Kled Strengths & Weaknesses

The all-in potential with his JoustingE and Bear Trap on a RopeQ is really strong. It also allows him to set-up ganks for his Jungler and get free kills in the lane.

Kled’s Passive is one of his greatest powers in a full-blown skirmish. He can use it to instigate tower dives and soak tower shots, while if he happens to take a lot of damage and get dismounted, he can easily get Skaarl back.

His Ultimate Chaaaaaaaarge!!!R allows him to initiate a team fight with ease. It can be used as an ability to score picks on immobile champions as well. The team movement speed increase makes sure that he generally gets sufficient follow-up.


If he gets dismounted and the enemy disengages, he will have a hard time getting Skaarl back. If Kled is against a ranged matchup, he won’t be able to even farm safely while being dismounted.

Missing his JoustingE will make it really easy for the enemy ranged carries to kite him out. If he goes in with his Violent TendenciesW on cooldown, he won’t be as effective as he should be in an all-in.

If he uses his Ultimate Chaaaaaaaarge!!!R and the enemy manages to cut his team off of him, then he won’t have any form of follow up and his team will have lost their frontline. It will cause a lot of mayhem and may cause a team fight loss.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Kled is Strong

Kled needs some time to come online. Play safe in the very early game unless you have a favourable matchup.

Once you have a few levels under your belt, you can look for aggressive plays and extended trades.

At level 6 your kill pressure increases and so does your all-in. Wait for the enemy to overextend before initiating a trade with your Ultimate Chaaaaaaaarge!!!R.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Kled is Strong

Split push in the mid-game. Drawing pressure while your team fights somewhere else on the map is a great way of opening up the map and gaining a gold lead.

Look to flank in team fights. If you can attack from the side and get on a key target, the chances of you winning a team fight will be increased.

Look for picks or look to fight the person who you’re laning against when they try to stop you from split pushing. If you’re ahead, don’t be afraid to fight but always check the map before committing to using your Ultimate Chaaaaaaaarge!!!R.

Late game
25+ min
Kled is Average

Flank in team fights and try to take down the squishiest member of the enemy team. Taking someone down quickly will give you a huge advantage.

While the enemy is moving into position and preparing to group, someone may be isolated or alone (or they may be too far forward). Pull the trigger and use your Ultimate Chaaaaaaaarge!!!R to collapse on them.

Look to group with your team in the late game. Grouping is important as you will not be able to impact team fights if you’re away from them- even with your Ultimate Chaaaaaaaarge!!!R as it takes some time to get into position.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

Kled is really good early on as he can use his Bear Trap on a RopeQ and JoustingE to all-in and destroy his enemy in trades. His Violent TendenciesW plays a pivotal role in it as well.

Once Kled hits level 6, he will gain access to his Ultimate Chaaaaaaaarge!!!R, which will allow him to all-in laners in different lanes. He can even pay a surprise visit to the bot lane.

The first item component will increase Kled's dueling potential. It will make him more powerful than he already is, which is terrible news for the enemy.

Mid game15 - 25 min

Once he gets two points in his Ultimate Chaaaaaaaarge!!!R, Kled can focus on running enemies down and completely destroying them with his team. He can even score singular picks with it.

At level 9, his first ability will be maxed out. This will give him a massive damage boost, and he will kill people in an instant. It will be quite the power spike for him.

Kled will have multiple items in the mid-game, which will make him a devastating force to deal with. This is really helpful for his team, and Kled will quickly act as the frontline for his team.

Late game25+ min

Kled's Passive is heavily underrated, but that will make all the difference in the game now. He can use it to soak up so much damage without the risk of dying, and he can quickly remount if Skaarl flees.

Kled will have his build almost completed by now. This means that he will be tanky, as well as dish out heavy amounts of damage. Anyone who gets caught out by him will probably end up dying.

Since all his abilities will be maxed at this point, Kled will be huge in the game. His ability to disrupt the enemy teams' ranks will be phenomenal, and he can easily peel for his carries as well.
