Kayle Matchups Overview

Kayle General information

Kayle tips and tricks

Kayle is a weak early game champion until she gets her Ultimate Divine JudgmentR as it provides her with range and increased survivability. Play safe until you’ve unlocked your Ultimate Divine JudgmentR.

Whenever your Ultimate Divine JudgmentR is on cooldown, you should play a little safer as you’re rather squishy and can easily die if you’re caught without your Ultimate Divine JudgmentR to protect you.

In the early game, keep the wave closer to your side of the map to increase your survivability and reduce the enemies ability to set you behind.
