Kennen, the Heart of the Tempest


Kennen is a mobile ability power ninja who is best used in the top lane or mid and even be an attack damage carry who has a strong early game, but falls off later.  He adds so much to team fights with his ultimate and can win lanes verses most opponents.  

Stay behind minions when farming to avoid his Thundering Shuriken.  Always buy Mercury Treads when laning kennen top lane to lower his damage and help with his passive stuns.  Having a champion like Janna or Trist who can knock Kennen away when he uses his ultimate will help your team win team fights.  

- Kennen is strong in lane because of his harass and sustain


- His ultimate Slicing Maelstrom adds so much to team fights,  it can stun multiple targets multiple times while adding a lot of damage.  


- Kennens mobility and passive stun makes him hard to gank.

- He relies on a Zhonya's Hourglass for team fights. 


- Must be careful on using energy when a team fight is about to start.
