Pros and cons

Good roam
Good early game
Great mid game
1v9 potential
Great mobility


No cc
Screwed when cced
Weak late
Very weak when behind
Hard to master
I personally think that Dark harvest is the better option beacause it gives you so much dmg in team fights and can be used on every enemy. It is very strong late game and gives her so much dmg and that way she is okay late game. But in laning phase its not really that good if you cant chunk your enemy below 50% hp but it is very good since you want to take 2v2 fights early and you can proc it twice and get 2 stack. So Dark harvest over Electrocute imo.

I take Conq over dark harvest because you dont have to buy Deaths dance and get more damage instead. 15% healing is very good and you get a lot of ap/ad from the 10 stacks

Hextech Gunblade gives you everything that you want ap, ad, burst, healing and slow with a low cooldown. The early ad helps a lot since you can auto attack reset with Shunpo and Shunpo 3 times at most. The 80 ap helps a lot with your Bouncing Blades poke and wave clear. The burst and slow is very good for one target if you are in a 2v1 you can oneshot a target and then kill the other easier. I recommend building Hextech Gunblade in this order you will alomst always start Long Sword and 3 Health Potion then it depends on how much gold you have if you have under 1050 go for another Long Sword Boots Refillable Potion and a Control Ward if you have over 1050 get Hextech Revolver and then it get Bilgewater Cutlass and then finally Hextech Gunblade You will always rush this item but in some scenarios you will get a Hexdrinker or Seeker's Armguard

lets start with Sorcerer's Shoes you will buy this the most since it gives magic penetration and it scales very good with Katarina since her ap scaling isnt that great

now Mercury's Treads, Mercury's Treads Is very good since it gives tenacity and magic resistance. But the tenacity is what we really want 9/10 times. I should probably explain what tenacity is tenacity reduces cc by the amount you have if you have 25% the cc will be reduced by 25% so if you get stunned for 1 second it will go down to 0,75 seconds and that is really good since Katarina is very vulnerable to cc if you go my runes you will also have tenacity in runes and if you go Mercury's Treads and Legend: Tenacity you will have 51% in total and thats a lot but Legend: Tenacity is good alone if they dont have a lot of cc but if they have a full ap comp you should still for Mercury's Treads since it gives magic resistance

3rd and final Ninja Tabi you can go ninja tabis if you are vs 3 4 or 5 but when the enemy has 3 ad only go for Ninja Tabi when they all depends on their auto attack like Jax top Yasuo mid and almost every adc because Ninja Tabi blocks 12% of the damage from basic attacks. Ninja Tabi also gives 20 armor so thats also good

Dont think about movement speed since they all give 45%

You can rush Rabadon's Deathcap after Hextech Gunblade it really depends on how its going and what you need. If you are really fed you can rush Rabadon's Deathcap but usually you wil get Rabadon's Deathcap as 3rd or 4th item

You can rush Seeker's Armguard after 2 Long Sword to get some armor if you are losing vs an ad midlaner then get Hextech Gunblade if you need Zhonya's Hourglass you can get that or you can go for something else. If you are vs 5 ap champions do not buy any of this i do not care how much you want it do not buy it. You will buy this item when you feel like you are dying alot you will usually get this early sometimes after Hextech Gunblade but sometimes you dont need it so you can just buy it as 5th or 6th item.

More items will come soon :)
The end
Thanks you so much for watching, i hope you learned something if you have any questions feel free to ask me on Twitch or here on mobafire
