Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.pngFLASH is a MUST for Katarina. Replacing it with any other spell is a mistake. Flash is needed for engages, escaping from gank and for lane pressure.

14.pngIGNITE - Great Summoner Spell for Katarina. With ignite you have a LOT of kill potentional in lane. You can easily kill your lane opponent ( lvl3 ,lvl5, lvl6  )

12.pngTELEPORT - Take this if play 5 man duo (not a must) OR you want to roam more than usual. GREAT map pressure. Taking teleport in solo queue isn't a good idea. DONT TRUST SOLO QUEUE!!!

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

FEROCITY:

-Sorcery for more Ability Damage.

-Double Edged Sword over Feast. Double Edged Sword gives you alot more damage. Taking Feast gives you more sustain in lane, but in late game when fights get serious it doesn't give you any stat.

-Natural Talent over Vampirism. Both masteries sinergize with Katarina's kit. I like going Natural talent becouse of the little AP it gives. Since you are not going any Life Steal or Spell Vamp the 2% are going to be useless.

-Bounty Hunter over Oppressor. The bonus DMG from Bouty Hunter stacks PERMANENTLY. You can do 5% more dmg instead of 2.5%. Imagine you going solo with Double Edged Sword, Bounty Hunter and Assasin (10% more dmg).


CUNNING:

-Wanderer for roaming.

-Assasin for more kill potentional.

-Mercelies over Meditation. Ehhh-emm. Obvious.

-Dangerous Game over Bantid. You dont need the little gold from bandid since you are going to get alot of kills (you are Kat right?). Dangerous game has saved me over 100 times and i like taking it on every champion except supports.

-Precision over Intelligence. The Hybrid penetration from Precision is perfect for champion like Katarina. The CDR from Intelligence is useless since you are not 45% cdr Kat.

-Thunderlords is for adding more damage to your burst. Stormraider's Surge is not a good option becouse you are gonna - Do a combo, reset, do a combo, reset,... You are not going to do your combo and then run around like a maniac.

This is how i like to max my abilities. Yes i max W every matchup. Your W gives as much dmg as Q every rank, BUT it

gives you more movement speed. You cant poke with W unless you play against someone like Yasuo/Ekko... W gives

you more options, more outplay potentional and overall gives you more stats. You can easily dodge skills with W max.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Start when laning against skillshot orianted champion (Xerath, Ahri).
    I usualy dont start this but its good when laning against Zed/Yasuo/Talon...
    I start with this almost every single time. Doran's shield gives you hp/hp reg./dmg reduction. You can survive with this item until you can go back and pick up magic resist/armor or flat AP.
    Start with this only when you are feeling confident or you are in low elo game.

Core Items

    THESE ARE YOUR CORE ITEMS. ALWAYS BUY THESE. Use zhonya when you jump in to soak up a lot of dmg. It gives you and your team time to react to the situation.
    Sorcerer's shoes are from your core but if you are playing against heavy CC/AP team you replace them for mercury's treads

Situational Items

    Good early item. Get when you are ahead or you feel like you need more dmg.
    Great item against Hecarim/Ramus/Nasus etc... Get it when you are playing agaist easily kited champion or when you just want the health.
    Core item when playing against AP/AP carry (LeBlanc, Diana, Viktor, etc...) Get it early on when laning against an Ap champion. Late game it falls off.
    Liandry gives as much magic penetration as boots so you can always replace them for that. if you want the bonus magic penetration buy both + void staff.
    i usually buy this only for fun when im ahead.
    EXAMPLE BUILD PATH AGAINST AD (Zed, Talon, Yasuo)
    EXAMPLE BUILD PATH AGAINST AP (LEBLANC, VIKTOR, DIANA)

VS

Akali

Medium

Medium Difficulty champions:

1. Poke then and ask your jungler for little help.

2. Let them push you into tower so your jungler can gank.

3. Buy magic resits early on if you are feeling scared about the enemy's burst.

4. Dont try killing then unless you are sure you can get a kill.

VS

Anivia

Hard

Hard Difficulty champions:

1. Stay at your tower, dont push. Just farm untill jungler comes.

2. BUY magic resist/armor early.

3. When the enemy roams warn your team through pings or tell them in chat (dont follow them unless you are fed and have gold). Push to tower when missing and get minion advantage.

