    So, many people say that depends on the enemy team but which form do you think it's the best overall? And why?

    i think the shadow assassin form is better, because of mobility

    I don't play Kayn, but Shadow Assassin looks best :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I know you don't want this answer, but it depends on the situation. Not from just enemy team, but from your team as well. If you need another tankish bruiser than Darkin is the way to go. His sustain is pretty high as long as still doing some decent damage. If instead your team needs some more instant damage Shadow Assassin is the form to take. Though to really take advantage of SA you need to know how to position yourself.

    exactly, however i feel like if the enemy has tons of cc or is just generally super tanky i feel like SA is a bad pick. but he can be quite like rengar lategame who just oneshits the carry in 0,1 sec.

    There are ways to get around CC. Plus as an assassin, you shouldn't be leading the charge into fights. You need to be on the sidelines of the fight and wait until the fight is kind of started to make your move.

    true dat, however a good support or peeler will always try to keep on spell atleast to keep assassins like u off their carry :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Well if you are really worried about CC, just get a QSS or EoN early. Plus with your ult you become untargetable.

    If the enemy team has a tank or two then red form is definitely better.

    Darkin form is way better. His ult gets perfect recovering almost half of your HP, great to tower dive or change a fight. Plus you get a knock up!

    Shadow assassin can be such a good mid lane assassin aswell, but Rhaast form can carry a whole teamfight all alone

    Both are good.

    Shadow Assassin has a lot of mobility and can oneshot the ADC instantly while still be able to get away from the enemies.
    I build Shadow Assassin: Dusk Blade, Ghostblade, Warrior: Chilling Smite (Blue), Guardian Angel, Death's Dance, Ninja Tabi.

    Thunderlords, Seals of Armor 9x, Lethality Marks 9x, Magic Resist Glyphs Flat 3x + Magic Resist Scaling 6x. Attack Damage Quints 3x

    Darkin seems better for longer fights, where you build bruiser and are able to face tanks without problems basically.
    Darkin: Cinderhulk: Challenging Smite (Red), Titanic Hydra, Deadman's Plate, Spirit Visage, Sterak's Gage, Ninja Tabi.

    Courage of the Collosus, Armor Seals 9x, Magic Resist Glyphs Scaling 9x, Attack Damage Marks 9x + Quints 3x.

    Your ult heals you in Darkin form, so you should be fine with this.

    hes not a very tanky champ in the beginning. unless your like highly ahead, ur just gonna be glass cannon with assassin form; just too squishy to be viable.

    I prefer the shadow form because it looks cooler then the darkin one (just my opinion :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:)

    yo guess that its better darkin becuz has better sustain and cc, the assasin one its just more dmg, but the darkin with the ult can reengage very easy making a good pick to the comp and jungler in general
