Threats to Katarina with this build

Threat Champion Notes
1
Karthus Karthus can steadily poke you down if he lands Lay Waste. It's spammable due its low cost and low cooldown. They do have a slight delay before exploding though, so you can dodge them with your high movement speed after a bit of practice. He has no hard CC to cancel your ultimate, no does he have any mobility to escape from it. With Voracity, you can Shunpo away from Death Defied once you kill him.
1
Kha'Zix Since he himself is melee, use your W to poke each time he goes for CS. Also, your W will hit him even if he stealths. Don't push too hard or you'll be marked with the isolation passive. This actually does a bit of damage at higher level, so be careful. He has no way to cancel your ultimate, but he does have a jump.

Combo Q + E + W + R = GG

Creeping / Jungling

Farm creeps as you go. When mid goes MIA because of being low or buying. Instead of recalling go to wraith and pick up some creeps for the extra gold. It gives you an advantage.


Guide Top

Team Work

You should try to wait for your team to go HAM. Wait for the right time where most of cc has been used. Go in and clean up.

Summary

I find Katarina easy to play. I really like playing her because she has a lot of poke burst and is mobile. You can make some really good plays while playing her.
