            Abilities :

  • Passive: The Darkin Scythe

    Kayn wields an ancient weapon and fights the darkin within it, Rhaast, for control. During each game, one will consume the other. Kayn hones his shadow skills by hunting ranged opponents, while Rhaast fuels his bloodlust by going toe-to-toe with melee enemies. If Kayn wins the struggle, he ascends to become the shadow assassin. If Rhaast is the victor, the darkin consumes his host and takes center stage.
    Shadow Assassin:Deal bonus magic damage during the first few seconds of combat with champions.
    Darkin:Heal for a chunk of all spell damage dealt to champions.

  • Q: Reaping Slash

Kayn dashes forward, striking nearby enemies at the end of the dash. Both the dash and the strike itself deal physical damage. Reaping Slash deals bonus damage to monster

duration of Shadow Step will be greatly extended. Kayn won’t get the duration extension if he’s in combat with enemy champions.

  • R: Umbral Trespass

Kayn may infest any nearby enemy champion who he has recently damaged. Trespassing into a champion makes Kayn untargetable for a few seconds. Reactivating the ability during this period ends the effect early. Kayn then wrenches himself free from his victim’s body, dealing a burst of damage.

Shadow Assassin: Umbral Trespass can be cast from further away and resets the bonus magic damage from The Darkin Scythe after Kayn’s exits his victim.

Darkin: Umbral Trespass deals extra damage as a percentage of the victim’s maximum health, healing the Darkin in the process.

Gameplay and Tips :

Kayn is a slippery, insatiable nightmare who uses his victims’ bodies as a recreational vehicle. The Shadow Reaper’s ult is horrifying enough, but even scarier is his tendency to emerge, suddenly, from any wall in the Rift.

Kayn’s the only champ in League who can change his class in the middle of a game. If the other team’s squishier champs are carrying, he can focus on attacking ranged opponents to become the shadow assassin. If Kayn’s team needs a tankier frontline, Rhaast is the darkin for the job.
