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.

For some reason the stats arnt adding up! Here they are ish : 605 AP, 40% C

ABOUT KATA


So ye... Im not amazing at LoL. But this build has done me well! Ive been getting 20ish kills on games I have lost, and 30-40 (40 is my new PB) on one I have one! Im level 15, so cant tell you much about runes and masteries, so sorry about that. I will add them in later!

Katarina is amazing at kill stealing... But I wouldn't... People will get seriously pissed off... She is not a tank, she is a dps! So my main tip with kata, is get them when they are low. Kata can take most champions within a matter of seconds, if they are on around half health, when they are buy themselves. And Seriously! Emphasis on 'a matter of seconds'! Because she can deal so much damage so quickly, she is great for entering combat on low health, most opponents cant even get a hit on kata before they are dead... if you can play her properly...

Also here is how I normally sequence my moves: Q, E, W - R. Bouncing blades increase the damage you deal the enemy for the next few seconds. This means that it is great to start with. I often find myself using E a lot to escape too! You can use this on any monster or champion, wether it is an enemy or allied, you just wont deal damage to allied! It is great for teleporting out of combat xD

About the Passive: When kata gains a kill or an assist all her spells cooldown reduce by 15 seconds. This means that all her normal spells are instantly refreshed, and her ultimate (around 50 seconds cooldown) is also reduce by 15 seconds. This build allows you to have 40% (max) cooldown reduction (CDR). So when you get a double kill with kata, you can instantly use her ultimate again... Imagine that... teleporting inbetween two champions... kill them both using your ulti... then using your ulti again! OP right? Ye...
