Introduction

Hi!

This is my first build, it's a really basic one with not that much information. Before buying Katarina i never went mid because it was pretty boring for me and I tend to play really agressive so I usually got results like 0/7 and my team mates weren't happy about it. This changed radically when I played Katarina after her re-work, she is pretty mobile thanks to shunpo and Sinister Steel so I could harass a lot the enemy and play really agressive without dying a lot. After playing a lot of games with her I tried going solo-top with a tanky build and it really worked! You should try it at least once because I find it really fun to play.

I hope you find this mini-guide useful.

Items

CORE



This items will give you all what you need to bully almost all Ap carries, sustain thanks to the spell vamp and health, a lot of magic pen that thanks to your runes and masteries will be almost 50 and some AP.

LATE GAME



I love this two items, I think that they are the best items for teamfights because of the CC that gives rylai's and the tankiness and passive that gives guardian angel that thanks to katarina's mobility, it will save your *** many times.

LAST ITEMS


Replace for or

I usually get reabadon's as last item and then i replace Hauntin Guise for abyssal escepter if none of my team mates has it and if they do I get void staff.

Abilities

I usually max out first Bouncing Blades then Sinister Steel and last Shunpo, take a point early on Shunpo for scaping, ganking or chasing and use Sinister Steel to activate the passive from Bouncing Blades.

BASIC COMBO

Bouncing Blades --> Shunpo --> Sinister Steel

I use this combo almost for everything. Farming, harassing, etc. You can also use Death Lotuse in the moment you want to secure a kill.


Guide Top

Runes and Masteries

I use my standart AP runes for Katarina which include flat AP for early game harass, flat magic penetration that is amazing with Liandry's Torment and Abyssal Scepter, flat armor and magic resistance for not being so squishy.

For masterries I take 21-9-0 focused on dealing the maximum magic damage.
