Summoner Spells Back to Top

First of all I do this guide because I love Katarina. So I wanted to share how I play with her but my english can be bad so if you don't understand something just tell me.

Let's begin with the spells:
4.png + 14.png-> you will always use those spells for midlane because you have a better early phase than before and aim for FB (First Blood), you also know how annoying it is when someone quit a fight with 5 hp and you greed under a turret to kill him. Ignite is the best choice for every matchup to give you early advantages on damages.

4.png + 12.png -> I feel like Katarina is a better toplaner than midlaner right now only if you have map awareness then you can use 12.png and play a lot 55.png top. This guide is for midlaner Katarina so I will not talk about how to top and builds linked to it. 14.png is also a good choice as a toplaner katarina but you will stay on your lane and if you lose then you will do nothing good but try to roam mid. Just to be clear enough, even if I think that she is a better toplaner than midlaner I never said that she is the best toplaner and she have for sure more impact as a midlaner roamer than a toplaner.

So 4.png + 14.png mid and 4.png + 12.png  top.

Why no 1.png? Because this summoner spell does have no impact and is as usefull than 3102.png.. Prepare yourself to be aimed by a lot of CC by doing a smart build not taking a useless summonner spell for 55.png.

Why no 6.png? Because ghost is a predictible summoner spell. You hear and you see someone that used a ghost and a 4.png allow you to do an extremely long katarinaewrapper.png for an imprevisible combo and a good impact compared to 6.png that is as usefull as your katarinaw.png and you don't need 2 katarinaw.png.

Why no 3.png? You can if you are afraid of your opponent because you are already a good chaser and a 3116.png builder. It does have not that much impact compared to your 14.png.

Why no 7.png21.png? You are the one dealing damages so you are not here to survive in your mind but to kill when you can even against a counter. You are not alone and you can roam.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Sorcery for +2% ability power

Fresh Blood because of the strong damages in early against your opponent after your katarinaewrapper.png
Full stack Natural Talent because the ability power and attack damages are all that you need. Cf runes.

Battle Trance because Bounty Hunter is not early and you want to snowball and Double Edged Sword is the worst you can choose because you'll take an additional 2.5% of damages who want that as an assassin. Battle Trance is so early and the 5 secondes are all you need to kill/overkill your opponent.

Wanderer full stack it's only my opinion, I think utility move speed for 55.png is better to dodge skills than 5 additional damages on minions that you will not see. Just my point of view there both are good.

Assassin because you are an assassin you are not a jungler and you'll start 1082.png nothing else. Anything else than 1082.png early is forbidden because 1056.png mana is as useless as 1082.png  mana but also because doran ring is only +60HP against a +25% regen HP on pots for 3 pots. And if you think about 1001.png+pots as a good start I will talk about it in the items section.

Full stack Merciless because you don't have mana so it's a no choice here.

Dangerous Game is the most important masteries you can choose because you want your ennemy to say "noob champ" and "lucky" you want him to suffer and fear you during all the game, you want to split on his 3001.png like it's the worst thing he bought in his life (っ-̶●̃益●̶̃)っ... Well just to say that this mastery is a must have for your actions and your stuff.

Full stack Precision because early magic pen > CDR don't forget you play 55.png. You remember about the boots destroying ennemy runes. Only with this mastery and without the boots you are already dealing strong damages over his resist. Boots are for true damage then  c( ⁰ 〰 ⁰ )੭.

Thunder Lord's decree is awesome for 55.png you'll deal so much with only one katarinaq.png+katarinaewrapper.png+AA combo.

1) Start katarinaq.png if starting lane | start katarinaewrapper.png if invading wait for your team signal before your choice,
2) If you started katarinaq.png  then katarinaewrapper.png , if you started E then katarinaq.png , remember your combo with lord decree,
3) Maximize katarinaq.png  it's poke and damages,
4) Then maximize katarinaewrapper.png  for damages but the most important thing is for CDR,
5) Finish with your katarinaw.png obviously.
A little more about spells: 
katarinaq.png bouncing blade, you'll throw a dagger in the exact opposit of your throw and at a distance separing you from a minion. This spell put a dagger on the ground but that doesn't mean you have to rush on it be patient and punish when you should and not when you can (I know it's practically impossible and that need training). If you see your opponent going back and forth around your dagger becareful of the jungler gank. Stay patient and go in when you see your opponent AA minions in 80% case he just clicked on it to last hit just one more +20G and that's what need to be punished.

