General information

katarina Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Voracity

P

When an enemy champion dies within 3 seconds of Katarina damaging them, her cooldowns are reduced by 15 seconds. When she picks up a dagger, she damages nearby enemies and lowers Shunpo's cooldown.

Bouncing Blade

Q

Katarina throws a dagger at a target enemy that bounces to two additional enemies. Afterwards, the dagger lands on the ground.

Preparation

W

Katarina throws a dagger in the air where she's standing, granting her bonus move speed and the ability to pass through units until it lands.

Shunpo

E

Katarina blinks to the targeted unit or to a dagger, dealing damage to the the nearest enemy in range.

Death Lotus

R

Katarina spins in place, channeling daggers that are thrown at up to three nearby enemies. Enemies hit by the daggers take damage and receive the Grievous Wounds debuff.

Quick tips to play Katarina

Go for either long trades or short trades depending on your ability to reset the cooldown on your

E. Continue until you are able to kill your opponent with the next combo.

Katarina's prime time is when at least one opponent is within kill range - flank your opponents and catch them off-guard.

Keep enemy ability and item cooldowns in mind in case you go all in and suddenly find yourself unable to get the reset to back out again.
