    What is the optimal build for Kali?

    I really like this god, she seems to be my kind of 'go ham and kill people' character, but I'm not quite sure how you were supposed to build her. You need to build AS, Power, Lifeasteal, crit and pen and that's a bit too much for 6 items.

    Right now I roll Devourer's Gauntlet>Ninja Tabi>Qin's Sais>Hastened Fatalis>Rage>Deathbringer with Fist of the Gods and Greater Sprint, but I also considered Achilles' Spear. My experience is people try to run away from you while their teammates chase me and do dmg, hence the Fatalis and the Sprint.

    This build however lacks any pen and I'm not sure if that's acceptable. Please help!

    Quin' sai's + Crit items is only acceptable if you are fed as f***...which is pretty hard or close to impossible vs a good enemy as kali.

    You want to go AS + quin sai's + cooldown reduction for that ult.

    At least to me this seems ok:

    Final build would be:

    -warrior tabi
    -qins
    -fatalis
    -executioner
    -defensive item
    -situational(winged blade when enemy has a lot of slows, witchblade/runic shield against adc's etc,)

    Actives would be beads and greater blink.

    Late game you can sell warior tabi for ninja if you didn't cap atk.speed with the rest of the build. Building some defense on her is important, because her damage comes not from burst, but from sustained presence in a teamfight, and you won't have your ult all the time to save you, also it is too easy lategame to get blown up or chain CC-ed without even getting a chance to use it, if you build full damage.

    Also, obvious thing to remember is to level up your 2 first (even before your ult), red pot start is also good, so your damage can actually contribute early game as well.

    What many people don't realise tough is that outside jungle Kali is also totally viable in solo. Since the bluestone rework her 2 is a very decent clear, she's extremely safe and can end games before 15-20 minute mark if you don't focus her lane.

    Switch that horrendous O-bow to Qin's for crying out loud. How can you pass up 12% damage in 1s?

    I usually do Qin's or Executioner although for Kali I do Odysseus for the attack speed.

    Fastest hitting assassin thanks to her attack chain and you need O-bow?

    She gets kited SOOOOO easily tho. I'm not even sure if she's viable, you jump in, they turn around and start running the other way and there's nothing you can do to catch up to them. Kinda wish she had some added mobility, since she's so aa reliant.
