Katarina’s Combo

Best combo for Katarina:

Skill 1 -> Skill 2 -> AA -> Skill 3 -> AA -> Skill 3

Throw a Skill 1, Bouncing Dagger to your target then activate Skill 2, Preparation as you’re walking towards the enemy to set a dagger to return to. Auto-attack once if you are close enough or activate Skill 3, Shunpo on the enemy just make sure to target towards the Dagger from your 1st then auto-attack once on the enemy before using Skill 3, Shunpo on the Dagger you left with your Skill 2 to disengage. This is perfect for activating Electrocute while leaving little counterplay options for the enemy.

 Skill 1 -> Skill 3 -> AA -> Skill 2 -> Skill 3 -> AA -> Skill 3

This combo allows you to land two Voracity Dagger attacks and two to three autos.

Skill 3 -> Skill 2 -> Skill 1 -> Ultimate -> Skill 3 -> AA

All-in with ultimate

Skill 1 -> Skill 3 -> AA -> Skill 2 -> Ultimate -> AA -> Skill 3

These are the basic variations of her all-in combo. The first style is more reliable as the Dagger from Skill 1, Bouncing Blade can be used for a Skill 3, Shunpo jump if the enemy used their mobility tools but the second combo deals more damage in a shorter time frame.

How to play:

Katarina is a mid-lane magic damage assassin. She is a melee champion and can struggle a lot in the early game when trying to walk up and last hit minions. Once Katarina hits level 5 and gets access to Death Lotus you have a great opportunity to roam around the map and get advantages elsewhere or try to engage on the enemy mid-lane champion to try and get a solo kill. One important thing to note is that Shunpo’s cooldown gets reduced when picking up daggers from the floor so make sure you keep that in mind as this gives Katarina a lot of mobility!

Katarina’s Abilities

(Passive) Voracity

Whenever an enemy champion dies that Katarina has damaged in the last 3 seconds, her remaining ability cooldowns are reduced. This passive can sometimes make Death Lotus (Ultimate) available multiple times during a teamfight which can be huge!

When using other abilities like Bouncing Blade (1st Ability) and Preparation (2nd Ability), daggers will be left on the floor for a while. When Katarina picks up the Daggers, she slashes at all nearby enemies dealing magic damage.

(Skill 1) Bouncing Blades

Katarina throws a dagger, dealing magic damage to the target and 2 nearby enemies. The Dagger then ricochets to the ground behind the initial strike point.

This makes it a really good ability to set up Shunpo (3rd Ability) allowing you to jump behind the enemy to do a lot of damage. Bouncing Blade can be used as a poking tool in the laning phase as Katarina has no mana so you don’t need to worry about not having enough mana to use abilities.

(Skill 2) Preparation

Katarina tosses a dagger in the air and gains a short burst of movement speed. You want to use Preparation just before using Death Lotus (Ultimate) so you will be able to get more damage from your passive as you’re moving around in your ultimate.

In other situations, you can use Preparation before you engage so you have a dagger that you can use Shunpo (3rd Ability) to jump back to, or to deal a bit more damage when you jump onto the enemy with your passive.

(Skill 3) Shunpo

Katarina blinks to a location near a dagger or unit, dealing magic damage to the nearest enemy. You can also blink to allies, minions, blast cones and honey fruits. If you pick up a dagger. your Shunpo cooldown will be greatly reduced.

Most of the time you want to dash to a dagger so you can use the ability again after a few seconds. However, you can use Shunpo to dash elsewhere and use Preparation (2nd Ability) to drop a dagger on the floor so you can reset the cooldown.

(Ultimate) Death Lotus

Katarina rapidly throws blades at the 3 nearest enemy champions dealing magic damage and applying grievous wounds. This means most of the time you don’t need to buy items that have grievous wounds because your ultimate will help you reduce the healing of the enemy champions.

Katarina can move and throw blades for a few seconds. Before you use Death Lotus you want to try and use Bouncing Blade and Preparation before so you can catch daggers as you are moving around in your ultimate.
