Tips Against Kled in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
I Am Goliath says “Surviving the early game is crucial in this matchup, first item ninja tabi helps a lot, don't try to kill kled early as you'll just get baited by his remount unless you have your E-W up with passives up as well, but that is pretty rare if you just dismounted him unless he is eating auto attacks, once you get level 6 is when you start to have kill pressure in this matchup, because you can actually kill him with your ultimate quite easily if you dismount him, keep in mind you can ultimate him while he is on mount and the ultimate will stay on him through the dismount. Overall just be cautious early game and don't eat his Q's and you'll outscale him hard, once you get 9+ this matchup is easy.”
Ayanleh says “Kled is a hard matchup as his early game is much stronger than yours but you outscale him so play safe till you get some items and armor. You can maybe do something at lv6 with blasting wand and ult as you can steal his stats.”
Sovereign Kitten says “You need to avoid his hook and keep moving away from him if he does hit it, which is pretty standard advice. (Q) him if you ever get pulled in to prevent the first 3 swift (AA) from his (W) and try to get out of his reach with one of your Shrooms placed down as he dashes towards you. You can not body block the grapple with minions, so be careful of his (Q) and (E) > (Q) cheese. If you hear him (R) you can go into stealth. He won't be able to target you, because his ability is not a target skill but a visible range skill. Excellent if you want to assassinate his ADC when their entire team rushes ahead of you for you to flank.
YoungTact says “Easy matchup but be cautious for his remount! Apply general lane combo and walk out of his Q if you get hooked. Apply general lane combo when you can and your W works on his E and dismounted Q so use your good judgement. Ping him when he's missing. ”
Pathetic Singed says “Kled will bully you so much, but considering you're playing Singed you're probably used to that. Fling him when he E's or to get his Q out of range. Your W cancels his E. His Q since 9.14 counters your R with the healing reduction.”
Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP HEAVILY IN YOUR FAVOUR. DODGE HIS QS. DONT EAT HIS W AUTO ATTACKS. BE CAREFUL WHEN LOW HP. CANCEL HIS SECOND E WITH YOUR PULL. LAND YOUR OWN QS. CONQUEROR RECOMMENDED.
This is not that difficult of a matchup. Even with ignite and PTA, Kled cannot beat a good Darius in lane. Kled is essentially a much weaker Renekton. Try to dodge his Qs. If he lands them onto you, then try to either walk out of its range or make sure you land a Q before it pulls you in as the anti heal on his Q is really stupid. You have to make sure to kite him around with ghost so that he does not get every single one of his W autos off on you. In all honesty, even if you miss half your abilities, you should still be able to beat him in an all him. Just don’t take stupid short trades, as Kled has much more health to work with than you. Don’t get into an AA match with a dismounted Kled, as if he gets his remount off you are most likely dead. Tabis are good against him but the lane is easy so you can just go damage. If Kled DOES get ahead of you though, it will be a nightmare because a Kled can solo win a game thanks to his ultimate. Just ping your team like crazy when he goes missing. You do outscale Kled eventually so don’t worry if you lose early. Just sit tight and look for opportunities. Conqueror is a MUST into this lane as you need the extra damage to cleave through all of his HP.”
PH45 says “Dodge his W's procs with E and you should do good. Avoid getting hit by his Q and you should win all ins against him. Careful however since he gets courage quickly when hes attacking a champion so back off if you are low hp since he get's quite a lot of hp back just by attacking you a couple of times.”
lol Wero says “An All In champ but a winnable lane. Rush Ninja Tabi and poke him out to dismount him (His Passive). Once he's dismounted, avoid his Pocket Pistol (Q) so he cannot get mounted back to Skaarl.”
Kartagoo says “Get tabi early! He has a lot of Burst and can outplay you hard when he dismounts and mounts again. Dodge his Q and watch his W (4 Auto attack passive). Don't trade with him when has it up! Always watch your HP and Kled alone or with the Jungler can easily dive you cuz he loses Turret aggro when he dismounts. When you get him to Dismount either kill before he has half a bar to mount again or just dont all in him at all. Ask for ganks. Keep in mind that he can roam with level 6 so alert your teammates when he's gone. ”
Drake6401 says “He has the advantage until level 3. Your combat style doesn't change much here. Keep trades short and try to trade him when his W is down. That's where most of his damage comes from. Kled will usually play safe once dismounted to get minion kills or poke you. If he opens himself to a trade and won't get Skarel soon, try and finish him off.”
Olaf Only says “Only go for trades if his W is on CD.
His Q has healing reduction which counters Olaf extremely hard.
Olaf wins after Black Cleaver.
He can also dive you whenever he wants: https://clips.twitch.tv/InterestingStupidCrabChefFrank”
qasddsa says “Kled is annoying because of the way towers target him after he is dismounted from Skaarl and his strong sticking power with Q and E. This makes him a hard matchup because he can easily bait out your ult with his spell rotation and disengage at the same time. Recommended item to rush is DD + PD with Q max; look to play safely with Q poke and wait until 11 to better deal with him. If he engages, you will need to use your ultimate to negate his immediate damage and kite back.”
Wawza says “His Q applies Grievious Wounds so your healing wont be as effective in this matchup, try to make him waste his Q and then engage, harder to win this matchup but not impossible by any means.”
The Real Fake says “Used to be relatively easy matchup, but after the buff to Kled Q you cannot beat him. His 60% healing reduction completely shuts down one of your strongest attibutes, in combat healing/drain. Only time you can attempt to trade is if he misses his Q.”
Raen says “If you get him down from his mount, he is free for you. Your E blocks his W completely. You need to look at his courage since he will get large amount of hp from mount so fight and dive him wisely !”
Persicum777 says “Now kled is a interesting beast. Always keep in mind that he has 2 health bars so 1 good engage is not enough you'll need atleast 2, and many burst trades is how your going to ultimately will win this lane so pta is important here, Also I wouldnt ult for a kill on him because the delay between his forms is too long and you need to bait his shotguns out when he has lost his mount, if you have a strong jungler who will gank for you this lane will become easy quickly, but if he gets a few kills on you early be prepared to play it safe for 10 mintues. So in general if your losing alot against him dont be afraid to take comet+ w max to learn this lane a few times, dodging his hook and learning to bait his abilities, and abilities cd management is key here.”
ak521 says “He can disengage is the problem. He has great dueling and roaming, look for trades (while keeping in mind to not give him his lizard back) when his W is down (the 4 empowered autos). Go Teleport. Doran's Blade, Ninja Tabi, BORK.”
Anoying bro5 says “Another fun matchup for Fiora. lvl 2 you win, parry the second part of his Q to stun him. He needs to get in melee range so watch out for his jump to try to make you miss the riposte. You basically auto win this lane if you understand how to play around him and Skaarl. You can also parry his ult.”
iZeal says “This matchup can really go either way. If you manage to dodge his Q he will be lacking the damage to kill you, but early game you have to be afraid of his burst. Exploit that he has to use his W or his Q to cs and hold your Q when he has his E up as he can dodge not only once, but twice when he hits it. Timing your Q properly when he dismounts is a guaranteed hit, but be careful whether he hit you with a Q that pulls you back. Don't waste abilities when he is about to dismount so you can kill him as fast as possible. Kled has huge problems late game to get onto a suitable target and his ultimate as well as his Q can be bodyblocked, so take care of him when you can.
DBlade/DShield, Ninja Tabis!, Phage”
PH45 says “Kled is naturally a strong laner, while Sylas really isn't. Keep your distance and try to poke him out so he dismounts. When his W has run out you have a window for all-in but be cautious about his remount mechanic since if he is allowed to remount you'll most likely lose the fight. Let your team know when he is missing since he will roam pretty quickly thanks to his ult.”
