Not Updated For Current Season
Well, this is only my second build here on MOBAFire, but I think it is pretty good, and I do pretty well with it in-game. I spent a lot of time trying to work out the kinks, and I think I have worked out most of them by now. The build is majorly damage output, with a little attack speed. Damage output is just Caitlyn's "thing." It makes her auto attacks to crazy damage, and make her Innate, Headshot, do CRAAAZY insane damage. Her main ability is Piltover Peacemaker, which can be used to initiate, and end, for that matter, a team fight. For her ult, you always want as much damage as you can get onto it (Err, it is a bullet...erm...into it?). You can use it to hunt down the annoying enemies who try to escape. If it has a lot of damage, and say...a Lux is trying to escape, and Lux is at half health, running for dear life, BOOM! Wait, you ulted, and now she is dead? How odd? No, not really. I think you can figure out how she died.
Working on getting Rune Pictures. If you know an easy way to get the, please send me a message, thanks!
Greater Mark of Desolation-Armor Pen. Take down those tanks!
Greater Seal of Strength-Attack Damage-Well, this is an attack damage build, and it is for Caitlyn.
Greater Glyph of Might-Attack Damage per Level-Just stacks up some more attack damage for you.
Greater Quintessence of Alacrity-Attack Speed-Adds some Attack Speed to your Damage, I mean, if you cant get a bunch of the damage in, what is the point of having it, right?
Offense-21- Extra damage, attack speed, armor pen, all that good stuff for Caitlyn.
Defense-0- Caitlyn isn't that squishy.
Utility-9- Mana Regen, Caitlyn's mana can go fast if you are in a team fight. Exp gain...Not much to say about that. It is what it is.
You should start off with a vampiric scepter. It gives lifesteal, which is good for early-game, and it takes some of the price off the Bloodthirster. Next, buy the atkspd boots. The Berserker's Greaves. They give the little bit of atkspd you need. Next, either buy the B.F. sword or finish off the Bloodthirster. Next, buy a B.F. sword. Go out to your lane, kill some stuff, and when you have enough, come back and buy an Infinity Edge. After the Edge, buy a Bilgewater Cutlass and eventually make it a Hextech Gunblade. After that, either buy another B.F. sword or just save up and buy the whole Black Cleaver at once. Then, for the next item, you buy depending on how you play. If you don't have any Mana issues with Caity, like me, buy a Madred's Bloodrazor, which has great synergy with her ult. But if you do, buy a Manamune. If you are having severe Mana issues early game, buy it right after Bloodthirster, and don't buy the Bloodrazor. But, remember, you are not a skill spamming mage, so, try to conserve your mana at the least, if you are having issues with it.
The basic skill sequence for Caity. I prefer to max 90-Caliber Net 2nd, but if you like the trap better then max it 2nd.
There is not much to say in here, but finally I will close out this little section with....Max Piltover Peacemaker first...ALWAYS! It is your main damaging skill, besides your auto-attacks, of course!
Ghost-To run away, given Caity isn't too fast.
Ignite-I just like this spell for Caity, but it can be swapped for Clarity or Exhaust.
Flash-A substitute for Ghost, up to you to pick.
Exhaust-having a hard time escaping sticky situations? Grab Exhaust.
Well, that's my build! I will constantly be updating it with new and improved thoughts and ideas, and I am always open for criticism!
