Summoner Spells Back to Top

1. 4.png  Even though Flash got nerfed in the last patch, it still is a MUST have summoner spell. 
 
-But.. i have Caliber Net (3-d spell).
-No, Caliber net won't be enough to escape a well planned gank or a badly started team-fight.

Also, a double flash will allow you to live throughout a bruiser's burst even if he is a jumper (jax, irelia, jayce, etc) or it can get you a better re-positioning in team fights.

2. 21.png Barrier is a great asset in Caitlyn's arsenal.

Why 21.png and not 7.png ?

Barrier is a lot better than heal in a bot-lane duel. If the enemy ad has an 14.png , or a healing reduction spell (18_icon_64.png 21_icon_64.png 110_icon_64.png ) your heal will only be 50% effective. 

Also, Barrier protects you from more amount of damage than the heal gives you ( lvl 6 -heal =165 heal, barrier = 195 shield )

3. 1.png Cleanse is the best ad asset you can get. Being mainly a late-game summoner spell, it also helps you a lot in laning phase assuming they have a cc support or ad.

So how do i chose which one to pick?

1.png You pick it when they have a cc reach team. Theese are some of the setups where you should pick it :

32_icon_64.png
22_icon_64.png
44_icon_64.png + a burster
89_icon_64.png 
113_icon_64.png
143_icon_64.png
267_icon_64.png

21.png All the other times when clease is not worth it .

Do i ever pick 7.png ?
Barrier's disadvantage is that is only lasts for 2 secconds, so if they do not have a burst spell you can dodge with barrier, you might wanna get heal. That happens in few matchups. For example : 22_icon_64.png +40_icon_64.png or 96_icon_64.png +20_icon_64.png

14.png ?

Ignite on cait is just not worth is because you will never get the opportunity to get in range to use it. If you get there, you're doing it wrong. Cait's advantage is her huge range, so you have to use it to it's fullest.

6.png3.png12.png
Just no. That will do.


UPDATE: Heal just got op.
Will update why later.

    +2.25 attack damage Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
1. Quints

Why Lifesteal? 

Because lifesteal quints+ doran's blade start allow you to stay in lane as much as needed, giving a 10hp reg/hit.

Other viable quints? Flat ad

2. Seals -armor obviously

3. Glyphs

Now here it's a personalized build for everyone, i personally like to have enough mana early-mid to not run out of. But, of course , in some cases, i use 9x magic res. (a lot of ap on the enemy team). 

Between magic res and magic res/lvl, you have to decide for yourself. Some like to go very aggressive early-on (i do), and if the enemy team has a sona or some sort of ap-based support, you need that flat mr to win trades in early lvls. If they have low ap or no ap botlane and 2-3 ap based champs on the other lanes, you should get the mr/level glyphs. It's your choice if you want to mix them with a little mana reg or not.

4. Marks

I run 8x flat ad runes, for the extra damage boost and 1% crit chance.
Why 1% crit chance? Because i like to be very aggressive early game and if you get a crit while dueling the enemy botlane, it's a won fight.

Why not armor pen runes? Because it's just not worth it, especially now, when they weakened them.
How many pages do i need for Cait?

I personally suggest 3. I do not consider it's worth wasting more than 3. 2 of them with flat mr and mr/level in glyphs+ another one with mana reg +mr or mr/level in glyphs.

lvl 1. 


invade, your team goes red, what do you skill? W? no! you don't yet. If there will be a fight, your q will be more important for the burst damage if you catch them off guard. But never learn a skill at lvl 1 until you see and evaluate the situation. You might need an escape, and that fast learned E will save your ass.

If you decide to defend your objectives, a well placed trap could screw up their whole invade.

Why max E before W?

Easy, because you get less cooldown, bigger range and more damage on your escape mechanism.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    This is the standard build.
    Furor is very situational. Get furor only when you need to kite a lot. Otherwise, get homeguard, it saves you a lot of time and it helps you rush objectives.
    I've recently found out that this works a bit better in soloq than rushing infinity. BT as first gives you a decent early+mid and since in early/mid you deal over 60% of your damage from spells, the extra ad is just marvelous. Then you followup with zeal, infinity.

