With the latest patch 2.6, the Wild Rift Developers will be going to add one of the strongest champions of the game. It will be Kayle, The Righteous. She will be a Fighter who will go to the Top Lane. Her passive and skills make her one of the best champions for a 1v1 confrontation with anyone in Baron Lane. She has both ranged and melee abilities depending upon her passive. Players can get items that can suit either type of her attacks.

LOL Wild Rift Kayle Guide: Runes
As she levels up, Kayle’s passive helps her to gain Attack Speed, Movement Speed, Attack Range, and AOE damage on her basic attacks. Thus, the longer the match and fight last, the deadlier she becomes. These runes will help you to take advantage of her late-game power spike while also making her tanky enough for the early game.
Kayle is a late-game champion and her skills make it suitable for her to last long in team fights. She has skills that debuffs enemy champions, grant her and her nearest ally a buff, a long-range poke skill, and an ultimate that deals AOE damage while making her invulnerable. Thus, her skillset is one of the strongest within Wild Rift.
DIVINE ASCENT (PASSIVE)
Kayle’s attacks are empowered by the heavens as she levels up and spends skill points. Her wings are lit aflame as she progressively gains Attack Speed, Movement Speed, Attack Range, and waves of fire on her attacks.
Kayle conjures a portal, summoning a celestial sword that pierces through enemies, slowing, damaging, and reducing the resistances of everyone hit with it.
Blessed by the divine, Kayle heals and grants movement speed to herself and the nearest ally.
Passive: Kayle’s celestial sword, Virtue, deals bonus magic damage to enemies she attacks.
Active: Kayle’s next attack smites her target with celestial fire, dealing bonus damage proportionate to their missing health.
Kayle makes an ally invulnerable and calls upon former Aspects of Justice to purify the area around her target with a holy rain of swords.
You should max out Starfire Spellblade first followed by Radiant Blast and Celestial Blessing. Upgrade Divine Judgement whenever it is available. Starfire Spellblade can execute low health enemies, so try to use it for last-hitting minions or enemy champions for maximum effect
LOL: Wild Rift Kayle Guide: Build
Kayle needs a lot of expensive items so that she can become deadly in the late game. She can be built using Ability Power, Attack Damage, or a mixture of both items depending upon the type of gameplay style of the player. It is recommended to start with Ability Power items with attack speed in the early game. Opting for Ability Damage items with lifesteal and critical damage will make it harder for opponent champions to build a defense against you.
Kayle gets +70 ability power, +25 ability haste, and +50% attack speed. The Bite passive makes basic attacks deal 15 (+15% ability power) bonus magic damage.
Gluttonous Greaves or Mercury Treads
If you want to sustain in your lane, you should go for Gluttonous Greaves for the extra life steal on your attacks. If your lane rival or the overall composition of the enemy team has too much magic and crowd control abilities, go for Mercury Treads instead. You can upgrade them into a Stasis Enchant for survivability in team fights or a Teleport Enchant if your focus is on split pushing or flanking the enemies.
Kayle gets a +30 attack damage and +60 ability power. The passives Energy Drain and Life Drain will give +15% Magical Vamp and 15% Physical Vamp respectively. With the Hextech Bolt passive, whenever Kayle hits an enemy champion with an attack or ability, it will shock them with 100-200 magic damage (+30% ability power) and will also slow them by 40% for 2 seconds. (It has a 30s cooldown).
Blade of the Ruined King
Kayle gets +20 attack damage and +35% attack speed. The Thirst passive gives +10% Physical Vamp. The Ruined Strikes passive makes Kayle’s attacks deal bonus physical damage equal to 6% of the enemy’s current health on hit. (Melee attacks deal 9%). Deals at least 15 damage, and against monsters deals a max of 60 damage. With the Drain passive, whenever Kayle hits a champion with 3 attacks or abilities, it deals 30-100 magic damage and steals 25% of their movement speed for 2 seconds. ( It has a 60s Cooldown).
It gives +80 ability power and +10 ability haste to Kayle. The Bane passive gives 55 movement speed. With the Spellblade passive, whenever Kayle uses an ability, it causes the next attack used within 10 seconds to deal bonus magic damage equal to 75% base attack damage + 50% ability power. (It has a 1.5s Cooldown) Damage is reduced by 50% against structures.
The last item can be the defensive item Sterak’s Gaze, which can give Kayle a bit of survivability in team fights. It gives +400 health to her and the Heavy Handed passive allows her to receive 50% of her base attack damage as bonus attack damage. The Lifeline passive is crucial as it allows Kayle to gain a shield that is equal to 75% bonus health and decays in 3 seconds when she receives damage that can lower her maximum health to below 35%. The shield has a 90-second cooldown. On using Lifeline passive, Kayle also starts Sterak’s Fury passive that increases her size and gives her 30% Tenacity for 3 seconds.
The first three attack items are pretty standard. Lich Bane and Sterak’s Gaze can be changed to other ability power, attack damage, or defensive items that suit the requirements of the game at that point in time.
