Caitlyn Build / Runes
In LoL's classification, Caitlyn is a "Marksman". She can attack from a distance but on the other hand she is very fragile. She is an ad character, which means that she inflicts physical damage
She is mainly found on the botlane. Like most Marksman, she primarily uses her auto-attacks to inflict damage. Caitlyn has a sniper which gives her a longer range.
Late Game Items
Spell Skill Priority
To play Caitlyn at her full potential we recommend that you take runes that provide extra damage while improving her movement speed, especially with the all-important Fleet Footwork rune.
Regarding Caitlyn's build, we recommend in order of priority Berserker's leggings, Galeforce, Rapid Firecannon, Infinity Edge, and a Bloodthirster.
With Caitlyn your role will be to inflict a lot of damage. With her passive you will be able to inflict critical damage on a regular basis. This is also the case when you immobilize an enemy with your traps. Sona Q crosses the enemies, which will allow you to inflict damages from afar. Also to gain mobility, Son E throws a net that activates her passive and throws Caitlyn backwards. Finally her ultimate ability locks the enemy and inflicts heavy damage.
