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.
Here is my Caitlyn guide. Not much in it because, I don't know how to explain the items, runes, etc. I chose. You can you this guide to get a last minute look over on Caitlyn. Caitlyn's main role is AD Carry. She has the highest auto-attack range in the game with 650. The one champion that can out-range her auto-attack is Tristana when she hits level 13.
> Highest Auto-Attack range until level 13
> Easy to "Hit-and-Run" or "Kite"
> Great damage through-out the game
> Easy to "Poke" with
> Passive helps scare enemies and last hit minions
> Yordle Snap Trap and scout the bush for you
> 90 Caliber Net is a good skill the escape with
> Easy to correct your position with 90 Caliber Net
> Not easy to run away from
> Ultimate kills dying enemies trying to escape
Caitlyn has a lot of pros however, a champion with a lot of pros has some terrible cons
> She hss low mana so early game will be hard to spam "Piltover Peacemaker" to harass
> She is VERY weak. Almost NO survivability until she get's her Bloodthirster. Even then she has low health, she can still be easily killed.
> "Ace in the Hole" can be easily blocked as it shows the path of the bullet and has a small charge up time.
> Yordle Snap Trap has no vision range. It can only be used to get a one second vision in a bush or whatever.
> Yordle Snap Trap is also visible and can easily be walked around.
As you are an AD Carry and you WILL be focusing in bot lane, I suggest Armour Seals. This will help you vs. the other team's AD Carry.
The Glyphs aren't as strong as the Seals therefore, I suggest taking Magic Resist so, you can counter the AD Carry's support pokes (if they poke). They can also help you counter Hybrid AD Carry's (Ezreal, Jax, etc.)
Armour Pen. Marks will help you all the way through till late game. It might only be a small amount early game however, the other team wont start with tonnes of armor. As the game progresses and if the other team start to build armor and tank then follow the "Vs. Tanky" build. These Marks will help you break through the AD Carry's little armor early game.
The Quintessences are flat Attack Damage. These will help you farm easier and also give your "Piltover Peacemaker" (Q) stronger damage. The extra AD will help you harass the other team's AD Carry.
This is just one example of how your Rsnked Game can go if you sort of follow this guide on Caitlyn
If you need extra help then also follow Caitlyn - Boom, Headshot (Updated by Moonedge) guide. It has a lot of information however, it's now updated to Season 3. So you can stilfollow my item, skills, runes and masteries.
