Abilities

Edit
Martial Poise
TARGET RANGE: 150 - 280
Martial Poise.png

Innate: Kalista's Basic Attack.png basic attack has unique properties:

  • Deals 90% AD physical damage.
  • Does not deal damage nor trigger On-hit icon.png on-hit effects if Kalista loses Sight icon.png sight of the target before it hits.
  • Has an Excessive Force 2.png uncancelable windup.
  • Kalista can switch targets during its windup.
  • Has its windup reduced by only 0.75% per Attack speed icon.png 1% bonus attack speed.
  • Makes Kalista Dash.png dash in the target direction after issuing a movement command during its windup or right after casting Pierce Pierce.
    • The distance increases based on the direction (in regards to her facing direction) she is dashing into, whether she has Tier 2 Boots and is entirely different from Pierce Pierce.
    • Kalista will be Knockdown icon.png knocked down by any Stun icon.png immobilizing crowd control during the dash.

Innate - Oathsworn Bond: Kalista begins the game with an exclusive Black Spear Black Spear.

 
   "The oath has been taken."

Info
  • Kalista shares having an unusual basic attack windup modifier with a few other champions.
  • Kalista also has the longest relative basic attack windup time of all champions, however this is offset by her high base attack speed and attack speed scaling.
  • The dash speed depends on Kalista's bonus attack speed.
  • The dash speed is affected by Movement speed icon.png multiplicative movement speed modifiers such as Slow icon.png slows.
    • Movement speed icon.png Additive movement speed modifiers do not affect it.
  • There are a total of 24 different dash ranges based on direction, Boots and Pierce Pierce being cast
  • Kalista will attempt to attack her target again at the end of the dash, allowing the player to kite with only movement commands as long as they remain in attack range.
  • Attack move click checks for targets in brief intervals, but only while Kalista is not in a dash, resulting in lost DPS if it is used to automatically dash.

COOLDOWN: 14 / 12.5 / 11 / 9.5 / 8
Rend.png

Passive: Kalista's basic attacks On-hit icon.png on-hit and Pierce Pierce lodge a spear into their target, applying a Rend stack for 4 seconds, which stacks up to 254 times. The duration refreshes on subsequent attacks and hits of Pierce Pierce.

Active: Kalista rips all lodged spears from valid nearby enemies, consuming all of their stacks to deal them physical damage and Slow icon.png slow them for 2 seconds. Each additional spear on the target deals reduced damage. Rend deals 50% reduced damage against epic Monster icon.png monsters.

A nearby enemy with a Rend stack is required to cast this ability.

Rend can be used during the dash of Martial Poise Martial Poise and the cast time of Pierce Pierce. In-flight spears and Pierce Pierce if in cast will be empowered to apply Rend's effects to their targets. These empowered spears can also trigger Rend's refund.

Info
  • Rend at maximum stacks will deal a total of 2550 / 3572 / 4847 / 6375 / 8156 (+ 5069.4 / 6068.244 / 7016.994 / 7965.744 / 8914.494% AD) physical damage.

EFFECT RADIUS: 1100
CAST TIME: none
COST: 100 mana
COOLDOWN: 150 / 120 / 90
Fate's Call.png

Active: Kalista invokes her tether tether to retrieve her Oathsworn, pulling them to her over 1 second and Remove Scurvy.png cleansing them from all Stun icon.png crowd control. The Oathsworn is rendered Playful.png untargetable and Cosmic Radiance.png invulnerable for up to 4 seconds, during which they are held by Kalista.

The Oathsworn can Dash.png dash with Unstoppable icon.png displacement immunity to a target location during this time, and automatically does so in front of Kalista at the end of the duration, ending Fate's Call's effects. The dash will prematurely end upon colliding with an enemy Champion icon.png champion, Airborne icon.png knocking up all surrounding enemies for a duration and landing the Oathsworn at their Range icon.png basic attack range relative to the target collided with.

Knockup Duration:
1.5 / 1.75 / 2

The Oathsworn must be nearby to cast this ability. The Oathsworn Hallucinate.png vanishes upon retrieval until dash completion, and is also Silence icon.png silenced and unable to perform movement or attack commands during the entire effect.

 
   "They shall not have you."
