Best Kha’Zix build guide for Season 3 Patch 2.4a In Wild Rift. With our Kha’Zix guide you will learn which items to build, runes to select, skill order, and how to use Kha’Zix abilities properly.
Kha’Zix is the consequence of the Void’s growth. Born a weak creature, Kha’Zix struggled from the beginning of his existence but he feasted on increasingly larger and more dangerous prey. Whenever he struggled to do so, he somehow understood what made them so strong and he evolved new, more effective ways to kill them. This guide will fast-track you to everything you need to know about the Evolving Voidreaver, Kha’Zix before you stalk the Wild Rift. The author, Siege, would like to thank r/Kha’ZixMains and Tinjus for teaching him how to play Kha’Zix in League PC.
Slashes with his claws, dealing 65 physical damage (65 + 130% bonus AD). If the target is isolated , the damage is increased by 110%.
Fires spikes that deal 80 physical damage (80 + 100% bonus AD). Heals himself for 55 + 50% AP) if he is within the explosion.
Evolve-Adaptive Cloaking: Invisibility duration is increased to 2 seconds and can be cast up to three times.
Innate Passive: Unseen Threat
Kha’Zix’s passive enhances his next attack against enemy champions and slows them. Unseen Threat activates when Kha’Zix is not seen by the enemy team and it lasts until it is used even after being seen.
Unseen Threat is signified by the glow in his claws. After using his passive, it will only glow again by being unseen. This can be done mid-fight by hiding under brushes or by using Kha’Zix ‘s ultimate, Void Assault.
If you hid under brushes and your claws did not glow, it means that the enemy has vision of that brush and most probably, a ward is planted there.
Make full use of Kha’Zix ‘s passive by always auto-attacking in between your combos and every time you have used a charge of your ultimate, Void Assault. If you are fighting close to a brush, you can try to hide under brushes every time you have completed one basic combo cycle, W + Q + AA. The slow from Unseen Threat will make it possible to pull off without the enemy getting too far away.
Q | Ability 1: Taste Their Fear
Taste Their Fear is Kha’Zix’s main source of damage. Isolated enemies are dealt 110% more damage and if Taste Their Fear is Evolved, 45% of this ability’s cooldown is refunded. An enemy is Isolated if the enemy has no allied champion or minion nearby. A target has an Isolation ring that signifies that it is Isolated and it shows the range where their ally can disable the Isolated status.
Due to the bonus damage on Isolated targets, Kha’Zix can easily kill any enemy champion if they are alone. But, it is also his weakness because his one-shot potential is entirely reliant on the enemy being Isolated.
Taste Their Fear cancels the backswing animation of Kha’Zix’s auto attack and W, Void Spike so it is best to use it after either of those. It is somehow like an auto-attack reset.
Taste Their Fear can be used while using E, Leap. If you have Evolved both Taste Their Fear and E, Leap, it will be possible to assassinate enemies from a relatively long-range.
Taste Their Fear’s Evolve is called Evolve-Reaper Claws. This Evolve increases Kha’Zix’s auto-attack and Taste Their Fear’s range by 50 units. This change makes it easier to pull off his combos. The more significant change is that when Taste Their Fear is used on Isolated targets, 45% of its cooldown is refunded.
Champions who can out clear Kha’Zix are rare after acquiring Evolve-Reaper Claws, thanks to the 45% cooldown reduction from its use on Isolated targets. Due to this fact and because Evolve-Reaper Claws is great for early Isolated duels), even take drakes and other objectives sneakily, alone, Evolve-Reaper Claws is one of the most popular first Evolve. It is also the safest choice when playing solo.
W | Ability 2: Void Spike
Void Spike is Kha’Zix’s only skill shot. It deals damage around the area it explodes and if Kha’zix is in the range of the explosion, he is healed.
Void Spike’s healing is important for keeping Kha’Zix healthy in the early game. It also helps on clearing the Raptors, Wolves, and Krugs. When clearing camps with multiple monsters, walk towards the camp first so that all of them will be hit by Void Spike’s explosion.
In duels and ganks, Void Spike should be cast first before either casting E, Leap on long-range ganks or before Q, Taste Their Fear when an enemy is near, either when an enemy is face checking or by using Kha’Zix’s ultimate, Void Assault to get near them. Void Spike is cast first because its animation backswing can be canceled by Kha’Zix’s other abilities.
Void Spike’s Evolve is called Evolve-Spike Racks. It adds two additional spikes that fly at a diagonal angle at both sides of Void Spike’s main target direction. Enemies hit by the Evolved spikes are slowed by 60%.
Void Spike is Evolved first when playing lane Kha’Zix or at level 11 or 16 when played in the jungle. The additional spikes are great for wave clearing and the slow is great in team fights for picking off enemies or peeling for allies.
Void Spike can be buffered or cast faster using Flash. If you are planning to Flash in for a kill, cast Void Spike first for the surprising damage and if it is evolved, the kill will be ensured because of the slow.