katarinaw.png preparation, as said in the name it's 55.png utility spell, this spell throw a dagger on the ground at the exact point where you activated the spell. You'll gain a little move speed to allow you to run away or katarinaq.png+katarinaewrapper.png your target and going back to your katarinaw.png. This spell is strong but should not be maximize because of its CDR that will always be long even maximized. Don't depend on this spell keeping an eye on your katarinaewrapper.png is far more important to survive.

katarinaewrapper.png Shunpo, it's 55.png mobility spell, this spell allow you to chose where you will be near your target by putting your mouse somewhere around it. This spell is a teleportation and the possible targets are:
- Opponent to deal damages and use your combo,
- Daggers for exactly the same thing but with less damages but give you directly an other katarinaewrapper.png in max 2sec. You can also use a dagger to pass behind a wall using your mouse behind the wall after throwing your katarinaw.png always better than cracking a 4.png,
- Monsters and minions, well to run, farm or chase(only if you are sure to be safe),
- Plants, in the jungle plants are your friend, you can katarinaewrapper.png it and have the bonus it gave before anyone or run easier in jungle when chased.
- Allies, because you need to escape in some situation where you can't be alone like teamfights.

katarinar.png Death Lotus, "noob champ", "lucky", "press R champ", ┌༼ – _ – ༽┐. Just a moment, this spell is a bonus damage you always throw a katarinaw.png and a katarinaq.png before even pressing it. Why? Because the damages of your daggers on the ground are hundred times better than your  katarinar.png  so don't stay in your canalisation, if someone is low HP after you pressed it don't be 20.png and press katarinaewrapper.png  on your katarinaq.png  that aim the target you chosed by pressing R. A 55.png that doesn't stop to move is a good  55.png .

    You can take this instead of Dead's man plate.

o͡͡͡╮༼ ʘ̆ ۝ ʘ̆ ༽╭o͡͡͡ I know you didn't looked to what was saying before just to see the builds o͡͡͡╮༼ ʘ̆ ۝ ʘ̆ ༽╭o͡͡͡ 


Then we will have the MUST HAVE and the REPLACABLE but let's start by a fine BUILD ORDER:

BUILD ORDER:
1082.pngDark seal: The best and only start for 55.png. You will say "Why is it the best 1001.png+pots are far better!" Yep move speed + 4 pots is good BUT 1082.png give +15 AP, stacks like 3041.png and +25% healing on pots with it instead of 1001.png+pots you win AP needed for damages and you lose only 25% of the healing you will win with 4 pots. So first back it's already worther than  1001.png+pots . /!\ DON'T do the 3041.png you will lose +25% healing on pots and this 1011.png or this 3211.png and you will see how much you need it when it will be too late.

3146.png Gunblade: core item of 55.png, you can't replace it because it give all you need for your ratio, it heal 15% of damages you will do to your opponent and the item activation damages is twice the damages of your katarinaq.png. Activate it will give you mobility because you slow your ennemy and damages are what you need early to be unstoppable and you want to ヽ༼ ຈل͜ຈ༼ ▀̿̿Ĺ̯̿̿▀̿ ̿༽Ɵ͆ل͜Ɵ͆ ༽ノ.

3020.png Sorcerer Boots: you know what true damages are? Take it second if you don't and roam when you push.