Justkb says “This is a purely skill-based matchup! If you can fight him within your wave you should win sustained trades. Make sure that you can avoid his Q as the heal reduction limits your sustain. You beat him until he hits level 11. Try not to trade with him if he has his W up as this increases his burst significantly. Once he dismounts try to get close and time your E with his Q. Kill him as fast as possible once he has dismounted. ”
iZeal says “Dodge his Qs or suffer 60% healing reduction. He has the ability to beat you throughout the game, but his teamfighting is weaker if you CC him. If he demounts you have to have 2 Qs left to deal enough damage to kill him or he will just remount during that time and kill you instead. ”
Rhoku says “Kled is a MASSIVE threat as his early game is SIGNIFICANTLY better than yours. Not to mention how if he gets a kill, he will be able to snowball EXTREMELY hard. Do not die to him pre-6. Just wait out the lane. Rush Ninja Tabi, as this item counters him hard. Level 6, you will be able to beat him because Kled has a TON of HP, leading to you getting a decent chunk of stats from him with your ultimate. Ping like crazy when he is missing because a good Kled can take over the game and carry with his ultimate. Be sure to land your Qs properly. Don't let him E through you over and over again and outplay your Qs. If you miss anything you are dead. This lane is NOT forgiving. I wouldn't even step up to Q range pre 6 as this lets him hit his Q onto you which will lead into a full trade where you either die or just get GIGA chunked out.”
LoLReal says “Kled feels like a skill match up. His trades are pretty efficient if he hits Q with the grievous wounds buff. Trading early can be difficult. Dodge Q and we win trades. Get tabis and we win at 6.”
LoLReal says “I'd say slightly Kled favored now with the grievous wounds buff he received (thanks, Riot) but ultimately a skill match up still. We can out trade him.
Make sure to dismount Kled prior to ulting or our ult is effectively wasted. We have to hit Q in this match up or we won't win. Careful for him dodging it by going into you.”
Ravenborne says “Be sure to get your Q off before the Beartrap triggers so you get the Heal in. If he starts W'ing you E him to cancel the Damage Output. You're both even when it comes to Damage so go for smart trades you know you can win.”
ChaseMorePlz says “You're not a champion versus Kled. Sit back, relax and breathe and remember the goal is to survive lane phase and not fall behind in CS. Take all of the cs available to you that you can get safely. ”
Phrxshn says “Dodge his Bear Trap on a Rope(Q) and you make out-trades with Kled. Avoid fighting him while he has Violent Tendencies as it buffs his attack speed and damage and the buff last 4 seconds. Prepare yourself to juke out his Charge!(R). (Recommended Items: Ninja's Tabi) (Outscaling Edge: Warwick) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Infinite Duress prevents his charge from being cast, but does not stop it) (Jaws of the Beast follow Jousting) ”
ERNESTSAURUS says “SPELLBOOK / FLEET FOOTWORK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT =
Kled is a really oppresive Top laner but he gets outscaled easily by Nasus late game. For laning phase you must play it as safe as you can, if he gets a kill on you, it's really hard to come back, for this you can also look to put 3 points in your E to farm more safely. Remember that if he hits you with Q, when you get pulled back, he has a 60% healing reduction making it super hard to outank him, also he has really good diving potential since when he dismounts, he goes untargateable and loses tower agro, so if you see a Kled toplane with, for example, an Elise, Rek'Sai, Zac, Rammus jungle, you must have vision and if they come top to dive you, don't defend the tower just back off. Kled later on to the game once you are full build, you beat him, he simply doesn't have enough damage to match Nasus Q's but before that you must ping everytime he is not in lane, if you play passive enough to the point he can't kill you, he will look to roam to other lanes to get kills. This matchup is hard not for the laning phase, but for the diving potential kled has so if you are low enough to the point he can burst you with his full combo, back off and don't let him get a lead on you.”
chrisorion says “Transcendence + Gathering Storm and start Doran's Blade. Level 1 you want to Q poke and dodge his Q using your vital's movement speed. Level 2 is where you have kill pressure on him. If you parry his Q you have a good window to trade with him. Don't use parry for his Q all of the time, it's better to Q out so that he'll be forced to use E if he wants to get the Q damage. Play around his W that allows him to win most short trades. Don't fight him if his courage meter is close to being full. Level 6 you hard win with ultimate. Ping if he's missing level 6 as he can use his ult to roam to other lanes. You can go Blade of the Ruined King.”
Phrxshn says “Dodge his Bear Trap on a Rope(Q) and you make out-trades with Kled. Avoid fighting him while he has Violent Tendencies as it buffs his attack speed and damage and the buff last 4 seconds. Prepare yourself to juke out his Charge!(R). (Recommended Items: Ninja's Tabi) (Outscaling Edge: Malphite) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even)”
Shumair says “This is really just a straightforward, boring lane matchup. Kled is an early/mid game oriented champ so he'll wnat to snowball and get as much done as possibel early on. His insane level 2/3 duelling potential allows him to snowball by catching his opponent off guard. Simply put, you just want to avoid all ins in the early levels. Try to always keep the wave pushing towards you becasue if you get halfway down the lane there's no chance of escaping if you don't dodge his Q. At level 6 you'll have a better chance as your ult is better 1v1. Don't ult him whilst he's ulting or your ultimate won't work and will be put on CD.”
Fan22 says “Kled it´s like a darius but maybe, and just maybe even worse.
He has 2 dashes with his E making maokai with his lack of movement an easy snack, and don´t forget his passive and his damague.
I think one of the more important things of kled is his Q, which deals good damague, but it also has Grievious wounds which reduces your healings, making maokais passive usseles in a fight.
Go tp and try to farm all you can and help your teamamtes with a tp if you see the opportunity, i reccomend buying tabis in this matchup.”
Seth346 says “There's very little you can do in this matchup other than dodge qs and don't let his e connect to you. Other than that if you made the mistake of picking Kassadin into Kled you can only pray. ”
NickCola Tesla says “Even matchup in his favor early, but you outscale him fast!
The biggest tip I can give you in this lane is to respect the burst he's capable of dishing out. Kled can be SO deceptive at times in terms of bring able to turn an unfavorable situation into a favorable one. Between the massive AS steriod attributed to his W, and his mounting/remounting capabilities, he's capable of huge outplay potential.
In lane, be weary of his level two all in! Don't be afraid to give up lane priority, if it means saving your health for performing successful trades later in the lane. Kled will have no trouble bursting you down at this point, but remember that you outscale him after you purchase Ninja Tabis and components to Frozen Heart!”
Bombabo says “As long as you don't let him cheese you early, you shouldn't have much of a problem beating Kled.. You outdamage him, and your ult prevents him from being able to fight long enough to get skaarl back. Just remember that your ult won't kill him if he is still mounted”
I Am Goliath says “Very hard matchup because you can pretty much never kill this little guy, however you can also survive this match up, I reccomend Q poking as much as you can in this lane so he can never all in you, if you can get him to jump off skarl then you can all in him but be very careful do not get baited since he gets that thing back quickly, again early ninja tabi's will help you a TON in this matchup since all he really does it auto attack.”
wallobear53 says “Kled’s Q needs to be avoided at all times as it is a skill shot and does a lot of damage (along with soft CC) if he manages to land it on you. If you have any mobility spells, use it after he Q’s you to have a chance at breaking his Q tether.
Kled’s E is his main mobility tool and he will use his Q in combination with it to all-in you. Use the minion wave to block his Q so that you can escape easily. If you have some displacement ability on you, you can try to use it on Kled after his E animation ends.
Be careful about staying too low under your tower as Kled can easily tower dive you due to how his Passive (Skaarl) works. Back off as quickly as you can and get a reset, or else you’ll just end up getting doved by Kled and his Jungler.
ForgottenProject says “He got Buffed and Riot since to give him a Free Executioner's on his Hook.
The Pulling Part of his Hook applies 60% Griveous Wounds but it's extremely easy to parry.
Beware of his Remount, Burst him down when he Dismounts. Keep your eyes on the Remount Bar.
I Am Goliath says “Very easy matchup you should be able to get a kill or two in lane or be able to pressure him hard, since he starts out with so much HP your W does so much to him and he doesn't really do a ton of damage unless he gets all of his autos off which is hard for him to do against gnar, just poke the crap out of him basically.”
