A few words

I do not want to bother you with a clearly written build description.
I just want to give you an example for how to play this character.
So watch the Runes, Masteries, Skills and Items and try to play your own way.

Skill Sequence ATTENTION

The skill sequence above is all wrong.

Skill Bouncing Blades first, followed by 1 point in Shunpo.
Max your Bouncing Blades first your Shunpo second


Guide Top

Runes

I took Magic Penetration in Marks
For Seals I chose Health
My Glyphs are Cooldowns
The Quintessences are Movement Speed


Guide Top

Masteries

My masteries are 9/21/0 with focus on Ability Power Magic Penetration and Cooldowns in Offense and Dodge Chance Reduced Damage and Health in Utility

Items

Start with Boots of Speed and three health potions. Next item is Mejai's Soulstealer. After Mejai's you go for your Ionian Boots of Lucidity and start creeping gold for Rylai's Crystal Scepter. Your fourth item is Hextech Gunblade which will make Katarina and awful pain for your enemies. Get Rabadon's right after. The last item is Banshee's Veil.

I summed up the correct purchase order for a better overview:

- Boots of Speed + 3 health potions
- Mejai's Soulstealer
- Ionian Boots of Lucidity
- Rylai's Crystal Scepter
- Hextech Gunblade
- Rabadon's Deathcap
- Banshee's Veil
