Tips Against Katarina in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Yamikaze says “She plays very passive at lvl 1, farming safely with Q. If she uses Q to harass you, just zone her from CS. Try to harass as much as possible with your [[Steel Tempest]] at early levels. When she gets lvl 3, she can all in you. You can predict where her daggers will land, so move away from it before she can [[Shunpo]] to them. You have a huge advantage if you both fight in a minion wave, as you can dash around and dodge most of her abilities. When she hits 6 and ults, you want to [[Wind wall]] and then [[Sweeping Blade]] through her, so the wall blocks out most of the damage. **When** you are going for the tornado, wait using it and bait out her E, or beyblade her. ”

lkycch says “If your team is all squishy or has no cc, I suggest dodging in champ select. You need to E her if she engages so that she wastes her Shunpo earlier. If she starts to spin, Q+W+Q her as quickly as you can; the less time she spins for the less damage she does. Don't let her Shunpo onto you, as you don't want to waste your ult on yourself. Remember: Summoner's Rift is a 5V5, not a 1v1. You don't have to stay in lane and suffer a losing matchup!”
Polarshift says “Move away from her daggers and try to burst her in teamfights. Keeping the wave at your side of the lane or shoving her in is the best way to play out this lane. Just use your superior waveclearing ability to prevent fighting her. Don't underestimate her early damage, but she shouldn't be able to stick on you. If she dashes on you, use your EWQ combo to proc Phase Rush or Overload and kite her out.”
Yeager says “Katarina likes being pushed in early levels because she can cheese at lvl 1-3 and pick up some kills on bad opponents. Don't hard shove the wave but slow push it, so if she decides to engage on you, your minion wave will be bigger and do more damage to her. Walk in the opposite side of where her (Q)dagger is going, so you don't get hit by the AOE damage whenever she steps on the daggers on the ground. If you succesfully dodge the daggers on the ground, you win all trades because her damage is gone. Just make sure that you don't use your ball blindly while her E shunpo is up, because she can easily dodge it. Force and bait her abilities with autoattack, and then use your abilities as soon as she uses shunpo to a location. There is a short delay before she can use shunpo again.”
Yeager's Master Orianna guide by Yeager | Orianna Player
Drewmatth Taliyah says “MELEE = PUSH EARLY (LEVELS 1-2) - CARE FOR GANKS! (SPAM Q'S TILL 50-60% MANA). Doran Ring + 2 Pots + Another Ring + early MR + Merc / Banshees. Get also Refillable if those 2 pots were not enough. Get Time Warp Tonic/Minion Demat for surival/fast push. Hardest matchup by far because she can just roam as a 0-2 on your bot and even if you ping they might die for no reason/int. I perma ban this champion because its the easiest to lose to WITHOUT DIRECTLY FEEDING HER (she's also impossible to kill on lane if she's a dia+ otp). Survivable with an early magic resist item such as Null Mantle or Negatron Cloak and also Exhaust for her ult or Barrier/Heal. I recomend Exhaust because we don't have a hard CC spell to nullify her ult down ( she will most often flash+jump+ult when the CC spells are down anyway if she's good, but Exhaust can deal with that) . When she does not have a dagger already set up on the ground go and Q her but stay far away from her daggers. Later on in teamfights unless she is a very