Situational Items

    For fun only
    If you really need to kill a bruiser
    If you need to survive bursts (zed, diana, etc)
    Mid-game domination
    If you really need to get that armor (vs 4,5 ad)
    Anti-cc. ( lux, ashe, rammus, malz, ww, etc)
    Anti-bursters or to prevent them for getting resets ( khazix, katarina, etc)
    Probably the best defensive item atm

QUICK BUILD  (if your game is just starting, and u want to know fast what u must buy, this is for you) : 


1055_32.png -> 1038_32.png -> 3072_32.png-> 1001_32.png -> 3087_32.png ->3250_32.png -> 3035_32.png -> 3031_32.png ->3102_32.png

FULL BUILD EXAMPLE 1  : 3252_32.png + 3031_32.png + 3046_32.png3035_32.png + 3139_32.png3072_32.png

FULL BUILD EXAMPLE 2:   3250_32.png + 3031_32.png3046_32.png + 3035_32.png + 3153_32.png3026_32.png 

These 2 builds are just 2 examples of what you can get, you need to diversify your build according to the game you're in 

1. Start


First option : 1055_32.png  ( only get this if you have the lifesteal runes). If you don't, start with 1036_32.png + 2003_32.png x2
Why? Because the doran+ the lifesteal runes give you enough sustain to stay in your lane as long as you need.

2. First recall    1053_32.png  3006_32.png  1055_32.png  2003_32.png


At the first recall, you should try to get the vampiric scepter or the Berserker . The 2nd doran's is there for a little more sustain and surv.
If you got enough, you can get the BF 1038_32.png

3. Your item choice at second recall


By the second recall, you should have between 1 and 2-3 k depending on how bad you pwned them so far.

Your first goal is 3031_32.png or 3072_32.png, so keep that in mind. If you get a great start, try getting a 1038_32.png  or even a 3072_32.png, if not, a 1037_32.png will do just fine. Also, finish your 3006_32.png . 

4. Min 15-20


Ok, now you got 3031_32.png or 3072_32.png 

Your next option is 3087_32.png or 3046_32.png. Why? because you just need that attack speed.

5. Mid game build ( MIn 20-40) 


Now you should have something like this : 3006_32.png + 3031_32.png or 3072_32.png + 3087_32.png or 3046_32.png

Your next item will be 3035_32.png  if they are starting to stack armor. 

If you have a hard time, and you don't need the armor pen. bonus, get a survivability item  3140_32.png or 3026_32.png, something to help you stay alive as much as possible. 

If they die like flies and you are snowballing, get the one you didn't get yet 3072_32.png or 3031_32.png  or 3153_32.png

Also, get your boots enchanted!  3252_32.png3250_32.png

6. Final build (Late game)


 3252_32.png3031_32.png 3087_32.png3035_32.png

Now what? 

Now you have to figure out what you need next. These are the possible items you can get, depending on your opponents and on what your allies need you to do:

3046_32.png More attack speed for longer fights
3026_32.png You're focused now that you have 10-0
3139_32.png An annoying cc you take every fight? Np, here's some damage with the cleanse !
3153_32.png They are sooooooo tanky man
3102_32.png Y u hate me Leblanc? 111_icon_64.png 7_icon_64.png19_icon_64.png69_icon_64.png45_icon_64.png89_icon_64.png105_icon_64.png134_icon_64.png
3131_32.png You need to kill that bruiser who's jumping you preety much alone? A divine blade will do just fine.
3172_32.png I've seen many ppl get this on ad's, but i personally don't recommend it. Sure, it gives you some tenacity, but you are a fcking ad, so dont get caught and cc'd !  You can get this when you are full build, trade your boots for this

VS

Alistar

Easy

Alistar u want to camp my bush? Here, have a trap to da face instead

VS

Annie

Hard

Annie is the most annoying thing existent in this world.


She deals tons of damage, while having also one of the best ccs.

Try to trap your brush ( the closest to you ) and poke her every time she enters your brush so she won't have the guts to try zoning you.

Also, rush lvl2 !

VS

Ashe

Medium

Ashe vs Cait is pretty much balanced, they both got their own set of cc and lane pushing skillz. The winner will be the one with the better sup, or the most skilled one ofc.

