Take the 21-9-0 mastery tree :

    • Take any possible health from the defence tree
      • Why not taking points at Utility?The CD you need is given from your passive

Runes

For runes I recommend:


  • Flat Ability Power Quintessences.
    • Magic resistance Seals, for laning against mages like Lux.
      • Flat Armor Marks, that will secure in case of laning against AD carry, like Vayne.
        • Flat Ability Power Glyphs, I will explain why I choose them instead of the Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power. It is simple - you have weak early game performance, so you need this AP in the start not the end.

Summoner spells

SPACE Flash is an universal spell for Katarina. You can use it 2 ways running and chasing, does great in both situations and it grants you bonus mobility. SPACE [icon=flash size=60

ingnite SPACE ingnite is the anti- lucker spell, that ussualy kills the target. With a champion like Katarina you can use it to boost your damage while channeling your Death Lotus. SPACE ingnite
