How it works

  1. You support your Team providing Healing, Shielding and various Buffs.
  2. You rush Moonstone Renewer.
  3. You can peel from your carries with Exhaust.

How to play

  1. You need to adapt in the game to your team and to the enemy team.
  2. Your team needs to engage? Get items like Shurelya's Battlesong or Trailblazer.
  3. Your team getting poked to death? Consider getting Redemption AND/OR Locket of the Iron Solari
  4. If you are just getting poked and cannot manage to stay alive - get Kaenic Rookern or Warmog's Armor (caution: needs enough HP!)
  5. You have tanks, bruisers and your team lack damage? As a last resort, you can buy few items to even help with that!
  6. Remember to counter an enemy team. For example, if they have lots of healing, get Executioner's Calling early.
  7. Kayle's kit offers lots of utility. You can heal and speed with W, triggering Summon Aery with it to shield your allies, you can shred Armor/MR of enemy tanks (your Q). And of course, you can make someone invincible.
  8. Generally play safe, from behind. Use heals for wounded, you can cast W to speed someone up - to run away or to engage. And you can make someone invincible for a moment (carry, tanks etc).
  9. This is a general support build, that is well-rounded for everything mentioned above.
  10. Max W, go a lot of CDR because it has long cooldown at early levels.
  11. Even as Support, your E is a semi execute ability that scales off missing health of enemy target, meaning you can still do some serious damage
  12. Auto attack if possible and safe! You have lots of On-Hit effects that work and do damage even with this build.
  13. If you want to have this build Ultimate oriented - go Domination + Ultimate Hunter and Rush Axiom Arc first!

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. Do not wait for 'special moment' to use Divine Judgement (Kayle's Ultimate) on someone. Someone is still high HP, but getting focused? Use it!
Riot
  1. Using Divine Judgment on a high-DPS ally can turn the tides of battle by giving your ally free reign to attack.
  2. Kayle's attacks become incredibly powerful once she gains attack range from Divine Ascent. Play safe until then.
  3. Kayle benefits greatly from Attack Damage and Ability Power, making hybrid items like Nashor's Tooth and Hextech Gunblade very effective on her.
