Introduction

Hello everyone , I'm Razzor411 , and this is my Yellow Caitlyn guide.I worked very hard on this guide and as it is my first guide I would greatly appreciate any constructive feedback from you guys.

*I jokingly call this the Yellow Caitlyn build as I tried to experiment with items I realised that the core items have a some kind of yellowish background so I gave it the name with the inspiration from the popular Blue Ezreal.

The reason behind this order of leveling abilities is that I prefer to have reduced cool-down on my 90 Caliber Net if I ever need to close the gap or run away.

Summoner spells

[firstcol width=230]
I usually go with Ignite as my 1st summoner spell if the enemy team doesn't have a lot of hard cc, as I do not feel confident with Barrier.

There isn't much to be said about this choice Flash is a great summoner spell that will keep you safe from ganks and will allow you to make some great plays.


I use Cleanse when I know the enemy team has hard cc and will try to focus me down 1st.

Champion abilities

Ability explanation
  • Headshot Every few basic attacks, Caitlyn will fire a headshot dealing 150% damage to a champion or 250% damage to a minion.
    This adds a consistent 50% more damage on every 8/7/6 attacks. It's great for poke and stacks with critical strikes along with Infinity Edge's passive (250% more critical damage).
  • Piltover Peacemaker is Caitlyns main skill for wave clearing and harassing.It scales wery well with attack damage the only problem is it deals less damage the more units it hits.
  • Yordle Snap Trap Sets a trap that an enemy Champion can spring immobilizing and revealing them for a short duration. Yordle Snap trap is a great utility skill for zoning enemies and blocking easy pathways.
  • 90 Caliber Net Fires a net dealing 80/130/180/230/280 (+0.8*AP) magic damage and slowing an enemy by 50% for 1/1.3/1.5/1.8/2 second(s). Knocks Caitlyn back.This utility ability is great for escaping enemies or chasing the same.
  • Ace in the Hole Caitlyns Ultimate is a blast to use. It is a high damage, long range, homing nuke that devastates enemies it hits. The ability has a small wind up duration where Caitlyn locks on, during that time if the enemy falls out of sight she will drop aim and the ability will go on a short cooldown. If the enemy goes out of range or sight after she launches the missile it will home to the target regardless. Her ultimate also has a short re-use timer and is can be fired off every minute or so without much cooldown reduction. The only problem is it can be intercepted by other champions, so I advise you not to use it in teamfights .

Items

Items


Basic starting item which gives you damage and restores health per hit.

Grab these on your first trip back , upgrade them into Berserker's Greaves later, and buy a Health Potion or 2.

Buy Avarice blade along with your boots of speed in your first trip back as it will give you nice amount of gold and it is used to build the next two items.

This is one of the main items of the Yellow Cayt. build you should finish it first as it gives bonus damage and crit. chance and allows you to bully your enemies even more by reducing their healing.It also works very well with your passive in the early stages of the game making you deal a lot of damage on headshots, I usually wait in lane and farm till 2400 gold so I can buy Executioner's Calling , Boots of Speed 2x Health Potion and a Sight ward or two so I can help out my support.

This is the item you should be getting second as it complements Caitlyns needs with bonus attack speed , crit. chance and mobility , plus its passive allows you to quickly take out a creep wave using Piltover Peacemaker and then shooting the ranged creeps it will also allow for more procs. of your passive and with your already high crit. chance + Statikk Shivs passive you will deal great amounts of damage.

There is not much to be said about this IE will make your damage skyhigh as it stacks with your passive and gives you even more crit. chance.

At this stage of the game enemies will start to build armor and will be hard to kill, that's why building Last Whisper is essencial so we can continue dealing high damage.

I build Blade of the Ruined King over The Bloodthirster as it complements Caitlyns kit more it gives her attack speed + damage + lifesteal + bonus damage on hit which helps against beefy tanks and bruisers + active slow to help us get away of catch up to a target opposed to The Bloodthirsters damage + life steal.If the game goes on for long enough then you can sell Executioner's Calling to get a The Bloodthirster.

Laning phase and teamfights

Laning phase and Teamfights

In the laning phase you should focus on farming placing traps when you can and trying to harass the enemy without taking damage from them or loosing the creeps.It is important to understand the champions you are playing against so you don't push when you should play passive and vice versa.In teamfights stay behind your tank and bruiser shooting the closest target that's in your range while landing a good Piltover Peacemaker when you can.This is how I played her and positioned myself with this build and I have recorded only 1 loss (due to me having to afk for 1 min because of an emergency) this build allows great damage that will shred tanks in no time allowing you to join your own tanks/bruiser/offtank in the front lines.
