kindred” and stack up their passive.

However, Kindred can also play as a marksman in the solo lane. Kindred needs to snowball very hard to succeed in the solo lane.

Kindred deals a lot of physical damage in the late game.

A core item for Kindred is “Trinity Force”, which is essential for physical damage champions. It boosts health, attack speed, ability haste and attack damage. It also grants extra movement speed to improve kiting.

Another core item for Kindred is “Black Cleaver”. This item is very popular among physical damage champions. It enhances damage, health and shreds the armor of the enemy.

Two synergistic items with “Black Cleaver” are “Youmuu’s Ghostblade” and “Runaan’s Hurricane”.

Kindred's abilities

Dance of Arrows Dance of Arrows

Dance of Arrows is Kindred’s main damaging ability. It can be used to jump over thin walls, approach enemies or even dodge attacks.

After using Dance of Arrows, Kindred’s speed will increase. You have to use it together with the ability “Wolf’s Frenzy” to reduce the cooldown of Dance of Arrows. This is how Kindred can move and kite continuously and deal damage quickly.

Wolf's Frenzy Wolf's Frenzy

Enhances Kindred's combat prowess both on lanes and in the jungle, providing healing for Kindred. However, the drawback is that Wolf is unable to deal damage to targets situated at a considerable distance, placing Kindred at a disadvantage when confronting long-range champions.

Mounting Dread Mounting Dread

This skill is employed for ganking purposes as it can slow down the target, dealing damage based on the target's maximum health. Additionally, it boosts critical strike chance if the enemy has low health.

Lamb's Respite Lamb's Respite

Defend your primary force or teammates from destruction. It serves as the most effective counter against assassin champions who unleash explosive damage.

How to play Kindred

To increase your attack speed, damage, and healing, you have to master the skill of kiting continuously when playing Kindred. You have to move constantly, whether attacking jungle monsters or champions.

Kindred will be extremely scary when facing melee champions who do not have mobility skills, if you master the skill of kiting.

“Dance of Arrows” and “Wolf’s Frenzy” allow Kindred to jump around and attack enemies continuously.

Your main objectives in the early game are farming and collecting “Marks of the Kindred”. The more you collect, the better.

In the mid game, look for isolated targets and catch them off guard. Kindred is very good at 1v1 duels.

Combo Kindred:

Dance of Arrows +Wolf's Frenzy + Mounting Dread + Lamb's Respite
