Not Updated For Current Season
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.
at first I want to tell you why IÂ´m playing this build. I love to own and kill (pentakill my favorites, ask my mates :p
normal stats are like 27-2-19 or 20-2-8..
Every oponent says that kat is op, but i think its the build that matters. :p
i play her on full hp (except gunblade, i take this because spell vamp and my q and ulti makes a bit more dmg. at 20 stacks i have normally like 800 ap.. that should be enough to kill everything ;) have fun.!
Easy and Hard Midenemies.
- NEARLY EVERYONE!!
- Nidalee (because she can heals every time and you have to wait for your abilites)
Pls, go MID. dont go side lanes. kat is epic in mid and to gank if you re higher level then the others. just dont go mid if you have twisted fate or karthus in your team.
I suggest you to play defensive till youre level 6. Jump on an enemy while activated w skill and then throw a dagger and run away. when youre level 6, activate w skill, put exhaust on enemy, jump on him, activate ignite make your ulti till he is out of range, throw your dager and jump again. the enemy should be dead. after that you can easily gank top and bot. kat is nice to gank!!
I take Exhaust and Ignite, to reduce Magic Resist and to let them longer in my ulti. Ignite to give them the rest!!!!!
Pros / Cons
-Fullequipped shump steals karthus the half life :p
-penta kill guaranteed
-every ****ing single time in focus of enemies
-can be disabled
-senseless without ulti
I take these Runes because i have at end as you can see nearly 70 magic penetration. this will help you a lot to deal bonus damage. kat has nice passive with her cooldown reduction. if you take additianolly cooldown reduction runes you can cast after a double kill instantly your next ulti. normally it has like 45 sec dooldown? ..
you can change the life qunitesses of course. they are my standard quitnesses, i have them with every champ cause you know when youre getting attacked and youve low hp and could survive if you had 5 hp more? thats one of these reason.
at first i start with dorans shield. that should help you to survive long in mid lane till your level 6 and can buy mejas while farming or probably getting helped with ganking. after you bought mejas be sure that you get every kill. i know it will bring many flames on, but my mates understand it and let me kill all enemies till i have 20 stacks ;)
so, after that i buy magic penetration boots to gank faster, be faster and do more damage. after that i get spellvamp with hextech revolver. it helps to be even longer on lane and if youre low on health you can jump like a lil bunny from enemy to enemy to gain life and deal damage. rylas then to slow them with your ulti. with exhaust they dont have a chance to survive or get away.
Bad enemies for Kat :(
i think its bad if the enemy has much diable like blitzcrank. he can disable you in 3 ways (grab, punch in the air and ulti). shen and rammus and galio are annoying too, cause their taunt. you can fail a teamfight just if you got disabled. so wait a bit till they are fighting and then, if they used their skills jump in and cast your ulti! BAM.
Good Allies for Kat :)
best champion for kat is amumu! ulti, and stun. :) galio is nice too. and supporter like janna who can heal ;)
its hard to be with damage dealer on a lane because a betteritemed kat is alwasys better then any other champion. fed ket is unstoppable.