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

Blitzy u like bushes? Well you can't have them, they are trapped :(


Oh, you trying to grab me? Oh.. what's this? i can jump back and u miss all your hooks? wtf?

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

She is your hardest opponent =)

VS

Corki

Easy

You counter him too hard.


You got too much range, and you can get out of his machine gun with your E.

VS

Draven

Medium

Now this is a tricky one, which you will only win if you out-play him hard.

Who says Cait is stronkk vs Draven hasn't met the right Draven.
Try to play safe, and when he runs to Q you, web him + harass when he goes back.

The new draven is a little weaker. When he doesn't catch the axe you can go all in if you got all your combo (W,E,Q).

VS

Ezreal

Easy

Easy. Dodge his q, stay behind minions, harass as much as you can.

VS

Graves

Easy

Stay max range, poke his as much as you can when his q is down, and then take the free kill.

VS

Jinx

Hard

All depends on the sup. If you get cc'd it will be almost impossible to escape a jinx+ a cc sup.


Try to always stay as safe as possible and remember that jinx's weakness is that she has no escape, while you do. Try to out-position her and NEVER let yourself get hit by her choppers ( her E)

Her ult is very easy to flash/e so try to dodge that too.

When poking jinx, be careful to not be next to the minion she attacks since you will be getting 100% splash damage.

VS

Kog'Maw

Hard

Now this guy will party in your blood if you don't zone him early on. Take advantage of his W cooldown and engage.

VS

Leona

Hard

Take cleanse! it will save your life


Also, try to stay at max range and dodge her spear.

VS

Lucian

Medium

Lucian is one of the best ads in the game atm. 


When facing lucian, try not to trade with him, try to just out-poke him.

If he gets closer to you with his dash, E+q him.

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy

Hey Miss Fortune, do you have a passive? Because if you do, it's pretty useless cuz i'm hitting you all the time lolz.

VS

Nami

Easy

Rip her mermaid tail to get to the good part ( her human legs), and then do nasty things to her. Gurl on gurl action


Dodge the bubble by always moving forward when u see it( they all expect u to go back so they cast it a little behind you) or by using your E. If you dodge the bubble, its gg

VS

Nunu

Hard

This guy will fck ur plans bad. Don't let him get to you in team fights, or you'll attack two times the whole fight

VS

Quinn

Medium

E anytime she slows you, run/ cast q until his blind wears off.

When she is in brid form, trap under her, E back and then hit her FROM A DISTANCE.

Never fight her 1 v1 if she is bird without kiting her

VS

Sivir

Medium

Hello Sivir. Oh fck, im dead.

The new sivir is great, but she got nerfed. Her q is no longer a problem in early game, it has very low damage. 

Dont even think about planting traps, she will be too happy.

Try to get as many Headshots onto her as possible.

VS

Sona

Easy

hit hit hit dead.

VS

Soraka

Easy

hahah

VS

Taric

Medium

He can't reach you.

When he stuns, E back if his ad is in range. If not, just auto hit him

VS

Teemo

Hard

TEEMU RULZ DA WORLDDDDDDDDDDD

VS

Thresh

Medium

Quick tips: Deny him every time he tries to get a soul, deny him every time he closes the gap, dodge the hook, don't break the walls of his ult, care for lvl 1 fight (dont fight with him at lvl 1).

Thresh is atm one of the most(if not the most) overpowered champions ingame.
But, as many champs, he has his own weaknesses.

First, thresh has great poke if you allow him to get in range for an auto attack. This is easy to counter. You just have to punish him every time he tries to get in range (you lend 2-3 auto attacks on him also)

Second, his hook. His hook is very easy to dodge because in order to use it he stays like 1.x seconds in place. That is a huge gap you can use.

Thirdly(is that even a word?), Trap his bushes and ask your support to ward them also. DON'T LET HIM CAMP YOUR BUSH! Punish him every times you can.

Eazy! xd

RUN when he uses lantern backwards. RUN LIKE A CRAZAH WOMAN!!  (cuz his jungler is there)

VS

Tristana

Medium

Be very careful early on, she has insane early game damage, and rape her mid game. In late, she will be a worthy opponent, so try to out-farm her.