good player she will struggle because of your Exhaust and other CC spells from your teammates. Target her down and you should be okay if she was not overfed by this point. Her roaming potential is on par with yours minus the ultimate, so be extremely careful on both roaming and FOLLOWUPS on her roams. NEVER try to outplay a Katarina simply because of her dashes. Play relatively safe until 6 then try to do a good roam, but beware of the followup. You should roam only if your teammates will remain above 50 percent HP after your gank (!!!!) - so that when she follows they would actually have a chance to survive and also Katarina would not get any resets. Ping like a maniac anytime she roams !!! Ban her if you lose more than twice and she gets fed on bot/top and you could not follow (or roam first and do your best on ganks OR ask for camp from your jg but a good kata will just jump back to base).”
TALIYAH PRIMER: Ultimate Guide to Taliyah MID by Drewmatth by Drewmatth Taliyah | Taliyah Player
eiensiei says “REACTIVE lane, not proactive. At level 1, I'll E-AA and after that I'll only poke with E. At level 2 she usually looks for an opportunity to Q+E+AA+dagger passive+electrocute and burst me down, so I take W second and negate a lot of her damage while I out-trade her with E-AA (and I keep autoattacking as she runs away). Fighting in my minion wave also draws aggro and makes it harder for her to win trades. At level 3 she definitely wants to go in, so I stay out of her Q range - unless I have significantly more HP than her (or have Barrier up) and want to bait her. I'll shield myself as she jumps and will use E and keep autoattacking her, holding my Q until she has no more E resets. Most of the time she forgets I still have Barrier and keeps fighting me. She's the ultimate snowballing champion, so she's constantly looking for roams and I need to keep the pixel bush towards bot lane warded, or my own jungle to see her if she takes that path.”
[10.19] eiensiei's guide to Lux | Mid by eiensiei | Lux Player
Yeager says “In laning phase you should avoid pushing after the first 2 waves because she has a really strong level 3. The moment you use E, she will jump on you, so don't waste it until her jump is on CD. Lategame you will oneshot her if you hit E, but if you miss it, you are dead. ”
Yeager's Master Zoe Guide by Yeager | Zoe Player
Sylvan Lore says “Katarina is a really high risk high reward champion that can easily get out of control. Trade carefully with her early and never walk near a dagger on the ground if you want to trade with her. Also if she is chasing you and lands a Q, do not run directly away into the dagger about to be placed, but instead turn and walk towards her. This may seem weird, but it will serious drop off the damage she can do to you. Never underestimate her all in damage after level 6. You win this matchup by landing short QW trades on her when she is trying to cs with her E. Recommend: Barrier and Dmg Build. Use the Vs. AP Assassin build only if behind, but a banshees is definitely an option in this matchup. ”
[10.19] Command: Attack - One Trick Orianna Mid by Sylvan Lore | Orianna Player
xXkillercrackXx says “Tough to lane against due to her ability to zone you away with her daggers. Landing a wild cards on her is nigh impossible due to the mobility she has with shunpo. She can't easily follow roams either, but be careful because she can turn up to a fight and clean up very easily. You can gold card her later on to stop her ultimate, so you can win out later.”

