Hey bud, a +1 here. Nice build, I play alot with Cait and agree with most of the stuff you said there. The only thing i don't agree is not buying vampiric scepter in the beginning of the game, it gives a lot of sustain and u can replace it for the second doran.

Very bad guide! Summoner heal is useless in s3 + last whisper gives you more % penetration than black cleaver and btw ls is cheaper.

"Makes your harrass even stronger then it already is."

Should be "harass" and "than".

Nice guide. Thanks for sharing! :)

It's a great guide, really detailed although with some personal choices that you've made (the boots of swiftness, for example) that I wouldn't agree, but yes, overall it's what I've been using on Caitlyn. I find her very versitile to adapt to certain conditions.

Never took her in the mid lane, though.

Great and easy guide to follow :)

I think the point for def is unnecessary. Runic effenity is more important both for red dot and mana regen. also while you choose rune affinity you can go throu ekstra mov speed or mana regen too..

if you take heal spell then you want to take 1 point with mastery to it... 5 hp per lvl is point well spent...

I disagree about the tower damage, 5% isn't really worth it. Most of the time caitlyn's range is sufficient to snipe towers, alot of the time when you take towers it is due to winning a teamfight or them being out of position rather than actually backdooring.

Optimal rune set is not appearing for me so i can't really judge it.

You should not be taking exhaust on caitlyn as your support should generally take that.

I disagree about nasus being good with caitlyn due to him needing Q farm to have any presence late game which hinders your farm.

Dorans blade statement about life steal needs to be fixed.

No mention about boot upgrades which are pretty crucial now(T3 boots)

I dont know why statik shyv has not been mnetioned.

I disagree about blue buffs since your AP carry should be having them since Caitlyn is not very mana intensive.

You don't make any mention about Caitlyn's passive(Unless i missed it?)

You need to heavily update your guide for S3.

Gj man great build TRIPLE KILL IN MIN 5

The build doesnt give you a triple kill friend. Your team mates did. My guide/build just made it easier for you :)
