Late Game Items
Spell Skill Priority
To play Katarina at her full potential, we recommend using runes that inflict extra damage and increase your magical penetration. The primordial rune "Electrocute" is ideal mixed with the rune "Sudden Impact". Regarding his build, in order of priority we advise you to buy the Sorcerer's Shoes, the Night Harvester, the Lich Bane's Flail, the Zhonya's Hourglass, the Void Staff and the Rabadon's Headpiece.
Thanks to her Daggers, Katarina can move quickly during a fight and can therefore easily kill a specific target. Her Q throws a blade at the enemy which bounces behind her. Katarina can easily Teleport with her E on her opponent, retrieve the blade and thus inflict twice as much damage. Finally, her W increases her movement speed and puts a blade on the ground, which amplifies her damage again. Moreover, when you kill an enemy, his passive is activated and greatly reduces the recovery time of his skills, so you can be sure to keep on killing.
Katarina's Ultimate ability throws multiple blades at the 3 closest enemies for several. This is a very strong ability in Teamfight, but it can be interrupted.

Picking up Daggers will significantly reduce Shunpo's cooldown.
Try waiting until the other team is distracted with fighting your team, and use Shunpo to teleport into the fray and unleash a devastating Death Lotus.
Using Shunpo on an allied Champion, Dagger, or minion can be a great escape tactic.
Katarina Runes's abilities deal magic damage, so even if she's building Attack Damage items, get magic resistance to counter her.