sweodigaming says “Skilled match-up, she has really good engage level 3 even when her E recently got nerfed. Don't play to aggressive, you could easily get punished. If she ever R's try to stun her with your R or W. They have low cast time. ”
[10.19] the Dark Child - All Viable Roles and Runes by sweodigaming | Annie Player
7daysko says “Katarina has some insane damage, especially if she snowballs. However, her daggers help you predict how she will engage and you can stop her ulti with both Q and W. Did I also mention how your passive means she can't reset her cooldowns if you're killed? If you are fast enough, this lane should be a breeze. ”
FalleN3 says “Play this match-up reasonably passive and don't give her free kills. Harass her as often as you can when she goes to last hit a minion. Stun her whenever she tries to ulti you. DO NOT use (R) Tibbers to stun her as there is a high chance she can leap away before it lands. Instead, use your (Q) Disintegrate to stun her and then hit her with (R) Tibbers. Be aware of her leaving lane for roaming kills. This often happens and she will get fed from other lanes if you don't keep track and ping or follow her. Katarina is squishy and you should have no problem 100 - 0 her after level 6.”

Veigarv2 says “care her cutlass / gunblade spike She will look to roam alot so give your team vision. you outscale her really hard later on. Make sure to keep checking her inventory for a cutlass / gunblade. once she gets it you can no longer walk up as she will slow you and all in you. go electrocute corruption potion timewarp tonic and biscuits in this lane, you need sustain. you can oneshot her. if you struggle in this matchup you can go abbysal mask and spellbook resolve like vs Fizz”

crabbix says “Hold stun to interrupt her ult, and try not to go anywhere without vision.”
fwii says “Look for trades early and avoid stepping on top of her daggers. Hard to win after level 6 or if she builds Seeker's Armguard first. ”
Scyrine says “don't let her get level 3 before you, because she can combo and kill you early and snowball off you. you win against her, if your reaction time is crisp you can sit near a dagger and wait for her to engage.”
Yasukeh says “ Be aware of where she throws her daggers, and if she can trade on you freely without giving you a chance to answer. You can often try to bait her by standing on her daggers and forcing her to take several autos if she wants to use them. Be diligent in telling your team where she is, because no matter how far ahead you get on her, she can still roam bot and get a triple kill and be back into the game. ”

Yeager says “Do not push the lane early game. She can all-in you from lvl 2 and win the trades. If you freeze the lane infront of your tower, she can't kill you. If the katarina doesn't have cleanse, she should be a free kill if you ping your jungler to come.”

RezoneVerified says “Land a grenade as soon as she Ults or comes into melee distance. Unless Kata gets fed early she should be easy to deal with due to being a melee AP assassin.”

PH45 says “If she tries to all in you you can try to throw your bubble on to where she will land so she will fall asleep pretty quickly. Bursts pretty hard so play causiously”
FalleN3 says “This is a skill match-up but you need to be carelful of taking loads of free harass from her (Q). If she walks up to last-hit a minion you can possibly trade her. If you are really not confidnet you can consider taking exhaust and use it on her when she ulti's you, I personally wouldn't bother though. You can use your troll-poll (E) when she ulti's you, then use the rest of your combo to kill her. Zhonya can be a nice item to pick up early too, especially if the top-laner / jungler are AD champs.”
Fizz Mid | FalleN3's Guide to Fizz by FalleN3 | Fizz Player
Dr Eggmund says “Very easy late game of course but early game don't stand near the daggers and when she E's out of position punish her for it. Her all in isn't as strong as yours. If either of you decide to all in then dodge Kat's ult with your Pool and Kat will die spinning and doing nothing.”

Glasletter says “She places targets for you to bind her at. She can't do much more than try and proc electrocute and hope for the best.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Since she can jump straight to you, I'd highly recommend not using your E aggressively. Wait till she ever jumps on you, then use it. Don't use your E in a panic otherwise this'll get you killed.”

Reason97 says “Katarina can do a lot of damage, but puts herself in a lot of danger to do it. Keep an eye out for whenever she looks like she going in for an engage, and save your stun for it, since her diving in to damage makes her very easy to hit with it. If she gets ahead, she'll be an issue, but almost all of her character depends on her getting ahead to be useful. so as long as you can avoid feeding her, it should be fine. ”
A general guide to Anivia, The Cryophoenix by Reason97 | Anivia Player
Fuzzmonkey says “Another skill based match up, but you can go hard on her early game as long as you avoid passive daggers. Chains work well on Katarina.”

AP WormMaW Mid says “Good old Katarina, I guess anyone who plays mages knows how annoying her jumps can be, together with her damage output. I rated her as really high, even though really precise gameplay, can make this matchup quite easy. It means, that this lane might go really well or really badly. If you position yourself right and farm, she shouldn't be able to kill you and if you wait for right moment, you can even get kill 1v1 against her, but as I said, you just have to play perfectly. What is problem though, is her roaming potential. If she gets kills from other lanes, you mostly can't simply follow, unless you have really well warded jungle and you know where you are going, but mostly it's not worth it. So it's a bit of risk, but in lategame again, if you position yourself right, you might get win condition on your side again after you hit level 16, because she will have problem dealing with your poke and even get on you if you stand far away. If you get your Lich Bane, you can even oneshot her in a single combo, unless she uses Zhonya. To wrap it up - matchup is hard, but playable as any other and here it's really important to play it right - then it will become way easier than it seems to be.”

