Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    When facing a skill shot dependig champ i.e Cass, Lux, Syndra.
    Start this when you are not starting cloth or boots. Recomended in most match ups.
    Against AD match ups: Zed, Talon, Riven

Core Items

    Rush either depending on the match up.
    You want this ASAP it's your early burst that should help you snowball.
    If you started dark seal and got a lead you should finish Mejai's as the movement speed and AP it gives is really good.
    This is how your final build should look like in a game where you snowballed and mejai's was usefull (over 15 stacks most of the game)
    When in a tough game and you get focused a lot.

Situational Items

P.S: Don't rush GA finish it as a last item.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Not really a hard match up. Her  Q will make it hard for you to farm and charm can stop your ult and help her to combo you but with a little practise both can be dodged with shunpo or just walking sideways. Start boots but if you are sure about dodging her skillshots you can start dark seal.

VS

Akali

Medium

Medium match up. Lane phase should be a farm fest she can't kill you because she doesn't have her gap closer untill 6 and you really can't kill her because your damage isn't all that great untill 6. You can try to poke her down with Q. Who ever get's the first kill on their lane opponent will pretty much win the lane after that so try not to give her any kills while on lane.

VS

Anivia

Hard

I rarely find Anivia but it's a pain lane. Her Q has a longer range than yours and if she hits you you are not only stunned but her E will deal double dmg to you. Her egg stops your passive pretty good. Start boots.

VS

Annie

Medium

The match up depends on the Annie her stun is easy to charge up and her burst is very good at 6 so try to harass her while it's down.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Medium

Hard match up at start gets easier after a few levels. He can't do anything to you when you jump on him so try and abuse that. His roams are easier with his E. At 6 his combo is very strong so be careful.

VS

Azir

Medium

Annoying match up at all times. He can poke you while on lane with his W>Q and he outscales you. Your pick potential and roams are better so use it to your advantage.

VS

Brand

Hard

His poke is really good and if he catches you with his combo you pretty much have to go back. Try poking him with Q while his pillar is down, start boots.

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

All in all should be easy lane for Kata at 6 you can all in her but be careful for her ult. Start with boots to dodge her Q's. If you get behind start roaming.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Really hard match up. He can heal most of the damage you do to him. He can stop your ult with Q and W and his ult does a lot of true damage which scales with his AP. He will get tanky the later the game goes but his team fight presence is really low.

VS

Diana

Medium

Most people would say that Diana is Kata's best counter. The match up is tricky, try comboing her with Q>W and not Q>E>W as she can just dianaE.png you and probably kill you. Her burst at lvl 6 is really good so be careful of that. In team fights you should have a bigger impact.

VS

Ekko

Medium

Match up depends on how good the Ekko is. His W and R make him hard to kill and he can jump on you pretty easy with E. Whenever you get him low after level 6 and you think he is about to ult ignite him to reduce the healing. Try killing him when his ult is down.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

AP Ez is an annoying lane. You probably won't be able to kill him because of his E and the damage he deals with W is quite annoying as well. Start boots and try to roam as much as possible your team fights are better.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Hard

Probably the best counter to Kata on mid. Even if he isn't seen mid that much there are still some players that do. The silence and the fear stop your ult and drain deals a lot of dmg play carefully. His team fights are as good as yours.

VS

Fizz

Medium

Pretty much same as akali only he can actually kill you pre 6. Wait for him to use his E then try to poke, harrass or kill him.

VS

Galio

Medium

Hard to impossible to kill. His spells are predictable but fast and he has mana problems so he shouldn't be able to kill you some early magic pen will help later the game goes.

VS

Gangplank

Medium

Barrels hurt a lot so does his Q poke. If he gets you low after 6 be careful of his ult as it can do enough damage when with thunderlords to kill you before you can react.

VS

Gragas

Medium

Rarely sees play mid after the changes but none the less annoying. He can still stop your ult with 2 of his spells and his burst is still good. Try dodging the barrels in lane and you should be able to survive till 6 and ask your jungler for  ganks.

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

Heimer is an easy lane for Kata. Stay back and try to farm under tower. Use Q+W to destroy his turrets and try to all in him at lvl 6.

