Wild Rift Guide: How to Play Kha’Zix

In today’s article, we are going to show you Kha’Zix and how to play him In League of Legends: Wild Rift. Kha’Zix is an AD assassin with high burst and mobility. He is a very strong solo queue champion.

Like every other champion, Kha’Zix has his own playstyle, strengths, and weaknesses. We’ll cover everything and more so stick around!

Kha’zix, The Voidreaver

The Void grows, and the Void adapts—in none of its myriad spawn are these truths more apparent than Kha’Zix. Evolution drives the core of this mutating horror, born to survive and to slay the strong. Where it struggles to do so, it grows new, more effective ways to counter and kill its prey. Initially, a mindless beast, Kha’Zix’s intelligence has developed as much as its form. Now, the creature plans out its hunts, and even utilizes the visceral terror it engenders in its victims.

Kha’Zix’s Abilities

  • Passive, Unseen Threat: Nearby enemies isolated from allies will be marked. Kha’Zix’s skills interact with isolated targets. When Kha’Zix is invisible to the enemy team, he gains a stealth threat, causing him to deal extra magic damage to the enemy hero’s next normal attack and slowing it for a few seconds.

  • Ability (1), Taste The Fear: Inflict physical damage to the target. Increased damage to isolated targets.
    • If he chooses to evolve the Grim Reaper’s Claw, this will return the percentage of his cooldown on the isolated target. Kha’Zix’s ordinary attacks and tasting their fear also increased the range.

  • Ability (2), Void Spike: Kha’Zix fires explosive spikes, inflicting physical damage on enemies hit. If Kha’Zix is within the explosion range, he will be cured.
    • If he chooses to evolve the spike stand, the Void Spike will now launch three spikes in a cone, slowing down the enemy hit, and showing the enemy hero hit for 2 seconds. Isolated targets will be additionally slowed down.

  • Ability (3), Leap: Kha’Zix jumps into an area and caused physical damage when he lands.
    • If he chooses to evolve the wings, Leap’s range will increase by 200, and the cooldown will be reset when the hero kills or assists.

  • Ultimate, Last Caress:Kha’Zix can evolve one of his skills with each rank, giving it a unique bonus effect. Kha’Zix becomes Invisible when engaged, triggering Unseen Threat and boosting Movement Speed.
    • Void Assault gains increased Invisibility duration and an additional use if he chooses to Evolve Adaptive Cloaking.

How to Play Kha’Zix


Before the game even starts it is very important to choose the right runes, so the champion can accelerate as much as possible and unleash her full potential. 

Keystone: For Kha’Zix, you choose Electrocute as your keystone since it’s giving you a lot of bursts and allows you to proc it with one combo and almost one-shot an enemy. 

Electrocute Wild Rift

Slot 1, (Domination): For this, you go Brutal to have this AD and Armor penetration during your first clear to get as soon as possible level 5. Furthermore, this rune helps a lot if you have early game skirmishes.

Brutal Wild RIft

Slot 2, (Resolve): For this one, you will choose Hunter-Titan since you will need the Tenacity to escape every form of CC.

Hunters-Titan Wild Rift

Slot 3, (Inspiration): The Hunter-Genius Rune gives Ability Haste and Ability Haste for every unique champion takedown. It will allow you to have a small cooldown on your abilities, so you can assassinate more often.

These are the runes that you should use. If some other runes suit you better you can try them out and leave a comment down below.

Skill Order

  • You always max your Ability (1) first since it’s the main ability that provides damage in your kit and also the main ability while clearing your jungle.

  • The second one you max is Ability (2) which is your second source of damage in the jungle and during fights, in addition, it is a good healing source.

  • The last one you max is Ability (3) this one is the ability that provides you a lot of mobility.


The main combo will always be Ability (3) while you are in the air press Ability (1) and Ability(2) and then autoattack. At the early stages of the game, you preferably want to find isolated targets that have no escape and jump on them to assassinate them. Later in the game, you can go in kill someone, and escape with the jump reset. Here a video with all the possible combos you can pull off with Kha’Zix:

Another combo is to just press your Ultimate and then Ability(3)  and Ability(1) in the air if you see someone with low Health. In addition, you can do that but also use Ability(2) if this isn’t enough to kill the target.

Early game

Jungle clear: First of you want to start at your red side because this side is the easiest to cleat with your Ability(1), since it’s isolated. You will start with red, the next camp will be your Krugs.

