Threat Champion Notes
4
Yasuo Yasuo would have a hard time hitting his Q on you as long as you stay in the right place. His tornado Q is slow, and while he wouldn't expect it, try to jump on him as his 3rd Q runs toward you. Since he doesn't have his Q, he usually can't trade back. Try to stay close to him while you do this but not behind him (closer to his turret) as he could just E away. If he tries to turn on you, dodge his Q and make him E into the wrong places.

Introduction

My IGN is 610Momo and I'm a silver 4 when I'm writing this but from where I wrote "when" I'm actually editing this but I'm keeping the good grammar so it doesn't look like so.

Pros and Cons

AD Kat has much better wave clear with hydra, and since you're AD, you could also split-push. You also benefit from both Armor and Magic Pen. Armor Pen makes your auto-attacks stronger, and Magic Pen makes your spells stronger, meaning you still buy Sorcerer's Shoes. You have strong auto-attacks for finishing off kills after your combo, while in the same situation, AP Kat could only run.
basically AD Kat is amazing
As Kat, you would usually still be very squishy, and CC still counters you pretty hard, even though you don't rely on your ulti AS much. Also, magic resist still counters you, and besides the Magic Pen boots, every other source of Magic Pen has at least some AP in it. AD Kat is still not popular and viable at all, and if you feed, you will likely be salted upon. Unless you're doing well or playing with friends, be sure to type /mute all as soon as you give first blood.
basically AD Kat sucks

Masteries

When I first played AD Kat, I took attack speed masteries. Imo, both cdr and attack speed work for AD Kat, as far as laning goes. If you're playing safe or poking a lot, take cdr. If you're going to zone your opponent out or bullying him, take attack speed.

basically you dont take ap

Runes

For runes I recommend mana regen Reds, mana Yellows, mana blues, and energy regen quints for a full brick cannon build. The quints help you stay in battle without having to go back and rest of the runes call for more spells.

basically you dont take ap

Items

Early game, you want to rush a brutalizer for stats and to build into ghostblade. CDR doesn't really matter for kat, since you'll be getting resets and W, your main attack, isn't affected much from CDR. CDR could be useful early game though, which is why you take it for masteries. Then, immediately get a hydra.

basically you dont take ap
