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.
Hello everyone! This is my first serious guide, and with that being said I would like to give you a little information about how I came about LoL and MOBAFire.
I know almost everyone started with DoTA, but TBH I have never played a game of DoTA! I started with HoN ( Heroes of Newerth ) a buddy of mine invited me in the early stages of the beta, and I got hooked since.
After playing literally thousands of games of HoN, it seemed to me it was lacking something, and I thought it could always be so much more. When the game was so called "finalized" ( they just added a price and copied LoL's store ), I handed over the $30 for the game thinking it would soon evolve into more. It did not. I heard of LoL through HoN kids ranting about how stupid LoL is and its community.... and all I have to say is WOW. LoL, in every single way is so much better than HoN, and it was exactly what i was looking for in this genre of games ( with the summoner addition ).
So here I am now, trying to get involed in what seems to be like a good place for some competitive LoL action :D! and what not a better way to start it with what I think is an amazing way to play:
Caitlyn: The Rangeless Mistress!
This guide is going to be different from most AD/AS Champs. With this guide I try to fully utilize her amazing range, Q ablitty, and passive with the addtion of AS, some health and mana regen, and insane splash dmg! I highly recommen trying out this build several times before ranting and downvote if it does not work for you first time around. Figuring out the play style to this build can be somewhat tricky but Ill try to explain what I do so you guys can have a starting point!
Awesome passive to abuse!
Good early/mid game pusher!
With this build, tremndous AoE TRUE DMG!
Skills all have a purpose!
Needs early game farming and last hits are a must!
Heavily relies on teamwork and postioning!
I also know that there are an excessive amount of troller's here....
I say bring them on! ;)
Mark of DesolationArPen pretty straight forward. Works great with rallyas well!
Seal of Alacrity
I get these to make up from the lack of attack speed from not getting Berserker's Greaves. Attack speed works amazing with her passive to get those extra procs in! I feel boots of swiftness are almost a must on her to get her in and out with the Q spams and auto attacks.
Glyph of Clarity
Mana regen is her number one problem, and even though I would like more of it, I feel she gains more from the armor pen and attack speed with her passive and physical abilities.
Quint of Fortitude
This simply to add that little bit of extra health that you really need, makes you look a little more beefy early game ;) lol.
I've thought over mastries alot, and really wanted to go something along the lines of 0/9/21 for the extra health, mana regen and utility. But with this build, 21/0/9 allows you to get attack speed, cool downs, more dmg and a little mana regen and ghost buff from the utility tree.
Since the release of Caitlyn, I've been browsing this site for a build to try out and see what I can do. I've tried AS/Crit to AD/AP, AD/Off tank, and even a burst type build (which was/is my favorite and still play!). After playing close to 25 or so games with this build, its growing on me to be my favorite :) and you will soon see why!
This is the core line up I use. I left 2 remaining spots for situational items, but further down I explain what I like to get. Usually AS and life steal are always nice towards the end, all your dmg output is physical so life steal works well. AS is strictly to get as many passive procs as you can. The more the better and harder you will hit!
Boots of Swiftness
I thought alot about what boots to get with her, and Boots of swiftness just seem to me so much more useful then the extra attack speed ( I havefor attack speed ). The extra movment allows to get in and out quick with Q hits, and to postion yourself for better placement with your ult, espcially with the movment speed gain from phantom dancer!
This is what makes this build work. Her Q, passive, and range abuse this item to the max! It also allows you to get early health and mana regen, which you really need! Once you get 2, your splashing for %75 dmg off of a passive proc because its true dmg! and if you hit a minion on your passive proc, you gain an extra %100 more dmg then you would get from just hitting a champ. With the %75 splash, along with your dmg from your sword, and your Q, and your range you just are a force to be reckoned with!
Sword of the Occult
This is what makes your Tiamat splash effective, and adds a heavy punch to your Q,R, and passive. If you think its a waste, and some games I do, i just get a 3rd Tiamat, or Yummosfor the AS/ArPen/Crit and movment speed buffs. What more could you ask for?
I get this item for mainly the life steal, and attack speed. More attack speed, means more passive procs!! The aura it gives is a nice addition to almost any team.
I hardly ever get the chance to get this item, but when I do its pretty much a done deal at this point! >< The added attack speed, crit, and movement speed work hand in hand with your auto attack range and your getting your passive to proc more!.