If you watch to check the brushes for enemies, use Void Spike because you will see it explode if it hits an enemy you cannot see.
E | Ability 3: Leap
Leap, as its name suggest, makes Kha’Zix leap and deal damage to the area where he lands. It deals a considerable amount of damage and its range is enormous when Evolved. It also has a cooldown reset on takedowns when evolved.
When killing jungle camps, use leap to get from one camp to the next faster. Target the middle of the camp so you can kill the small monsters faster together with Kha’Zix’s W, Void Spike.
Leap’s combo W + E + Q + AA is best used against squishy opponents who can be one-shotted. If you are unsure if the enemy has flash or has a mobility tool, or when fighting a tankier opponent, it is better to walk up to your prey with your ultimate, Void Assault then use Leap when the enemy attempts to flash away from you.
If you cannot avoid an enemy’s crowd control, use Leap to tank the crowd control. You will still be stunned or rooted but you will still fly during the duration so you’ll still have the chance to either chase or escape.
Evolve-Wings Evolve as mention increases Leap’s range and allows it to be reset on takedowns. This Evolution is great on team fights and snowballing. If you bagged a double or triple kill, you may opt to Evolve leap first to snowball the rest of the game.
R | Ultimate: Void Assault
Void Assault allows Kha’Zix to turn invisible for 1.25 seconds (2 seconds when Evolved) twice (thrice when Evolved) within 10 seconds. While invisible, Kha’Zix gains bonus movement speed and his passive, Unseen Threat is refreshed.
Void Assault offers Kha’Zix lots of utility that he can use in different ways. Some examples of Void Assault usage:
- To get close to an enemy champion you want to gank.
- To juke enemies and avoid skillshots with the invisibility and bonus movement speed. Move to a different direction after turning invisible so that the enemy will have a harder time determining where you will show up.
- To reset his passive, Unseen Threat for more damage in duels. A full-duration Evolved Void Assault also resets the passive of Duskblade of Draktharr. Plus, it will give you enough time to reset the cooldown of your other abilities.
Void Assault also grants the passive ability to Evolve Kha’Zix abilities. Kha’Zix can Evolve a total of three abilities in levels 5, 9, and 13. If a Nemesis Duel activates and Kha’Zix wins, he will have the chance to Evolve all his abilities.
Kha’Zix has different Evolution orders depending on the champions drafted, game state, and individual play style. Here are some examples of Evolution orders.
Apex Predator – Standard Evolution
This is the safest Evolution order for Kha’Zix. Evolving Q, Taste Their Fear is important, especially in solo queue because you’ll mostly be doing things by yourself. You’ll be dueling the enemy jungler solo, securing scuttlers solo, and even take drakes and Rift Herald solo. Q, Taste Their Fear enables you to do just that. Q, Taste Their Fear is also a safe first Evolve because it makes your clear speed twice as fast, so you’ll have a good amount of gold if gank opportunities are rare.
E, Leap is Evolved next because it takes advantage of frequent team fights in the mid-game and so, you’ll be able to take advantage of resets. Kha’Zix also has usually enough damage by then to one-shot most squishies.
Whether to Evolve W, Void Spikes, or your ultimate, Void Assault is up to your preference. If your team is cooperative, Evolving W, Void Spikes might be a better choice but Void Assault will provide you more solo carry potential.
Smurfing Mantis – Snowball Evolution
As the name implies, this Evolution order for Kha’Zix is mainly for smurfs because evolving E, Leap is only useful when you managed to bag two or three kills before the first drake. Smurfs have superior game sense in relation to other players in the bracket they are playing so they can abuse out positioned targets easily and get kills and resets easily. This Evolution order is risky because if you don’t manage to snowball through kills, you won’t be able to farm as fast compared to Evolving Q, Taste Their Fear first.
Organized Chaos – Team Fight Evolution
This Evolution order is favored in higher elo because of Void Assault’s high outplay potential. The increased invisibility duration is enough to approach backline champions in a gank and on team fights, especially on the drake fights. In 5 stacks and even on solo queue in Emerald+, players will more likely to group up to take objectives and Kha’Zix can feel hard to play in this situations when he Evolves Q, Taste Their Fear first so Evolving Void Assault first can be a remedy to that.
Evolving W, Void Spike is best when playing Kha’Zix in the baron lane or even in the mid lane. The extra spikes enable Kha’Zix to wave clear fast and the slow is extremely useful in fights either for picking off enemies and for peeling for teammates.
Kha’Zix can use land all his damage in less than a second. This is what it looks like when you pulled it off.
Standard combo: W + E + Q + AA
Facecheck combo: W + Q + AA
Full combo: W + E + Q + AA + R + Q + AA + R + W + Q + AA + (STILL ALIVE?!) + R + Q + AA
If you are going to execute your combo in a crowded fight (bad idea unless your team has lots of AoE crowd control), make use of the portrait lock function to ensure that your abilities will hit one single target. Remember to make full use of Void Assault’s invisibility duration and that you can use Q, Taste Their Fear while using E, Leap.
