Introduction

Hello. This is my guide for full AP Katarina. In this guide there are many things that i found to be helpful when playing Kat. I hope you find this useful and like it if you do. Thanks.


Guide Top

Runes

I chose these runes because Katarina is a full AP bursty person. She can kill someone very quickly with a deadly combo, so I think she works best with a lot of AP and magic pen.


Guide Top

Masteries

These masteries are very useful for Kat because she is AP but has no mana or energy. So these are good for her because she uses similar, but still different, to most AP champions.


Guide Top

Items

These items are mostly AP and gives you spell vamp, because your abilities will do a lot of damage so you will see constant healing. Everything else is just for you to stay on the enemy and deal damage.

Maximizing Your Damage(single target)

When engaging an enemy solo, 1v1, you should open up with a Bouncing Blade and a shunpo to deal quick damage and get on your target. Next pop your ultimate and channel until they get out of range, if they run, and then either auto attack them a bit for damage or shunpo to them and auto attack. always use your Killer Instincts for reduced damage after a shunpo. Use your bouncing blades whenever you can and try to stay in range of shunpo at all times.


Guide Top

Maximizing Your Damage (team fight)

In a team fight you should always open wit ha shunpo on the squishiest person or the person in the middle of everyone else. Then you want to use your ulti to damage everyone down on their team, followed by a killer instincts and bouncing blade for full damage and reduced healing on everyone. if they aren't dead by then shunpo to either damage or kill enemies and when they start to die just spam shunpo and bouncing blade because the CD will reset.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

The order which i chose for the skills is because shunpo has your lowest cool down and wil be dealing the most damage. this is why you max it out first and follow with bouncing blade. Killer instincts doesn't do any damage so I max it out last.

Summoner Spells

These spells are good for most AP champions but really helps Katarina in fights and escapes/chases.
