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 guys , This is my first guide ever. I am making this guide for players who want to be a BOSS with kat. I have looked at other guides on Kat, but none of them really are 100% correct. Some through in AP an AD items which isnt the way to go. She should be played just AP if you are building her like that , then you are so wrong. I have played Kat for a long time , she is my favorite champion by far , and my best!I have tryed alot of things on Kat i have tryed many other builds on Mobafire ,but none of them really get it. They arent good at the point of Late game terms. So i hope my guide helps you league of legend players.
Pros an Cons
Pros are No mana ! Great cooldowns. Shunpo. A mutli target ultimate. Good chaser. Not hard to learn.Amazing good late game farmer. Great ganker. Cons not a great farmer eraly on.Tends to get CCed alot and focused A LOT if not careful.
How kat is...
Katarina can carry a team and can be a huge threat so you probaly will get focused,but this with this guide you will stay alive. Kat can offer alot to a team fight or a great lane parnther. So in order to carry a team you have to start off good. So your first item Alot of people say go with dorans ring at the start , but boots of speed and three health pots will do just fine. So at the start take your boots of speed health pots and focus on first blood. So your first items are easy to help you on later in the game ,plus to stay in the lane.
First trip back
Your first trip back if you are doing well you should try to get your mejai's soulstealer, but if you didnt have the best start or bad farm then just take your amplifying tone. So getting that will be a okay just try to get it the next time . So you get first blooded on , then take it easy the game isnt offer just yet. Just dont fed an you will be alright.
Early Game Items
So your first items are your boots of speed and three health pots,and your mejai's soulstealer so after your soulstealer you need to get your upgraded boots. So those items are good early game.
Mid Game Items
After you get your early game items,you start to move in to your mid game items. Your first mid game item is a rylai's crystal scepter. I mean you need to rush this item quick as you can. Then grab a rabadon's deathcap becuase these items you can usually get pretty quick if you have a good game or you can get it about 20 minutes in. So these items are good mid game items.
Late game items
Late game items are to finish your build. A void staff is good cause it offers magic pen and even more AP to make you OP. Your zhonya's hourglass can help you alot too by AP and a good item overall.If a game last long sell a hourglass or void staff . To get a rabadon's deathcap. So these are your last items in the build.
Runes and masteries
Take the magic pen marks.Which helps early game and help with void staff. The health seals for late game so you arent that low on health. The cooldown reduction pre level for glyphs for even lower cooldowns. Either the cooldown qints or the AP qints either will do. Your masteries for not that low on hp early game. Because the AP mastries arent worth it because qints and items are gonna help on AP.
The cooldown boots or the magic pent. Well kat has good cooldowns but with the runes and passive it will make the cooldowns amazing. The magic pent boots i dont think are that good because the masterie and void staff help with that and cooldowns are a better choice.
The top would be ignite ,flash,exhaust. Ignite helps for first blood. Flash for getting away. Exhaust is all around the best summoner spell. So it is really your choice.
Skills on Kat
Your E shunpo is really op can get you in the fight or get you out of the fight so a free flash. You want to put a point into it every chance you get Your Q is your knife which hits a couple targets so max it second.Your W is a abiliy which helps your shunpo by taking less damage after it and your knife by cutting of healing by 50%. Finally your utlimate a really good utlimate hits multi target ultimate hits up to three champions. If you kill someone then her passive kicks in and takes 15 seconds on your cooldown
Your job is to use your W then use your E to jump in and pop utlimate this combo should win the fight most of the time.So just use your utlimate in the team fight. Try to get alot of kills to help carry. So play with friends and talk about the fight when and when not to go . Do this an you should win alot and in the fight too.
Guys just follow my guide for kat and you should be alright. It may take awhile but you will be good eventually just follow my guide to be the best. Kat is a great champion so try her out she is worth it. Best of luck guys thanks for reading leave a comment below if any questions . Have a good game dont fed
