Threats & Synergies
You have more range and escapes/engages. Just avoid her Ult, and its an easy lane.
1v1, just comes down to the better Cait.
You have the upper hand in range, but he does more damage. As long as you stay back and poke you an win.
Rather easy lane, as you have more range. Just avoid his pokes and avoid hard engages.
He can't even do adc. Lol
You have slightly more range but he can easily burst you down. Play safe and survive until late game.
Just /ff at 20.
Late game he does outrange and damage you, but if you can shut him down early it is an easy game.
She can easily chase you down and double attack. Just be prepared to hard engage as she doesn't have much sustain
Her Q can poke you from afar, but she is rather easy.
You outrange him pure and simple. Just watch for when he goes invisible.
Avoid close quarter combat as he can tele you to the center of the fight. His abilities out range you and he is tanky, but his dps is rather low.
His Q can wreck you.
She can roll out of your Q so don't waste the mana there. Just harass her.
Just avoid her bombs and jump landings.
For your 5th item you should either get Last Whisper or Yoummuu's Ghostblade. It all depends on the team comp you are facing. If you are going against a tanky Nasus, Amumu, and Leona comp., you will want to grab Last Whisper as it will do more damage to them. If you are playing a squishy or semi tank team then get YG due to the bonus crits, attack damage, and the passive. I prefer to get YG for the majority of the time.
For your 6th item you're left with a few choices. If you still aren't do enough damage to the tanks build a Last Whisper. If their team has hard CC from champs like Leona, grab the Mercurial Scimitar to maximize your escapes and damage. If you find yourself dying often or being targeted in the teamfights, build the GA to get a second life and maybe flip the battle. Frozen Mallet will give you more sustain and damage, and it will allow you to kite targets easily. I prefer the BotRK the most as it provides extra damage and attack speed, as well even more sustain. Not to mention the 8% max damage it does too.
