Kayn Jungle Tips and Tricks

  • Kayn is very weak without a transformation and the number of junglers he can confidently duel at Scuttler during the early game is very small. To get a transformation, Kayn has to damage an enemy champion to obtain Darkin Scythe passive stacks. Damaging melee champions grants him the Rhaast (red) Kayn transformation stacks. On the other hand, doing damage to ranged champions grants him the Shadow Assassin (blue) Kayn transformation stacks.
  • It is important to pre-plan your jungle route so that you can path towards the lane with enemy champions that you need to damage for the transformation of your choice.
  • Reaping Slash can be used to jump over quite a few walls and when it is combined with Shadow Step, their proper use makes Kayn a high mobility champion with a lot of easy ways to control team fights and steal jungle objectives.
  • Umbral Trespass is Kayn's most valuable spell. With proper timing it can be used to quickly dodge enemy skill shots, and it is worth noting that it is possible to cast Smite while you're inside an enemy— allowing for easy Baron & Dragon steals.

Pro Kayn Jungle Path —full clear with a leashless Raptor start

  • The Pro Kayn Jungle Path has a full clear that starts on the Raptors with Kayn leveling Reaping Slash and it doesn't require a leash from the bot lane due to the huge amount of AoE damage this skill provides. After killing the Raptors and reaching level two, high elo Kayn players tend to level up the Shadow Step skill which allows Kayn to travel through walls. By using Shadow Step, Kayn can travel through the Red Buff wall all the way to the Krugs to clear them quickly. After Krugs, next up is the Red Buff camp that grants Kayn level three which allows him to unlock Blade's Reach. At this point Kayn moves towards the Blue Buff side of the jungle and clears the Wolves, Blue Buff and Gromp. Scuttler is the last camp in this jungle path and Kayn can gank a lane with the best kill potential after its death so that he gets a lot of transformation points.
  • This Kayn Jungle Clear prioritizes full clearing for most optimal scaling. On top of that, Kayn is able to fight for Scuttler on the river side with the highest lane priority and easy ways to run away.

Beginner Kayn Jungle Path —full clear with a Red Buff start

  • The Beginner Kayn Jungle Path is a full jg clear that starts on the Red Buff with Kayn leveling Reaping Slash. After killing the Red Buff and reaching level two, you'll want to level up Blade's Reach and head over to the Krugs camp & clear them. The Raptor camp is next and killing them grants Kayn level three which unlocks Shadow Step. At this point you can use the recently unlocked Shadow Step to quickly move through walls to reach the Blue Buff side of the jungle and clear the Wolves, Blue Buff and Gromp. Scuttler is the last camp in this jungle path and Kayn can gank a lane after its death so that he gets free transformation points.
  • This Kayn Jungle Clear is a route which requires a leash from the allied team. Getting a leash means that the clear is a bit faster, allowing you to be relatively on time for the Scuttler spawn. If the Scuttler is contested, even better as you are able to fight for Scuttler on the river side with the highest lane priority and easy ways to run away.

Fast gank Jungle Kayn Path —transformation rush

  • The Fast gank Kayn Jungle Path tries to obtain gold and experience from a full clear but with a really early gank incorporated in it. This allows Kayn to get a substantial amount of transformation points, provided the gank goes good. This route starts on the Raptors with Kayn leveling Reaping Slash and it doesn't require a leash. After killing the Raptors and reaching level two, you'll want to level up the Blade's Reach and head over to the Red Buff camp to clear it. The Krugs camp is next and killing them grants Kayn level three, allowing you to unlock Shadow Step. You can now quickly path into a gank by utilizing Shadow Step. After the gank, recall back, buy boots and rush towards the Blue Buff side of the jungle. Clear the Wolves, Blue Sentinel and Gromp. Scuttler is the last camp in this jungle path and Kayn can gank a lane after its death so that he gets even more transformation points.
  • This Kayn Jungle Clear prioritizes getting an insanely fast transformation in order to snowball through the game. If the enemy jungler doesn't invade you, nor does he path towards the same Scuttler, you  can still manage to get a full Jungle clear.