From there you will go your Raptors and proceed to your blue side jungle, look for a gank in the Midlane or even invade if the enemy jungler is weak. 

Once you are on your blue side you will clear your Wolves,  proceed to your blue Buff, and then go and take the Scuttle crab.

If you do this clear, you will be level 5 faster than anyone else on the map.

Early game ganking: After you clear your jungle you will look for a gank or try to invade the enemy jungler since you will have evolved your Ability(1), you will either go for a gank mid, Dragon or Baron lane depends on if the map is reversed. Take a look at which lane is pushed in, this lane will be the easiest to gank. The best case scenario will be to get their summoners and kill out of the gank. After a successful gank look for solo skirmishes since you are very strong at that point.

Early drake fights: Before the drake spawns try to get level 7. You can easily do it solo since your Ability(1) does tons of damage to isolated targets. Try to find a bush you camp in and wait till someone on the enemy team walks by and execute him fast. If you see someone that is mispositioned kill them, preferably the enemy jungler. Then that’s the moment you want to start doing the drake with your teammates. 

Kha'zix Dragon Wild Rift

Rift Herald: Before you move to the Rift Herald you should gank their Baron laner, then move with him together to the Rift Herald and take it together.

Mid game

In the midgame, you want to get level 9 and gank as often as possible and abuse your Ability(3) resets as much as possible. You will be able to get a lot of free ganks since the leap is huge and you can reach almost anyone.

The best lane to gank if you want to scale to a win is the Duo lane and your Mid lane. At the dragon fights in the midgame, you will have to try to assassinate the enemy jungler to get a dragon as easily as possible.

Late game

Once the late game hits and you have enough items you will be an absolute death threat for the enemy team. You will have to punish everyone who is mispositioned or is overextended. Try to abuse your Ability(3) to get resets and assassinate one enemy after the other.

Baron fight: Let your team engage and flank from the backside to assassinate as many carries as possible. If you do this you will probably win the whole fight get the Baron and end or almost end the game.


You always start with a Long Sword. On your first back, you will always build a Serrated Dirk, preferably a Caulfield’s Warhammer. Your first full item will be the Duskblade of Draktharr since its synergizing is very good with your Passive and your ultimate. For your second item, you want to buy is a Youmuu’s Ghostblade for even higher DPS movement speed and armor penetration.  The third item is going to be either a Black Cleaver or a Mortal Reminder. You want to go with Black Cleaver if you want to be tankier.

The next item is going to be Mortal Reminder or Black Cleaver depends on what you bought before. Last but not least you are going to build a Guardians Angel because it gives you some solid Attack damage, armor, and the revive.on, For the boots you can make your own choice depending on the situation of the game. You have to be flexible about what you are going to upgrade your boots to. 

Kha’Zix’s counters


Rammus (WIld Rift Splash Art)

One of the greatest counters of Kha’Zix is Rammus. If you play against a Rammus try to avoid him since he can disrupt your jump and CC lock you very fast. You will have to be careful when and where you are jumping in. Since Rammus scales and does more damage the more armor he has you should never try to fight him since he is a direct counter to AD assasins.


Gragas (WIld Rift Splash Art)

Gragas is an AP tank that can cause you a lot of trouble with his CC. He can also disrupt your jump mid air and make you vulnerable. He can CC lock your really fast and make you an easy target got the enemy team. You should never jump into a Gragas and try to avoid him for most of the time.

How to play against other junglers


Shyvana (WIld Rift Splash Art)

If you see the enemy picking a Shyvana you are probably going to end up stomping her if you follow my instructions. You want to get level 3 and invade her on her Blue since she is very weak before she can get level 5. You will be able to kill her most of the time since you have high amount of burst. As soon you get level 5 you want to keep invading her and disrupting her clear. If she isn’t level 5 it will be always a free kill.


Wukong (WIld Rift Splash Art)

The same thing you do to Shyvana you are going to do to a Wukong, but you will have to be careful with his clone. 


Evelynn (WIld Rift Splash Art)

Never back up from an enemy Evelynn if she hasn’t hit her level 5. Try to double crab her or even invade her since you are much stronger in that stage. Once you get level 5 try to anticipate where she is going to walk and camp in a bush nearby to burst her down once she walks past the bush.


Kha’Zix is a pretty easy champion if you want to solo carry a game in your solo queue. If you abuse all his kit correctly you will see the true power of Kha’Zix and how strong and slipery he can be.
