Not Updated For Current Season
This guide has not yet been updated for the current season. Please keep this in mind while reading. You can see the most recently updated guides on the browse guides page.
So let's get to it, in laning phase you should poke with your q and if you can walk towards your enemy and w him so you get your q's prock off. You should not e on him because you it's your only escape and you'll maybe die if you get ganked, if your sure that their jungler isent close to mid and their bot and top is in lane you can q-e-w and run away since your w gives you movent speed when hiting an enemy with it for a short time. If you get 1 or more kills after you recall buy Soulstealer but just if your gonna roam since it's useless if you dont get kills prettt fast. Be sure to also not die since you will lose 50% of your stacks on your Soultealer. If you are vs an ap and dont got any kills before you recall buy "Abyssal Scepter" and if your vs an ad buy hourglas.
For your runes you should get: 3 Movement Speed Quintessences, 9 Armor Seals, 9 Magic Resist Glyphs and 9 Magic Pen Marks.
The build you want to use for katarina is: Hourglas, Magic pen boots, Deathcap, void staff, Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Liandry's Torment. If someone in their team is SUPER fed you should skip Liandry's Torment and buy armor or magic resist or G.A.
Pros / Cons
Pros: Very good AOE, escape and gap closer and good roamer.
Cons: If you just can get in 1 cc on her while she's ulting she's dead. If you dont get some kills you cant do a ****.
If you got something like Malphite and Leona in your team, Katarina would be awesome since Malp can ult into their team and same with leona and they cant cc or kill you so you can just kill everyone in their team.
