I usually take mid when I play cassio. I usually dont have problems against other AP carry but i always have problems with going against Katarina.

Whenever I try to harass her with noxious, she always jumps at me and attacks me. I know that I have to stay away from my minions so i dont get hit by her blade but can anyone tell me how I should play against her?? Do I have to play super defensively?

Thanks soo much GREATLY appreciate it

When I play mid I usually got problem with Cassiopeia, but I never play Katarina so.. To the topic, my advice is try to out farm her as I would say Cassiopeia is a better farmer. Then also do the same thing I did to Leblanc when I met one with Malzhar. She would jump on me to get all her skills just like you are saying Katarina doing to you. I took my chance and timed her when she came in.

So my idea is for you to predict that she is gonna jump, lay your W where she is gonna land behind you, Q then E E repeat. Lv 6 same thing but throw in ulti after W after her jump behind you and then Q E E repeat

Basically once she Shunpo on you during an attempt to harass her with Noxious Blast (this is the most typical time she will jump on for counter harass) just Miasma on top of yourself/her then proceed to kite her (she has no form of CC or snares) whilst using Twin Fang & Noxious Blast as you kite. You'd best start with Boots of Speed+ Health Potions to enable this or else you won't be able to keep your distance.

Keep in mind to save your ultimate to interrupt her Death Lotus unless your going for the kill then as in the above circumstances you can just Miasma > Twin Fang > Petrifying Gaze > Noxious Blast > Ignite > Twin Fang > Collect kill. If shes Shunpo on you, you can ult her with safe knowledge that she won't Shunpo behind you to avoid the stun or away to one of her minions. When you do interrupt her Death Lotus with your ultimate you want to try to go for the kill since her ultimate has a relatively small cooldown particularly in comparison to your cooldown thus leaving a phase where your vulnerable to its full blow. You can always stack 1-2 Doran's Ring to make you more resilient to her burst.

Katarina only has two damaging spells before 6 with Bouncing Blade and Shunpo. If she shunpos into point blank range, she's exposing herself to your full combo with no really good answer of her own. Past level 6, if you ult her while she's in her ult, it interrupts the channel, and assuming you have the ability to burst her down without her escaping, she basically becomes a free kill at that point.

Of all the champs to have a problem with...you have trouble with kat? If kat is dumb enough to get into close range eat her alive. You probably just need more practice with cass. Harass is your power. Make kat pay for every attack on you.

I don't see how a cass can lose to a kat. Just like Jeffy said, practice cass.
