Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png For safety (ganks, focus in teamfights) And for Extra Mobility (More easy to flash, Shunpo and take a reset) or (Flash, Shunpo to a ward, Q, Ignite)

14.pngMore killing potential, faster resets in teamfights.
21.pngYou should pick barrier when they have high burst champions like Malzahar, Zed.
3.pngIts a viable option to exhaust your opponent and use your ult. In my opinion is better to take Ignite.

VS

Akali

Medium

Medium -  Hard lane... she burst you after level 6... just try to farm and ask your jungler for help... you should build 1057_64.png early to survive akali in the lane. after that you can build a3001_64.png and don't forget to buy 2003_64.png for sustain


Tips: always harrass with Q. Max Q.
After Akali got the hextexch revolver = tons of sustain.

VS

Anivia

Medium

Skill matchup... use your shunpo when anivia throws your Q... After 6 Anivia can easily burst you with R+E Combo. In the laning phase try to poke her a lot with bouncing blades and W, save your shunpo for her stun (Q).

VS

Annie

Hard

OMFG GG.... Annie is so OP vs Kat. just farm, farm, farm in your tower and ask for a gank.

well.. Annie is a very squishy champion (even if she build RoA) you have some advantage because Kat is manaless.

I like to build Abyssals + Haunting Guise for HP, MR so i can survive Annie's Burst.

Annie has no escapes = easy gank.

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

Skill Matchup, Cass early can burst you with the Q+E+E+E. Always try to dodge her Q with shunpo and i always  max Q vs her.


Good cass players = never misses their Q and that means a free harrass for them. 
Cassiopeia is a very agressive champion and pusher, she is very easy to gank (no escapes)

Consider building 3136_32.png1057_32.png

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Skill matchup, if you dodge every cho skill you win the lane. but be carefull because cho ult is very powerful.

VS

Diana

Medium

THIS BITCH AGAIN...

Okay first get early 1057_64.png . Always try to dodge her Q with Shunpo.

Try to bait her E so you can ult for free.  
i highly recommend mov speed runes vs Diana (for a better Q dodge)

VS

Elise

Medium

Skill matchup, you can dodge her stun but after that she can ignore your ult damage with rappel.


Elise mid is very rare in season 4. she is very mana hungry and you can take advantage of that. build an early Negatron Cloak. 1057_32.png

VS

Evelynn

Medium

Skill Matchup: She don't have any CC for your ultimate, but she can spam Q and E like a bitch... Also bait Eve to use her W so she can't escape.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

Skill matchup, dodge Ezreal skillshots with Shunpo.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium

G_G.... in laning phase you are fucked up... but if he is jungler make sure you build tenacity boots.


Max Q, JUST *FARM*  you CAN'T win a TRADE vs FID.
The only good thing is: Fiddle is super squishy and his mana pool is very low. Kat don't have so that's your advantage.

Build Abyssal and go for Tanky Kat build. (Rylais, Tenacity, Sunfire Cape, Etc)

VS

Fizz

Medium

Skill matchup, Fizz is a high burst champ, be aware of his W+Q+E combo. try to dodge his ult with shunpo

VS

Gragas

Medium

Skill matchup, you can dodge his Q. But if he Body Slam +Ult, RIP KATARINA.

VS

Jayce

Medium

SKILL MATCHUP, BUILD SEEKERS ARMGUARD AS 1ST ITEM, WHEN HE IS IN THE HAMMER MODE AND HE SWITCH TO THE GUN, YOU CAN COMBO HIM AND GET A FREE ULT BECAUSE HE DON'T HAVE THE CC

VS

Karma

Medium

VS

Karthus

Easy

lol... dodge Q, dodge Q, shunpo R = GG

VS

Kassadin

Medium

Build 3001_64.png and 3265_64.png  and ask your jungler for help

I max Q vs Kass.

VS

Kayle

Hard

Skill Matchup, kayle have heal, burst, and the stupid ultimate.

VS

Kennen

VS

Nidalee

Medium

VS

Orianna

Hard

his W stuns you... his ult silence you + tons of damage... build tenacity boots and ask your jungler for help... Max Q

Tips n' Tricks Back to Top

Smartcast: You should try smartcast with kat, you can act faster, get kills fasters, etc!


Smartcast Items (Like wards): Usefull trick, you can ward jump faster with pressing a button and Shunpo.
Pro's like voyboy use these tricks to juke the enemies and bait them to the turret in this video:

Who i am? Back to Top

Hello my name is Luis and i'm currently 20 years old, im from Dominican Republic and have been played LoL for 2 years.

My favorite champion is Katarina because she is fun to play, easy to learn but hard to master.
I'm in Diamond Tier in League Of Legends Latin America North Server.

I don't stream regularly but here is my twitch page: http://www.twitch.tv/coqua

Katarina Early Game Back to Top

1) Focus on FARMING: farming is the best way to get gold in the game.

2) Try to poke your enemy with your abilities: You can use your Bouncing Blades and your Sinister Steel.
3) Save Shunpo for ganks. NEVER shunpo on your enemy if you don't have a ward in your lane.
4) Buy Wards for safety and for vision: You can use ward jump for escape,juke, chase an enemy and get a kill.

Katarina Mid Game Back to Top

This is where Katarina shines... 


1) Never initiate a teamfight. Katarina is very squishy and you are building her as a glass cannon (High Damage Output)
2) Learn to positionate yourself in a teamfight, always stay back, kat is the main focus.
3) You can enter the teamfight when you secure a reset (You can Shunpo back to your allies or keep fighting)
4) Everytime you get a reset make sure you spam your abilities. Repeat your combo everytime you get an assist/kill
5) Death Lotus has a very short Cooldown, you can use it to harrass your Opponent in Laning Phase
6) Every 4 Assist you have your ultimate again, if you have CDR Items you can get your ultimate with 2 assist (This is awesome)
7) Focus AD Carries and AP Carries, you are an Assasin.

Katarina Late Game Back to Top

The same as Mid Game, remember to focus the ADC and the APC.
