Introduction

Hi guys!I always thought katarina was great character cause she doesn´t have any type of mana and she has one of the smallest cooldowns on the kingdom of LOL(League of Legends).Death Lutus her ultimate is an excellent ultimate against squishy character:
ex.:Teemo,ashe,,evelyn.
Difficult characters against katarina are:
ex.:kennen,jax,mordekaiser(SOMETIMES DIFFIGULT).

Summoner Spells

one of the best spells for katarina isEXHAUST,beacause while usingDEATH LOTUS
you have no problem in thinking your enimies will run and it helps alot protecting your character AGAINST AD!

If you dont like ignite,try choosing flash or teleport...
Thinking about flash,flash combines alot with shungpo and with that your enimies will be almost certainly dead if the enimie champion tries to escape from you,and you can also use it to escape from enimies,but careful never let someone go with on your flash with powers like:
Master yi´salfa strike;
Amumu´sBandage Toss;
Blitzcrank´sRocket Grab;
Lee Sin´sSonic Wave/Resonating Strike;
...

Creeping / Jungling

When jungling the best power is Bouncing blade.
The blue buff is very good to decrease your cooldowns!The ownly problem with this is that katarina has no mana and if you have any other mage in your team leave the blue buff for him!
TO JUNGLE BLUE BUFF LVL1 TELL SOMEONE WHO´S ATACKES ARE RANGED(or someone go has ranged spells) AND ASK THEM TO LEACH(they attack the blue buff golem behind the walls so that you can attack in without loosing health!

Items

I usually buy AMPLIFYING TOME to give me some AP(ability power) so that my shungpo deals much more damage and i easily kill with shungpo because i can always use it to catch enimies!

I never buy dorans shield for katarina because i think i dont need so much health and i prefer to deal damage and be a little more defensive,so that late game i win!

Relys Crystal Scepter is very good for you ulti and for shungpo combining with exhaust!
Its so good that it slows enimies and gives AP and it even gives 500 health for you to survive!If your trying to run away from an enemy you can use bouncing blade to slow them so that you can run away.

Hextech Gun blade is very useful for characters who are ap/ad but more ap because it gives 25% spell vamp to help you gain life for you to use your ulti without dying if an emergency comes!

Ganking

Katarina is great at ganging with her shungpo combinig with her ultimate and using boucing blade to finish the enemy off!

Thinking about this you should use exhaust on the enemy to slow him down and use shungpo then ulti and he´s dead!

Ranked Play

If you´re thinking of playing katarina ranked,go for it.
Katarina is a good rank char cause of her shungpo useful to run and to catch,her bouncing blade is also helpful combinig with killer instincts and ignite.

I havent yet tryed using ignite and bouncing blade with killer instincts but i think that it must stack the 50% healing reduction of killer instincts and the 50% of ingnit´s healing reduction!

But you can certainly think that katarina is a viable character for ranked play again because of her shungpo!

AD vs AP vs Hybrid

Thinking about this mathamatically the items above cost me about 15500 gold and if you go ad it will cost more and be worst,and it wont be so good thinking about your sungpo.If you think your ulti nis better if you go hybrid your right,but all the powers katarina haves tell us that its better not,also becaue she only has one power thats for ad(killer instincts)!

Another thing is that its better ap for your boucing blade and shubgpo so that you dont need to tower dive!
