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.
Introduction and explanation
Okay so this is an Hybrid Guide for Katarina now IMPORTANT!!! Do not do this build if you get pwned in the early game!!!
For items i've chosen some attack speed, AP and attack dmg items that will maximize the hybrid damage output..For boots i get an Ionian boots of lucidity since we all need the cdr from it.Okay so for the last item there you will have a choice...between theand the.Me personally i prefer the Deathcap since i prefer having more AP than att speed.But still...as i said YOUR CHOICE!!!
I always try to max outfirst then get themaxed out. You can always try another tactics for the skill sequence since it may be done in many various ways.
Masteries and Runes
Okay i know the masteries are a bit counfusing but i've made them so that i get both defensive stats as well as offensive stats.For the marks i get Magic Pen. runes which help the damage output of katarina's skills.For seals i get flat health runes since katarina is really squishy especially in the early game.And for quintessences and the glyphs i get CDR runes since katarina needs all the CDR she can get.and it synchronises with the Ionian boots very well!
Team Work (Solo work)
Okay so one word...AWESOME. Katarina is the best solo'er in the WHOLE game...IF one of your teamates is going jungle youre the one that should go solo [unless there is another katarina in the opposite team-cuz this sucks (katarina vs katarina solo=bad idea)]. Now what you want to do is always harrass the opposite team with daggers and now IMPORTANT!!! watch your opponents and just when they land a strike SHUNPO thats teh rught way to shunpo someone, if not youre gonna get pwnd...AND REMMEMBER if youre going solo you wanna take afor your first item!!
Okay so Katarina can be played in 2 different ways the hybrid one and the full AP...me personally? i prefer the hybrid though im loving some really good full AP build...so yeah if you love playing hybrid champions GET YOURSELF A KATARINA!!!
