Future Katarina mains, I am here to show you some relatively basic tips and tricks with Kat, and a build to get you going. My username on LOL is Brofish, I got diamond playing gangplank like a madman in season 5, and I have taken a liking to the new Kat so I wanted to help out some people who still use solomid with learning Kat, I also have an outdated youtube acc that I plan on using once again so check it out when I have posted some Kat videos (I will be posting the videos from my channel in this guide as I release them). https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWx1JvDZuwR7Q2qlKTunMXw (<< Old outdated Gp stuff on my channel with some montages, if you want to check them out)

Thanks for taking the time to look into my guide. Please feel free to ask any questions I will be happy to answer them!

Kat is still a pretty new champ as of late so we can expect rito to do their thing and balance her out if there are any issues, but I plan on keeping up to date on my guide, but as time goes on things may get a little outdated, such as stats, when they begin changing ratios and numbers on her abilities.

Right now I am still learning her, I just want to share what I know, so if you know something I do not, let me know, I am just trying to help you guys play at a higher level.

Pros

-Great snowball potential

-High maneuverability

-Great at roaming

-Strong mid game

-Fun to play

-Really hard to kill (if built and played well)

Cons

-Somewhat challenging to play

-Can be killed easily (not played correctly)

-Weak early game

-Shut down easily if focused

Katarina is at her worst during this point in the game, depending on how well you do, it can determine the out come of the mid-late game for you, but there is a little room for you to come back in the mid game if you don't do well now.

Your main priority at this point is survival, until you gain a couple of levels and start being able to do some dmg. There is a little bit of room at the start to poke with bouncing blades, but you should focus on farming with it so you can secure minions and not take dmg while doing so. Don't worry about doing your w-q-e-e combo just yet, you will need more cdr before that happens, just hold on until you get some items and levels.

(Video coming soon!)

At this point you are still in laning phase, but you may have items and some levels, and you are now ready to roam. Keep a close eye on the map, look at the enemy laners HP to determine if the gank will be successful before you even try, or if you are not ready to roam just yet focus on winning your lane. At this point you can begin using the combo W-Q-E-E to do some dmg, just be careful when using it because there is still some time in between shunpos and picking up the blades so the enemy can dish out some damage at this time. If you did not do to well during the early game, roaming and hopefully being successful at it can help get you back into the game, or maybe your jungler can help out.

Time for team fighting

Unless you are doing very well, you should not be the one starting fights, however, since you are an assassin you have the ability to catch people out of position, just be wary of enemies luring you into more of their teammates, and as Kat you can move very quickly and possibly leave your own team in the dust, leaving you with no one to jump to.

The best things you can do in the late game include

-Catching people out when they are separated from their team

-Preforming the following combo on groups of enemies bouncing blade (Q) Shunpo to blade (E) pick up blade (-) shunpo (E) Preparation (W) Ult (R)

-Sticking with your team so you have allies to dash to, making you a much more difficult champ to kill/catch out of position

Focus on what the enemy team is doing when you lay out blades from your q, some enemies may be focusing on them getting ready to catch you when you shunpo to the blade, so don't always go in. Wait for your team to start the fight then back them up, or attempt to do some damage to someone out of position and back off quickly to your team for safety, if you have cdr from your items, higher levels (11-18) you can make your combo almost instant (if you can do it fast enough) but this does not mean they cannot still kill you with cc.

Unless you are incredibly fed, don't go starting fights try to stick with your team, when you are out of position and you have no one to jump to, you are easy to kill.

Best of luck fellow Katarina mains