XtheZ115 says “I personally hate Kled. He's annoying more than anything else, and luckily you are a Singed, which probably annoys him, too! Skaarl will ruin your trades, so try to stick to proxy farming.”
I Am Goliath says “Kled doesn't have very good sustain so I think you can win this matchup most of the time although it is annoying because of how much hp he has, if you can poke him down and get him off skarl then you should be able to all in him and kill him pretty easily. Once you get ninja tabi's he shouldn't really be able to kill you unless he gets a gank so make sure you're warding up. Once he gets super bulky you probably won't be able to kill him but that's just how Kled is, he can E away from your Q's and also Q away from them when he is off skarl. and his Q will interupt your Q but only after it procs so just activate your Q before it pulls you in and you will be fine. Both of your ults are pretty similar although I think his is a little better since it gives a speed boost to his allies as well, You might want to consider getting a thornmail in this match up since he is pretty much all auto attacks.”
Olaugh says “It's always hard vs Kled. Try to poke him as much as possible and you can put 2 points into E. Go all in when he hasnt Scarl-his dog and if he has high fury dont go all in except if u are 100%sure you can burst him”
SkellyBirb says “His only threat is his bear trap on a rope and ultimate. You can poke him and charm him to get off damage. If Skaarl is gone, he can't get it back easily since you can get a lot of damage off during the charm.”
AWierdShoe says “Contest the push level 1. The whole early laning phase you wanna try to bait out his Q (mounted) and dodge it. If you do you’ll have a window where you can freely win trades with your empowered Q’s. If you get hit, you just walk backwards to deny the second activation and it’s not too bad. You’ll win short trades with your Q’s and W’s while saving your taunt for disengage if he dashes at you. But NEVER go for an all-in vs him unless you’ve already dismounted him twice or he’s low enough that you’re 100% sure you can kill him before he remounts.
M.P.C says “He's basically your polar opposite. You scale with AP - He scales with AD. Your early game is Passive/Agressive - His is Agressive/Passive. This match up is just about who's more skilled with their champ.”
Fiora Pogjet says “The matchup against Kled shouldn't be that hard. His Q is easy to prarry and if his W is not up on cooldown you can always go for trades. If the player isn't that good you have a free lane. But if they play good its hard to kill them because of the passive.”
LeSocair says “Dodge the lasso! Take care of his 6, don't push too much after killing him or making him back, you'll get caught by surprise.
Try to run away when he jumps on you and go back in with kegs and/or Q afterwards.
Keep away when his Violent Tendencies is up.”
ModxLoL says “There are a few things to watch out for in this matchup: 1) Watch out for her E stun; it will allow her to jump to you an extra time for free. 2) When she uses her W, similar to when Garen uses W, you should not pour your entire combo on to her as it gives her massive damage reduction. Keep auto attacking her while she has it active – you can’t interrupt it with your CC. Once it’s over you can use the rest of your abilities on her. ”
Stiwy says “Strong early game, take PTA and rush ninja tabis. After level 6 you can start to fight him but the ideal level is 9, when your W is permanent.
When you can dismount him from Skaarl you ult can delete him (keep in mind that he can knock himself back with his dismounted Q)
He has more map presence than you thanks to his ult but overall you scale well and you can be more useful in fights.”
KingNklaus says “Right now Kled is overpowered the grevious wounds on Q destroys conqueror + Kled is always a strong early game so is almost impossible to win this match up if he wastes W on minions you have a chance ”
gsaeyx says “What build you go doesn't matter you lose anyways. Q him and force him to e either to you or away, then e into q him as soon as it's up. When he dismounts get out of melee range otherwise he can go sicko mode on you and get skarrl back in a matter of seconds.”
Fourpaws33 says “He will try to bully you early with his w and q. Avoid the bear trap and don't take trades when he has his w up. Keep track of his passive when he's off otherwise you could lose an easy fight.”
EntxRecoil says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Kled can be difficult in the early game if he lands too many q's on you to poke you down. Look to dodge his q's while you build up fury level one and if you dodge enough you can look for trades level 1 and level 2 assuming that you get level 2 first. IMPORTANT NOTE: When Kled dismounts, he gains courage for every auto attack on a champion, he gains courage for every last hit he gets, and he gets courage for hitting his dismounted q against you. So if you are looking to all in Kled MAKE SURE that you dismount him WITHOUT having to use ignite or your spin that way you can kill him immediately after the dismount. If you dismount him without having the ability to kill him immediately that is a mistake. Kled gets a lot of hp back when he remounts after he gets to 100 courage, so if you dismount him and cant kill him off his mount you basically just gave him at 300-400 hp potion. A strategy I employ if I can against kled is that I will look for short trades against kled and leave his mount at about 5-10% hp that way I can dismount him easily whenever I want and all in him right after. One thing to mention about kled's w is that he cannot control when he uses it EXCEPT for the first time he levels it up. Most good kled's will not level up their w (the 4 really fast auto attacks) until they are dismounted for the first time so that they can try to cheese a kill with the remount. So again make sure that if a kled is employing that strategy that you have enough damage to burst him so he cant remount during the allin. After kled has leveled up their W what they will do against Tryndamere is they will use their q and tiamat to farm so they can keep their w up and available to dash on you for an all in trade. If Kled ever uses his W on a minion, you have a 14 second cooldown on his level 1 w to look for a solid trade. In the mid-late game you outscale Kled really hard and can even 100-0 him under his turret once you are 4-5 items.”
BloodyDream81 says “Match up à l'avantage de Darius mais il faut tout de même rester vigilant, Le Z de Kled est une sort passif qui s'active au bout d'un certain temps, et qui boost ses 4 prochaines attaques, mais il ne choisit pas quand l'activé, c'est automatique, il faut donc que tu repère le moment où il l'utilise sur les sbires pour initié le combat à ce moment là, et si suite à ça tu esquive son A qui est une chaine appliquant de l'anti heal, tu es sur et certaine le battre !
Astuce : Les bottes tabi ninja et le phage te donne un gros potentiel de kill sur Kled”
Kingarthur720 says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Kled can be difficult in the early game if he lands too many q's on you to poke you down.

In the mid-late game you outscale Kled really hard and can even 100-0 him under his turret once you are 4-5 items.”
Dantheman81 says “Kled can be difficult, he can also be very easy as well. Kled players are very aggressive and are always trying to fight. Wait for him to use his dash before you trap him and be careful about his skaarl bar. He can outplay you very easily if you do not pay attention. Try to grab a bramble vest or Ninja Tabi as early as you can.”
Alan234 says “Any rune is fine. I sort of like PTA
Be careful of his all ins and gank setup with e. Use your Q when he is on you with his W. When kled is in his small form you need to be careful because your burst is not very strong and he could turn around a fight. In general you just poke him and dodge his q's and youre fine. Call your jungler for counterganks because his dive is very good due to tower aggro resets
Xplor says “Kled is that type of character which can make you trouble if you play with Yorick against him. I don't say that you cannot win the lane but be extremely careful as he not only can outdamage you but he will have a lot of health and can go all-in from afar (past-6)
Play safe, don't get near him at all so he cannot "E" you, and if he makes you trouble, farm under the tower until mid-game.”
Lintaar says “Kled isnt really a problem till level 6. If he ults you with no team around, run into his ult and q him when he runs past you, then do a loop back around to your side. If he wastes his ult and gives you some passive stacks at the same time you can probably kill him”
Darrkescru says “O problema do kled e que ele geralmente vai ir top de Ignite + Barreira ou Tp, use impeto , Sempre desvie do Q dele (uma das maiores fontes do dano) se tu tomar o skillshot proca o impeto e sai correndo, quando ele te der all in com o dash apenas da cegueira nele traz ele para um cogumelo e assim caita ele facilemente, rusha tabi ninja e respeita o early deste boneco pois vai te dar um dano que você não vai estar esperando”
Alzeidx says “All in him when you have full rage and he had made a mistake. Burst him to demount and all in after he is demounted. you should be able to outrade him early if you play it properly and manage your rage well. go Conqueror”
SpyDaFX says “skill matchup. the safe way that works against him is to not die before 6 and look for roams, and rush Tiamat and tabbies into Spear of Shojin, then you will win all trades against him, Dont trade when his W is up (when he gets alot of attack speed, he will sh*t on you). you need to get ahead of him to consistently win trades. go Conqueror.”