3116.png Rylai: got nerfed but is so precious for 55.png, the slow will synergize with your 3146.png Gunblade slow, it will give you all the mobility you need by slowing oponnent with every spells, it'll give you some more AP and also 300 HP. Think about it if your gunblade was not done before 9:00 forget about 3089.png Deathcap and 3285.png Luden's echo.
3065.png Spirit Visage or 3742.png Dead Man's Plate: you will do both of them but you will chose the order depending of who in the game is a pain in the *BIP*. Let's start with explanation of "wtf Katank" by beginning with

3065.png Spirit Visage : this item synergize with 3146.png Gunblade and Dangerous Game. Remember 3146.png Gunblade +15% heal of your damages and then you got +20% healing of that amount, you will kill an average adc of 2000hp or less in 3 seconds so you win already 300 HP by killing him. You kill him so Dangerous Game proke 5% of your HP, by following what I say you will be 3800HP late game so you win 190HP then +20% on each proke by spirit visage so it's
360 + 228 = 588HP just by killing the ADC. Don't forget that your katarinar.png is an AOE (Area On Effect) on 3 targets and your katarinaw.png will touch everyone near you when you ulted. You will gain aproximately 800HP after killing the ADC isn't that worth when you have 3800HP and tankiness to regain 21% of your life just killing the ADC?
You will also win +10% CDR that you didn't took in your masteries for early magic pen, +500HP and RM that you will need against other AP carries. Forget about 3102.png, this item synergise with nothing in your build and EVERY CC will be for you so why dodging 89.png leona's leonazenithblade.png E when she will run on you? Just one thing 89.png is not your counter anymore, analyse and be ready to dodge.

3742.png Dead Man's Plate: it's what I like but you can also play with 3068.png Sunfire Cape. 3742.png give movespeed over time passed running an amount of AD damages will be summed to your AA proportionnal to the movespeed gaved by the item so it means. 55.png  will have to move if she want this item to be useful and "55.png that doesn't stop to move is a good  55.png " remember? 
First thing about this 3742.png : the movespeed is so worth compared to the 3285.png luden's echo one that you will stop buying 3285.png. In 1v1 you are a king but in teamfight you are a running monster that will catch all the CCs for your team, that will erase ADC and APC from ennemy team and regen HP on each damages it does. You want to be a monster? Then take this 3742.png  and kill that 51.png Caitlyn. Not only a monster you will be a catalyst (Kata list...) for your team and that's what carrying mean not only taking the kill but winning teamfights is so far more important than dying killing the ADC and say "OMG team doesn't follow I am only 2100 Hp and got osed by that OP 238.png noob champ" if you know what I mean guys who buy this and rage -> 3020.png3285.png3089.png3135.png3146.png3026.png
Yep a SNOWBALLING item should be chosed alone not 3 of them even if you are (joke)40/0  you will be useless late game.

3135.png Void Staff: with this little guy you win everything above everyone in the game your opponent 3156.png or 3001.png will be so useless that you will laugh at him and just make him like your feet. You will be known as the "noob champ", "gg riot", "report mid" player.

2138.png not this 2139.png or this 2140.png but I repeat again to plant it once and for all in your mind THIS 2138.png and don't forget to buy it grrrr. Why? You will say. Because it's +300 HP, you are not a specialist aiming for towers and why in hell do you need mana reg 2139.png  users? 2140.png  can be a good choice but you are already a reg monster and your team will be there to do aditionnal damages needed. So 2138.png  made your 3020.png a must have and you will not need those 3111.png

MUST HAVE:
3146.png 3020.png 3135.png

REPLACABLE:
3742.png <-> 3068.png: Just a philosophical choice, just choose one depending on your preference,
3065.png <-> 3001.png: I'll hate you for that but it's correct,
1082.png <-> Golds: Nothing else


SNOWBALLING:
3742.png <-> 3089.png: If you have 3146.png before 9:00 you can take it,
3742.png <-> 3026.png: If you have 3146.png before 9:00 you can take it,
3116.png <-> 3285.png: If you have 3146.png before 9:00 you can take it,

VS

Ahri

Medium

It's a war of patience the first who use is katarinaewrapper.pngahriseduce.pngE lose the war just one problem,

you have to reach katarinar.png before ahritumble.png that mean she have a little advance uppon you if she is just farming and using AA.

VS

Akali

Medium

Medium because of damages dealt and the fact that you can't let her go near minions for healing passive. It's really hard to play against her in late if you didn't won early so don't forget to katarinaw.png the akalismokebomb.png and katarinaewrapper.png on it. You can know if she is in her akalismokebomb.png or no thanks to your katarinar.png possible activation. If she akalimota.png use katarinaewrapper.png to evade from her she will lose energy as long as she doesn't hit you. If you see her with 1/4 energy it's your time to rush in. Show her that you are the best assassin.

