Kanky's (casual) guide to Katarina

By Guest
Start (explanation)

(also my first guide ever)

My name is KankyDanky and I am an M6 (working on M7) Katarina. I love Kat, she is a very fun mid laner that needs (some) skill.

Let's get started I guess, Katarina is a hybrid mid lane assasin. She is a combo heavy and relies on burst damage to kill her opponents. Her kit is very well made and allows abilities to be chained and can be used as both offensive and defensive tools.
Middle (abilities and what they do)

Passive: Katarinas passive is "Voracity" whenever you get a kill or get an assist her cooldowns are reduced by 15 seconds.
Whenever she picks up a dagger she deals damage in a small circle around her increasing with level and AP + a little bit of AD.
- This is great for burst damage just by touching the dagger and is where most of your damage will come from, while you do have to be up close and personal there are ways for you to get out just as fast as you go in.

Q: Katarinas Q is "Bouncing Blades" it is a ranged targeted ability that deals AP damage. After hitting the target the dagger bounces to two of the closest enemies and lands on the ground allowing katarina to pick it up.
- This is another great source of damage, it also allows for engage as the dagger gets placed behind the target also giving an oppurtunity for damage from the passive.

W: Katarinas W ability is "Preparation" she throws a dagger into the air giving herself decaying movement speed and placing a dagger where the W was used.
- This ability is good for engage and disengage. The movement speed allows you to chase, run away and dodge skill shots. You can also use this ability after you Shunpo just for that extra burst of damage while you're on someone but it does come at the cost of losing a dagger to jump too if you need to get out.

E: Katarinas E ability is "Shunpo" she dashes to a target (ally, enemy, jungle monster, dagger, plants. I'm probably missing a few) dealing hybrid damage. Picking up a dagger while this si on cooldown reduces the cooldown by 10 seconds sacling with level.
-This ability is your bread and butter. It lets you blink in and out of fights, over walls to dagger, everything. It's what binds her other abilities all together.

R: Katarinas R is "Death Lotus" Katarina spins in place doing damage in a large circle around her, attacking the three nearest enemy champions with a flurry of knives. Each knife deals magic damage and ad that scales with attack speed (+50% per 100% bonus attack speed. It also applies 40% grievous wounds for 3 seconds.
- This ultimate deals massive damage if channled for the full 3 seconds and applies anti heal. It scales very hard with AP and very nicely with attack speed hence why the Hybrid build runs Bork and or Guinsoo's. You must be careful though as almost any form of cc cancle the ult and it also gets cancled upon using most items including hourglass.
This has been my guide to Katarina. I tried to make it decently detailed and I do apologise for any miss spellings. This is my first guide and please do remember it is for casulas nothing serious. I hope you all enjoy and remember what matters most is to have fun!