WayOfTheTempesst says “Have heard a lot of people have trouble with this matchup but i think its slightly Yasuo favored 60/40. Poke him with Q lvl 1 and you can continue the trade if he wastes/misses his Q. Can go on him lvl 2 but make sure his W is not active bc that's where all his damage is. Windwall his Q and make sure his W is down and you will win every duel against him. Lastly, When you dismount him back off and get your 3rd nado to finish him off to make sure he doesn't remount in time.”
iTzToniOP says “This is another tricky matchup, try to trade him until he has almost no additional HP. If Skaarl is very low HP and you get the cooldowns, its all in moment. Try to wait until he wastes his W autos and go for the dismount.”
Nabura says “Fake going for minions to sidestep his E+Q combo and punish him hard if he misses it, Kled doesn't level W until he goes for his first all in, if he levels W laning phase will become a lot easier as he will be forced to use spells or tiamat to avoid using his W on minions.”
TotallyEclipse says “Don't fight him if he Q's you, otherwise look to all in him and save your E for when his W is up. Be sure to only fight him dismounted when your E is up because he gets mounted really fast.”
Daxaison says “Watch out early levels he will jump onto you. Dont try to use e to escape his second q its not worth it. Just chill out, spare your w for when he is off mount since if you w him when he is falling of his mount he cancel your w and you're self stunned. ”
JuarezLOL says “its very easy and a lane dominate for jax because you can deny all of his spells except Q
the only thing you need to do is dodge his Q in early game or simply stay in the minion wave in order to let minion attacks him
ACE4291 says “Fought him a few times and won.
he can dash at you but with his nerfs... he isnt as effective on tahm as perivously. bully early.... just watch out for his passive as in a close fight can surpise you with a health jump. ”
Hunter23b says “Kled is one of the biggest counters to akali in top lane, try to avoid this match up if possible. He has a lot of poke and a lot of damage output with his W and his Q inflicting grevous”
CourtesyD0Prata says “Personal Ban when I go TOP lane, watch out to his Q and his Courage Bar, don't go in trades you can't win / Meu ban pessoal quando jogo TOP, cuidado com seu Q e sua barra de coragem, não faça trocas das quais você não ganha.”
Mr. Popper says “The Kled v Gnar Matchup is whoever screws up first. Other than that you can safely lane against kleds and they can impose on the wave as his all in is pretty scary. You can take the Aery Build, Fleet Build, or Grasp Build and be very effective into Kled. ”
HIGH TEST TOP88 says “Quite rough early but you win hard at blade. Dismount him, disengage if you can, then reengage with ult after you get your cooldowns back up.
Take bone plating.
Best way to kill him dismounted is to ult and stun him.
Beatport Expo says “Skill matchup but he has the upperhand If Skarl comes back before you could kill him. DO NOT swallow him If Skarl's health is very little since you'll bring away Skarl instead of Kled's health, so eat Kled instead of Skarl. Engage him AFTER he throw away his W to kill minions”
Kingarthur720 says “Kled is a champion who will be able to stick on to you so if you can avoid it dont pick into him but if you blind picked graves take fleet runes or Hail of blades for early trading power and to be able to scale into the late game. He will reduce your healing with Q and will win most all ins, just play to get turrets and ping when he is missing because kled like to roam with R
VIP Titan says “Kled is one of the hard to fight. Since with maxing your E, he has his little purple bars to get away from your true damage.
Make sure no W and Q Kled than he basically not got a power spike, When in fight time about 5 seconds ish than back off. So that he hasn't got his Q to turns
Max E not Q ! ”
RivalOCE says “Dodge his Q at all costs, disengage immediately if he hits it. Try E his W damage. Don't get baited into overchasing once he's dismounted, Kled can turn the fight really easily. You outscale, go even/survive lane and you're sweet.”
ShaharKarisi says “A skilled Kled can demolish you, while a poorly skilled one will die every minute. Try your hardest to avoid his level 2 all-in. Try to test your limits when you reach level 3 to see where you stand.”
TrinityForceYasuo says “Try to block his Q, its pretty much the main ability which helps him lands him combo afterwards (level 3+). Fight him in a minion wave so you can kite around when he dashes on you or tries to hit you with his Q. When you see that he activates his W it will most likely mean he's looking to go in for a trade and a possible all-in so again here try to dash on the minions till that BS expires.”
Subject3 says “kled is a simple character to watch out for, you simply gotta play around his uhmmm... the pokey thingy he does 3 times that does hp percent damage, once he uses it try and look for a fight, if he doesnt bait, q slow him if his trying to engage and let his tri poke thing wear off before going in.
Discord Rengar Mains says “This match up is just dumb. This used to be alright, but riot is a good company and decided to give him 60% reduction to healing, so we cant just W-W the trades in this match up. It is still possible to trade if you dodge his hook and avoid the healing reduction, using the same standard W-W trade. play this one very cautiously”
Discord Rengar Mains says “Snowball lane, but his Q tips the lane in his favor because of the heal reduction and if he manages to drop his entire combo on you will get forced out of lane very fast. If you get a lead on him however he is just free candy, like most yordle champions in this game. Always be careful around his E+Q combo, if he lands it he will inmediately win the trade and if he has W up his potential damage is massive. Try to put up as much of a distance as you can if he lands Q on you, else the healing reduction will make retaliation impossible. If both his Q and W are down just throw yourself at him, he can only E away and you can easily deal with him for at least 10 seconds after that. Whenever he is dismounted, either keep some distance so he doesn't hit you with his shotgun and get too much Courage, or jump at him if he doesn't have W and can't get Skaarl back fast enough because you WILL kill him. Do note that if he gets ahead, it's game over. Always respect his level 6, warn other lanes whenever he is not in lane so they don't get caught by surprise.
Ignite is good if you think you can kill him early, otherwise TP. Both conqueror and grasp work well depending on what you plan to do in this matchup.”
Itreallyhim says “Skill matchup, Kled deals a ton of damage and is super annoying, Try to trade short trades with him, Use Reverse rake (E-ing infront of yourself to push enemies back)
If he goes on you, Try to save your ult for when he dismounts. Then the kill is guaranteed.”
Circas says “Ahh Kled. Another annoying Yordle.
You need to dodge his Bear-trap-on-a-rope (Q) and build up stacks before going in like most match ups.
The main thing you need to play around is his ability Violent Tendencies (W) because he cannot control when he gets to activate it. Every 14 seconds he gets empowered auto attacks and if you see him waste it on minions GO IN ON HIM. This is where a lot of his damage comes from early on soa good Kled will zone you off the wave when he has this ability primed and ready because it will chunk you hard.
Kled also has a lot of sticking power himself so when the lane is shoved in you need to stand back and play it safe.
Do not get baited by Mini Kled because if he has his Violent Tendencies (W) up he will instantly get Skarl back and a ton of health with it if he gets to use it on you.
Playing around his W is key! Be careful because this match up plays differently and can be strange.
As the game progresses you can fight him easily with items. especially with the split build he can't do anything. Always fight him in minion waves for stacks plus mobility so you can dance around him and he should never be able to hit his Q.
Don't get baited by his passive, avoid his very tele graphed Q ability, pay attention to his on hit passive.”
Rivenetto says “Kled is just another early game bully.His Q nerf makes him to go into Major threat instead of Extreme. You want to trade with him only when his W is down. Its passive ability so he must use it if he want to take the creep.If he dismounts from chicken you must kill him very fast if u have all of ur abilities up,if not,wait for them and dont trade until then.”