VS

Jayce

Hard

Kat has a tough time against poke champs and Jayce is one of them. He can also jump on you and stop your ult when in melee form. Roam a lot and try to farm safely untill you get 6.

VS

Karma

Medium

A support that sometimes sees play on mid. Karma is actually pretty strong vs Kata true she can't stop your ult but her Q and W do good dmg while her shield will protect her from most of your harrass.

VS

Karthus

Easy

Fairly easy lane. He'll try to farm during laning phase so try to harass him when he tries to last hit with Q. You can kill him at 6. Try going Zhonya's as a third item for his ult.

VS

Kassadin

Hard

Medium to hard match up. His shield is kinda annoying and he can stop or run away from your ult. He will most probably roam a lot so try to follow him. Ask for ganks pre 6 while he has no escape.

VS

Katarina

Medium

Let the better Kat win.

VS

Kayle

Medium

Kayle's kit is pretty much made for countering assassins. Before she get's her  3115_32.png there is a 4-5 second window in which her E is on cooldown try poking her with your Q or even Q>E (on minion)>W and make sure the W hits her so you can deal the bonus dmg from your Q and get the movement speed. You can't kill her at 6 alone as she will just ult herself and kill you so ask your jungler for help.

VS

Kennen

Hard

Quite the annoying match up. His whole kit counters you as he has poke, a stun, an escape and an AoE ult which at times is better than Kat's.

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

Another poke match up. The good thing here is that Kog'Maw is easily abuseable as he is very squishy at start. You can burst him down quite easy at 6. Play carefully around his poke as it does hurt.

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

Even though her silence is gone, the burst is still there. She can still take half of your hp at lvl 2-3 so try to shunpo whever you see her use her chain. But as i said her silence is gone so at 6 you can try to kill her (however she can just escape with W).

VS

Lissandra

Hard

Pretty hard match up for Kata. Even if you stay behind your minions she can still hit you with Q, her W stops you from shunpoing and even if you do she has E to catch up and let's not forget she can ult either you or herself whenever you ult so that's pretty bad too. Try to roam and get kills.

VS

Lux

Medium

Medium lane at start then becomes easy. Lux in the start of the game is kinda like ezreal mid. She can dmg you but you pretty much can't dmg her. Her E's range is pretty big so try dodging with shunpo. Once you get to level 5 start harassing her so you can all in her at 6. If she get's 6 faster than you try not to get caught by her Q or you will most likely die. In team fights she is very immobile so try to kill her first.

VS

Malzahar

Hard

This guy I call the counter to all assassins. His Q's range is pretty big and the silence isn't fun as well, his E's dmg is pretty good and you never know if it's going to jump from your minion to you, his passive is really annoying, the voidlings do good dmg and can tank the turret for him and then there's his ult, which if used correctly can kill you whenever you jump to him. The good news is his mana costs are very high so if he starts spamming spells he will go OOM very fast try harassing him when he does. If he has no mana at 6 all in him.

VS

Mordekaiser

Medium

As most Katarina match ups you have to stay back and try farming under your turret. All his spells (apart from his ult) are AoE. His E's dmg is pretty good so don't let him hit you with it too much, his shield will absorb a lot of your damage so harassing him might not work very well at start. Try to get your jungler to gank he has no escape and his shield won't be able to absorb damage from 2 sources.

VS

Morgana

Easy

Pretty much one of the easiest lanes you can get. Her Q is too slow and only hits 1 target so you either have to stay behind your minions or just walk sideways, unless she maxes her shield it's pretty useless during the lane phase and her W is easily avoidable her ult takes 3 sec to stun you which is the same duration as the full channel of your ult.

VS

Nidalee

Easy

Another champ that is rarely seen mid nowadays but even if she is it's an easy matchup. Just stay behind your minions and poke her with Q as it's range is higher than her auto attack range. Avoid her traps as they will trigger her passive and if you are low on hp for some reason she will be able to burst you down. At 6 you can all in her she can't stop your ult and her escape isn't big enough to get out of your ult range.

