Kassadin Matchups Overview
Kassadin General information
Focus on staying healthy, farming well and making low risk plays during the early laning phase. Try and avoid putting yourself in a position where the enemy can exploit your weakness and set you behind.
Be as selfish as you can up until level 16. Once you’re level 16, you are going to be much stronger and should look to use your power spike to finish off the game.
Post 6, when looking to trade, make sure the enemy has a key ability on cooldown before using your Ultimate R aggressively. If you go in when all their abilities are up, they will have a lot of damage and be able to trade back with you.