ItsPaulygon says “Easy match up for you. The only time you will have a hard time with him is when you get ganked. But in all stages of the game, you win. When he engages on you, fight back, he can never win against you unless he baits you.”
Erenando says “Don't get hit by his chains. His damage hurts a lot and in most of the cases when fighting him he'll get Skarll back because he can easily kite you with his E. He can always run off and he will make your lane a pain in the ass. He also makes it easy for his jungler to dive you. This lane will be very risky and it highly depends on how wellyour enemy performs with Kled.”
Nicklstherealone says “HE CAN EASYLY KITE YOU OR BAIT YOUR ULT AND ALWAYS IS ABLE TO RUN AWAY WITH HIS ULT. YOU ALSO WILL HAVE LONG FIGHTS WHICH ARE REALLY GOOD FOR YOU. TIP: TRY TO SURVIVE THE LANING PHASE. WHEN YOUR TEAM STARTS TO TEAMFIGHT THEN GO SPLIT PUSH (PUSHING YOUR MINIONS ALONG YOUR LANE. WITHOUT HELPING IN TEAMFIGHTS). ”
Dannala says “Top: Pre 3 poke is safe as long as you don't get caught by his hook. Baiting his W to proc and run out is important to win any prolonged fights. His hook also causes grievous wounds which reduces your healing, if hit try to disengage.
Jungle: If he invades your most valid option would be to disengage, unless you have the upper hand by a noticeable margin (HP/LVL/Item difference).
Late: He is a Hydra builder so later on your spiderlings won't have an impact against him. He will be extremely tanky and elusive with Skaarl and can out sustain a prolonged with.”
ShinyEmo says “Has an annoying early damage but after first item (Guinsoo or BotRK), he's pretty easy to deal with. Dodge his Q with your Q but if you are already caught, then Q when his pull is about to trigger. ”
Average Ahri says “Kled will win an all in trade so just Q him and run. If he dashes you, counter with your W. Be very careful when you tower dive him. He cancel all CC and takes no dmg when he is in his passive animation.”
Thr3shPrinc3 says “Kled can be a difficult matchup for Thresh, but there are some small stuff you can do to ensure you win the lane. You can flay Kled out of his dash and deny him the second part of his dash aswell, but the dash isn't clear to see before he actually starts dashing so it might be difficult. Don't use your W shield when he hits you with Q as it will only break the shield and cause you to not get any benefit from using W. You can poke him out of lane and if you cancel his E he doesn't have another gap closer. If Kled starts roaming it doesn't help you try to follow so just shove your lane and try to get plates or invade the enemy jungle and steal some camps. Kled scales really well but late game with Rapid Firecannon you just be able to stay at a range and just keep poking him to death.”
ForgottenProject says “If Kled Qs you, Parry the second part (the pull)
He either gets stunned for it, or has to waste his dash to dodge it
Remember he goes untargetable for a short period after he jumps off Skaarl
Watch for ganks early
Kled will not win the matchup if he doesn’t get ganks vs Fiora”
Pedrokis says “Skill matchup chata. / Cuidado com o engage dele com o E, ele gruda fácil em você. / A corda dele (Q) corta cura, ferrando uma das principais armas do Aatrox: a cura absurda dele por causa da passiva do E e da Death's Dance. / Assim como o Darius, é só evitar de fazer trocas longas com ele e ir pokeando até ele ficar atrás pra você dar all-in.”
Trial_By_Barrel says “The problem with Kled is that you have to play somewhat aggressive since he is one of the best tower divers in the game. If you can poke him and keep the wave away from your tower when you're low then you should have no issues with him.”
Braddik says “Don't fight him if he Q's you, otherwise look to all in him and save your E for when his W is up. Be sure to only fight him dismounted when your E is up because he gets mounted really fast.”
Daedralus says “God I hate this champion so much. Whoever had the idea to give him the passive he has is evil. His dueling is very powerful, and you should always look to use E against his W, as those 4 hits are lethal. You must kill him before he gets his passive and his health back, as if you are without Q and R when that happens, means you will be dead. On the positive side, being without his passive likely means W is active on him due to low HP. Before going in, wait your cool downs a little as you will be easily able to chase him anyway with your immense MS and his little MS. Once you have enough to kill him, make sure you avoid his attacks while attempting to come near so he does not build fury and and finish him off afterwards. ”
TheBiskoppen says “Kled is hard to 100-0 there and he gets Skarl back fairly easy against melee match ups. You wanna get him close to demount, and then q him off save w to stun him as he gets out of demount”
NoxianBlood says “Some Kled players could be tricky like baiting their low health and taking back half health by making Skarll give him a ride after he gained courage from Kled's autos, just try to out tank him don't make him snowball and get ahead or he will be so tanky and deal so much damage at the same time, get tanky and try to kick him off Skarll and all in him when he's on foot like ulting him, his movement speed is so low so he can't dodge it while he's on foot, so try to all in him when he's without Skarll.”
STIERNACKENTYP says “Hard matchup. Since this champ has no mana or Cooldowns he can always all in and harass you. Play passive + Farm, dont try to fight him early, he will always win with his passive.”
Split King says “I love playing Kled, and I love playing AGAINST Kled when I am playing Teemo. You can whittle him down and when he goes to attack you, just use blind so his "Violent Tendencies" will be wasted. Do be careful of his all-in if your blind is on cooldown though, but other than that it should be easy.”
BeautifulWinter says “I like playing against a kled and I typically win against them too. This is a black cleaver match up for the extra health as well as the CD reduction.
Prior to 6 passive. Post 6 agro when ult is up. If he lets you poke him down prior to level 6 and lose his mount you can play agro.”
Valorkyrie Quinn says “Kled can be very aggressive. He can easily burst you down if he has his W, and he can just rush at you with his EQ combo. He is a very good duelist, but lacks teamfighting power.
Tip: Play passive and freeze your lane if possible. Quinn cannot win 1v1s against him. You can try to trade pre-6 if you can land your Q on him.
Calling for team assistance is the best way because all of Kled's abilities are single-targeted. He will stay in a bad position if you freeze lane, and he is open to ally ganks.”
Big Belly Bop says “One of Senna's hardest match ups. You need to be very careful when walking up to CS as he can all in you any moment during laning phase. Poke him and ask for ganks. Flash + TP, Doran's Shield + 1 HP, Sustain rune page.”
Verdehile says “short trades only early game to get him off the mount, but do not get q'd. You can only short trade when his q is down, other than that try to make him use it by walking up and side stepping. You beat him later with ER and igniting him when his mount is down. You can also all in him lvl 1 if you have good amount of hp and fury but he has to miss q or have it on cd. ”
9690 says “Kled feels like a skill match up. His trades are pretty efficient if he hits Q with the grievous wounds buff. Trading early can be difficult. Dodge Q and we win trades. Get tabis and we win at 6.”
Loevely says “Ban this champion. The recent buffs made Kled much much harder for Rengar to actually fight. Grasp is your best bet. Only time you should look to trade with him is when his W is down. If you manage to knock him off of Skarl, check to see if his W is still active before chasing him down. If it's up, leave him be until it's down. Whenever it's down he wont be able to generate as much fury.
Defensivity1 says “If you dodge his E that allows him to latch on to you you will win the trade, be sure to spam your e on him before he hits level 6, its recommended to go with the conqueror page but the grasp page should be fine aswell if you sidestep his only skillshot you will outtrade him and can potentially look for an all in at level 6 with your maiden. ”
Quezel says “This matchup can be hard early as his trades are way better but after seekers tabi you can easily stat check him and walk up to poke with q constantly his dash throws him through you so you can r to cut off his escape very easily and he cant escape from you if he demounts.”
SNOBOY says “Hard to play against because of Skaarl. You have to chunk him until he loses his steed, then burst him before he has time to remount it. He can match your roams with his ult. Not a fun champion to play against.”
mightydylan101 says “Kled can be annoying as once you get him low he can resummon his mount and turn the fight or run away. His stun has good range but if you casts it on you and you walk out of the area to cancel you can turn and punish him with a quick q auto or auto q auto if you have enough space and time.”
