Introduction

This build is a reflection of my experience playing Katarina. Your role as Katarina is to do a lot of damage and do it fast, as well as have your

Runes

For runes I like to use 9x Greater Mark of Insight in order to avoid purchasing any magic penetration items early on and still being able to produce high damage numbers. I use 9x Greater Seal of Resilience to build up strong defense against any AD Melee or Ranged carries, even with a good laning partner harass can be a challenge. I use 3x Greater Quintessence of Potency for 15 early AP making your http://edge4.mobafire.com/images/ability/katarina-shunpo.png and http://edge4.mobafire.com/images/ability/katarina-death-lotus.png a dangerous combo to deal with. 5x Greater Glyph of Force give you a strong level 4 - 6 strength on your http://edge4.mobafire.com/images/ability/katarina-shunpo.png, which is your main source of damage. I feel that 4x Greater Glyph of Focus give you just the cool down reduction to give you the advantage you need.

Masteries

Katarina makes no use of the majority of the Utility tree, so I see there being no reason to put points into it. For the Offense tree you need only to get the ability cool downs and ability penetration masteries for a damage boost. This leaves us with 21 points to put into the Defensive tree.
