Quick Access


Kurenai is my favorite Hyper and is both Heavy DMG dealer and a great flanker. Her high mobility lets her do crazy dives and make big plays for her team.

Pros / Cons

+ Great Flanker

+ High Mobility

+ Easy to get picks on isolated targets

+ High burst damage

- Ultimate easily interrupted

- Very vulnerable when skills are on cooldown

- High mana consumption

Item Build

  • Slaughterer's Gaiters

    Life Steal and Def Penetration is excellent on assassins.

  • Grasp of Death

    This is the best unique item for Kurenai, and it's a must have for any Kurenai build.

  • Ironsand Kunai

    Ironsand Kunai is another good unique for Kurenai, the slow + 50% DMG on Kunai instead of 70% it has, makes it easier for you to gank or chase down someone.

  • Dragon's Bane

    Dragon's bane has great base stats, and is great for Critical Rate builds.

  • Assassin's Katar

    Similar to dragon's bane, Assassin's Katar has great stats, and is a good complement for the Critical Rate Build.

  • Red Hyper Ring

    I love this one, Good stats + 400HP shield is always helpful.

  • Total Base Stats
  • Attack + 170
    Life Steal + 20%
    Defense Penetration + 20
    Critical Strike + 90%
    Movement Speed + 100
    Movement Speed + 5%
    Mana Regen + 30

Skill breakdown

  • Stealth Assassin

    Kurenai isolates and terrorizes enemy hypers who have no allies around them, reducing their defenses and increasing the damage taken.

  • Shuriken Sweep

    Swings her windmill shuriken to dice up nearby enemies and do damage. Use this skill after using your ult

  • Vicious Wind

    Using Vicious Wind while grounded is much less effective and deals less damage than using it in the air, so try to use it in air while jumping.

  • Kitsune Leap

    Kitsune Leap makes Kurenai charge in the direction pressed, if you press the skill key again you can stun nearby enemies. You can use Kitsune Leap as an escape tool, or you can Combo with Shadow Step to make a CC chain. See example here.

  • Shadow Step

    Kurenai slips into stealth to set up a brutal kill. While stealthed, she has increased movement speed and her regular attack is replaced with Ambush. Remember that while you are shrouded, you are not totally invisible. Using this skill allows you to approach enemies easier, as you're much harder to see.

  • Black Claw

    Kurenai grabs all nearby enemies and does damage, and then leaps skyward with them to smash them in to the ground as hard as she can. You can combo with this move by using Shadow Step > Kitsune Leap > Black Claw. You can find a video example below.
    • Kurenai Combos

      This one is the Standard Kurenai Combo and it's pretty easy to do. See here.

    • You have to watch your map before you try out this one, this one works well when there's a fight going on and the enemy is fighting above you. Ladder Combo 1: See here.

    • I usually don't use this one because is easy for the enemies to see you coming down, but you can use it when u are flanking. Ladder Combo 2: here.

    • Make sure you watch your map before trying this, if you plan on diving make sure to use Red Hyper Ring. Halfscreen Combo: here.

    • If you fail to use your CC in the middle of a fight, you're dead.
