Upon activation, Kha'Zix enters stealth and gains Unseen Threat Unseen Threat, increasing Movement Speed. Kha'Zix can cast Void Assault 2 Void Assault again for a short time after activation.


The bonus effects that Kha'Zix accrues for Unseen Threat ambushing a target make him a natural jungler. His core initiation skill, Leap Leap, allows him to stage ganks from unexpected angles, even over long distances or across terrain. If his quarry happens to be a lone champion, Kha'Zix can utilize the bonus damage from Taste Their Fear Taste Their Fear combined with the initial magic damage from Unseen Threat Unseen Threat to truly devastating effect.

Later in the match, Void Assault Void Assault allows Kha'Zix to safely and aggressively navigate team fights. After Leap leaping into combat, Kha'Zix can use his Void Assault ultimate to evade attacks while he picks apart vulnerable members of the enemy team.

If you find yourself falling behind, combining Evolved Active Camouflage Void Assault with Evolved Spike Racks Void Spike can give you increased durability in team fights and greater farming and poke potential while you catch up on gold. Tailoring your evolutions to address the challenges of a specific match-up can give you that extra edge you need to finish strong in a close match-up.
