Hi My name is TaIm I am the mid laner for Supreme Rivals Alpha. I have been playing Katarina since season 1 and had one of the best experiences of my life playing with her xD. She has incredible burst thats just amazing. She is known for the quick hands champion that requires a lot of practice.

Combo

DFG<Q<E<W<R
-Your Q (Bouncing Blades) is the key too Katarina's main damage cause it can proc on most of her skills.
-Your E (Shunpo) is a really nice utility that makes her gain less damage for 5 seconds and is able too jump on too allied objects.
-Your W (Sinister Steel) has a really short cooldown recduction that is only 3 SECONDS LONG!! It gives her extra mobility when on an enemy champion
-Your R (Death Lotus) is a 3 champion target which reduces enemy health regens and has the ability too burst champions down really fast.

When Behind

1. Your option is too farm underneath your tower and ward
2. Patiently wait for a gank
3. Keep the areas of the map warded so you know when the enemy will gank
4. Play extra safe so that when the enemy denies you in farm you reduce their damage with your Shunpo.

During Lane

Your best option really depends on how the enemy lane champion is. Usually you want just play it safe till you have your main combo (Q-W-E). On most matchups you play safe till you have the enough potential too poke down the champion or the potential too all in them.

Team Fights

You would want to always be the last one in the team fights due to your ult but never be too late, when going in Q before doing your entire combo so it well apply more damage


Guide Top

Ending

Katarina is one of the hard champions, it takes time, dedication, and practice. Once you get the hang of playing Katarina you will have lots of fun playing her. She takes a lot of critical thinking cause when you think about it her ult is one of the best ones for a team fight situation.

See you guys in the Rift! :D
