I think this is better than rylai's since it provides 50%(?) slow AoE. prolly enough time for her to dish out full damage on her ult.
Should I build this when playing toplane?

why? you dont need to slow people as kat, youre picking kat for the damage she deals, and rylai's gives you more damage

also by building randuins not only are you lowering the damage of your ult but a 50% slow isnt going to stop people with gapclosers or any cc for you

It's not for running away, it's for the slow,armor and health. It's the toplane im talking about where many champs will jump in, stun you, do damage and jump out. with randuins, it will leave you at a much safer health cosidering the 70 armor and 500 health. this might be viable if you're behind as the slow will help in jungle ganks.

I don't see why you'd be playing Kat in top lane to begin with. She's an assassin. Can't really assassinate a Dr. Mundo or Nasus who can rush a visage and completely negate your damage.

I've done Kat vs Nasus actually, 2 or 3 times, it's actually a ridiculously easy lane. Max W, spam it on him all day and get him zoned from CS early on. :3

As someone who has played Dr. Mundo vs Katarina in top lane, I have to disagree. Only reason I won the lane is because the Kat started boots and I got an early kill in a really close level 2 fight because of that (if she would've had Doran's Shield like me she would've probably won), lane was still surprisingly hard after that though.

I stand corrected then. Carry on.


I still think it's a sub-par idea.

The problem with Randuins on Katarina is you lose something like 200 damage on your ult, and you're not going to fit it in while you're laning anyway after boots, haunting guise, zhonyas and deathcap/DFG. It would only be useful as a replacement for GA as a sixth item.

Basically MOBAFire.

^ Because usually, unless it's a tank, I'd kill the enemy at 6 and then buy Death cap. then mobility boots. So maybe I thought my 3rd item has to be randuins to unleash full damage of deathlotus. (Roaming mid that deals Phys damage like talon)
