    W
    applies one more
    Kai'Sa

    W
    is upgraded.

    R
    with her high damage. Also doubles as an escape tool.

  • Kai'Sa
    E
    prevents her from auto attacking during its cast, which can be harmful before evolving it.
  • Once
    Kai'Sa
    R
    is used, Kai'Sa has no way out of a fight.