Yuki H. says “At the most fundamental level, she is melee, and she will definitely use some abilities on minions. Just make sure to not get hit by free poke which isn't even aimed at you. Punish her cooldowns and you have the upper hand while in an auto attack combat.”

BloooodTV says “D-Blade. Katarina is very passive lvl 1, as she doesn't really have any way of doing anything. She will just farm with Q and setup for lvl 2. Zone her off cs early as much as you can try to poke her with Q or go in if she tries to get farm. Get away from her daggers until you have an item advantage. You have a massive advantage with a minion wave, but so does she. Make sure she doesn't have E up so she can't dodge your nado, or just beyblade her so she can't react fast enough (watch out for Faker out here dodging it). Once she goes for all-ins at level 6 you can windwall her R and if she keeps her r going after that like a sped just smack her and get as much damage off as you can. Also if you have nado you can just E+Q her and kill her if she doesn't have Shunpo reset. Good chance you win just watch out for her all-ins and watch out for ganks. Outscales you depending on comps. Take Conq. ”

FalleN3 says “This is a skill match-up but you need to be carelful of taking loads of free harass from her (Q). If she walks up to last-hit a minion you can possibly trade her. Zhonya can be a nice item to pick up after your gun-blade, especially if the top-laner / jungler are AD champs. Consider starting boots and health potions as they will enable you to dodge her daggers easier. You can try to bait her ultimate and then shroud yourself as you run away or (R) onto a minion to escape it. Once her ultimate is on CD, you can go for the kill. Otherwise, if you have a jungler with hard CC they can lock down her ultimate as you fight during a gank. She will roam, be sure to follow or be ahead of her.”

ziolo to noob says “Katarina is one of the champs that only high elo players can benefit from. If she plays aggresively, she wins with you most of the time, shes ungankable if you dont have a strong jungler. If you play vs bad Katarina you can kill her at every stage of the game, you can rush banshee if you feel like it.”

Marky 2 Butts says “Kat level 1-5 doesn't do too much damage, if you can push in early waves to get level 2 first and constantly harass her with Q. If you do this, then you should be able to get level 6 quicker and with ignite and ult be able to kill her. If she gets a kill on you early this could switch the threat to a major as Kat can deal a lot of burst damage. ”

You can also cancel her ult with either your Q or your own ult, so as long as you don't waste them willy nilly, she put's herself at high risk to try to all in you. The biggest issue is just the somewhat unpredictability of her daggers bounce. can cost you your passive if you're a bit closer to minions then you realize. ”

Mythical ZOE says “-High burst damage -Had a blink -She can easily dodge your abilities ”
Veralion says “HoB/Sword. This lane is balanced on a razor's edge and you'll need to focus up early. Other champions are able to snowball a game off of 3 or 4 kills, but this bitch only needs 1 to start murdering everyone. You CANNOT die. Period. Katarina lives and dies by her dagger placement. The trick to beating her is getting a feel for where her Q is going to land and being anywhere but there when it does if you aren't in a position to trade. It will always land a short distance behind the first target it hits. Once you have that figured out, you can farm with relative confidence and safety while you wait for a favorable moment. Hail of Blades with skilling Q at level 2 completely out-trades her and will make her scared to walk up for farm. If you're healthy, keep your mouse over that dagger and stand in range ready for her to E in. Hit her with a point blank E and unload on her. She will absolutely MELT and will freak out trying to retreat. The lane dynamic changes rather rapidly if you mess this up and let her escape without retaliation, though. It's best to wait until level 3 to begin trading, though. If you're down any health at all, you are on the defensive. Remember, you CANNOT die to her. She can take many different keystones. DH is the easiest to handle, followed by Conq, with Electrocute being the toughest. If she Q’s you from max range, you can safely W and run back. If she Q’s you from midrange, run anywhere BUT back. The dagger will land right where you’re running and she will be in range to E and chunk you down. Do not ever attempt to tank her ult. It does too much damage and you will die. Either interrupt it with your ult or flash the hell away. If you decide to all in her from range and not hold ult to stop hers, you’d better be damn sure you kill her before her ult gets more than a few ticks off. Don’t go for a roam if she can follow you. The last thing you want is to lure her to 3 half health teammates and set her up for a free triple. If she starts to follow, it's best to set up in a bush and catch her facechecking rather than let her get to a big fight. ”

