Guide to Playing BoTRK Katarina

This new Katarina AD Tank build players are running is absolutely insane! Ever since Katarina's skills were given on-hit abilities, she's able to utilize items like Blade of the Ruined King and Titanic Hydra procs on her spells to great effect. Not only is she nearly unkillable, but she also gets a number of additional...fascinating effects...

This new Katarina AD Tank build players are running is absolutely insane! Ever since Katarina's skills were given on-hit abilities, she's able to utilize items like Blade of the Ruined King and Titanic Hydra procs on her spells to great effect. Not only is she nearly unkillable, but she also gets a number of additional...fascinating effects...

Check out the details on runes and builds below!

How to Play BoTRK Katarina
Abilities: Q, E, W then prioritize R > Q > E > W

Summoner Spells  [  or  ]

Starting Items: Long Sword + Health Potions

Strategy: Standard Katarina playstyle, but this build makes you much more tanky than usual. It also gives you more tank-killing potential.

Core Items: Blade of the Ruined King, Sorcerer's Shoes, Titanic Hydra, Riftmaker, Lichbane, Demonic Embrace

BoTRK Katarina Runes Setup

Primary: Conqueror, Triumph, Legend:Tenacity, Coup De Grace
Secondary: Conditioning, Overgrowth




How It Works

Blade of the Ruined King


Stats
+40 attack damage
+30% attack speed
+12% life steal

Passive
UNIQUE – MIST'S EDGE: Basic attacks deal (Melee 10% / Ranged 6%) of the target's current health bonus physical damage on-hit, capped at 60 bonus damage against minions and monsters.

UNIQUE – SIPHON: Basic attacks on-hit apply a stack to enemy champions for 6 seconds, up to 2 stacks. Attacking a champion with 2 stacks consumes them to deal 40 − 120 (based on level) bonus magic damage on-hit and steal 25% of their movement speed for 2 seconds (20 second cooldown).
This item provides an incredible number of uses for Katarina. Not only does she get the on-hit effects via her new buff, but also the movement speed siphon. This essentially replaces Gunblade and provides everything the Gunblade gave her and more. The new attack speed scaling on her ultimate also helps alleviate the lack of AP on BoTRK


Titanic Hydra


Stats
+30 attack damage
+500 health

Passive
UNIQUE – COLOSSUS: Gain bonus attack damage equal to 1% of maximum health.

UNIQUE – CLEAVE: Basic attacks deal (Melee 5 / Ranged 3.75) (+ (Melee 1.5% / Ranged 1.125%) bonus health) bonus physical damage on-hit to your target and (Melee 40 / Ranged 30) (+ (Melee 3% / Ranged 2.25%) bonus health) bonus physical damage to other enemies in a cone on-hit. Cleave's damage also applies to structures.
This item looks sooooo troll but ends up being incredibly nutty. The damage boost on-hit applies on her ultimate (just like every other on-hit), and gives her ultimate cone damage in all directions. It also makes Katarina very tanky and difficult to kill.


Massive Omnivamp and Damage

Combining Riftmaker, Conqueror, and Blade of the Ruined King gives Katarina an absolutely incredible amount of lifesteal, making her impossible to kill without crowd control. Her damage is also just as high as you'd expect from Katarina as an AP champion, but with the added bonus of dealing percent based damage via Blade of the Ruined King for maximum shredding.


Potential Pitfalls

Slightly Lower Burst Damage
This build deals plenty of damage, but overall Katarina does get higher scaling from AP. This means if you're into quick one-shots you may not find as much satisfaction from this build. This also means that the enemy team has slightly more margin of error for throwing CC out before you annihilate their team.


Countering BoTRK Katarina

Picking champions with strong crowd-control and building grievous wounds would do well in anti-Katarina comps.


Conclusions

BoTRK Katarina is extremely strong and has few real weaknesses. This build in particular gives her a lot more utility and stats than most Katarina players are used to having. After playing this build a few times I'd say this might actually be stronger than the Lichbane/Nashor's Tooth/Riftmaker build since it makes her incredibly hard to kill.

Suggested Tier: High Tier 1
