About Me

Welcome to my first Katarina guide!

I'm Kodoku, a small time league streamer aiming to have fun with others to join me in my climb. I'm happily nesting in platinum 2 at the moment. Katarina is probably by far my favorite champion with roughly 850k mastery points.

I'm preparing to get back to streaming soon so if you want feel free to swing by and say hello or ask a question. I'm always happy to help :D

Pros and Cons

Pros

    + Godlike Carry Potential
    + No Mana Constraints
    + Mixed AD/AP Damage Ratios
    + Spammable Flash-like Ability
    + High AOE Damage Output
    + Tons of Fun

Katarina is one of those champions that you almost mentally go next when you see. Without point-click cc, she can be hard to lock down due to her ability to quickly dive back line and get out just as quickly. If your team is struggling you are fully capable of changing everything with one play.

Cons

    - High Skill Cap to Master
    - Poor Wave Clear against Siege
    - Many High Threat Counters
    - Melee Champ
    - Abilities Auto Push Wave
    - Not Well Rounded for Team Comps

All power comes at a cost.
Katarina's Bouncing Blades is essentially her only farming tool.
Her AOE passive makes wave management harder than most. She has a really narrow role within team compositions and doesn't bring much more than damage. She also doesn't have much wave clear potential when enemies siege.
Abilities

Voracity


✦ Whenever an enemy champion dies within 3 seconds of Katarina damaging them, her abilities' cooldowns are reduced by 15 seconds.

✦ Whenever Katarina retrieves a Dagger, she uses it to slash through all nearby enemies, dealing magic damage and reducing Shunpo cooldown.

✦ DAMAGE: 68 − 240 (based on level) (+100% bonus AD) (+ 55 / 70 / 85 / 100% (based on level) AP)
✦ SHUNPO CD REDUCTION: 78 / 84 / 90 / 96% (based on level)

Daggers last 4 seconds before disappearing.


Bouncing Blades


✦ COOLDOWN: 11 / 10 / 9 / 8 / 7
✦ DAMAGE: 75 / 105 / 135 / 165 / 195 (+ 30% AP)

✦ Katarina throws a Dagger to the target enemy that bounces to up to 2 nearby enemies, dealing magic damage to each target.

✦ The Dagger then lands on the ground 350 units opposite from where it struck the target. The time to land from striking the target is the same regardless of distance traveled.

Preparation


✦ COOLDOWN: 15 / 14 / 13 / 12 / 11
✦ BONUS MOVEMENT : 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90%

✦ Katarina gains a burst of decaying movement speed, tossing a Dagger into the air directly above herself.

✦ Katarina tosses a Dagger into the air and gains decaying movement speed over 1.25 seconds.

Shunpo


✦ COOLDOWN: 14 / 12.5 / 11 / 9.5 / 8
✦ DAMAGE: 15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 (+ 50% AD) (+ 25% AP)

✦ Katarina blinks to the target location around the target unit or Dagger, dealing magic damage to the nearest enemy in range.

✦ Shunpo resets Katarina's autoattack timer.

Death Lotus


✦ COOLDOWN: 90 / 60 / 45
✦ DAMAGE: 375 / 562.5 / 750 (+ 22% bonus AD) (+ 19% AP)

✦ Katarina rapidly channels for 2.5 seconds, throwing a dagger every 0.166 seconds to up to 3 nearby enemy champions, dealing magic damage and applying Grievous Wounds for 3 seconds.

✦ Death Lotus cannot be cancelled by movement and basic attack commands in the first and last 0.25 seconds of channeling.
Conclusion
I'm sure i'll write more to this when I find the time or have the will but for now, thank you for reading my Katarina guide!

Again as I said if you have any questions feel free to direct them to me over at my Twitch
