Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
When playing kat her abilitys can be a a wepon or a tool of escape shunpo is probably one of her best skills. one thing about kat is SHES NOT MARKED AS A CARRY i often find myself being the carry evan when thers peoppel like ashe or yi.
her runes are pritty obvious she is squishy and i dont like building armor or MR throgh runes becuse conter building is donr in game when you know what youer up agenst. if you use armor runes and all the enemes on the other team are AP its pointless. so get health and AP rune if you want you can also use CDR runes but sens kats CD is alredy low and the runes work off a percentage they wont do much.
masteries are importent becuse you want every edge you can get but unfortenetly i have to put points in things like CDR and armor to get into the skills i want.
At the start of the game i like geting an amplifying tome so my atacks do more dameg and i also buy a health potion for survivability whe nyou get the chance to go B or you unfortunetly die you follow up by buying sorc boots after you have youer boots you need to build a hextex gunblade it gives you 25% spell vamp and 20% life steal to follow it up you want a rylies crystal septer for survivability and to slow enemes next on the list is banshees vail it will keep you from geting youer ult interupted. next you want a rabidons once you get this your ult will mealt health bars with the one remaning space you can counter build with force of natuer or thorn mail if you dont think you need to counter build just get another hextex gun blade for more spell vamp
SHUNPO and other things
shunpo the ability to rule them all when your ability power it is very deadly and thanks to her passiveit can be used to tower dive a champ and take only 2 tower hits at the most as long as you get the kill. if you are low health and or geting chased you can use shunpo on frendly minions,champs,teemo shroms and wards which has saved me countless times per game. killer instincts is an ability that you can use to buff youer bouncing blade or get a 30% reduction in damege when used with shunpo. her ult death loutus will mealt health bars it is best used in teamfights becuse it indipendintly throws 10 blades at each champ which can do up to 200 dameg each so it is veary good for team fights and if you are lvl 18 your ult gets refrshed after 2 kills so you can mop up the left over tanks. bouncing blades is a good ability for killing minions or last hiting minions when built propperly it can take 1/10 of a champs health and can bounce from champ to champ. the best order to use your abilitys is bounceing blades=Q killer instincts=W shunpo=E then finish them with your death loutus=R if your pushing minions to a tower you want to use killer instincts=W then bounceing blades=Q so the damege done by the attack isent reduced by 10% every hit
ingnite and exhust are good for kill securing ive grabed first blood with an ignite kill more then once and exhsust slows them alot to insuer a kill if you team is near
great mobility thanks to shunpo
bouncing blades is good for minion farm
gets focused late game if you do well
ult can be stopped by throws and stuns
when you play kat dubel kills are easy as long as both enemes are low health becuse of kats passive. if you enterinto a team fight wher the enemes are in a tight group shunpo into the middel to make it harde to click on you if you kill two champs keep the ult train runing. if the enemes health is low tower dive with shunpo and bouncing blades then shunpo to nerby minion or champ outsside of tower range
kat is one of my favoret champs and i beleve i know her well sorry about spelling errors i cant spell to save my life and this is my first guide so go easy
