This is the post-patch build I use. The runes I copied from Elementz, who hinted at this build by stating "Only way to play Kat now is hybrid." (He probably invented it)

Anywho, The runes and masteries are based on defense for survivability.

I chose the following spells: Ghost/Ignite because you won't need exhaust. (Hextech Gunblade's Clicky is 50% Slow which is 10% more then Exhaust.)
So it is basically like having 3 Summoner Spells at your disposal.

Ghost of course is for escape and pursuit. Ignite is to finish those pesky players who manage to get away with a sliver of life left.

The combination for killing with this build is as follows:

Shunpo in + Use Hextech GB Clicky + Begin Death Lotus + Ignite during Death Lotus + Right before the opponent reaches edge of Death Lotus Range, Bouncing Blade them.

A pretty simple straightfoward method of killing. I use it every time I play Katarina, and let me tell you, it has yet to fail me. You might not be able to bring down 3k+ tanks end game with it. But you sure as hell one round any squishies (Dps + Ap Heroes). And the stacking gunblades carries you through the entire game. You only keep gaining more upon more damage. You can kill as soon as you get your first Bilgewater Cutlass after the Hextech-Revolver.

But one you finish your first GB, thats when the rest of the game is downhill.

Note: This build is easily achievable if you have the smallest skill of last hitting creeps.

In a ranked game I gained 24,444 Gold. (Have Screenshot).
I had 4 Hextech Gunblades, Sorc Boots, and Zhonya's Ring.

On average, before the my games end, I have 3 Hextech Gunblades, Sorc Boots, and Banshee's Veil. And I am nowhere near as good as HotshotGG at last hitting creeps. Just max out Bouncing blades first, and they will do the rest.

Hope this guide helps those confused after Kat Nerf/Buff Patch.

Good luck and see you in game!
