If Kayn enters combat with a champion,
E
's duration is cut to 1.5 seconds. Auto attacking or being hard-CC'd will immediately end it.
Power Spike
Spikes very hard upon acquiring a new form.
W
's 90% slow is great for ganking before acquiring a new form.
Rhaast wins his team extended fights with repeated
W
knock ups and health-shredding
Q
's.
Shadow Assassin plays an aggressive poking playstyle by moving into walls with
E
and bursting the backline with
W
+
P
.
Enchantment: Warrior
's Chilling Smite can be used to enter a target with
R
for safety in a pinch.
Rhaast spikes hard at
Black Cleaver

Spirit Visage
, and Shadow Assassin spikes hard at any two of
Umbral Glaive
/
Youmuu's Ghostblade