VS

Twitch

Medium

Twitch... i can see you

The most important thing is to push him out of the lane, outpoke him early and get a cs advantage. And by all means, don't die. Tell your support the same. If twitch gets any advantage on you, he can easily snowball the lane.


VS

Urgot

Medium

Nobody plays him anymore (sadly), so dont bother. If , by any chance, you get a urgot in the opposing team, force a fight early (lvl 1-2), and then snowball him.

VS

Varus

Medium

Tricky one, everything depends on Varus's skill. Try to out-poke him.

Poke hard at lvl 1, get E at lvl 2. If you see him trying to get 2 autos on you for his E, E+Q after the second hit so you can dodge his E.

VS

Vayne

Easy

Hit hit hit hit hit hit.. Q

Your lane setup Back to Top

Atm, the supports are kinda broken so try to get a 1_64.png 412_64.png 89_64.png 267_64.png

Also, viable options :

51_icon_64.png + 53_icon_64.png = great kill lane, you trap in bush , he pulls him to ur trap, then pew pew kill
51_icon_64.png + 37_icon_64.png = insane poke
51_icon_64.png + 40_icon_64.png = great sustain and a little damage boost 
51_icon_64.png + 44_icon_64.png = great kill lane also, you can zone them easily 
51_icon_64.png + 89_icon_64.png = another good kill lane
51_icon_64.png + 117_icon_64.png = great poke, sustain, but not so awesome lvl 6 comparing to other combos
51_icon_64.png + 12_icon_64.png = depends on the Alistar, he must be insane and fcking crazy suicider. Just as we like it <3
51_icon_64.png + 412_icon_64.png = great lane, focus on early kill-poke, start with Q
51_icon_64.png + 267_icon_64.png = You can be aggressive early with her because of her great sustain-poke heal +cc. If she lands all the bubbles, you can poke a lot. If she doesn't, pray to god to kill all mermaids.

In the end, you can lane with any support and have a great performance, because cait can be played in so many ways. You can be very agressive, you can passive farm, you can counter a kill lane. It's one of the most versatile champs in-game atm. 

Early Mid Late Back to Top

1. Teamfights

Cait is one of the AD's with the longest range. That is your advantage. To use that advantage to the fullest, you must always stay very very back, and come last in fights. 

For example, they engage dragon. You must stay whithin your team's safety , but in max range for auto attacks, because in early fights every hit counts.

A. Early


Basically, be very agressive if you can afford it. You can do that if they don't have a long range kill lane (example: 53_icon_64.png89_icon_64.png110_icon_64.png42_icon_64.png ) . If you got a sup like taric/leona/jana , someone who doesn't need a bush, tell them to zone the outer part of the lane while you ATTACK FROM BUSH. HIDDEN PASSIVE: When Cait attacks from bush, she gets double the charges in Headshot. So, you only have to attack 3 times to get your Headshot up IF YOU ARE IN A BUSH

When a jungler ganks you, try setting a trap in front of you and only afterwards use your Net to jump.

When your jungler gangs, u are the best ad baiter in za world, so keep that in mind and bait them stunnz.

If you start as blue team, ask your support to get Golems first, you will have a big advantage, and you might even set up a lvl 2 kill, as you will get to lvl 2 faster than the enemy ad.

When laning with a sup with a stun (12_icon_64.png44_icon_64.png53_icon_64.png89_icon_64.png), after your sup stuns/hooks/spears Immediately put a trap under your enemy's ass so he gets a double stun. IF you can't reach it in time, put one in front of him, so he will be forced to burn a flash or die.


B. Mid-game


Your cait is great in midgame, you just have to keep in mind that u are not vayne, you are not graves, you don't have shitloads of damage. You got your own set, ofc, but u cant insta burst someone down or solo a bruiser YET.

Focus your attention towards objectives, dragon, red, blue and help your team secure them. Also , ALWAYS STAY BEHIND. And the most important thing, don't get greedy !! Greed is your worst enemy.

Because you are such a bad ass, expect everyone to focus you, because they will. Make sure that u get in your team's safety before turning around and doing the damage.

Also, it's very important to place the traps in team fights. In an ideal teamfight, you will have 1-2 traps placed and another one to place whenever u want, when your team stuns someone. You can place a trap in front of yourself to protect yourself from a bruiser, or u can place one in front of the ap, to protect him. Ofc no-one will thank you for those traps saving them, because they don't notice how fcking amazing u are, but you got ur free elo.

