Why?

Utilising these items and gaining the above skills in this order allows for very high AP damage and some nice added cooldown reduction.

Introduction

Katarina is not a great early game farmer. Luckily for us, this is not a problem in Dominion game types. Starting at level 3 and with the extra cash eliminates pretty much the only 'Con' Katarina has in my opinion. Take advantage of this and you can do well early game late game and, you guessed it, late game. Dropping multiple enemies before they even know what's hit them.

Masteries

Gone with a simple 9/21/0 here. Grabbing extra AP and Cooldown Reduction.

Items

Boots of Lucidity are so useful for Katarina to start with as you can hunt down any target that flees and guarantee yourself some early kills with Shunpo. Most of the other items are pretty bog standard AP items. I threw Morello's Evil Tome in their for the 20% cooldown reduction. You will realise this to become an absolute godsend when you can Shunpo/Death Lotus your enemies to an early grave in a shorter elapsed time.

Summoner Spells

Ghost is optional but I highly recommend it. The extra speed will allow you to catch up to fleeing appoints and net that extra kill, or flee from that life and death situation when Cho'Gath is about to destroy you.

Exhaust is the more offensive spell here which can be used to stop opponents fleeing. or just lower their damage input for a few valuable seconds while you finish them off and remain alive.
