Threat Champion Notes
2
Quinn Poke her do not stay close or in front of you creeps so that you don't get blinded and if she starts a trade disengage with your E. You can easily zone or kill Quinn pre 6. If she ults on you disengage with E and kite her as much as possible since she is now melee.
2
Twitch Shouldn't be much trouble. Just attack him when he is going to last hit and when he turns invisible. If gets in your face with his Q, disengage with E. Same yields for when he is aiming you with his ultimate.

Introduction

Welcome to my first ever guide ! i am currently in Platin 5 and i have been clawing my way out from Bronze 2. (thanks riot) Soon i will be in Diamond. But i got out of bronze and through Platin by playing AD carry. You will see most of my guides be on bot lane. I'll do Jungle and AD carry's.


Guide Top

Runes

For runes I go with 3 Attack Speed quints. For marks I had 9 damage.This will help getting lane presence. If the support has too low health to help then have a happy time farming and killing! The full armor seals are the best. And full MR Glyphs because it's just the right thing to do.


Guide Top

Masteries

I go with the standard 21/9/0 masteries, Nothing special.

Items

I have tried a lot of different build with caitlyn. Including Static Shiv,BORC, and runnan's hurricane. After trying all of them this build is the safest and over all better build. the phantom dance will let you push lanes much faster and the guardian Angel is just a must for team fights. But, what I have been doing recently is getting a Shiv or a Hurricane early then switching to a GA later in the game. Just a thing to think about.

Skill Sequence

I see a lot of Cait players just completely forget about their W. The W ability is why cait has so much of a lane presence. (yes her rang and poke have a lot to do with it) You will have full control of bushes and you can funnel your enemy's to only going to one spot with your traps. If they want to clear them out then they risk their life, and it should be an easy kill. So just use them wisely. They burn mana fast, so don't over do them. Other than that just max your Q first and you are on your way to victory.

Spells

Normal Flash and Heal. Heal is great in this current meta and Flash is just a must.

Pros / Cons

Pros:


+ Great poke range
+ Traps used to check a bush
+ Nice AA animation
+ Nice ultimate to secure kills
+ Passive damage steroid

Let's say you want to play some solo-queue. Let's say that your main lane is ADC. Caitlyn is a great pick, even if you are the first pick. If you know some mechanics then there really isn't a hard counter to you. This also depends on your support, whether you are a kill/poke/support lane. Caitlyn can poke easily at early levels because of her Headshot and Piltover Peacemaker. Also try to fill the bushes with Yordle Snap Traps to prevent possible jungle ganks. Her ultimate, Ace in the Hole (if you know what I mean) has great range and can help you "secure" kills.
Cons:


- Automatically pushes
- Pretty slow - 325 MS
- Almost no escape tools
- Gets focused down, if not careful
- Ult can be blocked

Caitlyn is an ADC and she has her own strengths and weaknesses. Unlike other ADCs she hasn't really got a reliable escape tool, because her E is insufficient. The only way to survive a teamfight against their bruisers & assassins is knowing when to enter the fight (wait 2-5 seconds so the enemy CC is burnt) and kiting at your best. Her ultimate, Ace in the Hole can be blocked by tanks like Singed to save their carries. As I mentioned before, Caitlyn is really slow compared to other champions, probably because of her big rifle. She is very squishy as well, so be careful !

Team Work

This is more targeted to the ADC role in general. your position is HUGE in fights. Just make sure you use your E to get away from enemy's trying to get you and no matter what if the ADC is in that fight KILL HIM !!! I have videos on my YouTube channel on how to Team fight as an ADC. Go check them out for more information

Farming

Since cait is such a big lane bully. Farming shouldn't be that hard. Since farming is more of a skill thing there isn't that much I can tell you to help you farm better. It is just a thing that the more you do it the better you will get at it. Go into some bot games and work on it there. Try to get perfect CS while keeping the other BOT at half health or lower. BUT DON't kill it.

Conclusion

Thanks for viewing my guide. hopefully you have a better understanding of Caitlyn. If you need any more info on ADC ask me. :)