So.. stay safe and farm farm farm.

C. Late game 

This is your time to shine! IF you position correctly, you will be un-fcking-defeatable. You got ur web, you got ur cleanse, you got ur flash and mb ur qqs. I mean.. can u get any more op ? Yes you can, u have FCKING 650 RANGE!

Dont do the mistake of initiating the fights with your ultimate, or using it when u cant secure a clear shot. Use it when your bruiser is carving in the enemy ap/ad and help him!. U will give that fcker a 50% hp bomb in da face.

They got 39_icon_64.png. What do i do? 
Well, you ask your sup to assist you and u have to kill her before you get to the rest of the team, you can't do anything otherwise. When she jumps, instantly E, then trap! Try to get in a bush to have double headshot procs, the get the free kill.
Against any bruiser you can do the same.

Who do i focus? 

You don't!. You( as an ad) can't focus in teamfights except in a situation where nobody focuses you, but that will never happen cuz ur op as hell. You hit the target that is the closest to you and you stay in max range at the same time. Ofc, if you can chose between hitting a Nunu sup or Ahri, assuming they are both close to you, you will kill the ahri bitch in 3 hits.

The secret of making huge amounts of damage? MOVE, KITE and KITE again cuz ur fcking awesome at it.

How to place dem trapz Back to Top

I see people focus a lot in other guides on how to place the traps. I will detail it for you:

First step

Put your finger on the keyboard( the thing in front of you with a lot of BUTTONS) and find the W key. Good, now press it.

So far so good. You will now see a blue target on your screen (the screen is that monitor with lots of colors you are staring at)

Second step

Look to your right (or left if you are a lefty). You will see a little thing with a cable attached to it ( or not if you are in the next generation of technology and u have a wireless O.o). Hold it in your hand like you would hold a boob (boob like in BOOBS, TITS, BREASTS, JUGGLES, KNOCKERS, FUN BAGS, this -> (.)(.) )

Great. Now that you have both your hands busy, move the boob-like thing ( some people call it a mouse- yea, i know, crazy right?) and chose a location for your trap.

It shouldn't take you more than a few minutes....
Have you found it? Great

Now step three

Double check to see if that is the exact position you wanted for your trap. If it is, click on the left side of the so called MOUSE once.

Step 4

Admire your work. Job well done! Congratulations.

Now you can zoom on it and see the little cup cake inside . If you followed all these steps above, you should probably delete League Of Legends from your computer.

Cheers!

Ok, seriously now

I have recently noticed ppl say you should place traps with cait as wards, so you don't get ganked. That's a stupidity. You only do that if you got no wards on your support. Otherwise, those traps should be used to win your lane.


First trap. 
You should place your first trap in your bush or theirs, to scout so they don't ambush you for a first blood.

How to position traps.

When you are freezing the lane, place a trap in the end of their bush so the jungler won't be able to lane-gank you.

When you are pushing, place all 3 traps near his tower and force him to restrain movement so he won't be able to proper last hit. 

When you are fighting, always have the trap cooldown on 0, you will need the trap for fights.

SOLO Q Back to Top

3. SOLO Q 


Our deepest fear, i know.

Why is cait awesome in soloq? 

Because.. you play it! No, now seriously she is insane in soloq. You have the possibility to chose your play style depending on the skill of your support. If he is stupid as fuck and a complete idiot ( yes , i know it happens a lot) , you can either chose to pwn the enemies by urself, because u have that option, or either play defensive and don't mind your retarded suport partener. 

ALso, when a jungler comes to gank you , you got great chances of escaping, and when your jungle comes, you can help him a lot with your huge range, and maybe, just maybe, one of the opponents get into one of your traps and you secure the kill. Easy, right? Well.. no. When you get a sustain lane on the other side and u got like nunu cait there isn't much you can do except afk farm . 

For example, let's say they got 40_icon_64.png + 67_icon_64.png , and u are 51_icon_64.png + 20_icon_64.png . Here you must go all agressive, because if that Vayne gets fed or if you get the same amount of minions as her and you both didnt die or kill , she has won the lane cuz of her late game insane damage. You need to tell your nunu to wake the fuck up and play as agressive as he can.

