Threat Champion Notes
6
Talon The recent nerf on talon's E makes it unable to stop your ultimate. But beware of his immense damage output in a short second.
6
Yasuo Try to bait Yasuo's windwall so you can land your Q on him. Either pretend to Q or simply hope that the Q on minions can reach him. After that, Shunpo to him and unleash hell on him.

Introduction

Hi. I'm Lv18 Squirtle [SG/MY Server] and I'm a Platinum 4 player. I've played LoL since season 2 and I'm still playing it right now. I have over 1000 Normal wins and 400 wins in Ranked(Season 4). I have played over 300 games with Katarina every since it was released and I love how you can clean fights very efficiently with Katarina's skill set.

If you have any problems or need help in this guide. Do leave me a message or add me in LoL :)

Laning Phase

During the laning phase, you need to get used to how your opponent plays. If he is aggressive, try to trade back with him or stay passive in lane so you can get your early games item. If you are still unable to play efficiently against him, push out your lane and roam to other potential GANKABLE lanes to get kills. (But don't feed :D)

Farming

If against a ranged opponent, Use your Q to farm minions. But beware as it can push your lane.

If against a melee opponent like zed, stay away from him when you are trying to CS as he might do a lot of damage with his skills.

Team fights

During teamfights, your position is the most crucial part in the fight. Once you are caught, you basically cannot unleash any of your skills without getting CC-ed. What I would do is that, I would position HALF-SCREEN away from my team as I do not want to be noticed and focused down. When the fight breaks out, I would find opportunity to find LOW HEALTH enemies and burst them with my skills. After that, your skills will definitely reset thanks to Voracity and you should seek out the next LOWEST health enemy that is within your shunpo range. Make sure you focus squishy targets to enable your passive to pay off.