ProgettoYorick says “Kled in early is a bully, but it is possible to farm against him.
OTP tip: try to finish the ninja tabbi and after level 6 he won't do anything to you if he hasn't taken any kills.”
Skarner Main says “Kled is a lane bully and skarner just want to farm and scale to midgame and your cc will brake if hes on his mount and you dont have enough burst dmg to kill him off mount unless you're ahead
Just try to avoid fighting with him you outscale him”
Karnan says “A skillbased matchup. It can go either way in this fight, BUT if it goes his way he can snowball out of control. Be very careful and dodge his Q. The first trigger of Q isn't dangerous, but the second one is. If he loses his form he is just begging you to R him. Make him your bitch. ”
AlienMV says “Be ready to dodge his Q when possible or when he decides to E in. Him landing either of these abilities probably won't kill you, but chunk you down a good amount.
Once he wastes these abilities, feel free to try and get a few CS. Otherwise stay safe.”
Rime101 says “I’ve been struggling a lot with kled lately matchup might be Kled favored.
Early seeker's armguard is good here assuming they don't have an AP jungler like Elise or Nidalee
His Q is easy to dodge just don't stand still in lane
sauronkaiser says “If wasnt enough with his strenght in lane (he is Renekton 2.0) he can also oneshot your 4 ghouls instantly with his E. Another retarded interaction riot never fixed. Play very safe aganist this guy and never get confident.”
Melloe says “My main ban. His grievous wounds are very strong and when he dismounts and his second hp-bar triggers, those 200 hp is seen as 'full hp' so the w damage is really low so executing him is tough.”
picklehater77 says “Mostly a skill matchup. Time your all-ins whenever his W, Violent Tendencies, is down. You can tell as he'll have a glowing axe and special sound effects when attacking. Once it's down, go in and dismount him, and wait for him to use it again before blowing him up a second time. ”
Jnewbringspain says “Kled is just really annoying because you'll have to save your ult. Feast before he hops off his creature and you've wasted it. He also has mobility, and his 4th hit on W along with his ult does % damage which sucks ass. ”
ineptpineapple says “Root him as much as you can to stop him from messing you up. If he bear traps you E and root him to get away. Otherwise its pretty standard poke him until his stupid lizard gets scared and then just go in and ult him.”
AsomeSonic says “don't let him prob conqueror, if he dashes onto you and you wannna get out w away and he can't follow unless his q got you, q him whenever he wants to fight and keep it short, you win in sustain”
superbardock says “Basically an angry, crazy, Renekton. The good news about this one at least is that he doesn't actually have an OUT like renekton does. He can dive on you all day but if you survive until skarl dies you can easily outrun him and let your turrets clean up. Just be careful of his aggressive abilities as you can find yourself dead quickly if you don't... Plus Kled players in general seem hyper aggressive, but that may just come with the territory. ”
P1Legend says “This match up is just dumb. This used to be alright, but riot is a good company and decided to give him 60% reduction to healing, so we cant just W-W the trades in this match up. It is still possible to trade if you dodge his hook and avoid the healing reduction, using the same standard W-W trade. play this one very cautiously ”
EpicDan01 says “Despite his Q nuking our healing, after Sunfire he has relatively little kill pressure. Don't try to kill him early as he can remount and kill you. Wait until he burns his W (fast attacks) on minions befire attempting to kill.”
Poppu says “Manipulate waves pre-tiamat, and save W for his dash and use Grasp procs + Q to out trade. Once he is in Yordle form, save W for his Q and make sure you kill him before his bar becomes full.”
Aizo says “Very difficult to deal with. This guy is very good at diving due to his dismount mechanic and can 100 to 0 you at level 3 - 4 if he feels like it. Make sure that you aren't giving him free trades because you may end up dying and making yourself have a really bad time”
SoulHero says “Lvl 1 try not to trade as he can get skarl back easily get dorans shield second wind he is gonna poke with q. You outscale this man once you get deaths dance. Make sure to get tabis. WHEN HE Q'S YOU, YOU CAN TURN AS YOU E RIGHT AS THE Q PULLS, IT GIVES YOU AN EXTENDED FLIP. like you shield negates his q dmg and chains ur dash as you get pulled in, hopefully flipping him, ult him when skarl is gone and you should win. Don't fight too much early.”
Dakrglory says “If anyone is a real threat in lane phase it is this horse guy because he auto attacks and can pull you. Even if you get him off his horse, the problem is you’ll spend mana doing so and eventually doing this technic vs Kled isn’t effective. I recommend only farming and auto attack him once a while to heal with your passive.. ”
Petethebossch says “A good kled will be able to hold pressure in the lane and stop you from stacking. If you can knock him into no skaarl form then you can resume lane pressure and stack freely. Also ward for dives.”
Lynboe says “Kled a le potentiel de vous kill sur un all-in au niveau 3, il faut faire très attention à ce moment de la partie, car une fois passé et si vous ne mourrez pas avant votre premier recall pour prendre des Tabi Ninja, alors vous devriez être en sécurité pour la majeure partie de la laning phase, vous n'aurez qu'a le punir lorqu'il décidera de vous all-in et vous n'aurez qu'à l'attraper avec votre E quand il essaiera de s'échapper.”
Jnewbringspain says “Kled is easy because his damage mostly comes from basic attacks. If he lands Beartrap on a Rope and looks to fully engage you, activate Counter Strike right before it pulls you in, then start trading. Once you dispose of Skaarl, keep your distance and let cooldowns recover. Bait his pistol shot, then jump in on him and attack.”
WTMudkip says “Mr.Yeehaw Yordle is extremely strong right now with his combos. I recommend not fighting him early unless you're cofident you'll win. Please don't all in him when skarl is half health. He'll just gain it back with a few autos and Q.”
Angela du Seithr says “Kled est récemment devenu très fort et a des facultés de trade bien supérieurs à bon nombre de champions. Il pourra garder de la distance, en prendre facilement ou alors all-in sans retenue. Il peut également facilement vous rattraper si vous essayer de gank une autre lane.”
PandaSenpai101 says “His Q is really easy to parry, and if you stun him, it should be easy to all in and engage him. Be mindful that when he R's and targets you, you can't stun him, but it's better to parry it. ”
Devitt45 says “This is a skill match up. You HAVE to run from his bear trap, otherwise you will take a lot of damage from his combo. Kleds early game is better than Garens in this build. If you can manage to get Kled off of Skaarl, don't let him poke you, and try to get him low enough to ult Kled. NEVER ULT SKAARL!”
Zestysquid says “Most important thing here is that he can dodge box fear and aggro when he loses his mount. This can lead to a lot of frustrating situations where he almost dies. If you let him land his hook he can be baited easily.”
Jnewbringspain says “You have a solid means of escape whenever he wants to engage. His W is a big source of his damage, but they are basic attacks so you can block it with your own W. If he bear traps you, you can always E out of range before it pulls you in. Like most matchups you'll want to do short fights before backing off.”
The_Unf0rgiv3n says “To win trades with Kled, just activate W right before his 4th attack from his W passive. When he's dismounted, if you have Sheen, it takes 1 Q + 1 sec. of spin and then you can Ult him while he's still silenced and he can't try to flash away.”
Prince Afghan says “Kled has a strong presence in early laning but he falls off in the 1 v 1 once you have a few items under your belt. Past level 11 he should have no chance of killing you or stopping your splitpush.”
Bombabo says “Thanks to the grievous wounds from his Q, Kled can win skirmishes faily easily. Try your best to keep him close to being knocked off of Skaarl, then commit once you know you can kill him with a quick combo”
0mega best says “Just don't 1v1 him. Poke and dodge his skillshots, you should be ok. Try getting an early kill since he is stronger than you early, therefore, be careful, because he does a ton of damage and can randomly charge you with is ult which is pretty annoying.”
