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.
Pros / Cons
shunpo is a very powerful spell
and it gives u mobility
boucing blades and sinister steel
are good for farming
no skill shot
esay to play
easy to harras oppents
not good early game farmer
she get focused a lot
her ultimate has a short range
the reason i choose all ap/per lvl runes is because it helps u farm faster. they will also increase the dmg delt by your deathfire graspa,and with your masteries and rabadon s deathcap
you will get 35percent more of that ap so u get a little more then a 100AP for your runes.
hi everyone I am going to show how to build katarina because they have changed here spells.
katarina can be very strong in mid but she can also top well if she is not against a hero tjhet has life steal or spell vamp.Katarina can play bot but I find it harder so I would suggest u to go mid because u can farm well and u only have to focus on one enemy.
so in this guide i will show you how to play katarina in mid lane
I chose a 21/9/0 build for the masteries because she need incresed ap from masterise to better farm in early game and she need a little def because she doesnt have to much hp.
you need to start with boots of speeds and 3 pots. then get your magic pen boots or else ur ult wont deal a lot of dmg.then buy a gian belt for hp it will help to kill in 1vs1. afetr u should buy your crystal scepter.then if u are playing against an ap champions u should buy an abyssal scepter but if you are against an AD or AS champions buy your will of ancienst first.then buy a deathfire grasp it is very powerull and if u conbine it with ignite and ur ultimate u get an instant kill.After u can buy a death cap for more AP.
I decided to upgrade boucing blade and sinister steel first because it will help u farm a lot so you still get money if you don t manage to get kills.when u can farm well enough start maxing shunpo to deal more dmg to your opponent.try to get lvl 6 before your opponent so u can kill him with Q E W R and ignite but u have to do the combo fast or else your ult will deal full dmg.
I take flash and ignite because with flash u can easyli escape form a gank and then u can shunpo on a minion or on a ward don t forget that shunpo can be activate on wards or even TEEMO S MUSHROOMS!And I also take ignite with ignite and a deathfire grasp u can drop your opponent to half healt the finish with a combo.if you want to u can take heal and focus on buying items that give more AP then buying your crystal scepter.
In a gank it is very important for you to wait the good moment to go in and activate your ultimate.If there is malphite zyra or amumu in your tema wait for them to use there ultimate then u can go and your ult will deal carzy dmg.
in early game it will be hard for you to farm with bouncing blade since they nerfed it but if u can use the mark that it will put on an oppenent and then use sinister stell you should be okay. MID-GAME finnaly now whit bouncing blade and sinister stell u can get 4 or 5 minions one shot and the last one u can kill him with shunpo so katarina is a good mid-late game farmer.
so this is my first guide I just wanted you to know the kewn katarina a little more. I m just telling you what i know is good.I have been playing games with this build and i got many triple and quadra kills. enjoy and plz make good comments it my first guide I am only 13 and i don t even know how to make a good guide.
**** IS GOOD!miammiam