VS

Anivia

Easy

Good Anivia would be insane but you can do what you want against her.

Her flashfrost.png is really slow so you can katarinaewrapper.png her if she did it without hesitation.
you are chased and crystallize.png then do katarinaw.png and insta katarinaewrapper.png to go behind it.
She will probably use a lot glacialstorm.png+frostbite.png combo and you will probably go 3065.png as 4th item so it's supposed to be fine.

VS

Annie

Medium

Medium because in early you just can chain kill her thanks to your combo:

katarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaq.pngkatarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaw.pngkatarinaewrapper.png+14.png+3145.png

Level 6 she will only think about this infernalguardian.png on you so you will only think about katarinaq.pngkatarinaewrapper.png4.pngkatarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaw.pngkatarinar.pngkatarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaq.pngkatarinaewrapper.png3146.png yeah it will probably do the job if she goes     3027.png 3001.png

VS

Aurelion Sol

Easy

This guy is not played a lot but keep in mind that he dislike a lot being glued to someone so just stay on him after he used aurelionsolq.png and AA+combo him to death. Aurelion Sol will be probably nest by his jungler because of this so please keep one katarinaewrapper.png anytime 4.png is a waste and have less range.

VS

Azir

Easy

Azir's CDR are quite long and he is based on AA so when he azirqwrapper.png just stay away from his azirw.png and go hit him. The matchup is supposed to be easy.

VS

Brand

Hard

The fight will be hard not because of brandw.png but brande.png+brandq.png, you will have to dodge it but it's really hard. This war is a war of mind, his strong poke will force you to go in or back and it's one of the hardest gameplay you can come against. Call help from your jungler as early as possible, if he doesn't come just go roam. If you are able to be more fed than him then you will be able to engage. If he lost his brandq.png make sure he also lost his brandw.png because his damages are able to kill you even without brandq.png to stop you.

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard

She is known to be the best counter of 55.png and when 69.png is banned  then 55.png too and you want to play 55.png so you have a lot of chance to matchup against her:


first of all be cautious of cassiopeiaw.png because you can't katarinaewrapper.png in that poisonous slow and she can cassiopeiae.png you to death. cassiopeiaq.png is dodgeable but it require skill and training to place yourself away from what she is aiming for cassiopeiaw.pngcassiopeiae.png. Obviously you want to katarinar.png as soon as possible, she is so squishy... look her stuff 3001.png. You can't kill her without
3146.png3020.png just because of one item so don't hurry. Plus she just wait that to cassiopeiar.png you so under tower is forbidden against a 69.png.
Before she does cassiopeiar.png don't katarinar.pngput your sound ON it's pure reflex, you'll hear a snake sound during some milliseconds the best strat is to katarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaw.png and move at the opposit of her just after katarinaw.png if she ult then you probably win the war of mind and can combo her. She will need more cassiopeiae.png to kill you with your 3116.png than time you will need to kill her.
This matchup is really hard because she is also a good pusher so roaming will need her to have back and you coming while she had back. 

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

Nothing to do mid, he rupture.png, you katarinaewrapper.png and if he feralscream.png you AA, in early you just have to kill him and it's also an easy gank. When she is too tanky to be killed fast by your knives you will roam a lot on other lanes and carry your game.

VS

Corki

Medium

It's an ADC, you are an assassin you are supposed to win but don't underestimate his damages. This matchup is medium because of those damages. Becareful and dodge phosphorusbomb.pngmissilebarrage.png

VS

Diana

Medium

Well the matchup is more easy than hard because you have so much burst than her in early that you can trade her at your level 2-3. Just when she dianaorbs.png think about katarinaq.png not taking the dagger katarinaewrapper.png back from her then katarinaw.png, go back on the dagger from your katarinaq.png with katarinaewrapper.png reset and AA her. Don't forget about minions they will deal more damages than her in early.

VS

Ekko

Easy

Well Ekko is predictible and it will be easy for you to dodge his spells. Normally ekkoq.png can touch you once and if he go 3285.png instead of 3001.png you are supposed to win.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

The same than Corky without armor pen and easier to catch.

