Summoner Spells Back to Top

  • Hello guys, this is my first guide! Let's start!
  • Flash and ignite are the best summoner spells for Katarina. You can do a lot of fancy plays with flash and surprise your opponent when they don't expect it.

Masteries Back to Top

  • This is THE BEST Mastery page you can find for Kat. Some people prefer Deathfire Touch, but I think that Thunderlord's Decree is a choice.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    start with cloth and 4 pots when against an ad champion
    start with doran's shield when you are laning against a champion with a long range autoattack ex. oriana
    always take the warding totem for a free jump with your E+ward. there's no need to upgrade this, because it's like a sightstone now by its self.
    WARDS, WARDS, WARDS, when you back buy at least one pink ward. you can place it in the mid-lane bush or in another bush so the enemies won't find it.
    i almost always start with this item. it gives you 3 pots (which last longer thanks to the masteries) and its passive which is great for poking.
    best start against all ap matchups, gives you some extra ap in midgame. upgrade to mejai if u feel like doing so.

Core Items

    standard katarina build. when you are against an ap champ its better to buy the mr part of abyssal and then go straight for ludens, then finish abyssal. if you start dark seal you can even buy boots as your first item as it gives you that nice movespeed boost and 15 mpen which is really good in lane.

Situational Items

    if you have 3 kills before your first back, definately buy this.
    buy this if you are far behind from your lane. DO NOT URGRADE IT TO LIANDRY'S
    to stay alive :D
    buy this when you already have 5/6 items if the enemy team has a lot of cc or you are getting focused
    buy this instead of sorcerer's when you have a BIG problem with ap enemies ( especially fiddlesticks)
    Buy this if you need to be tanky and catch up opponents.
    buy it if you feel like it will be usefull for oneshots.
    a really good item on katarina. i would not recommend it if you are not ahead.

Just dodge her Q and E and combo her when she doesn't have her charm. Rush Abyssal.

ALWAYS dodge her Q, if she has he passive up, ask your jungler for help. Start with Corrupting Potion or Doran's Shield if you have Magic Resist runes.

You can let her low before level 4, then Flash+E+Q+W+Ignite and jump away. Stay behind your team in teamfights and wait till she wastes her stun. If you win her in lane, you win the game. Rush Abyssal. Start with Boots + 4 pots or Corrupting Potion

Dodge her Q and poke her with W+AA all the time. Rush Abyssal. If you win the laning phase you are good, but be careful in teamfights because she can burst you down easily.