Big Shawn says “This match-up is pretty even. Katarina relies on her blades and Ekko on his predictions. If you land the perfect W-Ability on her, you will dominate. Should you fall behind though, she will turn into a threat. Kata can easily punish you and his hard for your jungler to gank. Therefore minimize your mistakes and punish hers.”

ai darkfluid says “Strange enough as it is, Viktor can actually murder Katarina. W>R onto her R post-6 and she has to either react with a dash somewhere else, where you can promptly blast her away with abilities, or take the stun to the face. On the off chance she tries to dash on you, make sure you don't path onto her daggers, as that's where a majority of her early combo is. Spam ping when she's missing, as it only gets out of hand when she comes back to lane with 3 kills from bot. Preferred rune: Aery/Electrocute”

xtrinity01x says “Average Kats are okay..but good Kats are hell. even if you try to predict where she goes, she just dashes all over the place and its difficult to land a single root. Bully her lvl 1-3 and then try to bait out her ult because since you have to get close to ult, she'll probably try to counter it by ulting and btw, that thing hurts a lot.”

She can build Cloths into Armguard without really sacrificing anything.

Gageowago says “Stay off her daggers and watch out for the level 2 Katarina combo because it will put you to half health. Abuse her hard at level 1 and play safe afterwards. Once she uses q or w it goes on a long cooldown so poke her when she uses them. Also if she uses her shunpo without getting a dagger you have about 12 or more seconds to punish her because it goes on a massive cooldown if she doesn't reset it. Post-6 save charm for if she ults on you. -------(Patch 9.23) Katarina is also a Conqueror abuser. She can easily kill you and heal from it with new Conqueror. Stay back and avoid daggers even when ahead.”

Lil Tidepod says “Katarina is a little bit unique with assassins in terms of just how insanely mobile she is, and that she doesn't have to always get super close to deal big damage. It's kind of odd how much damage just throwing her dagger onto a minion that then bounces onto you can do. She does, however, need to get close to finish you off. Her blink makes her a problem, but if she does get close to you, lock her down with an E W for the root and throw a Q onto her. After enough times, she won't be able to retaliate anymore, and will play safe. Push the wave under the turret, because she can't farm under turret really at all.”
PRoli03 says “She is weak right now but you must care for her daggers and keep your w for her ultimate”
Sanctuar says “Katarina may have a strong killing potential, but so do you. Dodge the daggers as she will jump to them to deal damage. If she intends to all-in on you with her ultimate, use yours to stun her immediately.

Hold onto your e and don't use it until you're sure its going to hit because once your e is down you're very vulnerable.

serruh says “this matchup should NOT be an issue whatsoever, she has a very weak laning phase, weak early levels and is actually very easy to setup ganks vs and set behind. the problem comes from when she roams around the map and gets ahead through other means. in those cases you usually cant deal with her(as your root doesnt stop her ult) and she just becomes impossible to fight. will probably lower her threat level once she gets nerfed, honestly think she's just overtuned atm.”

t3rminated says “Katarina is a really, really annoying matchup. She just hops around everywhere and avoids your combo. The reason why I put this in major and not extreme is because they are very predictable. If you can see that their dagger is going to you, you can predictively shoot q or e and combo them. Play safe under tower with good positioning and you should be fine. Expect a really boring laning phase with no deaths and hope that the Kat gets impatient and does something reckless. Also make sure that Kat doesn’t roam or at least warn other lanes. If the kat roams you basically lose. Try to deny them from doing this by shoving the wave and pushing for plates (make sure you know where the jungler and Kat is). Or you can counter roam. ”

