Introduction

Hello summoners.

I've been playing and testing AD Kata alot these days. This is what I find the most viable and playable.

In my opinion, AD Kata should focus on movement speed and attack speed. Read on if you are interrested in playing Katarina in a new way!

Cheers x

Runes

As I wrote in a note, go full armor against AD mid/enemy team, and full MR against AP mid/enemy team. Attack speed marks will help you get as many auto attacks off, as possible.

Masteries

Going 21/9/0 is the most viable choice.

Pick health regen in defensive, instead of throwing 1 point in either armor or MR. It will help you sustain a little better early in lane.

Items

Blade of the Ruined King - Gives you attack speed, the active is insanely good when you jump the enemy ADC or mid laner.

Trinity Force - Gives you so many good stats. Yes, you waste the mana stat, but you will get so many other good stats, which makes it worth. The movement speed buff after a kill + your W makes you so hard to rather escape from or catch. Attack speed is a core stat on AD Kata. AP is good too for more damage. AD is of course a core stat too.

Spirit of the Elder Lizard - Gives you cooldown, which is so damn important on Kata. It applies DoT and gives you AD aswell. I would only recommend you to get this item early/mid game.

Zephyr - Cooldown, attack speed, movement speed and maybe the most important thing; Tenacity. It's so good because you dive straight in to enemy team, and are most likely focused or cc'ed down very quick.

The Black Cleaver - Gives you health which is always good, armor penetration and more damage.

Boots of Mobility - I would actually get Merc treads, but you already got the Tenacity from Zephyr, so even more movement speed is just a bonus.
