Combo Review #6: Katarina + Morgana

Leave a Comment

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's combo review, which features one of my personal favorite: a Katarina that's almost completely invulnerable to CC!

Synergizing purr-fectly with Morgana's single target isolation and AOE slow, Katarina also gains immunity to all AD based CC and for the large part, AP based CC as well! Check out the full details below:

Introduction

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's combo review, which features one of my personal favorites: a Katarina that's completely invulnerable to CC!

Synergizing purr-fectly with Morgana's single target isolation and AOE slow, Katarina also gains immunity to all AD based CC and for the large part, AP based CC as well! Check out the full details below:

Main Goal

The main goal of this combination is to funnel kills onto Katarina so she can snowball into quick resets for instantaneous pentakills via fully channeled ultimates.

The major weakness of Katarina's ultimate is of course, how easily it's stopped by a single crowd control effect. However, with Morgana's Black Shield (E) keeping her spinning away, this kitty's going far!

Additional Synergies

Where damage is Katarina's specialty, crowd control is Morgana's middle name (Morgana Crowd-control Fey).

Katarina's second major weakness is of course, chasing down enemies fleeing in terror as they realize she's about to get a pentakill. However, good ol' Morgana ultimate keeps them in place and going nowhere fast.

Alternative Tactics

Alternative tactics include other supportive champions to combine with Katarina such as:
  • Kayle - If damage is the biggest issue and not crowd control, Kayle can easily prevent any from being dealt, allowing Katarina free reign.
  • Lulu/Zilean - If you're snowballing hard enough, sometimes all you need is a little speed boost and a second chance. Both these champions provide similar benefits in this regard.
You could also run other 1v5 champions with Morgana such as:
  • Rengar - What's scarier than a Rengar jumping? How about an unstoppable Rengar jumping?
  • Fiddlesticks - Caw caw caw bye Janna!

Potential Difficulties

The major difficulty in this composition is of course the fact that Katarina needs to be in a position of power for this combo to be effective. Additionally, depending on if the enemy team is heavier in damage or crowd control, Kayle or Morgana alternate for the best support award.

If the all-or-nothing approach isn't your style, the ever popular Lux + Morgana combo is also extremely effective with the double binding eternal snare.

Conclusions

While Katarina is no longer the #1 assassin pick she used to be, this simply means that she's available almost 100% of the time in solo queue. If you enjoy being the center of attention, this combo might just be your key to success.
