Laning Against Kayn

Laning Against Kayn

Kayn will try and fight as much as he can in the early game so he can get his form quickly. Keep this in mind and be prepared to fight back.

Because of Kayn’s Ultimate Umbral TrespassR and mobility, make sure you watch yourself as you recall, and make sure you stand in the middle of the lane so it’s easy for you to escape if he springs up nearby. Don’t give him easy kills by window shopping when you recall.

Opt for early sustain. Kayn has a lot of sustain in lane thanks to the items he buys and his Shadow StepE. Having sustain that matches him will make the laning phase much easier.

Strategy VS Kayn

Strategy VS Kayn

Kayn will try to assassinate targets that are alone during the mid-game. Avoid walking through the river alone if you’re unsure of Kayn’s location.

Kayn can tower dive while sieging thanks to his Shadow StepE. Make sure you have your flanks warded so you can spot him before he jumps onto you or your team.

Shadow Assassin will look to nuke your backline by flanking or going through walls. Try to peel your backline or set up vision so that you know where he is at all times.

Kayn Power Spikes

Kayn Power Spikes

When Kayn gets his transformation, he will be much stronger. If he goes Red Kayn, he will be tankier, if he goes Blue Kayn, he will deal tons of damage.

At level 6, Kayn can be more aggressive and go for riskier plays as he can use his Ultimate Umbral TrespassR to protect him from dying. Keep this in mind when fighting him.

Kayn will be looking to skirmish as much as he can in the early game so he can get his form early.
