Quick tips to play Katarina

In team fights, try to engage and use your Ultimate Death LotusR once the enemies CC abilities are down so they cannot interrupt your combo.

When looking to fight the enemy laner, try and wait for them to use an ability before going in. This will make the trade more favourable and the enemy will not be able to deal tons of damage back to you.

If you’re not able to kill the enemy laners, try and roam! Katarina is a very good roaming champion and can easily pick up kills in the side lane.
