General info

This comp revolves around the Academy trait and slow rolls for Garen and Katarina. Katarina is the main damage carry of the comp, so Garen will use defensive items while Katarina will use your offensive items.

When to make

Go for this comp if you find lots of copies of Academy units early on. Also, having a Hextech Augment that gives you more rerolls will be very beneficial for this comp.

  • After you've hit enough 3 star units start catching up in levels and adding in more units to complete the team comp.

Game plan
Early Game

Putting together Academy units along with another supporting unit like a Protector or an Assassin will be helpful to buff up Garen and Katarina.

Mid Game

At this point, you should be able to fit in 4 Academy along with some supporting units.

Additional comp tips
  • Getting Katarina 3 star can be difficult when you're mainly slow rolling at level 5 to find Garen. Ideally you find a good amount of copies and can naturally upgrade Katarina when you are catching up in levels.