It's an ADC, you are an assassin you are supposed to win but don't underestimate his damages. Just dodge his ezrealmysticshot.pngezrealessenceflux.png by going katarinaewrapper.png on him.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium
drain.png is strong but terrify.png is worst. In this matchup just use katarinaq.png on him. He will obviously use drain.png to heal himself. When he does katarinaewrapper.png him. Basically playing like that mean you don't push, just last hit and avoir being near your minions because of fiddlesticksdarkwind.png. If he use his terrify.png it's a free target as long as drain.png is not here. You can have this pattern if you just katarinaq.png him untill a jungler gank or his drain.png

VS

Fizz

Easy

You can dodge everything from Ziggs and he can't catch you. The fizzr.png is the most dangerous spell you can be hit by and it's only at 6 so don't hesitate to katarinaewrapper.png back when he fizze.png and katarinaw.pngkatarinaewrapper.png right after. Plus if he fizze.png to farm or to engage just kill him.

VS

Galio

Hard

Well just try to kill the unkillable. You will have to early kill him before first back so play agressively as much as possible. Why? Because it's one of this champs that can buy 3065.png first and his galiobulwark.png force you to katarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaq.png+AA then  go back with katarinaewrapper.png or katarinaw.pngobviously you will roam after his third back because he will be unkillable. If you have an opportunity or a jungler just try to kill him but don't greed just keep in mind you can't kill him basically because of galiobulwark.png but you can kill the botlane. Well all his spells are skillshots so you will be fine and will not be killed just push hard and roam. You can go and poke him with all your spells after his galioresolutesmite.png. He will not galioidolofdurand.png unless you are low HP or his jungler is coming so poking with katarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaq.png+AA will be fine. This gameplay need to be cautious of ennemy jungler and also have vision on the road you want to go. So buy the pinkward as much as possible and place it on the road you will not roam at because the ennemy will always try to follow you and the longer your ward stay the better it is. Remember 75G lost can save you from giving 300G to your opponent so basically it's like winning 225G just using 75G. Keep that in mind and buy your pinkward.2055.png

VS

Gangplank

Medium

Tons of damages battle you have no CC so gangplankw.png is just for heal you just have to be cautious of one spell during all the game gangplanke.png just katarinaewrapper.png on the gangplanke.png and your AA reset will be faster than his gangplankqwrapper.png. It's a game between you and him but you can win this if you are a fine stratege in positionning yourself. He will be probably more predictible than you will but it's still a medium-hard opponent.

VS

Gragas

Easy

As a jungler his belly is fat and strong but as a midlaner everything is slow so everything is easy to see not even predict.

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

This champs is a pusher thanks to heimerdingerq.png and you can combo those heimerdingerq.png and use AA on it. Destroy all of it his CDR is not as good early. Then after turrets you can combo him it's not a hard matchup since his heimerdingere.png is hard to place.

VS

Karma

Medium

Medium because of karmaspiritbind.png and karmasolkimshield.png that are strong against you because you insta damage and don't want to be CC but a lot of 43.png use karmamantra.png for karmaq.png better for damages. Use the opportunity to katarinaewrapper.png her or dodge it. The matchup will be harder if she use karmamantra.png for karmaspiritbind.png  but don't be scared too much she will probably only buy an 3001.png against you and your late game will just ignore her because you will kill her before even knowing her behing here.

VS

Karthus

Medium

The good 30.png is Hard but it's not that played and some are just "trying the champ" so it's a medium opponent, you will katarinaewrapper.png on him ignoring the karthuswallofpain.png turning around him while hitting to dodge karthuslaywastea1.png and thanks to 3145.png you will probably chainkill him. Just if you start to run you will regret it because of karthusdefile.png and that's why it's a medium fight because karthuslaywastea1.png is really strong and if you are too much hitted by it then it's a loss. Know that if you and your opponent 30.png die at the same time it's worther for you than for him but that don't mean you can die against him poke katarinaq.pngkatarinaewrapper.png and back with katarinaewrapper.png

then you can ignore karthuswallofpain.png.

VS

Kassadin

Hard

He will use his passive everytime you katarinaq.png and have the same CD on it. His damages are near your and his mobility practically the same. Help from jungler is needed but you can also see an opportunity and kill him. If he don't 3001.png first you have a chance in winning the lane.


