The Basics of AP Katarina

Hello there summoners, the seaninator11 here!

One of my favorite champions is Katarina and I thought I would show you all how to play her to perfection. Ive been using this build recently and out of all the builds I have used with kat, this one seems to be the best, considering the last like 20 games on Katarina Ive gone over 10 kills and under 3 deaths using this build.

I start boots and pots for the increased mobility at the start of the game can increase your harrass. The combo I use is q(bouncing blades), then immediately e(shunpo) to the target and when my q hits, I w(sinister steel), to activate the mark for the extra damage that my q brings. If you can perfect this combo, nobody counters you.

Once you hit level 6, use the same combo but add your R(death lotus) to increase your damage dealt.
**CAUTION** DONT DIVE INTO THE FIGHT IMMEDIATELY, EVEN THOUGH YOUR GUNBLADE WILL GIVE YOU SPELL VAMP, ITS NOT ENOUGH, AND ALSO THEY WILL BURN THERE KNOCKBACK, STUN, KNOCK UP SPELLS, ETC. IF THEY USE THOSE SPELLS ON YOU WHEN YOU ACTIVATE DEATH LOTUS, YOUR TEAM WILL ALMOST ALWAYS LOSE THE FIGHT AS YOU MAIN DAMAGE COMES FROM YOUR RESETS.

I max my w on Kat because it increases you farming potential and if you land your combos right, you will deal tons more damage. I actually used to max my q for the harass, but then I watched one of Scarra's Katarina games, and he explained really well how maxing your w makes Kat a much better champion.

I hope you enjoyedmy guide and good luck in the fields of justice!
