Well, first of all, to play as Katarina Ap Nuker you have to ask for mid.
"Mid mine" is the key!
And your team maybe will say: "No, Dinger mid." or "No, Annie mid."
Then you grab your Boots of Speed and your Potion and go anyway.
Early Game:
Well, if mid is the key, Shunpo is the key hole. You have to Shunpo everything and everyone of them. Like, in level 1, your Shunpo must take like 1/5 of your victim's health, and have a HUGE range. After that you will have Bouncing Blades and a target with 1/2 of his health. Shunpo+Bouncing Blades+Ignite should be enought to take him down. Grab your Mejai Soulstealer and say "Hello" to mid game.
Mid Game:
Katarina is a very good ganker, Shunpo is great for you to approach your victim's and deals a great damage; and if you need, it is a great escape too.
In mid game you have to collect Soul Engorgment Stacks and as soon as you can notice, you will rock squishies hard.
After level 11 or 12, Death Lotus will be at level 2 which means it hits 2 targets, and you will have Rylai's Crystal Scepter, so...
Late Game:
Katarina is very deadly in late game, she can approach quickly and move away fast.
If you have a Morgana with Black Shield or a Kayle with Intervention will be great to assist your kills. Use this combo:
1-Killer Instincs
2-Shunpo (Approach + Damage)
3-Bouncing Blades
4-Death Lotus (Try to hit the most targets as you can, she rally does great damage.)
5-Ignite (To ensure the kill)
6- Hextech Gunblade (To REALLY ensure the kill.)

Hextech Gunbalde is a really good item for Katarina, cause of its spell vamp.


And always remember, Katarina's passive skill, Voracity, reduces your cooldown by 15 everytime you kill a unit. Thats a really huge help, cause you can approach with Shunpo+Death Lotus to easy kill a unit, and then Shunpo out, to avoid the gank.


Well, thanks for you, who are reading, and thumbs for me if you like it; and if you dont, leave your comment so I can improve.
Thats it. Hope you enjoy Katarina, cause
VIOLENCE SOLVES EVERYTHING!