You can buy 3155.png before your 3146.png, it will help you to survive to situations where his riftwalk.png will be dangerous for you. You will need to roam a lot but do it in a way that he can't follow you. 

1) back in front of him. He will try to stop you from back by running obviously at you.
2) stop the back and run to your second tower in the fog of war.
3) chose the lane to gank.
4) do the gank and if you can't kill don't mind he will come at you so just back and return mid to retry the process.
5) don't forget to take 1 to 2 waves between each roam and try to push with katarinaq.pngkatarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaewrapper.png.

VS

Kayle

Medium

Wait untill judicatorrighteousfury.png finished to combo her and at 6 force her to  judicatorintervention.png and go back with katarinaewrapper.png then you can 4.png and combo her. The fight early will be easier than late so start to roam at 6 and help your jungler if he need help. First Blood on the opponent jungler is so good to have.

VS

Kennen

Hard

He pokes you with AA, Stun you twice with passive and do some damages with kennenshurikenhurlmissile1.pngkennenbringthelight.png so it's not a matchup that good but if he does a mistake like kennenlightningrush.png near one of your daggers on the ground. Jump on him and combo him. Under tower is a mistake so don't.

What I do against him is waiting for his Q then I go in but it's always dangerous and roaming is always the best choice against him.

VS

Kled

Medium

Well I saw it so I can talk about it,

Kled strength is his passive and tankiness but you can't do the mistake of buying 3135.png too early that will change nothing and you need to be tanky as well. 
When you here a fine music from somewhere just run under your turret he will not be alone. It's still a medium opponent because you can outplay him easily just becareful his damages are real when he want.

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

Becareful of his passive and don't under tower he doesn't deserve it.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

Since she can deal so much damages with just some few spells it's a dangerous opponent. Following my build will not help you in early. Only your jungler can and it's hard to gank a Leblanc so roam is the only way to do your way to the 3065.png you can do it 3rd and 3116.png 4th because of the matchup but don't AA minions she is dangerous and can kill you in few spells. 


Well you still have a chance against her because she is not tanky and can be easily brained. Just start with 3155.png and play at a long range from her. You can't really farm in an other way than with your katarinaq.png so she will use her double leblancw.png to catch you and deal some damages. Then thanks to the 3155.png you will be able to katarinaewrapper.png on her and combo her without the risk of dying. Use directly your 4.png to dodge the obvious leblance.png. Then she will go back to her leblancw.png or you killed her but you tried though.

VS

Lulu

Medium

Good pokes and CC from this little thing that will be hard to attack but if you can catch on her or have FB on her it's a GG. Just stay patient and do the pros and cons of jumping on her don't do it just because your brain want blood.

VS

Lux

Medium

I will say medium because of the damages but it's still skillshots and you can dodge it with katarinaewrapper.png. If you see 99.png luxprismaticwave.png it means she want to die, go avoiding luxlightbinding.png and kill her.


Don't be agressive level 1 just wait level 2 then you can go.

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Malzahar spells are strong because of damages but also range and you can't  really predict malzahare.png target that put you out from your minions. The creatures are a good way to win +10 golds but you lost range minions +20 ones... His malzaharq.png is a silence that you can dodget but 4.pngmalzaharr.png is not dodgeable. You can 3065.png 3rd and 3116.png 4th if it's too hard for you or just like a lot of matchup roam.


Against him you have to play an agressive early based on watching what he does. When he malzahare.png a minion, don't be afraid and go without hesitating on him to proke some lord's decree. His creatures are not controlled by him but by is malzahare.png so if you got malzahare.png on you don't even try to trade and use katarinaewrapper.png to run away. His malzaharq.png is really hard for him to place so in case you are trading him and see you are able to kill him 4.png to not get caught by his spell. When 6 is here you can't 1v1 if you lost early so don't forget that your insane early is your best weapon for your late.

VS

Maokai

Hard

It's a matchup like Galio but harder :D. Yeah in my opinion it's the worst you can have against you in all point of views. His damages are high, you can't kill him because he will play with 3065.png to improve the heal on his passive. He will stun/slow/bump you while jungler will be here under your tower. Well you can still win if you are good with map awareness and you are not salty with your mates. Keep in a good mood and stay cool. Katarina can burn the tree right?

