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.
Caitlyn-The sherrif of piltover
Welcome to my caitlyn guide.Explaining all her basics and how does she works.. And dont be rude this is my 1st build and i will put all effort possible on it.
After a lot of testing on this build i finally decided to post it.
Caitlyn is a ranged carry dps. With a incredible harass early game and a good range, making her a perfect mid or a solo top (Will explain after). She can easily stablish lane dominance and she has great pushing capabilities.
READ THIS BEFORE DOWNVOTE PLS.I STARTED THIS BUILD AT LIKE 3:00 AM AND I STILL NEED TIME TO PUT IMAGES, ADD SOME DESCRIPTION AND SOME INFORMATION. I PROMISE I WILL HAVE THIS BUILD FINISHED IN A FEW DAYS.

Pros / Cons
Insane and crazy harass over early-mid game
90 caliber net is a GREAT scape tool.
Very good pusher.
Very good farm and harass with the HEADSHOT.
Can Use the traps for ward important places.
Insane range on the ult.
Vulnerable to CC
Squishy as ****
Generally focused on team-fights.
Cant rely always on 90 caliber net to scape
Ultimate can get blocked and thats badass Â¬Â¬
I go 21/0/9 taking on the offensive three the basic masteries for deal a sustained damage.And taking on the utility three IMPROVED GHOST,Health regen and mana regen for keep mana up in early game to have a decent harass with Piltover Peacemaker early game and dont get out of mana .And for end i get the bonus exp mastery.
NOTE: U can go 21/9/0 if u feel good that u can keep the mana up and need that little surv. and donde chance
BOTH OF THEM SHOULD BE VERY VIABLE.
Marks: I rush armor pen. this will help a lot your auto attack and piltover peacemaker damage.
Seals: Mana regen per 5 sec. This will make you able to keep your mana up meanwhile you harass a lot.Here you can also get dodge change or other runes if you are having problems with the deaths.
Glyphs: For blue i rush Attack damage x level,this will give you a little boost early game with your auto attack and piltover peacemaker,I will say here the same i said in seals if you feel good with any other choices like mana regen you can also go for it.
Quintessence:I go for the health quint here because gives me a lot of hp early game with the dorans blade and makes me able to stay a lot in lane. Same here you can go for something more deffensive or something offensive like armor pen or etc.
I Pick Ghost Because this: It gives me a good scape abilitie if i get ganked,can switch easily lanes/gank them ,go-in beetwen micro teamfights.can scout enemy jungle etc.
I pick Flash Because this:Same as ghost this with 90 caliber net is a good scape combo,can flash through walls,scape,chase,Overall a very usefull Spell
Cleanse:Not a bad spell u get stuned,FLOOP cleanse and CYA!.very usefull if u feel safe while having this spell.
Exhaust: A very good choise if the enemy team has a lot of phys dps and need that blind to FK in their face.Or simply slow the enemy and Bluum go away with your trap,net combo.
Ignite:I dont use it a lot but a very good spell to finish that Baddies runners and finish them with this spell.
Clairvoyance:Im not a fan of clairvoyance but if u are a pro of clairv pick it. this spell is a mobile ward that can decide a gank or get ganked.The ace Or the fail.
Teleport:This is good for go to that lane and clean that minion wave,switch lanes,help the team in other lanes,Push lanes that are alone.ETC
Cleanse:Not a bad spell u get stuned,FLOOP cleanse and CYA!.very usefull if
NEVER GET THIS ONES
Smite:You arent going to jungle so ,Bye Bye Smite.
Heal:You wont need this man theres better choices.Plus this spell loses it utility in late game.
Rally:Let the tank or the support get it. the same there's better choices for you.
Revive:SRS Â¬Â¬? Dont need to explain.In some builds like HeAt jungle eve build this spell can get some utility but not in this build.
Fortify:Let the tank get it.SAME,THERE'S BETTER CHOICES FOR YOU.
Core item build sequence.
Start with a dorans blade.This will give you a huge bonus early game with the life steal,hp and Attack damage.
