Intro

Hey my name is the goofball or tehgoofball on Na servers. (i also play on un tonto gringo in LAN) i am a currently platinum ranked support main an I HAVE CRACKED THE CODE OF KAT SUPPORT!!!

I swear it works!


Guide Top

Summary

Kat support is the MASTER of enemy baiting with a ton of mobility and high base damages kat support can single handedly bait the enemy team into an unsuspecting death march.
SS is free ward jumps allowing you to bait enemy ulti's and everyone subconsciously focuses Kats just bc of how much damage they usually do even though you build tanky. you can get your adc to AA the enmies for free as they focus you as you R or are sitting in Zhonyas ect.

Pros / Cons

Pro:

    Damage
    plays like solo lane - farm
    mobility
Cons:
    countered by every support
    Hard early
    Skill required late
    team reliant
    need rylais to function

Early game

Early game worst game as i always like to say; Kat sucks early and nothing can change that. start Q and keep poking the enemy with your bouncing knives until they start crying. level 3 you can do the typical Q-E-W combo and walk away with the movement and damage reduc. but ideally you are poking and warding until level 6.

when the level 6 is attained wait until the enemy misuses one of their CC abilities and then go ham. your base damage on R is enough to win you most engages and if you get interrupted keep attempting to contribute as long as possible. use the resets if you get them. if you die /all wurf

Mid game

ooh baby here we go.
build towards rylais its the only way you get consistant CC even if its ****ty from your oly AoE you still need dat **** so buy it
then you get a resist item, usually Zhonyas bc of active + resists and it helps you with the baiting.get your tower try to get drags and if you are losing you will probably lose hard but its ok bc you can surrender at 20 minutes bc your team will ***** at you.
after you get some drags you go mid and the baits will ensue.
walk too far forward and ward-jump back to safety. this can bait basically every skillshot because people are really dumb, trust me. when you do go in zhonyas will slow everyone to help them follow up and generally you will get focused and die but your team can follow up SOOOOO easy it unreal.

L8 game

Notes

this will probably only work in blind pick vs gold or lower, but if you can pull it off more power to you. you the man gurl, you the man.
