Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash heal very standard

Only run cleanse if the enemy team is MASSIVE on CC.
Heal is your best option. 

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

In ferocity i prefer to take fresh blood instead of feast because you take warlords as your keystone, so you don't need as much life steal. Also it helps you poke out enemies in the laning phase early and accumulate a cs lead.


Battle trance is still being tested, it has potential to be really good, but because of your high range, double edged sword gives you 5% extra damage without much risk.

3 points in your q early on, then max your traps. 


Your q is mostly used for a little bit of trading damage and wave clear. Towards a certain point in the game your q does less damage then your AA's, so you lose damage casting it. Your traps scale super well into the mid and late game.

Because of Caitlyns dip in power throughout the mid game she can be weaker than other ad's. Her traps help make her more relevant in teamfights etc. Not to mention being able to trap off an entire lane is just OP :3

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    Double crit is important. You need the dps. You take warlords so that you dont need to build lifesteal in your build.

Situational Items

    Bloodthirster if the enemy team doesnt have a strong frontline. Mortal reminder if they have a lot of healing (swain, soraka, sona) qss if they have a lot of CC thats dangerous (lux, morg) Maw if they have a lot of AP damage or if you are in danger of a one shot (orianna, leblanc)

VS

Ashe

Medium

Make sure to trap off a section of your lane so that when she arrows she isnt able to follow up (because her and her allies step on traps)


Also try to dodge her enchantedcrystalarrow.png with your caitlynentrapment.png 
If she misses her arrow its pretty easy for you to beat her up

VS

Bard

Medium

Just be careful of gank opportunities. Your caitlynentrapment.png is not a very reliable escape method, especially not against someone who has so many ways of locking you down.

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

dont get grabbed

max your traps to make it so he cant pass a certain point in the lane
freeze the lane close to your tower

VS

Braum

Easy

just keep poking him, melee supports (minus ali) struggle to all in cait because of how far back she is

VS

Draven

Medium

probably just going to be a farm lane, poke him if you can but his all in damage is 10000x higher than yours. 


Wait for teamfights where you can hit him from a long way away.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

shove him under tower and poke away :)

VS

Janna

Easy

janna doesnt have kill pressure, most likely will be a farming lane (which bodes well for cait)

VS

Jhin

Easy

shove him under tower, set up a trap line, make it so all his shots have to be focused on minions

VS

Jinx

Medium

you beat her in lane, but she has higher burst and all in damage, and she snowballs harder than you, so you need to beat her down during laning phase

VS

Kalista

Easy

kalista isnt very strong right now :3

VS

Karma

Medium

just try to avoid her poke and you will be fine. Karma only has kill pressure if she can reach you, so keep as far away as possible

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

poke him down, kog isnt very strong atm, beware of his all in damage,

VS

Leona

Hard

might be worth bringing a morgana support (or a janna) to help protect you.

Your caitlynentrapment.png wont be good enough to save you from a leona engage. 

VS

Lucian

Easy

poke him, if he ever dashes into you, use your caitlynentrapment.png caitlynpiltoverpeacemaker.png combo to distance yourself, get good damage, and then keep auto attacking him.


Just try not to get all in'd level 2

VS

Lulu

Medium

Lulu can be passive or aggressive, the more aggressive the better.

Let her push and then freeze the wave close to your tower.
Because of her small range she wont be able to harass you very well without using her lulue.pngluluq.png combo which costs a lot of mana 

VS

Miss Fortune

Hard

she might ass pound you in laning phase, best to bring a healer (nami) to help you survive the missfortunericochetshot.png damage

VS

Morgana

Medium

as long as you dont use your caitlynentrapment.png forward you should be safe. A qss after 2 items will be important.

All depends on how well the morg can hit her bind.

VS

Nami

Medium

nami can heal your poke and has good damage herself, just keep your distance from her and farm up

VS

Nautilus

Hard

like leona, his cc is to much for you, try to bring someone who can keep you safe against him.

VS

Sivir

Easy

her range is tiny,

this will be about who can shove faster. If she is winning, just max your traps to stop her from ramming you under tower 

VS

Sona

Medium

same as nami, heals to heal your poke and she has a high amount of damage in the early game. Probably best to avoid her and farm up

VS

Soraka

Easy

just farm, unlikely to get any kills

VS

Taric

Easy

if he ever tries to dazzle you, just caitlynentrapment.png away and you're safe :)

set up a trap line along your tower so if he tries to dive you with his taricr.png he has to step on traps and you have time to run away.

VS

Thresh

Medium

if he is good with hooks, you will probably lose, if you can dodge them, you will probably win

If he misses a threshq.png immediately step up and punish him 

VS

Tristana

Easy

you're a better version of tristana, beware her lv 6 burst with her tristanae.pngtristanar.png combo

VS

Twitch

Hard

always stay with a support, twitch is very strong and will be looking to pick you off.

Try to bully him in lane, but dont all in him, his twitchexpunge.png does a suprisingly high amount of damage with the new fervor

VS

Varus

Medium

try to poke him down so he cant all in you with his varusr.png

Set up a defensive trap line so his all in becomes a lot less scary

VS

Vayne

Easy

bully her in lane, lock her down in teamfights. 

If you start to lose the lane call jungle assistance immediately. If she snowballs on you, you're done for :c

VS

Zilean

Easy

dodge the bombs, place traps underneath whoever he ults :)

VS

Zyra

Hard

bring a healer with you (nami) or a shielder (janna) to help you survive this lane. Zyra's poke is HELL, and she will most likely outmatch you 1v2 :3 (i fucking hate zyra)

Supports for Caitlyn? Back to Top

S Tier:


Nami: You can take excellent trades with her e and w,. She keeps you safe and lets you dps more. She can be aggressive or defensive (same with you) depending on what you need. Also she has good damage to control the lane early.

Janna: Her shield plus your auto attacks early game really sting. She helps you control the lane as well. Janna more defensive than Nami, so less lane control, but she can help you survive longer.

A Tier: 

Zyra: Your poke is DISGUSTING!!! You are in danger of being camped, because you dont really have any defensive capabilities. This lane is total cancer tho :/

Moragana: Trap + bind combo almost always means someone dies. A morgana plus a cait makes it hell to teamfight for your enemies (they slowed from morgana ult and constantly running into traps)

B Tier: 

Thresh: Mostly depends on the thresh player, but he's an all around solid support. He can peel for her, and pressure through his hooks. 

Lulu: She buffs you up so you are an unkillable critting machine, only problem is she can struggle in the lane, so its sometimes awkward to pair her with cait


MOST SUPPORTS WORK WELL WITH CAITLYN :) THATS THE BEAUTY OF HER