VS

Orianna

Medium

This is a highly skilled matchup. Her aa's hurt a lot. She can poke you down with the ball but with boots and Shunpo you can try to avoid it. At 6 you both can all in one another. She has more power due to the fact that her ult stops yours.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

Can be found mid sometimes and when he is it's very very very annoying. He can Q spam for days and all in you at lvl 3-4. You can't all in him at 6 because he will just stun you and most probably kill you. Ask your jungler to camp the lane and try to not get caught as Pantheon is really good at setting up gank.

VS

Riven

Hard

Another hard matchup. Riven is a pain to lane against. You can't really try to farm as her Q and W will destroy you, you can't really poke her as her E has a really low cooldown and scales with her AD. She can all in you at 6 so play carefully rush Zhonya.

VS

Ryze

Medium

Seen sometimes on mid. You should be able to win this matchup  early in the 1v1 his rune prison (W) won't stop your ult and your combo is better than his at 6. Try to poke him while laning your Q range is slightly bigger than his so try poking at max range and then going back as his Q deals way more dmg. Late game he will be very strong so try to end quickly.

VS

Sona

Medium

Same as Kog'Maw. Her poke hurts but she is very squishy. She can stop your ult at 6 but if you poke her enough she shouldn't have time to react if you all in her at 6.

VS

Swain

Medium

Another ryze type matchup. His slow and E have a lower range than your Q but his root's range is way longer than your Q's so be ready to shunpo whenever you see him use it. At 6 your ult reduces the healing he get's from his, his damage is pretty high however so be careful.

VS

Syndra

Medium

Somewhere between medium and hard. All of her spells have a bigger range than your Q and her Q deals more dmg than yours so try poking her when she used it to farm. At 6 she can burst you down faster than you can burst her and even if she doesn't she can stop your ult with her E.

VS

Taliyah

Medium

A weaker poke match up which Kat can actually win. Her Q does a lot of damage so walk away from her when she uses it. Make sure to always dodge her W>E combo as it hurts a lot. Her roams are better thx to her R but your teamfight damage should be better.

VS

Talon

Medium

Try and poke with Q and jump away with E as soon as he jumps on you. His burst is really good. At 6 you can all in him without a problem but be careful as he can do the same to you.

VS

Teemo

Easy

Easy matchup. Poke him with your Q as his aa range and Q range are way lower than yours. All in him at lvl 6 he can't stop your ult. Buy pink wards for the shrooms.

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

Somewhere between medium and Easy. He has 1 way of stopping your ult which pretty baitable and his Q easily dodgable with boots. His lvl 6 is slightly better as he can just teleport to any lane he wants. This game pretty much shows the lane perfectly. Search AHQ vs SSW worlds 2014 D3G3

VS

Varus

Medium

Same as anyother poke match up. Dodge his Q and try to all in him at 6.

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

4 skillshots to dodge all of which hurt. He needs his W to farm but he will also use it to poke you. If he gets 3 stacks of his passive on you at 6 his ult will do true damage so be careful.

VS

Viktor

Hard

Hard match up to say the least. All of his spells do a lot of damage and he can poke you without any problems. Jumping on him isn't a good idea either because of his W. His teamfighting is as good as yours so play very carefully.

VS

Vladimir

Hard

Very hard to be killed as his empowered Q heals him for his missing health. He can negate your ult's damage with his W. Will get tanky and outscale you the later the game goes.

VS

Wukong

Medium

Seen him a few times on mid. Early on he can be poked with Q>W but his damage is really high too. Make sure to not waste your combo on his clone. After 6 his damage becomes way higher than yours so try to get a lead pre 6.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

How hard the match up is depends on the Yasuo player. He can windwall your Q and R and is a bit more mobile than you. Make sure to dodge his tornado. You can max W here if he plays too close to you. Try to remove his shield whenever possible.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

Squishy but with a lot of poke. Make sure to dodge his Q and dont stay near your minions. His W can stop your ult and his ult does a lot of damage.

VS

Zilean

Medium

Doesn't see a lot of mid play, but anyways his bombs do a lot of damage and his ult is really strong against you as it stops your resets. Try poking him a lot while making sure to dodge the bombs.