SOLO Q team fights. 


You got a shitty team, nobody protects you, all flame you. Np, you don't give a fuck. You will always stay behind every single one of your team and DPS the fck out of your adversaries. With 650 range, you will be able to get to the most fed adversary and shoot him down. Your damage if insane if you have farmed right and you can possition yourself in a bush during team-fights.

Latest patch gameplay Back to Top

At your requests, i have deleted the previous patch changes.

Latest patch changes:

Cait just got a little nerfed, but she still hasn't lost anything from her specific skill-set, just a little early-game attack speed.


L.E.
Latest patch made cait one of the strongest ads, if not the strongest. 

L.E.
Supports rule the world now!
no, seriously, they do

Steroids Back to Top

All AD-s have a smth called a steroid. A steroid is most times a spell. This steroid, when activated or casted gives you that damage burst that you need as an ad.

Example: 

96_icon_64.png Kog -his W is his steroid, allowing him to get tons of damage with the % hp.
22_icon_64.png Ashe - no steroid
18_icon_64.png Tristana - Her Q - good attack speed
110_icon_64.png Varus- no steroid
I see everyone is contradicting me on this one, so i'll explain.
A steroid is something you can activate or use whenever u have to/want to to deal huge amounts of damage. His passive "steroid" can only be used after killing someone or something, that requiring that somebody dies in that team fight at the start of it. Most late game ganks and team fights are in the jungle or around the baron/dragon, so there will be no minions around to kill for passive. Also, most good players don't die in a team fight when it starts. Yes, they get focused and bursted hard but good players don't allow you to 1 shot them and they back with low hp.
Now please tell me what steroid does Varus have if they back 1 by 1 and nobody gets killed in the team fight.
81_icon_64.png Ezreal - His passive
119_icon_64.png Draven - When in dual blades mode
42_icon_64.png Corki - HIs machinegun. E
104_icon_64.png Graves - His E, attack speed
15_icon_64.png Sivir -Her W
29_icon_64.png Twitch - His ultimate
67_icon_64.png Vayne -her ultimate
21_icon_64.png MF -Her W, attack speed

So.. What steroid does caitlyn have?
Her passive activates every 6 hits only
Her Q is a poke/burst spell
Her W is a control spell
Her E is an escape mechanism
Her R is a chase/kill/burst spell.

So Caitlyn has no steroid right? Wrong! Her steroid is the bush. If you are positioned in a bush in team-fights, you get 1 2 Headshot, 1 2 Headshot. That means: 150% in the third hit, an average of 116% damage per hit that can crit!.

LATE GAME CAITLYN


Scaling:

Caitlyn's spells scale incredibly well in late:

her Q:  PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 20 / 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 (+ 130% AD)

her R: PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 250 / 475 / 700(+ 200% bonus AD)

What is late game about?

AD late game means staying alive and doing as much damage as possible. But first, STAYING ALIVE.

Why is Caitlyn a beast late game? Because she has the best set of skills meant to kite, escape and assassinate out of all the AD's. 

How many times did u find yourselves flashing while playing AD to get that last hit onto the running ad/ap/w/e which has 1 hp, and then got insta-focused and died? I know.. lots
Caitlyn doesn't need that, she has her ultimate for it, she has her q for it, she has her 650 range for it.

Also, how many times did a bruiser (irelia lets say) jump to you(as AD) and insta finish you? Many times, i know.
Cait doesn't care about that, she just calmly places a trap onto the bruiser, then E's back and kites the shit out of him.

So, we just decided that Cait has the possibility to stay alive more than the rest of the ad's. And staying alive means winning the game. 

You will ask: Yes, but what about the damage? Isn't Kog better?

Kog has a lot more damage than Cait, yes, but this new patch underpowers Kog because of the new madreds, Blade of the ruined king 3153_32.png, that is available to all the ads, now granting good stats at a low price.

The new set of items can make out of any ad a great damage dealer. And since cait has the most escapes and kiting solutions , why would you chose another AD to do the perfect job? :P

I hope this cleared out some dilemmas, i wish you all the best and a Merry Christmas!
