Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Ok so this is the build I use whenever i play Kat, and it gets me around 20 kills a game. What I'll do is get all 3 main skills first in order to easy harrass champs in the beginning of the game. As I level i will focus on blades in order to take out minions and to harrass Champs from a distance. After maxing out blades ill max shunpo, which at this point will begin to become a nuke as AP items and Meja's start to stack. Ill then finish up instincts with the final levels (of course i level ulti as soon as available) Ill start out with boots and 3 health pots so i can stay in a lane. By the time i run out of pots ill have enough gold to go buy boots or Meja's (depending on how noob the other team is and how many kills i have gotten) The third item i get is Zhonya's for the 25% AP boost for decent damage at a low level and the active ability also helps when jumping into group fights and yoru ulti doesnt quite take off enough health to finish them and allows your team to do the job. Zhonyas is also useful as counters against skills such as Requiem and DoT from champs and ignite when health is low and you have to run away. Ill then get Crystal scepter at this point as the fights become more serious in order to keep people in range during solo ganking for my ulti. Dont worry, if you do this right, you should have a decent amount of AP with only 4 items due to Meja's at this point and the Abyssal and Void merely add to the nuke of your shunpo and speed at which you kill opposing champs with your ulti. The summoners skills i use mainly as offense for situations such as laning when a hero champ with a little health runs behind turrent to tele while his partner guards you from following, in which you activate ghost, run at him and flash past to finish off the retreating champ within seconds and get out, most of the time without even getting hit by either turrent or the other champ due to ghost still being activated. In defensive, it can be used as a double shunpo effect after shunpoing into a large group, ulting, flashing out then shunpoing to a minion or ranged ally champ and ghosting if necesary to get away from the other team due to getting quite of lot of AoE damamge (usually) after jumping in and being the target of the entire other team due to your damage output -_-. If done correctly, near the end of the build you should have around 630 AP which, pretty much causes your shunpo to nuke around 800 damage and your ulti the ability to eat most anyone including tanks. if caught in a group where the tank doenst die after your ulti, dont worry, due to Kat's special ability your shunpo and blades are recharged, if not your ulti already as well and can easily finish off the tank(s) with easy. Have fun. See if you can beat my record of 42 kills in a game :)