Well you will have to deal damages and stay tanky if you want to survive and the slow will not help you because you can't kill him with it so only for this matchup:
3116.png <-> 3151.png

VS

Morgana

Medium

When she blackshield.png wait like your noodles in the microwave and it's ready to be eat. Dodge the darkbindingmissile.png and it's a medium matchup because of soulshackles.png if she does katarinaewrapper.png before being darkbindingmissile.png or it's a lost trade. 

VS

Nasus

Easy

You know what? You are his worst counter, killing a 75.png is extremely easy your are the queen of SM and he is your loyal dog.


He will start nasusq.png and you will start katarinaq.png + AA + AA + AA and when he is low you farm. He will want his farm so bad that he will come back. Then you will katarinaq.pngkatarinaewrapper.png+AA well you see what's coming. 2 Choices:
- He will buy tankiness to avoir more damages and force you to under tower. You can manage him but don't go brainless under his tower even in 6/0.
- He will buy AP to nasuse.png you and believe he will avoir you from comming. Of cours not you denied his farm so his nasusq.png is useless. 

One thing in this matchup. Ward and if you don't ward don't cry because of babysit you are warned.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

Well don't go too much near him and just poke it'll be fine early and you will roam well. It's still a medium difficulty because the matchup is quite difficult to deal with.


VS

Nidalee

Easy

Don't hesitate go in. She thought she would do more damages than you thanks to passive. Wait a spear, avoid a sneaky trap and you are ready to kill her anyway, anytime.

VS

Nunu

Medium

Excellent duelist because of consume.png and iceblast.png. In lane it'll be harder than you think but it's a medium-easy opponent because you can overkill him. Just don't be too much poked by iceblast.png before level 3 and look at his builds. If he doesn't go tank then you can combo with no problem.

VS

Orianna

Medium

Your exact opposit but also a good matchup. It's really good to play against an 61.png because you learn how to dodge, how to position yourself and also to be patient.


Her orianaizunacommand.png is slow but you can't really know where she want to place it. You will think it's on you but it can be on your dagger on the ground near her or on a minion that you want to katarinaewrapper.png. Her orianaredactcommand.png can cover a good part of your damages and her orianadissonancecommand.pngorianadetonatecommand.png is to avoid at all costs even a 4.png. Normally, the fight will continue even at the end with your tankiness. You will still have a good advantage thanks to your tankiness but also the fact that she will goes 3001.png only against you.

VS

Sona

Easy

Show her that the only thing she can do is supporting an ADC and that you deal far more damages than she does.

Avoid sonar.png and go on her to punish her sonaq.png. Just start with katarinaewrapper.png for this matchup after first wave it's a level 2 next minion that can kill her with a simple katarinaq.png.

VS

Swain

Medium

Pros and Cons:

Your katarinar.png counter his swainmetamorphism.png
Your katarinaewrapper.png allow you to get out fast of swaindecrepify.png and also swainshadowgrasp.png
So what you are afraid of is swaintorment.png well do 3065.png 3rd and then 3116.png 4th 

Don't be too focused on his HP reg and always start your combo on him by katarinar.png you know why.

VS

Syndra

Medium

It's a medium-hard matchup because a good 134.png with 3001.png will be a pain in the *BIP* and her combo syndraq.pngsyndraw.pngsyndrae.png is really dangerous. I would say you can dodge easily but you will dodge every syndraq.png so it's kinda hard to know when to katarinaewrapper.png. Basically try to katarinaewrapper.png to avoid syndrae.png but at level 6 it'll be hard for you. 3065.png 3rd then 3116.png 4th can be a good and a bad idea for this matchup it really depends on how deep you are against her. If you have the advantage go 3116.png  3rd.

VS

Taliyah

Medium

I don't have so much experience on how to play against her but I am sure that her taliyahe.png have to be dodged by a katarinaewrapper.png on her and that her taliyahq.png and taliyahwvc.png are so predictible that you will basically have a good matchup. Not knowing that much about the champ I'll say it's a medium matchup because I think it's a good roamer thanks to taliyahr.png but also a good pusher that will not allow you to roam.

