Introduction

This build is focused on maximizing AP for Katarina, certainly it requires a certain knowledge of the hero and the ability to get some Mejai stacks early in the game, guaranteeing late game pwnage. If you can mid, this will help a lot, gank early game for some stacks, and if you have an easy mid opponent, feel free to Killer Instincts>Shunpo>Death Lotus and use ignite if necessary.

Runes

Standard Magic pen runes for any AP champ, some health runes for survivability and of course some force runes for augmenting your AP throughout the game.

Items

Your item build can be a bit flexible depending on the game. Sometimes I would get Will of the Ancients instead of Hextech Gunblade. Ionian boots of lucidity is indispensable for Kat. Rylais is the ultimate ganking weapon, coupled with Void staff you got yourself some firepower. Work on Meijais,with full stacks, by the time you get Rabbadon's youll have near to 900 AP, Shunpo>Death Lotus is a guaranteed kill against most assasins, fighters and mages.

Skill Sequence

The skill sequence shown is preferably for mid, if you are laning top or bot alternate Shunpo and Bouncing Blade.

Summary

Basically thats it, enjoy, play well, gank as much as you can!


[*] Early Mejai
[*] Rylai's = gank
[*] Remember to but pots late-game for increased damage