Aurelion Sol

Easy

Easy Difficulty champions:

1. Poke them and look for kill opportunities. Zone them from farm and push to their tower (dont forget to ward).

2. You can buy RAW dmg early for more kill potentional.

3. Roam when the enemy is pushed.

4. Help other lanes if you are ahead.

VS

Azir

Hard

Special guide for some champions (Azir)


This is Katarina's nightmare if the enemy Azir plays decent. He is going to outpoke

you,push you,... At first looks Azir completely demolishes Katarina. How do you beat him?

Well... You take Q lvl1 and you take E second. Try dodging his Q's with your E's whenever

possible. When you hit lvl 3 put another point in Q and start poking him. Lvl 4 put a

point in W. MAX Q!!!. If the enemy Azir has barrier/exhaust dont try killing him. If he

has ignite/heal/teleport/cleanse try outplaying him by dodging his ultimate if possible

(for example - he jumps you, he ults and you dodge with E.After that you do your

combo). If you think you can't do that, play safe until your jungle comes. Then burst

him as quick as possible. Also roam a lot and make him follow you. Bait him to your team and kill him.

Cho'Gath

VS

Ekko

Medium

Special guide for some champions (Ekko)


Poke Ekko whenever is possible. Jump on him after he uses Q (He doesnt have enough dmg

to trade after his Q is down). Watch out for his ultimate. You can bait his ult by

1. Your E (If you have reaction time you can dodge is ultimate with your E)

2.You can side step it and then go all in.



You can do a cool trick if, but you need to practice it first with friend. When Ekko uses

E and he auto's he teleports to the target. You can E right as he jumps and you will

make him follow you to where you jumped (you can place a ward on the tower and do

that.It will confuse him and you can get a free kill if he is not 6 or doesnt have Flash).

Special guide for some champions (Zed).


You dont always have to stay back when playing against Zed. You can max W and dodge

 every single Q. The way i want to play against Zed - i like going in his face W run, W

run, and i do that over and over. Rush zhonya early on. After you get it you can jump

him and wait for his ult (Dont ult first). Use zhonya 1 second after he ults (Thats going

to negate his ult dmg and probably his Q's). After you are out of the zhonya effect, you

run to your tower OR if he is low enough and doesnt have hexdrinker you can turn and

kill him. He wont have his Q's up, no W, his E is going to come back soon, but overall he

doesnt have dmg. So ultimate after your zhonya is down and chase him to tower. This

tactic works 90% of the time.

Zyra

Laning Back to Top

Laning as Katarina is Hard, so dont overrate it. Almost all the time you have to play safe untill you get some items. If

you are playing against a squishy opponent tho, you can kill him at levels 3/5/6. At level 3 is pretty simple. Not always

you want to get all your abilites at level 3. You sometimes want to put a 2nd point into Q and 1 in E. If the enemy

opponent is at have HP you can all in him with ignite and burst him down. If he is not, then dont try. At level 5 you

have a big power spike, since you are going to have 3 points in Q or W. They will have a lot of base dmg and can

surprise the enemy laner. When you and your opponent both hit 6, you should be carefull, becouse your laner's

ultimate is probably a lot better for bursting, or negating dmg early on (Lissandra, Kayle, Zed). Try to hit level 6

before your laner and burst him as fast as possible. If you leave your laner at low HP and you have flash you can do a

fast combo which he wont suspect. You can {Flash + E + IGNITE + Q + W +(or)R}. This is going to catch them offguard,

since you E instantly and your Q+W combo is very fast. They wont have enought time to react if they are looking

away. This will lead to a kill or you dying so be carefull.
