You can't get better summoners than these.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity Tree :

Fury_mastery_2016.png - Caitlyn is autoattack reliant, so fury is better than sorcery.

DES.png - Since Riot changed Double Edged to be the same for ranged champs and melee, ad carry champions should use it.

Vampirism_mastery_s3.png - Natural Talent gives flat stats now so its better.

oppressor.png - Oppressor is better. Bounty Hunter is good, but it's risky, if you fall behind with Oppressor you will deal more damage.

FOB.png - Caitlyn is autoattack reliant, so Fervor is the best of these three.

Cunning Tree :

savagery.png - Helps csing.

secret stash.png - Assassin is bad because you are constantly around your teammates, and Runic will not provide much. Biscuits will boost your regen early.

merciless.png - Caitlyn doesn't really need mana regen. Merciless is an amazing mastery which will allow her to deal even more damage to low health enemies

Dangerous_Game_mastery_2016.png - This mastery is great for ADCs, heal when you kill someone can help you survive.

Max Priority :

1. caitlynaceinthehole.png - Good ult for poke, or finisher.
2. caitlynyordletrap.png - Traps are simply OP. You can block an entire path with them, and the follow up Headshot is ridicilous. Getting 3 points into Q and than maxing W is the way I go.
3. caitlynpiltoverpeacemaker.png - There is no reason to max E second, this ability scales with AD.
4. caitlynentrapment.png - Cooldown decreases only, so max it last.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard

Core Items

    Never rush infinity, it's very inefficient without a crit item. Runaan's charges your headshot quickly.
    Long range headshots! Double attackspeed item is great for caitlyn, since she relies on autos and crits to deal damage. She will have 80% crit chance with Hurricane, IE and RFC.
    This is the only option for boots. Swiftness nerfed.

Situational Items

    Choose . Lord Dominiks if the enemies have tanks, or Mortal if they have healers.
    Lifesteal items. Bt raw damage and shield, QSS against CC.
    Great item if they focus you hard and you need to survive longer.
    against burst mages.
    TRIPLE ATTACKSPEED? I like to sell my boots for PD since the movespeed 2 attackspeed items provide, along with pd is 15%. Also makes you have 100% crit and the damage reduction passive is nice.
    If you are set far behind, youmuu's can boost your midgame, but if your whole team is doing well you better farm up for the standard build.

VS

Ashe

Medium

Ashe is a fairly easy lane, try to stay behind minions and poke her with caitlynpiltoverpeacemaker.pngs and caitlynpassive.pngs.

At level 6 she can setup ganks and screw you up with asheR.png, if you pay attention to her behavior you might expect a gank when she is overly aggressive.
You might need 3140.png if you can't dodge asheR.png.

VS

Draven

Hard

He deals A LOT OF DAMAGE with his Pen runes and items. His early game is amazing aswell he will screw you up if he is good. Try to caitlynyordletrap.png where his axes fall, and use caitlynentrapment.png+caitlynpiltoverpeacemaker.png if he tries to attack you.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

He has his long range low cd  ezrealmysticshot.png that outranges you poke. It's harder to control the lane against him, but you outscale.

VS

Jhin

Medium

Jhin's damage is too high, but you can control the lane against him especially with a hard CC support like 53.png412.png201.png because he is immobile. Put caitlynyordletrap.png when your support lands his CC. Try poking him when he is reloading.

VS

Jinx

Medium

Jinx is easy in lane, poke her hard and zone her from the minion wave. She outscales you, but Caitlyn's playstyle allows her to end games before Jinx can reach her crazy late game, by sieging towers and controlling objectives. caitlynyordletrap.png helps a lot here.

VS

Kalista

Easy
kalistaE.png Requires a few autos, but Caitlyn's range shouldn't allow that. Poke her with autos and Q. Placing caitlynyordletrap.png a lot can cause her to accidentally step on it, allowing you to chunk her.

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

Caitlyn can bully Kog so hard. But Kog outscales her. Kog is probably the best late champ.

VS

Lucian

Medium

Lucian is easy to poke in lane. They nerfed his lucianQ.png range, so he shouldn't be able to poke you through minions now. Tho with an engage supp he might kill you in an all in because he has strong dmg early as well. Also you outscale him.

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy

Her missfortunericochetshot.png is annoying in lane. Also be aware of her missfortunebullettime.png in teamfights. Try to poke her while not standing behind low health minions a lot.

VS

Sivir

Medium

In lane, she can block your caitlynyordletrap.png's which is annoying. She can also block your caitlynaceinthehole.png. Anyways your range is higher and you can kill her mostly.

VS

Tristana

Easy

Tristana is easy in lane. She basicly has no tools to deal with you early. Her midgame is crap and she can do nothing about it, while Caits caitlynyordletrap.png max makes her midgame stronger now. She outscales, but she can't really get to that point.

VS

Twitch

Medium

Easy target in lane. twitchQ.png is a problem, but its solved by buying a pink ward. His twitchR.png is another problem if he catches you 1v1 and he also outscales you.

VS

Vayne

Easy

Same as 29.png. Buy pink wards, and don't fight her 1v1.

Lane Phase Back to Top

Cait has one of the strongest lanes, outranging almost every champion. She can bully weak laners pretty hard, and she has a nice and deadly escape. Poke with your Q often in early levels, it does a lot of damage. A good way to win lane is to push them under tower and block the path with traps. That way you get free damage on them and the tower, while they are focused not to step on the trap and not to miss cs. Also if you are on the red side you can use the invisible trap which has it's own section in this guide.

Mid Game Back to Top

Mid Game Cait is pretty crap in terms of damage, she relies on the enemies to step on the traps for damage. But damage is not the only way the traps are amazing for, they are an amazing zoning tool. Putting 5 traps can block a whole path and will buy you more time to take an objective. The thing Cait can do well in the mid game is take objectives with your long range and trap zone.

Late Game Back to Top

She also outscales most of the ADCarries, her trap headshots do absolute retarded damage, in teamfights drop as many of them. Chances are in a big teamfight of 5v5 the enemies won't be able to even see the trap you placed and step on it. The 800 range headshots with Rapid Fire Cannon are also busted when you have that 80% crit chance because headshots scale with crit. Overall you need to kite and position well and focus the highest priority target that is close to you, for example 78.png is the target you can only reach and you attack her, but when 15.png comes close enough you switch to her. And don't use your Q in teamfights because it reduces your damage due to the cast time, so you might get some crits off during that cast time.

Invisible Trap Back to Top

I included Phylol's video for the Invisible Trap, he explains a lot for it.
