Summoner Spells Back to Top

All ways take flash!


4.pngThis sets up kills, let's you escape bad spots, it just does everything. (100% Take)
14.pngThis is a must needed spell try to take it 100% of the time. (95% Take)
3.pngIf you feel you have enough damage to secure a kill and to null your lane opponents damage for a bit works well vs-ing a zed for example. (5% Take)

Masteries Back to Top

Tunderlords is a 90% take in my opinion kat is a burst champion and this helps with that, You can take death fire and poke in lane i just have never used it and i don't see why someone would take it, That being said i do see some people taking it and it looks like it works well.

Ok so this won't be done anytime soon as i want to go and play the new kat a lot befor i can say what a good way to play her is, I will put my THOUGHTS here for now as i have no yet had the time to play her.

bouncingblades.png - I'm guessing you still max Q as its you only poke in lane, befor you could take W to spam on some people but as it now deals no damage Q max would be the best, Unless you looking for better cd timers on you other moves.

killerinstinct.png - I'm going to try maxing this 2nd and see how i like it, reason being its movement speed and cd, maxing it would give you more damage (dagger drops on ground when used) and movement to dodge shit in lane or run away, because ward hoping has been removed i'm hoping this can be the new get away. 

shadowstep.png - 3rd Max at the moment depending on how i like W, I just feel like w gives more to help you live and gives you more damage then shunpo. 

deathlotus.png - Max like normal.

Move Combo Now ? 

As i said i have not played kat yet so i have no idea what would be a nice combo now, but by looking at everything i'm guessing something like this?

W>Q>E>R>E>W -  This is my safe ingage, W to leave a dagger on the ground be for going in as a get away incase of gank or something else, Q Them or the minions and then E onto THEM or the dagger if there near it, Spin like hell and get out with E & W.

Q>E>W>R>E>W - All in? Like old one i guess but Your Q depends if you win the fight or not if it lands on the ground near them go in use W & R get out of r and try and grab W for a bit more dmg then chase them down with e and W more.


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Take this vs ad please, you will get shit on other wise.
    I take this 80% of the time now.

Core Items

    My 3 main items i normally take unless vs-ing a ad mid or ap burst mid. Luidans First unless you need health then 1st tier boots and then ry.
    Rab's after the 3 main then the other depend on the team comp and there team damage.

Situational Items

    Vs very ap heavy/nukey champs.
    Don't feel like dying? or want anyone to get away? Here you go!
    :)
    Full build should look something like this.
3285.png - Get this as your 1st/2nd item if your doing well in lane.
3146.png-  Good item to get as you're 2nd one now.
3020.png - Depends when you finish this.
3157.png - This will be your 1st/2nd item depending on your lane opponent 
3089.png - 3rd item to get.
3135.png - 4th item unless the person your vs-ing builds a 3001.png.
3116.png - I get this 2nd or even first now, I love the slow and health. The slow also kicks ass when getting daggers off of the ground.

VS

Ahri

Hard
Start: 1001.pngand2003.png.

bouncingblades.png  Farm with this, try to poke and farm at the same time.

Don't get taunted or you will die, Save shunpo all times to dodge her taunt unless she has used it and u can do a sneaky trade.

At 6 run and hide under tower and cry. Make sure she does not roam if you playing really safe and she can't kill you, she will roam to get kills instead.

VS

Akali

Medium

Start killerinstinct.png and try to spam this on her, If you think that's a bit scary start bouncingblades.png and wait lvl 2 to trade.


At 6 you should be able to kill (right away) once she gets some charges on her ulty it's a different story. I guess it upto skill level from her on out and items builds.

VS

Anivia

Hard

Anivia is kinda hard to vs you can beat her early game, dodge her q with you shunpo and try and trade.

VS

Annie

Medium

Depends on how good the Annie player is really, You should be able to trade pre level 6 if she is not playing safe, this is your time to win lane try to kill her or deny her CS. At 6 she can just one shot you.

VS

Azir

Hard

This dude is a pain in the ass for me, Don't know about others but he is a hard fucker to win vsing.


Just play safe farm up and wait for ganks, If your jungle does nothing just roam a lot.

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

Cass is a fun champ to vs, All you need to do is dodge her poison then you can go all in on her (after 6) Do be careful of her ult but its really simple to dodge/turn from and she is very squishy so you should be able to delete her be for she has time to set it off.


I would be maxing your W first unless she is punishing you a lot then you would want to max your Q and poke, When she miss's her poison pools do your q,e,w combo then leg it.

Welcome!

Timing!


Timing is a VERY big thing on Katarina, What make's a good Katarina player is there timing, knowing when you go in for a kill, knowing when you get out after a kill, knowing when you hour glass timing is important!

Kills.

-When to kill someone, you need to learn when someone might be baiting you into a death trap or something similar, When there cc is up, If there summoners are up, everything helps. Don't be that bronze/silver player that see's someone on 100hp and runs threw like 2 other champs to try and get the kill, Just because someone in on low hp does NOT mean you have to kill them, most of the time its just a bait or they have a plan.


Items.

2043.png - These will save your life a lot! Try to get one down somewhere near your mid lane and then also keep one on you so if your in trouble you have a quick escape when your trinket it down.

3285.png - Just remember this items passive, Thats means to not just sit in mid lane move around the map gank were ever you can, help your jungle if they get invaded the moment speed from this + the runes in this guide will make you very speedy.

3157.png - Katarina works very well with a Zhonya's Hour glass, i would go to say that this item is a must have on her, She can use it to bait enemies spells and ultimate's, she can use it to wait for her low cool-down moves to come back and she can use it to dodge/evade damage, Stuff like global ulty's (zigs,ashe,ez,jinx) or even zed's deathmark from his ulty.

Shameless Self Promo

My frist try at editing (its bad okay) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptGdNE4e97s

My 2nd try not as bad haha - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1gJ2LC3Uco

Feel free to leave ANYTHING in the comments, If you think somethings bad or not in meta anymore please tell me why and how come, I am kinda low elo and would love to be a very good kat player and will take any info about making myself play better as a player and as a dirty kata main XD.
