Introduction.

YO! Introduction: BREAK THE META-KATARINA.
Katarina is an op champ early game and can be used in many places...... HUEH UEHUEHUHEUHEUEHUE
For haters: Don't hate. First time. Judge me. Gimme CONSTRUCTIVE feedback. I COULD DO BETTER THAN THIS.


Guide Top

Why is Katarina bot?

Because champions at bot are quite squishy, supports easy to kill etc. (adcs do absolutely like no dmg at lvl 1-6)
(Does well with an annie or yasuo, crowd control camps at best. Kat gets kills, usually.

How to play/Farm

If you play well you wont need any ganks (like any other champ).(ganks are the jungler applying pressure to the lane, incase you didn't know!)Leveling your q first gives you the poke advantage. Poke minions (kill) and champs. Bouncing blades is very handy for farming unlike Akali's q. The blades bouncing means that if you time it right u can get a number of minion kills by not even standing next to it. BECAUSE IF YOU DID, THE ADC WOULD POKE YOU TO DEATH.


Guide Top

SHUNPO!!!!

E is used after using q. Very handy, kat is quite mobile with her e and w. Over a wall, shunpo over with a ward. Handy for escaping but it doesn't out-range jax's jump or lee-sins. (I THINK)


Guide Top

How to use ZHONYAS!

WHEN UNDER TURRET: Throw q at your opponent shunpo to them then press ult. I find w better for chasing.
OR
Kat vs Kat: when she's ulting just use zhonyas to avoid the bomb of ability power. THEN BAM. YOU KILL HER. (better if she ain't got zhonyas or already used it)


Guide Top

Team Fights:

You'll probably want to initiate them since your ult does damage to 3 foes. Unless they have cc. If you're good enough they'll try to run. When they try to run keep on harassing them with your q and e and your w to chase. then ult. (eg annie when u stuns you then go for the ult. Yasuo when he sends his whirlwind dodge it then ult. Jarvan IV: once you've ulted flash out since J4 probably has ulted you. (walls). Only initiate if they aren't doing well or if they dont have any tanks, stuns around or if your tank will initiate.


Guide Top

NEXUS!

Open nexus then buy a lot of phantom dancers. BAM. WIN. Last option (your adc sucks).


Guide Top

Why max q first?

E.G when jax jumps of you've probably tried to toss your q for some dmg. 3 seconds after the jump you get a kill because q is your only ranged attack. Possibly you didnt throw it and you're just wondering around. Ah well. Choice is yours.

SUPPORTS

Yasuo. Good cc and you can ult while he is ulting
Annie. Good stun
THATS ALL I'VE TRIED.<3