VS

Talon

Medium

Assassin vs Assassin start by poking near him katarinaq.png. Then when he talonw.png you katarinaewrapper.png behind him on the dagger from katarinaq.png to preserve you from aditionnal damages of the talonw.png. He will talonq.png then katarinaewrapper.png back at your place. If he still want to hit you press katarinaw.png to run a little. By poking him little by little you will see when to go in and kill him. 

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

You have free damages over him when his pickacard.png is used. Just don't hesitate he as damages, you have so much more.

VS

Veigar

Medium

When you see veigareventhorizon.png just go right to the center. He will try to veigarbalefulstrike.pngveigardarkmatter.png you inside. You will instantly katarinaewrapper.png him avoiding the damages and dealing so much to him. It's a medium-easy fight because of veigarr.png if you are not able to dodge veigarbalefulstrike.png or manage the jungler ganks then you will be killed easily by a simple finger on this spell veigarr.png.

VS

Vel'Koz

Easy

Don't take too much distance from him and when he velkoze.pngkatarinaewrapper.png him or out of it. Stay with your minions to avoid velkozq.png and you can take some velkozw.png first proke.

When he velkozr.png just don't hesitate :
4.pngkatarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaw.pngkatarinar.pngkatarinaq.pngkatarinaewrapper.png 

why using 4.png? The response is in the question for Vel' Koz point of view it'll be:

161.png "You are too far from me just die from my full pow..."
161.png As been slained by 55.png

No one will see a 4.png comming on him in a situation he think he outplay you.

VS

Viktor

Hard

Well it's hard untill you got 3065.png as 4th item. But you will need 3116.png 3rd for your roam so try to dodge his viktordeathray.png and don't be too greedy because viktorpowertransfer.png can avoid one dagger damage.

VS

Vladimir

Medium

It's a Galio like matchup. If he play 3065.png first then you can't trade him and you will have to roam and have kills somewhere else. You will have to push hard and it's dangerous with a jungler incomming. Be prepared mentally, the strongest mentality will win.

VS

Xerath

Easy

You can dodge everything and you will love his ult thanks to a good combo that no one will se comming to him:

4.pngkatarinaewrapper.png

You can even avoir his e by dodging a little step to the right or the left.
This matchup is really easy as the new 55.png don't waste this occasion to carry the game.

VS

Yasuo

Medium
157.png is your worste ennemy, you hate him so much that you want to kill him at all costs.

Why? because his yasuowmovingwall.png can erase your daggers that should have been putted on the ground. You will see the area where you would have katarinaewrapper.png but you will not cause the dagger will not be here anymore. You need reflexes to dodge his yasuoqw.png by katarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaw.png him but he will yasuowmovingwall.png your katarinaw.pngso just katarinaq.pngkatarinaewrapper.pngkatarinaw.png+AA and run with all you can. You will poke, he will poke and the one that will greed the most will lose.

This matchup is medium-hard.

VS

Zed

Medium

An other medium-hard matchup that will need strategy from you. Basically like your daggers on the ground you have to play with his zedw.png you want him to want to proke his passive (to greed) so you will poke him and take some damages in return. A mistake you shouldn't do is a little chase on lane because a double zedq.png is to avoid. You can take one but not 2 because of his lord's decree. 


If he doesn't buy 3155.png it's normally win for you. If he did take 3742.png 3rd and 3116.png 4th.
His zedr.png need you to katarinaw.png during animation and katarinaewrapper.png at the end before the damages.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

It's all about dodging skillshots and waiting. If he did his ziggse.png and you can avoid to walk in. Then jump on him and do a good combination of all that you have. If you want to roam be careful of his push facility and his tower destruction. And about his ziggsr.png if you don't see him and see an ally low HP yell at him to go back it's really dangerous.

VS

Zyra

Hard

To avoid most of her damages you will need to walk on her plants but she will just zyraq.png and zyrae.png. Well it's dodgeable but the awakenned plants are dealing a lot of damages and are acting like turrets so it's really hard to deal with Zyra without help and you can't even kill her fast because she will start with 3001.png against you.
