Katarina, the Sinister Blade


Katarina is a mobile magic damage based assassin carry.  She specializes in poking enemies to lower health then going all in and bursting them down for kills.  Her role is not to do as much damage as possible but to surgically pick out the enemy carries and wipe the floor with the rest of the enemy team.  Her mobility and damage output makes her very good at what she does.  Crowd control and magic resist are your friends, you will need them.

When facing a Katarina take every early advantage you can to harass or deny farm as her only ranged attack is her Q, Bouncing Blades. A good Katarina will always keep her shunpo available to back out of lane if she is ganked or to secure a kill. As a result, you can rarely if ever rely on your jungle to do anything more then force her back to her tower unless you can get Katarina to use her shunpo just before your jungler is about it gank.  Magic resist is almost always required to be successful against Katarina.


Crowd control is a must when facing a Katarina especially having the ability to interrupt her ultimate.  Any incapacitation crowd control will stop it such as a stun or silence.  She can deal devastating amounts of damage in a matter of seconds to your entire team if left alone.

- Katarina requires no resource, her abilities have no cost except waiting for the coodown.


- She has very high burst AOE damage and can be devastating to a team when left alone.


- Her Shunpo ability provides Katarina with great mobility, moving to enemies, friendlies or ever Sight Wards.


- Katarina's high burst when comboing all of her abilities is enough to kill any remotely low or squishy champion.

- To auto attack Katarina must be in melee range.


- Compared to a more classic mages she has less single target burst damage.


- Katarina has no crowd control ability.


- All forms of crowd control will prevent Katarina for being the natural assassin she is.


- Katarina can be counterpicked if picked too early during Champion Select.
