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.
PICK HEAL

Runes

Back to Top ▲
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.

I prefer 21/2/7 because i don't like diving into the utility tree more than necessary, and because the mana regen is now tier 1, there is no need for that. The extra mana reg and reduced damage works great for me.

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.

Start With
Core
Situational

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

She is the leblanc of adcs, she is very good early but just falls too hard to be viable you have to win early or the other adc will catch up and you will lose.

Your guide looks really nice, seems like there was alot of thought put into it. I was just wondering, why not take Exhaust at all? Sometimes it saves my life... also, your item section is sorta confusing, maybe if you clean it up a bit, it could look more appealing :3
3
2 years ago
That's a great question. Exhaust is taken mainly for the enemy ad, in a team fight you will want to use that exhaust asap on him. As you are also an AD, you will almost never reach the other ad in time, you will be most likely be on the opposing side of him, and you won't be able to exhaust him.

If you take exhaust, it will be great for you, but not for your team. Your support won't be able to pick exhaust, because you can't have a botlane with 2 exhausts lol xd, so he'll be forced to take heal, and your team will not be able to stop the enemy ad.

Also, the only thing that exhaust will help you with is kite a bruiser, and you don't need that on cait, you can kite him easily.

I hope you find my answer helpfull, thank you for the positive feedback :P . I'll try to work on my items section

Definitely my favorite Cait guide
I really want to know your thoughts about Runaan's in a main build (probably rushing BT+Runaan's) since Cait gets headshot procs three times faster with it also that 70% AS... isn't it worth it?

What to do against Olaf?I always have this problem when playing AD Carries (my solution was to play with ghost or play Tristana).If you'll answer this ,you should definetly put it in the other guides.

If he has ghost, possition yourself in team fights near a wall or a texture smth then flash or E over the impassible terrain and he won't have what else to do but to quit chasing.

If he has flash, get GA asap.

This guide feeds you lies.

Cait's late game is where she falls off, and not where she shines. -.-

If you knew a little fragment of this game called LOL, you would have known that next to kog and trist, there is no other ad with this kind of range in-game. Kog has no mobility, tristana has no kiting ability. Cait has them both + an incredible proc -Headshot WHICH CAN CRIT itself.

My friend, an affirmation needs an explanation. U got none. Please gtfo, haters are not welcome.

Heh, so basically, since you know I'm right, you decide just to resort to mudslinging at me, and calling me a "hater" because I point out the truth.

I refrained from down voting this guide, because I wanted to hear what you had to say about my claim first. Now, realizing you have nothing substantial to offer in rebuttal, I shall proceed to down vote this guide.

Good day to you sir.

How childish are you? I just explained to you why you are wrong and why cait is great in late-game.

And i know you are a hater, otherwise you would have posted a decent and polite question, like : "HI. Why do you say cait is good in late-game? Because i don't really think she is ", but no, you started with an acuzation.


Guys like you ruin our LeagueOfLegends experience, please don't play anymore.
