Mythic Options
HEXTECH ROCKETBELT is the go-to Mythic item for Katarina. It gives you great stats, an additional dash AND the movement speed afterwards. Once SUNFIRE AEGIS gets nerfed, this will be the uncontested, best Mythic on Katarina again.

SUNFIRE AEGIS somehow still not having been nerfed on Patch 12.13, if you wanna go for more tankiness and longer fights, DEFINITELY consider this. It is insanely strong right now.

DIVINE SUNDERER used to be the best Mythic item on Katarina, but fell off hard after her AD-scalings were recently nerfed. Still, if you want a slightly tankier AD build, this remains a great option. Also, Sheen is a really strong early power-spike.

RIFTMAKER can be good in longer fights due to the ongoing passive damage and additional Omnivamp, but I would personally only recommend this on toplane.

NIGHT HARVESTER gives you short bursts of damage and movement speed, but I wouldn't recommend it over the other options on the current patch.

KRAKEN SLAYER is an item that I haven't personally tried recently. I don't see it being better than any of the other options, but I'm sure it can be fun in an off-meta build.

All of the above is accurate to Patch 12.13.
This section of the guide is still being worked on (WIP).