Lil Tidepod says “I personally think Kled is the most dangerous matchup for any Sion. He has CC, can turn the tide of any fight with his passive if applied correctly, has high damage, and can match your push or even outpush you. He's mobile and has high damage, and you are probably the farthest thing from mobile without your utlimate. It'll be hard to land your Q with his dash up. If you can somehow manage to poke him down off Skarl, you can win the majority of fights early, but the odds of you being able to do that are very low. Late game he'll have insane HP and it'll be difficult to kill him alone. You probably won't be able to kill him alone, really. I recommend just farming this one out and calling for jungle help.”
ImpossibleLogic says “Kled on his own is probably the best match up for you. While on his steed, he can't keep up with your kite and Q's so you can easily take him. Once he is off though, he can easily evade you but if you can zone him, free kill.”
GrGamingTeo says “Hands down one of the most annoying matchups in the rentire game. Go for small trades when close to your tower. If you fight him for more than 2 seconds he will youtrade you and kill you. Q spam him untill you knock him diwn from his chicken and then go for the kill.”
BubbaStudmuffin says “Kled will go about even with you for a simple reason. You both benefit from long all in fights. That said, here is how you beat him. Before you both go all in on your fight you need to build up your W's passive. Have your shield ready to activate at max. His courage can only start to build up after he loses Scarl. Save your pull for after you dismount him from Scarl. Then when he tries to kite you with his shotgun blast, and he will, thats when you pull his butt back in and dominate his face!”
Big Boy Matty D says “Difficult to kill pre 6 unless he gets overconfident and fights in your minions. If you're going for a kill consider saving your E until he is dismounted if you can, this will stop him from re-mounting as fast and can be the difference between a kill or a death.
Post 6 trade heavily if you are near your tower, only be afraid if you are pushed up. Try to get him to dismount while saving your ult and then disengage. When your cooldowns are back up you can burst him without him having a chance to re-mount.”
The_CuItivator says “Another match that completely depends on the summoner. Pre 6 he has a bit of advantage thanks to the bird. but after that you should watch out for his passive and as soon as it is down. Wreck him.”
MrFakeHero1 says “NEVER USE Q JUST TO POKE HIM.
If the Kled player knows what he is doing this will be a very tough match up. If the player doesn't know the champion well. This is a very easy match up. *good kleds will all in you every time, dash, hook(1), auto, pull(2) auto dash auto ignite. if you are below 80% health that alone will always kill you.”
Khazem says “Play around his W cooldown and you should be okay. Be very careful of his all-in potential whenever he lands a Q and generally try not to overextend to get him off his mount as he is still a champion when he does get dismounted. Keep your distance, poke and kite.”
ApexDresden says “Kled will be quite annoying to deal with just because of his aggressive laning phase, you mainly want to avoid dueling him and instead trade with him, once he's quite low you should consider an all-in.”
Tokor says “Si vous êtes prudent, ça ne devrait pas trop mal se passer. Les sorts que vous devez absolument éviter de sa part c'est le E et le R principalement. Vous pouvez grâce à votre W bien vous positionner et ainsi esquiver ses sorts.”
ElleryTheViking says “Very skill orientated matchup. Olaf has the upper-hand though. Dodge his bear-trap and then use e and spam Q. When he's off Skaarl, it's important you don't let him get back on it. Stand at a distance and throw Q's one at a time slowly wearing him down. When he's low enough, use ghost and ult and a Q E should kill him. Tabis are very useful early in this matchup for survivability. ”
E61K says “Save your ult for his dismounted form. And don't get bamboozled by his Q and E. Since he can juke your Q really well with it. Wait for the Q to pull you and then E him to bounce him off of you and then use your Q. Other than that care about his jungler since his Ult into Q is a lot of trouble against you considering he does max % HP damage. Tabis are godly against him.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: Extended fights, Sustained Damage, Tanky. Weaknesses: Low mobilty, outscaled, predictable CC. Pretty solid damage early on so you if don't play reckless you should be fine. Main abilities to worry about include his bear trap and his Violent Tendencies. Riposte the bear trap right before it's about to snap and aim it towards him so that it inflicts the stun onto him. As far as Violent tendencies go, if you are sure he will hit you with the 4th hit of the ability, riposte that as most of the damage comes from the 4th hit. Once you have the auto attack speed slow applied to him, he should pose a very little threat to you. Also, you can Riposte his ultimate so keep that in mind if he comes charging down the lane towards you. Your true damage and % damage should be enough to handle him so Q poke a few times dodging his Q and All-in once he’s low enough.”
Miracle Matter says “Kled is another matchup that you're quite strong again if you have some experience with it, but which can be very volatile and snowball out of your hands if not. Just do not let him E onto you with his Q. His damage is immense -- he can force your Ulti very easily.
That said, you can use your E - Speed boost to sidestep his Ultimate engages, and you can harass him down from afar fairly easily as long as you are comfortable dodging his E Dash + Q combos. If he can't Q you, he can't do anything -- you just wail on him from afar and then kill him without ever letting him close enough to regenerate Skaarl.
If you feel threatened, feel free to go the tanky alternative (Iceborne Gauntlet after Archangel's Staff) build, but it isn't necessary.”
drunken hunter says “Kled has been a champ that i banned every game - especially when he was new or free to play.
Kled got this passive called Skaarl - he rides on a monster and has 1000 hp and more in lvl 1. If you deal enough dmg to Skaarl, he will run away and Kled will have like 20% hp. If u dont get the gank to the right time or you cant kill Kled for the next minute, he will do some auto hits or abilities and get all the health back! retard champ???
Anyways you wont have an easy laning phase, better play safe.”
TSA_Exotic says “I would say Kled is just hard of a matchup and Tryndamere or Nasus for Vayne because of his dash and Q to gap close on you, but if you can get ahead and dodged is abilities with Tumble then you make the matchup a lot easier.”
Proxxecube says “Kled will mind game you if you're not careful. He typically doesn't have enough damage on just Skaarl to kill you, and once he gets off he still doesn't. The issue is he will bait you super hard, the get Skaarl back. Be extremely cautious when you see him with high meter, and only dedicate if you are absolutely sure you can win before he gets the dumb lizard.”
Bakiraka says “Kled is a great matchup for you in lane. If you can poke him out at level 1, he'll lose all of his engage and basically be helpless against you. When mounted, he's a little bit more dangerous, but you can weather the storm with your sustain.”
Trixelkour says “With his W he can just melt you and out trade you. Stay safe and farm up, call for gank and bait out his E to prevent him from escaping. Get Thornmail into Sorcerer boots to duel against him. Take Exhaust and Aftershock to win the 1v1 and you just might win. Play smart around teamfights since his engage is very strong.”
WhispeRCZ says “lots of mobility, but dont have realy good all in at the start so when he comes to use his 4 strike combo just take it and then kill him, once he has his mount down its free just dont let him stack the mount back before you kill him”
E61K says “Always keep an eye on his courage meter when he is dismounted. He can turn fights around from 1HP if you aren't careful. You can windwall both types of Q's, which will greatly cut his damage output. What really cuts down his damage though is waiting for him to use his W on minions and then going in for trades. If he ults you make sure to windwall in the opposite direction he is coming from. Reason for that is that he will knock you behind the windwall and he wants to follow up with his Q right away, which will then get blocked. Windwalling in the direction where he is ulting from will cause you to get knocked back way too far away from your windwall and you will get hit by the Q. Kled likes to build health items like Gnar and not much resistance. His early game when his W is up is disgusting so never ever fight him at that stage when that ability is up.”
undeadsoldiers says “Kled - Conqueror
Early items (in order) - Phage, Tabi, Tiamat (Bramble if behind)
- All in lvl 1 (passive stacked; only if he misses Q)
- No all in lvl 2 (unless he uses his three empowered autos on the wave)
- Play safe in lane (only take good trades; he'll win most trades early)
- Deny his Q pull by Qing to a minion
- Take trades after he misses his Q and has used his three empowered autos on the wave
- Save W for his empowered autos
- Don't dive him under tower, even if he's dismounted
- Ult cooldown: 160/140/120
Omega best says “You must ban him at all time, play extremelly safe, build armor and wait for ganks, if comes near you early game damage him but dont get into his trap or else he will kill you very easily with his dumb passive”
Tazllama says “Bard's specialty is bursting, and kled's passive with his stupid lizard halts your plans. Kled also has tons of mobility, and is able to get on top of you and regenerate all his health by summoning his annoying companion. poking with meep-enhanced autos is really useful.”
