Kayn dashes forward dealing damage, then slashes at the end of his dash damaging surrounding enemies. Rhaast deals bonus damage based on max health.

Quick tips to play Kayn

Use alternative ganking routes with your

E to ignore commonly warded bushes.

Flank the enemy in team fights and head straight for the backline. Focus the squishiest members first.

Gank and skirmish as much as you can in the early game to get your form change ASAP.
