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.
I've always been looking for a good ranged character with some interesting abilities and a ranged super kill that super awesome! Unlike other ranged champs Caitlyn is pretty interesting shes amazing at getting away if needed or saving teammates with ur traps for a quick get away. She is sort of like a ranged Gangplank but awesomer cause her dmg is amazing with her passive.
Summoner Spells! ah geez they r so helpful, i use ghost for numerous reasons sometimes a enemy is running and if u can just get them in range of ur ultimate u might get the kill. or use it to run away, u know lol. and i use Clarity because early game if u have mid, it will save u alot because her abilities early game eat up mana but its not worth getting manamune since u dont need it late game. but clarity in early game will help u sooooooo much u dont understand.
Pros / Cons
Awesome kill shot
Cons: Lil Squishy
No cool skins D:
These are the items i buy because she does so much dmg with them with her passive and her q / 1 ability. the extra armor pen from runes allows u to rip through armor and keep critting hardcore if needed. Sometimes i trade my BLOODRAZER to a Wits End if the other team has alot of hardcore mana users such as Ryze, Janna, etc etc. I buy my bloodthirster because the lifesteal with ur attack speed makes ur insane along with the guardians angel at the end makes u a lil more tougher and just incase you do get focused and die u come back to life and are ready to keep on killing!
I went 21/0/6 because her cooldowns r very short anyways so theres not need for the utility spec since u already have cd reductions runes, the spec in offense allows you to do much more dmg anyways. which is what you need.
I chose these runes because the fact that since u go attack speed, crit with a lil life steal the extra health will help u to not be as squishy, the armor pen will help u do more dmg with all ur auto attacks. ur cooldown reduction helps u able to use ur ultimate more and kill more stragglers.
In team fights this is what u do, stay in the middle to the back of group so if other team trys to get u from behind u launch a net behind u so u change ur position in group directly so u dont get focused first. When the Fighting begins drop a trap behind whoever ur focusing, they will try to run away and ur trap will snare so therefore u and ur team can cc them more or just nuke the hell outta them. if theres a pesky lil ****er tring to run away use run to the side of the group so ur ult cant be blocked and select ur target and fire! they should die its an amazing " omg i got away.. o wtf?!?! im locked on noooooooooo " If you are ganking u can put a trap in the bush ur on or behind them again to snare them and u can also slow with ur net.
Her abilities are very interesting first you can jump over walls with your net and you can stop ppl from moving with your traps and your ultimate is like a pew pew pew pew pew.... MISSLE! basically its like raising your hand and puttin the smack down on dem bitces! knaw i mean?
I go try to max out q ability first because its an awesome harass and it clears creep waves pretty well. i then try to max out my trap because ur trap is vital to either getting away or catching someone who is tring to get away.
To farm just run over to creep waves and just q through the line of them and then ur auto attack with clear them all out, pretty simple.
Shes very good at 1v1's this is what you do as soon as your battling ur target drop ur trap either in front of them or below them or on top of them depending on how well u think u can kill them, if u lay it in front of them its a excellent situation for this, lay in front of them so if they try to finish u off u run away or if u r both at low health it will snare them u can run and hide and just ult them and they will die, if they try to run away thats y u put it behind them, if u put it on top of them it will just do extra dmg and snare them so u can run a lil and just kite if they r a melee. preferably i like to put it on top of them because that extra dmg could always help.
This was my first build ever and i know its not as fancy as other people but i hope you like it and please give me feedback :D