Zachlikespizza says “Kled's all in potential is very annoying and his dash more so. However once he gets off skaarl you will most likely have the burst damage to finish him off. If it's not up back off and wait for cool downs.”
Mouadyam says “not too hard but not easy either, go for longer trades if he goes in like a fool, dont ult him before he unmounts, save it until you kill skaarl. some early armor / tabi can go long ways”
Demon Lord AC0 says “My current second Top lane main. Kled has very high damage and high mobility while also having more HP. He becomes a high threat after his Tiamat with Tabi, which allows him to out trade you very easily. Since he will be always agressive towards you you can start Doran's Blade and Rush Bork since his base HP is very high. You can windwall both of his Qs, but i'd recommend doing so when he falls off Skaarl since it will negate him courage, making it harder for him to retrieve her. If he does retrieve her while you're trading with him, you're probably dead, so be careful”
iam colorblind says “If he is in his small form u can kill his very fast!
But if u use ur Ult while hes at 50% HP and u do to much damage he will dodge ur E while going in small form.
Be careful of laneganks if he use his Ultimate!”
Skullsunderer says “Skarrl can fake you out and mistake to be low and you'll ult. Pretty easy to kill when unmounted due to him having the slowest movement speed when unmounted. If he is gonna get Skarrl again leave the fight, he will turn it around so fast you won't have time to Q.”
joelblack says “Your best way to win is to be super mobile and use your E smartly. Poke him until Skaarl is almost dead. Once he is, thats your signal to all in. Once he dismounts, he has no mobility besides his Q, so make sure he's pushed into you so that he doesn't have time to run away to his tower. Basically don't let him engage on you by E'ing away and poke him until his mount is almost dead, then all in. Ignite can give you the upper edge, but risk losing mobility, which Kled has with his ult, so if you take it, make sure you get ahead by shutting him down for good and killing him repeatedly. ”
Ashnard says “Kled is a very aggressive laner with strong early all in. Play defensive and freeze early on while poking him every chance you get. You can all in him when he gets dismounted and you have cooldowns up. Early tabis/kindlegem highly recommended.”
thedunkening111 says “Don't ever underestimate a Kled, man. Go for auto reset trades only when his w is on cooldown. He doesn't have a lot of kill pressure without it, but with it, he'll fuck you up real good.
Xplosion123 says “Não é exatamente uma Counter-Play para Darius, porém a passiva dele pode estragar uma troca, pois o dano que ele levar com a vida da Skaarl, ele não tomará na própria vida, e numa troca, o tempo que você levar para tentar tirar a vida do Kled, ele irá te dar um dano absurdamente maior.”

Tips Against Kled in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
Phrxshn says “Dodge his Bear Trap on a Rope(Q) and you make out-trades with Kled. Avoid fighting him while he has Violent Tendencies as it buffs his attack speed and damage and the buff last 4 seconds. Prepare yourself to juke out his Charge!(R). (Recommended Items: Rylai's Scepter, Ninja's Tabi, Hextech Protobelt) (Outscaling Edge: Singed) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Kled) (Mega Adhesive prevents his charge from being cast, but does not stop it) (Mega Adhesive stops his Jousting) (Fling overrides Jousting) ”
Scyrine says “Another annoying counter to akali. I usually ban him every single time i play toplane since not only does his CC hook reveal you, his other ability reveals you if you're near him. You have to really play this one smart and try to predict when hes going to use his hook. I usually hard engage after baiting it out and engaging with E and trying to trade out as much damage as possible. Sometimes playing agro lvl 6 is also a good option if you can land everything since he might miss his hook. Honestly another good tip is to E whenever he dashes in to avoid fighting but If you have 6 you can kill him if he doesnt have hook honestly. I feel like the biggest problem is the CC that comes after that inital hook.”
Dr Eggmund says “Your poke is better as a ranged champion early game, your main priority is to farm and lower Kled's health bar so he loses his pet Skaarl. focus on poking him out of lane and getting rid of his Skaarl. ”
Sushi_Cat says “You will not kill him in the early game. While he cannot cleanse Death Realm like Olaf or Gangplank can, you do not have the burst damage early to kill Kled while he is dismounted. Most I can recommend is build Seeker's Armguard and hope he gets to big for his britches so you can E him backwards into your turret. (Sidenote: While not Morde specific, mounted Kled has an animation for his Q. If you can time it right you can dodge his mounted Q every time.) ”
RikudouDovahkiin says “Kled's slow high mobility, shielding ability, extra bonus and damage is higher than yours at 1v1 which can be dead end for you if he has ignite at lane. Try to dodge his Q then you can poke him more easily. Probably he will build damage items so be care of his damage and try to kite him. When he ults, try to dodge with W. Probably stacking armor items will not help you, build ap-tank items and with a proper play, you are OK.”
1256 says “tryndas case, classic bruiser very hard to play against and can dive you even early (lv3), and even has roams with ulti, your best bet is to outscale him and its actually doable
only yasuo play says “Bullies you in lane all game by taking favorable trades with his q and w.
You lose any fights against him until you get PD and IE, and even then the fights are close.
Spam gank kled.
CallMeDaddyGR says “Kled is really annoying, even if you beat him early game, with just 1 or 2 kills he can comeback and comepletely destroy you, while he is also winning an all in fight with you early if he hits his q, so you have to poke him, prevent him from farming too much, dodge his q and if he gives you the chance freeze the wave and you should be good”
funkybtw says “Kled is also a hard counter against Talon because of his Q. Its hard for Talon to get away fast. Also Kled can easily push the wave in your tower, so its hard to roam against him. Same with Renekton, if he is back try to get free kills on other lanes.”
NebuIa says “Kled is pretty scary. Be EXTREMELY aware of his all in potential, as it is pretty ridiculous against most mages. Consider barrier, maybe phase rush, and just e him when he e's onto you. BE CAREFUL OF HIM E'ING BEHIND YOU! Once you learn the matchup it isn't the worst.”
Sneaky boi says “Some kleds go mid and dominate assasins so listen up and be carefull with this guy. If you're trading with him don't use your clone if he landed his Q on you as he will see you. if you manage to take of his passive all in on him with ult otherwise he will probably kill you. You could also try doing early trades if he wastes his Q or passive on minions.”
Yegie says “Kled is not really a midlaner, but someone did run him mid against me, very easy lane. He has no real way to threaten you and your aa and E poke will stop him from being able to get any real cs.”
Jazzmonkey says “Hard matchup. Wait until he use his passiv on minions and trade him then. Its pretty hard but you can counter his Q with your W. But if you Q you don't use your W, because he has vision on you. You can kill him actuly but never underistimate his passiv.”
Gambinos says “Kled is a champ I despise alot, as when he has a his gage up, he basically gets those health back. He's a pain in the ass to go against. Try to not feed him as it'll be very hard to get him without another person to back you up.
Poke him until you get him into his mini form and then all in. WW at the time you think you should cause he gets his dino back pretty quick.”
ProfessionalWarwickMain says “Kled is basically a Weapon of Mass Destruction. If you are the unfortunate soul unlucky enough to have to face a Kled in combat at any point, you should go ahead and uninstall because your entire client will be decimated by the true power of Kled.”
LFS_aXent says “A smart kled won't think twice before giving your ass a piece of his axe. Once he is off skarl, you're more vulnerable than you think. Force him off, and fall back, harass while he farms minions and watch his courage.”
Jadiac5 says “Very very annoying if he can hook you you really need the help of your laner or you probably die. and if you cant one hit him he will jump off his horse chicken or whatever and have another chance to kill your while all of your abilities are on CD, but your ult. so you will probably know what to use to get out of there if you are low.”
