Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Introduction & Video
So I was playing Katarina alot lately, especially in Domionion because she rocks in there. So I decided to create a guide to let you see how good she is.
Proof Proof; Here's a full gameplay video:
Pros / Cons
- Tons of dmg
- Escape spell: Shunpo
- Aoe spell: Death Lotus
- Fast cooldowns
- Good a ganking
- No mana
- Easy to play
- Moves pretty quick
- Not so great before lvl 6
- Kinda weak health before Rylai's Crystal Scepter
I use this when 1vs1 and he seems to be a bit stronger. And this is a nice spell if someone tries to escape.
Noticed alot of players use this spell in Dominion? Well not so weird because it's nice to have some speed when they are stealing your turrets. And you can use it for escaping also.
Is good for escape yea, but since you are with your teammate defening an turret together you dont acually need this alot because if youre on low health you can just use shunpo on an ally to get away.
If you want them, mkay
If you get CCed, this is usefull.
Ignite is for the ''finishing touch'' on enemys, but since you have shunpo, I recommend the other spells more
Your passive. Gives gold for kill or assist $_$!
+ It reduces your cooldowns by 15 seconds. Yay so you just keep on killing. kill kill more gold yay.
Your Q. Throws a dagger to the location and it bounces between champions & minions.
You can use this to kill minions faster. But most of the time you don't have time for that because you need to kill enemy champions, I always use this when the champion who was 1vs1 me is low health and tries to run away, and my shunpo is under cooldown, I simple trow a dagger and death he is. ;D
Your W. Gives a bonus effect on your Q & E.
I always use this when feeling like ganking an enemy. I use it, run towards enemy, shunpo, Death lotus, use it again, and throw dagger. He should be death now. hehe.
Your E. Moves to target location which can be an enemy, ally or a minion.
On an enemy it deals alot of dmg so use this alot.
On an ally or minion is usefull to escape when low health.
Your R. AOE ULTIMATEEEEEE. TONS OF DMG. WITH LOW COOLDOWN. do you even want more?
W > E > R > W > Q
This is what you use to gank those enemyssssss. They should be death death death.
And if they aint, just shunpo again. Heheee.
Team work is necessary in Dominion. Especially when defending a turret. You can use Death lotus to keep the enemys from the turret and when allys arrive you shunpo to kill them all!
When the turrets seem save you can walk around kill enemys and capture turrets. You should be fine with 1vs1 when using the above skill combo. Remember that your Death Lotus hits up to 3 enemy champions, so if they are really squishy you could take more then 1 to kill alone.
We're done for now.
This was my first guide that I made, not that much information, maby I will add some more later if you like. Hope you did enjoy reading and hope you can use it to improve your gameplay with Katarina in Dominion.
