Introduction

Why choose her as AP carry?

Katarina has more pros than cons,and her ulti can do so well that it can turn the table around(if farmed properly in early game). She can Out-Play almost any AP Carry.
Well done for introducing her. Now to me! Hello! I had played League Of Legends for almost a year now. And in this guide(which is my first) I will show you how I play my style of Katarina.

Pros / Cons

Pros

+That Burst
+Late game carry
+High Mobility
+DAT BOOBS
+NO MANA!
+Can easily PentaKill if played properly

Cons
-Paper health during early game
-Stuns,Airborne and snare will stop her ulti

Why hybrid instead of AP?

Katarina has low cooldown, but this doesn't mean that everytime when you use your Q,E,W,R would secure a kill. That extra bit of AD would help ALOT in her early game, including last hitting of minions.

Farming

LAST HIT LAST HIT LAST HIT!
Every CS you get from last hitting, counts. If your enemy Champion comes too close to you, or if you're in range, use your Q to deal some damage to him. But if you see a minion with low health and the enemy champion infront of you, use your Q to hit the minion, then if the enemy champion still wont back off, and you have more than half the amount of HP left, fight back.
*Playing as Katarina, you have to know how much your enemy champion can trade damage with you at almost every level*

Summoner Spells

Why take ignite and flash instead of others?
Flash : To escape / get in team fight
Ignite : To secure a kill or some of you might say KS

Why not others?
First, you cant take Smite, because Jungling Katarina would be a troll game.
Revive? If your summoner level is below 10
Clarity? YOU DON'T HAVE MANA!
Heal? You don't really need it unless you're a ADC.

Skill Sequence

Skills sequence would be Q,E,W,R.
It's very simple, Q for the extra damage that you will deal with your next skill. E for the 3 second reduced incoming damage. W is like a smaller version or R. And R is your ulti.

End

This is my guide, hmm ,though i dont really know how to use Mobafire.com, and i dont really know how they insert the skills and items in each chapter, any comments weather good or bad would be appreciated. Pardon my spelling mistakes, I'm from Singapore. Kat should be nerfed. :) GlHF!