Eccentricks says “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Oh sorry, yes, Katarina. This matchup is really tough, so bring ignite and be prepared for a wild ride. Start Dorans, you will need it. Do the thing you do with Zed and harass with Q when she steps up for minions. Once she is low, or she engages, since she is a fucking rabid bitch who is out for blue blood, dash in (or out) and hit her in the face with E and violently unshackle your combo upon her. After that is over, you probably will be dead, because Katarina... But, if you do it at a good time (like when your jungle is there, her's isn't), you can secure a single kill, and from there, push it in, back, buy items, and stay determined and focused at all times. Ask yourself questions about what to do next and try to remember where the jungle is, as they help her a lot. If you feed, however, the match is lost. But if you are down one kill, don't fret, or rotate, you can come back with smart play, think about what she is doing wrong and look for mistakes. Try to not focus on CS while she is in the wave, as you will probably die. Try to poke her instead and then back up, because she usually will retaliate and you need to be quick about it.”
8wolf says “Insane mobility and burst damage. The dagger resets make her a dodging machine. The only reason why she is not an extreme threat is that your ult can easily cancel hers and disengage. You might want to take exhaust for the times in which running away is not an option.”
Daedralus says “Early game is extremely easy as she won't have enough damage to kill anyway, but you can also heal it off very easily. Your ult counters her ult and even if you don't have it, by activating your E, you will take much less damage, and can also stop her ult with the fear. Additionally, a well timed Q can allow you to travel with her when she uses her E, making it a super simple lane.”

Maybe try e'ing once she ults and then r'ing out of the range of it until she is slept. Consider barrier. Also, I've heard that if you're scared of her all ins early, armor is more effective in runes.”

Try to use the Q shield to counter her Q damage and get free harass in lane. Don't stand on top of her daggers and always be ready to hit her with QE if she takes a risky dagger. She is squishy with her build so just look to oneshot her after your powerspike. Cancel her R with your Q if you are looking for an all-in!”

She can do nothing to you, she's too squishy to eat your bushwack harrass, she's free food for your jungler, and landing E & Q against her is a breeze because she has to jump on you to hurt you. Your ult interrupts her and will run her down and help you dive her. she won't be able to waveclear. she won't be able to poke you out or put damage on you. she won't be able to all-in you until the point where she's probably already been shut down. her only hope is to hit 6 and roam or to gank you, but you should follow her or coordinate with your jungler to countergank.”

DravensBukkake says “Ignite/Exhaust matchup. Level 1, make sure you're not in her Q range, AA her everytime she walks up for CS. So free to harass her. Level 2 she wouldn't dive you, unless you're directly ontop of her daggers. A trick that pisses off kat players is to place soldiers ontop of your minions when they're low to harass her trying to CS, and ontop of daggers when she throws them. So if she ever E's in on them, you get a free AA. General tip for melee matchups, if you ever get to AA them use Q immediately and AA another to proc electrocute. IF KATARINA USES E DIRECTLY ONTOP OF YOU, without landing on a dagger so she doesn't get resets, ult IMMEDIATELY so she is a sitting duck.”

Marumo says “Threat level 3-9. My gut tells me to put Katarina higher in terms of threat, but there's a good reason I haven't. Katarina depends entirely on her player. A good Katarina will have you farming under tower, warding hard and playing as if it were a buffed Fizz. In contrast bad Katarina will feed you free Q stacks, dash into your stun and allow you to scale as if you were against an AD soraka mid. This is unlike the other 5 threats that I have because most of them can beat you without it really being a great test of skill.”

