FOTM Report: Fleet Footwork Kassadin - Insane Sustain!

Leave a Comment
This Kassadin build isn't exactly "new", but with the sudden influx of new Kassadin players ever since the Patch 8.17 buffs, every time I see an Arcane Comet rune Kassadin on my team I wonder how much happier they would be if only they knew about this incredibly overpowered Fleet Footwork build?

Introduction

This Kassadin build isn't exactly "new", but with the sudden influx of new Kassadin players ever since the Patch 8.17 buffs, every time I see an Arcane Comet rune Kassadin on my team I wonder how much happier they would be if only they knew about this incredibly overpowered Fleet Footwork build?

How to Play
Abilities: Q, W, E then prioritize R > Q > E > W
Summoner Spells: Flash + Teleport
Starting Items: Dark Seal + Refillable Potion
Core Items: Rod of Ages, Sorcerer's Shoes, Archangel's Staff, Zhonya's Hourglass, Lichbane, Rabadon's Deathcap

Rune Setup


How It Works

Incredible Lane Sustain
The biggest downfall of Kassadin is his laning phase, where he's prone to ranged harass. However, by utilizing Fleet Footwork in combination with healing secondaries, Kassadin gains an absolutely incredible amount of sustain in lane. Combined with Dark Seal, refillable potion and teleport, nobody's bullying him away from hitting level six as planned.

Improved Positioning
During team fights, Kassadin generally has an issue with maintaining a good range when he's not using his ultimate. That's where the speed boost from Fleet Footwork kicks in, giving him the ability to stay relatively safe with just enough move speed to navigate around a team fight.

Massive Healing Power
After the nerf to Presence of Mind, Kassadin players started working their way towards Triumph instead. This rune synergizes very well with the rest of his kit and allows Kassadin to run through team fights as long as he has enough mana. With both Archangel's and Rod of Ages, spoiler alert: he does.

Potential Pitfalls

Lower Damage
This build's main disadvantage is that it lacks the same amount of punishing burst as an Arcane Comet or Electrocute build. Even without these runes Kassadin's burst is already quite high though, and most players won't miss it.

Less Mana Regen
Going with the Domination secondary helps Kassadin snowball through the mid-game, but lacks the mana utility runes such as Presence of Mind and Manaflow Band. Again, Kassadin doesn't need these as long as he can farm up for RoA and Archangels, but these can be helpful if you find yourself falling behind on items and/or blue starved.

Conclusions

Kassadin in his current state is oppressive almost any way you play him. But with this Fleet Footwork build, he's absurdly strong and very deserving of God Tier.

Suggested Tier: God Tier
