Welcome to my first ever mobafire guide. In this guide i will be providing information on Caitlyn The Sherrif of Piltover I will try to be informative and clear as possible.
Lets start off by talking about her role. She is a Attack Damage carry, which means she will be the one that deals the most damage to enemy champions and or ends there health down to absolute zero.
Her ranged attacks are impressive, though you will have to keep your distance from enemy lines, or else they can kill you from a distance.
Greater Marks Of Desolation Greater Mark of Desolation
This will give you massive ammounts if increased damage towards your early, no questions abou it any AD ranged carry should have this as there red slot.
Greater seal of Resilience
Many contradict to take Armour or Mana Regen, personally in my very own opinion you will be better off taking armour because your more dependent on your basic attacks to deal tons of damage, you can live without the mana regen, just wait it out stay near turrets you will be fine.
Greater Glyph of Shielding
i take Magic Resist, reason being, caitlyn is a squishy champion, meaning she gets killed easily and gets focused a lot, if she does go up against an AP champion, her health will drop to the next century, Having magic resist is very helpful indeed with caitlyn.
Greater Quintessence of Strength
Finally for Quints i take physical damage for caitlyn because it will help alot with her abilities. This will allow you to harras and get more damage to your opponent very easily. This is a must for caitlyn, This will increase the damage on her ulti and her Q ability by a substantial amount.
head shot is her passive ability, for every 8/7/6 basic attacks Caitlyn will fire a headshot dealing either 150% damage to a champion or 250% damage to a minion.
This ability will help you soo much during early game. Every 8/7/6 basic attacks will increase her damage/crit a whole lot. Make sure you do this mostly to the enemy champions so you can harras early game.
What i do with this ability is to harras enemy champions, what this will do is make them pivot from side to side, and it can annoy them, while they do this, What do you do? FARM OF COURSE. make sure you do those last hits and get those gold !
Yordle Snap Trap
I would take this ability FIRST. Reason being is that this will help alot in either lanes, Top, bot, or mid. If your in top or bot, lay those traps in the brushes, they wont even see it comming. If your in mid lane, Plant them in the middle and make it like a line so the enemy champion whoever you facing with wont get through, they will have to get through your traps first, this will have you farming alot !! PS. THIS HOLDS ONLY 3 TRAPS !!!!
90 Caliber Net
Once this ability is activated it will fire a net slowing an enemy champion or minion by 50% for 1-2 seconds, and it wil deal 80-280(+80% of ability power) magic damage, Then you will get hit by a recoil, thus making you scoot backwards and if flash or ghost is available use it to get your quick escape. For this ability i obviously use this to escape in sticky situations, for example lets say im getting chased down by a tryndamere and he slowed me down i can use this ability to get further back and flash away or run away !
Ace in the Hole
Ace in the hole , my favorite ability to use to last hit enemy champions. What this will do is once pressed R, a circle will apear, which indeed has a radius. Once you press on to a enemy champion, its LOCKED ON !!! the enemy cannot escape it, UNLESS(DONT GET YOUR HOPES UP!!!) a teamate of the enemy champion takes the hit for them. This can be very frustrating to most people, especially me ! haha. Make sure you are alone with that enemy champion and lock them on without any other teamates of theres gets in the way ! perfecting this will make you a great Ace in the holer :D
Champs you should focus :
The AD Range carries
. Miss Fortune
. Twisted Fate (unless he goes AP)
basically the AD range carries are the best ones to focus in team fights FIRST.
Then you may want to go for the AP carries.
. Ahri (careful of her charm)
. Karthus (DEFINETLY KARTHUS 2nd After the AD, if hes on the opposite team)
NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER FOCUS TANKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dont try and go 1v1 with Volibear or he will fling you to there turret and or enemy lines, Dont 1v1 Rammus Either or he will taunt u to death.
Most Deadly tanks imo
. Shen (IF FED)
So remember focus the squishes first !
This is all the information i will give you on ranked because im not much of a ranked player !
FEEDBACK WOULD BE NICE !
Well thats it to my guide, i hope you like it thanks for reading it i will be making more guides in the future !!!!