Euphoric Toaster says “Before 6 you can poke/harass/deny her pretty hard, just be sure to watch out for daggers she might be looking to Shunpo to. After 6, you have to hold onto your E stun pretty much for the rest of the laning phase (unless you're quickly clearing a wave from a distance before backing) so that you can stun her if she tries to Ult near you. Holding onto your stun negates most of the kill pressure she will have on you meaning shes going to be even or behind, making her pretty useless. She might eventually just sack the lane and look for roams for easy kills so just be sure to aggressively call her roams out to your team.”

After this, ward up, push her under tower, and force her to lose cs or get harassed.

CC Diana says “Unfortunately for Diana, Katarina is no longer a free matchup due to her rework in patch 6.22. To win this matchup you need to be mindful of where Katarina throws her daggers such as low health allied minions since her Q will ALWAYS land on the opposite side from where she threw it. Kat has two basic lane combos - one at level 2 and the other at level 3. Her level two combo is a simple Q -> E which she can use to quickly proc her passive and deal massive damage. Level 3 is where Kat becomes really dangerous. Her combo at this point will be E -> W -> Q -> E -> E -> Ignite (if she has it). This has the potential to completely 100 - 0 you. To avoid being oneshot, move in the opposite direction of where Kat's Q dagger lands so she cannot proc her passive damage. If she dashes onto you despite not getting any passive damage off, hit her with a Q and W to outtrade her. Once she hits 6, make sure you save your E for when she ults. Using your E before she ults will give her an opening to deal massive damage to you.”

Watch out for her daggers; If she jumps to one while you're on it, you'll take some nasty damage and be in range for her to unload on you.”

Your passive negates a lot of her damage, you have more mobility after level 6, and most importantly, your Q cancels her ultimate. Safe your Q for this purpose after level 6. Max E.”

SrSuders says “Katarina Mains sind durchausfähig Talon's in der Laningphase zu besiegen. Die W sollte man nur im Gegenangriff verwenden, da sie sich sonst mit der E hinter dir bewegt und du deine Stacks nurnoch schwer vollbekommst. Alternativ könne man auch mit der Talon Q engagen und die Talon W beim Escapen drauf werfen, hierbei sollte man den Dolchen ausweichen, falls nicht möglich kann man noch die Talon Passive auslösen.”
Rarely Pro says “Katarina is a pain, she can burst you down sometimes so quickly that it can give you wipe-lash. With Katarina's Q's you will notice daggers on the ground... she can jump to them and then ult you, try to land the edge of your cage on the dagger just as she jumps so you can get a free stun on her so you can perform your burst combo (W + Q + R | In that order)”

LyndonK9 says “Katarina has a hard time farming under tower so push her into tower and try to poke her when she goes for CS. It makes you susceptible to ganks and she can engage on you easier so ward and stay away from her daggers. If you get her low you can try and charm and kill her. She will most likely look for roams so try and push the wave in and follow. A lot of people think you can just charm Katarina after she jumps to her daggers but her movement speed makes it super difficult, and it's really hard to predict when she Es. The most important thing is when she ults she is an easy charm target. Especially in teamfights, save your charm for her. ”

After she got hextech gunblade you cant 1v1 her, so pushing in and roaming is the best answer.”

Consider buying Zhonya or stopwatch early to deny her burst damage once she gets ahead and follow her around the map since she will roam quite often due to her assassin nature”

She won't be able to do anything against you on level 1 and 2. Poke her with Q and E and she can't come close to farm. Make her low enough and you can kill her. Try holding on to your Chaos Storm so you can cancel her ultimate if she uses her combo on you. If you know that her Shunpo is on cooldown then don't hesitate to use your Chaos Storm to try and kill her unless she is near her tower.

Arcuzz says “For me, Katarina is a easy match. For others could be a pain in the ass. Keep in mind that she can kill you 1 vs 1. Your main task is to poke and harass him from afar. She cannot reach you because your role is to play safe. Don't try to force a fight, only sabotages his farming.”
Sadmanv2 says “stay away from that floor dagger, minions are great against kat.”
