Well for popular demand i am making an AD build for kat. Yes i use it now and then, yes it's ALRIGHT, but AP blows it out of the water. I will use the one played by Dimitrija but remixed a bit. *dimitrija now uses my build :)*


ATTACK vs. AP *READ BEFORE READING BUILD DONT GIVE ME THUMBS DOWN*

Attack Bonuses: Your ranged damage is increased because your thrown dagger does more damage. Also, your hits slow, but your skills dont. The damage output is less then AP

AP: DEFINITELY, WITHOUT a DOUBT better than attack, but takes more skill to be played. On ap you can slow on every skill, your shunpo is a 800 DMG nuke, and your ulti drops enemies/slows like nothing. Also, AP gives your more health and more of an ability of saving yourself *zonya's ring*. Don't give me thumbs down because this is not an AP build.

MY AP BUILD CAN BE FOUND HERE http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/katarina-shunpo-that-705

Spells:

Exhaust: Slows people down for your ult.. ESPECIALLY necessary when you dont have the rylais from AP build.
Ignite: Helps you get that essential first kill then finish certain enemies off who got out of your ult since you cant catch up *no slow*

Early Game:

So, for your first item in this situation now, you want to pick up boots of speed firstand 2 health potions
With attack builds, and actually even the AP build. Laning does work well nowadays, even though i still prefer solo.

The next item you want to rush is the Sword of the Occult
Katarina's ability to use shunpo for early kills, in a combination with her dagger, makes her a very versatile early game nuker. You will stack this up pretty fast.

Next, you want to turn your boots into sorcerer's shoes.

*PEOPLE PEOPLE. you will say, WHY sorcerer's shoes?! well. your ultimate is magic damage hell, all of your skills are damage, even if you go attack, so naturally, you want the penetration on your ultimate, end of story :) this was mine AND dimitrija's counter to the first nerf she got (you couldnt really counter the 2-3rd one).*

Great! Now you should have 4-5 kills with hopefully little or no deaths and heading into mid game

Mid Game:

Mid game is all about rushing BF Swords, you have space for 4 of them, get a phage firstthen 3 B.F. Swords. Turn 1 sword into an infinity edge*you want the chance to crit on the autoattack after the shunpo*

then go for two bloodthirsters to stack attack
