Welcome to my guide for Kuzenbo, King of the Kappas. He is super fun to play, and easy for new players to learn on. His kit allows him to be easily one of the best bruisers in the game, holding up extremely well due to his tankiness, while also getting off plenty of damage. Where I found he shines the most is in Joust, where he has a menacing presence in lane. Feel free to use this guide and change it up for other gamemodes.
Hard CC w/ Sumo Slam
Shell Spikes can be used nearly anytime
Nene Kappa has excellent peel and kill potential
Sumo Slam can cancel abilities
Bouncing your Nene increases its range
Your ult is a great initiator and has CC immunity
You lose protection if hit with hard CC (e.g. knockups, silences, cripples)
Your Nene will attack the nearest objective indiscriminately
CC immunity makes Sumo Slam less effective
Your ult is short and can be dodged
Your basic combos:
Nene Kappa -> Spiked Shells: The damage you take with your 2 reduces the cooldown of your 1, enough said
Sumo Slam -> Nene Kappa: Allows for good peel and initiation, harassing the enemy into a corner
Sumo Slam -> Watery Grave: Amazing tool for team fights, pin down your target and then pop your ult and watch the whole team go flying around the dishwasher
Shoes of Focus - There is really no reason you shouldn't be buying anything but these, the extra cooldown and mana is a HUGE plus when it comes to Kuzenbo or any other guardian
Gauntlet of Thebes - This is your bread and butter, this will allow you to cultivate a pool of health early game, while giving you and your team a good boost of protections once it evolves. This will allow Kuzenbo to stay in the fight way longer than w/o it.
Void Stone - Another essential piece to your build, a quintessential bruiser item for guardians. Void Stone enables your aggressive playstyle that Kuzenbo is built for, the aura effect helps you and your team when up close and personal.
Hide of the Nemean Lion - This shouldn't require explanation, reflects basic attack damage and stacks with your 2, pick this up and the ADC will fear you.
Pridwen - This is another nearly essential item, it gives you extra cooldown on your entire kit, in addition to some beefy protections. Pridwen's passive is also a huge boost for Kuzenbo, you can pop your ult in a teamfight, and chase them down with your explosive shield, which also happens to slow enemies.
Overall, Kuzenbo is a troll at heart. While he is significantly underrated in the current meta, is a great pick for anyone who loves a bruiser guardian. If you want to make the other team mad online, then you should pick him up as another god in your collection.
