Kassadin

The Void Walker

Kassadin INFO

  • Kassadin was released on 07 August 2009 and can be purchased from the Riot Store for 3150 IP or 790 RP.
  • Kassadin is somewhat similar to the Helghast from the Killzone series.
  • He is also similar to the Emperor Zurg from the Disney's Toy Story franchise and Buzz Lightyear of Star Command Series.
  • Kassadin has a heavy and unorthodox breathing pattern, which resembles Darth Vader from Star Wars.
  • Kassadin was unplayable in U.R.F. mode, probably due to the fact that with the already low cooldown on his ultimate (Riftwalk) he could traverse the map at insane speeds.

Kassadin Skins

Kassadin Pros

  • Highly Mobile Versatile Assassin.
  • Fairly Strong laning phase (forces opponent to start flask).
  • Great Map Pressure Post 6.
  • Scales Phenomenally among the assassins.

Kassadin Cons

  • Low Base damages.
  • Ult is very mana intensive with stacks.
  • Can be countered by AD mids.

Kassadin Counter Tips

  • Kassadin gets completely countered by AD damage early game due to him being melee and having a passive only strong against AP.
  • Try to disable (stun/snare/knock-up) him if he uses his Riftwalk aggressively.
  • Buying a Banshee's Veil will significantly lower the damage you take from his skill combos.
  • Watch out for Kassadin's new tanky build, he's not really weak to AD mids anymore. Be ready to get an early last whisper if he gets iceborn gauntlet.

KASSADIN STORY

There is a place between dimensions and between worlds. To some it is known as the Outside, to others it is the Unknown. To most, however, it is called the Void. Despite its name, the Void is not an empty place, but rather the home of unspeakable things, horrors not meant for minds of men. Though such knowledge is lost in modern times, there are those who have unwittingly discovered what lies beyond, and they have been unable to turn away. Kassadin is such a creature. He was once a man forced to look upon the face of the Void and forever changed by what he saw. Once a seeker of forbidden knowledge, he discovered that what he sought was something else entirely. He is one of the few that has found his way to forgotten Icathia and lived to tell the tale, following the scant breadcrumbs hidden in ancient texts.

Within a decaying cyclopean city, Kassadin found secrets of the kind that he will never share – secrets that made him quake with fear at the visions of things to come that were thrust upon him. The power of the place threatened to consume him forever, but Kassadin took the only route available to him in order to survive – he let the Void inside him. Miraculously, he was able to overcome the alien urges that went with it, and he emerged as something more than human. Though a part of him died that day, he knows that he must protect Valoran from the things scratching at the door, waiting to get in and visit their torments upon the world. They are only one step away… something to which the appearance of the abomination known as Cho’Gath attests.

If you look upon the Void, you can’t put it behind you. If you look upon Kassadin, he is probably already there.
